A nice relaxing and calming story. As the title suggests it is a very slow paced story. An A-ranked adventurer decided to retire and moved to a remote village he visited once."

If you are looking for action this is not for you.

The story starts out really good. Later on, it suffers from the same issues that plague other modern CN series, it gets very racist and ultra-nationalistic. I have not seen one foreign character that is not an enemy yet (that may change but the way it is going I doubt it). Before I would rate this as a 4.5 but due to the racism and ultra-nationalism, I have dropped it down to a 3.

EDIT:
There is a small group of foreigners that are not an enemy because the princess... more>> is a love interest but when they first met there was still a semi-racist and nationalistic comment made to himself. <<less

MC is beyond broken. His attitude completely changes all of a sudden. Battles and fights are not described.

This novel had potential but then it was just destroyed in a single chapter. There was no rise to power it just instantly happened.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Mahouka is my favorite Japanese light novel, and the anime is one of the best adaptations of a LN that I have seen.

Spoiler

Tatsuya is considered bad by the normal standards used to judge people in the world but his unique abilities put him on a terrifying level.

He is a genius who solved flight magic which was considered one of the biggest problems for over 100 years, he is also working on solving another one of those issues.

I Reincarnated Into a Vending Machine

At first it sounded like a stupid story, but it turned out to be an awesome and unquie story.

MC is not overpowered. He can run out of energy by not selling products and he can be destroyed by taking too much damage. He is powerless to stop any danger to himself without help. He can only repeat the preprogrammed phrases.

... more>>
Spoiler

He is limited to selling what he had purchased in his previous life.

The only problem is the translation speed. At the current speed of a chapter every 20.5 days it would take a 11 years to finish. <<less

MC is completely heartless, he treats everyone as objects to be used. There will be random phrases like "He will be more humble in the future" or "He is generous", they will then be contradicted only a few chapters later.

Author justifies MC's massacres by saying they were all for his benefit so MC doesn't just like wonton massacres.

Heavenly Jewel Change
December 7, 2016
Status: c308
5/5
The cultivators get jewels as they progress through the ranks. This story has a more unique cultivation method than other novels. Zhou Weiqing has a great fear of death yet has to practice the most deadly cultivation method because of his meridians, other cultivation methods are not really explained. The author does a lot better job of managing MC's harem than most other authors do for their main characters. His harem members are also not useless and all of them are stronger than him when they meet. A heavenly... more>> jewel master is a cultivator who has both physical and elemental jewels.

Rape Victims Become Lovers is done a lot better than other novels.
Spoiler

At first, she wants to kill the MC but because he is a heavenly jewel master he is too precious for the kingdom and she puts the kingdom first.

EDIT (Finished) :

3.8/5
The ending felt very rushed starting around chapter 229. There as was no closure, the story just ended after the final battle. No marriage ceremony despite it being one of the major driving points of the story. Out of the 6 official harem members, only one hasn't slept with him. There were also hints of another 2 harem members but it is never confirmed. The story should have had 2 more chapters to wrap things up nicely. A terrible ending to a great novel.

Harem (In order)
Spoiler

Official Members: Shangguan Bing'er, Xue Tian'er, Shangguan Fei'er, Wu Yuehan (Little Witch), Shangguan Xue'er (never slept with MC), Dongfang Hanyue
Unofficial Members: Xiao Ruse (Chapter 263), Elf Emperess
He has two sons (never named), with Hanyue and Tian'er.

Start of rushed ending (chapter 229)
Spoiler

Once he discovers saint force the story really speeds up, after going to Heavenly Jewel Island subspace for the after the second tournament is when you can tell the ending is being rushed he went from 6 jewels to 9 jewels in the span of a few chapters.

Final Battle
Spoiler

The final battle was lackluster and the enemy was defeated by and random new character. He offers MC a spot as a god and is declined.

Really good so far. MC isn't afraid to get his hands dirty. The strength gap between adventures and monsters is explained really well even if the MC can overcome these gaps in strength.

Plundering the Dao of the Immortal Journey
December 18, 2017

Overall 4.5 (round up to 5)

A bit of a slow start but there are many other great novels like that. There are some harder parts to get because it focuses a lot on Chinese Poetry early on. Once he starts cultivating it gets really good. It's not just an average transmigration xianxia. The knowledge he has from the future only helps a bit with some strategy and kinda plagiarizing poems/works from his word (the author mentions sometimes that he changed the work to suit that world so it's not... more>> plagiarism).

The most recent pirate arc was awesome, he became a complete badass. (Starts around chapter 210)

EDIT c243: Stuff has really started to pick up since the pirate arc. There are still some slow chapters but its a huge improvement since about the first 100 chapters. <<less
