Galactic Dark Net

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

When the last prodigy level esper on Earth disappeared, Earth was in deep trouble of becoming another species’ colony. The ordinary Han, with his intelligence and hardworking character, was able to make a fortune after “accidentally” stepping into the world of dark net, later purchasing an esper power crystal that brought him the ultimate power that changed the fate of the universe.

Dark net is a subset of the Deep Web that is not only not indexed by traditional search engines, but that also requires special tools like specific proxy or authentication to gain access. Dark net is not restricted by any law or morals, so the dark net market has everything that is prohibited by the law. Drugs, slaves, firearms, uranium, bioweapons, rare animals, human testing, assassination, and the list goes on. During the year of 2075 on Earth, Han Lang logged into the largest hyperspace dark net market, and our story begins.

Starts off nice and interesting, quickly goes downhill as the entire universe bends over to give free powerups to the MC and only the MC.

Also concepts and ideas the MC comes up with are constantly praised and presented as amazing... but they're so blatantly simple, in the entire earth, only he can come up with that? really?

Dropped at roughly the point where he randomly falls into a hole and gets free junk worth 2 months of the entire earth's income. Skimmed through a bit further and its just constantly... more>> the MC showing off and literally being the only person on earth with the ability to do anything.

Cannot recommend this to anyone that likes stories to make some amount of sense. <<less

Something every Wuxia Author needs to learn from!

This is such an amazing novel! I have no regrets. This is truly one of the best Chinese Novels out there.

Character development : 4/5

Action 5/5

Comedy 4/5 The Comedy is amazing and really makes you laugh. It brings a lot of relief when reading this type of story.

Bromance 4/5 The strong bonds he makes are good and are pretty badass together but I hope they don’t get discarded later.

The Romance is amazing! My gosh a Harem would ruin this... more>> Perfection so I am relieved its focused on one girl! The Heroine has me Fan Girling over there moments together. She's literally like a adorable shy cat! So Moe!
Spoiler

The Romance is profound in a way. Its very deep. A girl who has an OP power but a tragedy because she can’t touch anyone. She may act like a Tomboy Oujousama but she does not act spoil at all. There’s more to her then meets the eye. I hope the Author puts her into good use!

[collapse]

This Novel is very well thought of and things are heavily foreshadowed since chapter 1. The Author makes it clear and nothing feels forced and unnecessary. (So Far)

Its a dark yet realistic.

The Main Character is a completely airhead and very innocent he also is very kind but won’t show mercy to those who try to harm him or those around him. That’s what I like about him.

I truly believe this deserves a Anime or Manha Adoption at least. The Novel is very similar to The Breaker. Thats what it reminds me of. To write a complicated futuristic World and simplifying for others easy to read. It gives a Japanese and Chinese feeling too. Read this and support the Translator and Author!
Spoiler

He inherits the power of a Dark Void 6th Rank Warlord. Who once turned the Galaxy upside down. He becomes not just stronger then Earth Hero but the entire Milky Way Galaxy! Before you know it he inherits Dark King abilities who once nearly destroyed the Galaxy Alliance! He was already stronger then the Hero then imagine just how OP he is!

Its amazing how Han Teachers Dark Walker and Path were both connected to Han predecessor Dark Void. Being of the Old Generation and long retired. They nurture and teach Han becoming a Monster!

[collapse]

Earth is no longer consider a planet but a country in the entire Galaxy. What worst Earth is nothing but a bunch if Upstart Nobles who are dirty poor noobs! Its no exagerration to say this! But Han somehow becomes the riches guy on earth with the Galaxy Dark Net! You’ll see him grow and learn and even visit other Countries.

Arghhh... I don't get how people can rate this story so f**king highly. It's a highly amateurish work, but the premise is interesting. But that's the only thing it's got going for it, an interesting premise.

Constantly throughout the story, the author keeps repeating things about the MC, about how he's "trained on the verge of life and death and that's why he'll beat the enemy". And when I say constantly it's really no joke. It's been repeated at least 6 times in the 35 chapters I've read. Everytime, taking... more>> up an entire paragraph about how the enemy is so strong willed and I don't know what.

The author also keeps rewarding the MC with various benefits, all with the pretext that he worked hard for it, and that none his age is as hard working as him. Stop telling me about the f**king character, stop trying hard to make me cheer for him. Show his actions, show his hard work, show his struggles, make me naturally root for him. But the author obviously can't do that, cause he doesn't ever let the reader think. He doesn't ever lead the reader draw his own conclusions and frankly, it's really boring.

Overall the story just lacks effort, and it saddens me, because as I said earlier the premise is really f**king good. But that tends to be a trend with webnovels and the like. Good ideas, but no writing skills to act on them, resulting in a work that doesn't even qualify as a solid amateur work.

There are far better webnovels out there, that manage to capture both a good story and good writing. So I would recommend that you don't waste your time on this one. It will only serve to aggrevate you. <<less

Reviewed after c78, rated 5.

It might be subjective of me, but I consider this novel as having exceptional ideas and solid development. Just the beginning arc shocked me out: selling drug price indices! I studied economics for years and as a trader knows that people are willing to pay top price for whatever data, but I never thought that there's such a huge potential in the black market. What a retard I am. Regardless of whether it is applicable or not in real life, that was a great idea.... more>>

In further chapter, the author again and again showed his innovative mind, especially with the twist on MC love interest. Although we are not yet arrived at the point where we can say that everything resolved satisfactorily, but that indicates well-thought plot and hooks.

However, I consider the narrative as a bit lacking. For a novel with "dark" on its title, its not dark enough for me. The ominous feeling was kind of reduced by the underlying comedic nuances and MC OP-ness; and there's nothing that offset it so far. The pace was just perfect, though.

Galactic Dark Net might be suitable to the taste of people who need to take a break from monotony and fans of superhero stories, but not exactly for people who will question every step, every detail. Fair warning: there were (minor?) matters that were brushed off by the author which we don't know the reason as of yet whether it was considered as having no significance to the main plot line or if future chapters will revisit it. In the style of superhero stories, the world construct was being told incrementally and people's motives tend to be hidden till the related arc nears/begins.

The first few chapters, before the protagonist gets his abilities, are intense. The several following chapters are somewhat intriguing. Afterwards, it's boring. Most people seem to love the story, though, so there's a big chance that you will too.

My biggest complaint is that the MC is too straightforwardly OP. He obtains an SSS-ranked power, which has previously dominated the galaxy, and everyone can see that he has it. Since his ability trumps all other abilities, there's not much thrill in seeing him become powerful, especially after drug injections make... more>> him even more OP. His quickly improving strength, caused in large part by his method of acquiring his power, makes his journey even less interesting. Altogether, there'd be something wrong if he DIDN'T become the most fearsome guy in the galaxy.

That alone might not have stopped me from reading the story. However, characters are flat and stereotypical, as are the MC's interactions with them and their interactions with each other. Influential elders pin their dreams on the MC, the world oohs and aahs at him, and so on. The story is written like a somewhat bad amateur work.

The second ark is Galactic Competition. I could say I'm entertained with this second ark.

The story start to develop there will be much more revealed probably in near future story, BUT! there also some 'forced' development or I might say power of plot armor although it's not significant, I'm slightly bothered by it, oh well, probably it's just me anyway.

looking forward to the next ark, my only hope is this story won't became too generic and keep following the same pattern. For now, the story pretty much... more>> enjoyable.

Rate 4. 5 stars, previously is 3. 5, rounded to 5 stars, the 0. 5 stars is because those slightly forced development, hehe

once again, the translator did well, although right now the translator it seems a bit 'demanding'
------------------------------------------------------------

At first it's pretty good novel, but then it became generic OP level-up, beat the sh*t outta of people, learn something that OP himself... it's became too generic.

The first ark is good, talking about so-called 'dark net' and MC trying his best to gain some money and power stuff from it, even though the one of questionable part is
Spoiler

There is not much explanation about MC parent, her mother gave flashdisk that contain 'dark net' access. where did she get it? for what reason? there is no clear explanation to it

[collapse]

As the story goes, as you can expect... the MC got buffed up, got OP-ed, and stuff.
it's not bad, but later on the 'dark net' essence is gone, it's simply became foreshadow, there is not much interaction with 'dark net' anymore, the MC just use it to contact his friend from 'dark net'.
And then, 'forced' power up. MC obtain 'drug', weapon, and martial art that sooooooo OP, I understand as their friend want to help MC but there is no 'firm' or clear base explanation about those power like

Spoiler

The miracle drug that help MC to awake from coma after fight to death, it's just said "this is powerful drug, create with mythical item and sh*t, this is so powerful!" something like that. and the martial art too, it's too shallow, there is no clear explanation, it's just said "powerful forbidden martial art, this is so OP that no need for technique, just beat the crap out of people with natural instinct!" I was like 'the f**k is this bullsh*ts'

[collapse]

I lost interest at forced power up, it's became so boring, and I can guess easily about what the next thing about to be happen.

but, it doesn't meant that I completely lose interest at this, it just... not going to be my 'must read' everyday, probably I'm going to check it every once in a week

The translation did their job very well, they deserve some digital cookies (or donate them), keep up your good work.

3. 5/5. good potential, but still premature story. rounded up to 4/5. <<less

I read 45 chapters. While story is good, world is interesting and I love xianxia novels, this novel has some huge plot holes: where the hell are guns?? Why does MC’s enemies do not use any ranged weapon to kill him easily? It’s supposed to be advanced technological era, but people fight with fists, knives and other melee weapons. While espers, who appeared in the story, have better physical capabilities than normal people, they are not faster than bullet. If you want to kill esper (at least below 4 star),... more>> one bullet in the head can do the job perfectly. So what the hell is going on, am I missing something?

Update (with few spoilers) : Sooo in chapter 59 author explained why firearms were less effective against espers (they are somewhat protected with source energy). But heavy caliber bullets, grenades, poison gas still damage them, so that does not explain well enough the rare usage of ranged weapons (especially during Han's fight with raiders). For example sniper could kill esper with heavy caliber bullets from afar, before esper even reacted. There are many other ways ranged weapons could be used against espers, so this was only one example. Still at least this explanation addressed the problem, so I'll increase my rating by one star.

I'd go with 2/5 on that.

It's a typical chinese webnovel, spiked with our typical and known in this kind of wordpiece tropefest.

I was considering 3/5. But I've noticed a visual help while hovering mouse between them. 3 is ok. 2 is poor.

... more>> And it is poor.

I was very hyped about the sci-fI stuff, usually the stuff I find here is either fantasy "with game elements" or another "Gantz" breed. This one was not.

We got our everyday normal Joe, wich is actually my favourite type of MC. He has some backstory, because his mother, as far as I know, is somewhat mysterious, and the dude has gotten involved with the Dark Net.

And this was the first major blow for me. I've liked his initial attitude toward it, but then, one thing led to another and apparently all Big Bosses of the Galactic Black Market are carefree goodies who had pushed unimaginable amount of resources and effort for this one little guy, wich had steered him to OPness.

Then we learn MC is uberuberrarebreed of espeer. Yuck. PtuI ptui, I take back the regular Joe badge.

The guy has op power, got some decent gear and op martial arts, and went to the ruins. It was fine, it was interesting... then he met the Big Bad of the said ruins. Another major blow.

One of the thing I dislike about this novel, is the pace at wich MC get's stronger and stronger, wich makes everyone else seem like they are tossing around idiot balls. He got his first romantic interest, wich was written well enough for me to keep my interest in the novel a bit longer... but I bet it was dumbed down later.

Oh, and the morality of this novel is simply silly.

I was never in China, so I won't judge, but it's something I've noticed in a lot of chinese novels. MC = right. Everything else is wrong. Some dude kills ppl of his own plans = bad. MC kills ppl because they are in his way of greatness = justified.

It was pointed out time by time, that what MC is doing is illegal and banned and bad, but for some reason it was all fine and dandy, and none of his opponents forces (not talking about individuals here) is in blank over it.

We live in the world where Trump gets destroyed because of some old recording of his one talk about woman (not a Trump fan btw, just using an example), but in the future of inter-solar-system, wholegalactic civilisation... nobody ever found out that there's something fishy about this guy's sudden deep pockets and resources wich happened on a planet so poor technologicaly, that it's insane.

I might try to get up-to-date with this. Literally, because I'm unable to find anything to read atm here, and at least I know this sucks but who knows, there might be some interesting element - I've got a soft spot for "Presented World gimmicks or mechanics". <<less

Nice concept about dark net. Had a good start, apart from that MC becomes OP too fast, not only that, he has 4 super abilities. Writing is childish, fight scenes are boring with MC thinking that hes the only one putting his life on the line. Amazed at how it has such high rating.

Good idea for a story, delivery was bad.

Amateur work very contradictory. Would say one thing and then turn around and write the opposite in the same chapter or next.

A lot of things were not stated clearly. Think author tried to be funny a few times but really wasn't.

A lot of instances made no sense if one would take a few seconds and think about it or visualize it.

Just felt like he was pulling way too much out of his *** way too frequently so early in... more>> the novel.

If you are not reading this because it is not the normal xianxia, you are missing out this wonderful novel.

Everything about this novel is above average, be it the characters, plot, world building, they are all very good. And most of all, it is written and presented very well.

So don't worry about it being little different from normal because this is different but better than normal stuffs.

Cucumber strips! A job well done!

Overall 5/5
Story: It is unlike other novels that don't explain political difference well and simply for no reason expect humanity to be existant only on earth. Beat part the action sequences are on point as of c84

Character development: steady unbroken so far. Could have been better but no complains. ¶=

"The story starts dark by depicting illegal drugs, slavery, organ traffic etc, and the MC taking advantage of this to illegaly acquire his own super power which after a registration with the government he discovers to be extremely powerful, in commemoration to his success he invites a few friends to party and hear from one of them how their gradparent is sick and normal doctors cant cure him, he then commits to aquire illegal drugs (brain fluid from a young esper) for his friend's grandpa. immediatly after a small raid on earth happens, and all Espers present in the area start throwing themselfs at the raiders with total disregard for their own safety and their next of kin, including the MC, to "heroically" save normal humans from the raiding espers when there is about 1/100 000 espers/normals on earth, begginer MC gets most of the credit. Later when acquiring the "medicine" fresh from a visible 21yr old male strapped to chair with a drill on his skull from the dark net, he light comments on the cruelty of the methods to the vendor, who replies saying the dude is a pedophile. "

[collapse]

The first few chapters are quite decent (up to chapter 12 when he gets through a exam of his powers) but after, terrible plotholes immediatly show up and keep appearing and being reaffirmed in every following chapter that I read:

> They seem to fight hand-to-hand instead of using guns in yr 2075 despite most espers being not much diferent from normal humans while being severy outnumbered (1/100000) and mentioning galatic battleships in the earlier chapters, somehow only espers can fight espers, go figure.

> The moral standard is f**ked up as in conveniently infantile and flexible to justify the MC and/or somehow villainize the opposition.

The background had potential, but... there seems to be no depth, the autor managed to ruin this somehow. It baffles me to see so many 5 star reviews when I question the worth in translating this. <<less

Definitely worth a read. It is hard to dislike this novel. Till now, I have read very very few LNs with story revolving around thematic areas of patriotism. This LN gives a new spin to the survival theme. Our MC is an esper who has awesome SSS type power. Unfortunately, he is from Earth. Which is one of the weakest planets in the Galaxy Union (union of all the human planets which are called 'countries'). So there is always pressure from other bigger planets to colonize earth. There are a... more>> very few novels which can get your blood boiling when you read them. But this is one of those LNs. There is definitely some big overarching story here apart from the Patriotic 'earth vs other big bad planets'. This will probably be revealed later on. Still too early to say where the story will be headed. However, it is sheer joy to read this cathartic action packed bloody violent LN.

Very very good and this is so different from other "Esper" novels.
While other Esper novels gives shounen novel feeling with their kid MC and comedical evil antoganist like the world turns around them and MC says "check my power b. Tch!",
this novel, GDN, gives feeling of Seinen novel with its politics and milky way and our single MC in the ocean of it while he rises and tries to say "I'm here. "

1- Author's entertaining and smooth writings skills,
2- Overpowered Main Character.
when... more>> these 2 combined it makes my reading pleasure turn on.

this is not a story
3- where there is op MC, but full of bullsh*t and nonsense things. Where author gives feeling of the more bullsh*t a spout the more intruiging it would become (quite contrary).
4- where there is op MC, but he's hiding his abilities or there is some stupid restriction or he is naive, coward weak or get beaten against stupid girls, or there is stupid daily life things, or meaningless story flow.
5- where there is good writings skills, but stupid weak MC, does daily boring stuff or gets stronger while many times gets beaten.
6- where there isn't op MC, nor good writings skills.

This is a story which is truly very good! <<less

Fantastic read. So refreshing to see something new out there. I have no doubt that there's plenty of diversity for untranslated novels, but when it comes to the stuff translators are choosing now they're all the same transmigration/xianxia/sect/cultivation novels.

Galactic Dark Net is a fantastically unique story that keeps the same action/adventure/level up nature that we all know and love, but puts it in a fantastical alternative sci-fI earth without copying any of the overdone tropes that pop up in so many other wuxia novels.

Check it out if you're... more>> sick of reading the same thing over and over and looking for something new, highly recommended.

After having read many novels, I had become a bit sceptic when someone told me they found a good story. I assumed (incorrectly it seems) that all the good novels are already being translated by wuxiaworld, gravity tales, xianxiaworld and the likes. But, after coming to "noodle town" I have been amazed. Two very beautifully written stories are translated about which I never had heard before. Thanks to noodletranslations for this treat. I know that most good novels tend to go "bad" after a few hundred chapters, so a review... more>> on ch 66 is not very convincing, BUT so far worth the time invested to read it.

After a 100 chapters, it is still good! The novel is a true gem. Not even once did I want to stop reading it. It has action (battles, tests, etc.), it has some possibilities for a romance (maybe) and is fun (the MC isn't one of these obnoxious characters - thank god - but is still very funny). The side characters are well developed, they aren't just there to fill the space. The good thing is that the possible female lead cannot be exchanged for a sexy lamp - she... more>> too has a back story, her own circumstances and an awsome power. I really recomend it.

Really interesting novel. I can honestly say that this story is very united and very much a ‘Hero’s tale’ its a bunch of goody two shoes that don’t mind getting their hands dirty. Its a good step back from the usual Xianxia and Xuanhaun that is all hack and slash with no substance.

I’ve currently read up to 49 chapters and eagerly waiting for chapter 50!

The story building is nice, not fast not slow. The action comes fairly early but not to often. The romance? Yes it actually shows glimpses... more>> of romance in the first dozen chapters and is quite nicely done! It doesn’t just start with a woman falling for the MC for no damn reason swooning over him in an instance, it gives a plausible reason for her coming affections and why she’s possibly attracted to the MC; it really makes you want to see if the relationship develops. I’m hoping they at least become friends I know they’ll be close in some way.

The MC power? Very unique not forced and not just a random power up that’s SO OP its disastrous. Though you can see how he’ll get it a mile coming the journey is worth it. The determination and the perseverance is admirable.

Though a negative for me was that the MC suddenly developed something contradictory to his original position forming a Spiderman mentality from an Uncle Ben saying. Its not overly forced and IMO something you can overlook.

I like it when the MC goes through hard times and pisses off a lot of other espers! Though that last one might be inherent

Spoiler

not just cause he’s an MC in a CN novel but the nature of his ability as well

[collapse]

There are a few loose ends early on that don't have any answers and where (seemingly) totally worthless and or just an excuse to allow for the story to develop on a certain path. Though I don't mind, I certainly hope this doesn't become a trend.

A really great novel that gives characters, and builds them and establishes great connections with the readers. The world/setting is a little dark, but generally speaking the story itself is can be fun and with some comedic relief (so far in the raws anyway) with lots of kick ass moments.

The current Translator is doing a great job, and should get some support as well.
