A lack of females caused an imbalance of yin and yang destroying the world.

The start of the novel is really bad. 50% of the chapter is just repetitive boosting on how he is the greatest because he is 30000 years from the future. This goes on till about chapter 120, after that it's a decent read and has a good pacing. Unfortunately around chapter 400 the pacing gets super dragged out. I wished the arc to finally conclude but everytime it looked liked it's ending some randome things pop up... more>> and it gets dragged on for another 50 - 200 chapters again and again.

All of Mafa's enemy's are mentally handicapped. This is not a joke. In any other chinese novel those people wouldn't live past three chapters. They are arrogant, unreasonable and ignorant. The only reason they are still alive because their schools will act like you f**ked their mother, sister, wife and daughter in front of them. The villians imagination is limited to a blatant threat or some made up reason framing him to get his stuff/kill him. Nothing else.

super slow pacing, retared villians, bland characters 2/5. <<less

It's not a bad novel if you're not looking into it much. It's a bit cliche considering the generic face slapping and such, but it's a nice breath of fresh air compared to other novels of the same genre. The reason for that is because throughout what I've read up until now there has yet to be a SINGLE female character. All the characters are male which also nicely avoids those annoying 2d females that look down on the MC (and later regrets it) and, any possible love interest and... more>> such. This is just a story dedicated to the MC and his path on becoming the best mage. <<less

  1. Under Rated
  2. Alchemy
  3. MC who is capable and can resolve conflicts without seeming like a showboating teenager
  4. I remember playing Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic as a kid and all the time I spent augmenting my light saber, so I can relate to over 500 chapters finding the right components for his staff, etc
  5. Give this a try. Unfairly hated.
  6. You don't really notice lack of romance stuffunless you think about it. Which is nice for this kind of novel because there is no way for a female lead to keep up with him in an organic fashion. Plus difference in experiences means the likelihood of finding someone compatible is low.
  7. I don't agree with the others who say this is a copy paste of other tropes. MC can determine right from wrong and take appropriate action, like not eliminating entire families because they bumped him. That's a huge change. The main character acts in a mature fashion.
  8. Is it slow, maybe. Not as slow as some, but definitely not as fast as others. MC does have downtime, so that's a plus. He decides what to do mostly instead of other stories where they are always under external pressure. At least in earlier chapters, around chapter 600 we get an arch or two that feel slow. Still interesting to read, but very disappointing..

Guys don't let the first one hundred chapters deter you, the author is new and is trying to find his pacing and style in those chapters.

true there are troups in this story BUT when the plot thickens the serious stuff takes over and BOOM you can't stop, in like two weeks I've finished 500 chapters and I love it. True it isn't the most original novel out there, but it is much better though out than the usual things, most importantly the MC is balanced. Not a complete pu**y nor... more>> is he a ruthless killing machine, also he isn't a hypocrite who contradicts himself.

The world background will get fleshed out and the sense of mystery is grealy convayed. The characters that eereat first introduced as troups duddenly turn into the Mc's friends and confidants.

One of the weird things though honestly is that there has been like only three or less female characters that were mentioned in this novel. Which I find good and bad, the good is that conflict doesn't happen just because the MC is taling to a girl, the bad is that it takes out some of the sense of naturalness out of the story.

but everything else is good enough in my opinion, it isn't a heavey story but it definitely is an enjoyable read and a fun ride, definitely recommend it.

The rating is to offset the flood of negative reviews of people who have read like 50 chapter only the entire novel is 1.5k before you decided if you're committed to a novel like this you should read at least 200 chapters.

All those who quit half way are missing out!! <<less

I tried giving it a read since it’s so high up the chart in QI.. Not worth your time.. Just another OP MC giving everyone a face slapping session. Then again I only read until chapter 20.. So i’m not sure how good it gets in the future chapters. Still, very boring and generic beginning though.

MC came from the future with knowledge spells and other kind of stuff (alchemy knowledge) where resources are abundant (in past) and doing unexpected things (making unstable things stable). But novel droped because of copyright problem

In what is basically Qi's standard operating protocol, this is another new novel with many many 5 star reviews.

I guess all I can do in the spirit of fairness is to give a 1 star review instead.

I mean, Reallly.

Is it asking for too much that a Chinese author manage to grow some balls and write something original? Y'know, instead of using the same old super powerful all knowing devil reincarnating back to a time when everything is abundant so that he can reign supreme because he knows all sorts of... more>> rare and uber powerful recipes and skills? Because that's exactly what this novel is.

Take any one of those novels out there, all 9 trillion of them, SOTR for example, slap on a western shade of paint, where everyone has western names, in a western setting, but somehow act like perfect cultivators, down to the uselessly vicious enemy family across the street that somehow perfectly balanced the scales of power of this tiny Tony tiny tiny tinnnnyyyyyyyyy town, right up until jusssssssst as our MC arrives, whereupon the MCs family instantly falls apart jusssssssst in time for him to save and be a BBBBBadass in the process, a touch of the brainless young masters, the uselessly antagonistic young master's uber perfect elder brother, with a super powerful teacher from the super big sect, that is secretly subordinate to another even bigger super sect, who just so happens to send even more useless grand young masters down to get their assets kicked, and voila, you get this novel.

Why are there even sects in a novel where everyone is walking around with names like Keith?

Anyway, sound familiar anyone? If so, then you already know what you can look forward to in the next 200 chapters. Then he'll go to the next plane/continent/level/dimension where the air there is abundannnnntly MORE powerful and the people there are consistently juuuuussssst a teensy bit more powerful on average, y'know, just so the MC doesn't get to lord about immediately.

In summary? Just another Xuanhuan knockoff by another pathetic copy paste Chinese writer.

I'm Chinese, and I goddamn cry for my home nation's literature level. I mean, even the transmigrator plot point is here, and just like all the other knockoffs, it serves ZERO purpose in the story. All it does is let the author be lazy and write from the perspective of a modern person rather than as a person from the narrative itself.

Or at least as modern a person who is intentionally emotionally and socially crippled purely so that the author can draw a few cheap laughs when they act like the retard they are, ala Library of Heaven's Path (God, I still don't know why people legitimately like to read about retards), and then let them smack some faces, because let's face it, face smacking might as well be the national sport in China if the way these authors keep abusing their works to fit in just one more face smacking scenes is any indication. <<less

"Normally this would be an impossible thing to do... But not for him. Because he is from 10000 years in the future."

This is something you will be reminded again and again every time MC does something, sometimes multiple times in the same chapter. It feels like author thinks that we, as readers, would forget that he is from 10000 years in the future. So he makes it his duty to reminds us that he is in fact from there, and that everything he does is so much better because of... more>> it.

He does not care about the world building, the power system, personalities, normal human interactions, etc. All of it can be called generic and lackluster at best. Everything just feels so empty, just a bunch of pretty words, nothing more. For example we get told different ranks of mages. But what kind of power level they have, what are the feats they can do etc, nothing about that. We just know that the higher rank the stronger they are. Not to talk about monsters. They dont even get ranks, they are just called n-level monster. And same goes for pretty much everything else. Spells, tools, potions, artifacts. We just get bunch of cool sounding names, but nothing really describing it more in detail. Of course unless its about how MC made em so much better cause he is from 10000 years in the future.

The MC is also an absolute power creep, with no challenges so far. The fights are extremely boring. Even though they are using spells, I cant help but to think of cliche xianxia battles, where they punch each other, and then everyone are surprised when MC hits harder. There is no strategy, just MC negating everything and then hitting harder. For example there is a scene where MC is against hundreds of monsters. He complains how this is too difficult, near impossible even for him. And then he just proceeds to cast 1 spell to kill them all. Literally one spell and then once the enemies are all dead says how that was a hard battle.

This might sound that I'm being harsh on the novel and I'm just being mean, trashing the novel and not saying anything good about it. Well, that's cause I didn't really find anything good about this novel lol. And yet I still read this, and will read for at least a bit more, as I'm a sucker for op MC novels.

As a side note I guess the only good thing I could say is that we can expect there to be no harem. Like literally there has been no mention of any females so far. It is as if females don't exist and its only males world. Probably will change further in the novel, but just found it interesting enough to mention. <<less

Fairly boring, to be honest. 3.5/10, another substandard story, readable but not terribly stimulating.

Man transmigrates into a new world, but that world is unfortunately doomed. Thankfully the world has a lot of incredible knowledge, so when the MC transmigrates again he can make good use of the knowledge, right? Sure he does, but it's intensely boring and is just about the most obviously word padded novel I've ever read. You can feel the author stretching out the word count like putty in near every chapter, some much worse than others.... more>> Lots of pointless information thrown around and characters acting like complete morons just to give the MC an excuse to use his magical future knowledge.

Seems like the author lost his way at around ch30+ and just threw out filler because he signed a contract to. Although the premise hooked me and I was pretty excited, the author failed to make good use of it and instead bored me to tears. <<less

The MC is a character who transmigrates into a world of magic, but it actually turns out to be a world that now has severe magic depletion instead. He lives for twenty years until he's abruptly sent something like 30, 000 years into the past and possesses a twenty-year-old magician there instead. Although his future knowledge is very prominent in the story development, his transmigration from our world is completely ignored thus far in the series and doesn't contribute to the plot at all.

He is immensely OP with his knowledge... more>> and precise mana control. Not to mention his luck is completely out of this world. He is calm and intelligent without going out of his way to get revenge or to cause trouble for anyone, so I like his personality a lot. Unfortunately, all of the other characters are not even remotely as intelligent as he is. I'm not just talking about magical knowledge, which would only be expected, but also about their common sense and craftiness. They don't have the slightest amount of cunning or ability to deceive or manipulate others. It's like the MC is a college student competing against and working with a bunch of kindergardeners.

There are numerous plot holes and inconsistencies as well. I plan to continue reading it until it goes premium, but I intend to drop it after that if the series doesn't improve in quality. <<less

I haven't seen a story with so many unnecessary descriptions. At some point, this starts to piss you off because all you are reading is a description of irrelevant things that prove no point to the plot.

... more>>
Spoiler

Raymond's mind was in a total mess, as if it was melting. No problems had arisen when the red coral solution was heated to a high temperature, which was something that Raymond couldn't accept. This was simply like shaming Raymond's knowledge of alchemy. And Okland's alchemy professors had emphasized many times that red coral shouldn't be dissolved into a solution no matter what, let alone having it come into contact with high temperatures.

If he had to choose between this being his own misunderstanding or his professors making such a huge mistake, he would rather believe that everything he had just seen was only a figment of his imagination.

[collapse]

It is just a repetition of what he said in the past two chapters. Happens every single chapter for at least 5 times and it is clear that the author is purposely writing to push the word count higher. Abundant Words does not always mean it will increase the detail and give insight to the readers especially when it is just filler. <<less

This story is pretty much the same when it comes to plot as most wuxia novels out there set in a cultivation world except in this case everyone uses swords or magic, mostly magic, instead of cultivating. Now what does set the story apart, but to be honest is what at least for me puts the story out of whack is the simple fact as to how the story is portrayed and delivered.

To give an example and a small spoiler, pretty much 60-70% of the story for at least the... more>> first 150+ chapters is almost only about how people around the MC looks down on him and/or tries to act against him only for it to blow up in their face.

I am entirely truthful when I say that in an average of 10 chapters 6-7 of the those are from the point of view of someone other then the MC usually the person looking down on him. It's also almost always the same routine 1-3 chapters of the person looking down on and bad mouthing the MC either directly or in their thoughts only for another 1-3 chapters be about how they are oh so regretful for not recognizing Mt Tai.

Now this could be funny if done sparingly but when the whole story is pretty much the same and it's mostly done from the point of view of some idiot first downplaying the MC and then sh*tting their pants out of fear over and over. It get's kind of boring. The plot armor is also fairly thick in the this story, but compared to most other stories it instead really thick for the "bad guys", with either the MC just letting them leave all the time so they can come back again, or something happening like a knock on the door and someone saving the bad guys. It kind of just feels like lazy writing how a character that feels to have outlived their purpose in the story after about 6 chapters is saved by plot armor or some silly reason only to prolong their relevance to the story for at least 20+ chapters.

One point that I realized after a while in this story which I find kinda weird is that in all the chapters I've read not a single female character have been introduced or even mentioned in the story. I kid you not when I say that every single character introduced whether it was a mage, guard, receptionist, merchant, mercenary, alchemist or what not they are all male. In the 150+ chapters I've read only twice and only in a short part have female "characters" been introduced once was illusionary ghosts who were resolved within a few lines, or a blood banshee that was introduced and killed within a single chapter I believe. Except for that the story is a complete sausage party, and no I don't require romance, romantic subplot, harem or what not to enjoy a story I just find it weird when the whole story is completely made up of men. <<less

This is a pretty boring story. There's no real challenge. The hero finds a cheat item, uses it to resolve a problem, and repeats the process. He's way too strong and the nearest disaster seems to be decades or centuries away so the story doesn't have a sense of urgency. There's very little details about the world so the author just pulls random bits out of thin air whenever he needs a new challenge or solution.
