Cat K

This is just adorable and the MC makes a wonderful cat, so wonderful in fact I can't even conceive of him as a human. Every chapter is light-hearted and as a reader you can really feel the catness of everything. The only issue I'm worrying about right now is what the MC is going to be like when he's human since I personally would not want such an independent cat-like personality in a human.

The Marshals Want to Get Divorced

This is really interesting since its premise is something I've not read before in BL webnovels. I really like how the premise sets up its multiverse as the inner world/dream of the ML and the MC has to go through solving the ML's inner conflict. It already seems so interesting with just 2 chapters so far so I have high hopes for this.

Spirit Hotel

The thing about Spirit Hotel is that it's a farce and everyone is the straight man to Feisha Shi, our MC. It's also a bit absurd and a lot punny which is right up my alley for comedy. I have to give props to the translator for the wonderful job he/she/they are doing in getting across the puns and giving actually helpful and interesting translation notes at the end.

Read this for the ridiculous situations the characters get themselves into and their hilarious solutions to them. Read this for the off... more>> the wall character interactions and their slightly less sane relationships with each other. Maybe don't read this for the romance because that's coming slower than drip coffee on the mornings that you forget to set your coffee maker.

Anyway, the humor may not be for everyone because farce + absurd + punny will definitely not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you like any one of those things then go for it and if you don't but you're hoping the romance will help you out then don't do it. <<less

Let Me Tease You

It's not the worst, but it's not the best so 3 stars. If you want to read a good BL novel where the ML bullies the MC then try either The Legendary Master's Wife or Counterattack of a White Lotus. If you want one with a bit of mystery then go with The Founder of Diabolism. Now for the review:

Writing wise I don't like how the story interposes the MC talking with the System in every scene. It's difficult to get into a scene when there are whole conversations the... more>> MC has with the System that no one else in the scene can hear. It basically feels like whatever action is happening just stops and so the flow of the story is pretty jarring.

Character wise the System really limits any kind of character development of the MC. You could say that the character that develops the most in the story is the System. The MC and the ML are the typical versions of the ML bullying MC cliche; there's just nothing really original in how the author writes the cliche.

Translation wise the translation needs an editor. It's readable and I'm thankful for that but to improve readability it needs to be edited. A personal pet peeve are translator interruptions in a story like if it's truly difficult to understand who's acting out which action in a paragraph then I'd prefer just replacing the "he" with the name rather than "he (name)."

So yes, 3/5. <<less

Not going to rate since there are so few chapters, but so far I'm enjoying this. The premise is similar to The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love, The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System, Transmigrating into a Mob Character to Rehabilitate the Villain Plan, and others so if you liked any of that type I think you should be good giving this a go.

Also, usually in these types of stories I'm fairly ambivalent about the original story the MC transmigrates into, but at least in the first... more>> two chapters of this one, the original story looks pretty cool/well fleshed out. Anyway, I will edit this when more chapters are out. <<less

Thrive in Catastrophe

I can't really seem to get into this because the beginning doesn't make much sense to me, or well, one point doesn't make sense to me. The author never addresses in the beginning why ... more>>
Spoiler

no one ever brings up radioing the base. After the crash the first thing the Captain suggests is finding a student to pilot the aircraft, which is really weird especially in a military setting. I'm pretty sure what should happen is to radio for help or radio that there's been a crash. Then when the aircraft that rescues them, which is a military aircraft, has to do an emergency landing there's also no radioing for help.

Actually, even before that when they were going to land on what they thought was some support tower they never radioed the tower to be open for landing. This sort of no communication between aircrafts and bases is at best odd when in a sort of post-apocalyptic military setting. Like how would you know if an aircraft wasn't an enemy aircraft without communicating with that aircraft? It just doesn't make sense, and definitely isn't secure or safe, for a military/research base/support tower to not have protocols to identify aircraft.

It just doesn't make sense for aircraft to not seem to have any way of communication at all. I mean the WN has some sort of pilot simulation pit thing but they don't have radios or something? This is a post-apocalyptic military like setting, why don't the military aspects so far make sense?

[collapse]

So yeah, I may give it another chance in the future, but so far I just can't get into this world. <<less
