The bad thing about this? The character is OP.

The good thing about this? The character is OP in the most disjointed way. He doesn't bulldoze his enemies with higher power levels. He beats them with money, and time, and hours of preparation and coincidence.

Unfortunately, as the series goes on, the character becomes more OP in the traditional (but extremely boring) xian xia way of having higher power levels, as the author is running out of ideas of how to get him to win by not using power levels. And they... more>> end up having beam spam fights instead of intricate fights. Well, its much better than Er Gen's fights, in that its not just people fighting by shouting skill names.

On the other hand, it is unique in the sense that the main character isn't a horny bastard, isn't a blood lusty bastard, doesn't tread the path of eternally fighting generic cannon fodder, isn't in a solo play scenario (he is eternally in a party), isn't self righteous, doesn't do evil sh*t while trying to justify it with weird chinese web novelist morals, doesn't become a millions worse than the worst person that was with them, no absolute evil people and all that jazz. Its not all sword fights and beam (skill) spamming.

But, it does have a few cliches:
Character is born natural genius. Character has blood line. Character has feet fetish. Character is OP. A world were power levels are important.

Anyways, its unique and good enough to be read. I give it a 5/5 for trying to write a different style of xian xia. <<less

Its really average and generic. For that, I give it 3 stars. The premise behind the story doesn't really add much of anything to the story. The story proceeds slowly, and spends most of the time talking about cooking. Yes. Cooking.

This is one of the 99% of japanese webnovels that are about cooking.

There isn't anything special about it that I would recommend reading it. But if you are looking for the usually another world fantasy story, than this is your thing.

As of chapter 91: So far, its great. There is a harem, but its forgivable, and isn't unruly, like other xian xia series, so far. (The worst harem I have ever read is Peerless Martial God and Martial Arts God Asura, in that they are just utterly terrible.)

So he's a transmigrated assassin. He uses his mind more than his skill in this series. It's not a OP character blood bath so far, as the character acts more like a trickster hero in the beginning than a murdering hero. He... more>> does have a unique cheat skill though, so if you don't like that its fine. But the unique cheat skill only serves a purpose for him to use his "assassin skills" in a xian xia universe.

It also has decent humor. Yeah, sure, xian xia usually doesn't have good humor (at least to western audiences. I don't know if chinese people find it hilarious), but the humor in this one is good enough.

And he is great at trolling. Characters that can defeat others through trolling and trickery are more entertaining than those that win through slaughter. <<less
