Monster Soul Online.

A virtual reality MMORPG known primarily for one thing: there are no rules. It is a lawless world where humans can shed the masks they wear and unleash the cruel beasts inside. It is in this very world that our story takes place.

After our protagonist, Sila, is defeated in a match that was in no way fair, he is forced to venture into this world after his master goes missing. The only clue? His opponent from the duel, Montra, says that he kidnapped Sila's master. Outside of the game, they are but two young men in a vast world filled with many kinds of people. Inside Monster Soul, however, Montra reigns supreme as the Magic Emperor, one of the top four players. Sila, on the other hand, is just starting out, and he has a lot of catching up to do if he wants to get answers from Montra.

But not everything is as it seems in this world, and what starts off as a simple journey to find his missing teacher turns into a quest of previously unpredictable proportions. Sila uncovers a world beneath the reality he thought he knew, filled with martial artists capable of incredible feats. From the legendary Tiger God to the peerless Sword Prodigy, Sila will learn about and even meet some of these figures that other martial artists both revere and fear. His quest will push him to his limits and bring out both the best and worst parts of his inner self. His light and his darkness. Whether he makes it out while retaining some part of his original personality or not, only time will tell.

Needs Editing (pre-ch.40) and Poorly Written

Reviewed at: Chapter 101: The First Step

Edit: I have edited the review to reflect that it is not poor translation but rather the editing that needs work. Post Ch.40 reads well, though chapters prior to it have problems such as mixture of tenses, missing conjunctives or pronouns that hopefully will get edited out in time.

Following the usual standard of translated asian novels, Monster Soul Online has little in the way of improvements compared to its contemporaries. The MC is your typical mish-mash of terrible tropes. He is overpowered from the start, and continues to be overpowered, he is trained by numerous masters, yet is dense as a brick, meaning, if a teacher says something, he will parrot the same thing in confusion, and this happens in almost all interactions between the mc and someone else, without fail.

The story itself is poorly written, poorly in the way that some random, nameless vice leader of a guild in opposition of the MC suddenly comes across a boon (after MC beats him up) that will make him way more powerful than the top 4 'emperor' players who are supposedly the strongest in the game and are able to deal with the mc easily.  Yet i think its suffice to say we all know how that will turn out, regardless of how powerful anyone gets, the MC will trounce them in the end, as thats how it always works out in these kinds of novels.

There is very little hardship, and very little 'at stake'. The MC acts with brashness and urgency when I, as the reader, do not feel any urgency. Everything that takes place feels incredibly forced, with little rhyme or reason for taking place the way they did other than the move the story's plot along.

It's the bog standard translated wuxia you have probably seen a thousand times before, with all of the cons it entails.

The biggest flaw of this one (for me) is the protagonist, who gives the ten year old standard shonen wannabes a run for their money in the category of moronic denseness and undeserved pride.

Wuxia Training System - Naive Young Lord

Reviewed at: Chapter 336: The Path Not Recommend by Zarnak

Releases new chapters ever 3-4 days.  Will approximately finish in Aug-Sept 2021 at this pace... rough estimate.

This is a wuxia story taking place in a digital VR world. The characters are playing for real-world stakes and the digital skills do, to some degree, translate into real-world skills for the players (or so it has been promised in the story).  This is not your standard wuxia story, or steriotypical VR gamer story, but lies somewhere in-between; levels and wuxia cultivation progression follow a set process, but the rate of progress is a bit arbitrary within the story.

Generally, I've found it to be a decent story will well developed characters.  While I have criticisms, I found it binge-worthy.  I recommend the story for individuals who enjoy both the wuxia and VR/RPG genres.

This story is, to the best of my knowledge, a work being translated.  The authors comments indicate that the full length of the story will be around 450 chapters; this review is done after reading 335.

The main character of this story Sila is a young twenty-something helper in a martial arts studio.  He lives with his foster-parent, who raised him in the dojo; he was not, however, allowed to learn any of the martial arts techniques.  The story begins when he is assaulted by a steriotypical "Young Noble".

The universe is modern, with well developed wuxia martial arts systems hidden (an underworld of sorts).  The world is also at the cusp of immersive VR entertainment; one of the lesser known virtual game worlds, from the creator of the VR technology, is Monster Soul Online.  99.5% of the story takes place online, in the game, where the game world has taken the martial arts, psionic, and other skills that were demonstrated by the underworld practitioners invited to participate in the beta-test of the game, and translated them into more grandiose versions of themselves in the virtual world.


  • Overall Score

It's insulting toward game developer and gamer. Bad game design, generic cookie cutter story, the universe revolving around MC. blergh...

And please, don't call this dumpster fire a Wuxia, not only it's not a wuxia, it's insulting toward the genre to call this wuxia.

  • Overall Score

It isnt a deep read, it just something to pass the time with, and its ok at that.  If you want to read an awesome story read something else. Review given at chapter 131.

  1. Don't know why all the reviews are so weird and/or shit. 


You follow the main character, who is very, anime, dense, as he tries to find his teacher and get revenge from his martial arts rival who kidnapped him, in VR.

Learning a bunch of video game skills and moves, slowly making friends and finding out painful truths, he journeys through the world. 


Just good old fun really. Not extremely deep, not extremely dramatic, just a slice of life action wuxia with some moments of seriousness. 


There's lasers, turning into birds, demons, fucking Sebastian, demons, angels and slimes. You'll love the slimes.

I'm gonna start this off by saying that I'm kinda supprised that I made it through the first 50-75 chapters. It's not that they wern't good, they were just kinda generic and the MC (Sila) kept on making dumb choices.

I am so glad that I stuck around though! the story has developed into one of my favorite VRMMOs. It obviously has a strong eastern emphasis, but I think that it only improves the story and sets it apart from the VRRPGs that I've read on kndle in the past.

Basically, the chapters up to 177 (where I am at the moment) more than make up for the start, plus the release rate is really fast atm (8 a day) and even once it slows down it's gonna still be 3-4 a week.

I don't mind reading this story with all its cons, but the author test our sanity with the MC. Sila is the one I can't tolerate. Foolishness after foolishness without growing a little bit. Even ten year old are better than MC, taking everything for granted and never learning anything from past mistakes. It's very painful to read the journey of such Characters.

I still don't understand the romantical relationship between varee and sila at the beginning of story. The world author built is very good but the MC is a real test on readers how much dumbness they tolerate.
