I love the concept, but the author isn’t able to do it well. It’s a pretty flat story which becomes less entertaining with every chapter.

It’s kind of funny sometimes. But whatever’s going on is always, always not as funny or awesome as it could be, or even as you expect it to be. The romance is also annoying: beautiful women falling for the MC for no reason at all, the MC falling for beautiful women for no reason at all (i.e. simply because they’re beautiful). Sometimes, the author makes the wuxia and martial arts parts of the novel (and other things) interesting and sensible. Other times, he pulls them out of his ass and gives no regard to continuity or believability.

During the... more>> first few chapters, I hoped it was just getting into its groove. Forty chapters later, I've stopped trying to fool myself about it, and can only accept that it's just an okay story. <<less

Very interesting so far!

The background is that MC got tricked(used as a test subject) by his master into learning random (but famous and powerful) martial arts from different sects. Now MC managed to become OP after much physical sufferings. But what would you do when you are the most powerful fighter? Retire of course! Because being strong is not profitable when all sects are broke and in this world you can't do anything without money!

It's writen in first person perspective and the narration is just gold. The translation is... more>> smooth as well, nothing chunky that sours the mood with its long run-on sentences. I can't comment yet about the plot, as the story is only starting. Usually I'd wait a while before leaving a review, but this one caught my attention enough for me to recommend it. I guess you can say the attraction is really in the MC's narration as he makes a comment about everything around him.

[update chapter 11: I stand my ground. Will update with better review after more chapters] <<less

Idea is interesting as it is something new which is hard to come these days. This story is light read that can make you laugh a bit. Story... well story is only starting so i cant say much but for now but it shows promise.  Translations is spotless as far i can tell.

I give it 3 stars for few reasons:

  • Main character is a wimp like biggest wimp ever. cannot stand for himself at all and just does everything his master tells him to do. no self preservation even after his master tricks him and he ends up bedridden for long time.
  • Setting to be a predictable plot. You can kinda know what to expect at this point as there is a  huge number of mentioned issues that leave alot of working room to develop but most of them are kinda obvious.
  • Author keeps making jokes about gays and traps. At the start it was funny after 5th time it was same old stuff.
Of course this novel have a lot of room to maneuver, so with time it might be better.

Almost 50 chapters in and still no H-scenes with the adult tag, was laughing the whole way reading it.

MC is so underestimated despite being so powerful that I pity him.

The fact that he's stingy, perverse  and wants for nothing but a stable life makes him comparable with the MC from Kono Suba.
