    Shifu- Yep, she’s already thinking about it.:eek:
    Anna- It’s the red hair, CN novels always have a red haired harem girl.:ROFLMAO:
    Childhood Friend- :D
    General- Because she’s now going to beat up sword cultivation guys because they’re NOT the MC.:whistle::ROFLMAO:
    Singer- Because @jacobpaige is right, without the singer, the harem would be overbalanced...all the feisty girls will fight and destroy the world...:ROFLMAO:

    I was actually talking about the balance within the trio of harem members from Reality: Anna (God's Chosen), Xue Er (Elementalist) and the singer (currently undecided, and hasn't yet met him). It's why I was predicting that she'd pick martial artist. Honestly, I could even see her becoming his shifu's successor since his shifu is also a martial artist, and none of her current disciples are.

    As for feistiness, I'm not so sure that the singer won't also be feisty when it comes to fighting the others over the MC.

    You’re right...

    MC: World Destruction!?!?
    Zhang Ying Hao: Your girlfriends are going to cause the apocalypse, arguing over who you’ll go with to THE MALL?!?!:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:
    MC: :blob_tilt:
    Zhang Ying Hao: DON’T GIVE ME THAT STUPID LOOK!!! Just...try to control your girls...
    Anna: Die.

    Urgh, really hoping that neither Shifu nor Singer gets a crush on the protagonist.

    Honestly that's a part of its charm in my opinion. The fact that what seemed like a cliche (buying time to get support from a mysterious force to fight against the enemy) was quickly found to be something else entirely makes it unpredictable and fun.

    I know what you mean. I feel like a new mechanic shows up every other chapter. There's like 5 (probably more) systems of power increase running concurrently right now. It's becoming very confusing.

    "Every evil deed that Max had ever done... drug dealing and usage" So, using drugs is evil? That's a very narrowminded viewpoint. I wonder if the author is sheltered or just pandering to the censors.

    "unauthorized casinos" So, authorized casinos aren't evil? I wonder if the author is aware of how many lives they intentionally destroy each year. Sure, they (probably) won't cut you up into little pieces the way unauthorized ones might, but they don't need to. The law is on their side. Or are casinos in China regulated to a point where people can't actually lose everything they have while going into massive irreconcilable debt?

    I wonder if there would be people who would donate simply to see someone torn asunder. It's only one million drops of blood after all. It would only take about 30 sadists to kill an innocent person with this judging method. Well, assuming they were physically healthy and gave the maximum amount they safely could.

    Honestly, I wouldn't call this a gatcha machine. Its much more of a cross between Kickstarter and a vending machine. If you're honest, you'll probably get what you want after all. With gatchas, you really can't guarantee that. Generally, the odds are very much against you the vast majority of the time.

    The schadenfreude was strong in those two chapters.:facepalm:

    I agree with all your points.:D

    Dude the machine already said that the judging method is through the laws abided by the world netizens. Those things are against the law, that's it.

    There are many things that are illegal in the world that aren't actually evil, and many things that are evil that aren't illegal. In this case, the description clearly stated "evil", which is the metric I'm referring to. After all, it said nothing about him speeding, or jaywalking, or criticizing the government when talking with his friends. I'm fairly certain that all of those are all illegal in his home country, and I'd be surprised if he hadn't done all of them more times than he can count. There is a very definite moral judgement being made here, not just a factual one.

    While I assume the evil deed (just a prank bro) machine is just a joke made by the author, but if it actually worked then celebrities etc. would get so much harassment.

    Or imagine this, MC is fighting against some big bad and just as he's going to go in for the kill the machine appears and kicks his but...

    Wouldn't people tire of participating in these trials quite quickly? Or die from blood loss? Or become convinced that a world with so much suffering wasn't worth living in anymore?

    Also, there's no mention of what happens when someone's falsely accused, or when their good deeds outweigh their bad. Does the accuser face a penalty?

    "Although you’ve killed quite a few people, you don’t need to use me, sincerely" So, people are allowed to atone insincerely? Does that mean that they can massacre a city for fun, use the Sinner Atonement Machine insincerely and thus become immune to the Prayers Trial Machine?

    I wonder why the Nine aren't dead already. They've got tons and tons of victims that would want to seek revenge against them.

    “I’ll pay you 1000 credits for every drop of blood” Doesn't that just encourage him to fail a few times?

    “Ah, wait a minute, do you want to be a policeman?” That sounds like a terrible idea for him. He'll definitely make way less money and have far less freedom.

    I get that the Anger Appeasing Machine is a joke, but its existence feels counterproductive to the various machines' implied purposes.

    Yes. Yes. And no, because if they can stand living in a world that's literally collapsing around themselves every day, they can stand the fact that there are crimes in the world and those who committed those crimes will pay the price (and they even got to vote on it)
    Well actually, not many would even know the names of the 9 heads, since like it's been said before, once they become the head, everything they want can be fulfilled by other people. Since they always make sure to clean up every loose ends (one of the families at the beginning of the novel got massacred after a deal with them was done), i'm sure those that have a grudge will only target the 9's younger generation and not the heads themselves.
    It's definitely a terrible idea for him if it weren't for the fact that having a permanent job as a police officer will benefit him more in the long run (for example, he's living in the streets right now, so he might be able to enter a dorm of the police force). There's bound to be an end to those that needs to be captured sooner or later.

    I really want people to use the Prayers Trial Machine on a bunch of those rotten noble family members. :blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead::blobdead:

    So at least the machines won't work against someone who hasn't sinned.

    Feels kind of ironic that the ones who would try first would be the nine lords when they're the ones who should be getting lynched

    I suppose it was hoping for too much to expect that Anna's death god companion might actually do its job and deal with the four hells instead of the MC being the one to save the day. Though I do have to wonder what its been doing all this time while the machines were setting up shop.
    Honestly, it wouldn't even need to be their citizens that try to kill them. It could be their own descendants, or members of other families within the Nine, or foreign powers, or those that work in the correct areas to know how to identify them to the machines.

    They’ve been on a pub crawl.:ROFLMAO: The god insisted.:ROFLMAO:

    Yep, and even had they been paranoid enough so that the public didn’t know their identities as the heads of the Nine, someone knows their names.:blobfearful:

    “Don’t worry, I’ll immediately return if the situation is too much to handle” When even the machines created by the divinities to run the place can't guarantee their ability to leave it, what makes him think that he can?

    “In the mansion is fine” Why not SW Divine Temple? It can actually move after all, which is pretty important considering the current state of the world. Or would the formations not work on the ship?
