I'm on Chapter 295. This story still amuses me. It is fun to see the ups and downs of the plethora of characters, and wonder what are the inner workings of the so called Holy Church that works with some kind of Lovecraftian eldritch horror.
I'm at chapter 132, for the last 40 chapters I've had the feeling that this skips around a lot. I'd expect with this type of stories to have some reactions after the mc does something interesting, instead it's him setting something else up. this happens consistently.
tldr: good idea, *******ish execution
Finally some good novel to read. A novel without stupidly arrogant villains with excessive giving face complex. MC is not dense and knows how to play his cards right. I refreshing isekai that does not focus on MC just getting OP everytime he breathes. Really like the references he makes. A recommend read.
This was pretty refreshing novel for me related to world developtment which is nothing new to me, but the feel to this compare to the rest has a different flare to it as how they directly went introducing movies early and entering information age as much as possible through magic means living in another world.
Read 6 chapters and I can't go on. The story if full of plotholes just to further the story, like how the mc has selective memory about the host body (he can't remember anything that is necessary for his plans [the host body spent most of his time on this], while he can remember useless things [the host body basically did once or twice]) or the fact that the demon royal family's house has no protection about intruders (a weak human mage can teleport inside just as the mc needs a human mage because he forgot necessary things).
La historia en si no es la gran cosa, el desarrollo de personajes existe pero siempre es basado en que el crecimiento del personaje hara que se relacione con el prota y se vuelva su alidado.
En fin, esta es una novela para pasar el tiempo no destaca en nada pero tampoco se queda corta. Te aseguro que brindara un buen momento de lectura
My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honor remains
The arrow has left the bow of the goddess
My soul, corrupted by vengeance
Hath endured torment, to find the end of the journey
In my own salvation
And your eternal slumber
Legend shall speak
Of sacrifice at world's end
The wind sails over the water's surface
Quietly, but surely
I must say, for a book that finds its basis in recreating movies from our plane of existence in a magically modified world it does a splendid job of creating memorable characters. Although I wish there was slightly more world building and character development for some of Joshua’s actors and his assistant, Ciri, it’s not to the point of being detrimental to the story. The whole novel is a little slow but it delivers a wholesome and honestly quite invigorating show of the history of the technological entertainment industry (obviously in a relatively brief fashion, as his Chaos Demon lifespan is not very long). As other reviews and comments have put it, “it’s like walking down memory lane,” where each of us, whether we were exposed to the medium or not, can enjoy the highlights of humanity’s film (and eventually gaming) culture. None of the characters presented are annoying, but instead quite lovable with their flawed natures. The particular developments with the Deceiver Pluk, the Elves and the World Trees, and the Inquisition (Which also involves the Demons) are by far the most enjoyable passages I’ve perused in a long time. While not high octane, the action is sufficient to keep the reader engaged and satisfied, not desiring more as they realize that action and violence isn’t the point of this book. In fact, the propagation of movies, games, and the internet has acted as a centripetal force, as well as a useful tool for the human nation Joshua is currently residing in. I wholeheartedly trust that bringing the best parts of humanity’s culture will ultimately unite the opposing sides of the magical world, providing a sense of inclusivity and understanding unmatched by any previous creation. The world, the characters, and the plot amalgamate into an enjoyable, slow-paced read. There is no info-dumping or a high reading level requirement, just a rudimentary knowledge of (primarily) film and (secondarily) gaming history. 5 stars for most categories and a 4-4.5 stars the rest!
Highly recommendable. I enjoyed this novel and many will too, although I would compare this novel to many others, the concept is quite... good? IRAS is a good example, so much novels are compared to that godfather of chinese plagiarism.
Absolutely amazing, although there are some similarities to the story 'Black Tech Internet Cafe System' what differs is purpose. The author clearly highlights a purpose for all of the MC's actions. The MC does not introduce something from earth simply because, but introduces an item or concept to further his goal. It's not a new concept but a fresh and unique take on what it means to introduce modern earthly culture to fantasy.
