TNT: Black Belly Miss Chapters 81-120 by North Night

This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m back to covering Jun Wu Xie’s rise from infamy. It’s Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss Chapters 81-120 by North Night!

Plot Synopsis: Having awakened her contractual spirit Little Lotus, Wu Xie is now concerned with protecting the dignity of the Lin Palace her family rules over. And all the time Jun Wu Yao is always to the side watching his little “sister”…

Plot: This set of chapters is probably where the story really takes off. It’s really awesome seeing Wu Xie being absolutely badass, and while I won’t say more than that it was highly satisfying to read.

Characters: We get to know more about Wu Xie and her family in this set of chapters, but we also get to learn a bit more about Wu Xie and her past life. There are a couple new characters, but overall it’s mostly familiar faces for this set of chapters.

Overall: A highly entertaining set of chapters that really lay down the foundation for the rest of the story. If you aren’t reading already, you ought to be.

Serial Saturday: Once Human, Now a Parasite Chapters 1-40 by Crow

This week for Serial Saturday I’ve got another series for you! It’s Once Human, Now a Parasite Chapters 1-40 by Crow!

Plot Synopsis: Arthur, an incredibly successful businessman was kidnapped and tortured for months by men his wife hired just so she could get his money. After months of this hell, he was given a second chance, a new life in a different world. Arthur would, of course, rather start a new life; than stay and continue to be tortured…

Plot: Let me point out straight away, this isn’t a story for kids. Arthur is not a nice person and thinks nothing of slaughtering everyone and everything that gets in his way. If that doesn’t make you uninterested, than welcome to a fairly decent story. This isn’t as amazing as Ghosthound, but it still makes Qi Worlds look like something written by a first grader. That being said there are some grammar issues that occur in Once Human, mostly at the beginning as it does get better as Crow continues writing. That being said if you can stick through to about chapter 40 the series does get it’s feet under it by that point. It’s not top quality by then, but it’s better than it starts off.

Characters: Arthur is a decent enough lead, and although he does have some depth issues, he isn’t as bland as Benzhi from Qi Worlds.  The rest of the cast is severely lacking though, except for one character who I won’t name. It’ll be fairly obvious who I mean though once you come across that character.

Overall: Decent, but could use some real work. Has the potential to be quite amazing, but some grammar issues and lack of character depth is a real big downside.

For those who like: LitRPGs, Fantasy, Magic, Decent Plot, Darker Lead Character.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, or Lack of Character Depth and/or Minor Grammar Issues.

Personal Status: On Hold, Letting chapters accumulate so I can binge read it during this summer. Whether I last until summertime before starting it up again remains to be seen.
