Everything bad about every xian xia protagonist out there put together into one package with an overdose of blandness.
In other words, he is extremely bland and boring. He has nothing unique, doesn’t do anything unique and is so bland. You see, I can’t even describe him. I don’t even hate this character. There is nothing to hate. Why? Because he barely has any character. I really don’t know what to say.
He is just so bland. That the only thing I can do to describe him.
Typical and generic cookie cutter characters. No really they are. Actually, forget that. They are simply forgettable. Even the harem members. Even the MC is forgettable. There is nothing unique. You can pretty much mistake them for any other character in this series. They don’t really have any personality.
Lets move on to the next one.
Its a typical harem with nothing new. If you have read any harem before, then I don’t need to explain anything. Just imagine every harem you have ever read, no matter the culture, and combine them together into a blender with a gallon of plain, and a cup of poor writing, and a dash of no imagination, and there you go.
None. Its a typical Xian xia with nothing unique about it. How can it possibly have any? What were you expecting. In fact, what was I expect? Something, maybe just a little. But nope. There is none. What you see is what you get, and it won’t ever change.
Typical xianxia plot, in that it is plotless, or that if one does exist, it doesn’t really matter, because it will just replace everyone that is typical about the xianxia series anyways.
I can’t describe it because there is nothing to describe it with, so...
Here is how a typical even will happen (and this represents the majority of the chapters), as loosely quoted from Arch’s review:
“MC goes outside.
Guy A walks in front of him: “Kneel”.
Guy A: “How dare you still stand in front of me, Die... ”
Random Crowd: “Blah blah blah... offended clan... blah blah... he will die.”
*MC gets mad for his pride being trampled upon and instakills Guy A*
Crowd: “Oh, he is so great, so righteous, praise him for murdering in front of our eyes for no reason”.
*MC then proceeds to kill Guy A, B, C, etc.*
Crowd: “So righteous, such a man. Nothing is more righteous than murder”.
Yup. That’s everyone you need to know about the plot (there is none).
Generic with nothing unique.
Lets move on.
Ah, yes. I do enjoy chinese writing conventions #sarcasm. Its not good. It isn’t the translator’s fault, since they are good translators. So its terrible because the source is just that. Terrible.
Bad pacing, and writing that can bore your eyes out. Extensive use of the f**king peanut gallery, almost like we are supposed to give a sh*t about random people, even though we don’t. It’s writing style isn’t unique, nor does it have a flair. Author is exceeding repetitive and rants a lot.
Boring. MC screams skill name out. Enemy gets instakilled.
There is nothing interesting or special about this series. It is the culmination of every overused xian xia trope and cliche all put into one series.
This is quite literally, the worst series on this website. Not because it’s badly written. There is merit in that, because at least it can get me angry or pissed of at the characters. But not this. Its just so bland I can’t really say anything about it. I mean it has ever single cliche and trope I hate. But it doesn’t make me mad or hate it, because it is so bland, that I have expected and accepted it.
And for a Xian xia series, that is the worst that it can get. Nothing stands out enough to read this over any other series.
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"
