My Review

The early part of this wuxia novel was good unlike other novels, but the author has creative ideas but bad story writing skills. Talking about the main character (MC) ‘s initial background and abilities, such as being reincarnated from Earth, don’t mesh at all with information in the latter half of the story. Characters in this novel are one-dimensional you don’t feel like oh this guy has other sides, they only have one side. Despite this novel’s flaws, it is better than a lot of the other novels out there.

The main protagonist is Young Chen Xiang he been stuck with misfortune because he was born without any spiritual vein so he cannot practice martial arts. But he had a fateful encounter with a goddess and demoness. Suddenly this made his life a big turn for the better path of cultivation and alchemy. As his lifelong adventure, he comes across many secrets and mysteries hidden in this world. While he flirts with women, he makes friends and challenges the lords, immortals, and the devils to the material world.

My Review

The storyline seems like basic wuxia novels, where the MC almost never loses. Just before facing a stronger opponent, MC will have grown stronger just enough to defeat the opponent. Which makes this novel with good settings, not to be overpowered but too powerful enough to make the story balanced. But this novel is harem based some of them are older or both teachers and students with a specialty in various things like alchemist and refining.

Zhang Xuan is our protagonist who traverses into a foreign world and becomes a teacher. Where a mysterious library appears in his dreams. Said virtual library exists in his head, and it does two things: by observing people or objects, he can gain a detailed description of them (with emphasis on their weaknesses and flaws), and by opening any books the Library creates a copy in his head which he can freely access and commit to memory.

My Review

So this wuxia novel begins really well and the story itself isn’t bad. It’s a have a decent plot, nice comedy, no beta MC or anything. But it follows the exact same formula as other novels. Like, the MC will ‘randomly’ run into famous people, end up at some event, or some situation where someone is helpless. Regardless, the novel is hilarious and its character development touching. Suffice to say, just being able to read about the MC turning from some devil-may-care transmigrant into a true teacher who truly does care about his students makes reading this novel worth it. 

Super gene

In a new age where people get teleported to another end of the universe, gaining new abilities from eating a powerful beast. Han sen our protagonist who has quite a luck and gains a treasure that helped him become powerful a little faster, but he is also a very self-reliant person. By becoming more powerful people get titles like an aristocrat, evolved, demigod.

My Review

This novel has great potential, the character building and story development seem nice. I love the concept of this novel, gaining beast souls that can have different uses. If you like overpower MC, romance subplot not harem based but this story had the main girl and Interesting world. Go for it, there’s nothing more, nothing less. A few ‘genetic’ based novels released right now, but somehow I feel this one be the greatest of them all. It’s a shame that such a good novel is starting to be ruined because the translation is getting sloppy. So just read it for what it is and don’t take it for what it isn’t.

My Review

This plot of the wuxia novel is good overall even though at the later parts it gets to be a little slow. The novel is still enjoyable. The best thing about this novel is that the main character actually keeps on honing all his skills like alchemy, blacksmithing, painting, crafting, and many other more skills rather than discarding the skills like other main characters from other novels. I hope that you would enjoy reading this.

Martial God Asura

One night a mysterious and unexplained phenomenon occurs in the nine provinces. Five years later Chu Feng, a regular outer disciple of the Azure Dragon School, awakens one of the mysterious nine lightning beasts. Also, he discovers an egg sealed inside him. From there we follow Chu Feng as he crosses the continent, beating up the strongest senior brothers, raiding tombs, destroying sects, and as well as he conquers beauties.

My Review

In my opinion, this novel is incredible and fantastic although it does have some repetitiveness. Although the plot is very huge it still makes sense. Even though the main character has a very satisfying and cruel personality the way the main character and the other main characters show pretty good character development makes this novel interesting. So while it does have a bad chapter or two here and there you (can’t be possibly expecting it to be perfect, especially with the sheer huge amount of chapters) the novel will keep you entertained for the most part.

Don’t even think to compete with me when it comes to experience, as I’m an ancient ancestor. The existence of Jiang Chen is destined to ridicule thousands of geniuses.

My Review

It’s a very funny novel with a good storyline. The main character is very clever and cruel to his enemies but very friendly to his friends. The best part of this novel is the friendship between him and Big Yellow, both have similar personalities and both are equally cruel too. I’m sure you will like this novel.

In order to avenge his master, he poisoned millions of people to death using the heavenly treasure sky poison pearl but in the end, he was backed into a corner by his enemies that were after the Sky Poison Pearl, but rather than giving them the treasure he committed suicide by jumping off a cliff.

But after dying, he got reincarnated into a new body, but fate was not so generous as he soon found out that the profound veins in his body were crippled which meant that he would not be able to cultivate (level-up). So to fix his profound veins and to protect his loved ones, he started his journey where he fought many powerhouses.

Eradicated many sects, met many new friends, conquered many ravishing beauties, and was finally able to stand at the summit of this world but is that really all that is to it? Read the novel to go with Yun Che with his exciting & thrilling journey~

My Review

    • Renegade Immortal should be number 2, Also you missed beesech the devil and some of the books recommend in the site are really good like rssg or LOHP but I feel like they’re missed place.

    • BTTH and ED aren’t any better than the trash novels this site recommended

  12. I have read martial god asura with a change name
    Similarly there are.many copies of novals with similar plot but different characters such as one like atg in which his lover betrays and he jumps of cliff and reborn as a child with weak veins.
    Similarly many others like the return of immortal emperor ,the pereless master ,the dragon cultivation system but i have found many that resembel them in plot
    I want to ask how can i know which one is the real one since plot is same so after reading one other is off interest

    • Wtf?? The “betray” part happen in like 1400+ chapter… It’s wired Douluo Dalu isn’t here I haven’t read series with similar way of cultivation, so for me it’s the most original one.
