Baseless discriminatory storylines and characters. Korean people should sue this writer for defamation. I would understand if the writer at least did his homework on Korean people and language but alas - the names are all not proper Korean and the words are obviously google-translated. This just signifies that the writer has a blind prejudice against the Korean people, which is in all, disturbing.

There is literally no moral to the story - morals as in ethics and values upheld by societies. The protagonist s*xually assaults women without consent, and the... more>> writer depicts these females as though they're just toys for the protagonist. It was terrifying to read, realising that on the other side of the world there are people with such perverted imaginations.

It started off fun, but it took me to a black hole of immorality and prejudice. If you have at least an ounce of humanity, you would not read nor translate this "nationalistic" mess. It promotes hate-speech anf objectification of women. <<less

I really like this novel and found it fun at the start. But then it turn into a pretty questionable novel. I'm fine with racism if it is in work of fiction and it has something to do with the plot. But the author just keep hating on every race and glorifies china. It get to the point that event though it is fun to read you cannot read anymore as it makes you cringe with all these political stuff. I read some spoiler and it turns out that it... more>> will be a reoccurring theme so I guess I'm putting this book into the imaginary online bin. <<less

If you're okay with weird almost rapey scenes this is the story for you. The stories hilarious. The MC's incompetent and untalented but gets the job done. Still he's a giant perv and it's very hard to like him. The love interests are annoying and either lie themselves to death (for no reason) or have mouths full of angry wasps. His mother is irritating (I still kind of like her but some people can't stand her). His little sisters and cousin are even worse than his mother (I hate whenever... more>> they show up). The few girls that actually have a good personality are just background characters. MC is kinda racist and hypocritical. I heard it gets worse as you go further along. I don't mind the repetitiveness or plagiarism but sometimes the characters are so unlikable that I can't stand it. And worse is that half the time I can't stand the MC because he can't keep his filthy untalented worthless hands to himself.

I might give up on this story. Read at you're own risk. Who knows you might be one of the rare one's who doesn't mind the things I just complained about. <<less

If you are someone who likes to read up on Chinese culture, this is one novel that is for you. It has episodes which contain popular literary texts, music and variety shows and probably a lot more... it's also a good novel to read if you would like to know more about Chinese influences as well.

Highly recommended as Zhang Ye (the MC) is an interesting guy who has a frank view of things. He is able to solve problems with his "power of luck" and the situations he finds... more>> himself in and gets himself out of can be funny and touching. The touch of romance in this novel is not over done and unlike most novels, romance is not a key here and author does a fine job of weaving all the great works of all time into one fantastic story.

Review based on reading until Chapter 1290. =) <<less

It was enjoyable it for the first 200 chapters or so, but I've reached a point where I'm just done. The main character is completely unlikeable. He's someone who never actually works himself and has no talent so speak of. He has no likeable traits. He's arrogant, meanspirited, childish, extremely rapey and a complete and utter moron who'll burn all bridges he has simply because someone was a bit mean to him and he decided to throw a tantrum.

In the beginning the humour and writing can be considered pretty... more>> funny, as it is something original. But at this point, it only makes me groan whenever it makes an attempt at humour.

I would have given it one star had not been decent for a while. <<less

What I like:
1. Unique focus (fame, television, radio, literature, etc.)
2. The lottery is fun
3. The early arcs are clever and full of difficulties that the MC has to actually use his brain (in addition to his powers) to solve

What I dislike:
1. The harem that is forming/the lecherous personality development of the MC
2. The xenophobia/racism of the MC (really the author)
3. Around Chapter 150 I got bored, the arcs become repetitive, everything is predictable
4. Mentioned this already, but the ridiculous s*x-crazed MC... more>> (which is kind of what he's become by Chapter 352) is annoying, weird, and at times perturbing. There are some borderline rapey scenes (not like GDW, but still not something I'd be comfortable with IRL). <<less

I simply clicked this because I saw it being uploaded non-stop yesterday. After reading a few chapters I was hooked!

Imagine you life suddenly got a patch update and you begin a game to achieve your dreams!

Lots of laughter and the poems are quite inspiring as I have not been exposed much to Chinese literature.

This novel is about as repetitive as "library of heaven's path", but without that special thing that somehow makes it interesting and funny nonetheless, the writing is quite inferior and it's just boring to read all the copy-paste text. First of all, reading a novel by a chinese author set in modern day society is never a good idea, the novel is full of blatant racism and excessive patriotism. I usually don't give a crap when the authors show some small bits of their shining patriotism, like ignorant statements in... more>> xianxia novels or other things, and I can ignore quite a lot, but this author goes on a rampage against people that aren't from china. I guess, in his eyes, everyone but the chinese people are inferior humans that deserve to be insulted as he rants on with ignorance to an extent that is unbelievable, he's probably trying to make up for an inferiority complex or something. That people are actually translating this perfect example of a waste of time is beyond me. <<less

First of all, I've been one of the many anonymous daily readers here at NU for the last four years, Regular as in Daily, and in all these years I've never once commented on ANYTHING. Whether I liked it out not. So this makes my first time posting a review.

This novel is freakishly awesome. Palgarizing crime made to look cute. I'm no lawyer so whatever. It starts of OK, with MC palgarizing stuff from parallel world to fight against his fate, then for his fans and so on. It picks... more>> up momentum with the MC turning smarter and better. And then it's the chance for Ying. As if changing Authors, or author having faced something life changing in RL, it turns into a story where the MC becomes a Hot Head and Extremely Patriotic (as in Overbearingly) and gets into fights with every possible Non Chinese.


A guy who could take care of a plane full of terrorists is unable to outargue a couple of Japanese professors and resorts to such a method, picking fight with EVERY NON-'C' national person is a bit of a let down


The most Astonishing and Fear inducing thing is the Author's ability to make the reader himself justify for the MC, even for the most Degradatory work done by him. Anyone binge reading the novel won't find anything out of the ordinary. But try and stop reading after reaching Ch. 700 for a couple days and then start again. You'll see what most people mean about this story bring a let down. All of this is the reason for my 1 star rating. Oh!! And here's to hoping that my profile doesn't get hacked. XD <<less

IRAS is a fun read, but it is ruined by three factors that surpassed the positive aspects.

First, I know most Chinese webnovels doubt the MC, no matter how many times he accomplishes certain actions. However, other webnovels usually have an ancient set-up with no mass communication or internet. IRAS is set in modern times and the mc's accomplishments is known to most of China, and maybe the world. After succeeding for the umpteenth time in a different field, the MC has many doubters. For example, he writes (plagiarizes) poems, novels,... more>> short stories, essays, etc., but the literary world doubts him.

Second is the creepy groping of women, especially when he thinks they are asleep. I understand the MC is a virgin, but he does not try to seduce the women, but creepily gropes them. Any luck with women is with the help of his cheat.

Lastly, and the worst offender is the hypocritical nationalism. His own government, media and "experts" are the ones that have been suppressing the MC. The MC talks about China this, China that and how he is justice for the Chinese people, and foreigners are scumbags. Yet, he has no problem driving foreign cars, using foreign phones, plagiarizing foreign works, etc. Then he uses the achievements of foreigners in his previous world, and uses them as Chinese achievements, like the mathematical theorem he "solved." The author specially makes fun of South Koreans, how arrogant and stupid they are. However, the author had the MC beat a difficult game that was beating (once) by a South Korean in the real world, not Chinese. It is okay to be nationalistic, but try not to steal achievements from non-Chinese and claim them has Chinese. <<less

This is a sh*tty novel, and I'll tell you why.
... more>>

1. The MC is f**ked up. He has childish personality and constantly harrasses people around. For examaple, there is this one time when his landlord let him sleep with her, I repeat, it's sleep, not s*x. (I honestly don't know why.) But he still s*xually harrassed her anyway, 'cuz reasons, the worse part is that she even let him do it.

Another example is when he beat up that Korean popstar for no reason. Sure he pushed his fan, making her fall, but that's quite normal given how enthusiastic she was. (I mean c'mon, they're K-Pop fans, and most K-pop fans are like that.) Not only did he not apologize, he even said the guy deserved it?!! I'm even more surprised that the police did not arrest him for that, I mean he literally beat anotehr celebrity up in front of the press, if this was real life, his career would have been screwed!

2. Once again, he's a horriblr person, not for his childish personality but his entire career. He literally just steals other people's works, and that's f**ked up.

3. This novel is to stroke Chinese already sky-high self-esteem. It always paints foreigers in a very very bad light.

4. Overused plot, I can tell you the whole story. MC went somewhere > Got famous > Got defamed by his own company..? (What the f**k?) > He quit his job > And repeat. Sometime they throw in stuff like his fans defending him, but if you really thought about it, they're pretty much defending a racist, s*xist, childish asshole that doesn't deserve their affection at all.

5. Too damn long, same old overused plot but over one thousand f**king chapters?!! The author seriously needs to stop milking this sh*t since it has already used up all of its potential, the only people who give this a high-rating are mostly Chinese with very very stupid view of patriot.

A world with different system than our own. All the great masters work gone?

Don't worry, they'll see the light for the sake of my popularity stakes *cough* I mean for the sake my respect to them, let me borrow them for ya. This is not plaigarism, okay?

This novel is a reaction paper. Want to know Zhang Ye's amaze+ (awe) someness? Hehe. Wait for those shock expression of disbelief and idolatry each time he does his trick.

It had the most descriptive and exciting story. You'll be moved to tears of... more>> hilarity by his cleverness and antics. <<less

*Biased Review of mine*

The Novel is Very Well Written by the Author in terms of Pacing and the Characterization and includes all the facts of the story, which involves Piracy Works of poems/rhymes/songs/etc. Of MC's Old World in the New and a petty MC with a huge Cheat.

The Author keeps repeating the fact that the works which are submitted by the MC are the works of famous persons and not giving it face, is similar to not giving the famous persons of the old world face. It just skips... more>> the fact where the MC himself says that he does not understand most of what he is saying and only knows when to use it. So? What that means is that the MC is building his base to Stardom based on others hard work and he himself Does Not have the Required Talent. If he gets in a hard spot, he just uses a very useful lottery system luck token to avoid it and not use any of his own skill or something he can do by himself.

Though the antagonists are very realistic. There are good guys and bad guys as well, but most are looking out for their own people and try to screw the rest of them.

This is a very unrealistic and biased towards MC with his cheat skills novel in a very realistic world.

These things are the facts from what I observed reading up to the current chapters. These may change in the future and maybe the MC can try hard to reach his goals and not just depend on the cheat skill, but that would mean this Novel lost its meaning and theme.

TL;DR: Read it for the satisfaction of where a normal guy gets his dream come true presented in a very comedic undertone using cheat skills. I'd give it a lesser rating, but like I said; the Author does what he does the best. <<less

Let's be honest.

This is a pretty well written but generic "Climb to the top", "Showbiz", "office drama" kind of story. It's the cross between those "female professional" potboiler romance novels and the "Semi-comedic Xuanhuan" genre, with the interesting twist taking the usual setting of the first and applying the mechanics and tone of the second.

There are clear mechanical problems with the writing, and it's clear that the author's pacing is pretty much off. Reasonable conflict/protagonist character arc/growth clearly is also a major letdown, but that's expected in this kind of... more>> genre. (At least it isn't over the top escalation all the time, which is why I'll cut it some slack there).

The Translation is quite good, managing to convey the jokes/puns quite well. This should be applauded as the novel doesn't work without them!

I'm sure all of my comments make me seem kind of down on this novel. And it's true. If judging it like fine literature or as a cohesive story I wouldn't give this more than 3 stars.

But the Author is basically like a Chinese Deadpool. This is a series you should read for the author's side comments, 4th wall breaking, and shenanigans alone.

The author sets out to have a lighthearted comedy and he pretty hits it spot on. For that, 4 stars. <<less

A very good comedy and slice of life with gamer's ring to add to the fun. Even though I don't have much to say I felt this needed an objective review, as it is not pure comedy or the best comedy as those 5 star reviews say. I did say very good but not excellent, with art˛& entertainment going on for thousands of years, especially the boon of 20th century, it's not so easy to earn a perfect score. Also I'm impressed with the translation speed which kept me reading... more>> all night as I tried to keep up.

Edit: reduced from 4 to 3 stars due to creepy hentai weird chapters the MC has with several ladies instead of romance (no s*x though)
Edit: don't be fooled into reading this, it starts great but gets old real quick and real... repetitive - xianxia like. It goes like this, what can a kid still wet behind his ears now about poetry, then he proves to be the best fking poet in the world (by plagiarizing), then the same thing with composing music, lyrics, writing caligraphy, kung fu, writing novels... Also the romance is horrible, MC is trying to get a few women (he is still a virgin) and he manages to do some weird asian creepy fetish things. Example - he is aroused by being locked in toilet stall with a woman peeing who also has her period (btw he peed on her in another toilet before that by accident). That's an execption though, usually he just gropes them for a few min before they turn him down.

3rd Edit: I was just reading someones really long review with 199 likes, I'm am the 200th liker! woo hooo, anyway it said this is a propaganda and when I thought about it, it really is. This nationalistic novel makes all foreigners look bad, Koreans, Japs, whites and blacks. Some of you will say, but they were utter dipsh*ts and Zhang Ye gave them righteous face smacking, but think of this way, this racist nationalistic Author made those situations intentionally hence propaganda, same as in God and Devil World. <<less

Seriously! Such a waste. It was so good until around chapter 700 where MC starts to act like he is representative of his country and insults Japanese representative for no grudge at all.

Why the hell do you care about the people Japanese killed 30 years ago in some war. I mean MC has no connection whatsoever with that war. Heck he wasn't even born that time.

Although its disappointing but you can try a good read till the sino Korean hacker warfare arc.

Random Char#1: Shocked at MC's awesome plagiarism!

Random Char#2: Too Shocked at MC's awesome plagiarism!

Random Char#3: Jizzing everywhere 'cause MC's plagiarism is too epic!

... more>> Repeat... repeat... repeat...

Welcome to I'm Really a Plagiarist, where our lead plagiarist Zhang Ye poses to no end and talks in poems just to show you that yes, he can plagiarize at any moment or time of the day.

Oh my! Plagiarism you say? Well, what did you expect my friend, intellectual conquest of the world? Daring pioneering?

No! Never! How dare you expect anything beyond factory produced cheap gimmicks and posturing! This is some REAL made in China sh*t right here boy! -spits to the side-

Cheating game elements are outdated in these modern times, so we must go beyond tradition and seek new ways to greatness! By ripping off history from one world and using it in a -gasp- parallel world that's almost exactly the same except everything can be improved on! (with some plagiarizing). Oh, don't forget the super convenient gaming cheats. Up down down right up f**k this sh*t.

Oops language.

The core point of the story is the MC using someone else's work to bullsh*t his way to fame. This little unpleasant tidbit is usually covered up by an extra large dosing of "patriotism" mixed with the occasional happy racism, and some other distractions involving misrepresented romance, comedy, etcetera. Lots and lots of bashing included.

Sure it's bearable up to this point. And I gotta say in advance, the story really should have focused on the humor aspect, instead of what it's doing now. It was comedy gold at one point, or so I like to think.

What makes it all so sickening is that the MC, as of recent chapters, is so empty of character apart from pure aggression and holy sh*t forced patriotism. MC = "I can't stand for unfairness so I'll smash you!" plus "I'm all for the people!" multiplied by "I wanna be famous as hell!".

I mean, I get it. Really I do. Catharsis is great, nothing wrong with that. Man do I like me some of that fapping release. But this gets to the point where the MC figuratively wanders around everywhere with his pants off and the plot is always set up to send trouble his way just so he can piss on it and plagiarize a poem in the aftermath.

The only saving grace is, or was, the comedy... which is turning stale. As of the recent chapters, I don't see the point of reading further because the storyline's been on the same ongoing trend for a while now and no signs of it breaking. Fun while it lasted I guess?

But yeah I totally recommend this. Maybe. <<less
