Monster Paradise

Description

800 years ago, 3000 dimensional gates opened across the entire world. In that moment, it was as if 3000 different colored eyes opened across the world as hordes of monsters swarmed out of these gates like tears.

Some could destroy city walls with one strike; They had bodies the size of a giant and fed on humans

Some latched onto humans, absorbing their bodies’ nutrients and enslaving humans

Some infiltrated the humans’ cities, disguising themselves as normal human beings while feeding upon human blood to sustain themselves.

In a night, the Human race fell to the bottom of the food chain.

The world had turned into a paradise for monsters…

A three because it's honest a decent summoner novel. So far almost every summon has some screen time, battle are one to four chapters.

While it's quite good, it has a lot of info dumps about the monster the MC is going to fight and makes the fight sometimes extreme boring. Another down is that MC has... way too many plot armor scenes. Some important info aren't properly explained and sometimes mention late into the story. The story also focuses a lot more on him cultivating and battling by himself.

But the... more>> story is interesting and if you like having a summoner MC then this is a good choice to read <<less

Very shoddily translated.

MC gets transported to another world, but it's one of those transfer MCs where you question why they even bothered since none of his thoughts are ideas are from Earth except when he thinks to himself "this system is like the card game I used to play." Wait, I almost forgot, he also thought to himself, "Oh, this is just like the webnovels I read on Qidian". MC gets a gacha card "system" with pretty absurdly strong powers, which is fine. MC proceeds to use it very poorly,... more>> which is less fine.

World in general is what I call "low-intelligence worlds", where a moron from Earth is a genius in this world. MC hailed as a genius for having mediocre ideas. Note that this is despite the world being seemingly at least equal to Earth in technology along with a large variety of "system" magic and magic tools.

And it gets worse. Characters are needlessly wasteful of resources and lives. Characters are randomly cruel or self-centered in ways that normally don't survive 8th grade, and this includes the MC. Character personalities are completely inconsistent, and so far his life and powerups are a series of random encounters that has essentially no input by the character or supporting characters having any persistent, reasonable motivation. The world and its people seemingly only exist for the MC to do his thing, but the MC doesn't have a thing to do. He sort of had an immediate motivation in that his life bar was set at ~60 days at the start,

Spoiler

but that got solved partially without him trying because it turns out his system gives him like a year of life just for killing one bottom-tier monster and then it gets solved completely without him trying because of a random encounter was like "hey thanks for doing this thing that you did with no effort, btw, I am actually a god and I fixed your supposedly unsolvable problem without you asking me to"

[collapse]

But worst of all is the nonsensical things that happen. I would call it a plot, but that's an insult to actual plots

Example:

Spoiler

MC's temporary boss/high ranker/harem candidate tells him not to let anyone leave town because it might be too dangerous. Random low-tier noob says she wants to leave anyway. MC pulls out a gun and points it at her head and tells her he'll kill her if she leaves. Like seriously, out of nowhere. He could have just said, "hey, the gold-ranker says you can't leave because there are monsters roaming outside" but naw, straight to gun-in-face. Keep in mind this isn't some grimdark fantasy, this is a hyper-modern world where there's supposed to be rule of law. Our MC is a psychopath, but it gets worse.

Random bozo tries to stick up for the girl and say the MC is being unreasonable, which is what every halfway sane person in the room is probably also thinking. Not our MC! Our MC displays his genius thinking to himself "Huuuuh, why is this guy I can easily kill trying to stop me. Gosh, I know I'm not wrong so...I know! This random bozo must be doing this because she's pretty" and spends like a minute patting himself on the back that he isn't swayed by pretty faces like everyone else. Author makes it clear he's also proud his MC isn't, the chapter title is 100% for real titled "What's Being Kind to Women?".

We never get to find out what MC is going to do to them because, suddenly, for no reason at all, random mid-boss antagonist who has been harassing MC (and other people) jumps in to start a fight against MC, not because of the girl but because he wants to pick on MC. They look like they're going to get in a fight. Mid-boss is definitely stronger than him, he literally beat MC like yesterday and let him go because "you're so weak you're not worth killing." Which is a classic mid-boss line, except only about two chapters before the author established the only reason he's here is because he's uh, here to kill people he thinks are weak. Riiiiight.

MC doesn't back down, because I don't know, being a dumbass threatening some random girl with shooting her in the face so she doesn't endanger herself is more important than his own life, which is all so stupid I can barely breathe. Fortunately, they're suddenly interrupted by random bullsh*t and everybody forgets what they were doing. In the ensuing few days MC exerts his dominance by beating up sh*t-tier background characters with no names and doesn't let anyone leave.

Somehow, this makes people trusting and admiring of him, which is important because he's about to lead a squad into battle because his boss/harem candidate thought all that previous bullsh*t was genius work by him. A couple of chapters later he declares he's going to stay and defend the town from monsters despite being having a power rating of effectively zero when there are literally a thousand other super-powered high level humans running around. Tens of thousands of years of combat experience between all of them, and somehow MC is piping up with his sh*t-tier ideas and people are calling it genius. It also feels super weird because our MC has been relatively focused on himself and his sister so far, and this is the first hint that he gives a sh*t about anybody else, yet he's suddenly burning with self-sacrificial desire.

Not long after, it turns out this was a tremendously stupid idea (which more experienced people than him told him at least three times, but he ignored because he's dumb) and he's going to die, 100%, no take-backsies. Just then he gets a system notification: Would you like to get your get-out-of-jail-free card I didn't tell you about and you didn't know you had? He's like: "sure". And then the magic wish automatically determines how to get him out of the situation with no input from him, and kills millions of monsters with a nuke that only hits bad guys and instakills everyone but the boss, and saves the day. No, I'm not joking or exaggerating in the least.

But wait, it didn't kill the boss. Boss appears and says, haha, you humans are so dumb, Superman-Goku Macguffin the 3rd isn't coming to save you, Superman is a dumbo and is fighting my sekret clone. By the way, I'm going to kill all of you, especially you MC. Suddenly, harem candidate goes, "Wait boss monster, can you please give me 3 minutes to confess my love for MC? Pleaaase? Pretty pleeaaase?" Boss monster goes: "Okay, sounds fine with me, but don't doublecross me or I'm gonna like, kill you. Uh, I guess I'm gonna kill you anyway but I'll like really super duper kill you or something", and he goes to sit in the corner and jacks off for awhile.

Harem-candidates grabs MC, and then is like, "omgersh boss monster, you so dumb!" and then she pushes through MC through a portal while boss monster is distracted. Staring at the portal he goes, "How dare you lie to me!" "Curse you humans and your predictable yet inevitable betrayal!" "It's a good thing you were too dumb to take your own portal, now I'm going to kill you even harder!"

But then she goes "Wait, let me give a dying speech. Okay, still giving a dying speech. man, why am I not dead yet? Guess I'll speech some more. Also, it's sort of weird that I pushed MC through the portal and stayed behind but he's still here but oh well, if the author's not paying attention why should I? MC even though I met you like last week and we've literally never had a conversation, you are the most amazing man ever and I love you."

Boss monster: "That's great, I'm gonna kill you now."

POW! Suddenly the goddess our delightful MC met last week in yet another random encounter roll after feeding a squirrel who turned out to be a immortal god-beast who was the pet of the goddess back in the day so he was like, how about I show you her corpse and then just because MC is MC the goddess came back to life from him getting a plot boner or something and was like "Oh hey MC, we're soulmates and I love you. Please ignore my irrelevant background story which makes it seem like I should vengefully kill all humans." Anyway. Goddess shows up and her pet squirrel smacks boss monster to death with a single slap. Actual Deus ex Machina. It's not every day you get a god to solve your unsolvable problems. Unless you're the MC. Anyhow, Goddess says, "BTW MC, since we killed a immortal super boss monster, why don't you take its soul. You can raise it as a soul pet and get super powers you didn't work for, again, just like the time you became a grandmaster in a sword technique that takes a lifetime of effort to learn by watching me make tea."

MC: "Huuuh? Oh, okay. Oh yeah, goddess, can you help save this harem candidate who I met last week?" "long as you're here doing miracles, y'know?"

Goddess: "No, that is impossible... unless I had a boss monster soul or something like that, but those are pretty rare and it's not like we just have those lying around." "Oh whoa, it turns out there's a boss monster soul I just gave you. But are you sure you want to give it up? You worked so hard for it. Oh wait, no you didn't I just showed up and gave it to you."

MC: "uh, sure, yeah, whatever G-dog"

Goddess: "haha, just playing, I don't need the monster soul after all. It'd be too much of a pain in the ass to write another monster in...I mean, I don't need one because I got others. Despite me being dead for the last thousand years or whatever" "Bippity-boppity-boo! This girl is alive! But hey we're still gonna get it on at some unspecified later date when you're a god through remarkable happenstance, right?" "also, the girl is super mega powerful now cuz I put a god-beast in her. The soul I gave her was like a super rare Phoenix soul I just had lying around."

MC: "Yay!"

Warning, contains spoilers up to chapter 40.

... more>>
Spoiler

After reading the first couple of chapters I was really intrigued. The author sets up the novel as if the main character was in one of those Japanese, card-collecting mobile games. He can get cards from the monsters he kills, gain skills from the cards, fuse different cards together, combine fragments into cards, etc. It also has a system that reminds me of Absolute Choice, where he is assigned various missions from the "system".

Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, it could have been, but it was poorly executed.

The author drops you into the world with zero background info on the main character as most reincarnation stories do. He was just some random, unimportant dude who got transported into someone else's body due to some weird phone app. "Fortunately" he retains 98% of the host's memories so he naturally knows everything the genius host knows about monsters and the new world. Plus, he is super protective of his new sister to the point where he would fight a vampire to protect her. Let's not forget to mention the awesome combat skills he mysteriously has.

That aside, he does have one flaw. His "life wheel" if injured and he is due to die in 90 days or so. Awesome! Now we can see him struggle. Oh wait, nevermind. Anything his minions kill extend his longevity so he ends up extending his life by 8 years in the span of 1 chapter.

However, if he doesn't complete the missions given by the system, his blessing will disappear and he'll die from it anyways. That makes sense, the character does mention how awful his luck is after all. Well, no, his luck is actually phenomenal.

He's poor! Some random guy gives him an expensive life crystal and renovates his house.

He doesn't have an attack skill! Fortunately some random guy teaches one to him under the orders of some mysterious benefactor.

He used the SOS beacon so he should be disqualified from the trial! Good thing he's a super duper important beastmaster.

His life wheel is still injured! Some powerful yeti uses his blood to revive a sleeping deity and she heals him in 2 seconds as thanks.

Seriously? He has the audacity to try and say his luck is poor?

All these points aside, I truly enjoyed the story up until chapter 39. On chapter 39 the MC finds out there is a dangerous monster in the area and that he needs to stop people from leaving the hotel to prevent widespread panic.

Sounds simple enough, except that when a girl tries to leave he points his pistol at her head and threatens to kill her. Fortunately a couple people try to protect the girl, but they're painted as the bad guys because they have ulterior motives and aren't the MC.

The instructor eventually arrives and settles things by claiming the MC made the right decision and trying to get the other party to apologize to him.

I dropped it at that point.

I rarely review but this is a must. The translator updated this novel pretty fast.. But the problem lied on the author.

The MC was coddled by the author. Like that Arryn boy from GoT, still breast feeding when he should've stopped years ago. MC never struggled even once. First accident he escaped, I was happy that he got a power. I love OP. But then it got to the point of.. He got everything in his lap. Just like that.

Spoiler

"I've been attacked by a vampire!" - vampire became his slave, ok that's cool.

"I need to get stronger!" - some guy let MC copied his sword technique.

"My house is ruined.." - it got a makeover.

"Birds chased me." - sent a distress signal (which is ok but..) and then stayed at the hotel before going back out.

"I can die any moment now because I'm born unlucky" - a girl out of nowhere healed his one flaw (which made him unique btw)

"I'm just watching her make tea.." - BAM! He learned all the sword technique wtf.

"Oh my god, some boss will attack us please hear me out!" - upper rank guy just trusted him and gave him a team to lead (the no rank MC).

"Wah I'm being attacked!" - I'm not really reading seriously by this point but I think he got a bomb card for 10k something radius. Boom. Problem solved.

"Hot examiner almost died because of me." - the same girl came and helped him save the woman.

[collapse]

I stopped reading after that. No more.

MC was a big baby not an OP MC. The author was his mommy. MC wanted to eat, author will chew and spat the food for MC (MC didn't have to use his perfectly good teeth). MC wanted to poop, author opened MC's butthole for him. That's how bad this novel was. Don't know how this was number 3 in qidian. <<less

Wtf is with this novel? Nothing is explained. What is a life wheel? What is gold finger? Who the f*ck is xiao hei or something? Exactly how did he come to this world? What is this world? What exactly are the monsters? How do the cards work? Only some of the system is explained.

This could have been a good novel but the author ruined it by not explaining stuff. Sure I wont want to read a whole bunch of dry information. But I sure as hell wont read something which... more>> give absolutely no info either <<less

Look for Sinai's review. It is on point.

Continuing on from his review, the author also forgets to end the first mission (everything Sinai mentioned pretty much), so he uses some cards afterwards and I guess it is supposed to be assumed that they were from the mission rewards, since it was never officially ended.

I don't mind the novel, but you can only ignore so many plot holes.

The previous owner of his body has a sister and he spends so much time talking about her (even went on a vacation with... more>> her) yet it never explains why he cares about her so much. Since it isn't his actual sister.

Spoiler

On the vacation the sister gets kidnapped and he spends a few chaps looking or her. Then He kills the kidnapper, who happens to be the child of an underworld character who sends transcendent Assassin after him. Who gets blocked by another transcendent from a girl's family he saved.

[collapse]

idk. I don't mind it so much yet but the story is mediocre.

Edit: Look at readfeathersg review and know that it gets even worse.

Spoiler

"I got kidnapped by the strongest criminal organization (in the world) and am sent to a training camp where I literally have ALL things that I need to get stronger. I must escape." -oh cool! I get ten free random cards, one of which just happens to be an OP literal get out of jail card that can fool even transcendents.

[collapse]

I also forgot to mention that the world is a low-intelligence world. Meaning that everyone thinks the MC is a genius because only he sees obvious and says the obvious (at least to me). He literally says a completely obvious startegic plan that group of thousands of people, with literally (not figuratively) tens of thousands of years of fighting experience, didn't consider. Then they all said how he was a genius. I bothered me。 <<less

First let me say the series description is rather poor since the series takes place LONG after humanity has already adjusted to living in a world of monsters and the initial invasion is nothing more than a minor backstory. This series so far is interesting and has potential. It's got typical elements of chinese novels like cultivation but a few twists. First off cultivation in this world is done by absorbing life crystals which may or may not drop when monsters are killed. Meaning there aren't any pills or centuries... more>> of cultivation. To cultivate you just have to either be REALLY good at killing things or have enough money to buy crystals from those that did gather them. Additionally the MC has a special divine blessing that allows him to just absorbe energy directly from ANY monster killed by a monster he controls. The way he obtains monsters to control and strengthens them is VERY video game esque but it's done in a way that doesn't feel too unnatural. One of the strong points of this series is it's MC who is a refreshing change of pace from most chinese MC in that he's not a ruthless killing machine.
Spoiler

Early on he runs into conflict with a spoiled noble and his followers. It goes about as you might expect for a chinese novel until the noble proves he's shockingly smart and actually offers a treasure as an apology the moment the MC shows his strength. One of his followers doesn't take the hint and tries to continue the fight but the MC only half kills and threatens him and then lets him go after looting him.
If this was ANY other chinese novel chances are their MC would have slaughtered the lot of them.

[collapse]

To those wishing to avoid spoilers I'll just say seeing an MC who isn't a wimp but also not a psychotic madman is refreshing. Another thing that is refreshing is it's use of modern weaponry and technology. Most chinese novels tend to look down on science and technology and act like science is nothing more than an obstacle to true power through cultivation and true comprehension and all that nonsense. The series progresses at a pretty decent pace with the MC going through various battles, getting various power ups, ect. Overall it's fairly standard for a chinese web novel but it does have some elements that let it stand well enough as it's own thing like the monster taming aspect, the MC's tactics to getting out of situations, and even some of the fights and powers are pretty interesting. <<less

I started reading it because of such high votes in daily voting system and then 3rd in power ranking. But man was I disappointed. This web novel has serious issues with plot armor and plot holes that it just ridiculous. I normally am an easy going reader and normally ignore such inconsistencies, but here its borderline insanity. Whatever MC wants he gets it by random event within next few pages. Also maybe this is specialty of this Monster World that MC was ported to but everyone there is so DUMB,... more>> don't want to get into details else it will involve spoilers. Also character depth is almost nil with everyone else except MC are simply one dimensional. Last but not the least translation quality is sub par with so many mistakes but that can be overlooked as translators are releasing at such a fast pace. My advise do yourself a favor and stay away from this one or you will also start doubting the ranking on Qidian (like me), thinking that maybe they are rigged as there is no way that such poor quality work can be ranked 3rd. <<less

I will have to say it is a good story. The initial confusion of the story seem come out of nowhere with no explanation at chapter 1 is because the translator didn't put in the prologue/ introduction chapter from the original web novel and directly goes to chapter one. Google the chinese name of this novel and u will find the web version.

Short conclusion of the prologue chapter : Main character (most likely from modern world same timeline as now) playing card collection game for 6 month and spending... more>> ten thousand of his currency only to fail to obtain most rare card category ingame Super super rare (SSR) and in a fit delete the game from his Iphone 7. Once deleted the app, his phone keep popping out what he assume to be advertisement/virus game pop up on his phone that refuse to goes away. He has no choice but play along with the pop up and term and condition that state game has a high chance of death (73%) and he accept it. In next page a wheel of fate with start stop button of 12 selection (goldfinger) and he spin it (seem no different of all 12) once it stop a flash of light goes from the phone to his head. Finally, the pop up state the start of the game and he just vanish from his world with his phone smash to the pavement.

Hope this reduce the confusion of most reader here and darn EndlessFantasy Translation pick up your game and add in the prologue. For those wanna read the prologue now with google translation here the link http://www. Uukanshu. Net/b/54171/16253. Html <<less

This story has a rather interesting concept, it combines the seemingly FOTM reincarnation archetype with a card gacha system of sorts seen in most mobile games now as well as some mission type reminiscent of Absolute Choice. I found myself oddly attracted to it the first couple of chapters, however as I read on it became apparent that it suffers from the disease many other novels on this site do. The Extremely poor world building in addition to a lack-luster plot. The Mc/Author (It's hard to track at this point,... more>> it feels like one and the same) lives in a apocalyptic world filled with monsters forcing the humanity to live in strongholds ranked from A to D according to their population or something as it hasn't been explained yet. We get no concept of time/period or location the MC is, no country name so far. Judging by the presence of guns, schools and even completely random 5 star hotels the period should be one close to contemporary. The only information that we have is the name of the stronghold he currently is in, "7d101", no words about the surrounding relief nor administrative system in the stronghold other than some loosely described "hunter's association" and some council which was mentioned once in a single line. We get some half-assed "cultivation" system with a "life wheel" and "life crystals" which can bestow prana to the life wheel and that makes it keep going. We are told people in the world get stronger by absorbing the prana from monsters and become what is known as "Hunters", acording to a certain chapters there are a variety of hunter types but so far we only know of Gourmet hunters (Think Toriko) and... regular hunters killing monsters for money.

The plot makes little to no sense so far, It feels as if all the characters and the world exist solely for the main character (author) with one good thing after another happen in a row without warranting anything.
Spoiler

MC's house gets destroyed by a vampire, MC meets a random "Gold" ranked rich kid which basically throws a "3 life crystal" gift to him for no real reason. The following morning construction workers/carpenters appear and remodel his barely described 2 story villa (in which he lives all alone with his sister and no wards about their parents so far) into a 3 story mansion. They are also booked a room in a random 5 star hotel where the owner makes steroid-like drinks for the MC to aid him in learning an "epic"-level sword technique from some random guy whom he never met/had any interactions before

[collapse]

The dialogues are similarly horrible and incredibly stiff. It's more plausible to believe that the author/MC is taking turns talking to himself in his mind than interacting with other thinking human beings. Mc's decision are of course always "Correct" and the author goes at length to explain why he is right following right after.

All in all i'd say this is a pretty bad novel and more of a wish-fulfillment on the part of the author. I wouldn't recommend anyone to read this as it's mostly a waste of time. If it gets to 100 chapters i'll come back edit if I find anything has changed otherwise it's in your best interest to stay away. <<less

Ignoring the sudden drop of a new world with very little explanation and unfamiliar terms, it had an excellent start. I especially loved how they used one of those online card based games for his power, but grew increasingly disappointed however with inconsistent characters and especially how everyone treats the MC.

Characters are introduced in one way but I often find them to actually be different from how they are initially described or should be.

... more>>
Spoiler

The rich noble in the hunter examination is a typical golden spoon child used to getting everything he wants and takes a typical xianxia approach to the main character demanding he works for him or he'll basically turn him into a cripple. One gunshot and a threat later at Minor Goon A and this noble has suddenly become apologetic and will give up all his items in the hope that the MC will forgive him.

The head examiner Yi Yeyu is initially portrayed to be the cold beauty with a strong S side to her, nicknamed "that witch" by someone. However later when the examination is suspended and the kids are in danger, she is in tears for them to leave what will become a battlefield. Is she supposed to be tsundere? A sadist? Who knows, I can't even tell anymore.

[collapse]

The biggest problem is how everyone treats the MC. He is a fifteen year old boy with a broken life wheel. In xianxia terms, he is the trash child that can't cultivate. While I'm not expecting everyone to pick on him, every other character treats him like some kind of enigma, a man of mysterious depths. He is not treated like the child he is, but like that of a young hero with grand accomplishments. Perhaps the author really needed to stop here and consider what type of MC he wanted and how it could work in the story.

Spoiler

The MC tells the examiner about there should be a trancendant monster controlling the others and she takes his word for it, halting the examination and making a report to the higher ups. This is a fully grown woman, an experienced gold rank hunter in the top 1% of all gold rank hunters, deferring to what she can only see is a fifteen year old boy with no 'cultivation' without questioning, verifying, or in fact even probing any further in any sort of way.

[collapse]

Chinese authors are sticklers for consistency and reusing templates, and while this novel is trying something new which I love, it feels like it's wading too far in unfamiliar waters.

Edit: Sinai, if the novel was actually written like that, I would definitely read it as at least it's embracing its stupidity! It would actually be a pretty good read too! <<less

I give it a 5 stars because it looks really fun. Gives me a nice feeling for the upcomming chapters and story. It has a modern setting but has wuxia elements. For the start it kinda is a bit rushed, I kinda need some more info but it has started with the world building and it seems intresting. Never heard or seen this translator but I hope he will update regulary. The novel is really new.

Dont be fooled by the picture as I have read the monsters are not that... more>> fluffy and nice.

Spoiler

The MC was supposed to have a broken Life Wheel, which meant that his life ran out 10x faster than others, and he only had 3 months to, but there was absolutely no point, since it didn't contribute anything to the story, since it was resolved within 30 chapters, and didn't affect MC at all. Apparently, using his summons to kill monsters, through some cheat that makes no sense, refills his Life wheel, and an absolute trash, lowest tier iron ranked monster gave him 20 years (2 years for him I suppose) worth of life. Within 1-2 chapters he completely filled up his life bar. WTF?? So by killing trash tier monsters this guy can just remain immortal? Then I guess the author just got tired of the whole "broken life wheel" gimmick because a couple of chapters later he decides to get rid of it in the most retarded way possible. This MC of ours is climbing a mountain, and little snowball monster comes up to him, begging for some food. After the MC gives it to him, the little snowball gets the MC to follow him, and turns into some giant OP yeti. Even more WTF. Then, the yeti tells him some sob story of his master, some super OP monster/divinity type thing fell in love with a human, got betrayed, and then when the human found out she was a monster, betrayed her and tried to kill her. Afterwords, the ex-lover tells the OP monster lady to give him her life source or whatever, knowing it will kill her, and she does. That's not even the worst part. She falls into some eternal slumber until her destined one drips blood on her? What kind of retarded premise is that? Why the hell would she be care about a human lover when she got betrayed? And for some reason, the MC's blood awakens her. Why the hell can some less than iron rank trash human blood revived a godlike being that lost their life source with the just a drop a blood? Some power of love BS? Then she magically fixes the broken Life Wheel that lasted for a good 30 chapters and had 0 effect on the story so far, but was apparently important enough to be a part of the introductory premise. Then the OP women just disappeared. That's not even the worst part. A couple chapters later, the MC gets attacked by some bird, and manages to kill it, only to find out that some other guy (who is part of the test the MC is currently taking) was the perpetrator. This guy is the worse, most pathetic goddamn villain in recent webnovel history. The guy, for some reason, said he killed all the other contestants that were trying to cross because he wanted to be the only one who passed. But, the MC who killed his really strong bronze ranked bird was "too weak" to kill, so he was gonna spare him. And then he walks away. How does that make any sense? Why tf would you want to kill the other contestants? And if that was so important, why the hell wouldn't you kill the MC? Earlier, it had mentioned that there was no killing allowed in the exam, but now not only does this sh*tty villain kill people, he leaves a living witness. And if the MC was "too weak to kill", why did he kill the other, weaker contestants?

[collapse]

I could not handle all the inconsistency and random BS thrown in by the author to force the plot forward. I don't mind plot armor, but it should at least flow with the story. I try not to judge stories too early, especially since one of my favorite novels, The Ultimate Evolution, took me at least 100 chapters before I got into it, and maybe this story gets better, but I could not get through anymore of this authors BS, at least not without wanting to smashing my face into my keyboard. <<less

Story and world building: 9/10
So why just 3/4 stars?

Author's Writing: 6/10

Now, please read the rest to understand why.
The feeling I've gotten from reading this novel is that this is the author's first novel, so considering that, the story being 9/10 is amazing, the world building is fantastic and the writing is good.
I won't spoil anything but for me, the world makes sense even if we're not told everything, which is rare in my experience. However, the writing is sometimes a bit flawed, I have encountered continuity flaws,... more>> sometimes the flow feels a bit off, either going to fast or skipping parts that could have been used to fill in gaps and dwelve more into the world and it's characters. Some characters also feel a bit shallow. However, almost all of the characters are quite well written.

The only real downside that pulls it down a bit for me (and probably a lot for others) is that there are quite a few small flaws in the story. However, as I said, the novel itself gives me the feeling of this being the author's first novel, hence why the flaws are generally just fine, they aren't that big either so one can accept it as it is and just "fix" the flawed parts on one's own.

TL;DR:
If this is trully the author's first novel.
My gut feeling tells me that when the author's writing skills improve over time, he might be an even better author than Er Gen or I Eat Tomatoes (which are two of my fav authors).
I hope to see more from him in the future if every novel he writes will have this kind of story, lore and worldbuilding. <<less

It was interesting at first but the more I read the more disappointed I get. When you read a story there usually is some overarching theme or like "plot" let's say. This is what keeps the story interesting and generally yes, there will be some arcs to the story with sub-plots which gradually lead this plot forward and should connect to each other in the end and throughout at least to some degree. But this story... it's just all over the place and it's way too random. There is no... more>> foreshadowing, there is no great goal, there is nothing. It's just a story about a guy with a cheat and some random crap that happens to him, most of which is just really illogical and makes you go "wut?". It would have been okay if this was a slice of life story but it was obviously not meant to be that. I feel like the author gets bored with his own plot points and can't think of a good idea to free the MC from the situation so everything is just resolved through magical means once the author can't think of any good ideas. <<less

It's the first time I write a review, and I planned to never write one, but I just had to tell my stupefaction at the low score of this novel. I often read reviews that talk about the originality or whatnot of the novels, but more often than not I find myself dropping a novel not for the originality but for a complex set of reasons that can be generally summed to one single point: is this novel boring? With boring I don't mean only the story but also how... more>> smooth is the flow of the events.

I found this novel quite entertaining, with a good story, and not at all boring. This is all I need to give 5 stars to this novel with a clear conscience. <<less

Nothing really new from other game like element novels. Not sure why some are praising the beginning like the sun, even with the prequel the pacing is everywhere. Wouldn't really care if MC or his sister died in the first 7 chapters. Might get good but was bored 20 chapters through so dropped it. Give it a go, you might like it or you might not.

Very underrated.

It's a good read for those who like systems and world building at the same time. No ridiculous comedy that irritates you, no drama and harem bs. Just a talented young man being pushed by the waves. He doesn't offend everybody he meets because he's "awesome" and because he has plot armor along with his pride.

The world building is top notch. It doesn't give too much or too little. The exposition is just enough every once in a while.

MC plays a card game app for 6 months and decided to delete the app. A notification shows up asking him if he wanted to travel to another world. Eventually he accepts and was sent to a world where there are monsters, cultivation and is a much more advance society. As he is a traveler he received a 'gold finger' or cheat. He has a card system much like the app he had played. He also has a system that will help him named 'xiao hei' (I don't know if I got that right.)

His body's identity is a 15 yr old orphan living with his 13 yr old sister and was as a top student of a school (or was it uni?) but he was rejected from other college schools when they assessed him and found out that his life wheel was broken. (A life wheel is like a person's life span.) his life energy was burning up ten times faster than average so he only has two months to live.

Now that MC has taken over we all know what will happen in all other transmigrating stories.

Okay so this has awesome world building and just like the one of my fave categories where it focuses more on MC. (Some may get confused if they don't read chinese novels much. There are some terms in the story like references of cultural idioms and famous local shows but they aren't shown often in the story.)

/ I like the story so I just can't resist putting this review.

I believe the reason for this novel's popularity on the QI rankings at this moment is because it does the bare minimum to keep the reader's interest. For all the filler and plot problems, this novel is tolerable due to the super frequent translation updates. My rating would be 3 stars if I took the update frequency into account, but because that's not relevant once the novel's fully translated, hence I leave the rating at 2 stars.

Better novels move past getting stronger as the driving force of the novel. Usually,... more>> past the first few arcs, you'll get hints of some bigger secret of the universe that so happens to coincide with the MC's goals. Here, however, it still feels like the story hasn't really begun yet even as of c273. Unlike better novels that can be excused as slow-paced for the sake of other purposes, the true reason is obvious: there isn't much plot and most of it is filler.

Many chapters waste space describing the MC doing or thinking about mundane tasks. Do we really need to spend that many lines hearing their deliberations on where to take a vacation? Those actions are not inherently boring but better novels use them for plot development, character development, comedy, or at least infuse them with some sense of importance. That's not what happens here and it's become more apparent in the recent chapters. Thankfully, fast updates get the novel to when things start to pick up, so you don't get the sense that nothing is happening for too long. Given the fast updates and filler chapters, it's no wonder I turn off my brain reading the chapters. Consequently, I'm not fully prepared to judge whether the MC has too much plot armor or not or if everyone is dumbed down. What's obvious enough to irk me though is the quick recycling of plot scenarios:

Spoiler

The MC gets in danger of being kidnapped and threatened by underground organisations after he just escaped from the being kidnapped and threatened by another one.

[collapse]

When that annoyed me, I found a flood of comments expressing a similar horror and disappointment at how the MC left the same loose end that he left the other time. <<less

The novel itself is decent, but I'm certain that the 'translation' is just some glorified MTL that has been edited.

I've read enough novels on LNMTL to recognize MTL when I see it.

I don't actually have a problem with MTL, I did just say that I read a lot on LNMTL after all, but regular MTL is actually preferred. At least it's consistent.

... more>> QI need to get an actual editor/proofreader, I'm constantly triggered by the awful phrasing and poor choice of words etc.

You can tell that there has been almost no thought or effort put into it as the mistakes are so basic, it would have been impossible if the TL/Editor/Proofreader stopped for a moment to think about what they where writing. (Of course, this is the other reason why I'm confident that it's MTL, copy & pasting would explain not having to think about what you're writing.)

Anyway, more about the novel. Like I said, it's not really bad, but it's somewhat-random and the author just come up with stuff from moment to moment. The "Protoss" and everything related to her should just not have happened, that's seriously just stupid as hell.
It reminds me of how in some Anime there will be sudden filler mini-arcs put inserted into other arcs, disrupting the flow of the plot, and on top of that they're usually bad as well.

So while the novel isn't terrible, besides the premise there's pretty much nothing good about it either. A couple of chapters in and the Author just randomly threw a woman at the MC who cure his disease which was the reason for him to so desperately seek to become Hunter—tell me—why should the MC risk his life now that he isn't going to die within 3 months?

So stupid to have this thing where the MC's lifespan is decreasing 10 times faster than regular and he has to desperately hunt for life crystals to prolong it, only for the author to randomly cure him 10 chapters later...

p.s. but despite how the more I read the worse I feel about the novel, for some reason I'm still reading 170+ chapters... <<less
