Traps are everywhere lol

Nah, not really.

Okay, to business now. This story's really funny. The characters have good reactions and interactions. Gotta love them. Side characters are adorable.

Might get slightly confusing (on the small details), but overall it's not hard to understand the main points.

MC' like Saitama from OPM. Not too many people know and he usually doesn't use super fancy high class moves. I love it when MC's hide their abilities. Those reveals are always the best. MC's not the honest upright type, but it adds to... more>> the funniness and story.

Main girl is kinda confusing, but everyone's thinking it's the martial aunt. Not too much romantic development yet.

The story feels a bit slice-of-life-ish. There's action and good action, but it's mostly focusing on the main story of retirement with some cleaning.

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... more>> is 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.

This is pretty enjoyable for a quick read as (for me) the chapters range from normal to short.

The MC is pretty laid back and kinda reminds me of GintokI from Gintama. Sometimes those who smile the brightest usually has a tragic past.

Although the story is kinda simple/bland the interactions between each characters is interesting enough to offset it. The story pretty much gives you a tiny peek of background story of the characters from time to time which makes you want to read more as what the author... more>> usually give is not enough.

If I compare this to an anime the entire volume 1 would be enough for 1-2 episodes so it is pretty much a long prologue. So you should finish reading volume 1 first before making a judgement whether you like it or not rather than giving an early low rating.

Spoiler

around chapter 51

best part for me that made me want to read more

"Ming Feizhen wanted to retire.


But he didn't want to just retire.


He wanted everything that was caused by him, all the chaos caused by him and the people in a mess to come to an end. Lan Jun Zhu Kong created many issues during its existence, and has left behind many troublesome issues after it vanished. It may take him the remainder of his lifetime to resolve all the matters, but he has to do it.


This is Ming Feizhen's retired life. "


Though I know its probably too far in the future but still makes me want to read more.

So far the story is about our MC trying to retire/escape the martial life. We aren't very clear on his strength but so far he's just as described in the title.

For me, the best way to describe the MC is a cunning old fox which is a bit perverted and doesn't want to shoulder any more responsibilities. He likes money too...

He is underestimated and doesn't want his leisure life to be interrupted so he can act very humble for the sake of his tranquility and cleverly solve situations... more>> instead of just slaying everyone like he could do.

For the romance well, he acts perverted and all but it's hard to really know what is in his head and his relationships aren't totally clear either so for me it isn't totally cliché.

The comic undertone is very likable and I don't mind the pace of the story, instead, it would be boring if the MC just revolve everything instantly and flawlessly (which would probably impact his retired life).

I recommend the story to refresh your mind when you are exposed to ultra prideful MC h24, the MC isn't a mindless slaughterer but this doesn't mean that he can't act tough though. <<less

Lighthearted and funny, you don't need to take a lot of it seriously but it still has enough plot to hook you in and some foreshadowing, it is worth giving a chance.

pretty hilarious and having a quite captivating illustration style (on its arts)

the series is about an OP hero who has now achieved the pinnacle of martial arts albeit through extreme past hardships and injustice treatments from his "jerk" and egotistical shifu (master)

he is a laid-back and a bit perverted (alright~ QUITE perverted... LOL) and also a cynical person, plus could also be a jerk who loves being a "bootlicker" while also, in a rare occasion, acting chivalrous when the situation demands, but more importantly he also loves to... more>> give hilarious opinions or "comebacks" (tsukkomi) about the beauties and friends around him

yeah, I wrote about beauties (plural... LOL) and a top-notch art-styles so you can definitely expect some "treats" from the author

Martial King's Retired Life could be rated as an adult read due to its fighting and brawling scene (which can be quite gory in some instances), but this lack any explicit "bed-scenes" (you can expect some "fan-services" from its arts and the MC's perverted tendencies, however, so don't worry too much, in case you came for the "plot")

overall, I find this series as an enjoyable seinen, male youth around age 17/18 and above, series (it is mainly targeted for male audiences, but this should not stop you, female readers, from enjoying this revolved-around-OP-character-series) which offers comedic ambience and the carefree-yet-still-powerful-and-OP hero

please note, however, that this is not a harem series (so far I'm reading the first chapter of the 2nd Volume) where the heroines fall in love with our MC "out of nowhere" and IN FACT, the heroines consider our MC as just an average man who has no worth and no ability as a "Martial World's Top Fighter" (while he is actually one of the "godfather") whatsoever (although this judgment partially comes from MC's decision to "stay-low" and to just enjoy his "retired" life)

in conclusion, do give Ming Feizhen (the MC's name) a chance to prove his (and also the author's) worth!

happy reading! <<less

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 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.
