I Don’t Like The World, I Only Like You
January 21, 2016
Status: --
Perhaps my favorite piece of literature I have ever read. I Don't Like The World, I Only Like You is medicine for the soul and a furnace for heart. It is a romance without any of the angsty, unnecessary drama that makes us irritated beyond belief and a comedy that never fails to make laugh in all the right ways. Despite being one of the lightest series I have ever read, it is at times surprisingly heavy with all of the ways it makes you think about what love and... more>> life really is about and what they mean to us. In the end, I Don't LIke The World, I Only Like You is something that not only I like, but something the whole world would like if everyone had the chance to read this treasure. <<less

Review up to chapter 6. An intriguing series with a lot of potential. Unlike a lot of series with “overpowered” male protagonists, the protagonist of Lv 2 seems to not really care about, well... anything, which is refreshing (since most series with an overpowered protagonist tend to climb the social/divine/harem hierarchy as quickly as possible). Instead of being about powering up, it seems as though the protagonist cannot get anymore powerful and acknowledges this in order to focus on a fantasy/slice-of-life story. Written well with a genuinely compassionate and reasonable... more>> main character, I cannot wait to read more. <<less

Tales of Demons and Gods
January 21, 2016
Status: --
Currently one of the best, if not THE best, Xianxia series being translated at the moment. Tales of Demons and Gods is a series about how an extremely smart and powerful person would re-do his life and start over again as a talent-less and weak teenager and it executes it very well. Unlike the oh-so-popular and common reincarnation genre, TDG is about do-overs and the creativity in the writing allows the series' characters and world to thrive. By being sent back in time instead of being reincarnated, we are shown... more>> how Nie Li's past motivates him to do things differently in his present with the same resources he had in his past life instead of being shown how a reincarnated person would take advantage of a new world and exploit it to their worst. This series keeps you rooting for Nie Li as he changes his future for the better, as it is what anyone would want to do if their past was drowned in tragedy. Fortunately, this series is anything but tragic and is one of the most addicting series I've ever had the pleasure of reading. <<less

An underdog series that thrives from having two wonderful main leads. The Demonic King Chases His Wife is an interesting Xianxia series that is very similar to another XIanxia series, Descent of the Phoenix, since the two series have essentially the exact same premise. While Descent of the Phoenix failed to impress me due to having the male lead character tumble off the cliff of pointlessness, DKC manages to balance between the female lead and male lead by having the female lead portrayed as cunning and underestimated, and the male... more>> lead as powerful and ruthless. Although the series suffers from occasional awkward writing that never fails to praise the main characters for how beautiful and clever they are, and side characters that you tend to forget after the 1 or 2 chapters they get to try and ruin the female lead’s life, DKC is a good series that will having you rooting for the main characters in every short, yet addicting chapter. <<less

Magi’s Grandson
March 28, 2016
Status: --
3.5/5, 7/10. A review as of chapter 36. A decent series that can potentially screw itself over. It's a typical overpowered protagonist from another world series with very little that can be called unique. The main character is compassionate and powerful who loves a shy and kind bishoujo with a practically perfect life. However, it is executed well, which is why it's currently rated so high by me and many others. The writing is good (helped along by the great translator) and it picks up with great battle/action scenes whenever... more>> it's about to go into a lull. However, due to the intrinsic "perfect" nature of the plot, I'm scared that the series will write itself into a boring hole that only knows how to praise its main character. It seems like it's not heading in that direction, but it easily can and only time will tell if it does so. Until then, Magi's Grandson is a solid reincarnation/fantasy/romance series with great action, enjoyable characters, and a well-built world. <<less

Hunting for a Delicious Wife (Before)
March 28, 2016

A very meh male-domineering series (so far). This appears to be part one of a longer series, but as of now, I am not very impressed. A decent premise that is let down by poor execution. The male protagonist is portrayed as a charming, powerful playboy and keeps him that way until the end. Although we are given insights into how his thoughts and personality change, his actions do not. The female protagonist is written in a way that we sympathize with her and feel that it is unfortunate... more>> that this innocent rabbit ran into his claws. Not all of it is terrible though. It seems that the main characters will go through great development, the light-hearted atmosphere is pleasant to read, and the two prominent side characters are enjoyable whenever they appear. A disappointing part one, but I'm hoping that part two is better. <<less

My Pet Is a Holy Maiden
January 21, 2016
Status: --
A ridiculously heavy first chapter followed by light, fluffy cuteness. My Pet Is A Holy Maiden is not about bestiality, but about semi-bestiality. That sounded much better in my head. Although only currently 18 chapters translated, I have to say that is quite a peculiar and interesting series that can only get better with time. It starts off rather dark and heavy, but takes off from the second chapter into heart-warming and cute moments with sincere feelings that shine through with the writing. Who knew that a series about a... more>> boy and his bird would be so sweet? I'm looking forward to more chapters of this series, and hope My Pet Is A Holy Maiden doesn't turn into guano. <<less

Coiling Dragon
January 21, 2016
Status: --
The golden standard for Xianxia. Coiling Dragon is currently the longest fully-translated Xianxia series, and it is a thrilling adventure from beginning to end. Perhaps the most famous Chinese novel series in the west, Coiling Dragon is a tale of battles, revenge, power-ups, love, friendship, family, power-ups, and the difference between mortals and gods. And did I mention power-ups? Perhaps what makes this series so popular is how similar it is to shounen manga and anime in Japan. By no means is it bad, but it is somewhat irritating when... more>> you can start comparing Coiling Dragon to Naruto and feel like they have a similar ranking system. It also has writing inconsistencies, with some arcs being engaging and exciting, and other arcs just putting me to sleep after reading the first couple sentences. Despite these flaws, Coiling Dragon has heart, creativity, and characters that help establish it as one of the best Xianxia series out there right now. <<less
