This is plain infuriating. For some reason, he suddenly becomes mute only at important moments. This has happened twice in the last 20 chapters I've read.

First when Athena sacrificed herself to fight the Earth Emperor or whatever and second when MC was caught by Shea with the Beelzebub family mask on his face. For the mask scene, he simply could've showed the ring Shea gave to buy some time to explain, yet he chose to hide it 'cause he was afraid of being found out even when he intended to explain himself in the first place. Like what? What use is there in hiding his Aguile identity from Shea anyway. It just doesn't make any sense, and there doesn't seem to be any benefit. He even discovered Shea's feelings for him so he already knows that he at least wouldn't get obliterated outright.


Athena's power ups seem very forced as well.

The MC has an OP system ffs, but somehow this 19-year-old girl is able to keep up and even surpass his cultivation. I skimmed through a couple chapters and apparently she's on track to become a Great Demon King all of a sudden 'cause of some bloodline thing that came out of nowhere. MC doesn't feel all that special at all, despite his absurdly OP system. It just feels like the author is pushing this underdog narrative too hard. I mean, how convenient is it that a teenage Great Demon is able to advance realm after realm just by consuming some items.


For people that get turned off by dumb sh*t easily, I'd recommend skipping this to avoid some stress.

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.

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)


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"

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

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).

Hoping for a good English TL.

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

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


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.


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


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

Pretty good with the scheming/politics/relationship building, but the tendency of this author to focus the MC's powerups around hot-blooded edge-of-the-seat breakthroughs at last possible moment under plot armor protection is just sickeningly cringy. All the rest of this novel's first big arc is a good read with plotting and planning, so why add so many of these annoying, cliche developments, as though to spit on all the previously intricate plotline? Only drama for drama's sake. They're all just so low-level and contrived, practically forced to happen via deus/diabolus ex machina... more>> and the pure contrast from the rest invokes a feeling close to abhorrence or disgust in the reader.

It's made even worse by the not-good not-horrible english translation. If it was closer to mtl quality, the reader can just turn off their brain and speedread through. If it were better quality, there'd be no complaints. But this translation, it's a mix of okay quality, awkward phrasing and outright grammar issues. Right when you get used to an 'acceptable' quality, you get randomly slapped with a string of unpleasant grammar errors, just so you don't forget errors are a thing. It's like a mountain range with peaks and valleys, never flat enough to let you adapt.

Edit: I have now dropped this novel. I just can't take this ungodly bad plot anymore. Drama is fine, but at least let it come from less-contrived sources and don't make it so absurdly uncomfortable to read. Breaking point for me was when

some random enemy MC killed pulled a random artifact out of nowhere that forced him to temporarily become weaker for a while. Later when another enemy attacked the country of... let's say woman #1, MC was forced to go to woman #2 who leads another country to beg for help for woman #1. Result? Woman #2 refused, which really was justified. Woman #1 is the direct competitor of her country after all. MC may have saved her life many times and almost died to help her even more times, but country first! She is a responsible ruler.

Later when woman #1 was about to get killed, MC oh-so-desperately screamed in anger trying to protect her, cursing his strength was sealed. Really, the MC at full power could have easily solved this. Then... at the last moment, the last possible moment! Woman #1 was just about to die! Another enemy was observing and smiling in satisfaction! The MC had been easily defeated, looking on in desperation! At that moment! Woman #2 takes pity on him and woman #1, coming to help.

This is seriously more than I can take.


  1. The frustration knowing MC at normal strength can easily resolve the entire situation, and author purposely used such an out-of-nowhere, bullsh*t excuse to weaken him just for drama.
  2. The feeling MC and woman #1 only were saved due to woman #2 taking pity on their pitiful struggling.
  3. So much resentment. The MC has helped woman #2 A LOT. He saved her life at least 3 times, put his life at extreme risk to help her 3-4 times, helped her greatly power up 2 times and gave her excellent advice quite a few times. Now he came begging for help, and she refused. It's justifiable and expected. Woman #2's top priority has always been her country over romance. A wise and responsible ruler, yes. Still doesn't change the fact she refused the begging of her threefold+ life savior. For her to change her mind to help now, there's really a feeling of 'I don't want your f*cking help.' Is he expected to feel gratitude or something...?
  4. How the MC splendidly slapped his own face. Woman #2 has been thinking for the good of her country all this time, and asked MC to abandon woman #1 to join her many times. MC refused but accepted her attitude, promising to become strong enough to overcome any obstacle in their romance, regardless of country. Well... instead of becoming so powerful he could freely take her hand, he became so pitiful she had no choice but to help him and woman #1, going back on her words and ignoring what was best for the country she had been caring for. Is it even possible to fail (succeed?) in a more humiliating way...?
  5. The 'last moment' timing is clearly added just for drama, yet again.
  6. It's even more amusing in that not only woman #2, woman #1 also openly acknowledged she prioritizes the well-being of her country over the MC. Though in her case, her country was practically handed to her by the MC's own hard work...

Enough, I can't take it anymore. Drop drop drop! <<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.


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

    - 3 damn angel are fooking irritating, and also that prophecy guy.. Its damn irritating when everything goes according to someone's deduction..

Better than most isekai tr*sh out there.

Story is decent. Setups are o.k. but suspending disbelief is difficult. Setup is very shonen-y except you don't get any satisfaction, e.g.:

  1. Story obviously indicates its a trap or pitfall sequence.
2. MC fails to realize its a trap even though in some cases he says "ITS A TRAP" before it happens

... more>> 3. A bunch of people die

4. MC swears he will get stronger and it will never happen again.

5. Repeat. (With bunch of people dying again)

MC is quite ret*rded, and youll only get power progression from this and no actual age progression/maturity growth.

Writing is okay. Suffers from redundancy and breaking the occasional 4th wall when the author suffers brain damage. 25-50% of chapters after 100 are just recapping or repeating itself. This seems to be a common trend in Chinese WNs. Lore and power scaling can be inconsistent... author can't even keep track of it.

Story eventually becomes 90% telling or descriptions because author can't write dialogue exchanges worth a damn. The third party omniscience perspectives on character thoughts add next to nothing to the story. This is probably why the story is not enjoyable at all.

Author can't write good action scenes worth a damn. They're generally acceptable at the very least but nowhere near good.

Romance is above average for isekai if youre into that. The s*x scenes are definitely R-15, so don't come here looking for smut.

Has a lot of "im 14 and this is deep" / chuuni moments where the author showcases their amateurism. Not as bad as a lot of other isekai.

Would rate 4* because it is very readable and addicting, but it's not very enjoyable so I lowered it. <<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 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.

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?

It's really hard to see a good novel go down the drain. As a polygamy fanatic myself it's really scarce to find an acceptable polygamy novel. Most of them have several piss points I have to ignore but I have to complain about this one ahem.

WHAT THE ACTUAL ABCDE FFFFFFFF!!!!!! What the F is the authors problem.

Sure great novel but he mixes piss in. Who the f u k is Roman and delia those two cu nnt s. They are not good friends at all. All they do is cause... more>> the MC. More problems.

Athena was good before she causes all sorts of trouble due to her s*upidity at first it was ok but after all the MC has done for her she still has the nerve!!!ugh

The little loli can be tolerated if you ignore that he would be long dead because she fed him poison with his so called master. How do you get along with people like that.

And does he has a pokemon fetish. Why the he'll is he turning every enemy into an ally.

But most of all, my major problem is. HE TAKES TOO MANY RISKS FOR NO REASON AT ALL.

He becomes a spy several times brushing against many people who are way stronger than him. Without plot all his spy endeavors would end with him dead. And he doesn't have a strong valid reason to risk his life like that soooo Manny times. I sense it's about to be a trope hence my review.

But seriously man, why is it so hard to find a decent novel with only a few flaws that occur once every few chapters instead of flaws that stay throughout the novel as they are 'characters' and personality deficiency <<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

Let be honest, you have read too many boring reviews.

So I will give you something different, a memetic review of Chronic Serial Seducer Diablos.

Serial Seducer Diablos is the story of a man for the modern day weebo hellscape of Earth being reincarnated as a man in the freaking Demon... Or you can call it Another California. You will watch as our weebo try to achieve his ultimate objective: SURVIVE and graduate to the side objective: SEDUCE. That is right. It is nigh impossible to hold a stake in anything in... more>> this novel but the waifus, so you shouldn't even spend energy to care about other plot. The author didn't introduce some spanning philosophy like One Piece and a complex power system like Nen. It is Chinese novel writing in every way from the usage power level as a wall, shallow surface tactic and scheme which sound too boring. Fights boils down to skill/minion/power-up spamming with barely any tactic and thus pretty much mediocre.

You think I might be ragging on this novel like a highly motivated zebra, but this novel wasn't a complete Panda of the market. There is one redeemable quality is this novel... the waifus. Sure, the Chinese's novel waifu is essentially Pokemon, but Diablos succeeds in actually making the Pokemons able to fit in the Pokedex in MECE structure instead of having 6 copies of female Mew 2. You can watch Weebo Diablos in his natural and perform the act of seduction using two secret weapons: False Identity and Vanishing Point.

If local ice-types friend zone/conflicted/hesitate your first identity, then the second identity they love/respect/obsess with will probably do the trick. You can always play vanishing point to deepen the impression of the poison type and turn hatred into an obsession which hopefully migrates to a zone of romance. The greatest feature of this novel is watching the slow motion equilibrium that could descend into a World War.

Whether it is the Warrior-type, the Seducer-type, the daze Magician type, the Ice-berg type, the Mew 2, and the Dense Rock-type, and the Poison-type... the selection of Pokemon in this novel is certified Mutually Exclusive Collectively Exhuasive which by itself is an accomplishment. It could have been a masterpiece if all the pokemon is actually more active outside their arc, but I expect that is too much for Another California.

Overall it is good, but far from a masterpiece. It actually gave me an inspiration to write a similar waifu base story, with better implementation of the Mechanic, which is a pretty high praise as I am dead inside. <<less
