Well I'm the author, so I have to give it 5 stars, but here are some reasons why you should as well.
1. You like face slapping? There will be plenty of that!
2. You like dark comedy? This novel's dark enough that I can't even see the light switch in front of me.
3. You like cultivation? Well join an adventure where each step will be a slow climb.
4. You like systems? I got all the system you can want, you'll seriously get sick of it.
If that didn't convince you, then maybe this will, cute girls...
Dollar store version of astral pet store. 😂😂😂😂😂[img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp][img=exp]
Too similar to Astral Pet Store but I didn't mind it. One thing that bothers me though is he neglects his family too much and relies on plot armor to keep them safe. He could have done a lot more to make them stronger but let's them get taken away because he is too cautious when technically his employees and pets can overpower anyone. Author can just write no harm will befall the mom and sister until his dad is strong enough to help free them but any filial son will not take the risk.
I'm sorry to give such a low rating but the author doesn't know what to write.
I don't mean grammar, I'm not English and I can understand history very well.
He writes without thinking about future or previous chapters, he focuses only on the current story arc.
Take for example when the Lin family is kidnapped: The parents are weak and the protagonist has to bow, huh no, plot twist, they are actually much stronger than they show! This is revealed in the future, but then why did the father allow his family to be kidnapped?
But it doesn't matter, it's a bad thing but it didn't bring this to the drop, but the exact same thing happens shortly after (shortly after the parents reveal their power), even worse than in the beginning.
The protagonist does nothing when his mother and sister are taken away in front of him, despite the fact that the enemy has said he wants them both, making it clear what he wants the two women ...
I continued reading to find out the motivation, which marked the drop of the series:
"Oh no, because if you intervene, your father will have a block, it doesn't matter if your sister and your mother are violated." (The phrase is not quite like that, but the gist is this. We know that nothing will happen, since the author is not faithful to what he writes and invents things to create plot twists that break the plot).
This is why I dropped, but there are a lot of smaller errors, which don't make the story understand.
Like the conflict of the two souls within the protagonist, which was not transmitted at all. Conflict? Nothing ever happened between the two souls, it's just a stretch for the growth of the protagonist.
The relationships of the characters that come out of nowhere.
The fact that the protagonist loves animals (even when he was on earth, written as someone who defended and saved animals), and then makes them die only because they can be brought to life.
In short, there are many errors of writing (not English).
Besides this is an unoriginal story, I have never read astral pet shop or what it's called, so I don't judge the beginning. I just say that he does not quote but copies many things, such as the character of Momonga (not a quote), the tribulations of the sky / lightning, the examination of the tamers which is identical to two other stories (theory to a very famous one, and practical punching beasts to improve their strength, which you should have already read in another fairly famous story).
In short, I do not recommend the story.
The rating is not a precise star, a little more (1,8), since it has some nice chapters, but it is not enough for the two stars. I struggled to read up to chapter 300+, as I didn't want to drop until I figured things out, but that chapter is pretty awful.
This novel prominently features animal abuse in a way that doesn't make it seem light hearted or as a joke. The pets actually get stronger after getting traumatized, without discussing any potential negative effects of physical abuse. The story seems rather shallow and based on other similar novels, with random decisions and plot points thrown in so that the author can get to the ending they want, but they clearly don't realize that the story is the line that happens in between rather than the points it connects to.
This story's beginning has lots of similarities to other novels like Astral Pet Store, sharing lots of key plot points, but it surprisingly gets better. Besides the obviously plagiarized start, the story is actually well written and broke away from the plagiarism which turned me off in the first few chapters. The author has actually made the story his own, making it a good read if you have nothing to do, and the author writes well, matching some of the best novels on the site. If you can bear through the first few chapters, this book is worth reading and should absolutely be given a shot.
I would say something great but thats not needed, this writer has written a book to truly learn from even with the small grammar issues and some small work breakages.
one can truly admire the world built upon these words.
The overall story is great 👍 .
I will not lie I kinda cringe since some of the stories plot and some characters is kinda same with Astral. But I still read this novel since the story is more progressive than the other one. And I'm still around the 20's chapter maybe there will be differences don't know but I will give this a chance.
cringe story full of cliché, feel like a teenager filling it with whatever anime reference they can and most shitty cliché they can think of, MC is an hypocrite and is illogical, lasted 30 or so chapter but the appearance of Ainz was too much
world background almost non existant, character extremely cliché and annoying (MC say his sister smell great first few chapter, cringe)
first story chapter was closes to chapter 30
Look, we all know this story is based Off Astral Pet Store, but even then im enJoying reading it! Yes im only at the first 50 chapters and the plot is strikingly similar but the little diffrences are making it a good read, good not great!
This review is made after reading the first 6 chapters so some of my opinions might change.
In short this is a tranmigration comedy story of a young man to a cultivation world that focuses on taming beast. The young man gets a pet shop and a system to create the best pet store imaginable. So far pretty standard and nothing special or wrong with this. I can not say much about the world building because I've only read about the pet store and the system but so far the world gives me a feeling that it a Pokémon meets Xianxia kind of story. Or if you want to compare it with Chinese novels than you would probably compare it to the story about the internet shop in a cultivation world.
The main character has bit of an unrealistic personality for the situation that he finds himself in. And this off course is done for comedy purposes but to me it is what makes the comedy feel forced, it is too clear that this was done for a laugh and that makes it not funny anymore. My personal preference with fantasy books is that you have a fantasy setting and the people living in it live as if the fantasy stuff is normal. With transmigration stories this off course a bit different because the main character comes out of a completely different world and finds himself in a fantasy world so his perspective is different from that of the original inhabitants. The biggest advantage of the transmigration mc is that it allows the writer to have a natural reason to explain all the fantasy elements of the world. That in turn makes it easy to make the mc be relatable to the reader because the mc views the world with a similar perspective as the reader. And this is why the main character to me is strange, he lives in the world as if it is all a dream or computer game. For example even without fully understanding the world he is in, what the rules around beast taming are, how to cultivate, etc he immediately treats his pets as if they were the Pokémon from the computer game where throwing them at their opponent is the most natural thing to do. If for instance the mc would care about the animals at the beginning and slowly gets to the point where he treats them as game characters the way he treats them during training would be much funnier because as a reader you are taken on the journey where he transforms his relatable emotions about cute pet like animals to a 'do not care about their wellbeing' emotions because the pets are infinitely respawnable during training. Especially with comedy the path to getting to the crux of the joke is often more important than the joke itself, it's all in the delivery ;). As a reference look at Cultivation Chat Group, most jokes have at least a few paragraphs of preparation but there also jokes that have 10 or even 100 chapters as preparation. And it is exactly because of the preparation that even the dumbest and most predictable jokes can make you laugh (timing is off course also a thing but with a good delivery timing is easier).
Last but not least I have to mention the system itself. It is a system with a bit of pride and gives me the impression that it views its host as an ant. Off course this is done for comedy purposes too but it doesn't feel as forced as with the main character 's personality, probably because the system is not the thing that a reader should be able to relate to.
For now I think the story could be fantastic but also could fully flop, it depends on the development of the story and specifically how the comedy is presented. There is enough potential because the combination of fantasy elements is not something that is used very often. The first chapters were at least good enough to make me want to continue reading
aside from a small amounr of world background/development, this novel is a very good novel which I would defiantly recommend although some people claim it is similar to astral pet store, I feel that it js at the very least more interesting than Astral pet store.
I'm put this here. Before you think that this isn't worth paying for more chapters im gonna tell you, your wrong although the story isn't that good at the beginning lol it get much better later on even tho sometimes its still cringey lol I love the way he is developing into a God lol
