So far only read the 40 translated chapters, however those are quite compelling. It’s part of “MC is too steady” genre that’s been popping up lately, but it is quite well done. It’s more character driven than usual xianxia, with more intelligent writing and dialogue. While it sometimes seems the dangers in the cultivation world are somewhat exaggerated, a cultivation world where dangers are everywhere makes for a more convincing representation of it. Additionally, villains so far seemed to be quite intelligent.

4.5/5. I really like the novel. There are novels where plot happens just so that you find it too much and annoying. Other novel also has this error of having no good explanation of the protagonist plot armor and too much coincidence. However, this novel uses that as a plot. This gives the novel a good sense of plot direction and focus the novel what it needs to convey without the hassel of too much coincidences in the plot. It is really an ingenious way to tell a story and drive the plot. Really enjoying the book.

It actually get really good, especially when you realize that the mc isn’t too cautious but is fully sane.

Very good start, then it went downhill I legit read 50 more chapters than I should’ve. Emperor arc is the most boring and unnecessary thing possible. Putting MC in the middle of every big events while still never showing his strength is just annoying to read. The whole arc feels like fillers with nothing interesting happening, no plot dev and no kingdom building either. almost no content in dozens of chapters.

  • also few mistakes in translation like name changing from chapters to chapters and also 1/4 chapters after c150 don’t compress the text when zoomed in.

I’m rly getting lost in all of that

Is this book fixed yet? I know that almost all raws are gutted like here, but I still have some hope for the future.

Could have been better. But man, after reading for so many chapters, having the ability to just “play safe” is quite good if done well, but with MC literally being super cautious (he’s literally Chinese born Seiya Ryuuguuin), it gets more and more repetitive instead. You would know what he will do everytime there’s a happening near him.
