EDIT: Don't read Book 2
Reading the name and prologue at first I thought this would be another cliche story but boy was I wrong
The MC here is unique, instead of the mister super nice guy or edgy "fuck humanity for wronging me" kind of MC he's more like how you would expect nobility to act. He has super devoted servants, is ridiculously OP, doesn't hesitate to kill people who deserve it and doesn't shy away from lending a helping hand. I really like him.
The story itself is more slice of life style, there's really no big bad or main purpose (maybe how he got his powers?). Still only 5 chapters in though so this will probably be expanded on.
Another thing I really love about this is how huge the chapters are, 5 chapters felt more like 15. No cliffhangers between chapters, always ends at a satisfying spot. Never thought this was actually important to me till I read this and noticed how nice it is. Grammar is also readable, that's always a plus.
Definetely give this read.
I recommend giving it a read. It's kind of generic but that's not always a bad thing. Some times good plain vanilla is the best. The grammar already puts it in the top percentile.
As for the characters, I'm enjoying the MC so far. He's a conflicted person, especially during those moments where people are all looking down on him for being weak. He has to acclimate to that kind of strong eat the weak envoirment, and it's clearly shown. It's not like one of those stories where someone transmigrates and instantly fits in.
All the other characters though? They leave much to be desired. Way too many arrogant people. Even if someone is arrogant to the bone, they wouldn't be as nonesensical as these people act. For no reason at all picking a fight with someone who hasn't offended you is just stupid.
Only 11 chapters out so far, but it was a really great start. It's kind of generic, but if you like the genre I'm sure you'll be immediately into this. I didn't find the MCs reactions from getting transported to be unbelivable, in fact I like his personality so far. From what we've seen it seems like he's not one of those types that ends up somewhere else, and immediately loses all his modern person values.
If there's any negative, it's that I don't much like the system here. So far it's not bad, but I see the potential for crazy bloat when EVERYTHING is a skill that goes from lvl 0-100. I'm worried it'll start taking pages in the future and I'll have to keep multiple tabs open to keep track of it. Another sort of negative is the lack of side characters. I say sort of because this is most likely due to there only being 11 chapters. I hope it changes in the future, a lot of these types of stories fall into the trap of actually treating it like a game, with no human interaction. Which are usually nice to read at the start, but get it gets stale fast when all the MC does is grind out levels for this skill and that skill. MC is godlike but never uses his power, spends his time as an E rank adventurer collecting plants and 'hiding' his power. Yuck. But, in the end that's just a future worry. I'm sure the author has plans to keep the story interesting.
I also appreciate that the story is completely readable. No 5th grade writing here folks.
Give it a read!
I really enjoyed this one.
The MC is a bit on the overpowered side, but I absolutely love how he changes through the story. The story itself is interesting, it's kind of slice of life, but with more action than the usual. The world building is incredible here, and don't get me started on the magic system.
The magic system used here allows for pretty much anything you can think of. This gives the author the ability to throw in crazy abilities, which leaves me excited for the future of this story.
The grammar is readable, no obvious mistakes.
If there was any negatives, it would be that there isn't too many interesting side characters. It's pretty much a one man show so far, but I'm hoping that's bc there's only 15 chapters released. I definitely recommend this.
Holy crap. This is so freaking good. Why is this not topping the charts?
The start seems like one of those ridiculous stories that are 95% wish fullfilment and 5% story. I have to tell you guys, IT'S NOT. There's a cohesive story here, and even though the MC is kind of OP, it's not done in a stupid way that leaves no challenge. It's SATISFYING.
The actual plot of the story is really interesting. I usually HATE it when the systems have personalities. They're usually just a gateway for the author to add dumb jokes. But this story does it really well. I found myself actually reading the dialogue between the system and our MC. The side characters? We haven't gotten to know them too well but they're all interesting to me so far. I want to know more about them.
As for the MC, which I was most iffy about going into the story? She/he is amazing. I usually don't like genderbend MCs, they either get over the genderbend immediatly (then spend the next chapter feeling their female bodies up and getting excited) so that there was no point to the actual genderbend, or spend the entire story not accepting the situation and angsting over it, which isn't fun to read about. Here the logic for the MC getting over it makes sense in a twisted way.
The grammar is also far better than the usual junk that we see here. It's clean and readable, which is all I ask.
I originally intended to just skim this as I ran into this story randomly, but I ended up binging it. READ THIS.
I was going for a late night browse and checking out multiple random stories but wow, I only meant to read a little but ended up binging this entire thing. This is incredibly entertaining, with good readable grammar. The idea isn't anything new, but the execution is.
Haven't you ever wondered how a xianxia world would look if everyone WASN'T batshit insane? Look no further! The story so far is about the MC living his life like any normal person. He doesn't run into arrogant young master after arrogant young master, nor does he find any world shattering beauties. Shit, even if he DOES run into them later on during the story, they will actually mean something. World shattering beauties aren't so world shattering when the MC meets a new one every other chapter.
I like the way side characters are handled here. They use their brains, everyone has some little story that you notice when you pay attention. It's kind of aggravating how every villager has this 'us vs outsiders' mindset, but it makes sense when you take into account the time period they live in. I can't judge too much though, because there isn't too many of them so far. I really hope the MCs mother has a good ending!
As for our MC? I like his attitude and drive for betterment. If there's anything I don't like about this story is the way magic is handled. The MC constantly goes on about how he doesn't know how magic is treated in the current day, so he doesn't use it. That's fine and all.... but he never tries to even figure it out?! For all he knows, in the eyes of other people there is no such thing as magic, just strong cultivaters! In fact, what is stopping him from masking some minor magic as just a martial technique? Also, if he can put an entire caravan of people to sleep with magic... well that's just insanely abusable and it makes me wonder why he never abused it back at his village.
Other than that though, this story is defo worth a read.
I have to say, this is an incredibly written story. You can really tell the author put some thought into the characters. Not to mention the fact that the english actually being readable already puts it above 90% of the stories on this site.
That's not to say that there isn't any negatives though. For one the gimmick is that the MC here is living two lives at the same time.... It's a pretty cool idea, but the execution wasn't too great here.
The dreamworld is perfect, the issue is with the real world. It's incredibly boring. The entire thing is about some kid who goes to school and is trying to ask out his crush... What happened to the super hero story? It was incredibly difficult to care about anyone or anything in the real world. The story is set up to make it seem like a huge mistake when the instructer rates his power as completely useless for anything practical, but that's actually the truth here. What's the point of making this setting and putting so much effort into it, when the story would've been the same if it was about a guy from our world living in a dream fantasy world.
The entire 'super hero academy' thing is not used at all. I found myself skimming through the real world sections. Sometimes I even felt like I was reading two different books at once, one incredibly boring and one looking incredibly interesting. It was jarring.
Maybe others will like that style, I personally didn't. But, even if like me that doesn't sound like something you'd enjoy, I still say give this story a read. The dreamworld alone can carry it.
READ THIS IMMEDIATLY. Such a good book, I opened it at first just to check it out when I saw all the good reviews. Next thing I know it's an hour later and I've caught up.
Holy crap this is AMAZING. I was wondering how you can make time travel not OP as all hell.... well this is a good example. Because they're so much stronger than him, the MC has to constantly die again and again to get ANYWHERE against his opponets. He has to use his brain to the max and cheat using time travel to create tools. I love all the creative ways he's using his power to get ahead.
Not to mention the actual characters, wow. Every single one feels like a person with their own motivations. The villains have REASONS for being villains. Do you know how rare that is? Some of them not very good reasons, but still! The grammar is also good, I understood everything as I read it.
The story? Seems like it's actually planned out here. There's mystery, it's kind of funny, plenty of action, and even a bit of face slappin.
One thing that needs work is the character descriptions, I've read 18 chapters and I can't really get a good picture of the MC in my head. I'm not saying to pull any xianxia "jade like skin, silky black hair" bullshit, but some more references to how the characters look would be helpful.
All in all? READ THIS NOW.
This is one that xianxia fans should defo give it a try, especially if you're sick and tired of the usual cool guy who knows everything MCs. This MC is a shameless, narcistic, moron. And I absolutely love him for it. The humor here is just great, the conversations between the family just kill me. I also really like the story line, the author seems to actually have a plan here, which is always nice.
The grammar is a bit strange but the story is still readable so I'm not gonna complain.
All in all? Give it a try.
