Invincible fists, unrivaled hammers!

Junior Leopard, who traveled through time and space, takes what he earns and does only what he needs to do, never undertaking too much responsibility nor being so chivalrous as to do every good deed. His so-called ambitions from his past life to change the world were cast aside.

However, when a forbidden bloodline awakens in his body and his eternal eyes begin to shine once again, he discovers that his iron fists give him the power to force others to follow the truth and to reforge justice!

This is a cultivation legend about a modern man that was thrust into an amazing martial arts world.

I wrote a scathing review of this story at chapter 69. After reading the positive reviews, I decided to persevere, and read on until 213, and I think it warrants amending my review. At ch. 69, I rated this story a 1-star. At chapter 213, assuming NovelUpdates allows a decimal point, I would rate it 1.4-star. It gets marginally better, but a thin margin, at that.

This story needs a lot of things, and paramount of them is an editor. Unfortunately, I strongly suspect that Qidian has never heard of such... more>> a thing.

The first 165 chapters move at a pace of rotting compost. If it could smell, it would resemble same, also.

First off, the author tries to painstakingly make the story 'plausible, ' describing how a child can't possibly have powers to overturn mountains and destroy planets. In my opinion, this deserves a hard whack across the head: Yo, wizard, you started the MC as a 30-year-old Chinese office worker who got 'inserted' into the body of a 3-year-old toddler. If you start with a ridiculous premise, commit to it. Make him overturn mountain. At the very least!

In fact, I would settle for him doing anything. Anything, at all.

These first 165 chapters, if run through a good editor, would have been condensed to about 8 chapter, tops!

The MC does very little. There are side characters introduced, to whom copious numbers of chapters are dedicated, but they have little bearing to the story. Pure T.M.I. Up to chapter 165, the MC is basically a little dinghy caught in a storm in the ocean. He's thrown around, helpless.

Riveting stuff this isn't. Honestly, you can read the first three paragraphs of every chapter, and with the title of the chapter, you can figure out what's going on and move on.

From chapter 165, it changes. Not by much, but at this point, I was looking for a turn-around (spoiler alert: I am eventually disappointed).

This is the point where the MC is actually beginning to make decisions. Stories are made by presenting MC's a situation, and then he'll have to choose how to react to it. Up to here, the story is absent that. So based on that, there's an improvement. Once the MC starts to think and make choices, we have a story.

Pacing isn't any better. It's still glacial and way too much unnecessary details are put in to bolster the word-count. And inconsistencies abound, such as the narration points out how 'reasonable' the story is, but then every three chapters, the MC gets a lucky chance. Up to ch. 213, this MC has more lucky chances than most characters in other xuanhuan stories get in 1, 000 chapters.

Also, I am reading a Qidian Int'l translation, so I don't know if it's bad writing or bad translating, but the MC owns a hammer that in one chapter was described as weighing 200 kg., in another it was.5 (half) kg., and then the third time the weight is mentioned, it's 2, 000 kg. The weight of an MC's weapon is not a crucial detail, but if it's written down, it should be consistent. How hard could it be? Apparently, very.

I'm a reader, and I can stop reading, but let's all pray for the guy translating this garbage, because he/she is bereft of the choices to just stop. Someone needs to tell Snake Swallows Whale to try to swallow some creative writing classes, or at least change his name to Snake Desperately Seeking Editor.

Conclusion: if you read 20 chapters and like it, well, up to ch. 213, it's pretty much the same sh*t. If you can't stand the first 20 chapters, you're not going to like the next 200. Yeah, I'm sorry, everyone, this isn't that 'hidden gem' you were hoping it would be. <<less

The starting was brilliant, we get a middle-aged man in a small boys body, growing up together with his family of 7, he acted like a smart man would in this situation, like a little kid. The world building aspect was pretty slow, but slowly we get to find out more about the world and its customs ... more>>
Spoiler

Like the small detail of the way marriage in carried out in a small village, or the sudden introduction of qi.

[collapse]

But the introduction was not forced out, and we know that it was coming. And it was also then that the story got uselessly complicated, with all the descriptions of Internal qi and external qi. The specialities of Ignis skill (more than 5-8 times) are described again and again, this is just one example. The story goes utterly boring as the info dump keeps going for no reason.
Spoiler

His eye skill was introduced in the beginning when he was saving his pregnant sister from a bear, but beside its initial inception, nothing changed.

[collapse]

Now for the side characters. They suck!! They don't even have any personality to speak of.
Spoiler

THe only interesting character introduced in the novel (MC is not intresting) was side tracked after he obtains his little one-eyed wolf, and we don't even know much about him besides that he is one of the chosen participant for the patriarch of an unknown sect.

[collapse]

I hated every bit of this novel and before long I was side scrolling the chapter again and again, and it didn't effect the story, as only one event will happen in the story at a chapter.

  1. He goes to buy books 1 chapter over
  2. he practices new technique -ch over
  3. somebody died-ch over
  4. he gets kidnapped-ch over
  5. he hunts rabbits-ch over
  6. he found the novels pet-ch over
  7. he hates the novels pet-ch over
  8. etc!!
f**k this sh*t!! Don't try reading this novel, its a utter waste of time or just scroll on and wait for the dialog. (Which most of the time is MC talking to himself)

Oh and translation is sh*tty too!! <<less

If you guys can get through a couple of weird chapters, this is a fantastic novel. The young master cliche only comes into play way later when it doesn't matter and only to showcase the MC's point of "young masters be young masters." It's very fun to read and the author describes the the cultivation system really well.

Don't listen to people who only read 1 chapter and criticizing... don't miss out on this great novel

The world settings is an ok...

Character development is actually good..

The main dish of this novel is the plot...

... more>> While MC plot armour and lucky encounters are quite ridiculous...

But is just a way for MC to keep up witht the plot...

So you will realised that MC while op is not actually op...

Author tends to forget stuffs,

But is bearable...

I dun understand why people rate this low...

Sure the beginning is abit boring,

But that boring stuff is necessary for us readers to understand the world without info dumping...

Also the MC cultivation is step by step while not fast neuther it is slow...

The only bad point is MC super luck...

I wish they are more of a developed harvest/inheritance than random chance by...

I reconk if MC sudden strength gains are by inheritance, there should be about 20 extra chapters for it.... <<less

This novel is kinda boring on the cultivation side we got a very young MC learing cultivation from his borther-in-law and picked from his life on Earth and little action.

Also the autor spends far too much time with pointless side characters that are doing things far more intersting than our MC but after there stuff is done they leave and never return and that makes pointless. Por exemple the One Eye Wolf was pretty much handle by some disciple guy and thats it the MC never have any interaction with... more>> the Wolf even after all the build up so disapointing.

A ok reading but if you want action this isn't for you. <<less

I don't understand how this novel has such low ratings. Sure the start is kind of slow and lame but still it gets quite interesting later on. Let me just mention a few pros and cons-

Pros -

1- Characters which follow human logic and are reasonable enough.

... more>> 2- no cliche CN tropes

3 - As MC is still just 13 yo there is no love interest so there should be no harem here

4- MC knows how to deal with the situations as he is neither insufferably arrogant nor excessively humble

Cons -

1- TOO MUCH info dump. Although author writes info in a somewhat interesting way, they still leave me with sufficient headache.

2- fortuitous encounters occur almost every 8-10 chapters.

Conclusion -

In the beginning, everything seems slow and random but as you read later on, you find that every side character describes affects the plot and MC a little bit. The behavior of MC also provides a new outlook as a modern worker. For me, until c124 it's been at least a 4 star novel. <<less

Summary of first 24 chapters: A whole lot of nothing happens. MC discovers he has a special ability, does nothing with it. I want to read about an interesting guy who actually goes to places and does stuff, not some random kid who just sits at home and meditates all day. The only event even remotely interesting was him killing a bear. Killing a f**king bear. Really. Pick up any xuanhuan and more interesting stuff has happened in the first chapter than has happened in 24 chapters of this webnovel.

This... more>> isn't the intellectual scheming type of novel either. There is none of that. The MC spends all his days practicing Taiji fist and still sucks at it (keep in mind he's been doing it since he was like 3 years old, for 4-5 years). No adventures, nothing. Just the MC trying to learn some martial arts (Ignis skill) that's basically Level 1, and not making much progress. If this is the rate of power progression then how long do we have to wait until the MC is able to accomplish anything significant? How long until anything actually interesting happens?

Chapters are filled to the brim with useless exposition about the MC thinking "my blacksmith teacher is so good! I hope he will teach me more stuff!". Entire chapters are full of this garbage. Complete waste of words. <<less
