This novel used to be fresh, interesting and great. it was once a novel that was praised, and became very popular.
but then, 100 chapters past and it was never the same. the tone changed, and where the MC was.
well the author couldn't help it- he couldn't keep Nie Li in Glory City forever could he?
but after those great 100 chapters it slowly but steadily went downhill. the chapters would glorify the main character, which was okay at first, but soon became dogsh*t. people would offend the main... more>> character and die. it showed a perspective that told you everything that happened, not just Nie Li. it was interesting at first, but it hurts the plot as it makes everyone seem the same, and pretty stupid to boot. when Nie Li made roundabout, or stupid descisions it broke immersion as he's suppose to have lived for millions of years.

if you're going to read TDG, you'll probably enjoy the first 100 chapters. but the rest? I doubt it.
but each to their own, if you enjoy it have fun with reading a novel thatll take a few years to fully be translated, and an incomplete ending thanks to the author Mad Snail.

The translator did a good job though, so kudos to them ^-^ <<less

Like people before me said the novel only focuses on glorifying MC. Every chapter focuses on how smart MC is in his world because he has knowledge due to his soul being from future.

Most of the novels of this genre focuses on showing MC being a badass, etc and to be honest that’s fine. Chinese novels are popular for that after all. But the problem with this novel is that every chapter is dedicated to that…there are no sensible enemies. Bad guys are bad for the sake of... more>> being bad. Villains are not antagonists in any sense but one dimensional characters who exist so that MC could show his awesomeness.

The most annoying part is the romance. The main love interest is one dimensional idiot. She has no personality at all and it makes you wonder why author wants us to give a damn about the stupid pedophile love. All the other female love interest are idiots as well who fall for him due to stupid reasons ~_~ Believe me the romance in this series will kill you. <<less

I don’t really know how this is really popular. Its not even a good “new game + ” type series.

And the MC is a terrible person, not to mention the writing itself.

First of all the MC.

... more>> He is a terrible person. He is greedy as hell, while pretending to be good. He does everything out of self greed and is an extreme pragmatist.

He could careless about the people he is trying to “save”.

In fact, he believes himself to a superior person and extremely righteous, when he isn’t. Not even a bit.

Everything he does just happens to benefit the people. If he really did want to benefit them, he wouldn’t be trying to rip everyone off, and give them more knowledge to save and protect themselves, instead of hoarding it all to himself, yet he acts like he is a good guy, trying to protect everyone. The contradictions with this character are so freaking high.

And he is a f**king stalker. He stalks the girl he likes constantly. Literally. He sneaks into her house without even her permission and starts sexually harassing her. He “claims” she is his, like a piece of property, and even though he says he “gives” her freedom, and is trying to help her, but he is just chaining her down more and more, and doing everything out of selfishness. Because its not that he “likes her”, but that “she is already his”. F**k this guy. And she, mind you, is 12. Yeah, they got together when they were 20. But now, they are 12, and he, who has a 100 year old’s mindset, just comes out as a freaking pedophile.

He is arrogant as f**k, thinks everyone is beneath him, and perceives himself to be a god or something. IT doesn’t matter if he is more powerful, or knows more than everyone else. It doesn’t mean he has to act like an arrogant prick noble while everyone else is like peasant scum. He thinks everyone he does is right, and if someone does something he doesn’t like, they are evil as hell, and he has the right to punish them, like some judge.

Maybe some people like this attitude or thinks is funny. But, it just comes out as an arrogant, stalker-obsessed, self-righteous, brat.

Nothing about his character is any good.

Now for the supporting cast.

Terrible cookie cutters with no personality that are just there to be display pieces for the main character. All the female leads have absolutely zero personality aside from liking the MC, and all the male supporting cast have nothing except following the MC or being cookie cutter asshole villains (who aren’t really assholes, because they haven’t done anything yet).

And they all suffer from the “MC can do no wrong, even though he is clearly doing wrong” mentality, and don’t really do anything other than blindly following the MC.


Okay at first, then become typical xianxia cliche. He is trying to save the city from being ravaged by beasts. Thats okay. But the way it proceeds is boring. It’s just the usual xian xia stuff. Then the future plots are all about fighting stronger cultivators. Oh yeah, I forgot. He “helps” his friends, but what he is really doing is getting chess pieces he can use to fight the guy that killed him. Yeah. He literally says that why he is helping them get stronger.

World Building:

Typical. The spirit power thing is a little unique in that there are 2 forms, in some complicated cultivating style. But in the end, it just because the usual cultivating than breaking through realms stuff. They also integrate powers with demon spirits, kind of like DD, but they only get one (except him, because he is “special” >.>). Other than that, its just any other typical Xianxia novel, and nothing new is added or created. You can bet it becomes the typical “the world is actually bigger than you even realize” thing you’ve seen before. But it does promote quality of quantity, which is a seldom seen thing in Xian xia. Which I like.

Character Development:

None. Everyone is cookie cutter. Once the exposition explains the characters personality and background, it stays set forever. No one changes, nor is there any character development besides the first sentence describing the character. The MC has no development, and stays the exact same way for a long time (I read up 100+, and that is more than enough to be able to judge how good the series is going to be. If it needs more, than clearly it isn’t a good series).


Its decent. Its better than reading people scream out names and sound effects as if we are supposed to know what the hell they are doing. Its amply descriptive for their type of battles.


Have you ever read a xianxia novel before? Then you don’t need to ask when I say they are the typical cliches.


I tried to like this series. But I can’t. The main character is an absolutely terrible person that I can never like (and if you can’t like the MC, there is no point in reading anymore). The side characters are cookie cutter. The plot goes nowhere. The writing style isn’t that bad compared to other series. The world, after the initial “unique quirk”, ends up being the same rehash, so that the unique quirk ends up being pointless, as in the end, quality can bet quantity (even though in the beginning they stated quality is more important). Fighting is okay.

If you want to read a story with a bad and terrible character full of contradictions and changing character traits, with the typical harem crap, bland side characters, with decent fighting, and a more unique than others cultivation method, then this is for you.

Unfortunately, the lack of character development, terrible MC, poorly written side characters and typical plot, make this a “not worth reading”.

I give it 2/5 stars because at least it is not PMG

***This is one time the manga is better because the characters are actually given some personality, and the MC is as terrible.

*Ah, but if you haven’t read Xianxia before, then you can read this, because if you can get past the MC’s terrible character and bland supporting cast, this will be a decent read. <<less

It starts good imo, but soon the world doesn't make sense with the story that the MC lived in his first life. Add multiple minor annoyances I had with the MC and plot holes so I dropped it around chapter 200.

This series started off well. It had a decent premise, the progression was good, and the pacing was decent. Then the story and the mc’s attitude and unbeatable nature came into play.

MC experiences a rebirth/rewind after living a good many years, while using a time space artifact that allowed him to study and learn everything under the sun in a period equivalent to 1000 years. He has all of the techniques, all of the knowledge, and this becomes part of the largest plot armor imaginable. In short, he is a... more>> Mary Sue (gary stu) of epic proportions.

That may or may not be to everyone’s taste, but the clincher for me is that for a person who has returned to the past with more knowledge than needed, he acts like a petty douche with a personality no better than a preteen. Whenever something occurs, it just adds on to the layer of plot armor that it makes the story drone on as the mc and the plot become more and more tiresome to read about.

It used to be a light hearted story with some humor, then it became utter drudgery. <<less

This is the most interesting read on the site for good reason.

We already know the premise, but the real treat of the story is" how will" he complete such a grand goal. Unlike other Chinese novel predecessors, he goes about this in a realistic way. He first starts gaining a name for himself while at the same time, plotting against his enemies. While garnishing fame,he goes about building allies and hidden wealth. He does all the basics to ensuring survival of his city and the people he cares about,... more>> but then the plot thickens and then you realize there's more happening behind the scenes.

The Hero of the story isn't always thinking about survival, he still has love on his mind. What greater love is there, but the one who gave their life for yours. Surely, the hero sees the woman who gave her life for his as his "one true love". In fact, he's had hundreds of years to enforce his stubborn purist of this circumstantial love, before his second chance. So, he is realistically stubborn in his unshakable faith in his "one true love" until events lead him to recall a women who protected him as battle partner. He is shaken by such events of his past cherished partner, but makes no moves to betray the woman who gave her life for his in the past.

Special Notes Against the Other Reviewers

Ones age doesn't decide there wisdom nor how they should be treated. The MC isn't arrogant, but simply obsessed at reaching his goal. Never does he put someone down without reason... though sometimes it's not a mature reason, but even adults have there moments where they tease each other. Tell me you hadn't played a prank or teased someone then tell me how are you human?

The romance in this novel is natural and realistic.

1) Women who gave her life for him

- Initially runs away from the creep who is ogling her, but later become friends because he giving more color to her life to dull and structured. She is constantly conflicted if she loves him or just considers him a friend.

2) Cherished Partner who had his back in battle.

- Initially becomes smitten with him because he releases her from bondage that was strangling her freedom. Events build on them self from prince charming infatuation to more best friends than love.

3) Alchemy women

- The consequences of gaining power and wealth is finding love is harder. We have a Powerful independent women who longs for companionship after living years surrounded by older males who seek her what she has , and not what she is. Unfortunately, she finds someone who can be her companion, but he's far below her age, so she can only tease him of what could of been with him. <<less

MC constantly feels the need to remind us of how awesome he is in comparison to everyone else and even treats the elders as if they are fools for not being as awesome as he is. People (including the protagonist) need to keep in mind that Nie Li has had many fortuitous opportunities and has had a much, much larger lifespan than just about everyone he's met in his home city, so how does he feel the need to ridicule everyone so often? It would be like a grown man... more>> being reborn as a child and jeering at another infant for not being able to do linear algebra when it's so simple for him to do so.

Maybe it seems like I'm nitpicking, but this sort of thing happens far too often, in nearly every chapter in fact that it completely irritates me and takes me out of the immersive experience.

On that note, MC is some kind of perfect omnipotent god that always gets things his way and never suffers any relative hardships due to how amazing and incredible he is. If you guys like stories where the resident Gary Stu never faces any challenge and always wows everyone around him because of how much of a stu he is, then feel free to pick up TDG. <<less

This is actually my first Chinese Novel, I've read this because the manhua is so popular in Mangatown, but I've read many negative reviews about it, then some review have mentioned the novel I Shall Seal the Heavens as a better choice than this.

As much as I'm new to Chinese Novels, this type of series is their greatest flaw or what you call generic, if the Japanese Novels have those Pacifist Herbivore Overpowered Chick Magnet Protagonist, then Chinese have those Carnivorous chick maget OP MCs with too many... more>> power-ups, legacies, hidden items, and their characteristics being underestimated and ruthless, not to mention that most of them talks about how godly they, even though they don't deserve title.

Before, I was blind to the novel world, but I'm already enlightened to some degree that I know what is good or bad, either way I can tolerate some generic or average series as long as they have interesting premise, but I've learned that Knowledge is power, being enlightened is important and Time is precious, and I've concluded to Drop this Novel.

To make it simple, this novel is one of those Trash covered in Fake Gold, it's too attractive because of its Popularity but it's also the greatest Regret that I've done in my Novel Milestone.
Now I can't think better but Disappointment to many Chinese Novels if these Kind of Novel are on the Top Rankings, especially if their so Highly praised but doesn't deserve the Recognition. Actually I don't detest Chinese Novels, in fact I love them, but there's only One Type of Chinese novel that I avoid, it's "XUANHUAN"

Now unto the Difference of 'Xuanhuan, Xianxia, and Wuxia'
(东方玄幻 – Dōngfāng Xuánhuàn): Fictional stories centered primarily on Oriental myths, legends and fairy tails or ones that use such elements as their basis which is different to Classic Immortal Hero
(古典仙侠 – Gǔdiǎn Xiānxiá): Traditional stories about immortal heroes or Historical Martial Hero
(历史武侠 – Lìshǐ Wǔxiá): Stories mainly about martial heroes that also incorporate history to a greater extent, or stories about history that are written straightforwardly in the martial hero style and Traditional Martial Hero
(传统武侠 – Chuántǒng Wǔxiá): Stories containing traditional martial hero elements, the works by Liang-Jin-Gu (Liang Yusheng, Jin Yong and Gu Long) being representative of the genre.
But Most of the Xuanhuans are Shallow, and only few are Genuine Xuanhuan like Panlong.

Now Unto TGD, is this really bad as people says or is worth to read? well I can't judge this properly since I've DROPPED it after reading it from chapter more or less 150 chapters, as long as I can remember, It's in the time of Testing the Guardian Totems, but don't expect Biased review.

~STORY~ 2.5/10
The score was low but the characteristics of Xuanxuan element is still present, the world building was ok, but the element of where the plot revolves is unbalanced, to make it simple, the greatest in the City is none other than the Protagonist, and the outside was still a mystery, and I don't plan to read it. The Good thing in this series was there's some 'Connection' that revolves in the plot, and again, it's because the author wrote MC's awesomeness just to make a preparation for plot devices, just think of a Soldier with a decent Gun(plot devices and plot development which makes sense), who can reload(Repeat or Recycle) because of many ammo(connection made in the plot, like Achievements and Character Interaction) but can't hit the target(The Quality of the Plot)
In short this is nothing, you're like Cooking and there's a Decent Ingredients, yet it didn't taste Good. And I doubt that TGD is getting Better.
And forget about the Decent Ingredients, sometimes there's so many Plot Holes about the Past.

~Character -1~
The Biggest Downfall of the Novel, I'm not sure why is the Manhua is so popular and it's being compared to Naruto, I want to rant how good Naruto is compared to TGD, but let's be logical. Naruto has at least a decent amount of Characters, and these Characters were given depth through 'Back Story alias Fillers' and the Anime did much better(or worse) Fillers than the manga, but TGD is nothing compared to the Epic Characters of Naruto, None of them have relied to Naruto to get Stronger, they've only relied/depended on him during the hardest times which they can't Handle, and there's so many worthy Antagonist too.
Now Think Naruto as a Buffet Dinner set in a Table, then Flip it,(table flip) that would be TGD's worth, wasted tasty food in the floor.
The Protagonist Nei Li, lived for a Thousand Years, luckily he got a Plot Device Legendary Notebook(like Dragonballs) that has Resurrected Him, and his adventure is about relying on the Past, that's why he can't move on, so he decided to Rate and Judge people based on his Experience, and the scaling was simple, which was good in the past, is good also in the present times, vice versa with the bad guys. Then the story sticked with that motto that none of the asshole have become better in character, they are even just getting worse, as for the Side characters, well they were like 'Friends for Praise' I wanna make a choir for them lol, these guys can't live without the MC, I mean seriously author, at least on Naruto, the Side characters were Badass and they didn't relied so much to Naruto, and even the author mentioned that side characters were much badass compared to the MC, yet the author have turned them into Character Decoration? ... Tsk, the MC is a wimp in the past who became badass, I would prefer to read the story of the Past adventures than to read what is presently written on this novel, since in the Past he knows 'Manners' and 'Respect' but you could say that he's weak that have become strong in knowledge
(since there's so many plot holes about his story, like he didn't past the Silver Rank, but he's the Greatest Alchemist)

~Enjoyement~ 2
I can't enjoy these type of series, thought I'm amazed that I've tolerated it up to 150, this is a waste of time, even though I appreciate the Translator and I respect the Author for his Job, and I didn't pay a cent for it for reading it, still I regret that I've read it. Save your time, money can't buy it.
First of all, this story has nothing to Offer, but only 'Glory' of the Protagonist.
Second, the protagonist can't even make himself Respectful, he does not have Charisma to become one, he's just an asshole in character. The author could have made him Respectable through intelligent arguments or debates, at least he has a knowledge of worth of a Thousand Years.
Third, the mc is a phedophile, it's only natural to get attracted to women, and it's reasonable since he was resurrected, but in that childs body is an experienced old man, I doubt that People will love to read it if he has an image of an old man too.

There's so many reason why I have to drop this, but the only thing that I want is 'Quality' and this one does not have that 'Quality' that I want to see in a Novel, I Shall Seal the Heavens is a Xianxia, so I can't compare it and I've already Decided to Abstain myself from Xuanhuan, unless it has received Positive Reliable Reviews with a proper Judgment and refined taste when it comes to Novels.

Overall This series has the potential but was destroyed by Glorification and Fanservice(not only ecchi thing has fanservice, but also Overpowered Moments is a type of Fanservice) and Shallow, and full of disappointment.
If you're into Chinese Novels, (since I'm not) Make sure that You're reading a Novel Worthy of its Praise, not full of shallow moments, not full of retard characters, not repetitive and make sure it's Unique. This novel is also one of the reason why I don't read Chinese Novels, since only few has written character depth, and Even ISTTH has barely able to keep up on my Standards, and the chinese novels that receives genuine praise were made for women. <<less

It was a 4/5 when i started the series. It was the cliche strong male lead story that drawn me into it and well the fast updates. But all that stoped when it reach around chapter 110+-, don't remember specifically which. ... more>>

The protagonist started to become an abnoxious jerk and even became downright unlikeable even though i liked him in the beginning. Not sure if this is a spoiler.

The author's reason of him being like that doesn't click with me either. So i droped it. Do try to read it and make a conclusion yourselves. Maybe he became likeable again in the later plot. <<less

Like most Chinese novels, they start off really well, but then gets repetitive or too biased for anyone to read or like the MC. This is one of them, I dropped this early on because the pattern was pretty obvious at that point, anymore reading and I'd be wasting my time. If you read one of the stereotype MC becomes strong due to luck, you've read them all, and this is one of those.

Don't waste your time.

I don't like rating bad but this story really doesn't deserves more than that.

When I read it, I thought that it was written to satisfy a 13 years old's complexes like being intelligent, praised by everyone, being loved by each and every woman (even if they are waaaaay older than you), not having to show respect to anyone. You know, I read Bel-Ami by Maupassant and I thought of slapping the face of this MC even more than in that book.

Not only that, it's really bad written. The author... more>> uses an omniscient point of view, that is first pretty rare, but the real problem is that the point in using it is normally to show the entire view of a situation. Yet, by showing the entire situation, it makes the people seem stupid by agring with everything th MC says, and very simple minded by the fact that it switchs to their mind only to show how much this boy is a genius. A single person point of view would have suited the book better, and I'd like to tell this person that knowledge doesn't mean intelligence. To me, he's everything except a genius.

Third point, everyone should have noticed that his amount of knowledge is fishy. Like, really fishy. He knows more than any knowledgable person in this city (that, to be said, have a really random name - Glory City, c'mon) and he's from one of the poorest noble families. That's so unrealistic.

Last but not least, those women really are stupid. Well, I could at least understand a little the two in his class, but the other two, I really couldn't. Come on, he is 13!! He is 13 in his body and even if the book denies it, he is in his mind, too!!

Well, the reason I didn't rate it just 1 or 0 is that aside from that, the story ain't that bad. Someone was reincarnated and decides to try saving his beloved city from being destroyed again, he acquires different kind of powers, etc. It could have been a really good story if it hadn't been written by and for 10 - 13 year olds.

PS: Sorry for the possible mistakes, I ain't a native English speaker <<less

Great novel! High level xianxia with interesting world, cultivation, MC and other characters. It is one of the best xianxias that are being translated right now.

P.S. Also unlike what review below mine says mc is not selfish, he helps all his friends greatly. He gives them awesome cultivation techniques and solves some of their personal problems. Also he does so much to save city and its residents so how the heck is he selfish.

This is actually a decent novel with an OP MC who isn’t so ruthless to kill anyone who offends him. There is actually a good motive and plot in the novel which keep you interested.

I think it was a really cool idea of how he has the “power of knowledge” as his weapon in many situations, he does power up a little too fast but that’s also a good thing, I don’t like the really boring and long power ups like ISSTH.

Now to romance.. I personally hate love triangles... more>> because because I feel bad for the one he rejects. So that I would say was the worst part of the novel for me. But its still fun, hopefully later on he falls for both of them and marries both of them lol.

Also the characters do have character development so that's always a good things.

The fights are cool, the comedy is amazing. This novel had probably the funniest moments in any wuxia light novel I’ve ever read. The story is always moving forward and it doesn’t stretch the story out.

The one thing i dont like is his age, hes like 13 and shit, but i just imagine him like 15.. makes him look more like a badass instead of a little kid.

Overall this is a great light novel and would recommend it to anyone especially if this is the first wuxia novel you will read. <<less

The Main Character is far to reckless and egoistic. He has a huge ego. He is a smart thinker but too prideful. The Author purposely made him that way. The Romance is actually pretty terrible..at first i smiled warmly since the Mc for once focus and loves one girl! But it's obvious the Author intends a Polygamy sooner or later. He leaves to many hints. The Mc is too forceful and possessive around her Ye Zuyen. She rarely has a say in anything and has to fallow his every command.... more>> Its depressing. Lets not forget he is more then a hundreds years old Mental Age and takes advantage of this Little 11 year old girl to get into her mind. I really don't like this Main Heroine. She's a girl who believes in sunshine's and rainbows. She's been way to sheltered. Despite saying she's intelligent she's actually pretty indecisive and muscle headed. The Main Heroine just wants a friend...she doesn't have a single dam friend! But the Mc takes advantage of this loneliness and quickly declares himself her husband! [Later on i am not surprise if the Author forcefully gets writes her 'friends'. That should had been the Mc first move in the story.

Don't add it 300 chapters later! It feels like he is huge manipulator and everything is for his convinces and whim.

C'mon you should had add her getting friends when there was the school arc! Instead of forcefully enslaving her the first step why not earn her trust and fix her relationships and get her to like you? Instead it was "no your mine!" This could had certainly been written better. The Author adds stuff unnecessary later in the story.

However...Xiao Ning'er. She knows what she wants. This character shows real development. She is not blinded by 'sunshine's and rainbows' but is OP and cold when needed. Though I hate how she fell in love real fast. You could had used her better. She's a lot better then the Main Heroine that's for sure. We see a lot of different faces from her and can't help but enjoy her pure love struck moments. Truly different from Ye Zuyin.


The Main Character. Ni Lie called the father of Ye Zuyin shameless and liar. Dude you are the one who invaded his daughter home. You were the one who blackmailed him. He is only doing it to protect her. You are bullying yourself in.

The Author keeps empathizing how beautiful she looks and I'm like "Dude I Freaking get it already". Mc keeps saying she's very kind. But Ye Zuyin is not kind. She is merely weak. She keeps trying to refuse the Mc but tries in a nice way where he wouldn't feel hurt. She wants to be friends but doesn't know how too..because Ni Lie demands the relationship to escalate as the first step. When you consider all of this and think about it. She never truly loved the Mc in her previous life. But years of so much loneliness and suddenly the death of everyone, she decided to had to sex with you as a way to comfort herself. She would had sex with anyone in such a situation. She never loved you. She died for you because she's such a "weak" person as I mentioned before. She's timid and stupid because she's always been living secluded in doors like a NEET. She never reached a stage of mental development so she doesn't know how to talk to another Human..and Ni Lie takes advantage of this.

I'm sorry I don't know why this is rated 1# in ranking. I think its not bad and I do enjoy the cultivating and action is pretty good. But you've certainly read better Wuxias then this. So don't have high expectations. There are times I've cursed while reading this story lol. Should you give it a shot? Yeah if you're super bored like me and ran out of Wuxias to read. Just don't expect anything high value from the characters. Its all about the Mc and everything revolves around him. That's the type of story this is.

I really can't help but feel sadden...its frustrating knowing the ideas are good but not utilize properly. Xiao Minger is a great character. Instantly fell in love but instantly became disappointed.

Am I not the only one infuriated by this? How can someone like the Mc? He doesn't win Ye Zuyin by heart but by using the surroundings to his advantage to the point where she wont have a choice but to marry him. He's shameless and will get anything by any means...it truly disgusts me. Why not win her heart by a proper order? Instead of taking advantage of the situation and forceful. But I also blame her for allowing him to do anything to her. I am happy other people hate this. <<less

After reading 200+ chapters I am really confused why is it the top ranked novel. Author (or maybe the translator) doesn't seem to understand what "prose" is and how it applies to a conversation and inter weaving a story. For example,
... more>>

when the Glory City's Ye Mo comes back for the first time he scolds his son for being lenient on Ye Han. He says how Ye Han has allied with Nether Realm's family and betrayed Glory City. Ye Zong listens to him and hangs his head.


You have to wonder - when, where did Ye Zong hear about the mentioned place and why isn't he "shocked" when hearing about this place or even why isn't there a follow conversation asking - "What is that Realm thing?"

There are many such conversations like these as the story goes forward. Every time I had to re-read the chapter to make sure I did not miss some conversation or explanation before that. <<less

One of the worst writing I've seen.
One of the worst plot I've seen.
The number one MC I want dead!

The writing is pathetic and keeps changing the plot every time. At first, it's only one world, few nomads here and there, a simple obvious enemy. By the chapter 200, everything explained at the start is like... nope. He changed from one world to many. From few nomads here and there to sects with MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. Even the strongest limit has been upped by a million. So, anything he... more>> wrote at start, he deleted. And that's what got me in!

The MC is the biggest piece of shit out there, and we have Yun Che and Chu rapist Feng in the market! He's slimy, he's backstabbing, he's too self-centered. The ones he claims to love he controls the most! He's just cancerous to begin with.

This novel is crap, I tried to read through the hate (my own), but f**k that.

The novel is horrible, it wasn't planned well, maybe it wasn't even planned at all! <<less

I liked the story at first but it starts to drag a bit for me. There have been times that I just scrolled through the chapter. Then there’s also the issue with the mc. Very arrogant, disrespectful, even in his clan/family. No respect for the elder just because he has knowledge from being reborn and money. He casually does stuff without fear of being reprimanded, it’s not inspiring, just obnoxious at times… I kinda want to hit him myself a few times…. 13yo who has the gull to walk... more>> into a 13yo bathing and when the dad catches him he still retorts back like it’s his right… then tells the dad that he’ll stomp him a year after… so what if he can? Doesn’t give him the right… I want to stomp his face instead…. <<less

Arrogant MC quick growth rate, well translated and relief from action by the introduction of a comic element here and there. Story flows and isn't dragged out. Recommended to all 5/5

A very similar feel to Against the Gods, so if you enjoy that flavor of story then this is something you will also enjoy. I am 57 chapters into this story and I enjoy it. There are some aspects that make me concerned, but I will address the good parts first. The MC achieved a lot in his life before he died and was reincarnated. After reincarnating, he has retained his memories and the adventure begins of how he will use his knowledge to change 'history'. It has a lot... more>> of similarities in humor and 'MC is op because XYZ' moments. It is paced well and we also get the standard asshole guy who wants to ridicule and embarrass the MC because he thinks the MC is trash. Can't have a novel without these guys. Easy to read, there is a plot and character development to some extent.

Now, I am concerned about how these authors tend to make the women super pretty and slightly one dimensional. I also find it creepy this old guy reincarnates into a 13 yr old body and starts chasing after his love who is also in a 13 yr old girl body. Sure, I know they were lovers but it has a slight pedo feel to it. <<less

Tales Of Demons and Gods is amazing as a novel, not much as manhua....

The story progress is pretty good, not to bogged down by techniques details (unlike Close Combat Mage). There is also an interesting goal set within the first chapters in the novel, to get the sense of urgency of the MC. He is not ruthless, knifing or devious (If thats your liking, go read Against the Gods).

If there is any cons to this novel, its prob how unmemorable most of the battles are... But then again I... more>> just read around 70 chapters or so.... (Thats the reason why I think the manhua could fail, coz it sticks to the novel too much for a manhua, theres not enough actions going on) <<less

This novel had such potential. It was definitely one of my favorite xianxia, the characters and the world was very interesting. The story was being developed nicely. That is until the author got bored and decided to toss the novel in the corner. The pacing of the story got crank up to 10 and you can feel that the author just wanted to end the story so he can be done with it but in the end he couldn't even do that. So save yourself the trouble and don't read... more>> this or anything else written by Mad Snail. Most of the time he won't even finish it and even if he does, the story is rush and become shit. <<less
