Review up to ch95:

Honestly, I actually like the characters so far, and the story's not too bad. Cliche, but entertaining enough to pass the time. MC has the slightly apathetic and mischievous perspective of an unscrupulous thief, which is fun too. But I'm downgrading it to 3 stars, because... the author writes too many brainless things. Author uses different cliches and/or interesting ideas, but mashes them together without actually pausing and thinking, "Does this make sense?"

... more>>
Spoiler

e.g, the MC has to and wants to maintain a low profile in the academy. Hence she passes herself as a commoner. Except... then the author states that this section of the academy is one only the rich can pay for. And then focuses on how the MC steals off of these rich kids, lololol!

Meanwhile, this reader just want to say... author, aren't you focusing on the wrong thing here. Exactly how is this "commoner" low profile among these rich kids?! Has this "godly thief" MC ever heard of casing the situation/venue?? Where are her analytical skills?? For that matter, where are the author's analytical skills??

[collapse]

There are several more instances where the author writes down cliche A and cliche B, without realising there's a big ass plothole in the middle of A and B. If you can grin through these facepalm moments, go on forth and read the story.

Besides that, the story's pretty entertaining. I like the MC so far, when she isn't being shoved into dumbassery by the cliches. None of the side characters has displayed much personality, but the supporting MLs show some potential. Slow story development though, but that's pretty typical of this trope. As of where I'm reading the story still hasn't branched off the typical trope, so potential readers you can skim at least up to ch95 without missing much.

Honestly, at this point I don't have much to say about the actual characters/story because... there's not much. It's the typical plot of this trope. Will update when I've read up to where the story actually shows uniqueness.

Update as of ch350:

The story does get more interesting when MC enters to the academy. The dynamic between MC and her friends is fun to read, and their friendship isn't instantaneous, so props for that. It took a while for them to gain actual trust for one another. Their camaraderie is cute.

Beyond that though, the author... continues to be disappointing. It's very clear by now that the MC is completely, brokenly OP. I do enjoy OP characters, but the MC progresses so fast and so ridiculously that it's boring.

Spoiler

e.g. MC despite never being interested in nor having experience in pharmacy and is only in the freshmen classes was able to defeat a Master Pharmacist. Granted it was in a task that she already has prior knowledge and practice of, but it's just... boring. also, if it was that easy to gain knowledge I as a college student really want to slap this broken MC. talent only goes so far, time is also a necessity. MC is "too talented" in basically everything and because of Plot Armour, no matter what she does, even if she makes mistakes they would turn out okay in the end! Comparing to Genius Doctor Black Belly Miss, Jun Wu Xie's progress and genius would be considered tame. In addition, the MC has never faced any serious setbacks or repercussions due to her actions. Even when she's found out as a thief/offends an authority, it turns out alright. Most of the time because of luck. AKA plot armour. That's how broken this MC is.

[collapse]

speaking of which, the author's "villains" are all copypaste face slap cannon fodder. their reactions are exactly the same every time, and the outcome also the same. I love face slapping, but when every time the points ridiculed by the cannon fodder are the same i.e. "he's too lowkey, too ugly, too plain to be anything but worthless!!!" then I just want to beg the author to find some creativity, please. at this point I think the author is just lazy.

good points about this story, uh... the non-fodder characters are cute/entertaining? and the world has a pretty good setup. especially the cultivation, it'ss rather cool with the classes and all. I dont usually see game/western fantasy mechanics transferred over to xianxia.

update as of ch495:

she's... so... dumb.... author.... can you please stop making your MC so dumb/ignorant/careless while passing her as a genius..... sobs sometimes you can see a hint of savviness in the MC, but then it gets buried under an avalanche of cliches....

author, you did okay with GD:BMM, why can't you put at least half the effort from that novel into this novel....

update:

i just realised I forgot to comment on the romance. because, uh, what romance? we barely get glimpses of the ML lol. at least MC and ML has a good rapport and trust, though the depth of that trust requires some suspension of disbelief. seems like romance isn't going to come until around ch1000, from what others have said. but in the meantime, some other supporting MLs are cool/cute enough to satisfy.

update as of ch603:

....I can't believe I made it to the latest update.

So. Final judgement: MC is brokenly OP with lvl9999 Plot Armour, author tries to pass her off as a peerless genius but in reality due to cliches she's 50/50 stupid/smart. it's a pity that the author is so lazy with the writing this time, because otherwise the world setup and characters have a lot of potential. a good enough read if one wants to pass the time and likes this trope, as long as you can glaze over the moments of stupidity. <<less

FIVE STARS

'The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady, ' is definitely one of my favorite Chinese novels. I love the novels with a strong female lead. I also like the fact the MC, Shen Yanxiao is a sneaky, sneaky thief.

However, this is so frustrating! I have read until ch 105, but there hasn't been a new chapter for over a month! The translations stop right in the middle of a gambling story arc where the MC is sure to do something sneaky and exciting. I hope someone continues to translate... more>> this soon, or at least posts the Raws. I tried to go to the original author's site, but it is entirely in Chinese. Even with Google Translate, figuring out the chapter subscription system in Chinese is a little too complicated. I am not sure if the payment is secure or even possible.

UPDATE:

Yay! A new chapter! <<less

Reading all these reincarnation series makes me not want to ever reincarnate into an ancient chinese famiry. Because wholly sh*t, they are all assholes. And I don't want to be poor in ancient china either because it'll be hell, but sh*t, they are all bastards who don't care.

Its even worse because before the reincarnation, she was mentally retarded, and they still wanted to kill her. A mentally retarded child.

As of Chapter 2. =D

This is one of the best novels I have ever read.

There's no harem, stupid s*x, misunderstandings, rape stuff, story recycling, and boring stuff.

MC has five good friends that are more than side characters and are not thrown away after a few chapters. They exist throughout the entire storyline. MC's teachers are funny characters and I love them; and I'm sure you'll too. Each of them have their own stories and problems. And their stories aren't fillers like other novels because they're interconnected. The author doesn't reveal all of the plot/purpose... more>> of the story at the same time; he reveals story info part by part and lets you make guesses. You don't feel like a God looking over the novel world, you feel the mystery just like the MC does. Well even MC's identity and race is a mystery at first.

MC's and her friends' spirit beasts are fun, they're interesting characters themselves. Especially you'll love MC's own spirit beast.

MC befriends demons and rules them. Builds cities and stuff. These are very unique and I didn't read these elements in other novels.

The dialogues of this novel are well written and has lots of hilarious stuff. Romance in this novel is very slow but not unreasonable.

There are other races like Gods, demons, elfs, dwarfs, dragons etc and lores which enrich the story to a great extent. In the second part of the novel the MC travels to the elf continent because she's apparently an elf (well hybrid), and it's like an entire different story there because she has to cultivate in the elf way from the start (of course her human cultivation is still strong) ; but this arc is very enjoyable and you're not going to be disappointed. It's not a filler either, it plays important role in the story. The chapters are short but the translation is fast. And the quality of translation is excellent.
Side-villains are OK, although a little annoying. They just talk too much. I'm like just f**k off, shut yo mouth, and die bitch. There are some main villains that are unlike recycling-side-villains but they're yet to be revealed.

Just read it man. <<less

The novel is over all really great. Sometimes it dragged a bit in the dwarf arc but it good.

I really love the MC and Xiu the ML. First there were no such romance but as the story progressed it bloomed perfectly. The friends of the MC were also great.

In the last part of the novel I truly cried reading the chapters the author wrote the story very beautifully. The ML looked like a ice berg but he is truly a romantic person and he really loved the MC not like... more>> other novels. So I have to give it 5. <<less

I have high hope and expectation at first seeing the rating, I thought that at least it would be a decent way to waste time even if it is not exceptionally good, unfortunately I still get disappointed

Here is why

so, it starts with a common cliche, nothing wrong with that, but nothing special, the MC get reincarnated from the modern world (I presume, since it was not stated clearly, and it was said that she is a godly thief with all kind of ability that should not be possible in our... more>> reality) into a body of a 14 years old girl, basically a useless good for nothing body that almost died thanks to her cousin bullying her because the original owner of the body is literally an idiot

Basic cliche background, nothing wrong with that, in fact, I find that to be quite interesting with a lot of potentials to develop but back to the reason why I'm disappointed in this novel

in chapter 3, there is a voice coming from inside the MC, claiming to be the Devil, he named himself as Xiu, when the MC asked for more information about Xiu, he just brushed it off and I have no idea why the MC is not suspicious nor curious about this unknown entity inside her body, ok maybe she is has given up and move on because she can't do anything about it? But what happens next truly define this novel to me, I will copy and paste a little bit of chapter 4 and then I will comment on it

Spoiler

After being silent for a moment, Xiu speaked, “Killing you is equivalent to killing me myself.”

“As of now, I am attaching myself and existing within your body. In case that you are dead, my soul will also subsequently fly away and scatter.”

This information is not bad! Shen Yanxiao was beaming as she continued to acquire information fraudulently.

‘So, after you have obtain your freedom, will it mean that you can be relieved in eliminating me?”

“I will never kill you.”

“Oh? Why?” Shen Yanxiao opened her mouth as she smiled happily while inquiring. However, there was nevertheless a complete differencebetween the naive smiles of hers and the sharpness in her eyes.

“During the time when I choose to stay in your body, we have already agreed and signed a soul agreement where I will lose ninety percent of my soul if I was to kill you.” Xiu’s voice was like the untranquil waves.

To suffer a damage of ninety percent! Shen Yanxiao seriously wanted to clap her hands. Although it was still unclear on why Xiu was able to attach and exist within her body, she could now be certain that Xiu absolutely would not make any move regardless of any situation because everything was like he had said. For killing her was equivalent to himself committing suicide!

[collapse]

So, as you can see, the MC who is a reincarnation of a self-proclaimed "Godly Thief" is basically a retard
Without any evidence nor a concrete proof, heck, not even a convincing reasoning, she just believes everything the Devil said, the Devil, the one that is usually portrayed as a cunning, sly, back-stabber, liar, and the personification of evil itself that will do anything to achieve its goal, heck, why did the Devil even tell her that he is the Devil, why not act as if he is a godly spirit or something!?

This is dumb, even if you have no f**king choice at least be a little suspicious! I have no problem with the situation itself, what infruating me is how the MC act and behave to the situation, I really hate it when the author often *tell* how awesome the MC or whatever character but not *show*, but even worse is when the MC actually act the opposite of what he/she is portrayed by the author

and of course, it happens again a few more times later, I don't know how much the novel will change for the better or worse later on but so far it is deeply flawed and very unimmersive, I just can't take this novel seriously, I do find it to be entertaining at times, especially if you don't have much expectation and just want to waste time but I just can't ignore the flaw unfortunately, especially since the author seems to be unaware of his flaw and take this novel too seriously, I usually don't have any problem reading stupid and ridiculous novel such as The Strongest System etc, because the author of that novel is aware of what he is doing and what kind of novel he is writing without being a hypocrite and shy about it, instead embrace it and just go crazy

btw the translation quality is alright, there's typo and minor grammar flaw here and there but nothing serious, which is a plus I guess

conclusion, if you could ignore the flawed logic that works in this universe then you might have some fun but just don't expect too much

Definitely a worthwhile read. Not the ruthless MC type but still great. No harem/reverse harem sh*t and the camaderie between the lead and the main sides feels good to read. And of course there's your usual 'black-belly style stuff!

550 (translated) and complete (raws)

I loved it.

To me it started as a typical reincarnation story where she has to fight her way up because she is considered a waste. However, that part is over quite fast and then the story becomes completely new and exiting. The author is always dropping small hints about the plot and making you kind of guess what is coming as the story expands, while actually being surprised about it. To me it never got bored. Once I started reading it was hard to stop,... more>> hence me going to google translator for help.

The things I liked the most:

  1. The MC is awesome, she use her previous knowledge at the fullest, she is mentally strong, can be funny, very intelligent. Ruthless to the ones that hurt her or her friends and very kind to the ones that help her, even if it is with something small.
  2. I personally liked that she used her past life abilities in this new world and that it becomes a huge advantage for her. I mean, she spent most of her past life developing her abilities, of course she needs to use them now, that's how she can overcome her initial waste state. These abilities become very useful and they can also bring funny moments.
  3. Not everyone falls in love at her at first sight!!!.
    Spoiler

    I mean, even later when she became pretty and everyone couldn't stop looking at her, they only admire her. There is no other women's jealousy for stolen men and things like that. (Well, there is only one, but is a jealousy over all she has)

    [collapse]
    . And the romance is small but it really develops nicely over time.
  4. She makes so many good friends. The supporting characters are awesome, I love them all!!!.
    Spoiler

    I'm really expecting the side stories about them, especially the illusion group and blue glass please!!!.

    [collapse]
  5. The are bad people that actually learn from mistakes. Not all, but there are!!
What is so redundant that kind of make me skip a few lines:

  1. Everyone that see her simple appearance has to criticize/judge her. After a while it gets boring because there are lines and lines of unknown people criticizing her for: being at a specific place they don't consider her worthy of, doing a test she looks too small for, or wanted to buy something expensive while wearing simple clothes. Etc.. And of course this people get slapped in the face time and time again. I actually ended up skipping lines.
  2. There are so many levels of power that I couldn't keep up with all of them. If you think that they had reached the maximum level, well, someone will appear with another higher power level. But maybe it is also because I was reading from google translate. The explanation of it, I actually ended up skipping some at the end.
Overall its a very interesting story, it has a lot of friendship, action, massive battles and a bit of romance. Funny and sad moments. You wont regret reading it.

Better wait for a lot of chapters to accumulate because they are really short and the ideas actually are still hanging there at the end of one chapter just to continue in the next.

Spoiler

And, if you cry easily then don't read the battle chapters with other people in the room. I cried so much!!!

The storyline is like a recycled version of GDBBM but I still enjoy it. But the downside about this novel is that some of the words are being redundant and for every chapter I read, there always exist tler rambling which is unnecessary (and irks me to no end) as it cuts off the flow of the story (temporary) when you're trying to imagining the scene.

Spoiler

The MC has a very refreshing attitude, she's playful but not overly heinous and she doesn't start off strong in the beginning. It was a gradual process which she learned with all the companions she befriended. It might be a bit slow in certain arcs but it all connects and the final battle in the last arc was amazing.

I love that there is no constant bickering between the main couple, they are their own love interests, there's no direct competition (although it hints that one of her friends is silently in love with her).

I gobbled up the translations too quickly and since I know a bit of conversational mandarin (sadly chinese illiterate), went ahead and listened to the rest through the audiobook (available at ximalaya). I strongly recommend readers that can understand mandarin to listen to the audiobook as it helps portray the emotions of each character through the tone of the voices and the background music.

This novel has a wonderful mix of action, adventure, comedy, as well as character development that I cannot wait to find out what happens next each time a new chapter is released.

The MC is a really likable person and I also like how she uses her previous life skills to go and steal from... more>> people, especially those who were mean to her and the reactions from those she stole from.

I feel like the author set up so many things but never got around to using them. There are so many loose ends.

This had a lot of potential, but it just felts like the author rushed things at the end. It's still pretty good though.

It's still pretty good. The MC is smart and strong. The ML is powerful but doesn't tease the MC as much as the ML's in other transmigration/reincarnation novels. He's willing to do anything for the MC. But the love that developed between them doesn't feel natural.... more>> It just happened. I'd recommend this if you're thirsty for transmigration/reincarnation novels with a strong MC and ML. <<less

Unique for a female protag. and she not chasing/transmigrated to find oneself engaged the crown prince/side prince, plus... there is actual movement, i.e. it does not all take place in one city. I enjoyed her unique way if you will of adjusting her income and the fallout from that. Overall if you are looking for a good novel with a strong female protag. check this one out!

She's funny cuz she's a kleptomaniac not as assassin in her old life aha. So while she can't do anything like create and sell heaven defying potions to sell, she just straight up robs and pickpockets her way through funding her growth X')

Reminds me of A Thought Through Eternity (Will Eternal it's called now). The way the the main character in Will Eternal robbed chickens to feed his growth ahaha.

Reincarnated female story. Easy to read. Good translation.

Some no-reason plot, such as stealing gold/gems to sale, and use the money to buy core, instead of directly stealing the core!

There's a lot of details & explains in each chapter - thus slow & can be skipped read.

The translation is rather good. This very first act is only 2% of whole raw, there may be plot development as the author grew. No idiotic kill-kill-kill. No sudden OP (apart from that necessary hidden Mr. Spock). No good-for-nothing-except-male-hunting like other female MC... more>> story. So.. 4/5 stars.

Big Fly in the oil : Translating speed. The 2.5 days/chapter for the 2760 chapters novel - that 1, 000 days! or 3 years at least... <<less

This story is really worth the read. I'm actually very very very grateful to the author that they didn't throw away the side characters. Though, the only problem I have is with the romance. It seems really forced and it felt like it just popped out of nowhere. It would've been better if there's already hints of it from the beginning and the male lead already introduced. Also, if I had the money, I would really gladly donate to the translators. Last point is, this is probably the best xuanhuan/wuxia... more>> novel with a female lead I could find. If someone wants a more serious romance then I recommend Enchantress Among Alchemist though I still think this story is better. <<less

This is your typical cliché transmigration novel:

  • Famous 21st century thief transmigrates into a trash body
  • Family trouble: scheming Uncles/Aunts, arrogant step siblings, etc.
  • Trash body actually has a secret background
  • Petty villains that never learn their lesson and always comes back for revenge
  • MC takes revenge by face slapping every one
  • MC from weak to strong with a powerful backing: OP ML, powerful and wealthy friends, mythological contract beasts, heaven defying luck, etc. (You name it, this MC probably got it)
I never understood one thing: in all the cultivation novels that I have read... more>> so far, WHY DOES THE MC NEVER KILL OFF THE FRECKIN VILLAINS BUT INSTEAD WAIT FOR THEM TO COME BACK TO CAUSE MORE TROUBLE?! This is one of the most frustrating things that I encounter in many cultivation novels, when the MC obviously have the power and strength to kill off pesky villains but instead let them go, like why?! These villains keep on being recycled over and over again to cause trouble for the MC and still never learn their lesson after being stripped of power, wealth, limbs, talent, etc. I got to applaud these villains for being dedicated and determined in chasing after the MC just to be humiliated every time, like are they all masochists or something??

Overall:

Eh, if you got the time to spare, don't mind cliché plots, and very very very slow romance, go for it. It's been 1400+ chapters and there is barely any romance going on. After 1400+ chapters, the MC is still 14-15. In the beginning of the novel, the MC was 13, it took her over 1000 chapters to age 2-3 years, so I'm kind of tired and done with this novel at this point. <<less

This novel starts slow but picks up the pace after they leave the school. It improves steadily. That ending though.....I feel like my feels were lied to.

I recommend you stick with it for at least 800/900 chapters, all the seemingly useless things will build up to something.
