Great Demon King


Written by Ni Cang Tian (逆蒼天)


Custom synopsis from etvolare:

If I don’t die… I swear I will act on all my evil thoughts.

Not exactly everyone’s typical thought when they’re about to die. What will a cowardly young man do when reincarnated with the evil powers to redefine his destiny? Can the natural kindness of human nature triumph over evil? Will he become the cold blooded demon king of legend, or will he forge his own path and rain down another kind of terror?


Original synopsis:

A kind, cowardly young man received evil powers to redefine his destiny when he reincarnated. As he changed his fate, his personality began to shift as well. He started to become strong, cold and even bloodthirsty!

    Great novel, wish there were more chapters 🙁 They run out too quickly!

  • belegorn

    Illustrations? I want to know how much a beauty are the girls

  • skylars

    One of those Chinese novel where a rank just mean you are at god for someone and an ants shit for another.
    Romance is bs but still within what I can accept.
    The MC isn’t OP but make a good use of his ability and knowledge. I still call bs for what he use to evolve “Dadara”. Cause of course nobody in the world would think of such a way to refine it.
    Oreverall it’s not a masterpiece but it’s definitely good(unlike translator who are definitely gold).

    • Rando

      Well, they probably wouldn’t. The way each school of thought evolved would affect the direction of their development, after all. In fact, the basis of Han Shuo’s demon magic is completely dependent upon the use of magical yuan, isn’t it?

      Even if the ‘magical yin concentration matrix’ Han Shuo used to refine his little skeleton was discovered and used by others, as magical yuan is needed in the first place to activate it, they’d only be able to superficially copy the ritual.

    • etvolare

      Thanks for the kind words for me. 😀 This was the author’s first work, so things may not be as refined as other authors’ later works. It definitely shows the writing at least.

  • Kill joyy

    It goes beyond 70 but no links unless you go throw ch 70.

  • Valhieru

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Out of curiosity, I have some technical questions concerning the translation, namely, how you approach to translating “sounds”? My point is that, so far I have seen in the translation, phrases such as “metallic sound” while in Raws is, ” “铿锵”一声金戈声,” what is seems to be a particular “sound”, and I am curious if this is a normal way of translation (I do not know Chinese so well ;p)

    • etvolare

      Absolutely, the “铿锵” part is the actual sound, very similar to bang! Poof! Whoosh! That sort of thing. Here, it describes the sound of metal crashing against the ground. Since I felt that “kengqiang” (the actual pinyin) wouldn’t make much sense to the average reader, I opted to leave that out and just go for “metallic sound”.
