So the story is: guy gets betrayed by his gf but fear not hes got 10 end game companion beasts. Incidentally, he might be reincarnated with no prior memory of it (rebirth of some peak stage cultivator). And I can't forget to mention, his mom is at the end of the rope (poisoned with some parasite or something), recently divorce, and likely has her own hidden secrets. But, you don't really care about all that you just want to see what crazy companions hes got after you read the 2nd... more>> chapter; hook, line, sinker and everything.

Okay, so far the set up sounds good and proper but the rest of the story is pure tr*sh unless you are someone that can tolerate all the constant mindless face spitting that goes on in every chapter. Yes, the author leans very hard on underdog theme where everyone regards him as a worthless person, to be humiliated as they see fit, therefore, Li Tianming must in turn shame them just as viciously and beat them senseless (if not outright kill them in many cases). So needless to say, the story and ALL characters are class A mierda; its so bad it will make some of you outright drop the novel, you cannot just ignore it and try to focus on other themes.

This part is FYI:
Remember when I said he might be reincarnated? So there is also this "world-toppling beauty" princess with conveniently 10 locked support class innate abilities (kind of like MC's 10 companion eggs with locked powers) that synergises 100% with our MC unlike others. They seem to have these vague threads of fate tying them together (they speak of some known mysterious magnetism or strange familiarity even though it is the first time they met). Oh, of course, her hidden one of a kind abilities are OP.

Then there is the humor: predictive, unduly crude, and excessive. Not my cup of tea. Basically, his first phoenix companion is kind of like Lord Fifth, but with the same repeated jokes about "chicken soup" and over the top unfiltered dirty jokes toward any woman or opponent's companions beast or just in general banter.

Over all I would say this story is a hit or miss for most people. So go ahead read it and judge for yourselves. <<less

Predictable cliche revenge cn novel, everyone thinks MC is tr*sh, MC hides his power until he needs it the most, with super thick plot armor and OP luck/skills (in MC's case he found 10 monster eggs each rivaling a god). MC's personality is one of those typical loud mouth kids from shounen mangas. The whole plot with the MC's mother is just garbage, that was pretty much the nail in the coffin that caused me to drop this. It has a intriguing start, but fails to keep the momentum going... more>> like most cn novels.

As of now, not much is explained about the MC's mom, only that she abandoned her entire family to marry the scumbag ex husband who threw her away and that she has this disease that has been killing her slowly for 20 years, and that she had many powerful suitors that wanted to marry her, but nope, she apparently got knocked up and gave up everything she had. So here comes the MC, his goal is to have his grandpa save his mother, and when the grandfather got angry, he gets all pissed off and basically says "you're her father its your duty to save her!". First of, it was his mother that abandoned the family and left, thus she got disowned, this is a serious thing in china, so it only goes to show how ignorant and c*cky the MC is thinking he and his mother can just walk back in like nothing happened.

From a 3rd POV I don't sympathize with the MC's mother at all after what she has done from what i've read so far, but as a son I do get why the MC would do everything to save her, but the mother not explaining the full truth to the MC and keeping w/e she did a mystery makes me not really care if she dies or not. But given how thick plot armor is, she'll end up getting cured, get a total make over and then have dozens of powerful people attempting to court the mother again. True or not, I'm done with this novel. <<less

Looks like I'm the first reviewer of this novel. This is also my first review ever, so I might be a bit inexperienced.

Any way, I really like this novel so far. There is only 52 chapters translated so far, which isn't much in CN novels. And the raw is still ongoing as well, so we will have to wait and see how long it will be. First off, let me explain the good points.

PROS:

  • Unique concept. This novel is based on cultivation, but introduces the concept of each individual having a lifebound beast, which cultivates alongside them. This has a lot of unique features and characteristics with it that you don't find in other novels.
  • Great companion. His companion, so far, is a little chick who is super cheeky and perverted. It takes the place of a pet companion in other novels but it is a super funny addition to the story. Good humor, and it always provides a laugh when you imagine the little chick beating up super strong beasts that the enemies have.
  • Well-written and nice translation. This novel is translated by wuxiaworld, so you can expect good quality in the translation. So far it's been great.
CONS:

  • Almost all of the cliches featured in other novels are featured here, with minor twists. This includes the 'damsel in distress' cliche, or 'arrogant young master' cliche's found everywhere. He also offends some seniors, and everyone except a few people hate him. He is also crippled at the start, a common starting point in CN novels.
Aside from that, it's pretty interesting so far, I guess. But be sure to be ready for a lot of cliches and some face-slapping of arrogant young masters.

Author makes every character an a**hole, ch150 and only 4 normal males and 2 normal females have been seen. The rest are either arrogant, braindead or an enemy due to his mom. The author thinks as long as it is a problem its extra chapters. Even the most powerschool straightup grabbed his price and gave it to some arrogant b*tch. F*ck this bullshit, actually wasted my time on this so much that I wrote this authors name down to never read his novels again.

So, this novel is very interesting.

First off, it's standard xianxia, filled to the brim with your classic tropes.

In the beginning, it's pretty unbearable since literally everyone and their mother wanted to insult the MC, his family, and his unborn children just for existing. Overall the logic was pretty simple and there were no super-intelligent characters.

Well, I stuck with it since I had a xianxia fix and this helped me a bit. I fully expected this to continue being tr*sh and eventually go down the gutter like another similar novel I... more>> recently read.

Well, what surprised me is that it stayed consistent, and furthermore, it's been improving slightly. The logic is good enough, and even though the story is still full of people that hate the MC just for existing, it's better and everything seems to mesh with the story.

The unique factor has been long since lost for me, but the characters seem to be carrying themselves rather well. In fact, this MC is probably one of my favorite I've read. He's righteous and bold, but there is a very human aspect about him, and he cares for his family above anything else. He's very likeable, and is far ahead of the other hypocrite MCs you'll usually see.

Overall, this is by no means a masterpiece. But, if you want traditional and (occasionally) face-slapping xianxia, along with characters that will surprise you, then you might like this.

Edit:

Well, I've read a bit more and still think this novel is a bit of a gem. It's been steady and has been fairly interesting. It kinda of feels like the DBZ of xianxia, but better. Anyways, it gives me shounen vibes.

The moral of this novel has been:

Righteousness will prevail and the wicked will be punished.

The main character is a good dude not beyond killing but also protects his family and the innocent. Same with a lot of other characters around MC. Enemies usually always wicked and arrogant in some way, but surprisingly seem to have a bit of clarity in the end and recognize their wrongdoings. The MC also seems to think about things and even though he's super OP he isn't arrogant or hypocritical.

This novel is like a gem covered in the shell of a seemingly tr*sh novel? Well, none of it is that bad, and maybe my first review is a bit harsh on it. I don't literally mean that people hate him just for existing, just that they find super simple reasons to have a bad opinion of him and hate him, and don't think further.

Eventually, there's an 'oh shit' moment and they recognize they were being dumb usually.

Anyways, with all my dissatisfaction that came from the beginning, the author surprisingly answered all my concerns and rewarded me as well. This novel seems to take exactly the path nobody would expect it to take, and I think that the story feels meaningful as well with the moral implications.

If you have any spare time you won't regret reading this novel, well, at least till c393.

edit:

Over the last hundred or so chapters I've gotten very bored. Still isn't a bad novel, but it is failing to keep me excited. Maybe it's because I've gotten worn out or it's gotten worse. Still, the secrets are interesting and the conclusions are decent, but it's not at the level of some of the more popular highly-rated novels.

One thing that annoys me is the battle scenes, throughout the whole novel it's just felt like fighting side characters, all of which I can skip and have, but despite that, I've still got bored of the other stuff as well. Fight scenes aren't bad, I just like to skim. Still, the majority of them have failed to keep me invested.

I'm dropping it here, not bad novel, definitely doesn't deserve most of the 1-star reviews, but doesn't deserve 5-star or maybe 4-star, but I'll give it 5-star to balance the biased people.

All the dialogue and character interactions are cheesy and feel forced

The only semi interesting character so far is his pet chicken/phoenix, but even its dialogue, while occasionally funny, still feels unnatural.

It is not rare for cultivation novels to feel immature, but this one feels specially so with the childish insults used by both the MC and the infinite number of arrogant young masters.

There isn't much downtime, as soon as MC defeats a powerful foe there is a more powerful one around the corner, this is typical in the genre, but... more>> better novels weave in a bit of character development in between all the fighting.

The romance, to me at least, feels very inorganic, the girl just conveniently had some ability to make him stronger and then boom they are lovers. Well at least it wasn't s*x poison (yet), so maybe I shouldn't complain too much

Dropped ~350chs... Second arc was a huge disaster (never expected that author could be lazy to that extent. My reaction was "are you kidding? You just copy pasted first arc!". First arc was not creative at all, I would describe it "chain of cliches", then author changed some setups and chain lost all logic points. Just mindless fights and tournament every 10chs (no reasons for fights, only because it's copy pasted there have to be a fight/tournament).

Its like same garage (location is really small:chool-sect, mountain-"dangeon"), same actors (patriarch-patriarch,... more>> mother-sister, uncle Mu-uncle Ye, arrogant young masters and every side character want to kill mc), same scenario, same jokes, same "plot". World is to blank, no twists, no suspense, no character development (standart antagonists "kill and r*pe", onlookers and always underdog protagonist), no creativity everything is copy paste from genre. Boring when you already can guess what would happen in the next 100chs ( ( (Also, if solution for every conflict is a duel/life and death battle, that's not my cup of tea. Don't expect some genuine ideas, "im not fool! go death battle I will prove you how smart I am"

The initial premise was okay, I'm always a sucker for pokemon cultivation novels. However, the beast raising aspect takes a back seat to the MC being awesome at fighting. Beast raising and beast fighting is not well done at all. Do it right, don't just tease pokemon cultivation and return to the standard cultivation xianxia fare.

The novel is also filled with the most cliche xianxia characters, including jealous young ladies, arrogant young masters, brainless geniuses, face slapping, despicableness that transcends common sense, and of course insta-love with the female love... more>> interest.

It throws these cliches at you that you can barely breathe. Half of chapters are filled with characters insulting the MC. And then he has to get revenge, then he gets revenge, and more cliches appear. <<less

So far this is quickly becoming one of my favorite CN novels. You won't find a huge departure from any tropes here, but tropes are tropes for a reason. The most excessive parts (got betrayed and crippled, basically) are also pretty restricted to the very first couple of chapters of the novel, though their influence continues after that.

There's also some basic stuff I'm not typically a fan of, with the combat and arts being a bit more on the side of what you might find in an old Chinese martial... more>> arts movie. For example the MC seems to be gravitating towards using a whip as his main weapon. I enjoy the variety, but without headcanoning that basically everything he does with it involves magic, it's just kind of ridiculous. It's not too extreme, but it certainly tends this way.

You even have everybody constantly talking about how the MC is tr*sh. Again in some parts I think this is getting a little excessive. However at least it makes sense for once. In most novels most people are tr*sh, so it's quite odd that the MC is always the one who gets singled out. But in this novel the MC is slandered and publicly known for essentially attempting to date r*pe a very well known and popular woman. It's fairly understandable that he would attract public ire at least. So far he's also legitimately fairly old for his current cultivation, so it seems pretty reasonable to me that people would be calling him tr*sh for now.

However, as I said, this novel is becoming one of my favorites. It's because the story actually spends time on the actual relationships between the characters. So many stories do rely on the MC being willing to do a lot for their family but hardly ever show their interactions with the aforementioned family. They so often rely totally on people not questioning the fact the MC loves their mother or whatever, and as a result they say like ten things to each other in a thousand chapters. That relationship often just doesn't mean much unless you do a whole lot of self-insertion. However here the author actually goes into it. We get to actually see and understand how and why the MC cares so much for their mother. It's a wonderful payoff, and makes the story and the MC's struggles actually feel like it all means something. It's too early to say for sure, but so far this seems to be how the MC's other relationships are going too. I don't expect to see romantic partners that just fade into the background as soon as the initial flirting is over. It's really not something I should be so excited about, but...

And just to top it all off, the fights are just enough and not too much. The fights are just long enough to make their point about the characters' strengths and abilities. And then they actually end, and the story moves on. It's wonderful.

It's still early days for a novel this long, but so far I'm really excited about it. <<less

This another book from the Against the Gods line of thought, fast action-packed books with cultivation just being a level and all the usual troupes.

The characters are tolerable up till this point, though it looks like their only be degradation in the future.

MC is plain af, the only redeeming quality of the book is funny beast pets, think Lord 5 and a breakneck pace.

Overall: It's not bad, but not a priority when it comes to being a selection to be read.

If you are here to be given a well developed world to explore, this novel isn't it. If you change your perspective and allow it to be more about a light-hearted banter of following a teen, then it's not too bad.

The pace of the story is always moving from training to battle, to progression back to training, without rest and that hampers world building and any connections a reader would make. The... more>> author lacks ways to make battle scenes more impactful due to how low the foundation of which characters/villains are being introduced and climbed pass by the MC. The dialogue and banter between MC and the Beasts, and the MC (Tianming) himself is fun to read and continue the adventures with, but the overall lack of details really makes it harder to focus on why the battles matter if they are just going through the motions of battling.

Review

World Building: 6/10 Not too bad of a world building. Doesn't explain much of a broader concept in the beginning so opened for more expansion as the story progresses. Get's the job done. There are some elements of the 'bigger cultivation universe' that has been addressed and how MC relates to the broader world other than the Beasts and how some things are unraveling isn't bad.

Dialogue: 7.5/10 I feel it's the slapstick interaction between Tianming and his beasts that drives the story moving. Most of the time, it's the banter between Tianming and his humor that gives him some character other than battle driving plot.

Pace of the Story (Personal opinion) : 4.5/10 The pace of this story is always in motion and the author isn't stopping it and it always seems like the MC needs to be doing something; either battling or training because time is always so short. Spending some time exploring the world building, catching up with some dialogue and have us readers emotionally connect with of the introduced characters would be nice change of pace. Problems is that the author doesn't allow time for characters to build, and we only see that one dimension of introduced people.

There is no big plot twist, anything out of the ordinary when it comes to keeping the reader engaged other than trying to prepare you for the next up-coming battles.

Battle Sequence: 2.5/10 Now for the fact that this novel is battle-driving pace, it's already off to a rough start when characters/villains aren't as well introduced, and the author has one the most worse ways to drive a battle sequence when it comes to this novel. It's always battle scenes like "Tianming uses Attack Move A! Villain used Defense Move B in return. Tianming uses Attack Move B and does this which the Villain is unable to fight back. Tianming then cleans up the fight and triumphs." in such format which dulls the impact of which the villain's point of the story.

How is the battle-scenes? Pretty bad.
Spoiler

The battles got bad to the point where the word count of the battle chapter went down 30% compared to other regular chapters. A commenter wrote: This fight was... embarrassing. Can no one give Tianming a proper fight? I like how quick the battles are compared to other novels, but I'm starting to feel that they are a bit... too easy.

[collapse]

In the end, the battle scenes are just not explained well enough just almost like a pokemon battle level of damage calculations and visual aspects.

General Others: 3/10 Too many characters are being introduced that is hard to keep up because there are so many sects and elders to remember. <<less

Let's get one thing out of the way first. This novel will not blow your mind. It is filled with all the cliches that are part of the genre and it makes no effort to hide it or to mitigate it.

That being said, I'm still enjoying it. The cultivation system is different enough to be interesting and it makes sense in the setting.

And if you enjoy faceslapping and revenge plots, this will fit lile a glove as most of what I read is the MC getting stronger and faceslapping arrogant... more>> a**holes.

Expect plenty of plot shield, unbelievable luck and one-sided beatings.

Yet somehow I find myself longing for this novel more and more. My only fear is that the author has set himself up to a lot of problems in the long run and that it will lose its steam unless it can find something else other than revenge plots to support it. <<less

Seems decent so far but nothing special. It's a bit irritating that the author is leaning so hard on the everyone is an as*hole cliche (his half sister, his girlfriend, his mom's best friend, every rando he runs into, etc etc), but the banter between the MC and his lifebound beast makes up for it so far.

I'll be continuing this novel.

Interesting Novel!

MC was crippled, recovers and is fighting s*upid young masters.

Sounds boring, but a certain young chicken is rescuing the story.

The interactions between MC and his beast are hillarius.

The humor is enough to liven up the whole story.

Also, the MC still has nine other eggs.

Can´t wait for more!

Once again a great translation by wuxiaworld!

I like it. The MC is good, the plot isn't bad, the cultivation system is great, and the pace is nice. The story does have a lot of cliches, but they're done better than most other novels of the same type. Mc's revenge plot is satisfying and doesn't drag for too long before it's wrapped up. There is a lot of face slapping, but it's bearable. Author really knows how to make you hate the antagonists. Thai king strength is done through cultivating with your beast companions. The Mc's interactions... more>> with his two beasts are pretty funny. The MC seems to slowly be becoming more ruthless as time goes on. Although the story does have some repetitive aspects (MC goes to a new place->Gets mocked->Shows he's a prodigy and face slaps people) the author manages to add things to keep it entertaining. Questions crop up throughout the story as the MC gains more abilities and learns more about himself and his family.

The romance is alright. The story between the MC and the female lead is pretty average, but the female lead has her own mysteries. She's devoted towards the MC and vice versa.

Overall it's a good novel. Something to note is that the pacing is pretty fast, so best be prepared for that if you read. <<less
