Mystical Journey

Description

One moment, Luo Jing was at the brink of death after accidentally touching a power outlet while showering. The next, he was in the body of a man named Garen, with memories of a past he was never a part of flowing into his head. As he slowly gets used to the body of Garen, he begins to explore a planet beyond his own logical comprehension. His journey will see him go from surviving in a planet locked in the 20th century, to wielding secret techniques so powerful that they level cities overnight. However, his journey doesn’t end with Garen. Instead this is but the first of many bodies that Luo Jing will come to wield in his mystical journey between worlds.

i want to describe this as a rough gem, but the more I read it the more I find it to be just rough.

too many inconsistencies, a plot that just pushes the MC around without him ever able to take the initiative.

Hear this, the MC is reincarnated as a teenage student in a early 20th century-like world, being able to increase his stats (strength, agility, intelligence, and vitality) with a special imaterial resource called "potential" and he doesn't know exactly how to acquire more.

with just this information you already know... more>> what he should do: increase intelligence. It's not even up to debate, he doesn't even know if he ever will get more potential, with intelligence, he could improve his life in many ways and even make acquiring potential easier (since he'll be smarter, duh). Of course, since this novel is rough, that's not what happens at all.

Spoiler

He puts it in strength, for no real reason. Later, the author gives excuses like "martial arts are his dream" and "he fell into depression after reincarnating and martial arts made him feel safer", but it's all a bunch of bulls**t since there wasn't any real danger in his life before he got involved with martial arts, there was never a looming threat, and he could increase his other stats steadily like a normal person would and practice martial arts with his new young body like a normal person.

[collapse]

Read this novel expecting it to be lacking in many ways, just read way of the devil (same author) if you want a good cultivation story, this story was born to be a batman-esque "detective in the day, martial artist in the night" on a 19th/20th century world, but the author just wrote "cultivaton story, but sometimes guns appear".

I want to like this so much, since I liked way of the devil, but even before reaching his second reincarnation (at least the description says it will happen, idk), I have a strong fear that the MC will die before making all this life worth it for the readers (me), like getting married and having a child (as conclusion for the romance), or even becoming the strongest or whatever is his objective for the martial arts plot.

tl;dr
wasted potential, just read way of the devil <<less

Before you talk about the world concept, the characters or any other things that you might see in the story, the biggest problem that is prevalent in the story is in its horrible, messy, and weird pacing that makes you say wtf!

Also, there are many plot holes and questionable jumps in logic that happens in important moments. There are things that the MC did that wasn't really necessary AT ALL. There also the habit of the Author in forcing stuff to happen, hence the jumps in logic.

Well anyway, it's still... more>> a decently unique read compared to most so I still recommend this novel. <<less

I'm pretty unsatisfied with MC. MC keeps mentioning about not having enough money to buy certain jewelry with supernatural? Background to power up his attributes but he never thinks to use his modern world knowledge to earn money. I mean, even if he doesn't know how to build modern appliances he could come up with some games that his new world doesn't have (such as monopoly or poker cards (his world seems to only use paper with holes punched into them as cards as far as I got from the... more>> story)). Or at least the author should make the MC think about using his modern knowledge to make money but discard his idea because it takes too long to set up a business or not having enough money to set it up. He only keeps thinking of joining school competitions to earn money even when his attributes are low. There seems to be no useful aspect of MC coming from another world if all it does is to explain why he's more mature and a little smarter than his other classmates (actually that doesn't seem to be true as he's not even thinking of applying his modern knowledge to make his life better) and how he got his cheat powers. The author should have left the transmigration aspect out of the story and make the MC a native of the world he's in now and come up with another reason of how he got his power.

Another thing that irks me is the mc's stepsister. She beats up MC (but not seriously, because MC had his coat as padding to protect him) because he accidentally sees under her skirt. But it's only because she wears such a short skirt. If you don't want anyone to see your panties wear a longer skirt or pants!!! Sheesh, such an unreasonable sister. Actually that applies to a lot of other novels where MC accidentally sees girl naked or their panties and he gets beaten up by them when it was practically their fault for not being careful.

Whew, finished with my rant. Now I feel much better.

But even with these things that makes me upset with the story, I'll still continue reading it because I'm interested in MC traveling to different worlds. <<less

MC will journey to many worlds and reach the topmost power level. I was hooked most of the time while reading and anticipating his growth. There are moment where you feel like he is too damn OP then he journeys to new world starting with nothing where rules of world is totally different and he has to use his previous worlds knowledge and experience to deal with situations. He accumulates knowledge of worlds he visits then uses it in his next world. The story is great except the ending.
... more>>
Spoiler

The ending is super rushed and bad. It feels like author wanted to jump to new novel and just ended it right there. Half finished. Many questions are left unanswered like his special attribute talent. There is that one girl whose name I forgot who MC said would visit later but just forgets. This is what betrayal feels like.... hopefully he does't treat way of the devil similarly

To be honest, the concept is good but the story is not planned out properly the main problems are:

characters

the author changes the personality of characters at whim for example... more>>
Spoiler

there was a girl author portrayed as a poor and kind girl taking care of her family; a good friend to MC and friends and some chapters later whoosh.. She becomes a loose character girls who then badmouth about MC.

[collapse]

martial arts:

I don't even know where to begin with, OK so its 20th-century world, pretty similar to earth. MC joins a normal dojo and can you guess what they teach in that dojo, yep it's our same old, taught in every near dojo

BODY STRENGTHENING ART (that can protect you from bullets)

FIGHTING TECHNIQUES (that can break concrete walls, and roads, and telephone poles and pretty much any breakable thing)

and its just a small dojo, if such arts can be learned so easily then won't you expect everyone to know the existence of martial arts, but it is not true as rarely anybody knows about martial arts.

Leaving that aside; there is no proper distinction for power levels, and the loopholes are uncountable. MC just does random things which goes on for pages and bears no result in the end for eg

Spoiler

He went to a school trip with his friend on one condition that he would let him see his antique gem collection but after the trip there is just no mention of the collection again, I nearly threw my laptop out of the window

[collapse]

the premise of this novel is good but the writing is crap, I don't know if it is improved afterward-but till 50th chapter it was unbearable, its a good light read if you do not care for specifics. <<less

This is a hidden gem, the MC is mature and not falling in the abyss of lust despite all the harem surround him. The story also really progressing well from slice of life into more on fighting wuxia in modern day.

The MC focus on a big picture instead of fulfilling his relatives' demands. This make all those early chapter about slice of life sounds just like a background for MC to shine more at later chapters.

No explanation as to why the protagonist is becoming a martial artist in a modern world with no supernatural elements. Like, an "it's cool, and feasible with my superpower" would have sufficed. There isn't even an explanation that breaks my suspension of disbelief. There's no explanation. It's mentioned later that he wants to. Why does he want to?

Other than that, it's pretty standard, like going into details about a beautiful female's breasts jiggling, or reducing martial arts into numbers and multiplying your damage by 1.5.

The first fifty chapters are almost nothing like the rest of the novel, and is probably the worst part. Once you get past that the story stabilizes into a simple formula of adventure and intense fights. The author keeps it simple, theres no harem, and its very satisfying novel to read. Read it if you just want plain unpretentious entertainment about a MC who goes from weak to strong as a undefeated boss.

5/5

I got bored. MC keeps complaining about his lack of artifacts to use to boost his stats, but he barely even tries to look for them. Even as his status increases, he still can't find the time or desire to ask around and 'borrow' artifacts. He always thinks he has to buy them for some reason and doesn't have the IQ to take advantage of a simple rental usage.

The use of stats in this is weak as the MC goes full strength/stamina at the start and ignores agility/int. Then he... more>> fights and always sucks at it since he's slow and can't think quickly enough. Yet he still continues to boost str/stam and ignores the other two stats for 'reasons'.

Then, when skills get introduced, he starts throwing points into that with the idea that it'll supplement his Super Strength and Stamina. His body is still slow af, but he can now move better— nope. Still sucks at fighting.

Fight scenes also suck for a martial artist story. Read Martial Arts Master instead if you want a good fight scene story. <<less

TLDR: This novel is a lot better than I expected it to be, there are however still things I'm not satisfied with. I see it as a masterpiece, a steampunk-ish world with martial arts and "x-files" type elements, this is however only until the point where he leaves town for the tournament between schools/gates, the world quickly loses it's charm and mysticism, reverting back to your run of the mill story.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The beginning of the novel creates a very steampunk-ish atmosphere, the world is described as being like earth before the... more>> first world war if I'm not mistaken, while giving it a gloomy feel, an atmosphere that makes you imagine an early nineteen-hundreds town in England with weather that's mostly cloudy, giving a kind of suffocating environment where the protagonist is the son of a factory worker couple, making them lower middle class, while his uncle is of higher social status making it possible, through his help, for them to attend a higher grade high school. I believe this school was described as being a school for nobles.

The problem is that this setting which I liked very much is soon thrown away, replaced by modern weaponry and technology, there is no TV or internet, old fashioned trains and horse carriages with cars described as old fashioned, but soon we see cars everywhere, some seemingly limited editions and although not specified, I believe them to be sports cars. Automatic rifles weren't common until the first world war, same with sniper rifles, they weren't commonly used in warfare until the first world war, while tanks weren't common until the second world war, same with shoulder-fired rocket launchers. All of these are mentioned either frequently or once so far, making it very inconsistent. Apparently there's even "fingerprint scan". Using fingerprints in itself isn't weird, but a scanner, really? If the technological advancement of the story was just before the second world war, my point is of course invalid, I don't care to go back and check and it's really just a minor point in my overall evaluation of this story, the more important parts are listed below.

It is described as a time where martial arts is becoming obsolete because of the advancement in technology, while I also expected it to be about how society is shifting from being noble based to a society of equality, simply because of the fact that they were mentioned and elevated to a position that's above commoners, this doesn't happen and that's fine since it's in a completely different time period on earth than the beginning of the nineteen-hundreds.

The thing that bothers me more is how a seemingly normal guy from modern society is acting, his curiosity for marital arts isn't weird, but throwing away all other aspects of life for that? One of the Genres is Harem and that's probably because of how many girls seem to like him, but he's totally as*xual, and detached from any emotions of any kind. Other than his short worry about becoming something inhumane through taking the wrong path during his martial arts training, this could have evolved into something so much more, the struggle in himself and between the different forced, it is however completely forgotten.

We are still at the first person, Garen, and it's described as "this is but the first of many bodies that Luo Jing will come to wield", this could explain the attitude to the side characters, not getting them too much involved because it'll make it easier on the reader once the main character moves on, it seems unlikely though that's it's a thing where he dies again and moves to a different world to experience a new setting and powers, making him evolve, like I thought it would be.

The big secret and overall plot of this novel seemed at first to be where his powers come from, what's going on with the artifacts that gives him the power and the hidden elements in the world. This however has mostly been described by the MC as being a collection of his otherworldly knowledge and a lot of other things falling into place giving him the special powers, while the artifacts are just about how much misery that's happened around them, while trying to give us a feeling that it could be something supernatural, but still not fully disclosing it, something similar to x-files. Aside from this he's almost at the level of the hidden forces in the world.

This entire story started out as something with a very interesting setting and unlimited possibilities because of an interesting plot and interactions between both characters and factions in the world, but in the end it turned out to be just any other story about getting stronger and standing on top through nothing but an OP cheat, a wuxia in a modern setting instead of a steampunk-ish martial adventure with hidden wonders everywhere. I see it as a masterpiece until the point where he leaves town for the tournament between schools/gates, the world quickly loses it's charm and mysticism, reverting back to your run of the mill story. <<less

First of all, this is novel by Get Lost so it's obviously going to have interesting mixture of mystery, action and fantasy. If you like way of the devil you will love this one too. This has everything that you could wish for: good fight scenes, interesting world, good dose of mystery and fantasy, plus characters are not too shallow.

I am a 5 star person.

why?

  • MC isn't super OP off the start. He actually has to start working his way to it. Maybe about 80- 100 chapters later we start seeing his power creeping up.
  • I liked the world setting. It's really like the 1930-1940s setting. You get that old chop suey gangster black and white feel. Pre WW2 setting or about so. Almost expect to see some old Charlie Chan to come out and stuff. So if you like that old 1930 to 1940's settings, you may like this.
  • Martial arts vs Guns. Basically its like that at times. The world is advancing and as time goes by, hand to hand vs guns is bumping heads. Course... you start to see Gun Kata Martial arts come out too. Our MC is NOT a Gun Kata martial arts master. He's old school. I kind of liked that feeling the story created. You can see the frustration of the old school as it clashes with new Gun Kata users.
  • Then... there is a twist to this. No spoilers. But you'll see what it means "journey"
  • Support characters had enough presence that I could recognize them. They didn't have a strong enough presence to stand on their own though. So don't expect TOO much from support characters.
  • overall liked it well enough to keep up with the rest.
side note: do check out his other story: Way of the Devil, especially if you like the idea of a MYSTICAL HULK vs SUPERNATURAL MONSTERS. Good times.

For me the novel feels as if the author just wrote down whatever random inspiration he just got 5 minutes before. The story is jumpy and confusing and often inspired by other works (as in: the author just watched that movie and now has to advance his plot in that direction or introduce the core tech of that specific work). It has heavy WTF moments, but it is still very interesting to read and kept me for almost 400 chapters, so I give it a solid 4.

The MC transmigrates into... more>> the body of Garen, a nobody in an alternate world. There he gets a interface where he can level up his attributes.
Spoiler

It starts Konan-esque by solving mysterys to get relicts that provide skill points. The MC often has no idea what to do even though he has an attribute called Intelligence. Instead he levels his strength to pick up martial arts. The martial arts take over and the story evolves into Fist of the North star. This goes on until Garen becomes the strongest man alive, fighting a sorcerer community until someone drops a nuke onto him. The end? No! Garen gets transmigrated another world where he starts similar to Warlock of the Magus world, but with totems instead of spells. Some more random acts happen until Garen transforms himself into another uber-mensch, going on another rampage. I stopped when he got a device that reminded me of the scanner in DBZ. Its over 9000!

The story is not consistent. In the first chapter it is mentioned that the MC and his sister are ordinary people without any talents. Though the MC's turned out to be true, the sister is talented in archery. Even the technology of the world is inconsistent. It is mentioned that there are cars and planes. But the MC travelled in carriage in 1 chapter. The names are also not to my liking. Go with western completely or chinese completely.

I was not able to go past chapter 30 with that many... more>> plot inconsistencies. <<less

An interesting read. Worth picking up, even though I only gave it 3 stars.

The story setting itself makes it stand out, and worth reading. It is like a detective story during the start of the 20th century, just add western mysticism/ghosts and martial arts.

The problem lies in transition. When scenes change, or time skips occur, it takes a few paragraphs to figure out what has happened. This leads to confusion, and a break in immersion. It also leads to loose ends, and parts of the story not matching up to... more>> well. Basically, events and timelines are pretty spotty, giving the story a feeling that it was not well planned out and organized to begin with. <<less
