I have to agree that this novel should be called the gate of misfortune. The MC gets f*cked every time by another person. So far up to c100
... more>>

MC has meet 5 girls and each and every one got separated and then the girls get owned like this:

girl 1 was a fkng idiot that believed the MC to be a bad guy and broke up the relationship with him leading to his death (first chapter).

girl 2 was forcefuly separated from MC and then sold as an slave.

girl 3 was forcully separated from MC to attend a sect academy no info about her situation.

girl 4 was NTR and has s*x with another dude that meet MC and were forcefully separated, cant save her.

girl 5 a prostitute that was later bought as an slave to save her by MC and was forcefully separated again.

And this is only counting the girls situation and not the fu***ked up things that happens to MC. Basically each city, village, country that the MC, someone is coming to kill him and he can only escape.

One of the most annoying, and stupid stories I've ever read for raws.

In terms of writing and back ground it's good. But the second you get to the story and the characters, it makes you wanna A) Punch the MC in the face for being a pu**y, and stupid B) Punch the author for making random ass tragic moments that come out of no where, only because the author can't seem to transition from one arc to the next without the MC either failing, running away, or getting scammed.

Ok so I tried, I tried really hard to continue this Novel but it's like the author is trying his best to make it f**ked up. ... more>>

Hoping to find hope in spoilers I was rapidly disappointed as I discovered that It only gets worse whether it is the sense of the series, the ending or the romance.
I can't decently recommend it especially because I don't like series where the MC gets it hard for no reason and everything ply against him permanently just for the sake of making him suffer. I just don't get it. If you want to see someone struggling just look around, there is just enough suffering in this world already.
It may be harsh but this series really makes me feel bad.

As long as you can get past the author's hard on for f**king over the MC, the story is both addictive and enjoyable. The MC is cautious to a fault from a reader's perspective. And also smart. The power progression is well done and not reliant on gimmicks like Against the Gods and Tales of Demons and Gods. The story maintained my interest throughout all the chapters I have read; it is far more consistent in quality compared many other cultivation style stories.

It is very good for what is.

Has all the fun tropes so far. We got mystical overpowered thing that lets the MC cultivate way faster then everyone else, an MC who can learn secondary professions like forging/pill making at ungodly speeds, dire need of insane amounts of currency that just keeps getting ridiculously higher, the most beautiful women ever seen which are progressively outclassed by a new one every 20 chapters, being constantly underestimated even though time and time again has proven that the MC is super strong, bullsh*t... more>> s*xual related misunderstandings that almost lead to the MCs death, arrogant geniuses being crushed over and over, and an MC who seems to be the only person in the world offended by injustice.

While the novel brings nothing particularly new, it does the old stuff really well. If you like these types of stories then I'm sure you will enjoy it, just don't come into it expecting anything hot and fresh.

Solid 3.5/5. Would be a 4 but the MC just seems to jump around from place to place only managing to find the next plot hook by pure "Good Fortune". <<less

Honestly wanted to like this story, the characters are well built and are interesting. But the progression of the story is hard to relate to, it's painful to keep continuing knowing that something sh*tty is going to happen next and the cause is really bullsh*t. Arcs end at timings that feel random and the way it shifts from arc to arc is even worse.

I also still think that the title is incorrect but that is my personal opinion.

Extremely underrated. I don't understand how this can have such a low rating compared to a lot of the popular generic xianxia/xuanhuan.

A very moral MC who gets transported to another world, who tries to get stronger so that he can go back. Yes, bad things happen to the MC, but he does not become some savage psychopath because of it unlike most xianxia novels. He is simply an honest and upright guy from humble origins who works hard. He has the general OP item that helps him advance, like every... more>> other novel. What he does not have is a tremendous amount of luck and plot armor, which apparently causes poor reviews... The MC gets screwed over quite a bit in the early parts of the novel, but it is not a tragedy as it does not affect the MC's character in a negative way, and he keeps on moving forward. That isn't to say he doesn't get his revenge, but that he is not a vicious sociopath like most MCs.

There are times where you need to skim a bit, but it is still far less than the vast majority of 4.0+ rated xianxia/xuanhuan.

A solid 4/4. This is far and above average xianxia like TMW, ATG etc etc. <<less

First time writing a review because this novel deserves better. Decent story with less annoying tropes commonly found in stories like MGA, PMG etc. I disagree with Trejon on two points. 1) There's no more misfortune in it as compared to other xianxia. (typical rags to riches story). In every xianxia theres always someone after the MC... or there's no point of cultivating lul. 2) The girls he mentions aren't even love interests so I don't understand whats the problem, they're just people he meets.

I've read most of what's been translated and it's been a good read. I think the novel could have been even better if the cultivation system was a bit more fleshed out. The 10x9 system seems a bit lazy and 'un-mystical.' Also, I feel that the author is a little too hard on MC-kun, especially when it comes to women, to the point where I'm starting to believe that the author had many, many terrible experiences with women.

Overall, it's a story about a modern man trying to fight his way... more>> out of a grim, despairing situation. If all you want is a sappy action-blockbuster where MC blows up sects and takes every pretty girl as his waifu, all of whom are heaven-defyingly beautiful and righteous and think of nothing else but the protagonist 24/7, then you probably won't enjoy this novel.

I personally enjoy the gritty atmosphere that the story brings. The MC is a real scrapper, despite him being a very 'normal' protagonist, you can really feel the courage and potential he has inside of him. I can appreciate that in a novel. <<less

This novel is criminally underrated. The real reason this novel is rated so poorly is because a large percentage of reviewers want instant satisfaction.

This MC does not have a cheat. This MC did not go to another world and suddenly forget right from wrong. This MC does not have a clan/family to support him. This MC knew nothing about cultivation (didn’t even read novels) and was dropped into a perilous situation where he could only rely on himself.

When it comes to the MC getting screwed over, all I have... more>> to say is that Ning Cheng constantly succeeds despite the odds. By chapter 335 he has more secrets on his body then even ancient ancestor level characters. These abilities/items were not obtained through lazy writing. Ning Cheng only has 2 things going for him; a photographic memory and a mysterious yellow bead that allows him to cultivate.

Neither of the MCs abilities would have ensured success. This MC has had to actually work to become strong.. And it is much more satisfying to read then these critical reviewers claim it is.

Read the novel, don’t expect Ning Cheng to be Chu Feng/etc. The MC obviously kills people but he isn’t a madman who will murder an entire family because of an evil son/daughter <<less

Very entertaining story. It’s somewhat repetitive but it’s not done in a terrible way. The story is internally consistent but that internal consistency doesn’t often make sense to me. For example I’m not sure why lower ranking schools are so eager to send away talented students to better schools. Anyway the story is a good waste of time without anything terrible happening to ruin it. So basically one of my favorite stories on the site.

I don't have any problems with the MC being unreasonably unlucky because he's also unreasonably lucky... more>> at the same time. Might as well have it both ways. Besides if you have bad luck, flee into a cave, and find treasure then can that even be called bad luck? That's basically just the same kind of thing most MCs go through.

I'm not aware of any girl being take from the MC and sold as a slave. The NTR girl is a girl who had s*x before even meeting the MC and was just his friend. My advice would be to not consider random side characters as romantic interest if you want to enjoy the story. <<less

The Author should go write romance novels, I feel he had an edge for it (purely based on opening chapters – ch33) other than that, he cannot make a solid connecting plot and his fight scenes are really bad.

I mean the novels has good elements but they don’t connect and the arcs just don’t have that beginning and closing an arc should have since nothing is being resolved most of the time. There is also no bigger plot to look forward to at all, it’s really just bland. The one... more>> thing the author did really bad was putting a thick explanation paragraph between conversations and pretty much anything else. It's lacking other novels but it's just too much here.


Also for those who need clarification, the MC doesn't comprehend stuff, he has this bead that comprehends and improves stuff for him and that's just the tip of the iceberg of it's abilities. It pretty much allows him to learn anything, one time, after he had only seen a guy dodge his attack with a skill once, the bead fed the info to him when he was in trouble and just like that he could also do it. The most ridiculous plot armor it had was when the author put in this ghost character who only served the purpose of giving the MC the best info jade scrolls of almost all the fields the MC is to be part of, truly laughable.


***2/5 is the best I can give this*** <<less

There are a lot of things in this novel that are similar to other novels of the same genre. But one thing that has been unique so far (15 chapters) are the characters. Our main character even though he is the generic op MC, what makes him unique is who the person that the mc’s soul had been transfered to, use to be (the original owner of the body his character and personality). The other major character is the MC is fiancee she has a unique character which makes her... more>> different from the other females in other novels that I have read. So far she is my favourite character in the novel.

In conclusion, even though this novel only has 15 chapters translated so far, I still recommend to start reading it. ps. I like to mention in this in all the reviews I write, I am writing this review when the translation is at c15. So if anything major happens in the later volumes that drastically changes the novel (could be bad or good), I will update this review. <<less

Standard OP MC, but I really like this version of that. Read spoiler for more info if curious.


MC is gifted with photographic memory and an ability to understand & comprehend.


I like his personality and how he thinks. Although I haven't read much chapters atm, I'm confident in saying I'll enjoy this novel. Looking forward to reading more. Definitely worth the read.

story was interesting and good few 50 or so chapters. Pass that is just forceful

female chars come and go without resolution
the nun
... more>>

mc's female nun friend was taken away to be a powerful sect's disciple and the elder tried to kill MC cuz she thinks MC is a burden to the nun. After MC gets power and pays back to this elder who tries to kill him, he NEVER met up with the nun. He fking remembers about the elder trying to kill him, but in a few chapters he forgot his nun waifu


the fiance

he met up with her again. Fking leaves her to go xian xia travelling. Rest is all that typical xian xia cool battle stuff. It is interesting and fun, but wat about the waifu that u spent every other chapter reminiscing and how she is only 1 who treats u nicely?


for someone with photographic memory, the MC sure have trouble remembering any of the female lead <<less

This was way better than some comments made me think it was. I recommend it, it's a really good story.


  • Good natured MC, retaining his Earth morality and not becoming a psycho.
  • He actually has a goal, and do everything to attain it, way better than nonsensical power ups for nothing.
  • Many characters are kept all along the story, instead of being thrown out after a chapter or so.
  • Long fulfilling chapters.
  • The romance is cute.
  • The harem is not badly done, as all the girls have their own goals and things to pursue in life. It's not overbearing, and that's a good thing.
  • Latter parts actually surprised me.
  • Friends exist, not everyone is a crazy sociopath.

  • Dude has too much coincidences going on.
  • Some classic style dumb characters unable to contain their evilness.
  • Sometime some concept are badly explained.
  • Would have been better with some more chapters not about the MC.
  • The overuse of vague duration expressions is annoying.

So far it's been exceptional, I have no idea why it's rated so low. Also, why the Harem tag?

There's never a lot of focus on any of the side characters, whether they be guys or girls. The MC is pretty much a party of one that runs into/makes occasional friends. There are a lot of close calls and slow leveling up periods. Don't read for humor, romance, or for OP moments. It's just a decent story with a good plot, character development and an exceptional author/translator team. Probably closer to... more>> reality than any other wuxia novel that is here on novelupdates, although it still holds strong to it's fictional roots.

Most of the poor reviews seem to relate to the side characters, which are mostly there for a period in order to provide more depth to the story and then vanish. This is a very long story with no end in sight and things progress slowly but the story is well written and there is good character development (although a lot of them come and go).

I don't see why there is all the comments about romance and harem, there is only one girl with the MC. The others are just side characters who either fought against or with him for a period of time, there are no relationships established beyond that... There are girls who are rescued by him and others who seem to be seriously interested in the MC, however that just seems to be plot development and the MC treats them like normal friends/enemies or just ignores them. Most of those girls tend to be around for about 30 chapters or so until the MC moves to another area and then they are never heard of again. This also seems to apply to other side characters with the exception of a few close friends/enemies and the fiance as the MC keeps on the move to escape enemies and to continue his cultivation.

I have read a lot of worse novel before and ones that even irritate me so much that I wanted to smash my laptop. Some were badly written by underage kids that don't know how to properly set a setting or some that clearly is suffering from chuunibyou.

This one is not like them. But is way worse! Clearly the author just got tired of it and ended it in the worse crazy and idiotic way possible. It has such good potential in the beginning. Nice setting and good backstory. Even... more>> the drama is nice. Then the author just decided to smash everything apart and throw everything into the trash can. The ending was the worse open ending ever and the way how he just forget about characters after giving them a backstory just irritate you. A author that know how to set a setting but clearly doesn't know how to continue it and make it interesting. MC jump from one unsolved incident to the next. And let not start about the villains. Author spend massive chapters to gather hatred toward them and in the end somehow the MC always has to work together with them to solve something and somehow the grudge just disappear. After slaughtering massive amount of innocent and hunting down MC, in the end just because MC can't beat them and they also can't beat MC it turn into cease fire. There is a lot of peace talk among MC and enemies which make zero sense. His personality really irritating. Don't know how to describe it but he just annoy you after seeing some of his actions. <<less

This novel is good, highly recommended this novel for those who wants a wise MC.. MC actually not OP he only has poor spiritual roots and the things that he only has advantage was the yellow bead, his luck due to meeting someone with things that is useful to him and his talent (photographic memory).

Looking for more chapters.. For now i'll rate it as 4.5
