Sorry for being missing. I was actually quite free and there’s a number of new work showing up in NU. So, I went ahead to read them and the raws as well since I’d the time.
Unfortunately, I got sucked in and could escaped their grasps till today. Actually, I’m still itching to go ahead and read but I won’t be able to do my work if I continued doing so.
One of the culprit was The Divine Prodigal, also recently appeared in NU. I read the raws till I have no idea how far ahead I was, just right before the alien invasion which was about 2-300 chapters in, I think.
You know how all the Chinese MC had good luck, but this was actually the MC’s niche. The idea was that he needed to spend a lot – a lot of money. And he was so lucky that the world molded itself to give MC luck. His father was a wealthy tycoon that gave him money to buy anything. And MC luck could actually spread out to those close to him.
MC’s father bought land to please his son and earned lots from him. Even the MC fiancé questioned how could the MC had such luck. Talented people dropped from the sky just to land in front of him. And a lot of the luck resulted from MC’s action, without him even realizing it.
The army allowed him to do anything, built city, buy aircraft carrier, satellite, etc just because they believed in his luck. Everyone knew he was the lucky prodigal. The MC’s character is good, he’s not an asshole or anything and a number of the antagonist reformed to help him. Hey, if you’re not with him, you’re against the world. The world will change itself to screw you if you go against him. It’s always how much are you willing to bet that you could overcome his luck.
Right now, I’d reached the part where the part of the alien invasion before I managed to pull myself away. Almost everyone on Earth knew to stop themselves from going against him, but do the aliens know that? Prepare to get rekt. In Wolverine’s eternal words: “Are you feeling lucky, punk?” The writing’s so-so but I always wanted to know how his luck would solve his problems. A lot of the times, it’s the simple actions that become farfetched and became the solution.
Granted, there’s a lot of China No. 1 going on and the slightly sour taste from the MC against other countries allowed me to separate myself (Hint: It’s always against US and Japan). I’d wasted a few days on this. Give me my time back. T.T
