6 chapters in and I'm already skimming through..

(and I'm a very patient person!)

The novel started with the MC getting bullied the f*ck out while being forced to bow his head to a shitty young princess and her bit*h ass friends

Hopefully this gets better soon..

Edit: Sadly, it didn't get better but worse,
and "consumable" system wasn't interesting at all.

Do I recommend? And what this novel is really about?

Yes. But there is some suspension of disbelief in special at the start of the novel, as there is a big tone shift after like 3 chapters... more>>
Spoiler

In special how things change from grimdark human experiment and demons that eat people to slight more adult comedy/romance/action story like, by using some book chinese mythology and some wooden toys

[collapse]
. Because it goes from grimdark, to normal isekai fantasy lvl of dangers and comedy pretty quick.

The story is about a dude that got inside a human noble after it was kidnapped to the demon world. And in his weak body he has to bluff his way out of situations, until he can farm enough to become OP. There is more attention to other details, like politics, strategy, tatics, economic development. But because the MC is also growing there is pleanty of action and romance.

Why 4 stars?

Well first was the suspension of disbelief on some of the MC tatics, even if they are somewhat sound.

Then we have the problem that when you make a smart MC you need a Smart world and Villain to make the battle of wits, that sadly doesn't realy happen as there is no Villain that stood out and while they aren't dumb there was never any real threat to the MC plans, on the intelectual level, this also apply to many non-combate plans that the MC had.

And my own personal view on how the harem was handled, as it was more "realistic" than most harem novels and there is alot more characterization than the usual novel, it still wasn't satisfying.

Spoiler

Also the use of the trope of the s*x hallucinogenic drug, that was so forced that I thought if the author was afraid he had only a few chapter left, because there was a buildup of a interesting chemistry there.

[collapse]

However Overall it is a great novel that is above average the usual Isekai trope, the MC is inteligent, is neither boring OP or corwardly weak, the side characters are ok. While the plot is interesting with all the things I like, politics, intrigue and army management. <<less

Highly recommended!

I read this novel translated in my language (Vietnamese), and it was very good. The main character is a good guy who willing to sacrifice for his friend, beloved one and always want to use his power and knowledge to help people.

You will find that most of the time, he escaped from bad situations not by how his skill are broken (well, a bit :3) but by how he knew about his enemies, his plan and the help from others. At first he just want to survive, then he... more>> has his family, make a better world and to protect it, he must be strong. Prepare to put himself at risks, with a well planed thought and for the sake of other, that what I love about him.

The other characters, the relationships, the RPG like world with races, skill, item, jobs, hidden quest,... are very exciting and well developed.

Again, highly recommended! (Sorry for my english skill :P)

Spoiler

He is so badass when he is not himself LOL. And prepare for his harem and romance, after all, he is "Devil's son-in-law"

Spoiler

I've completed this novel and rewritten the whole review, my personal bias may affect the review so it might not attend to needs of everyone. Please, bear with it!

I can divide this novel into 2 big arcs, 1st one being demon world arc - where MC helps Sia gain the throne, 2nd being whole world arc - where MC adventures into other worlds and discover their possibilities. This divide happens somewhere around 600th chapter.

I would have given this novel

3 stars for the first big arc. But 1 star for the second big arc. Overall I would give this novel a 2.

DIFFERENCE? 1st big arc is more focused on politics, business and romantic aspect. 2nd big arc directly forego politics, business aspect,

it's selling points. It becomes a repeat of plot armor and lucky events, to the point it feels reading the first big arc was very useless.

Overall review:

Good points -

  • Politics -
    This novel did a very good job in political aspect in the first arc so I will consider this to be a good point in this novel, even though its foregone in second arc I will still consider this to be good.
  • Strategies -
    In first arc MC was weak, so he used various military strategies in order to win war, the war which happens for Sia to take over the throne was very exciting. Also political issues which comes after taking over the throne were good. A war which comes after a war also was a nice addition.
  • Plot -
    This novel uses a cliche plot but that doesn't make it bad, its very good just not very different. At least till first big arc I will take plot to be very good. After second big arc it turns into a bad point since everywhere there is a plot armor.

Bad points -

  • MC -
    Like usual chinese mc's his personality is a sucker. Well he admits without luck he isn't omnipotent but even so it doesnt make its taste good. He is a hypocrite, like he knows that a girl likes he will still rather not accept their love when he already had accepted love of over half a dozen females already. Most women would have to turn into half dead in order to prove their love for MC before he will be able to admit it that they love him and he loves them. Take Isabella for example, she turns half dead 2 times because mc's incompetence before he was able to admit that she likes him. He is very afraid of cracks in crystal harem and without his first wife ATHENA he won't able to manage his harem in a world where harem is ever pervasive. It just feels to dull and gives sour vibes. He relies heavily on luck, like literally everything he does is based on luck factor without it, he can't a single thing. Like love of female he keeps denying negative part of himself which pushes over 100 chapters making it give a feel of filler chapters which is really annoying. He couldn't come up with terms with past of the body he took over for like 700 chapters. I mean seriously if you take over a body you at least have to repay him with getting rid of his regrets right? But he just kept running away from all that like a coward.
  • Harem -
    This might be me looking too much into it and might be my personal bias but as I talked about in mc's personality, he just keeps denying women, in end he's supposed to have like 11 women but besides 6-7 he's running away from the rest. Some women like Belina who he fooled didnt get chance to be MC and show her love for MC and are literally forgotten. To me this harem isn't really a good one. It is heavily based upon benefits. How much benefits MC gives them and they fall for him...... I really can't bring myself to call this love. I don't even know how and when MC fall in love with Sia he did so much for her and she just keeps ordering him in return... Also keeps pushing his sister over him. I mean come on giving your sister happiness isnt duty of MC. He might like her as a lil sis but its not his respobility for him to do her husband and yet she keeps forcing MC to accept her. It took 1k chapter for Sia's lil sis from 1st ch to 1k chapter to get promise from MC. And waiting for like 5 years before she got promise from him.... I can accept that girl is in love with MC truly in love but mc's just running away like a coward instead of giving a clear answer.
  • Ending -
    To be honest, last 100 chapters were literally, I don't know what to say, really bad? Last fight with last boss that is Spiritual God was on 1200th chapter that is last chapter. It ended within half chapter with MC making a lucky break through. I don't even know how and why but it ended it was really disappointing ending. It's like doing anything and everything MC did till now was a waste. MC just realised that he was a creator and realised his powers just that in last chapter he realised just that and killed last boss. If he realized this in first chapter he could have ended then and there... It was really disappointing.
  • Romance -
    Athena he calls her his first love and he loves her the most yes I can accept it but after like 300 chapters her appearances and screen times are really less she disappears for like 100 chapter and talks like 1 chapter and disappears again. Most Female harem members suffer through same problem in later half of series. Interactions between them just keep getting fewer and fewer. One of his wife came in second half, Tiffany, her total screentime, might not even be more than 2 whole chapters, I mean the amount she talked can be covered within 6k words! So freaking less. Is this even a romance?

Overall -

This is a good novel in the first big half but second big half is totally meaningless and no fun to read at all. It's mostly about him getting harem and plot armor. It gets boring. Just read first arc is fun and quite good but whole series is definitely not worth it.

I had high hopes for this novel.

At the start of this novel, there were things which were amazing. As the MC was weak he used his brain and wits to overcome his foes. He scheme against them and then make them fight each other.

The MC got a system which is good, if not the best. It is your usual training grounds and exchange center where he can exchange potions.

The romance and the side character development is good and we get to see him spending time with his harem members, some... more>> sweet moments where you will go like awww..

But that is all.

Now lets come to things that are wrong in this novel.

With a scheming MC you would think that he may outsmart his enemies, but every time he is in grave danger, he is saved by the fuking plot armor. EVERY SINGLE DAMN TIME.

He picks fight against opponents that are way higher in cultivation than him for no reason at all.
Instead of cultivating quietly and becoming strong, he goes out and tries to fight people 2-3 realm higher than him. And just when he is about to die, BAM someone comes and save him.

When I read a system novel, I want the MC to become OP as fuk. If he is still stuck in lower realm even after op system and someone needs to save his ass every time, then it becomes a generic novel. I might as well read other novels instead of a system novel if I want to see the MC stuck in the same realm for too long.

If you read system novels, you will know that the MC there becomes OP pretty soon, like strongest system.

But in this novel, MC is always an underdog, surviving on the mercy of his enemies. You never feels like he is someone strong enough to control his own destiny.

This leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Although I like harem, I only like when its done properly. Where every character has its own personality and isn't forgotten after banging once.

Even though I loved this novel at start, it soon became apparent that the novel wont be any good., <<less

Note: I have only read a total of 250 chapters, so I won't make my review too unsubstantial.

Although 250 chapters are not enough to assess but it's just enough to express my opinion about this novel.

Highly Recommended!

I personally think this novel is the only one in the Xuanhuan genre that deserves a good amount of readers' attention. This is the perfect example of how a casual cultivation novel should be.
    • Story: The start of the novel is quite slow and I have to say that the plot later surprised me. Although, it was expected but the unique elements in the novel made it interesting.
    • Cultivation System & Skills: The main reason for its greatness is the OPness of the MC's unique 'Cultivation System' (as in Japanese's isekai novels). This system is really well made for a Chinese novel. The skills that get unlocked with every jump in star level are well constructed. And the Author is making sure that the skills and the story shouldn't get unsynchronized. The old skills are not getting forgotten as the story is progressed (mostly old skills in other novels are just replaced with the new skills but not in this one).
    • Action: After reading the story, I don't think that action is the stronghold of this novel. It is not bad in any sense but if I have to say then 'schemes' will be my answer straight and simple.
    • Romance: The relationships between MC and the harem (Athena is the harem queen) is really well made. It is naturally built over time, not rushed like most novels. The misunderstandings in this regard are quite hilarious.
The main issue of this novel is the translations' frequency. I know that it may be due to translators having not so many sponsors but this novel doesn't deserve this. It must be given to famous translation websites like Wuxiaworld (or the original translator can work for them) as they have a significant amount of sponsors.

One last thing I would like to say is that the story gets good over time. Those who are new to novels can read this story as the elements introduced are not much complicated. So, take the time to read it.

Highly recommended too since I also read it all in Vietnamese and it is one of the best web Chinese novel I have ever read and the first one that I re-read more than 3 time. 3 thing I like about this:

-The heroins are while not 100% individualistic, all have their own unique trait that make them differ from each other. They also only fall after the MC go through great length to open their heart and resolve their problem, not just fall for him after he shows off his... more>> strength and resourcefulness.

-The MC accepts the dark part of both humanity and himself, smart but not omnipotent (in the sense that there is other people out there that can outsmart him, not that the world is all s*upid except himself), know when to fight and is decisive but also know when to hold back and forgive.

-The world isn't all just good or evil, most of them is just matcher (do something for them and they will return the favor, harm them and they will give you hell). There is no racist (all race is equal as long as they prove their worth), no sexist (woman can be even smarter and stronger than men), no real world hatred mixed in (Other country is XXX, YYY). Even some antagonists are people worthy of respect if you read the whole story.

To skyleven7 (sorry I tried searching for a discussion page but didn't find one so I will post it here. I post it because I really consider your opinion and the novel is one of the few chinese web novel I like, not that I hate you) :

-Harem: He loves Athena the most because she loved him while he was still weak and once sacrificed her life for him (other loves him after he saved them which is great but I think love is more like both side receive something from each other, not one side give and other side take). She is also the one with highest wife power IMO. She is seen weak later on but it is because of her race and age so you really can't expect her to grow at the same pace as our MC. Just think of it like cheap weapon that helps you early game, it may become weak later but without it, you will be dead early game so you can't call it useless. She helps him in his early stage which is more than enough. It is also impossible to make true love in harem story since true love = longing for 1 person only.

-MC: He is opportunistic but it is simply because if he isn't, he should be dead. And he is only an otaku that maybe a little smarter and more independent than normal people, not some absolute genius that can predict the future. Asking him to create the flow is just setting the bar too high. Being able to catch the opportunity is already good enough since most people can't even do so.

-System: Yeah, it is but that is pretty normal since the setting in the beginning is just too hard (drop to demon world without family or friend). The good thing is that you will see that in later chapter that while MC is strong, he is only able to defeat the true boss by combing his and other people strength, not 1 man army.

-His power level is different than other since other is more game like: increase level -> new title-> new power. While he is more like state changing like Xinxia: Body-> mind-> understanding one self -> Understand the world ->Control the world.....

I don't deny what you say since different people different mind. I only want to give my opinion which may clear some of your doubt.

This is one of those stories that is a precious gem, that surprises you with an very interesting world and story. There are so obvious troupes, but they only help create an interesting character base of interactions. Would recommend. (Based on raw).

After finishing up until to the latest translation, I found the answer for this web novel, reading this WN Is equivalent to nothing, what do I mean nothing?

Okay here’s the thing.

First If you are looking for action, then this novel Is not for you why?

... more>> The writer create a so-called ”System” turns to ’Super weak system’ why did I name it super weak system?

No matter how hard the MC grind his ass to death by using this so-called ”System” he was still weak as f*ck, even mob from the story was above the MC, he couldn’t even win without being half-dead or nearly died moment, Only means, no matter how strong the MC became on the surface, Inside the writers brain cuz he is so dumb as hell, was still weak even mob character can wimp MC ASS.

Romance, Is you are here for the sake of romance please find another WN, this guy never knew romance at all, same goes to the creator of the wn.

MC is a super-beta MC that you can find In any JP novel, well In this story It was a combination of Super Beta JP MC+ Super Generic CN MC = MC of this shitte WN.

Harem hasn’t started at yet here at c-180 but some say It turns from disgusting to worst. Basically 90% of common CN wn problem will be putted inside the story... Can you Image that...

That’s all I could say from the Ch 1 up until to Ch 180. <<less

Spoiler

The Harem did not disappoint! I feel as of Harems are controversial but I like it because it is a fantasy. Every girl is treated right, and Chen rui doesn’t leave anyone behind. When Blanche died I was a little upset, but she revives in Star Tenple!!

Actually a good read thus far. If you enjoy fighting + slight politics + harem that makes sense (rather than girls giving themselves for free), this will be a good pick.

The story started off with some tension where MC is in a fragile and dangerous state. Also, I love how the description of the story goes. It isn't boring at all. Rather than just the word beautiful, there is much more visual info to it. Even though it isn't really that Grammarly sophisticated, it is a smooth read.

One point that... more>> bothers me is that if the Author doesn't paragraph it slightly discontinuous in certain scenes, it is easier to imagine the story flow. <<less

Good read

System

A galactic/stellar type of system with 7 levels.

... more>> Influence building

First half of novel is basically influence building in demon world. (I.e he helps princess Sia to become empress, helps 3 empires in forming alliance and stuff)

Use of knowledge from past world

Its a little like miracle throne.

Later he creates game machine to gather faith.

Harem

decent harem but many good candidates were not acknowledged as harem member (that was a let down)

Characters

Great characterisation for some characters Characters with own opinions and objectives (I liked Catherine)

First half of novel was enjoyable but second half (human world) was little boring and ending seemed rushed.

But overall it was nice. <<less

Good stuff! 5 stars because currently, the novel should have a better score according to NU standart

All in all, this novel is classic, a lot of tropes are being used, like many other novels, but it's used well here!

-MC have a system but it's not omnipotent, it helps MC train efficiently and guide him in the right path but it won't just give stuff to MC. It's also a silent system, no annoying system administrator that keeps talking and sucking MC's dick.

-There is a harem, but the execution of it... more>> is rather well done. It's not perfect, but so far each girl have their own personnalities and didn't fall for MC just by looking at him, which make this novel far superior than 99% harem novel. But, I still keep a healthy amount of doubts, because a lot of novel at the start have a good harem only to have girls in it turning very bland later on.

One thing that I appreciate about the novel is that MC's friends have actual use and might even be stronger than him, they also have their own life besides MC, and surprise surprise, turnout that not every girl want MC's dick, leaving some women to mc's friends, unlike many harem novels.

Now, I have one thing that I really don't like about this novel, it's the fillers. They are way too many of them. MC goes to do one thing, but bam, midway you'll get an arc of 10-15 chapters. It might not be a problem to some people, but to me, when I'm looking forward to MC reuniting with some people but then get one of those arc happening, it just piss me off.

And one other thing, but it's not that bad, is I don't like reincarnation that hijack someone else body, it never bring anything interessing except some cringy drama already seen a thousand times. <<less

Its funny how there are some novels that have in name scheming, plotting or deceit while this novel has name as some romance or slice of life sh-t but is more about mentioned points than any other novels cause MC here is cautious and clever. Without beign the so called "low-profile" he hides himself deeper than MCs of all novels I have ever read (more than 100 for sure) so this novel is quite underrated or just unknown

This book is about a Chinese otaku that gets transmigrated into another human body that is in the demon realm and is being used as a guinea pig for a poison that a potioneer is testing on. Then the book shows how the MC uses tricks, lies, and people so that he will not die a pathetic death. From then on it, the book shows us the path the MC is taking so that he can create his own destiny.

I think this was a really good book to read, at... more>> the beginning of the book I thought it was going in the direction of slice of life-based off the encounters and situations the MC gets into. But around c60 or somewhere there the book starts to get a lot more serious, and the MC is trying to get stronger.

Honestly, I like this book a lot for its' direction that the romance takes and also the cunning tricks that the MC uses to get through tough situations. Basically it is about the MC struggling to be able to protect himself and loved ones, and some other side stories here and there.

I highly recommend trying to read the first 100 chapters before criticizing it (like some other reviewers) and if it isn't your type of book then it's not.

P.S.

First time writing an actual review, I just thought this book was underrated and needed some love. <<less

Every once in a while a rare novel appears that goes beyond all expectations. Devil's Son in Law is one of those novels. From the very start, it draws you into the magical Demon Realm, bustling with well-developed characters and settings, with many elements from isekai, xuanhuan, and classical Eastern and Western literature blended in. Whether it is Greek Mythology, the Journey to the West, One Piece Devil Fruits, vampires or zombies, this novel has it all. Even the side characters' relationships are deeply developed making for a 3D story... more>> that is entertaining through hundreds of enjoyable chapters.

The MC is one of the most clever and original ones out there, outwitting his opponents again and again with his Super System and camouflage superpowers. The romance is excellent, there when you need it, and given from the start. The romance scenes are written out in full and are very erotic, edgy, and ecchi, which is exactly what I wanted out of such a novel.

But one of things I love most about the novel is the level of detail on conversations between characters as well as thought processes. Dialogue is surprisingly realistic, and the tactical calculations are very well thought out, like when Charles makes a business deal with Josh and Obsidian, or when the MC disguises himself as various characters to uproot Leia Town or the Custer Family. These were epic genius moments that attest to how OP the MC gets over the course of the novel.

Details on the character development is top notch too. Each character has their own story, whether it is the heart-throbbing romance between Royce and Vasasha, the touching story of Kia and Freya, or even the tragic story of Naliyi and Kander Carsely.

I have recently gotten to the part when Catherine has the MC's daughter Duoduo, and I am impressed by how much her character has developed from when she went under the alias Christina and had a "special moment" in the tent at Silent Night to when they meet again at the Dark Shadow Empire and Crystal Valley to when they finally take their romance further and have a phoenix child. These kinds of arcs of characters gradually opening up and revealing their true passion and strength are one of the great features of this classic story, and I cannot wait to finish it.

The influence of Devil's Son in Law runs deep in xuanhuan novels. Written 10 years ago, the fact that people keep returning to this epic classic attests to its enduring influence. For me, Devil's Son in Law will always be one of the top 3 most important and influential xuanhuan novels I have read in my life. <<less

The scenarios are playing like an elementary skit. It is amusing, somewhat interesting. But the targeted audience is too low for me to fully enjoy the novel.

The translation are kinda iffy. It's just a few words that I'm having doubt about if it's that what it really is. If its accurate then that's just how low the skill of the author in creating the setting. Tell me, how can you suplex a centaur?

I liked the moments when he disguised himself as Richard whenever he found himself in a new unfamiliar situation, like when he met Christina at Silent Night Wetland or Zola at Rainbow Valley.

I am currently reading the English translation by Steambun. The translation is very good overall, using rich and varied vocab and very descriptive and thorough with the details, but has some typos every now and then. However, the Steambun translation is still much better and more exciting to read than machine translated sites like LNMTL.

So English translation would... more>> be 4.5/5, but the story itself fully deserves 6/5.

Devil's son in law is a very interesting and unique novel that I enjoyed reading. It's one of the best I read all year. <<less

This was actually a good read.. Although I think many will complain about the MC but personally I like the MC since although he's somewhat of a hypocrite at times it also shows the he is still human & not some super perfect MC that can accept all & do all.

Regarding the harem & romance, there are pros & cons well if you've read a lot of CN novels it's the usual problems like the early harem members can't level up as fast as MC so there they usually get... more>> left behind, well at least the MC is loyal (?) enough to come back to main heroine every time he finishes his work.

The story really won't bore you until around 1000+ chapters as around nearing the end it felt kind of rushed or forced maybe the transition was just not good, although it went downhill in my opinion it's just 4.5 going down to 3.5 not much, I don't remember what chapter it started but it was when

gate between human world & demon world opened

after that the pacing was destroyed.

As for the luck of MC, well his cheat is a system, do you even need an explanation for him being OP? Well its not like it was always smooth sailing for MC even with his system with the virus 'Asura' coming into his system, limit on usage on most of his skills (only until Devil Emperor?), always having task that have a time limit, etc.

Of course I won't deny some bad parts as well like forgotten plot, less screen time for early characters, rushed ending, MC's super luck (well is there any CN reincarnated novels where MC doesn't have god-blessed luck?).

Well overall this is still a good read, at least enough to not quit halfway through the story. <<less

World building is not bad but MC has very strong plot armor. Never ever struggled for anything and even he is ex otaku he knew military tactics science etc. I dont recommend to who want original story in other words MCs life is eaisest mode no struggle, one word fall womens and goals

5-star: So far, it's really good. Characters will good development along the plot and good development in the MC strength or cultivation or evolution, the romance is slow-burn for some characters like Athena. The only thing I hope is MC Strength progress is even faster.

4-star: It's getting boring with all the other stuff. There are a lot of story fillers which include politics and all. I skip a lot of chapters cause of them
