Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss

Description

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

She was a peerless genius in the 24th Century – all she needed was a silver needle and she could practically bring anyone back from the dead.

After an explosion, she crossed over into a strange world; everyone calls her “Miss.” The previous “Miss” before had no contractual spirit, was weak and incompetent, and even the fiancé comes over with a new love and bullies her?

Now that she has taken over, who dares to act so presumptuously around her? With needles in hand, the world is for her to own! Wherever she goes, miracles follow! However, she saved a pest. What was she thinking when she saved that man. His stunning demeanor and impeccable face is a huge contrast to his cruel actions. He tries all ways to win her over.

This is an interesting cross over story with some magic, romance and a black bellied miss as the main character.

I love jun wu yao and jun wu xie! I love shipping! Ahaha! It's a good story with good characters, I guess. Well, at the start it was typical of me to think about it as something like the usual chinese romance novel... Except, I rally love wu xie's character and all her slow romance with wu yao.

Spoiler

at this time, it's country vs country, not just big factions involving. Atters involving the middle realm and wu yao's real identity as the dark emperor. Wu xie fighting! Don't worry, when worst comes, big brother is there for you! Hahaha!!

I really like this novel and it's always exciting through each part of the story!! I've always been interested in these types of novels with spirit power, cultivation, spirit beasts, etc. This site actually has other novels that are also as amazing as this one and I also don't have to wait long for the updates because there's usually like 6 chapters updated each week! I'm actually quite glad I found this novel and will probably reread it after I'm done with the chapter updated for now.

Spoiler

The part with her finding each spirit beast is just too cute!! The first beast Lord Meh Meh was the cutest thing ever and the story got even better with him there and now we also have the cute bunny so it'll become way better in future chapters and I can't wait to read those adorable parts!!!

Spoiler

This appears to be like every other female revenge story, but is actually fairly decent since the female lead isn't OP, but she manages to stand on her own and acts fast and ruthlessly to protect those she cares about using her intellect and political influences, rather than just mercilessly beating them up with overwhelming strength.


The pacing is quite fast, and the tone isn't overly arrogant, bitter or dramatic, making it a very smooth read that easily wraps up each arc. The male lead is protective but not too overbearing since he isn't really present for a lot of the story. While the MC is more restrained since she has people she actually cares about and can settle grudges quickly. (Though it doesn't quite make sense, why someone who lived in isolation can understand human nature so well.)

Overall it's a nice story, the translations are good, and I'll keep it on my reading list, but I'm not quite sure if I'd follow it for +2000 chapters. 4/5

[collapse]
E: It's a series that's hard to put down at first, but once you do it's hard to get back in.

The MC is too OP and most of the story is people's shock when she overwhelms her opponents, even though the reader is never in doubt of her OPness. The plot itself is merely a backdrop while the main pull is having readers anticipate and revel in OPness of the MC and all the drama she creates. 3/5 <<less

Currently at chapter 53.

This novel isn't that good, at least for me. I think the rating is highly overrated. We got a female MC who know nothing about human relation so she just let herself got hugged by Mr. Creepy randomly throughout the chapters which is a BIG minus for me. Most of the male (except her family) are quite an asshole and the way MC interact with most of them is even worse. She's also wasteful which is one of the worst MC trait in my list.

All... more>> in all there is nothing that I like so far but a lot of thing that I hate. MC not strong. MC got very low EQ. No cuteness. No fluffy. BADDDDD romance. Still gonna continue reading it as 53 chapter of this novel feel like 15 chapter of other so it's a bit too early to call it a failure but so far so bad.

Spoiler

Edit: 78 and still nothing. Also Mr. Creepy is getting creepier and every comment there ship them, WOW. Am I the only one who feel that Mr. Creepy is absolutely disgusting? Or maybe I'm in the wrong?

Edit2: Mr. Creepy is closing in on becoming a fcking rapist instead, f**k this I'm out. WORST ROMANCE EVER. And I don't even want to know why the comments went KYA KYA on THAT.

Female version of Otherworldly Evil Monarch but instead of MC being an assassin she is genius doctor and has male MC love interest protector. So it is a fusion of Otherworldly Evil Monarch and The Demonic King Chases His Wife: The Rebellious Good-for-Nothing Miss, if you like these two you might like this one.

... more>>
Spoiler

Setting:
Let me elaborate on the similarities with OEM (Otherworldly Evil Monarch)
1. Names of the MC's: OEM - Jun Mo Xie GD:BBM - Jun Wo Xie
2. They are both OP people from the modern day that get reincarnated into a body of a useless young master of a declining military family in a kingdom
3. In both cases the head of the family is MC's grandfather and has two sons, one dead (MC's father) and one cripple in a wheelchair
4. And the plot is pretty similar at the beginning (but it stops quickly so don't worry it's not a complete copy of OEM, just similar at the beginning, it quickly becomes its own thing). There is arc where both MC's cure their cripple uncle and there is arc where in OEM the MC disappears and his grandpa summons the army and kills lots of enemy officials, in GD:BBM is same but opposite, here grandpa disapperas and MC brings the army. And that's the end to similarities, just add the protective OP male lead and you get GD:BBM.


Plot:
As I said above the plot begins similar with OEM but it quickly becomes its own thing. The good thing about this novel is that each arc is DIFFERENT, I was so tired of xinxia and novels of this genre (reincarnated female MC with OP male protector) in which the author finds the arc they know how to write and then rinse and repeat.


Characters:
MC - Very good and likable that has a goal and is an actual OP character. In a lot of these stories the MC is said to be some kind of OP assassin or something from the modern times but when she comes over to the other world she's nothing like what she is described to be and can't even take a single step without the OP protective main lead (I'm look at you TDKCHW:TRGNM (The Demonic King Chases His Wife: The Rebellious Good-for-Nothing Miss)), here the MC could completely dominate the lower realm if people from middle realm didn't want trouble with her. And she's kuudere (character that is cold, blunt, cynical on the outside but she is actually caring and nice on the inside).


OP male lead - He is used perfectly. He doesn't just hold MC's hand and helps her with everything, he just guides her in cultivation and protects her from middle realm enemies. And he doesn't appear a lot, like he is barely in the story, which is how it should be (I'm looking at you TDKCHW:TRGNM)

And the side characters are good an likable and get character development. Also they are not forgotten.


Overall:
This a very good story and THE best out of all reincarnated female MC with OP male protector stories, so if you're hesitant to start reading because of other sh*ty stories of its kind, give this one a try it may change your mind.


And the updates to translation are really frequent and you sometimes get a ton of chapters in one day (chapters are very short though)

It kind of surprises me how people in this site love/like this show. In my perspective, this just doesn't make sense. Although I admit that the main character is somewhat interesting with her "personality", and the writing style is quite good, everything else is sh*t. No well-defined plot, 1 dimensional antagonists, 1 dimensional side characters (with some background, which is a plus, admittedly), overpowered protagonists, currently-no-personality protagonist, and schemes that insult your intelligence (author wants to tell you that they are amazing schemes but they are actually either stupid, easy... more>> to create, or includes things that were not mentioned yet in the novel in order to somehow create the "wow, she's amazing" feeling). So yeah, it is a bad novel.

Excused Scoring:
Writing Style: 6
Story and Plot: 2
Characters: 3
Enjoyment: 5
Total: 4
= 2/5

P. S. FYI, I based my "rounding-off" (for lack of better word) from the way my grades are converted, e. G. ,
10 == 5 stars
8 = x < 10 == 4 stars
6 = x < 8 == 3 stars

P. S. S. I am very much in awe with and would like to express my gratitude to the translator group and the sponsors but sadly, I don't include these to my ratings.

Edit: I will change my score for "characters" since I think 2 is too low a score for characters that have at least some sort of personalities (aka flat characters) and backdrops (that are just excuses for mindless plots later in the story).

What I liked:
1. Scheming/Revenge. This book has one of the most satisfying face-slappings of the entire genre. This novel is all about watching the MC scheme, and seeing the enemy unknowingly fall into her trap. Seriously, the way everything is set up makes the enemy's downfall feel so good.
2. Plot twists. A lot of the arcs end in an amazing plot twist that just blows your mind.
3. Well written. The translator does an amazing job (read the translations up to ~500). And the Chinese author's writing is pretty decent too.

4. MC Character growth. It was nice to see MC slowly open up and fully trust those around her.
5. Page turner. Some arcs start slow. But besides that, it's rapid action all the way through.

What could be improved:
1. Flat side characters. I had a hard time telling the side characters apart from each other until 1000 chapters in.
2. Ending was cliche. It felt disappointing, since I saw it coming from a mile away. But it could have been worse.
3. Slow romance. As in love-interest-appears-once-every-200-chapters kind of slow. But when it does happen, it's adorable.
4. Arcs can start slowly. The first ~20 chapters of some arcs feel like an info dump. I know it's setting the scene for the face slapping later, but sometimes it was a real chore to get through.

It's still early, but it's off to a great start. The heroine has a dark past and is a very strong character that doesn't go googly eyes at a handsome guy. Some parts of it may seem abnormal like the MC dragging herself despite all her pain and broken bones. But I guess that can be attributed to her dark past, and she may be used to the pain. I'm looking forward to seeing the growth of her character and this world. The translations are also very smooth, so... more>> it's easy to read. However, the chapters are very short.

When I first read the story, I thought it was somehow similar to those time-traveling stories out there but apparently the author proved me wrong. The pacing of the story is really great. The plot was well thought out and the connection of each events is reasonable and not something that just popped out for the sake of creating connection. The MC and her team's improvement though fast but they have the determination and will to be at the top. Even the development of the MC's personality is... more>> quite great and her actions are reasoned out and done beautifully. There were times when I even teared up on how the MC's EQ improved to the people around her. The romance part may be a bit slow but I would say that the author did a great job in inserting the romance parts between the story. With the progress of the story, I agree that there are some parts that the male lead would be better off not at the MC's side while sometimes his appearance is perfect. And everytime they meet, you could really say that the delivery of romance is great and not rushed.

I haven't finished the story so far but I could say that I would really rate this story 11/5 stars if there is such a thing. The wit. Relationships. Events. Simply perfect.

Status: Completed

Spoiler

First and foremost, WHY'D YOU MAKE ME CRY FOR THE LAST THOUSAND CHAPTERS!?!?! Despite the author making me cry, I won't change my review of 11/5 stars. The consistency and context of the story was really great, awesome (I can't even find the right word to describe it). I was hoping to see the reincarnated Master Yan and Grandmaster but oh well, at least Rong Ruo came back to life and most of all, Jun Wu Yao was revived!! I mean I really thought I was the Jun Wu Xie from the final chapters so when he died, my tears was like a nonstoppable dam. Thankfully (super mean it), the gods returned him to her after the war. This scenario really made me cry to think that the reunion of Wu Xie and Wu Yao already made me cry when she got him back.

My latest review is kinda messy but I reviewed right after I finished reading the story. There's too much feels you know.

夜北's second novel and the writing definitely improved over it's predecessor "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady".

This story is a continuation to "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady", and settles some of the loss ends for that story.

There are some background details for the MC from the last novel that's used to set up this novel but isn't actually available in this one. Here a brief summary if you care:

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC, Wu Xie, is a doctor in the same organization as Shen Yan Xiao. They are best friends who commonly hangs out possibly due to their loner personalities. As you can tell their occupations by the title of the novels, "Extraordinary godly thief" vs "Extraordinary godly doctor". Wu Xie used to be an veterinarian, but was found by the organization and was made to work as their doctor in return for funding w/e needs she have, of course not like she has much of a choice. As the organization's best thief, Shen Yan Xiao constantly gets injured. And as the organization's best doctor, Wu Xie's responsible for treating most of the agents and thus frequently works with Shen Yan Xiao and gotten to known her.


On a side point, Wu Xie actually has a lot of experience with interacting and working with other people. Not a hermit as some people misunderstands.


When the organization got raided, Shen Yan Xiao sacrificed herself to give an opportunity for Wu Xie to escape, and thus returning Wu Xie favor for treating her all of those times when she was heavily injured during missions. Wu Xie was angry at Shen Yan Xiao for doing so, because as obvious in the first novel Shen Yan Xiao had the opportunities of escaping by herself. This caused her annoying at the smell of blood and over reaction sometimes. Thus begins the two novels.

[collapse]

This part is a bit more of a spoiler if you already read the other novel.
Spoiler

There are more on the MC and the male lead in "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady", especially on the male lead, but those are too much of a spoiler.


If you want to know why the male lead is such a jack ass and why he's so obsessed with the MC, reading "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady" is highly recommended (unfortunately the translation is no where up to that point though).

[collapse]

Common to 夜北's 3 novels, they are all focused on a extremely well developed MC with a lot of character growth over the course of 3000 chapters, best males lead of all the novels I read (with female protagonist), and an epic story with a lot of depth and just the right amount of foreshadowing.

I judge male lead on 3 factors
- Character development in the story
- Doesn't prevent the MC from showing her full potential
- Isn't annoyingly interrupting the story.
Spoiler

The weak part of 夜北's novels is the MC's little buddies. Once introduced they never get any real character development. Sometime part of the group in just sitting there not really saying or doing anything. One person in the group is the clown who's always saying and doing stupid things to lightened up the novel. This one is the only one that really have any important in the story itself, the other don't even have to be there. These buddies get ridiculously unreasonable upgrades but never really have any real use; pretty much just allowing them to hang around.

[collapse]

There are no major plot holes in the novel. The story tend to be very thought out and is the best reason for reading it.

Highly recommended.

There seems to be a trend with reincarnation stories, but even so, this one was interesting. Although it contains the trope of the MC being very skilled from a previous life, I really like how the MC acts, and how she shows vulnerability at some times, such as wondering if that was what having a family was like. The pacing is just right, not to fast or slow, and the mysteries are intriguing. I can't wait to read more.

I can see why some do not favor this novel, but it is good nonetheless.

And while others think the MC it too OP I think not. She has her faults. For example, because of the mc's enclosed childhood, she cannot express herself very well for she has never undergo such feelings or scenarios. Which I find endearing and so does the male lead! Though I wish he'd stay longer...

Caught up in 2 days of binge reading, give me back my youth! ( TДT)~

The MC isn't weak or a pushover. I like reading how strong and powerful she is. I also love the cat/panther because her monologues are sooo cute~ Lord Meh Meh is also def best character lol.

However,

I feel the female MC's wish to protect her family is kinda flimsy >. >


Like, she went from "IDGAF" to "I'll do anything for them" too fast and with too little details or content. So we don't really see how she got close to her family other than some explanation about how her grandpa and uncle dotes on her unconditionally. It's not a bad reason, but the fact that there were no scenes that proves it make it seem sooooo flimsy.


There's also the fact that the solution for the whole plot is to pretty much have the male MC just say

"I'm the Dark Emperor"

Like, I don't mind having her grow stronger and wanting to protect herself and her loved ones but god, the answer is so simple. IMO, I would love the story better if the male MC just admitted to being the

and offering to save her all her troubles but reject him and try to prove that she can do it herself. That would actually show true resolve rather than the pushed to the corner with no choice thing she's doing right now >. >

And did I mention how the author just LOVES to repeat the same scene again and again and again? Like, I get the need to show the same scene with different POVs but when you repeat the same scene for more than 3 times, it gets pretty annoying <. < It was annoying even when I had to binge 700++ chapters. I wonder how those people who read it one chapter per day feels. [/spoiler] Well, in conclusion, if you like murder, OP-ness, nakama power and bullying people who are mentally 10+ years younger than you but pretend that you are younger than them, then this is a novel for you.

Translation is pretty good as well as the novel. Read raws up to 2000+.
Spoiler

Though this novel is very long and somehow repetitive in some parts (due to the plot armor) but it's not boring at all since the plot thickens at each turn of events. The slow romance (build up slowly and not forced) is a major plus point to this novel. And with the occasional appearance of contract spirits (adding fluffiness and humor) its an enjoyable read overall.

I really love this novel. I love it so much I tried to learn Chinese just to read the raws (so far I'm unsuccessful). This novel is amazing but

it has 2 huge problems that gets me frustrated.

1. At first the chapters are super long you can take a quick shower, dress up, eat breakfast, go to school/work, come home, change, eat dinner, take a walk, go to bed and your done reading the same chapter. Yay!

But as the story goes on you will soon notice with just a blink... more>> of an eye BAMB you are done reading 3 chapters. How crazy is that? Of course, the translators update regularly (props to them) but what's the point when the chapters are at most 3 to 6 short paragraphs?

Would recommend to wait until at least 20 chapters are out before binge reading. By the 800th chapter (I think) the word count can be counted with my two hands and feet. Lol no joke.

2. There really isn't much romance. If you count a male lead that is hardly there as a male lead for the main character then I don't know what to say. The supposed "male lead" is drop dead gorgeous and strong but either than that the romance between him and the MC is rather forced. The author tried too hard and made the forced romance develop too quickly. As a result the male lead came off as desperate, clingy and creepy. Kinda like a stalker. In some way his actions are cute and sweet but if you think about it uhh no he is just taking advantage of the mc's innocence.

Now that I got that off my chest. The MC like others have stated is antI social, calm, and ruthless when it comes to her enemies. For me the MC is likable because she's in her own world most of the time and does not act irrational. She can be naive when it comes to the mail lead and her emotions but her cuteness makes up for it.

I would definitely recommend giving this novel a try.

Story wise it gets better but beware of shorter chapters.

This has become one of my favourite chinese light novel so far.

The plots are are very interesting. The character has been OP in terms of medical abilities since the very beginning. HOWEVER, she did not show off her skills nor does she tries to cure every diseases in the world that she come across without any compensation.

So this story has a realistic view that we all can understand unlike some novel where the character kills and save people to the point we don't if they're bad or good... more>> but nice to the point we roll our eyes out.

I also loves the relationship between people. To me, JWX is a 'kuudere' - those who don't know what that means can google it.
So she is cold and very calculative. But once she establish one as a family and those who are loyal, she will never turn her back on them and whatever her grandpa says she follows.

My most fav. Is her relationship with JWY who she saved and very enigmatic. He remind me of Sebastian from Black Butler. The way they interact never made you roll your eyes due to JWX personality and JWY is soo sly! They will make you go kyaa! And your heart goes kyuuunn~~ and sometimes shot you right on the kokoro😍😍

Thanks to Misty Cloud translations, this novel is VERY REGULARLY updated. If there are queues, within one day, there can be +5 updates and sometimes up to 10. So once the queues are finished, there are at least once a day or once a weekend updates.

There are many more reasons but you can find out yourself once you read this ;)
So I very much recommends people to read this novel because it is epic!!🙌🙌 <<less

In a world flooded with Ultra competent Chinese female reincarnates into fantasy china world as a formerly retarded child hated by all, This one is by far one of the best.

What we have here, is an MC who is cold, socially awkward, and ruthless in the pursuit of her meager goals. She doesn't want fame, or to be the best alchemist, mage, fighter, cultivator, blacksmith, belly dancer, magus, witch, whatever. She just wants to live with her family in relative peace.

unlike some other novels in the same genre... more>> (I'm looking at you The Demonic King Chases His Wife: The Rebellious Good-for-Nothing Miss) she isn't really hated, just looked down upon a bit early on. She's not surrounded by tons of people who just irrationally hate her for no reason. And unlike other novels in this genre, she is actually, ultra competent, and doesn't have the mentality of a hormone driven 12 year old.

The MC is socially awkward, she doesn't like talking, she struggles to show her own feelings, and shes content to be her own company. Shes also ruthless, she'll do anything in pursuit of her goals, but she'll only harm others if they show her ill will first, she isn't a psycho.

Nothing really ground breaking here, just replace your usual bad-ass xianxia hero that uses his super powers and has a heaven defying artifact by a female with heaven defying capabilities with medicine and poisons, as well as a second "beast" that's just as broken as she is (not to mention the OP character that dotes on her a bit weirdly).

Because it involves poisons rather than swords, the "combat" situations are trying to pass as well constructed intrigues instead of the usual "being looked down upon by everyone and forced... more>> to fight stronger than himself".

It might sound like I am bashing this novel, but I really am not, I did enjoy reading 350 chapters over the course of a few days (the chapters are fairly short, but that's still a fairly big amount of words to read).

It's just that the novels seems to want you to believe that the main character makes amazing decisions and is incredibly good at seeing through any situation, but the way it is written really feels more like a coat of paint to force the situations, just through other means than usual.

The characters are all a bit one dimensional, and aside from a few side characters, not much growth is seen.

On the translation front, it's mostly good, with the occasional typo or wrong word mixed in, but it's fairly rare and didn't detach me from the reading too often (I am really picky about those). The pace of translation also covers fairly nicely the fact that the chapters are a bit short, the "free" chapters are fairly generous, and the price tag for the extra is also lower than what is used on many other sites.

At the end of the day, while nothing especially great stands out for me, I still enjoyed reading it more than most xianxia novels, and the "plot" seems less rushed and forced.
I'd gladly give it 3. 5, but because it doesn't quite reach what I would give a 4, I'm lowering it to 3, but in my book it still means that it's worth trying out to see if it's what you might want.

The novel is a good read to pass the time... I like the face slapping the MC does once in a while... The MC is op in the filed of medicene and her plot armor in the form of the ML is also super op

Her friends are funny and her soft spot for all fury cute things is sweet <3

So far, this has been very entertaining. I'm giving it 4 stars for now but could go higher depending on how the story develops from here.

Pros:
- The best part of all is the pacing -- I read up to "chapter" 159 all in one day. The author is really great at keeping the story moving along and there weren't any chapters that felt like "filler. "
- The translation quality is also quite good.
- The plot isn't that unique, but the execution is better and more... more>> realistic than a lot of other "cold-hearted heroine reincarnates as an OP young miss" stories.
- The romance is developing very slowly, which I see as a plus. Some people might not like that, but I think it makes the story more believable.
- The many other male side characters (there's only one other female) are all portrayed pretty clearly and don't suffer from the usual 2-D descriptions in stories like this -- they all have their own roles and personalities, and seem more like real people. Even the villains aren't that bad.

Cons:
- She's still an "OP young miss" - aka beautiful, extremely intelligent, super fast cultivation speed, various cheat spirit sidekicks, and godly too-easy medical skills. However, this character is a lot less brazenly arrogant than a lot of similar characters, and is more subdued until she gets really pissed off later in the story, which I like.
- The "chapters" are sometimes very short compared to other Chinese light novels.
- The main male love interest, despite being mysterious, dangerous, loyal, and oh so s*xy, isn't very well developed at this time. He's kind of just a vague hot guy who flirts with her.

TL;DR:
Read this if you're looking for a fun, fast-paced, well-written story with an intelligent female lead. Don't expect lots of romance until much later on.

UPDATE:
I dropped this down from 4 stars to 3 stars because of how the story has been going lately. I was on board with her being a genius doctor -- it's right there in the title. But when she started actually fighting -- suddenly she's a genius at not only doctor-ing, but ALSO fighting, cultivating, throwing needles, pulling bottles of medicine out of thin air, and both of her spirits are STRONGER THAN ALL OTHER SPIRITS IN THE SAME WORLD. Seriously, it's not the usual over-powered level jump (where a low-leveled MC beats a villain 1 or 2 levels stronger than them). She legit goes from Rank 1, to Rank 2, to beating multiple villains who are 3-5 ranks higher than her (and it's said that most people spend decades just to go up one rank).
Also, before she was just cold, intelligent, and confident -- but now she's flat out arrogant/demanding.

I don't know if I just didn't notice because I'm reading the couple-paragraph short chapters one at a time as they're released now. But it's getting kind of ridiculous.
