I don't understand how people are enjoying this story and it is getting all positive reviews.

... more>>

When the story first starts the MC narrates how a chimney emitting smoke reminds him of ejaculation. Then he explains how due to having too few pairs of underwear and he had a wet dream so now he is walking around town soaked in semen. Then he tells us exactly how this makes his penis feel.

The story explains that men go to one school to learn how to fight, plant and harvest food, etc., to 'survive' as they put it. Women on the other hand go to a different school to learn singing, dancing, painting, etc. Guys are taught how to put food on the table while girls are taught how to enjoy the food.

The icing on the cake is how men in the story are portrayed as mindless swine that can only think of sex. The MC passes by a female teacher and the scent wafting off of her body gives him an errection. When he gets to class every guy in the class is lined up at the window masturbating to the sight of the female teacher.


This is just the first two chapters so maybe the story gets better but I won't be reading it regardless. <<less

If you want to know why the novel A Journy to the West is so famous in China, I really suggests you to read this novel first. I find the book Castle of Black Iron is retranslated by Qidian International and the new authorized translation is good.

The story is featured with oriental xuanhuan folklores. A story full of imaginations. After reading it, I even want to enter meditation myself to practice my own cultivation so as to be a powerful man. This book really reminds me of ... more>> the significance of the Mental Arithmetic Using an Abacus that may enhance my spiritual energy.

I also consider that each fruit from the Manjusaka Karma Wanguo Tree is a wonderful experience that would make each aspect of me enhanced. Really challenging~~ <<less

This novel is one of those that has a mediocre start, but manages to get into a good pace only to be ruined by the author peddling an agenda. At the face of it, this is a post apocalyptic steampunk novel, but it's not all science. There's some mysterious acupuncture point that can be unlocked to cultivate. And here's the biggest deal breaker - extreme patriotism.

While unlike certain other novels out there there's isn't much, if any, racism, the novel keeps praising China to the extent that you'd think it... more>> was sponsored by the PRC. According to the novel, the Chinese are at the forefront of technology, military strength, culture, world dominance, yelling " I your father"and pretty much everything else. It's fine for a while, be when you see this agenda being pushed over hundreds of chapters it will get on your nerves even if you're all for the PRC. Also the MC has no idea of a family unit and literally goes around spraying his seed all over the place, to any woman willing (and there are a few hundreds) <<less

The story is a post apocalyptic futuristic cultivation novel with a steampunk flavour.

Briefly summarized: The modern world as we know it 'changed' by something called 'The Star of God' and the world was set back to the early industrialized era. Meaning there's steam power, but no electricity. Tectonic plates also shifted and the world is no longer the same, countries and geography changed. The change was a Calamity, as many beasts and mutants rose up to power and devastated 'mankind's world domination'.

And the story of our protagonist is set at... more>> 889 AC (After Calamity).

The author does a nice job of building up the world, getting you into the story. Although it's a little vulgar at times, it's not offputting and it does set the tone to what kind of world Zhang Tie lives in. (let's just say it's a 'hard' life)

The game element of the story doesn't appear until chapter 14. The cultivation system in this novel appears to be based on lighting up points in your body, a not unfamiliar system if you've read more xuanhuan novels. This is in line with traditional chinese medicine (meridians/acupuncture). The game element also has a rather familiar ring to it, as it's concept has been used often in other stories. Briefly put, the protagonist obtained a 'space' of his own wherein he can create his own world, for now filling it with plants, and he has to fulfill some conditions before he can make better use of it.

Volume 1 basically introduces the world and the cheat the protagonist gained.

So far I'm enjoying the story. It's really still in it's infant shoes (translation wise obviously). Other than thinking it's a fairly ok story so far, there's really not much else to tell. I do think you should give it a try, particularly if you like xuanhuan stories and don't mind the game element of it. <<less

Easy going story where MC is not op and more of a ambitious person wanting to better himself and help his family. Not sure how far ahead the other review is, but at the current volume I don't see the overwhelming patriotism as mentioned. Nor is there any spreading of the MC's seeds, unless they're talking about his farming... Any way so far its a good read.
