Nano Mashin

Description

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

Until he became the lowest-ranked master, his lonely and luckless life never changed.

Suddenly one day, a descendant injected him with a nanomachine, and the machine started ‘speaking’ to him.

[I am the seventh generation Nanomachine manufactured by Sky Cooperation, and I am operating as a central nerve connected to your brain.]

“What? What are you talking about?”

This was beyond the boy’s knowledge, he turned pale.

The Nanomachine linked to his cerebrum realized the User was not understanding a single word it said.

“Who are you, and why are you doing this to me?”

[“I am the seventh generation Nanomachine.]

“Nano Machine?”

[Yes, Nanomachine.]

The boy’s face hardened.

Mashin was the deity the Mashin Religion worshipped, along with the Sacred Fire.

The religions’ Master communicated with Mashin.

“Um, are you really Mashin?”

The boy knelt down and asked with a trembling voice. At this, the Nanomachine attached to his cerebrum realized it had been misunderstood.

Started 100 manhwa chapters read 390 of the novel.

Review contains mild spoilers

... more>>
Spoiler

It is fun to read at the start. At least in the manhwa. Up until where MC's revenge is complete. After that MC turns super OP and super ruthless with an arm cutting fetish lmao. Well it is called the demonic cult for a reason. Ruthless that he doesn't spare any enemies and cuts off loose ends regardless of gender. Eventually got boring when they introduce a death or s*x plot inguise of medical treatment. Even his lover and the family of the other person agreed. Super cringey and dumb. Then afterwards the girl is never even relevant to the story and fades in the background. The lover too. Actually, everyone beside the MC is just baggage and are almost kinda irrelevant imo.

[collapse]

If you like ruthless MC, I suggest you read it. <<less

Not the best but worth the read. The novel follows the usual trope of a powerless, bastard son being given a cheat which helped him to grow in a short period of time. While MC ended up OP, he was never the most genius nor the strongest (until the final 10+ chapters) in his world. The overall plot of the novel is refreshing and the ending transitions nicely to the sequel. The not-so-nice parts of the novel are the romance (must be Er Gen's understudy) and the battle scenes (which... more>> can be convoluted at times). Overall, the novel is worth a read if you can switch off your moral compass and read the novel as it is. <<less

Decided to drop the novel for several reasons. Forced romance by the author, forced s*upidtity for MC to get a power up, r*pe because "The girl was going to die and needed it!".

Just like reverend insanity, the novel is sometimes very gruesome in it's descriptions. I don't mind as I have enjoyed Reverend very much. Though my qualms begin here.

... more>>
Spoiler

Starting around chapter 300 ish, we MC finds a cave laced with what we assume is "firepowder" Basically some explosive powder that will ignite when theres fire. Author says that the MC "assumes it isn't against them since the godly doctor could've set it up" Plot twist it was a trap. After him dealing with the supposedly "Cunning Lady Mu" You'd assume he'd be more suspicious with stuff like this. Plus with Nano to inform him before hand it's actually quite amazing. So cave explodes and his team is injured as well, they think he dies and he gets blasted into a canyon with the legacy of the "impossible" skill that combines 2 of the godly arts he already uses. Fi

[collapse]

That's only one instance of forced s*upidity, now forced romance.

Spoiler

The romance between Mun Ku and MC started off as "He knows I'm a girl" and "A girl is staying in my room" Not much progress in this where the only memorable time is where Mun Ku had to say she was MC's woman because of plot. Cut to a hundred chapters later they go to an inn and ask for rooms. Only room they have is a 2-person room with only 1 bed. Side Characters egg MC on to share the room with Mun Ku. The clownery of it all is that it felt so forced that I just had to skip the few chapters of the banter.

[collapse]

Now r*pe.

Spoiler

It started feeling more like some chinese wuxia harem novel here. Random power up through danger, women starting to fall in love with MC because he has authority and power + looks. They come across some dude who says he needs yang-attributed medicine for his sister but he cannot get any since they killed the daughter of the divine doctor (Cause she had stockholm syndrome towards the pirates that kidnapped here). When it said "Yang- attributed" I had a faint feeling in my heart it'd be bad. We cut to the chase with the legend of infinite yin qi and only MC being able to seal her blood points cause he's the strongest among them.

Blah blah blah, they bring her to the godly doctor and doctor explains her yin qi is coming from the v*gina and that to solve her "Blocked veins" someone with powerful yang qi has to mate with her. Top 5 powerful dad comes busting in cause he thinks his children were kidnapped, finds out his daughter might die, gets told she needs to be f*cked and begs MC to save his daughter.

Mind you, Mun Ku is already crying and MC said it himself he must love only 1 wife to not repeat the tragedy in the cult but foreshadowing already gave us 2 more harem members for f*cks sake. Nano for some reason can only do birth control and not let the girl get pregnant yet for being far into the future can't even think of placing his semen in a container and just injecting it into her v*gina or whatever. Turns out as MC is r*ping the girl, he gets another power-up by consuming and combining the some of the yin-qi with his energy and he goes up to the next martial level.

[collapse]

Then some nuances like MRI scans still being called MRI scans after Nano is somehow from the far future. How Nano says there are millions of nanobots inside of MC yet we don't know it's power source nor know how nanobots don't get out when MC loses some of his blood. Some points of this novel feels like your generic chinese harem novel. Don't get me started on
Spoiler

Generic plot twist that dad was never the bad guy and that he was mind-controlled/going crazy and couldn't help MC

[collapse]

Overall, Novel was great when it talked about MC's climb to power, probably could've ended after he became lord. Novel got significantly worse with what came next though. Poor worldbuilding and no consistent information when one of the clans he subordinated has spies everywhere yet doesn't know the righteous path's and evil path's power hierarchy. Read up till he becomes lord, then finish with a good taste in your mouth. <<less

It was overall a pretty good story until the events in chapter 329, then it rapidly dropped to tr*sh. Also as of chapter 329 story needs a "r*pe" trigger warning tag added.

... more>>
Spoiler

The story was going well until the author felt the need to include the "r*ping a sleeping woman for her own good" storyline. MC basically encounters new characters and within 10 chapters "the only way to save her life is to r*pe her while she is asleep". If you think this is distasteful though don't worry, the author pretty much fills a few chapters about how her brother and father are total cool with him r*ping their sister/daughter and that MC's main girl is total fine with it just this once. Incase that didn't convince you he also includes a rather large chunk about how MC is such a good person for r*ping her. The basic interaction between him and new girl is : Beat her up > Knock her out> Crew decides only way to save her is for the MC to r*pe her while she is unconscious>She wakes up mid r*pe tied down and immobilized> Thinks to herself MC is such a good person for r*ping her > MC gets power up. Look yes I know r*pe actually happens and used to be common, My issue moreso lay in how the author has attempted to frame the MC as being a hero for r*ping an unconscious girl. If you wanna include r*pe then do it. Just don't try to find reasons for your r*pe fetish scene to be heroic. Its not.

Great read, characters make smart and logical decisions, really good worldbuilding and characters.

And just to point out the "rape" thing everyone who dislikes this are talking about.

First : The MC has s*x with a girl in a coma because she is about to die, he doesn't want to do it, and the only reason he does it is because the father and brother of the girl are literally begging him to do it. I don't know about you, but r*pe is still preferable than dying and is not even as... more>> if he decides to just forgget about that, he decides to take responsability and marry the girl.

Second : Is it silly? Yes, but is a trope in wuxia stories, with the Yin and Yan qi and all that shit, there is even a manga where andorgynus plant people f*ck each other so they can gather more Qi and become stronger (Hell's Paradise, pretty good). It's something established in Asian mythology and the this novel just uses it in one of the most tame ways I've ever seen, Vanilla hentai has more r*pe than this novel.

And f*cking Thrid: People here are saying that they are disgusted because the MC has s*x with a woman to save her life, but they clearly have no problem when the same MC kills and horrible tortures hundreds of people, ens*aves his enemies, breaks the neck of a widower in front ot her baby, and is the leader of a f*cking cult that has DEMONIC in the name. <<less

All was well until the the r*pe incident. That was totally out of character for the MC who so insisted to abide by his principles. He broke it for whom? A complete stranger he met not more than days ago. Imagine two lovers, girl and boy who suddenly ran across a dying stranger and for them to save him the girl had to r*pe him, RIGHT INFRONT OF THE BOY. Does that make sense? If put into perspective this just breaks any common sense and it did which led me... more>> to drop this.

And for the guy who said MC did a lot more horrific thing than this like torturing and killing I will say this, do you expect your enemy to talk by showering them with flower and candy? The most logical method to get answer is torture unless you can read mind and the quickest method to eliminate threat is to neutralize the said threat. As for r*ping a complete stranger? Only degenerates can find logic in that. <<less

I would have given this three or four stars. Not because it is super original or anything, but it's a pretty solid cultivation revenge story. I will start off with the things I liked, before I go into why I dropped it to 2 stars.

    1. I like the opening premise in that the MC is native to the world he is in (and not just some transmigrator who adapts unrealistically well). The sci-fi aspect of some time traveler giving him nano-machines (to be his cheat system) is kind of interesting, and alludes to a potentially promising larger plot (although I have a sinking suspicion that the story will deteriorate before it gets to that). I wish the author had continued some of the MC's early confusion with modern terms, because that was kind of funny, but oh well, it's not bad.
    1. The demonic cult set up and revenge backstory are decently engaging. It didn't feel like every challenge he faced there was completely unoriginal, even if there were quite a few cliches. The fulfillment of his revenge for his mother was a bit underwhelming though. It felt like there was a ton of set up and a seemingly mysterious female villain, but then it wrapped up way too quickly. I think the author wanted to move on... more>> to larger plot points so they just kind of got the revenge over with. That's not to say the face-slapping and revenge slaughtering wasn't at all satisfying, it did have some good moments. But it was too easy, even for an unabashedly OP protagonist, which was a waste of all the set up (Especially the, like, two chapter montage of his dad's side of things that was used to explain all the things the author hadn't revealed yet. That was a lot of backstory crammed into a short flashback).
        1. But, what makes the somewhat weak revenge okay is that the larger plot the author moves onto is relatively decent. I like the main enemy that is coming out, and the transition into a wider world outside the cult keeps things from stagnating too much.
        1. What WAS going to push this to possibly four stars before becoming a complete downer, is the "romance." At first the story seemed surprisingly low key in this regard. Yes, there were some cliche harem candidates scattered about, but it definitely wasn't a big focus. Also the MC seemed to be taking on some unusual-for-the-genre monogamous vibes, swearing that he would only have one wife to avoid the tragic fate of his mother. It would have been better if the author hadn't pretended, because then I would have just tried to ignore the harem and would have been less disappointed. And BOY WAS I DISAPPOINTED.
      Spoiler

      His short lived monogamy was rushed from the start. I didn't hate the girl or anything (she was definitely the best of the female characters introduced at that point). But... they got together shortly into the MC's first excursion out of the cult. Because they are at an inn without many rooms... and one of the MC's minions sets the two of them up to share one of the two rooms they managed to get... which conveniently only had one bed... fade to black.

      Like... okaaaay. You couldn't come up with something better than that? He has known this girl for several years, they essentially went to school together and have had many opportunities to get together. It seemed like the only reason they hadn't was a) the MC was focusing on cultivation and b) the MC seemed to want to be careful about who he married (and only wanted to marry for love - he specifically said this) since it would impact the cult a lot with him being the lord.

      And yet, just because of the "oh, there's only one bed" trope, they have to bang. Like, he didn't even seem that interested? But okay, whatever, the author is clearly a wizard so fine. At least it wasn't super in your face and the story moved on.

      But here's the REAL kicker. Barely a few days later, they end up encountering the biggest cliche of cultivation "romance." The Female Martial Artist with too much Yin Energy, who can Only be Saved if she is F*cked by a Man and all his Yang Energy. So, you know, even if her reaaally wanted to stay monogamous, really, he can't just let her die, he'll just have to Sacrifice Himself, oh, soooo noble. And his current girl is sad, but she understands, it's totally necessary, so she "gives him permission."

      Oh, and of course the girl is totally unconscious and the "Doctor" makes sure to explain that if she wakes up and starts struggling he just has to keep going, even by force, because otherwise she'll die. FYI, that's r*pe you guys. Not good.

      Long story short: DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!! >: (

      When I first started reading I was prepared to ignore a harem to get my cliche OP protagonist in a cultivation world story fix, so to be cheated like this (especially with all the continued justifications for why the MC had no choice and it just Had to Happen) really ticked me off. Don't try to justify it, I don't care about your opinion, if you argue with me you're an incel loser, the end.

      [collapse]

      Anyway, even after that I did keep reading because there were only a few more translated chapters. I do actually like the next direction the story is taking, with
      Spoiler

      the imperial family getting involved.

      [collapse]
      There is definitely some potential there. But unfortunately I am so disappointed by what I ranted about in that really long spoiler earlier that I am probably never going to pick this up again. So yeah, 2 stars, and only because I am feeling generous. <<less

"Boring and flat MC. Typical MC who is mistreated and grows up with the intention to avenge something. That would be great except I can't really feel his hatred in how he acts. I think his reaction to the nano machine was supposed to be comedic and funny, but I just found it very flat and boring. ". - Said by one reviewer.

Adding onto this, the story plot has many loopholes, especially how the power system is designed. I mean instructors weaker than cadet. Lol.A total let down I say.

It started good like every other novel.. But went down during half the way.. God.. the writing is so bad and repetitive. Everytime the hero does something to villains there'll be a line "an unbelievable thing happened at that moment". And the hero repeats the same f*cking thing he did few chapters ago. It's really cringe and so childish. Almost every character repeats the sentence" He is a monster" Or " Is he a monster" Or "You... Monster".. I get it respected author.. The hero is a monster. You don't... more>> have to remind me that every 10 pages.. And doesn't the villains don't talk to each other or something... why those f*cking villains never plans anything and always gets awed by seeing the same f*cking powers (ex. Air sword) of hero and calls him monster then loses an arm or head. And another weird thing is that portraying the hero as some kind of political genius. The f*ck?? He just give some weird s*upid decisions and the villains and allies goes" Oh he is not only good at fighting but also very good at politics".. duh.. When the f*ck did that happen??? The most horrible part is the second female lead.. As usual cliche, she is suffering from some great disease that no one in the world can cure but only one person.. Guess who?? Our hero.. And how? To have s*x with her. It is the only way and hero has to sacrifice his liquid.. Wow what a sacrifice.. Until the moment he is a person who never deviated from his moral to love and marry only one woman because of his mother's death and few chapters later he is planning to marry her to get the girls father to his side.. f*cking hypocrite... The only good part is how he does things.. At least he is not a psycho killer.

Man only if the second half of the novel is as good as the first half this would've been on the top 10 of my list.. But the moment author makes cringe reasons for the hero to have s*x with another woman the novel dug it's own grave... <<less

It starts off great, then like a lot of novels, drops off in quality later on. After a certain point in the novel (when the MC becomes the cult leader) the overarching plot nosedives down a cliff. The story should've ended when he achieved his goal, but it pointlessly continues on with the author jerking off the MC, piling power-up after power-up on him and making him invincible. It's fine to have an insanely overpowered MC like Saitama from One Punch Man, but the author doesn't do it correctly. There's... more>> nothing interesting reading about enemies who're hyped up to be super strong but get defeated by the MC without a challenge.

5/5 Start.

1/5 End.

Would I recommend reading it? Yes, but when it starts to get boring, just drop it because it doesn't get better. <<less

For those who are forgiving the r*pe scene by saying that the MC had to r*pe the character to "save" her, because Yin and Yang. The author did not have to forcibly write that situation into the novel. It was basically to force the character, who said that they would never look pursue another woman, to be able have a harem. It was forced and horrible. This author easily could have written another way to save her or just not have a reason to save her in the first place.

The start was really good. Unlike the chinese martial arts novel I was able to get a better grasp of names and levels. It's not fast paced or go into too much details where you start questioning your sanity. I liked the story building, it had kept me curious till chapter 325.

But I couldn't give it 4 or 5 stars because around chapter 300 or so it didn't make sense, I didn't like the way MC behaved. He was OP, I get it, all thanks to nano. Even with the... more>> highest level up if there's no nano, he won't be able to do half the stuff he's doing now. I believe he don't deserve to get Chen ma's inheritance. Power clouded his rational thinking and made him a monster who kills people just because.

Spoiler

The reason he annihilated six clans because they poisoned his mother, so all that revenge stuffs. But he killed Godly doctor's daughter because she refused to support him (which I find no problem at all, imagine some nut head comes and kills your husband and people you are close to, I too would go against him. Although she was kidnapped she had come to like the people around her and built a family with them. So I understand her reason.) But the MC killed her making her baby orphan. What's the difference between him and the six clans? He became unreasonable with power clouding his head.

[collapse]

Spoiler

And for the romance part it was ridiculous. There was no progressive development shown between the leads. And it just straight away went to confession and did the deed. But then the Cold blood blockage part made me completely drop it. I wouldn't support that kind of behaviour no matter what. He forced her, even if everyone agreed to it, I couldn't read past it.

Alright alright alright guys first things first let's ignore the story. Lets first look at the tags the genre meaning the setting.

The novel is set in Korean murim world i.e. a wuxia because korean novels are either wuxia or xuanhuan but no xianxia buuuuuuut.... our beloved author doesn't know what seperated wuxia and xianxia and blurred the boundaries which killed it for me. Imma tell you what seperated wuxia from xianxia-

1. Internal energy doesn't matter at all in wuxia and only techniques matter. Yes internal energy matter to but its... more>> only required to fuel the techniques and nothing else. NOTHING. BUT in this novel internal energy seems to rule above anything else. Come on dude its a wuxia do it properly for Gods sake

2. Epiphany in wuxia increases the level of techniques not internal energy goddamn it. But here MC's internal energy increases with each epiphany. HOW? Its natural energy how is your body that is only 20 y/o at most producing 60 years for internal energy every epiphany? HOW? If you pick a demographic please stick to it dont jump around.

3. How does that nano machine thingy work? I am no med student nor technical topics related student but dont machines require an energy source?

4. Honestly the story shouldn't exist because the whole story is a GODDAMN paradox.

5. And the fifth reason and the most annoying reson... bro I didnt know wuxia novels have ying yang concept and that in wuxia novels you can r*pe people to fix their yin constitution. Damn bro must have alzheimers cause I thought tHAT happened only in xianxias *SCUM CHE THAT's RIGTH I AM TALKING BOUT YOU*

all in all read upto the part where he becomes the lord and leave with a good taste in your mouth as someone before me cited. <<less

This reads like a Chinese xianxia with the exact same problems, except maybe no repetition for padding and a less psychopathic MC :
- Every character has a cardboard personality. Villains are villainous and MC has to crush them all one by one.

- The nanomachine idea was great, except it's not well executed, it's purely a crazy powerful ability used to bruteforce the solving of any problem.

Nothing else to say, the one dimensional characters killed my interest on it.

I have read this novel almost to the end and I have to say that it follows a novel structure, the climax chapters were definitely the earlier ones where cunning and training were the main focuses. But immediately after graduation, there was very little actual plot involved. Just level-ups followed by level up, with a dash of romance (no real interaction between MC and love interest).

It's no masterpiece, but it's not bad.

With the help of the nanobots, the MC quickly goes from almost dying to assassins as someone with no cultivation to rapidly rising in the ranks of the competition to become the heir to the demonic cult while snuffing out his rivals.

As time goes by he becomes more ruthless to those who get in his way and relentlessly pursues revenge for his mother who was poisoned to death when he was a child as he continues to become stronger.

While he relies on the nanobots... more>> quite a bit to get stronger (because why wouldn't he), he also uses his own head for scheming and also gains comprehensions on his own merit. Even when he seems to act rashly he often has a plan to make things end up in his favor without relying purely on plot armor (well the nanobots are the biggest plot armor anyway).

Overall a fairly decent MC, although besides being ruthless to his enemies and wanting revenge for his mother there isn't much notable about his personality.

Spoiler

He does have an odd fetish for cutting off people's arms though.

[collapse]

As for side characters, they aren't anything to write home about. Most of the time they're just baggage that the MC doesn't actually need and only exist to fill up space on the page.

Spoiler

Especially Hu Bong, who's incredibly annoying yet ever-present throughout most of the novel, and has the vitality of a c*ckroach.

[collapse]

When it comes to romance, it's also not anything special, but the MC does at least seal the deal, which is more than can be said for a lot of Korean protagonists.

Spoiler

While it personally doesn't bother me, if you dislike the MC having relationships outside of the main FL then you might want to give it a miss since he has s*x with another woman in the name of saving her from her extreme yin constitution. If you've read enough CNs then you know what I'm talking about.

[collapse]

All in all, it's a decent read if you're just looking for something to spend time on and don't have anything better to read. 3.5/5 <<less

Boring and dry, could be caused by the very poor translation that makes MTL looks like actual translation.

MC: Nano machine that does everything, that’s it so expect no bad things since the NM can do anything and everything for the MC.

Characters: So many s*upid people that it makes you wonder if it’s actually a Chinese Wuxia novel.

Got interested after reading the webtoon. Turns out I should have just waited. The webnovel, aside from being the average "weak" hero suddenly getting a power-up or system and turning OP and whopping those who looked down on them, has a HUGE problem with its writing.

First of all, it's descriptions are super dry, something that I expect out of webnovels but it still really bugged me. It makes reading the story very boring. There's way too much telling rather than showing, literally almost every emotion is explicitly told and then... more>> told again when it's obvious from what the character is saying. It was insulting and sucked any excitement from conflicts out because I felt like I was reading a story for kids.

Another issue I had with the writing is that it has a terrible sense of flow. It head hops too much. One moment we're hearing what the MC thinks and seeing his point of view just to suddenly jump to his enemy's pov and then right back. It feels like an entire chunk of writing is missing every time this happens. It was so bad that I had a minor headache trying to keep up with what was happening especially since everything is essentially one line long.

I'm not criticizing the story, although it's developments are generic, but the style and grammar instead. I knew what kind of tale I was getting into, a power fantasy. But, it's just unreadable. I recommend skipping the novel and praying the webtoon releases faster. <<less

Really good and exciting.

Read the manhwa, if you liked it, come here and read the rest.

Some comments are criticising it, but they are wrong. Much better than chinese novels. Not prefect but close enough.

OP ruthless MC - good side characters - satisfactory romance (come on, it's korean-fantasy, you shouldn't have expected much from beginning) - very good world building - good story and story telling.

the premise is interesting even if I don't understand how he can be that kids direct ancestor (great++++grandfather or whatever) when he was about to die from a gut wound without having any children of his own. Little logic flaws aside, the whole nano machine angle was really intriguing.

Sadly, I'm not too clear on the cultivation methods/ levels in this world. There hasn't been much explanation or exposition. I've only read 100 chapters and so far the author is more interested in face slapping and building up the MC's followers... more>> than in anything else.
Spoiler

until the end of the 3rd test (which was around c90+) I thought they were still testing to officially become students at the school, and then the instructors said if they pass the 4th test within 4 years they could graduate and leave the school. Huh? So I guess they'd already been accepted and I missed it. Anyways, the MC has already gone from zero to Master level so he's already outgrown the school in the few weeks he's been there.

[collapse]

I'm going to set this aside and maybe come back at a later date when I'm in the mood for constant face slapping and politics. Maybe it will make more sense on the second read through. <<less
