If you are looking for a cunning or smart or an evil MC, then this novel is definitely not for you. The MC in this novel was named Fang yuan, So I thought I will be watching some evil MC. But the MC in this novel is just straight up naive, This guy have no goals and no motivation. It just feels like a bland character.

Also the MC is extremely s*upid and he even forgives his enemies who literally wanna plot against him and kill him.

... more>>

For example there is a guy called Lin wu who wanna attack an other nation, this guy is like a city lord with six cities under him. MC actually had a good relation with this guy. But the country where both MC and Lin wu live have a royal family, but due to the powers of cultivators the influence of royal family in the country is verry little.

So the princess set out to sabotage the relation between MC and Lin wu, she is actually extremely weak and all she had for her was her peerless beauty. She first went to MC and told him to oppose Lin wu, MC obviously declined, but then she had courage and started insulting and blackmailing MC. If anyone else did this MC will usually kill them, but her being the peerless beauty, this d*ck head actually started clapping and appreciating her bravory.

Then after some chapters, she had made this d*ck head MC her puppet and he actually fought against Lin wu and even started helping this b1tch without having any benefit.


Also in the entire novel MC never done anything that can be considered evil, this guy will even spare the life of annoying characters that obviously wanna kill him, only for them to cause more troubles for the MC. <<less

What an infuriating MC, the more I read the more unbearable this MC becomes. This is nothing like WMW, not even close. The MC's character was written without effort, repeating same dialogues and lame reactions, especially his excitement feels fake.

Unlike Leylin Farlier (wmw) and the real Fang Yuan (ri) who are both realy calm & cool and had a natural air of indifference, but the MC here is just trying hard to act cool and feel inorganic. When he's in the middle of a Fight he also loves... more>> to say cliche villain snide remarks against unimportant characters.

Like thiss:


"Taste my Black Sand Palm!!"

"Can you take my Giant Eagle Claw?!"

"Using a grasshopper's arm to block an oncoming car!" (ch187)


MC doesn't have brilliant schemes or planning. He's just a boring-ass guy who for some reason got a main character role in a novel. lol

A very sad fact is that MC is heavily plot-armored. Unlike Leylin Farlier (wmw) or Fang Yuan (ri) who scheme their way to get their wants and needs, MC here just wait for things to fall into his lap. The routine is basically... [People/Beasts will attack him > He will kill them > Loot them.. AND REPEAT] Basically a story written almost without planning. Aside from that the story relies a lot on Luck & Coincidence!

For example:

MC luckily hunts a rare Snake and he got Medicine & Poisons from it.

MC had a bit of knowledge in medicine, so later Influencial people came to his door and asking him to cure their Patriarch, if not they will attack him. But coincidentally the patient is actually poisoned and he coincidentally know what kind of poison it is and also coincidentally have the cure for it. So they worship and praise him and got their respect.

Then they rewarded MC with Martial-art Manuals, and coincidentally one of those manuals is a martial-art that use poison and he coincidentally just have the poison so he used that poison to make his martial-arts stronger.

This is just one of the many scenario. This pattern keeps repeating later on.


The only good thing in this novel is the Cultivation realms but it was explained so terribly that I only got about 60-70% of it.

Another note is the novel is horribly translated, missing parts, some paragraphs are jumbled and out of order. The TL also doesn't even know how to use proper words.
For example:

"I have a VAGUE IDEA of the next stage!"

"I have a ROUGH SENSING of the next stage!"



I hate to be a grammar police since I'm also an MTL reader, but the TL of this novel is ret*rded. It might look alright if it's just once, but this is pretty much how the whole TL of the novel goes and it makes me wanna break my screen.


This is a terrible novel and the only reason I got this far is because I want a story where MC is a "Selfish" & "Top G" in the story and I'm also somewhat hoping for a change of translator later but never happened! This story is only worth 2/5 stars for me. I regret reading this shit.

PS: You can try it, just don't expect anything and you might just enjoy it. lol <<less

Very interesting story. The description in the series can be very misleading. If you expected a farming centered novel or or slice of life story then you've been completely fooled: the farming part is merely in the first parts of the novel.

This novel is very much like the authors previous tale: Warlock but with a more refined concept. It's about the MCs journey of discovery as he sinks into the deep pool about the truths and workings of universe. The story is split into parts where he journeys different worlds... more>> each with its own unique setting and "story" with the MC appearing as manipulator or even as the main character. These are then spread out over the overarching main story about the events in the homeworld om the MC as his avatar returns from each journey.

The tone of the novel and main characters personality is very much like that of the previous novel - Rational Lawful Evil guy without much regards to morals or romance, everything is for the sake of benefits, sneers at meaningless killing yet wouldn't lift an finger to stop catastrophes causing the death of millions if those align with his goals.

I wouldn't really even call this xuanhuan, this is just fantasy - and ALL sorts of it due to the different worlds he travels, from ancient asia to post WWI with superpowers (thanks XMEN) to dark victorian with demons (BLOODBORNE BABY) all I know is that its pretty awesome. <<less

Started out pretty good. Smart MC, farming rather like World of Cultivation, then quickly veers off course and turns into a crappy clone of Warlock of the Magus world. I quit at chapter 36. If you like brainless, mu*derous MCs, then this might be the story for you. If you prefer a more 'Carefree' story, then probably better to look elsewhere.

A disappointing lackluster entry from the author of Warlock of a Magus World. This novel is essentially a clone of WMW if you take away everything that made WMW great.

  1. The MC is ruthless yes: but he has no reason to be so. Leylin (WMW) had a plot-driven reason to be ruthless, this MC is just a sociopath for no good reason.
  2. The MC is s*upid, the author gave him an overpowered system which essentially acts as plot armor allowing the author to have the the MC be supremely talented for no good reason.
  3. Plot armor galore, the author has grown lazy and it shows in the sheer amount of plot armor involved in this story. Everything keeps falling into the MC's lap
  4. Boring farming system, the key draw of this series is that it has farming elements similar to the start of "World of Cultivation". These are quickly abandoned, however, and essentially become a way for the author to funnel in justification for plot armor and power ups

With the title, synopsis and slice of life, I kinda expected that it would be more a relaxing read with a xianxia theme but nope it's not which is a big disappointment to me. Add in to the fact that everything most of the high reviewers said is not really true due to the fact that if you read a lot of other CN you could already see the cycle of cliche happenings here after around 40 or 50 chapters. Like for some example MC would just find some kind... more>> of plot/luck whenever he needs to find the things he wanted i.e seeds, items, skills or the likes.

Well aside from the start of it, where he farms spiritual farm and have a accompanying system with it, there's nothing really unique with this series <<less

Another good novel by a very gifted author. While WMW is still superior in my opinion, this novel can stand on its own. To compare, the character in this novel is more true neutral rather than neutral evil that Leylin is. I know that the evil MC in WMW was off-putting for many younger readers. On the other hand, the progression in Warlock feels more thought through and Leylin worked much harder for his lucky encounters in comparison to the MC in this novel.

Overall one of the best novels that... more>> are currently being translated. Don't waste your time here and go read it. <<less

Truly just like the title of this novel "Carefree Path of Dreams", the MC here is truly a carefree person. He's not the usual righteous individual but instead a person passionate only to his work and lazy to help others. He is also knows how to read the mood...


This guy also have those status but as for now I can't see some clear cheat because those stats and experience bar just showed his own progress..


A botany providing his own cultivation resources..

It's really not bad at all. If you liked WMW, then you definitely will like this novel. With almost the same temperament (although MC here is definitely more righteous), you won't be disappointed. It's pretty difficult to find a novel with an MC that has a calm and collected personality. Most of the times, you'll find yourselves looking at completely apathetic killers, or righteous to the point of childish and unrealistic.

Again, I'm only at chapter 70 of the hundreds of chapters in the novel, but it is quite good, and... more>> the five star rating is for the future prospects that this novel can give. Although MC also gets a lot of cheats, and undoubtedly rises in power as lot easier than Leylin does, I hope that in the future, MC will slow down because his

advantages in terms of constitution should fade away.

If MC gets too OP too fast, I'll have to definitely lower the rating, however, as the author of WMW, I hope the author wouldn't be making such an amateurish mistake

Edit: Alright, after a literal 2 and a half years later, I finally finished the novel, and I'll have to rate the novel down to 8/10. Once Fang Yuan gets to the "dao fruit realm, " the quality of the novel visibly gets a lot worse. Some things are still pretty interesting, but a large downgrade from WMW. Both novels have extremely rushed endings that could have lasted for hundreds of more chapters, but Carefree Path of dreams ending was so bad compared to WMW still. Even preceding that, it was clear that the novel was going downhill at the dao fruit realm. Carefree path of dreams takes the concept of Leylin's "world traversing" power at... rank 7-8 magus or something, and makes that the entire concept of the novel. I actually didn't mind this for the most part, but the repetitiveness of the "powering up" sometimes got stale, but I still enjoyed this mechanic for the most part. It's just that at the later stages of the novel, the author ran out of ideas and threw in "universe traversing" and the most s*upid "final destination" arc that lasts for a solid 10 chapters before our protagonist becomes, well, God, just like in WMW. In the end, Carefree path of dreams lost a lot of flair as it went on as compared to WMW, where a lot of different concepts are touched upon, and it was not restricted to a single theme of "world traversing" like this novel was. The beginning to mid stages of the novel were very good, but the later on you go, the worse quality it gets. A lot of details and character personalities are just not developed enough, and it just seems that everything goes perfectly for Fang Yuan. Rather than a story, it's like a railway towards success, and characters are there to serve as foil for Fang Yuan, and this hurt my enjoyment quite a bit. The plagiarist never was the type of person to make well layered characters or world building, but it was still OK, but in the later stages of Carefree Path of Dreams, it clear that he doesn't care at all and just rushes the entire thing. <<less

The entire story seems to be misunderstood -well, with that tr*sh of a synopsis it makes sense.

The beginning might seem to make the main character the typical weak to strong, underestimated protagonist who uses cheats and becomes stronger to face slap, with bland villains, all the girls being beauties and repeat..

Well; unfortunately this is the same author as WMW. The MC is at best an antihero and honestly a straight up villain.

Don't expect him to go assist females because they're females or plot armor coming into play when he's about... more>> to die - this MC is the kind who never gets underestimated much or disadvantaged much as per the style of WMW's author. Why? He knows not to think with his pants. If he needs to kiss boots, he will, and yet he would never let himself get bullied or alienated - he's that guy in a high position within an organization a typical MC will have as an enemy.

If underdog mc's not your kinda thing then this book is for you - the curbstomps happen fast and there's no such thing as MC suffering and constantly being bullied by weaker tr*sh - they fear him and respect him. A breath of fresh air with all the books around being all about "NAMELESS JUNIOR, YOU DARE!" "Pff who is this guy, how dare he disrespect the fairy"...

Nah, it's more like "My lord, thank you for visiting" "Sh!t it's him, we gotta run!" "How dare y- *dies in 2 chapters without being dragged on*" <<less

Very good novel. Atleast for me.

MC's attitude is like that in WMW. Duh!, it's a cultivation world. You won't survive such a place otherwise.

And don't believe the idiots who say he has stong plot armor or something. No he doesn't. Those who say otherwise don't know what horrible plot armor is.

... more>> He uses his brain to think (and not his lower part) , and adapts to the situation to get out of problems, instead of relying on someone to help him.

And he doesn't stir up trouble unless there's an unavoidable or profitable reason.

And he also doesn't treat women as either goddesses or as trophies/commodities. They are treated as people. He gives them proper respect if having deals with them, and also wouldn't hesitate to punch them in the face when needed. <<less

The novel was fun though a bit bland in the beginning, but it was easily rectified after some more characters were introduced and the story picked up pace. I had my hopes up and thinking that this may be a better novel than the plagiarist previous work "WoMW" which was in itself the most boring thing I have ever read.

But it seems that plagiarist doesn't know how to write engaging and ever evolving characters. This novel is a collection of tropes and sudden incidences that hold no meaning in the... more>> story context. While all the characters including the MC has been given a particular attribute and they follow it from the get go.

Now comes our cheat that gives the MC a huge advantage in growth and broken in itself. But we don't feel that the cheat [status screen] played any vital part in the story, the author has just given the MC a godly talent and nothing would have changed.

Now comes one of the main part of the novel, the farming part..... well I don't remember anything related to farming, not on the level World of Cultivation has shown us. I sometimes think that the author himself forget about the farming part as they don't seem that vital in the story.

Now the main part, and that is dreaming.
The author probably is using the trope of cultivation from "Paradise of Demonic God" and "Way Of The Devil", in which the MC's usually go to the other world (Universe) and posses the body that recently died or something else solve the karma connecting them to this world and hence increasing their cultivation.
But while the MC from those novels has a bit of distinction and personality driving them, I don't think of the same happening here with our MC. The dream parts are so bland and boring that it seems a way the author stole to increase the word count or chapter count.

THIS NOVEL IS ShIt!! Don't Read it!! <<less

Another novel from author The Plagiarist, if you finish read Warlock of the Magus World you will also like this novel because Fang Yuan (MC) have personality similar to Leylin Farlier but have different start cultivation

Fang Yuan before cultivate; life Carefree in secluded valley with his kind master, that is to say Fang Yuan have a better childhood than Leylin who transported to another world survival the fittest.

The Cheat is also not too overpowered like AI Chip (save, analysis, deduce, control, etc), and make me curious what skill/ability he will... more>> get after level up.

World Building is also like WMW, full of mystery. <<less

Ok, so I'll be honest the ending of the novel wasn't the best, but it was ok. The story as a whole tho, was something I really enjoyed. Especially the different types of cultivation systems that the MC discovers through all the worlds and universes that he explores. This is actually the part I enjoyed the most. Unlike WOTMW, Fang Yuan doesn't have any grand goal or ambition, but...


Even if he doesn't have any ambition everything he did has an explanation.

  1. Fang Yuan (15 yr old) starts of as a little farmer who lives secluded in the valley. His simple Master Wenxin who taught him Botany and Medicine has just died and the only thing he has on his mind is to continue living as he had been (honouring his master). He's absolutely normal... if he was an old man. Fang Yuan doesn't need character development because despite being 15 yrs old, he's been having dreams of his past lives ever since he was born. Ofcourse, that's not all, he's still a main character so.... He has a special system!!! (This actually has a perfect explanation down the line). Through the system he can actually learn Botany and Medicine really easily because of something called 'Proficiency' and filling some conditions. but still despite having a system he doesn't have any grand ambitions of becoming king of the world. He's just trying to become a better farmer and doctor, eating rice and drinking tea... living a carefree life.
  2. NOW this is where the 'Carefree' part of the story slowly starts disappearing. Our poor mountain boy who doesn't want any trouble still finds it... and this is where the chain of trouble starts. Fang Yuan had an arranged marriage to a girl when he was younger. He barely remembers her but the problem is that the girl turns out to have talent for martial arts (different from true cultivation. See the wiki for a proper explanation of the DaQian World cultivation systems) and the sect that owns the surrounding county (including his little valley) has just paid a visit to him to take back the marriage papers since a mountain boy doesn't deserve someone so great. This makes you pissed right? But Fang Yuan doesn't really care, he just wants peace so he keeps his head down gives the papers away in return for ownership of the valley and continues to live carefree. But... someone irrelevant servant of a young master who is lusting after his ex-fiance tries to kill him by sending some thugs in to his valley. Fang Yuan kills the thugs with the help of Flower Fox Ferret (an absolute cutey) but realises that despite wanting peace he has just been dragged into the martial world's conflicts. So he must learn martial arts. And he does. He learns martial arts and with a little halp of his system to increase the speed of his learning he kills the servant and young master in a single chapter. No nonsense. But along the way he's made too many enemies to just quietly return to his valley. So he must get stronger or die.
  3. Now stuff happens and he finds out that Martial artists are actually really weak in front of people who use 'Elemental Force' and he has enemies that are getting stronger and stronger so he has to not only learn Martial Arts but also become a Spiritual Knight that can use spells and magic and stuff. But he doesn't get proper cultivation teqniques so he decided to first get better at martial arts and become a 'Wu Zong' (Martial Ancenstor) But he needs resources, so he goes a little deeper in the valley and into the mountains... where he finds...A SPIRITUAL LAND! OK... so this wasnt a coincidence. Turns out his Old Master Wenxin wasn't a village doctor who retired but something called a 'Dream Master' and his true name is Master Heartless. Dream Masters are absolute power houses and Spiritual Knights and Martial Artists both are weaker than them in the later stages of cultivation. But Fang Yuan is living in a barren continent so he's never heard of this before. Now this is where Fang Yuan's first 'Objective' comes along. Master Heartless as amazing dream master realsed that Fang Yuan isn't a normal person. He left an inheritance but also a lot of headaches. Turns out that he was in the barren continent because he went around killing anyone who offended him in the Da Qian continent and made many enemies. He was wounded by his nemesis and retired in the southern continent where he adopted Fang Yuan.
  4. A nice cultivation journey happens with lots of interesting stuff happens until he finally becomes strong enough to kill his masters nemesis. Just kidding! He has yet to become stong enough to kill his master's nemesis but a big Villain comes around that threatens the whole world and takes away all the dream masters powers. His own dream master powers along with his enemy's have been stolen by a Demon God fro the Demonic Heart Realm. But since Fang Yuan has also practiced his martial arts till he became a True Divine he was able to kill his enemy. And now he just feels empty. He wants to go back to his valley and enjoy the rest of his lifespan... but there's a problem. Remember the Demon God that stole all the dream master powers? Yeah, so he couldn't steal all of Fang Yuan's powers because of his System!!!. But since the Demon God couldn't steal all of the 'Dream Master Path' his plans all got spoiled and he will eventually come to find Fang Yuan. After all how could a mere mortal of a lower dimension resist his powers... HE MUST HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL!!! (Thats right the enemy is actually smart and gives the MC a lot of trouble).
  5. So now our brave mountain boy must leave the leave the world entirely to become strong enough to kill the Demon God whose power he can't even imagine.
  6. After a long long long time. Travelling to countless worlds. Saving some. Destroying some. Just visiting some. After a final showdown with the Demon God (Name: Abominable Lord) (He was actually a great villain. He was extremely smart always tried to be one step ahead of the MC and really required a lot of effort to kill) Fang Yuan finally takes away the rest of the Dream Master's Path and becomes much stronger.
  7. Now that he's stong enough and has reached Dao Fruit Realm (His is called Dream Dao Fruit. To turn the world into a dream, he can control everything, create something out of nothing. Illusionary, just like a dream) he can finally solve the mystery of SYSTEM! Turns out the system is actually... ALSO A DAO FRUIT!!! The Dao Fruit specialises in high speed calculation and other things. This explains how he was he was able to remove the restriction of the world really fast everytime he visited a new one! but it also has a message. The message is actually a call for help from the universe of his past lives!! The Huaxia Universe!
  8. Now he even though he could just leave he must try to find his way to the Huaxia Universe to repay the help he got from them.
Ok so I won't say more about the plot, but I could say some stuff about Fang Yuan's personality and the missed potential of the novel.

Personality: Fang Yuan, at least in my opinion is the exact definition of True Nuetral. He isn't like Leylin Farlier who intentionally creates trouble for people and acts evil. Fang Yuan likes to pay back Karma but never does something excessive. He isn't a saint, but if someone helps him he pays them back. Of course he also could be extremely ruthless when it comes to his own life. Once he even indirectly killed 20% of a world's human life just because he needed to get stronger so he could escape from a strong enemy.

Missed Potential: So I'm sure you saw that there are no Roamce or tags like that. Yeah. He is pretty much a monk. He has absolutely no distraction. Plenty of women came along the way. He never intentionally treated them badly but he never stopped his own journey for them. The characters of this novel are not 2D, they are actually really well built, which is why it hurts so much when Fang Yuan never even looks back once and keeps moving forward. So many people with interesting characters. Their own mortal struggles. Their own stories.

Liu Mengmei. Tanya. Wei. Sigh....

The potential is really there. If he actually cared about all theses women the novel could have actually been a lot lot longer. And I really mean much longer. Simply adding a Romance or Harem Tag would have made everything so much more complicated. He could have spent effort spending his time falling in love with all these characters and every single journey to these worlds could have been much longer. Like this novel could have legitemetly have been at least 3000 to 4000 chapters long.

If he spent time trying to bring them along with him on the journey it would have taken him a lot more effort. And the best part is that Fang Yuan doesn't actually detest them. He might actually be fond of them in his mind. But he's way too careful. He absolutely never takes any chances.

People think the novel's description is misleading. Its really not actually misleading. Fang Yuan never wanted to be the big Lord of all Universes. He was just repaying his Karma. Before he knew it he was already Lord of Great Cosmological Abyss. He recreated his lost world. And he's back. And if we're being honest looking at the beginning of the journey and the end of the journey, it really feels like a dream. The Journey wasn't carefree... but the destination certainly is.

This novel is a pretty good read. The beginning was great, the MC levels up pretty fast, and traveling to other worlds by dream powers is quite entertaining. I think about 80% of the novel is about MC in different worlds and 20% in his real world. It's basically a bunch of short stories combined together with the same MC. Most are quite interesting but some will be mediocre. Some minor annoyance I need to mention are that there's sometimes too much screen time for side characters that you know... more>> will become obsolete in the future. Another thing that keeps the novel from being 5 stars is the awkward translation/editing at times. Here's an example:

Chen He spat out the chunk of meat he was chewing on and retched. He was cross.

Did the translator just go Dr. Seuss on us? Every chapter would have these cringe worthy word choices which pulls the reader out of the immersion. I have seen much worse translations in webnovel so I guess this is considered quite good already. The worst part is the ending arc which becomes confusing and seem like content the author pulled straight out of his bu*t to milk out a few more dollars. <<less

I liked the novel. Even if I didn't read other novels of the author I would like it.

The ending was a bit lackluster however it solved the remaining mysteries in the plot so I still give it a 5 stars review.

Just two points of warning there is no romance. Really none it s not that there isn't women interested it just that the MC doesn't want to develop a romance.

Second in the same line the MC is always looking forward to cultivation so rarely he will think or care about... more>> the past. <<less

It just ends up being a worse version of WotMW.

I keep seeing people complain about the dream traversing when it is most of the novel and the best part of it. I mean honestly, the main plot and events happening in the main world and not him visiting others... its all just complete shit, there is no redeeming quality to it whatsoever. Just really badly put together with no aim or reason for anything, characters and plot threads abandoned all over the place and you don't even spend a lot... more>> of the time there anyway.

At least some of the worlds are interesting and they have a story arc. Honestly, some of the worlds and stories he visits would have just been a far better novel if it was just a more fleshed out, stand alone story with none of the other sh*t attached.

As for the start of the story that is oh so praised, I mean its very boring and basic stuff, its better executed in some ways, but that is just cause we're getting introduced to the world and the power levels are low, this is always the case with these types of novels, where there is a lot more structure and cohesion whilst at the low power levels and it all just goes to sh*t when the world opens up.

I just noticed the novel is close to being done and has left me unfulfilled. Way of the devil has less chapters and has done far better. The worst part of this novel is the mc/author rushes through worlds and give them no purpose, but at the same time make them lively to the point you wish it was seen more thoroughly. Many of times when the MC was in a different world I asked myself why is he here again, is he even gaining anything here, and is there... more>> a point to all this. Then usually it's wrapped in a rushed chapter and he is back to what ever random place he calls home base. I wish he would have ranked up his home world and make that a base, but that a long arcing plot point which we don't deserve. Like WMW where the MC had a whole thing dedicated to a sword. This is a far cry from wmw and people say it's a poor man way of the devil I wouldn't be mad like I am about wizard world to wmw. <<less

The premise of the story seemed pretty interesting at the beginning, but then things started to get a bit wonky. The only time when the MC is "carefree" is when he's drinking tea... and maybe when he's slaughtering people left and right. Some of his enemies are treated like piñatas... "Oh how enjoyable it is!", he says to himself.

His personality is all over the place, as if the author wants him to be everything. The scene transitions can be pretty bad at times too. The translation quality is okay; the... more>> English grammar is decent enough but the word choices can be odd at times. This novel is definitely not as good as the authors other work, but decent nonetheless.

Hmm, I wonder if 'The Plagiarist' plagiarized this new novel as well? If so, it would be nice to see what it was based on. For anyone curious what I'm talking about, his past work 'Warlock of the Magus World' was based off of 'The Wizard World'. Both are quite enjoyable. <<less

Started out great, the first dozen chapters are actually quite interesting, then author decided to turn it to a totally different path. If you like the first 40~ chapters, you might not like anything beyond that.

The first few chapters are about base-building, then it becomes action/adventure.

The novel description is misleading. It is not "I suddenly", it is more like "I killed a bunch of people and now they're afraid of me". Started great, but walking off the original base-building into a more of an action/adventure road brought with it a... more>> calamity. <<less

would be great except for the huge plothole and some annoying things

the Author kills too many people

if the world really worked like this, humans would of gone extinct years ago

... more>> I mean basically every character that's trained it whatever power system they have has killed hundreds of thousands of people by the time they get enough "Power" to be considered and "expert" which if you have ever read any of these novels you know that just means they are generally a couple ranks higher than the people around them

these people are killing people faster than they are born

basically the only people that would be alive are the old dudes that kill anyone and everyone for any reason and are powerful enough to run away as soon as anyone comes to kill them for any reason


bad things about this novel

MC becomes that generic Young Master that you commonly see in other novels as in

  • You dare compare a firefly to the sun
  • You dare resist me trying to kill you
  • You dare try and hurt me?!?! I'll slaughter your whole family
  • gets angry and smashes things around him over minor inconveniences
  • does incredibly bad things to people for no particular reason then gets angry when people try and do it right back at him
  • his only fighting words are "Die" and "Kill"
  • MC holds grudges over the littlest of things and even holds grudges over inanimate things I mean read this [Fang Yuan felt the weightlessness and as he felt powerless inside the void, it made him clenched his fist and thought, "One day... I will make sure even this void cannot restrict me!"] this guy will trip over his own feet and then swear to destroy gravity for making him fall
this novel also overuses the word "Demon" basically if any character is slightly stronger than someone else "Demon" person does something you don't like? "Demon" from another world? "Demon" don't particularly like that guys face? "Demon" grows stronger 3.5% faster than someone else? "Demon" they just keep throwing this word around everywhere, I swear they have used this word more than the MCs own name in the entire novel

EDIT : Author does an Arc which is basically alternative earth and while they only mention "China" and do random names for other countries, but you can tell what they are

and the hoooobooy does the Author get right into the Nationalism and racism with talks about Yellow Monkeys and shit

basically when MC was in china country everyone was fine and calling people comrades and stuff then the second he leaves that country and goes to Americ-*cough* I mean Golden Eagle Federation, everyone is immediately racist (kinda right irl though) then the MC being "Righteous" for not immediately killing them and only curses them for the rest of their lives, gets kidnapped, nearly gets sold into s*avery, gets called racial slurs and people point and laugh at him for getting "scammed/kiddnapped" but its MC so he's not really scammed

but you see it... the arc was going well so far, <<less
