I Shall Seal the Heavens
February 5, 2017
I have seen many people say that it's slow in the beginning, but that it gets good later on, and I really hoped that it would... But it proved me wrong and stabbed me in the eyes.
First, lets talk about pros, because there's only a few of them:
1. The story starting is different from most other novels where the Protagonist[PT] have some sort of super knowledge of past life, or born in a clan and what not. There's nothing like that in this novel. PT is not a douche
in the beginning.
You must be looking for other pros, but that's all there are... lol.
Let's go to cons, and these are the funniest and stupidest that the writer could write:
1. PT was nothing but a mortal and a poor guy in the beginning, but after he was kidnapped, he ends up becoming an immortal and comes back to his hometown after three years. And at that time, PT is still sad, and if you know his reason for being sad, you would want to kill yourself. It's because he's low on spirit pills now, like he was low on money when he was a mortal. So his heart stings as nothing changed in the three years. And the worst part is... Just after he said that sentence, he f*cking flies on top of a flying sword and dashes through the skies!!! If he was a mortal, he wouldn't have done that at all, and now he isn't satisfied with what he achieved at all. He's only thinking about pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills!!!!
2. I have never seen a story where one can take literally as many pills as he want with no problem during all levels and they will still help breakthrough even at top levels!! All you need to do to beat an opponent you couldn't touch in the previous chapter is to eat pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills, pills.... and then you can beat the sh*t out of the guy in the very next chapter if not the same chapter.
3. This series must be the only one which has more chases than the fights themselves. I think the author had a scarred memories of dogs or pigs chasing after him all the time. Otherwise, I don't know why he likes to spend chapters and chapters on chasing itself!!!! Yes, you can go and drink a tea, or even eat lunch before their chasing stops.
4. Treasure Trove. Can you guess who that is? Of course I am sure you got it right. It' s our PT. He's the real treasure trove, because he gets all the treasure in the vicinity of a million kilometers. People come chasing after him for chapters and chapters just to hand him their treasures, and get crippled, or tortured or humiliated. And of course, if you were expecting a decent fight, then you will be disappointed. You will see beams, and unforeseen figures fighting each other. Some times, it hard to imagine where they are fighting, let alone how they are fighting. As for that mirror, it's the worst thing that spoiled the entire novel in my opinion. To be honest, even without that mirror, I would have given 2 star at max. The characters are so bland after all.
5. No training whatsoever... Why to train when we have PILLS!!!!!! Just eat one, and beat everyone.
6. What's the heroine for? He talks more with other girls than her. If that was the case, the author shouldn't even have introduced her. It's a halfhearted story writing.
7. PT doesn't stick with anyone, not even heroine like I said before. He keeps meeting new characters who are forgotten a few chapters later, as most of them will never return.
8. Plot moves forward not because the PT does something different to reach closer to his goal. It moves forward when he gets chased. Yes, that's how writer moves the chapters count forward, ahem.. I mean plot.
9. PT becomes such an unlikable character that you don't really care what happens to him, or even what he's doing right now. Because you know that he's going to eat a pill or use a treasure to beat his opponent and get his pills and treasures to use against his next opponent and the list goes on. The world building is below average and if not for that dao concept I would say that it's literaly sh*t. There's at least some sense in there, though we have seen similar concepts in other CN novels.
10. I think I am going to stop with this tenth one. There will be too many of them if this goes on. The PT in this novel lacks morality. I don't know how the hell he's a confucious scholar in the past. He beats the sh*t out of a girl, and then spanks her afterward!! He constantly tortures his foes, and enjoys doing that to already defeated enemies. His character changes from an okay guy to an utter garbage. And I simply couldn't read through his journey anymore, as I was getting more yawns that the pills he was eating!!!
As for the translators, I think they did an okay job, as there's no creativity in the writing, it's just plain. But... given that they have to translate at fast pace, I can understand them. Actually, I should salute them for translating this repetitive novel. It must have taken lot of juice out of them.
The 1 star I gave is not for the translators as, like I said, most writing is plain.
And the one star is for trying a different beginning, and an okay world building.
That's all guys.
If you guys want me to recommend any novel, then ask me... I will happily do that, and be pleased too.
