The Overlord of Blood and Iron
September 13, 2017
Status: --
This had a lot of potential. The story is a pretty common setup and I already see plot holes and such.

I like the use of strategy and the protagonist stupidity ruined it. I like how he can be tough, but he is stupidly naive. People reading to this point and really get upset that the MC doesn't slaughter the guy who attacked him are justified in their opinion.

Some enemies the MC spared including the gangsters from when he just gotten back, before the Grand Calling and a high school kid who got powers. Although some say it is because. "Those enemies did no real/little to no damage, weren't any real threat, and he could make use of them. The attacker because in his view it was just a foolish kid who suddenly got powers, who did no real harm. He just spent years at war with enemy nations, with massive bloody gut wrenching battles, this was nothing but a kid clowning around to him. If the kid had killed people, the MC admitted he would have killed him, but the kid didn't."

The kid started attacking people the moment he got his power, and gangsters are just gangsters they are a collection of people who kill, rape and plunder and commit all kind of crimes. Power does not corrupt, absolute power gives absolute freedom. The fact these people commited evil acts with the power they have means they are truly evil people.

The thing bothering me the most are characters who do not act the way their characters are built up for. Like how most japanese characters are horny little virgin teenagers even if their character backstory set them up as a veteran fleet comander and an aged hero (over 50 years old). A bad character is like an bad actor, it ruins the story. Take this image for example an old heroic general leading his men to war! Skipping on stage singing lalalalala. It simply does not feel right. <<less

It is a good story, can't deny that. But there are a lot of things that would cause people not want to read this.

Spoiler

First: of all the Japanese protects mas murderers, mas rapist, genocide causing slavers and their government.
Second: seems like racist, couple of Japanese women where saved millions of other slaves where left behind.
Third: ever heard of aiming? They start shooting at the eye the size of an little truck and still can't get a hit in.
all combat scenes are like this. Completely ruining the flow of the story.
If you can read past these problems and plenty of plot holes this story is worth the read

Mythical Tyrant

The story is ok, those that gave low scores probably can't even read normal sentence. The main character almost always tries to take the first move.
... more>>
Spoiler

He want's to join a sect not because of his cultivation but for "general knowledge" witch he lacks because he did not have spirit root in his last life and could not get anyone to accept him. He did not go to "another world" like other novels but more of a distant place (other planet).
What does disappoint is that he has several women with him and absolutely nothing happens. Some even get forgotten or left behind.
He is like "i do not want her to be hurt, i'll show him when i'll get stronger" and when he's strong enough forgotten. Then this other girl he accepted a sister in order not to hurt her. Afterward his army marched upon her lands, and he picked up the family next to hers and doesn't even mention his little sister. And then the story just ends.
The End, never mentioned his love, never tried to find his love in "once upon a time (spirit world) " dozens women ignored, 5 women untouched, 4 women forgotten, True love never mentioned again after finding the first one single clue. His important clan forgotten, family forgotten, brother forgotten, twin forgotten.
what about the cultivation clan? Wasn't the plan the create a big family in order to get cultivation resources?
robbed this guy, killed this guy, super speed refining, killed this sect, cleaned up this battlefield and that battlefield and that battlefield and that battlefield. Battlefield. Battlefield..
the ending was unsatisfying. Wished I had stopped reading before the ending.

Reincarnated as a Villager ~ Strongest Slow-life

Well it is slow I guess, not a problem. But his powers make no sense at all if your body can use 5 ton of force then keeping up with a wolf his speed should be no problem. Just using earthmagic to form iron sand into the shape of knives is useless because they would be more brittle than that of dry clay. Normal blacksmiths use fire to remove the sand part (impurities). Well in my opinion metal should not even be considers a part of the earth. What happend... more>> to Nika? He was supposted to teach his siblings (3) magic and only 2 were learning afterwards.

Dominating Sword Immortal

Status: c1485
The plot cannot be called original, it is as generic as can be. I do not mind this as long as the story itself can bring something fresh out.

... more>>
Spoiler

This story did not, firstly, the MC is an idiot and the side-characters are even less intelligent just so the MC looks smart. Most events felt forced and conversation did not flow smoothly. Plot armor is way too obvious.

Oh, I need a stronger skill, runs from a beast into a cave find "body refining manual and fist art low earth realm" and just enough low-level soul stones for practicing it. Need stronger cultivation manual finds just the right level. Needs a boost for his cultivation finds a bottle of hundreds of pills of all 3 kinds Qi, Spirit, Soul.

spends 150 million for something worth at most 10 million saying he might never find it again (harvested once a year but can be found all year round later he goes there and harvest dozens of them)

For a genius researcher of the 21st century, he is too stupid. He does not plan ahead nor think ahead. And I do not know if anyone else noticed but does the entire martial world and the cultivation feels a game system to others as well? Way too fixed for a real world. It kinda reminds me of those Korean novels where the world turns into a game world, lost interest way too fast because it reeks of wish fulfillment where the MC is born to be special and OP. There are those that are funny but the story itself is so bad I do not know if I should be laughing or crying.

Then there is the "good" part, yeah he's satisfied with getting the third place because getting first or second seems impossible.

Only the first competition after that he goes al "whats mine wil be mine! I am number one under heaven blah blah blah using plot armor and sudden powerups. Oh no, he is too powerful, I can not beat him. Makes a breakthrough and the author goes all take my PLOT *cough cough* Sword.

Then there is his training with consist of learning a single move one after another no sword style or arts he is using a move, and he has no defensive swordsmanship? No, he grows dragon bones made of energy from his skin.
Can he learn a move without actually cutting in half thousands of unique treasures with can never be made,

MC gets lucky and finds low-grade treasure with is so rare only 1 out of 10 peerless genius can get one, 100 chapter later MC finds mid-grade and in order to test it with new move cuts in half 1 thousand low- grade treasure a mid-grade treasure is so rare only 1 out of a thousand astral realm master can own one.

300 chapter later MC finds high-grade treasure and in order to test its might cuts in half 1 thousand mid-grade treasures owning a single high-grade treasure makes on invincible among astral realm practitioners. And soul of seas realm would kill for them

by the time MC leaves true spirit continent in order to advance his training (because he can no train without cutting in half treasures) one can expect true spirit continent practitioner to fight with sticks and stones.

Dawnbringer: The Story of the Machine God
May 23, 2016
Status: v2c4
The story is pretty good, and the setting is pretty original. It is just that the character don't fit their descriptions.

Spoiler

The protagonist Vice Admiral Lezirth Dawnbringer, the Commander of Dawn Corps in the First Marines of the Space Federation who became a war hero after leading the human race to victory with the army. After waking up acts like some kind of spoiled hotblooded inexperienced rich kid. I mean truly like a child, and the other character aren't much better either

The story is poorly written.

... more>>
Spoiler

firstly his death was pointless and he did not even save anybody (he fought the robber head-on and got cut because of his stupidity, even if he did nothing no one would have gotten hurt)

He is brought into the "other world" medieval with magic and no a single game or entertainment with gets conquered with just reversi.

The world is for some reason build upon the rules of an rpg and the MC stats grow 10.000x as fast and as strong as ordinary people because of "blessing from all 7 gods" all action skills and magic can be learned with just the blessing so he does not need to put in any effort.

MC is brain-dead and does not have common sense nor does the world when dealing with the MC.

Apostle and representative of gods the saint has to bow before a mere king of a country which would fall into ruin if not for MC solving a world shocking crisis every year. MC as "sub-god" has to do menial labor and trivial task.

In order to raise any and all flags, he fails to try to hide the incredible amount of stats and protections he received from the Gods instantly to both his family the king, guild master and several other people. This is the royal road fantasy of a boy who is at times two-faced (dumb and dumber with an uncontrollable murderous madness) and always clumsy as he is unable to think through any of his actions.

The story fails to be either funny or exciting, a potentially interesting story based upon a simple plot ruined by bad writing and horrible characters.

Apocalypse Summoner
November 1, 2018
Status: --
Most people seems to not have read the book properly, the MC did not go back decades. MC suffered 3 years losing everything and then in 1 year got to legendary rank while being hunted down by everyone because he got framed. And the MC is a reckless, stupid coward and low eq rapist who believes he has at least high iq (he does not). Everything but the setup of the story itself is rubbish. It was an interisting novel until author tried messing with romance. That was awfull.

... more>>
Spoiler

Plotholes start piling up early and in the end thousands of world are faced extinction because of MC his cowardly nature and hypocrisy. Because he does not want to take responsibly for either of the woman he fkd or rpd.

He even called every s*xual encounter he had reverse rape even though it was obvious he forced himself upon several of the woman.

I mean in the fight with the hydra he "regenerates his head back several times" why not eat a piece to grow back that arm? And he acts like a copy of common Japanese MC indecisive yet is described as ruthless? A trigger happy softy? You have guns, cannon, rifles, cars, bikes, and airships even a satellite weapon why not some armor? Well have to say most MC's are like that doing things in roundabout ways

Everlasting Sword God
January 11, 2019
Status: --
good story, average writing. One of 2 branches of Chinese novels (trash MC bullied by all found treasure/ancient genius reborn)

... more>>
Spoiler

This MC does not start weak at the beginning of the novel but already reached the end of cultivation in this realm and is just about to soar. The story is about him easily soaring from one realm to another while he comes across descendants or spirit witch he has sowed karma with in his past life while teaching his disciples.

Typical MC who believes in order to reach the truth of swordsmanship he must be detached and not leave any ties in the world, yet goes around causing trillions of life to perish blaming it on fate. Saying they would have died either way even if he did not interfere (or pushed the red button)

Story is nice, one of few stories where MC does not suffer constant bullying. But crappy MC nonetheless.

If your purpose is to reach the peak and go against heavenly laws and sh*t why fear leaving ties in the world and having kids and stuff, you already have family wherever they are ancestors or descendants does it really matter?

He knew that when he broke the moon a second time to the 7th realm the fierce beast would appear and billions would die if left unsolved so what does he do? A month long bath just like he took month long break before. WTH?

I could have solved it as powerless mortal so how could he not? Jus tell them to build a freaking wall, solved.

A below average harem story, it would have been fine if the characters were remotely human in any way. But they are not. The world itself turned apocalyptic where nobles run into monster domains by the thousands and get annihilated only for the MC to liberate it with his merryman sometime later. Humans learn from mistakes they do not commit mass suicide every year only so some protagonist could use holy magic on them. The magic are also made sloppily.

Spoiler

he gets send to tasks that causes him and his party to nearly die and then they get money and they forget anything. Twice a dragon incl. The undead.

A ruin with 2 robot dragon.

After that he gets his home territory pushed onto him which he must devolop with his own money. He just gives everything to weird super swing spear guy who hires him to do everything, he gets paid out of his own pocket and then the engineering guild and adventure guild swallow a part even though they did nothing. Including taxes he loses 3 parts of his own money for no reason at all but doing jobs for himself. Over 1.000% of his expenditures are wasted on stupid stuff like this. Only reason people would even acknowledge such a person would be for his shortlived fortune. Unless he finds a rampaging dragon every other year.

A Step into the Past
June 4, 2016
Status: --
Great story, horrible plot. This is definitely a first. Normally they have great plot yet the story somehow sucks. This story sucks me in yet can't I can't help but curse it for all of this stupidity.

Many people gives this story a 5 star with make no sense saying it is realistic just because MC waifus die.

But the way characters behave is illogical in every sense and the MC is indeed far to stupid to have made it into the special forces.

... more>>
Spoiler

Young elite special force member travel into the past. With his knowledge about the warring states events, he carving his way into others' fate to try and remake the history as he remembers causing many good people to die uselessly.

It is a journey as MC tries hard to accept the ancient China way of life full of blood, death even though he could live life differently taking an advantage with his knowledge and strength.

The MC started as a lecherous, super magnificent figure - tall and handsome - who gets all the girls. He then lets all of them die either by suicide after getting raped or killed by stupidly taking them out while there are thousands of people hunting him down or letting them get married to some other d*ckhead.
Whether the history of ancient China is true or not is questionable even after he get trough the first couple weeks, And the fact that the MC still doesn't realize this and stays as a "civilized, down-to-earth figure" until the end is idiotic. Typical wuxia/xianxia - with their single-sided plot.
In this ancient chaotic times with vastly different culture he tries to live passively.

[collapse]

Kinda like Japanese MC, yeah that's it. This is like a Japaneses MC rather than action he reacts. He does fall in love with every woman he meets and proclaims his love for her in some way and than she dies because of a stupid choice he made.

At least most Japanese MCs keep their woman alive or at least tries to this MC literally pulled his harem into a ambush and led them die in a rain of arrows. (He just reached an allied city and got himself a house and base)

Very good written but the characters are too stupid to be real. <<less

why the hell did he pay of a bit over 2.5 billion debt with 3 billion should be plenty left. If he had paid a little more attention to fame he could make money flow in. This happens a bit too much so I can't really sympathize with the MC. Its like he's brain dead, narrow minded and shortsighted

The MC is terrible, he is edgy and full of anger and self hate. Every time he tries to help people he causes nothing but trouble for everyone around him and himself. And then he run away to become some kind of forest hikimori only for the goddes to send him back. He beats up adventure for harrasing girl then kicks him out, guy is most powerfull adventure in town so he obviously takes revenge on the girl. Japanese people cannot adapt to the other world obvliously as this is... more>> the average MC and most MC are equally stupid. <<less

The story is different from other yet using many templates. And filled with the very same mistakes most authors make with these stories. So it is above average.

Most people say it is stange healers get treated like trash and complain about why he none can change time like the hero healer did. But it was made clear the healing of the hero was of a higher lvl. And elixer is not that diffucult to get so normal healers are pretty much obselete in that world. The healer is crazy, his... more>> mind is broken. He is a f**king psycopath. It is obvious his actions would reflect that.

Its not a bad novel, it is just not good. <<less

Good story, but like most xianxia novels there are many problems. Many details are forgotten and sometimes they are brought up again but the number or withever is used does not match up. His character is also incomplete, or you could say the main character like most chinese character suffers schizophrenia

... more>>
Spoiler

With heaven as wife, earth a concubine, and people a tripod. He would make every woman that harmed him or his friend into one of his tripods to increase his strenght. He did this 3 or 4 times maybe and he murdered trillion of woman, cities and sect completely wiped out and not a single girl or woman spared.

[collapse]

Most xianxia protagonist are like this they say hey do something like protecting the people and world in order to understand the dao of guardian but when something happens they are like I am too lazy too pinch the ants because I ama high above. When talking to a non heroine character they are indifferent, high above cold and elegant, when meeting a herione character they suddenly become like a horny, hotheaded teenagers.

99 out of a 100 character are like this. Or rather I have never found a book with a real character without this flaw. Even from some of the best like stellar transformation the character is not without flaws. And I am not talking about a character making mistakes because this is human this does make it more realistic. But the fact the character feels like he is made out of multiple character and changes from time to time. Like on moment he is high above and getting colder and colder his mind like a lake undisturbed and couple chapter later he is like screaming "you dare, you dare, this grandfather wil off your sect famillie and everything on this planet/star wrrrahr." <<less

The Desolate Era
May 23, 2016

It's a great story if not for the many time skips and lost information, romance is quite dramatic and laid out pretty good. And his journey is good paced. ... more>>
Spoiler

There are quite some plot holes though, especially annoying was how his maid 'Spring Grass" who raised him and who is one of the only characters he "cried for" just got forgotten to revived even though he brought back to life all kind of ancient gods and devils and people completely unrelated to him.

i believe the stories would get better if the author's tries to get the story revolved more around the character rather than have all the character adapt to the world they are in. This can keep the unique in the way they can behave.

As a novel this is still one of my favorites even if I only gave it 3 stars. The story is good and his journey very detailed even if the ending was rushed. Its just that the character and the relationship was where almost completely empty shells.

Spoiler

I also believe that since he accepted Delia (for waiting for so long) he should have accepted the other girl named Jenne too since she sacrificed at least just as much. I think he should have put some more effort in letting his friends break through and stuff so they don't die like that, like snap saint low level long life. There are a lot of holes in the story, probably because of him mindlessly swinging his heavysword around for no particular reason
