This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering a series I just started reading the other week! It’s I’m Really a Superstar Chapters 1-40 by Chang Yu!
Plot Synopsis: Zhang Ye was originally a mundane college graduate, cursed with below average looks and height but with aspiring dreams of becoming famous. However one day, he woke up and suddenly found himself in a parallel world! In this new world, most things were similar to his previous world but there existed subtle differences, be it: brands, celebrities or even famous works!
Armed with the knowledge of his previous world and a heaven-defying Game Ring that gives him magical items, stats and skills, Zhang Ye embarks on a journey to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a celebrity.Follow Zhang Ye as he takes the new world by storm, one plagiarized piece at a time, to hilarious reactions!
Plot: These first forty chapters are Zhang Ye’s foundation building chapters and while the real hilarity hasn’t even begun, these chapters are still hilarious. I laughed so hard I cried about every other chapter. If that doesn’t tell you how good this is, I can’t help you.
Characters: Zhang Ye is an amazing main character, he’s pretty fearless and doesn’t take crap from anyone, even if he’s a shameless thief. The rest of the cast is great as well, I particularly like Rao Aimin his landlady. She’s very, very vicious with her tongue and I love it.
Overall: If you want to laugh, this is a must read series. I can’t state how much I love this series enough, stop reading my words and go read this series (for a while please, not forever).
For those who like: Comedy, Shamelessness, Drama, Slice of Life, Laughing, Waking Up Your Neighbors from Laughter, Amazing Cast of Characters, Fantastic Plot.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but if you hate all of that I feel really sad for you.
