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 Monday to Wednesday, and then Friday.

Honestly one of the best funny cultivation reads

Reviewed at: ROUS

Honestly I'm not sure that we are really deep enough to call this a parody of the cultivation genre but it is a great laugh. The farm is just an awesome alternative sect of his own and the disciple characters are just the best. Some of the more intelligent side characters could use some more fleshing out but it is early in the story. I have to say so far I am hooked and can't wait for the next chapter to come..

This is one of those stories that is just pure undiluted fun. The author takes an absurd concept, and then sets it up so well that it stops being absurd and starts being beautiful.

And what keeps it fun are the superbly engaging characters. 

The MC is genuinely relatable in a low-key way, while the cast of thinking animals provide the xianxia color.

The title is no false advertisement. In the great Fa Ram sect, one must indeed beware the chicken, for he is the senior disciple. In other news, Jin finds it hilarious that his rooster seems be practicing kick-style martial arts on the farm's fence. The bird looks so cute! The sign "beware of chicken" is a joke, really, how much damage could a not-very-large rooster do to unwary intruders?

For this story, the slow pace is a feature. It's ultimately about a guy wanting to live life one day at a time and avoid 'cultivator bullshit'... not realizing that he is the cultivator causing all the bullshit. The story has a rich supporting cast (including the MC's eventual significant other), not just animals. The other people surrounding the MC all feel like genuine people trying to live their lives. 

One must also mention that so far the other has maintained a rock solid daily update rate. That's extremely commendable, especially on a story of this quality.

The story itself is an excellent slice-of-life, with just enough action to keep things spicy. It's a brilliant balance between fluff, romance and action, and is a joy to read (or in my case, re-read for the 4th time).

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 best xianxia I have ever read

Reviewed at: Chapter 26: Two Pig Open Sleigh

Well this shot to the top of ''Popular this Week''! My review contains a bit of information from the first 2 chapters of the novel that is heavily implied in the title and synopsis. 

I wont mince my words. I'm a big reader of Chinese serials of all kind. But this is BY FAR one of the BEST WORKS I've ever read in the genre. 

This is mixing a lot of genres... and taking some of the ''memes'' about it and playing with them in a good way. The cultivation system was heavily simplified, which is a bit of a bummer so far, but there's still so much room for this to grow. 

What I mean by a mix of genres and memes? Well... there's an isekai element where our protagonist is beaten up by a young master. He ends up creating a magical farm and is deceptively strong. Spirit beast shennenigans. Not giving face to the local sect... Anyway, you've got a bunch of classics here. 

But it being told through a rational, likeable MC mixed with the viewpoint of his ''apprentice'' chicken... wow. The pace and feel of the story is just so wholesome and fun. It is a beauty.

I support a few of the bigger authors on Patreon since I enjoy their works so much, but I'm getting in early on this. The consistent updates are just the cherry on the cake. 

Even if you're not a big fan of xianxia, give this a go. The story, characters, style, grammar, there's no flaw here.

That chicken is a majestic beast.

Reviewed at: Chapter 26: Two Pig Open Sleigh

My only disapointment was catching up to the releases and not having more to read. 

I love the characters, the pacing is good. tension happens even with the slice of life feel it has, and that chicken..... A farm mascot has a better character ark in under 160 pages than what some finished books give their main protaganists.

This is just a nice, comfortable read. It's nice to kick back sometimes with a book that isn't all about the end of the world, that isn't all stress and training for the next life-threatening battle. "Chicken soup for the soul" is a term that comes to mind, fittingly enough

Xianxia done right

Reviewed at: v2C19: Boar

This story drew me back into the Xianxia genre. Grammar is a bit iffy at times, but nothing serious. Our MC finds himself in a Xianxia World, and decides the rat race to eternity is not worth it. Huge cast of unique, and fun characters. The multiple POVs do not detract from the story, but rather enhance it. Highly recommended.

This story caught me off guard, in a very good way. The writing is sharp and entertaining, the characters are fun, and the humor and humanity are real. Couldn't be happier to have stumbled across this one.

A cultivation story in multiple senses, this author's work can't continue quickly enough.

A ++++ would recommend again.

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.

A great up and coming Xianxia webserial

Reviewed at: The Spirit Furnace

"Beware of Chicken", despite having less than a hundred pages at the time of writing this review, is one of, if not the best xianxia webserial I have come across. In this story, the main character is transmigrated to a xianxia world and placed inside the body of a young sect member. He then does the only reasonable thing to do and gets the hell out of dodge to become a farmer.

The novel is an extremely well written comedy/slice of life novel with enough serious plot elements to keep the reader engaged without overwhelming the more comedic aspects. 

The characters are multidimensional and behave in realistic and interesting manners. The overall writing style is solid and immersive, and I was unable to find any issiues with the grammar. I genuinely cannot think of anything negative to say about this web serial, aside from maybe complaining there isn't more out yet, although with the web serial's so far daily upload schedule, this is likely to fix itself with time.

Overall I would recomend this novel to lovers and haters of the xianxia genere as well as anyone else looking for a slice of life/comedy with suprisingly compelling characters and story elements.
