This is perhaps the most awkward rating I have and would give. While I have given it 5 stars, at the same time did not enjoy it as much as you might think. The reason for that could be best summarized as, this seems more like an english-book inspired take on cultivation/anime/iseki/game genre. It reads very well and more close to a superpower book. In my opinion. However, I think it lacks a certain culture and style that most novel do have here. Does it make it bad, no. But it does lack a certain flavour which is great in these kinds of novel, yes. That is not enough to make me rate badly. So this is one of the best books i do not enjoy. I still like it tho.
NGL the story is still good, but to me kinda lost its original tempo, it was a one of those that that everyone on the MC's side got a decent ending, but now it seems less and less like that, more like a drama coming up with meh endings of side characters. I prefer the Claus/plot at the beginning of the story compared to this. I feel like that to make it seem more believable, the story kinda lost its flavour. Me personally when i accept immortals and elves and all, I accept other unlikely situations. I had stockpiled some chapters and when reading it, I felt that this was a different story or author. When reading the new stuff, it is still good but not the OG Fourth Prince.
Well a decent story, the only thing i found with the writing is the lack of comma usage the first few chapters, it gets better after. Everything else makes sense, but I think I will stop here. The main reason being the uncertainty of Harem. I like book that are harem and go into without care, and I also like other books that completely avoid it and I know what to expect. The books that gave side characters harem and/or uncertain about the harem is what I never enjoy. I don't understand what attracts people to a huge caste of potential lovers, but nothing happens and they are pushed to side characters at one time or another. Based on the comments I think this will have a bit both things I hate, so i am out.
OK, I get what you are saying, but if that was the case he should be a bit more mature / scheming / and attempt to at least figure out who to stay away from. As a person who had experienced many lives there should at-least be acknowledgement of the plot against him and a reaction even if it is "this is too childish for me." or "I cant deal with this now." But also the many life of experiences should have given him a neutral characteristic and not "good-guy trope." It is still quite good, just lacking something for me. I plan to give it another go sometime and this is just my opinion, take it with a grain of salt.
I have read the first 30 chapter and can say that it has good writing quality and stability of updates. The story development and character design isn't really for me. While it is decent, I find it rather too generic (good guy trope) and I found his reincarnation rather useless, maybe there will be a reason for that later but for now, all I see is a somewhat obedient little boy in the MC. He had merged with the previous soul, yet there is no fear, or worry, or even acknowledgement that he was killed. Where is the caution, he goes around worrying about his mother, yet why is that? He just came into this world and the memories doesn't seem to affect him, can you generate affection quickly for someone this quickly? If he does have memory of his life as prince then why is there no fear or even a thought about his murder. What is the reason that he wants to get strong? Is it revenge, to protect his loved ones, I still have not found a reason for him or the story. I see no tension or reason to follow the story, his sister seems far more interesting. Usually the environment of fighting for thrones make the characters mature, yet the MC seems to lack that. While the story seems to check most boxes I really did not get an interest in following the MC's story. His origin not really that interesting, his circumstance he seem to not care, his cheat and bloodline a bit generic. I expected more then this from Invincible Corruption Manual. Writing Quality - 5 Stability of Updates - 5 Story Development - 3 Character Design - 3 World Background - 4 The total score - 4
A bit disappointed at the reveal, all this time Rina was not interested about her, yet she asked now, it seems unlikely, travelling with an almost dead woman for days and you ask about her condition now, when the elder is spying one you, too much coincidences. This is the opposite of extreme plot armour. The only thing that this makes me understand/feel is that that mother in law is not trust-able, he clearly told her to not say it and she knows MC and Rina are close, so if he wanted to then he would told Rina about it. Knowing this, she still reveal the secret makes her very untrustable. What I got from this chapter - Rina does not care about other people. Mother in law should not be trusted with any secret.
I hope the story speeds up just a bit. I don't dislike it but I saved myself around 30 chapters and they did some shopping. The story has the lady that bought the charm from him, the the family that found him when he arrived, his parents, the building company, the person at school after him, now the old childhood sweet heart and the disciples from the other world, the cultivator lady at mall. Also dealing with the couple of idiots from the mall. To get to all the stuff an new stuff that will pop up, a bit faster pace will be better. PS this my suggestion, while I have no problem with the current pace, I think it will take a very long time before any of the bigger plots actually come to play, so I made the suggestion.
