    First I'm quoting someone else's review: ๐šˆ๐š˜๐šž. ๐šˆ๐šŽ๐šœ ๐šข๐š˜๐šž. Be a good person and go give this novel a like even if you don't like it. We need more Korean novels in this site. Let's work together and give every single Korean novel in this new activity a like. Second, this novel has NU page and some KR MTL sites also already have this novel.

    This novel is pretty damn good. It's giving me a lot of Trash of the Count's family vibes but I like this one more. The MC reincarnates in the body of a total trash, who is a prince of the nation they are in and was exiled into a village for trying to rape the archbishop granddaughter. Now, I know it looks like it but it isn't a kingdom building novel(at least not until now).Characters are pretty likable, good comedy and interesting action scenes. The only complaint I have is that the trial reading ended in a big cliffhanger and this novel doesn't seem to have much chance, because the other necromancer novel is doing way better. The thought of having to wait months to read this again saddens me a lot.

    (The novel itself is good and interesting, so my review here is false story wise. It deserved 4.7) But the way it is presented and translated here in Webnovel is not good in anyway, so I am giving it 1 star. Originally it is supposed to be a novel the same length as other Korean novels, around 200 chapters, already completely written. But the author, or the translator for Webnovel is scum, so they cut it up into more parts to earn more money. Now around 39 to 40 chapters are cut into 60 chapters. That means the whole story is dragged out into around 300 - 350 chapters. It is such a scummy move that its just disgusting. Gone are the good days when you can novel chapters in their entirety. Now you can only read 50% or 60% of the original chapters, so go thank the perpetrator responsible for this "blessing"

    This Korean novel is really good so far and has a fairly likeable mc. The mc is a bit thuggish at times but not overly obsessed with killing everybody who looks at him funny unlike xianxia protagonists. The mc gets reincarnated with a necromancer class and which mixes interestingly with the body's inherent divine power. There is action, some comedy, and (so far) a solid plot. Definitely give it a try and see how you like it.

    would be a pretty ok novel if they weren't holding the last 25 chapters hostage behind a paywall, forcing you to become privileged to complete months and months of time invested in reading. i'll consider changing this when they consider being reasonable.

    why is this story chosen over Start With Contracting Sprites ??? Someone explain to me what I honestly don't understand. Start With Contracting Sprites has more views, more ratings and stars. there's even another Korean novel that surpasses it in everything

    So I went into this story thinking it'd be like all of the other new books and wouldn't be worth reading past the first few chapters, but to my surprise I found myself getting hooked into reading this. So my reasoning for my score is: Translation Quality 4/5 Everything seems good so far but these could be translations that days were spent on and when the new chapters hopefully get released we could see a quality drop. Stability of Updates 1/5 Yes we got 60 chapters at once but if this story gets picked up I have no idea if we're looking at a once a day or a few times a week in regards to updates, I'll come back and update this if it gets picked up. Story Development 3/5 The story seems to be a bit disjointed in terms of tone and the story seems to be rushing from one place to another, hopefully new chapters will improve these things. Character Design 4/5 I like the characters in this story quite a bit but many of them are stereotypical and don't seem to be acting like normal people would in certain scenarios so hopefully this will improve. World Background 3/5 The World background we see seems to be good but there isn't much outside of those small snippets that we know about the world at this point in time.

    The beginning was badly executed. I wanted to drop this due to the frustration but it does quickly get better and got readers hooked. If you read 'Yankee Wa Isekai De Seirei Ni' in a way it's similar but instead of a pipe, it's a shovel. --The script changes. Every Arc doesn't connect, clearly not a well-thought story. --His abilities weren't well explored or explained. This could had surpassed Trash Of The Count Family if it was rewritten and polished. --I love the MC eccentric personality. He just does things on a whim not caring about the consequences but still super-effective lol. I hate how some characters were discarded but at least Gril and former Count followed him. ---The characters that come up feel real though do need work ---*I really hope there's Romance with the 'Main Heroine'. Honestly although MC is compatible with Alice, you can tell she's into the elder brother (not really well written) I still prefer Charlotte the best though! Yes, this story has a lot of flaws but it's fun to read. I still want to see this Translated as it's been on hold on NU for a long time and I'd like to get this story over with. Honestly, I couldn't think of more pros to add lol

    So far in my opinion, chapter 1-20 is pretty much garbage, while at the same time it is not the ultra wish-fulfillment side of the usual Chinese novels, it is the wish-fulfillment side of the be good and do good faction. In other words a whole 180-degree turn from the worst. The author deliberately mentions things he tries to avoid and things he would like to do and the result? Just get dragged around by some random people he despises. No logic in there and simply be there in order to look good and for the plot to advance. Worst thing is that the author goes out of his way to make the protagonist say one thing to the audience while at the same time EXACTLY advancing and forcing the plot in a direction that is completely the opposite of the things that the protagonist should do according to its characterization. Chapter 20-30 is pretty okay, still cliche, and acceptable in my mind. It promises what it delivers, stops going out of its way to make the protagonist a useless piece of shit. Albeit not the best character, it doesn't follow the usual bullshit so far. Bullshit from Chapter 1-20: 4-5 times saying that one should not do that, it is dangerous and the protagonist knows that this is dumb stuff. Proceeds to do that exact thing. Chapter 30 onwards: Pretty decent. Still a little bit of cliche but with better character introduction, a general storyline that makes sense and actually makes me think this might be worth reading. Heck, the Chapter 30 onwards make it seem like the first 20 were deliberately written so badly so that people avoid this book. Advice: Skip the first 20 Chapters, it is a lot as this book only has 60 chapters so far but the first arcs are absolute garbage. It becomes almost a whole different book past these chapters.

    Had an enjoyable time reading this novel but the remaining 20+ chapters are stuck behind paywall so you will never find out the ending unless you pay for it. I can consider paying money to unlock chapters but not for limited time access like privileged. Dropping it this now.

    This is just disgusting. The novel was the only one available to vote for for a whole week and the night before the election the other books were revealed. Most readers already know the system is rigged as we only get to vote on what they want to put out, and with almost a 100% any book that is released to be voted on will make it because 1 vote a day gives rewards. Besides all that they left this novel (which is decent but by no means the best in the current selection) on for a week with no competition.

    I wasn't sure what this book would be like when I started at 7a Friday morning...but I was pleasantly surprised! I don't usually like 1st person (I think it's an easy out, and half the time, the author loses the thread of the story midway), but this is polished and hilarious! Our hapless MC has transmigrated into the body of a disgraced, HOLY prince whose past actions were anything (still, he was <15 when doing all that, so you got to wonder about his keepers), and now has banished to be a grave keeper in the sticks. Have we also mentioned that he's a necromancer... Currently halfway through the 60 available chapters, and so far, it's a blast. Hope it breaks the horror curse! (c'mon people! It's nearly Halloween so vote for this!!)

    it was a lovely read honestly, refreshing and even though it sounds as the apex of a cliche it's actually quite original in the use of those concepts, loved it all the way anf I would recommend it to anyone who's wondering.
