When A Mage Revolts


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

Kubei was just an ordinary pencil and button pusher working a day job, hating his boss and making horrible speeches when one day he fell asleep after pushing an all-nighter. When he woke up, he was bound to a chair, facing three creepy robed women and in a body way too young and way too weak to be his own. As he slowly came to, he realized that he was no longer in the same universe as he was before. He had teleported to the Kingdom of Helius, where an all-powerful church rules its lands and wages war against the elusive group known only as Mages. Armed with an incredibly cocky neural interface that just won’t shut up and his own sheer wit, our main character will find himself not just fighting to survive, but maybe even something bigger than himself.

I didn't read this for a long time because of reviews about A.I. + my own conceptions. The A.I. the MC has isn't like any modern A.I. in that it isn't connected to anything other than the host, so obviously it won't evolve like a traditional Sci-Fi A.I. - Which is good. Unlike what the other reviews say, the A.I. does NOT actually do all that much, nor make any choices, it's simply a tool with perks and consciousness. I will say though, the A.I. is SO annoying in the... more>> beginning, but becomes much more silent later.

This novel starts off really slow but does pick up. I really enjoyed the atmosphere it created. If you can ignore plot holes (and there are many later in the story), then you'll eventually end up liking this novel. The MC is a little bit of psychopath for a modern day human, but not a serial killer. There is no harem so far which is nice. It's definitely about a mage that causes revolts.

All in all, not the best nor the worst... just around a 4.0 for my taste. Not as good as Warlock of the Magus World imo. <<less

Despite the comedy tag, do not expect to laugh. It's a transmigration story into a crapsack world where every character is dark, outright evil, broken, or simply stupid. The MC takes on the world as the last option, and the AI leaps between plot armor asspulls and useless idiocy that someone thought to be amusing - and it isn't.

After 60 chapters, I haven't found a single sympathetic character, or a plotline that I though was engaging enough to justify wasting more time. Avoid.

This is great comedy. It makes fun of usual tropes in these kind of stories. It also has interesting story and characters, and good action now and then. MC gets a cheat which is almost useless yet funny AI.

It's also not clear-cut "church is bad, mages are good"-situation like in similar stories. Mages actually cause more harm to MC than the church, as they torture him and try to kill him several times. He still wants to become mage, not because he is dumb but because that's only route for... more>> power for him. <<less

Meet Benjamin, a boy who transmigrate from a regular Chinese guy.

from every story you read in a Chinese novels, you would expect a golden hand MC, every single danger come with an equivalent rewards in return + plot armors. But nope, not here. In here, our boy Benjamin (along with his uselessly smart-ass System) experience hell in every single moment, unexpected plot out of nowhere, improvise new ideas right on the spot, nothing ever go the way he expected, but in the end he still win along with his... more>> companion.

Overall this story is very enjoyable.

the best line of the story:

I find this novel to be fairly enjoyable. The AI is kinda annoying instead of funny, maybe the comedic factor is lost in translation. I really liked the main character for a while but he's starting to become more and more like every other psychopathic character that you see in most Chinese cultivation novels. In the beginning the MC had justifiable reasons to kill certain people but later on his reasons became flimsier and flimsier. How long until he kills someone just because they were in "his" seat at a... more>> bar? Yeah, I know, it won't get that bad because he's the MC instead of a fodder villain, but still... <<less

TL;DR. Either you love it or hate it novel. I just write a review because it compelled me to drop it after 10 chapters. In a sense, this is quite amazing.

This is the first novel that I dropped after reading 10 chapters of it so it's worth to be reviewed as I usually give it like at least 50-100 chapters before dropping something (the usual introductory phase). I know it's unjust but this is somehow so amazing that I just want to review it for my collection. From the statistic... more>> of the reviews, there are a lot of 1 stars and 5 stars which means this is either 'you love it or you hate it' novel. For me, the author managed to write something that compelled me so much to drop this, in a sense that's amazing. Some of the reasons why.

First, you can find the author as a character in this novel, the author is casting as the AI. I concluded this because the AI is too human like using try-too-hard annoying joke just to piss the MC off and break the story flow so it'd not end up so serious. Not to mention, the AI is mostly useless for the sake being a comedy element. Second, the author tried too hard to make a dark joke. The author wrote a huge chapter for backstory of a character to force it as a joke. That's really a lot of work for a forced joke. Third, the flow and the narration managed to bored me. I found it like reading a dull history book. These 3 are the major reasons why I dropped it. Then again like I said, it's either you love it or you hate it so it's just doesn't work for me <<less

This one's enjoyable for a lot of reasons, but a large part of it is that it's 300 chapters long by now and still hasn't descended into pure wish fulfillment. The MC has advantages without being OP, the plot seems to be advancing in a more or less rational direction, and there's no out-of-nowhere harem. Certainly worth reading!

Woah. That was such a ride. While I could nitpick here and there, I think the author still did a great job executing the story. I just didn’t like the ending that much.. It left me hanging. There’s no romance, which was completely okay. I wouldn’t wanna force a romance here tbh. Many lives has been lost, people died, suffered etc etc. The conclusion was satisfactory and I commend the author on that. Thank you for bringing in such a wonderful novel.

The MC accidentally slept on his Windows 10 laptop and woke up being transmigrated into another world. Unfortunately for MC, Windows 10 main feature, the personal assistant Cortana, has been embedded into his brain.

This novel revolves around how Cortana screws the MC over and over again as the MC desperately trying to live while going against a psychopath witch and a church that like to 'cleanse' people while being the troubled heir of an aristocratic family.

The story itself is just bang average, but combined with comedic MC's interactions with Cortana,... more>> this novel makes for a decent read.

This novel is a recommended read for any die-hard fans of Windows 10, Windows Phone, Xbox console or the Halo video game series. Especially the latter. Android or ChromeOS users should instead read the 'Help! Gooogle-sensei!!' novel, which being a JP novel, is way inferior to this novel.

For iOS/MacOS users, they should read Martial God Asura for an educational 'triggering' experience.

🌟🌟🌟🌟from me as of chapter 54. <<less

Since this story is new I won't give it 5 stars but the story so far has been really good. It is not a run of the mill story about the MC being OP right off the bat with some magical power. The system or (neural interface) is not much help to him so he is not very OP. The situations remind me a lot of "Release that Witch" but in this instance he can actually learn magic.

I don't know why people are giving this a bad rating. I guess... more>> they expect him to get every he needs right off the bat; It's not going to be like that. This is a harsh and real reality in this story. <<less

This is a mash up of the start of coiling dragon and warlock of the magus world that is more of a satire on why bad things keep happening to him and why he is unlucky. Rather than being hardworking and Having purpose, control and power. It's more a more lighthearted 'how am I going to get myself out of this one' gag. The A.I. Tries to act as the comic relief but I find joke overplayed and will predict that the joke saying - press 0 for a human... more>> will get repeated alot during the novel. If you can stomach the flippant use of crude words to get a laugh then you might enjoy the rest.

As for how this series will turn out, It will be up to the execution of the premise and the story. I'll assume if you have read the two aforementioned novels then you won't be missing out on much if you don't read this as its a parody. But it's early days and we will see if more tags are updated that are interesting enough. <<less

This title is really misleading, I doubt he has the balls to revolt against anything.

I'm so close to dropping this already and that's rare, he's just such a god damn wanker, seriously, grow a pair!


It gets better later on, at first the MC seems clueless while just going along with everything happening around him, he does try to fight back and I guess you can call it character development, since he does go from just being toyed with to toying with others, while still not being perfect, this is in... more>> fact a thing I really like.

There are however still things I'm not satisfied with, there are a lot of times where the MC is in a situation or has thoughts he can't solve where I'll think "Isn't it just like this? It seems simple", I'm not claiming to be some highly intellectual person, so I think most readers will have a similar experience, it feels like the author is purposely dumbing down the MC unnecessarily which gets really infuriating. Aside from this the novel is really predictable, if you've read similar novels before you'll quickly catch on and predict the outcome, even the things that aren't resolved yet seem way too predictable, it could turn out later that I'm wrong, but I doubt it. There are truly unpredictable twists, but that's only when the author gives no hints at all, when he does however they are too revealing, feeling dumbed down once again.

The author keeps piling up more and more questions by introducing all manner of mysterious side characters which also begins feeling unnecessary, this together with the dumbing down of certain things mentioned earlier makes it feel like the author is looking down on his readers while trying to build up to some grand reveal at the end by trying to make it mysterious and complex, but it just feels forced and I feel like it takes the place of other important things like seeing the development of the relationship between the MC and his companions, world building in general and of course there's no romance at all, MC is totally asexual. There is potential with one girl, seems far into the future though.

The start of the novel forces the MC to focus on other things than learning about the world he's now in, he does study later, but the content is not revealed to the reader and is just stored in the AI, there are magical beasts in this world, magic potions, magical items, mysterious areas and other things, but mercenary related jobs and potion making is just delegated, leaving all these wonders unexplained.

When talking about the AI, this guy really grows on you and it's nice, I would however like it to be more than just a data bank and a GPS, it must have some processing power, being able to research different things, like all the things the MC doesn't understand that I mentioned earlier.

Lastly we have all the bad events the MC experiences, simply put, if anything can go wrong it will, nothing is ever easy, this is really refreshing in the beginning and the MC does manage to struggle through and grow, but I guess it's actually normal in Chinese novels, it makes everyone but the MC and his companions seem like bad people, there's no belief in humanity and it's just too extreme, leaving a bad taste in your mouth. There is once, but it's only for a couple of chapters. <<less

I'd really like to give it more chances but for now it's on my waiting list.. (While I don't really like making reviews based on just 10 chapters so this is only temporary until I get the urge to pick it up again)

The system the MC received to explain it shortly in it's early chapter it's basically too low-grade and annoying, as of ch10 the only use I can see for it is recording sounds & trash talking conversation partner. The system is so annoying that it does not... more>> even give any good thing or advice it's just simply ridiculous. At the beginning the MC is always getting beat up almost died yet it's still up to the MC to think of everything no thanks to the system, and IMO the system is not a good conversation partner.

For me reading chapters 1-9 was already painful but at end of chapter 10 the attitude of the MC really annoyed me that I lost my patience so for now I'd give it a 2/5 if I get in the mood again to try reading I'll update my review. <<less

I think this is an intressting read. I read from chapter 1 to 20. The writer of this novel also uses "A.I" chip in the head like in the other novels of same concept. Except the writer wants his to be diffrent so he gave, the Artificiall intelligence chip that is imbedded in our main character, a personality. This is what makes me all plerplexed/flustered/unsettled... Because this personality of an A.I is funny and a pain in the ass at the same time.

If you are a traditionalist like me then... more>> you want the A.I to be helpful. In movies and other books, A.I software often do not have personalities. They calculate, and formulate awnsers with reason and within obtainable boundaries of knowledge and common sense.

This A.I here is supposed to be a fused one of a 5 year old laptop with a mobile phone and it has a personality. And so this personality is actually an annoying dumb software with retorts and banter. Which is funny at first. But it soon gets too much, really it gets too much... The banter, which many calls humour and comedy gets too much.

Anyway enough of the A.I maybe things will improve in the long run. It is an intressting read but... who knows. Maybe it will get better. Or... Worse? <<less

The story tries to be original with a lot of comedy mixed. Thanks to that I can't tell if the dumb one is our MC, his "cheat" system, or perhaps both. Not a bad read so far but needs more chapters to judge it as the translated content feels more like a prologue.

A ton of the humor doesn't land.

The system is more annoying than funny, like having a poor system can be funny, but it needs to be aided by a MC that wouldn't otherwise need a system.

I get that this is a parody, but it's too weak. Tons of characters that aren't relatable. Too much humor for convenience.

Like not being able to absorb memories on transmigration is okay, having the system brief you is okay, but having the system forget to tell you important information to make you the joke is... more>> just dumb, not funny. Like maybe make the system just joke all the time, or read sizes, or do other stupid stuff, but at least let the MC operate on something other than luck to progress through the plot.

MC even attempting magic is dumb. He should just stay home.

People rating this five stars probably like fart jokes.. <<less

I don't have the conscience to say that this is the best fantasy story, but it's close. I would even dare say that it's better than Warlock of the Magus World. Still, it's a 4 due to the flaws in the MC's personality. His character is inconsistent, sometimes very smart, sometimes extremely stupid that if not for his system (which is the buggiest yet funniest, if given a chance to wish, I'd rather have the system as the MC because it's just too unique and humorous), he would have died... more>> ten billion times already. Anyways, that's all the fault I disliked about WAMR. The rest, world building and everything are just great. Of course, some may say the lack of romance is a flaw, but actually, because there's no bullsh*t and excessive romance in here that I managed to persist reading this, unlike Release that Witch which somehow became intolerable for me. <<less

Actually I was wrong about this novel, I wrote the first comment on the premise it was character growth, but it was actually character descend, him getting ruined by his own sins.

I thought to add a tragedy tag to the novel but that would only reduce the number of readers, and it's not really tragic.

I also never noticed dungeon defense was the opposite of dungeon attack, the game he's playing
