The pinnacle of martial arts is solitary and lonely. It is an endless pursuit for unattainable heights as well. In order to surpass the limits of martial arts, growth and the will to survive in adverse situations is necessary. One day, Yang Kai, a disciple-on-trial (and floor sweeper) of the Lingxiao Martial Arts Sect discovered a Wordless Black Book. That marked the turn in his luck and the beginning of his martial arts journey.
I like this MC. He's truly kind, and merciless to his enemies when needed. He really doesn't pussyfoot around when it comes to dealing with bastards who wish death upon you. Killing them first is always the best choice. Also, the main girl is a hecking qtie. (Though the main girl seems to be a subject to change, after a certain chapter) The girls in this are cute in general. Also, the MC seems smart enough to actually develop his own skills! Something completely unheard of in manhua!
A typical popcorn cultivation novel. Full of shallow, two-dimensional and barely sentient characters? Check. Dragged out pacing and recycled scenarios? Check. Harem to appeal to male fantasy and represents female characters as sex objects? Check. Elders, and people in positions of power being incredibly retarded to make the MC look smart? Check. MC is poweful because of a fruitious encounter, or in other words, luck? Check. The whole thing is just a build up for more people to know how amazing and overpowered the MC is? Check. Incredibly long and covers alot of content? Check. Stiff and rough art? Check. Unoriginal and doesn't stand out? Check. It fulfills all of the requirements. This manhua has nothing going for it besides its incredible length. It's badly written, dragged out, has shallow characters and a generic protagonist. Yeah, I know, he's ruthless and all. He murders people and fucks jade beauties. That's not unique. He's not special. He's the same as any other cultivation novel protagonist. It's a braindead manhua. If you're an attentive reader who pays attention to details, don't read it. If you do want to read it, though, make sure to turn off half of your brain. I'm convinced that reading this kind of stuff can degrade your intelligence. Anyway, this is a for teenagers--it's a teenager's wet dream. It's power fantasy, wish fulfillment, harem and all that. It's fast food. Give it a chance if you're new to this genre though. Your standards should be low so you could enjoy more. Read something bad like this. Anyway, I gave it a 5 because it's in the cultivation genre. There is no competition. Would be too mean if I compare it to fictions outside cultivation, because I'd be forced to give it a 1.
It's okay, I'd say its somewhere below apotheosis in terms of plot and storytelling. Don't expect character development, manhua are just fast food. To better understand the characters I suggest reading the novel. I don't don't expect manhua to be perfect anyway. Two of my favorite novels "Hail the king" and "Release that witch" have shitty manhua while the novels themselves are amazing. The good thing is that mc is quite decisive and don't blush stupidly at women. That has become my main pet peeve in these stories, is the mc an idiot who nosebleed and blushes or is he one who slap them when they come too close. Luckily he is the latter for the most part in the beginning. Afterwards... well let's say its his character development. Storywise it's consistent with cultivation world and well explained until the translator team changed and then it turned into turd. After 200 chapters or so you get the jist of the story and it becomes boring. MC wander off to random places for months/years (you know cultivation time) without a single worry.
