The 1st chapter of the translated novel got me interested and so I began reading the raws of this novel. I believe I am at around 380 or so of this novel. This is my very first review and I feel compelled to give this review after reading some of the not so nice reviews out there.
This has gender bender and harem in it. But the MC is still a male through and through although he looks pretty. He still gets lots of chicks so yea.
This story is sufficiently compelling. The MC is cool and badass enough. The decisions he makes are pretty logically given his background of what he had suffered or experienced during his "previous life".
The fights are cool and you do see some character development as he pretty much retains his cold and ruthless nature but slowly changes for the better. His summons are quite funny... at least some of them.
This story has alot of spoof, parody or elements we or at least most of us know about. Many of the summons, and even skills come from other popular stories, anime, manga out there so there will be some sense of familiarity.
Oh there is quite a fair amount of s*x or erotic scenes. =)
5/5 and a good read. The moment I started reading it, I couldn't stop. Given that I have read almost every popular novel out there, I would say this is a pretty good one. Do give it a try.
Most of the light novels out there are not fully translated yet. Most of the time the reviewers can only give reviews up to the most recent translation. Heavenly Jewel Change [HJC] on the other hand was compelling enough for me to put up the Chinese raws to try and continue reading where the translations stopped. On top of that, I actually finished the story. That says alot.
I am not going to go into the story. I mean it is a Xianxia type of story so what do you really expect right? I finished the story about maybe a month or two ago. As far as I recall, the story is basically one of those MCs with a OP innate ability and went on to get more and more OP. It has comedy and harem. I like to read light hearted stuff. I really dont mind a funny or goofy MC. Being a bit of a harem-ish type of story fits my taste as well. I could never figure out why would anyone hate it. I mean, monogamy relationship is all well and good but the strong gets all the girls in the real life. This happens in the animal kingdom and even ancient kings. So for the story to have those settings seemed perfectly acceptable to me.
5/5. Best story ever. Not your usual "I kill your whole family" Chinese web novel. You can read the synopsis from the other reviews. I have to say that to appreciate this story fully you may need to know Chinese because a lot of the songs he writes, the people he refers to, the poems, advertisements, variety shows, etc etc are all from the actual world. Google and youtube helps a lot to hear that was what the song was about. I am not a Chinese from China and so I have problems struggling with some of the references but nothing google cant solve.
