First of all, let me say that I went into this really wanting to like it. I was thinking that it might be surprisingly funny, a chinese take on saiki to kusuo no psi nan, with more violence and a completely different approach with a cultivation world instead of a modern day world. Meanwhile it was seemingly going to parody some stuff, which is nice too. I wasn't by any means expecting any masterpiece, I just hoped for a novel that could provide some cheap laughs and perhaps that could... more>> fuse the japanese and the chinese types into something new and relatively fresh. I already knew that any romance was probably going to suck and that there would be quite a few parts I wouldn't like, but at the very least I thought it would be amusing enough to read. How wrong I was.

This novel is extremely subpar. The author sucks at this, he has no sense of humor and has no knowledge on how to write something funny. Sorry to say this, but I can only see people new to novels, youngsters or those that aren't exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer laughing at this.

I've not laughed even once since chapter 1. Not even once. The ONLY slightly amusing part was when he broke that sword into two and called out his parents for having sh*t for brains in chapter 1. That's it. For a gag novel, this is truly a bad sign. Everyone has different senses of humor, but if an author rapid-fires gags at least one should make you laugh in 21 chapters, right? I mean, he must somehow, by sheer dumb luck if nothing else, manage to hit your sweet spot at least once in 50-100 jokes, right? But no, against all expectations, this author is just that bad and my expectations were crashed and sunk in a way that made me think of titanic.

Seriously, this has all the bad parts of a chinese novel and all the worst parts of a japanese novel melded together, rather, it's pretty much a shameless rip-off of saiki kusuo no psi nan with a slightly more chinese MC which makes it far worse than the original. This MC is extremely boring, he has no motivations and his reasonings are half-assed at best, he's similar to the MC from the japanese equivalent but the similarities ends at the superpowers they possess (and it doesn't work in a cultivation world, it makes no sense for him to, for example, be unable to turn off the mind reading when he wants to as a powerful cultivator), this guy is far more of a moron, that he doesn't speak isn't helping, at least kusuo spoke with people through telepathy or whatever but this guy isn't really speaking at all, he's just thinking. The girl is obnoxious to say the least and it quickly goes into the forced romance route. The parents are irritating, they're kind of similar to the parents of saiki kusuo in that they're dumb as hell and doesn't think further than their noses, but they lack all the fun parts of that guy's parents, instead being too s*upid with too few reactions and the doting isn't quite there, they also try to control him, like his mother forcing the MC out on a "date" with a girl he doesn't like and hasn't interacted with by threatening to remove his snacks otherwise, of course the MC lacks the balls to say no despite being one of the most supreme beings in that world and even having no real respect for his parents because he finds them to be too pathetic.

The class is s*upid, I don't even know what to say. Rather than to say they're s*upid, it's perhaps more apt to say that they have no realism to them and all feel out of place and fake, are they even people? The mascot is dull, its backstory was really weird and it wasn't amusing, makes me wonder why he's even there, especially since it has no personality to speak of that would contribute to the story. The teacher is ret*rded, sorry to say so but she truly is and I'm not trying to be rude here, the instant she enters the classroom for the first time, she says they are the worst students she has ever had (despite never intearcting with them before) and says that the MC is a twit since she accuses him of talking the loudest, meanwhile the MC hasn't spoken even once since the novel started and hasn't interacted with anyone so it couldn't possibly have been him...

The attempts at gags are cringeworthy, it's painful to read it, that's how bad it is, even the way the MC reacts grinds my gears, seriously, he suddenly changed his entire personality and became ridiculously mad because the girl, who dragged him around and screwed up his free time, just happened to feel relief because he was allowed to escape?Sorry, I don't really believe that. I'd buy it if he got a little annoyed or pissed off, but he turned them into fireworks and killed them instantly... Geez. Even if you want romance, it's better not to force it, this MC was shown as a cool-headed "I don't give a flying f*ck about anything" character, but he suddenly acts like that because of such a reason? Ugh.


Every event happening just feels hollow. Nothing holds any weight at all. We don't get any proper introductions to any of the characters and everything ends just as fast as it starts, usually within a few paragraphs. It leaves no lasting feeling and I just wonder if it could get any more empty than this. The author also resets everything every time the MC "screws up" and does something in front of others that would make them realize his powers, he just erases the memories of all witnesseses, so probably nothing will really change in the future and I can assume that it's going to be really repetitive down the line.

Usually an author would know how to write comedy and a consistent story where things are following the rules of the world as it's depicted by the author, but this author just completely ignores it all and turns every character into unbelievable and twisted pieces of sh*t. No, random idiotic sh*t happening doesn't mean it's funny, you have to actually have a decent sense of humor and know how to write things in a somewhat believable fashion to make it funny.

We're no longer five year olds laughing at people saying "fart" and "poop", it needs to at least be set-up in a proper and clever way to give us a reason as to why it's hilarious. Really, an inexperienced or foolish person might not need things to make sense, but normal people who've read their fair share wouldn't laugh at something unless it makes sense just because the situation is ridiculous and out of place/unusual, it needs to actually be believable to some extent.

Would I recommend this? No. I even gave it an 1/5. I usually at least give novels a 2/5 because they're rarely bad to the point of being unreadable, but this novel failed at the sole thing it was supposed to and badly at that. This is an extremely inferior version of saiki kusuo no psi nan, if you want a novel of this style, just read the original this author ripped all his basic settings from before twisting it into something unreadable and weird. Haaaaah... Do yourself a favor and never read this. It's an utter waste of time. I'm just hoping that I saved you some time with this review. At least reading these few paragraphs wastes far less time than reading 10-20 novel chapters before deciding that it was sh*t. But if you're new to novels or enjoy things that makes no sense whatsoever even if you stretch your imagination, being utterly illogical, then you might like this. <<less

The problem with this story is that you have an OP character, in a similar fashion to someone like Saitama from One-punch man, except that this overpowered character is too "excellent" in all areas. Unlike Saitama who can only rely on his fist as his strength, this MC can do everything from one punch to reading minds and erasing memories at will. This is problematic as it doesn't lead to comedic situations or creative situations where they have to work around an issue. Rather, it becomes episodic as he completes... more>> his tasks with his complete encyclopedia of powers such as erasing the mind of the girl he saves.

Truly, there is no challenge or need for him to keep everything secretive when he can read their minds and memories as well as erase/replace their memories. There is a lack of continuity. There is a lack of creativity. There is some comedy, but it is overshadowed by the fact that he can do absolutely anything he wants with impunity.

Reading this novel was pure TORTURE, I don't know what got into me, but I compiled the epub and decided that I might as well force myself to read it. Boy, I was wrong; the plot is f*cking pointless because the MC is anti-social through and through. The MC is made into a god that can't control his powers and is "forced" to live with mortals, and as you'd expect he complains about how a breath would kill this and that for as long as I have read this pile... more>> of shyte.

I personally would rather go to a church, listen to a f*cking pastor preach rather than read this novel, and I might as well add that I am an atheist. Insufferable and I wish no other soul to bleach their eyes with this nonsense. <<less

if you like siaki kusou, than you are going to love this! It is the cultivation version of saiki kusou complete with the the super hot blooded teen, the really pretty girl, the guy who looks like a tough guy and can have his mind read!

I love saiki kusou, so of course I like this novel as well. I like how it is based around cultivation, since I love cultivation novels. It’s taking the saiki kusou that I love and the cultivation style that I love and puts them together... more>> creating something awesome! <<less

This is a blatant, shameless rip-off of the anime *Saiki Kusuo*. The very same plot down to the tiniest detail:

- s*upidly powerful MC that tries to live his life unnoticed and ordinary (and fails at it)
- idiotic funny parents
- older brother that is the biggest genius in the world and his one-sided rivalry against the Main Character
- MC can't control his powers and because of that he is almost like a vegetable and avoids all contact with others
- the older brother is making him a... more>> device to keep his power in check (in this case talismans)
- the incredibly beautiful and popular girl that tries to make the MC fall in love with her
- MC has a big weakness to his favourite snack and would do anything for it

The only difference is the xianxia elements, the cultivation. Other than that it's absolutely a complete copy+paste of Saiki Kusuo.

Seriously, some Chinese writers are completely shameless! <<less

Couldn't be bothered to keep reading this. As others have mentioned it's just a knock off Saiki Kusuo no psi nan. But it's also worse in every way so I would suggest to read the original if you haven't.

Unlike the original which was a gag manga that parodied all the cliche power fantasy manga's this story is just another power fantasy. The author also tried changing the setting of the story, now the MCs abilities aren't impossible, just insanely strong. But they kept the same story which causes a lot... more>> of obvious plotholes. <<less

95% inner thoughts of the MC and descriptive story progression. 5% interaction and dialogue with other characters.

I really don't like this writing style. It feels dead to me, because of the lack of interaction.

Also, the comedy is kind of weird. I know the gags are supposed to be funny, but I can't laugh at them. It is enough for you to know it is funny, but it never reaches threshold of beeing a good laugh.

I have a few things to say about this wonderful novel.

To start off, it's really good, and as many people say, it's very similar to a popular anime named "Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan".

They're both rich in the comedy aspect and the fact that the MC's way too overpowered. However, unlike the anime, this novel has more content and detailed, longer adventures. We get to go on a roller coaster ride with the MC while viewing how things are from everyone's perspective.

Even the most "serious" situations turn out to take a... more>> big twist and always manage to make me burst out laughing!

If you saw on my profile page, I'm addicted to anything that has to do with BL. And this novel has many mentions of "gay" jokes which brings out my secret fujoshi side. So for those who like that, there's a lot of fanservice in there.

The flow throughout the entire novel was very consistent and everything links together perfectly, nothing is too choppy, out of place, or all of a sudden. We can see that it's pretty well planned out and that our author-san is working hard to write more chapters.

There are a lot of references to my favorite novels when they are naming the techniques of their moves, sword and even when they're just making a joke about something!

After all that (and there's honestly even more, but I'm too lazy to write more), I definitely give this novel my 5 stars! <<less

A parody and Cultivation Chinese Version of Saiki Kousou no Psi Nan.

For me MC is weaker than Saiki.

The story atleast has a flow and I can sense some little to none PLOT unlike Saiki which is like a Gag Show full of humor.- But I AM NOT saying to focus more on comedy.

The story itself is good for a light read.

Recommend it for those seeking a light read who also like Saiki.

Read thirteen chapters, and this seems to be a chinese knock off on Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, down to the fact that the MC never speaks and his parents are idiots. Past that, the comedy is not even funny. I'm only thirteen chapters in and I've yet to be amused. Usually the early chapters tend to have the best material, I can't imagine it gets better from here on out.

When I first read this I through 'it's the same to that anime' till I read this chapter by chapter to the road of no return. It's worth it (for me) it's not really the same. They are far more from that.

The MC just far to better (for me). MC power and that anime different. The MC needed to control 10 universe power at the same time. It's not a joke.

From the very beginning when I reading this, maybe around chapter 200 or something. I just thinking to give up... more>> since it's a waste of time. There no romance, too much characters point of view. Well, you know what happened next. I just stop and read other novel and then...

I read it again. It's funny right? I just don't know what got into me to continue reading this till next time I knew... Every night waiting for new updates in mtl.

Feel proud, I never regret this. It's not perfect like other novel or it's same that anime. I just don't care now. I just changed my view for this novel. I can just read it in free time. That's all.


Wang Ying have overpower to the point that he cannot control and need to seal his power together with his emotions. So let's say that he had a death fish eye. From the start he always stay low-key to avoid trouble.

He managed this behaviour until his life changed (high school). He meet a lot of friends, enemies, two pet so far and he even have a students. He have a shadow name Wang Ying that have a very different personality, like ying and yang.

Sun Rong the FL and her shadow Yang'er. The romance between them where very complicated because of the MC uncontrolled power. (If I remember the romance begin in chapter 1300 or something. It's really slow-romance like the tag said)

The one of the reason that I cannot let got of this novel is because of the Wang Ying past. I only know that even Gods (I don't know what kind of god their are) is scared of him for unknown reason. And to that Legendary Surname Wang. I just wondering if he able to remember or see his past self what will be happened? Will he changed?

And before I forgot he will be soon to be big brother.

Cute change of pace characters. Calling it episodic plots ain’t wrong. It’s great how the plot gets fulfilled quickly. As compared to some other feel good novels with their 50 chapters of foreshadowing followed by 40 chapters of side character’s reactions alongside 100 chapters of people being mean to the MC and 1 chapter of the MC doing something. Hope I’m not alone in enjoying a cute feel good novel without needing to read about face slapping a one dimensional cannon fodder.

This is honestly one of my favorite stories. I literally just made an account to write a review for this because I feel like it has so many undeserved criticisms. It is set in a cultivation world and has a great plot, world building and is super entertaining. The story is not supposed to be super serious or psychological, the words "Daily Life" is literally in the title, which should let you know that this is more of a slice of life story. It's slow paced with lots of little... more>> yet interesting arcs, which are all, in my opinion, really good and well developed.

One of the greatest criticisms of this story is how similar it is to Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan. I read it before this story and in the beginning I also thought it was similar, but that soon changed. While I agree that they have similar points, such as an overpowered main character wanting an average life and similar side character archetypes, that's it. The character's personalities, goals, likes and dislikes in both books are so different from each other. The plot is extremely different too. In my opinion, the plot of this story is much more complex than Saiki's because while Saiki's is more focused on his school life, the focus of this story is more widespread. In addition, while Saiki's friends are mostly those from his class or school, more than half of Wang Ling's (the MC of this story) friends aren't related to his school at all.

Another criticism is how Wang Ling has "no personality" and is anti-social. He literally wants an average life and can't fully control his powers, do you think he would actively try and make more friends to expose himself? The more you read, the more you will understand just how overpowered he is compared to the rest of the world, as well as how much his lack of control on his powers can affect him. If someone is actively trying to befriend him he would obviously find it annoying or troublesome. In addition, he is quite gentle and has a strict moral code. Wang Ling isn't going to be exposed any time soon, and most of the people who does know of his power are either villains (most of which died), and his non-school cultivation friends. Wang Ling is also not a super smart genius which plans miles ahead, he is literally just a normal teenager but with a lot of power. If you're looking for a op main character where he flaunts his abilities and build millions of friends, go read isekais or something, because this is NOT for you.

A lot of people also talk about the comedy factor is this novel. I did find Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan to be funnier than this novel, but to me this novel is quite amusing too. While you might not be full out laughing, every chapter is able to bring a smile to my face, which not a lot of novels are able to do. There are also a lot of references to other novels, games and anime which I really liked. If you truly don't like the humor then I have nothing to say, but read the story with an open mind and not "Chinese Saiki!"

Next is plot holes. A lot of the comments talk about the big amount of plot holes there is but honestly there isn't that much. I can't think of any plot hole right now, but while there should be some, they were probably really minor. One of the ones I see a lot of people talk about is how he can erase people memories. Yeah I agree if it is used too much it basically ruins the story but he hardly ever uses it. Wang Ling doesn't really act or directly solve problems himself, unless the situation really requires it, which allows each arc to be well developed. Another one is how he has a power which can make people forget him after meeting him, but no one seems to be forgetting him. A lot of people did forget him, but the first 20 or so chapters are introducing some of the main side characters. Plus, those side characters are literally in his class. While Wang Ling isn't super smart, he isn't dumb either. Do you not see an issue with forgetting everything about your classmate who you go to school with almost everyday. A lot of these so called "plot holes" can literally be fixed with common sense.

Also, this story is written in the perspective of a lot of different characters, which can be irritating for some. I didn't like that at first and actually stopped reading this story because of it, but went back and re-read the whole thing, and I'm really glad that I did.

Anyways, I REALLY recommend this story and if you are wondering if you should read this story or not, I'd say give it a try. There's a reason why most of the bad comments stop at around chapter 20 while the 4 or 5 star comments are all at much higher chapters. Again, DO NOT come into the story thinking about a Chinese Saiki. Just no, stop it. There was one comment that kept talking about "fusing Japanese and Chinese types" or "it has all the bad parts of a Chinese novel and worst parts of a Japanese novel." Like I respect your opinion, I really do, but this is a pure Chinese novel. What Japan? There is no Japan. The only way this can be related to Japan is through saiki and this is not Saiki part 2 Chinese edition. <<less

It has lots of humor and references to other novel works, anime, historical and cultural events.


Even Pokémon is included


For me, it's a refreshing/ light hearted novel. It's my daily dose of silly moments. You won't find tragic deaths, revenge or any other hard feeling. Only a silly MC who is OP.

I sear it's a different novel once you overcome the first arc. You won't regret reading it.

Everything felt force, even his love life was forced for him. MC is such a disappointment. Its like his opinions doesn't matter and since he is so OP people will try to constantly get in his way for no reason at all.

Then when he has to kill someone for crossing the line, his sentiment gets him.

First of all, for the people saying that it's just a rip off of saki k, sorry to break it for you but I never once thought it was similar. Like all the characters in the novel say, Wang Ling is a mensao, has an interesting personality and is way more emotional and invested than saiki. This novel is super underrated and I would definitely recommend if you want a little bit of action and fun relationships

The only thing I'd like to change is the romance

A lot of people say that its just a nock off but personally I like this very much just because I like it in general. Why? Who doesn't like a story about an op character that faces life problems of their own.

Its a fun story to read although there have been lots of cliffhangers its still a fun and lovely read

This novel seems entirely based upon the premise of Disastrous life of Saiki K/Saiki Kusuo no psi nan. But instead of the protagonist being super esper here it is super cultivator. Even the characters seem to be ripped off directly with same core character traits. Basically if you want to read Chinese version of Disastrous life of Saiki K/Saiki Kusuo no psi nan. Basically Chinese take on the whole thing.

At best, I'd say some parts of this are kind of funny. A modernized world with cultivators out in the open, with products and advertisements, like spirit swords made by Nike -- I thought that was a pretty fresh take. But I wasn't able to feel much enthusiasm for "The Daily Life of the Immortal King".

For a comedy series, several chapters seemed more like uninteresting filler, without really landing any good gags. Like the character Lotus Sun giving a school speech. I saw many comments stating that it was very... more>> derivative of the manga "Saiki Kasuo no Ψ Nan", so I went to look that up for myself, and I have to agree. But in comparison, it's far less punchy -- there was never anything that made me seriously crack up in what I read of this webnovel, but in Saiki Kusuo I had a real proper laugh in just the second chapter. The manga of course benefits from being able to do visual gags, but it undeniably comes off better in a direct comparison.

You may not want to read a gag manga though. Personally, I prefer to read something with an ongoing storyline, so I tend to get tired of the disconnected chapters of a gag manga before long. But this webnovel seems even less suited to running storylines. Of course, there are many series these days featuring overpowered characters, and the good ones have all sorts of good ideas to compensate for that lack of narrative tension. I didn't see that here, except for a plot point taken from One-Punch Man. And giving the protagonist the ability to modify people's memories? I don't like it -- it keeps the plot from ever moving away from the status quo. In other words, it keeps the story from getting more interesting.

Wang Ling also just doesn't have much personality. He can be summed up with "everything is troublesome and I just want to stay low-key." This can work for a straight-man to a bunch of crazy supporting characters and wild events, but that lack of enthusiasm otherwise tends to be infectious to the people reading it. It isn't even very consistent -- he puts himself at the center of attention "just to move things along", and, sure, that will move things along -- in the direction that is least aligned with his stated goals in life.

It seems a little inconsistent on some of the finer details of the world, too, though I suspect some of this is on the translator's part. I assume "Star City" and "Songhai City" are the same place, but I have no idea. There were also blank footnotes on foreign-language terms that the translator apparently forgot to go back and fill in. So while it's in readable English, I wouldn't say this one is translated with the diligence I prefer to see. Although in this case, the series probably doesn't deserve much better. <<less
