The Devilish Genius of Time and Effort. That Cheating Bastard. Idiot Savant. A man known by countless names in the Three Realms, one who collected every treasure, every ancient art, whose Dao of 'Accumulation' made him the richest and most hated person even amongst the Eternal Emperors.

The strongest Transcendent, the one envied by all beneath the heavens. After breaking past the bounds of existence, he-

"I'm heading home."

"W-Wait! Master!"

-Promptly packed his bags and returned to Earth.

A story about a laidback overpowered guy who underestimated how hard it is to be abnormal in a normal world and gets swept up into the flow too quickly... And also ended up opening an idol agency.

Thus begins the tale of John Smith and his daily adventures back on Earth.

    made an account for this, Very nice, even if I usually don't like cultivation stories, the interaction John has with the world he found him self in is hella interesting. Keep it up!

    Where do I begin.... the best description I can think of is that this is a rollercoaster of a ride.

    First of all, the writing quality. It is definitely one of the best novels I've read in terms of quality and quantity. The many different ways of writing style used in this story makes it very addicting and makes for a unique experience for both veterans and newbie readers alike.

    Secondly, the characters. I'll be honest with you. I'm still in shock as to how tf the author is keeping up their upload schedule with how good and well designed the characters are. If you compare some of the characters from their introduction to newer chapters, you can see the difference in how they acts and thinks. The character development is insane and their interactions are great, especially since the readers knows more than the characters themselves.

    Thirdly, the world. It's currently limited to Japan, the other world and a small amount of interaction between chat from other countries and the vtubers. It's not really a problem but I do have a small nagging question about countries's reactions to John's technologies etc.

    Fourth, the plot. Oh boy, this is a really complicated one. The fluffs are great. I'll be honest, the fluffs and the vtuber chapters are the most enjoyable part of this story but without the drama, the events that surrounds John, it wouldn't be as enjoyable. For those complaining about the drama, the sad stuff, yada yada, do remember that the parts you enjoy, such as when Alphy streams minecraft and dies a bunch of time would not be as good if there was a lack of angst. Though I do hope the author tone down on those, since it would push a few people away from the story. But all in all, it's really good. 

    In conclusion and as Tldr, I recommend this story to anyone who likes a balance between fluff, comedy, angst and character development.

    One of the best this site platform had to offer. Isn't angst-inducing, but more of a lighthearted family slice-of-life. Don't be goaded by the synopsis. It's not full-xianxia or cultivation power leveling, but Mr. John's return to his earthly life, and his try on idol-making and dealing with karma and family. Cuz it's a damn rare slice-of-life.

    A very relaxing read that had me binging throughout all the chapters. Read especially for those who want to taste something different aside from usual cultivation troupes.

    This is my opinion.

    Just like a chief making delicious gourmet food for your taste buds and stomach. This story that Happy Vain Glory is writing is a delicious meal for the mind and eyes.

    It is quite a refreshing story.

    It was good up until the author forced a frustrating drama. I thought this was supposed to be lighthearted. This is the kind of authors I hate. Forcing unnecessary drama. It was great until that point.
