There are some things Black Card does right, and some things it does wrong.

The system behind the Black Card itself is probably the most developed, along with the MC's personality when dealing with it. However, the story does not have anything... potent enough to keep a reader's interest. Spending and investing can only go so far, and the attempts at romance is passable but not noteworthy.

Issue here is that the rules for the Black Card's use limits where the story can go. You can't simply throw in a bunch of... more>> young masters the MC can pound to death with cash, cause rules are he can't use the money like that. As the story progresses, it devolves into a pseudo-political/social story where MC focuses on promoting his personal connections in order to take a step into the world of the rich. The only problem is that this is incredibly boring.

While I do like the girls introduced, and do want to see how the romance will develop, the rest of the story is just too boring to keep my interest. However, it isn't badly written, and I don't really understand all these 1 stars. Plot and development-wise, the story is far better than most and only lacks an edge to make it the best.

4 stars because it could just do much better, but otherwise sticks to its core of 'spending lots of money'. <<less

Well... Im not good at reviews, but ill do my best this time.

This novel is practicly about the unfortunate MC that needs to spends huge cuantities of mony like in Norway or Dubay, where there really is easy to spend, in a small city of china that is barelly consideret as passable to make investments.

The MC can not buy everythink that he wants like gifts to someone or to waste food or something similar, and is practicly monitorized 24/7 in everithing he does.

The story develops slowly, so you will need... more>> to read up to ch 70-100 to really understand how unfortuned is the ms.

And the most tragic thing is that he is punnished even if he doesnt use 5 RBM from a total of 80000, or if he is using it to buy gifts or waste food. There are also things that he cant buy like over-taxed objects, etc. <<less

This novel is just sad,

... more>> First, its obvious that the entity giving him money is forcing him into being able to lose the money once its withdrawn

Second, playing games is one of the easiest ways to burn money and just p2w, but instead he does real word stuff like going shopping and eating at expensive places.

Third, either the money value doesn't make sense or I don't understand Chinese economy because he sold his phone for £11.00, then ordered an expensive car as a taxi at a cost upward of £2.50 like wtf then he said laptop costing over £8000. Im so done for that price I can buy the best gaming desktop currently available.

This MC is just too dumb for my liking I mean bruh. <<less

It's just bad.

Here are the reasons not to read this novel:

    1. The MC is an idiot. He sees a person disappear in front of him, and then when he hears that he'll face the same if he doesn't spend money he thinks "it's obviously a prank"...
    2. The MC is a racist. Already obvious from the cell phone discussion (clearly hating Koreans and Japanese people).
    3. The MC acts like a sniveling coward, being very obsequious to villains.
    4. It's actually unpleasant to read the MC's interactions with the card.
    5. The whole novel seems like it's meant to be funny, but ends up just being weird and offputting.

it' definitely a light novel with big potential but I don't know why he can't just google ' How do I spend money infinetly' and he'll get a bunch of answers for his worries easy right ? Or hire someone to beat up the thugs in ch 10 a lot of solutions anyone can think of but the author is like forcing him to have problems to get the story going and showing how poblems arise when you have too much money but in reality it's definitely not true.

the novel... more>> is just starting it's a refreshing new style " some superpower transfers money into his account and he has to spend it in a week or he'll face a bloody penalty at first he doesn't need to spend much but at the later chapters I guess it'll get really hard <<less

It's interesting at the start and I knew this one is going to be a slice of life but the story does not really improve that much considering every week he will receive money and has to spend it all. The system seems like forceful and fearful but in actuality, there's nothing much about it. The personality of the Scepter and MC is pretty boring and the openness of the story is very restricted. It's got a lot of potentials but the ideas pertaining interactions of characters are bland, the... more>> functions and motive of the Slave Department & Scepter are vague for now and I find it unnecessary, I really don't think that the mysteriousness of it will have a big impact later on.

Overall for the story, I'll give it 2/5. It means I won't even read it even in my free time.

Translation quality 4/5. <<less

The first few chapters are not very interesting since the MC looks like a fool for me. He's got money but he's worried on how to spend it? Can't he just donate to the charities/orphanages/foundation if there's a quota to reach? He can't? Then why not start a business where he would have to constantly pay his employees, buy stuff and bribe some? Surely, there are maannnnnnny more effective and rational ways of spending money, right? Hehe, that's what I was thinking when I started reading it so I was... more>> really dissatisfied with the MC's actions, add to that the shameless qidian promotion on one of the chapters. The heck, there's also blatant racism and I'm sure this point was mentioned already in one of the earlier reviews.

Fortunately, somewhere in the middle, the MC finally shows sign of intelligence so the plot turned better. The rules and such about the black card is already partially released so the things the MC does no longer appear moronic. <<less

So many people are rating it as a one star and I'm so infuriated. This novel has a potential but some people just treat this one, as a novel all about a guy that has a card that gives him money and he needs to spend it in a week. But, this novel is not just about the card or the spending, try reading it until chapter 100 and you will know what I'm talking...
