He was referenced as working on a transport vehicle several times since they moved into space and it was stated that it had an orb shape. It didn't come out of nowhere as you imply. He was working on it before they ever reached Floating Dragon Isle and he received materials that allowed him to work on it while helping on FDI. View More

Trying to picture a rock propelled grenade launcher now. I imagine a tube holding a grenade and then you just hit the tube with the rock to launch the grenade. View More

This story has been nothing but enjoyable. The characters are enjoyable and there is clear development. No character of any importance lacks development. The system of power and the various Laws behind it are well thought out. Twists and unexpected events abound. Looking forward to how it all comes together. View More

Awesome as always, looking forward to him potentially finding the rest of the Virtues. Methinks he might find a new law when he catches them all. The Law of Poke...I mean uh, Balance. View More

While it isn't perfect, this is a better example of the trope of using future knowledge to your benefit. What really makes it stand out is the protagonist doesn't care if his actions change outcomes and in facts welcomes changes as opportunities to be exploited. It sometimes suffers from a little deus ex machina where he conveniently finds the design he needs or stumbles upon a treasure that helps him in his next encounter. The solutions he comes up with and his unorthodox methodology are enjoyable though. It also doesn't appear to be written off the cuff as there is evidence of foreshadowing and links back to earlier characters and story that show there is at least some planning behind it. Author doesn't conveniently forget about things just because it happened 40 chapters ago. View More

Quit begging for extra chapters. Translating can take a lot of time and I doubt that this is the translator's only job. 2ish chapters a day is fine. Thanks as always for the chapters. View More

This is not a review. Quit using reviews to hate on premium. It's pointless, immature and lacks courtesy. View More

I already wrote one review for this but I feel the need to do so again due to people using reviews incorrectly. Yes a large chunk of the story is premium. This is not a decision the translator or writer makes alone. Qidian itself makes the most popular stories go premium. They may be able to stall for a bit but eventually the story will go premium. You get free ss every day, more than enough to unlock a few chapters each day if you want to. It's an unfortunate fact that if a novel is good, it will eventually go premium. If you like your character to fight a lot and see him develop in various ways instead of always being a one trick pony you might like this. If you like scifi and genetic alteration this might be for you. Sure there is plot armor sometimes and the side characters are often not relevant for long. It doesn't mean the story isn't enjoyable and that sometimes things don't twist the way you expect. Read the story if it sounds interesting and don't listen or contribute to fake reviews that just hate on Premium. I don't like it when novels I like go premium but it doesn't stop me from keeping up with the ones I like the most. View More

The chapters will all be free eventually if you are patient enough. If you just read this the daily stone's should be enough to get you many chapters each day since they are only 3-4 per chapter. View More

eliah: Cant view the story for free.. I'm disappointed.. 😞😟 I hope we could see the update of the story for free or we could watch ads to view the update of the story...

This is a story about a cute little bun, a big cold bun and a sweet and spicy bun. That being said, if you have diabetes, you may want to avoid this story cuz it's full of sugar. Saccharine sweet as they say. It's a very refreshing novel, my only complaint being how much the main antagonist is allowed to get away with and how easily the public just goes with everything said before even attempting to verify the facts.

This story is set in the far future where humanity has spread to the stars. They are able to teleport to an alternate mysterious dimension called God's Sanctuary. While technology does not work there, humans hunt various beasts to devour their genes. As they increase their gene points they become stronger. Han Sen is considered useless by most of his shelter after an embarrassing incident that occurred on his first day in the sanctuary. Fortunately he stumbles upon an unexpected treasure that changes the course of his life.

The story has an intriguing premise and the beast soul and gene point system is interestingly designed. While Han Sen does sometimes suffer from plot armor his scheming against stronger opponents is fun to read. He is very hard working and does his best to take care of his family. What I'm really trying to say is that it's a good read. Give it a shot. View More

Charlatan: If you are REALLY curious about the meanings of character names, read below. Might be a little LONG. No spoiler.

First of all, we should know that Chinese is a tonal language, while English assigns stress to one syllable of every word. Tone is one of the distinctive features of standard Chinese(Mandarin). If we neglect the four tones in the transcription of Chinese names, we may lose/misunderstand informations, sometimes are quite important. Just look at these names: Chén Guǒ(Boss), Wèi Chēn(God of shamelessness), and Wǔ Chén(Captain of Team Everlasting). We’ve got three “Chen”s here but they don’t share the same tone. Yep, there are still two of them alike, but if we write them down in ideogram, you’ll see that they are completely different(of course their meaning varies). Now we’re at around Chapter 800, as a Chinese fan who has run through the whole novel four times, if you already find it hard remembering Chinese names, well, keep working, cuz still loads of new names ahead.
I mentioned this point just because I saw a comment saying their names are similar. In fact, not at all😂.

Second, Chinese is a high-density language, it means it carries more information per syllable than English, besides, Chinese has an enormous amount of so called set phrases(Chinese idioms) which are in general consist of only 4 ideograms each, but can tell a whole story!(that’s an insane information density). For the fluency of reading, it’s not possible to translate their names accurately. The translator has had to trim.

Butterfly Blu is a vey talented writer, his works are written with much literary skill, as well as naming. We know that names can convey something, and almost every author would use this technic. For instance, in the Beggar’s Opera of John Gay, we have Lockit, Macheath, Peachum, etc. Without knowing the meaning of the names, it will definitely be a great loss.

So, enough talk, let’s get started.

[1] 叶修[Yè Xiū], MC
叶秋[Yè Qiū], the younger brother
In Asian culture, if we are brothers, our names are usually some how similar, as if to demonstrate that we are brothers. It’s kinda like the rhetorical figure anaphora😄

another example will be more obvious:
苏沐橙[Sū Mù Chéng]
苏沐秋[Sū Mù Qiū]
(Sū is their family name, not Sū Mù.)

They doesn’t need to rhyme, but “anaphora”.

Here we can see 叶秋 and 苏沐秋 have a character in common—the last character [Qiū], means autumn. This is merely a coincidence.But in the case of “One Autumn Leaf” is not.

*I’ll write word-for-word translation between【】

一叶之秋[yí yè zhī qiū]【One Leaf ’s Autumn】
The second and the last character are exactly the name of Yè Qiū. Or, it might be a combination of Yè Xiū and Sū Mù Qiū.
We know that it’s Sū Mù Chéng who picked this name for YX. She knows YX’s real name from the very beginning, so maybe she wished that they could fight together in the Glory.

And, “One Autumn Leaf” is a mistranslation, cuz the literal translation should be “The autumn of one leaf”, “one leaf” is actually an attribute of the word “autumn”. We shift the order, and the artistic conception changes.
P.S.Chinese is an isolating(analytic) language, means it plays with word order, and lacks inflections in morphology. That’s one of the reasons why it has such a high information density.

BUT! When Sū Mù Chéng picked this name, she made a typing error. She wanted to type “一叶知秋”[yí yè zhī qiū],the pronunciation is exactly the same as “一叶之秋”[yí yè zhī qiū], but you already found that the third character has changed. The third character “知” here means “know, foresee”, so the whole meaning changed completely, because “One Leaf ’s Autumn” is a noun phrase whilst the one with “know” is a sentence which means “From a falling leave we can tell this year/my life(here’s a pun) is coming to an end.” 【One leaf heralds autumn】This is precisely the set-phrase I mentioned above.

Sū Mù Chéng preferred a poetic name, but her fingers slipped. So here we have 【One Leaf ’s Autumn】instead of 【One leaf heralds autumn】. Sad story.

What about “Lord Grim”? Another mistranslation!
君莫笑[jūn mò xiào]【you don’t laugh】
“Lord” in this context is the second person imperative when you address sb in a very respect way, kinda like “my lord” in English, but a little different. The sentence means “please don’t laugh”. It comes from a verse of a poetry of Tang Dynasty. The whole poetry is:
(There are two translating versions)
Version One:
Grapewine I would like to taste,
have to go yet I would crave.
Thou dost not tease drunk soldiers of all,
Long ago few come back from war.

Version Two:
Exquisite wine in cups that glitter at night,
The pipa(a Chinese instrument) playing on horseback urges us to drink.
Laugh not if we lie drunk on the battlefield.
Since ancient times how many have ever returned from campaigns afar?

So “君莫笑[jūn mò xiào]【you don’t laugh】”are the last three words of the third verse. What the hell is “Lord Grim”?😂

When we see this name, we can perceive the solemn and stirring shadings, when YX just got kicked out of EE then bring out a Card with this name. And thinking about the pro league is just like a battle field, only very few of the players could enter the pro circle and those who win the cup are even fewer.

Nevertheless, we can not ask more, cuz as the translator of the Anime of TKA said, it’s a pity that we cannot make subtitles very much “faithful”, the cross-culture translation is so hard. I bet some of you has already blamed that the English subtitles just flying through the screen and you can not catch up with them.

If anyone is interested in the true meaning of their names(not only for characters but also the names of guilds are so beautiful), please give me a thumb or reply in the comment, to let me know if it’s worthy to continue.

btw, My major is foreign languages and literature. I major in German and live in Italy currently. So please forgive my low Englisch level.😂

The story is fantastic when it comes to the character design and the romance between the main characters is saccharine sweet. The little bun is a delight but if there is one thing that I can not stand It's how petty and idiotic the antagonists get. Then Ning Xi just let's them get away with it. If you walked into my apartment when I didn't invite you, you 'd get a one way flight to the entryway floor. That being said, it's worth the read. View More
