This Young Master is not Cannon Fodder
On the surface, Xi Tianyi was the only son of Sword Empress Xi of the Buzhou Immortal Sect, the number one expert in the Huang Realm. His birth was noble, his status exalted. But the truth was that Xi Tianyi was actually a reincarnated man from a world known as Earth.
On Earth, he was no one special, but with his new life, Xi Tianyi aims to reign invincible: past, present, and future. Among his goals was to travel back to Earth and reunite with his family.
However, as Xi Tianyi proceeds further on his Immortal path, he discovers that rather than the protagonist, why does he seem more like the cannon fodder villain?

This story starts out pretending to be a parody of the Xianxia genre cliches, even the synposis pretends this is a parody, but then it shows you its not, and you get dissapointed.
If it came out from the start as a straight Xianxia story, I'd give it a 3 star. It could be a good first story into the genre, but if you come looking for something outstanding, or a parody of the genre then continue looking, as this isn't it.
MC is not interesting, and the decision author make to keep Lei one dimesional enemy is just too annoying.
It's early yet but as of chapter ten this novel is fulfilling all of my expectations. While so far not majorly pushing any of the tropes of the genre it is distinctly aware of them and not afraid in the slightest of poking fun at them in such a way that truly shows a certain love and apprection for those same tropes. The main character is level headed and far from the self absorbed over confident insufferable protagonists that litter the genre like chewed bubblegum. He is likeable, diligent, and even compassionate in his own way. I've yet to check out the authors other work but if it's even half as good as what's on display here I will be a happy happy man.
Average at best. Pretends to be a paradoy but not really. Pretends to be xianxia but its more like portal fantasy with tons of reincarnators and whatnot. Its an overall a very confused work based on the author readings different populars CN's and trying to combine them horribly.
Overall would advice to ignore this work as its way to muddled to be be anything other than disappointment.
Like other reviewers have mentioned, the title indicates a parody. But the execution shows that it tries to take itself seriously. The story and characters are mediocre. The language use is laughable.
The language use is exactly at the level of a badly translated, low-tier cultivation story. Except its clear that the author isn't actually Chinese, nor has he or she studied Chinese language or culture. So you see wierd names and misuse of the sayings that would probably actually sound stupid to a native Chinese speaker if that's what the original text said in Chinese.
Basically, it's a clichéd, low-effort cultivation story, as written by someone who has only ever read poor translations of low-tier cultivation stories, and doesn't actually know much about Chinese culture or language.
Or put another way: It's like a low quality photocopy, of a low quality photocopy, of a picture that was originally pretty sub-par in the first place.
Standard. Common. Bland. Run of the mill. Overdone. Boring. Dull. Uninteresting. Average. This novel is nothing special, it's another Xianxia that takes itself to seriously and has less then stellar grammar, nothing special to show. If your into that kind of thing, or you've never read Xianxia before. You might enjoy it, but this is my 27th. It gets dull, fast. I do admit that I came into this with high expectations, maybe to high. It reminded me of Young Master Template, and that's setting the bar well above the masses of Xianxia. So I do apoligize, I didn't enjoy this. But maybe you will
A great take on the genre. Loads of potential and an interesting MC. It's goodbye to see an exploration of the tropes from a different perspective and a more common sense approach. I can't wait for the rest of the story hoping for kingdom building and maybe seeing what a young master can do if they actually use their power for clear goals
Overall pretty good. Not the best, but you still can like it.
The MC is a transmigrator. Unlike some MC of the wuxia trope, he does get born into a good family. So does lead a golden spoon life.
Sadly, that is one of the detractions of the story for me. He leads TOO good of a heads start on his 'antagonists'. We readers do like watching the MC grow and develop. But if they get too good of a head start, it can detract from the growth of the MC.
The MC doesn't suffer a setback until like around chapter 30? I think.
You'll understand when you get to it.
Then that's about when he starts got get 'growing'.
Overall the world is pretty much like how a cultivator world is like. Got your sects, arrogant people, etc. Even has your non-arrogant types too.
I'll keep reading for a while yet. Since in some ways it does entertain. I think of this as good pot of hot noodle 'pho' with all the good toppings and trimmings. May not be a 5 star course meal. But you can't deny, a good 'pho' is good eating too!
Recommended for those who are tired of long ang tiring stories. Basically, the protagonist is a young master born with a silver spoon. Although there are times that the story was nearing being a parody, it has not reached it. Aside from a few errors in spelling, it's a good read for those intending to relax
The title and description are a bit deceptive, and might turn away readers. It's a rather simple, but mostly enjoyable, SI into a cultivation world, with a bit of trope mockery. Light reading, but fun.
