[Reviewed at Chapter 211 (as per M****D*x)] Bingeworthy. Amazing visuals. If you're a fan of wuxia / martial arts / shounen-fantasy comics, this is a very entertaining read. Whilst the story is the somewhat tame compared to other works in the same genre, it's still a good read if you're looking for an easy martial arts comic that doesn't contain too much drama and stress. What I liked: - Simple ranking/cultivation levels. The ranking is super easy to follow - it just goes from Rank 1 - Rank 9. Also, you know the ranks of the others and what MC's target rank is, so there's no need to keep looking up a cultivation chart/wiki unlike other cultivation manhua. - Not many cultivation clichés - for instance, in other manhua where the MC is constantly in chase of treasure/pills/herbs etc to level up and has unbelivably good luck to keep stumbling into them - thankfully the treasure-stumbling-pill-eating is kept to a bare minimum. - No over-dramatical revenge/gruesome/over-stressful situations. - Amazing visuals and artwork. You can truly appreciate the amount of effort that the artist put in. - Plenty of chapters to read which makes it very bingeworthy. - MC makes decent progress towards his goal and you can see that the story is going somewhere. - There's no constant changing of goalposts - the MC's ultimate target is the demon king, and at least so far, the Demon King remains the strongest being and the main target, so it's not like other manhua where the strongest being is defeated and a stronger one comes along and the MC has to level up and same thing repeats again and again. At least not yet. What I disliked: - Unfortunately some of the earlier scanlation chapters are low in quality, which becomes painfully obvious if you're reading this on a large-screen device like a tablet. This is a shame since the visuals are so good and you miss out on enjoying some epic scenes because of the low quality scans. Thankfully, it gets better later. - Pacing could be better. There are sudden level jumps / time skips / flashback explanations, but at least they don't drag the story out with too many sidequests. Overall, I give this an 8/10. Whilst the story is tame and nothing revolutionary, it's an easy-reading, entertaining manhua that makes it a good choice for somene new to this genre.
You guys must be wondering about my low overall rating. Believe me, the reading experience is like moving back and forth between lessons in higher and lower classes in school. There is no continuation and when you start to get into the story the next chapter will be from totally distant part, and when we get into that, it comes back to the previous part. This is so frustrating to read. If it were arranged right, it would have been an 8/10 atleast. Sad! I decided I had enough jumping around and dropped it after 35 chapters. Believe me or try it youself.
