The story really does jump all over the place, at intervals when you least expect it. I would say there are not specific "story arcs", since it really seems like the author is god and writes whatever he wants, whenever he wants to.

Don't expect the MC to stay in any one place/planet too long for any reason at all, as he will suddenly pack up and leave for another place due to a sudden event (usually combat/battle related) caused by the author.

Spoiler

Although the MC is a beast and has zero value on human life (he kills for any reason, or just because his intuition tells him it might get dangerous), he hasn't killed any introduced female characters so far. Don't expect any love interests though, since the MC doesn't even know the difference between male and female (and the significance of that difference, despite there being a highly intelligent AI telling him all the time about the beauty of females).

EDIT:

Now that I have progressed more into the novel, I actually have to downgrade my review of this to a 2. The problem I have here is that the scenes jump around too much. Just when you're comfortable with the current location and you're thinking that the MC is starting to lay down roots, he has to escape and go somewhere else. It's annoying because you get to form an attachment to some of the side characters introduced, but then the MC needs to run around again. He's only... more>> in one place for a dozen or so chapters at most. That kinda wreaks havoc in any attempt to get an overall sense of the plot, IMO.

It would have been better if the MCs personality was at least better than that of a savage so that at least you'd really care what happens to him. But he's not and it even becomes a running joke for a while - this was actually fun reading before he got yanked again and reverted back to thinking law of the jungle mode, where you have to be the one to strike first to survive.

ORIGINAL

I normally try and avoid giving out reviews before 100 or so chapters are out, but I really don't see why there are a lot of 1 star reviews for this novel. I wish people would review this novel on its own merits, and not because it's from QI.

The novel itself... it's from the same author as World of Cultivation, Five Way Heaven, Card Disciple, etc. One of my favorite authors. I'm looking forward to seeing how he/she? provides their own twist to the mecha scI fI genre.

As for how the novel is right now... It reads kind of similar to Tempest of the Stellar War in that the MC is given access to an incredible trainer. That coupled with excellent learning skills and good foundational training / survival skills allow him to make a killing at online / virtual mech battle simulations. From the looks of things by the end of ch25 tho, that paradigm is about to end, looking forward to see how his situation changes.

Now, why a 3 star review and not higher? I'm not sure if it's just the translation or the actual book, but there are some weird scene jumps that breaks story immersion. Also, right now, there is nothing entirely unique in the story elements presented. Except for Undefeated God of War tho, Fang Xian hasn't really betrayed my expectations in providing a unique story world. I'll happily upgrade my review once it's progressed to that point. :) <<less

Hehe so I get to be the 1st to put a review eh!

Well then thank you very much. To be honest, I at first wasn't really interested. The synopsis wasn't really eye catching and sounded like one of those novels that are just made for money and attention, but then I snooped around and casually read the author message to the readers and WOAH!! It made my blood boil, what a great 'Welcome to my world. '. So I decided to give it a try.

The beginning is really slow,... more>> it's still giving us a little bit of the Mcs' background while telling us the current status of his life. It's still really slow but then he's suddenly moving, you get interested, you start asking questions, like why is he in that place, what is the source of his talent and who is Mu Shang!!!

In the end, all I can say is that this story has a lot of potential and that my curiosity is piqued. To the translating team I hope you won't give up this novel, unlike many others who gave up on theirs. I'll be cheering for you from behind.

The author leaves many details out of the story and drops information on the reader in baffling times. Example: when the MC fights another mech for the first time the author does not give any detail about his enemy until he actually starts to fight it, such as the name of the mech, and it also feels as if the author thinks the reader should already know the details behind the world he has created. To keep it short this story has been a fun read but it clearly feels... more>> like a novel written by a newbie who doesn't know how to world build or understand that little details in his work can go a long ways in making the story more enjoyable.

As others have mentioned, the beginning is a little slow but the story really begins to pick up from chapter 28 when he gets off the trash planet. So don't give up before then!

As for the story itself, the main character can be classified as a "survivor". Someone whose main focus in life is surviving above all else. If he comes across anyone who might be a threat, then he will attack without warning. He doesn't get distracted by women, and focuses purely on surviving and getting stronger. In other... more>> words he would be a better fit in an apocalypse novel as opposed to this futuristic sci-fI novel where human civilization has spread to the stars.

I'm not a big fan of mecha as I consider the entire concept to be ridiculous. Humanoid battle robots? If you put the same armor and weapons on a tank or drone it would always do better. And why even have humans pilot them? I know mecha anime always make up some bullsh*t reason as to why super advanced mecha must have a human piloting them but... in the futuristic settings that mecha fiction are set in, are we expected to believe that AI hasn't advanced to the point where it would completely supplant humans in every endeavor? That's why I give this 4 stars. Human mecha pilots make no sense in a futuristic setting where AI is smarter than humans.

Also, the idea that a mecha pilot's maneuvers are limited by his physical body makes zero sense to me. First of all it's a literal brain interface, as in your brain is directly connected to, sending commands to and receiving the feedback from the mecha. So why should your physical body be a limitation? How do you even control a giant robot if your physical body limits what you can do? It's not like anyone is born with cannons on their back.

All in all, it's a novel with a fairly interesting setting and a MC that isn't terrible. It's worth a read. <<less
