'Typical' xianxia? Nope, this is a bad and boring xianxia. I got AIDS, hemorrhoids, diabetes, and even breast cancer while trying to kill time with this LN. I hate to hate, but this LN is one of the worst [if not THE worst] I have read.

Here are the reasons:
There's no 'cool' action/adventures, there's no interesting lvl-up progression, there's no romance, there's no human interaction of any kind, there are no feels, there's no comedy, there's no world building, there are no 'isekai' tropes, there's no common sense, there's... more>> no consistency and many more! Here's what it does have: mindless/bots characters, super godlike luck, plot armor over 9k; the world revolves around the MC, and everything is a smooth sailing ["Dora the explorer" shows more danger/drama and adventures than this novel]. <<less

I think there is a reason that this novel hasn't made the jump from the wuxiaworld forums to the main page even after over 100 chapters have been translated, and it has nothing to do with the translation quality. [edit - apparently the jump from the forums to the website has now happened, so this line is now incorrect.

I still feel the same way about the relative quality of the original work, but wanted to add this correction in]

This novel suffers from the worst of the xianxia tropes on... more>> every side of the story. Paper-thin petty antagonists populate the world. The world itself breaks any common sense rules that you may have just to push the bad story along. The main character (MC) is hardly any better, and is as shallow as his opponents. Lucky chances continuously fall from the sky with no foreshadowing or active seeking on the part of the MC.

Perhaps our views on what is reasonable don't match? Allow me to lay it out... spoilers on the first 30 chapters or so to follow:

First, the setting.

Spoiler

We're somehow to believe that this family hasn't torn itself apart already? Training for a kid with better than average potential: none. Aside from teaching the MC base forms, the parents leave him to his own devices. Then, at the family competition, there is this stupid rule of "nobody is able to interfere"... even when there is an obvious victor, who is in the process of causing their opponent permanent harm? This rule is there to make it seem unfair that the MC wasn't able to completely cripple their opponent with everyone watching, but all I could think about when this was being discussed was "this entire family is obviously too stupid to live."

[collapse]

Then, the antagonists.

Spoiler

The only believable antagonist for the beginning arc is the MC's cousin, because he is only an age seven or eight bully. Him, I can believe. His father and the grandfather are the typical one-dimensional "give unfair advantages to an opponent" petty antagonists. Sure, some favoritism is believable, but the author takes it to ludicrous extremes. Allow the bully kid to boast that he'll cripple other children? A-Ok, and let's give him a chance to act on it. After a year has passed and the first failure has festered into enough antagonism that in their perception, the bully kid is likely to try it? Sure thing, we don't mind that either... actually we lost face last year, so that would be great!

Are all of these guys children? There is no effort by the author to pull these characters out of this cookie-cutter "xianxia family villain" portrayal.

[collapse]

The MC is also a mix of all the annoying xianxia MC tropes as well:

Spoiler

MC decides to hide their potential from everyone? Why? Not really explained. Oh, sure, there is a throwaway line buried a few chapters in where it is said that showing his talent would be a calamity in some way... but that's it. It's not like the MC found an item that would be able to be taken from them. How would it be a such a detriment? This logic isn't followed up on, it's just assumed that the reader will agree that since it is a xianxia novel, the MC has to conceal his ability.

And it's not like the MC ever even thought about telling anyone. How much effort would it be to have had the MC actually take a chapter to actually think about the pros and cons of a few different options? If they had decided to keep quiet after considering the options of being open to the overall family, or of being open to just his father and mother, maybe it would have been acceptable. But either the author didn't think about it, or couldn't make any real plausible reason for him to keep quiet, so it gets glossed over.

Add in the MC's inability to ever take a step back and the inability and think about the consequences of his actions, and you have the perfect trifecta of stupid MC xianxia tropes.

[collapse]

Finally, luck:

Spoiler

Now all MCs will have a certain amount of this, but a good author will either space out lucky finds so that it doesn't break immersion, or have the MC actively seek dangerous situations to find the prize at the end, or (for abilities) bring it up much earlier than the ability gets used so that it doesn't seem out of place. Now let's review this novel. Again, this is all within the first 30 chapters:

MC is a reincarnator.

MC gets a super rare martial spirit that gets misidentified.

MC was a super awesome martial artist in their prior life, and their training of their old style has great benefits for their new style.

MC meets a smart spirit monkey companion.

MC is brought to some awesome rare fruits by said monkey.

After eating fruits, MC cleans off in a lake. The lake has a hidden cultivator's cave!

In the cave is a super rare martial technique and magic swords and a super rare dimensional storage ring!

Later, the MC runs into another person with the same technique and helps him since he is really injured. He happens to be super strong.

We find out that the MC also has some technique to heal broken meridians (from his prior life I think?).

MC's lucky find in the cave means he is actually the true successor of another kingdom/family of some far away land!

[collapse]

So do I feel this story is completely worthless? Despite all this, I wouldn't say that. I view this like the bad free appetizer that gets put on the table at some restaurants. If you are really hungry and have nothing to read and need something to kill your time until the main meal of actually good stories? This is good enough for that, at least. Despite my qualms about the story itself, the translation work itself isn't bad.

Just don't go into this novel expecting it to be anything more than Generic Xianxia Story #176. <<less

Hi, just registered to help comment on this awesome novel. Please try not to believe what others said about this novel. It may be the same with other xianxia novels, but it has its own strengths. I won't spoil it, but others' talk about MC's parents is not true and he doesn't sacrifice his family members, unlike other novels where familial bonds are only served in the beginning of the story and do not provide any developments to his family members. I'm still looking for the similar novel which also... more>> focuses on the familial bonds like this novel (if any of you knows about this, please by all means tell me. Thanks in advance)

Anyway, it may take a long time to enjoy this novel, but please do not mislead others. Everyone is welcome to criticize it based on your preference, but please avoid giving misleading information. Anyway, no offense to others. Let's enjoy this :D <<less

*Small edit* Caught up to c345 and still loving this. It's been getting more and more interesting to me, especially the MCs abilities and growth. Unlike most of these MCs that stick to sort of one cultivation path and their weapon being just a sword, fists, spear or stuff like that, he's more versatile and his moves vary, which is nice. Story has gotten a lot more interesting as his strength has grown, as is the usual case for 1k+ chapter Xianxia/Xuanhuan.

Also, if you're looking for romance, this is a... more>> VERY slight spoiler, but I'm pretty sure there are just going to be like 2 love interests or something. I prefer some semblance of romance in the stuff I read and usually no full blown harem where the MC has every female instantly fall for him, so this is also a good read if you want something like that.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll add this to the top so people can understand my reasoning for the 5. I've read tons of Xianxia and Xuanhuan novels. If you're like me as well, you know that they're all VERY similar in many aspects. When you come into these novels, you shouldn't really expect something incredibly fleshed out and innovative. Emperor's Domination is incredible, as is HSSB, as is Coiling Dragon and most IET novels, but they ALL follow similar patterns and you can predict how things will turn out to a certain extent. Situations repeat themselves in different ways very often, and that's not necessarily a bad thing in these novels.

Most of these have a thousand to several thousand chapters, so it's not going to be very original. What truly matters, is enjoyment. This novel is very enjoyable, which is why I gave it a 5. As far as I'm concerned, Invincible is AT LEAST better than a lot of others, at least at this point in time (c198). So, remember... Enjoyment is what truly matters. Try something out first. Look at the tags, not the reviews and ratings. You might hate a 5* novel and love a 3* one, and vice versa. Now, my actual "review" is below.

**Edit at c163** Still really good and has been holding my interest. There's A LOT of timeskips in this novel. Although MCs cultivation is incredibly fast compared to others, it still takes a VERY long time to move to the next order in the current realm. An example (Coiling Dragon spoiler)
Spoiler

When Linley or others get to the higher planes, cultivation takes hundreds/ thousands of years for improvements. Even early on in Invincile, that slow rate of improvement seems like it's gonna be the norm.

[collapse]
Anyway, other than the insanely slow cultivation (overall), which warrants tons of timeskips, the story has still been fun.

The MC is like Yan Zhaoge from HSSB, in that even though he's lower level, he has insanely strong loyal subordinates. There have been the typical villains and arrogant fools, but it's been handled very well so far. Although HSSB is probably the best Xuanhuan currently being translated (imo), Invincible is far above a lot of the other ones atm. The raws have 2400+ chapters so I don't know how it'll hold up, but if you're like me and love reading all these Xuanhuan/Xianxia novels, definitely check this out as it's honestly at the higher end of this genre (so far).

**Edit** Caught up to the current chapters (103) and I'm still thoroughly enjoying this. Review still holds... for now.

Incredibly good as of Ch. 48

The MC is super young right now, but the fact he was reincarnated helps a lot since he's not a kid, mentally. His personality and character is great so far, even if we haven't seen enough to totally determine things. Definitely confident yet not arrogant. I'd say currently 50% ruthless since it seems like he can hold back from executing people instantly without thinking about consequences, which is nice. Not too soft or too hard. I like how he's willing to learn things, especially from his "people". Might not seem like a huge deal to most, but this MC has been one of the best I've seen. Honestly reminds me of Forgotten Conqueror a bit.

Story has been nice so far. Pace and cultivation is pretty quick atm, but that doesn't hinder the story at all. If anything, it makes it better, especially when it's been foreshadowed how damn massive the world is. The first dozen or so chapters might seems a bit annoying because the MC is so secretive, but it's honestly not as bad as people make it seem.

One HUGE thing that's refreshing is that people with cultivation realms above the MC haven't really appeared. It's not like the MC against the world where he offends huge f**king powers non stop, where everyone has the power to squash him like an ant. Where all these people have the power of Mt. Tai and everyone else doesn't know the difference between heaven and earth. It's a BIG deal since that hasn't happened... And it's fantastic.

There's a bit of romance, I guess? She's pretty likeable but they're just kids atm, and the MC is mentally an adult... Like I said, a bit like Forgotten Conqueror if you've read it.

As for the HIDDEN ABILITIES aspect, which I assume a lot of people would worry about, like me, it's not that bad and I feel like it isn't detrimental or irritating. He doesn't reveal all of his power, but enough... Trust me, it's good. Like I said before, the first dozen or so chapters are the most annoying, but I think it fits. Still, don't skip some of the important introductory info in those chapters. As for if he hides things non stop, it's a bit like Emperor's Domination. He uses his full capability on people he's gonna kill. He'll also reveal things about himself to his "people". There's an incredibly satisfying moment when he reveals something important to two of his "people"... Especially satisfying since most writer's chose NOT to reveal something and then I start raging really damn hard because of it.

I'm not a good reviewer, but yeah... This novel is really damn good so far. It's been incredibly promising and I look forward to the day when Wuxiaworld accepts this series as an official translation. <<less

Just sloshes back and forth between contrived fights and sudden cultivation bursts. Kind of incoherent and lacks the sense of adventure. Pretty much works like:

1) Level up in stunningly short period of time

2) Kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

3) Level up in stunningly short period of time

4) Go on a trip, kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

5) Level up in stunningly short period of time

6) Go back home, kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

and so on...

So far it's just another standard xianxia trope filled story. Including the ever-so-annoying "must hide abilities at all costs". Actually, amend that to "must hide abilities at all cost, even passing up on benefits to cultivation, and getting angry over humiliation received from being viewed as weak".

MC would rather see his parents be humiliated rather than show even half his power. Plus he won't even let his parents know anything close to his actual progress. Just let them swallow the scorn from the rest of the family.

Gave it 3.0 since... more>> it's not terrible, it just has terrible things in it. <<less

Giving this a 1/5. No idea how this novel ever got more than a 3/5 from other reviews.

For me, it's incredibly generic. The typical Reincarnation + MC luck + the same old internal family / clan issue.

While I was reading it, the first novel that popped up in my mind was PMG, and well, I think that most people know how bad that novel turned out to be. Why PMG though? Well, it's pretty much because of the family issues as well as the whole spirit thing. The grandfather's reaction... more>> is even almost exactly the same as the Elder in PMG. This novel is worse though because the MC's father is absolutely useless. At least the MC's father actually tried his best to defend his son as much as possible and really believe in him. In this novel, the MC's father is utterly useless. As for the Martial Spirits, I think that's pretty much self-explanatory. Even after the family issues are resolved, the issues that the MC faces are pretty much the same. Arrogant geniuses who just keep stepping up after watching a genius get beat down. I guess that really isn't anything knew when it comes to any type of web novel though. I guess one positive thing to note is that this novel's MC isn't as chatty as PMG's.

One thing which I found incredibly stupid though is that... (this will contain spoilers)

Spoiler

when the MC finally left to venture, he just left his family alone surrounded by relatives who obviously didn't like them and who he had personally created vendettas with. Since I was going to drop the novel anyway, I just checked for the chapter where he returns to his family. When I skimmed through that chapter I wasn't even surprised that the "strong" big brother of the antagonist arrived and beat up the MC's father shortly before the MC himself arrived. That was coincidentally the last chapter currently translated so I don't know how he'll beat up that particular family (and honestly, I'm not even interested in finding out what actually happens when more chapters come out) but that last chapter added another thing which I absolutely dislike to this novel. The whole "hero arrives just in time" concept which happens time and time again in web novels despite the MC not even bothering to secure the safety of his "loved ones". It find it annoying because I'd rather have someone who "means a lot" to the MC die than to have a MC who never actually develops because he always gets away with his selfishness / carelessness.

[collapse]

As for the author, I think that his writing skills is lower than PMG's. Why? Because everything simply felt like they were words on paperwhite. The things being described to happen simply happened and I never felt really anything. In addition to that, everything just seemed to have a tone of childishness.

Anyway, with those things said, I'm dropping this completely and never looking back. As for the people who I think would be interested in reading this novel, it'll probably be those who are still reading PMG and the likes. <<less

Spoiler

Mortal realm arc was fine. Then the MC power-ups. Then he can kill anyone half a realm over his. And from there on, it all goes downhill. MC has power-ups that can't be explained.

Spoiler

In raws, he got 3 saint souls two realms before anyone could ever condense theirs, and same thing for his immortal heart, condensed two realms prior to the norm.

[collapse]

There is more points that make the story even less believable and make it seem like the dream of an 8th grader but oh well...

Update as of chapter 2931: the MC lost the last bit of his brain since the start of the "Huang Shuai" arc. Wherever he goes he says "become my servant or die", or just kills everyone. That happens in loops. No character development, no introspection, no thoughts.

Doesn't he ever think of his relatives? Not even one mention of them even though he left everyone that was close to him hundreds of years ago. Guess the author was "lazy".

At this moment I am utterly speechless at how low this novel is able to go down to. The current arc is probably the worst I ever read, all xianxias/xuanhuans included. I would rather see the author draw a quick end to the story than let it drag on for hundreds of chapters without an end.

If I had to draw an analogy, I would say that this novel is like a classic mobile rpg game. Every day you get some resources (two chapters) to power up your character (Huang Xiaolong), and that's the end, there is no story, no explanation, no reason.

I would give it 0 stars if I could.

So, having come up to date with the novel (at the current released chapters 2359 as of now) and seeing no one else having made a review with this many chapters i'll do one and try to keep it as spoiler free as possible.
So this novel as many others have mentioned is quite typical, but what wins it for me is that atleast it keeps some of the fantasy which I believe is the charm that I like in CN (xianxia) novels. Also as you read it you see that it takes some aspects from other novels, or copies if you'd like - the start with all the martial spirits and such feels a bit like LLS. As you proceed it is a bit like MW/TMW not only because the MC is almost invincible and beats things above his level, but also the fantasy items like: all kinds of flames, magical treasures of all kinds, different thunders and things to collect and items of legend not to mention all the beasts and mythical creatues/legendary figures. Later on the novel starts to have an air of Emperors Domination with how the MC acts in his actions. All in all it is a typical xianxia but it does it well enough to be worth reading (and binge read)

About the MC, well as said above He is the Heavens Chosen MC, the backstory of him being reincarnated, is sadly just like the usual reincarnated mcs: it's mostly used for convenience. The scripture is just there to make him OP (Kinda like AST or Dominating Sword Immortal I guess?) and to make some of his actions easier. All that said he isn't a dry cracker with no humor and isn't dull with romance and he does grow as the story progresses. As I said with how it resembles ED is that he at one point rules.. Some places not gonna spoil too much here, but during the story he becomes the ruler of a lot of places so as he goes around the world and above, then obviously he won't take trash talking from some puny young master of X sect or anyone for that sake. This means during the story we will see a lot of people provoking him and him killing A LOT OF PEOPLE - seriously I think this guy easily can be in the top 5 of MC kill counts, this doesn't mean he is the bloodthirst type on the contrary he's pretty harmless as long as you don't provoke him so don't let it deter you from reading this novel. Honestly dont expect too much in the first 100-200 chapters from the MC as the author is still trying to set up how the MC acts.
As for the side characters and romance:

  • It is actually a harem as he has more than 1 love interest, most of the romance and the girls aren't too fleshed out (Shi Xiaofei best girl tho) and he has two main love interests so far with 3 others. The two mains aren't too 1 dimensional and Shi Xiaofei feels like a young wife throughout the story and another girl is also quite likeable.
  • His family is also important to him through the story and we meet them occasionally, so they aren't just thrown behind and that's it.
  • Sadly as it is for this type of story, it is hard to keep friends and followers consistent, as through the story the MC usually power spikes too much. That said he does meet plenty of friends and have masters which isn't too 1 dimensional and there is also a few mentionable/memorable characters we meet.

I guess i'll mention some of the things I found bad/annoying/a pity:

  • The Antagonists is not too memorable in my opinion. We're not dealing with the super big schemes and plots, and even if, then the MC is just brute forcing his MC power through most of it. Not to mention that they somehow tend to be soft hearted, in an otherwise pretty brutal cultivation world - while there is some deaths on the MCs sides it is never truly important characters which means a softer impact for us readers. But! The first major antagonist was decent I guess.
  • Finally no really.. Finally, maybe it was just because I read it on MTL, but the word FINALLY was used way too much in the start of the story. If, to you, the word FINALLY means using a fair bit of effort used to accomplish something, then it does not have the same meaning for the author. Cultivating to X step in no time that otherwise takes others a long time? FINALLY DONE with so much damn effort. Opening a magic treasure in two tries with hardly any time spent? FINALLY opened it wow FINALLY. Ok, I wont say too much more about it, but unless the translator spices it up, be ready for the lack of vocabulary in the start.
  • Too many young masters that keep blaring their status and provoking and retaliation. While it isn't always bad as it is like reading a young master/sect death sentence every time.
  • No real motivation for cultivation, after the start with wanting to protect his family.
  • MC cant walk outside without stepping in treasures, but this is also related with the cultivation type (and being able to move the story anywhere with how the MCs body is). Essentially this novel doesn't use the sense things / sense dao ETC type of cultivation but it's mostly just Absorb Energy/Qi to fill urself up to breakthrough.
  • Also! Grades! So many grades and levels and grades and levels and best and mid and low and so on, this novel seriously suffers from this, so brace yourselves for GRADING!
  • And last but not least the Author cheapens us with writing in full every time he cultivates, meaning it's not just "And Xiaolong cultivated for the evening" no it describes the whole process almost every time he cultivates. What does this mean? It means by the time I read 2359 chapters atleast 3-400 of them was describing him almost cultivating the same over and over. I feel like this is seriously bad from the author, I know he has to deliver his chapters but it is still largely disappointing - But hey atleast you can just scroll past it most of the time, but it still means there's actually only about 2000 chapters if not a bit less (at the time of this review obviously) when you remove the rehashing of the cultivation.

All in all, a really enjoyable MC thats confident and ruthless but still decent. With the typical xianxia setting, a few memorable characters that you'll enjoy. And while it has been mentioned in other reviews, he does actually face a few super powerhouses quite above his level later on, needing to use subordinates or treasures to face. Obviously the reason for this is to push him and give a reason for cultivating obviously as he realizes he's an ant most of the time, even if he's a super blessed MC. As for the reason he hides his things.. Well as you read further in you realize just how blessed he is and how good of a decision it is.
But do keep in mind that this novel as of now has 2k+ chapters and it does take the first hundreds of chapters to start to define itself.
Also a good novel to begin with if this is your first or second novel you are reading as it isn't too "Chinese".
I rate it 3.5, as it does come with its faults and I wont say its a gem like Duoluo Dalu etc and belongs to the OP MC list of novels.

I don't want to say something so cruel, but this novel made me wish I was reading MGA instead, because that novel is actually probably at least several times better than this one, at least MGA kept me reading for a good 1500 chapters before finally giving up in annoyance at the forced and repetitive plot, this kept me reading for 90 half-size chapters before I almost collapsed, vomited blood and died. That'll teach me to not trust reviews and giving it a try thinking that it might be better... more>> than the reviewers made it out to be.

I'm not going to say that he's too OP for my taste. I came here expecting him to be invincible, as the title suggests. Instead we get a MC that relies only on servants/bodyguards and does nothing himself, so I feel like he's rather underpowered instead. Not going to say it's cliché, because which xianxia/xuanhuan isn't cliché as f*ck? Yet we still read them. I expected his luck, no issues for me there. I came here expecting faceslapping all the time and I don't feel like he's too cruel at all, which some people clearly do. I was also prepared to suspend disbelief at the plot being retarded and not take things seriously.

However, as we got on with the novel, I started to notice that it was getting worse and worse, that I was gradually unable to suspend my disbelief, unable to accept things and the way the author wrote the novel, because it was fundamentally retarded, all of it.

So, let's begin with the romance. There's nothing much of note there yet, but we all know who will be one of the harem members and maybe a permanent stay throughout the entire novel as she powers up with plot logic more forced than pushing a fat human through a cat door. She's currently 9, but since they first met 3 years ago, she has been clinging to him like a mentally disabled koala. She runs and hugs him, clings to him and forces him to accompany her every chance she gets and he, the mentally 27 year old MC, allows her to do so and can't say no despite clearly not being comfortable with it. I started skipping every scene with her, so it was reluctantly acceptable, but according to other comments, it will get much, much worse. His motivation to get stronger might even become the dreaded "I want to save/protect this girl" bullsh*t that I shiver at the thought of. She's just too clingy and obnoxious, I feel like vomiting when I see her.

Now then, the romance wasn't that bad although it was horrible, but the worst part in this novel is actually the MC and his family, by chapter 90, I was repulsed by and hated both the MC and all his family members. The mc's family members are all trash that get in the way all the time, they have no use whatsoever and is there only to show us how damn filial the MC is, how he's such a kind guy with his family first and foremost in his thoughts! He can't stop babbling about them every time he gets a treasure, every damn time he finds something nice, he instantly wants to bring it back to his family to gift a majority of it to them, despite it having great use to him. They, on the other hand, have no real use for cultivation resources and if he wants to help them, he could do so when such trashy resources aren't useful to him anymore, but nah, he's just gifting all of it to them, he wins pills and stuff from being first in competitions and just grants all of it to the family. Then he complains about his strength and how he wants to breakthrough faster, but he keeps on giving away all of the resources he gets his hand on like some supreme-grade moron. It's like he's someone experiencing a drought and he's almost dying from dehydration, but he keeps on sending liters upon liters of water to other people despite them living in a place without any drought, where they already have all the water they could ever need. It's the actions of a full-blown retard.

His family is also generally obnoxious even other than that. His mother is an emotional wreck that cries and screams 24/7 and can't wait to break down into a mess of tears and snot at everything she thinks might be dangerous. The MC is late to dinner? She'll cry. He's fighting someone? She'll cry. He's going out to gain experience? She'll cry. He's outside with a super bodyguard and essentially invulnerable? She'll cry in worry. God, just die. The father on the other hand isn't crying, but he's just generally useless and pathetic. He's a f*cking doormat to everyone and their dogs. He even forgives his brothers and father who mistreats them greatly and then he gets bloodthirsty and wants to get revenge for them when something happened. Well, he'll just ask his omnipotent son for that though. The sister and brother is f*cking useless and have no personality. What made me more sick is that, during the latest chapters around chapter 90, the family are way too included in the story and they're acting like some f*cking ideal family. Laughing, happy, sugar and flowers, the kids are running around giggling all the time, the MC is filled with warmth and happiness, I can pretty much see everyone skipping across the plains in utter glee and idiocy, like some excessively happy fairytale girl. I just hoped all of them would die so that we don't have to see them anymore and the MC can be more free. The author is really trying too hard to show us how filial and awesome he is according to chinese bullsh*t culture. I can't even believe that he'll be so attached to them, he came over at the age of 17, at that point you'll have already established your ego, personality, morals and everything, you won't be able to accept new people as your parents, it's just as simple as that, they'd be able to reluctantly be considered as an uncle and aunt, but real family such as parents? Nah.

Then there's the thing that he seems to actively seek trouble by dressing in rags. I'm also irritated that some mentally impaired person pops up every other chapter and screams at the MC like a f*cking monkey, as if he killed their whole family. This is even more retarded than what we usually find, none of them can think at all, they all jump the gun instantly for the slightest thing they find unpleasant. If we put them in real life scenarios, they would kill everyone in front of them at the restroom line because they don't want to wait and feel insulted because they have to. They'll shoot the waiters and chefs at restaurants because they didn't find the food to be delicious enough. They'll torture you to death because you said that you don't like the same tv game they do. They'll murder your entire family because you farted in their vicinity. They'll burn down your house because they didn't find it to be pleasant to look at. If your clothes aren't to their liking, they'll call you a commoner and cripple you. Geez, there's a limit to this garbage before you have enough.

Well, I'd have more to say about this, but I feel like it's not necessary. Suffice it to say that this is a novel no one should read, even people with bad taste shouldn't give this more than 3/5 stars. I'd give this a 1, 5/5, but since it doesn't deserve a 2, I'll just give it a 1. This isn't even good to make you fall asleep, as it's not only boring and tedious to read, it's extremely annoying so that you can't relax and will instead become pissed off. <<less

Don't read this. Seriously this is possibly the worst novel I've read. I know these stories typically have MC who has a lot of luck but this is simply ridiculous. Its one thing to get a powerful spirit and have talent like that but add in a godly inheritance way too good for the effort involved and acquired way too early and a pet beast that falls for the MC for no reason whatsoever and practically exists just to give the MC more treasures even though it would be better... more>> off keeping it for itself plus one dimensional cardboard cutout villains. I honestly don't see what the translator saw in this novel to bother translating it. <<less

This is one of the worst novels that I have ever seen. I cant imagine what is going through this authors head. How could anybody think this story was a good ideal. The MC is bland and unlikable. The villians are stupid and petty in a dumb way. Pointless power ups keep falling from the sky. The MC doesn't even need most of them. He becomes a rank 1 warrior after training for 1 day and reaches rank 2 on the 4th day.
Spoiler

The author relized his cultivation speed was to fast and needed to slow it down and get more word count. The MC trains for half a month and is still rank 2. He says it will take a month and a half just for him to reach the peak of rank 2. WTF IS THIS BS GOING ON! How did his speed slow down so much. Wont it take countess years just to reach rank 9 if it keeps going up like that? The MC meets a super rare monkey while training in his backyard. The monkey takes him to some treasure that helps him lvl up. The MC should have already leveled up by that time anyway and it made the treasure feel pointless. It was also surounded by countless bones and pure yin. The MC said it had been there for countless years. This treasure was a half hour jog away from his house! How did his clan never find it! They have been there for 40 years and have a ton of members! The whole thing was just to give the MC some treasure. It felt super random and cringeworthy. Stuff like this goes on forever!

When I started reading this novel it didn't take long before I encountered the usual Xianxia cliches. I expected it, so I was not really annoyed. At most I felt a little bored. Yet, things actually didn't stop there. The hidden talents come to light way faster that I expected, and if that was not enough, the fateful encounter happens only a few chapter after the protagonist realizes what is his true power and potential. Coincidentally he obtains powerful allies while his enemies are the usual proud, talented yet stupid... more>> characters that come a dime a dozen. The love interest is the usual annoying, clingy, extremely pure and angelic nine year old girl that will most likely attach to the protagonist as a parasite. The protagonist is a merciless cultivator that always finds new extremely rare resources, yet he always wants to share them with his less than talented parents to help them, even though he could do much better as long as he used these resources on himself to deal with the present problems before helping them. He is proud and righteous, yet the border between bringing justice and bullying slowly disappears. The cultivation speed which should have been extremely fast is intentionally slowed down by the author by suddenly giving his enemies a power jump. It's like playing a racing game where after reaching first place the other cars suddenly receive a boost in speed. Trash like this is repeated, the higher stages are already presented and most of the future conflicts can already be intuited to a large margin. Competitions between kingdoms, empires, sects, internal strife, gloats of proud enemies that will get water boarded by the protagonist, these sh*ts will repeat until the novel finally reaches its end.

In conclusion, read it, don't read it, do whatever you want. Yet, don't expect this novel to even try to get away from the usual cliches. As long as you don't have that much experience with Xianxia, you may enjoy it. <<less

I really like the novel at first, it was a bit different then your typical cultivation story since they have spirits. Sadly, the main character just gets a lucky break one after another, has plot armor, a predictable story line, and picks a fight constantly. Seriously, I'm not sure if he's ever not had a fight after a chapter or two.

At first, the fights were more or less justified, but it quickly went out of hand. Oh, you thought I was lower class? Here, let me smack you around, kill... more>> you, etc.

It's not interesting to read at all at this point!

He also receives a lucky encounter constantly and basically gives his parents, who don't contribute to the story at all, cultivation material after cultivation material, without using any for himself. No worries though, he'll disappear for a month and suddenly have something new and shiny the very next chapter. <<less

So far finished reading till chapter 16

Story line: Typical xianxia. MC Reincarnates and brings a secret art from the previous world [earth].

... more>>
Spoiler

When he was in the shaolin temple he had learned a secret art "Body Metamorphose Scripture" which helps in training battle qi (so far) in the present world of Martial Spirit World.

[collapse]

He is also introduced to this strength system of "Battle Qi" and "Martial Spirits". The Martial spirit reminds me of "Peerless martial god". Hope this LN doesn't have the same plot armour "You are trash" and MC reacting every single time to show he is Super Strong.

Spoiler

Yep, snakes turning into dragons. First it was a two headed snake then it splits to form 2 distinct dragons.

[collapse]

Character Building: Well, new characters are being introduced steadily. The MC's character has not been expounded so far. Other side characters behave in a very typical xianxia fashion.

Spoiler

Cousin tries to bully MC's sister. Gets beaten. Holds a grudge. Involves his father. The father is so stupid that instead of reprimanding his son, gets angry towards his nephew. Cousin fights with MC at the annual clan assembly. Love interest/fiance is also introduced.

[collapse]

Not sure whether harem will be there or not though

World Building: Too early to say anything. The author hasn't explained it well so far.

Translation: Descent. A couple of mistakes here and there, but its alright. The translation speed has picked up. Hope the LN is hosted in a proper site instead of forum though. :) Conclusion: Read if you are NOT looking from something new. Personally, it wasn't bad and I was not bored. I will give it a 4 out of 5 for now. <<less

Ok first off, I have read to the current raw with a great machine translation. That being said, its still a machine translation so not the greatest of qualities. Now I love this story even with all the complaints about overused tropes.

First off the whole reincarnation thing doesn't factor in much to the story, besides his Body Metamorphose Scripture and the very rare mentions of earth. It wasn't like he was a god like being in his last life or had knowledge of the future. He was a 17 year... more>> old kid from earth that ended up being reborn on a martial arts world. Knowledge on earth would only be useful if he was like on middle earth and building a gun would make one side extremely strong. Seriously if anyone of you were transported to the Martial Spirit world, what advantages could you really have from having lived on earth?

Second his family. Now this is kind of a spoiler.

Spoiler

Later on he kills this somewhat "important" guy from a sect that his cousin and uncle invited to basically kill him, his dad, and his mother. He takes his father and mother away to the kingdom's capital city; leaving his other family members to died when the sect came for revenge.

[collapse]

Third the hide potential, people the people of earth does this all the time because its logical. Does a company or government say to their rivals or enemies, look over here were are building/making something that will gives us a complete advantage over everyone else? No they would most likely have spies implanted and try to commit sabotage to prevent them from succeeding. So it makes sense that the MC hides his power, because his very small family cant protect him. Now if he was the favorite son of a powerful empire that had countless strong protectors, then I can understand him revealing his true talent.

Though there is one thing I dislike about this story. It feels like the author doesn't even know where is going. For instant for awhile we knew of a highest cultivation level by name; lets call it leader. However there were a few people that were over that level, later there were alot of people past leader level. So whenever these peoples' cultivation was mentioned it was said like this oh he is exceeded leader level. It made me feel like the author hadn't thought of what exactly where his cultivation should end. <<less

Great novel, really enjoyable. Translation quality is good too. I really like the fact that he has a super OP position, just that he can't fully utilise it. It might not deviate much from regular Xianxia but I highly recommend it. Also his latent talent is in fact, very high, he can actually rise to power without OP treasures like most MCs, the treasures just speed up his growth process.

I had good hopes for this one and it is a shame given the great work of the translator, but at this time it seems that we have another Peerless Martial God in the making : (

Peerless Martial God also has an excellent translator. I hope it isn't a trend...

At this chapter, all that is left of the good initial potential of the story is arrogance and mercilessness of the MC vs. stupid blindness of the antagonists. Well at least the MC is not self-righteous like the protagonist of PMG.

I... more>> know that, by my point of view, the story has being constantly descending in quality. And I don't intend to wait for a 1000 chapter until the story finally appeals to me. I don't know if I have the energy/time to discover the truth of the matter.

In the beginning, the story deserved at least a rating of 4, but now I will give it a 3. That is: before I regret it... <<less

The mention of Martial Spirits and a reincarnated MC that brings over a technique from his original world initially brought to mind Douluo Dalu 1, however this novel is nowhere near that gem.

There's little to no suspense - everything gets handed to the MC on a silver platter. Within just a few chapters, the MC's reached the 3rd level mountain peak of cultivation while the early antagonist is just at 1st level, received TWO cultivation treasures (all thanks to a monkey that comes mysteriously out of nowhere), received a super... more>> advanced cultivation technique (with related battle skills!), a treasure saber and space ring.

Zero attempts at world building, MC's interactions with other people are limited to
a. Hiding his higher cultivation level (which I think is BS because that's just asking for trouble. At the very least he could show that he has worth in his clan so that he doesn't need to deal with a lot of unnecessary sh*t)
b. Reassuring his parents that he won't get beat up because of his *lower* cultivation
c. Beating up the arrogant junior members of his family.

The author could have done a better job of giving his MC personality by showing how he interacts with his parents and siblings outside of cultivation concerns, but the opportunities are thrown away in favor of cultivation and getting new treasures, etc.

TLDR - Don't go into the novel if you're looking for a well-developed, living world with a fleshed out MC and an intriguing story. If you don't mind the usual xianxia tropes, near constant treasures and level ups, then there's quite a possibility for the advancement of the MC. It's possible to get hooked to see how his martial spirit will evolve and advance, what skills he'll get, and how the mysterious cultivation technique he received will improve.

the story is ridiculous and all the treasures in the entire world keeps appearing infront of the MC for no reason.

he is a reincarnator from earth and he has a set of cultivation techniques that has over 10000 stages. He uses it all the way from chapter 1 to chapter 9999 and it's basically better than every other skills the entire universe has created.

he is born with the strongest and never seen before martial spirits so ignore the synopsis because his spirit alone can flatten the entire universe.

the second he... more>> is old enough to walk, he walks to a lake and finds a cave with skills and weapons from another continent from a person who can destroy the entire continent he is at right now by flicking his finger. This also comes with strong bodyguards that can kill the king of the country he is in with a stare, and an entire sect too! This sect constantly sends him stronger bodyguards each time he moves to a stronger country too!

Spoiler

he later finds that this guy was captures and tortured for billions of years because of power struggles in the clan. No sh*t. You left all your weapons and stuff in the cave so durh

[collapse]

when he goes to another country for the first time, the bodyguard has a senior brother who is also the strongest man in the entire country!!

when he goes to school, his spirits dig up one of the strongest treasures in the entire world for him! WOW!

one of the good things in this novel is that his cultivation increases REALLY fast, but this also means that NOBODY will EVER matter because he will keep moving to stronger countries/realms. There is also 17 different cultivation realms so far in the raws (yes! 17!!!) and the raws are not even done!

200 chapters in, he also starts becoming cocky for no reason. He will taunt his enemies by telling them about ALL the treasures and skills he has, then kill these enemies who are 1 realm ABOVE him in ONE HIT. 2 lines later, he will remind himself that he can't let anyone know about the treasures he has.

also he cultivates by eating super rare pills that drop onto his lap that nobody else can find and his cultivation increases monthly. He also has an ability to create money out of air. I'm not lying.

don't read this.

Remember this line " is that so?" if you want to read because the second you start seeing this, you know the novel has went to sh*t. <<less

MC is insanely OP.

Yet still needs unnecessary plot armor of repetitively finding things doesn't need to ruin more of pace of already badly paced novel. Retarded power ups.

If wasn't enough he was more OP than anyone in story and sh*ts spirit medicine and skills he STILL needs to find possibly 1 of 3 people that are on same continent with possibly being size of entire earth land mass combined. Yet still does it. No less as a child no less than 10 years old.

Now you would think that would be... more>> enough of a handicap... No... MC still needs enemies to be dumb as a bag of bricks. And one time that author realizes that everyone in this world has IQ of 7 year old child he ups his game. Now everyone has IQ of innocent 12 year old. sh*t gets real and MC learns from nothing and instantly sees through this once in life time explosion of complex theory of battle! Because obviously just trying to lure him out. And noone saw it coming cause for last FOREVER of story noone has been smart enough to think of this ingenious idea. But instead of learning from mistakes or finding hints. He just magically knows.

All in all if I was ever in a novel I would want to be in this world. Because I wouldn't need to be OP, sh*t spirit medicine or high level skills, have someone randomly have an epiphany looking at air and decide they need to follow me or die trying to protect me. Just have to have IQ of an adult and you might not be strongest but most likely can do as well as anyone else while having a story that is so much better than this crap. <<less
