Generic OP fulfillment trash.

It starts off fairly interesting, but after his first victory over another sovereign, it quickly abandons everything that makes it unique and just becomes generic garbage that's not worth anyone's time.

Other than the MC, most characters rarely get mentioned, which, since they're boring, would be fine if the MC wasn't the most boring character of them all. There's nothing special about him. He's your typical loser MC that receives a cheat like ability, plot armor thicker than the walls of Fort Knox, and a personality... more>> amputation with a free lobotomy on the side. In a story that should revolve around tactics, strategy and planning, he dominates everyone using excessive luck. He has no skill, intelligence, or power of his own. Everything that he is is dependent on the lucky encounters that the author constantly throws at him. The disparity in power between him and absolutely every other sovereign shown so far is so egregious that it's like comparing gnats to Galactus. There is no tension because the MC cannot fail, no matter how much he deserves to, even when losing would cost him absolutely nothing at all.

The only reason I'm even giving it 2 stars is because its actually fairly decent in the beginning, nothing special, but not really bad. After the armies stop mattering in the slightest though, it quickly goes down hill and becomes boring, generic trash. <<less

Only few chapters out so hard to judge but the synopsis sounds really interesting.

Dimensional Sovereign is a modern fantasy novel. Kang-jun is a hard working guy trying to meet his ends meet but the fate has never been kind to him. Thankfully a mysterious entity takes pity on him and offers him power to fight his fate and become rich and powerful.

Generic? Perhaps. But which novel doesn't uses cliches? What matters is the execution of tropes and author has done that well.

Perhaps some would compare it with Arena... more>> but honestly this book is totally different in its own way and has its own good points. Like the translator said the novel has very different elements.

Believe me it's different and interesting. Give it a try. <<less

Let's start with "Hwanmong, " it is like a dreamscape. An alternate plane of existence reached by being asleep.

That out of the the story starts with a slightly below average MC with a few problems. He is given an amazing gift of magic with a rpg like growth system.

As of chapter 8 he has scared the heck out of a bunch of bullies and gotten his basic powers going. A good opening to the story that leaves me wanting more.

Good start.

The premise is interesting, using the dream game world to get stronger in real life which in turn allows you to buy property and earn status in real life to enable the MC to unlock areas in the dream world to expand its reach there becoming *sovereign*. I can imagine that it's a potato chip novel where you need a lot of it to truly enjoy it even though they have already glossed over a lot of beginner novel stuff like past trauma / injury. Love interest. Antagonists. Revenge... more>> etc I hope it isn't another glorified revenge novel. But honestly I don't see myself reading this without waiting in increments of at least 10. Otherwise it's pretty good.

Keep it up Turtle <<less

Such wasted potential.

If the story had ended at Chapter 50, I would probably have given it at least four stars, but sadly it didn't. A sudden and massive plot derailment (about 1.6 Hendersons) occurs in Chapter 51 (it's also a Deus ex Machina).

The original plotline was about an average guy with a crappy job and no talent who lived in a cheap apartment when a talking corpse crawled out from under his bed and offered him the chance to join in a supernatural game for ultimate power. He accepts, gains... more>> dark magic powers (which he uses to punish some jerks and put their souls to work in his dream mines) and generally start to move up in the world. His opponents have a natural advantage in the game due to being rich in reality, but since the protagonist is more willing to put his life on the line, he manages to make the best of some good luck and emerge victorious.

Now, forget everything I just said.

The protagonist is the strongest being on earth, and every ten chapters his power grows so much it can't even be compared to where he was before. Every enemy he meets is quickly defeated and, if they're female, added to his harem (then promptly forgotten about). All the people of Earth (that matter) admire him and send him gifts. Artifacts of great power are acquired with regularity... And just as quickly made obsolete.

In short, it's total crap; crap which in turn *takes a crap* on the first 50 chapters that were actually good. <<less

This story is about luck. When the MC walks bumps into a Boss 1 of the following two things can happen:

1. Boss trips over his own feet managing to impale himself and dies (or similar things), drops rarest of rare drops where MC learns the rarest of rare skills or gets the rarest of rare items
2. Boss feels like he no longer likes his own lord, joins MC

The MC has no real skill, he gets the best drop possible every single time. He has no redeeming quality. The story... more>> tries to portrait him as courageous, however it's not hard to be courageous with his level of luck where it's almost impossible to not win.

The story started out looking like a Management/Strategy building story, however after 40-50 chapters all that is abandoned and instead goes a whole different route of just power up and beating people in a 'war'.

If you like wish fulfillment from amateur writers then this book is for you, if not then even other stories that are spectacularly bad are better than this one on this site. <<less

Trash MC who gains power to become almost god like entity in about month of time in the novel, he leaves everyone in dust, gains best items, best skills, and uses his charisma as plot armor to gain other strong guys under him even if they are useless chapter later, he now is strongest on earth and have gone to seek transcendency aka godhood, there is no planning just raw force, MC is being given best things, best skill to fight, best legend weapon early and then myth sword, best... more>> wings which give power, best household, best luck, and even situation in latest chapter where he heard about phoenix which can be tamed but is almost impossible... later that chapter he got insect aka favorite food of that phoenix which rises chance to get it, some guy talks about impossible thing and he does it casualy, there is no work, even going to some hall where you got magical items, he got rarest chance of special training with super strong guy, there is no low and high in this novel for MC, there is only highest, MC could sit there and just achieve godhood, and other best things would be obtained by stumbling on them when going to toilet. <<less

Story is based on an interesting idea, but the MC is completely character-less and boring. I get it's supposed to be kind of "average guy meets OP power", but in this case the "average" also applies to his personality. Will continue reading to see if author intends to flesh out the character or if it's just going to continue being the story of a cardboard box with powers.

DS is a very fun arena-esque read, the story tells the tale of a man who has been chosen to participate in a dream-game like world where if he died there, he would die in reality.

The unique point in DS is that it integrates the mc's real life and economy as a part of the game which makes the novel even more interesting, we will see the MC being active in the real world by the use of his dark magics, earning money and buying more territory so it would... more>> help him in the dream world.

Slight spoilers below, read at risk.

In the dream world,

Spoiler

his first mission was about building a base or something similar based on his goshiwon (room), then he has to fight off against invading monsters and eventually enlarge his territory. He would later be able to summon his own group of monsters and other unique things to fight for him.

[collapse]

The only lacking thing I felt in this novel is the lack of character interactions, some of them just felt.. too rushed. But aside from that everything is fine.

Oh, and it's turtle translating so... no worries.

That's all for now, hoping for more!

8.5 for the early arcs. <<less

it's an ok story. But the MC is really uninteresting imo. He isn't funny, witty, shameless, hot-headed, cold-blooded. He really doesn't have any identifying personality in these 8 chapters, which makes it hard to understand and connect with him, although I can see him become more cold-hearted and ruthless as the story progresses. I don't mind if that happens, but he needs his reasons. His reasons aren't strong enough for him to act like a power-hungry person wanting to dominate the world. So far, I just don't like the vibes... more>> coming from him <<less

Interesting powers, fast paced writing and interesting supernatural setting in the real world. Not bad. MC's powers remind me of Lelouch's power. And also like Ghost Rider. ("Look into my eyessss") and Accel World.

Entering into a bit of spoiler talk : I am interested at seeing how many ways can he uses the sins he collects.

Finally a unique story with an actual thinking person, I can actual see a person in the MC's situation behaving like he does. A story that lacks the cliche and forced romance at least as far as chapter 67 there's no real romance. There aren't any dumb characters that show up to just so the MC can beat them even after he shows how strong he is (well not later in the story at least). There are enemies that recognize MC is stronger than them and either try to outsmart... more>> the MC, or group up to beat him. The only downside is the MC's personality is very average, but its kinda grows as he gets stronger, its different from other MC's in top rated stories on this site which are normally like "when he does it, its bad, but now that I'm stronger its OK if I do it! Time for a murder spree but its OK one person in that group of 1000 attacked me once so its OK to kill them all". I just read two HORRIBLE stories back to back so this may be getting overrated at a 5 but even then its definitely over 4 so ending this rant... read this? <<less

The novel begins with a poor MC who dreams of becoming rich. He is then thrown into the world of hwanmong as one of the sovereigns. Here he must fight for territory a.k.a buildings from monsters and other sovereigns to build barracks, mines, etc in the rooms he has occupied and build his own subordinates to achieve his dream.

Meanwhile he must also use his management abilities in earth to earn money because a management war also happens between the sovereigns in earth where he is faced with many opponents who... more>> lived their life with a golden spoon.

Sounds interesting right? It's too bad the novel threw this entire framework through the window after reaching a certain chapter where the hwanmong of earth is invaded.

At this part the MC somehow becomes a born warrior instantly. He slays anything that stands in his way easily. He gets massive powerups every 5 chapters. We then have a perfect example of the classic "Meet God, kill God. Meet Buddha, kill Buddha".

So then what happened to the management part? It turns out that MC becomes the most powerful being in earth after the invasion and now he doesn't need to buy buildings, build facilities or make an army.

After becoming the strongest in earth, he sets off to other worlds of hwanmong where we repeat again with the massive powerups and anyone that doesn't agree with him will face the threat of being killed by him. He becomes very impulsive and never thinks about consequences since everything somehow works out as he wants it to by his powerful luck stat.

Reading this far in the story, I personally hope an ending where everything turns out to be a dream and MC is still the poor person who has a lame leg and cries at how cruel a dream it was and then he starts having a hallucination with his stat window open and luck stat showing 0. He then falls into depression and hangs himself.

3/5 for a good start. <<less

Great concept. Honestly don't know what to compare it to. Maybe something like Shin Megami Tensei would be the closest.

So the protagonist is one of many people with the power of Hwanmong "empty dream". This means that whenever he falls asleep, he's transported to an alternate version of earth where monsters roam. In Hwanmong, the world is like a game where the "sovereigns" are sorta like great generals. The more they conquer, manipulate, and recruit, the stronger they'll be both in Hwanmong and in real life.

In the alternate... more>> world, all the buildings in the world turn into dungeons. The bigger the building, the stronger and more terrifying the dungeon. These dungeons can be bought in real life, or conquered in Hwanmong. If you conquer them, then you have to deal with the boss monster at the end of them. Skyscrapers tend to have terrifying things like dragons at the end of them.

The story is an "overpowered" "reaction shot" genre story. I'm fine with that, but a lot of people REALLY hate those. So reader beware.

My problem with the series is that it's rushed. The protagonist advances through the ranks too damn fast. One chapter he's talking about the immense gap between him and the tycoon class sovereigns, the next he's kicking their asses and making them look like cheap hacks. Next he's talking about the unreachable divide between him and commanders, then he crosses like 90% of that gap in like 4 chapters.

Another example is the pacing of the missions. I have read up to chapter 94 now and only 17 missions have been completed by the protagonist at this point. There are 100 in total and there are 180 chapters in total. The fiction is finished, so that means in the next 90ish chapters, we're going to have about five times more missions completed than have been completed in the first 90 chapters.

Every chapter seems to go out of it's way to make the protagonist as ridiculously powerful. Enemies are reduced to having a quick introduction and a glossed over fight after which the protagonist gains a massive boost to his wealth and resources.

In fact, I'd say that Dimensional Sovereign is quickly losing what made it so appealing in the first place. That's the link to the normal human world where all the technology and stuff is. It's quickly shifting into a straight fantasy series.

The first thing that happens is he walks around town and blatantly show off his new power and let them (his victims of BLACK MAGIC) know he can use it again, admitting to that he's the cause so there's no doubt about who caused them to suddenly become paralysed and mute, right before calling the cops who will obviously try to find out what happened...

MC is basically asking to get found out, especially if there's any other people in a similar situation as himself, which is basically a guarantee since... more>> he's already seen the corpse...

And by the way how did that girl he saved in the beginning know that it was the MC who made the drunkars fall over and vomit? And even if she know it was because of him, why in the world would she think that's completely normal for some dude with a limp to show up, say a couple of words, and make someone else fall over without touching them?

If the novel is good enough I'll continue to read and look the other way pretending like these things never happened, but if the characters continue to be this stupid (especially if it includes the MC) then no premise is good enough for me to read it since just "potential" doesn't make for an interesting story.

Edit: And wow, copy & paste from chapter 7 when the MC runs into a gangster boss or whatever:

Spoiler

“So why were you looking?”

The eyes of the man were cold as Kang-jun replied without any embarrassment.

“I was just wondering if you were a celebrity.”

“Celebrity?”

“Your clothes are flashy and you have a handsome face. I apologize if I offended you.”

The man’s expression show that he thought it was absurd.

“Is that really the reason?”

“Yes.”

“You are a lucky bastard. Release him.”

Sorry but this is just plain dumb <<less

Well, the story concept is fairly unique compared to other novels you'd be able to find here. But does that make it good? Not really. The character interactions are terrible and the plot doesn't make any sense if you stop to think about it. The game mechanics are iffy, too, but if you turn your brain off and skip to the fights, those are pretty good.

A good concept, amalgamating business and dungeon management, there will be campaigns, research for better units to fight, investment in the business and stuff.

As of now, the abovementioned are literally empty words until it genuinely happen. Up until chp 34, MC is a big manchild, hope that he improves.

Update: I think its worth 3 stars after finishing it. Why? Because the ending is interesting, a lot less repetitive and a lot more enjoyable. However I don't think that forgives the disgusting mid section we got so three stars is all it gets

Its sh*t. It started out pretty good, interesting concept, interesting game like elements and such. But the bad points outweigh more and more the further the novel carries on.

Bad points:
-Fights are very generic and very general. No specific awesome fight scenes that make the reader feel... more>> pressured or worried for the mc
-Everysingle chapter, the MC finds another awesome item that is legend ranked. So boring, just fanservice for self fulfilment but fan service like this has to be built up. The reader has to feel like the MC deserves it. But this one doesn't because he earns another legend item the next chapter for no reason.
-The writer quickly scraps the interesting real life this guy lived. It becomes basically just the dream world once the war starts.
-The author has no idea how to progress plot. Instead another character tells the MC about 'x' every 2 chapters. The MC goes'x?' and they explain it before he finds it 5 chaps later. There is no story development, just the author introducing more and more random things out of the blue.

Don't read this. You will like the start, it is original and interesting. But that is just a trap, the novel becomes more and more boring as it progresses. Just save yourself some time and go read a novel that stays interesting. <<less

Interesting concept, had a somewhat boring start, followed by somewhat interesting 30-40 chapters, unfortunately somewhere around chapter 70 the mc's luck became the one and only factor moving the plot forward and all the other characters got pushed into irrelevance. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if the final big bad of the series died from skull fracture after slipping on an overly polished floor panel, while the protagonist accidentally finds some super ancient item on the local junkyard and magically turns into a supergod as a result of... more>> finding said item.

There's no suspense, the solution to every problem gets handed to the MC on a silver platter, world building is devoid of detail and there's absolutely no character development, if anything there's character un-development since the MC went from being hard working and lucky to just being lucky.

Also at this point the protagonist is the only relevant character in the series, everyone else might as well be called 'good mook #n' or 'bad mook #n', since they have no impact on the plot either way. Bad guys just randomly pop up in order to luckily drop the exact item the MC needs at the moment and good guys are generally being useless but occasionally get mentioned for the sake of pretending they have some sort of a meaning except that they're actually doing nothing. <<less

A novel that had a good start but went bad midway. The business management and romance tags are completely misleadingThe MC gains his abilities due to his desire to become rich, but after some chapters, he just becomes a guy who wants to become strong. And before you know it, he's the strongest. His level up speed is too fast and unrealistic. The MC was someone who would be considered a below average guy in the beginning, but he became one of the top existences in the universe... in probably... more>> a year? Even Xianxia MC's know for the fast growth cant compare to him.

The romance is awful. The main girl rarely shows up and seems more like the MC's cook/housekeeper. As for the other one... meh. She seems to have vanished and has no role to play anymore.

I'd give this novel 2 stars, but giving it three because of the good start and fast translation. <<less
