The Cave King Will Live a Paradise Life -Becoming the Strongest With the Mining Skill?-


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

Heal, the prince of the kingdom of Sanfaris was born with the unfortunate crest of ‘Cave King.’

Because of this crest, he was relegated to being lord of a remote island by his father the king.

Of course, there were no people there, and no trees or plants. It was an island with just a single cave.

However, the moment that Heal picked up the pickaxe inside of the cave, the ‘Cave King’ crest was activated. Its effect was specializing in mining, allowing you to efficiently mine all kinds of ore.

Among the ore that could be mined on the island, there was ore that increased your magic and even ore that extended your lifespan…

Heal would become so engrossed in mining, that he would eventually create the strongest country.

There were simply too many characters introduced that this novel turns into mush. There is nothing going on, no goal, no premise of a great story, no epic adventure, just a badly written slice of life.

Every aspect is rushing too much. A newly introduced character only got, at most, 2 chapters worth of screen time, no in-depth background story, no proper description, got named then immediately turn into a background character. Events come and go very quickly which makes all of them insignificant such as the Levithan battle that end... more>> in the most let down ever. The plan of construction on the most important location in the story, the island, is totally vague no one knows where is where. His mining ability is also stagnant for some time now (I'm looking at you Kuma Bear that forgot to level up for 200 chapters).

You can read it to kill time but I'm not going to recommend it to anyone. <<less

The story started out fine. It was like walking to the park, sitting on a bench and eating your sandwich and drinking a beverage named Rimuru Lite.

Then it reminds you that it has a typical Japanese MC. Oh god, the early parts of the story had almost made me forget.

  1. It was ass pull after ass pull
  2. Nevermind the basic emotions and logic, everybody should be mindless robots and be friends with each other because the MC says so.
  3. It was ass pull after ass pull
  4. Repeat items 1-3
This story had potential from... more>> the start but it fell to the trap of a typical Japanese MC.

The thing about this novel is, It's too simple. It's so simpel that it's so predictable.

Now, I'm not saying this novel is bad, but this novel uses the same principle and format over-over and again. It uses the "Chekov's Gun" principle, which is the basic of basic to write a story. (I'm sure there are other principle that is more specific to this case.)

But seriously though... It's so simple that I don't know if it's bad or good. The other hundreds of novel that I have read, struggle for... more>> this kind of thing. But, this novel is playing it too safe. It's sticking it to the rule too much.

I just know, if the MC found an item, then; either the next chapter or the same chapter, it will appear a situation to use that item that MC just found.

"Well aren't you glad that you found an item which has a very specific use for a specific situation, right before that specific situation occurs?"

It's not a bad concept. But, if the author keep using the same format over-over again, then it will make the story predictable.

Every chapter will always be filled, "Oh, thank God the MC found this item a while ago, to use that item for specifically this kind of 'specific' situation." feeling. For us, the readers, this same feeling will always appear in every chapter.

(It's Deus Ex Machina!)

But... At the same time, this novel only just had a few chapters translated. It has potential to grow. So, I will keep reading it for now. <<less

this your typical beta male MC who always apologizes and asks for forgiveness on every gawdamn thing even though he literary didn't have to, yep it's you typical MC who begging to be accepted type.

That said the plot is really interesting so does this world powers or skills. If you have endurance for this kind of thing then good if not then you have been warned lol

It's a good novel though be forewarned that it is fairly childish. For a exiled left for dead prince, he is quite naive. Not to mention the convenience of his power handwaves anything that may be a problem. My biggest issue would be

... more>>

how everyone in the novels seem to act so childish. He befriends random monsters instantly through take or communication. A goblin princess happens to crash land into his exiled island and he happen to have a special stone to cure her. What bullshit. I feel like this would happen alot so I won't be reviewing this any further.

Yup, dropping this from the reading list. I was hoping for more of a crafting and kingdom building kind of story with interesting insight into bringing a bunch of lost people together. It started out kinda fun, but I'm starting to get a sense of the author's childish philosophy when it comes to race relations. I mean it's just too convenient and easy, but also suggests something rather insidious.

Up to the latest chapter, from what I gather, the author seems to think the solution to race relations is just simple:... more>>

    • What's in the past is in the past. You can easily forgive that your races have murdered and been murdered by other races. Once you find a powerful enough "Master" and agree to be tamed by him (i.e. His s*aves) you can easily forget all past conflicts and live in harmony under your benevolent master.
    • The second thing about race relations from the author is even more insidious. This involves the evolution/ascension stones that grants a monster the immediate transformation into a higher form. Apparently all the "monster races" will desire to become the "master's race" to be of better use to him. So far, these stones have only been used to create potential waifus for the human master. 'Cuz you know it'd be gross if his waifus had monster race bodies instead of human race bodies.

Think about that in terms of real world race relations. If you're ens*aved by a master race, you'd all get along. If you all desire to be like the master race, you'd be more useful. Seriously, wtf? <<less

Spectacularly incoherent!

There is no real plot, only a sad excuse of a MC fumbling around with no particular goal. In order for me to explain all the inadequacies of this novel, it would require text that would exceed it in both length, and in interest.

For an isekai type novel, it's surprisingly written good for this sub genre as most of them are tr*sh, however it still has some problems, like lack of tension/plot. In a way similar to "Ive Reincarnated as a Slime!??" novel (name something like that), but a little downgraded version.

There is a style of minecraft play where you start on a tiny isolated island with no other land available and build everything up from there. Its joy is found in building something big from something small and worthless. This novel is basically that concept in a world with skills and magic. I very much believe this story's author has played the game, or a similar one, this way at least once.

In the beginning, on an isolated rock that no one cares about, the protagonist is still in easy... more>> mode making for a nice relaxing slice of life. As the title includes the words "paradise life" and "becoming the strongest" most of the story is likely to be laid back with very convenient abilities and events, but there will probably eventually be politics and stuff when he gets big enough to be noticed. I expect the story to grow in complexity even as his abilities and island does. <<less

Well I can't say that everyone would like this novel, but for me it was a pretty good find.

The story was kinda unique for me, since I usually read novels where MC is so focused on revenge. The MC finds his new life goals to accomplish and friends to accompany him. Also the novel involves some world-building which is a plus for me...

I am certainly looking forward for future updates..

Shouldn't expect any hardcore plot in here or whatever. Essentially it's a slice of life isekai with Minecraft elements which is pretty novel. Everything's really predictable and gets resolved within 1 to 2 chapters and MC is cookie cutter protagonist who has next to no personality, but idk maybe it's just been a while since I've read slice of life but I like it so whatever.

Definitely, as the other reviews say, a very typical Isekai-style novel (without the transported aspect). Checks all of the boxes:

    • Increasingly many female supporting characters as the story progresses, almost all attracted to the...
    • Beta MC (who, while not as bad as some, is dense af and of the "explains something; target doesn't understand; "do I fail at explaining?" sorta pathetic mindset [arguably a result of his childhood; still irritating]) who barely ever faces any challenges due to his power, which functions as...
    • EZ Wish fulfillment PLUS Deus Ex Machina galore! The plot is very predictable once an element is introduced, partially due to a lot of foreshadowing, but also because the MC will use his ability/system to solve the problem (in one of very few different ways). But also this story would benefit if the author planned further ahead; the solution to each problem is presented almost immediately after the problem crops up. There has been only one plot point I can think of that provided even a little multi-chapter suspense beyond "when will the MC realize x".
This being said, it is a pretty novel story and (especially relative to most other stories of the genre) fun to read. It has the classic elements of the genre, presented in a way that they're just minor annoyances in a decent (if slow) story, rather than infuriating reasons to stop reading.

It's kinda tr*sh. It's super predictable, and full of cliches, and annoyingly simple. The story so far goes a little along the lines of:

MC goes mining,

MC finds new mineral/stone,

In the same chapter, a random event happens,

The material found this chapter solves the problem that appeared this chapter,


It's super brainless. The MC is an unlikable beta protagonist.


He literally faints from seeing a naked girl in chapter 14.

The plot is pretty easy the MC build his kingdom on an desert island and for various reason he gets mosters as subject but the novel has a lot of flaws.

  1. Pretty much everything happen because the MC find special ore/stone in the mines. This would be ok but the island contein 99% of the world ore.
  2. The MC is Op for no reason. He was the weakest of the entire family and after using 483838 magic stone he simply surpassed his fathers/brothers.
  3. Killing some flying bird created more problem than Killing the Leviathan (most powerfull moster of the sea)
  4. Ascending stone make moster "evolve" cool right? Nope 2 goblin girls became beatiful human girls, why? God only know. An Orc became of course a beatiful human with wings. So theres no evolution they get a race change and some s*upid buff.
  5. For now there are 3 major race in the island Kobolds, Orcs and Goblins. Now this would be ok but these races are MORTAL ENEMY of each others. They were in constant war for no reason and one of the kobolds even killed the goblin general sons but ofc the MC is the Pope and now they are all friends.

Um i've only read a few novels so I can't say much against these guys who are hating on this and are probably hardcore novel readers. However I reckon this novel is very good, definetly one of my favourites so far with not much pointless dialect and the plot isn't shit. This novel is very entertaining to me plus it gets updated very fast which is a good thing, nothing MC has done so far which pissed me off and I like how every chp he discovers more stuff while... more>> mining, its like going through a cereal box to get the new collectible card everyones collecting :) <<less
