Disgustingly overrated novels.

Disgustingly overrated novels.
This is my list of the novels that left a particularly bad aftertaste after finishing them. That is if I was able to finish them, some WNs here are so awful I've got no choice but to stop reading them. Or you can call it as my personal hate list. The reason for its creation is me being bored out of my mind, and to release some of my frustration. Obviously, this list contains my personal, unparalleled holy opinion, which can't be challenged by anyone. My word is the law and I am always right!

It's a trap, guys! Just look at this title, cover, tags and description! No way in hell would you expect a ret*rded pushover as a protagonist here, right? But it is exactly what awaits unsuspecting readers. MC always acts like a typical virg*n Japanese hero.... more>>

While reading this one I've felt nothing but annoyance. Typical example of an unskilled/foolish author trying to portray a clever protagonist but failing miserably. MC got an ability to edit his own profile/status panel, but the things he does with it will make even a rural shaman on drugs to gasp in wonder. Another torturous thing here is the romance. The said romance is the reason why our poor shaman started to use drugs in the first place. You just can't read this in a normal state of mind and remain sane.... more>>

You can divide this novel into two parts. A good, readable one, and greedy author's continuous attempt to milk it somehow. If the first part is a decent kingdom building story, the second one could only be described as the author's chuunibyou syndrome coupled with incomprehensible delusions at work.... more>>

Another example of the misleading title/description. Even at the start of the story our MC sets an aim for himself to become stronger than original protagonist, so he wouldn't be sacrificed or pushed around by anyone. But unbeknownst to us, some mysterious sh*t started to happen. Maybe the author is a female or just a latent homosexual, but with the author's help our MC transformed into a devoted fanboy, who is wholeheartedly supporting the original protagonist and spouting some cringy lines from time to time for his sake. The amount of yaoi novels is already shocking, and this one here is like an undercover secret agent of this satanic genre.... more>>

Another novel with a good start but a detestable ending. Just remembering it now makes me shudder from disgust. This novel is also the reason why I've avoided anything else with the so-called 'infinity' template in it like plague. MC here is not so simple. It's hard to understand if he is somewhat clever, just normal or an autist. He can do something clever once in a while and then continue being a vegetable. And this once in a while thingy gives you hope that maybe story will be better in the not so distant future, but no. Author has obviously bitten more than he can chew. The futher into the story you go, the... more>>

This one is a very, very strange story. It could be a good comedy but all the jokes in the novel became repetitive. MC is supposed to be an emotional eunuch but for reasons unknown he is often trying to push some pervy pranks. It is very contradicting, to say the least. But this is not the reason why I am calling this novel strange. Also it is supposed to be a comedy, author is persistently forcing some weird and obscure bullsh*t into the story. This drivel sounds really mysterious and tragic, but it is completely unnecessary here. The only thing this incomprehensible nonsense achieved is ruining the novel's atmosphere.... more>>

Another illogical novel. The author is trying to push his own pe*verted vision of how a successful author is supposed to be like. 'I've reincarnated into a printing machine' will be a much better fit for this garbage's title. The whole thing is so one-dimensional it leaves me speechless. As for MC, he is so damn apathetic you can call him a living printer, or a brick, if you exclude his ability to write. The worst part of this rubbish is the novel's ending. It feels like author randomly pulled it out of his arse.... more>>

Mature version of the pokemon series. And that's the only positive thing about this novel. The author basically shot himself in the leg with his s*upid setting where normal pokemons can't evolve. With this one simple move author created the world where MC is the only entity with brain. The battles in this novel are nothing but farce. They look like that:... more>>

A dull story with absolutely useless MC. The only thing he is capable of doing is using his cheat. Nothing remarkable here.... more>>

Another apathetic piece of brick as a protagonist. Though as far as I remember the plot was quite decent, but MC's personality ruined the whole story. If I am not mistaken the only motivation MC has is that he doesn't want to die? He has no other wishes or desires. Dull and pathetic. Especially for an action genre.... more>>

Started good but ended horribly. Nothing too shocking or revolting here, just a completely unorganized ending. Feels like the author lost interest in writing it or was completely out of ideas.... more>>

I'm not really sure if I should add this one here or not, but I think it wouldn't be a mistake either. You can call it a result of unlucky coincidences. It will be okay to read it as your first xianxia novel, but unfortunately for me, it was my tenth or so. I've decided to give it a try after reading ISSTH and AWE, and it was bleak and boring in comparison. Well, as it was written in 2009, you can see nothing but cliche and standard repetitive plot in it now, with awfully written romance like a cherry on top. MC is supposed to be cold, cool and ruthless, but he actually adds... more>>

    For some, I will have to agree to disagree. Most specifically the first one, the rest I pretty much agree with you.
