My Disciple Died Yet Again


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The Revered Master, Yu Yan, known as the number one in the cultivation world, waited for sixteen thousand years, and finally took in a disciple. He taught her carefully, and took care of her diligently. He watched her as she slowly grew stronger as she comprehended the laws, and just as she was about to soar into prominence… she died!

Hence, he once again took in another disciple, carefully taught her, diligently took care of her, and then… she died again!

Thus, he took in another disciple, and not long after… she still died!

Yu Yan: …

Disciple: …

(Why do I always get picked up by the same person every time I reincarnate? Haaaa…)

This novel is so absolutely overrated to the point of being completely ridiculous - naturally, I do get why and what people like about it, the comedy is not half bad, and the author had at least some interesting ideas.. and sadly, that's it.

The protagonist never gets tired to lecture others with her one-sided hypocrisy, one of those typical happy-go-lucky characters that think the world can be changed with her goodie two shoe ideals. What's even more stupid, she not only rescues the person responsible for the troubles to the... more>> point where she's dying, no she also covers for him when he's flirting around with girls.. I mean, you for real sis? o.O I should add that he and some of his female companions are (in-)directly responsible for the deaths of several fellow disciples.. well, same goes for the protagonist because she did not do what had to be done. Then we have the problem that the protagonist is always emphasizing that she's a modern woman, sorry but in my world someone mature and adult of a modern era would never have such a childlike and naive view of the world, it only helps to portray her narrow-minded and utterly unrealistic behaviour in all its glory.

Readers should learn to use the terms masterpiece and superb more inflationary, do you even know how to evaluate something? The novel is neither bad nor good, but slightly above average. A filler read, nothing more and nothing less. <<less

This. is. the. best.

A little more in detail:
This is a splendid combination of comedy and story, which both had me laughing out loud several times, snicker dozens of times, and for the most part ignoring everything else that went on in my life. The way it plays with and subverts tropes while conveying a serious story is on the level of Terry Pratchett (Discworld etc.). It would probably be even more entertaining if I was more familiar with wuxia/xianxia/Whatever-I-don't-know-the-exact-difference-between-all-of-them, but even with my experience (about 10 novels,... more>> give or take), it's really, really entertaining. I do have a hundred+ mangas and a dozen or two manhuas under my belt, which helps somewhat.

What I really appreciate with the story is how the author manages to keep the story constantly advancing without dropping all light-hearted moments. Many stories that start out as comedies and evolve into serious action/drama/something have a tendency of getting ... less funny as the story advances. Not less entertaining, just a lot less light-hearted and more focused on *SERIOUS BUSINESS* all the time. Example: Rouroni Kenshin, the anime version (the manga version remains more light-hearted through it all).

By mixing lighter and heavier themes, each aspect carries so much more weight because of the sheer contrast. And it doesn't get boring. Many serious wuxia-novels suffer from the "Really good start, and then descend into repetitiveness, too-easy-to-predict-storylines and plot armor". This does not. And that is golden, with diamonds and rubies sprinkled on top of it.

A few other things I really enjoy:

1. A lack of Mary Sue in the main character. In fact, how all the characters we get to know have serious flaws, and that makes them so human. Perhaps relate-able is a better word, if it's even a word. Sorry, non-native English speaker.
There are Mary Sues in the story, and they are heavily lampshaded. (Look it up on if you don't know what this means.)

2. While almost every protagonist in wuxia/xianxia novels have plot armor, this novel subverts it having the protagonist resurrect after every death. But resurrection carries a price (time lost, different body), so it's quite different from a plot armor. She may actually die (and does), and the stakes feel higher than other novels.

3. A female protagonist that does not fall into any of the classic 'male protagonist' traps. It is so darn refreshing.

4. How fleshed out the characters are. I am bad with names and have a tendency to mess them up. Especially so when many side-characters are as three-dimensional as a sheet of paper. In this novel, the characters are really varied and often exaggerated, and it makes them all unique. Also, they do *not* possess plot armor, which makes the story more tense. Even if I don't remember all the names, they are so unique I often recall who they are after a single sentence of what they do or say.

5. While the story contains a fair bit of comedy based on misunderstanding, it never exceeded my "Oh my god, I can't watch this" embarrassment threshold. And let me tell you, it's rather low. I'd estimate the embarrassment level in the novel is on the level of Ranma 1/2.

This is my first review. I don't usually write them, because I'm lazy. This novel is just so good I have to share it. Also...

Your sister's desire!


You'll get it if you read it.

I don't like to review a series until I'm finished with it, but what the heck, I'm at Chapter 180, and this can't wait.

This is one of THE BEST Chinese light novels I've ever read. Definitely in my Top 3 favorites, along with I Shall Seal The Heavens and Douluo Dalu. If you don't like those novels, and instead you love series like MGA or ATG, maybe don't even bother reading this review... you probably won't like this.

But if you LIKE...

• A rational, hard-working, good-humored, loyal main character, who isn't... more>> arrogant or blindly bloodthirsty...
• Side characters that are well-developed and don't disappear later on...
• A story that is equal parts funny+emotional+interesting...
• Great translation quality with one dedicated translator with a rich vocabulary...

...then, READ THIS!!!

More reasons you might want to read this series:

• You're tired of repetitive Chinese light novel tropes, and you want a LN that calls them out on their BS. (broken MCs, harems, cheats, spirit guides, etc)
• You don't mind a good parody -- one that's well-written, has its own unique characters and world, but still makes funny commentaries on the ridiculousness of other light novels.
• You're looking for a female main character that isn't a Mary Sue and has a mind of her own. (Name another series where the main character reincarnates as a middle-aged village woman.)
• You like romance stories that are entertaining, but also rational. (No love at first sight or endless descriptions about how hot people are.)
• You have a sense of humor and enjoy constant jokes.

Still haven't decided to read this? Don't worry:
• Even though it's sort of a parody, it doesn't feel like fanfiction. It has its own unique and compelling storyline.
• Even though it's primarily a comedy, it also has action, romance, mystery, tragedy, and SO MANY FEELS (you will laugh, you will cry, you will cast the Great Diarrhea Art)
• Even though it seems like the chapter releases slowed down, the translator (Scrya) just came back!

If you liked anything I said above, just try it. You won't regret it.

(NOTE: I'll update this review later on.) <<less

This is comedy gold. It also plays around with the ideas of ruthless protagonists in other Xianxia/Xuanhuan novels, and scrutinizes them heavily for their flaws. It also has romance. Don’t know why that isn’t in the tags, but either way, it is an amazing novel. I recommend it to everyone. 5/5.

And remember, take some waffles with you when you decide to read it. (It’s dangerous to go alone, take this!)

Have you been missing and waiting for naive shounen style leads to infect Xianxia and proceed to mock the whole genre and its characters that are thrown into crapsack worlds and have to *gasp* make sacrifices and change their ways in order to stay alive? And how about all that while said naive shounen style MC is immortal and so can afford to die due to her naivete over and over again and not only come back, but come back stronger each time at that?! Sounds fun? At least the... more>> author apparently concedes here that stubborn naivete will kill you unless you're an immortal that comes back stronger each time you're killed but that doesn't stop him from pushing his narrative of mocking characters that are more pragmatic by necessity since they are *gasp* not immortal. It's easy to push ideals when you don't have to worry about the consequences of failing.

If you aren't sick to death of boring, cookie-cutter shounen MCs yet, then maybe, maybe this story has something to offer for you. As for me, getting through 2 arcs was an intense, torturous headache which I wouldn't willingly inflict upon even my worse enemy and I'm relieved beyond words that I'll never deal with this piece of crap ever again. <<less

A light-hearted parody poking fun at the common xianxia tropes. Having finished the raws, I can say that this has definitely been an enjoyable ride where every reoccurring character introduced has their own important roles affecting the tides of the story.

Not only that, it had a really light focus on romance, and it's so satisfying watching relationships develop between several characters. Only downside is perhaps a very slight drag in the future chapters and frustration resulting from it but other than that, it's a 5/5 for me.

Unbelievably good read, as evidenced by the high rating and glowing reviews. I could rave about almost every aspect of this novel, it is that good. However, I'll summarize the elements that especially appealed to me that haven't been reviewed to death by others:

1. This story has heart. Yes, the MC is hilarious and her reactions to her progressively more ridiculous reincarnations are the best. However, her genuine care for others are what provide the stakes for the novel and make it poignant. Because even if she reincarnates right after... more>> dying, she will be treated like a stranger by the friends and family from her previous reincarnation (with one exception). Even with the exception, her relationship is subtly changed because of the physical differences of her reincarnations and the circumstances of her deaths.

2. The MC stays true to her basic character of a modern woman. She's a mature woman who empathizes with others' pain and knows people can be redeemed, thus life is precious. She tries to fix the world because that is her job, and she is the best equipped to do so. How she thinks and speaks (and especially insults) is also logical and suitable for an educated person. Of course, her modern sensibility towards sex is also demonstrated at appropriate times for maximum comedy.

3. There is a plan. The arcs are created by the genius idea of using light novel tropes to create conflicts. For instance, the trope of an OP character. What happens if that character doesn't have the right morals to use their cheat/s responsibly? Conflict will naturally ensue when they use their powers selfishly. All of the arcs are tied together by the efforts of the MC in all her various reincarnations, while the MC tries to uncover the mysteries behind her reincarnation abilities. Even when the MC is only aware of the arc conflict, the author gives hints that something more is brewing behind the scenes.

These elements may seem super basic, but the author's approach makes them masterful. Of course, there are plenty of other superb aspects of this story that are covered in other reviews, so read on! <<less

I started reading this novel yesterday (July 1st, 2016) and I got up to chapter 51 before I ended up dropping it. Admittedly, I had skipped ahead to the last chapters of arc's 2 & 3 in order to see where this story was going. Had I not done this, I probably would have enjoyed it until the end of arc 2 and or the middle parts of arc 3.

I was looking for a Xianxia novel with a female protagonist and I wasn't entirely disappointed. Despite the fact that this... more>> is a semi-joke novel in the sense that it makes fun of other Xianxia tropes whilst having a game-element like story-line, it's still reasonably funny [in a cutesy-way] and well written [for a comedy/xianxia].

Unfortunately, I do wish that it was more xianxia-y than video game-y; indeed, the game elements are predominant. Think Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? but xianxia-esque. In short, our MC is a female game designer/GM who, after speaking with a seemingly knowledge programmer, was whisked into a xianxia world in order to prevent said world's inevitable collapse (by debugging it ~ literally). Naturally, with this premise, xianxia elements really don't need to be there; they are there for setting only ~ at its most basic level, this is a game/VR-like novel with a Xianxia setting.

If you were like me and expected a silly Xianxia novel with a female protagonist then you will only be kinda satisfied with it; after the first volume (chapter 41 or something) the veil is lifted. By volume 3, the xianxia world feels almost unnecessary.

Long story short, if you don't mind this fact then you'll likely enjoy this novel; it's not a bad read. <<less

Hilarious with actual plot that seems like it will go somewhere. Translation quality is also top notch - doesn't make you feel that reading it will make the quality of your own English drop, nor are you constantly having to fix the grammar in your head. Or maybe I just have slight grammar OCD.

Anyhow, it's one of the better chinese novels that I've read, in that it doesn't constantly bore you to death about cultivating from one level to another. When it happens it happens, but there is a... more>> surrounding plot that makes the cultivating explanations bearable. And did I mention the MC is hilarious? Her narrative makes even the most supposedly boring scenes interesting. There is also an actual point to the whole transmigration business - a reason why it's her and not any one else (and you can actually tell that the MC is a graduate in from the sciences as she sometimes uses her understanding of physics, chem and maths to make sense of things - she has a scientific logical mind), unlike many others where the MC may have transmigrated but we never find out why, her/his past in the modern world never actually makes a difference to the fantasy except make them maybe a bit more openminded - or others where protagnists somehow remember all kinds of scientific and technological processes that the average adult/teenager would most likely never have any idea about. She's definitely not a Mary Sue, but she's actually genuinely a really nice person though she might laugh at the idea. It's been a while since I've read/watched about a genuinely nice person that's relatable and not annoying or makes me want to strangle them for their naivety or foolishness.

The procession of the plot is quite unique as well (see: the various ____ she reincarnates into) and obvious tropes are hilariously lampshaded. And Master is adorable <3 <3 <3 <<less

This is a great parody of Xianxia. No, it isn't a parody of a specific series or a writers specific style, it is a complete parody of the genre in general. Not just Xianxia, but reincarnation, soul transmigration, and world with game elements as well.

Its really funny. It has performed comedy in its purest form, taking the mundane situation and giving an unexpected outcome in defiance of your previous depositions. That is comedy, creating an extraordinary outcome out of an ordinary event.

And this does it well. You will be surprised... more>> at how funny it is.

The only down part is:

Once the MC develops feelings... or rather is forced to develop feelings for her master (thanks to the overlord/god of this world), it goes kind of down hill. It comes out of nowhere, and makes you tilt you head at "why"


Other than that, this series is pretty entertaining. <<less

The story is one of the best I've read. Though it took me a long time to start reading it because of its description.

The MC is a female from Earth that suddenly found herself in the body of a villager in a Xianxia world. Things happen and she enters a Sect becoming the disciple of the strongest in the cultivation world. However when she started adventuring she died, and found out that she reincarnates every time she dies.

The MC is relatable and hilarious~~ She is a normal girl that... more>> finds killing wrong and criticizes the mindset of the usual Xianxia characters we find in other novels. The side characters all have personalities and are fleshed out.

Some scenes make you laugh out loud and some cause you to shed tears. I truly enjoy reading this and I'm addicted to it. It deserves 5 stars. <<less

Very amusing! It's a bit rare to find a female protagonist lead Xianxia, well at least for me it is lol. This one is really enjoyable to read and its the kind that most people wouldn't put down after they start reading it. I suggest giving it a try, no regrets for sure.

The story kinda goes its own way...the mc doesn't go around killing anything that offends her sight or w/e like other xianxia...she tends to stay to true to herself for the most part.

I have just finished reading the translations up to current chapter within a day, and just have to write a review to show how much I was enraptured! First of all, the story. I love this story, in which it shows how much the author actually thought out of the story instead of the current trend in which most xianxia and wuxias are having typically the same recipe.I still enjoyed them too, though but this novel brought a different kind of attraction. The story does not really on fortuitous encounters... more>> or amazing level up just to progress the plot but actual plot.

Talking about the characters, I loved the MC in which she is funny and witty. The master is also dangerously adorable, with his affection towards his disciple. ♥♥ I mean, gosh, I want a master like that too!

The downside is that, the character backgrounds were not really properly established especially the MC. Although, this may also be counted as a good point as the author did not dwell on unnecessary stuffs just to increase the chapter counts. Anyway, I absolutely recommend this novel for anyone!! <<less

One of my favorites! Earth MC dropped to Xianxia world with spiritual energy and stuff, gifted with reincarnation cheat. Whole story is from the MC's pov about the world and characters.

... more>>

MC meets boy with dark past, cheats and harems... Main character of a Xianxia novel?? Jk it's a bug. A bug if left alone will destroy the entire system (world). Btw, the ship between MC and her master has reached its destination hehehehehe


Excellent comedy and retorts and from relatable MC who is against killing. She maybe weak at first but she's got other cheats alright.

Basically whole story is about MC who dies while trying to neutralize bugs and her OP Master who picks her up every time she reincarnates. <<less

A very cute and hilarious series, probably a go-to for parodies and comedies. Best to read after you’ve tried a few wuxia series and gotten sick of the overbearing characters since knowing some cliches really helps identify exactly what MDDYA is mocking, while you’ll be nodding your head in agreement with the MC’s assessments of them.

The female lead’s personality is very spunky and relatable, and where most MCs level up through near-death experiences she does so through actually dying. While her master is a cute but powerful airhead. And the... more>> story involved her being sucked into a game to clear it of bugs (wuxia protagonists) whose overwhelming advantages (cheats) could potentially destroy the world.

Overall it’s hilarious, mixing one-liners with humorous scenarios for a well developed and unpredictable story with few weaknesses. Though I’m not sure how the other 300 chapters will play out, I’m very keen to find out. <<less

Seriously, the most hilarious xianxia parody story I ever read!

This web novel combine misunderstood comedy and xianxia setting perfectly. I especially like how the MC is a funny girl protagonist with loose mouth lol. At first, she start as naive & stupid girl. But, after died a lot, she get better and become more like able (bad ass and tyrant if i may add lol).

More over, the interaction between MC and other character is so good and funny it make me laugh very hard. For example, the interaction between... more>> MC and her Teacher is so revolting I can keep my mouth to LOL (the reverse gender bender *caugh*). And the weird thing is, every time the MC died, the story get fresh and the characters getting develop decently.

The bad is, the author assume the reader have prior knowledge about xianxia a.k.a Chinese immortal cultivator troupe. If you don’t have prior knowledge, like me as i started to read it, you will get confused easily by the setting and power level since the author give minimum xianxia exposition. But you know, I read “serious” xianxia (I Shall Seal The Heaven) together with this story which make me fill the void. Surprisingly, it make me more appreciate joke in My Disciple Died Yet Again.

Anyway, if you like misunderstand story or want to get refreshed after non stop battle in “proper” xianxia web novel, I highly recommended this story! <<less

The story is good. Both the MC and her master has their weaknesses highlighted (MC's idiocy and Yu Yan's lack of common sense) which provided the comic relief. Somehow, there are some serious matter but because of the point of view used, it's almost unnoticeable.

You know, I REALLY liked this story at first. This novel "criticizes" a great majority of the XianXia genre, in a funny and amusing way, without being haughty and mocking about it. The MC is someone we can relate with (even if you're not a girl) because of how "realistic" she acts in terms of being a modern-day person.

As the story progresses, the antagonist is characterized like a generic XianXia protagonist, with how he conveniently encounters good fortune, with every woman coming to him as if he's the only... more>> man in the world, AND like the whole damn universe is biased to pave his way all the way to the top.

Ironicallythough, throughout the story, this novel falls prey to the same "criticisms" it gives to other Xianxia protagonist. What exactly Am I talking about?? It's about how almost everything about the antagonist is "demonized", every bad action emphasized to the max, his wrongdoings exaggerated. I'm not saying I like the Antagonist, because the author basically does'nt give him any redeeming features. It just that, those things gives the feeling of "hypocrisy".

It started to feel wrong for me when one of the " evil character #1" who was one of the earlier bad guy in the story was later conveniently portrayed as a tragic martyr just to accentuate the "unfairness" of the Antagonist. I kinda hated how the Author just dramatically changed his character to make him look like a victim. Well, you can say it's one of my pet peeves when Authors do that. Several stuff like this continues to happen throughout the story, with the same theme.
However, after all I've stated, I still continue to read this story, and probably till the end. Why, you ask?? Because it's good. Simple as that. Although the things I mention still bugs me, those things are actually one of the very few weakness(in MY opinion, of course) of this novel. So if you're wondering whether to read this or not, I recommend you to read. It may not be as satisfying as others say it to be, in the end, IT IS A VERY GOOD NOVEL, hands down. <<less
