BEWARE as of chapters 466 it's all machine translated so please bear in mind for slight headache.

story wise it's pretty interesting for xianxia genre, there's a comedy, little bit naughty moment and romance
all in all it's a generic xianxia novel with usual plot and setting but still there's it's own charm to make it an interesting read.

well until it got machine translated tho, at least if they edit it with previous translator quality then it's fine, but I think they just want to churn up a steady chapters with... more>> no regards to quality. <<less

First half of the novel is really good. Around the 1.5k chapter mark MC suddenly becomes a monk and barely accepts an new harem members even though in the first half he was collecting them like he was collecting pokemon cards. Some of the missed female leads were actually very good and I wished MC just added them into him already massive harem as what more can one do if you already have over 30. The ending was ok not good but not bad and overall the novel is solid... more>> and I very much enjoyed reading it even if the last 1k chapters were a grind to get through a solid 4/5 for first 1.5k chapters and 3.5/5 for 1.5k+. <<less

This is a light-hearted novel read. To be honest, you can even put slice of life. The most entertaining part would be dan making (even more than fighting).

There are not many goal for MC other doing dan and cultivations. There will be no central objectives such as "Slay the demons" or "Go against fate" or "Save the dying world". Rather, MC will find out new threat over the course, while his goal is to just get powerup. His crisis is usually in form of being stuck in different world and... more>> trying to get back. That's where his adventure comes from

And yes, there are many many worlds. The common recurring story is after he've been to a new world, he'd be back to revisit the girls THEN go to newer world for a new mission.

Honestly, romance is pretty normal. I'd say 3/5. There will be a lot of forgotten women and a lot of shorten conversation. However, everybody are fine and there never been that big threat on their lives. They all act in-love when around MC, so I could say that it's pretty one-dimensional.

Ending is honestly a rushed one. However, the lifespan of the novel is already prolonged to the point where rushed ending isn't an "axed" ending (you don't feel unsatisfied when there's nothing to be satisfied). The author had tried to add arcs after arcs to the point where you hope it ended earlier.

This is a light read for me. If you don't expect anything much other than casual CN faceslap, dan making, lovey-dovey girls, etc. Then it won't be any problem. <<less

A light read with MC doing everything for himself and his women.

Just like the description, this novel isn't deep, with classic plot, however it's well written. With a focus on MC alchemy skills, his marital arts path, and his women, so far.



It seems this one and AST are in competition to see who can have the most wives, since it's only 375 chapters and it's already 3 women confirmed, with 4 others almost.

This is a very generic story that tends to spend the entire time either glorifying how badass our protagonist is or crafting a really cliche romcom scene. It's basically an entire book of that. And our MC quite literally finds a new woman wherever he goes. Having said all of this, if you find these things enjoyable, it's not a bad read. And, while the relationships are all fairly one-dimensional, they are pretty amusing to read about, especially if you can manage to suffer through the first ~150 chapters (after... more>> that point, it focuses a lot more on their relationships). This novel is just barely good enough to bother reading, but I did bother to keep reading it, albeit slowly. Regardless, I wouldn't take this novel too seriously. <<less

No need to explain it further, the first part of the official description says it best. MC gets everything, no one else matters. Perfect narcissistic fantasy. And in that vein, it's a good story; without sarcasm, I recommend it.

I just can't seem to like it anymore.

The story is generic xianxia, nothing new but still it can be good to past time. I just dropped it though because lately he had a pet which is hidden and keep on saying embarrassing stuff with the same voice as him (like 'I want to sleep with you, I love your ass, you' ll be my woman). That's the 3-4th in a dozen chapters or so, so it seems the author is gonna use the pet as en excuse for MC to flirt with every girl he comes across.... more>> I became fed up with those bad harems made to satisfy the fantasy of 12yo boys. I can bear with it for good ones like TDG where the story is more complex than just making every beauty fall on mc's lap. The pet is a real kid, annoying and stuff so it killed my interest. <<less

While others may complain at the speed that the story progresses initially, personally, I find it rather enjoyable. To those that have issues with it, sorry, but not all of us enjoy reading 60 chapters discussing how the MC is powering up, and reaching the next level, or going over one concept over ten chapters that can basically be summed up in one sentence of "He understood something new, and so got a lot stronger". The story is definitely an enjoyable read, but be warned, the MC doesn't like taking... more>> shit, so he behaves like Chu Feng, and Yun Che, however, he isn't like Horny-Che, and knows how to keep it in his pants (He actually tries to be rather faithful to his first waifu at this point in the story). <<less

As of ch.60.

The story is about a MC without talent who had a fortuitous encounter with two injured beauties. Exchanging a contract, he saved their lives and gained the potential to be a powerful cultivator. Perhaps this is the main difference from other similar novels: instead of having an old foggie, the MC has two alluring and mysterious women as his mentors, teaching him in the ways of fighting arts and pill-making alchemy.

Other than that, the story has the familiar cycles of offend-and-revenge, as the down-trodden MC powers up at... more>> light speed. He demolishes those in his way, either in the field of martial arts or in alchemy. The despicable opponents are killed, resulting in escalation as older people and bigger factions are drawn in. He also collects the interest and affections of various women. In between the duels, ambushes, pill-making and martial training, we have functional lines of dialogue as feuds and flirting with said women abound. The pace of the story moves along quickly (too quickly for some) but this ensures that something is always happening in every chapter. It reminds me of Dragon-Marked War God which also retreads the familiar tropes at a fast pace with a MC who isn't afraid of using his strength decisively. Decent, even though it doesn’t really offer anything new. <<less

Reviewed at 46 chapters, rated 3.

The pace was choppy, the author also got some problem with consistency, and there were repetitive rout all over. Also, the power-up and world build was too fast and too brief. Usually, I prefer faster pace, but in this novel, I think the story could benefit from more details, narrative, and side development. The acute lack of them led to under-developed characters and plot. Consequently, reading World-Defying Dan God became like watching a movie in fast-forward; there’s little essence that can be savored, although we... more>> can say that we have seen it all.

On the plus side... well, it’s not that I hate the novel, but even after thinking for a while, I couldn’t tell what it is! However, it has the mysterious something that made wuxia/xianxia/xuanhuan irresistible and addictive for some people. So, if you are a fan of this genre, you’ll probably like this. As for me, I don’t know if I’ll continue or drop it, so this review might not be revised in the future. <<less

This has been my favorite WN for a long time. A great story with a MC who is not stupid and really OP.

I really enjoyed this novel. I loved it so much that even after reading 3800+ chapters, I didn't want it to end.

It has its pros and its cons like all other novels.

This is the novel with the worst translation I ever read, starting from chapter 500something onwards. It resulted in many hilarious translations errors that I enjoyed. Plus, it took me much longer then normal to read it.

The site they translated from had such wierd censorship that even the kissing scenes were cut, but there was no problem writing all... more>> sorts of vulgar curses. *Sigh* So many romantic scenes were left untold.

One dimensional villians will always appear in these kind of novels and l skipped quite a few boring paragraphs when the villians were rambling.

I started the novel when I read a comment saying fights were quick, but I don't agree. It's just they weren't dragged out and written very well. I loved all the fights, except the last one.

Quite a few little plot holes that don't really affect the story, but just bring down the power of MC to keep it balanced. If his powers weren't toned down than he would been too overpowered, and the story will end quicker so I don't really mind.

I went with the thinking that I will skip the pill refining and cultivation paragraphs and enjoy the fights and comedy and romance. However, I only skipped rarely, because I liked the pill refining alot. Both cultivation and pill refining were quite interesting until the end.

The MC has a lot of women and instead of thinking he has too many, I end up feeling he didn't eat the tofu of a lot of women he could. This happened specially after him leaving the divine wasteland/desolation, (lol whatever the name is,) to go that world with the divine soil.

Comedy was great, fights great, alchemy great, lots of romance and so many chapters. Really my type of novel.

Bdw the ending was rushed. As, just when I was expecting a few hundred chapters more, It suddenly ended in a couple of chapters. Except for feeling a little regret that it ended, I have no complaints.

Wait, I have one, the mystery of his crimson dragon's and his relation wasn't explained properly. <<less

It's Bad, just bad.

  1. The two girl can even sit down, means they not to exhausted.
  2. If they can sit, means they can take a clothes from their ring.
  3. One of them thought him "Yin yang or taichi shit" how come a dark element teach a tai chi which consist of white and black element.

It’s a pleasure to read a story in which the protagonist is not subject to fits of idiocy and instead behaves sensibly, shrewdly, and according to a system of ethics that is not the usual psychopathic ‘might makes right’ nonsense.

The translation and editing, while not perfect, are satisfactory and do not detract from the story.

Basically everything alenotbeer said in his review, and to add on that later on logic and math bend to fit the MC's endeavors. I initially wanted to give it a 1/5 score after I finished it (since I was triggered by how much time I spent reading this), but later on when I calmed down I decided against it. The novel did keep me reading it for 3.8k chapters and the only redeemable points it had (for me) were the huge amount of realms it had (i love introductions to... more>> new worlds / cultivation levels, etc... Which is basically the only thing that kept me going) and a decent romance in the first quarter of the story. <<less

The first half of the story before he breaks the law of time (don't worry not a huge spoiler) is great! You have a nice harem, unique in the detail of the profession, good character development. Good balance of having friends and foes (not some of the literally MC vs the world). 4-5 stars

In the reset word after he breaks the law of time... the pace of the story speeds up significantly. He obtains things that are made out to be great and powerful... then the author seems to forget them and 20 chapters later he's already broken through a dozen times and it will never be any use. Author spends many chapters referencing an enemy, MC is super worried they will either capture his girls or enslave him... when they finally show up he just snorts at and ignores them because they are so weak and they never meet that character again. None of the girls (I think literally 0) after that event become romantic, he does however go back and hastily clean up all of the ones that he flirted with but never did anything... sometimes 4 at a time. 2-3 stars

The novel is not bad. It is sort like Against the God with your typical OP wuxia MC but without the reincarnation aspect which is sort is a let down for this novel. Many author tend to confuse will power with craftiness, the MC goes through great hardship at the beginning but for the rest of the story he has will power and all of the sudden becomes crafty, which doesnt make sense many times. Craftiness is gain through experience and interaction with people, thats why old aged character are... more>> considered crafty. But the MC all of the sudden learns to be crafty without a shred of innocence and he can trick those who are over a hundred years old.

It usually wouldnt be a problem for the novel if the most, if all, of the MC interaction with other character was not based of his craftiness.

A good part of the novel is that it explains dan making interestingly, different from other novels. <<less
