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

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.

TLDR in Pro vs Con form


- Early Romance

... more>> - Good use of comedy

- Plot that actually seems to be going somewhere interesting

- Modern take on cultivation that I found refreshing

- Good pacing and use of action scenes


- 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

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:

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

Novel gets extremely repetitive. It has all the usual CN garbage tropes of face slapping, arrogant random people, etc. MC continues to make s*upid decisions based on emotions whenever he gets egged on.

The original translation for this novel had been removed and replaced with a new version. This new version doesn't involve strict/direct translation of the raws. Rather, we aim to create an English Adaptation of the story; in other words, we are "retelling" the story in a style that is as close as possible to standard English novels. Our goal is to present the same story in a format that most English readers are used to.

Naturally, the plot will not be altered. However, its presentation will be altered (narrator POVs,... more>> scenes rewritten using Third-person limited POVs, etc.) Info dumps will be minimized as the translator will make an effort to insert any long explanations of the Cultivation concepts into the plot rather than simply dumping the information in the middle of a scene. Logical errors and plotholes will be fixed in a way that preserves the general direction of the plot.

If you've already read the previous version, it is highly recommended that you read the new version starting from the beginning to get the most enjoyment out of reading this novel.

Rest assured that a lot of hard work and effort has been put into giving our readers the best reading experience.

We sincerely hope you enjoy this new version.

Happy reading. <<less

I gave this one 5-stars because in my opinion, it rightfully deserved it.

This is the second Chinese novel that I had read and fell in love with. And the title perfectly fits the story, the characters unexpectedly have interesting quirks that successfully drawn me in. The plot was well executed though still cliche, and the romance was very well integrated into it. The moments between the MC and FMC were to die for but the FMC's social ineptitude was a little annoying at times but I guess it was meant... more>> to be since she practically relied on MC when it came to society's behaviour and etiquette. It was like their personality were made to be like that to fit each other's strengths and weaknesses, kinda like Yin and Yang relationship.

But really, I love this one because it's not harem. Although there are other girls that went after the MC, he was still amazingly loyal to the FMC and always reassures her that she's the only one and of course the FMC was like that too.

Overall, a great novel for people who could stomach the usual cliche plot and the vomit-inducing romance intertwined in it. And also I pretty much learn a whole new lot about Chinese martial arts. :) <<less

This novel really surprised me, in a nutshell the characters, world and plot build untill now are good and consistent. The strong point of this novel is obviously the interaction between the MC and his gf.

Supporting characters are really well built too, they personalities are solid and well developed. The interactions between some of them are hilarious. The only downside are some characters that are retarded and a**holes, but it's pretty obvious that it's the author intention.

This is a preliminary review, but I will tell my thoughts per genre at... more>> the chap I'm at:

  1. Action (4/5) : Well this is just the beggining, so although there are some fights, the MC doesn't practice any combat oriented martial arts
  2. Comedy (5/5) : Certainly one of the strong points of this novel, the translator did really a good job adapting jokes, idioms and references. As mentioned, the interactions between the characters are really funny, you will really laugh a lot.
  3. Martial Arts (3.5/5) : As said, even though the MC is already cultivating its nothing really combat oriented, but soon enough he will learn some really serious techniques, I'm just at c70.
  4. Romance (5/5) : This is other strong point of this novel, they don't take too much time to become a couple

    Tough they behaved like a couple in c10, it wasn't official until c50 or so.

    they really reminds me of the horimiya couple (Funny and heartwarming). Her little pranks and expressions are really cute!
  5. School Life (4.5/5) : Though its not the main focus, mc's classmates and uni has a strong presence in the early plot. The university forum is too much hilarious, heroine really makes lots of funny mistakes there hahaha.
  6. Xianxia (5/5) : Altough the MC isn't yet too much concerned about cultivation and immortality, his gf spares no effort for him breakthrough the cultivation phases. His gf main goal is to make him a immortal.
  7. Overall (4.5/5) : This novel is a must read, I hope the translator can make it untill the end and continue his excellent work.

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.

The novel isn't bad but I quickly lost interest. It's funny and all but there's a lot of cliche of like arrogant dickheads, a lot of brawls over brain scenario, and the typical tsundere female harems who eventually falls for him because of his "manliness" improving through cultivation.

I guess this was more so on me, as I was expecting the MC to be a bit smarter and learn about the cultivation world from his fox spirit waifu as he tries to hide/adapt it to everyday life but was disappointed.

Still a... more>> decent read for those who enjoy the more mindless and troupe xianxia and wuxia novels. This is right up that alley, the only difference is it takes place in a modern setting. <<less

It's actually not to bad to read and the first chapters are quite funny. I has such a good concept, but the the author just couldn't put it into a good story.

The main issues I have with this story are:

1. The author constructs a harem that the MC isn't aware of. This story will probably not turn into a harem as sad as it sound since some girls have interesting characters. It's incredibly unsatisfying to read a harem novel that isn't meant to be one. It makes all the female love interests useless. Destined to stay by his side but never become a lover and stuff like that.

2. It's a generic Story where 95% of the male population are horny perverts who'd do anything to get a woman.

3. Most male character are obviously so unreasonable that it hurts while reading. And there are just way to many, one dissappears just for two of them to appear.

4. The MC is incredibly dense and looks like someone who is watching a different film most of the times. His little fox has to tell him that a person wanted to kill him after he fought them.

It's a rather pleasant read but the whole 'let's create a harem that isn't actually a harem' that the author has decided on should annoy both sides of the fight.

While well written, and translated, this ambiguity where he wants to take it rubs me the wrong way.

Like EVERY single overrated CN novel out there it has a good start with interesting settings and characters pretending to be an story that clearly had no intention to follow at all, the title no longer works and shouldn't be named like that.

It does start a nice story about raising an fox spirit and teaching her about human life which was fine and funny while she started to taught him about cultivation which was fine. It still followed the premise and the girl being so socially inept was great. But... more>> then it goes into a downward spiral of mediocrity becoming just a boring copy paste of your typical CN novel with girls in trouble, arranged marriage, arrogant spoiled nobles, sexy old boss lady, retarded echi scenes, s*upid Noble and humility spirit and the girl who is supposed to be the one of the protagonist became just an airhead that only depends from our s*upid MC and only she say praises.

You can throw this story to the tr*sh without issue, you aren't missing anything <<less
