While the most unique thing in this story is the MC, but because of how she is wrote and executed a lot of the really good and unique thing that could be done have fallen flat or just have not happen as of yet.
The lord while he is also extreme. He is a extreme of the genre. As are just about all other character as of now other than the horse.
So yes this also falls victim to that part but even these are mostly bland and uninteresting
There are many things I can see happen that would make this more interesting. With that king and lord. Or even with the fact if being worshiped as a healing saint. As these I think are plot threds that if done right could make this story very good.
because the MC is blind for the first 20 chapters, his family see him as crippled. In the text it is stated that he was loved by his family when he was not blind. And even when he was blind it said that they still loved and took care of him for the first 3 months. The problems started when he began training. The MC insisted on not giving up while the family was pretty much saying " hey your crippled, its ok to cultivate but do it slowly so we can give the resources to some who can use them." The MC does not listen and continues to use those resources. This pisses people off, but bcause of rules that only gives resources from high cultivation and not skill. The jealous uncle says as a long term plan, add combat to see who is the best. While that was happening things were going on with the MCs father causing the MC to lose trust and begains to feel unloved when he has 2 brothers and a sister. (the the 1 brother and the sister are litteraly forgotten about and are not talked about up to date. Kind of disappointing.) So MC crys wolf saying he is gaining his eye sight back as a last ditch effort to keep the love he had and stalls for a year and a half before he is found out. This infuriates everybody because he he lied to them and caused there kids to loes valuable time. Things happen after that but this is already to long.
Plot 4.5/10 most plots are genric with sub standard repeating plot threads that are just barely good enough to keep you reading.
Setting 3-8/10 usually one of the better parts. Alot of the time you will get you ancient version of an oversized China with mosters and demon beasts. Other times you might find a really good unique setting with good mecanics in theory. Usually roll of the dice for thoes or not.
Translation NOTHING TO DUE WITH QUALITY. 2.5/10
I am not judging Quality. That can vary massively, so what I am judgeing is how well it translates. So even if there is zero grammatical mistakes it can still get a bad score.
Wuxia translations usually suck. They just don't translate well. If you are new to the genre and you start off with a hard one. That has a lot of the Chinese sayings and just foreign concepts one after the other, and pray that you don't end up with two people from the same clan.
Nothing worse than reading 200 chapters not knowing who the MC is because of them having praticly the same name that looks completly diffrent in Chinese and completey the same in English. Like cheng yie and cheng yu and then in the next chapter you see 8 more people the the cheng name. and you just get confused and don't know what is happening. It can ruin the genra for you. And has ruined intire books for me. And saddly a lot of them I find are just like that.
I have read literally tens upon tens of this exact same story. Maybe hundreds and I just did not relize it. Just about none of those storys were "bad" by my standards. And at the same time just about none of them were "good" either.
Kuma kuma and lets say The just about any other novels of this type. They all Are just about the exact same story at the core. Now they have there diffrence and by a literacy stand point but would consider the mass majority of those novels far superior.
They have plot. They try to have charachter development, most of them try to expand on the world. And within the first 5-10 chapters you can see this in about everyone of them. And non of that ever happens. Why? Because it feels like the authors give up. They start the story, make plans or at least start to make plans, start to lay things out, then lose intrest or relize there idea is not going to work, or just have a "uhhh what now?" Moment. And from that moment the story spirals into a cheap cliche fantasy novel with truops after troup and some wish fulfillment thrown in for some good measure.
And the ones that turn out better are usely ones that have good writers or just translate better.
What about the ones that never gave up? Well they usely become pretty good. And get rather popular and well reseved. Like the lazy swordmaster. Being the most well known right now.
