Immortal Devil Transformation

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Sixty Years ago, one middle aged man brought a Qilin that looked like a pug and a mandarin duck that looked exactly like a duck, walking into the Imperial City of the Central Plains for the first time.

That year, this middle aged man crossed the Mountains and Seas Ridge, passed through the Four Seasons Plain and walked into Qingluan Academy.

Sixty Years later, Lin Xi sat on an old carriage, starting from Deerwood Village, he passed half the Yun Qin Empire and went straight north, going to Qingluan Academy…

This is a story involving the honor of an Empire, of loyalty and betrayal, involving youth and hot blood, involving a young man with a different perspective of the world, and a strong cultivating academy.

Saw that it was being translated, went to read the raws. Finished everything in a week.

One of the best Chinese novel I have ever read. It's no wonder it won multiple awards and broke records on the Chinese site. I really hope it is translated well because honestly speaking even if it isn't, the plot of the story is enough to "carry" any poor translation.

Pros:

    • There are no repetition of events. Which means for the duration of the whole novel, there is no eat this pill >cultivate here>auction house etc. No cookie cut template. This is actually a well planned out and coherent novel. It flows and reads like an actual story, no wish fulfillment from the author. In fact this is one of the best Isekai Chinese novels I have read.
    • Every character actually has character. The author has somehow managed to make me feel things for minor characters that appeared less than 3 times in the novel. In fact, there are times the author used multiple chapters of the story to focus on the story of the side characters and develop plot. Every character in the story played a part in moving it along.
    • One of the few novels with a well thought out ending. It is not watered down, everyone will be satisfied. Of all the Chinese novels out there, this is the best.
    • Relationships between the MC and the female characters are perfectly executed. It's one of those rare instances where the author actually understands human to human interaction.
      Spoiler

      Not Harem

      But it actually shows why it is not that way.
    • For a cultivation and Isekai novel, this has logic. The author explains almost everything, which is why there are close to no plotholes.
Cons:

I'll be honest, I can't find any con for this story. The only thing I can really think of if we really want to go out of the way to find wrongs in the novel. Is that sometimes the change in perspective is confusing.

a majestic balloon with huge kingdoms, mysterious grand sects and wise characters on the outside - hot air inside.

after more than half of all chapters I saw:

Spoiler
  • a few dozen faceless first year students, only a few have names/identities
  • two, yes, two 3rd year students (and they're supposed to study for 10 years)
  • a few alumni in the world outside
  • about 10 teachers
  • only 4 teachers ever appeared outside and most of the time they're incompetent
  • this giant academy that supposedly protects their students outside, kinda doesn't really do that except only twice and that only for one student
  • I'm not gonna describe political intrigues in detail because they're middle-school level
[collapse]

lack of imagination or lack of skill? Probably both

finally something new worth to read from WW.

so far its good, no fillers, no cultivating bullshits, no lots of fortune encounters, etc. Unlike most of chinese fantasy novels that love words count too much, this is a rare gem.

thx. 5/5 atm until proven otherwise.

I liked the pace, I liked the world-building. I really enjoyed it at first, besides a few issues with writing/translation. Sadly it then it devolved into a carricature of itself.

This is like Harry Potter if Harry Potter was boring. God it's so slow. The central storyline is flimsy, the plot progression is almost non existent and the conflicts are laughable. It started off so well but volume 2 just grinds to a half. I mean who the heck thought that 18 chapters about boring classes and no plot development was a good idea? I could have stomach it if the interaction between the characters was interesting but it's just not. The MC's rivals are douchebags, his friends are his... more>> friends and that's it. Nothing interesting, even the cultivation system is not explained in any details and we don't see MC making any major progress. It might get better later on but honestly I have no patient to wait that long and sit through all the slog. <<less

Literally just started, but it seems really good so far, the first bit post entrance to the first sect (100% not a spoiler) is hilarious.

Edit: Story is more interesting but it took almost 5 volumes to reach this state. I went up to 4 star,
============================================================

Story 3 / 5 - 3 Books in and still at the academy. It is like reading Chinese Harry Potter.

Main character Lin Xi - 3 / 5 - He is not detestable, but not very likeable either for me. He is slightly difficult to grasp an understanding of. But he is "ok" to follow and see where he will go.

Side characters 3 / 5 (they are incredible... more>> many) A lot of side characters. Many names to keep track off. You will spot many traditional Chinese characters as well; silk pants, arrogant young masters. But also side characters with different personalities (not all are copy pasted)

Translation 3 / 5 (.......) There are many sentences that throws me off.
It is an interesting novel, but this translation is irritating to read. So many weird structured sentences, so many weird placement of words, etc etc. The list goes on.

Wonderful book, nice world and character reading. For those weak to strong/grinding lovers like me, this is for you.

An absolutely worthwhile read

It is an intricate tale with a lot of world-building... too much world building, actually. A slow, plodding story with frequent infodumps that crush the momentum of an already exceptionally slow start, with a vast array of characters (many of whom are unimportant) that all seem to need their own introduction. At some point all the arrogant people blur into one congealed mess of s*upidity to me, and many only really exist to annoy the MC. Reminds me of when I went on a tour for a school assignment and... more>> the guide would stop us every few meters to explain something. Only this is a story and all the names, places and events mentioned mean absolutely nothing and I'm not being tested on it, so I don't care. I do appreciate the effort, but the delivery is about as boring as it gets. Still better than the dime-a-dozen cliche fests, even if my eyes are glazing over as I wonder if I even need to bother remembering anything just in case it appears later. <<less

if you looking for a good for relaxing read with a many good comedy, than don't... the comedy seem non-existencce only in vol.1 the rest of it til vol.5 I never again laugh or smile like an idiot (i smile sometime when it is about romance but for me comedy regarding love is different from daily life comedy), looks like if you want to enjoy this story your brain must in full throtle, if you not thingking deeply about what is writen than the only result this novel will look... more>> as a nuisance full nonsense too much world building, personality dechipering. <<less
