The Record of Unusual Creatures


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

Hao Ren (literally means “good man”), as his Chinese name suggested, is a good man, and his ideal was to live a restful, comfortable life as a landlord. At least that was his plan before a couple of abnormal creatures rented his house.

A remote, outdated big apartment, a bunch of rather abnormal non-human creatures, and a labor contract from the “god”, the three factors combined lead him to be the busiest landlord and most supernatural “babysitter”. The story of the most complicated, erratic and abnormal landlord and tenants started from here.

“Ever since I put my fingerprint on the labor contract,, I knew I was roped into something terrible……”

As a person who is down-to-earth as well as a good Samaritan, Hao Ren desires to live the rest of his life as a benevolent landlord. Stumbling into a curious yet mysterious lady, he began his journey of “collecting” abnormal and supernatural tenants.
His life only became more chaotic when he receives a labor contract from “God”. Discover the many races, myths and worlds that lie beyond what humans define as normal! This bizzare fantasy full of fun is sure to bring you on a crazy rollercoaster of emotions!

Looking at all the negative reviews for this novel makes me really sad that no one actually knows about this novel and the author's previous. I will give some things to expect from this novel.

Tags currently missing: Transporting between different world[B]S[/B], Aliens, Interstellar travel (Yes, you will travel to space in another world), Mass destruction weapon, Detective, Mystery, Demon, Mermaid, Apocalypse, Star war, Science fiction.

The pacing for this author is kinda slow at first but as things start to progress, what we will encounter increases in scale (from person, different... more>> race to different civilization to interstellar civilization and interworld civilization). A single event in this novel can lead to many hints and questions to the mysteries surrounding the world.

The Hilling Empire mentioned is also a title of the author's previous work. It is about the revival of the empire that rules across galaxies and worlds. The MC is an emperor of that empire and his slice of life involves saving the worlds from destruction in many scales. This is also a different type of fanfiction as it also involves some worlds that we know (World of Warcraft, StarCraft, To Aru Majutsu no Index, Fate Stay Night and many different anime worlds)

Oh god I couldnt stand how boring it was.

1st chapter: MC sits around in a park doing nothing.

2nd chapter: a potential tenant finds the MC and rides a bus with the MC and is apparently retarded.

... more>> ...

I heard a lot of very good things about this novel and it has a very high rating on Chinese websites so most Chinese readers probably agree that it's well written, interesting etc.

I personally thought it was too boring and couldn't stand it. I'll put it on my "to read" list and read it once I get bored enough one day maybe. <<less

I really don't mind how the novel is written and all its plothole. What I only mind about is how enjoyable the novel is when reading and this one fits it. People have different taste so yeah, some may not or may like this novel. Though the translator might need an editor/proofreader.

Overall, fantastic read.

The slice-of-life tag is strong in this novel. Even if there's action, I feel that it's overshadowed.

Characters are funny, but not too interesting. MC's weak, but powering up gradually. He's not a wimp, but I feel that his intelligence has been lowered on purpose for comedy. Maybe other characters too...

The comedy is probably the most important part of the novel so far. Almost every chapter has to have something funny in it. If you don't like the type of comedy in the novel, it's probably not worth reading for you.

Finally,... more>> I'm just glad that this didn't become a harem novel. I think that the author posted a note mentioning that romance would be late and the novel wouldn't be a harem novel with a bunch of supernatural lolis and stuff like that. Bless the author.

I didn't give it 5 stars (yet?) because it's just starting out and hasn't truly attracted my attention yet. Has potential, but I'm waiting for it to hopefully become really entertaining. <<less

Ha the story is developing nicely and the light novel is different from the ones I usually read #noRebirth #noTeleportingToAnotherWorld #IhopeThereWontBeAnyHarem and the MC is normal guy, who lives a very mundane life. And the rest you READ hha It seems there is a comedy tag, but the story is not that.... Well, it is quite light-hearted novel, I'm also anticipating how this'll end, although its only starting. Hmm I smell Tragic end from this light novel, I hope not

Better yet keep reading L (*.*) ~

I'll rate it 5, but as of now, this novel is lacking background characters, which makes it less entertaining. There's no one to comment or retort. There's only four people speaking to each other in one big world.

It is an amazing novel with a boring beginning. The story is far more than slice-to-life. It portrays many different fantastic worlds, races and myths. The novel reveals this grand framework by discovering an ancient mystery which concerns the fate of two universes entangled.

When I browsed through this page and then the first chapter, it is as expected of a slice-of-life novel- a truly boring read wherein the first chapter wasn't enough to hook me in. If it were to hook people into reading up to the last chapter, a prologue would be necessary in order add more interesting dimension and dialogue to give the story some meat to chew on. If it is a book that is just as boring as people-watching, I wouldn't recommend you read it given the slice-of-life tag.
