This will be probably the first time I have ever written a review but here goes.

This story from start to finish is pretty satisfying, when I first started the story I really didn't expect anything much I just read the synopsis and thought this will probably have a lot of s*x lol

Jumping into it at the start the MC is pretty kind and a bit naive when it starts out when he first enters the world he meets two people who treated him sincerely his life when crossing over is... more>> going pretty good but just when he thinks everything is going well (from the first chapter the story starts pointing in the direction of him becoming the successor of the head the most OP sect in the lands and the story truly makes you think it will be so but) Bam! Plot twist! His entire life goes to sh*t in a few chapters.


MC meets his so called Fiance and at first everything is nice the mother in law is especially good to him, but who would expect that the moment the mother in law leaves on sect business the Fiance straight forwardly tells the MC that she has no intention of marrying him especially him who has no talent in cultivation (her cultivation level is too low to even realize that he has a special body so she just judges from testing his cultivation level.) She then goes on to threaten him into giving her the sect leaders ring his master (her father) gave him. Naturally our MC outright tells her to go kill herself (okay not that but he did say something but I cant remember) our MC then sneaks out of the sect only to be found out and chased down and almost killed by his own Fiance if not for his special body. Then he's pretty much the enemy of said sect but another old man who he meets in the beginning saves him and ends up dying for him. While on his last breath, marries his daughter to the MC and makes him his successor to his city lord position and such, now the MC has to shoulder this task while competing against his new dead master's sons who want to become the next city lord (and this is just the start of his troubles)


Story wise I give it a 4/5 as its a good read, it progresses nicely the MC is pretty much the underdog from start to finish because nobody ever believes this guy is going to win even me (lol) based on what he had to fight against every time but of course the plot armor never fails to kick in at those times. The characters all play a part in developing the story as it goes on even some of his die hard enemies at one point end being the ones who come back in the end to give him the greatest help. Lots of twist go on in this story from start to finish to keeping you hooked.

Things I really liked

    • MC uses real world knowledge in several wars developing weapons to win wars in which he has no chance to to win.
    • MC's deposition/personality doesn't change even to the end of the novel
    • Because of the laws of the world the wars do not depend on the powerhouses that have high cultivation but the smaller strength of armies of each city and so on.
    • A good amount of the story is politics

      as the MC has to convince people to fight with him against an enemy who quite frankly has more than 300 years preparation while he has none so its fun to see the methods he has to try to win.

    • The harem, each woman has a different personality which causes some small fights between them in the beginning.

      There is one specific woman who ends up in his harem later that pretty much he tricks her that he is her husband who she thought was dead (well the truth is the husband asks makes him promise to pose as him and take care of her and his family) although they had been married but it was pretty much for 1 day before he had been killed. MC basically takes the wife's first time and gets her pregnant when she finds out the truth she goes balistic but later through there other encounters you realize she actually start to fall in love with him not to mention he is the father of her soon to be kid but she trolls him constantly with her tsudere personality. She later on becomes one of the people who are constantly helping him even if it means to drug another woman and bring her into his bed lol

    • The main antagonist is one of the biggest twists in the entire novel you wont even know it until he reveals himself.
    • Most of the characters even the ones you probably thought were insignificant still make it towards the end
    • The ending pretty gave closure to everything you needed even his insignificant girlfriend from earth.
Things I didn't like

    • I forgot
So overall its a good read if you don't like harems this probably isn't for you, although the main character doesn't strive for a harem but the author naturally wouldn't allow him the choice. Overall Character development is good,

Good world building, Its not as dark as his current work, MC personality is good his sticks to his values even when he becomes the strongest in the end he still treats everyone as he did before even those below him, doesn't needlessly massacre everybody who he goes against. <<less

I am not sure why so many are saying this novel is good. It's terrible and hard to continue reading it. I dropped it after awhile. Probably was most put me off about this novel is the MC personality. He understanding of woman is really lacking and he is really petty. What worse is he just doesn't learn from his mistakes.

The most what annoy me about the MC is his so called attraction for 1 of the girls he met in the beginning that was suppose to married him. After... more>> all the pain and suffering she put him through, he somehow still like her more than any other girl. It feel like he focus more on the beauty then what's in the inside. She did later fall for him and turn into a good gentle one, but I still get annoy how the MC was focus on her.

The villains is another thing that is hard to understand. At one moment they are friends, then enemy and then cooperate to deal another enemy. It keep switching back and forth. Is like the author keep using excusing to have his enemies tries to spare the MC or tries to keep those villains around longer. This is probably the thing that I hated the most about the novel. A lot of negotiating and cease fire for the most idiotic reasons.

The romance really sucks. Is more like it's full of sadness and drama. But there is a lot of sexual content, which might be the main reason the readers still read this tr*sh.

MC has a lot of plotarmor and luck during the whole story. The beginning part (first 10chapters I think) was really already a example. A guy that he meet is well know the be one of the strongest and after only talking to him 1 time, the old man like his personality so much that he tried to protect him and sacrifice his own life for him and entrust everything to him (even his daughter). The old man died and his own daughter and his people are even in more danger. What even worse was, the only reason MC survive that day was because his enemies decide to spare him.

Not a great novel. Too many coincidence and plotarmor for my taste. <<less

I'm not getting where these people are saying this is a good novel. I was thinking of dropping this novel wayyyyy before I got to 385 but kept reading hoping it would change. It didn't.

Beginning was good till around c30 then the plot started to go to shit.

So much bullsh*t in where the MC forgives his opponents and let them live for some s*upid reason like "you can't kill me because of my family blah blah" bullsh*t that would get them killed in other novels and instead offers them compromises... more>> so that they can come back and try to kill him again. Same old enemies, never changes.

MC seems to have a masochist personality, always wanting to help his so called female "enemies" that eventually will become his lovers. One constantly tries to kill him and actually did but he never really tries to kill her because he pities her or can't go through with it.

Anyone that can read this dumpster novel to the end, I tip my cup to you. <<less

I think the author pretty much hates this MC himself. The MC faces nearly endless troubles one after another to the point I started to think that why doesn't this guy just die and go to hell. His life in hell would be more enjoyable for him than being alive.

At this point the amount of duels he lined up and the pressure of it is enough to make anyone insane.

Read if you want to know the story of the most unluckiest MC in CN novel history.

A decent start, goes downhill around the time MC meets the old mans daughter.
... more>>

The girl is not as s*upid as he expected, she doesn't want to get married and requests him to hand over the sect master ring.
The arrogant MC feels wronged and starts out an endless conflict. Every single bad thing that happened to the MC is entirely his own fault.

The girls are mostly one-dimensional, despite coming out from different backgrounds and having different personalities, they all end up as s*x dolls eventually.

The part about MC being from earth? You can just forget about it, his morals and behavior are nothing like a real person from earth would be. You will realize this on the first 10 chapters. The "Nine Yang" talents stuff for example, it's over once he leaves the old man, he is just average.

Power ups?;

This old scroll here? the strongest technique ever that will save the world, and only you can use it.
This prison here? It's actually a mystical place and the only one who can enter.... is someone who knows Chinese.

Tons of plot armor;

I will not kill you now but in 3 years we will fight and I will humiliate you.
I will not kill you because public opinion.
I will not kill you because you are not worthy of dying by my hands.

Unreasonable behavior;

Instead of taking the ring from your hands right now when we are deep inside my sect and I am many time stronger than you, I will give you a 3 hour head start so you can run away and will invite people from another sect to hunt you. By the way, that's because I don't want to hit you so I will bring people over to hit you instead. That's because I fell grateful for you taking care of my father. Okay?

I am obviously colluding with evil, and so is everyone here but we will never admit it. And we will talk like justice is on our side so we can fell better about ourselves or something.

The objective of the evil way is to destroy the world and everyone knows it. But heeey maybe they will spare me if I help them kill everyone who opposes them.

This novel has it all. <<less

I am sad right now, I have a weak heart and normally don't like those novels where the MC is basically hated by the world, where even the author hate him, and this novels I started reading thinking that the MC would be someone with high status right from the batch and would be an easy-going novel that I would read to pass the time, but I was wrong, if I like a novel I normally read the raws because I can't wait and so did i. Now I am... more>> in chapter 47 and basically am quiting because I can't take it anymore.

The MC has a nine yang body and because of this he can't masturbate, touch a woman and even less have sex, whe he touched his girlfriend he basically had an 43 Celsius fever and almost died, and when he was 20 years old, in his birthday he was drunk and ended having s*x with his girlfriend, he litelary combusts and when he wake up he is in a ice cave, he is alone and naked, also because of his nine yang body he basically can't feel cold, and his body is very hot, with this his body melted some ice while he was sleeping and there was an old man there who he trough was dead, but wasn't, after the old shout at him angrily in an language that he doesn't know and almost kill him, later they start caring for each other, they learn their languages, the old man teach him martial arts and later he learns that he is the sect leader of one of the most powerful sects and that he is basically considered the number one cultivator, the old man has a daughter and want him to marry her, also to succeed him as sect leader, and with his last energy cleans the MC marrows so that he can cultivate more easily and fast, the MC then is lost and is picked up by a nice guy, the guy is going to the same sect that he is going, there he find the wife of the teacher and with his master token she believes him and accept him, his fiance act nice in front of him but later the threaten him to give the ring of sect leader to her, he doens't want and she gave him one hour to think better, the MC immediately tries to run but is found, in an clif he jumps, he is save by the nice guy that toke him there but they catch up to him the guy don't give him to them but dies after repelling them, and before diyng he gives his daughter and position as city lord to him, there in the city the elders doesn't accept blah blah blah.... well I am tired from writing as is now 5:18 am and don't wanna write anymore, basically he is f*cked up by the world, everybody thinks that he is crazy and it seems as if even the author hates him, I know that later he will prove himself but I can't wait until there, this is an novel that deserves 5 stars but it isn't for me and my weak heart. <<less

This novel MC is the greatest tr*sh in history. He is the basically the ret*rd version of OP MC. The way he handles his problems is beyond s*upid. Really who in his right mind would expect the perfect woman who put every effort to become the sect leader to suddenly follow the order of "hey I really like this guy so I give him the sect free of charge and give you to be his bi*** " without question. And he has the nerve to play the victim " I... more>> was always spoil and she doesn't want to spoil me. Fine I will go and leave the the greatest place to train and unlimited resources while being on the run from the world top experts and still be able to be strongest. Ok I can do this" he doesn't even try to use his talent.

So my overall score for this is.5/100 and that is for participation. <<less

  1. The MC here is intelligent and he tries to use scientific methods from earth against his enemies. He always has a big picture in mind when dealing with them.
  2. The enemies in this novel have personality of their own unlike those arrogant young masters we see in other Chinese novels, they are scheming.
  3. The female leads in this novel have their own thinking and don't just randomly keep falling for MC and overcome many situations do they fall in love with the MC.
  4. And finally the plot of this novel is what makes it keeps interesting and you won't believe who the final enemy is and I won't spoil it for you guys in my review.
  5. Overall this was a very interesting novel and if you don't like dark situations then this novel is not for you.
  6. The only fault of this novel is the righteous personality of MC that sometimes keeps getting him fall into dangerous situations but he overcomes them with his brains.

I had a love/hate relationship with this novel. The beginning was great, giving us a sense of urgency and seemed more like a real cultivation novel. This continued till about like chapter 200, but I soon got really disgusted with the setting the MC lived in. Incest, betrayal, lots of r*pe, cheating, even cannibalism, author did not even hold back.

Just to give some examples (read at own discretion, there were alot more too) :

    • grandfather raping his granddaughter constantly, same grandfather would feed millions of people to his eagle army
    • son having s*x with his mom, being caught by another girl, then raping and killing that girl
    • a music pavilion that would traffick children (include r*pe and murder)
    • barbarians raping and cannibalizing a faction that helped the MC, got saved by MC's army, then r*ped by the army
    • girl was forced to go to war with MC, r*ped by alot of people (including some wolf-people and old men), got pregnant and caught by MC, and then killed herself
    • one of MC's wives was r*ped by her father when she was a kid
    • Also EVERY villian wants to r*pe and kill his wives, like all of them say it so much, I got numb to it

I cringed in those chapters until we moved onto the war phase. I liked the kingdom building in this part of the novel, especially's the MC's use of his previous world's knowledge to fight in the World-Ending war and loved the world-building. Also, this part of the novel had less disgusting stuff mentioned above and had some solid world-building. About chapter 700-and onward, it became a REALLY good novel. The secret of the chaos continent, the big bad guy, the reason for his crossover, etc. It had me on the edge of my seat. This part of the novel had also a lot of plot twists, including betrayal (you won't see it coming, I assure you).

Well, the ending, it was kind of weak, but partly due to the fact everything leading up to the ending was so grand. Author rushed the ending in exactly 2 chapters, when it took him almost 500 chapters to set up for the ending. He left TONS of plot holes. It did leave me dissatisfied, but I do admit everything before was so good, I kind of just shrugged my shoulders.

The ending was bad but the overuse of r*pe especially was the main reason I dropped this novel to a 4 star. The best part of this novel was undeniably the world-building from about chapter 700-1250.

Not for people with soft hearts, this isn't a typical xuanhuan where the MC is godlike compared with his enemies and crushes them all rampantly. He has to take a lot of winding paths, endures a lot of hardships, and make compromises in order to gradually overcome his foes. If you're looking for a more realistic xuanhuan novel then this might be for you, but it's definitely not a light-hearted read.

... more>>

The main reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because the enemies are bullshit. He always has enemies 100 times stronger than himself who can kill him but disdain to do so, he's always forced into situations without any choices because he isn't strong enough to control his destiny. I don't like this feeling very much when I read this type of novel.

Yes, his talent is so-called world best, but his enemies get this bullsh*t so-called "Evil power" which is basically a cheat power which makes them practically undying and increases their cultivation basically for free. And because he started cultivating late he takes ages to catch up.

The first thing I should mention is the cover page of this novel on this website. I came across this novel few years ago and thought it was a gender bender type story at first glance of that cover and skipped it over without even reading the synopsis or Tags.

Story is 2/5. Everything Author does is force things (troubles after troubles) and MC heroically arranges for scheduled duels to solve them or to escape from them temporarily, and the villains happily agree to it. The first life and deaths situations... more>> at the beginning were really a bit too much for a novice MC.

If the author is going to make the most hateful woman as the harem lead, then he should've left some clues and some of her weak moments, so as the readers could somewhat accept her later when things are better (after 300 chapters).

MC isn't ruthless enough, Nor is a cunning fellow. He's utterly useless with his words against enemies except for throwing 1-2 year challenges. Edit:The thing to be prepared for the most is Someone's life is being threatened infront of MC, and he almost always gives in. Author played with this tactic bunch of times. Hate it <<less

such a waste, its a pretty good story, but I dont like how the author describe it like instruction manual....

the story lack detail, lack ambience, lack atmosphere, lack feelings....

the main character is weak, I dont talk about powet or abilities, it just kind of weak like the MC doesnt have identities or personalities....

... more>> if you compare other character like "Yun che" ATG, he is strong willed, lecherous and shameless,

or "Seol Jihu" TSCA who kind hearted, childish, the MC of nine yang, idont find any trait, its like he is the fusion of all character...

there are too many forced plot, too many negative chapter where the author push the MC down so much, like the time when MC level up and deveat enemy, he is imediately defeated, its like the reader doesnt have the euphoria of MC development....

i am still reading it... hoping something interesting....

after finished reading it, I understand that this is actually a good novel, the first 300 is little bad but its getting better... <<less

This is my first review and I generally don't believe in NU reviews cause I always find out after reading a novel that some people over exaggerate or put things out of context and I would've missed out on a nice novel if I didn't read it myself. So to me a review is just like a synopsis to get an idea for a novel.

Anyways I have never read such an insane novel like this one before. Every single girl in this novel pissed me off, all of them managed... more>> to change my mind at one point, idk if this is a spoiler but all of them have tried to kill the MC at least once and some almost succeeded. I can't help but feel that this is a story for masochists. Archenemies becoming best friends, best friends becoming traitors, worst girls becoming best girls, best girls turning into tr*sh, the MC NTRing other dudes, other dudes NTRing the MC. By the end of the novel I have come to hate each of the originally 'good' heroines and to love the ones who were the worse girls at the start.

This author is nuts, there's one girl who was such a sweet and innocent airhead and adores him like a little sister and then she ended up marrying like two other guys and became an heartless enemy for such a long period of time. I mean it all worked out at the end but the plot twists man, there's not a single genuinely untainted guy or girl in this novel. Trust me, you will know what I mean, the ones you trust the most and the ones you hate the most have two sides to them. I think Yanyan was the only girl who didn't give him any grief up to the end, after her original bs at the start, she became a loving wife all the way to the end. Anyways I hope that gave you some idea of what this insane novel is about, thanks for reading. <<less

I chose this as a filler/break story inbetween longer stories. I regret this... Not because the story is neccesarily bad, but because the translation itself is horrible. especially in the later available chapters. It would probably be more readable as an MTL translation than whatever this has turned into.

Well, after spending 2 weeks reading this I will say that it has both good and bad parts.
... more>>

The plot:

The adventures are well developed, so much so that you certainly do not get bored and the author puts a limit where he knows more or less when he should finish an arc and start another, I have almost never become bored or tired of reading.

Being honest, the 40 to 100 first chapters (I do not remember) were deplorable, I really did not really want to read it, but I read a good review here (which is not now) and then I venture to try to read it and after having passed those 40 - 100 chapters the story becomes more decent

He is a weak MC against opponents.

- A hypocrite.
-engineering, from the first chapters was so naive.
"s*upid, there were times when you wondered why he did not kill his enemy, only to become his ally and his disgusting ideal of saving mankind.


There are all colors and flavors, the MC has them of different species and at least the author took the trouble to give each one its history, but there were always one or another set aside, took the job of giving them personality and these women most often were stronger than he and they are earned because he had a certain ability to make them warm. I am satisfied with regard to the Harem, although I had left some holes.

- Some are useless and some are very strong and intelligent. (Most are strong and smart)

- Although it may be contradictory, relationships seem forced and if you think about it, you ask about the blind faith that they have to MC or their unconditional love, although the author has put one or another girl being rebellious.

-There is no NTR.


"She is not very detailed and only says something like" English beauty "or" Oriental beauty "and those adjectives as white as milk, thin, slender, big eyes, face like a fox. I do not complain because being too detailed would have bored the reader, after all it focuses on the adventures of MC.

- In the landscapes is not so detailed but gives you the idea of ​​what the place is like.

- Cultivo, At first it was a reverendo rubbish, he practices something called sword of the massacre and really at first the MC seemed to throw powers, like naruto screaming every time he launches a rasengan, but later he fixes it because it really would have filled with content unnecessary and the chapters would become unnecessarily long and ends only describing the powers, such as a magnificent dragon, A beautiful rain, etc., etc. There is also a great difference of level in level, example: at the beginning the increase of power is not much to say that the MC is in level 5 and the other in level 9 then there is not so much difference and MC can get to win, but when they are in the highest crops of level 8 to 9 it is an immense amount of energy that is like double.


This is the most complex part, being only one person and owner of a country, everyone wanted to destroy it but the race came demons and started the sides and most went to the winning side (the demons) so MC had to do everything possible to win allies. If he killed the son of a king, would he gain his favor? No, he tries to convince them and explains their plans and tries to fill them with his ideal of justice and shamelessly calls the people on the devil side.

Most of these people wanted to r*pe their wives and kill their children, but the MC had to swallow everything and look for the most efficient way to unite humanity and the only way was to become ally of them and he accomplishes and little by little they become comrades, so with the allies he wins, I'm really satisfied because if he had to find a way to win, even if he did things like cheating to follow.


It's a good ending but I did not get full, I did not feel that everything was complete.


My general opinion, I liked it very much, at first I suffered it but after entering a vicious reading and in two weeks I finished it and that is 1288 chapters. I entertained the harem and the adventures I had with their girls, is not perfect because the MC does a lot of nonsense and is very lucky, but at least in the end the author tries to explain several things but leaves some intrigue.

Until the end you do not feel that the MC turns op. <<less

There was one thing that I only felt when reading this novel.... It was regret. Why? Because it was only the first time I was so infuriated to this kind of MC and the way the author puts up those scenarios feels very forced (this already me having the lowest expectations for an MC or the plot and yet the author brutally fails to impress me more) Also, those negative things that happen to him continue to pile up and even though the MC tries his best to mediate the... more>> situation, it only becomes worse because the author wants his life to be a diabolical one. It was to the point that I was thinking that the author is illitirate and utterly ignorant of how life works. How could someone like him write a piece of shitty novel? What's more, even his talent of Nine Yang doesn't even do sh*t in any way, it only makes him become faster in cultivating which is no more no less. Yes. You heard it right - no more no less, no powerups, no quirks, it literally doesn't do anything (yeah it does cure yin poison but thats it lol) utterly piece of shitty talent if you ask me. One in a billion my ass.


Him being s*upid was an understatement. If you ask me, he really suffers from cognitive dissonance saying his current wife is the most beautiful in the world blah blah blah and suddenly on the upcoming chapters you will hear him say that to another woman which is extremely loathable and has really nothing to do with the MC except destroy his current life.

What's worse is that - he wants to become strong but his sense of justice is majorly twisted because there are certain people who're really evil to him but HE CAN'T KILL THEM because that person is beautiful or any personification that is somewhat closely related to the word beautiful (e.g. elegance, most talented girl, you name it) like really? REALLY AUTHOR? YOU PIECE OF sh*t LOL 😂

And this is the worst, MC was chasing a certain type of multiple power up cultivation treasure which would really boost his potential to be the strongest (I think its called Mystic Fire). This was my only reason that I was reading because I really really want to drop it right at any moment but I held on because I want the MC to turn the tables and redeem himself from all those unfortunate events that piled up to his life but hey guess what happened? All those troubles, vicissitudes, hardwork to obtain that are gone IN AN INSTANT and was taken away by SOMEONE ELSE. At that point I gave up because it already became predictable that he would resort to luck and psychological means just to survive and to become strong the author will put up another treasure purely because of plot armor and yeah I think we all know where this is going but hey if you want to read more I won't stop you lmao 😂

This is my first time reading such a disgusting novel, because what ?, Because MC is too weak there are many classic excuses made for every fighting session the excuse always "I risked my life because I have xuan veins and it works" is too much plotarmor for MC, because MC is the main character naturally there will be a plotarmor, but what's very confusing is why MC is so dramatic? and also always acts in accordance with what his enemies say like his MC tends to go with the... more>> flow of his enemy's words because what because the MC is too weak is always the observer in this novel is always helpless, easily trapped by schemes and conspiracies, it is very disturbing there is no peace to read because very disturbing there is no peace to read because fluctuating emotions, there is no life in the story all about terrible burdens and struggles, and again the enemy is very strong but the MC is very weak, always helpless about every problem he suffers, is this a martial arts novel or a love drama novel ?, sometimes I always think this is a novel about love struggles which is very sad, because too much helplessness MC at the beginning of the chapter has met high-level enemies there is no peace of cultivation always sudden cultivation and also the cultivation level is very messy from enlightenment to my 2nd realm to my 3rd realm do not know the name of his realm to a level 4 bell warrior I keep reading until the next chapter suddenly level 4 is level 5, the name of the realm is the same as the enemy, then it changes again to level 5 mystic martial realm, blah blah, my headache is that the level of cultivation is too messy, only being told realm elite realm mytic realm ancestor realm ancestor martial but level how much is it really confusing always changing the realm name fu * k, what's wrong with trying to tell the level of his cultivation first so it's clear that it's not messy like that in every story line changes his cultivation, dongfang biling how far cultivation with MC is it not telling how far the level is His cultivation is weird, weird sh * t fu * k, Mc's character doesn't change in his future, still childish, too naive, always feels he's right, stubborn (indeed this should be because in other novels like that too), and also there are no advantages, many disadvantages, there are no major traits for xuanhuan novels or martial arts such as, "no forget to cut trees from the roots ", pretentious, disgusting, most people read this novel because it must be 18+ adult genre but it turns out that the story has lots of very unpleasant scenes, the author is too burdensome for MC, there is no balance for any strength, for opponents it is common that there are opponents who are stronger than MC but from the point of view of the reader we are not happy because in every fighting session MC is always battered and never dominates his enemy, and also in my opinion it is very unreasonable that Mcnya bear too much humiliation, ridicule, looked down on, held back all his anger, suppressed all the time, no he thought of taking revenge in the end always forgiving his enemies after all ended, already knew his enemies trapped MC in the scheme and wanted to kill him but finally it was very ridiculous there was a chance that revenge was always released, too pious MC I was so moved just to get back li dignity does not cut trees from the roots hehe better in my opinion just change the genre of novels about virtue, piety, and wise people, I get goosebumps when I think of the author, venting all his emotions on the main character he wrote haha ​​that's terrible you know, but in all the trials he suffered still married to that woman so ridiculous that you want to laugh out loud, enemies become friends, friends become enemies, enemies become girlfriends. What exactly is the author experiencing in real life? I mourn, and for you I highly recommend reading this novel for people whose hearts must be strong and cruel because without them you are like a furnace that explodes all the time and always feels frustrated, furious, strengthens your soul and prepares your heart hahaha, if you have a strong heart more don't be afraid of having to go to a mental hospital hahaha... <<less

This is a hidden gem among Completed CN Novels. It is a solid 4 star for me. I know that the translation is not moving at all, but I will have to thank those few translations because it helped me discover a gem. Nine Yang Sword Saint is an amazing title. You can read it here via machine translation

Now allow me to give you a brief synopsis about the story. The story in itself is fast paced. There is cultivation growth, world building, romance, and a bit of flair here... more>> and there. Yang Dingtian may not be the best MC that I had encountered, but the character he portrayed was great to say the least.

Like most CN's that cater around weak to strong categories. Nine Yang Sword Saint follows the same routines. The only difference is that the author did well on his story telling, and it didn't stray much from the scope that it will make the story redundant and repetitive.

The romance setting was nice. It wasn't spectacularly amazing, but it was decent. The girls entered center stage and gave their curtain calls at the right moment.

The mystery was there and it was fun to guess some of the events that might transpire after picking up a few clues here and there.

World building is good. It wasn't as detailed as you might expect from other titles like "Release that Witch" and the likes, because the MC is like a shop keeper that just waves his hands and things get done. He's so busy that he has to go here, go there, go overthere and so on and so forth. So world building is not his strong point and just allow his people to move things for him.

In regards to the cultivation aspect, it's quite different from other titles like ATG (Against the Gods). Here although increasing in cultivation levels is the norm, for me it didn't feel like a priority. For me, the MC is just trying to get stronger in order to protect his family. Not like some young masters who murders entire families (and their 9 generations) because they annoyed him or such.

The MC is not that smart, but he is honest. He's not lustful, but he has many women (and kids). The story in itself will keep you in for the ride until the final chapter. Some twists here and there made it more interesting. Frankly and fortrightly, I salute the author for doing an amazing job for NYSS. I had fun, it was a title worth reading. I hope I find similar or better titles like this in the future. I highly recommend this to anyone who are looking for something decent to read here in Novelupdates.

Now I'm wondering... What COMPLETED title should I read next? (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

This novel is quite good, full of twists and turns, enemies become friends, enemies become lovers, etc. You also need a tough mind in reading this. Regarding the MC, he is OP but you wouldn't feel it at all. His main personality also stays the same throughout the whole novel unlike in other novels where MC starts from gentle then becomes ruthless. Regarding the romance, I quite enjoyed it a lot. The female leads have their own roles and personality and not just a b*tch where MC will have s*x... more>> with and not be mentioned again. Ending is also good, although I'm not satisfied with it but it's definitely better a hundred times than other Chinese novels.

Things that I dislike (some probably are the selling points of this novel) :

  • Author likes to force the MC in helpless situation which causes me to suffer a lot in reading this. Only masochist would enjoy those.
  • MC is a little bit naive in the start and his emitting this righteous kind of aura
  • MC is a softhearted, a savior type guy (I like a rational ruthless MC more)
  • Lot of harem members, not enough screen-time (although most of them have their own duties, but due to large number of the harem, their interactions with the MC are describe in group. No more one-on-one interactions/conversations. Also at the ending, only a few members were mentioned)
  • He's gentle, but killed one of his potential harem member (although that woman really did bad things that maybe unforgivable in MC's view, she still deserved a better ending. It's unacceptable for me because there are also two of his harem members that did a lot of bad things to him and even infatuated by his rival enemy but still he accepted them and became part of his harem)
