God and Devil World

If you can look past the sexism and racism the novel is actually very very good. Most of the problems and poor reviews are from only these two points. Even still basically the whole world shitted on china from the 1600s to now (The Japanese are basically the equivalent of holocaust deniers and protected and honored their version of hilter) and never apologized or even acknowledge most of it so if you know the history the racism is more realistic then bad.

But hey, you're Novel Updates, basically every... more>> novel here is sexist towards women in varying degrees alongside some fantasy hidden racism.

Big harem, op MC, extremely ruthless but still cares about the general state of humanity and close friends, MC is a king with a big following in a post apoc world, fun times don't take it too seriously. <<less

I have mixed thoughts. However, I deem it a 5 except for one flaw. It is well translated/written. The world is interesting, the setting is great, the main characters abilities are great as well. Other characters and even the main is for the short of amount of time decently memorable and fleshed out.

But it suffers from a partially classic Japanese protagonist even though it doesn't even make sense here. You just became basically a living god after suffering as an overworked burntout white collar worker(virgin? its not clear or... more>> I missed it but I imagine it is so), power trip at least a little please. He doesn't make his own choices at all and gets swept up in everyone around him even though he's OP as hell. If you can get over that as I can then you will love this. If you can't you'll hate it.

Will edit if his personality evolves at all but I'm not expecting it.

TLDR: if you can put up with a character that leans a little too closely to the japanese MC trope then you'll enjoy this story as everything else about it is fantastic. <<less

You get what you came for. OP MC with cool fantasy setting, harem with the first girl he sleeps regularly with and doesn't work much for. And an mc too lazy to really deal with the world outside of his house, though if people come to bother him he handles it well.

Its slice of life with an OP MC, and in that category its a nice chill read. Sure it lacks some characterization but I don't think this kind of novel needs anything too deep or complicated to be a... more>> great read. <<less

Law of the Devil

Pros:

-Soild character develop.
-For the most part no deus ex.
-MC is actually a reincarnated person and not just an excuse for a bad author to use modern earth terms and language or to make a character illogically op.
-MC incorporates past knowledge without become a techonlogy or mary sue
-No creepiness from MC
-There are actual characters smarter and more resourceful then the MC even though the MC is portrayed as intelligent
-MC understands and has limits and has people to fill them, i.e he's not an edison... more>> and a telsa(like so many MC are made out to be) but rather recruits telsaes as an edison(without being a major douche) if you understand that reference
minor pro spoilers
Spoiler

-Nice Kingdom building no one man army crap
-MC becomes full fledged mage so no worries on that
-King Making

[collapse]
Cons
-Some silly names
-some translation is pretty poor but the quality picks up

Really its one of the better novels I've read on here if you ignore the silly names. Honestly almost all the negative reviews are because of silly names ruining immersion(i.e his mentor is named gandalf) if you can't handle that then don't read I guess. I got over pretty quick but who knows. <<less

I am the Monarch

I'm definitely biased when it comes to second chance novels, I love them. So I'll only say the one negative its that the MC seems to be too talented with predictions that aren't related to his previous life's knowledge. Like his interactions with high ranked people and stuff. It would make sense if he was talented in his previous life at that, but he wasn't. I dunno where he gets it from, but similar to transcending the nine heavens if you can accept the sudden character becomes a genius shift... more>> its a fantastic read. <<less

My Ranch

Pace is slowish though that might be the illusion of only 13 chapters and me wishing for more constantly, really its a nicely done modern cultivation story, and just a well written story in general.

MC has a distinct personality and doesn't feel fake, his cultivation abilities are very cool and the whole thing has a great feel.

Good for its genre and the yandere harem is very welcome.

Overall its good but I'll list the issues, because if you can get over these few issues than the novel will be great for you, some of the issues may even be a plus for you depending on your tastes.

in relation to Tragedy:

Spoiler

Fake Tragedy, Main chars are generally immune and its just death all around him, in fact the mains have a good helping of Deus ex.
to MC:

MC is both underpowered and overpowered. His true enemies are so far above him its one of those, I won't even kill you scenarios, but he's overpowered when compared everyone else.

Also unfortunately classic Jap MC, though he is okay with killing for the most part. <<less

My Daoist Life

Nice slice of life cultivator novel in a modern farming setting. Relaxing and extremely interesting read of a young child discovering the Dao and Qi without actually understanding how special he is and still acting like a real child, though with a little badassery.

Also Finally a Xianxia villain that isn't on the lower spectrum of IQ

Spoiler

MC trashes villian? what does villian do? does he come back and try again? no...Does he go get friends? no...he gives up and cuts his losses like any normal person would do after almost dying.

Hokuou Kizoku to Moukinzuma no Yukiguni Karigurashi

A common issue is when they try to make the woman MC more tough they make the male MC weak. Here its not the case at all with both characters fleshed out nicely and the male MC isn't a wuss at all.(he only looks pretty)

Nice relaxing read and you get to know the character's pretty well. Recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing romance without any really forced events and just a natural flow.

Classic Amazing and interesting Japanese setting with an unfortunately classic Japanese character (I mean even back in the 1600s Japanese characters were terrible, I mean tales of genji is about a cuck not that theres that here)

MC isn't as bad as some Japanese are but he's bad enough that'll you'll get annoyed as you read the story to the point of quitting, and restarting when you have nothing else to read. Think Deathmarch MC but less OP and a lot more going with the flow.
