Too random and fast paced. The Author doesn't know if this is a comedy/parody or a standard action xuanhuan.

A guy transmigrates into a cultivation novel as a mob and it's trying to become the MC's master to protect his own ass. The beginning was funny and I loved it. He mocks the cliches while taking advantage of them to remove his death flags.

It would be an amazing novel it kept following this formula. A dumb but funny comedy about xuanhuan. Yet, the real MC suddenly turns into a General/God of... more>> War and kills a hundred thousand soldiers in a war. He's in the sect, suddenly assassins, suddenly again he has 30 thousands troops and boom, large scale war. It's a serious and gory war that doesn't has a drop of comedy and I got myself thinking I was reading another novel entirely. Then he comes back to the sect and there's a skit with a classical competition where there's a little comedy, but then, suddenly, AGAIN, beasts starts attacking the sect from nowhere and a serious saga where he pretends to be a transformed crow starts.

It's absolutely random, with no hook between these plot points, and this was only until chapter 25, so you can imagine how fast paced it is. Every power he has seems a little too convenient and smells like plot armor. He found a power to fake being a transformed beast right before this random attack began where he needed such a power to stop the attack and infiltrate the beasts. All attackers are exactly 1 level bellow or at his level of cultivation, etc. Okay for comedy, not okay for a serious plot. Wrap all this up with a System that gives him all the powers and missions he has, but nothing is said or explained of why this System exists in the first place, and now you know what this novel is all about.

If this was a pure comedy, it would be good. If it was a serious action novel without the absurdity and plot holes the comedy part brings, it might also have been good. But mixing both made things bad. It feels like eating ice cream with ketchup, or something like that.

Maybe if the comedy aspect was lighter and brought less absurdity, this could also be better, similar to Library of Heaven's Path. There's comedy there but it not to the point of absurdity or slapstick comedy.

Here the first disciple has a 'Falling from Cliffs' skill and the MC lets her fall from a cliff because characters always level up after falling from cliffs. That's funny in a dumb way, but if there's a serious plot where she uses the powers from falling from 100 cliffs in a dramatic and gory way, it becomes s*upid, not in a funny way. <<less

Better than what most people give it credit for.

I like the main character's personality as well, though he does change kind of from a scholar to some form of God of War as hawlol has stated rather quickly.

Though it doesn't seem as weird to me, strangely it fits all together.

Well, it's just my opinion, but, I feel like this novel is something I could probably read for several hundred chapters.

Main Character has what should be a crazy powerful physique were he can cultivate all techniques without any clashing between them then we have his first disicple with a powerful physique, however the author is clearly limiting the main characters strength gain comprared to her. The main character has broken through the 1/9 3rd stage with 88 techniques and has 2222 danger rating. His first disicple has cultivate to the 3/9 second stage with a single technique and has a danger rating of 1400. Also the main character has cultivated... more>> the same technique as his disciple to the same stage as her. The excuse is that the technique fits her her Physique better but the main character has literally 88 more dao seeds then her all of which are at a higher cultivation stage... Literally he raised his disicple cultivation from first stage 9/9 to second stage 3/9 usage a drop of false dragon blood which increased his disicple danger rating by 600+ points. In comparison him breaking through to the 3rd stage 1/9 in 88 techniques gave him an increase of only 472 points. Even worse is the the main character has already said his Second disicple if he enters the 3rd stage and the MC is in the third stage still he will surpass him on the power ranking board. This is ridiculous because his second disicple does not have any special physique or any sort of special connection with his cultivation method and the MC cultivates the same method along with 87 more. His second disicple isn't a heavenly talent in anything just extremely lucky but he never leaves the sect because the main character provides him with endless resources. The technique he cultivates is the hardest but the only reason he can cultivate it a a decent speed is the main character literally gives him a cheat sheet so he doesn't need to comprehend it himself. At this point it doesn't matter what the main character cultivates because the author has decided to have every technique give him a extremely low gain in power, in truth this seems like a method to prevent him from cultivating to fast forcing him due to his physique to cultivate 3000 techniques to transcend. It also starting to look like all of his techniques are incomplete. His disciples get also sorts of crazy abilities from cultivating these special methods but the main character for some reason doesn't. One might think it's because he is learning them from the system but that still doesn't make sense because what he learns form the system is what he teaches his disciples. At 252 chapters the author has given up on any sort of balance his first disicple has 4000 danger points at peak second stage and she still hasn't reached her peak. She literally skipping two major realms if your looking for a story with any good fights to expect to find it here all enemys are outclassed and easily dealt with. The main character is continuously getting less danger points from each technique cultivated even though his cultivation realm is higher. Each technique he cultivates give a small fraction of what it would give to someone else. Power gains are are joke for his first disicple as well just give her a drop of false divine beast blood and she gain 1/3 of all its strength. The MC and her a at the same stage of cultivation now her strength is slightly lower than his bust hasn't capped for her level. The problem with this his he has almost cultivated 300 techniques she has cultivated 1. Think of it like 300 dantians (In novel it's dao palace) full of energy compared to 1 at the same stage. It's kinda hard to understand why the author thought this made sense. <<less

Was good while it lasted. Though it was quite obvious the direction the novel was taking the moment he took in his first disciple, a female.

Dropped due to the love interest the disciple has in her master. Yandere level and potentially marrying uhhg

I can say that this is not a masterpiece, but not the copy paste woman-goes-wet-every-step-i-take, i-vow-to-be-the-strongest-under-the-heavens, i-will-curse-the-heavens-and-take-revenge MC (but I don't deny the MC have luck and overwhelming strength though, but not as "plot-armory" like other Chinese novels (come on man, you didn't need me to say which ones are those) and not too sudden of a plot armor (every novel HAVE plot-armor) (not like "Hey whats this key on the ground?", next chapter "Holy shit!, the world will be destroyed and luckily I just have the key that will... more>> save the world!"). Just take it as a pretty casual comedy where MC is in a cultivation world with a game system and is blessed by it, not too genius but lucky and also lucky enough not to make mistakes too <<less

Quite similar to and Library of Heaven's path, so if you liked those, chances are you will like this too. It is half humor (parody), half action/cultivation with the protagonist seeking disciples with MC aura and helping them improve results in him become stronger (with the help of his system). I enjoyed it up to c40 where I am at.

It started off pretty good until the part where he took in his first female disciple.


I don't mind master x disciple relations usually but this one felt so sudden. She turns really yandere, and theres no reason for her love or possessiveness. Just gave off bad vibes. Besides that, the novel also gets boring after awhile because its the same process over and over again.

I liked this. Probably in the top 5 cultivation/xuanhuan novels I've ever read (should be noted, I've probably only read 20 or so. I'm a wuxia fan). However, this is by no means a "good" novel. This is a parody, the pacing is absurdly fast, scenes jump around like a horny rabbit, and the plot armor is at god level (since it's a parody the armor is part of the gag). This is what History's Strongest Senior Brother was supposed to be before the author decided to discard the parody... more>> aspect of the story and turned it into a regular cultivation novel.


So the MC is a transmigrant who became a canon fodder in a cultivation world with a game system. He was "destined" to die within a few years, so to avoid it, he tried to rewrite the script and change his fodder status with the help of the system.

He is a future master of a sect, and pretty strong from the start. So he tried to game the system by identifying the possible main character of the story and taking them as his disciples. They are, of course, parodies of your standard xuanhuan/xianxia MCs. The first one is the beauty with rare body constitution. Then we have the super lucky MC with his own ancient soul super guide. The strong cultivator who went back in time and became weak/young again. And finally, a girl with multiple souls inside of her.

It's full of action, sometimes it's funny, most of the time it doesn't make any sense, but nonetheless fun. There's nothing new here, but hey, it's a parody, it's not supposed to be a groundbreaker.

It only has 146 chapters so far, so it probably has about 300 or so more chapters until it goes down hill and becomes another tr*sh / predictable novel that this novel so gleefully makes fun of. But for now, I give this a 4 stars

Regardless the plotholes and flaws the novel has.. It is the most emotion provoking novel I've read till now. The battles are intense, the schemes are cunning, the upgrades are OP, the mysteries are deep.

He really is the master of untold daos.

Read it and you'll be hooked. It is cliched but executed in a unique way.

Definitely a great novel for what it sets out to do. I've only read the first 75 chapters, but the story hasn't degraded yet, and hasn't lost sight of its goal: to be a parody (of a parody) novel. I'll edit my review if the story's quality shifts into a more humdrum and overdone route, otherwise it deserves its rating.

This LN is a spoof. You'll get the references if you are reading many Chinese LN. The story warrants laughter here and there.

The translation is great and easy to follow. We can read the story clear without trying to figure out. I think the translator have done great job at translating this.

Pros: Easily one of the most enjoyable stories. Give it a few chapters the author seemed to find his groove after the first big battle and then kept the quality coming every chapter after. 5/5

Cons: Editing is a bit messy, names will get repeated (like dude1 was talking to dude1 instead of dude1 was talking to dude2) and consistent spelling mistakes and incorrect words. POV shifts are also handled poorly and could use some sort of indicator, it's very jarring to be thrown from one side of the world to... more>> the other without anything but context clues a paragraph or two in. <<less

A beautiful comedy... you don't need to think about complicated stuff like why would things happen when they need to happen and stuff like that... you just need to enjoy the comedy.

This novel has its flaw, but it also delivers what it promises very well. It plays with the genres common schemes, it has cool characters and joyful moments and misunderstandings. What I dont like are the fast pace, the mediocre translation quality and the long battles. Nevertheless, because this novel fits my taste I will rate it 5*.

Not bad but not that good either. No real sense of true direction. MC never really cultivates its all the system. Random threats show up. Comedy is meh, very genre trope heavy too. Grows bland and tasteless eventually.

Is good for people who don't have high standards. But if you have read hundreds or thousands of these novels, it doesn't make any lasting impression
