    If you were thinking of reading this, don't. I can't think of anyone that this would be a good read for. But then maybe that is me and if you do enjoy it, I'm glad you have find a good book for you!

    This isn't worth your time. Double returns apparently mean 10x, 100x or anything else really. What will happen when he provides power to a disciple changes constantly over the course of a few chapters. Could be translation rather than the author but everything else feels similar. At the end of one chapter, the sect master is respecting the MCs decision and at the start of the next chapter, he is angry about it.

    Translators cleaned up their translation! That is something you don't see often on here. Used to say something rather different. The new text makes a lot more sense.

    Chu Feng had to use enhancement points for the enhancement process and 30 million yuan worth of enhancement points were directly gone. If it was a Beastmaster without resources, how could he afford it? Another example was Diming high school year 3. They only had a budget of 10 million yuan to nurture a sovereign-level Beastmaster. Without a commander-level Beastmaster, no one would dare to spend money like this.

    I quite like beast taming novels and this one seems like a decent one for the genre. The author is clearly trying to spice things up by merging two types of books, side character and beast taming. The MC and FL are boring but in a way that could be really good if done well. I am interested enough to keep following it. That said, the translation is bad. Like the tamed beast is both small enough to fit on the MCs shoulder and big enough to carry him and two others. There are typos in chapter titles, duplicated text, gender is all over the place, and the list goes on. There are also nitpicking concerns, like a top school 'teaches' by ignoring students and telling them to figure it out on their own? Overall though, I am hopeful.

    I don't really need to repeat the other reviews but I wouldn't bother with this one. That said, what is going on with the new novels getting selected? We are down to four this week and all of them are pretty terrible. The ones for last week were also really bad. Ratings are super low too. Normally there is one or two each week I think is at least decent but two weeks of nothing but bad novels, and not many of them, is a worry.

    The start of this is filled with cliches that happen because they should in this kind of novel. Clan gives a past genius years and lots of resources to cultivate again. He doesn't so they ignore the clan law that says to kick him out and instead give him a quiet and easy job in the middle of nowhere. In exchange, the MC sees them as a trashy clan and plans to abandon them because...??? They weren't happy that he was taking in all these resources? He knew why the resources the clan provided weren't enough for him to cultivate but didn't bother to tell them and then is angry at them for not just giving him everything because he wanted it. Yea. The MC isn't likeable at all. The plot seems pretty bland too. I'll pass on reading further.

    Just to be clear: The clan spent tons of money on him for years and when it looked like he was going to be useless they bent the rules and didn't ban him from the family. Even arranged what looks like a semi decent job for him. That clan is the one he wants to abandon now? Because they didn't do enough for him? When he didn't bother to tell them about why he was using so many resources? I think the MC is the bad one here.

    Lin Mo could not help but roll his eyes. It was fine for him to abandon such a clan. He could not be bothered.

    I had a slightly different take which is that this is a bad translation and wizard might mean something more like witch/warlock. In that case, it would make a bit more sense that monsters follow people who get powers from demons. That said, no idea what the heck is actually supposed to be said here.

    However, based on Mike's experience in his previous life, wherever wizards were, monsters would follow.

    I wouldn't waste your time on this one. I am not going to go into each every thing that is wrong but the 'characters' are terrible and the plot is bad. The power is... not good. No thanks.

    So the same people reach the peak of the same stage twice? Just ten years apart? What?

    There were cultivators who reached the peak of the Qi Refinement stage at the age of 20 and the peak of the Qi Refinement stage at the age of 30. After consuming the Foundation Establishment Pills, they became Foundation Establishment cultivators.

    Early days (25 chapters in) but so far this is a very solid novel. The characters seem interesting, the cheat could be fun, and in general it seems well written. I am optimistic and definitely think it is worth a look!

    Are these two stages supposed to be King? Since he has a king level pet and the principal is a king level expert? Or did I miss something?

    This translation is seriously bad. Every time it swaps realms like this it totally pulls me out of the story as I try to figure out what it was supposed to say.

    Chu Feng looked at the extraordinary-level Rock Behemoth in front of him and also fell silent. The Wild Bear was indeed powerful. Once it went all out, it might even be able to kill the extraordinary level in an instant. However, the extraordinary level was a different ballgame.

    This is a bad copy of other beast tamer novels that is also badly translated. Unscientific Beast Taming is one of the many novels that are basically the same novel but I found it a lot better done. Likewise, the translation is ... all over the place at times. Not unreadable but not good. For example, there have been many times in these first 20 chapters where power levels are swapped around which is confusing as I have had to repeatedly re evaluate what is going on. I really enjoy this genre but this is not a good book.

    Edgy mess that isn't worth anyone's time. Translation is so poor that I have no idea what is going on with a number of important things like what cultivation levels are or how cultivation even works. The MC has no motivation other than to ... be evil? I could go on but it isn't worth my time.

    Harem seems really likely which is a huge minus. A lot of this was hard to read, not because of the translation but because of the really bad characters. The ML is almost inhuman. He lacks the ability to have emotions, or at least display them. He is embarrassed at work so he has to quit because ... ? The FL feels similarly strange. I get that she is supposed to be bad at interacting with people but her reasoning for things is just strange. She is pretty so she is wary of people being nice to her. Sure makes sense. The next thing mentioned is that the MC was nice to her once and so she stalked him down and forced a first date. Again, it was just jarringly off. The story seems to be moving in the direction of one man with tons of OP lovers who rely on him totally while he is totally independent and has tons of secrets. It is cliche and really not fun to read at this point. I'll give this one a hard pass.

    I like these kinds of novels but this one is bad. The story and world is too simple. MC explores the wilderness with a low tier beast and conveniently ONLY finds poison type beasts. His beast just so happens to be immune to poison. Did he look at a map to find them? Did he avoid others? Just has really good luck? Who know the author just treats it like nothing. The whole book so far is like this. Characters aren't described, the world is too bland, etc.

    Definitely a good story so far and hopefully it gets picked. There are a variety of rough parts. The translation is hard to follow at a few points and can't decide on things like if people cultivate Qi or Aura. The MC is overall an interesting character but his lack of reaction to murdering lots of people sticks out as odd. The little girl is a little too obedient for her age but is otherwise another solid character. So far I like it and definitely recommend it as overall it is a very solid read. The world seems interesting and I am curious where the story will go. Only 25 chapter out right now though so YMMV.

    The premise is interesting, everything else is bad. Character interaction is really bad, the world is not believable, and the story is insane (in a bad way). Everything that happened pulled me out of the story because of how unbelievable/bad it was.
