The Experimental Log of the Crazy Lich
August 28, 2016
Status: c124
This story Is very fun. Starts off really silly and reads almost as a parody of many popular fantasy games and media, much of it western. After a few chapters though some serious plot gets introduced and now I'm hooked. Surprisingly, the world itself is heavily based on Dungeons & Dragons with some Planetscape, WoW, gamer, and other media thrown in. Some of the terminology is translated odd but you quickly realize that most of it is supposed to be D&D classes, gods, and such. (Edit: TL in recent chapter... more>> acknowledged mistranslated names/terms and will fix at a later date). I think this adds a fresh feel. The fantasy system in most WN/LN tend to all be variations of the same generic fantasy tropes. Another refreshing change is the MC himself. Rather than start from the beginning, a young boy starts a journey, we start with a veteran who had already accomplished much and experienced love, betrayal, revenge, and sacrifice. He is an old man with a youthful energy and a rich history. He has lost and given up much but is still driven and spirited. He is an experienced soul playing on a much grander scale than just heroics, he is playing to change the world. And all through this are silly jokes, media references (Tom Riddle among them), and funny banter. I think the potential for the story is high. It is really unique.

Main character starts off ridiculous and silly but then slowly bits of history and other darker traits are revealed. As the story progresses the MC cleverness becomes increasingly apparent. The author never info dumps character tidbits but shows it through dialogue and action making things more believable and enjoyable to read. It helps that there are no filler chapters or blatant word padding to detract from the story. The translation quality is good but in need of an editor. No engrish, or awful sentence structure but fair amount of grammatical errors, overly literal translations, and some unclear structure. Nothing bad and easily fixed with a good proof read. Overall, it's very readable and not that distracting.

EDIT: New chapters have been edited and the quality has really improved. I find myself liking this story more and more. The scale and epicness of the plot just keeps increasing. The author does a wonderful job making it feel appropriately daunting and providing motivation for the MC to keep going. It feels like a high fantasy novel rather than a shallow (but fun) xianxthia. <<less

I don't understand the people who go through downvoting stories with themes they don't like. Only one chapter and they gave it a 1 star. If it's not something to your taste skip it.

So far this looks promising for a smut story. I don't care for most eroge but this one seems to have an interesting premise. A pair of otaku siblings both reincarnate into a eroge otome game and are trying to save the princess character together by achieving the True ending. Makes for Some awkward moments knowing your... more>> sibling is going to get attacked by pervy monsters. We'll see how it fares once a few more chapters are out.

EDIT: Read the raws. This story is hilarious! The characters are all sorts of messed up. I love Harolds development as his true nature is slowly revealed (lol, run Alice). Story pokes a bit of fun at the usual eroge tropes. The s*x scenes are also fun. <<less

The Amber Sword

I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this. The translation quality is surprisingly good even if it is riddled with typos. Everything makes sense and reads smoothly without the clunkiness commonly found in fan-translations. The story progresses surprisingly quickly, skimming over minor details while still providing all necessary information. Which is a nice change from the normally repetitive verbosity that Chinese works seem to favor (Still like them though). It honestly reads more like a Korean/western work. Best of all is the story seems to have a strong plot and... more>> no filler. I think what really sells me is the MC. He is actually admirable and not just strong. He's skilled, intelligent, kind, and strong without going over the top. He is moderately weak at this point in the story. His success is due to his experience and knowledge of the world as a game and is carefully shown as such. So while there are moments of plot armor and conveniences they are minor as proper reasoning is given. I think one of the biggest complaints people might have is with the somewhat cliche personality type fm leads. Classic ditz and tsundere. They both develop and the cliche isn't as pronounced as you would normally see but for those who hate that stuff it may be annoying. (EDIT: The cliche females situation reduces significantly as the story progresses) <<less

Life Mission
June 13, 2016
Status: --
This story has a similar vibe as Evolution Theory Of A Hunter and GANTZ. The style and characters are closer to EToaH but the setting is more like GANTZ. The first chapter is a bit confusing and the following three chapters set up the story and MC. By chapter 5 the story picks up, this is when the MC enters the 'reality' version of the game. I would suggest readers hold off until then to make their decision concerning the story. The protagonist is a famous Gamer who has just... more>> completed a previously undefeated boss mission just before giving up gaming. Not long after, the games servers are suddenly suspended and a new 'reality' version of the game is released. Unconcerned, the MC logs on so that he can finish selling all of his gear before he permanently quits. But once logged in he is suddenly in a life or death scenario featuring the now real monsters from the game! And he is not alone, gamers all over the world are now able take deadly missions in this new reality game and while the rewards are great the dangers are immense. To die in the game is to die in real life. Follow our protagonist as he strives to stay ahead of the pack and reap the rewards for fighting in this new reality.

The reality game in the story is similar to Resident Evil in that an A-virus created mutated monsters that can evolve. Gameplay is like XCOM in that individual missions are taken and reward points are given upon completion that can be spent to upgrade gear. The horror aspect is light as the story is narrated in a detached manner from the MC. This could change as the story progresses. (Edit: as of chapter 25 the horror aspect ramps up.)

Loving the story so far. Could be considered sci-fi survival horror rather than gamer. Really curious about where the plot is going. The way things have been set up there is obviously a lot more going on in the background. So glad the updates are daily. <<less

Dominion’s End
June 7, 2016
Status: v2 prologue
The story is well thought out, with fleshed out characters, and a good atmosphere. Everything is explained well, no gaping plot holes, and the MC isn't smothered with plot armor. Many characters use common tropes as a base (OP older sibling, sis con brother, pretty Arian foreigner, etc) but are done tastefully. Using the readers understanding of the tropes to quickly establish characters that are then developed further. The tropes are also used to provide light humor in a story that is otherwise quite dark.

I am very pleased with the... more>> quality of this story and plan to check out the authors other works. Hopefully, by the same translation group. <<less

A Match Made in Heaven
June 12, 2016
Status: c1
The premise for this story is unique. Our female lead is reaching her age of maturity (16) and her kind father is trying to find her a good husband. In spite of being wealthy, connected, and respected no man will marry his daughter! What should have been a breeze is now a struggle. The reason is due to a fortune made when the girl was young.

“Your daughter has a very strange fate. Her marriage... will be a bit unusual. Her future groom will be half-human, half-ghoul. It’s her fate to... more>> jinx her husband.”

Since no man in the city will take his daughter for fear of becoming jinxed the kind father decides to send her out to deliver goods so that she can look elsewhere to find herself a good husband.

This story is so far is actually pretty funny. The story has a light and subtle atmosphere that's fun to read. The humor is subtle but consistent and adds greatly to the story. Our female lead is also a good character. She is not a deadly martial artist, ethereal beauty, or great genius but a humble, confident, down-to-earth type. Her expectation for a husband are very practical rather than ambitious with her propositioning guards and disciples ignoring the overly beautiful men. Her personality and the atmosphere are refreshing and fun.

This story is high fantasy with magical beast, demons, and immortals. But how things are described is very mystical and immersive. I'm almost more interested in the world than the story. But the authors funny way of handling the reactions of those around the MC are too funny to skip. Shame that there is no group currently translating this story. The two chapters currently available are both long and translated very well. They're worth reading and treating like a short-story as they're enjoyable enough as is. <<less

Story is not very good. Even as a guilty pleasure this story is still not very good. Nothing is explained, there are gaping plot holes, there is no struggle or challenge for the MC, and characters are jarringly extreme. It reads like an outline rather than a complete story.

Xianxia novels tend to reuse the same tropes and characters but are fun in how they go about it. The best ones introduce something unique or demonstrate above avg writing. This story offers nothing new and the writing is below avg. It's... more>> a shameless Mary Sue where nothing goes wrong for the MC. Mary Sues can be fun in a superhero-esque way. But even superheroes need some struggle to be exciting and there is non to be found in this story. Every time something is needed, conveniently some occurrence happens that drops it into the MC lap the following chapter. The author doesn't even try to create any suspense or proper drama. The MC is always calm, cold, amazing, most beautiful, most talented, and can just rudely do whatever she wants because she's amazing. Characters suffer from universal stupidity and linear thinking. Yes, most Xianxia have a seemingly trash MC who is treated poorly who later becomes OP and makes them regret. While they're cheap and easy villains to prop up the MC they usually still display at least superficial amounts of development. The characters in this story are some of the most painfully one-dimensional characters I have ever read. They're behavior is so linear and extreme that it is jarring and unbelievable. Nothing is explained or developed properly. Events suddenly happen and are over within 1-2 chapters. The 'tournament arc' happens within a single chapter. Supporting characters conveniently appear, offer maybe a paragraph or two of reasoning for their support o MC, and then are only seen when MC needs something. Development doesn't happen, just the MC rapidly progressing to OP-ness.

This story is too common to waste time on. It doesn't offer anything unique to offset the terrible writing. In a genre flooded with almost identical stories of superior quality, there really is little motivation to trudge through this one. Suggestion for those who like this story but would want something a step up, I would recommend Demon Wang’s Golden Favorite Fei. It's almost the same but better in every way. Genius Doctor: Black Bellied Miss is another in the genre that's also very good. <<less

Interesting premise but with only a few chapters I can't really say how good the story is yet. MC seems like he's going to be the OP type but within reasonable limits. Translation quality is good and has helpful notes at the end of the chapter. Will update review once more chapters are released.

[UPDATE] Story is entertaining but not amazing. Chapters are mostly the MC monologuing basic game knowledge (what a tank is, how kiting works, stats, etc). Very little actually occurs in each chapter. While the story is light... more>> in substance it has a decent plot. Good casual read. <<less

Back to the Apocalypse
May 1, 2017
Status: --
So far this story seems promising. While its tagged as yaoi there's almost no signs of it 10 chapters in. The MC doesn't even seem Romanticly inclined. Just feels guilt and acknowledges that he was an ungrateful bastard and that he really was treated well. With the history given it seems logical. The story focuses the upcomming apocolypse and building the protagonist character. The MC is a bit unique. Originaly a typical entitled, rich daddy's boy with some underlying insecurities that drove him to seek attention. After returning from the... more>> apocolypse he's now a bitter, disalusioned to the schemes of others. The author uses the MC's inner dialogue disparaging his old self to set up and describe the current situation while also building his character. It's interesting and does both at once without dragging on.

Translation is a but rough but acceptable. <<less

Another World’s Versatile Crafting Master
February 24, 2019
Status: --
This story is a prime example of Gary Stu wish fulfillment. Its the male version of Mary Sue. Almost no actual world building, character development, or proper lead up occurs. The the author just runs from event-to-event showcasing how irrationally awesome our protagonist is.

Story: Self proclaimed otaku who never goes outside suddenly transmigrates as his OP smurf mage mmo character into a unknown fantasy world. Before transmigrating he conveniently transfers a whole acounts worth of rare items to his smurf worth millions of gold, uses it to OP max... more>> all crafting professions to a never before seen godlike level using the never before seen technique of... intentionally failing crafting with high end materials. This is somehow a secret and our MC only has the materials for this from his 2 personal mines and killing a black dragon that gave server-breaking amount of loot. After using his secret technique to level all skill professions in a single sitting he is then immediately sucked into another world. His smurf also has am~a~zing stats~♡. This is already a bit silly but gets worse once the actual story starts.

After waking up to a grumpy old man tries to kick him out only to be wowed by his godlike alchemy knowledge. He takes him as a temp pupil in exchange for alchemy help (since our MC is godlike in all professions). 3 months blaze by with no show just lots of the author stating how amaze-ballz the MC is with his awesome stats. Suddenly the old man gives our MC the boot since after 3 months he has no magic left to teach (even though he stated he only taught him the basics?). Off he goes into the wilderness where after spending months with the old man collecting ingredients and killing monsters he suddenly has no sense of directional awareness? Immediately after his new loss of direction is introduced he happens upon a party of 3 consisting of a hot blonde, her dad, and a mage lusting after the blonde. The blonde is then only refered to by name 2-3 times and is primarily referenced by her physical traits. Our MC then proceeds to self proclaim himself an otaku who has never talked to a pretty girl let alone met one is suddenly a 'lady-killer' and has the following interaction.

"A mage who was powerful yet mysterious, humorous and witty, yet possessed extensive knowledge was a total lady-killer.

The blonde beauty walked with her head down along the forest path, listening to the interesting stories and feeling the manly aura coming from the young mage."

Lol, and on the side the other mage is getting jelly since he saw the 'blonde lady with the slim legs' first. Have to agree with another reviewer on Quidans app "Its like a pair of socielly inept incels trying to out Chad each other".

Translation quality is fine but the story is just bad. <<less

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite

So far it's an interesting light story. Male teen dies and wakes up in a childs body in a fantasy world. Plot twist, MC is cohabitating with the bodies original mind with each taking turns at control. With only 6 chapters, the story has only just started to develop. So far it seems promising. (Warning: There is implied past nonconsensual encounters)

Translation quality is good overall but suffers some engrish. Everything is easy to understand and sounds natural minus some small issues. TL has just recruited an editor so... more>> the engrish bits will be fixed. <<less

This is stupidly good so far. It's not the typical fluffy, cliche ridden experience one normally gets with the 'reincarnation into a fantasy world' trope. Character development actually happens!! Characters are developed and there are reasons behind characters behaving villainous. The story kind of feels like a more serious Avatar:TLAB. Also, the translation quality is fantastic.

Max Level Newbie
April 5, 2017
Status: c73
Starts slow as the story uses the first 10-15 chapters setting things up. Things pick up after the newbie training and gets really interesting. The world building is well done and very creative. The author has taken common gamer tropes and embelished them into something mature and well thought out. Instead of explaining obviouse gaming machanics the author instead focuses on the pros and cons of the gamer system and how the MC overcomes and exploits them. Its a combination of gamer levelups and wuxia enlightenment. Pure grinding won't help... more>> the MC get stronger and so he has to level his skills by properly learning magic, swordsmsnship, etc. This saves the story from being a boring grindfest that half the gamer stories fall into. It helps even more that the author focuses on character development and doesn't waste more time then necssary on the grinding bits. By not getting caught up in the repetitive monster hunting it allows the story to keep a good pace. Some more details on the world would be fun but unnecessary as the world is heavily based on classic MMOs. Its refreshing to read a gamer webnovel thats not smothering the reader in excessive and obviouse details (like basic rpg machanics and pages of level grinding). <<less

Falling Dreams of Fang Hua
July 3, 2016
Status: v1c24
So far I am loving this series. It's very atmospheric without lingering too long on the descriptions. Sometimes descriptions can be too brief but everything flows nicely and all necessary details given. The story moves quickly but still manages to maintain a relaxed atmosphere. This makes for a pleasant light read.

While the story currently has a very light feel there are some tragic undertones that may become a bigger part later in the story. This story has the potential for either a very fluffy or a very tragic ending. The... more>> story isn't very dark, just sad. There are some mature themes, but they are handled lightly and with humor. I think this story would rate as a YA novel (or josei) rather than a younger shoujo because of this. (There is a chapter that has an amusing but blunt depiction of menstruation) <<less

Villain Days
May 6, 2017
Status: c16
Story is pretty good. In Villain Days rather than the MC reincarnating into a despicable character it's almost like going back in time. There is no talk about their prior life or memories of Japan. Other than knowing that they're living in a game setting they only know things from their current life.

This makes it feel more like a second chance story than reincarnation. Also, as things progress the MC is revealed to be a victim rather than a villain. With a focus on self reflection and redemption from... more>> his friends/love interests who's actions had led him to suicide in the original timeline. This gives the a completely different feel from other otome game stories. Truthfully, this story is much better than most of the otome game stories you find on NU.

Spoiler

And I have to agree with opinion on the two friends. As much as I enjoy reading this they were terrible friends and don't really deserve the MC's forgiveness.

That being said, this story focuses quite a bit on their redemption as they realize their mistakes and the horrible consequences that they caused. While the MC forgives very quickly, he doesn't really remember much and so the impact of what he suffered because of them is greatly reduced. It makes the forgiveness much more reasonable since he truly doesn't recall the things that caused his depression. As a reader though, I hope that in the end neither of the friends end up with the MC. They both obsessed over him, tried to isolate him, and took advantage of him. This eventually led to the MC's ruin as he was unintentional ruined by the selfishness of two closest people in his life.

And when the light in his eyes dimmed and he lost his bright personality they left him. Put of by the change in his character they never bothered to find out why he changed. And when rumors slandering his character were spread around they chose to believe them instead of discovering the truth. In the original timeline the MC commits suicide after being strung along, isolated, and used by what he believed to be his friend and lover. So now that the MC has lost his memories and regained his bright personality they both flock to him again. They are slowly learning the truth about the MC prior situation and feel regret. And while I appreciate their remorse I feel that they don't deserve the MC and that their selfishness will only ruin him again. I really hope he ends up with one of the other love interests as they seem to actually care.

Story is alright. The premise is promising and is similar to Overlord in that a guild leader, guild building, and all it's monstrous pets/NPC's become reality in a fantasy world. However it's a poor, fluffy imitation. Things progress suddenly with little development and characters are flat. The relationships between characters are weak and mostly exist because the author says so. The story has good ideas but it's poor execution makes for a superficial read. Those looking for a light read who don't mind the almost bullet-point approach may enjoy this... more>> story. <<less

History’s Strongest Senior Brother
May 23, 2017
Status: c272
I love this story. It starts off as a fun parody of wuxia tropes but later turns into something more serious. The parady bits are incredibly amusing and very satisfying. To witness the MC poke holes at all the illogocal bits of the would-be protagonist and overcome the massive amounts of plot armor protecting woud-be protagonists is so gratifying. Even after the story becomes more serious the parady never disapears. Its still there mocking ridiculouse pet mystic beasts, time travel protagonists, helpful old grandpas, etc.

Some reviewers have complained about the... more>> more serious direction the story takes after the beginning. I love it since its still very different than most wuxia and the parody is still there, just immersed more naturally into the story. Its like a villainous reincarnation story. Our MCs body was originally some villainous playboy meant to instigate the hot blooded protagonist into advancing to OP-ness but do to being taken over by our fav MC, he is now dodging destruction flags (protagonists of all tropes) and steadily climbing to the top. Best part is he never truly acts like a classic wuxia hero who must overcome all with stubbornness and pride. Although, he is OP like one but how he goes about it is different. MC uses his much stronger servant to fight stronger opponents, faceless minions for small fry, shamelessly asks for help when over his head. And all the while making these normally 'cowardly' actions seem like the normal, intelligent actions they actualy are. MC is OP but he's realistic, and the story uses our very real MC to point out just how silly most wuxia standards really are. Love this story <<less

Upgrade Specialist in Another World
June 6, 2017
Status: --
Translation is clunky and reads flat with little emotion. Plot is painfully predictable xianxia/shounen tropes. So many plot holes with plot armor set to max.

MC magically gets gamer upgrade cheat that allows him to power cultivate. Fine, thats pretty standard for the genre. But then he promptly ignores it but still somehow jumps stages that should take months to years in a few days. And is able to kill 5 cultivaters way above his level and hundreds of bandits with minimal effort. MC has no training yet is somehow able... more>> to adequately use all sorts of weapons.

MC's personality is also frustratingly naive and inconsistent for the sake of forcing plot points. One moment hes a clever tactician (which also makes little sense as an uneducated, inexperienced commoner) than suddenly an incredibly dense fool. Silly things happen that should not happen just to force plot.

He talks about long term plans but then instigates them way to soon resulting in dozens of chapters of forced conflict. He shares secrets he knows he shouldn't, to characters that are suspect, and then freaks when sh*t happens -__-

It reads like a jp web novelist trying their hand at a xianxia. <<less

Reincarnator
April 24, 2017
Status: c232
It's interesting how divisive the reviews for this story are. Seems like most people love it or hate it. Personally, I really enjoy it. It's not perfect but it's still very good. The plot has obviously been planned out and there are no filler chapters. It completely breaks immersion in a high tension/action stories when suddenly there is a string of chapters rehashing past events or doing unrelated activities. So I appreciate that the author never stoops to filling pages. That being said, in the later arcs sometimes things progress... more>> too quickly. The author skims over sequential battles or jumps from one battle to the next without properly leading into them, skipping the planning/regrouping between fights. It makes sense but the lack of calm moments makes the big battles lose some tension since the reader becomes numb to the constant action. The fights are still enjoyable but the emotional rush is a bit less than what it could have been. I love the MC. While he's not the most expressive or emotional lead he's a very likable one. The MC has just the right amount of cruelty and kindness. He's a good person who has been made very hard due to the stories events and this has been portrayed very very well. It could be argued that rather than a being good person he's more a trustworthy type as he still kills and schemes but doesn't backstab or lie. And I appreciate the bits of development his character has. This is best seen in the moments when he debates over the merits of his friends ideologies that he uses to guide his actions. While some of the scrubs start to feel the same after 200 chapters the main villains all feel unique and fleshed out with the right amount of mystery to them. Especially the Mad Light Lord, who at first seems very evil (and arguably still is) but has a higher goal that's not too dissimilar from the MC's making the distinction less clear.

It's refreshing to see the MC struggle and suffer in his mad dash to save humanity. Too many stories, especially with the gamer tag, let the MC just breeze through with only minor setbacks. The MC has to frequently make life or death choices, push himself to the point of literally ruining his body and soul, while trying to navigate the hell created by the faeries. While you know he wont die he's still going to suffer.

The world building is very good. While some people may consider it too much I think it's appropriate for how unique the setting is. Only complaint is that sometimes it could be worked in better and at times I wish there was more. The author always gives the minimal amount needed to create the current zone but doesn't always embellish. This could be intentional as the MC is rushing through as fast as he can as time=lives. This doesn't leave him much time to explore or ponder over the zones he's in. It's also nice how different each zone (world) is. The challenge presented in each area is distinctly different from the others. The variety between zones keeps the story from getting stale and I feel that they get better as the story progresses. With each zone being a unique world there is going to be a fair bit text devoted to world building.

All in all it's a very good story but it's not for everyone. I would also recommend taking a break from reading after each arc (zone) to keep the amount of action from becoming to much. <<less
