Before I start, I really wanted to press fourth star but my hand accidentally pressed the third star. My original score for this is 3.5/5 but I am a nice guy so I round it to 4.

The whole plot is not boring but it is neither good. The side character are blant and the sometimes the conflict is horribly written for the climax. The only good part is our protagonist which has the attitude which is unique in wuxia. If there is a thing, I don't like about the MC... more>> that is he is a hypocrite. Though I like harem, this novel just freaking stupid, for me, in this department. <<less

It's fair to say that I've read a fair bit now and so I decided to write this review.

First thing- This story has a really great and dedicated translator. This is not me commenting on the english syntax and grammar, but rather the eye to detail and all the considerations given to the names and explanations. Truly a splendid job.

The idea of the plot is that a human boy was trapped in the form of a crow for millennia upon millennia. To escape, he started a grand plan of training... more>> as many capable people as possible to over time, slowly lessen the control of this mysterious being over him. The story starts with him just having escaped and picks up from there...

In a sense, this is a very common plot. OP character that does OP things with the ambition of ruling the world. Yet, it's not the same.. The MC isn't the usual type of genius (technically). While it's sometimes easy to overlook, he's been through millions of years of self-development and that much experience is bound to make one smarter. I do enjoy how at almost any given time, all that is happening is in the palm of his hands- partially because I have a bias for such OP-ness.

The MC himself surprises me sometimes. His character is quite contradictory but over the chapters you understand his stances better. While he can't be called very emotionally charged he is very sentimental. The whole, "the passage of time can be so cruel, " idea is prevalent throughout but in a way, it can be rationalised or even empathised with. It makes him more human.

The harem- oh the harem... Most females at his side start the same way- arrogant at first until 'tamed' by him. I do find his interactions with any female characters that are loyal to him or friendly with him quite nice- it has a certain tranquility around it because it's usually his 'ephemeral moment of peace'. Especially since I am not a fan of polygamy-themed stories, I found this very surprising. The horn-dog type of personality is missing. That doesn't mean there is no male chauvinism, tho. There are times when the modern woman in you wants to beat him.

All in all- a great OP story for all the OP fanatics out there. Especially those who dislike polygamy and rape tagged stories... Cause while he may have his s*xist moments, he still is respectful... <<less

I'd say its a pretty good novel, however author screws it up quite a bit in my opinion, why?

Author portrays LQ as indomitable, fearless, strong, ruthless, doesn't give second chances to people who screw him over. However every spin he makes author has him fighting pointless battles with poor plot fodder. Novel is drastically expanded due to plot fodder, I mean sure every novel has some worthless parts, but truly there hasn't been any worthwhile events in this novel that I can remember.

I liked the book and premise and the fact that the MC is somewhat different from most other story. Unlike many books of the same genre, the MC focuses less on fighting but more on gathering specific counters for specific situations which I found interesting. Fighting seems to be his last solution probably because his cultivation level focuses on perfection rather than on speed, he is still quite fast though compared to others of the same generation. It might be because his interactions with other characters tend to be people... more>> of another generation who had way longer to cultivate and amass their strength.

World building is nothing too special, you got the generic multiverse like world and a rather cliche storyline. However, the book is a lot better in Chinese maybe because the idioms and humor is better understood in the original language? I'll be honest, I kind of forgot where I stopped but I believe its about 1800 or so at the end of an story arc.

There are some parts the story that connects to something really late for example:
Spoiler

during the funeral ship? Ghost ship? Part the story it introduces the woman he picks a ship for that at the time seems irrelevant except for getting an item, however, she becomes extremely relevant like 1000 chapters later

[collapse]

One thing I really disliked is the fact that many characters that are important to the story at one area is completely discarded and basically never mentioned in the next area. Feels bad they are basically abandoned.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, personally I'd give it a 3.5 but I feel bad giving it a 3 cause I liked it so I gave it a 4. Would recommend, but slightly on the long side. <<less

I actually really enjoy this novel. Of course it's absolutely full of face slapping cliches, but I think it goes all out in the RIGHT way. The main character is ridiculously arrogant, but it feels more believable due to his backstory. I mean, most of the legends the world talk about were trained by him! He's lived for a ridiculously long time too. That makes other main characters who act incredibly arrogant because they're living a second life or re- living their life seem like clowns jumping around.

He... more>> also doesn't solve everything using his own brute force. A lot of the times, he'll use his unbelievable knowledge to face slap. It seems right that he knows prety much everything, as opposed to other main characters who died in their first life at like 40 yet somehow have the same god like knowledge.

Another thing I admire is that he's not a stereotypical horn dog, even when surrounded by good looking women. It does feel as though a harem is going to be set up eventually, but he's not sleeping with women left and right without pause.

If you're looking for a realistic down to earth main character, then this won't be your cup of tea. However, if you go in knowing he's going to be ridiculously overpowered (and rightly so), I think you'd enjoy binge reading this novel. It's just a shame that it's going to take forever for this to be completely translated. Heck, the author is still writing it at about 3, 000 chapters and not even half of that has been translated at the time of this review. <<less

If you like Incredible MC steamrolled everyone every single time and feel satisfied with it, then this is the novel for you.

If you like extremely long world building and arrogant cannon fodder look down on MC every single time, then this is the novel for you.

Spoiler

Powersclaing in this novel is way Over The Top with every fight the worlds are destroyed all the time.

The minor completion of one of the best physique, make MC fist weight 1000 mountains. This is without any Qi or any skill to back it up, just pure Brute Force

Spoiler

Also, MC arrogant pierce the heaven, if he can change it to power, he will instantly become the strongest for all eternity.

Read this if you like an OP MC that is confident because he has actually has the skills and knowledge. EDIT: Re-reading again after reaching to the current chapters and honestly its full of "fillers" from now but I still want to read it because its pretty damn entertaining and interesting due to the fact that there are still alot I want to know about the MC.

Spoiler

Pros:

    1. Intersting lore
    1. MC is not one dimensional (cough cough MGA)
    1. Like the aspect of "bitch slapping moments" ? This novel have alot of this.
    1. Not a cringy 14 year old kid whenever he interacts with females.

Cons:

    1. The amount of information gathers up after hundreds of chapter that makes you want to make a list on the things he acquired/met/history. It gets confusing when he suddenly pulls out an item from his spatial pouch that he got a couple of chapters ago.
    1. It becomes more of a "Oh yeah I forgot I have something in this place" then something happens and he goes again "oh yeah I forgot this thing too exists in this place might as well go". The main point of his "mission" gets pushed backward again and again after a couple of this scenarios (ex. The Nether World arc and that freakin island)
    1. After hundreds of chapters the author just went full blown MGA peanut gallery writing where 90% of chapters consist of people talking how strong someone is or what kind of backing this guy has. A simple fight can last around 5 chapters to resolve because the author just packs so much redundant stuff (Past information from earlier chapters).
    1. Cultivation is really really confusing and hard to remember (I gave up remembering different levels after 100+ chapters). Also kinda useless to MC where he just jumps on higher tier enemies because of his OP "physique".

LOL the only problem of this novel is that everytime the MC talks arrogantly the crowd always reacts negatively only to find out that the MC has unfathomable strength, vast knowledge, many secrets etc. Then awkwardly silent after knowing. This kind of scene goes on to the 3rd world he's in I don't know if this kind of scene will go on until the novel ends damn! It's really tiring to read those fillers that the author makes so I skip some convo of the crowd and some description that... more>> becomes redundant on and on until I read the important part of the story. <<less

I give this 5 stars just because people around the main character aren't dense they understand the MC is insane and the MC isn't pretending to be a saint. This guy actually fits the domineering personality he isn't like the MC from ATG, arrogant without any plan. This guy knows what hes doing he always has some form of defense against his enemies but his fights are usually very brutal. I just hate the hundreds of MC explained in an arc, the explanations are sometimes dense.

Emperor's Domination has some major problems. Normally I'd try to list those but, frankly, I'm too lazy to go through each one. Instead, I'll try to keep things short. Aside from the world building, this story, in three hundred and forty-two chapters, failed to garner any real interest from me. That's right, the reason I read as much as I did was purely because I liked the setting. That was Emperor's Domination's only redeeming quality in my eyes.

The novel is like an RPG game with good lore but boring, repetitive gameplay--if you can get past the superfluous and tedious passages, this story actually has an interesting plot framework and world building. I'd recommend this novel, but I can't rate it as more than 3 stars because it would be a disservice to other authors who actually puts a lot more effort into their story. There's not a lot of depth to the characters as most of the enemies are as cookie-cutter as they come.

There are over 2400+ chapters in this ongoing series yet there's only maybe enough actual story for 1100 chapters. I think that speaks a lot of how much the author runs up the word count for the sake of word count. As the story progress, you see the author recycling passages and sometimes close to entire chapters--almost literally word for word--just to increase the word count.

Best Xianxia I've read up to date. All these bad reviews summarized in few points:

MC is millions of years old and acts so arrogant? It can't be because I personally know how a million year old guy would act and it wouldn't be like this.

The plot is too repetitive. People talk badly about MC and then get trashed. thats it. Basically almost every Xianxia but hey still got to hate on this trope because its a Xianxia not being original *facepalm*

I dislike Xianxia novels anyways but I still review it... more>> just because I can.

Too little detail on cultivation.

Characters too flat (which I have to agree on)

...

Do you know why people read Xianxia? FOR THE DOMINATION TROPE. And this novel does it in the best way. Sure its repetitive. Sure the characters are flat. But when the MC slaps people in the face, I am pretty sure you will be going "f**k yeah." <<less

2/5 stars not 3

The story had promise. I liked the premise initially but I'm not a fan of this author's writing style. The MC is arrogant which makes sense given he is an almighty god pretty much but most of the trouble gets into is because he is arrogant. Side characters are all 1 dimensional and boring, no depth at all. All the villains are copy paste that I can't remember who is who because they all act the same. The only good about this Story is the MC and... more>> that's not even that great.

One thing that really bothers me is this authors use of description. Sometimes half his chapters are filled with a bunch of BS that I had to skip because I got tired of reading it. Now don't get me wrong I love world building but his style of writing made it a hassle to read.

Spoiler

I also have an issue with how stupid the side characters are. Obviously there is allot of stuff this supposed 15 year old kid should not know but they are always suprised and never do suspect anything. I mean the topic of reincarnation or living longer comes up plenty of times so you would think maybe this "kid" isn't really 15. And the author always inserts it after every situation ie. everyone else is suprised but Li Shuangyan having spent time with Li Qiyi was not surprised... OK I GET IT why does it mention it every single time without fail.

[collapse]

TLDR: Arrogant MC (has pros and cons), Crap Side Characters, Interesting plot bad execution, Confusing writing style, Bad habits, Crappy Villains (copy and paste), Bad Cultivation structure (confusing) <<less

Reasons why you should definitely read this novel:

1. It's action packed! Lots of bloody scenes, battles, and adventures. Makes you want to kick ass too.
2. The MC is OP. Most of the time the MC is calm and composed but when challenged r.i.p to thy enemies! (*Cough cough* Regarding others views on the MC being too arrogant >>> MC has tons of knowledge and secrets therefore wouldn't you act cocky too? It's reasonable for him to act that way. Yet he isn't cocky to the point were he kills... more>> innocent people just for his amusement.)
3. There isn't much romance so far (a big plus for me). There is a harem of maids tho.
4. Translation is amazing! 5/5

Reasons why you might not like this novel:

1. MC is really dense when it comes to romance.
Spoiler

He gets kissed once in the lips after like 450 chapters later and it was the girl who had the guts to act first. Nothing much happened after that.

[collapse]

2. Along the MC's adventures he meets beautiful women. Some end up liking him. They get annoying pretty fast especially the ones that were arrogant towards the MC before they find out that the MC is freaking badass.
3. So many characters. Can't remember who was who any more. Need to have a list of names with info besides me to remember who they were.
4. Alot of info on laws is sometimes repeated. I tend to skip chunks of that stuff. <<less

The story is somewhat slow with the 160 chapters feeling like a prologue. The main character is a know it all existence with the only negative that he is humorless and bland not a character to write a novel about. The translation seems fine.

The story has the worst pacing I have ever seen with no character and story development in 160 chapters we don't even know yet the main characters motives and thoughts. The chapters pacing also sucks with chapters ending and starting randomly as an example chapter 161 ended... more>> mid conversation.

I rate it 3 stars despite the novel's huge flaws as the novel is highly entertaining. <<less

Let's start with the bad things

First, the book world is insanely complicated, and doesn't do much exposition initially. There's like 100 titles for the varying cultivations that are comprised of three separate systems, with an unending number of techniques, people, items, and places

Second, the writing is okay at best. Li Qiye will always overpower his opponent with vast knowledge, cheat abilities, or by deus ex machina. Li Qiye's opponents will always underestimate him, and be defeated. The cycle continues for 800 chapters, the only thing that changes are the means... more>> and the enemies.

Simply put, Li Qiye is too overpowered for the book's own good. All he ever does is seek more power, and it will probably be another 4000 chapters before he reaches the point that he talks about all the time. <<less

This is a bit diferent than the usual wuxia novel. Why? There are no powerups because the main character does not need them. He does not need friends he needs soldiers.... more>>
Spoiler

Well most all of them are females but he said that he likes smart/talented females

[collapse]

Second thing is he was almost something greater than a GOD and immortal for milions of milions of milions of years so I belive that is from where his arrogance is comming from.

There are no big plots or young masters or great characters or gods that he is afraid of his actions and reasons are all well explained. Also there actualy is a deeper story behind all of this witch is not bad. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that he is predictable. When someone comes and starts acting arrogantly infront of him that probaply means that character will die in a horrible way and it happens realy fast. Some characters and locations that he visits are fast forgotten witch is also a bit of a problem for me 691 chapters seems allot but belive me the storry just goes on like crasy not looking back and I realy dont know if this is a good thing or not. I like it is fun to read and you just cant wait for the next crasy thing that will happen. Also thaat bothers me a bit is every strike or ability used is WAY to exaggerated, srsly to much. Shattering the havens the nine worlds trembeling riping the void etc.

All in all not bat for a fast read if you like wuxia novels I have given it 5 stars but its more like 4/5

Sorry for bad english <<less

Update at C3306:

Chapter quality has gone down the drain with only one line or few lines worth of progression of plot in each. Chapters have also been shortened.

Update at C3281:
... more>>
Spoiler

All his cultivation got reset, the whole plot of the novel has been dumped in the trash can. He resurrected millions of years later with the destruction of the previous world. New cultivation system and new laws.
Same tropes, same long unnecessary background and foreground details. Same repetitive arrogant young masters and shocked public. Same OP MC, now just he can destroy even higher level characters with no cultivation.

WTF

[collapse]
------------------------------------
The plot is the typical xianxia, cultivate, massacre, cultivate cycle. With the massacre part starting with idiotic enemies being arrogant and then MC being arrogant even more, then the inevitable fight and MC's win. The plot does progress with unique elements and environments sprinkled on top of that unending cycle which makes it better than most. How MC does cultivation though gets little exposition, thankfully. But cultivation techniques, characters and situations get extreme repetitive foreshadowing which makes each chapter not very fulfilling overall. Like for example, if spoken lines are followed by paragraphs with none, you can safely label it as filler as that will never be mentioned again after the arc. One only needs to remember the names of stuffs.

The Harem members like other xianxia are mostly relevant to the arcs they get introduced, afterwards you may only see them post-climax of some other arcs. Its like a passersby conversation before MC goes somewhere else. But at the very least they don't acknowledge the MC quickly and there is good healthy banter between them till they do. And not all girls fall for the MC, which is a good thing.

The Enemies are idiots, no questions asked.

Overall its a nice novel, one can easily accommodate in his daily schedule as each chapter has very low amount of actual content. The plot is good which has made me hold onto it till now. I may make an abridged edition of the translation down the line maybe for later re-reads. <<less

So-so

Chapter 30-50 is full of explanation and less action.

This novel is full of annoying side characters who's always jealous of the MC because 'their' self-proclaimed goddess is stolen by the MC. Even the audience with no names are being jealous without apparent reason at all. They just wanted to be jealous and think that all the female beside the MC is theirs.
