The New Journey of an Old Soul

by Vihyungrang

Original COMPLETED Action Drama Fantasy Romance Female Lead Gender Bender Reincarnation Strong Lead
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Sexual Content

The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again? Warning: 18+ due to violence, language and sexual content Note: The story is complete. A/N: Since people seem to be skittish with the gender bender tag, I should probably mention that it does not play a particularily important part in the story. More in the beginning, less as the story goes on.

I adored this novel. Like really really loved it. Had a clear path the story followed, showing that the author actually did plan the story and had a,azing characters. Had my doubts about how the relashionships the MC had but most of them were done excellently. But one problem I had was how there was no female characters she met abeit one or two that was interested in males and felt like Yuri should be a tag here since it felt forced on most characters i dont mean the characters them selves but radther the theme or tag (Yuri) itself was forced on the story. Anyway thats the only thing that annoyed me otherwise plot, characters, readability and content were both enjoyable and excellent. Thank you author for letting me read such a great story i'll be reading your second novel and holding off on your latest novel till it has more chapters to it :)

Very good but not for me

for my taste, the mc ist very controlled, between the destinies that direct the ropes between the shadows so that it goes on its way and that everything that will happen with respect to the future, everyone knows it, except the mc, also the question of killing his sister just to have a garbage of RAGEMOMENT that is instantly controlled by the celestials

The novel is very good, I stopped reading because I saw the plot forced in those moments. I stayed in chapter 31 in the future, I will read it again, but now I need a little rest.

So much untapped potential.

So she did something because "x" or "y" , granted it couldn't have been "a" because then mister supposedly important character that won't have any  screen time after this chapter would have thought "b" and the counsecuences would have been catastrophic. Yet nos as bad as if she had done "c", in which case blah blab blah ad infinitum.

Style ruins it all, it makes the narration very difficult to digest. Why not SHOWING us how the characters lived the moment instead?

Also, interactions between MC and big shots felt super artificial, even more when she was a kid and nobody said anything about her talking one on one to prominent people. I mean, nothing aside from the incidental "oh MC you are very intelligent"...

Another big, no, no, is that aside from MC, no other character evolves through the story, not to talk about those supposedly important characters that got forgotten as soon as the chapter ends.

About conflict and tension building, at first you fall for it, thinking "oh, this is great, I want to see how they will get out of this mess" but eventually you realize that whatever is trown at deus ex machina (AKA MC) is gonna get solved in a very anticlimactic jiffy. I mean, I like OP MCs and happy endings, but deus ex machina are a bit too OP.

 

So what kept me reading then?

Author is very creative and you could feel all that untapped potential in the story, you keep having this feeling that the next chapter will be amazing.

 

 

TL;DR: You know this feeling when you are about to sneeze but in the end you don't? well, author manages to keep you just like that through the whole story. So 2/5 overall enjoyment. Hopefully next story will be awesome, as it has many good comments here in RRL.

I just managed to get to Chapter 23 and read it. This will sadly be where I'll be dropping it.

One of the things that kept me interested is seeing the crazy woman that was obsessed with the MC in his past live return to the story. It came and went and I was left disappointed. Nothing really interesting happens. They resolve a misunderstanding that sounds pettier then anything and then she leaves. I'd much rather have the woman stay in the story as an actual character and I find her and the MC to be a more interesting pair then anyone else.

The story tended to be a mess, There was never a real set goal for the MC and it seemed more like the MC was just reacting to things happening with rarely ever taking the initiative it seems. Sure there were some scenes where he leads the story like the awakening scene. But he, for the most part, seemed lost in the story.

I also find it a bit sad, I liked the start of the story he was a child and didn't talk. I liked seeing people react to this baby that is much smarter then it should be. Then we get things like him starting to talk constantly. I was more hoping for the MC on the outside to be a character that shows little emotion and doesn't talk. 

Other things like barely giving any attention to the sisters. For the longest part of the story, The sisters were barely even characters and we rarely got any mention of them besides "My sister did this" 

I feel like the climax of the story has happened at this point. We got the MC awakening her power and the disappointing reunion of the MC and the crazy girl. 

I did enjoy it for the most part. But I ended up dropping it at this point cause I can't see me liking it anymore.

Everyone sucks at the start

The writing is so obviously bad I don't think anyone can take this story at face value. What should instead be looked at is how this story is a growing point for the authour.

Ignore my 0.5 star rating, really this story should be a 2-3 star rating. I just despise the fetish ignorant people have for Japanese culture and have now dropped this story when in-universe the katana is now being used as the ONLY weapon usable for 1 of 4 ULTIMATE UNIVERSE FIGHTING STYLES OF SUPER BADASS EPICNESS GODLIKE PEW PEW. 

Katanas are shit weapons created by a xenophobic isolationist culture and exist because the Japanese did not have access to nor metallurgical knowledge of how to make better steel. It's bad enough that D&D treats Katana's as equivalent to Masterwork +1 bastard sword's by default. The level of cringe is off the charts.

Like I said, this story is notable only because it's a good example of an authour starting out and improving. Otherwise it is bad and should be easily passed over for better things to read.

This story took a sad and disgusting turn.

I've read Another Story by this author and it was really great, so I decided to try this one and I'm very disappointed. While I was not happy with the main character being seen as someone people were attracted to even at her young age, I could deal with it because  those feelings weren't acted on.the  Whole situation with the mother was creepy but seemed to be veering toward being solved. Then the author  crossed the line  and you have this 13 14 year old girl engaged in a sexual act with an adult and the mother gets Dragged In even if it's mentally. I don't care if she has the mind of her previous life in the story she is 13 14 years old and  its disgusting that the author had her engaged in a sexual act.

It was really exciting and fun at first and i hoped it would stay grounded like that but sadly it opened up too big too fast and the MC became rather unlikable..... to be honest the writing is just bad, with repetitiveness, mumblings and boring cast
