Heavenly Jewel Change

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Every human has their Personal Jewel of power, when awakened it can either be an Elemental Jewel or Physical Jewel. They circle the right and left wrists like bracelets of power.

Heavenly Jewels are like the twins born, meaning when both Elemental and Physical Jewels are Awakened for the same person, the pair is known as Heavenly Jewels.

Those who have the Physical Jewels are known as Physical Jewel Masters, those with Elemental Jewels are Elemental Jewel Masters, and those who train with Heavenly Jewels are naturally called Heavenly Jewel Masters.

Heavenly Jewel Masters have a highest level of 12 pairs of jewels, as such their training progress is known as Heavenly Jewels 12 Changes.

Our MC here is an archer who has such a pair of Heavenly Jewels.

This novel...

The GOOD:

    • The core story is (if you weather the rest) not too bad.
    • There are some l9ikable characters, plot points.
The BAD:

    • Author likes to justify rape, people easily acquiescing to, and recovering from rape, as well as kidnapping for the purpose of rape. There's also some 'token humorous' resistance to his philandering, but 'whatever', it's harem.
    • Almost everything good that happens in this word, I kid you not, is a result of the MC following his dick. Not even worth it to mention other 'forced plot' conveniences with that glaring eyesore in the lead...
    • Author will build up some neat stuff for a while, then 'time passes', and he just forgets it, or uses it as a crutch to force some other nonsense thing later.
    • Lots of 'unimportant' people die at certain parts for dramatic effect only.
    • Author forgets earlier acquired skills-
      Spoiler

      even to the point of ignoring time travel to 'fix' carelessly lost lives.
      Fix typos writing a scroll? Spam reverse time x 1000

      See people die in front of him? (They're dead. Aw. : (

      )

      [collapse]

    • The writing... This novel is 848 chapters (or whatever by whichever dumb numbering system). I'm not sure if it's complete, but I don't care.

      Most of it (1/2 to 2/3) is the author explaining some sh*t to you. If the fluff was edited out, it would be 300 chapters- tops with no loss of action. The actual _story itself_ is minimal compared to:

      • forced via explanation actions,
      • forced via explanation conditions,
      • forced via explanation changes,
      • forced via explanation behaviors,
      • exposition,
      • exposition,
      • exposition, and
      • forced via explanation world canon changes. etc.
    • You'll find yourself dredging through paragraphs and paragraphs of 'I don't care about these details' and 'I knew this already' before the action in the story actually progresses.

    • Additionally, the MCs & allies victories all pretty much spring from:
      • stupid 'experts' of all types doing dumb sh*t or overlooking logical shit.
      • MC & (some) allies plot armor
      • other forms of forced plotting
    • Desperately relies on the formula:
      1. Push situation from 'bad' to 'worse'- till no one should be able to solve it!
      2. Have MC suddenly, magically solve it.
    • Anything you learn about the 'permanent world canon' is probably temporary
    • 'More pure'='More strong'; is most of the focus of the story, with certain 'purity levels' apparently being thresholds for a thing needing a new, descriptive version of the same thing (but notably better 'because more pure).

      If this sounds dumb, it's exactly the foundation of the attribute system used here.
    • Spoiler

      Author seems to LOVE the MC having dragon qualities, but shits on dragons throughout the story- making them weak-willed plot puppets that repeatedly suffer (even as a vehicle to help the MC)

      [collapse]
    • I skimmed the last 10 chapters, as they were fluffed out with too many explanations, forced 'twists' and dumb. Eventually I decided I didn't care what the end was supposed to be, as the author made it stupid. I know that sounds like a biased, whiny complaint, but the MC has a bunch of OP or useful powers, almost all of which he refused to remember he could use for the final, critical battle. Stupid. I gave up. I'm done.
The Different:

  • Some seemingly new-ish ideas in cultivation with the jewels, which quickly become obvious as a barely relevant external, 'attribute' & 'level' indicators- so 'nothing really' otherwise.
Overall, I don't recommend it. It's not horrible, and it does have some good points- but the ending is particularly weak with a forced climax that pretty much just 'does neat shit' that's 'illogical, but whatever'.

Glad I'm done.

I tried with this story. I really tried. I like the idea of the jewels, the cultivation levels, and the MC being an archer main. That latter is very rare. But... the story is just bad. Despite great ideas, the actual story is dumb.

I got something like 30% of the way through this story, and basically nothing happened. The MC goes from one training location to another and spends most of his time perving on women. Worse yet, he absolutely, positively can't fail at anything. He has two super-mcguffin powers... more>> that make him far, FAR superior to anyone at his own level, but even when he fights someone far beyond him he is always saved by plot armor. Not once in 150+ chapters did he ever face any credible danger or trouble. He's an arrogant jackass who will never face any consequences for his actions, and his actions in general are pretty boring.

The worldbuilding on this is 2.5/5 or so, with most of that credit going to the idea of the jewels. If we'd seen other cultivation methods beyond the MC's super-awesome one, I'd raise this, but all we see is how his is clearly better than anyone else's without knowing how anyone else's actually works.

The "romances" are 1/5. The female characters are all awful, one-dimensional beauties.

The character building is 1.5/5. In all that I read, the MC did develop a LITTLE. But I pretty much hated him throughout, and at his rate of development he'd still be an as*hole even by the end of the story.

The plot... barely exists? There's a war, but it doesn't matter to the story. It's just backdrop/motivation. This is a training-fic that just keeps beating readers over the head with how superior the MC is to everyone else while actually showing an as*hole who needs to be saved all the time from the consequences of his own ego. What I read can be summed up as "MC joins army, pervs on girl, joins non-military bow unit and trains there, joins military school and trains there while perving on girls..." and that's all. For hundreds of thousands of words.

I can't give this more than 1 star out of 5 overall. It's just not worth wasting time on. <<less

This is one of my favorite novels around at the moment, I've read the entire thing and like more of Tang three's works the moment I started I was enjoying myself, the main character is shameless, funny and strong. I really think this author does polygamy fictions better than monogamous because in just about every one of his works I've read he introduces at least 2 or 3 possible love interests and just decides to kind of give them the cold shoulder the entire novel

Tang Jia San Shao does not disappoint. Unlike his previous works like Douluo Dalu, this novel is more comedic... where else can you find a novel where the mc’s pen*s is slapped only to have it slap the MC’s love interest right back? The MC is initially portrayed as a shameless scoundrel but shows a more mature attitude every so often. The MC has plenty of lucky breaks, but he takes risks to achieve them. Anyway, it’s a good read. I recommend it.

Honestly. Just read it. If you like a good plot actually good characters that aren't entirely one dimensional and predictable and all that other jazz just read it. Reading these reviews is basically pointless because it's either extremely biased towards the bad or the good. Read it and make your own judgement, That being said I personally recommend this book, I like it way more then MGA or ATG or any of them. TJSS is great.

I honestly can't remember when I did drop out of this obe, it was neither early nor late point tho.

There's a barrage of reviews praising this novel to the heavens.

I disagree.

... more>> It is true that it has an interesting "cultivation" system, and it's good that MC is not another transmigrated underdog.

But the tale is mediocre, the pace is hasty, and what spoiled me this the most is the dumb, illogical, filthy idea that the rape-victims (using the second word based on other reviews, during the point I've reached it was one girl of such setting) would just fall for the guy, because.

It was the joy-kill for me, and I won't read it regardless how bored I'll get with my current handfull of up-to-dates.

The only reason it's not 1 star is that the background world was truly interesting. <<less

Nothing new here, MC is a snarky, cocky and arrogant fellow who justify his screw ups as being "possessed or just young and innocent (lol yeah right). I stopped a few chapters in after the r*pe arc when he kept a "souvenir" to remember what hes done. The excuses he gives for doing what he does is pitiful. This author always seem to make good introductions in whatever he writes, but they fall off to oblivion when it comes to everything else. His stories just doesn't hold my attention, and... more>> when it does I always facepalm at how stupid MC is. <<less

I don't know what you think about HJC. I don't know what you think about the related works SYWZ and DD.

But it gets better.

A lot better.

... more>> And it has much of the good parts of this author's other works without showing too much of the bad, thanks to the more heavy comedy/irony focus.

Furthermore, the various conflicts, while somewhat derivative/repetitive, actually changes over time. Which is nice. There is a bunch of "And then my boss's boss!" or "The faction above this level of faction!" going on, which is very stupid and plot-holey at times, but at the same time it's kind of acceptable the way he goes about it.

The worst thing about HJC (So far) is how everything seems to be "happily ever after" and tied up with a nice bow. There really isn't much organic villany.

But hey, we like marvel movies, no?

Basically, the most palatable Tang Jia San Shao novel. <<less

Update: Quick update now that I've finished the novel: the ending did drag on a little bit (~50 chapters) and the ending felt a bit axed. Still a solid, fun read.

A pretty fast paced story with a likeable MC and typical weak to strong story with a harem, not too many flaws with it.

One note about the translations, I was reading WuxiaWorld's translations when I saw qidian pick it up and get ahead so I hopped on that but holy crap that translation quality is awful, then seeing the author... more>> is also the editor (a huge red flag for any writing) it all made sense. Think I'll just start saving wuxiaworld translations to read in bulk rather than reading what looks like one tiny step about machine translated garbage. <<less

Among the many TJSS novels I've seen, this is my favourite. I find that TJSS spends way too much time on adolescent years and it hurts the reading experience.

HJC has many elements, there's the initial army arc, school arc, tournament arc, army arc again, and so on. But they never feel out of place and instead feel well planned. Motives of the MC are very clearly shown and the comedic elements make this a blast to read.

The translation quality is great, but I think the name should be Heavenly Pearl... more>> Transformation instead. I could barely believe this is the same author who wrote Child of Light. <<less

One of the most stable works from this awesome author. This guy here, which acts foolishly almost all the time, was the base for his most iconic character from Douluo Dalu, Tang. While we can complain a lot because this character acts very foolish, we forget that the most impressive main characters from other novels are either reborn after they made a lot of mistakes and died, or they are old enough to understand how important is to make the right decision at the right time. Read this novel, and... more>> later you will find out how he slowly matures. I only have, sadly, two complains addressed to this author, my first would be the pace which slows down quite a lot from the eight book, and the unbalance created by a character that was replaced with a more mature version of his instead of following a certain formula. Still, these are, in the end, acceptable flaws for any novel. We are readers in the end. I will give 5 stars towards this beautiful novel which is ranked between the 10 and 20 places in my top. <<less

I think its one of TJSS well balanced work as MC can be ruthless to his enemies while kind to his friends and he perverted in nature which makes some of best comic scene throughout the story. This has romance, action, comedy.

What more do you need from a story. So go give it a read.

Another TJSS novel that is worth to take note of. As in the case of other TJSS’s works world-building is interesting enough to get a reader an enjoyable experience of immersion. One of the most appealing points of the novel is that of character building of MC: he is a very enjoyable eccentric (and shameless to the LLS’s Yue Yang level), but is very realistic 13-year old MC. Although, some of reviews mentioned him to be spoiled, and MGA’s Chu Feng-ish, but in my understanding he seems to get much... more>> better character development, both in variety of his traits as well as their gradual changes along the story. Another point that is worth to mention that is toning down of overly powerful abilities and powers. Like the mention and evidence of that many factors aside from sheer level of cultivation do matter. Lastly, I would like to point out that despite having MC be “typical” self-centered xianxia character, at least at this point in the story it seems that development of his home country is of the important matter for him, unlike many other egoistic OP MCs out there.

Add in substantial amount of humor, as well as solid, but not over the board romance and this novel is definitely a material that is worth of attention.

I love this novel but I hate the inconsistency of the translation. Hopefully they can speed it up or at least make it regular. Otherwise, I don't understand why they don't let Qidian get this novel. Don't get me wrong, I'm not supporting anyone on this war betweens translators, but I want to read what I am into.

This novel deserves precisely a 3. And I say this as someone who enjoys a majority of this novel.

The only reason it's rated lower than it could be is because of 2 things, (1) it's harem and (2) the power structure.

First, let's talk of the harem. From the start I could bear through it, being someone who doesn't particularly favor novels that include harem, but as time went, it just got worse for me. And the moment...

the MC took in the sister of his fiance,

[collapse]
I had enough. The way the characters tend to fall in love with each other is simply not realistic. The interactions female characters and male characters have are not realistic. It bodes the question of where the author get's his ideas on what relationships are truly like. While it's true some of the characters are young and it may just be physical attraction that edges them on, some of their actions are a complete violation to their character.

In addition, the MC's harem seems to be all from the main powerful sects; and the inheritors of those main powers are always female.

In the end, if you think about it, women are treated as a joke in the novel. So many of them have 'unbelievable' bodies (and I quote) and the ones that don't clearly are thrown to the arms of those that are not the MC. Either that, or are made as terrible enemies of our character.

Second, is the power structure. The MC get's stronger way too fast. He has so many powers compared to everyone else, and before his other powers are even developed, he gets more. It's like, cheat after cheat comes his way. Just how big of a plot armor can a character have? And besides the physical pain he goes through, the character doesn't suffer many obstacles. You might say, he has suffered a lot in the novel. But if you really think about it, his action are the actions of what anyone who had desire would do in his position when it comes to gaining strength. Even the loss of the country he comes from, it seems he has the option of 'saving them all'. And saving them all, I mean, saving all that matter to him.

The primary things that save this story are the comedy, not the harem related comedy, but the rogue mentality it shows; the underdog situations, and the action! There is lot's of action, but not so much that it makes you feel as it's only action, and bores you to death like some other novels.

Seeing as how it all balances out, I rate this a 3. <<less

The most charismatic and clever MC. Don't doubt his plain innocent face. Therein hides a tiger (of course) *with a perverted look on its face* and a dragon strength (again) *with a perverted look on its face* that will bare its fangs only when our Zhou Little Fatty deems you a threat to his little beloveds.

Amazing fight scenes, very descriptive with unique system of power and cultivation.

This was a very good read, very different from loner MC who cultivate in silence and drinks pill in order to get stronger. This guy has some good to great EQ. Making him have great relationship with other people and make the harem seem believable. Although, the harem is the only major complaint I have as I'm not a fan of girls leaving him just because new girls need their time to shine.

What makes this novel quite good is the battle scenes. The author knows how to write fight scenes,... more>> not just the flashy super powered, light shows that most xianxia author does. There is motion, action, tactics, thinking, weight, that the author does so well.
The power progression too is not boring.

I wish the translation can be faster tho, as it's really a very enjoyable read. <<less

I gave this series a try as its author is well known and the series is fairly popular as well.

I confess that I haven't read all the translated chapters. I dropped the series few chapters after the r*pe scene. (Not a spoiler as this happens fairly early in the series). So new readers shouldn't really care for my review as I dropped it early. For this reason I won't rate the series as well.

Now I'm sure the fans of this series would defend the r*pe scene by saying that... more>> the MC was under the control of dark energy, and that the girl understood it so she kind of forgived him... Well, nope. My criticism isn't about the fact that MC raped a girl.

My criticism is about the dumb habit of chinese authors who use "rape" to establish a relationship between the main characters. When Chinese authors can't think of interesting way to make the main characters fall in love or establish a relationship between them they use "rape" to forcefully create a relationship. The girl would find that MC was her first so she would starting to fall in love with him... I just don't understand how could r*pe give rise to a potential romantic link? <<less

this series is deserve more than 4 star it currently has. Some update you see on your reading list you can ignore, because its better for that particular series to be read after accumulating more than 5 chapter. But this series is something you can enjoy for every part of it.

The MC is shameless to the roof top. That's what make this series so unique and funny >.<

This is one of my favorites. A lot of people will probably be ticked off by the r*pe tag however, small spoiler ahead:

Spoiler

Can it be called r*pe if he himself isn't even conscious?

[collapse]

You've probably read the basic formula before, trash MC awakens ultimate potential through deus ex machina. If you've read ISSTH, ATG, TDG, ED etc and have a kind of guilty pleasure associated with them you'll probably like this one. I even think this one is done a lot better for a few reasons.

First of all I like the MCs personality, he isn't arrogant for one, which I like. He loves to tease & flirt, and the writing in that department is actually pretty decent. In my opinion the romance side of the story therefor works comparatively well. It also makes for some funny situations when it backfires.

The characters overall are better than usual, you can usually guess who is saying what even without being told who has spoken.

Another good point is the fact that the characters do grow, this is especially true for the MC which matures a lot throughout the story so far.

The power system is a bit hard to grasp in the beginning, perhaps mostly due to poor explanation, but once you get a bit in it becomes clear and isn't that hard to understand. <<less

Not hating the novel but the author just keep explaining things that happened in the past chapters. For example the MC went to the skill storing pavilion to store a spatial attributed skill, in the next chapter while cultivating, the author would most likely talk about how he went to the pavilion to store that skill because he needs to make his power stronger blah blah blah. Like what? Of course he went there to make himself stronger, if not then what's the point? Not to mention raping someone gives... more>> birth to love? That's really what others called "f*cked up". I feel like the readers are treated like dumb people by the author. The further explanation isn't necessary. He went to a pavilion to store skills, common sense that he want to store more skills and improve his battle capability right? One of the worst TJSS novels IMO. TJSS just wanted to make the chapter longer using those fillers. No need to flame, this is a biased review I agree. <<less
