I was unsure at first if i would enjoy this story but i quickly began to enjoy it. unfortunately it started to become inconsistant and less enjoyable after about 50 chapters. I would suggest people read to the (spoilers) fight with the lightning dragon and assume our MC dies of his wounds to get the most enjoyment out of this story. The first part would get 4 stars from me but after that it would get 2.5-2 stars

  • Overall Score

So, the reason I'm writing this review is because not only is it a genuinely good story, it also has alot of bad reviews driving it's rating down. Don't give it a .5 star review just because you don't like one little thing.

  I really wanted to like this story because it seemed good at first, but then it just got stupid after he met the demon girl.Spoiler: Spoiler

The reason I couldn't tolerate it was because of the mc's whole appeal was how he was betrayed and wouldn't trust anyone again, but the first person he meets he tells her his entire life story. At that point I couldn't continue, I could understand the mc revealed it further down the line but for someone who was recently betrayed he trusts way too easily.

The author did try to bridge the gap by writing about how the mc feels some sort of pull towards her but the mc was betrayed by someone he love which I believe would give him an even more cautious view on anyone he feels the same way towards. It would have been so much better if the mc slowly started to reveal who and what he was slowly as he began to trust her more, but instead everything was just released in one go; I feel like it was a missed opportunity.

Great Story I Second every other review !

Sooo im not much of a reviwer but i've been reading stories and any kind and any fanfiction i found for the last 8years and this one is one of my favorites this year. Atm i've read every chapter and as statet in some reviews the first chapters are kind "clunky" but it gets impressively better with every chapter, so if the Summary doesn't convince any other reader i really recommend it. Its a very very fun story to read and kept me awake all night im lucky its weekend. ^^

The story is so good, the MC is op and the pace of his growing is not so slow, it's just perfect.

I started reading it and couldn't stop until it was 4 am. However, i only realized it was 4 am because I had already finished reading all the chapters and had time to look at the clock xD.

Full action and fuck logic

Style: Typical xianxia where there are stupid young master that provoque the Mc and MC that put oil on fire to make even more foe.

Story: Not original but good overall, like action and power level. I would like to see the statut of other of the same level. The only problem is that there is no one of the same level of power as the MC so far or power that could rival it.

Grammar: Bad, i am not good at finding fault and not a native speaker but i find some.

Character: The MC kill a student, beat a teacher, put no respect to the principal, but they still let him rest to the school? Then he injure another student, then chain a teacher and he is given the top secret of the school? The girl are weak, and are there to be protected.

Xianxia logic, so to read for action so you have to let go of the logic when you read.

Edit: The author changed some thing in the story after my review, the mc have regret for what he have done , new level of power and they stop giving face for to the mc. Good try for the author and alway think of what you would do in the place of your perso.

A fun story that needs a once over

---Review at Chapter 42---

The story is great. The characters have really come into their own since the rocky beginning.

Unfortunately, the grammar is more than a little rough and goes so far as to detract from the reading experience.

If you are looking for an editor or atleast someone to proofread let me know.

Originality can mend its flaws

Although is not perfect, is pretty good.

Grammar & Writing style: Crow, the author, has gifted us an amazing story, his first story, that's one of the reasons the writing style is so... Mundane, boring, amateur-ish. Still it has to be said that Crow is improving quite fast so if you're going to read it, ignore the several flaws in the few first chapters.

His grammar is also quite bad but as his writing, he's getting better, probably just because he has no proofreaders or he himself skips this part it's important to proofread. 


Storyline and characters: I have to say, this is the most interesting part of this original novel, the originality Crow gives to his story is amazing to say the least, as his first story, the building was mediocre at first, the characters had no actual deepth and the story has several major flaws, but with each chapter you can notice how Crow is getting better, wich is one of the things I enjoy the most, at first, the main characters were just simple minded fools, now they have become interesting. The whole premise of a tortured man becoming a parasite is quite good.

Yeah, it's obvious for everyone that 'Once human, Now a parasite' has several loopholes, flaws and gramatical errors, but every first story is like this. I will read this story to the end, and after that Crow will have grown to a good writer, I assure you, the next story he writes will be 100% better than this, this is the beginning of a novelist who relies on his originality. Can't wait to see his next chapters.

Decent wish-fulfillment story.  Ok grammar, seen much worse.  I only have a few minor issues with it.

1.  The title is somewhat misleading.  While the MC is able to function as a parasite, he seems to just use it to give stats to his main body.  Its not really a problem, just some people would expect the parasite feature to be more important since its the title.

2.  The MC's attitude is way to hostile.  Even when he is not killing people, he is bashing their personality in his head.  For every little thing that upsets his extreme morals.  I get that he is suppose to be broken.  But if he stays this broken, the story will never be anything more than a series of fights with no real plot.  Hopefully the author will have the MC grow a bit.

3.  The super spiteful MC totally trusts (and falls for) the girl way to quick.  He isn't a harem-seeking MC so his love at first sight attraction to her seems off.  Especially since he was betrayed before.  Its a magic fantasty world though, and the MC isn't human.  So maybe a reason is given for it later.  Though I'd rather have seen their feelings develop over time.

Again though, the story isn't bad.  It doesn't really have anything new.  But no one does anymore.  The story makes sense.  And the MC isn't just a puppet doing what someone else tells him to.  So its better than it could be.
