I Can Level Up By Staying Idle


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

Initially, Lin Mo intended to become stronger through cultivating diligently. However, he discovered that staying idle was more comfortable. Most importantly, he could level up by doing nothing! Since he could achieve his goals by lying idle, why would he trouble himself to stand and work?

Lin Mo transmigrated to a martial arts world and realized that he had no talent in cultivating at all. Fortunately, he awakened the Idle Upgrade System. He could become stronger by staying away from the rat race and enjoying life.

Lin Mo lamented, “It’s not that I don’t want to work hard, but truly, there is no opportunity for me to do so.” As such, the most bizarre Martial Arts Saint in human history was born.

Could of been pretty decent B-tier novel, wish fulfillment & power fantasy style, but author way overplayed his hand by inserting his crappy sense of humor in great excess. First few times when the MC's generic friend, Fatty A, went to visit brothels and spoke about the tales of the MC to the whores it was still slightly funny, but unfortunately it just developed into a pattern in this book. Basically MC will do nothing and his "friends" who do literally nothing but mooch off him will go visit the... more>> "big sword" (as in prostit**es) and then they will get caught. I stopped counting after it happened like 5 times.

Then there's the whole "involuting" gag where people seemingly misunderstand that MC is training super hard, or something, when he's really just sitting and idling, maybe fishing. It turned into a so big thing in this book that it very much so stopped being funny. It wasn't just a misunderstanding anymore that could be played off as comedy, it's basically religious mantra now.

Still, its kind of leagues above the average Webnovel pushes out now days. So I'll be fair and give it a three. <<less

Bro... It’s fun and all, but there’s one thing I hate. When the protagonist hides their power for too long. I understand if they’re going undercover and all, but the MC isn’t doing anything. I understand he doesn’t need to explain himself, but the college entrance examinations have already finished, and his second identity still hasn’t been found out. Author made the MC s*upid for a second and made him do something to prevent a clue from leaking out, so we’re sticking with this for who knows how long. It’s... more>> just so excruciating. Just give me the payoff already, don’t make me wait in agony. Honestly, some people might like a smart and cunning MC who hides his powers and grows strong silently but to me, I can’t find any enjoyment in that. It’s just complete bs. It’s no fun to hide your strength, especially in a novel meant to be fun. Sure, he would probably get chased by some assassins but that’s the fun part, the fighting. The face slapping so far has only been subpar because it’s only small slaps that don’t even give the MC any fame. Also, since there’s no romance tag, and I see one decent girl, I suppose it won’t work out there. This is an interstellar novel too, so I can only wonder when the MC will be fully unleashed.

tl;dr MC’s first strength hiding arc lasts 100 chapters or so, and when he does the big reveal, not even everything is revealed. The feeling of holding something back in a supposed payoff moment is not fun. There is no romance tag, although I do see a big opportunity to expand more into characters and romance with this kind of system, so f*ck me if I like romance ig. The action also subpar as MC is still not doing much intense fighting. <<less
