    Umm. Any starting topics? I honestly read only a bit of the book. But from what I've read he isn't really born with anything special but probably gets a legendary item or system later due to an accident, heritage, etc. So what's that all about?

    MC lives in a post-apocalyptic world in which technology related to electricity, nuclear bombs, etc is dead. People rely on iron,steam...basic technologies. Demons and other creatures exist as well.

    It's well written. MC is a young kid who has reached puberty (so he thinks about what people of his age dream: girls). I actually like his goals even though I rarely read harems;) MC is completely ordinary with ordinary dreams but he stumbles upon a lucky chance.

    The world building so far is good.

    He is an ordinary youth striving for survival and a good life but founds a crystal in the shape of egg (with carving of a "door" on it) which has a sapling inside it. The title of series is related to that. I won't spoil it for you but it's well written and definitely recommended.

    Come on, you guys~~As the translator of Castle of Black Iron for Qidian International, I can tell you for sure that you can learn a lot from the novel to be a man like Zhang Tie. I really like the MC,he's kind,brave,righteous and funny.Besides, he knew how to do business...So you can learn how to do business from Zhang Tie,LOL~~Through reading this novel, we can learn how to be a kind-hearted man who regards his family members as the most important. Appreciate you guys love this book~~

    Never give it up by only reading the previous 12 chapters, as the story begins to be interesting from chapter 13. Although it feels bad at the beginning, it reflects the true innocent scenes in the high school.Barley was not the MC., Zhang Tie is. To tell the truth, the members of Hit-Plane Brotherhood were not bad. The author describes them to form a sharp contrast between the previous chapters and the later chapters so that the readers could touch the real inner heart of the Hit-Plane Brotherhood. Miss Daina is just an adoration. She said that she would marry one of her students was to encourage them to be great fighters so as to survive this age.

    I wanted to enquire about the naming of MC's cheat tree. What exactly does "Manjusaka" means? Someone mentioned that the tree name has "treasure" "thousand" character in it. Have you used pinyin for them? (If possible please translate the tree name completely instead of pinyin as otherwise meaning is lost).

    Thanks.

    We have changed it into "Manjusaka Karma Fruit Tree", Manjusaka is a Sanskrit word which in Buddhism is related to life and death. If readers couldn't understand its meaning, we will add a note under the chapter where it appears for the first time.

    I swear this novel is really really good, you will sense it after chapter 13 when the small tree enters the MC's mind for the first time. It's a steampunk fantasy novel combining both Chinese features and western features. Readers can also experience Karma between life and death, which is strongly mentioned in Buddhism. After reading this novel, you will understand why the author would spend more than 3 years to finish it and why the translator would spend about 4-5 years to finish translating it. Because, it worth that.

    Hello fellow readers, i am currently at C10, i am not hurrying with it, i read once in a while, as there is no point in hurrying as i will eventually catch up and it would be a nightmare than...
    I have a question, its not plot related or anything but your personal opinion on something, as this matter makes me quite uncomfortable whilst reading this novel but it might not be a case for you, btw it is not about ero aspects (which i find dead weird as well as what sane high schooler with his friend would take out his manhood and fap in a classroom?) now back to the main issue, there is this character in the novel, its the black guy by the name of Bagdad, does anyone else cringe at this name when they read it? because whenever i read and his name comes out, i think of this; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baghdad i know it may seem a bit racist from me to associate the name of a black character with the capital of iraq but still it does sound very similar doesnt it? what are your thoughts on this?

    Bagdad is just a name that represents power and braveness.
