If hes being badass, Im gonna plant my own crops. If he messes with me, he will not live past next year.

Homebody Zhao Hai brought QQ Farm along in his traversal to another world and resided within the body of a fallen noble. His fief was a black land which nothing could be planted, and more importantly, he even had a peerlessly powerful fiancee, who was actually the successor of a duchy and future Grand Duchess!

Even more importantly, he is a magical and martial cripple who could not learn magic and martial arts. His crippling was very thorough.

I cant learn magic, but I have the farm. You dare attack me? Ill release bugs to eat up your rations and crops, and put pesticides and weed agents into your water sources to make your lands grow weeds. See if you dare to attack me. What? You wanna hire killers to assassinate me? Hehehe. Ill hide inside the little house in my farm and see how you can attack me. When you leave, Im gonna terminate your countrys crop productions, and then all of your people will revolt. See if you dare to kill me.

Watch how this somewhat black hearted hobo uses his QQ Farm in the world of swords and magic to become a globally known nightmarish existence.

MC is an unfortunate soul and cant even make decisions without first consulting his clan members, despite the power he (supposedly) holds. His stewards even have the audacity to make decisions that are against his will. First they tease MC about marriage then they pester him about it like overbearing aunties until going as far as decide his marriage for him,

is it. What they need is his blood, they dont see him as a person.

This has one of the worst harem among the novels Ive read. Author didnt even bother to have some ounce of chemistry between the girls and MC. They just find him awesome or kind or whatever the f*ck crap the author can think of and done, they have one conversation with MC and theyre completely smitten with him. I know this half-baked effort on writing a decent character or romance is prevalent in harem novels but I really cant help but be optimistic and have a small pinch of expectation.

The world building gets completely blasted by the author who keeps revising sh*t just cus they dont wanna end the novel, honestly this thing shouldnt even have reached a thousand chapter. A lot of information keep getting retconned, at first I thought that maybe its because this novel was passed around different translators so facts got tossed around but nah its just the author being so incompetent they cant even write their own novels lore consistently.

1.5 stars. The.5 is because the MC is literally a swiftie and that fact caught me off guard. One of his women is physically a Taylor Swift clone and that face keeps popping up my brain every time she appears.

First off this LN has 5000+ chapters. My personal opinion is that no LN should be this long. Its just gonna get repetitive with stereotypical characters appearing in different forms... sigh....

The development of story is quite slow. And in my opinion the novelty value of this new theme OP farming power wears off rather quickly. By chapter 80 it did not excite me anymore on how this farming power will evolve. But I guess its gonna be something off the charts in future (become too OP). The development of MC

more

is too lacking in imo. This LN has probably the thickest plot armor I have seen in LN since I started reading LN. The whole world building is done by author in such a way that the MCs OP farming power in secular & CULTIVATION (later on in the story) world looks relevant. This in and of itself is a thick plot armor. I have read spoliers for later chapters till chap 1000. Let me tell u this the MCs farming power basically becomes tooooooo OP and its like one stop solution to all matters. There is not much subtle politics involved like Chu wang fei or nor is there an intricate overarching story here like transcending nine heavens. You would think that in the world where MC cannot cultivate and pretty much every other f*cker out there including kids in teens are more powerful then him he would act more humbly or be more cunning in his actions but NO. That would be asking too much. By later chapters MC just becomes a tyrant MC like usual xianxias such as ATG or MGA. He kills off millions just for going against him or standing in his way. I dont have anything against that but still he CANNOT cultivate he doesnt have any strength himself and he has balls to go against powerful sects from even the higher planes.... seriously like can this LN have any more thicker plot armor.... OP farming power... seriously LOL!

Dont get enamored by the synopsis first 100-200 chapters might bring some novelty value (to me this novelty value of OP farming power was exhausted after just ch 80 but some people might find is entertaining for more chaps) because apart from this OP farming power and its one stop solutions it does not bring ANYTHING new to the table. All the other characters are standard xianxia characters incl MC....

Worth casual read if u r awaiting chaps of ur fav LN.

So this is more of a ranting review and mostly based on what I have read so far (chapter 562). Note that I dont have a lot to say that show the good parts of the story. Rather this is a long review about the bad things, which to me, is prominent throughout the story. The only things that I think is (was) good in the story:

The novel plot potential with an MC having the power of a farm-simulator (that becomes God-simulator later on) which from just that, is

more

So if you dont mind the random/illogical changes, want to kill time, and want to see the MC with the power of farm/god simulator then I recommend this since aside from all the bad things, the Farm simulator ability, with its endless potential, makes things good enough to keep on reading.

But the issue and problem I have is this is what some other people have pointed out: the author makes things redundant, inserts BS, and the story cant stay focus or is confused about what its goal is or what its suppose to be doing. The author has made the MCs farm simulator OP, its to the level thats more or the same as Tatsuya Shiba. Im fine with that but the problem is the author either: doesnt know how to introduce it properly to make the readers understand it, completely ignores it, or inserts more random BS to make the MC more OP or weak even though its unnecessary. Even now there are no EXP indicators to how many you can get with specific things its all random and by the will of the Author. Even the ranch he gets later can only be leveled up by collecting animals instead of actually raising them like an actual farming game. Also the consistent use of OTAKU OTAKU OTAKU to describe the MCs shortcomings, introverted actions, or anti-social thinking/behavior.

Yes the MC is an otaku (derogatory and degenerate type), as the author has wrote: the MC is very lazy (he doesnt manage his territory into an actual territory with a government/would rather wait for his enemies to come to him rather than clean up the problem), a scumbag (doesnt write this but his actions make him one), introvert (would rather stay in his room than socialize with real people/go to aristocratic parties), is an unproductive person who does useless/unnecessary things (too many to list), and opinion based social justice mr nice guy, etc. Basically a Otaku. But the authors lack of vocabulary and his emphasis of the MCs moral and good chinese traditional values, contradict and sugarcoat the real things going on or what the MC has done. Instead of just completely going along with the MCs developments, the author ignores the changes and keeps the MC as Nice guy Otaku who isnt a push over.

the MC spends around 3 weeks doing some trading while doing farming/leveling up his ranch and farm in the background. Even after 3 weeks the ranch and farm still havent leveled up. However by introducing 1 new animal and 3 new plants/seeds the ranch levels up 6 times and the farm 8 times respectively. Later on MC gets the power to get sea animals, a machine that can make anything (weapons, potions, etc), and all sorts of metal and the author doesnt know what to do with this. Its really obvious since he doesnt it at all or just gives a vague explanation and he makes the MC completely forget about it or forces him to never mention those abilities ever again until the author finds a illogical moment to re-mention it even if it creates plot holes.

Other than that, theres also the characters who are bland, dumb, and forcibly degraded down so that the Adam (later named Zhao Hai, his original name) looks smart or is peerless/someone that cant be messed with. The characters dont really give me any emotional attachment for them since they all are dry/monotonous and are forced into theyre characters or are changed into personalities that conflict with their original personalities when they were introduced/developed. Majority of the characters are really uninteresting and robotic for me, even Adumbs fiancee (s), family, and servant members who get frequent screen time and travel with the Adumb for 100+ chapters have NO personality or a unique trait that draws readers to them and are just there for dialogue purposes. Even later on in the story, if Adumb says he needs to meet and get advice from Grandpa Grimm/Green, after he meets with Grimm, or anyone else he meets their opinions and advice dont matter. Theyre just there to reiterate and reinforce what Adumb already decided or idiotically came up with. Personally, the only part of the story that Ive read so far that has brought any emotion to me was when they raised up the Buda family flag and let the whole continent know that they are OP AF, even though it was a sloppy transition, it was epic to see that the MC finally got something useful done. Since so far he has been giving the impression of being an idiot, doesnt know what hes doing, and other instances similar that give confusion in why this is happening when it shouldnt.

The MC tries to solve the poison issue in the swamp near his territory and encounters a blood mosquito thats a level 9 (only term used for the peak level in the continent even though there were the demons/flower girl that are higher) magic beast, and note that the MC is in the farm space so hes safe. But the issue is that his farm management staff, which lets him us magic and some farm features like space/teleportation (which is how he traveled through the poisonous swamp), is now in front of the beast. Here the MC gets paranoid that the mosquito will take it and the MC wont be able to use the staff as a coordinate point so he can use it to travel quicker (he can use birds to hold the staff to travel to some far away place, stay in his space, and save 1 month worth of travel) so, to prevent this, he decides to go outside and confront it because he assumes that insect is intelligent and can talk. Seems legit right? Even Grandpa Grimm/Green and the other people that came with him are bawling and crying since its apparently the only choice they have to let the MC, of all people, confront that magic beast that can kill a human practitioner of the same level. He couldnt just summon more eagles/animals, his undead army, or have Grimm go outside the space to communicate with it to test waters or use his farm ability to try and capture, kill, or something else entirely. No. The only choice he had was to go outside, confront it, and make peace like civil people instead of the other smarter choices that the MCs cronies could have told him instead of bawling like hes doing the most honorable and logical thing. The lvl 9 mosquito then gets brainwashed, thanks to the farms power to tame animal (s), into being servile to the MC. This also happens to the higher-than-level-9 demon flower girl. Then after some time MC gets in trouble with some families and has to run away because he apparently doesnt have the power to confront them. When in reality he doesnt have to run away and can just brainwash the other 10+ level 9 magic beasts mentioned and are in the swamp and get the problem solved. But nope author doesnt mention that and the characters who know about this dont even think of that solution. And guess what? Everyone is depressed and crying because they were forced to run away since they didnt have the power to go up against a family with five level 9s. Even though there were plenty to brainwash back at the swamp. Wow.

^This development is the starting point of completely destroying the potential of the Adumb having an epic moment of having his territorys problems fixed, getting s*aves which could have been the territorys people, and any plot devices mentioned like the Buda family secret techniques, revenge, and the original setting information that was telling you where this story was initially going to go. Now we dont know what the MC is trying to do and we get no developments in the original territory wastelands other than farming, making alcohol, and merchandise related things instead of government management/services.

Also, the MC is a hypocrite, has double standards, and instead of his depiction of being a nice, loyal, and friendly guy hes portrayed the opposite. The MC, who has destroyed thousands of acres of agriculture which will starve millions of people so that he can oppose a family and who has brainwashed intelligent magic beast to be loyal/serve him think that what the people who do things on the same level are horrible and unmoral. His fathers friend Evan who lost political power in order saved Adumbs life, gets treated as a useless side character and unimportant in Adumbs eyes, even though Evan has a great personality being honorable, treating friends well, and the only person so far who is actually SMART and has REASONING skills. But for some reason Evan gets treated poorly by Adumb. I mean Adumb who meets total strangers he just met or are in the same loose organization tells them all his secrets, trades with them more than what Evan gets, and are overall treated better than Evan. This is also a problem the Adumb has: He has a big mouth he keeps spilling all his secrets and identity when he says he isnt doing on purpose (lol) and doesnt lay low when he says to lay low; hes going covert to pass into other territories so he can go to another country. He says they have to lay low even though they Fing dont they go through the same territory that he was wanted (by the big family first mentioned) in and come out as flashy suspicious person since he did the same thing before he was wanted.

He also decides to kill a bunch of bull beastmen because they used the Cattle beastmen family as a bait in order to kill them the remnant Cattle family whom the Bull family is now enemies with and want to get rid of. Even though its a normal thing that humans do and they need to do it so the cattle family cant grow to take revenge later on, because the MC says its dishonorable, its the most vile act and which results in him killing off the bull beastmen he was just trading food, eating together, and being friends with. After that mess, he acts like he didnt do that mess and later on kill the rest of them, who later found out that the human friend they had (Adumb) was a spy who tricked them. To add more, the MC, later on develops the thought of wanting to brainwash the future s*aves (which he could have had earlier to develop his territory instead of wasting more than 1 year doing useless things which becomes useless later on for the story) and instill perfect loyalty into them the adults, the beastmen, and the children. Even though he said that the light church which has been doing the same thing are inhumane, he still wants to do the same thing along with World War II propaganda.

Another situation is when Adumb goes and has trouble again with the prominent old aristocratic family that he was suppose to have some relationship/friendship with, which originates again from the issue of his good merchandise and the family wanting to control the black magicians and him being in the way of it. So Smith, who is the 2nd heir of the family and who Adumb has friendships with, tells him that his family will send a level 9 practitioner to kill him and what solution does he have to offer? To have his Megan Fox look-a-like daughter to marry him. You have to note, Megan and Zhao Hai/Adumb have never met more than 5 times prior to this and 3 of which were them greeting to each other other or small conversations. Also Megan said that Adumb was a really boring person, uninteresting, and never understood why his other 2 fiances Taylor Swift and Meg even fell in love/like the creep. But after this situation comes to play and her mother asks Megan what she thinks about Adumb and if she was okay with marrying him, she f*cking blushes and suddenly falls in love with him. I kid you not. Even her mother is surprised and doesnt know how she fell in love or how Adumb got her to fall in love with him AND even Adumb is confused how she fell in love with him and confesses in his mind that they never interacted much or had moments to get to know each other to have the chances for love. Yeah. That. Happens. And you know what Adumb does about this situation? He accepts the damn marriage. Even when he had stated and did this said with dignity that he shall only marry those he loves and those that love him back and that he doesnt like political marriages. First he says that he only wants to marry Meg and only her, but then when chemistry with Laura (Taylor Swift) developed smoothly, and not BS like with Megan, he was still a romantic guy telling her all that lovey riajuu lines of I love both you and Meg, will treat you equally, and you can have freedom in our marriage. But with Megan, where no developments or any signs of the flag popping up, Adumb becomes an even bigger hypocrite and is now a full-on-ret*rd for choosing a political marriage so solve the issue even though he could have chosen other good choices like having the Shelly family (which is really powerful) or prince Charlie back him up. It doesnt even have to be anyone backing him up, he could just use the same methods he used with the Prucell family by sabotaging or assassinating important businesses/people. But no. We get a marriage. And you know the funny part? The clan leader of the Carchi after having a face to face talk with Smith finally realizes he is wrong, even though the author has been telling you that Smith has been sending many letters to the family and reasons with why what theyre doing is bad, but he still says he wont stop with the kill order because now his angel granddaughter, Megan, has now been betrothed to Adumb even though it all happened because he wanted to kill Adumb. Ok.

So really, this whole story has a lot of useless information, destroys its own potential, and has unnecessary developments. The author dumps a bunch of info to you that look important but never mentions it, doesnt use plot device that has been introduced, and inserts bullsh*t that shouldnt have happened giving the story too many plot holes.

And what I see from another reviewer is that even at 700+ chapters, that same BS from the author is still there. Im still at chapters 562 and I already decided to drop this because of its repetitive inconsistency and other factors where the MC is randomly doing useless things things

like being an wuxia protagonist, merchant, adventurer, etc while making relationships/friendship/money/harem members/development he doesnt instead even need instead of an actual goal of being a lord who rules the world with his armies and people rather than OP farm. I mean he STILL hasnt completely fixed his territorys, enemy and family (clan) problems that was mentioned in the beginning he just let things sit there with no progress.

I mean even after 700+ chapters, the author still does the same unnecessary things which, to me, are pretty annoying. 562 chapters with no progress in the original plot/revenge and no clue as to what the MCs goals are other than traveling around, making money (which is already useless since he has too much and doesnt even use it even though he said something like if you have money you control the world which doesnt even get processed because author logic), and getting into wuxia situations with families offending MC and families befriending him even though it was unnecessary and didnt help the story in any way other than a repetition of the same exact thing that happened 80 chapters ago.

To me, the only good thing about this web novel, besides its potential (which keeps getting bashed on by the author), is the maid character Nier.

The interesting thing about Nier, who is the maid and sister (non-blood related/not adopted) of Taylor Swift (Laura), is her character development that happens later on in the story. She is first introduced and shown as an innocent and social girl that liked to talk to people. She was especially cheerful and talked to Laura every time they were together. She even talked to the MC sociably and gave the MC the impression that she was a sweet and innocent-lovely girl. But after the Laura arc ended, this girl, for some reason, no longer existed. She was the most interesting character because: at first she was this naughty child who was naive/innocent that like to tease Laura about developing love interest that is growing between the two and that she showed an actual personality with emotion was really nice. Also the main reason why I think shes interesting is that she randomly pops up once in every few random chapters and is never mentioned again until another random sentence in a random chapter shows her name.

Its like she encountered a monster and was trapped into a field where she then gets attacked by said monster but gets saved by someone with special powers. But now because of the event, her power of existence became nearly obsolete because of the monster, and only has a few moments left before her flame of existence burns out and no one will ever remember or know that she existed. But apparently Nier has found some sort of treasure or help because, although she still has a weak presence, she hasnt disappeared and is still mentioned every now and then. But now, due to the recurring encounters, she has become entangled with other forces and powers therefore forcing her to create a new identity in order to accommodate the change.

Thus Nier turned into a torch who is treated like a ghost that pops up randomly in the story because she now fights to make a new world where people wont be victims of monsters and become Torches/Ghosts who [do not exist in this world] be. And even though she is constantly ignored by other people since she has no longer has any presence, she still serves her master/sister Laura watching her from a distance. No really, she is actually traveling together when the MC, it is shown that she doesnt talk anymore/no dialogues and can only be spotted at random chapters when her name is mentioned like really she pops out of nowhere and gets mentioned that she has been in the MCs party the whole time. Her being mentioned like that actually gives the most tension, epic, and interests to the story since I am actually being drawn to this Character who has the most amazing character development and background story.

See this is interesting because I really want to know what happened to this girl and if she became involved in something. I would like to know what her secret life outside her maid form that made her turn non-existent and anti-social. If the author were to ever make another book called Shakugan no Nier, I would read and follow that 5 star plot novel and see the story Nier the replicant.

Okay, first of all, I love the story. Not sure why there are so many bad reviews, but whatever. The only problem with the story is the fact that its over 5000 chapters long and the translation speed is nonexistent lol. If someone seriously decides to translate this series, like someone on Gravity Tales or Wuxiaworld, then I think it could be a huge success... However, with the rate of translation, its not surprising that there arent that many 5 star ratings.

On another note... Wtf is up with people on

Novelupdates rating stories based on what they read in the raws? This is a site devoted to English translations of Chinese, Japanese and Korean novels. The moment I see someone say theyve read the raws, I usually ignore their review immediately. Unless they can legitimately read in that other language and arent trying to push through total gibberish, then their review is invalid.

At first I liked the way the story was going but as the story continued it slowly became the generic MC becomes op for no reason. Another issue I have is there is so much repetition and pointless filler chapters that it gets boring to read.

Ive read several hundred chapters into the raws before dropping it in disgust. Lets ignore the fact that the Chinese raws themselves are grammatically horrible and full of repetitions.

I was initially drawn-in by the concept of a farming story. But in the end, this isnt about farming at all. The farm he brings over is more of an all-purpose brainwashing-machine, self-enhancer, poison and pest producer, you-name-it. The farming aspects become comparatively negligible, and soon enough the MC is more focused on being a necromancer/magician/whatever/God. Whenever he encounters some challenge, instead

of facing it in a clever way, he does some asspull from his farm and thats it.

Did I mention the insipid, poorly developed harem members? Theyre just there to worship how awesome and capable the MC is. Then the MC moves onto the next cardboard female. The MC himself is no better, as hes a huge hypocrite whod merrily kill other people for his own purposes, which normally Id be fine with if the story didnt keep trying to push how awesome the MC is every few paragraphs.

If you want a typical but badly-written xianxia, go ahead and read this. But dont get fooled into thinking this has anything to do with farming.

I really liked the premise of the novel which is why I began reading it in the first place. I tend to like RPGs and sim games so a novel where the MCs cheat ability was a farming sim? I was in.

I liked the concept so much that I ignored several things that normally set off alarm bells in my head. The random celebrity look-alikes were distracting but I only paused and moved

along. I did make the mistake of emotionally investing a bit in the Taylor Swift clone because she did appear to have her own personality as a smart businesswomen that is trying to establish a trade empire with the MCs help. But my s*upidity in doing that was thrown in my face soon enough. But as long as I treated the female MCs as walking and talking blowup dolls for the MC and the relationships as bad roleplaying before the crappy sex, I was fine just skimming those parts.

However, after a while, this novel basically morphs into a generic xianxia or gaming novel where the MC trains/goes on an adventure to grind levels, then kicks the asses of the current arcs villain with ever increasingly meaningless numbers.

The MC does develop the farming sim a bit, which is why I stuck around with the novel for so long, but then he just randomly decides to become a god and expand the farming sim into a world, which I was on board for except he then just forgets about it. He basically just ends up using his farming sim as a bag of holding or something though he sometimes uses the miscellaneous functions like the auto-brainwashing s*ave maker aspect of the sim. Also, the celebrity look alikes got super distracting after a while to the point where I was Oh, another onahole for the harem whenever any woman is described as looking like a specific celebrity (its a coincidence, the author insists) even when the MC doesnt show any overt interest or exchange any words with them.

Plus, at one point, the MC disguises himself with a mask to look like his previous self but I dont think the author kept track of whether the MC maintained the disguise so it was a bit weird for me to believe that women would fall in love with this dude when he couldnt even keep track of what face he was literally wearing. And cmon, an European looking dude with decent looks versus a Chinese bloke whos plain looking to Asian eyes but exotic in the eyes of a
