True Martial World is a pretty decent novel, same with Martial World, it has tons of potential and complexity which is being explored throughout the novel. However, in my opinion, True Martial World is even more complex and diverse than Martial World is concerning cultivation, insights and the supernatural aspect of the novel (techniques, laws, treasures, bloodlines...)

Concerning Yi Yun, the main character, I found him pretty likable as he shows human emotions appropriate to most of situations, be they sympathy for the weak that are being trampled, love... more>> and caring for his close ones, rage and hate for the cruel people and those that harm his friends and allies. He was also almost never hypocritical, which is a big plus for me since I loathe those kind of MC's the most. The bad points for him (at least in my opinion) were his unnaturally fast transition from a modern-earth average teenager to a middle-ages world setup cultivator in a matter of days, and the fact he sometimes acts rashly to deal out bashing on arrogant side characters which gets him and his friends in trouble.

About cultivation, it was amazing. I like it very much when the xianxia and xuanhuan novels have a cultivating system which is diverse and every next stage is completely different than the last. It also has special stages in every realm which make warriors differ from each other which I find is much better than just going from 1st to 10th level and then repeat with only the realm name being changed.. As for the other stuff concerning cultivation (laws, techniques, special abilities, treasures, alchemy, bloodlines...) that is also very complex and interesting and you can see that author tries hard to develop it trough the story and it is still very relevant even in the latest releases.

The story overall is pretty good, most of the plot was pretty interesting, there were some cliche and boring arcs, but they weren't so bad as they are usually only a few chapters long and they get replaced with interesting story and world-exploring pretty soon so it keeps you interested most of the time. There were some bad plot points like repetitiveness of story, the fact that is from earth being nearly completely irrelevant and some inconsistencies, but since the story kept me interested all the way till the latest chapter I won't take those stereotypes to heart and rage for them being present in the novel. <<less

Would have given this a five star rating until I realised just how repetitive this story actually is.

The author seems to have an obsession with tournaments and the way the MC is constantly being ridiculed by those around him, can make reading unbearable some times.

There is character called 'Lin Xintong' that the author places heavy emphasis on for some reason.

... more>> At the beginning I understand that she is much stronger then the MC but 400 chapters in and she is still much stronger then the MC.

It depressing really, knowing the MC went through hell to build strength but somebody who has literally done nothing to get stronger and even has something wrong with her body is constantly one upping him.

You have to wonder why even bother trying to build strength, when you know the MC will never truly shine the brightest. <<less

Although this novel isn't interesting at the beginning, I like it because it's different from some other reincarnation novels. In this, the MC actually faces poverty and it isn't so that the MC is from a good family but is just hated. Also in most novels usually the person who reincarnated is an expert or an assassin that died but in this, it looks like the MC isn't someone who is an expert at fighting or has any particular knowledge in medicine.

The starting isn't too bad but at some parts,... more>> he author seems to drag some things on instead of getting to the main point. It is interesting but the story doesn't look like it has much depth but still, the author knows how to make people interested in it. <<less

1) Translation speed is very fast, to the point that its updated daily (so it can catch up to the raws)
2) The pacing of the story is incredibly fast (after the world building). It feels like as if the one is playing Chinese chess on a blitz mode, repetitively. Its a snowballing of events, one after another after another after another without much of a pace to slow down. The world building is simple, but makes a lasting image. Once you read through the front chapters, you'll get... more>> the gist of the current world that the story is in.
3) This is a sequel (not a direct sequel) to Martial World, if my memory serves me right. Shares the same elements, but nothing concretely related (as of translated chapters)
4) Translation quality is awesome.
5) If you enjoy Peerless Martial God's kind of "one after another" breakneck pacing, this is one you'll enjoy. <<less

The novel is slow pace in the way that you do feel the chapter sometimes drags on. There are times where nothing literally happens in the chapter other than explaining the environment. The story doesn’t glorify the MC as righteous. What is right and what is wrong, who is telling the truth or lies, etc. Is all determine by the strong.

The antagonist are not your boring villians that depends on their family, or are villians just for the sake of being villians. They are their own characters that have... more>> their own stories and their own dilemmas which they try to solve in their own way. Their dilemma isn’t that much different from the MC except they took the wrong/immoral path to try to attain their goals. It just so happen that the MC ends up being an obstacles in their way and so they try to deal with the MC.

I would give this novel a 4, but due to the constant redundancy, I deduct a point off. I don’t mind info dump like in Xian Ni, but this is ridiculous. If you want to enjoy this novel, be prepare to skip tons of paragraphs because it gets worse where a whole chapter is fill with just redundant info only. To me, the reliance on constant redundancy to fill up a chapter/word count shows a lack of skills. <<less

I don't think this story is particularly creative, but the lack of caricature villain authority figures is refreshing and it's a fun romp up until now. Since things are getting real we'll have to see how or if the story changes.

You need to take this series with a grain of salt, the MC is quiet and not arrogant just confident and willing to risk it all.

There are situations that he could definitely have handled better, but with his limited knowledge of the world and himself for that matter, he handles them quite well.

His artifact is a little OP, but they point out many times he is not a genius like some of these other people, and without this ‘purple card’ he would at best be considered average, and that’s because... more>> of his past life in the mortal world. He excels at perception, but that’s about the limit of his ‘natural’ ability. At least in the beginning.

The story also has a unique aspect to it, it’s more like an ancient civilization surrounded by beasts that usually just sh*t out the humans of this world.

The cultivation and skills involved are also written quite well, the author has a plethora of imagination, and so far it has been very beneficial to this novel.

All I can say is read the first 100-120 chapters before giving up on it, if you don’t like it by then, than chances are you won’t like it at all.

PS: I would give this a 3.5, but this site doesn't allow that. Because of how well this novel is written/translated it leans more towards a 4 star, so I gave it one. <<less

Its a very great series, mainly focusing on cultivation. Although there were some instances where the novel breaks the 3rd dimension and talk about other novels, I found this series really interesting from the 2nd chapter on wards. There were lots of instances where the MC would compare something from his past life, but compared to other novels that digress a lot, this was just the perfect amount. 5/5 or 9.5/10. I love the setting, story line, and the character. It made me feel like that feeling when you start... more>> watching One Piece and think of all the possible situation he could encounter. At one point I even daydreamed that he would open a restaurant for the rich people so he could gain some cultivation resources lol. I can tell that this would be epic. Its slow, but sweet. If you find it difficult to read certain comparisons to his old life, just skim through it, but in my opinion, it adds flavor to the novel.

Comparing to Coiling Dragon, this one might be better. Might be even the best cultivation novel I've read, its definitely in the top 5 maybe even top 3

Edit: Upon further reading, the series starts off great but you end up noticing irritating things throughout the novel. It becomes repetitive quite a bit. The MC or rather the story always moves before the situation settles... (ie. Living in the city gets interrupted by being drafted, tournament/school life being interrupted by massive attack of monsters, defending against monsters gets attacked by arrogant person, staying in the girl's clan gets interrupted by some inheritance "contest") You get the picture, before any definite conclusion (aside from the very first one) you get constant interruptions and constant changes to the environment with little to no resolutions. It is like giving your readers blue balls...

At some point around chapter 500, the author becomes quite fond of repeating what he just mentioned 1-3 chapters ago, which makes it feel reading it so slow and annoying. It is like the author slows down the progress and just adds recollection of the past constantly just to fill in the chapters. It was initially slow, but the constant changes in the situation made it feel quite irregular. <<less

The MC is decent but the story is very slow. The story also has an excessive amount of detail. One chapter began with 2 lines of dialogue and the rest was description that meant nothing so I’ve been reading most chapters like that by skipping dull, repetitive description until I found dialogue. It’s worth a read if you don’t mind it.

Modern world youngman got transfered to an unknown world full of martial artists (classic xianxia). An OP MC with violet card that can absorb world essences & improves ones martial art comprehension (classic). Very slow development with trivial details almost on every chapter (>.<) hope the MC isn't a vengeful like chu feng lol. At least he isnt a pervert.


major development will begin on chap 80ish haha
