Have you ever thought that the state of the world as it presently is, could revert to the laws of the ancients?

It is the dawn of an age of the survival of the fittest.

Was 4 stars in the beginning, went up to 5 after a hundred or so chapters and then starts declining around 500 until rapidly falling to 1 on Chapter 536, and goes even further down hill from there.

If you consider chapter 535, as the last chapter, it's worth a read, that's what I'm doing in my head anyways.

At that point:

MC evolves to where he has 0 emotions (which makes no sense given the context as he devolved himself, the author even screwed this up), all side characters, included romantic interests and child/clone childs are cut off and no longer matter, completely gone from the story, you don't even get a reaction from them. It's like the author just got tired of writing other characters other than the MC.

This novel is amazing. It's one of the few novels where the MC has a "system" but the author doesn't just half ass everything. He carefully reveals why everything is happening and how. The MC doesn't just get absurd cheat power ups from his system either. He often has to get into fights he can barely handle just to level up or survive.

The other amazing thing about this novel is the apocalypse is constantly ongoing. Things keep changing as the novel goes on. Around 450 there was a... more>> HUGE change to the world again. The novel took a complete drastic turn.

It's true the MC is a womanizer but it's not like harem novels where he's just sort of half assing it. He really goes ahead and does it openly and society even scorns him a bit for it. The author even acts like it's a flaw and doesn't hand wave it away. Honestly it just makes him more believable. A lot of novels these characters become freaking rock stars but they just shoo away all the females. We all know that doesn't happen in reality.

Anyone who hasn't read it up to the current point should give it another try. It's truly unique compared to all the other stuff on here. The recent change to the apocalypse is also pretty damn interesting. I don't want to spoil but the novel goes in a drastically different direction than you'd think. <<less

The first 150 chapters talks about "The end of the world" and challenges that MC faces. There are a lot of unexpected developments and tragedies. You can feel the pains and emotions of characters. Even an ant can kill you with one bite. Everyday is like a living hell. MC is given a mysterious power to evolve but he is still weak compared to evolved beasts. Every animals are evolving fast except human. You will face Global Warming, Earthquake, Disease, Zombies, dinosaur, giant living trees, Insect Infestation, supernatural beings, dragons,... more>> sea beasts, and Solar Storm. MC suspects that there is an unknown force involved in the collapse of the world and try to obliterate the human race. There are many times MC think about ending his life but he has to keep going and protect his girlfriends.

There are some ecchi scenes in the story. A lot of girls got attracted by his power but he usually doesn't force any girls to be with him except one time he lost control of himself when he meet his ex-girlfriend again.

Overall, this story is pretty good and realistic. A lot of Actions and fighting with special powers are entertaining to read. THE Story get BETTER after you pass the dark developments in the first 150 chapters. So keep reading it, don't give up when you face the tragedies in the story. All those tragedies and pains make you think about the values of life and the choices you make. Don't worry the story will become more soft after chapter 150. <<less

I had just recently caught up to the latest chapter of Swallowed Star and was completely loving it. I thought to continue reading in the post apocalyptic survival niche and just so happened to stumble upon this poorly written, harem driven, r*pe story. It had everything it needed to be great, be it mutations or rogue governments. It's such a shame that a cool idea like this had to be wasted on an author as short sided and perverse as this one. If this most recent r*pe victim had shown... more>> more than just a passing affection at the beginning of the story, these last few chapters wouldn't have involved abduction and rape. If he'd planned out the menu and the skills/stats better, he wouldn't have had to lump together a bunch of **** under ill-fitting umbrella terms like determination (Or dexterity which improves visual observation somehow?...). Stuff like that became this stories biggest issue.

All in all, this is a story hosted in a very interesting world but focuses on a dipsh*t and his shallow harem. The men are unevolved and mostly parasitic, doing little to advance the stories plot. The villains are basic and none have shown the potential to be anything more than a stepping stone (In fact, they are all already dead. Insta killed...). And the girls only exist to be wet for the main character, even if that girl is a 14-year-old child or a recently (As in days) widowed wife. If you want a quality survival story read Swallowed Star or even Chronicles of Primordial Wars. Much better writing, and the worlds they are set in are just as fascinating. <<less

A good 4 from me...

Actually, this is a novel that makes me think that... the reviews on this site is crazy as hell. At first, when I read all reviews of this novel, I was like damn, its not a good novel eh...?

But then, I was like 'lets start reading, who gives a f... about what people think?'

... more>> And... I was right.

This novel is a solid piece of work imo. There's no such a thing as 'rapist, ruthless mc' I read like 100 chapters now so my review is at this point. So people, when u think about something, just not think about yourself, you have to think about the world, the setting, the people and APOCALYPSE!!

For god sake guys, what do you think? When the world will slip into a chaotic timeline, do you think that every country will have its heroes or smt?

The answer is... no.

This is not a superman movie, this is not a 'I'm gonna save everyone' kinda novel. This is fight for survival. Yes, I kinda agree with people about the gaming system, but imo that makes thing more easy for the author.

I'm having a lot of fun with this novel because it is well written, balanced, slow but detailed kinda work. So before you start reading this novel, you should ask yourself 'What do you expect from a survival novel?' then you can read this reviews or just dive straight in.

Btw this is not like God and Devil World... <<less

Found it boring, would have been better without the game system. Its not his overpowered, but he does do everything with ease. It seems like a slice of life apocalypse and thats OK, its just that slice was boring.

Translation is good.

I like this MC, he is human. Ironically, the 3 stars (instead of 5) is the reason for that.

What do I mean? well look, we have a person who is emotionally a normal person.. he is not apathetic, he will help people if he can (like anyone would) but at the same time, he is not powerful enough to be a savior so he will push people away. He is smart too, at least twice as intelligent as a normal person.

Alright, that is the run down of the MC. He... more>> is described as a good person right? well, he indirectly allows the deaths of MILLIONS of people (well, they haven't died yet in the novel, but nothing can seemingly save them). He allows this, because his personal freedom of movement is more important than they are.

How does he 'allow' for all those deaths? well heres the thing, and it is even ACKNOWLEDGED by the MC in the novel. He has many skills thanks to his RPG-like power (he is the only person so far with the power of 'levels'), out of his many powers he has a skill called 'Synthesis' - this skill allows him to combined things to make them stronger. For example, his sword was upgraded with the shell of a monster beetle and his snake-skin armor was too. It also works on bullets, so even though he hasn't done it - it should work on things like missiles.

The 'catch' with this skill is: HE CAN SEEMINGLY USE IT INFINITELY

The ONLY limitation of this skill, so far, is his own ability to gather material and it can fail (failure has only been shown a couple times, and he's used the skill dozens of times). So, hypothetically, he could be sitting down making bullets/armor/cold weapons/boots for the military, which has been actively fighting a losing battle for the entire novel, all day (unlike in other novels, the military doesn't just dissolve into sh*t instantly, they have faults but them and the police have been fighting back the monsters/trees CONSTANTLY while providing food to the survivors).

The monsters in the MC's RPG system, are colored like White-Light Blue-Blue-Dark Blue-etc, the MC's upgraded weapons (INCLUDING BULLETS) can be upgraded to the corresponding color grade, where they then have the power to kill those monsters. For example, his sword is Dark Blue and it can 'effortlessly' cut through Light Blue monsters. In chapter 79 he upgrades the bullets to a Desert Eagle revolver and commented it could bring 4th-tier monsters down (4th tier=dark blue, they can literally destroy cities and it takes fighter jets to put them down) and he DID kill a 3rd tier bird monster with it, 1 shot to the brain..

I know it would not be a fun novel if the MC just worked in a sweat shop producing war supplies, but... look, any good person with that power in the situation would do it, and because he didn't do that, the military could not defend the main city in that province, which should result in the death of millions of survivors. The first city the MC was in had already fallen and he knew the monsters were getting stronger than modern weapons could handle (he makes the comment that another technology boom would be needed to continue the fight)... I wish the author never included that power, at least how it seemingly doesn't have limits other than possible failures (but even though it fails sometimes, he never gets tired from using it). <<less

Aliens.. The story would have been much better if it stayed on Earth. I personally find that the MC became too OP before everything on Earth could be explored, especially regarding materials gained from evolved beasts and floral. It'd have been interesting to see how new materials could have improved Humanity like the Wisdom Fruit.

[collapse]

With this in mind I feel the Novel deserves three stars as while the first few hundred chapters were excellent, the ending was rather sub-par in comparison. <<less

This novel's setting is in a post-apocalyptic where aliens called Glasians have released a virus and turned Earth into a such environment. It's not like a fallout where everything's dead and barren. Every animal has mutated and humans are at the bottom of the food chain.

The protagonist, Luo Yuan, is just an average guy, but he gets a game system installed in him by a mysterious civilization. He goes on a journey to safety with his friends and he makes lovers along the way. The system displays his strength, stamina, and all that, but it also displays something called willpower. Read if you want to find out about it. The protagonist doesn't level up his willpower from the xp he gets at the beginning, but this changes later. He increases his cell size to make himself powerful, then makes his body biologically perfect. He also clones the human race to make them perfect.

He starts leveling up his willpower then starts space traveling. As he increases it, he starts becoming a 4th dimensional being, breaking away from the 3rd dimension. There's no cultivation and his powers purely comes from quantum physics and theoretical physics. If you understand physics, this novel is a gem.

The negative from all this powering up is that he starts becoming less human and more of a logical lifeform. He strays from his lovers. Though, he starts regaining his humanity back from suppressing his desire to become strong.

This novel was good overall, but the negative thing was that the side characters are so weak, there's barely any interaction between the MC and them.

[collapse]

A lot of traveling and killing beasts and survival at the beginning. Powering up and starting to become over powered at the mid and becoming a literal god at the end.

The title of this novel suppose to be "Sperm Of Twilight". The MC is shameless, never felt enough of how many girls he need to take care of, even in dire situation. The girls also have no other choice due to the reign of man power they rely. The worst thing is among his harem, all are babysitted type. If not because of the nature threat to humanity in story, the novel will have nothing left to offer. I bet the author chose this MC among other character because he... more>> need to relieve his s*x stress..

Spoiler

The MC has a lot of potential to make its own army at early stage, but he didnt. He has the power to lead and change everything, but he didnt. He want to rely on the army first, while knowing they wont be enough. For example he knew the mosquito is the source of rumored desease, but he keep it secret for his own benefit. He can craft better equipment for human kind by just using feather junks, but he keep it secret too. The whole battle and fate might change if only he help. Instead he abuse his OP power for his own harem building.

I know it is his right to use it for whatever reason. But when you have a greater power, it come with a greater responsibility. Thats why spiderman is a hero. But this MC is really a sperm hero in my opinion. If no body forcing him to help, he might as well has his own way at the corner, while world end. I have to say, his system power is one of his reason become this selfish. The system only reward for quest without any particular reason.

Im nagging a lot, because this novel has a great potential to be so much better. Its such a waste, it become a third rate. I gave it 5 stars to compansate the lower rate.

Came back and did over this review, there a lot of things I liked about this novel when I started reading it. but as it goes towards the 500's I find my interests in this waning. Naturally there are alot of things to appreciate in this novel like how the apocalypse started. it didn't just happen at the flick of finger it came in waves and each wave things got harder and harder for human kind. Everything on the planet was changed down to the vegetation... more>> could eat people much less the insects.

Harem? It is one I guess but it eventually just pushes the few harem members to the side as the story goes on as this guy just gets monstrously strong that they can't support him anymore. Only times they start to get relevant is when
Spoiler

pregnancy issues happen later on

[collapse]

MC honestly I don't really have much to say, he's okay. Not the greatest not really the worse. Sometimes I think though the author could stop using different method of justification when he decides he want's the MC to have s*x with a woman its honestly not something you should overuse.
Spoiler

There are several females he has s*x with in this novel but every single time the author would use some bullsh*t excuse as to why this situation came about and why the females are in acceptance of the situation

[collapse]

What made me start to lose interest...
Spoiler

The MC later on figured out that the reason the apocalypse caused by some alien race that used their planet to test a virus. Which was okay I could accept that, but this guy starts to fight them in space by himself (at this point hes almost like a god in the story) they proceed to try to kill him by blowing up half the moon and then they send several strikes to earth almost driving the entire civilization extinct, Only a couple hundred thousand chinese survived as he killed the aliens before they could finish. He then took over the ship they used and brought the survivors out to space, this novel now took a complete 180 degree turn from the direction I thought it would when I started reading. Now we later find out that the system he uses was send to him by some higher beings who want to use his power to obverse something (not gonna bother talk about it since it really doesnt matter) which results in him discarding the system bcuz he can do that now he's that OP. So now we follow our captain on the SS Enterprise space ship as they travel throughout the universe in hopes of discovering new life -_-

I'll still continue to read it when im bored but not much hopes. <<less

Good MC, pacing, storyline, heroines, world building until the MC went crazy. And plot armors started to pile up. Then the MC become idk some kind of worst, also become a rapist, murderer, genocidal maniac etc. (Not really😁) he's just idk not a good MC anymore. 😭😭😭 Personally I was quite enjoying the earlier chapters until it become just like GDW but on a different scale.

DAMN NICE apocalypse novel!

Or it was...

Until the MC destroyed everything.

... more>> Just like God and Devil World, it was real great at the start. For GDW the problem was that thr author is a freakin disgusting communist nationalist narrow-sighted bastard.

But for this novel the problem is the goddamn MC that become more and more shitty. Killing and raping, massacring and genocide for no reason.

If the author at least make the MC is having a mental breakdown, then I have no problem. But the inconsistent of this series is just baffling.

Author has reached the point where he has no more idea to put inside the story. Filler and useless words keep popping out everywhere.

4/10 from me, maybe will be better if character development increase. <<less

This is a great novel if you want a dose of reality in your apocalyptic novel - that is, the MC is not some superhuman that can do anything and everything, and he faced several setbacks due to that. He's better than most people, just that his best is not enough.

After reading the novel for a while I will have to say its a decent novel

The MC while not being too smart is still fairly smart or at least above average

As other have pointed out the setting is also very realistic

The world build is good

And the side characters are also ok not to trouble some or annoying

Spoiler

The MC has a decent ability to level up which seems unique only to him other characters get stronger by evolving by eating raw monster meat at the moment they eat monster rat and insect meat, etc , the MC while strong is not too op either just strong enough to cope with his opponents. The world setting is also good as the Apocalypse takes a while to start unlike other novels the characters are well fleshed out

It also has a good translation speed <<less

This novel was by no means perfect and for people with high morals it’s probably unbearable. It’s audience is essentially scumbags like me but I want people to understand the appeal of an apocalypse is the dark side of humanity. In that sense this novel depicts the dark side of humanity within a realistic manner.

This novel is great and the author is just really clever and brillant.

There is no repetition, the story flow is done well, mature not childish and thr development is only logical.

The harem is completely understandable and the personality change alike.

This story is underrated, I highly recommend.

ps: avoid spoilers, some titles can ruin the story if checked up while being far from them.

This is a severely underrated novel. Before you all start criticising I'll admit that the MC has many personality flaws. I don't like the MC either but what I like is the world development and flow of the story itself. The author tried to be as scientific as possible in describing the supernatural abilities and technology of aliens. There are no mysterious qi or internal energy or other crap here, everything is described as a result of gene mutation (atlest it is theoretically possible). The technology introduced is also something... more>> we are familiar with but just vastly advanced (like nuclear fusion reactors, antimatter bombs, unmanned robots, battleships etc) or some scientific concepts such as fourth dimension and dyson sphere. Next comes the story itself, if an apocalypse really happens how the government reacts to it may be similar to the story (people are used to being governed, it's not easy for local warlords to rise up).

If you are purely for the apocalypse and space story then you will enjoy this. At the the same time romance lovers might at all not like it (If you want true love in apocalypse good luck with that). <<less

Great start and full of potential. MC is slowly struggling to survive and journey to become stronger. Then after chapter 500+ everything goes downhill. Author literally stop caring about MC or any of the side characters and started a sci-fi wikipedia. Chapter after chapters of nonsense science crap that nobody give a sh*t about. Whole story that start to become like a report/diary that tell how humanity continue their survival. Basically author just decided to end all the characters that he spend hundreds of chapters building up their personality and... more>> just discard them. Other potential characters that show such promising story and development was also discarded. Literally the MC lovers, kids (clones) and potential love crush were just discarded like nothing. Author should have ended the story long ago went the war was over, but instead he keep writing more sci-fi stuff and basically the MC now has zero personality. Replace him with a doll and no one would notice. MC barely say more than a few lines in a chapter or read like 5 chapters and there is still zero mention about him. <<less
