Interesting story! It has a few weak points here and there, but it's still better than some other popular novels.

When it comes down to the knight vs mage system, i've seen that many authors usually mess that thing up. The same thing happen in Coiling Dragon, where the knight or mage professions are important just at the begining. Later it does not matter which one is it or if a character is both a mage and a knight in the same time. This thing kinda messes the story a... more>> big time, why can't the characters keep their professions till the end? Why can't a mage and a knight be eaqual in terms of power and abilities? etc. <<less

This was pretty good at first..but the Novel really is all over the place! Some of the Characters are good! But they hardly get an appearance. Ill have you know this MC is very weak. Its been over 173 chapters and he still hasn't learned anything!

The Author wont make his dam Mind! Is he a Magician? Nope. Is he a Warrior? No skip that. There's to many cheat abilities! The Author is absurd! What the hell do you want him to be then?! The ideas are good but... more>> the script keeps changing too much. Everything is disorganize. No wonder this Novel is extremely short! No wonder its been dropped by Translators several times! It took one year for a 100 dam chapters! I just want to get this Novel over with man.

I almost want to rate this 2 stars. But there's 4 characters in the story that make it worth reading. Sad thing is he doesn't even use the characters properly!

Spoiler

There's a girl name Vivian. She's a freaking amazing character. A million dollar idea! No doubt. She's an adorable little witch girl whose OP. But..the Author is really cruel not utilizing this character properly! She only has little scenes and we see her through more Tragedy then good. The other one was Knight Girl. She showed amazing potential and growth! But after a few chapters she just becomes the "Beauty Girl who attracts everyone" Why stop these characters?! Instead they're only used material for his Harem..to make Mc look good. Ah there's also Medusa and Ghost girl. Deep backstories but no utilizing their characters!

[collapse]

I really want to cry now. So much disappointments. I can only imagine if this was Polished and rewritten without a Harem or stupid Main Character. Is he good? bad? I don't know! Author keeps changing his personality. He either acts like an genius manipulator or a super dumb guy...lol

Read at your own risk. It gives a lot of headaches but those 4 characters are interesting. <<less

The novel had an interesting start which was realistic and made sense. If you were an ordinary person and was suddenly transported to another world leaving behind your friends and family, how would you react? The mc in this case rejected the world and allowed his family to think of him as a retard and an idiot when in actual fact he’s really smart. The mc has an interesting personality and uses his young age as a way to get out of certain situations and blend in. He’s smart... more>> but when it comes to politics he isn’t the best in that regard.

The plot may slow down a bit when he’s settled in but it always manages to pick up again. From what I’ve read my favourite arc is the frozen forest by far.

As you’ve already guessed from other reviews this does have some parody elements when it comes to the names of characters

Spoiler

gandalf, jack Sparrow, George Bush, David Beckham, Harry Potter etc

My Favorite kind of story!

I have high respect for MC who isn't a One-man Army like most Xianxia crap. The MC knows how to use people, Items and opportunities to make his situation better. He may be weak for a very long time but at least he doesn't get strong in 1 chapter and trample everything like a toddler on tantrums. The power up is slow but for each of them it is very amusing to read.

No other words, just read if you're into slow and steady strengthening with amusing... more>> story. <<less

This novel is so good, it does have a smart MC that is reincarnated into a medieval world with magic, using his past life expirience to make money and develop new tec!

People that hate it for the MC using names from his past live, are the crazy ones, if you get send to a medieval world with magic, would you not use names like that for fun??

Also the description at the top is so wrong and false, i don´t know who typed it but nothing is true, he diden´t even... more>> make a deal with the "devil", i hope someone could change that "Description" <<less

Pros:

-Soild character develop.
-For the most part no deus ex.
-MC is actually a reincarnated person and not just an excuse for a bad author to use modern earth terms and language or to make a character illogically op.
-MC incorporates past knowledge without become a techonlogy or mary sue
-No creepiness from MC
-There are actual characters smarter and more resourceful then the MC even though the MC is portrayed as intelligent
-MC understands and has limits and has people to fill them, i.e he's not an edison... more>> and a telsa(like so many MC are made out to be) but rather recruits telsaes as an edison(without being a major douche) if you understand that reference
minor pro spoilers
Spoiler

-Nice Kingdom building no one man army crap
-MC becomes full fledged mage so no worries on that
-King Making

[collapse]
Cons
-Some silly names
-some translation is pretty poor but the quality picks up

Really its one of the better novels I've read on here if you ignore the silly names. Honestly almost all the negative reviews are because of silly names ruining immersion(i.e his mentor is named gandalf) if you can't handle that then don't read I guess. I got over pretty quick but who knows. <<less

The best factor about this novel is

It has the best reincarnated MC ever. At least the MC didn't forget his past life like the most reincarnated MC. Whats the point of being reincarnated if you forget your whole past life or do not use it for your own benefit. At least the author made an amazing MC

The plot was interesting at the beginning, but alas, it was annoying later on, especially when the MC ... more>>

I've finished the series and I got to say it's worth my time. But I have 3 points that I dislike.

WARNING: Real Spoilers that will spoil many things, so READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

... more>>
Spoiler

1. Romance: Along the story a rich, single merchant lady will appeared as a potential love interest. This 30 years old lady looks young as she is a half-breed of an elf and human. Thus, many people wanted to marry her but she rejected them all. Throughout the story, the lady showed interest in the protagonist. She confessed to the protagonist earnestly, dared to make a move on the protagonist, and even wanted to eat a pill that will shorten her life span in exchange for a 100% chance of the protagonist to fall in love with her. Yet, what did the protagonist do? He rejected her, over and over again. He has chosen the clumsy dragon female, and her sister instead. I mean, if you're already going for the harem route must as will take in one more right? The lady confessed to you under the moonlight and with the correct atmosphere, didn't he skipped a beat? Wtf man? You cock block is it?

2. Power: During the story he will have a chance to get the previous traveler's power. What did he do? HE REJECTED IT!!! Wtf man? You dumb or what? There's a super op power for you and you rejected it? Served you right for unable to use magic after that.

3. Ending: Wow, I'm very disappointed with this. He came out from a time-distorted portal where he was in it for a few hours while 10 years had past in the real world. He found out that the rich lady's sister that I had mentioned above was forced to get married to the mad king and he killed the mad king. And that's all. The chapter was done like that. It felt rushed... After spending hours upon hours to read 1000+ chapters, with the ending ended like that... I'm disappointed.

Extra: I'm fucking disappointed when he killed the miko, in a terrible way as well. Fuck him. But he has a reason behind it but still, I don't like it.

[collapse]

Oh well, that conclude my rant on this novel. It's so-so but I'd recommend it since the plot is quite thick. Fking plot twist, my brain hurts. <<less

Don't. Just don't.

It started off quite well. The premise was good, the writing was good, the translation was good. Everything was going well until about chapter 150 or so. Then things went into the toilet.

The MC became boring. The supporting cast turned one dimensional. The story moved at a snails pace and became infinitely predictable.

Well...it's weird. It started great, even though I hate novels where the main purpose of the characters is to go back, it's very Japanese, but then the author simply gets out of hand. After meeting with the devil, he gets really crazy specially with the pirate shit. It is not funny to do border plagiarism with well known works. It even destroys the immersion experience. The characters also become very
stoic and boring later on the novel. It is a terrible...just terrible novel in my opinion. If you are... more>> into xianxia and dislike Japanese LN you probably won't like this. If you do like the generic Japanese novels you MIGHT like this, but mabye not. Honestly I found minecraft less of a waste of time than this. <<less

Started off pretty well, but then it annoying. I did not mind the slow pace, but the MC has still remained weak, weak enough that I can defeat him. Somehow, he faces stronger opponents and humiliate the MC, it was not funny anymore after the second time. The pop references later in the story also started to get annoying.

Read this a while ago so lemme think...I say the same as in other reviews, great start of a serious novel, then puff some silly girl pops out and ruins everything with bad comedy - around chap 23 when Bagleson stopped translating, maybe he thought this novel went south as well

This novel started absolutely amazing. The MC was interesting and the development was intriguing. But then we see the atheist inside our author that tries so hard to explain how stupid is anyone who believes in god, and the ones to deny his existence are the wise. Dude, its your novel, I get it, but instead of simply insulting your readers, you could have done way better. Next, the naming sense. We have .. lets see, ... more>>

At first it was really enjoyable and had lots of potential but when you just continue reading it. It sorts of lose itself, at first it seems very dark and sinister then became a bit lighter in term of the mood. It keep changing throughout the novel which is fine however the author keep bringing in names such as harry potter, George Bush, Jack Sparrow, etc. It was funny at first but when you continue on, its just not that funny anymore.

His ability is super cheaty, he was Aragon, the king of the nation, he attained "God's" body- super OP body that makes him indestructible/more stronger than the "gods" in exchange for sacrificing his magic.

His harem is quite weird:
Vivian, Vivian's sister, Medusa, His disciple the princess

Most of them know magic.

As of Ch.75.

A nice premise, where an ordinary Earthling was reborn into a noble family. Deemed to be a fool due to his silence since birth, the MC was left to his own devices, eventually being exiled to a far off province to avoid spreading his ‘contagion’ to his newly born younger brother. However, several twists of fate meant the MC would find himself being acquainted with powerful magicians and warriors, sending him further and further away…

The early chapters were good, very nice world and atmospheric building, even though the... more>> MC is a little unlikable early on.

Spoiler

His predicament was brought about by his stubborn reticence, causing others to thought of him as a mute retard. We are never really told the reasons for his jaded personality, readers might almost think of him as the most pessimistic crossing-over MC ever for not taking advantage of his rebirth.

[collapse]
Other reviewers have noted their dislike about the name-dropping from pop culture but actually it is interesting to see a MC to use such names as an inside joke which would obviously be foreign in his new world, yet it is something us readers can relate here. However, it is another thing entirely to have native characters actually having names from our world, eg Solskjaer, David Beckham and later, Saddam Hussein (wtf).

Having the MC giving Earth-names is acceptable, the denizens having such names ‘naturally’ is off-putting. It is a minor distinction but I can’t help but feel distracted whenever the name ‘Saddam Hussein’ pops up.

The story veers off to strange paths, I was enjoying the ‘being a minor noble heir’ part when suddenly he was whisked far away, not once but twice. The focus from wealth building suddenly shifted to magic and later on, martial skills made me question the direction of the story. There are many unexplored mysteries and fortuitous connections within the small cast that are continuously being pushed into the back burner, and some characters were built up only to be written away because they don’t fit the current arc.

The translation quality is wild, the early chapters were very good but later on some names/spellings were changed, and again from one translator to another. Someone who reads slowly can easily get confused, someone who binge-read like I am would be irritated.

Decent, have to read more to recommend it. Requires time-investment and patience. <<less

The novel starts off as any other novels, and it feels like your typical slice-of-life. Once you get to the later arc, it gets serious conspiracy and political, becoming a good read. It's around chapters mid 80s when you start learning about the conspiracy.

This novel is a very good one and fun to read. If you are thinking of giving it a try or not , ignore the bad reviews which people left after reading only the first few chapters and go for it !

The novel picks up and its a very fun one with a lot of elements of magic , beasts and gods, with 2 secret "continents"/zones separating them , one side of humans and another side of beast which includes: elfs,orcs/goblins and Dragons ! That’s right dragons !

Despite of the promising beginning, the story has its up and down. While at the beginning the famous names from the real world may make you laugh or surprised, but the author keeps pulling the stunt and it gets boring.

As i said, the story has its own ups and downs, some arcs may be seems boring, some chapters contain many unnecessary rambling, but when it gets back up again, things really became interesting. 3 stars is fair for this novel.

Believe me or not but this novel’s MC makes me think a lot about Rudeus of Mushoku Tensei.

Truthfully, I had dropped the novel in my stand-by list for a long time because I had begun to dislike the slow pace in the arc where Duwei was building his little empire after being exiled by his father. This arc was beginning to smell like an annoying slice of life story. Hopefully, it was only a single arc and when reading it again, it became suddenly less annoying.

This novel is... more>> really well constructed on many points :

– The MC has a well defined personnality. He is not empty and can really be described as crafty, ingenious, smart, cold, and a little evil because he has really a peculiar impression on this world. He is not white at all.

– There exists characters with OP-ness but it’s not our MC. Weirdly, perhaps because he is so out of the world, he can be called OP in some way but this OP-ness isn’t easy to deploy and our MC has a lot of work to do on himself. That makes things more realistic and logic.

– The pace of the story is steady and really adventurous. This two components makes the novel more balanced. And this balance makes the novel more interesting.

I can say that this novel is a very good work. But it’s normal that it won’t please everybody because this novel, nor slow nor fast, has a really progressive pace and he takes time to deploy its bases. In some way, it’s far more mature. As for me, I have a good impression on this novel, even if it’s not my favorite one. <<less

It is one of the most interesting novels that I have read, and believe me there were many. This story has captured all my attention from the very beginning, and the more I read, the more I became more and more interesting, and I just could not stop. Of course, in the beginning there was one thing that I was very irritated, is that the main character denies the fact that he belongs to this new world. And so it was not quite interested in anything, even in mothers who... more>> gave his life and gave him love. But then everything changes, it starts to quietly find their place in this world that really pleased me.

I was struck by a few things that you will not find anywhere else. For example in this whole new world, he led us to a new all the familiar game, but that is not in this world, and this is football. The balloon will make a splash in the world where people will be able to easily and securely to quickly get anywhere and see the world from a bird's flight. Also in the pop up and the word makdonals, appear Jack Sparrow, Black Pearl, Dzhorsh Bush, Harry Potter, and he will have many more ideas. And what is most interesting is that the protagonist is not yet strong, but he always gives in such a difficult situation that he has to exert all his strength, his intelligence and ingenuity to 120% in order to survive or to cope with a particular problem. He learns SUCH secret that the mere knowledge of them is a great danger.

By reading this novel necessarily, since you will plunge into a new world and just excellent will spend the time for his reading. <<less
