Synopsis

"What's it like becoming a vampire?" When Xiang Kun first sees this question on Quora, he treats the answers as nothing more than fantasy stories. Back then, he naturally never expected that it didn't take long before he had the qualifications to truly answer this question. After he recently losing his job, Xiang Kun experiences a series of inexplicable physical and mental changes—unable to eat or drink anything other than plain water, craving for blood, shedding a layer of his skin like a snake, staying awake for days before falling fast asleep for 30 hours, feeling uncomfortable staying in the sun... He has definitely transformed into a different person, or, is he even still a human? Driven by his determination to seek the truth, Xiang Kun embarks on a dangerous yet exciting journey to understand his identity and powers. Nevertheless, to his surprise, he seems to be the first person ever who has undergone those transformations... Is it his destiny? Why is he the chosen one? At the start, Xiang Kun doesn’t have the answers. But he refuses to give up searching. During his self-exploration, Xiang Kun is taken by surprise by the positive effects of the changes to his body. Realizing that he can train certain parts of his body to carry out extraordinary functions, he continuously pushes his limits from building his muscle mass to enhancing his sense of smell and hearing. These “special powers” enable him to solve crimes and assist others in need. Until one day, he discovers something that gives him a lead to the cause of the changes in his body... Can Xiang Kun uncover the truth and figure out what exactly happened to him? Will he trust anyone with his secret, or face all the challenges alone? Many mysteries and uncertainties await him.

Alright, so far, this story has been a great read. The translation quality is great, and I don't really get confused by any strange phrases like you might see in some translations. Stability of Updates is not really applicable, so I'm keeping it at 5 for the rating's sake. The story development feels nice and well-paced. The MC discovers new things about himself in a natural manner, and his relationships with the people around him also develop well. The character design is just... magnifique! Finally, an MC who isn't completely brain-dead! This guy actually thinks about the possible consequences of his actions, has flaws, works to fix said flaws and, most importantly, actually learns from his mistakes! He feels like a real person instead of a caricature! For the world background, considering this is still only at chapter 60 because of the trial read, I'd say that it's well-developed. Anything relevant to the story gets explored pretty well, while anything unrelated gets a quick explanation before the story moves on. It's not exactly the most detailed and intricate world ever, but it's nice and simple and doesn't detract from the story. Overall, solid 5/5, hoping this gets picked up!

Modern time, mc's 30 year old and discovers that he gained abnormal activities in his life, like vomiting after eating and increasingly better eyesight. - UNLIKE most mc's who will immediately come on the conclusion that they changed race, the mc actually thinks on why he transformed and why is he getting stronger. - He does research on his own body and looks up on internet. Story development in the first 54 chapters are related to mc researching his own body changes while also with some story here and there like for example a robber and a supernatural event. - Yes, of course the novel can't go further without anything to write about, so MC isn't the only one with the abilities he has. But for now, I say he's the only human with the 'mutations'. And yes, he drinks blood for nutritions and energy. - There's one potential female lead, but I dunno if it's gonna be harem - Advanced readers, please reply if you know! - Translation Quality: Noice - 5* SoU: Trial read - 5* Story development: Could be better, but not bad in it's own right - 4.5* Character design: Good - 5* World Background: only 60 chapters, but it's has some mystery at the end so - 5*

I read up to the latest chapter and have to say this story is painfully slow. after reading my vampire system I was looking to quench my thirst for more vampire stuff but this is not it. its seems webnovel are trying to go off the hype of vampire stuff It's a shame because based on what some reviews said j thought it would be a good read.

Here's an updated review copy and pasted from my forum post to persuade others to read this: Plot summary: Xiang Kun is a 30 year old programmer who recently lost his job because his company went bankrupt. After a long night of drinking, he blacks out and wakes up 2 days later in his apartment feeling... different. After visiting the hospital and determining he's fine, a weird series of events start to happen. First his all his teeth come out, and brand new ones start to grow back in their place, all his hair falls out, and all his skin peels off as though he's a snake going through shedding. He also determines that he is slightly stronger, and has better senses, and he no longer craves food. In fact, he vomits whenever he tries to eat. He's worried a lot at first, and thinks he's contracted a serious illness, but I'm all sure us readers know; he's become a vampire. Things I like about the novel: The MC is very intelligent. As soon as the changes start to happen to him, he starts logging every single change, whether its obvious things like how far he can see/hear, experimenting to see what foods he can stomach more, even though in the end they still make him vomit, to his weight, his mental stability, and his sleeping patterns. He even sets up cameras to record himself and save for his log of experimentation, like recording himself drinking blood, cutting himself to see if he regenerates, and sometimes recording himself sleeping to record his own sleeping habits. He goes through his whole change very scientifically, and I really enjoy it as this isn't something you see often in novels. All the characters, while not fully realistically fleshed out; they are a lot better developed than most other novels. There hasn't been one 'young arrogant master' or some d*uche trying to make trouble with him yet, although he has stopped a knife waving psycho. Who i would assume to be the female lead, while we haven't seen a lot of her yet, I feel like she's developed well and funny as well since she nicknames the MC 'saitama' due to the fact that MC is super strong and is bald. While I don't know if there will be more 'vampirical' humans besides the MC, there has been one other vampirical creature that the MC has killed and drank the blood of to grow stronger, so im interested as to where the plot will develop and how the mystery of how the MC became a vampire will get solved.

I wanted to believe those who gave 4-5 stars and said that the novel has no cliché, but they are lying... First of all, the romance is terribly forced. He clearly showed that he was not interested but the woman started to think "How come is he not interested in me? I had a lot of people asking me out but I never accepted anyone because I never found the right person, but why is he not interested in me? Is he gay?" (So fucking egoistic and self-centered already) Then she asked him for a date while hiking, which the MC clearly didnt want to go and had other things to do, but, he is the type that is not able to say "No" (cause he is an idiot) and so he agreed and said yes, because, in his words: "it was impossible to refuse". NO, it was easy, just say no! You are not interested in her, you dont have to agree to what she wants to do! Just say no politely and say you are not interested. This romance is the most forcefull cliché **** I have seen, and it is shoved in our faces just after barely 10 chapters. You can imagine how the story is gonna play it out. Then there is the fact of the cliché couple attacked by a man with a knife and the MC to rescue (an extremely rare occurance to even ever witness such a thing in the middle of the day with so many people around, but that casually happened outside his house right after becoming a vampire), and instead of stopping or tackling the man from behind he kick him and punch his face even when he already knows that his strength is absurd. He could have easily blocked him from behind but he had to punch and kick him to act cool tho, otherwise he wouldnt look cool enough, he has to look like a Hero because of plot of course. For everything, the romance and the way the plot moves forward COMPLETELY drag the whole novel down. Especially the annoying and cliché romance. And judging by how early and HOW MUCH of it was already showed, it is going to be a pretty major part of the novel that is going to be completely ****. If not even a major part of the way the plot is going to be driven forward. This time I learned to never trust a Chinese's novel if it contains any type of romance, they just can't seem do it right, with some rare exceptions. This is probably why House of Horrors, Lord of Mysteries, Reverend Insanity and others.. are so high quality and good, apart from all the good things they already have, they have zero romance to bring them down.

If you are looking for a suddenly OP MC, this is not it. However, if you want an actual well developed story with actual logical MC then this is for you. Our MC suddenly wakes and discovers he can't eat food. It is a logical premise as the MC grows and learns more about his condition as a vampire. The story pacing is decent and slowly builds introducing the supernatural. Overall a recommended read.

This was one of the promising story that I have read, Although the novel have a slow character development it was able to clearly show the MC's characteristics and how he reacts in his situation. It was a waste for it not to be chosen.

This is for anyone who likes Vampire stuff and hate how "My vampire system" is written because as we all know its incredibly poor as a novel, I have seen people here saying its too slow for their taste, that's coming from the same people who likes the slowest vampire novel on this site, I mean 170 chapters and still not even half the school arc? Fucking hypocrites. I have seen others says its too cliché for their taste, again that's coming from the same people who likes the most cliché novel on this website (source : the author), but hey at least this Main character is not dense as f*ck or too fucking coward to do something like drinking/eating (whatever the f*ck you want to call it) blood to survive in multi dimensional war between races where they will die if they don't get stronger, fucking stupid little sh*t.
