I just want to read more and more. It's fun and hilarious. Among many xianxia novels I have read this one is very refreshing. I hope the author will not forget what makes this novel unique and fall for the traps into becoming another xianxia novel.

If you like cultivation and litrpg elements, then this story is for you! Plus the MC is pretty humorous too.

The story is awesome and the author is writing a much better story than the summary or title implies.

 

The MC is also smart and has done pretty good stuff in order to survive.

I am thoroughly enjoying this story. I laugh nearly every chapter. It is nice to read a cultivation story which breaks the mould.

Pretty funny satirical look at xianxia genre

The author makes fun of all the xianxia isekai tropes, with an engaging plot

A fitting title eludes me

Reviewed at: 21. Tragic Past

The story is good, much better than most xianxia bullcrap I've read that's for sure. But the one thing that ruins it for me is the same reason why I dislike most cultivation novels; the MC. Although in this case, for very different reasons.

Han De (the MC) acts like someone who has a mental problem. And not the 'this is just a side effect of being a genius' type that Sheldon Cooper has, or the cinematic type that The Joker has, or even the type that Stinky Pete down the street has. No. This is the 'I've spent a lifetime immersing myself in silly Chinese literature and have now lost touch with reality' type of mental problem.

Don't get me wrong. I understand that his situation is anything but ordinary (not to mention dangerous), what with all the tropes being tossed around, but his overall behaviour so far has shown a level of callousness that strongly suggests he does not consider this world to be fully... real, for lack of a better word. I mean his treatment of Ning Bi (his disciple) is just... that's a child under your fucking care, she's not some... Anyway, I'm taking a break from the story for now. Maybe I'll return to it in the future, who knows?

All that aside though, please note that author did do good work with rest of the story.

Interesting premise, strong beginning, grows increasingly incoherent over time.

Reviewed at: 43. Anger Management

This is a story compelling enough that I could ignore the broken grammar until I reached the end of the currently released chapters. However, after a dozen chapters, the story seemed to grow increasingly disconnected from its starting point, of a humouristic view of a modern day person transported into a xianxia world and forced to take on disciples to avoid his destiny of attracting calamities and dying to:

a tiresome drudge of random powerups for the mc, several point of view shifts which leave me confused and bored while revealing nothing except the abyss of grammar hell, a rapid acquisition of bland disciples who suck up yet more pov chapter time, no credible threat in sight, and an army of underlings at the MC's beck and call who can stomp any known enemy yet revealed except for the mystery void who is being mysterious and refusing to do anything except be mysterious and make tiresome commentary.

 

The story is still readable, but my enjoyment has rapidly dropped off.

This is a blatant rip-off of 'Master of Untold Daos', which is being translated on wuxiaworld forums. At least acknowledge it in the description.

Interesting deconstruction of the Xianxia genre

Reviewed at: 43. Anger Management

I don't normally like Xianxia but I surprisingly did like this. Perhaps it's because the story is so self aware and self referential that it doesn't grate on my nerves as much when the parts of Xianxia I don't like appear.

Just a really fun, humorous, and interesting read.
