The MC has many girls hence the tag polygamy. However, he acts very tactfully and is willing to do things using underhanded methods. Therefore he's unique. The story itself can be a little dull with so many explanations being used and it just goes in and out the ear. The plot drags you on. The character has no backbone. He has no reason to fight except when he has to. That is stupid.

So i've been reading this novel for a long time now. And honestly all the 5 star ratings are unrealistic or just plain wrong (imo).

TL:DR - typical poorly written chinese xianxia, that makes the same mistakes as 98% of them do: information dumping/regurgitating, stupid and unnecessary plot armour because of lack of writing skills, badly written fight scenes with no unexpected twists, hyping characters powerlevels on the fly, just to force story progression and justify bad writing. The only good about the story is the teachers, and the very little proper comedy and the cultivating system is a little different than others.

I would strongly recommend to those of you who've gotten sick of the same poorly written chinese novels (like I have) to check some of the stories on royalroadL instead. Some of the novels there, are at the same level as a professionally written book or best seller you would buy for money.

... more>> the good: I like the world building, the cultivation system and the mc's teacher (s) are pretty cool, and a very small part of the comedy is decent.

the bad: brace yourselves there's a lot of bad so hold on tight.

The MC is a boring character, nothing new or original about him, and he get's everything handed to him by poorly written plot armour, and unrealistic character interactions/reactions. The harem tag feels like the authors own wish forfillment, and is incredibly unrealistic and not even well thought out (harem can be good if done well, this is not done well). The story would've been atleast 3 times better without it.

The author can literally spend more than half a chapter repeating and regurgitating information you've read atleast 60 times earlier in the story and it's like he feels the need to explain every single little detail he can think of in every damn chapter, almost as if i/you/we the readers are completely brain dead to logical thinking, or like we have a non-existant short term memory.

When there's supposed to be an EPIC hard to win battle, he feels the need to spend 40% of the chapter pushing the 'scenes' hype lvl upwards, just to make it even remotely interesting. And the rest is wasted on plot armour, unrealistic developments, and badly written character reactions. And also information dumping.

the latest 2-3 chapters are perfect examples of this. He's wasted atleast 3 (very short) chapters hyping a female 'love' candidate's power levels so absurdly high, that i've literally skipped 70% of the lasr 2-3 chapters. and the fight is still not over yet, or even close. All of it right after the MC has gotten a huge power boost, and defeated atleast 2 people who should by the author's own machinations, be much much stronger than the love interest.

To those of you who have read the latest 2-3 chapters, try to filter all the bs hype and unnessary filling, and see how few "...." there actually are, that has anything to do with the actual fight scene/action. I think maybe 5% of the writing is about: the how and the what, is happening in the fight. The rest is useless information, and powerlevel hyping just for the sake of progressing the story.

If you'd like an example of well written combat/fighting scenes, I would recommend reading some of the sci-fi story called Paladin or The Gam3 on royalroadL, eventhough it's a different story theme and set in a sci-fi universe. The actual fight scenes are intense, exciting, non-predictable and gives you a REAL picture of what is happening in the fight.

The only reason i've followed HJC for so long, is because of lack of proper wuxia/xian xia stories, because of the same stupid mistakes 98% of them make: Information dumping/regurgitating, unnecessary plot armours because of poor writing skills, boring 1-2 dimensional characters and poorly written pacing. <<less

This is one of my favorite novels around at the moment, I've read the entire thing and like more of Tang three's works the moment I started I was enjoying myself, the main character is shameless, funny and strong. I really think this author does polygamy fictions better than monogamous because in just about every one of his works I've read he introduces at least 2 or 3 possible love interests and just decides to kind of give them the cold shoulder the entire novel

Tang Jia San Shao does not disappoint. Unlike his previous works like Douluo Dalu, this novel is more comedic... where else can you find a novel where the mc’s penis is slapped only to have it slap the MC’s love interest right back? The MC is initially portrayed as a shameless scoundrel but shows a more mature attitude every so often. The MC has plenty of lucky breaks, but he takes risks to achieve them. Anyway, it’s a good read. I recommend it.

Honestly. Just read it. If you like a good plot actually good characters that aren't entirely one dimensional and predictable and all that other jazz just read it. Reading these reviews is basically pointless because it's either extremely biased towards the bad or the good. Read it and make your own judgement, That being said I personally recommend this book, I like it way more then MGA or ATG or any of them. TJSS is great.

Honestly, Nothing new here, just another in a long line of others. It could've been great but so many cringe-worthy and idiot and ridiculous elements.

I could go in full detail but I really don't want to waste any more of my time here.

I honestly can't remember when I did drop out of this obe, it was neither early nor late point tho.

There's a barrage of reviews praising this novel to the heavens.

I disagree.

... more>> It is true that it has an interesting "cultivation" system, and it's good that MC is not another transmigrated underdog.

But the tale is mediocre, the pace is hasty, and what spoiled me this the most is the dumb, illogical, filthy idea that the rape-victims (using the second word based on other reviews, during the point I've reached it was one girl of such setting) would just fall for the guy, because.

It was the joy-kill for me, and I won't read it regardless how bored I'll get with my current handfull of up-to-dates.

The only reason it's not 1 star is that the background world was truly interesting. <<less

Nothing new here, MC is a snarky, cocky and arrogant fellow who justify his screw ups as being "possessed or just young and innocent (lol yeah right). I stopped a few chapters in after the rape arc when he kept a "souvenir" to remember what hes done. The excuses he gives for doing what he does is pitiful.

This author always seem to make good introductions in whatever he writes, but they fall off to oblivion when it comes to everything else. His stories just doesn't hold my attention, and... more>> when it does I always facepalm at how stupid MC is. <<less

I don't know what you think about HJC. I don't know what you think about the related works SYWZ and DD.

But it gets better.

A lot better.

... more>> And it has much of the good parts of this author's other works without showing too much of the bad, thanks to the more heavy comedy/irony focus.

Furthermore, the various conflicts, while somewhat derivative/repetitive, actually changes over time. Which is nice. There is a bunch of "And then my boss's boss!" or "The faction above this level of faction!" going on, which is very stupid and plot-holey at times, but at the same time it's kind of acceptable the way he goes about it.

The worst thing about HJC (So far) is how everything seems to be "happily ever after" and tied up with a nice bow. There really isn't much organic villany.

But hey, we like marvel movies, no?

Basically, the most palatable Tang Jia San Shao novel. <<less

Among the many TJSS novels I've seen, this is my favourite. I find that TJSS spends way too much time on adolescent years and it hurts the reading experience.

HJC has many elements, there's the initial army arc, school arc, tournament arc, army arc again, and so on. But they never feel out of place and instead feel well planned. Motives of the MC are very clearly shown and the comedic elements make this a blast to read.

The translation quality is great, but I think the name should be Heavenly Pearl... more>> Transformation instead.

I could barely believe this is the same author who wrote Child of Light. <<less

I think its one of TJSS well balanced work as MC can be ruthless to his enemies while kind to his friends and he perverted in nature which makes some of best comic scene throughout the story. This has romance, action, comedy.

What more do you need from a story. So go give it a read.

One of the most stable works from this awesome author. This guy here, which acts foolishly almost all the time, was the base for his most iconic character from Douluo Dalu, Tang. While we can complain a lot because this character acts very foolish, we forget that the most impressive main characters from other novels are either reborn after they made a lot of mistakes and died, or they are old enough to understand how important is to make the right decision at the right time.

Read this novel, and... more>> later you will find out how he slowly matures. I only have, sadly, two complains addressed to this author, my first would be the pace which slows down quite a lot from the eight book, and the unbalance created by a character that was replaced with a more mature version of his instead of following a certain formula. Still, these are, in the end, acceptable flaws for any novel. We are readers in the end. I will give 5 stars towards this beautiful novel which is ranked between the 10 and 20 places in my top. <<less

I love this novel but I hate the inconsistency of the translation. Hopefully they can speed it up or at least make it regular. Otherwise, I don't understand why they don't let Qidian get this novel. Don't get me wrong, I'm not supporting anyone on this war betweens translators, but I want to read what I am into.

Another TJSS novel that is worth to take note of. As in the case of other TJSS’s works world-building is interesting enough to get a reader an enjoyable experience of immersion. One of the most appealing points of the novel is that of character building of MC: he is a very enjoyable eccentric (and shameless to the LLS’s Yue Yang level), but is very realistic 13-year old MC. Although, some of reviews mentioned him to be spoiled, and MGA’s Chu Feng-ish, but in my understanding he seems to get much... more>> better character development, both in variety of his traits as well as their gradual changes along the story.

Another point that is worth to mention that is toning down of overly powerful abilities and powers. Like the mention and evidence of that many factors aside from sheer level of cultivation do matter. Lastly, I would like to point out that despite having MC be “typical” self-centered xianxia character, at least at this point in the story it seems that development of his home country is of the important matter for him, unlike many other egoistic OP MCs out there.

Add in substantial amount of humor, as well as solid, but not over the board romance and this novel is definitely a material that is worth of attention.

This novel deserves precisely a 3. And I say this as someone who enjoys a majority of this novel.

The only reason it's rated lower than it could be is because of 2 things, (1) it's harem and (2) the power structure.

First, let's talk of the harem. From the start I could bear through it, being someone who doesn't particularly favor novels that include harem, but as time went, it just got worse for me. And the moment...

Spoiler

the MC took in the sister of his fiance,

[collapse]
I had enough. The way the characters tend to fall in love with each other is simply not realistic. The interactions female characters and male characters have are not realistic. It bodes the question of where the author get's his ideas on what relationships are truly like. While it's true some of the characters are young and it may just be physical attraction that edges them on, some of their actions are a complete violation to their character.

In addition, the MC's harem seems to be all from the main powerful sects; and the inheritors of those main powers are always female.

In the end, if you think about it, women are treated as a joke in the novel. So many of them have 'unbelievable' bodies (and I quote) and the ones that don't clearly are thrown to the arms of those that are not the MC. Either that, or are made as terrible enemies of our character.

Second, is the power structure. The MC get's stronger way too fast. He has so many powers compared to everyone else, and before his other powers are even developed, he gets more. It's like, cheat after cheat comes his way. Just how big of a plot armor can a character have? And besides the physical pain he goes through, the character doesn't suffer many obstacles. You might say, he has suffered a lot in the novel. But if you really think about it, his action are the actions of what anyone who had desire would do in his position when it comes to gaining strength. Even the loss of the country he comes from, it seems he has the option of 'saving them all'. And saving them all, I mean, saving all that matter to him.

The primary things that save this story are the comedy, not the harem related comedy, but the rogue mentality it shows; the underdog situations, and the action! There is lot's of action, but not so much that it makes you feel as it's only action, and bores you to death like some other novels.

Seeing as how it all balances out, I rate this a 3. <<less

The most charismatic and clever MC. Don't doubt his plain innocent face. Therein hides a tiger (of course) *with a perverted look on its face* and a dragon strength (again) *with a perverted look on its face* that will bare its fangs only when our Zhou Little Fatty deems you a threat to his little beloveds.

Amazing fight scenes, very descriptive with unique system of power and cultivation.

Can it be called rape if he himself isn't even conscious?

[collapse]

You've probably read the basic formula before, trash MC awakens ultimate potential through deus ex machina. If you've read ISSTH, ATG, TDG, ED etc and have a kind of guilty pleasure associated with them you'll probably like this one. I even think this one is done a lot better for a few reasons.

First of all I like the MCs personality, he isn't arrogant for one, which I like. He loves to tease & flirt, and the writing in that department is actually pretty decent. In my opinion the romance side of the story therefor works comparatively well. It also makes for some funny situations when it backfires.

The characters overall are better than usual, you can usually guess who is saying what even without being told who has spoken.

Another good point is the fact that the characters do grow, this is especially true for the MC which matures a lot throughout the story so far.

The power system is a bit hard to grasp in the beginning, perhaps mostly due to poor explanation, but once you get a bit in it becomes clear and isn't that hard to understand. <<less

This was a very good read, very different from loner MC who cultivate in silence and drinks pill in order to get stronger. This guy has some good to great EQ. Making him have great relationship with other people and make the harem seem believable. Although, the harem is the only major complaint I have as I'm not a fan of girls leaving him just because new girls need their time to shine.

What makes this novel quite good is the battle scenes. The author knows how to write fight scenes,... more>> not just the flashy super powered, light shows that most xianxia author does. There is motion, action, tactics, thinking, weight, that the author does so well.
The power progression too is not boring.

I wish the translation can be faster tho, as it's really a very enjoyable read. <<less

this series is deserve more than 4 star it currently has. Some update you see on your reading list you can ignore, because its better for that particular series to be read after accumulating more than 5 chapter. But this series is something you can enjoy for every part of it.

The MC is shameless to the roof top. That's what make this series so unique and funny >.<

I gave this series a try as its author is well known and the series is fairly popular as well.

I confess that I haven't read all the translated chapters. I dropped the series few chapters after the rape scene. (Not a spoiler as this happens fairly early in the series). So new readers shouldn't really care for my review as I dropped it early. For this reason I won't rate the series as well.

Now I'm sure the fans of this series would defend the rape scene by saying that... more>> the MC was under the control of dark energy, and that the girl understood it so she kind of forgived him... Well, nope. My criticism isn't about the fact that MC raped a girl.

My criticism is about the dumb habit of chinese authors who use "rape" to establish a relationship between the main characters. When Chinese authors can't think of interesting way to make the main characters fall in love or establish a relationship between them they use "rape" to forcefully create a relationship. The girl would find that MC was her first so she would starting to fall in love with him... I just don't understand how could rape give rise to a potential romantic link? <<less

FANTASTIC!!!

Based on some reviews I almost skipped this. Let me clarify a few negative points

... more>>
Spoiler

To the rape: Bing’er the female lead, aware that he was awakening his jewel, let her guard down and knew it was possible that in some cases the person who awakens needs a sacrifice to bring their jewel out. She let her guard down and rushed into his tent during his awakening. He was already out of his mind, controlled by the black gem. He grabbed her and her mind too went blank. They were surrounded by a cocoon and both went at it, mutual s*x. However when it was over and she became aware of what happened she broke down, as she did not want it to happen but it did. The MC too, became aware of it after and swore to make it up to her no matter how and has devoted himself to win her over. The love story is awesome. Watch as they progress step by step. Very well done.

Is the MC a pervert. YES!!! But in a good way. Kinda like Saito from Familiar of Zero. He does not sleep around. His harem is growing unbeknownst to him. He is not shy to express his feelings or lust. Bu does not go all the way with them for he does not want to betray Bing’er. He is more afraid of losing her than death itself. Hell even his teachers father offered her as a concubine to him to join his sect and he refused!

[collapse]
The joke are good, the fights decent and the story flows smoothly. Do not let the negative reviews stop you from reading this.... it is GOOOOOOOOD!!! Action romance fantasy comedy..... what more do you want? 5/5 <<less
