Kim Minjoon will go home beaming from left to right after achieving so many levels. The fantasy series The main character gained some good levels in the fake dungeon while fighting clay monsters. When he returns, he will also see Lee Sangjin’s sulky face in The Dark Mage’s Return to Enlistment Chapter 49
Kim was cunning and greedy in the previous chapter, killing all the monsters herself and getting bonus experience points. However, it’s not of great consequence to anyone since this is a world with no consequences and no real threats. Even if Kim Minjoon were the only soldier in the world, there would be no problem with the mortality rate.
And that’s one of the problems with modern/urban imaginaries, and the scale is so large that it’s hard to conceptualize. But then again, today’s popular fantasy is also self-insert. A fantasy world is created more as a proxy for the game, with every character acting like an NPC.
Chapter 49: The dark magician’s return to the army
Chapter 49 of The Dark Mage’s Return to Enlistment will show what offers await the rising star. Kim Minjun’s recent performance against his superiors was a one-sided battle. He just needs to cover his whip with demonic energy, and his teammate is one of them, possibly even injured.
The superior he was fighting for had a good reputation in the military and he was also very proud of it. Furthermore, his superior also appreciated himself because he showed great ability after learning how to use magic. However, the old man feels a bit threatened by rising star Minjun, who is the talk of the whole town.
Minjun was told by one of his colleagues to be gentle with the man, or he would face the consequences. Minjun, with a childish attitude, agreed to his request, but he said that he would only take one hit from him. During the fight, after being hit, he decided to use some of his powers against the old man who had surpassed himself.
Summary of chapter 48 of The Dark Magician Returns to the Army
The Dark Mage’s Return to Enlistment Chapter 48 showed us a bit of the hardships in Kim Minjung’s past life. Especially his fight with a beast called the Dark Knight gave him a difficult time when Kim was a summoned hero in that world. The action series doesn’t delve into Kim Minjung’s past from that point on, but we do get snippets of it from time to time.
We also got to see a military superior witness Lee Sangjin’s greed. And with what happens later in this chapter, some people might even think that the title of this chapter is ‘Greed’. Even the MC is greedy for experience and won’t let his subordinates have a portion of that experience in any way, shape or form.
And just like we said at the beginning of the article, this is a game world with no real consequences. And with the dungeon diving, which could be considered a mock drill, we just had some boring monster getting beaten around. Perhaps the story’s self-awareness of this situation is what makes things a little funny in the end, but otherwise not much happens.
