This is just a quick review of mine.. From what I've read this has a lot of potential yet it also gives me a feeling that it will have a rushed ending or an open-ended ending..

First of all the the world is too big there are a lot of chapters mentioning MC travelling to some places which takes months of flying just to get there.

Also the author likes mentioning info dumps some are useful some are just plain annoying which sometimes takes a whole chapter just describing one thing. Which... more>> the author also likes comparing by mentioning from MC's past life or Earth culture.

Character developments are ok for me. Don't expect the original personalities from MC's second life as since the beginning the MC already change a lot of things at the start like for Yi Luo Xiang
Spoiler

It is mentioned that YLX is like a cold-beauty which hates men, well with MC being a hero-saves the day, though I can't blame it as her being too easy to fall in love (?) with MC, YLX's personality turned to be more like your regular uneasy wife character with all the mushy things they do.

[collapse]

Power rankings are explained kinda late so just think of it based on metals, ordinary person>bronze>silver>gold>crystal, amethyst, diamond, king, with 10 stages for each rank. IMO this is not really important at the beginning since it's hard to imagine the power difference for each rank due to the miniscule amount of action in the first 100 chapter.

The dragons here are not really dragons, I forgot which chapter it was but it was explained that most dragons are just like animals with dragon parts
Spoiler

there was a mention like pig-dragon, horse-dragon, insect-dragon, fish-dragon, snake-dragon, you can tell just from the name that you can just ignore the dragon part and based it entirely on what animal it is.

[collapse]

A downside of the story in the first 100 chapters is the MC's money making ability. Although it was acceptable until MC got his dragon after that is just plain over exaggeration IMO.
Spoiler

An eight year old kid, making profit ten times earning a hundred million, during the auction made from a 10K gold to a priceless treasure just by trading. With a lot of people seeing the transaction happen nobody even dares try to steal from an eight year old kid.

[collapse]

What I like about for now is how the MC with his 3rd chance makes most of best opportunities yet keeping all his base talents from before, so MC even though he got the best 9.9 dragon stone (?) with his mediocre cultivation talents his genius party members will keep up with him in power rankings or maybe they will get stronger than MC at the beginning.

So for now I'd give it a 4/5, I'll update after another 100 or more chapters. I just hope there will be less info dumps or useless comparison in MC's previous life, with the translation speed now a lot maybe frustrated as the chapters are short and for each chapter mostly a few things happening
Spoiler

It took 10 chapters just to get out of the well while the manhua took like 1 or 2?, you can see how slow the story is.

[collapse]

[edit]

from ch401 P.S. I will be using terms shown as mtled.

went downhill fast at around 190-200. MC keeps getting OP treasure and finally began cross-rank killing at late 300s.

Spoiler

school arc might have been too much for author since the MC started going to school the author keeps on finding excuses for MC to take leave of absence or find a way to make MC not attend school, yet at the beginning MC keeps telling how it is important to go to school. Also at the beginning the MC forbids using shortcuts in cultivation yet when they arrived at gold rank MC & co. Keeps using elixirs, etc. To increase their rank..

[collapse]

For me it was actually pretty good until around 190 but with the sudden 1 1/2 year time skip it was actually more like reading a report. I know it is to advance the age of the MC but IMO it wasn't done in a good way.

Also for the gang war
Spoiler

after the MC beat the 2nd year Chief it went further downhill, MC & co. Ultimately stopped going to school without much explanation just because they killed a diamond expert. Then during this arc MC found a way to revive people so fights are no longer as intense as even though anyone can die including MC they can always revive & hide at their base which could defend against 10000 diamond experts. Also MC finally began to exceed the 3 future Nine Masters in Cultivation which further made me lose interest as those 3 began to lose their personalities as they worship MC too much.

[collapse]

If author actually tried this 400 chapters can be compressed to 100-150 chapters, that is how much info dumps & useless comparisons are used just to make everything seem more amazing when it is actually just annoying. And the format of other chapters are more like history reports of what is happening which further becomes boring.

I will probably drop this until proper translation caught upto ch401 since IMO it would be a waste of time to actually read the rest of the novel in mtl since it is not worth it.

I'd give it a 2.5/5 or just 3 to round it up. <<less

The story itself had prospect. It's begining was great and all the side characters had cast time, is flushed out, and is as smart as the MC. The story itself has unique cultivation method which vastly differs from others.

But the mid part of the story is a wreck. The side characters are just dolls. The story deviates from cultivation to artifacts and weapons. The MC has ton loads of artifacts that he can oneshot people of five rank difference with him. And to make it worse he got a artifact... more>> to be eternal and immortal. It can even make his army in to immortal.

And as for the last part, the author just started to get annoyed with the novel.

No detail about what happened to the side characters after thousand years. <<less

I'm partly basing this review off the Manhua as the Web Novel only has 2 chapters translated. But from what I can tell this is an insteresting story with a lot of potential.

First of all this world seems to be centered around dragon summoning with said dragon being tied heavily into how these people cultivate like in every Chinese novel. While the cultivation itself seems relatively standard the integration of personal dragons adds an interesting twist.

The MC himself seems a bit stupid and careless but not to an unforgivable degree.... more>> His mistakes and careless moments at least feel human and aren't just him magically becoming stupid when the plot needs him to be.

Overall if I had to compare this series to something it would be Tales of Demons and Gods. The way the MC goes back in time and uses his past knowledge to not only strengthen himself but gather other's around him as well as how he attempts to correct the tragedies of his first time, all feels reminiscent of TDG. However this series also has the chance to be better as it's set up it's main couple a lot earlier rather than pointlessly dragging it out. Additionally unlike TDG which is slowly dying as the author all but abandons it this series is complete. <<less

Love the novel, all about dragons, just up my alley!

All the different types of dragons is just too cool, especially when the MC's circumstances are more realistic. When you're lazy and get transported into another world, and you suddenly becomes a god of death kind of character makes no sense. In this MC's case, he was just the same, but learned his lesson and given another chance.

Plus the MC is kinda funny, providing some comic relief.

~ But the rate of release is just too slow, otherwise I'd give it 5... more>> stars... <<less
