Just read up to ch700+ of this novel, and I will say that this is one of the best novel in this genre.

First plus of this novel, not a harem novel and MC doesn’t think with his penis and only have eyes for FL.

Second plus, drama doesn’t drag out too long and I feel like the pacing is good.

... more>> Third plus, interaction of MengMeng, ML and FL,

Fourth plus, good side characters.

Total, this is a very good novel and you should give it a try. Though there are also flaws in this novel, I mean which novel doesnt right, with how good the novel is, the flaws really doesnt annoy or irritate me much. <<less

this is very underrated, if you see the plotline, is nothing new. But the way author make them full of emotion is very good. For example, I knew MC will slap a lot of people, but the interaction with his daughter and wife, makes me smile. This is what a cultivator should have. As the old word says: The sword technique is the same, but without sword intent, you cant bring out the true power.

Hello, I'm the translator of this novel. This novel is currently the best '奶爸‘, aka 'stay-home dad' novel I have read in my opinion. I'm not really good at giving a review but I will try.

The starting of the novel is quite bad in my opinion as it gives the readers the opinion of "Oh... another cliche young master beating up other arrogant young masters continuously, going around raising his cultivation to get to the peak of cultivation kind of novel." But this is not the kind of novel that... more>> it is.

Rather, this is sort of a slice of life focused novel in my opinion and is not, I repeat, NOT an action-focused novel.

However, do give this novel up to at least chapter 30~

The novel starts to get good around ch30 in my opinion and gets really good from ch150 onwards.

And for a bonus, the MC is actually mature and not childish for someone who has lived for over 500 hundred years, unlike other novels where it was pointed that the MC was over a thousand-year-old but act like some teenager hitting puberty.

Even in the raw, many people also felt that the start of the novel was really bad and cliche and in the later chapters was where the novel starts to shine.

Spoiler

Around the part when Zhang Han opened a restaurant and accepted a gorilla into his land is where it starts to get good in my opinion. Also, this novel is a blend of everything. There is romance, action, family, cooking, music, and other stuff. Although it is a slice of life focused sort of novel, the author managed to put all the other elements into the novel without making the story bad, and instead actually makes the story get better and better.

[collapse]

Also, after reading the reviews of others, I want to point out that this novel is not a racist and 'China number 1' sort of novel. Apart from the start where Zhang Han changed his daughter name to a Chinese name that has his surname, where others would feel that it was racist, there is really no racism at all in the rest of the novel from what I can recall.
Spoiler

It has to be noted that both Zhang Han and Zi Yan, the father and mother of Meng Meng are from China. Zi Yan is not a foreign. Also, I'm not sure about other countries, but if you came from a big, powerful Chinese family (家族), I think that it was a must to take the surname of your family and a Chinese name or else you would be shaming your family.

[collapse]

Spoiler

Adding on, later on, a foreign (side character) is even introduced and there is really no racism but story flow that makes one smile.

[collapse]

Overall, there may be some flaws in the novel, but do wait until there are more translated chapters. I assure that the novel will definitely be enjoyable for most readers during the chapters later on.

I would give this novel a 4 or 4.5 star out of 5. But since I'm the translator of this novel, I will be biased and give it a 5. ^^ <<less

Hands down one of the best novel of this genres (city and stayhome dad) that I have read. Better yet, its currently in my fav top 5 novel.

This novel goes from bad to good to extremely good. Im currently at ch353 of the raw and I can say the story at this point makes one crave for more chapters.

The character development in Godly Stay-Home Dad is quite good. Readers can see how ZhangHan goes from being the typical city cultivation asshole MC who would destroy anyone who stood in his... more>> path to a caring, much warmer, tolerant and better person due to his daughter Meng Meng and his other family members.

Have to give credit to the author too for being able to make the story interesting yet not dull by combining the aspects of cultivation and family love. It feels like that are abit of everything in the novel, but the story still flows really well. Although there are some points which I didnt like, for example
Spoiler

ZhangHan giving songs to other artists at ch50~ or smth. Felt like that was a really boring part honestly. And also the ZiYan's company young master should have been finished off long ago in my opinion, the young master is too annoying but yet at ch353, he is still alive. But everyone had their own preferences so yeah.

[collapse]

Rate this novel 5/5 because novel of this genre that is this good is very scarce. Trust me, I have read over 50 high ranking of novel of this genre at both qidian and zongheng and this is hands down one of the best.

Ps. For people who think this novel is racist? I want to point out that there is a difference between racism and nationalism. If some of you think that this novel is racist... you guys havnt seen what racism is lol. Also, reading up to ch 353, I honestly havent seen anything that I feel is racist. Just to point out, although I can read Chinese, I am not a person from China so my opinion is not bias. <<less

Have read a bit through the raws. 3.5/5 for me. The MC here isn't as bad as those in your typical cultivation novels. But he isn't much better, either.

The author, while trying to depict the differences in perspective between a cultivator and ordinary people, unfortunately isn't able to avoid making the MC seem like a snob.
Spoiler

MC just used to be an incompetent, down-on-luck young master before he got really lucky. What's he got to be so arrogant about? To make things even worse, he is trying to inculcate the same attitude into his young daughter.

I remember a scene where the MC admonishes his daughter for calling her (well-intentioned) caretaker names. He impresses upon her the need to respect her well-wishers- a very heartwarming scene, indeed, of a father instilling values into his child. But then, he just had to add, "Even if they are just ants" (or something to that effect). It makes me wonder: What exactly did the daughter learn from this?

As for the name-changing thing that other reviewers have mentioned, while I can somewhat understand wanting to give one's child a native name as a tribute to one's cultural heritage/ancestry, what I don't understand is his selfishness of wanting his daughter to have both his surname as well as a given name of his choosing. Doesn't the mother (who carried her for nine months and raised her, putting her career on hold) get the right to a part of the daughter's full name? He even manipulates the daughter into rejecting the first name her mother gave her, just bcuz it's an English one.

I like the concept overall, but I'm deducting 2 stars for the following:

    1. Way too slow. I like my slice of life but c'mon, author, a single day spanning multiple chapters, for every single day is probably the slowest I've ever seen. 3 days was the longest time-skip I've come across so far.
    2. In about a month of in-novel time, I think I've read about 10 different rapist young masters thirsting after FMC, and it's getting bloody annoying and out of hand.
Beware: this novel also has an ungodly amount of forced drama.

Agree to whatever the translator said, give it a chance, the first 30 or so chapters did get on my nerve but after MC get together with his child's mom that is where the good stuff starts.

It is a light read that focussing on slice of life although there is some action to get the story going. Problems/crisis does not drag for too long, the pace is just right.

Just what has already been said, for me, I think MC has the right mentality for a 5++years old dude. He really... more>> settles down and be a stay at home dad, he does not crazily search for power but still OP, always thinking about his daugther and wife. <<less

One of my favorite Chinese novels, it has a nice balance of character development and action. It takes a while to really get going in my opinion, but it's worth putting the time in (20-30 chapters). The author seems to be better at foreshadowing than his peers (something webnovelists are particularly lacking), as things casually mentioned a few hundred chapters back suddenly become important. Worth the read.

This is actually a very good novel. Give it a try for a few chapters, you'll totally love it! Mengmeng is a very likeable character! Zhang Han is quite overbearing, but what can we do? He lived hundreds of years already in immortal world, so it's totally understandable how his 'great' mind worked. For the female lead, though her character is quite stupid sometimes due to her 'star' career, she's still become a good woman and wife later on for MC. Not to forget, those annoying and to-die-character young masters,... more>> they exist in this novel *chuckle*.

Oh, romance is quite good in this novel. As well as martial arts and cultivation. It's actually interesting how the mysteries revolving around MC (his past a.k.a memory in immortal world), MC's wife (one of the mysterious character in this novel;

you just can't wait to know what's the secret of her being

[collapse]
) and MC's child (
Spoiler

well currently stated she's the only child can be birthed by MC and FL so far; no little brother that she wanted

[collapse]
).

Overall, it's either going to be one of your favorite novel out there or you'll never like this kind of slice of life genre novel. As for me, it's beautifully done. One chip from me! <<less

This is very similar to "Gourmet Another World" but where Loli is the daughter. This is mostly filled with filler scenes with badly written scenarios with only Zhao Feng taking action while MC behaves like a spirit adviser. This story all about Zhou Feng and not MC. The Author can't even face-slap properly. Read my spoilers.

MC: He lacks presence in the story. He's bland and indifferent about things then it comes to bite him back in the @ss, all because he ignored the problem! What's worst, MC even spares half... more>> of the people who wanted to ruin Heroine life! [Might Change in future]
Spoiler

The MC still sees himself as Immortal Han and has that Immortal mindset. Like where does the confidence come from? He still sees ordinary people as Ants! Do you now understand my frustration when I read this?lol He almost lost everything if it weren't for the fact the guy had help from his father.

[collapse]

Heroine: I like her but she keeps being manipulated by the same trick and it's all her fault! Even her Company sold her out many times to sleep with other guys to earn them money.
Spoiler

Yet she keeps believing this industry. She knew they were the MC enemies and still signed the contract. Sigh. What bothers me the most is that she talks big but doesn't have anything in her artillery to show for it. It just has to be MC saving her. Even after knowing this she's still with them till she mentally breaks down to MC! She thinks as long as she's earnest she will succeed but her bosses have no integrity. She can't do anything without MC! She thinks if she destroys the contract everything will be safe. But would they really let her off so easily?

The Li Jie obviously holds enmity towards MC. She sees this and still accepts the invitation and signs the contract because they promised a movie role.

The Hong family warns MC about Gu family methods, MC ignores the Problem but the next chapter the Gu family drugs Heroine and MC goes insane. Heroine even knew the Gu family is nothing good and still accepts a new invitation for another movie.

She founded out MC is part of the Martial Circle and she still acted oblivious when she heard the Hong family call him "Master". She or Zhou Fei didn't even say anything when MC murdered. The company didn't even defend her and she still ended up with them!

[collapse]
It really makes me want to flip the table due to her being so stupid...

At times these characters act reasonable but at times out of character. Which is quite vexing to read..
Spoiler

Lian who fell in love with MC was liked by Zhou Feng, it was a good idea however she becomes like a B*tch after awhile because she keeps rejecting him. There is a need to have a order of things. Then suddenly Zhan Li falls in love with him. WTF? That was really forced. The MC even saw the 'Insect' who tried to rape his sister as trivial. And if it Zhou Feng doesn't work out with Zhan li, she would probably end up with Long Ge who tried to save her. Which is stupid. Why does the Author feel the need to add more 'Love Interest' in the story? Even the Daughter has one! And Li Ann who was doing good at first somehow fell in love with MC.

[collapse]

Conclusion: I dropped this because I could no longer stand this foolishness any longer BUT this could definitely be a top grade novel and could had easily surpassed Trial Marriage Husband: Needs to Work Hard however it's to inferior in terms of plot. This is simply just too messy of a story sadly =/.

Is it worth reading? If you asked me the first 300 chapters, 'Hell Yeah!' I could bare with it. But now I can't really say. It might be worth translating depending on how the Cultivation goes. I really want to rate this 4 stars but too many things are forced! Nothing really happens in the 400 chapters I've read and no development what'soever. I'm not too optimistic and the story gets boring with endless repetition. Just nothing exciting. If the Author took it step by step and more polished.. This would certainly be amazing. I LOVE THE DAUGHTER SHE'S TO CUTE <<less

I enjoyed read this novel so I will write some pros and cons in my opnion.

Pros:

  • It is a warm story about a fauther and daughter (and later the wife), and it is really interesting see how the MC start to change as the story goes and the relationship with his family
  • There are susprisingly some good side characteres, in particular the MC disciple
  • Until now no stupid chinese patriotism (excluding the name change, that was bizarre and made no sense)
Cons

  • It's really annoyng how the MC behaves, even if make sense due his past
  • The author clearly knows nothing about parenting
  • All this "everyone have to workship the MC, he knows everthing and can solve any problem

It's kinda like RFTIW but is softer and gentler. A return-from-another-world story where the MC restarts his cultivation and straightens his past mistakes. It's very heartwarming I guess, pretty much the type of novel I'm looking for after reading a lot of never ending full-of-killings kind of novels.

The translations are slow and I hope it'll pace up, I like the story very much even though it has very few chapters right now.

I don't like the ML's personality. He is too arrogant and selfish. I hate how he treats the FL in the beginning despite her giving birth to his daughter. His attempt to bring out his daughter out to play without the FL's permission shows his awful personality.

The tl chapter is only until c19 but saw the comments that it worth reading on so decided to continue reading via Google translate. Been reading continuously since last Friday. The reason why it's a 4 stars is because I feel characters development a bit shallow. Some events is being forced in just to create a big dramatic scenes. It's just my opinion. It's could be misinterpreted due to using Google translate to read it.

So far it's a fun read. Don't expect too much tho, this novel is a fluffy novel about an immortal who spoils his daughter so much.

Whatever he does or happens in this novel might be unreal, but this is a webnovel, a fiction, what did you expect?

Please give it a try, you might wanna change the pace from common cultivation novels.

One of the best novel I've read so far and I just love it.

Don't be disappointed by low rattings or negate reviews, just read at least 50 chapters before you decide to continue or not.

This is a slice of life novel with mild action and good romance with a lot of cuteness and fluffy moments.

Zhang Han / Zhang Hanyang / Hanyang Immortal is a protagonist who came back from the world of cultivation and was a great Hanyang Immortal so arrogance is a obvious trait he has as people shouldn't... more>> complain about him being arrogant and his indifference about everything else other than his daughter, her mother and his relatives & friends. But he calms down because of his daughter and becomes casual and his character develops as he becomes much more understanding became of his love for Zi Yan.

Romance is pretty good in novel much better than typical Chinese novels. MC and FL becomes couples around chapter 300 and thier characters develops as the story goes.

Zhang Han is a dotting parent and loving husband thats what makes this novel so good and leaves you wanting for more. And Meng Meng is one of the cutest character in the novel you just help but love her. Every character other than MC and his family are well written. Story is good so far as it doesn't feel repetitive or forced. There are mamy face slapping moments and MC becomes ruthless the moment others mess wth his family.

Overall its a satisfying novel and highly recommended. If you can't wait for new releases then try mtl as its not as cancerous as other novel and its much readable. <<less

Commercially its 3 stars. It can't be sold like hot cakes because It's a not self insert MC and also not harem. Fights could be evaluated from okay to boring. MC isn't completely zero from the start so the MC relatively didn't suffer significantly in his initial rebirth stage. And MC didn't throw his Immortal Treasure Hoarding Monarch temperament even though he is a mortal now.

Generally could be rated as 3.5 to 4. It can't be lower because all readers appreciates character growth. MC's attitude is still the 500 year... more>> old Immortal Treasure Hoarding Monarch but he just keep on rebuilding it to suit a new life with his daughter. Repeating what the author said, he will change mostly his (godly?) morals teaching to his daughter because of the mother. The process of his change for his daughter's good is very adorable and decisive.
Frustrating drama doesn't drag too much but not too quick too. <<less

I remember there being another novel with similar idea, so I gave this a try, this is just 4 chaps in so might give this a try later, but this doesn't appear to be nearly as good as the other one. TL quality is good here though.

Below some spoilerish things that turned me off this novel.

... more>>
Spoiler

First of all, "the name your mother gave you is no good because it's not chinese"... What kind of parent is like this???

Secondly, the plot here seems to be "MC came back from immortal world to time before he died" it doesn't appear that his previous body survived this tribulation, but he still expects his items to be on his person, and even pulls out a random treasure, all while emphasizing how his cultivation is lost and he has returned on earth. This makes no sense at all, did his body return or did his soul return, why does he have his ear treasure but not his ring if his body returned, where is his cultivation?

While we are at that, the world he returns to seems to be completely different world than the one he originally left/died in, which atleast with this little amount of chapters seems to be purely unexplained plot convenience.

[collapse]

Basically it feels like the author first had an idea, and he then went and added more things later, feeling like there already wasn't enough and that some things he wanted to use weren't explained earlier.

I'm also guessing there is going to be A LOT of "china number oneeee!!!!" things here judging from ch 3-4.

Decent read though regardless of all the faults I guess, atleast compared to many other chinese novels here. <<less

After reading ahead, the only reason I can conclude as to why this should be read is because of the daughter. The main heroine is as annoying as they come and is constantly making ANY situation worse. The villains are all the generic second-rate arrogant trash; the MC is the same. He does not fail in starting something just to save face, because he was annoyed, someone said something to his daughter, or just straight up questioned his awesomeness. Obviously, there are times where it was justified but, for someone... more>> as "awesome" as his immortal self, he is very thin skinned. <<less

The good:

This story is super cute and makes you want to keep reading. The MC is a great dad and the daughter is super cute.

The bad:

... more>> There is a lot of pointless filler about food in this novel. I dont understand why I have to read a full chapter describing a dumpling.

The MC is super underpowered. There are a lot of people stronger than him on earth. He was able to destroy planets with the wave of his hand in his last life and now he can only destroy a tree. His cultivation is way to slow. He should already understand the laws and have overpowered skills. I cant understand why he can only level up with treasures.
