    Official Translations

    (QI translators are idiots. Correct name of novel: Spare Me, Great King).

    One of the most popular novel in China. Currently in top 3 on Chinese Qidian.

    The story is about a world undergoing mutation and our hero has a system. It's different from other system novels.

    The bad part is that the translators aren't exactly reliable when it comes to quality from what I have seen with their previous work. The title is more like "Great King" instead of "Great Lord". In fact author uses spiritual energy or qi. The translator even left the city name and many locations in pinyin.

    The best part (and reason for its popularity) about this novel is that the author uses a lot of play on words (more of tweaking Chinese sayings/phrases). So unless the translator is really good English readers can't have the full fun.

    Just to clarify the translations are good and totally readable. Just not as good as the novel deserves seeing its standing.

    Not really a spoiler but I really loved how in future chapters author actually wrote about the agony parents suffer when their child start cultivation as cultivation path is full of life threatening risks. I actually appreciate how author didn't forget such an important detail. Most novels ignore this point.

    Just for the record, Strix is definitely not some wuxiaworld fanboy or anything, he's just being brutally honest.

    He was one of the guys that people used to call QI spy, shill, and such when the QI vs WW drama was going strong for being more impartial...


    Anyway, for the actual novel, I guess I'll be checking it out some time in the future. If it's decent enough, it should at least have a decent or above average TL speed as that's the QI priority kinda.

    Unfortunate when the TL sucks so you can't read, but well, it's not like anyone would have read it without the TL either. So hit or miss, if it's a hit, it can only really be a good thing or nothing different from before.

    It's not like QI would let anyone else TL it anyway (As unfortunate as that is)

    Just to clarify the translations are good. So you can definitely read them. I'm just saying they are not as good as the novel deserves seeing its popularity. The novel deserves a quality level of Deathblade, RWX,CKtalon, etc.

    But now we are getting GGP level quality which is a terrible thing according to me as the author does magic on Chinese sayings/phrases.

    I really like this one, MC nonchalant about everything' and only care about his sister.

    The comedy more natural and the story really fresh.
