“If I don’t die… I swear I will act on all my evil thoughts..”

Not exactly everyone’s typical thought when they’re about to die. What will a cowardly young man do when reincarnated with the evil powers to redefine his destiny? Can the natural kindness of human nature triumph over evil? Will he become the cold-blooded demon king of legend, or will he forge his own path and rain down another kind of terror?

Chapter 61.

GDK is a... different type of xuanhuan/qihuan type story. While it features cultivation and devil techniques, it also mixes that with necromancy. Necromancy was an accepted but designated “weak and worthless” major of magic study which means our MC's use of both can create some high tiered stuff. Adding to the fact that devil techniques are part of xuanhuan and so have a benefit to our MC’s body cultivation... you can see how a rather legit form of “magic swordsman summoner” can come into being.

Other than that, our MC... more>> is a person with a mix of memories. As an otaku from our dear Earth, he’s a virgin with a relatable attitude and low moral ideals. He understands that even though he has “devilish” thoughts, actually doing them would be bad. Then he has a bit of technical memories from a Devil Practitioner who kidnapped him and wanted to use him as an extra life (body) for when he died. Instead, he dies and some parts of his intelligence and memory are passed on. Along with that, he gives our MC the idea that “Devil practitioners do what they want” which further decreases our MC’s control. Lastly, we have the MC’s current body and memories. Dear Bryan is a fool who ends up as the worst of slaves. Beaten daily, given daily chores, eventually killed and disposed after too much experimenting by the necromancy students...

GDK is hard to describe. Some will like it, others may not. For me, I’ll be interested to read more, but it’s not my favorite. <<less

Impressions as of Ch.52.

Decent is the word I would use. It’s slightly different than the usual “I found a secret, I’ll power up and kick ass!” stories in that the MC kept his head low and acted the fool for a long time (almost as long as Yi Yun of “True Martial World”) instead of immediately displaying his new found strength. This is one of those stories where I wish the novel had the benefit of an editorial polish. Perhaps it’s due to it being a web novel, but the... more>> prose can be quite simplistic, and perhaps the process of translation made the text look very basic (not the fault of the translator, just that the source itself seems lacking). You don’t really get a sense of the environment and how it looked like. It seems to be a mixture of medieval/western fantasy type story with Chinese elements, as the characters all have western names (except for the MC’s original world name).

The author’s other story is a R-18 novel and you can see traces of it here. The MC has blatantly lewd thoughts about the beautiful women near him, and if this is ever adapted to a Japanese anime; you’ll have an ecchi show in the veins of “Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero” or “Highschool DxD”.

It is still early days of its translations yet, but I will mark this one as something I’d read while waiting for other novels. It can be humorous at times and the story seems to show potential. It’s looking like a light-hearted xianxia with elements of comedy. But as of Ch.50 the MC was forced to take a dark path, and things might change rapidly.

An interesting read nonetheless. <<less
