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

Sue Kirin was a loser. Thirty years old with no hope for advancement at his job and no redeeming features except one, Magic. For as long as he could remember Kirin had dedicated his life to practicing the Arcane. Unfortunately, when he was passing down his knowledge to his niece, she lost control of her power resulting in a backlash of vicious energy that resulted in her being sent to the hospital, her life in critical danger.

Kirin tried everything to help his niece to no avail, just as he had begun to lose hope, a man claiming to be an immortal cultivator appeared claiming to be able to restore Kirin’s niece to perfect health on one condition.

Warning. This review is just me writing my observations concerning the novel, so it lacks a logical structure. This story is slow, but it takes its time to flesh out the world-building (mostly interpersonal relationships +some politics+some info on magic and cultivation) and the characters (their back stories, motivations, views, alignments)

It has a plot and it follows it consistently.

While it may be slow for some readers and it can get rather intense emotionally, overall, it's a story much better than most others of the same genre.

It also has some... more>> (actually a lot of) yuri romance undertones but, as I said before, it really is slow and it's all (unfortunately) just undertones.

It's bad because it's frustrating af, but it's kinda really good because the romance (or whatever we have for now) feels more natural and solid than what can be usually found in similar novels. The novel can make you feel for the characters and care about their struggles. The cast is very wide and colorful and there will probably be at least one you will like.

The MC in particular is one that's interesting to follow. She can be s*upid at times, but she's in fact very sharp, just too trusting at times. She's willing to believe in others and she is willing to respect those she holds dear and their decisions. The antagonists are all cunning and they can be frustratingly competent. Despite the MC being very powerful, they always find ways to turn the tables on her.

Really enjoyable so far, I thought this one is a comedic fighting story but it can get unexpectedly serious. It's a long story consist of 40-60 chapters each volume. Here's some of my review

... more>>

MC teach magic to his niece and messed up, his niece become vegetable ever since. He make a deal with an elder from a martial arts sect to cure his niece, at the cost of transmigrated to another world to protect the elder's great grand daughter for his entire lifetime. MC transmigrated and become a loli on the top of that. Here MC meet some new characters, friend and foe and has to deal with threat from other hostile forces as well some politics inside the sect because apparently the sect opinion is rather divided on deciding the sect's current lord. (In vol 2, especially s (he) has to deal with insiders)

Vol 1 focused on how MC accostumed to the new world and establish his/her sect reputation (Another sect killed one of the elder of MC's sect, MC take revenge by directly attacked the killer's sect headquarter and defeat the sect leader in a flashy manner)

Vol 2 will introduced new character that will become MC's sect aide. MC has to deal with insider here. Not much fight here

Vol 3 involved fights a lot. MC has to deal with someone that far stronger than him/her.

As the title suggest, MC has no dignity whatsoever (even though s (he) supposed to be respected), because of her/his easy going and somehow punchable attitude, and ended up constantly scolded by the sect current leader, Qi Qiqi. MC acted like an idiot but actually, s (he) by no means a s*upid person, s (he) just lack common sense sometimes as s (he) just transmigrated.

MC is not OP (as the novel shows that there're some people that actually far stronger than her/him) but VERY strong, enough to be called as "walking natural disaster" by other people. Enjoyable so far IMO


Hopefully there's someone kind enough to pick this project <<less

This is a great novel, because the MC past down his knowledge of magic to his niece, he didn't do it carefully resulting in his niece to be hospitalize then being in comer. Then an immortal master who claim he could help her on one condition and that is he show him martial arts for a year then afterwards push him down a building to get transmigrated to a other world why he would protect that master's great grand daughter who is the sect head. But our MC gets turn... more>> into a little girl but he was able to absorbed some of that master's power.

She is called the ancestor of the sect but she acts really weird but she is funny and is able to make the sect leader lose her cool (sect leader wants to hit her so bad). Our MC is shameful. <<less

Pretty interesting and somewhat amusing, although I have some mixed feelings about it... The MC is a bit too easy-going and s*upid for my tastes, even for a comedy. It's to the point where he should be dead many times over if not for it all being a huge joke. Excessive foolishness isn't funny.

The biggest fault might be that only a a few chapters have been released and no one seems to plan on picking it up. It's really a bit early to post a review at this time as... more>> many novels have annoying phases, and many of them have annoying phases at the start before the MC adapts properly... <<less

The premise is good. But there is too much self depreciating humor. The MC just takes disrespect too much even for a modern person and has no common sense. Obviously this a comedy genre if it was even mildly serious MC would be dead.

AgriSoul already gave a good summary and basic overview about the story so I'll focus on my impression:

The focus of the story is telling the / a story each volume.
It contains no cooking, cultivating, face slapping, etc. Episodes. All grudges and kind acts have a realistic consequence. (Killing an "insect" will make the father angry, but will not cause any big shot to suddenly appear. Saving a the friend of a big shot will cause the big shot to warn an enemy the MC can't fight against, but the... more>> big shot will not risk really fighting against the enemy of similar power.)
It concentrates on delivering comedic acts (the MC acting silly or deliberately tease a certain aggressive female) and delivering great fights where the MC has to think.

The tags include Gender Bender. While the tag is true, it rarely is a theme in the story. It mostly is used for comedy purpose. (S) He is too lazy to do his/her hair and gets made fun of because of it; a certain female ends up soaked because of an accident, but as the MC makes fun of the situation (s) he is hit flying before any ecchi can really occur.
The MC has a choice of staying male (which he'd prefer) or becoming / staying a female. He decides to honour his promise to the elder in his original world though and (for now) remain female.
The female cast will not (instantly) fall in love with the MC - or rather until now, none of the female cast sees him / her as a romantic target. They all so far see him / her as a (unreliable) family member (who gives rise to protective urges) / child.

I personally quite like that the story so far doesn't really focus on the MC cultivating and training to get stronger. (S) he is already very powerful in cultivation right from the start and also has her spells, that make her more powerful than any other on the same level. This allows him / her to be / act quite carefree.
She will learn during the story though her position comes with responsibility and her power is often not enough to get her will or protect her loved ones every time. (There are much stronger persons around and people working in a team or assassins may still hurt him / her.)

His / her spells are very useful (no need to carry water for washing) and powerful (can annihilate an area of many football fields) ! Yet in battle against enemies of the same level (s) he can't use most of the powerful spells - they require gestures and text and take too long in general. Thus they give the MC a nice advantage but prevents him / her from being OP.

The characters are well fleshed out and each have their own will, secrets and agenda.
Their development is well done. For example the MC is forced to learn that this world is not as peaceful as his old one and death comes easily. (S) he also learns to move in politics, though she mostly lets the sect leader handle them.
The sect leader also changes and becomes more and more able to express and act according to her will - instead of putting on a mask and always acting how it is expected of her / in agreement with the elders.

There is no black and white here in this world. Politics, power games, revenge and fight between races play a big role. For example the elders in the MC's sect expect certain benefits and are not always of the same opinion as the sect leader or MC; fighting and winning against another sect cases their ally and trade partner to also be unfriendly to the MC's sect; and a master level / big shot beastman (?) may choose to mostly stand by while his race is putting up a desperate struggle against extinction in order to protect his own sect. <<less

I enjoyed reading this novel for the same reasons that others have mentioned.

... more>>

My only nitpick is that in the earlier chapters the MC who is the sect ancestor was sneaked attacked by a disciple, the fight ended quickly when the MC threw out an attack which forced the disciple's teacher to reveal himself in order to defend his disciple, it was also shown that there were two other sect-elders monitoring the entire situation. So what punishment does the disciple and master receive for disrespecting their "elder", who is of the highest level in terms of seniority and authority? Nothing, just a slap on the wrist (a kick in the butt for the disciple and that's it). Even when the MC is the sect ancestor, he still plays the role as a proverbial punching bag, where respect for ones elders is no longer upheld to a fanatic degree as long as the MC is concerned.

Started as comedic but gets serious as time passes.

Far better than the normal xianxia novel.... more>>

Betrayal from the sect member who s (he) trusted for the greater good of the sect (although she gets rescued by the betrayed member later, and dies (sacrifices) as an apology and atonement to the mc) .


Although the MC acts as a punching bag for the sect master, but gets serious when needed.

She is the ancestor of sword sect, but has little to no experience with swords.

In terms of magic (a foreign concept in this world) she is unparalled, as shown when she rampages even when she gets critically poisoned. The MC is expert in multiple elements of magic, although s (he) is an expert in flame magic.

I remember reading this at least a year ago. There were only 3 chapters out and then the TL dropped it. Glad that it was picked up again. The story surprisingly has a serious side to it. There is comedy laced throughout the entire story. But the story isn't afraid to have serious stuff arise.

I do wish we got more of our MC though. It would be interesting to get more of a POV.
