Description

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

The Soaring Dragon Continent is a world of summons, you can only become strong if you become a summoner! Yue Yang, an average high school boy, was suddenly transported into this world. When he woke up, he was greeted with a lot of worried faces and found out that he had assumed another person’s identity. Turns out he’s the good-for-nothing third son of the Yue Family, who had just recently drowned himself because of a failed engagement. Unlike the third son of the Yue Family who was useless in summoning, Yue Yang succeeded in making a contract with a summoning grimoire on his first try, even when the other guy failed for the past fifteen years.Others would have a headache making contracts with beasts afterwards, but countless beasts tried to gain favour with Yue Yang instead, acting like a good kid before him.

Yue Yang the brat, however, didn’t feel grateful at all: “Scram, Mythical Beasts! Do you think you are cool like that? Go away from me now, I like only beautiful summons!”

Even when royal families approached him for his talents, the shameless brat replied, “I’m not interested in government stuff, I’m only interested in beauties!”

My rating for this series was 5/5 until recently. I have been a fan of Long Live Summons since the first chapter was translated, however while the story was funny and amusing at the beginning it has quickly grown stale. Past chapter 100 the author probably ran out of ideas, since then the story has been stagnant and the female cast have all been consolidating into one single personality.

Literally all of the female harem members have the same personality and it becomes very apparent the more the mc... more>> interacts with them. The random encounters have become uninteresting as well as the reader already knows what is going to happen with whatever harem member is travelling with the mc gets flirted with by mc, then gets attacked by mob, then both people fight -> mc saves girl -> mc beats ass of person when the girl gets knocked unconscious. The plot has been non existent. With my description describing the state of the story since chapter 100

Every side character is boring, and every love interest has the personality of soggy bread. Yet the story spends a massive amount of time on them. <<less

Review as of Ch.189.

It can swing to extremes between bloody revenge and lewd humor. The MC is ruthless, and yet a pervert. The title seems to focus on summons, and yet the MC himself has nearly unrivaled strength in combat. All in all, you have a contradictory setting.

I’ll admit, the very first paragraph which had a quote from Stephen Chow’s movie “Pandora’s Box” (a parody of Journey to the West) immediately hooked me.

But how does it read? The bloody scenes are well written, and you can understand the MC’s decision... more>> making even if you don’t agree the extent he is taking matters. The lewd scenes are handled with humor, never going too far but doing the things many men wish they could do with impunity: touching and feeling and not caring about the consequences, only to laugh and joke in a roguish manner to infuriate and attract the victim.

It is the humor that sustains the series, much more than Heavenly Jewel Change which is similar in style and substance. This is not something you recommend to those who dislike lewd humor.

At the point of this review the story seems to have lost its way somewhat, a jumbled mess of plots: an academy setting, tests, battles, kidnapping of his family, flying from one fight to another with barely a rest.

Some characters and mysteries have not been referred to in a long while (long time readers: hands up if you remember the Heavenly Sword Goddess).

But at all times the MC remain true to his perverted self.

There are many mysteries being thrown about, too much in fact, and there isn’t a main end-goal in sight for the MC.

But I will continue to read to find out. <<less

It started out with a pretty good beginning. The premise of it was awesome; summoning grimoires and being able to capture cool monsters. But then…that nasty pervert personality is just too much. I can stand some perversion from male leads, but this character is just horrible because he has such a bad personality. I crown him, “The Worst and Dumbest Pervert Ever”.

Dude, at least hide ur intentions and be smart about it. But no, he just had to think with his dick all the time. Oh, this female is... more>> pretty>save her and touch her. Oh, pretty big sister here with huge boobs>touch and grope her. Wows, what a great guy, please just cut his dick off and make him a eunuch. Plus, the females are crazy, they’re all his little ho’s; all have the same personalities and they're tsunderes. Author, this is a big no no, don’t make all the girls so similar; don’t add so many girls to the point that you can’t even make up a personality for them, please, just kill them off! No more dumb females please! And the way the females think he’s handsome…I can see from the cover that he’s just normal; no description of his features or maybe there was but I can not remember it.

And whoever summoned him should have done some fucking research on his personality. Why the heck would you summon a nasty, dumbass, perverted, *bleerghhh* barf-worthy idiotic, gross...not enough words to describe this friggin jacked up idiotic donkey licking asshole! Just..why, Why, WHY??!!! Why couldn't you have summoned some worthy leading male character?! I'm not asking for a Prince on a white horse! I just want to read about a main character that doesn't have to be a pervert-with-a-harem, just someone with morals and be able to make his own judgement.

There are just so many questions left unanswered by the author. Too much of his pervertedness and his lies..Blegh, who can't see through his lies?! Even a blind monkey can tell that he is a dunderhead who is a perverted liar!

I’m not reading this anymore until it’s done. The plot is just going downhill and it’s getting boring. I’m going straight to the raws to see if he gets to travel back to his own world or not. (Still can’t get over how badly written this main male character is; nasty pervert! Die!) <<less

It starts out sort of okay but it clearly becomes evident that this series is disappointingly mediocre.

The world/cultivation system - The author has no idea what he wants the setting of this novel to be. He constantly shifts back and forth between different systems indecisively.

In the end you get this kung-fu summoner a-la coiling dragon bastardization and the way everything is bound together feels sloppy and not very well thought out. So in other words, it tries to be a jack of all trades and ends up failing... more>> to do so. What's hilarious is that summons is actually inferior to other combat systems, like the innate system, which is funny given the title of the novel. Overall it feels like something an amateur thought up when he was drunk, just throwing every drunken idea he could think of and throwing it all together to create some kind of frankenstein-like monster.

The characters - I actually enjoyed the MC's antics, he is actually quite a funny guy (charming even). However, this becomes less and less relevant because the story becomes oversaturated with abundant pointless side characters and beautiful love interests who mostly only serve to dilute the plot and stretch things out. To make things worse, this obviously takes time away from our relatively interesting MC and what we get in return is countless arcs of babysitting/level raising. It almost feels like poke'mon; the MC has to get all the pointless side characters and takes it upon himself to raise them all up when there's really not much point since they'll never be as OP as the MC anyways, or even come close. It becomes tedious and convoluted and at some point I would say that half of the novel invests itself in exploring these (most of which are) boring extras.

The plot - It has some interesting stories that could be explored, but the narrative constantly gets side tracked (see above paragraph) and instead we get what feels like filler instead. <<less

Started reading this novel seeing it had 4 stars. Wish I hadn't. Plot had potential. But the story turned out to be below average. Often times plot is confusing. MC says he wont reveal his OP summons to others but half the time he use them when people are around and it seems they just seem to ignore the existence of these Legendary summons. I think the author is too lazy or he doesn't care about the holes in story. The MC's perverted personality is a plus for me... more>> but the conversations between him and his harem are out of place and context at many places. The flow of story is really bad.

The cultivation levels in this story are poorly explained. MC gets many level ups and enlightenment but there is no mention of their existence anywhere else.
Overall a poor effort from the author. The translations were good. <<less

That's story is such a waste.

I really like the magic system, the world and the power the MC gets in the beginning, I'd give it a 5/5.

But unfortunately, the MC is such a jerk that at each chapter, I'm tempted to stop reading it.

... more>> He treats everyone like shit, lie pathogenicly, and kill without a second thought making his monster eat people alive.

He's arrogant like hell and sexually harass every girl with boobs big enough for his standards and he even keep a powerful monster by his side just to hit it when he gets moody.

And that's only up to chapter 50.

I'd give 0/5 for the MC so I rated 2 stars as a middle ground.

I also fear that MC would be too much OP for a good story line but that, only time would tell us. <<less

It was fun at the beginning but like every other Chinese novel i have read, the MC is op af. It becomes boring after a while,as you see him having op skills,growing too much faster than others and even defeating those who have higher levels.
There is no introductions to his skills,you just know about them when he first uses them.

Ah, and we shouldn't forget the "for others it would be impossible, but for our hero it was easy" thing.

Embrace yourself on the road of chinese memes, harem and shrewd MC to become a god.
- Thats mostly explains plot overall.

The novel has a whooping in numbers harem. Pokemon-style summons system. Great conspiracy. Crispy ero-scenes. Humor and memes (brace yourselves - its chinese memes). Background - lots of it. Levels-like dimensional world. Adventuring. A bit of struggling. A bit of manage-busin. Author satirizing himself, novel and other pieces out there.
One of the most satisfying harems you'll ever read with damsels so strong, they'll punch you into oblivion. Gets from jokes to seriousness later on, and gets deep and dramatic in places around nearing 1k chapters. Breathtaking development on the road of oppness.

"Catch'em all" (beauthifull women and summons alike). Worth every chapter you'll read. Hardcore vanilla. Why are you still reading this, go get your fix already!

Actually the biggest issue i have with the MC is his lies, he is just lying because he wants too, i mean i do understand he want to hide the fact that he is not ranker, but actualy other times, he just tell lies cause he wants too, and when he is caught up, he throw another lie, which doesnt make sense, its just irritating, cause he could simply choose to not answer.

My other biggest issue is the fact that he is a pervert, kinda funny at the beginning, but... more>> at some point you get fed up with it, i mean touching girls while they are unconscious, really...., or checking girls while you are in a very difficult situation, thats not funny at all, its just irritating, and i find it quite immature.

As for the characters introduction, well i think we all agree that we keep getting newer characters each arcs, and we still dont know shit about the first ones.

As for the begining of the story, again, i think we all agree to the fact that we dont know what happned, to me, it seemed like the author wanted to teleport the guy in another world and give a huuge boost of power, so take a random guy, whome we dont know anyting about, who has a magic sword or whatever, and make him kick the MC, reallyyy..., we still dont understand how did that happen.

I mean he could have easily introduced the story, by saying that the character got magically teleported to this new world and got the sword goddess, i will accept it, its better than what happned, we still dont undersand who was the old guy, who is the MC to the old guy... <<less

The start of the story was really good and originally i felt the series was gonna be something like Doulou dalu but with the MC using the summons. But that quickly proved to be wrong. The summons became more and more useless as the story went on. What i mean by this is that the MC became so OP that the summons were mostly not needed. I'd have rather preferred the story have been a typical Xianxia from the beginning honestly but with the title of the novel being "Long... more>> live summons" i was hoping it would more summon based.

I wont talk about character development since i never hoped for it with this being a Chinese Xianxia novel. But another problem for me with this is the way with which the author keeps pulling power ups out of his ass. Whenever the MC is in trouble the author suddenly tells us that the MCs had managed to learn some OP skill in the past some time which he will use to solve the situation. Theres basically no previous mention of it in the story before. Its like the author has no direction to how he develops the story. And this happens time and time again. I'm totally disappointed by this story especially with how good its start was. That being said the translations for this story are the only part which stay at that level. <<less

+ 1399 chapters are non-linear, non-repetitive which is amazing considering that most other novels can only achieve this if they stop at around 600 chapters or less. Wide variety of enemies from small fries to bigshots, dumb, smart, angry, sad, funny, frenemies. Nice unexpected twists at some parts, both favorable or otherwise to the MC. Good pacing, something happens in each chapter and story moves on without being overly draggy.

+ Smart MC who is not overly OP , doesn’t go guns blazing unless he is sure he can win (or at least highly certain) or is unexpectedly dropped into a shitty situation, bides his time mostly. Most enemies actually have a coherent thought process matching their age/personality, only the initial enemies who are young are arrogant and dumb unlike in other novels where all enemies lack a developed brain. MC doesn’t blindly kill anything that goes against him, nor is he so soft that he lets everybody off like a retard. Powerlevels are reasonable, MC only goes through 1 phase of being an ant once entering a new environment, and even then there’s a reason for that as well. Also, everyone is aware of all powerlevels and the next level is not something pulled out of nowhere.

+ Comedy. One of the few novels where comedy weaves seamlessly into the storytelling throughout 1000 chapters++. High tension parts injected with some humor. Enjoyed some modern day references as well. MC’s shameless perviness is baked in humour.

+ Good storytelling. I appreciated a lot of the smaller tales within the world, and some characters get great backstories. Other than the pervy antics of the MC, ethics and morality is embedded into the story without being too preachy. Side characters are not forgotten. Other than some loose ends, most characters and objects are accounted for at the end.

+ Great Harem. Author largely divides harem members into 2 factions. One type gets more “screen time” and more focused interactions but less/no sex scenes, and the second type gets less interactions but more sex scenes. Much better sex scenes than other novels (highly descriptive, wide categories). Seems like the forte of the author.

– Lack of character development other than for some key people. Yes, a lot of the characters are memorable and well-written, but I don’t think most of them changed personality-wise from when they were introduced till the end. Even MC and harem do not change character-wise till the end. Only the small group MC trains show development. Then again all 1399 chapters took place in a time span of <10 years and you have characters who are hundreds or thousands of years old. Also, characters retaining their personalities whichever side of the fence they stand in/move to shows well-roundedness I guess.

Maybe it isn't a book that tries to find the myseteries of the universe, but for a fun read that lets you just enjoy it. I can't find alot that equals this books.

This story is a sort of rollercoaster ride of ups and downs.

It's actually quite a funny story at times, there's plenty of humor ... Especially the first 100 chapters or so (can't remember precisely, but basically before he got all gung-ho with so many girls at once) were quite fun.

Think the story kind of got downhill as of late (pretty much when he got into the school it got worse) with the weird cultivation/innate power/hero ranking things. Sure it's fun to read the main characters Antics ... and the world... more>> the story exists in is somewhat interesting too.

But sometimes it's very confusing to read what exactly is going on, because the story shifts from one part to the other in absolutely no time. And to me this is a major drawback, it takes away a lot of the momentum the story has and leaves you wondering with "what the hell did I just read"/"what just happened" ... and not in a good way.And the author has the tendency to do this just a bit too often.

It feels like he wants to tell you more and more about the world he created, and then describes something and explains it ... and then leaves that part hanging with absolutely no follow-up whatsoever later on in the story. This actually happens a few times. If any of this stuff actually gets used later on (which I doubt), I'm sure I would've forgotten about it by then, since it just doesn't leave any lasting impact.

Pro:
- Funny, plenty of humor. MC can be amusing.
- Interesting world
Con:
- Too many story shifts/sudden changes, which makes no sense. / makes it confusing to read.
- Cultivation system is all over the place. (no offense to those who actually like this) Some parts I do like, but some I don't.

I would've given it a 4, or maybe even a 5... if it wasn't for the confusing writing at times, which takes away the reading pleasure.
I hope I could purvey what I meant. <<less

LLS is a LN with superb mix of the genre present in it. You have amazing action, comedy, adventure, fantasy but the best fact is how well these genre blend in on the LN. The MC is likable and his interaction with other characters is funny especially ladies because he is a pervert but it is well presented.

Give it a try. Well most of you won't regret that

The start was pretty good like most of the novels, but the plots kept on repeating. MC stays OP all the time and gets one girl after another, and those girls don't really mind being in MC's harem. Even his sister and cousin develops weird feelings, and with how it is going, I doubt they will be willing to leave him and vice-versa.

MC keeps on getting OP powers, which is good and all, but when it keeps on happening so often as in this novel, it seems really overdone. The... more>> story of novel revolves just around battles, getting treasures and increasing his harem. Outside of battles, there really isn't any story to it (IMO).

Lastly, don't decide based on just my review, it is better for you to read the novel and decide yourself. The translation updates are regular and it has over 300 chaps released, so maybe you will enjoy it. <<less

Start like the sacred bamboo, before this bamboo turn in to marihuanna smoking tube! Very thick plot army. Main role of the sex dolls is - protecting the childish MC in war, waiting for his harassment in peace time, while plot develop.

Fighting scene is better that so-so level. Dialogue is very boring, almost stealing from generic stories which floating in the other novel.

Drop it without any regret.

If you liked novels such as:

You will probably like this.

... more>> MC is similar in many ways, protects and cares for his family and friends and if you mess with them he will utterly destroy you, and has a growing Harem of the most beautiful woman in his world. Also this MC is extremely OP(although he lies and pretends to be weak for various reasons) Has OP chick living in his inner world.

The fighting summoning system is good and a nice change from the usual.

I really need to push this novel up somehow. well, let's try it.

Some people say mc get his power from nowhere.

NO! YOU ARE WRONG!

... more>> It will tell a little of MC story since his birth a long the way of the story which I believe many people will miss this. I been reread on lnmtl site 3-4times and I believe I still missing something or a lot of thing.

The first time I read LLS. I only find the "monster will turn human if they evolve and gain,knowledge" as my most interest focus and I skip most of the fight. But damn, how could I be so wrong.

All female that mc met or you guy may call potential harem members, they will grow up with the mc(which some exception like 4th mother...).

The author do very good on something to do with Polygamy. The females knew that they won't be only one the mc choose. They know mc personality is like the wolf. They can accept others. Believe me this is the HAREM that I love the most.

I think the females have their own unique personality and power which both very compatible with each other.

Spoiler

Xue Wu Xia - she's master of ice and lightning. She is cold, calm, straight forward and fast at acting. She is very cunning too. MC need her helps a lot. Even she is virgin till the end of the story, she will always be my best girl.

Qian Qian - Fiery temper, easy to get angry. Got teased a lot by mc and her female friends. That biting game with mc scene is absolute hillarious.

Yi nan - She cute and very open minded. Her power has something to do with mental and soul. Well, her clan have to do with mc too... I believe MC's mother come from Yi nan's aunt's clan(I may be wrong but mc's mother is absolute MYSTERIOUS). She will have honeymoon scene in the middle realm with mc.

Wu Hen - very weak but hardworking girl. She the first, yeah yeah, I know what you mean. She is very devoted wife, always take care of her husband. Well her personality change after her first time which I believe its a very good development.Her defense is very high(in a lot of meanings) untill someone broke it :D

Luo hua - Easy to get jealous and Easy to get funny. Her attack revolve around condensing light and shoot it out like laser. She love flower. She also love to riding on mc :D. I think the story did not mentioned her inherent skill. I think Her skill have to do with gender....

I want to write more or more like I wrote a lot but erase them, cause too much is poisoned.

[collapse]

Sometime, something just happen which suddenly change the flow of story and some people got annoy by it. I believe the world do not go around only mc. There's a war going on here people and mc is just sometime happen to run in some people business.

After finished reading my conclusion.

Spoiler

10,000 YEARS PLAN!

FATE AND DESTINY IS AT HAND!

AS of chapter 242 3/5. But must keep in mind this story is still in the development phase as is always the case of this genre. The first 97 chapters were basically a snooze fest, but after it starts to get much much better.

Once the Harem starts to develop, things lighten up, get interesting. The combat system is a mess. there are different ranks and each rank have different ratings. bronze, silver, gold, platinum and more beyond that. each has 10 ratings, you would think a gold 2 can kick... more>> a bronze 8 butt, but this is not the case.......do not ask why, just accept it and the headache will go away.

Humor is ok, at times funny other times lost in translation. The mc is perverted, and does at times take liberties with his girls, such as fondle or groping.

The thing that confused me the most is the MC is supposed to be a NEET, but he is very street smart, has a quick tongue and can argue/lie with the best, he is beyond bold and arrogant. Also one bad aspect is he sees everyone as an NPC, so killing male or female does not matter to him, yet his "new" family and his friends he protects with his life at any cost. To me a contradiction in terms of his view of ppl. I guess as the story progresses, his view slowly changes as he adapts to the new world and before he notices it, he is a part of it, but everyone once in a while he says something to the affect of "they are only NPC's".

The other confusing thing is, his entire harem all grew up together......wtf? They basically lived like family together. However how he meets each and wins their affection is totally by chance (thus far as we know). Many mysteries are still being thrown at us at this stage of the story with almost no answers given....so one must be patient for a while yet. <<less
