Kirby Jon transmigrates to a parallel spacetime and is chosen to act as a bank robber in an exercise. Kirby Jon, who has obtained the God-level acting system, would receive a generous reward if he can act as a robber and attain an S-level score.

Thus, in an exercise that everyone thought would be patronizing, Kirby Jon runs circles around the police using his high IQ. The police attack again and again but are taken down time and time again. The exercise lasts for more than two days. Kirby Jon's high IQ skills shocks the entire country. In an instant, many banks and police stations invite Kirby Jon to participate in exercises with him as a robber to prove their security. However, none of them succeed in capturing Kirby Jon.

    Interesting novel, butchered by translator. The MC (in the raws) is called Sun Jin and he isn't former navy SEAL, and he has nothing to do with FBI. It even has nothing to do with USA, all the names are Chinese.

    I can accept that it makes no sense for a Navy SEAL to be working in the FBI for retirement money. I can accept that the MC doesn’t doubt the system which came out of no where even a little. I can accept the inaccurate descriptions of the USA and the sterotypical misogynistic depiction of female characters in the few chapters that I have read. I can accept using catties over kilograms and using weight to measure the amount of money in a bag. But live-streaming an FBI “drill” and turning a bank robber into a celebrity? What the f***. Mtling is one thing but this plot is like something out of a middle school kid’s imagination, completely unrealistic and full of holes. Even for a fictional story this is just too much. I would actually like to give this a one star review, but since it’s at least readable in English and it’s a trial read, I won’t t give a one star to the translation and release rate categories.

    Pretty meh. It was cool at first, but it became long winded. The first bank robbery scene lasts basically 15 chapters or so. Way too long imo. I got bored when nothing was happening. They just kept exaggerating how ferocious he looked or whatever. Boring

    Who tf asked for this website to "americanize" the novels? They seem to keep doing it even though I haven't read a single review where anyone said they even remotely liked it

    There are so many problems with the translation that I'm not too sure where I should start 😅 Firstly, there are plenty of occasions with inappropriate choice of words. The Grammer and sentence structures are also off. Secondly, I do not like the Americanization of the novels. E.g. changing the Main Characters name from a Chinese name to a Western name. I have always been against translators localizing the translation and taking such a liberal approach in defacing/butchering the original author's work. Besides, if I was looking for a Western novel, I would look for it on Kindle, preferably written by a Western author. I find all these fake Americanized novels off-putting and will not be earning any coins from me.

    Translation Quality: Terrible, feels like an edited machine translation. Stability of Updates: New novel. Story Development: Slow paced chapters with padding, cliche. Character Design: Flat characters, main character has cliche personality. World Background: It's Earth, somehow in USA.

    ok, not to knock this book, but we were 3 deep in the voting pool, with actual novels that won voting not getting chapters right away, because others, like this one, jumped the order?? idc which books you actually end up choosing, but having a user involved system and ignoring it is much worse than not having a system at all

    This is good stuff. It's kinda a slow build up type of novel(also short chapters cmon bruh) but it's all good. world back ground hasn't made much actual progress(we see how the people view things and all but that's nothing but a brick in its foundation). character is good and quite consistent from what I read (1-20 chapter). Stability of Updates? c'mon webnovel can't you not suck any further? I'm genuinely woried about the path y'all decided to take.

    I really love this new story and I really, really, really hope it is picked to be continued. I was just thinking the other day that there really weren't tons of thief/con man stories on this site and some of the ones that were here were VRMMO stories where there were very little actual stealing/heists and more traditional fighting against monsters. However, just as I was getting frustrated, low and behold Webnovel actually adds a potential thief novel! I love movies like Ocean's 11 and the Sting, and this scratches that heist itch. For those who can't get behind rooting for a thief/criminal or find the schemes of those heist movies a little too unbelievable, don't worry. This novel does not have those problems. First, the heist depicted in this story is actually a drill to test out the preparedness of the police officers and the bank security. The main character is simply pretending to be a robber. As such, no one is actually hurt or harmed during this process. Second, the main character takes a very realistic approach for his heist. Rather than walking in with nothing but a suit like some heist movies might do, he walks into the bank with a mask as well as fake guns and grenades to simulate what a real bank robber would do. It feels realistic. However, it is not boring either. The various schemes, strategies, and precautions he uses against the authorities really make it feel like there is a complex scheme in play like any of the heist movies. Even now when the heist is reaching its final stages in chapter 20, I still don't know how he will get away. While many stories are by the numbers on this site and you can easily predict how confrontations will end, a story that can surprise you to the very last moments is a precious treasure. As a final bonus, the story takes place in the United States, so as an American reader, I can more easily connect to the characters and the story. There is one tiny slip up at one point where they use the measurement "catties" instead of pounds, but other than that it is easy to get immersed in the story. In conclusion, read this novel if you like fun heist stories that surprise you. You will not have to worry that this story will be too unrealistic or the character is hard to root for.
