Why the hate?

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
Don't understand the hate but MC is sorta and sorta not OP, reincarnate with previous knowledge. He doesn't get OP THAT fast but a nice gradual speed. Story still has a lot to offer and its some of the better Chinese Manwha out there.

Please the art is good and like the characters, MC especially.

Trash power fantasy, but also stress-relieving reading material

This manhua is so poorly written ...

but it is also so addicting because it is a stress-free, instant-gratification, power fantasy.

i.e. It's trash we enjoy reading

Avoid mad snails work. He can never finish any story.
The start was good but it goes downhill.

Typical Mad Snail

Rating: 1.0 / 10.0
This story is basically identical to Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World but he has gotten better at hiding his bad habits. For Mad Snail, expect endless ass pulls, endless plot holes, endless plot threads that go no where, endless people pointlessly praising the MC, endless contradictions and endlessly cringey romance and social interactions where even the love interest is just another puppet there to praise the MC for doing things that shouldn't even be praised. He also likes to endlessly repeat the same Chinese idioms but I didn't notice it as much here but I don't know if that's due to the translator leaving them out or because Mad Snail finally learned something.

I could review his older story and you'd have a hard time knowing I wasn't reviewing TDG. MC dies and is reborn into the past with future knowledge. Future knowledge continues to be useful even when it shouldn't. Side characters are completely one dimensional and regardless of whether they are ally or foe, they exist just to prop up and praise the MC. MC asspulls super powers whenever they are needed and frequently forgets they ever existed. World building only serves to create contradictions and plot holes as the story progresses and plot threads with no resolution continue to breed endlessly. All social interactions of the MC make him seem like a sociopath and everyone just feeds into his psychosis. His relationship with his underage future wiafu is super cringey and pedo and he treats her like his personal possession, since they are fated to be together. Friends are just tools to show off his magnanimity and how much stronger he is, while enemies just exist to praise him and be seemingly impossible hurdles that he easily steps on. After going to the past, he immediately starts finding the magical McGuffin (chapters or pages, pick your story) that will make him instantly super powered to the point that no one can contest him, until they can and he just asspulls new super powers. Often, said McGuffin is forgotten about, until suddenly it's important again and fully assembling it is a task that will suddenly become important only at the very end, when MC needs to officially become a God to fight the Last Big Bad. I haven't read the ending of TDG but I'm sure he gets stupidly injured near the end and has to enter some kind of recovery montage where he rapidly gains power again and finally gets the final chapter/page of his McGuffin and becomes God like he did in the Thief story.

Honestly, Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World was probably the better read because it had an almost so-bad-its-good train wreck going. However, the MC really deserved to meet the same fate that sent him to the past to begin with, so the ending was exceedingly lackluster. It's obvious Mad Snail tried to hide his bad habits better with TDG but it just resulted in an even more bland and generic story. Also, he still ended up revealing his fetishes, even if he was slightly less blatant about it.

Edit: I forgot to mention but I have not read the novel for TDG and have no idea how accurate my predictions are and no idea if they qualify as actual spoilers, since they are a guess based off of reading Thief. I probably should mention I dropped Thief after chapter 925 because I read a spoiler summary about the asspull of him getting shot by a sniper (in spite of being able to dodge sniper bullets) and still survived. I would have been able to give mild praise to Mad Snail for the ending if he had let Nei Li, I mean Nei Yan, die from the sniper shot but he couldn't give the MC a fitting end and asspulled a magical recovery. I didn't bother to read the spoiler summary for the final chapters, so I don't know if he really became God or whatever but it's the prediction I made somewhere around the time he started collecting chapters and felt was written in stone a few hundred chapters later when an actual quest to become a god was introduced on top of him becoming Pope or whatever after finishing the book. It's possible Mad Snail had completely forgotten about the quest like so many others. Honestly, he doesn't need the official title of God because he already had broke OP powers long before then.

if you read carefully, the story is very interesting ... but unfortunately there is something that can be said "very less" ... the main character is impressed only focus on the family of the woman he loves ... but does not care about his own family ... I think the author is less observant here. on one hand he remembers his father's sacrifice before ... but on the other hand ... he is even more busy teaching the family of his future father-in-law and never teaching his family (his own sister not taught only helped by being given strength, that's all) ... is a miracle (except interfering with the story's author ) if later his family arrived there would be survivors except, from his girl family ...

It's so boring. I feel like it's a waste of your life. There's another similar manga that's better(don't remember the name off hand). Literally nothing happens. Why does even the money have some magic name that it doesn't need. It redefines generic. It isn't average, but painfully mediocre. At least the main character has a nice colorful design.

It's truly a struggle to read.

If you're looking for nice fighting shounen read, this one does the job. I did not get a masterpiece feeling from this one (yet). There's still potential. However it kept me entertained through all the chapters. The art is decent as well.

Good One

The manga was quite interesting and it gets you hyped at first. The first few chapters are full of adventure and shocks and the way the MC handles the situation in Mangazuki and Guess I'll Die is admirable and amusing to watch.

I'm personally not a fan of this kind of shounen manga but this one had some great elements to it The only thing I believe it lacked was good character development. The idea was very simple and the character development can be slow. This manga might have had the chance of coming in the top 10 of all time and maybe we could have seen it among Naruto and one piece but characters development failed it
