I read raw, to the final chapter, and want to redeem my lost time!
The first 50 chapters are good. The translation is pretty descend. So I jump from the translated to raw.
However - my heart bleed!!. The plot turns confuse. The illogic arises. Important characters are thrown away, despite being praised highly in the first 100.
His world-shaking master, his overlord-benefactors, his family, his friends, his developing army, his world-chattering rune making ability, etc, etc - all become garbage, not being mentioned again.
Totally disappear, never be seen again.
Even his raped woman simply disappears !!
If that's not disappointed enough, the final act.. All world buildings just simply - disappears.
So, for you who read TL version, better prepare your mind. Read each chapter/act as it is. Do not expect development. Discard any characters you like. Just focus on what MC *currently* does, then you'll be happy.
Novel title : Cust of sacred Runes?
Author DROPPED the development of the runes around ch.300.. So, what's next ???
I really like to know how much readers will remain after they read the translated? Translator's state of mind, too.
Good story. Good plot. Average MC's plot armor. Good characters development. Good fighting act. Good "weapon" development.
The one big fly in the oil is - the very first chapter. Drop any reason out, accept whathappen-is-whathappen, and enjoy the rest.
One of the best xianxia. Unlike other generic kill-loot-kill-loot-cycle MC with the mountain-thick plot armor. MC does no butchering until ch.150+. Sorry for readers who love blood bath.
MC is the farmer.
So many characters!! Especially in the last half of the novel. Some minor & insignificant characters were mentioned bit here, bit there, in the boring scene. Suddenly! They became the pivot! You have to reread previous chapters again..
Misery love is the causes of all trouble of the story
Harem, s*x, erotic, intercourse, 18+, cheating, mafia, blood bath, gang fight, (boring) white collar love&cheat in business, boasting hi-so life style, overt OP MC who drive BMW at 240 km/hr, flat-character MC female who slowly drive bentley, side lover girl who becomes biggest mafia boss, etc, etc.
However, once past this boring (???) first few acts (with skipped reading), you will exclaim "WTF deze 'tory!" and push in the reverse gear to start reading again.
The final 10 chapters exposed that the whole story is plotted. Everything that's developed - whether the fuxx-ing by chance between MC and CEO, their love&hate, MC's past dark history, his path to godship & immortal, etc, etc.
Seem that the author can't escape from the 'writer block syndrome'. The later chapters become boring and boring and boring. Not 'dao' or 'cultivation' anymore but ordinary novel about tea business.
