Hisshou Dungeon Unei Houhou
October 7, 2016

Wow, where do I start with this? At first I was quite liking it, it was a dungeon management story where the newly appointed master displays all his cunning just to stay alive in the face of adversity... for a few chapters.

Then it was a mess. It was romantic comedy harem with cookie cutter personalities. It was poorly written, obtuse politics in an unpolished world. It was slice-of-life Japanese-culture-is-best-culture self fellatio. All throw into a pot and stirred around without accounting for taste. If you wanted to read something that... more>> had to do with a "dungeon" at all avoid this title entirely.

This is pure wish fulfillment for building a Japanese town and harem in the middle of a fantasy setting, all without any of the world building required for such a feat. <<less

Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?

Kumo ain't no typical reincarnator. Nai wa~!

Kumo is a spider. Most of the webnovel is written from her perspective and is fully embodied with our lovable spider's personality. Instead of a cheat-like god-given ability, Kumo spends a huge amount of time grinding skills and exploiting all the game-like systems she encounters. Later on, the story gets quite fragmented and can be confusing when placing a timeline to it all.

The characters are colorful and interesting, though besides Kumo they tend to lack development. The overall plot isn't very shocking but serves... more>> its purpose. While not perfect it's a helluva good read filled to the brim with character quirks and reads somewhere between a reincarnated hero and a VRMMO story. <<less

Slave Harem in the Labyrinth of the Other World

It's not slow, it's stagnant. The characters are entirely 2D with no development. Every chapter is spent experimenting in the dungeons or kitchen and doing some side ecchi. The experiments take entire chapters and usually detail one mechanic out of one system or unveil one usage of one item. Conversely, romance can be written off in one line. There's no story because it doesn't know where's its going or what to focus on.

It's bad - there's no direction, no development, and no point. The translations and writing are passable, and... more>> it may even be a decent read for a short while. The problem is, I can't remember what chapter I left off on because they all read the same way. It's mind numbingly boring and I implore of you to find something more stimulating to waste your time on. <<less

9 Heavenly Thunder Manual
August 3, 2016
Status: c90
A pretty typical adult xianxia with lots of dudes exploding into fountains of gore and bone, women being raped silly, and mysterious cultivating methods surpassing the bounds of ranks (but only by one or two, duh).

It's okay, pretty standard fare except for what most reviewers are complaining about. In the second arc the main character travels to Kou - a country modeled after Japan - and yes, racism ensues. It's really not a big deal what with fantasy world and overall mature themes already present.

Warlock of the Magus World

I wanted to like this one. I really did. Warlock of the Magus World shares a similar reincarnation plot as many others, though this world has a bit more flesh in the setting and fantasy systems it operates on. The magic systems and power progression are fascinating, and the main character is cold and ruthless - unlike a typical hero.

However, all of the interesting and intelligent analysis is covered by "lol A.I. chip." The main character's particular cheat is to skip all explanations on how he actually becomes more powerful... more>> or does things better than others.

If that somehow doesn't bother you, by all means it's a serviceable reincarnation adventure story with some neat mechanical developments. <<less
