I couldn't read this as serious as I do others.

Spoiler

There's girls everywhere being introduced left and right that tells you the author is either proposing a possible female heroine or a harem that includes his own female-sword. Even his little pet fox is a female iirc.

No rival yet but already a bunch of love interests and forcible mysteries introduced.
mysterious first elder, mysterious family behind female merchant... typical.

[collapse]

The MC literally 'knows' how to do anything but requires time and effort to progress anywhere.
Only one chapter in and he's already picking a fight after crossing.
Spoiler

This includes all minor world professions, he knows how to do it all: alchemy, refining, etc. All from that bootleg set he bought on earth.
As always, everything he makes > everyone else.

[collapse]

Chapters are somewhat short making them a quick read but contains very little progress at one point and then zooming past to get off that idea.
Spoiler

Still fighting over the damned mountain after being introduced in the first ten chapters. In which has tooo many secrets and many people scheming for secrets after 3 decades of the clan having owned it... too much of a coincidence and used as a way to drive plot for the MC...
Don't expect much world building as I have seen minimal.

[collapse]
It gets really boring as majority of it is reading someone scheming or the MC flicking a middle finger to them in the process..

Cultivation/power System:
Typical martial-spirit based system, refer to PMG and others.
Only difference is that some techniques are suitable only towards certain martial spirits. [Means they are incompatible with others and can lead to death otherwise.]
These techniques are also broken into many grades as well - refer to King of Gods.
Spoiler

of which the MC learns a high ranking one that only his dragon-martial spirit can use, putting him above everyone already.
Not much explanations for cultivation levels but expect the author throwing terms and explanations in for things the MC finds or to drive word count when needed.

[collapse]
The whole thing is forgettable imho.

Yes, the MC progresses fast as long as he has the resources, already seeing the whole leapfrogging enemies and baffling those that died who saw him as a waste.

Overall it isn't as exciting as reading someone break through at a dire moment or crossing a tribulation. Everything is in the MC's favor, I expect plot armor in the future. <<less

Even though rating at 3 stars I enjoyed the read.

It does have good pacing, and some imaginative/descriptive scenes. If you want a light read, a story that you can chuckle at while your brain is set on stupid, dig in.

Where it fall short is continuity.
- Author blows past scenes without valid explanations

Spoiler

MC meets rival family in tomb with one exit. He gets what they want, and they are many many times stronger than him. Do they wait outside the exit to kill him? Do they search for him in the tomb? Author mentions it in passing, that MC walks out without them around... At least mention that the other family thought MC died due to a trap where he fell into a pit (Although smart antagonist would place guards at the entrance to capture them... and MC needs to stealth kill his way out)

[collapse]
- Plot armor for dummies
Spoiler

MC picks up this rare Lightning skill, practices it once, without girls knowledge and he is pro, then goes and fights with his bully brother, and can beat him with it after 6 days of practice vs many years of practice + higher realm cultivation.... Most Xianxia at least explain that the 2 martial skills are realms apart (Although not in this instance, they just differ in quality) Also, that MC has an amazing comprehension type ability that lets him learn things faster.

[collapse]
- Default Xianxia story line leads to some special moments...
Spoiler

MC is from another world, a shut in, and knows he is weak in this new world, then he challenges someone much stronger to a life and death battle???? Riiiight.... of course the story follows perfectly for him to show off his OP skills... MC should grow into accepting life/death through events in the story/and he should be smart enough not to be suicidal in challenging life/death duel without first figuring out how to increase his strength.

Well, the whole soul transfer in this story is poorly used. If it's not going to add anything to the story, just skip it.

its a good novel at first it looks promising that you wanna read it daily

but after chapter 60 it turn to the point I need to drop it since no point reading it since it is to predictable, then for some odd reason we have a long wasted chapter of battle of a minor character who came out of no where. Even the battle of a Very strong boss and some Mysterious Person was not that long but I was disappointed how a nobody from a certain something is wasting... more>> chapter just to make the battle OP when all reader or at least majority knows what that person ending will be. Such thing is beyond me, what I hated the most next to filler is reading wasted chapters just to beautify a minor enemy who is bound to die and has no important rule.

Another part is MC's relationship to his surrounding, I have no idea what the author is thinking why with the this and that to female if they are just forgotten later. What is this ignore character play? It is hard to judge if the character is a minor one or a supporting one or so on.

Even a certain Character that I thought would guide MC was just brought down so fast and I was like WTH!? what's the point of there meeting? all those chapter I just read went down to nothing? the characters was technically forgotten? Even the clan was one dimensional. Mysterious people at the background? B*tch please author just give them way to LITTLE line and here I read so many chapters for a minor enemy to hell with this novel!

It uniqueness disappear in my eyes, although this is just my bias opinion so do not take it to heart... <<less

Novel starts out OK, only because it sets up a xianxia/xuanhua fantasy setting, but gets boring extremely quick and the boredom content is god-tier. Percentage-wise, this novel is 90% splice-of-life, 5% action, and 5% adventure/mystery. You can go on for chapters with filler material the funny thing is that the author hasn't even gotten the readers attention before he/she goes full-filler chapters!

Maybe younger readers with a longer attention-span might find reading this novel OK but that's only because they haven't seen the good stuff yet.

Not sure how a person who suddenly find himself in a new world quickly immerse himself into killing and fighting others. Other good novels will follow pattern of the protagonist getting a clear idea of his surrounding before going wild. Murdering someone shouldn't be so easy especially when it's the first time killing someone. Convoluted plot jumping from declaring a life and death duel with half brother to cultivation breakthrough, from running into a dangerous area with no experience to killing someone with no enmity. This is already disgusting enough... more>> to drop after just 9 chapters. <<less

So far, pretty good for what it is. There are those tropes that we get to see in every other novel out there. So I won't mind or talk about it. There are not many chapters out there translated. So talking about plot is also useless. Character interaction is pretty good and developed. It has to be, after all he has only met only one character till now, his cousin. Potential harem member here. Action is pretty good, or should I say mediocre, if we have to put our standards... more>> higher. That leads us to MC's cultivation method, which is unique actually. Smokes and dragons gives you more effects. MC is also mediocore. Not naive, thinks a bit actually before doing anything, which is always a plus. I will see where it goes. I will not put my standards high, cuz looking at it. It will be like god of slaughter, PMG or something along these lines. Afterall, its from Zongheng. But yeah, seeing that it has been picked up by gravity, it has to be good afterall. 5 stars for now, its translation and its growth. <<less

Standard Wuxia/Xianxia/Xuanxia. So far, if you've read anything from Wuxia world, you see this story coming miles away. I don't know what sets this as different.

The title is Immortal/Martial Dual cultivation, but so far we've seen nothing to differentiate the MC's cultivation from anything else.

Spoiler

I mean, honestly?! His book he bought on earth (a world without cultivators as far as he knew) which tells him how to do alchemy and other crafts better than the greatest experts in their fields, and a cultivation technique which is of course more op than anything his clan has. He also has a 'martial spirit' of a blue dragon which is supposed to be super duper powerful and rare in his clan. He's doing too much op things yet I've dosed off reading the descriptions more times than I care to count.

[collapse]

Pretty much with most Xianxia's you want to give it to chapter 100, because by then the first 'welcome to the world' story arc is completed and the plot goes into a completely different direction.

Its not bad, outside of its might as well be the same as many other stories I flipped through and gave up on. Some of the girls were vaguely interesting in a sorta-cute way. <<less

I liked this novel for the plot, however I’ll only give it 3/5. Author introduced a lot of abilities and paths but ended up dropping them as story progressed. He has a semi harem but leaves all of them behind when he ascends. He chases after one, and the ending doesnt give closure for the romance. All in all; average read. Good time pass. (:

I'll preface this by saying I plan to let this novel sit for a while and then read in batches when I'm out of better novels.

This novel feels a bit disjointed throughout. I'm pretty sure the only reason cultivation realms exist is so that the MC can seem cooler for skipping them. The MC is also incredibly bipolar and forgetful. He'll be ready to kill someone for chapters and then when he gets the opportunity he'll just let them be. Or he'll act completely normal before murdering someone in the... more>> face and then be surprised when people get mad at him for it. I think this may actually be the most unassumingly arrogant MC in any novel I've read. He doesn't really look down on people with words like a lot of trashy MCs, he just plainly considers himself better and never really sees anyone as his equal even if they're more powerful than he is. But, hey, if a fight ever starts with one of them some kind of plot armor will pop out to protect him. And if he ever gets hurt, don't worry, it only happened so that he can come back better, faster and stronger.

So yeah, this is pretty trash. Why am I still reading it.... <<less

There's a lot of action in the novel and it's pretty entertaining. But the thing that puts me off is the MC is like a midget that constantly picks fights with Mike Tyson like characters. The napoleon complex in this novel is strong, for his dignity cannot be blemished! There will be plenty of wtf moments in the novel because of this.

Well, I blitzed through to chapter 125. And the first thing I can say is... the MC of this novel is an idiot. A bloodthirsty idiot, who has no common sense or even a shred of wit. As far as stupid MCs go, this guy certainly is up there.

Not to mention, quite a number of people MC encounteres also seem to lack brains as well. Must be something in the air over there....

What saves this novel from a total waste of my time, though, was its relatively fast pacing. Sure,... more>> there are moments where a scene does drag on, or the useless banter commonly seen in Chinese novels unnecessarily eats up page space, but they are mercifully short and far in-between. The main story does move at a brisk enough pace and that helped to sustain my interest in the novel.

I'll probably try to finish reading it, right up to the latest TLed chapters. But I've got this feeling that my overall impression of this novel won't change by much. <<less

So, what I will give this novel as a very solid kudos, would be its balancing. Our protagonist Xiao Chen aka Ye Chen aka Purple lightning demon aka Dense-as-f**k aka Closet Pervert, is op but not to the point of being untouchable.

He is not solely getting loot from the sky like other protags. He does get a lot of items but for the most part he has to earn them he isn't just getting an apple pie from nowhere all the time. People in his age group are outclassed not... more>> because he is spamming cheats, its more to do with there mindset. He was forced into a route of tempering his physical body for 15 years while everyone was training essence and leaving him in there dust. He catches up but isn't just blowing past them and going toe to toe with senior gen.

He isn't the only that dual cultivates either. Other characters have done it as well. This author does a great job of balancing out the fights. They aren't a one sided massacre, they are actually well written and methodically thought out. Similar to a manga/anime series, whose fight sequences I adore, HunterXHunter.

One bad side to it would be the realm jumping abilities. I think the author needs to amp it up a little more in the differences between each realm. If he is at the disciple level (level 2) and is going to toe-to-toe with grand masters (level 4) something isn't quite right. Maybe the author wants to establish a qualitative over quantitative perspective but the way he does it makes the cultivation levels seem like a joke. Only reason I am not singing a negative tune is because a lot of these realm jumping fights are situational and not his shoot from the hip ability. <<less
