Especially nice was our MC on the Immortal Executioner Stage. Very unique when I read it and slowly made me love the development...
Here’s hoping our MC manages to become his master’s disciple again...
For example, when he's with Rao Aimin, he somehow gets away with groping her entire body without getting rejected. The idea that she's asleep won't cut it; she's one of the five living martial arts masters and I doubt she doesn't know what happens when they're asleep. Blah.
He solved one of the world's unsolvable math equations (Our world already solved it). He is now an associate professor of math at Peking University and one of the world's Mathematicians.
He unleashed the Panda virus and its 100 variants on South Korea due to the South Korean hacker attacks. Since he used the false ID of "2", his fame and infamy isn't impacted. He is still, however, the third rank hacker in the world due to his destructibility; his goal with the Panda Virus was only to destroy!
He is the successor of the Taijiquan, a lost martial arts with no successor (except for this one girl who still isn't as strong as him). He is equated to be near equal to the martial arts masters.
These are just a few of his greater accomplishments.
The MC is not originally one of those high spec males. Instead, he was a regular fatty who was supposed to fall into ruin along with the villainess, as said earlier.
The MC’s body is kinda high spec.
The MC has a realistic job of magic user and blacksmith.
The MC’s family is laid back and that results in their territory declining. The MC soon changes this around.
Others I can’t think of.
First off, the story follows the pattern TJSS is setting and is 10, 000 years after DD2 finished. This makes it 20, 000 years ahead of DD1. For those wondering if the first two stories had any impact on the current one, you'll find that the main characters of both have become old legends and fantastical myths.
The main character of DD3 is Tang Wulin. His background is easy to spoil if you read TJSS's short story, DD2.5. Otherwise, he'll appear as the most ordinary MC of the three stories. His parents are mainly ordinary low-income parents and he awakened to a trash Bluesilver Grass. Unlike Tang San, his talent in it is completely mundane. As a character he is the more relatable one of the three as he lacked Tang San's deep maturity and Huo Yuhao's polarizing childishness and avenging air.
Shrek does not become a part of Tang Wulin's life for a number of chapters. Instead, TJSS introduces the world of DD3 to readers through Tang Wulin's interaction with more ordinary academies, various organizations, as well as school competitions for youngsters like himself.
The setting of DD3 reveals that the world has entered the modern-ish era. Soul Power grows to become the equivalent of energy as it powers machines and devices in this world. Of course, this means that Soul Masters become portable batteries and have more flexibility with the devices. TJSS also introduces two new combat methods for Soul Masters. That is, Mechas (giant robots controlled by a pilot) and Battle Armor (mechanical armor that promotes the user's abilities). Both have their perks and their issues and TJSS slowly expands on them as the story continues.
Overall I view DD3 as the better of the trilogy. While I liked DD1, the MC wasn't as relatable to me and the world really was quite simple and ordinary. DD2 had a lot of new things that contrasted greatly with DD1. It was refreshing, but the issue for me was the MC. TJSS didn't make Huo Yuhao that relatable and to me he was just a really angsty teenager.
If you liked the world of Douluo Dalu, you'll find that DD3 continues to offer up its diverse range of fleshed-out martial souls and detailed battles. A nice improvement from the two is TJSS developing the MC's side jobs. In DD1, Tang San had the side job of forging and constructing as he remade his original world's hidden weapons. In DD2, Huo Yuhao developed and made advanced Soul Devices that grew better as his martial soul matured. Neither was explained in great detail and was disappointingly sidelined.
DD3 took this to a new level with its blacksmithing. The MC is a prodigy of blacksmithing and TJSS does not skimp on the details and scenes as the MC forges. One of the best parts of the story to me is actually the blacksmithing scenes as it seems to breathe more life into the story and shows that the world of DD isn't just focused on martial souls.
Now the MC is rather generic in reincarnation standards. He's reincarnated, so he's obviously smarter than usual, but he has no qualms about showing how smart he is. He shows off his language and walking skills early and luckily gets no repercussions. Everyone is joyful about the genius.
And then there is where the author goes all confusing on the plot. For some inexplicable reason, the author decided to make the MC a trash character. The MC is viewed as a cripple and the respect he has in his household plummets. Not an uncommon theme. What is uncommon is for the author to turn around and make the MC normal/genius after only a couple chapters. He then proceeds to skip the MC's childhood completely and then move on to the school arc. Very lacklustre.
At the school, even though everyone is at least 16+, everyone seems to act like the standard 12-year-old bully. Nothing about the characters makes me assume they have maturity unless they get into a fight, the fight being instigated because of some childish Xianxia-like attitude of disrespect for strangers you look down upon.
So he comes across a girl (who's butt is connected to one of his magic peaches) and hears her masturbating. He confronts her and tells her to go home and do it and she tries to blackmail him into doing what she wants by saying she'll scream if he doesn't strip.
He's smart enough to understand that stripping would give her ammunition and eventually wears down her resolve.
He eventually comes to the conclusion that the Magic Peach was connected to a person's butthole and does several experiments. Eventually comes to another conclusion that putting anything into the peach will result in that thing appearing in the other person's ass.
If a bit sticks out and isn't all the way inside the peach butt, then while it does have the presence of affecting the person's butthole, the item will not appear.
He uses this to his advantage by putting a plastic bag in (to prevent stuff getting wet) and then putting what he needs inside the peach butt plastic bag).
He basically has a real world dimension bag... only the size is tiny because realistically speaking, a butt can't carry THAT much.
Everyone around can easily obtain god genes, so don't expect anything cool from the start. The only thing going for the MC for most of the 200 chapters I've read is a cultivation technique that isn't even unique considering he stole it off someone he killed. I'm not like @Stark3 and won't read it all just to find out if he finally gets the super god gene.
Probably the only thing I can see anyone following this for is the slightly original idea of killing beasts to acquire their beast souls and equip themselves with equipment. Everything else is rather boring and offers no 'replay value'. I don't see myself continuing this unless I have literally nothing else to read.
The MC can change sushi into women. The women don't forget their memories of him, so a salmon sushi one day will be the same as another salmon sushi the next day.
After he has s*x and they both finish, the sushi girl turns back into a sushi.
Any semen he had ejaculated into her now covers the sushi.
... he has a fetish of eating the semen covered sushi along with a dash of soy sauce.
Ero wasn't that exciting either.
Do you know, one of the reasons why good novels aren't read is mainly because they're covered up by bad marketing. For this, Monster Factory, I blame the covers. The first cover I saw was a bunch of hulks in construction equipment. The second cover is a cute cartoon monster that's supposed to attract what kind of audience?
Monster Factory is a good novel for what it's supposed to be. Monsters? Yes, there are monsters and the rules behind their use make sense and are nice to read. You have grunts who follow commands well and are very hardworking and precise. You have master craftsmen who are smart, sly, confident, and very good at giving commands. There are land dragons for mining, living armor metallurgists, electric brats with supercomputer-grade tech skills, and giant titans 20 meters tall for the delicate, but massive work. While the MC is limited in how many monsters he can have, that limit increases as his factory levels up and the stage he has to walk becomes larger. It's nice to see some balance.
The Monster Factory provides the MC with both monsters and black technology. He goes from building super construction machines to household robots, to the most futuristic phone one could hold. His smart electric cars are to die for, and I know for sure I would like a set of super light, super comfortable bulletproof clothing.
This MC's goal is to surpass the previous the businesses around him and beyond. He eventually goes against world-grade companies like Apple, and he isn't afraid to tackle them in their home territory.
Countries? The US is his main issue atm, and that's mostly due to President Trump trying way too hard to insincerely catch him and his super company (sending a military jet to harass your private plane home is a d*ck move, but seems very Trump-like).
Nationalism and racism is minimal, but it's not completely gone. But since I've read HacKer, it's on the easy side of things.
Currently, I feel this novel deserves a higher score than what it currently has.
