this story starts off well and seems to be interesting, but it later slowly turns the MC into an arrogant and selfish person.

while the change is slow and not abrupt, partly because the slow is slow and is mostly a slice of life of an MC who wants to be a hermit, it does leave a bad taste in your mouth once you realize that the MC isn't the same MC you've started to like at the start of the novel.

at the start, the MC is portrayed as... more>> a nice and kind person. he literally jumped into a river and almost drowned to death while trying to save someone. he is filial to his parents and respects the old. he doesn't want to interact with the powerful people but is persuaded to by one person and then more and more people start looking for him. not to mention that the system itself issues missions where he has to get expensive herbs to make medicine.

the second he gets rich however, all these is forgotten and the MC wants to live life as a hermit, dedicating his life to the system and becoming the best pharmacist in the world. the system however, forces him to actively seek patients and heal them.

as I mentioned earlier, he needs to buy expensive herbs to do this so he becomes okay with healing the rich and powerful. however he soon slowly shows his arrogance, where he refuses to treat people and is fine with watching them die if they do not obey his treatment plans which are almost all lifestyle changes (such as - do not eat fish, do not drink alcohol.. ect - oh yes, the author also hates fish for some odd reason since eating fish is somehow the root of all evil)

after a hundred chapters or so, the MC becomes proficient enough to use his medical knowledge to hurt people. and he does this often. making people who do not conform with his morals and views of the world or incur his displeasure crippled/handicapped/suffer.

strangely, he does not do anything to the rich people who target him and only attack the goons who annoy him and his parents.

fast forward a few more hundred chapters where his cultivation finally puts him at the top of the world, he starts using his internal strength to burst people eardrums and drive them insane as well.

at chapter 600, he finally causes someone's death due to his selfishness. he clearly knows that his formation on the mountain is harmful as it almost killed his mother a long time ago, and the formation later caused the death of someone who walked in accidentally to try and pluck some wild grass.

this formation is a little strange to be honest. at the start, it was only a an illusion formation, but later it became a qi gathering formation for no reason, then it started to hurt people and kill people...

oh and the MC also went on to burst the eardrums and drive the children of the old man whom he killed when they confronted him about it.

as for the romance....

i dont know what the author is trying to do with the romance honestly.

he was in a good relationship with one of the characters and they were happy and almost engaged, but she just dropped out of the story. a few hundred chapters later, it was said that they weren't talking ever since and then just gone....

and that sick rich girl who was treating him suddenly kept on popping out in the story.... <<less

i really like this.

despite how the MC is a complete moron and every cell in his body is a complete coward, it's fun to read. remember, the MC is like 12? years old. his entire life he did nothing but eat rabbits. his power obviously does not include an increase in his IQ or his intelligence but it definitely shrunk his balls.

mmm the though process of a beta... and how he tries his best to achieve his 'normal' 'boring' life.

the story is ridiculous and all the treasures in the entire world keeps appearing infront of the MC for no reason.

he is a reincarnator from earth and he has a set of cultivation techniques that has over 10000 stages. He uses it all the way from chapter 1 to chapter 9999 and it's basically better than every other skills the entire universe has created.

he is born with the strongest and never seen before martial spirits so ignore the synopsis because his spirit alone can flatten the entire universe.

the second he... more>> is old enough to walk, he walks to a lake and finds a cave with skills and weapons from another continent from a person who can destroy the entire continent he is at right now by flicking his finger. This also comes with strong bodyguards that can kill the king of the country he is in with a stare, and an entire sect too! This sect constantly sends him stronger bodyguards each time he moves to a stronger country too!

Spoiler

he later finds that this guy was captures and tortured for billions of years because of power struggles in the clan. No sh*t. You left all your weapons and stuff in the cave so durh

[collapse]

when he goes to another country for the first time, the bodyguard has a senior brother who is also the strongest man in the entire country!!

when he goes to school, his spirits dig up one of the strongest treasures in the entire world for him! WOW!

one of the good things in this novel is that his cultivation increases REALLY fast, but this also means that NOBODY will EVER matter because he will keep moving to stronger countries/realms. There is also 17 different cultivation realms so far in the raws (yes! 17!!!) and the raws are not even done!

200 chapters in, he also starts becoming cocky for no reason. He will taunt his enemies by telling them about ALL the treasures and skills he has, then kill these enemies who are 1 realm ABOVE him in ONE HIT. 2 lines later, he will remind himself that he can't let anyone know about the treasures he has.

also he cultivates by eating super rare pills that drop onto his lap that nobody else can find and his cultivation increases monthly. He also has an ability to create money out of air. I'm not lying.

don't read this.

Remember this line " is that so?" if you want to read because the second you start seeing this, you know the novel has went to sh*t. <<less

The start is really awesome, but after awhile, you realize that you are just wasting your time reading this.

entire chapters are used to describe one move in a fight and fights are so slow and after the first few hundred episodes, you'll just skip them.

the MC always fails to kill his enemies because either he's too weak or too scared, so he'll let them beat his dog, kick his parents, burn his house and whack his horse for a few years while he trains then come back and kills them.... more>> it's fine if it happens once or twice, but this happens almost every arc.

the bad guy, doesn't die. he does not die. they spend 50 chapters fighting, then when he's about to die, they'll stop. or he'll die then revive....80% of the novel is the MC just fighting the same guy over and over again with him going to new towns, pissing off the mayor and fighting, running away, watching his horse get beat up, come back kill him, meet bad guy. fight. restart. <<less

The novel starts off well but it quickly becomes trash.

The MC character also changes quickly.

For example, he threatened to wipe out the demon race in front of the demon king who he can only run away. He is clear that he cannot win but still he does it anyway. He also raped one girl and immediately said he didn't want to take any responsibility. Funny because it was the same thing that happened with Su Yan but he wants Su Yan so badly vs this girl who has done nothing... more>> but help him. Later one he also tries to rape another girl and only stopped after she threatened to break his dantian.

This MC isn't the same guy you read in the first 700 chapters anymore. He becomes utter trash for no reason. High realms also keep on popping out for no reason and the novel drags on to 4000+ chapters when it should have ended around 1800 <<less

The Sacred Ruins

The other reviews are extremely misleading.

this novel isn't bad but it isn't good either. The author is trying to write a mystery novel but doesn't do it well, leaving you wondering what the heck you are actually reading. Alot of reviews are telling you that this is the 'most hilarious' novel ever but that is not true. There is actually also no mystery here at all, just that the world was damaged and it's slowly recovering which is what caused the "Apocalypse".

some people talk about how the selling and auctioning... more>> of enemies is hilarious, but it's really not THAT funny as he essentially captures them and ransoms them back. There is almost zero bidding going on after the first chapter and it becomes more of a ransom exchange for the majority of the plot.

not to mention that the translation are not even near the funny arcs yet so there is zero "funny" chapters right now.

if you can power through the first 70 chapters or so, you will understand a little bit regarding what is going on, and the MC powerup/fighting arcs start. The fighting also occurs non-stop and it becomes tiring to read after 400-500 chapters as nothing else ever happens. He becomes so strong that he just beats everyone who comes even if they are 2 realms higher and all sorts of people from all over the universe arrives which later becomes a plot hole as they are not supposed to.

The first 70 chapters are written in such a way that you will have no clue what you are reading, what is going on and it is completely boring as the characters themselves are also trying to figure out what the heck is happening, and the only thing happening in the first 70 chapters is a bunch of people fighting and killing each other for fruits, and the MC obtaining a breathing method that makes him stronger than the publicly acknowledged no.1 mutant in 2 weeks (?).

this is also not a cultivation novel but an evolution novel, where the vast majority of people have to eat fruits and "evolve" their body into stronger realms. This also lengthens their lifespan but it is not immortal cultivation or seeking the dao.

would I recommend this to someone else? The answer is clearly no.

there are many other novels that are better to introduce to someone else.

but would I continue reading this? Probably yes right now because alot of the questions are answered and it's purely a "beat em all" novel right now. <<less

The author has some skill in writing as he constantly reminds you that time is important, however the author shoots himself in the knee by stretching time for the MC.

The author constantly tells you the amount of days required from one city to another to create a sense of distance yet throws it away so that the war will not come before the MC is ready. By 'ready' I mean becoming stronger than god.

In 250 chapters, the MC progresses from zero to the 2nd highest cultivation level in the world.... more>> He travels around half the world, fight wars, explores new lands, battle gods and destroy cults in 2 months. Yet according to the author, just the time required to go to the nearest town takes 3 days.

Some readers will try to tell you that events which took place only took half a day to end but still the travel time is obviously stretched.

If u want to read a novel that makes no sense, breaks logic. This is for you. Otherwise stay away. <<less

Returning from the Immortal World

Status: c348
The starting is good but later on the novel becomes really boring. I don't know what I am reading for as the MC only does things to get revenge, but he obviously doesn't care about anyone and anything.

The further you read, the less things matter and the MC is literally just killing everyone who blocks his way with a kick.

His parents and family is forgotten, his harem doesn't matter and they only appear once in awhile to remind you that they are still clinging on to him, but the majority... more>> of them are also forgotten and doesn't matter. Not to mention that his entire 'revenge' is a joke at the end.

All the interesting bits about cultivating in modern society is gone the second he enters university.

The story is basically

1- best part, high school student struggling to fit in with society and get out of poverty

2- university and developing his island - he literally stops caring and kills people for annoying him

3- everyone in 1&2 is forgotten, including his family, everyone who he doesn't like is killed becuz lulz he can.

4- why are you still reading this novel? <<less

Martial King’s Retired Life

Leaving a review here because the translator seems to mind these alot and cries easily if many people gives a bad rating so I'll give it a 4.

I really like this novel, it's one of the funnier novels out there but the reason why it doesn't get a 5 and a 4 is because it doesn't have a plot. I haven't finished volume 2 since I'm waiting for more chapters to read but so far it's just the MC goofing off with his 2 friends who, are made into goofy... more>> characters by the MC despite their serious character. The main female lead also seems to have become a comical character and somehow everyone seems to tolerate the MC's nonsense which is not logical, since they believe the MC to have no value at all to the organization.

The end of volume 1 drops a hint about the MC past which doesn't make sense, trying to make it a little more serious and perhaps introduce an antagonist but....

Right now, it's really just a feel good novel, where the MC goofs around and brings everyone down to his level. There's nothing wrong in reading this or getting more people to read it but there's also no main issue to talk about, unlike the silly alchemist which actually a power struggle taking place in the background and a main antagonist. <<less

Talisman Emperor

1/5 stars if u want a good novel to read.

5/5 stars if you want to read tournament emperor.

There is absolutely nothing but tournaments in this novel.

Very disappointing too because the starting was really good with the cooking and talisman crafting. Also nothing seems to matter after awhile. So much was talked about how the restaurant was 'protected' by a higher power yet it was smashed to bits and all the staff killed and yet nothing happened. The weak and alone MC had to take revenge himself and even the city mayor tried to kill MC.

great start but author makes MC dumb so that the other dumb characters will shine.

MC is more dense than JP isekai MC.

AGAIN, this novel separates the girl because he's weak and she doesn't appear until 1000? Chapters later.

Author doesn't even remember his own cultivation system here.

just read TTNH which is way better. Don't waste your time on this.

this story is really good but the TL has dropped it.

c65 is the last chapter and c66 is basically a huge FU from the translator. This is because c66 is when the MC starts to change history and create his own 'future'.

the frustrating thing is that c65 is essentially a good end for us unless someone wants to pick it up so don't read c66.

assuming c65 is the end, the novel is about someone who time travel back and helps nintendo create and market the games we love, and enjoy... more>> life in the 80s <<less

GFS threw away the MC's personality as fast as possible. making GFS about the food only. this made GFS boring to read since the food isn't even real or possible to recreate unlike Shokugeki no Soma.

if u want to read about a person who is reduced to nothing more than a cooking robot, customers who can be called A, B or C, dishes that are real but impossible to recreate and is essentially fictitious besides the name of the dish... read this!

An example of the dishes in GFS.

Sovereign of the Three Realms

A complete waste of my time. seriously.

It starts out very good, you get very good MC, side characters, friends and enemies. but guess what? they're all shoved one side later and never talked about.

All the characters you like will be written off for no other reason besides that they are not the MC.

... more>> The entire novel is basically nothing but tournaments. he goes from country to bigger country to sect to bigger sect and joins tournaments after tournaments. the novel should be titled "sovereign of the tournaments".

The MC cheat is supposed to be knowledge, but yet he is able to slap people above his cultivation levels to death.

The love interest are pretty good, but again, he only get 3 of them. the rest are made into his followers and never mentioned again... <<less

Don't bother reading this. it's good and interesting at the start but everyone except the MC and his daughter will slowly get killed off by the author.

The antagonist doesn't die and the entire story is about them fighting, getting their friends killed, then stop and run away. 30 chapters of them talking a hike up a mountain, meet again, fight again, get more friends killed. rinse and repeat + powerups.

Everyone also talks about how 'famous' they are, but people still like the antagonist more becus? uhh... they want to forgive... more>> him? in a world where people eat people and so on... yea okay. <<less

I Found A Planet
April 20, 2019
Status: c460
its okay-ish. the MC is short sighted and very nationalistic.

first and foremost- It requires about 380 chapters before the plot starts moving and the aliens come, that is a little too much and most people will not read so far...

also a warning: the novel becomes a xianxia later on.

... more>>

The MC& synoposis

The MC seems to pursue money by bringing back tech from the planet.

he doesn't really bring back the tech as it is however, but forms a company and hires people to do research in the direction of the tech. when the researchers are stuck, he will drop huge hints or just give them the tech and let them build it which is much more realistic than "mansion in post-apoc".

the MC seems to be very nationalistic which is reasonable, but later on they start suppressing him and sometimes you'd wish that he'd just pack up and leave or fight back. the MC of "mansion in post-apoc" is much more realistic and likable in this regard.

regarding romance

the MC tries very hard to build his harem because he believes that he should get one because of he owns the planet. his mother tries very hard to hook him up but does not find successful because he doesn't want to get married.

Spoiler

chapter 150 is when he sleeps with a woman for the first time in the novel, but it's just a fling. later on however, he manages to brainwash the girl into being okay with being his concubine (not mistress) and marries another girl. he also hooks up with another girl...

he has..6 children I think, at chapter 300.

[collapse]

he also becomes very protective of "his" planet and it is confirmed that he is the only human living on the planet.

plot:
plot moves very slowly. in fact I think theres no plot besides him bringing back tech and getting rich....

Spoiler

however around chapter 150 the cause of destruction in the planet is slowly unravels and at 250, he finds proof of the aliens.

[collapse]

only at the end of volume 2, chapter 350ish does the MC focus change and move towards to aliens and then at 380 or so, everything starts moving quickly and the novel starts for real... but it seems like most people will not get that far sadly...

I Have a Mansion in the Post-apocalyptic World is a much better novel in the same genre, but while mansion in post-apoc focuses alot on the zombies, this one focuses on the tech, business and earth alot more. sadly the MC loves his country so much that he's willing to be suppressed by them so the MC sometimes irritates the reader. of course, everything seems to be a part of his mega-plan to fight against the aliens in the end.

overall
as for score, I would give this a 2/5. its not bad and doesn't deserve a 1, but its below average and worth a read if you are interested in how countries react to advance tech and politics.

the novel is in volume 3 right now and I cant decide if it'll get good yet so...2/5

It requires about 380 chapters before the plot starts moving and the aliens come, that is a little too much and most people will not read so far...

about volume 3....

i have no choice but to drop this to 1 star. the more I read the more I feel like I wasted my time.

as mentioned, volume 3 is where the "War" starts but

Spoiler

when the aliens finally attacked, the humans decided to start a "tournament" style "war" every few years instead of just kicking out the invaders.

also the aliens turned out to be humans who moved to a planet where they can cultivate, so it became a xianxia novel and earth is slowly creating it's own "qi". science is also slowly changing and all modern weapons slowly become worthless while cultivators become more and more powerful over time.

the author writes that since the "qi" is weak, it is the best time to kill them all and we already have robot soldiers on earth but nope. earthlings will be joining this tournament every few years while the protoss slowly wait and enslaves us all once the "qi" has recovered.

Pet King

Status: c333
This is the best novel currently. No idea why it isn't popular.

Maybe because there isn't much fighting because it's mainly about how people interact with their pets and their stories.

The first arc is about the MC getting the cheat and how he rebuilds his parents pet shop. One of the few things they left him.

... more>> Second arc is about how the MC struggles with popularity, how the mega companies crush competition.

The third arc is about him rebuilding from ashes.

This story isn't about punches or killing, it's about making you treasure the things around you and making you realize that even animals can be your best friend. <<less

Zhan Long
March 21, 2018
Status: c1
One of the 3 big chinese vrmmo novels.

The first is king's avatar. this one is for you guys who like to read about a protag who demolishes armies alone. he is literally the strongest player and he will wreck thousands of players alone. the fights are good because you already know the MC will never lose. sadly there is no romance. there really isn't anything else to write about this novel because it's just MC destroy your record, MC destroy your guild, MC KS your boss, MC win all competition... more>> and MC win national and world championship.

Second the rebirth of the legendary guardian. this protag dies a few times but after that, he creates a super guild and never ever loses again. he wins every big event and gets a gazillion dollars that he lives in luxury. the fights here are LONG. if you like LONG and descriptive fights, this is for you. but it does boring after a few hundred chapters because at that point, you don't really care about how the MC defeats XXX boss anymore cus he's already defeated so many of them.

The romance here is good at first but it becomes brainless later... he aims for the girl he lost before the time reset but he realizes that he'll always be 2nd in her heart so he gives her up. the best girl, like any modern girl is not okay with a harem but logic is quickly thrown away because he's the MC and he gets all the girls he want.

After 600 chapters or so, you will wonder why you are still reading this novel and you really cant give a reason other than the little cute girl but you will tire out quickly because it's just MC+gang fighting XX boss...

The guild he builds somehow runs itself and he stays billionaire...... even with rules like 'you cannot use the guild chat channel'..... the MC becomes so OP so fast and nothing can be done to fix him. the author himself ended the story because there is nothing that can stop the MC anymore.

Then we have zhan long. this one is the most realistic mmo. the MC dies alot. theres no way he can 1v1000... he has an advantage because his martial arts teacher was the one who designed the combat in the game so no need to cry about his advantage. it's a no brainer that a boxer will get a bigger advantage in a boxing game compared to a muay thai practitioner.. if you can't accept this then you need to grow up.

There is romance but it doesn't develop. it is frustrating. there are other girls who like him but he only focuses on the girl he cant get so no harem.

So far, I like zhan long the most, it isn't ridiculous and we see the MC struggle alot.

Some say there is also 'the world online' and it is a good read so far but there is no RL element because RL becomes the game. his sister is written off as going to a cyber school and never appearing, his girlfriend stays on a mountain in his territory and never comes down to see him too. his friends is shoved into a workshop in his country and he only looks for them when he needs work done. <<less

Almighty Coach

Status: c147
Slashs's review of this novel is very accurate except that the athletes he trains do get stronger/better, however they are given a tiny boost that bumps them up but the athletes will lose this buff once they stop being his students. this probably gave slash the misunderstanding that he doesn't train them and they have no future once they leave his care.

that said, I will reiterate what slash said, that this novel is very disappointing because all the athletes are throw away characters.... more>> they are just there to give the MC achievements and then they will disappear.

the novel also doesn't touch on the training aspect so there is really nothing interesting about this game unless you want to read about the MC who cheats his way up the sports school, then cheat his way to become the best coach of the national sports association.

the MC also rarely contact his family, has no love interest so no romance and has no friends. so yea, none of those in the novel..

just the MC cheating his way up the corporate (?) ladder.... <<less
