In a distant future, the empires of mankind span the galaxy, and glorious Earth has devolved into a peripheral backwater.

In Shanjing city in the Asian region, Wang Zheng’s dreams of becoming a mech pilot are crushed when his college entrance exam genetic score turns out a pathetic twenty eight, barely above an animal.

To make things worse, people get the impression he attempted suicide after being rejected by the campus beauty.

Then the closest thing to a family he has, the old man in the book store across the road, goes missing, leaving him only a mysterious birthday present.

Reviewing at volume 9 chapter 10
What can I say? I have ran through the raws after reading the translated chapters. Still on going but I'll leave a good note about it here.

The base of our MC is quite OP considering the fact he has trained in a time chamber to become a super soldier. He's a bloody genius at physics as he was often alone at home and went to talk with an old bookshop grandpa (who turns out to be a physics prof and gave taught him all... more>> this knowledge including math theories when the MC was a kid).

Not at all over the top. He practices humility but when people overstep his boundaries he won't hesitate to teach them a lesson.

The story juggles around his martial and physics brilliance in school and occasional virtual mech battles where he uses the most basic battle mech in the game (and how he kicks ass against higher spec machines and garnered a crowd of believers). The scale of opponents not only come from Earth but all over the Solar System and, better yet, other galaxies much more advanced (in the future).

I'm looking forward to how our MC spreads his name and prowess in the future. <<less

Sci-fi written by someone who does not have a sound background in a science related field. There are so many fundamental inaccuracies that it's hard to handwave it all way claiming "future science", which the author tends to do. It would even be acceptable if the author claimed alternate universe etc, but unfortunately the series is set on Earth. Our MC is literally Jesus, with a dash of Superman and Einstein added in for good measure. There are no flaws nor is there any character development. All the development we... more>> see is only the MC becoming stronger as the series progresses. There is no emotional development and the MC does not get streetsmart, which is a big PITA, as the cast end up revering the MC to ungodly levels and he takes it with all the emotional range of a 21st century robot.

The plot does not develop in an organic manner. We see a lot of deus ex machinas and new power levels being introduced. The novel itself isn't quite sure on whether it wanted to go the VR/future war/unlocking the body's secrets route. In the end, it feels like a jumbled mass of plot points which have only two things in common - "school beauties", aka women who throw themselves over the MC for no reason and a Gary Stu MC <<less

Is a very fun story. The beginning can feel very lackluster cause its mostly setup and world building. But after the first 20+ chapters its gets AMAZING.

1) Awesome MC with values and swag? Check

2) Fun support cast of characters? Check

3) Moments of some of the funniest sh*t ever? Check

If you're waiting for English Translations, I would recommend waiting till chapter 65-70 for you to get the most out of it. If you can read Chinese (raws) go at it.

Finished Chapter 14.

Let’s get the good out of the way. This story has a great start. The MC in this one feels a lot like what we get from True Martial World and it’s prequel Martial World. This means that he’s both likable and intelligent.

World style feel pretty unique, though we haven’t got far enough to see how it develops. Space empires are pretty fun to see, and mech combat is pretty rare in a world where we get cultivation. I get Sky Avenue vibs from the world... more>> but we’ll have to see how they build it.

Now for the little bad. It likes it technical jargon, and is pretty interested in making physic theories sound plausible. For the types who like fully detailed magic combat like in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, you’ll probably find this to be a plus. However, others might not care for the explanations. Also so far combat isn’t the most verbose. Again this can be both positive and negative. This isn’t Against the God levels where everyone holds back their power equally at every clash only to raise the exact same power the next strike... However, the details are a bit weak, leaving it hard to fully imagine what is happening. We only get the information needed for what happened, not ‘how’ it happened.

Anyways this is a very early review, but I’m truly captured by the story. I hope the author doesn’t subplot the romance aspect because I absolutely loved the first love interest for the MC. I may be weak to the ‘mysterious girl’ introductions but she was fantastically introduced and I would hate to see her taken away for 10 books (looking at you Stellar Transformations). <<less

I must say I am in love with this novel. The first 12 chapters from bagelson really kicked the translation off. I hope that the translation speed will be fast, from those who will pick it up. The novel is a modern take on cultivation/military action novel. The interactions between the characters are awesome, the story has so much potential!

The MC is too much of a brainless Mary Sue - all everyone is talking about is him, he has ungodly levels of brains and brawns, but he throws away all the rewards that are thrown at his feet to single-mindedly pursue his goal. Author also didn't learn his physics - magnetic field has almost no effect on lasers, aside from some tiny quantum effects that won't affect concentrated beam in any substantial way (though it might just be an error in the VR game he is playing, even though... more>> it is supposed to be modeled after the real mechs). <<less

Reviewing at ch. 22 (machine translated)

An absolute blast. Most xuanhuan / xianxia I read reads like they're written by old fogies. This one has an irreverent youngish air all through out, the modern setting is fresh, and the way cultivation is integrated with tech is refreshing so far.

Really found this novel intriguing, really can't wait to read the next translations to come. Left the readers at a very good cliffhanger will definitely bring in the fans wanting to find out what happens next.

If you a futuristic setting with mecha and galactic travel, this is definitely one for you.

This centers about the MC who acquired an artifact from his mentor (old man) who taught him advance theories and the MC doesn't realize the fact the he is a genius in this field.

The MC aspires to become a mecha pilot but coupled with his assessment, he was rated as trash, I don't know if the school got a wrong assessment about him but anyway. His journey started as he was able to enter... more>> into a prestigious university but was forcefully enrolled in a different course. Coupled with various comedic plot, you must definitely read this because the development is interesting.
Overall, I give this a 5/5. <<less

The writing style reminds me of The King's Avatar, where we are slowly convinced of the capabilities of the MC as he builds up a mysterious reputation in and out of virtual mecha combat.

There is emphasis on some technical aspects as well as fast paced combat. The characters are colorful and the dialogue can be rapid-fire.

Plot-wise, the first 20 chapters sets up the setting and foreshadowing.

Edit: This isn't 5-stars, no idea how I pressed it. It's a 3 for me, 3.5 at most.

12th chapther so far it's good a little slow in some few chapters. However by now in chapter 12, it just left me hanging on the seat of my chair in suspense! I'm excited to see where it goes 4 into a 4.5 for my vote

This novel is similar to Mahouka koukou no rettousei, but in my opinion it is even better. I like the MC, who is actually intelligent and hardworking. What I dont like about the MC is the everlasting "I HIDE SH*T", which is... such a cheap method to raise the tension and generate epic moments. That really makes me mad everytime.

The love-interest is awesome, even though I think that the "love" was developed way too fast (he may get together with other girls, which is kind of lame, but well...... more>> chinese novels...).

The Story is..., well I don't really see any story until now. Its just him living his life in an academy. This novel has over 1000 chapters though, so I don't really mind a slow start. This may sound boring, but I can assure you it is not, as he fights with his mech in an online game, trains his martial arts, is surrounded by beautiful girls and is overall a genius.

If you have read my review and are now ready to start reading, I feel like I have to tell you that the translation speed is... sloooow as hell. 1 chapter a week... and the raws are only visible through an abbonement on the original chinese publisher site, which is just plain bullsh*t.

Well you should still start reading, as this novel is awesome! Also if you like this kind of novel you should try Galactic Dark Net, Swallowed Star and Everyone Else Is A Returnee. <<less

4.5 Excellent novel so far. I don't know why people said it's a slow start; he's kicking ass and taking names a few chapters in.

There are only a few annoying tropes occasionally, like random people praising MC post fight, or talking down to him just before he overturns their expectations + reactions. Only -.5 since it's much shorter than other novels, and it's not repeated several times in a row as per usual.

Also, ... more>>
Spoiler

it's a little unbelievable how he deliberately sandbags all of his test scores throughout his education just on the words of a guy who feeds him. Obviously it is just a poor attempt full of plot holes by the author, so that the MC can later reveal his glory and surprise everyone.

[collapse]

But it's a minor plot hole that can be easily overlooked in an otherwise great Gary Stu webnovel.

Excellent translation quality as well, I just wish it was a little more speedy. :)

The novel is an intriguing mix of school life, online games, technology mixed with a few xianxia elements like cultivation methods. The protagonist is cool headed and not swayed easily by insults etc. The writing is well paced and the translation is well done. Definitely worth a read!

For 12 chapters, the story has caught my interest. The MC did not quickly gained some OP item, skill, etc., he actually trained for two years (two days regular time), included with possible hidden potential. So far the story has focused on world, and character building, with comedy. There has been action, proving that the novel has a lot of potential. There is kind of a foreshadowing between the MC and his two friends that might accomplish a lot in the future. I already like the MC and his best... more>> brother, and the other brother seems cool but not much focused on him, yet.
Unfortunately, it seems it will not be picked up until May.

Update:I have been waiting for MC to pilot a real mech, but he has not. He has become strong to be able to play virtual mech battles, they were cool at first, but not anymore. I taught he joined the academy to become a real pilot, not a virtual pilot. Maybe a lot later in the story it may happen, but I am unable to contine reading because the story is not as entertaining as before. <<less

So far so good, The story seems quite a unique blending traditional xia-xia cultivation with all trappings of a sci-fi hit. It so far fondly reminds me of the underdog scenario of the books “Enders game” or “Ready Player One”; a kid looked down on society for being trash going into virtual spaces and training to the point of machine perfection.

Not to mention, Rebel scientists, genetic testing replaces IQ scores, time-locked training where 2 years= 2 days, Epic VR Mecha combat, and saving a damsel from assassins.

And that’s just... more>> what I’ve seen in the teaser chapter parts Bagelson (Blue Silver Translations) has graciously teased us readers with. I’m hoping this plot will keep steering into an interesting course~ <<less

If you liked Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, you'll really like this. This MC is similar yet different to Tatsuya, lol.

Have a read. Perfect MC in study and combat skills while being in a peaceful school setting and enjoying daily student life, also occasionally plays VR games to satisfy his Mech nerd before he pilot the real thing,

All these in a few volumes... until the "Fire Nation" attacked. (unknown threat, but is foreshadowed)

It got funny moments, serious moment, simple but cool battle moments and decent romance (no... more>> harem, just a MC who got his heart set to one female lead). Good read if you want to just enjoy a laid back story but has a late game plot in plan for the readers. Like Mahouka really, can't find a better similarity.
Spoiler

It's all enjoyable school stuff till some terrorist decided to blow stuff up.

[collapse]

On to some of the cons

Spoiler

Perfect MC, duh. If you don't like it... toooooo bad. It's here.

Not too much of a 'show', more 'tell'. At least, it's enjoyable if you don't think or care too much about details. It's the imagined future. So the topics are more of THEORIES instead of FACTS that is the norm in 2017. Gundam stuff.

Slightly messy relationships. Well for the moment anyways. He aims for one but that's quite a problem cause she's a... princessssss. Yep, it's that Gundam like plot. And then there's 2 more side female char that wants the MC.

[collapse]

Anyways. This is a perfect fix to read as a substitute for Mahouka, Knight n Magic, etc if you want another like it.

Also for future plot story after all the school stuff if you want to spoil yourself (and for me to remind myself)

Spoiler

MC is meant to be a god of war at first by the (AI) Bonehead in the Rubik Cube. The AI belong from another place/empire/not Earth, but detects that its empire is attacked. So that plan changed to training the MC to become a King of a new nation and rebuild the AI'S nation. The AI is still in planning phase, MC is still in training phase.

Ho. I hope this turns out to be a better version of Aldnoah Zero. We will see.

This is entertaining, but not that inspired. The best part of sci if is the world building. I'm still waiting for some decent world building, but so far this series has not delivered.

The main question that I hope will be answered satisfactory is the following:
Why does this society have such a large focus on their military? Based on the current setting it seems things are mostly peaceful. Humans aren't really at war with each other since the whole Milky Way seems to be in alliance. The extreme focus on... more>> military matters seems to imply at ongoing large scale warfare, but all of the characters seem to be too carefree for that.

The main character also seems a bit too Mary sueish. His only weakness seems to be that the world is incapable of measuring him effectively. Other than that, he is literally flawless. This feels pretty boring.

I think the main reason I read through this is because I hoped that world building would happen soon. So far, this seems more like modern world with mechs and the story is pretty generic.

I would honestly just read To The Stars instead. <<less

This is a story of a Mary Sue main character, he's basically Shiba Tatsuya from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei but with a personality.

The plot is good, but I love the worldbuilding more, so I wished the author would end the whole school theme thing and make the MC experience the outside world. So far that's why I can't rate this high, I hate school themes.

It's really interesting and the characters are really lively. Their personalities and character interactions are just hilarious/crazy with each other. Also how characters react to each other doesn't feel forced by the plot, it seems like a character has their really own distinguishable mind/personality. Side/support-characters could even be their own MCs in another story, which shows how great characters are. SO, characters are awesome, story is really cool + unique. it's worth a read!

Edit:
So I'm on v4c6, and nothing new has happened for the past 2 volumes now. It's... more>> the same thing over and over again only new chicks are added into his supposedly "non" harem. He basically has one, it's just he is so dead set on whatever her face is again, that you can't exactly call it a harem, but yeah that's all that happens. Chicks, then cool fighting (which is hype, but other than that nothing develops). The MC is becoming boring (because he has no goals unless u call getting into his gfs pants one, his interactions aren't funny anymore), and now it centers around him and other characters that I frankly don't give any sh*ts about (because his cool friends left). I don't know about his world anymore than what I read in the first volume and there is hardly any plot. Wake up, go to school, show off his brains, later virtually fight people, show off to his gf..... repeat. I sure as hell didn't read this for what seems to be more like a slice of life <<less
