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.

Beware of Chicken will be updated once per day. The exact time is up in the air, however.

I don't get it.

I fully expect this review to get dozens or maybe even over a hundred dislikes. Meh. People get blinded by their love and see any critique as an attack. Dislike as you will, here is my review regardless.

It's a kind of fun story but it has no direction and it is riddled with spelling and grammar errors. The author doesn't bother to fix pointed out mistakes either.

Were people just starved for a cultivation story that has nothing to do with cultivation?

MC decides to farm instead of cultivate. Okay, not unique but an interesting twist. Oh, look at that. His decision to not cultivate leads to him cultivating via farming and he becomes strong. Buys animals as livestock. Oh, look at that. They are all becoming spirit animals and powerful. Meets a nice girl in a village, literally the first girl he meets. Oh, look at that. Decides to marry her after just a couple of days and a handful of conversations.

Everything seems rushed and without any direction. The last few chapters have been incredibly boring compared to the kind of fun first 24 or so.

I really don't get it. Whatever reason everyone loves this story so faithfully, I wish I too could have. It's crazy.

Story: 3.5 It's fun for a bit, quickly gets boring and never has had a point, really, beyond 'farm, don't cultivate, be happy'.

Style: 1.5 The style is a mess. This goes hand in hand with grammar. Suffice to say, the MC talks to the reader from time to time. Fourth wall breaking is only one of this story's many style issues.

Grammar: 1 I mean, it's readable. My biggest issue with the grammar is the author's lack of care for the glaring mistakes people helpfully point out in the comments. A simple ctrl+f would fix most of that. I should know, I've done it hundreds of times on my fics before.

Character: 2 I don't really care about anyone. The MC has no goals, really, beyond being happy. The farm animals are loyal and naive. That's about it. Meimei... exists? I dunno. She hasn't had much screen time so she doesn't have much of a personality yet.

Like I said, it's an okay story but certainly a disappointment for one of the site's top-rated novels.

A light and fun read that leaves you wanting more, but not on the edge of your seat. Nice for relaxing.
A MC who looks at the cultivation world and says "nope" instead of the so many in other works, who decide to shoot for the top. And you love following his antics.

And ofcourse there the "chicken". :)

just the right kind of irreverance and farming of friendship. I thought it would be much rougher from the first chapter, but the MC is extremely likable.
Love the alternate character perspectives. It works.
I didn't want to stop reading - so much for the - I will just read a chapter or two to find out what the hubbub is about. 
Just delightful.

A great story in my oppinion!

Reviewed at: Chapter 36: Homecoming

A unique view to typical generic cultivation novels. The main character retains his old world morals and values by not going full gongho on the path of cultivation which is filled with killings and betrayal. Well the killing part is still there tho. He also doesn't carry around the air of a cultivator and still stays humble with his supernatural powers.

The story is probaly one of the best ones that I have ever read on this website.  Its an odd and very heartwarming spinoff of the regular isakaied into a xanxia.  I was never really one for the slice of life genre, but this is definatly an exception.  No plot all character development.

Overall

This is outstanding.  Rather than follow the traditional route of face-slapping and combat, the author has chosen to write a Canadian cultivator who just wants a quiet farm life.  It is a glorious combination of daily living and reasonable actions that is a true joy to read.  I cannot recommend strongly enough.

I'm only on chapter 8, but I'm absolutely loving it. I really like the differing views of the chicken and mc, and I also love that we have a wholesome love story instead of the usual drivel xianxia puts out. I'm really interested where this is going in the future.

I genuinely love this novel. It's such an interesting spin on the normal xianxia style story, and one that I greatly appreciate!! The relaxed demeanor and comfortingly amusing scenes have earned this novel a spot in my comfort reading novel 'bookshelf'. My only recommendation is to wait as long as you can bear before you begin reading this novel, because you may just binge it all and be left to wait for the next chapter (updates are regular, I'm just super psyched and can't wait to read the next chapters).

The main character is a very decent guy, who is striving for contentment, rather than power. His life on his farm is picturesque and serene, with each additional character providing new, interesting personalities and dynamics.

The worldbuilding is interesting, and tidbits are dropped sparingly as our MC happens across them. Its quite interesting how the power system is slightly different than the classic 'pulls up the wazoo' xianxia.

The story seems like it will be a somewhat plot-driven slice of life style novel, with undercurrents of romance (so far, nothing lewd!). I'm genuinely to see where things go!

P.S. My three favorite characters (excluding the MC) are Peppa, Meiling, and Xialong. Genuinely, all of the main characters are a joy to read about.

TL/DR: The MC is chill, supporting characters are dynamic, and it's a great spin on a worn out classic xianxia style.

I purposefully gave this review to catch people who ignore the 5 star reviews and the 1 ~ 2 star reviews, ya I'm talking to you!

Give this novel a shot, it defiantly has the trademarks of a green novelist but one that is defiantly has some skill and that skill keeps growing!

The story takes the view point of several character through the story but it's done well enough as to not confuse the read. The steady pace of the story really does look like it's going some where as oppose to just a waste of time slice of life (for the record I like slice of life but still) .

 

And you won't be disappointed by the antics of the side characters!

 

Ps / spoilers:
The MC is also Canadian if that does anything for you as it did for me!

Wholesome cultivation(farm in xianxia)

Reviewed at: Side Quest

If this story will keep the atmosphere of a wholesome farmer/cultivator, it'll be great

For now, I'd say it's good. A pleasant story without xianxia bullshit.

I've bone to pick with the story because the author tried to introduce tension with cliffhager in one chapter and ruined the hearty atmosphere of the next chapters with worry about the farm.
