My Vampire System Webnovel Review
If you are wondering if My Vampire System novel is worth read. Based on my opinion, it is not.
TLDR: I am basically ranting about how this average novel is unworthy of being a top-ranking novel.
If that answer doesn’t satisfies you or you would like to know more, then keep reading.
If that answer satisfies you then don’t leave yet. There’s another question i.e. If it is not worth reading, then why it is so popular.
This post is divided into three parts:
Let’s first know some information about the novel.
My Vampire System Introduction:
“My Vampire System” is the top ranking novel on Webnovel with over 17M views. It is written by JSKManga.
It has been at the first place for months now in Webnovel.
It has a rating of 4.7 with around 3,539 ratings.
You can read the book on Webnovel.
The human Race is at war with the Vicious Dalki and when they needed help more than ever, THEY started to come forward.
Humans who had hidden in the shadows for hundreds of years, people with abilities.
Some chose to share their knowledge to the rest of the world in hopes of winning the war, while others kept their abilities to themselves.
Quinn had lost everything to the war, his home, his family and the only thing he had inherited was a crummy old book that he couldn’t even open.
But when the book had finally opened, Quinn was granted a system and his whole life was turned around.
He completed quest after quest and became more powerful, until one day the system gave him a quest he wasn’t sure he could complete.
“It is time to feed!”
“You must drink human blood within 24 hours”
“Your HP will continue to decrease until the task has been completed”
If you ask me, this novel is okay.
Based on the 62 free chapters I read, everything about this novel is average; its world-building, character-building, power system, and dialogues.
Some things I find is worse is that when reading it’s like you are reading day to day event. No emotions is felt.
I feel storytelling of My Vampire System is not exciting enough.
Next, Let’s talk about the grammar. It’s bad. Not something that you expect from the No. 1 novel.
Honestly, I was very excited to read the No. 1 novel on Webnovel. My expectations were set way above. Even novels like Release that witch, Reverend Insanity hasn’t been number 1 in Webnovel. From this, you can see my expectation level.
What did I expect: Gripping Storytelling, Mind-blowing plot, Unique main character and well developing, realistic side characters, and something separate that only top novels have- something astonishing and unexpected.
What did I get: Plain narrative and plot, generic main and side characters, grammatical errors(really?)
I won’t lie I did prefer the power system of My Vampire System and there was one side character that I liked.
But somewhere in my heart, I felt like I shouldn’t judge a novel based on 60 chapters. (Even though Webnovel is asking its readers to judge the novel with only 40 chapters. 20 free and 20 premium)
It’s a number one novel. There has to be something.
The problem was I didn’t want to read the novel, so I decided to ask the community if I should push myself to read.
If people say My Vampire System gets better at 150 chapter, I decided I will read it.
I asked the Community
I made posts on Facebook groups and Reddit asking: Is My Vampire System worth reading.
Let’s go through some of the comments on this reddit post.
Read a few chapters. It was terrible to say the least.
I’m shocked people even like it a bit. I don’t mind popcorn novels but this one is fking awful. The writing in the first 50 chapters that I could muster through is appalling for a native speaker. Terrible world building - super powers are apparently common but also martial arts? But this only started recently because aliens invaded... who are also significantly more technologically advanced? The premise is so flimsy but the author just hand waves everything. Being a vampire isn’t even a cohesive power set. I’m at my wits end that it’s so popular.
I enjoy it - currently up to date on it. I'd agree with the general sentiment though, it's not going to wow you with original ideas or crazy plot twists or really innovative writing. On the other hand, really stable updates, pacing of the story feels good, characters are generally likeable, and the world is interesting. I'd give it a read
The only reason it rank is because author literally beg for rating after every chapter and story try to monopolize on vampire hype.
It's just a really common novel, the catch is that the mc is a vampire, so we get some interesting things from that world. It's nothing amazing but it is worth the read, it picks up later on, just don't expect RI or LOTM quality.
Some Facebook Comments:
Not really xD but its a good time pass. The starting was interesting but you will get bored over time or is it just me?
It never gets bad and even at ch 492 there are still stories to tell
I hate the grammar of this novel it's like you reading mtl
Bro, let tell u the truth, the novel is great especially from the beginning. Enjoy
Here’s the link to the Reddit Post if you like to take a look.
From the replies and comments, it feels this novel is not worth reading, so the question of paying doesn’t even exist.
So, why exactly it is popular!?
Why is it so popular?
It’s not just popular. It’s number 1.
That makes a lot of difference.
Before I say my thoughts, Let’s hear from the author himself.
I think you guys got the general idea of “Why is this novel so popular?”
It’s all about the “algorithm” and pushing the chapter releases. Like the author said quantity over quality.
Another reason can be the newbies. Webnovel has grown to be the gateway to the new people who have just been introduced to the eastern novel. To those who haven’t read any eastern novels, they will surely come to Webnovel, a big company, and look at the top and surely choose My Vampire System.
This is one of the reasons that translated romance novels in the Webnovel are trash yet popular. Here’s an article I wrote on romance novels:
If you still have doubts on whether should you read this novel or not.
How about reading the free chapters and then decide whether you want to read further.
You can read the book on Webnovel.
Ultimately, it’s all depends on your taste.
And we can come to conclusion that Webnovel’s ranking system has become trash.
Thanks for reading.
This is purely my opinion on the My Vampire System web novel. The main reason I wrote this post is that My Vampire System has the number one ranking. I think I set my expectations way above but the result was very different.
Like I said in “Conclusion” you can read the novel and try it out yourself and if it suits your taste, then read.
No hate is intended towards anyone.
