Greetings, guys, I've finished translating to top 100 chapters of Castle of Black Iron under the editing and supervision of Geoffrey. During the past several months, we've worked so hard. Thanks to Geo's editing, I correct many errors and improve my translation a lot. So I give my translation a five star to encourage myself. In the near future, we might be able to update 2 chapters a day. Thanks for your reading and waiting for your reading, guys~~
Greetings, Over two months have passed since our novel Castle of Black Iron was released. We've always been working late til midnight so as to ensure a good translation quality, Geo contributes a lot to correct my improper translations. To tell the truth, I really appreciate him. Thanks for you guys' sincere comments~~we will work harder and harder. I guess we will soon be able to interact with each other on this platform~
A Breath of fresh air compared to other translated Chinese novels. The main character acts his age and is not too arrogant. The sexual undertone does not detract from the story since the story is about hormonal teenagers who do not come into regular contact with the fairer ***. The world in this novel is quite different from usual cultivation worlds since it is a sort of steampunk world. I enjoyed this novel and I am looking forward for more. Thank you and keep up the good work!
first and foremost for me is update stability which is way better than other translators in this site.(though I still feel 7 chapters a week is now less, compare to other sites like wuxia world where there are many people who are translating around 14 chapters a week or more). other things like story development and Character Design as of now is pretty good.
Still fine for first... 200 chapters? I loved the idea, the incipit of the story: an artificial subspace for yourself, which helps you grow in streghts and has lots of potential for even political or military situations. Perfect. Then the sh*tstorm began. At first, it was a with fine dropplets of p!ss. I call it the "yellow festival" or "yellow rain". Because it's showering praises about chinese stuff... Name whatever you want: body, mind, technology, food, etc... They have it better. Bigger empires, bloodlines etc. But that was only the beginning. The real gross natural phenomenon began when the MC went from "perverted but still somewhat respectful pubescent boy" to "rapist without remorse" without a single reason. I'm not exaggerating here. He actually tried to stick his thing inside her thing without her consent, while she wildly tryied to free herself. What. The. Actual. F**k. It's not only the rape that greatly disturbs me. It's the total "I dont give a single f**k" about character development or actual reason. Also, the story was just slowly becoming worse so that finally made me drop it. Do you have a functionally brain? Do you have a gram of self respect? Don't start reading this. You will feel disgusted and sorry for the waste of potential of this story.
The author is to inconsistent and honestly he's just not very good. This story is littered with so many instances that just make you roll your eyes and wonder if the author has ever had any interaction with living beings because the scenarios he comes up with the actions of the people in this novel are simply unrealistic. The hardest part was getting through the firs 110+ chapters because it felt like I was reading a novel written by a child. That or he is a closet pedophile.
At chapter 525, this story takes a nosedive. Time-skips. Idiot-ball. Nerfing the MC: destroying a source of strength that had been a significant portion of the plot this far. It's as though the author decided to press a big reset-button on the story. Probably the story will recover from this, given its ratings. MC has a lot of plot armor, certainly enough to survive the author's blatant manipulations and the MC's plot-induced foolishness. The world background is still interesting. But at this moment I'm annoyed and disgusted with the MC, the author, and the direction the story is taking. Might be best to wait for a couple months before trying to read again.
From Chapter 1-317~ Starting off with this review, This story is really not suitable for young readers especially when it teaches inaccurately how love should be and how to interact with women. Harem/Adult is the 60-70% of the novel from the chapters I read while 30-40% is the cultivation/power-up/fighting/adventure part. There are many other novel out there that does have harem too but this ones is especially vicious and 18++ depicting a young teenager which is underage doing really ***** stuff with either young counterpart or mature women mentioned by him. If I wanted any ***** stuff, I would suggest ***** videos or novels like 50 Shades. People justify his action by using reason like undergoing puberty but I don't think that is a valid reason to justify his action of forcing women into doing things they don't want (especially in chapter 315-316). If undergoing puberty causes teenagers to turn beast like that, women in the real world would be scarred for life. Puberty is initiated by hormones and the moral of a person would still exist in a person even if there is puberty so the MC is really unrealistic in this way. MC only love women by their appearance or body and not into their personality at all would make people question whether his love is true or not. I always wonder how this novel manage to dodge so many censor committee in China though. Anyway, the point is if you really hate having women be treated as just objects or harem in general or avoid making your minds dirty, then avoid this at all cost. Moving to the true review if you are planning to read it, I will still be reading this novel because I find his adventure/cultivation really unique and great actually while the 18+ scene is treated as filler by me usually. Translation quality is 4.8 stars for being really understandable and translator do its research. Some play on words in the novel is hard to grasp but overall, amazing quality. Great Job translator. Update stability is consistent but due to 6 chapter only per week, I favor update frequency more than stability especially when the novel have 2012 chapters so 300+ chapter now means that to complete this novel will take atleast 2-3 years or more at this pace. 2.4 stars. Story development is 3.0 star as it does progress smoothly but with the unnecessary fillers present, it really slows the novel down. Only because of the uniqueness of the ability of MC and theory did it manage to keep me wanting more of the novels. Character Design is 2.6 stars for having many female characters with no personality ,basically use to feed ego of the MC and serve as puppets. MC itself tries to be smart by hiding his ability but soon throw everything out of the winds with feats that is unimaginable by people, attracting so much attention which can be avoided by a truly smart MC.Four words to describe MC, shameless rogue with superpowers. At least we fully know MC personality. World Building is simply in the best direction now with a war of human and demons is starting and being interesting with the ability of MC. Author did a good job in talking about the history of the world where modern earth undergo a catastrophe thus reversing to ancient state. The science usually don't make sense but I don't mind as much. 4.2. Overall, average score is 3.4 stars. Average novel.
This story has high unethical pornographic content.This is a perverted story where MC is a xxx maniac and drools overy every women.every women in this story is described as a slut by birth.the plot of this story is like every other unreal bastardised stories where a brainless and talentless fool becomes OP because of luck and this low witted fool survives all dangerous situations with his perverted brain because he is the bastard son of lady luck.i implore this perverted idiot author to pick some thing sensible and complies with all the morals(not just the ones you like).
I really like parts of the story, but unfortunately, the racism and ***ism in the story go way overboard. Just the broad general remarks about all of a certain race or *** being a certain way, and assuming things like all girls talk with each other and form a group opinion of someone after an offhand remark is so offputting that it detracts from the story. The MC almost rapes girls multiple times and it's just brushed off like "lol, he's just playing" without ever having any real remorse for his actions.
