Omni genius. As the titile said a genius born from a life and death situation. Turning the mc's life from mundane to game like elements. From cooking, driving, martial arts, medicine... etc

MC is quite ruthless towards his enemies but loving to friends and families. Also is quite a womanizer haha thier is abit of romance but mixed with different situation. He is smart and talented a bit echii in terms but is quite loyal. The guys is also by definition a lucky pervert haha. (Insirt by half haha)

He entagles with powerful people but strives to bring the best out of what he has skill and money wise. He uses his appraisal skill to find treasures in tr*sh to build his empire. And brings up people close to him to increase his skills.

If you are thinking of like "i am a superstar" this like that but a bit more action less comedy more snu snu and more No bulsh*t kind of MC. It might be wise to raise the echii tag to mature in later chapter some semi depictive snuggle events haha

Currently reading the raws through mtls considering its 3000+ its gonna take a while before I give a good enough review.


By the way thanks to the translator for pointing me this good novel :) I look forward to your translation :)

It's a modern day setting about a person who gains the mysterious game-like ability to learn skills after having a near-death experience. It's not a new idea, but it is always fun and interesting to read stories like these.

A guilty pleasure, very similar to Very Pure and Ambiguous: The Prequel. It's set in the modern world where a poor kid gets a cheat ability where the power of repetition increases your skill (just like real life, but faster). And so we get to read about the MC learning to cook for the first time, and makes everyone drool with his food. He fired a gun several times, then became a sharpshooter. Observing things, then it became a scanning ability complete with useful labels. Followed the martial art teachings,... more>> and slowly become a master. And so on.

In the midst of all this, we get to see the MC's entanglements with beautiful women, good friends, petty rivals, gangsters, neighborhood uncles and aunties, business tycoons and so on... while he starts running a business selling ramen. I was astounded when I saw it has 3000+ chapters and still ongoing, but after reading 100+ chapters of MTL, I understand it will take a long and meandering route.

Don't expect a deep, philosophical story, this is one of those novels where it's all about the MC and the reaction of the hapless fools who try to cross him. You will read about his successes and using his abilities without too much worries. You will read about women and their fluttering hearts as he impresses them with his manliness and humble self.

Be warned (relationship) :

There is one 'incident' (ch170+) which the MC had no control of (which is dubious considering his abilities and strength). What made this worse (for me) was that this was straight out of nowhere and the woman only briefly appeared a handful of times before, and the MC has yet to even get intimate with the established number 1 girl.


As of ch172, the fighting is limited to basic martial arts, brawling and 'the brick' fighting off petty criminals and gangsters. I have no idea how much emphasis there is on violence or how much the power would scale later, but I'll read on to find out. It's one of those novels that you know that won't tax your brain too much, it's like a popcorn action movie. <<less

The start was good but it all goes downhill from there.

If you hate wimpy MC's then this is not for you.

Especially so as the MC keeps getting bossed around by the EXTREMELY IRRITATING FEMALE LEAD (I would've cursed at her so badly if it weren't because of the rules). And Harem/Romance tag? You will sorely be disappointed.

TLDR: MC is a wimp against women. A very rage inducing story.

Grammar: 2/5
Writing: 1/5
Story: 0.5/5

This is a guilty pleasure for me to read. Pretty much just a wish fulfillment story. Grammar is pretty bad at places, the awkward wording and phrasing is prevalent throughout the series. The writing is sub-standard, quick in places while exceedingly slow in everything but combat. While it has the standard Xianxia tropes and Chinese author habits of writing, it still has a little bit of uniqueness that gives it an oddly comforting atmosphere. The story, is simply wish fulfillment. RPG powers in modern life,... more>> making money problems go away, making friends, being surrounded by beautiful girls, overcoming your bullies, and that kind of stuff. Don't look for a deep story here, just enjoy the bad guy stomping. <<less

Can basically be summed up in three words, "blah blah blah, " why you ask? Because you'll be reading it about twice a chapter on average as the author apparently loves to pad chapters with it. That may be an overstatement, but it certainly feels that way.

3.5 rating if I could do half stars.

The Good:
A different reading experience. A good novel to read to pass the time.
?What if you obtained a gamer character body and skill system in real life?
So far, this story takes a slower approach than other similar stories, by focuses on crafting/making money.
It becomes more enjoyable if you imagine the author to have darker humor, and at times is making fun of his own novel, and other generic/common repeating elements in these types of stories...

I wish that these... more>> good elements were better explored and developed in the story.
- MC's reactions to game system
- MC's attempts at unlocking skills
- Better exploration of the game mechanics (Including quests, leveling up, stats, skill progress) Example:

Unlocking Intermediate BBQ just cause he got culinary intermediate: Custom Made plot armor

- Better use of Measurements/numbers/details.... Example:

Like riding his bike at 177mph, and taking longer than a few minutes to catch up to normal people running on foot...


The Bad:
- A bit of a flip flop on MC Intelligence. MC figures out a few obscure plots, as long as the plot doesn't involve the main antagonist.
- Lack of urgency to max skills, especially combat skills.
- Shallow Harem members. Its not the worst I've come across. The do have personalities, and interact with other characters, and also contribute to the plot... But somehow they are still lacking.
- The first mini-arch was well written, then comes the silly:

Save a r*pe vic... Harem member 2 get, Go to a BBQ event, end up 30 chapters of a bad Shokugeki no Soma where MC accepts a "loosing face" bet vs the best BBQ master who works for the main antagonist. Followed by saving a strong police chick from another r*pe scenario, harem member 3 get


All in all, a light read that isn't bad, probably written for a younger audience. <<less

TL;DR: the motivation and impression you'll have for reading this depends on why did you pick up reading this novel.

... more>>

If you like adventure type novels, you'll surely hook to this one because it covers a lot of genre from oriental legends to western legends. Despite the MC being OP, action scenes are quite good. For romance, it's quite bad because it's taken for granted and usually goes with the "Hero save the Beauty" plot and after a few a chapters will be forgotten. A lot of characters that have been introduced are not used well specially those girls that have great interaction with him. So if you're like me who are reading this because of the Harem tag, you'll really be disappointed (WTF kind of harem plot where you'll introduce a beauty then have interactions with the next 10 chapters then leave it hanging like that and be forgotten). So probably after 800-1000+ and you're reading this out of Harem;Romance tag, you'll get bored and drop it.

I give this a solid meh. Still in my stallion novel mode, so I decided to pick up this. Do not be fooled by the synopsis: the MC seems really OP and confident, but at the beginning (or in the first 70ish chapters) he's still really frickin weak and cowardly. He gets injured and bossed around and shy and panicky all the time, which is exactly the type of wimpy MC that I'm the most annoyed by. Also, he's not at all a genius mentally, I like my MCs clever... more>> and discerning. Come on, I want a harem here. From what I see, the MC might get a couple girls, but his mental weakness makes the girls the dominant party. Of course, ordinarily I would be all for it, but not when I'm looking for an OP MC harem. I'm going to continue my search for confident smart MCs (VPAATP is a good one). <<less

First sorry for my grammar

The story is about a boy who get an levelling system in real world and its make him OP, but he not really use his levelling system to its full potential, he still cultivate like the other and he need to comprehend to break through bottleneck, not like what I expected. The story pace is slow, so if you expect fast story, this is not for you, after 2000 chapter, its only about 1, 5 years in the story. So I'm kindda bored reading this, and the MC always go adventuring, not what I'm expect from a modern xianxia. And in the late chapter its became a revenge story because some sect kill MC clan.

The romance is boring and he not even touch his main heroine and playing with the other girl, and the girl is forgotten after some chapter and brought back when they need MC help.



If you into a story about MC who like adventure, hard working and not too focus about his harem maybe you should try this.

First 10 chapter was good. 10-60 was weak and very slow. I will see what happen past that. The character is very... japanese-like, and is very timid. He doesnt even try to exploit his power, and this semi-fantasy element with reality doesnt work very well. You'll see what we meant when a knife attacked on the MC take away 8/10 of his HP but a pipe slam into the enemy's head only daze them.

Kind of hard to suspend my disbelief sometime.

Even considering that this is just a generic wish fulfillment novel, the writing is extremely amateurish. The wimp MC who only wins through plot armor doesn't help either, and everyone acts in such a s*upid way that it is very difficult to suspend your disbelief.

It's retarded.

I'm still reading and I like the core idea but all in all, It's retarded.

I know that it's maybe normal for there's a lot of beauty around the MC with this kind of novel but I couldn't accept that he met beauties out of no where, for no reason and quickly like him.

... more>>

Xiao Muxue want to stay the night at his house after he save her. If it was me I'll be cautious of a violent guy that beat people, extorts and act like he is a hero of justice afterwards. She met him for the 1st time for GOD SAKE and her uncle is beaten black and blue and she barely cares.


At the beginning MC has a school sweetheart and intimate with her, it's better if there's just one heroine instead of adding more with this kind of character setting and give more depth to them, of course this is just my input.

Also, MC feels like a wimp with weak will against women. Man up.

Well it's not my cup of tea, might resume, might not. <<less

The current Translator said he would be dropping this at chapter 105 (maybe 108?) probably due to something in the story. Just tossing this out there at the start.

Gaming Grind + Real Life = Chance for those with patience and perseverance to learn a skill, just quicker now. Alot quicker. The MC dies, revives, now the world has game elements for him (and probably only him).
He makes a terrible noodle (like ramen noodle) and gains the Noodle Making skill and within an hour hes making Ramen that could be... more>> sold for profit.
After listening to a martial artist explain and go through the motions once, he can duplicate it at a beginner level.

Its a cheat system that most if not everyone would have fantasies about at least once if they played a game or two in their life.

As of now its kinda just getting started. The first like 70 chapters are introductions to people, places, grudges, and generally the MC trying to figure out how to best use his new life+ cheat. Even with these being kinda like an over-long prologue of sorts I had some good laughs and chuckles while reading to chapter 81 and hope to continue reading this until it ends.

I just hope someone picks it up after the current translator stops. <<less

Apart from the game mechanics, which seem interesting, this novel reads like a Japanese anime (romance, comedy, ecchi). MC is like a typical spineless male who gets bossed around by the tsundere girl, has no resistance to the cute girl, etc. He's brutal to other men, but becomes completely different when dealing with women. The author's descriptions of the interactions as well as the dialogue are simply copy-pasted from Japanese anime. I gave it a try despite seeing the negative reviews, which I don't usually do. This reinforces my opinion... more>> that only negative reviews actually mean something. <<less

ignore me. Having a bit of a break from it. Need place reminder.

ok so I thought I should add something. The MC has a huge harem. But doesn't touch the Main Female bit annoying considering that he's done everything else that walks instead. I liked how it was a modern world with cultivation but recently it just been mysterious secret areas and it just seems too lack something. And face slapping has to happen at least every other chapter. If he killed them the Second time they came after... more>> him instead of 1527383936 times face slapping then a lot of bullsh*t could of been avoided. I still like it and will read the rest.

Pretty laid back novel.

The story building is pretty slowly so we don't have an over-power MC after 60 chapters...

We have here a dense MC who really came from an ordinary life, live an ordinary day even after getting his cheat code.

I like the wait the MC get his stuff but I find it hard to believe that even after what happen you can't see the potential of it. It's like finding a chest full of wealth, you know it's a fortune but you take one germ and buy a pencil... more>> with it...

A lots of potential, stay tune... <<less

Uggh... the MC is such a beta wimp. It is painful frankly. The beginning chapters were strong IMO but were then ruined by instances that make NO sense and attempts to create humor by using the ol' japanese trope of "girl beating/forcing a guy for reasons that are beyond s*upid and the guy just takes it". The female lead is a BAD tsundere; the annoying kind rather than endearing.

The MC so far has left me unimpressed. With his lack of a backbone when dealing with girls and seemingly ridiculous use... more>> (or lack thereof) of his "powers", he seems like a boring and cliche Japanese style harem protag.

Maybe it gets better later on, but with what I've read so far and only about 80+ chapters translated (well. not MTL) and the unknown circumstances of if someone will pick it up after it is dropped by the current translator (confirmed), I can't really recommend it. <<less
