Volume 1 is a well polished and better thought-out version of the classic "man accused of crime he didn't commit" type of story. If you haven't read anything like this before then I would highly recommend reading it.

MC saves a girl from being r*ped, rapist runs away and comes back and runs over the MC with a car. MC is paralyzed from the neck down and his family cannot pay the costs. Turns out the rapist is the son of the city mayor, so naturally he has connections to gangsters and has sh*t tons of money and connections so he can win any lawsuit. The rapist manages to get the woman to change her testimony to accuse MC of being the rapist and uses gangsters to kill the MC's grandma. The MC is now f*cked because his grandma is dead, nobody is going to pay for him to stay in hospital anymore, and he's now convicted of r*pe and sentenced to more than 10 years in prison. Then the rapist hires gangsters to kill the MC in hospital, and that's where the story begins.


In this story, the MC begins as non-violent hero-type and then turns to violence after finding that he cannot rely on the corrupt justice system. As the plot typically goes, the MC's grandma gets killed by an arrogant powerful rich kid and then gains a power so he can take revenge etc.

I think it's pretty interesting that this novel manages to take the typical xianxia novel opening and turn it into a modern day version whilst keeping things realistic. The appearance of people with special powers however marked a clear deviation from reality. I suppose one may consider the rest of the story as merely the MC's hallucinations after entering a coma.

I will update this review as I read more chapters but I have high expectations for this novel.

UPDATE: From chapter 5 the MC gets his sh*t together and accepts that violence is necessary to protect the innocent and to uphold justice.


When Li Anping stopped, there was only Chang Zheng still standing.

He pointed his gun at Li Anping, his hands trembling uncontrollably: "Kill me if you have the guts."

Li Anping coldly looked him in the eye: "Originally I wanted to talk to you a little first."

"I... " Chang Zheng howled at Li Anping.

Ignoring him, Li Anping rushed forward before Chang Zheng was able to fire and twisted his neck.

Observing the surroundings, Li Anping waved his hand and Chang Zheng's corpse flew out, smashing onto a wooden box and landed in a mountain of tr*sh.

"Then I realized, I have nothing to say to scum like you."


The violent retribution is tastefully done, reminds me of early Berserk and God of Slaughter. 11/10 at this point. <<less

i had completed the book and now this is what I want to say about this book. if you scare that will ruin your interested of this book, you can just ignore the spoiler I write, I only just want to say what I thought about this novel though.

... more>>

in this universe, there are 12 demon god that rule all universes. They are the being in 10th dimension and their power have no limit, just one thought and the universe will change how they like. You can say that they are Suzumiya Haruhi but more powerful and and only one can stop them is themself. They have no name, in fact they describe each other by the color (black, blue, green, yellow, red,...). Yes, the evil in the thing when he bought in the first chapter is the Black demon god



there're 3 way to become demon god

1. one is all and all is one: you must become one with universe, so that you will have power and knowledge in the universe, just like Lucy in movie Lucy

2. quantum universe: you will connect with another "you" in parallel world. You become like a "domain server" in the internet name "you". Every times you connect success, the power, knowledge, wisdom of "you" in another parallel world will share to to all of you. The more you connect the more powerful you are

3. ultimate being: you become the 10th demension's being

First, Li Anping uses the second way and after some "help" of demon god White (the most powerful in demon gods), Li Anping become the 13th demon god Silver



Li Anping just like the Emperor in the Warhammer 40k and demon gods are Chaos God. He want to create an utopia that no evil or crime exist, protect human both from outside and inside. People on earth call him is Li Anping Emperor because how powerful he is and his unchanged goal for leading humanity to the good side

Not only is this story a cliche of the MC getting a epic item that will make him stronger, the premise of acquiring the item is extremely s*upid. The MC unknowingly get an evil item and just when he had gotten the item, his entire world just suddenly collapsed giving him no choice but to use said evil item despite his morals. What a f*cking convenience. This unrealistic premise goes on to make his moral degeneration feel like a joke and a childish attempt to create an anti hero, not... more>> to mention Black's annoying interjection about evil in the world despite proving to not be all knowing.

Overall the story of this novel feels extremely forced, the characters don't have any depth at all as the author does not give time for the characters to develop, and the villains are the standard strong family bullies. <<less

What is more evil than evil itself the extreme good.

We follow our MC who is the most noble and brave person in the world, who ends up becoming the most evil and cruel person that ever existed, born as a demon, he kills like he breathes, he eats people like snacks (literal sense).

A rare story that can easily show us that by becoming extreme in any aspect, we become the things we hate the most. No heroin, millions dead, humanity is its pen.

People who criticize the fact that he is... more>> naive wait for 30 chapters and you will see that he will start his journey becoming slowly but surely a monstrous being, ruling over all the timelines, time and space have no meaning for him, justice is the only thing that can survive on this world.

The author intentionally shows us that he is a person with a strong ideology of justice and the author's message is strong, nowadays full of people who advocate justice but become what they fight and hate.

Power System : 10/10

World Building : 10/10

Originality : 10/10

Character : 8/10

Well I have to say that it was hard... hard to read this far...

At first the MC is young, naive and filled with a sense of justice of morals and laws. He then experiences the cruelty of society, the corrupt laws and people. While going though this experience he gets a 'golden-finger' which is super OP.

However his character doesn't change along with the plot... that's the problem. He is still naive and believes that the police and laws can 'fix' everything. The only change in his personality is basically he... more>> starts to only kill the 'bad guys' and build up to his goal to kill the person he wants to get revenge on.

Overall, the plot is good however the character development can't keep up, and when there is a change in personality it is forced and creates a unconformable reading tension (well for me...). Cuz what's the point of reading a book if you don't like or enjoy the MC (to me his basically a naive annoying brat... tbh) <<less
