Everyone Else is a Returnee
August 9, 2016

I like it a lot.

When I think about this novel it reminds me Saitama from One punch man. (I like it that manga very much). Overwhelming physical strength, a lot of training. Clumsiness, awkwardness in the nice way. Very heartwarming novel so far. Give it a try. It should amuse you enough and you'll be starving to read more.

Chronicles of Primordial Wars

I've read up quite ahead on raws with MTLs and it is still very good. Very different from regular cultivation grinding and slaughtering of the random enemies, resource hunting and consuming. It is very refreshing for me.

Guy travels around the world/legendary locations, meets the various tribes

Your and My Asylum

It's the novel one would have to read, not skim. Preferably to read it slowly, to enjoy. It has depth. Emotions. Things one could relay to. It is good read. (At least for me).

Reincarnated Swordmaster
March 17, 2018

I've skimmed the first 60 or so chapters and for me it look that this novel was inspired by mother of learning. Time loop is a bit different (anchor is death) and the MC is swordsman instead of mage.

The swordsmen picked up some weird book/artifact and when he dies, he resets to the same time and carries over with his ki/internal energy/knowledge accumulated. There are conspiracies (involving human sacrifices), powerful factions, some more even more powerful factions. Powerful and even more powerful rivals/teachers. Bit of the world revealed, revisited, updated. The person was the "frog in the well". Learns the things he didn't knew were happening when he was a low level grunt. Sees different perspective of the stuff he knew before.
MC powers up a bit too fast (novel is over 700 chapters long) and not 1/10 passed he already powered up A LOT.

I didn't read that far ahead so hard to compare, but since MOL is not yet finished currently so waiting for next chapter for 3 weeks is a bit longish, the vibes this novel gives so far seemed similar, so chose this one to fill the void between chapters. <<less

Kill the Hero

Yet another necro novel. (Seoul station necromancer, emperor of solo play).
I would describe this as the most chinese korean novel I've read (power up fashion/slaughter/supremacy/etc.) If you like the typical wuxia power up condensed from 2000+ chapters into something like 200, it should be your go-to novel.

Spoiler

MC trains a several trees (poison/skeleton), but skill usage is separate. Has an alter ego hero identity setup for different skill tree which uses to exploit the bad guys, whatever. That's about it, the only bland difference from regular novel

Rebirth of Wild Fire

Status: c200
If you've read Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World you've read 80-90% of this novel. Replace Thief class with fire magician. Add some ramping (mobs can't hit you while you kill them from above) to grind levels and I guess that's about it. The rest is about the same as above novel (at least in first 200 chapters). Recruiting old friends / best players and getting his revenge. Training some weird OP body techniques in RL, etc. Establishing alchemist shops in key locations to provide some key potions,... more>> etc. <<less

Divine Brilliance

A cultivation novel with some plot (so far) and at least some character depths so far.

I get why people are complaining about VRMMO, but in this case the VRMMO the MC used to play is a gimmick to have massive cultivation knowledge cheat. There is no some soul stuck in the ring/whatever to advice the MC. MC had played a lot, had created multiple chars to test out various configurations, etc. MC learned the lore/history in the game who was created to mimic the historical situation in the world 10k... more>> years ago (the period MC transmigrated to).

So with a very extensive knowledge advantage, MC goes to claim his place/domain.

as with a regular cultivation dumb face slapping stories, raiding some caches/whatever this one have a lot of common tropes associated with the genre, but those are implemented at least level above your regular run-of-the-mill cultivation story.

It is worth a try, at least. I've read only like 15% of the story yet, so can't talk about whole story. Start is very decent. <<less
