Such realism in a fantasy world. Unlike those sunny-side up in JP isekai novels.

You know Warlock of the Magus World? This is it predecessor as it was written by the same author.

But unlike that this one is a hidden gem. Full of mystery, strange, tragedy, competition, complication, complex strings to this plot.

... more>> Magic is undeniably a bigger picture here like those in Harry Potter but it is stronger and much more active.

The world is harsh especially in the wizard side. Where nobody trust each other in the name of power and pride. Wizards are selfish but trade each other in conforming towards research and inheritance.

MC is calculated, cold, smart, tactician, brilliant, real man and strong.

In that world he'll rise to the top to uncover mysteries, baffling questions, confronting dire situation and face overwhelming odds.

This is a story that it is good as it gets. <<less

I saw people saying this book is identical to Warlock of the Magus World so I did some research. This book was actually started back in 2012 and finished by the end of 2013. Warlock of the Magus World did not start until 2015, so technically this one is not using the settings from WMW. I am not saying one copied the other, and I think they are both fun to read.

I like that the MC is not really OP, and he trained a lot with the help of... more>> the chip. He is hacking, but not like some other MCs that are born with super power or something. I doubt how long he would stay weak tho.

Update after ch23: I enjoyed it a lot actually. I think the MC reached he's limit here, and he is going to some new world. I really want to know when he is going to become a Wizard though...

Update 2: Finally... something about the Wizards. The pace of the plot was slow but steady. Enjoyed every chapter.

Update 3:

I expected the MC to become much stronger after entering the wizard school, but it did not happen. MC really did not have that much privilege

than others, he learns things faster and that's about it. Very happy with recent release speed, and the translation quality did not drop. <<less

yada yada yada WMW. It seems this novel came out first though, so I guess WMW copied this? I'm current at chapter 64 and this is waaaaay too similar to be a coincidence.

... more>>
Spoiler

MC comes from a place that has no wizards and eventually heads off across the sea to where the wizards live/train. On the way he meets someone he gets along with but they go to diff academies, yet they still keep in contact (sorta). He ends up at a 'evil' academy that has gone down in the world, and is soon about to be involved in a losing war. He starts having s*x with a bad talented sorceress so she doesn't get sent back and he gets resources from her family in return. Oh, and he is doing pharmacy for money. Now he is essentially running away to live among mortals so he won't become involved in the war, and if WMW really copied this novel then I'm guessing the next thing to happen is that he will discover a sorcerer's vestige or something.

[collapse]

If anyone has read WMW then u can see they are identical from my description. If there is any difference, then it is that this is faster paced. I'm giving this a 4 instead of a 3 or 2 because if this did come out first then it shouldn't be affected by me reading warlock of the magus world first. <<less

Early chapters where good until the part where he becomes an official wizard. From that part, the story becomes dark and the MC getting more and more unfeeling. Another thing is that IMO this is not a harem nor a romance novel, so if you're picking this up for those reasons like I am, then you'll be disappointed. Better replace the romance with TRAGEDY tag because a lot of those females that had relationship with him end up dead or left hanging. The story becomes more and more ridiculous at the later part such as the MC ate elves alive to test their bloodline, the MC was sent back to a modern world, Starship Armada annihilated by the MC, and a lot more. There are also a lot of useless text such as describing side characters exaggeratedly which will be forgotten on the next chapters. Another thing is that most of the characters are meant to be forgotten except for that female lord of the nightmare world which becomes his companion at the ending.

So the story is almost 90% identical to Warlock of the Magus World in the beginning, the MC does even get the same bonus in his new life...a AI chip, he also eats stuff to higher his stats, the main difference is that he is living in his father´s castle and not on his way to a magic school, beside all that I do enjoy the novel until now and hope to see what else he will do different.

Good so far.

Small issues tho, his past life doesn't seem to matter. It seems they only used that narrative to bring in the AI chip. Also when the baron (his father) whipped to death the two guards that were with him, he felt his father's love?

The MC told those guards to leave him and then they get whipped to death for it and he's just like "eh father loves me so" that's medieval thinking, but the MC is a soul for the modern era... so wtf? Like I said... more>> his past life doesn't seem to matter at all, and his thinking is reminiscent of people living in that world. Overall the story is good, but some annoying things remain, hope they address it or it's probably a drop for me. <<less

This being released before WMW makes it deserve an extra star! Also the insane plagiarism pisses me off at WMW!!! Literally insane! (I'm at ch.107)

Also, although WMW was more polished due to (obviously) just refining this book, it is too typically cliche with the OP MC and plot armor. There's nothing wrong with that but reading this makes me feel like the book is better with the MC not winning simply due to quick fixes/immediate upgrades/AI. Etc cuz of Plot Armor! :)

In my opinion, having an MC with... more>> an OP AI (wmw) led that story to be more shallow. Whereas here, the MC is not perfect but the overall story is better. <<less

Unrated, but just so for you to know:

The first 10 chapters are eeriely very similar to "warlock of the magus world".

since only 10 chapters are released, i'll withold writing more, but its good to know that the first 10 chapters are very similar to another novel.

... more>> But the differences end very quickly.

What I like about the entire thing is that the MC isn't exactly OP, but learns how to compensate certain deficiencies with assistance. It isn't shown if the MC is over-reliant on the chip, but the chip is already established not to be AI, and can only compute if sufficient data is keyed in (meaning no out of the box out of ordinary "i already calculated this" moments for MC).

Because I read Warlock of The Magus World before this and because they are similar (very much), I'll mostly be comparing the two.

Pros:

  1. The MC doesn't rely on the chip as much as the one in WMW.
  2. The MC is more humane (if you like that)
  3. Upto this point (Chapter 103 for me), there is far less bloodshed than in WMW.
  4. The MC is quite careful when needed.
Cons:

  1. The chip is far less powerful than the A.I. Chip from WMW.
  2. The MC is more humane (I don't like that)
  3. There is less bloodshed than in WMW. (Yup, this too)
  4. The MC is stupider than the MC of WMW.

The MC is a closet lolicon in denial at the beginning. the tags by the translator suggests he will eventually become a full lolicon.

There is a very long (50-something chapters) prologue where the MC is faffing about with the family of the dude whose corpse he body snatched before even starting to learn magic.

The MC seems to be your typical japanese highschooler isekai in terms of waifu, emotions, and morality early on. I don't know if it changes later on though. He also builds himself a fake harem, where he... more>> actually goes so far as faking s*x with them when they ask to have s*x with him. He is faking it so that they and their family can get benefits from his super evil but doting father without him actually laying a hand on them (why not? they are literally in love with him and asked for s*x! its not like the girls who were kidnapped by his father for his harem are the ones asking for s*x, not touching those is understandable but those don't even ask).

Also, the MC sees how much the father of the corpse he bodysnatched loves him. And immediately starts loving him unconditionally as well. Despite the fact that he is horrendously evil and everyone hates him and for good reasons for all of them.

Also, the author writes a lot of combat scenes and he is really really bad at them. They are often quite moronic and make no goddamn sense. For example, the MC is shooting arrows at some enemies killing one of them per shot with his cheat aimbot, then bam, he is hit by a crossbow bolt! surprise, he didn't notice that half the cavalry he is shooting at stopped their horses, drew out crossbows from their ass, knocked them, and shot back at him because... reasons? it's secretly a turn based game?

Or he is fighting an enemy who is much much slower than him in melee. suddenly the enemy jumps backwards to put in distance between them, reaches into his satchel, draws and throws 3 knives, this entire thing was done "quicker than the MC could react". what the f**k is this bullsh*t? MC has twice his agi and earlier we have seen that the result of having 2x the agility means he moves faster than the enemy can see! yet suddenly its the enemy's turn so he does all those immersion breaking actions.

I am dead serious when I say that I think the author played out the battles in DnD until he got what he wanted.

Frankly the godawful and completely random and senseless combat is likely going to be what makes me drop this series.

If you want something similarish to WMW try "Age of Adepts", "Throne of Magical Arcana", or "A Sorcerer's Journey". Those are better than The Wizard World. Although neither is anywhere close to warlock of the magus world.

A sorcerer's journey is quite interesting because it is basically WMW but the MC has no cheat (so far. every sorcerer of average+ talent should have an innate ability that gets awoken by the testing, but he doesn't understand what his is yet; but based on what I have seen so far I do not believe it will be a cheat) nor is he a body snatcher from earth (he was born and raised in that world as a dirt poor peasant).

Throne of the arcana is actually kinda annoying. MC dies on earth and bodysnatches a boy in a world of sorcery. with a hypocritical magical church that suppresses sorcerers (any mages who are not of the church). The cheat there is pretty annoying and totally unexplainable. he just has a library in his brain for no reason.

As for age of adepts, it is the closest to WMW. MC is just a little less smart and ruthless than leylin. there are also waifu. But its unclear so far what will happen and how it will be treated. And his AI cheap is inferior to leylin's

edit: I picked it up again and this time I went up to c74 before losing steam. there was more intrigue and less fighting so it was bearable. MC still a moron and the few battles were still bad, but slightly less bad as of late; MC also is slightly less of a japanese MC now. for example a girl with hopelessly low talent recruited him to her mage family. he gets 2 wives with low talent from her family (her and her niece) and a bunch of resources for cultivation, she gets a bonus for recruited talented new blood as well as being allowed to continue attending the academy despite her failure to progress thus far. He actually started sleeping with her (but refused to even meet her niece for "reasons").

eventually I ran out of ch to read and by the time more were translated I just didn't feel like it again. <<less

So far, it looks like Warlock of the Magus World is a complete copycat. I suggest everyone saying that Wizard World copied WMW to check the DATES of both novels.

What brings this down is the translation. It's just not good enough to portray the true feelings of the author. Lot of stuff reads like a children's book unfortunately.

If you like similar stories like WMW then it wouldn't hurt giving this a chance.

It's good so far, much less reliance on the chip than WMW and the MC is definitely shown as being more humane that Leylin (at the very least, he gets sick the first time he kills someone). The story is different enough from WMW so far for it to be enjoyable, don't be turned off because it has an ai chip+magic world. Perhaps my biggest fear going forward is that cultivation will be a little too easy - even though the MC started off much weaker than a normal teenager,... more>> after like 2 months he's stronger than 2 adult males (secretly the 3rd strongest person in his territory).

Lastly, I don't know why, but I feel like this will not be a nation-founding novel even though the beginning has all the signs of one (like oppressed people, sh*tty society that the MC doesn't agree with, and the power to seemingly be able to change it). I just get the feeling like something will happen, and all the characters shown thus far will be forgotten while the MC goes out adventuring.. <<less

This is definitely one of the novels that has decent translation quality on Qi. However, I can see why WMW is better even if it copied this book. Author of WMW probably spent some time improving the plot logic and general designs, but this book was finished way before WMW started, and some of the general errors were understandable.

Problem is the update schedule... I read about the editor's personal issue, but only one chapter per week is torturing me. I enjoyed the read and I really want to see what... more>> happens next.

Also, I doubt how strong the MC will become with the power of wizard. He's so weak that he can't really do anything... <<less

I really don't get how people claim that this starts like WMW as the two diverge immediately after the start. Sure they may share similarities and functions regarding the AI, but the main characters have completely different personalities. One tries to assist those that ask for his help while the other coldly looks out for number one.

And just that difference changes up the storytelling. Basically speaking, one of the stories reads more like an Isekai light novel (TWW) while the other reads like a Wuxia (WMW).

A few problems cripple what should be a great story.

It seems that the majority of problems come from lack of story planning.

There are odd time skips, details and story told in reverse order, almost as an afterthought. Some loose ends (Can still be addressed in future chapters), and a few inconsistencies. Example: ... more>>
Spoiler

MC new to world, adapts way to quickly, complains/notices that people use a washbin to cleans themselves.... but 20 chapters later, he has a shower just to write a shallow "boasting" scene where a girl without personality throws herself at him.

[collapse]

I love the overall style, and the plot progression. At least that much is really well done, and planned. Its the stuffing that is problematic. I will keep reading this story, and hope that the first 50 chapters "Becoming a Wizard" arc were sudo rushed by the author to get to the better story. (But, I have my doubts as he is now joining a school, and the plot will be a rehash of practically ever Xianxia out there)

Regardless, I think that these 50 chapters would have been much better extending out to 100. <<less

Seems like this novel ended too early according to the other reviews. This novel is like warlock magus world. But diffrent, worse. (not saying which one came out first in my comments)

The novel is named The wizard world. 25 chapters in and theres been lots of action. Thats nice but nothing of it had to do with The wizard world title so far....

This is an overrated novel. it is a good star 3 nothing more.

I continued to read to 40 and 1 magical event happened but... more>> nothing more... However on chapter 40 a little more magical things happened... but just something small introduction... And what happened to Cecilia? Well apparently she just disappeared into the smoke and air along the way. This novel is seriously overrated... <<less

Similarities to WMW:

  1. AI chip
  2. Rational MC
  3. Heavily Goal Driven MC
Differences to WMW:

  1. MC doesn't kill as much
  2. MC is very very veeeery forgiving (you will be surprised on later chapters)
  3. MC will only show the minimum amount of power or cards that he has in a battle (just enough to win)
The Wizard World is one of the best written novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. The exposition is on point and seldom will the author include details that won't be used later on as the story progresses. The writing depicts a... more>> vibrant yet despotic feel of the world the MC belongs to. Another unique aspect to the story is the fact that not every guy who offends him or ones that even try to murder him are locked in a "villain" status the whole novel and the same can be said with "allies" as well. The only reason I gave it a score of 3 stars is because the ending is so abrupt and hurried that it makes you feel the author got fired or bored of the story and decided to just end it. So many things were left hanging and questions unanswered. If you've read Dungeon Hunter and thought it ended too fast and badly, then this novel will definitely give you and even worse feeling. <<less

The MC often lists reasons for not doing things, has an over supportive family without doing anything, uses cheat bio chip (WMW) quite liberally to solve all his problems rather than actually making any decisions, scenarios get thrust upon the character in a desperate attempt to follow the WMW storyline. It basically takes all the parts I like from WMW and throws them out while instead of going to the academy, goes back to his daddy... hopefully he shows a bit more initiative with his decision making.

Ed: it does get... more>> better XD <<less

I think this story is really interesting even if it is like WMW (which was released later).

Ich would say it's somehow like WMW but the MC walks the wizard (not really warlock but he playes with his bloodline) way an not 100% warlock way as in WMW.

The story is a little brutal through the story so far and the MC is no idiot and does everything to advance.

What I sometimes not really like is that this story and WMW are at some part exacly the same (Both MC do create... more>> potions have AI Chip, Play with their bloodline, Both need some potions to advance...). In the end you could say its WMW just faster and MC POV as Wizard. <<less

Pro:

    • Not a bad main character.
    • The world is BIG, and there is a sense of mystery of what's going on, you really feel what the life of being in a world where information is slow to go around.
    • You feel like the world is older than it seems.
    • Fairly well written, not many bullsh*t enemies actually (you know, the "you're courting death!!!" types).
Con:

    • MC is a tad too bloodthirsty in his revenges, especially in later parts of the story.
    • There seems to be an overall sense of loneliness, due to many characters being way too far to interact with. Mildly depressing I guess. I hope it'll change though.
    • No real usage of modern knowledge, like many other works in the same theme.
    • The chip RPG like feature is ridiculous, it could have been done in a more organic way.
    • No romance (just personal preference here, but this feels kinda dry). And minimal friendship overshadowed by a giant give and take mentality.

It is a mildly interesting novel. The word building was good in the beginning. I actually read Warlock of the Magus World first, but it was boring, and the interesting things in it (The Magic system, the Knight system, the wizard academies, and the AI chip) are all directly copied from this novel!

... more>>
Spoiler

Good Things
*The MC is a 'realist', doesn't charge in battles like a retard to randomly fight a higher level enemy, so its a change.
*Magi system is interesting.
*World building is mildly interesting.

Not So Good
*AI Chip cheat is random, it is seemingly able to do random things, and author keeps adding new capabilities.

*MC is reincarnated, but that doesn't get into play here, at all.

Bad things
* The story is bland, with nothing real that drives the MC forward, except that he wants to be a wizard.

[collapse]

Verdict
A generally Bland story with a few interesting things, the translation is still in the initial stages so far, hope the interesting things continue.

Recommendation
Read Immortal Mortal and Death Sutra instead. These two novels are MUCH better, especially Death Sutra. <<less
