I'm reading the raw currently I'm at chapter 77 and I have bad news... I guess they will also cut one chapter at half like the other novel "Grandson of the Holy Emperor is a necromancer." and the good news is the novel is really great and you won't be disappointed hope so..


The same vibe as 'I Really Am Not The Lord of Demon'


This is a MTL-tier translation of a novel that is based pretty much exclusively on misunderstanding humor and a braindead MC. Not worth reading.


iam coming to support this novels hahahahaahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha


Idk, I like the idea of the book. However, I just find it really annoying that random ass people just come up to his place and take stuff etc etc. Like idk it's like these people do nothing and just take things from his place... I just find this so fcking annoying. For me, the mc HAS to have some self-respect about himself. There is being kind and then there is grovelling to others, letting them walk all over you etc. This is what the mc is in this book and it is something I cannot stand reading about. Like I don't mind that people come to his place, maybe get to look at stuff etc but to actively take things without even doing anything? That's over the line, there's a difference to looking around admiring compared to taking things. It's like inviting someone to your house and them just taking things from it... Nah, can't stand that. the mc also has to have certain self-respect, some confidence about that he lacks. Hope this makes sense? Just something I want to read about when reading so yeah. My prefrence rly


Trash translation. Average repetitive novel. Shameless copying if names and elements from other novels. CN authors remind me of authors during the Shakespeare Era when copyright didn’t exist and authors would just steal content from each each other.


The whole point of this novel is that the mc is OP but he doesn't know it and thinks that he is weak because he didn't cultivate/learn combat arts, while everybody else is afraid of or respectful to him because he can freely use the power of 'rules'. Nobody mentions him being OP while in his presence because they think he wants to experience the life of a mortal, thus develops the misunderstanding that the whole novel is based on.


I will first tell you that this novel has high comedic element , is about a guy who fells that he is ordinary person but the people around him don't think so. Con: 1: upto chapter300 no clear story plot goal 2: repeative scenario (upto chapter 200) after that it has unique linear growth in story 3: high content about food (pro for food lover) Pros: 1: comedy 2: overpowered MC but not too undesirable and plot is not to stupid 3: low arrogant character 4: good story baground and world plotting 5: smooth transition in plot with no goal to a definite goal It's too funny and good story so do try

Reveal spoiler


This is the type of novel that's entertaining at first. After a while, it does become...(very) repetitive. Why do I say this? It's because of the novel's structure. This novel goes like this: misunderstanding 1 - misunderstanding 2 - misunderstanding 3 - misunderstanding 4 - misunderstanding 5 and so on. At this moment when I'm writing this review, it's been happening for 480 chapters already. What becomes equally tiring after a while is the protagonist, there's no character growth or development at all. He is the exact same in chapter 1 as is he is in chapter 480. If that isn't enough the supporting cast always react to the incidents in the same way. Every single time! I would say this novel is entertaining (4 stars overall) for the first 150 chapters. If you go beyond then you'll grow both bored, and upset with this novel's shortcomings.


First of all, this trial read batch's translation is quite sh*t. At least three out of five that I had read have a lot of bad phrasings and weird translations, some of them felt like a direct translation without considering the context. Now, on to this novel. This is one of those junk food webnovels, the kind that you would read without turning your brain on. If you're fine with that, try this out. Otherwise, stay clear. The premise itself is fine, I personally like that kind of stuff. The MC is also not too bad, if you discount his lack of awareness. But, the rest is just "meh". I like misunderstanding, but the one in here felt cheap. There are a lot of "Nani?!" and "Sasuga" moments. Characters will be surprised at everything that the MC did : -MC went to the toilet and having a bad case of diarrhea -Others : "Is this the symphony of heaven!?" That didn't happened, mind you, but you get the idea. The MC is a "normal" person that couldn't feel even the faintest of qi energy, so he didn't realise the true capabilities of the stuffs that he had kept and the things that he had done. This is the main source of the misunderstanding. The other characters will try to read too much into his every words and actions. Like many cn webnovels, this become a cycle of events that keep being repeated over and over. Most of the side characters become too obsessed with the MC, coming to his house or following him around. Even the King, the Queen, and the Princess of the kingdom that the MC live in, visit him together without any bodyguard or subordinate. Who took care of the kingdom? The king's minister? "Bah, who the f*ck cares? You read this just for the characters' reaction to the MC, right?", the author probably. I can only stomach this up to chapter 32, perhaps your resistance towards these kind of stuffs is higher. So, I'll just leave here. While junk food stories aren't necessarily bad (They have aid me greatly during my dire period of the Great Diarrhea), I wouldn't recommend you to read too much of them. Best case scenario, you'll just lose a few braincells.


I've read the raws up to 400+ch and I can say that this is a good one. In this one, the MC is pseudo-op. That means that, the MC himself doesn't have godlike powers, but everyone around him thinks so. In addition, everything in the MC's house are artifacts that even immortals will fight for, which basically solidifies his position as a bigshot in the eyes of others. But the MC himself doesn't think that they are artifacts; he thinks that they only ordinary things, which led him to give away most of his stuff. Also, if you don't like the fact that the MC is powerless, don't worry. In the 200-350 chapter mark, he'll gain something so OP that basically no one can touch him, literally and metaphorically. All in all, it's a fun and relaxing read. However, if you don't like repetitive stuff, then I advice you to stay away from this novel. The amount of repeating scenes in this novel is so many that I can't even count it.


Can anyone who has read this tell me if mc realizes that he has such powers? Or does he remain ignorant throughout the novel? Cuz i have a feeling its the later


In my opinion this is not a fanciful and great story written by a wordsmith that has been practicing their craft for years... That being said, this type of novel is one of the reasons I fell in love with webnovels. Outlandish abilities, an overpowered main character, absurd reasoning that almost makes sense, and a pattern that makes you want to come back for more. As I said, this is by no means a 5 star novel but I will pick it for the charm of the story over any other story being voted on at the moment. thanks for reading my personal opinion and good luck EXP SECT!!

It is a good read for relaxing and just enjoying the story of how silly the mc is and the misunderstandings the translation is just ok not really good but not the worst maybe because it is a trail read that they did not bother to really translate it that good after all they do not know if it really is picked so why bother that much with the translation maybe after it is picked the translation will go up who knows :D
