Despite the same premise of an all-powerful AI chip, The Wizard World feels less like Warlock of The Magus World, and more like A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality. Here, getting to the top is about quietly preparing, getting plans A to Z ruined, restarting plans K to Z plans, and waiting forever only for plan Z to work out... so let's just forget about plans K to Y. And that feeling certainly comes through.

That's an interesting take on powering up but definitely not the most exciting. And... more>> the pacing here seems worse than Get Lost's later novels, Mystical Journey and Way of the Devil. That's the reason why WMW is more popular than this novel despite ripping off the first arc from it. WMW is written to be more appealing--read, more exciting--to the hot-blooded core audience of power fantasy stories.

Still, I find it refreshing and more believable that the MC isn't as flashy or perfect as WMW's Leylin, falling prey to many things outside of his knowledge and control. It's not like anyone's gunning for him in particular; the world just doesn't revolve around the MC and instead marches to the beat of its own drum. That's a common theme in Get Lost's novels: the plot moving forward even as the MC does his own thing. There's a bunch of action once they meet but the resolution isn't necessarily satisfying.

There's also a greater sense of mystery about the worlds in Get Lost's novels if only because so many things seem to lead nowhere. Some might call this loose ends but on balance I find it to be more of a stylistic choice. <<less

I read almost half of the novel.

Honestly, I don't see why people rate this novel so high, many people recommended because of WMW. Although, it's a bit similar, as well totally different from WMW.

The MC of this novel, well... is a bit too much like a cannon fodder. Well, a well developed 3 dimensional cannon fodder. He's nothing special. IT totally sum up. Working for a organization he knows nothing about, get the material, satisfy his curiosity or, use it to break through. Then complaining about his loneliness, his lacking... more>> of motivation ect...

Always trying to act like a goody two shoes.

Sigh... Totally boring. if one finish this up, I'd recommend WMW. But if you finished WMW, you should totally skip this one, a total waste of time <<less

I saw people saying this book is identical to Warlock of the Magus World so I did some research. This book was actually started back in 2012 and finished by the end of 2013. Warlock of the Magus World did not start until 2015, so technically this one is not using the settings from WMW. I am not saying one copied the other, and I think they are both fun to read.

I like that the MC is not really OP, and he trained a lot with the help of... more>> the chip. He is hacking, but not like some other MCs that are born with super power or something. I doubt how long he would stay weak tho.

Update after ch23: I enjoyed it a lot actually. I think the MC reached he's limit here, and he is going to some new world. I really want to know when he is going to become a Wizard though...

Update 2: Finally... something about the Wizards. The pace of the plot was slow but steady. Enjoyed every chapter.

Update 3:

I expected the MC to become much stronger after entering the wizard school, but it did not happen. MC really did not have that much privilege

than others, he learns things faster and that's about it. Very happy with recent release speed, and the translation quality did not drop. <<less

Early chapters where good until the part where he becomes an official wizard. From that part, the story becomes dark and the MC getting more and more unfeeling. Another thing is that IMO this is not a harem nor a romance novel, so if you're picking this up for those reasons like I am, then you'll be disappointed. Better replace the romance with TRAGEDY tag because a lot of those females that had relationship with him end up dead or left hanging. The story becomes more and more ridiculous at the later part such as the MC ate elves alive to test their bloodline, the MC was sent back to a modern world, Starship Armada annihilated by the MC, and a lot more. There are also a lot of useless text such as describing side characters exaggeratedly which will be forgotten on the next chapters. Another thing is that most of the characters are meant to be forgotten except for that female lord of the nightmare world which becomes his companion at the ending.

yada yada yada WMW. It seems this novel came out first though, so I guess WMW copied this? I'm current at chapter 64 and this is waaaaay too similar to be a coincidence.

MC comes from a place that has no wizards and eventually heads off across the sea to where the wizards live/train. On the way he meets someone he gets along with but they go to diff academies, yet they still keep in contact (sorta). He ends up at a 'evil' academy that has gone down in the world, and is soon about to be involved in a losing war. He starts having s*x with a bad talented sorceress so she doesn't get sent back and he gets resources from her family in return. Oh, and he is doing pharmacy for money. Now he is essentially running away to live among mortals so he won't become involved in the war, and if WMW really copied this novel then I'm guessing the next thing to happen is that he will discover a sorcerer's vestige or something.

If anyone has read WMW then u can see they are identical from my description. If there is any difference, then it is that this is faster paced. I'm giving this a 4 instead of a 3 or 2 because if this did come out first then it shouldn't be affected by me reading warlock of the magus world first. <<less

So the story is almost 90% identical to Warlock of the Magus World in the beginning, the MC does even get the same bonus in his new life...a AI chip, he also eats stuff to higher his stats, the main difference is that he is living in his father´s castle and not on his way to a magic school, beside all that I do enjoy the novel until now and hope to see what else he will do different.

Because I read Warlock of The Magus World before this and because they are similar (very much), I'll mostly be comparing the two.

Pros:

  1. The MC doesn't rely on the chip as much as the one in WMW.
  2. The MC is more humane (if you like that)
  3. Upto this point (Chapter 103 for me), there is far less bloodshed than in WMW.
  4. The MC is quite careful when needed.
Cons:

  1. The chip is far less powerful than the A.I. Chip from WMW.
  2. The MC is more humane (I don't like that)
  3. There is less bloodshed than in WMW. (Yup, this too)
  4. The MC is stupider than the MC of WMW.

Good so far.

Small issues tho, his past life doesn't seem to matter. It seems they only used that narrative to bring in the AI chip. Also when the baron (his father) whipped to death the two guards that were with him, he felt his father's love?

The MC told those guards to leave him and then they get whipped to death for it and he's just like "eh father loves me so" that's medieval thinking, but the MC is a soul for the modern era... so wtf? Like I said... more>> his past life doesn't seem to matter at all, and his thinking is reminiscent of people living in that world. Overall the story is good, but some annoying things remain, hope they address it or it's probably a drop for me. <<less

The MC is a closet lolicon in denial at the beginning. the tags by the translator suggests he will eventually become a full lolicon.

There is a very long (50-something chapters) prologue where the MC is faffing about with the family of the dude whose corpse he body snatched before even starting to learn magic.

The MC seems to be your typical japanese highschooler isekai in terms of waifu, emotions, and morality early on, although he does seem to mellow out on it as time goes on (actually dropping his celibacy!). He... more>> also builds himself a fake harem, where he actually goes so far as faking s*x with them when they ask to have s*x with him. He is faking it so that they and their family can get benefits from his super evil but doting father without him actually laying a hand on them (why not? they are literally in love with him and asked for s*x! its not like the girls who were kidnapped by his father for his harem are the ones asking for s*x, not touching those is understandable but those don't even ask).

Also, the MC sees how much the father of the corpse he bodysnatched loves him. And immediately starts loving him unconditionally as well. Despite the fact that he is horrendously evil and everyone hates him and for good reasons for all of them. Anyone from earth should be utterly horrified at the pure unadulterated Evil that is Father.

Also, the author writes a lot of combat scenes and he is really really bad at them. They are often quite moronic and make no goddamn sense. For example, the MC is shooting arrows at a dozen enemies killing one of them per shot with his cheat aimbot, then bam, he is hit by a crossbow bolt! surprise, he didn't notice that half the cavalry he is shooting at stopped their horses, drew out crossbows from their ass, knocked them, and shot back at him because... reasons? it's secretly a turn based game?

Or he is fighting an enemy who is much much slower than him in melee. suddenly the enemy jumps backwards to put in distance between them, reaches into his satchel, draws and throws 3 knives, this entire thing was done "quicker than the MC could react". what the f**k is this bullsh*t? MC has twice his agi and earlier we have seen that the result of having 2x the agility means he moves faster than the enemy can see! yet suddenly its the enemy's turn so he does all those immersion breaking actions.

I am dead serious when I say that I think the author played out the battles in DnD until he got what he wanted.

Frankly the godawful and completely random and senseless combat is likely going to be what makes me drop this series.

If you want something similar, try "Warlock of the Magus World", "Age of Adepts", "Throne of Magical Arcana", or "A Sorcerer's Journey". Those are better than The Wizard World.

Warlock of the Magus world is a far better rewrite of this story by a different author. Setting is very similar, it is what this could have been. The MC leaves to the magic academy on chapter one, he has a consistent personality (if a bit dry). The battle make sense.

A sorcerer's journey is quite interesting because it is basically WMW but the MC has no cheat (so far. every sorcerer of average+ talent should have an innate ability that gets awoken by the testing, but he doesn't understand what his is yet; but based on what I have seen so far I do not believe it will be a cheat) nor is he a body snatcher from earth (he was born and raised in that world as a dirt poor peasant).

Throne of the arcana is actually kinda annoying. MC dies on earth and bodysnatches a boy in a world of sorcery. with a hypocritical magical church that suppresses sorcerers (any mages who are not of the church). The cheat there is pretty annoying and totally unexplainable. he just has a library in his brain for no reason.

As for age of adepts, it is the closest to WMW. MC is just a little less smart and ruthless than leylin. there are also waifu. But its unclear so far what will happen and how it will be treated. And his AI cheap is inferior to leylin's

edit: I picked it up again and this time I went up to c74 before losing steam. there was more intrigue and less fighting so it was bearable. MC still a moron and the few battles were still bad, but slightly less bad as of late; MC also is slightly less of a japanese MC now. for example a girl with hopelessly low talent recruited him to her mage family. he gets 2 wives with low talent from her family (her and her niece) and a bunch of resources for cultivation, she gets a bonus for recruited talented new blood as well as being allowed to continue attending the academy despite her failure to progress thus far. He actually started sleeping with her (but refused to even meet her niece for "reasons").

eventually I ran out of ch to read and by the time more were translated I just didn't feel like it again. <<less

This being released before WMW makes it deserve an extra star! Also the insane plagiarism pisses me off at WMW!!! Literally insane! (I'm at ch.107)

Also, although WMW was more polished due to (obviously) just refining this book, it is too typically cliche with the OP MC and plot armor. There's nothing wrong with that but reading this makes me feel like the book is better with the MC not winning simply due to quick fixes/immediate upgrades/AI. Etc cuz of Plot Armor! :)

In my opinion, having an MC with... more>> an OP AI (wmw) led that story to be more shallow. Whereas here, the MC is not perfect but the overall story is better. <<less

Unrated, but just so for you to know:

The first 10 chapters are eeriely very similar to "warlock of the magus world".

since only 10 chapters are released, i'll withold writing more, but its good to know that the first 10 chapters are very similar to another novel.

... more>> But the differences end very quickly.

What I like about the entire thing is that the MC isn't exactly OP, but learns how to compensate certain deficiencies with assistance. It isn't shown if the MC is over-reliant on the chip, but the chip is already established not to be AI, and can only compute if sufficient data is keyed in (meaning no out of the box out of ordinary "i already calculated this" moments for MC).

So far, it looks like Warlock of the Magus World is a complete copycat. I suggest everyone saying that Wizard World copied WMW to check the DATES of both novels.

What brings this down is the translation. It's just not good enough to portray the true feelings of the author. Lot of stuff reads like a children's book unfortunately.

If you like similar stories like WMW then it wouldn't hurt giving this a chance.

This is definitely one of the novels that has decent translation quality on Qi. However, I can see why WMW is better even if it copied this book. Author of WMW probably spent some time improving the plot logic and general designs, but this book was finished way before WMW started, and some of the general errors were understandable.

Problem is the update schedule... I read about the editor's personal issue, but only one chapter per week is torturing me. I enjoyed the read and I really want to see what... more>> happens next.

Also, I doubt how strong the MC will become with the power of wizard. He's so weak that he can't really do anything... <<less

It's good so far, much less reliance on the chip than WMW and the MC is definitely shown as being more humane that Leylin (at the very least, he gets sick the first time he kills someone). The story is different enough from WMW so far for it to be enjoyable, don't be turned off because it has an ai chip+magic world. Perhaps my biggest fear going forward is that cultivation will be a little too easy - even though the MC started off much weaker than a normal teenager,... more>> after like 2 months he's stronger than 2 adult males (secretly the 3rd strongest person in his territory).

Lastly, I don't know why, but I feel like this will not be a nation-founding novel even though the beginning has all the signs of one (like oppressed people, sh*tty society that the MC doesn't agree with, and the power to seemingly be able to change it). I just get the feeling like something will happen, and all the characters shown thus far will be forgotten while the MC goes out adventuring.. <<less

Read Warlock of The Magus world instead. It's written in a much more interesting manner, in fact it's clearly the superior novel in every aspect.

Granted the main character isn't as much of an asshole as (Leylin), however that's a negative in my humble opinion, he is even less colorful that his already apathetic counterpart. I'm going to assume that my antagonist fetish is speaking for me in this instance and focus on other, more relevant points.

I was looking forward to a WMW clone (or perhaps it's better to... more>> say that WMW is the clone?), but I am sorely disappointed. The praise that people give this novel over WMW is in my opinion unjustified and led by immature feelings rather than logic.

    • The interactions with supporting characters are super shallow. Despite the fact that the story follows basically the same pattern AND introduces the exact same quirks. They're just brushed over, every interaction in the 100 or so chapters was basically, just a surface level interaction. The only meaningful relationship the MC has is the bond he shares with his father.
    • Reading this novel compared to WMW feels like playing the same game on easy mode after completing it on nightmare.
    • The world isn't as well defined as I would expect it to be.
    • The Translation (or perhaps the novel itself) is extremely BASIC.

I really don't get how people claim that this starts like WMW as the two diverge immediately after the start. Sure they may share similarities and functions regarding the AI, but the main characters have completely different personalities. One tries to assist those that ask for his help while the other coldly looks out for number one.

And just that difference changes up the storytelling. Basically speaking, one of the stories reads more like an Isekai light novel (TWW) while the other reads like a Wuxia (WMW).

A few problems cripple what should be a great story.

It seems that the majority of problems come from lack of story planning.

MC new to world, adapts way to quickly, complains/notices that people use a washbin to cleans themselves.... but 20 chapters later, he has a shower just to write a shallow "boasting" scene where a girl without personality throws herself at him.

[collapse]

I love the overall style, and the plot progression. At least that much is really well done, and planned. Its the stuffing that is problematic. I will keep reading this story, and hope that the first 50 chapters "Becoming a Wizard" arc were sudo rushed by the author to get to the better story. (But, I have my doubts as he is now joining a school, and the plot will be a rehash of practically ever Xianxia out there)

Regardless, I think that these 50 chapters would have been much better extending out to 100. <<less

The Wizard World starts out interesting it really does. but there are some things that appear not necessarily out of no where but kind of. a tad jarring really.

    1. the whole dark vs light wizard thing.
      apparently both sides think themselves superior to the other in general and yet they have no problem working at the SAME SCHOOL and this is inspite of having PURE SCHOOLS and a no dark wizard policy thing up north. for example when the MC arrvives at his wizardy school there are light and dark robes walking in the same place not tearing each other apart and just being normal people. however the school is KNOWN for its dark wizards (dark robes) and has a VERY STRONG history of dark wizards. later on however you learn the dark robes view themselves as superior to the light robes and the light robes view themselves superior to the dark robes... so... WHY are they in the same school teaching and learning together? even if they are segregated based on their majors, separate wings, and the whole robe thing but why would they bother teaching in the same school if they thought themselves so superior to each other? later on if you did not catch it the first time up north there is a dark wizard genocide basically with

      dark wizard hunting squads that are funded by the schools themselves.

      an the dark robes and light robes have regularly gone to war! so WTF are they doing at the SAME SCHOOL? even if it was quitter in the south than the north its not something that both sides will just ignore because "were down south". an the dark robes are not better in the south than the light robes in the north. they may not have light wizard hunting squads but the MC sure as hell got away with murder because "haha light wizards can't do sh*t" mentality.

2. the novel tries to sale you the idea that the MC is cruel. it really does. the chapters before his wizardy school the MC executes assassins, traitors, and bandits who have surrendered and its passed off as a action of cruelty. its not cruelty though. the fastest way to get rid of a threat to your life is to kill off said threat to your life and in medieval ages you could not afford to look after every prisoner that's why the imprisoned nobles and rich were shown favored treatment because they could profit off such prisoners (one way or another). the MC however ramps up in cruelty after going to the wizard school he goes to. it is stated that because wizards live so long they become cruel and twisted people but the MC has barely lived a hundred years if that.

there is a incident where three light robe students are running away from monsters and they ran straight past the MC leaving him to deal with them by scaring them off with explosives. an apparently this is a grievous offense more so because they intentionally slowed him down. "how dare they worry about themselves and not me a dark robe wizard who has already graduated". so instead of going "well it was a life or death situation for them I might be able to let it slide" the MC goes out of his way to track the three students down and summon their teacher and punish them. He punishes them by removing one of their hands.. The MC decides that was not enough later on and blows all three up after they leave going somewhere by carriage (which pisses off their teacher who tries to secretly assassinate him later on because his had enough of the dark robe supremacy bs going on. keep in mind his not much better though.).

look if you wanted to get the point across that the MC was a jack ass you coulda had him take the hands of the two guys and turn the girl into his s*x slave because slavery is legal in the south (an he has shown no qualms about turning others into his pets/slaves). but the reason why this is jarring is because its out of no where basically. he has not had a history of being a d*ck just to be a d*ck. An this is a good bit into the novel its self.

3. the centaur thing. in the novel after going north and setting shop up he makes good friends with a "neighbor" and he finds out about the slave trade in the north. by the way slavery is illegal in the north but everyone turns a blind eye to it because schools say so and so do the high ranking wizards which brings up the question of why the hell is it illegal in the first place if literally EVERYONE is taking part in it? anyways, after failing to get what he wants he settles with a few human slaves who specialize in certain jobs and he builds them actual homes to live in and for them to work for him in. there are cooks, black smiths, etc. an twin maid girls. shortly after this he manages to acquire two white centaur girls because of his new friend. an how does he treat the centaurs? like beast literally he locks them in his basement and has them sh*t all over the floor and occasionally cleans it up and he draws blood from them for experiments. that is a very BIG AND EXTREME DIFFERENCE in treatment.

An its not because he is this human supremacist either he literally says "o since your not talking to me I guess that means your dumb beast so ill just treat you like beast namely the beast known as the horse because centaur". all because the centaurs did not talk to him. an this is inspite of earlier being told about how centaurs make such great guides and guards because of how loyal they are and centaurs being recommended to him for these things. instead of making a sign language to teach them thinking they are mute (unable to speak) he literally goes "hey... you speaking? no? okay than your just some dumb animal/beast for me to use". its implied they lost the ability to speak from some "soul" stealing magic but that in of its self is no reason to treat the centaurs as beast.

it does come out of no where and is jarring because he was repeatedly told about the centaurs prior to his meeting of the two and just decides "o you aint talking okay your just some dumb beast/animal for me to f**k and use" (an that is a thing by the way because centaurs can apparently give birth to humans and wizards have low fertility and centaurs have high fertility infact most wizards have some magic creatures blood in them if they are not inbred and treated as baby making tools for being a female wizard)

Edit: another thing is the whole AI chip. The MC never actually accomplishes anything by himself its all thanks to the AI. An the novel goes out of its way basically to remind you without the AI chip the MC is sh*t. For example when he starts selling potions his success rate despite being relatively newish at it is far higher than most MASTER potion makers because of his AI which keeps track of tempature, time, measurements, ingredients, an even when to add them to the brew. It even tells him "hey you can get bonus stats by eating this sh*t even though it will give you diaerrhia". An it "grows" with the MC, it can store magic energy and even read his DNA because apparently magic changes DNA and this plays a big roll when he starts experimentation and creating BRAND NEW magical creatures and animals.

Similarities to WMW:

  1. AI chip
  2. Rational MC
  3. Heavily Goal Driven MC
Differences to WMW:

  1. MC doesn't kill as much
  2. MC is very very veeeery forgiving (you will be surprised on later chapters)
  3. MC will only show the minimum amount of power or cards that he has in a battle (just enough to win)
The Wizard World is one of the best written novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. The exposition is on point and seldom will the author include details that won't be used later on as the story progresses. The writing depicts a... more>> vibrant yet despotic feel of the world the MC belongs to. Another unique aspect to the story is the fact that not every guy who offends him or ones that even try to murder him are locked in a "villain" status the whole novel and the same can be said with "allies" as well. The only reason I gave it a score of 3 stars is because the ending is so abrupt and hurried that it makes you feel the author got fired or bored of the story and decided to just end it. So many things were left hanging and questions unanswered. If you've read Dungeon Hunter and thought it ended too fast and badly, then this novel will definitely give you and even worse feeling. <<less

Clearly a more humane version compaired to Warlock of the Magus World so far, although an other review on this site does reveal that this is going to change later. This and also the fact that he doesn't act like an asshole getting into trouble everywhere he goes just because of his attitude, then cries about how he's been wronged like in any other Chinese novel, makes me like the MC of this novel a lot more. Then again, both these... more>> novels have the same problems and in general it's a pain to read. Warlock of the Magus World is however done by an author with superior writing skills.

Like other Chinese novels we see other hard working young people doing their best while the MC is basically mocking all of them with his unfair OP skill, it's fine that they're there, but they're just thrown in our face constantly making it seem like it's just there to make people feel either bad about them or if you're Chinese you'd probably mock them too to make yourself feel better, guess that's why they like this kind of novel. It's always about leaving everyone behind and rising up by being an asshole, it's unbearable to read, just give me something feel good, it's not like it's groundbreaking, inspirational or changes your life in any way, just a novel full of negativity for no reason whatsoever.

Enemies are also never really evil, basically just people with different opinions or beliefs, that's very modern actually, not just making everything black and white, but still.. They do sh*t the MC would have done, but because it's them it's wrong and the MC just has to have his revenge, then when he does they naturally want to do exactly the same thing, but somehow it's then fine for the MC to kill them, come the f**k on. Just stop being a f**king douche making up weak plot armor. Also because the MC isn't likeable or relateable at all I feel just as strongly for the random side characters as I do for the MC so I'm sitting here wishing I could read their story instead and let them win.

Honestly, I'd rather see a character like velvet succeed and she's a minor character there with everything involving her only filling about a chapter in total.

MC feels lonely, but does nothing but push people away from him, until some day he's just okay with being alone for no reason, sudden change in mentality after becoming an official wizard. The MC has at least a bit of personality in the beginning, this is also lost and his character becomes one dimensional, unrelateable and detestable. What seems to be an attempt to make it different than all the harem novels out there pushes it way too far in the opposite direction, to the extreme. <<less

The MC often lists reasons for not doing things, has an over supportive family without doing anything, uses cheat bio chip (WMW) quite liberally to solve all his problems rather than actually making any decisions, scenarios get thrust upon the character in a desperate attempt to follow the WMW storyline. It basically takes all the parts I like from WMW and throws them out while instead of going to the academy, goes back to his daddy... hopefully he shows a bit more initiative with his decision making.

Ed: it does get... more>> better XD <<less

Pro:

    • Not a bad main character.
    • The world is BIG, and there is a sense of mystery of what's going on, you really feel what the life of being in a world where information is slow to go around.
    • You feel like the world is older than it seems.
    • Fairly well written, not many bullsh*t enemies actually (you know, the "you're courting death!!!" types).
Con:

    • MC is a tad too bloodthirsty in his revenges, especially in later parts of the story.
    • There seems to be an overall sense of loneliness, due to many characters being way too far to interact with. Mildly depressing I guess. I hope it'll change though.
    • No real usage of modern knowledge, like many other works in the same theme.
    • The chip RPG like feature is ridiculous, it could have been done in a more organic way.
    • No romance (just personal preference here, but this feels kinda dry). And minimal friendship overshadowed by a giant give and take mentality.
