The Thundering Tortoise Trio

by Mullayo

Original HIATUS Adventure Comedy Fantasy Satire Anti-Hero Lead Magic Martial Arts Multiple Lead Characters School Life Slice of Life Strategy Strong Lead Wuxia Xianxia

Three young friends try to make their way together, through the dog-eat-dog cultivation world of the jianghu -- and even worse, their teens!.

They have chosen to take the path less travelled, by rising as a single entity -- of three entirely separate individual people -- The Thundering Tortoise Trio!

Along their merry, yet sometimes scary, way, Jian Cheng, Fatty Li Feng and Fairy Fen Ling will forsake their own petty selfishness, their hateful overbearing sect, conventional cultivation wisdom and even the entire righteous path, for the family they have become... And for benefits of course!

After all, everyone loves benefits!

Join these three friends with benefits (*we're not changing the title though...), as they probably overcome every obstacle (* but no promises) to bravely forge their own future!

Starts generic, then gains a lot of personality - Chapter 47

Reviewed at: Token of One's Esteem

The first two chapters are rather ok-ish but after the third one the story finds its own style and develops charmingly, the mixture of humor and xianxia is a more western approach to stand up unlike the traditional chinesse comedy of "breaking the formality of a situation" and this mixture feels very fresh

As with all stories the development of ideas is more important than the originality, this starts as a very standard story but the way it handles itself sets it apart, then it develops an interesting gimmick of infiltration not really used in the regular xianxia and it focuses on personal and inter sectual interactions while cultivaion is a factor in those relationships but never replaces them

At chapter 47 the characters' personalities are still the same but they are much more fleshed out than before and when a character is missing the group's interactions vary considerably, it gets to the point wheer its fun to see how different characters reach to the same situation and they themselves are aware of how different their dinamics are when the party composition changes

They do feel like a group of friends who have been together for a long time and are used to each other's shenanigans, and its fun to see their team dinamics while the plans have to move forward

Overal a very nice change of pace compared to regular xianxia, but it also assumes the reader is familiar with the genre so it may be hard to grasp if this is your first xianxia

Also, i like turtles so i may be biased, but who doesnt like turtles? 

Start at chapter 3 and see for yourself

For me this feels like a comedy book mixed with a cultivation book. It has its fun moments. But it aslo has it serius moments.

Great Xianxia story, one of the few that portrays as a team and not an individual without the common clichΓ©s that spoil a good novel, focusing on interpersonal relationships without losing the beauty of cultivation and without creating a killing machine that you only know how to use a sword , I loved all the main characters with different personalities, so far all the novels show an innovative style mixing comedy and xianxia naturally I expect more posts, don't die with the corona virus, God bless the Google translator.

a weekly schedule of 1/3 will undoubtedly bring more visibility to the novel, happy for its healthy days

more more more more more more more πŸ˜‘πŸ’ / 😊🐒🐒 / πŸ˜†πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’
