A really good novel.
Lots of Unique deviations from the typical stories.

The first few chapters are a bit lacking in world building, not explaining cultivation/108 maidens. But then the story becomes much better.
- Good Action
- Puzzles solving
- Good Intelligent characters, with lots of conflict and power struggles.
- An actual plot rather than just getting stronger to fight the next young master, or OP + Slave Harem from the start.

So this is similar, without the mindless fan service, to Queen's Blade.
Take Queen's Blade:
- get rid... more>> of the crummy dialogue, replace it with mystery & real adventures.
- get rid of dumb busty bimbos with devious and intelligent women
- drop pointless fan service for good quality action <<less

Initial impressions as of ch5. Rated 3.5, rounded up to 4.

Based on the Chinese classic The Water Margin (aka Outlaws of the Marsh / All Men Are Brothers), other readers would probably recognize the 108 Stars of Destiny from the Suikoden video game series (very loosely).

The MC is an elite Chinese fighter pilot who would probably be shot by the authorities after crashing his new jet. Instead, he found himself parachuting into an unknown land and found a girl who had fainted by a river. Immediately plunging to perform CPR,... more>> he too fainted. The moment he woke up, he found himself being threatened at spear point by the girl, who introduced herself as Lin Chong the Panther Head; which is the name of one of the 108 legendary heroes of The Water Margin. But this Lin Chong is a pretty girl...

As a fan of The Water Margin, I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. As another reviewer noted, it seems to be like Sekirei where powerful figures are contracted in a master-servant relationship. The genderbent aspect reminds me of Koihime Musou (a h-game series) and the manga Ikkitousen where the characters of Romance of the Three Kingdoms (another Chinese classical novel) are women but retained their original names.

A reader might get confused by the numerous terms and names. For example, in ch3 it is revealed that “Lin Chong the Panther Head” is just a formal title and she has a name of her own: Lin Ying Mei. A reader would have to keep multiple names in mind and I shudder to think how it would go when more characters are introduced (there are 108 stars according to the original after all).

The translation is done with care and each chapter is of decent length. Combat is described as flashy and magical with ridiculous sounding names.

Interesting, will continue to read. <<less

Take Sekirei, mix it with a Chinese novel.

You got 108 maidens of destiny.

Its a good light novel. No face, no revenge, for now its a trip to get stronger to survive. Coming accross various other Sekirei. For now the MC got only 2 contracted sekirei, but I'm pretty sure he will get 2 new pretty soon.

Oh, its also lightly erotic and you got a lot of young girl blushing.

I don't get people who rated this 5 stars at all! Really if all you need is reincarnation and instant girl your easy please.

This novel is lacking so much... There isn't nearly enough motives, toughs, preparation, descriptions of things etc etc. Basically something happens -> hes in another world -> gets a girl -> gets in fight etc. Basically nothing happens in between, conversations about situation and things like that.

Including massive amount of web and fan novels I have read this is one of the worst. Definitely worst I... more>> have read from novel updates.

The story started out good but turned very confusing in the middle and end part.

Pros

1 MC stays in character and acts like a soldier. Although he does have a very bad hero complex.

... more>> 2 The plot is different from the usual XX novels and has a definite goal.

3 Characters specially the girls are nicely defined although they are tuned to the usual generic traits. Like being ice cold or tsundere etc.

Cons

1 NAMES- My biggest headache are the names. There are too many names to remember. Not to mention the 108 maidens with 2 names each. There are also many sects, artifacts and items having long and ridiculous names.

2 Tangled warfare- Towards the middle it almost becomes like a tournament where many characters are fighting each other at different places. With so many names, the fighting scenes becomes like a 'transformers' fight where you dont even know who the hell is fighting who. It is very confusing and becomes boring to read. Also these warfare stretch out for 50-100 chapters each giving me a headache.

3 Artifacts- MC had too many items which all work like plot armor devices to get him out of bad situations. Moreover with their ridiculous names it becomes difficult to remember them thus all fight scenes of MC becomes very boring to read except the starting battles.

Overall I would advice to read with the translations and not read the mtl to spare yourself a headache. It is entertaining but the dialogues and plot starts becoming a bit repetitive. <<less

As of this review, it’s base off Chapter 5.

It is a bit similar to The Familiar of Zero, but with much more action and the familiar is girls only (?)

My impression so far is that it is a good read for harem lover like me. Also good for those that do not like wimpy MC because this MC have gut and is not a pu**y.

Started out pretty fun, with a bit of humour, plentiful action with the MC showing lots of guts and some hints of potential romance. Gradually turned into a harem, but that was still fine. It was clear who the main girls were, and they still received plenty of screen time. On the downside, the MC started becoming cocky and started jumping into battles he shouldn't win, but cleared them with lucky breaks. By the (chapter) 200s, his cockiness started turning into arrogance and over-confidence - he even starts to look... more>> down on superior opponents. His lucky breaks turned into outright deus ex machina. His harem turned into pokemon collecting, with even the original main girls losing screen time. <<less

It's not really bad as others might say it all depends on what you are looking or expecting for in this novel.

For example like me the instant I saw the Harem tag I gave up all hope for a good romance. So far I've only read 1 novel I like with harem and its JP. CN harem though not as bad as other JP harem is still somewhat unrealistic or just plain impossible so don't expect any great romance.

When I started reading it what really caught my attention is the... more>> Star Duels and the process of the MC from zero to hero. Also all the training part of the MC is done with a time skip which is better rather than spending countless chapters just to say how hard or how powerful the cultivation technique of the MC.

The personality of the MC is also good he is not overly arrogant or greedy, he may sometimes look like a playboy due to his current harem members but all I could say so what? If there is no "action" on the part of the MC I would be more surprised as it is always portrayed that the Star Generals are countless beauties.

My final score is actually 4 but I'd give it a 5 just to show that it maybe cliche to some but it is called cliche because it is proven to be good or a standard. <<less

This novel is fairly interesting. It makes me think of a Chinese version of 'campione' or, others may say, 'sekirei'. The MC is fairly competent in getting to grounds with his situation and his first companion is pretty cool. That is not, however, saying that the novel is perfect. The world-building so far has been poor and the character development is sub-par to some novels (though, it's better than 'You hit me so I'll murder your entire family' characterization at the moment This may change.) ... more>>

It's not a 'great' read, but if it's certainly good. So it's better than just a novel to waste time. <<less

I'm just gonna make it simple. If you're okay with a harem, then you'll like this. It's not groundbreaking but, the MC doesn't only think with his lower half, which is already a plus compared to a lot of the novels on here, let alone harems. The opposite being a total beta and is essentially afraid of women. This guy is in the middle, which I consider normal. It's definitely pleasing to see all of their interactions and growth together.

Which brings me to the action, and cultivation aspect. It's 'decent.'... more>> Nothing that really stands out other than the fact he literally needs the girls to get stronger, which is pretty nice to see that the women in these harems have a use other than being part of the peanut gallery. He's still sadly one of those characters that are "intelligent" because the author says so. But it's manageable. So far he hasn't done something completely left field and made you want to punch a baby (it's just a joke). It's a relatively interesting Xuanhuan novel. He has his plot armor, but it's not completely thrown in your face, he'll for sure struggle and some of the fights are decently written.

So personally, for a hardcore harem, this is actually pretty good. Has decent plot for this kind of novel, not a lot but some small character development, he isn't a petty douchbag that fights every guy that looks at him weirdly, actually treats the women decently, (again, for a xuanhuan) and is a pretty decent MC. That being said, I don't think it's worth anything more than a four-star. I'd actually rate it a 3.5. <<less

The Description of the this novel was poorly done, because it throws a lot of readers off. You would think that it is the typical Xuanhuan novel. What would happen when elite pilot Shu Jing test flight one of the new jet models but something went wrong and he mysteriously (did someone bring him there?) find himself with his gun in a different world name Liangshan Continent, a genius is defined as a Star Master who is capable of signing the Star Duel Covenant contract with two Star Maidens. This... more>> was truly the limit.

This MC uses his air pilot training which he has fast reflexes, good eye sight, well power, never give up and fearless even in life and death battles. I'm on chapter 22 and the MC motive so far is that he wants to be number one and get his wish granted to get home. Motives changes; the MC has been in that world for under 2 months. <<less

This story is good along the way and bad at the ending. If I have to rate it seperately then along the way will be 4, and at the ending will be 2-3.

Spoiler

Pro

    1. Romance done quite good.
    1. Fighting scene also well done. It has the feeling of struggle even though you know that he will win in the end.
    2. MC personality is to my liking compare to other chinese novel I've read so far. He doesn't have this 'You've offened me, so I'll kill your entire sect/clan' I think toward an ending he didn't even kill 100 people. His target is mostly old monster of a sect that he have enmity with.

Con

    1. Romance isn't well balance. There are a lot of other character that I want to see their romantic moment, but it doesn't have it. I mean he have a reason though. With star general that lose their chastity will have a huge disadvantages to them, so he didn't lay his hand on them. However just kissing and other stuff would be fine. The doctor star general she has a scene with him in chapter 120 or so, and in 600 chapter till the end she doesn't have a moment with him again. This also applied to thief, water and other star generals.
    1. I skip to read several chapter before ending. I'm not sure I get the whole point or not, but it seem the last boss is also a star general of a supreme empress. She just don't want to have MC finish start battle and complete her empress desire because he is a man and starmaster. If you use this prejudice along the way with various enemy it's fine, but using it as an ending I think it's quite lacking.

With that kind of ending I lose motivation to finish the whole thing.

As others said, it's Sekirei with a better MC in a Xuanhuan setting. I recommend it.

Pro

  • MC is a good dude, with a moral compass. He's also strong willed but not arrogant. So neither a lecherous unbearable MC nor an apathetic blob.
  • The harem is interesting, and all the harem characters manage to stand out in their own way.
  • The world is intriguing.
  • The translation is good.
Con

  • The technical infodumps are bad, with many really long flashy names all over the place. It's honestly impossible to remember everything. It could be way better with a codex recording the terms somewhere. Though, from what I read, the magic system is completely random, with each and every new flashy move better than the one before. I largely prefer a setting set in stone with a complete system instead of that.
  • Too many named characters everywhere. And they have sometime two or even three names!

It's been said before and I will also reiterate, it's Sekirei with a Chinese twist along with some Zelda like mini dungeon puzzles. The novel in itself is quite good, but those who dislike harem will definitely dislike this. If you aren't sure whether you will like it or not and haven't read Sekirei, go read the first 20 chapters of the manga or watch the anime to decide, this is extremely similar.

I would give it 5 stars as it is innovative and something outside the standard template with a... more>> more down to earth and liable MC, but a few points push the wrong buttons for me. I'll keep it in a spoiler just in case.

Spoiler

After he comes to this new world, he suddenly becomes a cultivator without prior knowledge or anything, yet has a strong grasp over it. This is kind of like a middle aged dad going into war for 2 days before becoming a weapons expert on the level of special forces.

The second issue is ammunition, he seems to have an unlimited supply of it. Despite being a pilot test flying a new plane and crashing into another world, he somehow has an enormous amount of bullets. I was getting the impression his gun was hacked to have unlimited ammo until it was mentioned he was all but out just as he finds a gunpowder substitute.

[collapse]

My third and final issue is with the mc's intelligence. He is a smart MC, but everyone is saying he is smarter than what he is. It's overrated to be honest, the author only went halfway with a highly intelligent MC trope and played it safe, but it is more the fact that everyone else is stupid. The MC has only shown intelligence with solving a couple riddles and that's about it. At least he does not make me want to rage, unlike the smart MC trope that is puffed up to be a genius yet trips in every pothole in the road like our friend from Absolute Choice.

even collectively, these three issues did not make me angry at all, just a little confused and lost at points, so I will only deduct 1 star from a full score. <<less

This defies all Clichè's. The MC is decisive and not dense. I love the plot and planning the Author had putted into this. The Main Heroine is always prioritize.

There are things I hate about this story... Its the Romance! The beginning was amazing and hilarious since Lin Chong whose proud has a hard time dealing with MC and have adventures together. I instantly fell in love with this Character. However this only last for a few chapters...! Its really rush before we can enjoy their moments together. She becomes a... more>> background character who easily fell in love... So its really disappointing.

Don't get me wrong I don't dislike the Girls but I really hate the Romance. Read my spoilers.

Spoiler

Immortal Princess was a girl born with a golden spoon, she's super arrogant and prideful. She loves but hates the MC. It makes me mad because she only accepts till he's acknowledge by important figures and defeated her... This rich girl deserves to get slap.

[collapse]

I really love Lin Chong character as it resonates with the MC. She's a warrior and has hard time expressing her feelings. Its really cute. So when it's rushed like that, its ruined... <<less

The start brings you right into the action with nice slaughter, showing you that the pace will be quick and fun. The characters seam to be fun and the MC adapts to the new world fast.

In all it look like it will be a great series. :)

If you ask me what story this one similar to then the answer is Sekirei!

For me, the story is good enough character are ok and while harem is pretty much mirror sekirei in someway, the MC is much more badass than Minato by a huge margin as he processes a perfect fusion of the Modern Human Mind set and Xianxia cultivation mentality.

It’s pretty much an Isekai story without spineless protagonist! For someone who don’t care about useless details and just want to read non spineless isekai harem, this story is... more>> pretty much for us. <<less

If you have not read a lot of web novels then this may be an OK story for you. Otherwise just skip it. The logic is stretched in places, a lot of places, the characters are shallow, the story is rather slow, ect. The romance is not endearing, or heartfelt. I was really disappointed with the story.

Its not bad, actually. The MC isn't a complete pervert and he's actually very hardworking. Instead of "MC and the Girls, " its more like "MC with the Girls."

Its not all instant attraction. Relationships progress and you get to see both the girls and MC grow along their journey.
