    I only got through eight chapters. The novel is far too ridiculous for my tastes. Some reviews have labeled the MC as stupid, but I feel he is not serious or even real. His behaviors and reactions resemble those of a player (PC) in an artificial environment populated with non-player characters (NPCs). While it was great in the beginning for him to fulfill the prior body's owner's task (even if he did it out of greed, not to retain his scholarly image of not breaking commitments), he immediately moved to sell his books. There is no exploring the world, nor is there any exploring of cultivation goods prices. He has no proof that his manuals work. After all, system novels that troll hosts are now popular. He simply acquired a vendor spot and plopped down... And the author wonders why everyone calls MC stupid. Also, when MC needs someone to use this cultivation manual, he goes to get a loli in the typical Chinese pedo way. Later, he finds a whole orphanage with children/lolis/shotas. MC is also a typical snob. He despises those who look down on him while looking down on everyone else. [He waved at the servant impatiently as if swatting a fly. He didn't even bother to turn around and face Li Chun.] [Meanwhile, Ikasa turned back to the booklets and thought, "Mere dog barking for his master." Ptui.] [Hehehe, that felt good. Serves you right for looking down on a Scholar!] MC is an unlikable person. While humor is subjective, this novel tries to squeeze laughs out of stupid situations and 'let's kick a dead horse 1000 times'. I don't even want to know how many more times situations involving the book's stupid names being the joke: "Ah, stupid-sounding name," at which point NPCs will become enraged at 'poor' MC. It wasn't funny the first time, and it wasn't funny the tenth time either. I suggest this book to everyone who has a goldfish memory. You've been a happy goldfish your entire life because you can't remember hearing the same joke 1000th times.

    I read up to chapter 14. Writing style: Dramatic Lama! If it can be written dramatically, it will be! Meanwhile, MC could be described as dramatic OP emo. Dramatically, his family was killed right before his eyes. He was killed dramatically, while the bad guy explains that this is the end. Bla bla dramatically, bla bla. Dramatically, he cried, feeling pain that nobody has ever felt. Bla bla dramatically, bla bla. Dramatically, he got his hand bitten off, noticing it was gone only when he looked down at it. Blah blah, dramatic blah. Every scene tries to be that moment in movies where music plays or it moves in slow motion, or when silence stretches before a loud scream! While there is nothing wrong with having dramatic scenes, when you have chapter after chapter after chapter of dramatic everything, you not only lose the dramatic feel, but the novel begins to read as a comedy. There is a reason why nobody takes drama queens seriously. There is a reason why Drama Queens are a joke. Too dramatic for my tastes, and there are too many unanswered questions. Judging by other reviews, those questions aren't answered even after 100 chapters. I recommend this novel to dramatic lamas and drama queens! Meanwhile, I'll be fleeing before I start painting my nails black and gloomily looking at everything while muttering: "Nobody understands me, I have such deep feelings!" The following are some dramatic sentences with spoilers: "But eventually, my dreaded laughter had turned into the loud and wretched wails of a boy who was now in pain... A pain that very few would have experienced."/ just hours before, all humanity was killed off in brutal way, but only he can feel this special snowflake pain! XD "Even though I was crying, it was not because of my family's death, the death of my closest friend, nor was it due to the death of my girlfriend in the hands of those disgusting, deplorable aliens. Instead, I was simply crying out of agony. I felt in pain. The pressure of wanting to survive. The adrenaline streamed through me for so long that I had become numb to its effects. The fear of death hitting me at every corner and turn. It might have seemed selfish, but at the moment, I could only care about myself and nothing else." "'Why would home make me feel like I was looking into an empty void, where I was but a speck in the infinite cosmos, floating around without any weight... Any meaning... Any help.'" "Was this going to be the end? Was I really going to fail everyone and everything that had ever believed in me? Am I really going to die in vain, just like everyone else? Was this... Was this really the end?" "I could feel an unrelenting rage build up and boil within my very blood. The rage was like nothing I had ever felt before, and even though I could understand where it had been coming from, I didn't understand why it was so intense. A piercing, destructive and chaotic killing intent began to seep out of every pore in my body until I was finally enveloped in a dense red aura."

    The author themselves asked for a review. Hopefully, they won't regret it. Leaving aside grammar issues, I believe this story suffers more from the author's inattention/laziness with simple mistakes. In the first chapter, the main character's name is written multiple times in lowercase. Not to mention, some sentences start in lowercase. "Yeah I know about the writing quality I am looking for an editor but till now have had no luck."/ Lordwlesh An editor won't solve laziness. Grammarly and other programs are free enough to fix most mistakes. "Get bored of The same annoying mindless characters having no soul of their own. The protagonist gets everything just on his whim and the world revolve around them . Then worry not this book is the right choice of yours. "/Lordwlesh That's sarcasm, right? Right? The plot is basic: a young boy/old man is taken to another world to become a lord. All of the followers appear to be brainwashed, brain dead—even the MC farts are fragrant—type characters. All I remember about MC is that he is elderly, dislikes games, likes tea, died in an amusing manner, and may have worked in theater since he speaks as if he is standing on stage and addressing the audience. Perhaps if he were British, sipping black tea would be enough to give him life as a character, but as it stands, MC is essentially a soulless stand-in for the author. Dialogues are on the stiff side, with a lot of characters exchanging info-dump piles between info-dump thoughts and paragraphs of info-dump. Those who don't care about grammar or plot will enjoy this novel. The authors' forced friends will also probably read this. I will, meanwhile, see myself out.

    There were words on my screen. I read them all till chapter 10. However, all I could hear was an author w@nking off. Inflated numbers, inflated ego. Everyone is a dumb monkey while MC is a monkey king. Here, the author unknowingly admits what a trash gamer MC is who can't play games unless he cheats: “Black Gold System? Wasn’t this the system of a single-player game that he had played before? That game was developed by a friend of his, and he asked Richard to try it out. However, due to the difficulty of the game, Richard complained a few times, so the other party specially created this system for him.” The author unknowingly admits here what a trash friend MC is who after gaining a cheat from his friend doesn’t even care to find him or worry about him: “Richard opened [Forum Chat] first. He wanted to know what was going on.” “Some people were at a loss. Many of them kept asking for help in returning to the real world. On the other hand, some ambitious people were eager to try and explore the game world. After looking at the forum for a long time, Richard’s complicated feelings gradually eased up. There were so many people. He was not alone.” Unknowingly, the author admits that MC is a trashy self-absorbed man: “Richard nodded his head in satisfaction. Only weaklings would like a cute beast-eared girl. A real man should fight against a mummy.” A real man would help his friend from whom he got the cheat to dominate the game instead of rating whatever a cute beast-eared girl or mummy if better mob. It is a novel I would recommend to trash enthusiasts. You know who you are and what you like. In the meantime, I'm leaving this dumpster fire alone.

    Not too shabby. While the beginning stumbles a little as it tries to find its voice, tempo, and emphasis, it eventually settles into its own rhythm. MC could be described as OP while attempting to prove that he is not OP. He always has enough points or luck or items to do everything. At first, Inn is squished to the side as MC does dumb things on earth, but thankfully, before I lost my patience, Inn returns to center stage, with MC's shenanigans diminished. If the author ever considers rewriting the beginning, it is advised that they devote more time to the inn and either reduce or move the MC's shenanigans later. Many low star reviews are about absence of inn in beginning chapters: “Not even half of the first 20 chapter is actually about the Inn.”/Rappel; “This has great potential right until chapter 10. The author completetly ruined their work.”/KIING (10 chapter introduces cultivators on earth and shifts focus from inn to MC shenanigans on earth); “Forced plot with cultivators and his family.”/Elder; Readers dislike for cultivation probably comes from two facts: it takes away time from the inn and every world and dimension has the same type of cultivation. All worlds have similar feeling. It is almost bad as MassEffect color ending. Choose your world, one has humans, other world has humans and dead humans, third has humans and animals, but all of them have cultivation and humans! Even none humans look like humans. Overall, readable novel if you don’t mind OP MC, cultivation, and aliens that are all human.

    OP character stories come in two different flavors. One where the main purpose of the storyline is to make it entertaining even if the MC is smarter, stronger, or more skilled than another by shifting the focus of the narrative when the MC is OP. For instance, even if the MC is overpowered, their purpose is to teach, thus it doesn't matter how strong they are since they need to make someone else stronger. OR they're trying to refrain from employing violence which might result in comedic situations. Or maybe they're just trying to live a tranquil life. And then, there is the second time of OP story. An OP character whose sole motivation is to be OP, to making inferior NPCs envious. To have pretty soulless NPC women to be around them. Each person is free to choose a flavor that they enjoy. Each individual has the right to declare the tastes of others to be garbage. I'm not a fan of this book. A soulless collection of words.

    Good transmigration stories. Similar to "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil". MC already has enough experience to breeze through all the problems. MC has a backbone and often refuses help from ML because he wants to handle things himself. A bit of insta-love from the ML in the first world, while in the next worlds it was understandable since it's the same soul. I like that the ML isn't arrogant and r*py. He respects MC and and "no" means "no" not "yes". Many BL novels tend to romanticize abusive relationships where one party is more like a pet with no rights than an equal partner. A good read for those who like world-hopping and ML pampering MC.

    18th-century Samurai, who speaks and acts like a 13-year-old edgy lord. from our century. NPCs who only spit out info dump. "Swords moves" that are described just like that, the sword moves. I imagined MC just swinging around his sword like a nutcase since no footwork, hip work was mentioned. Clearly, the author had never held a sword or gone to one of the sword clubs where you can easily learn the basics. Plain and basic, "I'm edgy therefore I kill." Readable for a younger audience, who have little experience, but anyone who has red more, will find this... tedious and boring.

    At first, this was a pretty good read, but slowly it started to get repetitive. For a novel about teachings and teachers, it's more about fights, face slapping, and 80% how great the MC is. His students (the female ones) just rave about how great he is. Male students have almost no screen time because the author probably did not want to write so many men swooning over MC. What annoyed me from the beginning was that MC gave his two underage student girls (12-13 years?) nicknames: sunny egg and papaya girl. Both referring to their breast sizes... HE WAS A TEACHER IN HIS LAST LIFE OF MODERN TIME AND NOW A TEACHER IN CULTIVATION WORLD. Chinese people and their pedophilic tendencies... The last straw was the competitive arc between schools. Yes, in this world, in order to evaluate schools and increase prestige, thus empowering students, it's a smart idea to throw them into a competition where both students and teachers die 20% or more... (sarcasm) Let's face it, such a society would not last. What is to stop other schools from murdering each other after their promising students and teachers are killed in competition? The amount of resentment and malice created in any competition would be enough to bring more than one bloody war upon the land. Not to mention that in such a competition, the brave and the strong would die first. What's the point of that? And the MC, a person from our time, is okay with murder (as are all Chinese MC). I think I am sick and tired of "*****, real-world" novels that are basically edgy 13-year-olds. A world cannot be law-abiding, with schools and respect for teachers, and at the same time, the strong murder the weak, students kill students from other schools. Basically, the author just started writing just another cultivation novel. The teachers are just murdering masters and the schools are sects. And everyone is a backstabbing asshole. The worst is the MC since the author is doing his best to keep the MC on moral high ground, but actions speak louder than words. He is the same as everyone else. A pathetic murderer.

    Interesting, although the sentences could be more fluid. Some editing would help. As for the content. For someone so greedy that even gods (or whatever) noticed, the descriptions sound more like an average rich man. Probably because nothing specific was mentioned. Maybe an addition like his children didn't love him, but what should he expect since each had a different mother, half of whom he discarded as superfluous extras while the other half only got the minimum a millionaire's spawn should have. From his point of view, they were unnecessary expenses on HIS resources. And now He was a superfluous timekeeper on the inheritance. Unfortunately, there was no way to bury everything he had with him, as some Farron. Since from his point of view, everything he had should be his, even in death. No one had a right to inherit his greed. But even if he hid all his wealth, someone would find it within 24 hours of his death. The obstacle of technology. Or something like that. Greed is greed. Greed worthy of the attention of a supernatural being should be even more explosive. Right now he sounds like an old fart who was big in the past, but now a nobody. Look at "Saw" movies. The old guy, old and sick, near death, showed the world his greed to control death and life. Besides, what's up with the old lady who turns into a young, beautiful woman? From her dialogs, it appears that she dislikes him. And yet she flaunts her breasts to please him? "Under her pointy black hat was an alluring beauty that Sakim himself found his heart wanting to jump out from his chest. " Strange. Even if that was her true appearance, she would have no reason to show it. The scene was like, look, I am not old, I am good looking for you to have wet dreams, he he he.... She transformed from an unknown powerful being with unknown motivations to... To a woman sent by someone else powerful to warm the bed of a potential client. Now she is worth no more than her bo0bs.

    Read 7 chapters. For someone who dies because of wishing to see his sister, she hadn't been mentioned once in his thoughts. Quote: "He usually would not go this route because it led through an enemy gang's turf but his desire to see his sister clouded his judgement. " "He knew it was wrong but it was the only way he could keep his family fed and it offered a semblance of protection in their violence filled neighborhood." It would seem that the MC turned into "What past? I have no past." This basically made the beginning pointless. The novel might as well have started with the demons right away. Because the cornerstones of what made MC at the beginning, him valuing family and bearing responsibility, are jettisoned right after, turning him into an empty state character who, as he quips after the fact he is leveling his following skill. Quote: "Azemo kept leveling his only skill as he silently followed Zaebos, he would probably be a max level follower in no time." Also, quote: "We summoned you eight to become generals in the war against humanity. " After hearing the demon say, that MC will have to kill his mom and sister since they are humans, his next shown thought is... Quote: "'This room is really cozy.' " Yeah, zero reaction. MC is an empty puppet. Which makes demons in return hollow shells. Demons against Humans are morality war between good and evil. There can't be good or evil if the MC is an empty shell of a character who simply reacts after hearing all this. "'This room is really cozy.' " .... .. . Well, at least the grammar here is fine and well written in places. The sentences flow smoothly. Which actually just dragged me down more. Empty shell MC is usually found in authors with poor grammar and jumpy sentences that are smooth as sandpaper. In the end I feel disappointed.

    Due to the dumbing-down of everyone to make MC intelligent, MC is basically a king of Monkeys. His smartness is... reading beforehand about the dungeon - something almost no one seems to do. His cleverness is... not being cocky. As typical in superpower stories, my power is rank [insert higher than lowest], therefore I'll be cocky as eff, and I'll march into unknown dangers thinking everyone is beneath me. And then regret it and MC will come in to save the day. His cleverness is not shown in battle, using tricks, imagination, clever tactics. He fights with a knife pointed forward and later with a flame pointed forward. Okay, he uses the most basic game tactic of the boss weak point... the monster's mouth... no one would have figured out that the monster's weak point is its mouth/sarcasm And of course, the only woman who has more than one line about her wants to get into MC pants after she finds out how great he really is. Quote from a chapter: "Wendy, who at that moment was trying to stop the bite wound of the girl who had flattered Harry, couldn't stop spying in Noah's direction. "He... That flame of his does a lot of damage to the boss; he's definitely not just a blessed Rank F... Damn Amy, if you hadn't..." Yes, as the battle goes on, as they may die, as she heals her best friend's torn open bloody wound, she laments that her friend prevented previously her from flirting with the MC before. This BTW was mentioned a few times before, this particular scene just further highlighted how braindead it sounds. As for Lucifer... Right now it's just being used as a fancy edgy name. No symbolism or deeper thinking found so far. After all, only humans can sin, but for some reason burning random rats works. I'd liked to see a restriction on the power that only sinful human burning can upgrade the skill. That would give the upgrade a more monumental feel. Now it feels like he gets double exp. Kill first, then burn. Nothing fun at all. The Vampire system at least tackles it with needing different humans and second fang dips didn't count. This story's MC can farm all the "sinful" (how are they sinful??) rats. As it is now, this novel is a barebone basic system/powers/dungeon novel. The characters are cardboard cutouts. The powers are basic and uninteresting. Most shown are the story basic cookies cutouts Fire, Ice, and Healing. And they are used by pointing hands and shooting... They aren't described interestingly.

    I have a question. Why does Noah, who supposedly used his brains to survive, sneaks around with only a knife? No traps, no decoys, no lures, no other clever ways to fight. He simply fought the same way others did. The best way to compare it is that he thinks he's a wizard, when in reality he's a rogue who fights like a warrior, without rogue tricks. He sneaks, finds a single rat, and then fights like everyone else with a knife... No dirty or imaginative tricks or anything to show that he really survived because of his intelligence. Right now he appears smart just because everyone else is dumbed down. So what if they have powers, if 50% of people die in the first few years, I would not put my ass on the line just to feel cocky. Besides, even if they did have teenager braindead syndrome, their parents would kick their asses in shape. It almost seems like the people of the world do not care if their kids die. The writers had surrounded MC with stupid, unreal teenagers just to make him seem smarter and more *****. At this point, our world has more safety precautions when climbing mountains than in that world have when dungeon diving. Author, just because MC is the smartest person among dumb people, doesn't make us readers think MC is smart. It only makes MC a king of monkeys.
