"You're too arrogant."

To Dyon, it seemed as though these words were heard all the time.

However, how could these people possibly know of all his hard work? Of the fact that sleep was but a distant relative of his. How could they know that he never had a single moment to rest.

And yet, despite their ignorance, they still said, "you're too arrogant..."

But where were those people when a five-year-old Dyon's eyes shone looking at a computer screen filled with code? Where were those people when an eight-year-old Dyon played his piano and plucked his guitar strings until his fingers bled... needing to vent his feelings about his lost mother without bothering his fatigued father? Where were those people when Dyon sat alone at ten-years-old… when his parents were gone, and the only thing left was a room filled with inventions and computers?

Dyon's arrogance wasn't borne of thin air. It was his hard work. It was his shield. And he wasn't willing to give it up...

Now alone, he left his home behind.

He was no longer the boy genius who changed the human mortal realm. He was now nothing but a commoner, a bug noble families saw fit to step on. An insignificant existence.

And yet, Dyon was still the same unchanging person. Standing tall, his eyes firm and his will indomitable.

This so-called Martial World would come to understand the meaning behind his existence...

 

**Excerpt**
---------------------------------
"You're quite bold for a girl who's almost been recluse for her whole life you know," Dyon said chuckling.

"Little sister Delia and Meiying probably think so too, but you've been in my heart since the opening ceremony. Maybe not exactly in this way… But sometimes a foot in the door for a long time leads to a fully open one, no?"

Dyon smiled, 'it seems like she's been watching from afar for a long time… it must be lonely being in that room with Libro all the time.'

Dyon felt a delicate hand playing with his collar, "the truth is that I'm always playing the gentle big sister role, mostly because I have no idea how much longer I'll have the chance to…"

The vulnerability in her voice made Dyon tremble. Madeleine was so strong, yet it seemed even martial artists had their weaknesses too.

Writing this after reading 200+ chapters of this... the premise is good, but the lack of detail in the character/plot development is slightly painful. 

The cultivation style coupled with ‘will/intent’ comprehension is relatively unique, however the description as to how Dyon develops his understanding of ‘will’ is superficial and doesn’t convey any sense of wonder/profoundness beyond the first few chapters. By expanding on how ‘will’ manifestations interact with reality, it would make Dyon’s choice to enter conflict with others have more impact - it feels like this is poorly explained so that the author free reign to let him Mary Sue his way out of pretty much any situation. 

The reason why Dyon doesn’t cultivate in the essence gathering system is only clear after the role of faith seeds/God constitutions in maturing meridians is explained (around chapter 190) - nothing would have been lost in explaining this earlier in the novel when he decides to focus on will comprehension and soul cultivation. 

Honestly the way characters are introduced and interact with eachother are disappointing.  Dyon’s convictions are thrown out far too suddenly - there’s not need to declare that he’s going to protect the girls he loves/his friends from any threat before he actually develops a meaningful relationship with them or encounters a source of danger? He’s not had a #tragicbackstory or other discernable motivation explained enough to show why he gets so rapidly attached to complete strangers to the detriment of himself. 

The factions/pillars of the academy initially have the potential to be a sufficient source of intrigue/plot development, but the way in which they’re dismissed to being “branches” of much bigger clans that are in contention for control of their universe/others is poorly done - there’s no showing of the power disparity between branch/core factions and the way Dyon can act with relative impunity to both of these very early on in the story is ridiculous. 

I think this story could be vastly improved if there was more effort put into giving characters substance as opposed to making them race towards a grand stage where celestial beings are in conflict... 

(All of that being said, I binge read this far in less than a day so obviously something was in the story that stopped me from putting it down...)

I got to chapter 17 or so before I just couldn't go on.  

On the surface this novel is a generic power fantasy/ wish fulfillment Xanxia novel.

The novel is quite entertaining if you can get over the fact that the Mc is only 13 years old, but is somehow better at everything than everyone he meets.  For example he learns  incredibly advanced skills in a couple hours. Skills that take so called "geniuses" years to learn  even the foundations of.  The kid (Mc) is simply too unrealistic and "perfect" for me to become invested in his character.  

That's all well and good, and if that was the only problem I have with this novel I would probably still be reading it, using it as a relaxing break where I can zone out and not think too much.

Unfortunately the author made that impossible. 

The Mc is only 13 he's constantly flirting and sexually attracted to every beautiful female character that he meets, which is every female character.  The young girls in this novel are always depicted in quite the sexual manner ( 13- 15 year olds)  and every single conversation the young boy of an Mc has with these girls is in someway about getting together with them. 

I'm a man in my late 20s. I might like a good coming of age story or young adult novels a little more than I'd like to admit, but this was impossible for me.

I don't want to be picturing young girls in a sexual manner.  This novel had slight promise, but the only thought I have after reading almost 20 chapters is how uncomfortable this novel made me feel.

So far I have found that the overall take on the cultivation style to be fairly original if not unique but I have found that the overall execution has been hit and miss.

The characters are fairly 2 dimensional and if I am being honest boring. Take our MC for example he is your common nobody going up against all the big bad cultivators, if you cross path with the MC you are squashed with his plot hammer. So nothing really interesting there. He is supposed to be hardworking but since the author doesn't do training scenes really it just feels like the MC is just automatically leveled up instead of working for it.

 

Now my biggest problem with this story is the setting. The author does not do a good job of explaining the world system he has devised for this story. We have the human world and the martial world. Are these different planes of existence or is it more like nobles and commoners? We don't know. Where is this academy the MC is at? What continent is the MC on/near? What Country/Empire or territory is he in? There is talk about a universe so are the cultivators spread across multiple planets or are they on one planet. If they are on multiple planets how do they travel to each one?

 

Another issue I have is why are all these important people / semi-important people at this apparently backwater academy?

 

I would rate the world building of this story at 2 out of 5 for the above mentioned points. There are some other issues but it is more of a personal issue I have with this genre so I won't mention it.

 

Overall I am intrigued by this story and I think this is probably a good first draft of this story.

Every anime/manga stereotype ever

Poor attempt at a fiction that displays a depth of reading that halts at the level of basic anime. Full of stereotypes; overdone, terrible dialogue, and all of the social awareness of a 13-year-old child. Surprisingly good control of grammar, though. Every stupid adolescent fantasy rolled into one, with an author far too in love with the sound of his own voice - he can't even leave the reader in peace, but continues to interject himself via author's notes to try to control the reader's opinions, rather than simply relying on the power of his own writing.

This story isn't for everyone. If you don't like it from the start, meaning first ten or so chapters, you probably won't like the story at all. Because, you know, it's this kind of story for people who want this kind of story. Ridiculously OP character who is behaving this particular way. Who can steamroll his enemies without much problem. Have hell of a (improbable) good luck and probably will have. The kind of story which you go into so you can have fun, watch crazy scenes and cheer for MC with nearly total assurance of him getting through the shit and smell after flowers afterward.

So, please. If you don't like the story, go away. It's not the right story for you. And being brat about it is hurting the author. You know, the person who is working hard for it and probably love it and just want to make other people having some good time. It's hard, making something nice. Try write some good shit, sorry for my French, and maybe after that you can tear into another person.

With this off from my chest, I am overall happy with the story.

I like the way the author create the atmosphere in it. You can pretty easily paint the image in your head if you are the kind of person. Some of Awespec's scenes are just so alive, work with the story in a way which really grabs your attention and makes great visuals. I like author's crazy imagination. It's hard to write in a way that doesn't bore quickly and Awespec is making good job so far.

There are few aspects that are irritating me - the thing with beaty, sometimes too easy way the MC has it, the stupidity of some characters (if not all of them in moments). But all in all, it's solid story.

4* in reality, but I'll give it full. You probably know why.

Complex characters? What are those?

Origionality is as far from this as the protaginsit is from women who aren't atractive. . . that is to say I haven't encountered one in in the 74 chapters I have had the mediocrity to read. The characters motivations are solely protagonist based, the world does not exist exept in refrence to the protagonist. 

So--

Style: there is no origionality or style to the writting .5 stars

Grammar: noticable flaws in puctuation, and gramatical structure 2.5 stars

Story: so mary sue goes and-oh, did I say mary sue? silly me, I obviously ment ms... er mc. Anyway the mc goes and is an austintatious and blithering ass who disresptcts increadibly dangerous people who none-the-less either think highly of him or are evil and hate him, or are good but ultimitly regret not kowtowing at first greating. There is no story. There is power fantacy. .5 stars

Characters: Even the mc is 2D, DON'T come here for complex or at all interesting characters.

overall: It's shit. But it does have enough chapters to waste your time. 1.5 stars

 

p.s. We have a 13-14(possibly 15 by now) year old runing around flirting with and lusting after tons of girls. Going back to personalities it seems the author thinks one must hate or love another and in no cocivible universe can you have a multifaceted opinion of them... especialy if that character is the mc.

Cringy, Cheesy, and overall horrible

The main character is a walking talking cringy and cheesy child that is so overpowered he has visible plot armor.

 

I lasted 7 chapters before I could not read anymore but you may last a couple more, but expect ridiculous dialogue from children, a cheesy and cringy main character.

Probably i"m thrown away from this so much, because I'm female, but anyway, definitely not something i'd ever want to read, and didn't even force myself to go trough at least 20 chapters I usually do before grading, simply because it's this hard to read.

The worst sort of cringy wish-fulfillment. The MC is a cool kid not afraid of anything using modern thought and technology to upset the martial arts world. Watch him shamelessly flirt with preteen girls!

 

I've been told that it gets better in later chapters but I can't continue. Best of luck to the future.

Sorry, I just can't. (Edit: Maybe I can)

 

Mc is too op, genius, arrogant, flirt, show off, knowlegeable etc. etc. Too much everything. When you combine all that it just makes unbeliveable, literally and cringe as fuck. Even xianxia won't go this far, and if they dp they at least have excuse of character being some reincarnation of ultimate expert or whatnot.

In this case he's just some 13 year old. So far even many of his actions are just totally stupid and counterproductive, so hes even too stupid on top of all the other "too's".

Mc's character is contradictory, seems to have strong plot armor and just doesnt make any sense.

This coming from someone who highly enjoys xianxia genre with it's many times arrogant characters.

 

Edit:

After reading trough early chapters it gets better and pretty good. I'm going to leave my early review there though because my opinion is still same on those chapters. It' kind of like batism by fire, after you can get trough those early chapters it get better. It's insteresting novel and I enjoy reading it, but character is established quite badly. You forget and get over it after while though.
