I binged read to the latest chapter after reading this comment thanks for introducing me to this novel it was really good other than some few grammar errors the story is really superb View More

Nyko: I was pretty astounded when I saw the ratings for this novel - if not saddened.
This is... complicated.

I was glad to see this on Qidian since I started to use this app and The Dark King was a pretty good and original novel IMO. I binged it up to around chapter 400 I guess ?
Anyway, I was sad because I don't understand how people can give 5 stars to blatant copy pasta of typical xianxias, while trashing someone who, for once, did something a bit original.
And succeeded at it.

The Dark King is a post-apocalyptic novel about the survival of a young boy forsaken by the world.
Clearly not the light-headed kind of novel, The Dark King brings the most out of its story by toying with the reader's emotions.
I dunno if you ever cried reading a novel - I did - and somehow, I find it quite pleasant.
It's a food for the soul - as some great man once said.
The Dark King is, as usual in chinese novels, a story with a powerful main character.
However, and this is where it differs from the norm, there is no oh-so-welcomed/blatantly obvious plot armor. Of course the main character won't die. Nevertheless it doesn't mean he'll never fail.
The author tries to make it as realistic as possible, even if it means showing the readers the ugly side of humanity.
So the hero is a normal boy starting as low as you can start : treated as a low-life by the lowest of low-lives.
Nothing unusual.
But surprisingly there is no multicolored thunder coming to make him a killing god, no sudden heaven-trashing artifact reversing single-handedly his fate.
No, he simply just climbs the hierarchy using his guts and his wits.
Such a shame that the author wouldn't allow the clever hero to live a blissful existence.
Tragedy befalls him one after the other and he falls to a pathetic state.
The author depicts the transition of cleverness to cunningness.
Throughout the story the main character - who furthermore didn't live in a pink world of pixies and unicorns - gets the taint of society unraveled to him and becomes desillusioned.
A very believable transformation happens.
The hero wanted to survive, now, he wants to live.
Even if it means being ruthless and using the most underhanded tactics.

In a nutshell, the hero has to fight more against the human of the inside than the monsters of the outside world.
He fights many action-packed battles, but prevail in the political curtains.
He becomes strong both mentally and physically not through some heaven-sent opportunities, but because of what he experienced.

So when I see this getting such a rating, I feel it is my duty to speak up.
This is a wonderful novel.
Thanks for your time.

Amen Brother am supportive of a good harem but a terrible one where you just reach the point where you don't really get the point of some characters other than them having to bang the MC once in awhile the story line just gets terrible View More

Pedram: I should say i agree with Leylin and Tenko more or less, What i hate the most in some novels is 2 thing ! I hope "Get Lost" also don't bring these 2 things in his story.
1st : MC try to kill someone or his whole clan just because of some verbal not giving him face lol specially when it's not a good thing to do at that time or his power is not enough to Finish it cleanly and will invite future trouble, you would think people who cultivate for many year and have their mind and intelligence improved so much more than normal humans, would be more tactful but nope !

2nd : If it's gonna be Single girl and not harem ! don't bring in a lot of girl every few chapter having a many encounter with MC and having MC Tease her or sometimes hugs her and other things, then she stay faithful to MC and wait for him all her life ! but MC go for that 1 girl and give no fk ! :D i wouldn't be so mad if that girl just go marry someone else but author make them stay for MC till last chapter yet MC ignore.

if It's Harem ! it's more tricky ! the author should be able to make a good harem and it's not easy, when readers forget name of a harem girl or her story, it mean she was not developed enough, story did not really needed her.

the problem with most novels is the non-harem have memorable girl who you want to cheer for mc but stay lonely till she die ! xD
harem have lots of girls who either fell for MC or MC rape then they fell for MC, right and left !

I normally don't like Stories with more than 3-5 harem girl coz it usually end up bad,
There is one exception is Grasping Evil, So far MC got like 1k girl "wait on his bed" but not his wife, he got like 8 wife and i can name and say all their stories completely. the story also is not about girl or no useless drama at all mostly and is really well made and deep and mysterious, both fights and techniques and dao and world building is huge. MC is not a bad guy, wont betray friends, but no problem killing and stealing stranger's treasure and loot them even if they did not provoke him and were innocent, it's a cruel cultivation world after all. ( he wont kill mortals who don't cultivate tho )

I haven't watched Anime in years LOL it went from Anime --> Manga now am at Web Novels I've had this profile pic for a long time so I really don't see your point there and Yes I won't argue with you Japanese shounen stories sometimes have retarded nonsense when it comes to plot progression I completely support that claim View More

Tenko: Edit: Also - some of your problems basically say, you don't like Xianxia. You are like a grandpa complaining about violence in action movies. Then watch an animal documentary instead, please. This website has other genres, the internet and the nearest library certainly do as well. Your just so free to go and read whatever is to your liking. We like many of these novels - that is the reason as to why they are so popular. You are using the Hitman as your profile pic. It is not like these Japanese shounen stories are not full of absolutely retarded nonsense, when it comes to plot progression. There is very few exceptions and Katekyo Hitman (Reborn) is definitely not one of them.

Its not only MGA doing this a lot of Xianxia novels are just doing it and it's basically everyone copying the same thing for years now.

I liked MGA but over time it just lost its color View More

Crater: Seems you just didn't like MGA very much as all your examples seem to stem from there, ATG still makes a better attempt at romance in a harem than most other novels and God and devil world is a post apocalyptic novel where the MC isn't a good person although he tries to act like it but you can just see that as someone who has become like those he hates but refuses to admit it... Of course he's still better than most others in that novel. Not gonna bother trying to defend MGA though.

There are times where certain over used plots fits in with the story and the author of Warlock of the Magus World clearly knows how to do it I personally like the character and the book. Eventhoah sometimes things go overboard but it eventually falls in together like a puzzle that's been solved and that whats best about the book

Some other authors tho they fail to explain the MC action enough for people to actually understand their action of slaughtering a city for just 1 or 2 people we've seen that in God and Devil World where MC slaughters people of different region just because they didn't give face to China or some nonsense **** the author just came up with

It really depends on how the author utilizes these kinds of scene sometimes it makes the novel really interesting or just makes it another Xianxia out there View More

Leylin_Farlier: Completely wrong. The xianxia that die from slaughter are those who try to justify or whitewash it. Such as "I'll kill this entire city of 900,000 people just because two or three people from one of the several powerful families in the city insulted me"... That is bull****. But if you don't whitewash then it can make a novel far better than before. Just think Warlock of the Magus World, his slaughter of innocents is so pure and ****** that it actually makes the novel go from great to greatest. A devil that pretends to be good is disgusting, but if this MC is a devil and acts like a devil then I have high hopes for the mayhem he will cause.

Hmm let's see how many novels have been ruined that way

MGA
God and Devil World
ATG
etc

Everyone is entitled to their opinion mate
Am fine if a female character is introduced formally or a new way into the harem most of the time its something like this

The MC is forced to rapes the female due to special circumstances (MC is drunk, Drugged, In order for his cultivation to advance, Has a grudge against the female, etc) The female hates the MC for like 3 chapters then falls in LOVE with the guy who just RAPED her

THESE FEMALE CHARACTERS ARE NOT LIKE OTHER CHARACTERS IN THE NOVEL FIRST THING

A) They are either some worldly genius accompanied with a country destroying beauty ( Most of the time cruel to others aside the MC)

B) Have a mysterious background that eventually ends up supporting the MC after few skirmishes with its young masters because their ego has been punched by the MC or they secretly like the female so they want to teach the MC not to eat a swan because he's a toad, etc

Another method the author uses usually involves the MC running away and ends up being saved by a female beauty then they bang or the other way around the female MC is chased by some rival and she's drugged and the MC shows up heroicly to save her then they bang etc

Again everyone is entitled to their opinion if a female is introduced in another way other than the usual then this novel is bound to get boring cause that just the way it is

You can't expect people to like a story to be interesting if the plot is forced

Most novels nowadays the MC is an arrogant narrow-minded ***** or idiot (Depending on what you want to call him) who offends people --> Gets a strong backing/ or Get stronger then defeat them --> If the enemy he just defeated ends up having a bigger background than originally thought --> He loses his backing then he still offends the stronger background the last guy had then there goes the loss of face and some other normal **** 300 chapters in and this has happened like gazillion times

Xianxia novels are all basically the same tbh there are only few exceptional that you can actually enjoy reading without being spammed by the repetition of plots View More

Tenko: I like worlds and characters that fit and build a believable whole. Japanese School LN will have people heavily against killing, since that is the social norm. Slaughtering people and having multiple women makes total sense in a cultivation based world, where the strong rule and survival is the purest form of survival of the fittest. Women even in our world tend to follow the strong males - it is instinct. In a world, where your male support is vital for your future generations and your own life, following a strong and talented male to the point of sharing with multiple women is totally normal and nothing special or bad. Having only one women is convention on earth - not even everywhere. Don't superimpose this on a fantasy novel. I don't want to read the novel, where the protagonist gets sued for damaging property after having a fistfight and then going to jail for being unable to pay. Also I have never seen this so called slaughter of innocent. Who is innocent in the first place. In a dog eats dog world the concept of innocence is rather vague. You should go back to reading your Japanese shounen novels and manga. You can have - mostly - children oriented, peaceful, unrealistic fantasy worlds as to your liking. Have fun.

YourGrandfather: A lot of boring blabla that I didn't read + 2 prizes 100x directing skillbooks, 101x cameraman skillbook - means one of the next arcs will be him producing a movie. Naturally with him as director pruducer and main act.

Everything about this novel is just superb
I finished this novel in 1 Day (Currently at Chapter 111) I just can't get enough of it

The suspense just keeps you on the edge through out the story
MC is a pretty normal guy and isn't narrow-minded like most MC in the novels I see nowadays

Some moments in this novel are so deep and you just can't help but shed a tear

The best part of the novel I would rate 10/10 is the world building immense details goes into it and it allows the story to progress steadily without the MC offending people left and right just so the story can develop

The translation quality is definitely awesome I send my props to whoever is doing such an awesome job at it

Keep up the good work and pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese pump out more chapters (This is probably one of the only few novels in qidian am willing to endorse with cash so they can release more chapters ) View More
