My Disciple Died Yet Again

Description

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

The Revered Master, Yu Yan, known as the number one in the cultivation world, waited for sixteen thousand years, and finally took in a disciple. He taught her carefully, and took care of her diligently. He watched her as she slowly grew stronger as she comprehended the laws, and just as she was about to soar into prominence… she died!

Hence, he once again took in another disciple, carefully taught her, diligently took care of her, and then… she died again!

Thus, he took in another disciple, and not long after… she still died!

Yu Yan: …

Disciple: …

(Why do I always get picked up by the same person every time I reincarnate? Haaaa…)

The story is one of the best I've read. Though it took me a long time to start reading it because of its description.

The MC is a female from Earth that suddenly found herself in the body of a villager in a Xianxia world. Things happen and she enters a Sect becoming the disciple of the strongest in the cultivation world. However when she started adventuring she died, and found out that she reincarnates every time she dies. The MC is relatable and hilarious~~ She is a normal girl that... more>> finds killing wrong and criticizes the mindset of the usual Xianxia characters we find in other novels. The side characters all have personalities and are fleshed out. Some scenes make you laugh out loud and some cause you to shed tears. I truly enjoy reading this and I'm addicted to it. It deserves 5 stars. <<less

I love this novel, it's hilarious! The MC is sassy, strong, and everything you could want from an independent modern woman. The male lead is also pretty great and the numerous supporting characters are all very unique with their own stories and interesting quirks. The story is a bit more martial arts, adventure with supernatural powers than the typical romance you'll usually see. The plot does get confusing at times but the author does a good enough job to keep the reader invested. I recommend you at least give it... more>> a try, the first 10 chapters or so. <<less

I really love this novel... I had been putting this off for months and months for some reason, but I highly recommend that you pick this up! What is already translated so far is really easy to read. Also the translators did an AMAZING job. You can't tell at first glance, but after moving onto the raws, I realized that this was probably such a hard story to translate because the original has so many Chinese puns and contemporary slang... it could be that they just skipped things to make... more>> it easier, but still, you'd still have to decide which jokes to skip and which ones you can't skip.

So I actually really liked the concept of Hua Qian Gu (special disciple and special master relationship), but I basically hated literally everything about that story. I also couldn't finish it. My Disciple Died Yet Again has the few important things that I wanted from Hua Qian Gu, but like, minus everything I hated (the misunderstandings between the leads, STUPID female lead, green tea bitches, disappointing character developments, dog blood melodrama, garbage relationship conflicts and cliches... basically EVERYTHING! Phew, I am SO sorry if you are a fan of HQG and you read this!!! please excuse me, I am just really bitter and petty).

Anyways, reading this in place of Hua Qian Gu was a complete win-win-win for me!

The only reason why I actually have not yet finished My Disciple Died Again before writing this review is because I am at a reincarnation story that is a little tough to get through...

Spoiler

I'm at the arc where she doesn't have a body and she's inhabiting the body of the super beautiful "pillar of the world" girl and she's like in the worst imaginable third wheel situation. This reincarnation arc is actually SO hard for me to read. I can't seem to confront how this damned "romance" between that one violent sect leader with the crazy acting skills and the "pillar" beauty is the Exact sort of cliched romance I normally love to read... and yet it looks SO STUPID AND EMBARRASSING when you put a normal character (the female lead) as a foil against the whole situation. *buries face in hands*

[collapse]

On that note, I adore the way this whole story is framed around various different "plots" and "cliches" that feel really familiar to the readers. Basically, this story is about a main female lead who transmigrates into a xianxia universe where she has the special role of cleaning up "bugs" in that universe. In each reincarnation, the main female lead has to swoop into the situation and try to prevent the "bugs" from wreaking complete havoc in the universe that she's currently occupying. She talks about most of the bugs in otome or novel terms such as "the male protagonist!" or "the supporting female lead!" and it's just really funny and refreshing for us readers who have a lot of experience with these cliches... For the most part, it seems like a fun outlet for the author to rehash all our favorite video game tropes, xianxia tropes, and novel tropes.

I truly appreciate all the innovative aspects of this story. The main female lead is a NORMAL, likeable girl.

Speaking of normal. PSA: 28 is not middle-aged. I certainly still consider 28 to be young... most people don't have real careers yet at 28. Honestly, I feel like even in most parts of Asia we wouldn't consider 28 to be old these days. I feel like I only see such a judgement in Asian novels!!!!!!! That is, the judgement that for a woman to be 20 and older she must be considered "a spinster." UMM? As a visual reminder, please take a look at many Korean dramas such as Healer and My Love from Another Star, etc., look at how young and good-looking 28 can be. At age 28 is when you have the normal amount of intelligence and maturity suitable for the type of battles and situations that the female lead is up against... "High school age" or whatever is considered "young" in these universes is the weirdly young age...

Spoiler

I have very little criticisms about the main male lead for all his good qualities and poor qualities, but if there was one moment when I deeply doubted that he was worthy of Zhu Yao was when they first met and he sighed and regretted that she wasn't younger.

[collapse]

Of course, age is basically completely irrelevant when we talk about how old the characters actually are, considering the hundreds and thousands of years that it takes to cultivate. The main male lead is like at least 16, 000 years old while by the chapter 300s, the main female lead has about a couple thousands of years under her belt as well. I'm just saying the note above about how 28 is not old in case some people are really wildly mistaken about how "old" Zhu Yao looks because PLEASE! My Park-Min Young is still a fresh and young and beautiful girl...

I might update this review but bottom line is I love this! Please read! <<less

Welp. I'm sold. This by far is one of the most funniest things I've read in quite some time.

Basic setting: Modern-day, 28 year-old computer programmer suddenly finds herself transported into another, but typical, xianxia world as a peasant. By sheer accident and shortly after arriving, she is discovered to have an incredibly rare cheat ability, which lands her the position of disciple to an extraordinary (in many sense of the word) and powerful master.

Why I like this (numbers aren't meant to convey any given order) :

(1) the MC retains... more>> her modern sensibilities, which sometimes causes her to react in a way that conflicts with the "common sense" of the world and lands her into VERY amusing situations that we, as modern readers, may wish other MCs from similar genres would react the same to.

I'm super glad to see that someone, who's lived the majority of her life (in both worlds) in the modern world, doesn't have SUCH an easy time conforming to others' way of thinking. I get irritated that authors sometimes use such conformity to show off how "clever" their MCs are, such as inflicting torture as a "light punishment" to show off power/status or having the first instinct be to KILL for some slight against them. I mean, it's hard enough to even convert one's eating habits (such as becoming a vegan), do you really think a person can so easily toss out the very values that created the entire foundation of who a person was before!?

Plus, the MC's values, abilities, and attitude are easily relatable, so the reader may continue a feeling of personal connection with her, even as she progresses through the plot.

(2) The humor is great. The MC is a modern person with modern "common sense" and she's stuck in a world that has a very different "common sense." Plus, the MC can be a bit thoughtless, crude, and petty. That and the fact that her master is tens of thousands of years old, with his own "common sense, " and has barely any interactions with others, much less someone like the MC, makes for great humor.

I read and love the transmigration/reincarnation/fish-out-of-water genre because I find great comedy in the clashing of worlds. I mean, why bother writing under such genres if you're not going to use it, right? Just have the MC be from THAT world if the story isn't going to do even that much. This series gives the exact kind of humor I look for under this genre.

Spoiler

Because of his age and isolation, the master is almost as out-of-touch with the world as the MC and the story plays on that to great effect. So some parts of the story is like a time-traveler from the past meeting a hero summoned from a different dimension XDD. Misunderstandings galore.

[collapse]

But that's not to say this series doesn't know how to be serious when it needs to be. In fact, the transition between the story's tones is very well done. The situation for comedy/tragedy/drama is presented clearly to the readers, so the reader shouldn't feel disoriented from any shifts in the story-line.

(3) The background and explanation of the world is relatively short and concise and is given when needed, so the reader may understand the world without the story's plot becoming lost for the sake of world-building.

(4) The side characters aren't a bunch of 2 dimensional support characters that only exist for the MC's benefit.

I really love the depth this author gives the characters. Even while they're integrated with the main cast, they all have their own goals/dreams/dilemmas separate from the MC's. They have distinct personalities, which corresponds well with their unique character backgrounds. Plus, their personalities and actions are consistent, so the reader is never left trying to rationalize why a person acted in a certain way.

Spoiler

By the way, I especially adore the spoiled little Wang. I'm not usually a fan of tsunderes because many tend to be extremely bratty with very little redeeming qualities to make up for the former. But this character has enough dere and other personality traits (such as nobility, bravery, diligence, respectfulness, and loyalty) to make up for any tsun characteristics. In fact, I'm actually rooting for him to succeed and find happiness.

[collapse]

So yeah, I'd tell anyone who hasn't decided to read this series yet to go ahead and pick it up, especially if any of my reasons listed above are appealing reasons to. <<less

This is a great parody of Xianxia. No, it isn't a parody of a specific series or a writers specific style, it is a complete parody of the genre in general. Not just Xianxia, but reincarnation, soul transmigration, and world with game elements as well.

Its really funny. It has performed comedy in its purest form, taking the mundane situation and giving an unexpected outcome in defiance of your previous depositions. That is comedy, creating an extraordinary outcome out of an ordinary event.

And this does it well. You will be surprised... more>> at how funny it is.

The only down part is:
Spoiler

Once the MC develops feelings... or rather is forced to develop feelings for her master (thanks to the overlord/god of this world), it goes kind of down hill. It comes out of nowhere, and makes you tilt you head at "why"

[collapse]

Other than that, this series is pretty entertaining. <<less

A very cute and hilarious series, probably a go-to for parodies and comedies. Best to read after you’ve tried a few wuxia series and gotten sick of the overbearing characters since knowing some cliches really helps identify exactly what MDDYA is mocking, while you’ll be nodding your head in agreement with the MC’s assessments of them.

The female lead’s personality is very spunky and relatable, and where most MCs level up through near-death experiences she does so through actually dying. While her master is a cute but powerful airhead. And the... more>> story involved her being sucked into a game to clear it of bugs (wuxia protagonists) whose overwhelming advantages (cheats) could potentially destroy the world. Overall it’s hilarious, mixing one-liners with humorous scenarios for a well developed and unpredictable story with few weaknesses. Though I’m not sure how the other 300 chapters will play out, I’m very keen to find out. <<less

A great story and nice comedy, definitely has great ideas but updates for the chapters have been slowed recently due to the person translating having a actual life...

There are times where the MC just dies to early in lives where it was interesting and cool and makes me wanna to just flip a damn table (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ which I want them to continue on that life for a bit longer... Then she just starts dying absurd amounts of times...

Comedy is enjoyable.

My reason for reviewing it so lowly is simple, the MC is pretty much an abusive, naive, hypocritical, self-absorbed airhead with an inability to grow as a character no matter how much time passes, as far as the humor I haven't really noticed anything I found funny, there are some comedy routines but they're often just her getting her way thanks to being the MC and despite how badly she may deserve to have that not be the case.

I rate it 3 stars. First, let me get this straight: This novel is very good. Amazing even. My only problem is... ... more>>
Spoiler

WHERE THE f**k IS THE SHOTACON TAG

[collapse]
I'm not gonna talk about its positives, others can do that better than me, so let me just rant instead.
Spoiler

Okay, unless you haven't read it yet and you're reading this spoiler (but don't worry, I do that too), you will get what I am talking about. Right from the bat, we are given this kid from the same village as MC, which, in all honesty, made me drop the series back when I just started reading this genre, Xian xia. Not that I have anything against MC liking/paired with the younger ones, in fact, I really like it, especially senpai-kouhai or Niisan-imouto, and you can even call lolicon.... but there's this thing I just realized throughout reading this novel: I hate reverse harem. Well, that can be okay, even if it was, and it was even on the tags, but that can be overshadowed if the harem boys are, like, made fun of, or made funny, considering how the main guy is already set. Sadly... on this one, it's not that way at all. All we have is an obsessive child (ren). Like, wtf, like WTF! Okay, maybe I am just overacting, so let's just let it be, the novel is fun and all even with that anyway. Not like we'd have another obsessive kid that turns into an obsessive adult later on right? Hahahaha... yeah, no. Apparently, the village boy, the one with so many emotional scenes that I don't really get because there was not a single chapter dedicated to show how he even came to like her, has grown up, so, I mean, like, he's gone. Look, the shota is gone. Author, look, he's gone. Hey, do your job, make another one. If someone actually said that, then please tell them f**k you for me. So, walla!!! Here's another shota for you. The previous one was not irritatingly infatuated with MC enough, so let's make one that's even more irritable! I like to call this one, the shota from the... where was it again? Crystal? Let's just say egg cell, although that's prob wrong. Anyway, here's your shota. Enjoy!.... not. Sigh, so we have another one that is, well, obsessive of the MC. I mean, hey, how about letting us relate a bit why these kids like her? Well, yeah, sure, uhh, she's special because she was the first female you were close with and depended on, and apparently no other girl exists besides her in the sect/the first person you see after birth. Yeah, uhuh, both are creepy. Do girls like these? Hey, I can understand if they were girls instead and the MC was male, but in all honesty, this is by the way MY opinion, so my perspective matters, right? Not like there's no amazing female MC novels out there (kenkyo kenjitsu, all right!). Anyway, they're creepy, they're creepy, reading it makes me so uncomfortable, and it's really creepy. The eggcell shota, I don't know why, but every time I read him, I just have this imagery of him being malnourished and having big bulging eyes, that my precious guy on Lord of the Rings. Well, yeah, sure, some things are bad, but hey, the novel's still good, right?... let me just say, I liked not one bit of the novel after she went to the higher plane, and this started right about when the master transcends. Things feel unfamiliar, and I never really got the chance to be familiar with places other than the mountain. Then she goes to another place, and I just can't have a clue where the f she is. Pretty much thrown there, then,.... I don't even know what then. Of course tho, my main issue, the harem boys. We travel to another place and bam, guess what, we get a clone of that village boy, which is equally feeling close but we hate him, and of course, hey author! We need another shota, who is unusually super attached to MC! This one, I'd like to call the bird egg shota. Yeah, there's 4 in all, but things might turn out that there were just 2, but I don't have the patience.

[collapse]
So my problem is, the side characters. Maybe it's just me, but the side characters are not fleshed out enough and then they suddenly play out big roles, you can't help but be irritated ya know? But be that as it may, there some things that I liked about the novel. And these things were the one that made me hate the novel as well. Why?
Spoiler

They disappeared. Maybe I haven't read enough xian xia, but after the first antagonist, there's no more, or maybe not as much, counter xian xia plots. That OP Harem Protagonist guy, I liked the concept. But after that, the others are not as striking. One other thing that I really liked was that little radish, her disciple, but what the f**k, after, like, 1000 yrs, she somehow finds her about to be raped right after escaping that world thingy? There's a limit to coincidences. I mean... 1000 yrs, but it just had to happen after she arrives? Woooaah, and I though that MC from against the gods miraculously arriving on time when that empress of the something country was about to lose to the army of that phoenix thingy empire. Oh, spoiler alert. Bit really. But anyway, after this, she talked to for a bit and.... she... no, there's no and. She leaves the little radish alone, she goes to blacksmithing, cuz apparently she's amazing. Hey, your disciple, I think she misses you a lot, hey! And then, she saves the world, and never gets to say goodbye to little radish. Ummm, wtf, what happens to her, what was all that blood bending sh*t if she's not fleshed out, holy sh*t, I really thought she'd go OP and wreck her entire generation or some sh*t because MC didn't do that.... but what the f**k do we get. She gets to be the poor girl in a tragic love story.... really? You can have your shotas, duck you, but don't neglect little radish. I don't even know anymore after this, pretty much went downhill.

[collapse]

Some things were cool, like when she was a dragon, and turning little radish into a genius, which never happened for all I know, but this novel made me disappointed even more than the time that I actually realized that MC from Something Gods and Demons was actually a lump of sh*t by acting all righteous but actually was literally a pile of sh*t of hypocrisy <<less

Very amusing! It's a bit rare to find a female protagonist lead Xianxia, well at least for me it is lol. This one is really enjoyable to read and its the kind that most people wouldn't put down after they start reading it. I suggest giving it a try, no regrets for sure.

The story kinda goes its own way... the MC doesn't go around killing anything that offends her sight or w/e like other xianxia... she tends to stay to true to herself for the most part.

I started reading this because of some good comments and rating about this novel, but after few chapters into it I feel like the story keep repeating the same thing over and over.

Especially when MC knows that the villian is the BUG, and she keep saving him like WHAT???

She keep dying over n over because of the villian fault and I started to think like “In your face!” when she died cos she literally keep getting herself in trouble when she could just ignore him and let him die instead... more>> of giving him little face or smth.

In this few chapters that I read, the only thing I like is how MC interacts with the little wimp and her master who doesnt have any common sense. Its quite cute and funny at the same time.

Sorry to say but with just that alone is not enough for me to continue reading the novel. I stopped at 84 when a new BUG appeared.

I liked the series quite a lot at the start, but after one dramatic turn, I think the story shied away from taking risks. The first few reincarnations were kept fun by the main character constantly meeting people she knew, but with a lot of time having passed in between. After the end of the first ark however, the story seems to lose its focus as less and less characters stay along between reincarnations until it's just her master. Unfortunately, at that point, the protagonist and master's relationship is pretty... more>> sorted out and the story devolves into largely the same motions of figure out bug, grind levels, find mcguffin to beat the bug, get killed, rinse and repeat. She does cycle through different settings, but they all don't really feel that different. Jokes and plot threads also get quite repetitive, as she's always fighting some op arrogant enemy that she can snark at while inevitably outdoing them in the end.

Spoiler

It's a shame, because the end of the first ark legitimately had me hooked, as I had not expected the hither to silly series to have the guts to kill a long running character in a rather brutally realistic way. Sadly the emotional payoff is removed by the god system itself deleting her memories, and the death ends up not impacting much of anything later on because of this.

[collapse]

I would definitely recommend at least reading up to the defeat of the first villain, as the story is quite excellent up until that point. <<less

This is one of my top favorites. If I ever lost my memories and could only choose to remember three C-novels, this one would be one of them. You can't miss it.

My Disciple is a parody of all these transmigration and reincarnation tropes in one, but it's still a story in itself and a really creative one at that. The main character, Zhu Yao, dies and reincarnates with a new avatar over and over again while she tries to fix the 'bugs' of this universe, the glitches that make it... more>> endangered. Each avatar is unique, and don't think that there is anything she can't be. Because she's been a lot of things.

There is so much humor left and right, you'll almost die of laughter. It makes fun of all the tropes in this genre and you'll see some of them in a new light.

And we can't forget about the romance. It's surprising, but not unwelcome at all. I love the Male Lead and I don't think there could have been anyone better for Zhu Yao. She's really smart but stupid at times (but in a funny way), and he makes up for it, but he also lacks common sense which she has to fill in for him. Literally, when they got s*xy for the first time, she had to teach him how to do everything because he didn't even know such a thing existed (he's pretty much been living on top of a mountain his whole life).

One of my top recommendations. You can't pass this book at all. <<less

Love, LOVE, LOOOVE this series!

This one has all the tropes but so wonderfully parodies them and makes them its own. The MC's internal dialogues are hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable. Her one liners and cussing will make you laugh out loud. She is one of my favourite female leads - feisty, direct and funny. Truth be told, I found her cussing strangely relatable (coming from an asian culture, its not too rare to find people, esp older folks, swear like this; makes it funnier for me).

The male lead is strong, clueless... more>> and just adorbs af. Story wise, it is filled with cliches but the unveiling/circumstances behind the different deaths keep you interested.

The translator is doing a wonderful job as well. I had to go machine translate the raws because I just couldn't wait. Obviously, the M-TL did it no justice tsk tsk and I felt I would be missing out on the nuances that really make this an enjoyable series. So I will just calmly wait for the english translation.

In all, an effortless and undoubtedly enjoyable read! 5 stars. <<less

Read this right NOW NOW!

This is such a magnificent novel!

I love the main character. She is hilarious! I teared up laughing in the first 10 chapters. You need a certain kind of humor to get her and since I am a gamer as well as an... auntie *cough*, she is incredibly lovable and relatable. Little romance happening here and if there is, well, ice block male lead will probably deflect. Lol.

You have to understand to be carefree in this novel and dont get attached to other cannon fodder... more>> side characters because based from the title and from the way the MC lives through her lives, well, we can say she is a bit sadistic and carefree as well.

The translation is the best of the best among other novels translations I have read so far.

This is a rollercoaster ride of a novel and every arc is like a separate story with the same lovable main character with different buffs and circumstances and even backstory she makes up. Imagine logging in a game while chosing different avatar characters but you still remain you! Brillant brillant!

Invest some time in this and you will be heavily rewarded with surprising AND unpredictable plot and lots of cute radishes and dumplings!

I avoided this story like a plague for over a year and was forced to find better novels instead, just because someone reviewed that the MC is acting like a goody-two-shoes (and that's not realistic, so he says).

I agree to it wholeheartedly, but as I delved deeper in the story and was caught in it, I realized after reading the latest translated chapter (basically finishing this story in a day) that this novel is a fresh break from those angsty, dramatic and intense xianxia novels (with onion cutting ninjas) I've... more>> been reading for the past year.

I don't know but the pace of the story and the plot was well written (though I wish some side characters will remain for a long time, the author basically treated them like disposables), and the MC's charater improvement is amazing as well as the humor. The romance was very light and... it was light.

However if you are desperately trying to find an MC without humanity and only does things for his/her benefit, you shouldn't read this at all costs. This story is very light hearted and trying to find realistic mentality will only make you angry because this story is an exact opposite of that (you should read Warlock of the Magus World instead).

Overall this is one of my fav novels and I would surely recommend this to others.

P.s. The tropes in here is sick, that's what made it humorous <<less

I have just finished reading the translations up to current chapter within a day, and just have to write a review to show how much I was enraptured! First of all, the story. I love this story, in which it shows how much the author actually thought out of the story instead of the current trend in which most xianxia and wuxias are having typically the same recipe.I still enjoyed them too, though but this novel brought a different kind of attraction. The story does not really on fortuitous encounters... more>> or amazing level up just to progress the plot but actual plot. Talking about the characters, I loved the MC in which she is funny and witty. The master is also dangerously adorable, with his affection towards his disciple. ♥♥ I mean, gosh, I want a master like that too!

The downside is that, the character backgrounds were not really properly established especially the MC. Although, this may also be counted as a good point as the author did not dwell on unnecessary stuffs just to increase the chapter counts. Anyway, I absolutely recommend this novel for anyone!! <<less
