This could be the best novel in this genre I have ever read. The story is good (and originell thats rare), funny (thats rare too) and action. I like the MC. I would prefer more romance but its fine. The biggest issue is... The MC's power, in this kind of novel I expect a very powerfull MC with many diffrent skills but those are the most boring and sh*t skills I have ever seen. Thats a big issue in a xianxia novel. Because a xianxian novel is... more>> all about the MC having many different interesting skills. But this time he is only a turtle. A big disappointment it could be a 5/5 (with legendary status) but its a 2/5 for me. <<less

Sigh... I didn’t really want to drop this but I had to. I don’t know if the author thought a turtle MC would be a way to keep this story from being like the rest, but I personally want no part in it.

... more>>

The way I see it Wang Lu had no reason to take that pledge and make himself a walking fortress who can’t attack. It was a stupid school competition that they had already won and he really wouldn’t be affected if he lost to his female apprentice. Sooooooo yeah after that he is basically a turtle, worse even. Turtles can bite you if you piss them off, but Wang Lu basically can’t do sh*t. He has some kamikaze technique he can use and that’s it.

Wang Lu could easily have become the fastest (strongest?) practitioner in the novel, but now he’s going to be the most indestructible turtle the multiverse has ever seen. All because of a stupid inter-school competition with no life and death stakes.


The reason I’m disappointed isn’t just because I don’t like the way the MC is being developed, but because of the reason that he was forced to take this road. I would honestly be less annoyed if the author just wrote ‘tough, deal with it’ instead of that retarded story line.

I liked the story before that point, and I’m sure the author can still write a half decent story even after that, but this is where I jump ship. <<less

This story defies the heavens with its humor. I seriously have laughed in real life more times than I can count while reading this.

A very lighthearted cultivation story, with a shameless MC, a shameless master, a righteous sect that is actually righteous. It's all awesome, I cannot recommend this enough to those who like humorous stories.

The main character is transmigrated from another world. He is utterly confident in his genius and skill due to him believing he is the main character. He succeeds a 100% of the time, and in my opinon it would be more interesting if he failed more. The comedy in this series is a bit of a parody of wuxias, as he repeats observations about the tropes in wuxia web novels that nobody else understands.


The author manages to try a lot of original ideas such as food eating battles, which... more>> make the novel a slightly more refreshing read. However so far the novel has not really managed to create any tension, the story has been more like a long series of gags. Which does not mean the story has not been serious, its just the main character has never really struggled for anything, and the about every conflict has jokes thrown into it. If the author actually creates some tension in the story, then this could be one pretty good novel, however until then its just going to remain a 8/10 for me.

However the author manages to create some interesting side characters than have more than one dimension which is a rarity for xianxia/wuxia novels, so I applaud the author for that. I think a lot of readers come into this novel expecting BTTH or MGA, which this novel obviously is not. So the rating is honestly lower than I think this novel deserves, at 3. 8/5 stars its criminal. I think the novel deserves something around 4. 5/5 stars if you consider how inflated the ratings are on this website. (Lol that BTTH has higher ratings that this) This novel is closer to gintama than a traditional cliche xianxia.

I've checked out the manhua and the anime, and I think the novel is much better I guess. Especially the MC. I don't know if this is because my image of MCs in novels are perfected therefore different from it's manhua counterparts, but I just think that the MC on the manhua and the anime is very annoying to look at. Well, we're still at c8, but from what I've seen, I think my perfected MC in the novel will hopefully not be as annoying. At least I won't see... more>> the bastard smug on his face. *Cough*

Well anyway, about the novel, I guess all I can say for now is that it's really funny. The dialogues, which were heavily changed on the manhua and anime, just makes you slap your face so hard. I'm not too sure yet, but I think the MC compares the world to more like of that of a game I guess? At least the entrance exam thing part.

Well anyway, things look very promising, I will be following the story from now on.

I guess that's all, peace out <<less

This is a kind of sitcom: Xianxia edition.

While it does suffer from the usual "power up/training" syndrome of the Xianxia genre, it has plenty of inter-personal relationship added into the mix.

MC is a big troll transmigrated into the world of immortals, and he manages to end up with an even bigger troll as his teacher.

The MC is a troll~~~

... more>>

Not really a spoiler, but he's clearly a dude that got transported over from "our" world. A hardcore gamer/adventurer who plans out everything almost perfectly. His one fail so far was hilarious though.


He's confident and has the brains to be so. He's the type that helps his people become epic. So far, Wang Lu isn't OP, he's just strong in a different way. Lots of strategic planning and trickery.

His interaction with his Master is hilarious. They're not Master and Disciple in the traditional way.

The important characters are not flat. They're interesting and different.

The sect elders are funny~~~ <<less

Fun, through the elders of the sect are annoying. The MC is confident and funny. For those that dont want to read there is an anime.
