dear everyone, thanks so much for your attention on the story. I couldn't agree with some comments more that the story was "childish". Most readers of its Chinese version are girls in middle school. That may explain why the girls in the story are of a rectilinear thinking style. In my opinion, they are flat on the paper, with only one or two features at most. So, if you want to read a story of mature way of thinking or a story with deep thoughts, you will be disappointed. In fact, it's quite a bucket of pop corn for me in leisure time. The author indeed had studied on certain subjects. If you live in China, you will find some interesting points everywhere, especially in the following chapters. Maybe after one month you could return to the story, I promise you will find something interesting by then. But I can't make the spoiler now. haha! And, some words about the way in which MC ****** money. Young foreigners may have no idea that after 1995 till now, China was the heaven of adventurers. Since MC lived in the era for the second time, it's natural for him to choose certain way to earn money (you may find them in the following chapters). He is only an ordinary man of mechanical deparment, who couldn't remember so many songs or famous articles. Even if he could, considering the protection of copyright in China... When I was translating the work, I was so sorry about the oppotunities to make fortune in the story, for I missed them all! THEY ARE THE REALISTIC WAY TO MAKE MONEY IN CHINA AT THAT TIMES! If I was reborn like MC, I'll do in the same way. It will be the ******st and quickest for ordinary person, who never prepared for his/her rebirth. Anyway, thanks so much for your patience. Readers choose stories and stories choose readers. It's a mutural process. If you give the story up, best wishes for you and looking forward to meeting you in another story. :)
Hmm... Although the first few chapters are kinda hard to swallow for me (i lost interest at first and my sis had to do a lot of convincing for me to continue with it since she said it turned out good soon) after the BIG hurdle of accepting the irony between idiocy and intelligence of the MC it became an ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. The MC is absolutely funny and there are no down moments. He's nerdy yet cool and silly yet smart. Most especially, he is faithful to the bones to his only love interest in the novel. The shiny life of a star and the normal everyday life of a student is well-balanced, very refreshingly mixed in the novel, none of that tiring monotonous flow. The translators are doing a perfect job both with translation quality and update stability. Still, i soooo love the novel that i just can't get enough. So if you're looking for a light read that makes you forget your worries then this is for you.
I reached around chap 500+, purely because I'm a sucker to this kind of genre. Compared to Superstars of Tomorrow and IRAS, this novel is severely lacking. PROS: It's hard to think of one. The story is in between below average and average... hmmm yup there's nothing stunning about this novel. However, if you have nothing to read and waiting for updates then this might do the trick. Also around chapter 300, the MC will go to USA, not really a spoiler, just to tell you guys that it will be more relatable because Western works will be used not just Chinese literatures, films and celebrities that we barely know. CONS: Most cons were stated already. The worst thing for me is the story telling. It's practically reading a log or a diary, most chapters just states what did the MC have done that day. The romance is really bad, it has potential at first but the author botched it. The story has no depth along with the characters. Everyone is so shallow and thought of nothing aside MCs looks. There are few good chapters, most of them were dull and just about the MC eating over and over again. The fact that the MC's eating is more detailed than him doing his job or his lovelife is the most frustrating part of this novel. I finally dropped this novel, I tried it a lot of times but just I'm about to drop it, things get interesting. It's like the walking dead prior to the latest season.
Alright, the score is pretty low, but it's reasonable... I think. anyway. Translation quality is OK, but could be better. the phrasing is quite bad to be honest. If the author wrote it like it's translated, then this must be their debut work, because it feels really... I really don't know how to say it, without ****** people interpret what I've said in a wrongly. but, the ******st analogy? emmm.... Childish, but planned. or is very innocent in a way, but at least the story it self seems to have been planned ahead properly. The MC himself, is quite childish also, or even quite innocent. it's like a man was put in the body of a child, and the childishness seeped in, and erased the *****, but left the memories of the future. Also, things seem to go rather well for this MC, but it's strange. I honestly have no interpretation of why I think this series has a strange flow, but I have this weird feeling as I read it. not a bad feeling mind you. World background... Again, I must say, 'honestly', the world isn't as of yet too far thought out, but the actual 'world' around the character seems to be developing, like, housing market, stocks and so on... oh, and computer development. I wish this MC could think of smart things to do with the internet, it really wouldn't be to hard to make a website worth money around that time, it would just take a bit of development, and financial stability. but, as long as he invented YouTube, he'd be fine. I think it isn't banned in China, so it should be fine... And my final conclusion to my thoughts about this story... Read it if you wanna, It's not the best, but it has some interest elements to it. So if your here for lighthearted rebirth or should we say, revert to an alternate time line, 18 years before, where the MC isn't a genius, but get's a better body and memory right off the bat as a consolation prize, but doesn't know how to truly capitalize on his future knowledge, however, does in fact know how to make Some use of the new body. My last thing to say is: The first chapter is BS, it almost makes no sense except TRYING to explain to you, the MC was all of a sudden, reborn for no apparent reason. Apparently a different, and even better body/memory. However, it doesn't really explain, If he was suddenly reborn, or if he was reborn for quite some time, and this is likely the translator/editors fault for confusing me. and I must point out, that the Author really wanted to get the character out of high-school, but still give the character SOME very minor Introduction and slightly developing the world background. and to finish off what I'm saying... the Story is very fkn high paced, has a very small character development phase, but as I said at the start, I'm pretty sure this is the authors debut piece, or best work at the time of release... if not, then I truly feel sorry for this author, being able to write, but is inadequate in their understanding of the human psyche, emotions, rational and thus creating an inferior product, that is unworthy of their actually writing talents."
The MC reincarnates into a time where he can make everything happen again. He doesn't gain anything unlike MC's from other novels which make use of their past. He makes use of his pretty face to model and to get girls. Throughout the novel, he finds love randomly and there's close to no development when it comes to relationships. MC is way too random when it comes to his personality. The characters are also very vague and only apparent when it comes to being in touch with the MC. The story is bound to be very repetitive as he repeats the process over and over again. Randomly Meets Woman-> Falls in "love" -> They get together-> Woman is then dropped by author.
This story can be considered as the typical reincarcation story having an mc that is so OP. But what I like of this story, is that although the mc interacts with a lot of female characters, he is loyal to one woman (no to harem for me). Also, even though he is so OP, I love how the author inserted "human-like" to his character. Despite being seen as an OP mc, he is still very practical and hard-working.
I thought this gem was underrated. Very mellow, slow paced, and REALISTIC portrayal of life in the 1990s-2000, albeit embellished by the MC's perfect looks. Not much of a plot but it doesn't need one: it's just about a guy's college life and work along the way, his pursuit of his girlfriend, his advancement of his business-minded career, and his modeling career. Very enjoyable read and there are even food descriptions!
Oh my heart.... It's beating to fast... In the beginning when I read the synopsis is was like uh... Not interested. But prove me wrong.. I read till I felt asleep then woke up the next day dreaming about the story n immediately started reading again. Now can't wait for the next chapter.... Love it. It's fun but most of all, the the sincerity of the character towards it other counterpart make it all the Worth while.
The best thing in this novel is the most mundane moments. i.e. him getting a girlfriend, their dating days, his college life, eating food with friends. Yes, this story is not about how the loser turn into a prince charming. It's about how the loser lived his life when he turned into price charming and that story may be boring but its incredibly real.
I liked this story, it was a smooth read and although there were ups and downs in the story I never felt that I should just stop reading or anything so, the ending wasn't rushed and it also leaves scope for a follow through sequel of the story if the writer wishes to write it. I would definitely recommend this to readers who are here to relax, enjoy and just enjoy the pace of the story.
