After reading this novel even I feel like "trash". Seriously this is the most annoying novel out there and that's saying a lot as I have read PMG and MGA.

There has to be a character in every chapter who would call MC "trash" even after seeing the superior abilities of MC. Even after getting their asses kicked they would call him "trash".

As for plot: Well, there is no plot. A random guy would bump into MC. Call him trash. Side characters would provide boring commentary on how MC is trash... more>> compared to that hotshot who is from superior clan/sect... MC would kick random guy's ass. Random guy would run away and bring help. The random guy would complain that "trash" humiliated him... repeat.

Author realized that their was no story so he decided to add some mystery on MC's family. Well, in all honesty it hardly matters as the mystery was half baked. Side characters tries to make us believe that they were protecting MC from shadows which hardly seems believable. It seems like author added that plot line randomly.

Really this series is not worth a read unless you want to cough blood from anger after reading it. <<less

That story quickly gets boring, most of the time it simply follows a revenge cycle. Everyone is hostile, condescending, greedy, scheming etc... You can count on one hand the amount of decent characters.

When I read stuff like that, I really wonder how there's still anyone alive in those sort of universe. Plus how can students stay faithful to a sect or want to stay in the sect while they're bullied by everyone, stolen from, spoiled by elders of the sect or they have to become the henchmen of some... more>> duchbag, close their month and don't posses any treasure to be safe. <<less

Extremely disappointed.

This was my first novel which I started reading without checking the ratings and reviews and have never before regretted more. Things that make me wish I would forever forget reading this novel. EVERYTHING.

Anyone who has continued to follow ATG and MGA then I recommend them this, as it's similar to both and slightly faster level ups and more clear (defeatable) goons that pop up. As for me 30 chapters in and I wish I could scrub my brains clean of the profound sh*t that I just read.

I gave up which is rare for me. Firat of all the MC is a reborn from earth where he was the king of killers. Which means exactly nothing. He is not particularly skilled relying on brute force (which the author constantly tells you in numbers). So the fights are dull. There is no plot that I can see. This is the worst kind of repetitive because at least with omg and mga you could at least be interested in the new techniques or treasures which is not the case... more>> here. And I'm just going to say it again. Why was this guy resurrected. It feels like something the author just stole but can't justify. He has no skills that matter. <<less

I like the story and will continue reading, but my only problem I have is that the MC used to be the "King of Killers" in his previous life and he mentions it several times through out the series. However, he is quite soft to be a former "King of Killers", he has shown mercy to enemies that were after his life several times.

Dragon Martial Emperor is undoubtedly the worst Chinese novel I've ever read. This novel is the epitome of 'suicide fiction', fiction that when read makes you want to kill yourself.

This novel is a painful abomination of mediocrity, stupidity and uninspired ramblings mixed together in a book shaped pot.

I will never be able to fully communicate my hate and derision for this novel, if the term 'quality writing' ever had an antithesis it would be this novel.

... more>> For the sake of time I'll stop screaming and start explaining.

Plot

Save parents is one small plot point, which is very original and beyond it's time.

Offend everybody in the world who isn't subservient is another plot point, once again another creative and fresh plot. This author never seems to run out of creative genius.

And look for the concubine girl who gave him his dragon-powers. Truly brilliant.

Offend everybody is the main plot though, saving parents and looking for little dragon concubine is the backup plot for filler. Running out of things to write and need to pad the character count? Just have the MC reaffirm his desire to find parents and little dragon concubine, but make sure he makes no headway towards either of those goals. You wouldn't want to run out of such quality filler after all.

Saving friends could also be counted as plot as well, after all it happens after nearly every arc.

Characters

Enemies are beyond dumb, beyond arrogant, beyond greedy, beyond rapey and beyond anything resembling a character.

Friends are overwhelmingly dumb, overwhelmingly helpless, overwhelmingly meek and overwhelmingly boring and the same.

Keep in mind that characters with names can only ever be in one of these two groups. The author doesn't understand such things as a none MC oriented character, if you don't have an opinion on the MC which is either extreme love or extreme hate you're not a named character.

MC

The MC's personality can be completely described with the saying "tit for tat."That's all he is, a saying that can talk. He has no personality. He has no personal motivations. He has no existence other than "tit for tat."

Romance

There is no romance. I usually praise Chinese novels for having no romance, since it's as if the authors realized they couldn't write romance, and decided to focus on the things they could write. Focusing on one's strength and all that. But I honestly can't muster any such praise for this novel, if this novel did have romance it would most definitely be bad and make the novel even more horrid. But even with no romance this novel is aids personified, so really how much extra harm would a little romantic aids do to an already festering novel?

Cultivation

The cultivation in this novel is boring. The cultivation is nothing, truly nothing. Eat pills and gather energy. Gain boring insights that are never described nor even gained in an interesting fashion. I've read my share of boring cultivation systems but this one takes the cake. The author doesn't even make it look interesting, even the author of KOG had the decency to make his boring system appear interesting.

The abilities the MC gains through his dragon bloodline and his plot armour are complete insipid boors. Scream Loud Skill. Hit Strong Law. Scary Dragon Attack. Big Spear Poke. Etc. Etc.

Rating

Of course I give it a Chinese 1/10.

This aid-riddled, obscenity posing as a novel should be burnt and buried.

And if you like this novel.... Get checked for autism. <<less

The best way to describe this novel is dull. As other reviewers have pointed out, it is basically a copy-paste of all the classic genre troupes. Any points that could potentially make it stand out from the crowd have been mostly abandoned by the author.

For example, the fact that the main character was the "King of Killers" in his previous life is a potentially interesting point that became essentially completely useless after just a few chapters. This fact serves no real purpose, and it makes one question what the point... more>> was of even making him reincarnate at all, since it does nothing for the story.

The translation is understandable, but clunky. There are points where it is clear that some of the deeper meaning is lost, and it lacks a certain polished feeling. That being said, there are certainly worse translations out there, so how much you care about this bit is up to you.

Basically, if you are someone who has read a decent amount of these kinds of novels, you are probably better off not wasting your time. If you are not yet used to/jaded about the various classic troupes seen in these kinds of novels, and you don't mind the slightly clunky translation, then go ahead and give it a shot.

Personally, I have already decided to drop this novel, and don't intend to return to it in the future. <<less

Reviewed at 92 chapters, rated 3 star -if not 2-

If previously you have read Martial God Space, then you’ll probably recognize that Dragon Martial Emperor has similar plot pattern, particularly regarding the one-dimensional MC, half-cooked mystery in his past, countless undeveloped side characters and cliche enemies, as well as its endless rout of trashed-train-power up-fight-trashed-train-power up-fight-trashed-train... well, you know the drill. Both novels are seemingly written by different author, but their narrative and story pattern are surprisingly similar (at least, in their translated version).

Until the latest chapter, there has been... more>> no advances in the story except for its expanding world construct, the MC cultivation rank, and the number of enemies killed. No character building, no significant hooks, no emotional romance...

It’s still got that something charming within xianxia/xuanhuan genre that may lead people to keep coming back for more, at least to be read in their leisure time. However, the ones that come back won’t be me. Having marathoned around 90 chapters and feeling sleepy all the while, my interest toward this novel is fading fast. <<less

Reincarnated MC that happens to be killer with mentality of 14 y/o. Absolutely boring story that follow typical xianxia stuff. Absolutely nothing new in this story and its a waste of translator effort.

A novel about the fools, debris and intolerable, pride, revenge Interesting start, stupid and narrow-minded hero characters. The protagonist is a powerful cheat a little unusual. But in general it all, everything else is very common, not remarkable novel. Just a meeting of the cycle - the insults and bullying - the destruction of the enemy, the enemy has a strong Relatives Mesto meeting. Monotonous and quickly bored.

In the history stated that the character was the king of killers in a past life, but he does not use the knowledge... more>> in this life. The hero is too naive and soft.

All the female characters with him: cruel, greedy, and not at all interesting, not memorable. <<less

Quite disappointing

From here on ch.90 below. The novel suddenly turn and literally feels like 'Long Yu against the world". Every two chapter or so, long yu will kill somebody and another two chapter someone will attack him for revenge. which turns the novel into a revenge cycle which reminds me of PMG, and, truly the whole endless revenge in this story is f*cking frustrating. I literally can only see long yu happy when he get a breakthrough or when he is with the lele girl. (which is slightly better than... more>> PMG because lin feng in pmg is always cold and only smile every 30 chapter or so..). All the people in this story is literally Prideful to the bone. That's why I feel that the future chapters will be filled with mindless endless killing and revenge.

I was expecting for more... unfortunately the revenge system blew it. <<less

Initial impressions after Ch.70.

Very average, very ordinary. There’s nothing special about this story. All the standard tropes are out in force in this one: unable to cultivate, bullied by the clan, found a secret, went elsewhere to train, gets bullied again but this time with the secret’s help manages to fight back, gets saved by an elder, trains, prepares for tournament...

It’s a conveyor belt of the usual antagonists: the haughty one, the lackeys wanting to curry favor, the prideful cultivators from the same clan, the elder brother of someone... more>> who was defeated, the talented cousin, the teacher of a defeated one, enemies of the clan, enemies of the sect...

Even the dialogue is standard, the usual “slap yourself 10 times and crawl” “courting death!” “how dare you!” “die!”. The characters are one-dimensional, and discarded once their role in the plot is over. Those who are given more ‘screen time’ are hampered by abrupt changes (the coming and going of two female characters in chapters 64-65). Even the MC’s transmigrated background of a “King of Killers” is hardly mentioned later on, and it makes you wonder whether such a setting was necessary in the first place. No mentions of how his previous life’s experiences could be useful aside from a few instances bringing up his killer instinct, as everything has been supplanted by the martial arts and cultivation of the new world.

The translation is very rough, readable but lacks polish. You can understand the text and the dialogue, but some quality is lost along the way.

So, is there any reason to read this over other similar titles? There isn’t anything remarkable about the story. For people used to the genre, you’re not getting anything new or special after 20 chapters. For newcomers, the translation might be disconcerting. In the end, perhaps as a time filler while waiting for other releases. <<less

The story is quite fast paced and the MC has it a bit too easily. His troubles are not well described and he faces standard xianxia villains left and right.

The story is OK but there are some annoyances in the plot. One is that after a certain time of seeing the MC again and again beat people of higher level maybe the side characters should stop calling him trash and start to think that maybe just maybe he is good at martial arts.

Like any Xianxia it’ll have its faults. The I used to be a super assassin thing is a bit hard to swallow at least in the beginning. You’ll get why its important later on if you stay. What I find amusing about this story are the girls. Usually girls in Xianxia are weak and get raped (you know like elfs). Girls in this series are vicious and ruthless. And the MC always seems to get on their bad side (irony). For me at least its better than the default bad_guy... more>> trope that gets old fast. In that regard it breaks from convention.

I heard a lot of people complaining about his foster father’s daughter. Saying how its stupid how she tried to kill him. Pretty much she thinks that her father never cared about her and only him. So when her father told her she was going to marry him it infuriated her. Actually this MC would’ve of killed her a long time ago since hes already had several chances. He didn’t do that because shes his foster’s father daughter. Yeah women don’t magically follow in love with the MC they die too.

Technically he isn’t banished. He decides to leave. The description is pretty misleading.

Pros: Crazy princess chick who will ruthlessly kill anyone.

Its not a harem since almost every girl hes met so far as tried to kill him have either died or lost plot relevance.

He has a very cool bro.

The authors have females in this novel dying. (Mind breaking)

Cons: Typical Xianxia tropes. I’ll kill you cause you have something I want yadada.

MC has super ultra uber op nine-headed dragon tattoo that helps him train real fast.

Characters introduced will lose relevance later on.

Power struggles, power struggles and more power struggles.

I gave it four stars. Why? For once one of the antagonist isn’t a freaking dude with pearly jade skin. Guys with female features... why is this always thing in xianxia and wuxia. <<less

Great story and likable MC he’s hardworking, fearless and sometime ruthless with good fight scene, cultivation power level, and romance, it’s kinda like RPG theme’s when the equipment bring additional power to user if you like xianxia/wuxia story and decent MC this is for you

A story about a man who reincarnates into a "trash" body who has a fiancee who wants to kill him. Anyways we follow him on his road of cultivation and all the bumps he happens to come across on his path.
This story has its own unique power up scheme instead of a magical treasure or pill, we get to see the learn new things and stick up to people who bully him. I recommend this as another XianXia novel that one can read.. :D

Pass life is no1 assasin

New life, some noob madman I think, he kill enemy under 100 camera/thousand eye, he's not super saiyan that can kamehame destroy city silent the witness yet he still do it, some even let go enemy that shout and do everything to kill him, I guess his pass life is not assasin but a monk lol. Always rush, didnt do thing like in interrogated enemy that fall into his hand, basically he refuse to use his brain/ intel. He even use his real name even know... more>> all in world is looking to make trouble to him

Can read but dont expect something like pro assasin/good scheme MC, he just like vip newbie lvl 1 that start a game with armor lvl 100. Im still doubting he is assasin or monk in his pass life. Thats all <<less
