    If only the author had a better editor. So many times the story really starts chuggin and then you get to the next chapter and BANG! a big block of useless exposition. For so many chapters you can literally skim/skip the first third of the semi-redundant info dump and pay attention once people start doing stuff. It really cuts out the drag. There's a pretty good book in here if the dead weight got cut out and for the stretches where each chapter doesn't start out with its equivalent of "last time on Dragonball Z" it is a delight. In spite of its shortcomings and intermittent annoyances, I still like it and have to keep reading because robots are a man's romance.

    The amount of details is intimidating if not overwhelming! Most details are redundant and unnecessary. Not suitable for binging...

      The writer really improves his pacing as he gets further into the story. I'm on chapter 2699 and now its easily my favorite webnovel. It feels like the writer has improved 10 fold.

    Currently on chapter 2377 - Its an incredibly slow story. I feel like it will take 20,000 chapters or more to finish it, but I'm here for it. - I very much dislike the the girlfriend and the Hexers, but the author clearly plans to move away from them so, I'm willing to tough it out. - I like a lot of the subjects the the author writes about: Mechs, Will, Spirituality, the value of struggle, ect...

    Just ready GalaxyBrains comment. Best start to a novel. Got so worse that I think that Game of Thrones had a better finish than this will have. Atleast in the direction it goes right now.

      I'm still reading. I'm removing my "Do not read." mark. Its a slow story and its torture at times, but I do enjoy it.Spoiler AlertThings have improved since the MC left his girlfriend to go on an adventure in the Nyxian Gap. I expect things to return to the feminazi theme after this adventure but its been refreshing.. I expect things to improve as Gloriana loosens up, and the story moves away from the Hexers. Everything else about the story has been slow but decent.

    I've read over 2000 chapters. I thought the story was boring, and the MC was stupid. It was tolerable until the MC's gf was introduced. I was over 1200 chapters into the story when the author introduced the nightmare that became the MC's girlfriend, and it was just pure torture to read from that point forward. He waited for me to be fully invested in the story before he introduced that awful situation, and I hate him for it.

      how bad are we talking about, like explain any situation in which you got irritated by the said girlfriend or the way the mc acts with his girlfriend. I am open to spoilers as I have read this but couldn't help but sleep through most of it and can't read it anymore. You will be giving me a good reason to stop this torture.

      The characters in the story are inperfect, but it's one of the best things about the novel. Ves is selfish and vain, gloriana is a-bit of a sociopath, but thats what makes them feel so human. If they introduced the main love interest as some kind-of saint it wouldn't fit the story and they defently wouldn't be a realistic match for ves.

      The gf is from a culture of female supremacist. She constantly belittles men, and she insist that every product be made female. Her catchphrase is "women are superior." She acts like a spoiled brat 99% of the time, and she's never really contributed anything good to the MC's life other than a mild improvement to the overall performance of the MC's mech designs. I, really, hope the writer kills her off. Its a pretty good story otherwise. My only other complaint is that there's entirely too much exposition.

    Overall I would say it's a good novel...I enjoyed story....but story of CFA fallen ship streched too long for almost 200 chapters. I don't like that...I read all chapters till the end but sometimes it gets irritating to read repeat things you can skip the story on some points.

I like this one, that's why I gave it 5 stars.
The story crawl forward at a snail pace.
If you like good world building and that slow burn power building go no further.
But don't expect mech battle after mech battle, various chapters will be spent on him designing the damn thing.
The foreshadowing are so long for it's payoff that chekhov's gun might as well be a sniper at this point.
Any way this is a review not a assay.
Long story short I like it maybe you will like it to.


✔️ fresh storyline idea. It is not about reincarnation
✖️ Too details sometimes and repeated explaination
✖️ Too much details about country and feeling. Less about mech design or fight
✖️ Why MC don't use the system anymore??


A lot of people really hate this one doesn't it?
A series about life, fate, chance, mystery and mechs? A story that tries to depict a character that is flawed and unique? A near life-like depiction of a person just minding his business only to be sent to hela? A series exploring the reality of people on top (high functioning people) with a bit of esoteric influences!


Warnung Spoilers ahead!!

Made an account to write a review.

The best novel on this site until certain things happened which completly destroyed everything for me. There were some minor issues like him not using his DP to keep his Stats maxed out as much as He can. Like 2.0 is the max at first and his dexterity was at 0.8 for so long. The candies are very cheap compared to his earnings. But I think these are all nothing compared to the major fuck ups the author did. (To the author: I am sorry If this is rude to you but it is how I feel. You have my respect and admiration for building something Epic like this. It just feels like as the Story progresses you get lazier and lazier, while pumping out 3 chapters daily.)

Every problem with the novel

1. Many fillers. Like the war with the venesians was sooooooo boring to read. Many people that read this novel Skipped nearly 200 chapters because of this. Everyone feels the Same about that part of the Story.

2. Many characters which become irrelevant as the Story progresses while you constantly introduce new ones.

3. HIS PSYCHOPATHIC GIRLFRIEND. She legit cost him his apprenticeship with a Master Mech Designer. And he just said: "It's okay". She is a hardcore religious psychopath. Introducing that Character destroyed everything. That was worse than the ending to Game of Thrones. How can that happen?!?!?

4. Letting the Larkinsons and legit everyone else so what they want in his own company which he built up with his own sweat and blood. THEY SOLD PERCENTAGE OF HIS OWN SHARES BEHIND HIS BACK. Do you know how serious that is? And with No consequences.

To finish everything up. The best start of a novel. Everything to chapter 600-700 ist recommended.
After that it just goes downhill.

I am so dissapointed in the author. Sold his entire fanbase.


The mc is way too idiotic... He know that he had a good system but he didn't use it properly. He is mech designer at least use system to complete his basic knowledge on all subjects. It's 1000+ chapters but mc still knows nothing about computer science and so on topics.....the war plot with kingdom also streched too long for nothing specific in return for mc this is way too idiotic. Overall for 1000 chapters he made no progress in mech designing only 2 original mech.hahaha that's what you call idiotic.


A really great Novel. I originally came from the Background of reading wuxia and xianxia novels and got bored of them. Then I picked this Novel up and it just keeps surprising me with new Developments and fresh Ideas. Its a little bit slow paced but i think it adds to the Immersion. Overall i would recommend this Novel. It takes some time to get going but if you persist you will be rewarded.


So far so good. Highly detailed, with colossal scope. I wish to see what lies at the end of the universe. Literally spanning galaxies. Great job.


good novel, but the main character is very annoying, his personality changes his life decisions and everything about him seems very dumb, he could have done a million things to be better, he has a high intelligence but still seems to act like a dumbass.
overall the novel is good for it's genre and i do recommend reading it.


A good novel for sci-fi and mecha fans. There is at least a believable science here that the science fiction stuff makes sense (Not just the author pulling something out of a hat and calling it a day). The novel is very detailed, that sometimes it gets on my nerves that a chapter will only consist of the MC thinking of something. If you get past those then this is a very good novel. A bit slow for my taste but it picks up on the later chapters (Not as fast as I'd hope but still enough to not be bored of the slowness). There will always be something in the plot that will keep you hooked. Mecha battles is the main action here but there are also some ship battles and human battles here and there, and also some political intrigues. Romance is in the later parts and comedy is sparse. All in all, I definitely recommend this novel


Really good work so keep up with new chapters and updates and don't drop this story and hope you post soon.

Thanks for your hard work so keep up
