The Master of Metaphysics Just Wants to Quit the Circle

Description

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

Chu Ruochun was born in a Heavenly Master sect with serious infighting. He became a victim of the infighting and died unexpectedly. He was reborn on the body of a draft star who was caught in a framing storm. If he wants to survive in this world safely, the first thing he needs to do is to solve the current problems.

So, he opened the live broadcast room to face the netizens who scolded him.
Netizen: You said you didn’t hit your roommate. What’s the evidence?
Chu Ruochun pointed his chin at the camera, raised the corners of his eyebrows slightly, and smiled like a spring breeze: “In three minutes, the evidence will appear.”

Netizens didn’t believe it, and scolded non-stop for three minutes in the live broadcast room. Three minutes later… – The draft star Chu Ruochun finally got out of the entertainment circle, and the black fans celebrated him by posting him on the trending searches.

Not long after, they discovered that although Chu Ruochun had left the entertainment circle, he often saw hot searches related to him. Not only did he not fade out of the entertainment circle, but he became even more popular! Today he is holding hands with a top male celebrity, tomorrow he will look into the eyes of that actor, and the day after tomorrow he will cuddle with a certain business tycoon… All fans: Garbage! Don’t rub our brother’s traffic! How shameless! Hello, does anyone care about him? When the fans of all the families were eager to kick Chu Ruochun out of the earth, all the stars immediately sent an apology to him on Weibo!

My heart is full of bitterness: Do you know how hard it is for me to say a word to him! ?

Feng Qi, the double film emperor, is the son of the Feng Family the metaphysics family. However, he is an alien in the metaphysical world. He can’t divine and catch ghosts. Even though his body is often heavy and cold, and he has bad luck, he still insists on believing in science. Until he met Chu Ruochun. The other side’s long white fingers crossed his eyes, and the warm and soft breath wrapped him: “Mr. Feng, what do you see now?” Feng Qi opened his eyes. Very, very good, the world outlook that has been adhered to for more than 20 years was immediately smashed!

Later, there was a rumor circulating in the entertainment industry: Listening to Master Chu’s words is better than reading for ten years. When the reporter interviewed Chu Ruochun, he smiled: “I’m not so divine. I just like to study traditional Chinese culture, and we should believe in science.”

I really love the first half or maybe even 3/4 of it. Then suddenly the plot turn weird with many plot hole. The story pace not rlly well written too hasty, well after all it's only 55chapter. The ending n romance is meh too. Mix feeling about this. Have high potential but author just butcher it trying to fit all elements in a somewhat short novel. Even his death by the sect brother betrayal don't rlly have proper justice :v the culprit don't even go to jail or anything. Just... more>> left hanging there. <<less

Flows like a movie. After the final reveal the climactic scenes go by in a flash. Then ambiguity, then time skip along to the HE.

There's a part of me that dislikes the ML a. Little and I know the author is intentionally doing that at this point. It's probably the first time I've seen such a small minded ML in a supernatural novel. I've seen rationalists and skeptics before, but they were never so dumb they couldn't critically think for themselves and have doubts at times. It's early days, but it is starting to annoy me that the ml's guard is so up against the MC despite barely knowing him or talking with him... more>> that he's just so sure everything the MC does is ill intended. He doesn't critically thinks, questions, or even just straight up ask / converse his assumptions of him with him. For me, it's the first time for me to have this kind of ml. As of now, there's literally nothing attractive or charming about the ml. His stunch skeptism isn't even written funny and that's his entire personality as of now. Then, the ML is totally fine with him out of nowhere?? As if he didn't absolutely disdain the MC's existence the last time he saw him? I feel like the author must've saw how much the ML was unlikeable and just made him neutral to the MC the next chapter without any leadup. <<less

I have no idea what to feel about this.

It's good and I think both characters have their disntinct personalities. I love the MC and the ML. Although,

... more>>
Spoiler

At first, ML is really small minded or at least, really stubborn and skeptical. But I won't blame him. Realistically, I would also be like that if I were him.

But I really wanted to more know about his pov specifically the last but alas.

[collapse]

I love MC for the reason that his character is unique? In a way that in the later chapters, it'll be know that

Spoiler

he was literally not as good. By good, I mean kind and all that stuff other protagonists are known for. He's like... Just human for me. He's really like a puzzle. At first, you'll think: Oh, he's nice, helping others.

But later on you'll be: Oh. Oh!

He's not as nice as we think of. I mean it's already obvious from start. That he isn't that nice.

Reading the story, you can see that it feels like he was blank to others, feels like he has no feelings, completely detached.

He is. And it'll show in the ends of the story, he's not lawful good, neutral good or chaotic good or whatcha.

[collapse]

Spoiler

He's Chu Ruochun. The Celestial Master who suffered five hundred years waiting for his peace.

And that came in the form of his senior brother.

This is the basically the story of his happy start and not his happy ending.

[collapse]

Overall, it's a good story. Nice enough to read until the end.

Feels rushed at the end but still a solid 4.5/5. <<less

This is my cup of tea! Entertainment industry + ghosts + celestial masters. Not to mention an unlucky ML instead of OP hahahahahahaha recommend this to you who are looking for a break with all the angst and palace schemes.

P.S.: I MTLed and dang the second half hit me too fast. I know that this was short one so the plot should be cramped (yes there is a plot) but the second half is too fast. Well what I am just curious is -

Spoiler

what happened to the master behind the scenes in some cases like that little boy who was trafficked and actually had a Gu worm. Also, didn't they mention that the villa case and the singing show case which He Jun both involved with has a mastermind behind these? What happened to it? Or was it resolved and I just missed?

[collapse]

All in all, this is a good read. The first half seemed like a supernatural showbiz novel that I like to read, and expected this to be. But, I don't think it was a built up for the second half.. Well maybe it is.

Definitely Unexpected from what I expected. The Summary didn't do justice.

Also, with how easily MC helping people, I definitely didn't expect the Hidden Deep Plot that was a Twist of this story.

MC had a past where he did a thing that was unique aka usually being played by ML Gong in many other CN novel, but in this novel he's the one who do the thing.

... more>>
Spoiler

It was mentioned (aka not written as flashback) he did many thing that can be called an Evil act 'just' to resurrected ML.

[collapse]

It was such a Twist but a Refreshing one.

He's truly OP but not annoying nor boring.

He's not Saint... Not with kind of past he had. But he definitely easily help people.

He's Super Calm and like to Smile Calmly. The only other expression he shows was when he finally properly 'Reunited' with ML.

Anyway it was Truly Enjoyable novel and succeed to Entertain me till the end. So yes, I do Love it! <<less

This was a really good read. We're there some plot holes? Yes.. Yes there were but they didn't take away from the story. The plot twist was pretty cool. However it left alot of unanswered questions of what happened to the metaphysical society and villains. Basically I wish the story was longer with more details on some things.

The first half and the second half almost turned into two different novels. Talk about plot twist. Lol..

It's still good read. I like the genre so I'm just happy to read another one.

The MC could be said gentle but he's also a ruthless one? ML almost has no role expect for being a damsel in distress. But given the plot, and the length of the novel, it was understandable. Anyway, MC is godly.

It was not bad :)

I don’t have much to say, but just that I really liked the first half of the novel, before the whole „revelation“ thing happened ... more>>
Spoiler

Idk... just, I really liked the ML at the beginning and MCs interaction and relationship with him... suddenly he turned into a cold type person, only softening with MC... and MC revealed his „dark“? Side? Idk, but like wanting ML to live etc... I feel like, even though we know their background and their relationship in the past, their sudden love for each other still came too sudden for me and didn’t make much sense... Also many things were glossed over... I liked the progress, before ML „regained his memories“, but after that... idk :/

Also... I like how MC respected the original body’s wish to act (even though, wasn’t it actually all for money for OG??) I wish they wouldn’t have forgetter the part of him taking over the body... I was waiting for the moment that the little brother realized MC was not his brother, but still accepted it, but this moment never came :/ tho not surprising, it rarely happens that this topic will be mentioned

[collapse]

so yeah, I really liked the beginning, how MC was the smiling and gentle type, but also all-knowing and able to foresee everything. In the latter half, things happened too fast for my taste... I’d personally give it 3.5/5 Stars ^^‘ maybe I’m just in a picky mood right now haha

The translator did a wonderful job, so thank you very much for translating!! <<less

This story was an ok read. Enjoyable enough but nothing special. My biggest gripe is that reading this felt like I was speedrunning an entertainment industry novel. Everything happened so quickly and sometimes if you aren't paying attention you may even miss some details because it was like one sentence.

... more>>
Spoiler

One instance of this that I can remember off the top of my head is when the story said that Chu Ruochun's appearance was changing to his original appearance before rebirth. Literally one sentence spent on that detail. Not even an attempt to provide us with some imagery.

[collapse]

55 chapters isn't super short but the story itself just seemed incredibly fast because the author did not dwell on the events of the story at all. Really did not spend any time prettying up the language or providing details in the form of imagery or otherwise. Even the singular kiss in the story was a brief, one-sentence moment without any sort of atmosphere.

3/5 stars. Would recommend if you're feeling like reading an entertainment industry novel but really don't have the time to sit down and read one with better pacing. <<less

It is a really good novel, and I think it deserves higher ratings than it has right now. The synopsis and the title are a bit misleading. When I first started reading, I thought that it would be a comedy. Some scenes were funny, but the novel itself definitely isn't a comedy. I wouldn't say that it was hard to read, but some characters truly have a tragic past.

The novel is well written. It is pretty small—just 55 chapters. But still, it is eventful. There are a few interesting supernatural... more>> stories that involve ghosts and fox spirits. MC is basically a cultivator, but in modern times, which itself is already interesting, it is also related to the entertainment industry, so it is pretty unique. MC solves cases that are supernatural in nature but is also involved in disputes that are typical of novels about the entertainment industry.

From the very beginning, the novel was gripping. The plot is captivating. I thought that the story would be about MC, how he was reborn, and how he began living from scratch, but I was wrong. At the end of the novel, there was a big plot twist, and the novel became even more fascinating. From the beginning of the novel, there were some mysteries, like How Did MC Die? Who was he in the past? What's wrong with ML? But I didn't expect that it would end in this manner. At some point, it seems that it won't end well, so I want to tell you that this is HE, so don't worry.

Both MC and ML are interesting. ML is tsundere, and MC, who is calm, composed, and never reacts to anything, loves to tease him. It was a little bit strange that MC was more attentive to ML for no reason and loved to tease him, but at the end of the story, it became understandable. I think MC is my favorite character.
Spoiler

From the very beginning, he looked like a nice person. He was helping others and had a kind smile, so I never expected that he would have a really dark past. Some may even call him a villain. There is a tag for unreliable narrator, but still, because everyone was praising him and he always acted so gentle, it was a big plot twist. The true story behind the ML curse was also shocking.

[collapse]

I loved this story. I hope more people will give it a chance and enjoy it. It is small but has everything a good story needs: an interesting plot, good characters, and an unexpected plot twist. <<less

Made me wish for more. Like when you have an itch on your back and you try to scratch it, but just can't seem to get it perfectly riiiiiiiight there to feel perfectly satisfied. That. Lol. It's a good and enjoyable story with a few twists and turns. It's honestly more romantic subplot? The tag of "Late Romance" is pretty adequate lol in that you really won't see it despite a few blink and you'll miss it moments. Until we do actually go into romantic love pretty much at the... more>> end lol <<less

I binge read this in what? 2 days? And if you asked me what it was about I couldn't tell you more than the gist of it. I felt like this had amazing potential to be a memorable story for me but because it was only 55 chapters long, it was sort of wasted, not to say it was bad. I rarely read stories with this sort of setting (supernatural, traditional Chinese exorcism stuff (what's it called?)) but I did enjoy it. There was ghosts but it was written in... more>> a way that's not to scary and didn't result in my being scared of the dark like some novels did. Overall the main takeaway is that the cp do love each other, supernatural genre can be fun, this novel should have been way longer and their back story more explored.

All I remember of the backstory:

Spoiler

So Chu Rouchun and Feng Qi are disciples under the same master in the same sect. FQ's family was mu*dered when he was 3 or 5 (I still don't know) because of some terrible emperor. New emperor comes in and years later 18 year old FQ decides he wants revenge. As a result he becomes the grand tutor (?) of this emperor who reveres Daoism and wants to be immortal. Old, shady, less competent 'Taoist', specialised in the dark arts (the bad kind) comes in. He's not even half as good as FQ or CRC, who's somehow EXTREMELY overpowered for some reason (feels like this needed to be explained more instead of only chalking it up to talent.) but he's got a smooth tongue and overflowing ambition that he doesn't match his ability or talent. So emperor likes this bootlicker more because his ego is stroked and starts to suspect FQ because of him. Dodgy 'Taoist' digs up FQ's past of being a survivor of the Feng family massacre after his family hides him in a cellar. He's rescued by his current master because of some debt. Emperor decided to get rid of him and FQ's tortured (?) before being publicly executed and his body fed to dogs (yikes). CRC only hears of this after his senior brother is mu*dered and goes mental. Don't remember much but he mu*ders the ENTIRE imperial capital?? By taking/sucking/stealing etc their souls? (Finish this later, tired)

Rating: 4.0

I was gonna rate it 3.5 but I just love the story and the potential it couldve had if it was flesh out well by the author I had to rate it 4 lol

The story is good as it is but it feels so surface level. I wish the author delve into MC and ML's past deeply so we could experience it directly instead of leaving it in a few sentences/paragraphs.

Also, the main conflict was like only introduced/teased around the middle of the novel (and it was only one... more>> or two sentences) that's why I understand why some of the readers (the comment section) was so surprise by the main plot at almost nearing the end of the novel.

Anyway still love it! Although it is surface level story, it isnt that boring to read. Enjoyed reading it.

Translation by KnoxT is good! The whole thing was understandable. Wish they also re-translated CH1 because it was an incomprehensible MTL but I understand if they dont have time. <<less

would be a 4 star since I like the beginning of the novel however after ch 20 the novel went down and I am greatly disappointed with how the novel ended and how both main lead didn't even have character development. There are also too many plot holes and some parts of the novel didn't make sense to me at all.

would not read again cause it's a waste of time

Generally speaking, I enjoyed the first half of the novel, while the second half of it rushed over my head so fast I don't even remember what I feel while reading it.

The characters while not very deep, were fun characters to follow. The plot has its flaws, but the cases were fun to read.

If there was anything that hindered my enjoyment of this novel, it would perhaps be the execution? Due to the length of the novel, I feel like a lot of things that could've been expanded was just... more>> quickly brought over.
Spoiler

the whole reason of the MC's rebirth was briefly mentioned, their origin story explained in several info dumps, the ML's personality change was perhaps the most confusing thing, since the question of where the ML's old personality become. It's said that it's like a personality in DID, in which it becomes dormant, but it's just a really lousy explanation.

[collapse]
Half of the novel I was just wondering the answers to these questions, and they don't even get a good explanation in the end. I understand that it's due to the novel length, but also at the same time I'm frustrated that the reading experience is affected by these plot holes. It just feels so crammed? The pacing in the second half is very rushed.

The execution of the plot twist was pretty straightforward too. Just kinda got dumped onto you that this happened, that happened, and something is happening right now. I also don't really understand the romantic development between the MC and ML, but I'd say that it's just me not reading between the subtle romantic cues enough.

I did enjoy the first half, and since the second half was rushed, I actually don't think my brain processed it enough to make me think that this novel is bad. That sounds really lame but that's honesty how I view the novel right now. In the specific genre of ghostbusting showbiz novels, this doesn't stand out that much, but I think it's fine to give this one a read. <<less

Honest rate: 4.7

But something hold me back so this stubborn thumb of mine hit ⭐⭐⭐⭐ instead. Geez! 🤣 Anyways, this is not my first time reading stories like this, but the merge between Horror and history surprised me a bit. Since I never thought that their 500 year history would go down to that path. But it made me cry and so now this novel have a soft spot in my ❤️

This is a good read indeed but it needs patience, so read it slowly, don't rush and Just have fun... more>> with it. Good night. <<less
