TLDR in Pro vs Con form

Pros

- Early Romance

... more>> - Good use of comedy

- Modern take on cultivation that I found refreshing

- Good pacing and use of action scenes

Cons

- Some Taoism terminology was lost on me, but didn’t impende on reading

A More in Depth Look

I’ve been reading Chinese novels for over 3 years now and have read and dropped many books as something related to the writing style, plot, or something else irked me enough to realize the story wasn’t worth pursuing and I am happy to report that this isn’t one that I plan on dropping.

The story is a nice mix of classic Chinese novel writing with cultivation meshed meshed with how it all fits into the modern world. My main draw to this story was that I enjoy romance stories and was in the market for a few new pick ups and found this gem. The MC accidentally swallows a pill that the fox girl risked her life for and he starts to go through rapid changes and has this beautiful girl living with him after a life of loneliness while the fox girl sticks around in hopes of raising the MC’s cultivation to a level that she could kill him and absorb its benefits for herself after being thwarted in the first place. This changes early on in the story as she soon begins to grow feelings for him as he takes care of her in this new modern world as she was used to a very secluded lifestyle.

Her cluelessness to the intricacies of modern life that we all know today lead to many interesting moments in the story that can be used for great comedic effect and I found myself laughing out loud a few times.

Early on, we don’t get a really good idea of how strong the pill has made the MC and I like that vs normal tiers in cultivation novels as it leaves a sense of mystery as he grows stronger so it makes for some interesting fight scenes in the modern era.

The only part I did find myself truly confused is some of the Taoism stuff as xianxia is relatively a new genre to me so take that how you will. If you are like me and not as familiar with this type of stuff, it’s not a huge deal and the story still moves on as you pick up a general idea of what the author means.

Overall, it’s a story that I enjoy reading and that I try to keep up to date with as new chapters come out and one that I recommend to friends. <<less

A lot of good stuff I can tell you, nice mix of comedy, drama (the suspense is non-existence and you can see the plot a mile away), messy fight scenes and quite a few good historical stuff about China (and Japan surprisingly) and their actual real life cultivators like Wang Chongyang (王重阳), Zhang Zhi Shun (张至顺) and An Bei Qing Ming (安倍晴明). Love is in the air so much that I nearly screamed "riajuu go explode!!!" Usual nationalism is in, no surprise.

Of all the skills in this novel, there are... more>> these two quite notable:

Five Dragons coiling the Pillar

Beauty Playing the Flute

Yes these are innuendos. <<less

This novel is quite promising. The main character is a slightly chubby uni student who is apparently well known for confessing to campus belles and the like, which has caused him to become ridiculed. Nothing amazing so far, then we get a small glimpse of the mentioned fox-girl and other cultivation related matters. This novel has decent pacing from what I've seen, and the fact that the TL is good just helps it even more. Waiting for more.

Very cute and funny story, and quite enjoyable with some suspension of disbelief. What you expect is exactly what you get: ordinary (not so popular) university student meets the extraordinary, and his life is changed forever. This story reminds me of VPNA: The Prequel, but it's much better. Main heroine is incredibly cute and has good chemistry with the MC, and MC doesn't seem to be dense either. There are some parts that made raise an eyebrow:

Spoiler

Delinquents are able to chase a student in a university holding weapons, and not get arrested? (What the heck?) Even a freaking vegetable salesman is able to attack someone with a knife, with no legal consequences. Also literally EVERY single male character introduced so far is antagonistic towards the MC

Was good for the first few bits. However, the racism and nationalism is starting to piss me off. Why is it that every Chinese slice-of-life story has these elements? Also, the main character is rather dumb and uninteresting but he suddenly becomes a hero in the eyes of others. In a supposedly large city with cultivators, people have yet to expose him or ask about the changes.

Modern day setting earns it a plus since it's kind of interesting seeing Xianxia clash with modern day ideas.

Fairly cliche'd characters thus far. There's a fair bit of fun/mischieviousnesss to the writing which is why I rated it that highly, in all honesty though, there simply isn't enough plot to really have a solid idea as of yet, but based on what I've read so far, 4 stars seems appropriate due to humor+unique setting.
