Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.

Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?

Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.

In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

A Peaceful story with plenty of comedy

Reviewed at: The Mid-Autumn Festival

This was a breath of fresh air, and I love it to bits despite just having found it. The humor is grand and the interactions between characters feels natural and while reading it, there were few times I did Not have a goofy smile on my face. So many Xianxia stories have face slapping and constant pushing to be stronger, while few look at the other side of cultivation, that of comprehension and simply being at peace/one with the world. I highly recommend anyone to try it out!

An extremly entartaining story, very light-hearted and fun. I love Big D/ Bi de, and the relationship between Jin and

Meimei

 

is just so cute! This is a very nice breath of fresh air, and for sure, i'll continue reading this.

Thanks for writing such a nice little book, Casualfarmer!

The second volume doesn't live to my expectation.

Reviewed at: v2c59: People and Places part 2

 

The second volume did not live to my expectation. Too focused on other side characters. Sometimes I've even forgotten Jin Rou is our MC.

It's okay to have POV from the side characters, once in a while. But it was done too much.

I agreed with the person who pointed out that the story felt more like side stories as the (my assumed) main story only progressed a little bit. I felt lost and don't know where the story would go. 

The story still interesting tho.

Pretty standard xianxia parody

Reviewed at: v2c57: See You Again

What started out as a story of an isekai'd dude who chooses the path of effort over conflict has devolved into a slice of life furry-lite story about chickens, cats and snakes   

The "protagonist" only seemed to exist to act as a reaction machine where he calls all developments positive and worth struggling for even though it makes no sense. This is a world where ppl harvest spiritual animals for ingredients and the guy is building a literal menagerie of spiritual animals without any way to protect them.  

Power levels are all muddled and there is no way to tell if the characters are stronger than the cultivators who could realistically come for their necks and the overall plot is muddled.   

 

It's clear now this story isn't anything unique it's just a slight twist on every xianxia webnovel you've ever read. We're even getting a tournament arc after a perilous journey arc... 

Wasted potential from what the story began as, it's an OK read but feels like a burning time following every chapter. Better to wait for a good 3 months before reading a chunk

cultivate humility, not piety

Reviewed at: ROUS

I usually despise cultivation stories; finding them dull, boring, and highly repetitive.

This Author has certainly knocked his summary out of the park; something that would often turn me away did its job, drew me in, and fed my curiosity.

I adore the take on cultivation in this Novel and highly recommend it to everyone to give it a shot.

Well Done Author!!! Well Done!!!

I Started reading the wrong chapter.

Reviewed at: Chapter 28: Strength and Skill

Somehow or another, I miss-clicked when I first started reading this story, and skipped to chapter 12, The Mid-Autumn Fest, and guess what? The story still somehow managed to be very good.

I kept getting mysterious vibes whenever Jin mentioned something that happend in the first chapters, thinking that's how the author wanted to tell the backstory of the mc or past events that happend before the start of the story, and I found it awesome.

A couple of days after I binge read it, I came back and opened the first chapter, only to be baffled by reading something I haven't before.

So, I started reading and thought that since the story is already good as it is, and I understand everything going on, the first chapters won't be adding much, but I was WRONG, and the story somehow got better!

Amazing story, 10/10, would read again.

I will begin by saying I hate the whole young master B's and all the power difference between heaven and earth crap. This is the story of a man who feels the same. 🤣 I love this story the closest thing we have to a young master are the farm animals and their trials and tribulations. Guy gets thrown into a cultivating world of BS and goes nope none of that toxic shit for me I'll just farm and live a good life. Who'd have thunk that simple sentiment would give him the best story.my favorite character is probably his rooster I'm not gonna throw names around because just the names bring me joy. I feel like the rooster is a better mc that 99.99% of protagonists in must wuxias. He's noble, trying to learn, caring, and strong seriously the rooster is the full deal. Our actual mc isn't bad himself but his story so far is more sweet slice of life and I love him too 🤣 just a carefree guy doing what he wants that feels right to him. A guy like that not being stabbed in the back just for being a decent human being is a breath of fresh air. Anyway thanks author I'm gonna stop gushing now hope you keep writing.

Overall

A little xianxia action, a little slice of life, a dash of romance. This is a truly refreshing contribution to the genre. Every aspect of the story is good, but what makes it really stand out is that the main character doesn't focus on gaining power. The chicken provides an excellent foil in that regard.

Started great, wasted potential after first volume

Reviewed at: 33.1: The Legend Begins

Beware of Chicken is a story I loved at first. And really, the first volume is a pretty refreshing take on the already fairly worn out genre.

It has everything one would want from a fantastic new world that nonetheless is coherent and competently planned out. A very likeable MC, characters who actually feel alive, with their own worries and woes. 

But as it usually goes, no good things ever seem to last.

I am unsure what was the decision behind the narrative shift after first volume. It could have been editorial pressure, the author wanting to try something new. 

Or them just becoming so enamoured with their own world showing more of it seemed to just become a must. 

Either way, as of volume 2 of the story, there is little story.

The MC as of volume 2 has very very little screen time. In fact, minor characters get more screen time in volume 2 than MC did throughout the entirety of volume 2 as of the time of writing this review. As such any interactions, plans, story progression, or events that I was hoping would get expanded on were instead pushed aside as if an afterthought. 

While I love learning more about the world the author has envisioned, it all needs to be in good balance with the main story, even in a slice of life novel. 

As things stand, the MC became a minor character in his own story, and due to an extreme increase in PoVs from a whole bunch of minor characters, I really don't see this story getting back on track over the next 100 chapters minimum. The focus is too scattered and there are too many characters to follow to tie it all up together nicely.

Very saddening to see a story I once looked forward to reading a new chapter of to just something about yet another minor character I can't even bring myself to care about.

TL;DR: As unfortunate as it is, the main story essentially ends with volume 1. 

Volume 2 is pretty much all about side stories and afterwords, seems very unlikely to change anytime soon.

A drop in quality from close to 5 stars all around to just around 3+

A perfect satire

Reviewed at: ROUS

I didn't know I needed a cultivation story satire, but I really, really did.

 

It's still fairly early on in the story, but I was pretty much hooked by chapter 2.  It's well-written, with engaging characters, natural dialog, and hardly any typos or grammar errors to be found.  The humor is also well done, especially the early exploits of Bi De.

 

I'm definitely looking forward to more.
