Original Synopsis:

Zhang Ye was originally a mundane college graduate, cursed with below average looks and height but with aspiring dreams of becoming famous. However one day, he woke up and suddenly found himself in a parallel world!

In this new world, most things were similar to his previous world but there existed subtle differences, be it: brands, celebrities or even famous works!

Armed with the knowledge of his previous world and a heaven-defying Game Ring that gives him magical items, stats and skills, Zhang Ye embarks on a journey to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a celebrity.

Follow Zhang Ye as he takes the new world by storm, one plagiarized piece at a time, to hilarious reactions!

70 thoughts on “I’m Really a Superstar (我真是大明星) – Index” - NO SPOILERS

    1. Sovereign of all the realms Grandfather of 9 Mountain and Seas Dao Protector ofAlchemy, Harem lord, Face smacking Zhang's bro, Paragon Warlock of the mothaf***in Magus world, "Reverend Monkey butt"

      For me, it’s the best among the they take place in modern times.
      Pros :
      COMEDY! main selling point here. Totally new scenarios that generates comedy here. Very fresh and much different from typical models in this aspect.

      FACE SMACKING! Mc just smacks down all skeptics in an epic way,! And it happens too often. It makes you feel very satisfied and sometimes cheer up for the way he comes back.

      STORY! i like how the author executed the common vr game type story in a unique way. The writing is is unsual,yet typical,amateurish sometimes yet gripping. It’s different from other game type novels.Though it makes you anticipate what upgrades the mc gets and how op be becomes, the main story comes from the interaction of the characters and other day to day situations. You get to see the office politics, some friendly Co workers, ,and as mc switches many jobs we see Inside working of many fields and their interactions. There are a lot characters and although many seem to be shallow, some are well defined . it works well for this kind of story. It’s like they’re your next door people, co workers, you know what kind of people they are, how they behave and express themselves . You don’t need their back stories.

      The transaltors do an amazing job here. The story is basically in modern china. It has lots of Elements of modern chinese literature, chinese movies, tv shows, books, etc and lot of current stuff going on in China. I never heard of any of those. But the best thing is that CK and legge do such a job that i never had a problem understanding any of those things. Be it the poetry or the word play or inside Jokes, there are many things which can easily get lost in the translation but they have done their best to convey it and i got most of it.

      And there’s kinda small Harem and slow developing romance for those who like it. And some mature chapters

      REPETITIVE! after some acrs, though the events are different, it usually the same sequence of mc being supressed and then he makes an unbelievable come back.

      Some racism by the author. Pettiness of the mc, but that’s how he is.

      Simply put , it has all the good elements of typical chinese novels like a hardworking mc, the excitement , powerups, new skills,the satisfying feeling of overcoming enemies and turning the tides, comedy, but all this in a modern world and normal situations. I love it. I recommend people to read it.

      1. Famous broadcaster, famous writer, famous musician, famous host, famous advertiser, airplane hijacking hero, taiji fist master, professional korean insulter, famous crosstalker, most wanted hacker, I am Face Smacking Zhang!!!

        What a good name you have there.

    2. A fantastically built up tale that doesn’t forget to bring even minor antagonists or family members back into the story. While it can be a little heavy on Zhang Ye’s “nationalistic youth” side the story certainly doesn’t shy away from scolding seemingly every aspect of Chinese society as well. Doesn’t seem anti- West as of the currently translated chapters and the sheer absurdity of the story as a whole makes it easy to gloss over some of the weak points if you binge it!

      GREAT READ!!!!

    3. I’m already in chapter 500 or something. i still can tolerate all this racism and all this talks about china being the most supreme country in the world but what i cannot tolerate is this thing called “chinese censorshit”. Come on people we are already in the 21st century, even an 11 year old kid knows what sex is and tjen there is this china……. 👎👎👎NOT WORTH THE READ

  1. I don’t understand how this book could be here,As a chinese, i really don’t like the book.Let’s hope the author is cheering. it’s hard to translate this book.

  2. Interesting novel to take a break from the typical wuxia seen. There’s plenty of reaction chapters and you quickly get absorbed in reading this. I’m honestly impressed by the translation of this novel, it often references Chinese literature and poetry which I imagine would be hard to translate. I love reading this novel as it’s very light hearted, filled with constant “action,” and is updated daily. Warning though, it is repetitive in nature.

    My main complaint about this novel, which wasn’t very apparent to me until recently, is how head strong the MC is at times and how racist some arcs are such as the current arc (Whichever chapter 559 is on). There’s numerous occasions where the situation would have been resolved if MC just simply apologized, but he’s always headstrong. Sometimes I agree with his decision since he was treated unjustly, other times I feel as though he’s just being petty. As for the racism thing, I think the author portrays many ethnic groups in a bad light. (Spoiler: The current arc has Japanese students visiting China and they’re portrayed in a horrible light. From personal experience, I think most Japanese international students are so easy going and apologetic. I can’t imagine them acting as they appear in the novels. Especially with how timid Japanese people tend to be — then again, this is based off of personal experience)
    While MC’s racism is explained in him being a beijinger (I think?), I personally find that kind of stupid. Overall though, I just power through these tidbits and casually enjoy the novel. I highly suggest as a casual read purely for entertainment. Don’t read this series with any expectations whatsoever.

    1. You the right the Author is racist and portrays other ethnic groups in a really bad light …….but i read it improves later on as a result of backlash from readers ……….

    2. The author is not racist (superiority of a race) but nationalist (superiority of the country and nation).

      I don’t excuse anything but the MC is representative of the young Chinese generation, that’s why I find this novel interesting.

      China has a lot of bad beef with Japan and has a complex of inferiority with the west (most of all with the US) and you can feel it in this novel.

      By reading this novel you can have a glimpse of the mindset of young chinese and that’s really valuable.

  3. I’m Really a SuperStar is really nice novel also a comedy based novel. (Explains some history of china itself)
    **MC……. Zhang Ye
    **See how an author writes about a young man struggling to the to and also some time forgets he his writing a non-fantasy based novel
    **Watch the meteoric rise of a low end piped ass young man through a (sort of) lottery Game
    **See is Face slapping Prowess
    **His Inability to live a simple life…… Without Stirring up Trouble or Trouble coming his way
    **His ability to perform everything possible except properly get a girl for himself
    **And see PLAGIARISM AT ITS UTMOST PEAK!!!!!!!!!
    **(P.S: No matter how it looks the MC is a leecher and a Racist so be prepared…………)

    Overall the novel is very unique and different from the norm apparently this isn’t the only type of chinese novel like this only this is one of the first being translated..

  4. actualy idk how to review a book beside my english was bad, but when you ask me why you must read this novel ?? at first i, my self to tell you the truth already saw this novel on another site for a very long long ago, back then i did not pay attention to this novel cz i think what is good about this novel ?(b4 i read)
    and then when this novel apear here… out of curiousity(actualy i hv nothing to read on that day) i give it a try, my first reaction was…
    ….until chapter 558(it take me a few day)
    what a unique and a good novel (out of it racistm etc etc)

    so guys u must “TRY THIS ONE !!”

  5. I’m Really a Superstar (IRAS) is a unique novel out of all the translated novels here in Wuxiaworld or previously hosted in Gravity Tales. It’s a novel about LITERATURE. I was not able to imagine that literature could be promoted using comedy, fantasy, and martial arts. The concept of a “game world” is even integrated in the story, The Main Character (MC), Zhang Ye, can buy consumable items, skill books, and enhancements from a shop and even an inventory to store those things. To add, his way of getting all these perks is connected to his reputation that he earns whenever someone approves or admires his actions.

    The story is all about him struggling to become famous at the cost of almost ANYTHING. From that, he would learn and do A LOT of things you can’t possible imagine someone doing. However, his talents are still within the realm of human understanding and capability; only that all of it cannot be done by a single person in real life. He will show you how to fight for your country and especially fight for yourself. He will smack your face so hard that you would wake you up from the constant stupor of your life. If you want to have an awakening, read this novel at your own risk!

  6. What can i say?

    My large Saber is again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again again unable to endure the thirst!!!

  7. i love/hate this story (much more love than hate though)!!
    its comedy is top notch and has plenty of satisfying moments (all that face-smacking LOL)
    the downside is that often the setups for the face-smacking are absurd and forced and when it comes to romance, well, it’s both bad and censored (this last bit made me rage quit a few times, but after a while i came back)
    all in all i’d consider it good to very good, not great because of some very hard to swallow bits (ie 14yo mentality when it comes to s3x and the incomplete chapters because of censorship)

  8. IRAS is a very different novel from a lot of the stories that I’ve read on WW and GT. A lot of the reviews already on here already sum up a lot of this novel. I will however say that as a reader in the “audience”, I do find the main character’s lack of situational and self awareness is quite unpleasant. As potatoesxd put it, I find that there are quite a few situations that could have been resolved if the MC took a step back, and exercised diplomacy, instead of his bull headed stubborness. In this area, Zhang Ye, the MC as of chapter 560, has not shown any growth or development.

    Misogyny / rape culture:
    Without spoiling it, the author puts the MC in situations where he ends up fondling / touching a woman, without her permission. He keeps “taking advantage of her shamelessly”, only to be briefly admonished for it. This goes on for quite a bit, and the author chalks it up to business as usual. It’s quite unbelievable to me that anyone would think such behavior is okay when a woman explicitly tells you to stop touching them, and I find it even more unbelievable that the MC gets away with it and not being punished for it.

    That being said, there’s some very entertaining elements to the story as well. It’s a casual read for sure. I often catch myself wondering why the MC doesn’t take advantage of his “abilities” more, but it’s clear the author doesn’t share that sentiment.

  9. Its a good casual read but has really bad racism. I read the normal arc and skip all the racist arc like the current one. Gonna wait till it end and continue after that. Romance in here is total garbage so don’t read into this expecting any good romance. MC is a total d*ck so you either love him or hate him. I give it a 6.5 out of 10.

  10. This novels is good mingled with extremely bad. The protagonist is a piece of shit. But at times you feel like giving him a second chance. And each time you become more and more disappointed. You can ignore everything I said and give it a chance, I’m just writing this to put a small break on the hype of this novel. Expect an extremely biased protagonist, that is capable of showing the biggest hypocrisy since Judas, gaining fame for things done by others, molesting women like there is no tomorrow, insulting people like an emperor. The worst thing is sadly not any of these points. If it was only one of this, you could just leave it alone. But no, the worst thing about this novel is a trait of our protagonist, or more exactly his nationalistic pride, which also created an exemplary role model for Hitler, as his racism went through the roof.

  11. Well what is to be said is said by the all comments above, personally I loved this novel, specially the face smacking, the DRIVING of aeroplane, comedy (even though some have slightly high literary standatrds) and now I have a slight hate for it due to authors love towards Racism (I hope no Koreans, Americans and Japanese are not reading this novel + more countries to come).
    While the author uses many historical facts for plagiarism I wonder whether the author learned anything from history that Just a spark is enough to instigate a war (WW3).
    I think he likes to erect a wall around his house and make the enemy out of his neighbours.
    Translator and the editor great work thank you for the regular releases and keep it up.

  12. What can i say that doesn’t have already being said?
    It is a interesting novel, the plot is just pure comedy and the author doesn’t attempt to explain the share silliness of the world, BUT!!! you came here for the fun and guess what, it delivers.
    The MC is a petty nationalistic youth who has PLENTY of shortcomings and you cannot help but cheer him on his journey to stardom, one plagiary at every step to it.
    So come read this NOW and enjoy the sheer awesomeness of Zhang Ye and his quest to celebrity kingdom where is plenty of bitch-slapping saber inducing manliness.
    Warning!: This may incite some people to scold everything and everyone just because. 🙂

  13. I will try to be as objective and concise as possible.

    I’m Really a Superstar written by 尝谕 (Chang Yu) and translated by Legge & CKtalon is a novel depicting our protagonist(Zhang Ye) activate a game-like interface resetting the culture of our world as we know it back to a theoretical zero resulting in a similar but different sets of events and views on all levels of culture. From literature to music to even mathematics, Zhang Ye uses his knowledge of our world’s culture to truly create his own path to Stardom.

    The storyline spans common day China as situations involving extra helpings of face smacking and crazy shenanigans occurring on a daily basis. Zhang Ye is a red hot fiery individual ready to take on the world and anyone in his way to stop him from becoming the greatest superstar ever.

    The story uses common tropes to set up nigh impossible situations to help progress the plotline beyond many figurative points of no return. Only for Zhang Ye to swoop in with Deus ex machina often in forms of poems, game like abilities, and luck to narrowly save the day and often his own skin. Oddly enough, the injustices appropriated by a multitude of antagonists are only satisfied when Zhang Ye rides in on his magical pony with a heavy hand ready for face smacking.

    While the story provides heavy levels of entertainment from injustices being righted and Zhang Ye proofing his worth, the shallow depth of the novel is easily found. The author,尝谕 (Chang Yu), wrote Zhang Ye with no true motive for actually wanting to become a Superstar. He seems to skirt around the ‘why’ as much a mother skirts around how babies are made to their young children.

    Zhang Ye often described as ugly and unattractive has a very awkward way with the women, even to go so far to say a perverse way of acting and thinking while in their company. Romance is a sore spot for readers of this novel and for good reason. Women in the novel are often forgotten, used, and tossed to the side when the plotline has no room for them. Large amounts of chapters were rewritten and redacted purely because of their perverse nature. Completely differing when compared to the face smacking hero we come to love in the majority of the novel.

    A certain level of propaganda could be said to enjoy the company of Zhang Ye. As a nationalist, Zhang Ye seems to have a raging desire to show his pride for his homeland even in situations where he is in the wrong. Some of his actions at times almost seem like blatant racism. It could be said the author never expected his novel to be translated into English and as such did not write with other nations in mind.

    Overall, I’m Really a Superstar is a novel that despite its various issues when considered by a foreign audience, is a dangerously addicting novel using wit, justice, and a heavy hand of face smacking to enrapture those willing to start at chapter one. I recommend this novel for those who would dare to see how the pen can be stronger than the sword.

    Thank You Legge & CKtalon for being amazing translators without you both we would not know the face smacking king, Zhang Ye.

  14. I like the story. It has some well thought out parts. One of the things I like is that the character gets things and feels they’re useless and it can take quite awhile for them to show value. This is so much better than, situation occurs > gets required thing to resolve problem immediately. Even in a scenario where there this does happen, the character uses things (lucky bead) to semi explain it so the suspension of disbelief isn’t completely destroyed.

    I read MGA, LLS, and ATG mostly so this is a nice change of pace.

  15. If you want to read a story where the MC always loves troubles, hates peaces, has scolding others as hobby, is an *sshole, pervert, but kindhearted, then you’ve found the right novel, IRAS. hahaha
    my rate: 9.0/10 because I like this novel so much. not 10 because nothing is perfect in the world.
    Of course, this novel also has many good points you can learn like never underestimate or look down other people, respect others if you want to be respected, etc.
    Note: when you read this novel, you have to remember that it’s created by Chinese author and targeted for Chinese readers before it is translated to English by CKTalon and Legge, so no need to be *sshole just because the author describes China is better than other countries especially when the MC scolds other countries (which maybe sounds racist). Besides, actually there is always strong reason when the MC decide to use his wicked mouth to scold or make troubles with his “enemies”.
    My advice: just read, enjoy, laugh and you will be happy. (maybe)
    ok, that’s my review till latest chapter: 563.

  16. At first when you read the novel it hooks you in cause it’s a change of pace from the usual cave dwelling martial artist who goes around beating up and killing people then going back to pop some pills and sit in an empty cave while he levels up his power. In IRAS you could say it has a similar feel, instead of cave dwelling he is in his apartment on the computer to ponder how to raise his status on chinese celebrity rankings. Instead of popping pills or unique weapons he is using his special power/ability to gain unique items to help him raise up in the rankings. Instead of killing people he just abuses them with his words to make them submit.

    But after you get so far in the novel its all the same song and dance and wash, rinse, repeat cycle and it then starts to get bland with a few moments that keep you reading but makes you slightly lose interest. But since you invest the time to read it you still go back to it and skim though it to see if anything develops.

    The MC at times you want to cheer for him and then at times you feel he needs to just shut up, stop or move on. He is at times perverted like a teenage boy and as lecherous as a really old man. The scenes in the novel that involve i guess adult type themes are rather stupid and boring and all you want to do to skim though the stuff to get to the actual story cause it makes the MC in that grey area of being a border line rapist, all he is missing are some roofies.

    The author uses mainly poetry to try and push the MC into being a world renowned celebrity. When you first read the novel you think poetry would mainly just be a catalyst to get the MC on his feet but as you start reading more and more chapters you find that this is going to be the main heavy focus. Out of all the things the MC could be using to propel himself into being a top celeb or renowned person they choose poetry.

    In my opinion i think poetry is just a way for the author to find a easy way out to make his character count shoot up without having to actually put story line in. So basically fluff material he does not have to put much thought or effort into. Also his favorite word count character is probably saber bro cause if you notice the Thirst word count becomes more and more every time you see this character pop up in the chapters.

    All and all the novel I think it is a OK read specially the first 200 to 300 chapters that suck you in, but after that you will slowly start to not care when the next chapter come out and just read it when you want to read it. i stopped reading about 120 chapters ago and figure i would just skim though the chapters when i am bored in hopes for something interesting to pop up. But if your into poetry then this is the novel for you.

  17. The concept is quite different from the rest of the novels.
    The story takes place in a contemporary but parallel China, we follow an MC who wants to be a superstar. Thanks to a tool that gives him power up and boost he makes a name for himself.
    The MC is arrogant, shameless, nationalist but most of all hilarious and we take a lot of pleasure to follow his deeds.

    This novel is a divertissement but also a way to better understand the young Chinese generation: – individualist, thirsty for achievement and glory (comparable with the west)
    – but much more nationalist, very competitive with the west, Korea and Japan
    – the importance of seniority and hierarchy.
    – a family system a little different
    – a little touch of communism but not much
    – the censure

    If you know little about China you will learn a lot (literature, poetry ect…)

    Not my favorite novel but still one of the best.

    1. I hope that young chinese generation is not that way, people say that racism and nationalism is different but for me is just the same, i cant stand people that believe are more important than other just because nation, hierarchy or seniority, that competition that u read in the novel is a example of why there still war and conflict, the people have a lot of division: continent (comments like asian all look the same) > country (i hate koreans) > city (Beijin is better than…) > College> sex (woman or man) > hobbies (i like that team ur like other team). We have enough problem with division, and this novel justify these divisions and make seen as positive, justifying it as pride. Chinese, Japonese, korean… talk about pride as something good but in all novel i read so far and in real life is just a problem, is something that is 99% harmful and 1% benefical.

  18. A very different story.
    Positives: You get to learn a lot & come across plenty of good poems.
    Negatives: Face smacking everywhere, communism.

    Go into this for the culture, of course, there will be things we don’t like but its good enough to overlook them.

  19. PRO: A very interesting story read 550ish chapters in one swoop, very fluent and exciting. I learned many things about chinese literature and other cultural things which I wasnt interested in, but endedup searching for them without noticing. There are times where author messes up stuff which is also funny.

    CON: After some point the whole story becomes sooooo repetitive, and over patriotic. OK I can understand it at some point, but too much political stuff for my taste. I ended up skipping most of the “comments” parts in the story and I dont think I missed anything, most of the comments are the same anyways, as the MC does the same pattern all the time.
    The story just repeats the same pattern:
    1-Goes to place X
    2-Does Y which no one can
    3-Gets exposure
    4-Becomes forced to do something that scolds someone
    5-Gets banned/kicked/arrested
    6-Public opinion
    8-Chummy times (no sex) with ladies (after some point reader thinks is this a rom-com/harem? then that part gets cencored aswell!)
    9-Publish something

    Well, I think its actually really interesting and worth to be casually read. Dont read all of them at once it gets really boring.

  20. IRS seems like a sci-fi novel with augmented reality concept turned real, which has a MC who make people love/hate him. IRS has a very interesting and fresh concept compared to other light/web novels I have read. It develops slowly, but it gets more interesting later on. I would definitely recommend IRS to those who enjoy reading about a despicable yet moral MC striving towards success.

  21. As a new reader,my second WN in wuxiaworld is IRAS..I enjoyed it at the start and startled as the story progressed,in the sense it’s a bit biased and so skewed towards Chinese (I am from India)..But I thought what the hell and started treating it just as a story from another world(same as MC)and started enjoying the literature and poems of Chinese and actually got to know a bit about entertainment circle,its rules and regulations so on and so forth…All in all I started enjoying it

  22. review…review….so
    -This novel got the game elements.
    -It shows various cultures of Chinese that are REALLY interesting to learn about(like couplet,cross-talk,T.V talk shows,radio-host,a teacher that told one of the China’s Four Great Classical Novels,AND~THE~POEMS(man the poems…I really had no idea that poem could be so interesting.I think if they are used in the correct situation(?) then even poem can be note-worthy for entertainment instead of learning it from textbook or in school where we’re obliged to study it),and many more~~~~
    -The mc’s character is damn funny and sometimes there are 4th-wall break like joke too.
    -There are some mature and +18(?) part too that keeps us hook up (・ω<) .
    -There are some gaming elements.
    -There is no need to mention about the translations since it is already top-notch.
    And……just read it damn it!!(I am getting late for reading the latest released chapter.)

  23. Well, I quite like this book. There’s definitely quite a bit prejudiced and racist ideas in this book but it’s a really good casual read. And face smacking Zhang is super funny and really op. It’s kinda a typical epic effortless rise to power but is always twisted in a fresher way.

    Quite a few people have criticised this book for the MC’s bad character in the sense of his nationalist ideals. But his behaviour is sorta excusable. I wouldn’t say to not expect anything from this book because it’s really enjoyable.

    I highly recommend this for a relaxing read and encourage everyone to support the translator and the author. Like most wuxia novels, it’s selling point and failing point is opness of the MC. But it’s definitely a fun read. Please support it!!!! \(^W^)/

  24. Read it,and you will crazy about it !!!!

    There are some excellent poems、 songs on it.

    Enjoy and have fun.

    Ps : Its a long journey……….

  25. The story of a Chinese superstar hooligan. A hooligan that is great at plagiarism from another world and is entertaining while doing so.

    Read it, because it’s entertaining and fun to read it!

  26. Some say it’s racist. well it is. because the author write this novel by using the perspective of nationalist Zhang Ye. despite these problem…and the repeating useless remarks that is only used as filler, the story is really good and enjoyable.
    Just enjoy the ride guys 🙂

  27. I used the translation mode they have on google Crome to see the raws, but now I see the translator is ove 600 chapters behind, and it is a good story, but after seeing the trouble and many cliffhangers coming I will wait until the chapters reach to 680 so I can binge this arc.

  28. Great novel, great comedic moments, great writing.

    Also the novel is not racist. To the dumb shits who keep saying the author is racist. Do you realise Japan, China Korea are the same “race”? There’s not even a concept of “race” in Chinese, only people of different countries. Saying the criticism of other countries as “racism” is just whiting washing all the hundred years of slavery and ACTUAL racism that goes on in the west.

  29. I’ve read a lot of wuxia from wuxiaworld (though i just registered) and i think that this wuxia is really refreshing and well done:

    -MC who evolve with the story
    -Others characters are interesting too
    -Touch a lot of area (mainly artistic one)
    -The MC is nationalist (Not Racist) it can be hard to read those part for some people but i think that it’s a part of the identity of the MC and everyone is a little bit nationalist too (If the MC insult your country of course you won’t be happy; little thought for the Japanese and American fellow) But he is REALLY nationalist (Chinese Comunist) so i can understand your discomfort with it.

    I advice to read the first chapter (5 at least) to judge by yourself and hang on during the 500+ chapters (Nationalist part) because after it will get really better.

  30. The end of I’m Really a Superstar(How Chinese thought of this novel -Reprinted from Chinese BBS:BaiduTieba)
    This day, the old classmate Dong Shanshan to visit the mental hospital Zhang Ye.
    Zhang Ye at the moment with a towel blindfolded that he is a clown, humming chirp seems to sing.The doctor said: “The child is real poor, after the university did not find a job, it was crazy. At first, he went to the street and shouted. If you asked him why he was saying, he said he was using the Russian poems. Then he did not sleep but talked about the ghost story at the middle of the nightand sat on the bed, and his house hastened to send him here. They did not expect the condition to get worse, sometimes speak with a pile of paper, and sometimes throwing it. Sometimes nonsense that he is saying crosstalk. Sometimes writing something and sometimes writing poetries. Sometimes he play tai chi, but also often holding a sanitation aunt and shouting: “I love you”. Also said that he is a mathematician …… really poor, young. ”
    Dong Shanshan asked: “If he can still be cured? ”
    The doctor said, “Yes, according to my diagnosis, he is living in his own spiritual world, and he has made up a story himself, and when he is at the end of the story, he will be able to come out of his spiritual world.”
    Dong Shanshan said: “how long will it?”
    Doctor said: “It depends on he flood or not……”

  31. I have known about this novel for quite a while but could never really bring myself to read it, as it didn’t seem to suit my tastes and didn’t seem all that interesting. Boy was I wrong, it is a really fun read and the main charachter is pretty adorable, most of the time. The setting is certainly different from most other chinese novel I’ve read till.

  32. I’m here to comment that IRAS is my top favorite CN novel.
    Among many novel, this is the only novel that I can read again and again without
    being bored.
    Thank you translator for translating this.

  33. most people say it’s a CON he’s a nationalist… but then I thought of america and how a lot of great books also have such nationalism in it.. so I can’t take it seriously anymore 😛
