Rise of Humanity


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

In the world birthed by Pangu, the Three Sovereigns lit the spark of humanity that the Five Emperors would later fan into a blazing fire, eternally branding humanity as the leaders of the world….

This was a time where twilight had descended on the reign of the Human Sovereign and the Five Emperors had yet to emerge – humanity was merely one of the myriad races wandering about the vast cosmos.

This was a desolate and barren era. The monsters, devils, heavenly gods, and deities of all races stood aloft; with the demons, heavenly souls, and spirits dancing freely around the world.

The humans were still a feeble and burgeoning race, often taken as livestock and offered as sacrifices to the pantheon of races that ruled the world together from within the great wilderness.

This was not the era of the Foreworld, but the barbaric and untamed era of uncivilization!

Let us rewind back to China’s ancient and classical mythology and recount the legendary tale of how a single figure led humanity out of an epoch of darkness and into a new dawn.

Please sit back, relax and enjoy the (Rise of Humanity) !

tl;dr keklel is a neanderthal, this story is solid, you will regret not reading it.

The setting is interesting, humans are basically the devolved version of a celestial race that used to rule the known area (not sure how much area yet) but now there is only a single bastion of humanity left in a jungle filled with scattered tribes that can barely survive. There are other species but they treat humans as livestock so there is quite a bit of motivation for the MC to help humanity rise.

The cultivation system... more>> is like a mix of coiling dragon type iet stories and doulou dalu (syncing with spirits to power up until they become gods maybe). There is a lot of dao type stuff and perception is important. We only know as much as the MC does for the cultivation system which isnt much as he is an ignorant kid from a small tribe for quite a few chapters.

The opening arc is excellent so far, he is finding his way, doing insane training, learning about the world and how f**ked humanities situation is.

There are even dark undercurrents from outside and in so there is a bit of desperation mixed in with power up/enlightenment chapters.

The action is solid, it isnt overly wordy and some of the fights are pretty epic which is kind of crazy since he is just a noob atm.

Great start so far, cant wait for the next 100 chapters so I can binge. <<less

Read 27 chapters and here are my thoughts:

> Everything he does is about trying to uplift humanity

This really couldn't be further from the truth. So far let's review the things he has done:

    • Found a girl he likes, for no reason. There is no backstory, it's just some random girl he met and they exchanged literally 2 sentences and that's it. And then he regards her as the love of his life, for no reason.
    • Fell into a ravine and found an old spirit who knows some godlike cultivation methods. Moreover this old spirit is also not very wise as it tells him to kill/rape every girl he comes across, for no reason.
    • Spent multiple chapters cultivating techniques that the old spirit tells him to cultivate, so he can get revenge on some demon who killed his girl (the one he only exchanged 2 sentences with).
    • Inane scenes of him sneaking into the female quarters so he can talk to his girl then getting caught by female cultivators who want to beat him up for staring at them naked. Wacky hijinks ensue.
    • MC is greedy and risks the lives of his peers so he can drag back a corpse to sell for money.
    • MC is arrogant and wants to beat people up to prove that he's superior (see the line 'To crush the other heroes and stand above, who else is there but me?')
From Arkeus' review I expected something more like Reincarnator. Instead this is very much a typical xianxia story. The MC is a hotheaded teen and has absolutely no idea what maturity is. Constantly acts irresponsibly putting people around him in danger.

tl;dr regular xianxia nothing to see here, move on.

OK, this is a good one. I have not yet completed it because I got distracted and then kept hoping that someone will pick it up. So very, very glad someone did. It's been completed a week or so ago at 1547 chapters.
... more>>

This is really going with the theme of "Humans have lost all their powers after [secret apocalypse] happened, and now the main character, Zhong Yue, will try to reverse what happened". Everything he does is about trying to uplift humanity, and as such there are going to be significant themes of loyalty/brotherhood/etc.

Zhong Yue is an incredibly talented cultivator who constantly does his utmost to pave his own way to go further than anyone ever before, and everything he does not only feel earned, but we also get a lot of examples of other incredibly, incredibly talented cultivators. Some rivals, and some friendly.

Please give it a try. <<less

So far a pretty solid series, It (so far) focuses on a poor yet hard working cultivator who stumbles upon a legacy in the wilderness. This spirit acts has his mentor (somewhat) in exchange for carrying him around while he looks for a pure blood member of the original god race, of which, surprise! The humans are the degenerated descendants of. Our main character's "cheats" are basically a snarky infodump spirit, and a very high ability to comprehend/visualize techniques (and eye for detail as it were). So far other than... more>> the single cultivation technique and some fairly risky advice there isn't any "OP" cheats from the spirit like in some. It has (so far) maintained a good balance between interesting strength from the MC without too much Plot armor. I'm curious to see where it goes. <<less
