Death Progress Bar


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Shi Jin read a book that was supposed to be a satisfying story about revenge.

The main character of this book, also called Shi Jin, was the sixth son of his harem-novel-protagonist-like father. All was fine while his father was alive, but after his death, Shi Jin’s five older half-brothers stopped doting on him and began to torment him, which led to his death. Then the protagonist was reborn, with determination to take revenge on his brothers, and after that… the novel was discontinued.

Shi Jin had almost spat out blood and angrily dropped the book into the shredding machine. A day later, he died in a car accident yet survived somehow, transmigrating into the body of a teenager, also called Shi Jin.

There was only one problem. His father just died, and his brothers were about to begin tormenting him…

Shi Jin: My goal is to eliminate my brothers’ hatred and keep my life!

So far, this is a very interesting alternate universe/survival/suspense/action/mystery series. The MC watches the progress in the death bars to watch for signs of impending death and uses this information to warm him that something dangerous is about to occur. Even though I'm only eight chapters in, there are plenty of two-faced characters to keep my attention and raise the suspense. I like the hard-working MC, and all of the other characters have their own depth as well. I'm looking forward to how the plot plays out.

So you read the description and thought, "another typical novel about transmigration and system blah blah blah", yeah? You couldn't be more wrong. I would describe it as a cross between "One Useless Rebirth" (by the same author) for the overall tone and "The Scum Shou's Survival Guide" for the emotional rollercoaster.

Our MC, a former policeman, transmigrated into a world inside a book he read, getting bound to a system and gaining something called "the death progress bars" - one belonging to him, another to an unknown person, both... more>> almost filled up. He has to empty them in order to survive. How? By somehow eliminating all things that endanger him. After some twists and turns, he ends up as a member of a "legal" criminal organization. Its boss wants it to wash clean of all dirty business and the MC decides to help him. But none of those things will be quite as easy as the other transmigration novels accustomed us to.

Good points? First of all, both the protagonist and the ML are believable, there's no insta-love and after they finally got together I could actually see their relationship working out in real life. Secondly, MC's system aka 'the golden finger' isn't all-knowing and overpowered, but also isn't useless. Thirdly, the secondary characters - they actually exist, are clearly distinguishable and are quite an important part of the story.

Lastly, the story: it's neither too fast nor too slow and balances between drama, a slice of life, romance and action. And it does this wonderfully - I finished the novel in two days and was never bored. Even when I thought I knew the way the plot will go, I was often surprised (have I mentioned there are no easy solutions here?)

All in all, give it a try, it's definitely worth it. <<less
