Plundering the Heavens


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Some say he is the bad apple in a basket, that he’s rotting everything around him with disgrace and corruption.

Some say he is the biggest scum of the South Zhanbu Continent, that he’s colluding with the dark sects to cheat, steal, and commit all manner of atrocities.

Some say he is the most wanted playboy. “Lock your daughters at home to keep Fang Xing away!”

To all of those people, “That’s right, I am that big rotten apple. Any problem with that?”

This brand of anti-hero is a young orphan with poor prospects and nothing more than the keepsakes of his uncles. He plots, schemes, and orchestrates all manner of villainy in his quest for power and revenge, unafraid to live precariously and make enemies out of those he really should not.

Story said he was a anti-hero but there is barely any of that. He is selfish, greedy and a bandit, but author always try to paint him into a heroic and brave person that would charge into the most dangerous situations to help the ones he cared. I like how shameless he is, but his tricks and schemes are always found out at the end (not the really smart type, but still lucky enough to survived). MC luck is really off the chart when it comes to surviving. What I... more>> find stupid about the whole story is that everyone already started calling little devil early on. No matter how much stronger he get, that is basically the only name they ever called him. Is like no one ever called his name. Normally when you respect a strong person, meet a stranger or acknowledge a strong one, the first thing you do is at least try to politely call the person name, but here every single chapter all you hear is little devil. The guy barely did that much damage and cruelty. At most he is a bandit that barely slaughter anyone unless they are really asking for it. Some of the reaction of the so called great experts are really childish and retarded. In normal situations, MC would have died long ago duo to his rashness. If you ignore these, then story is still very funny and hilarious to read. <<less

I have read far ahead in raws (mtl) and I really enjoyed the story. The plot stays true to the description so expect some nice kicass and shameless moments. Honestly the story is a nice and the main character is pure enjoyment.

It's so good to see a protagonist being arrogant but having the power to be so. When the protagonist lacks power he schemes against his opponents. He do have his bottom line as seen in later chapters.

The translations provided by Qidian are passable but the abuse of pinyin... more>> is frustrating as it takes away the enjoyment.

All in all its an enjoyable novel. <<less

Super Good So far

-MC is a bandit and a villian yet a child, thus we can't critisize or hate him. That makes an intriguing character.
-He strives very hard to get fortune, there's no super luck or plot armor.
-And the story is good so far, hopefully it will continue this way.

MC is a little bandit, poor cultivation talent

but quick witted. The story is well paced and MC doesn't have any thick plot armor just a thick face as he's shameless and two faced not to mention

a little cruel. IMHO this isn't a bad thing at all! The MC is young but not hella wise beyond his years, he's just clever... maybe a tad bit to clever. I only read 15 chapters but the MC has quite a bit of character. This character is good in a bad way.

MC is vengeful,... more>> not one to be trifled with, 10 yrs old but cruel. He's funny and has comedic moments and I didn't stop laughing especially when he takes advantage of the rich.

He's a true underdog MC except he has two advantages. But one was gained from the 1st so its right to say he only has 1 large advantage.


MC gets 9 items from his 9 uncles all of which are useless or barely helpful

but 1. That 1 is a book that gives the MC the ability to identify spiritual items akin to game element but only gives short/curt descriptions.


MC starts from the bottom and literally stills every advantage he can. I've enjoyed it but I will stack chapters as I don't think this could be a daily read. The jokes and events happen to seamlessly and will probably flow better when read as one. That being said... I could be wrong and you'd enjoy it regardless so to each his own right? <<less

Very great novel, I really like the MC, he is a bandit, shameless and will do anything to reach his goals. He's cocky and arrogant but he has the ability to back it up, he's very decisive. Even though he's not reincarnated or has monstrous memory like Emperor's domination MC, but yet the way he schemes, robes, manipulate others, he's no better than those with cheats or reincarnated, this is his talent alone, even adult fear him and worry his growth.

... more>>

he's merely 14 years old in the story so far, and he robed a sect, destroyed their mountains, killed their precious genius disciple, and then run away with his heart content

The most hilarious yet ruthless protagonist ever. Upon reading this, I can't help but wonder; 'How is it possible to be so utterly ruthless, and humorous at the same time?'

This is the story for you, if you like a bit of snark in your character. A will to disregard normalcy, a will to enjoy life, and above all else a will to tame the currents of destiny. Unrestricted. Untamed. Unbroken.

This is the story for you, if you are tired of the cliches, and crave something new. Look no further.

This is the most lovable shameless, but also ruthless MC I've ever seen! Not afraid of fighting the world with schemes! Of cursing people in front of their faces out loud! If you don't want to save my face, then I, your grandfather, shall drop any courtesy and slap your face instead. Literally.

On top of that the flow of the story is great so it won't cause you a great headache like other shameless MCs in other novels. Meng Hao, some fatty, or other great people are 100 realms too... more>> early before claiming their number 1 shameless spot. Who else than Fang Xing would dare to rob fellow disciples in broad day, verbally abuse female disciples in front of so many people, provoke others just like arrogant young master if there's feud between them, or shamelessy steal elder's property, not to mention stuffing the food of his teacher into his mouth upon sight. <<less

This is my first time I'm giving a review and it's only because how low this novel is rated despite being one of my favorites. The plot of the novel is like a traditional xianxia story but the MC is amazing. He doesn't give a damn about ANYTHING and is absolutely humourous at times but at the same time clever and cautious when facing enemies. Well, this is too early to give a review anyway as there more than 1700 ch. But this novel absolutely deserve much more rating than... more>> it currently has. <<less

if you like MC thats good with torture this is for you! This guy is properly evil due to his upbringing as a bandit, but he never go too far (yet). The cultivation world in this novel is nothing new, which is good since you really dont want something so different since the star of the show is the MC.

I have no idea why this has so many 1 star ratings, but novel is quite enjoyable. An MC as an antihero is portrayed excellently, he robs, he cheats, he bullies, he kills, he backs down when needed and he makes mistakes that some1 would make at his age.

PTH is absolutely addicting.

Sick of hypocritical MCs? Get yourself a dose of Fang Xing. MC is like a evil version of Zhao Little Fatty from HJC. He's a villain, and he doesn't pretend otherwise. He scams, steals, blackmails, and bullies, in the most shameless and comedic manner. He's weak, with no background whatsoever, but manages to play stronger cultivators like hand puppets.

There's no lame cultivation filler (grrr I'm gonna sit in a room and cultivate until my d*ck falls off, blah blah heavenly dao blah blah meridians blah) in the... more>> chapters so far. The story so far revolves around the MC's interactions with other people, and his earnest efforts in earning scamming cultivation resources. I've read tons of xianxias, but I've never seen the combination of shameless + evil in an MC yet. Only problem with this novel is that there's not enough translated chapters yet :/ <<less

A really underrated novel.

I don't knew how can this have such low ranking while some trashy novels made it to top 100.

Well, if you're a fan of the scheming shameless thick skinned MC type like Meng Hao from ISSTH then this novel was made for you. Give it a go it's definitely worth your time.

Overnight, Plundering the Heavens went from enjoying a single 1 star rating to having twenty-six of them. I think we can conclude that at least 90% of this novel's 1 star ratings are by trolls who didn't read the story, but simply went around down-voting the TL group's releases.

It's a fantastic novel, well-written from chapter one. I honestly don't know how to break it down, because it's so good in so many ways. Well, let's try pros and cons.


-If you look at it from a distance and squint, and don’t bother to appreciate its details, you could say that it follows a common structure: a boy enters a sect, carrying a helpful artifact, and he rises up the ranks of disciples while surviving the machinations of more powerful disciples.

-A couple out-of-character and dumb moments. Out of dozens of in-character and believable moments.

MC is a young child raised by bandits, when his bandit nest is exterminated by a single cultivator he decides he must have that power and tricks his way into the "righteous" sect which sent that cultivator

MC actually behaves like a bandit, he robs but he also looks to make people his underlings and is generous to them (although still somewhat violent). He rejects the monk like lifestyle of cultivators who try to purify themselves, instead he drinks booze and eats meat (not just magical animal meat that helps cultivation,... more>> but normal fatty delicious meat that increases their body impurity level), as well as tempt many of his peers to do the same. He curses, he is rude, he is infantile, he makes stupid jokes. His behavior is intentionally jarring to that of the normal cultivators who are refined gentleman scholar-warriors, and from this contrast comes humor.

So far it is amusingly played for laughs because the MC is a child, not sure how it will develop with his age though. I can distinctly see how it could become unpleasant once he grows up. <<less

I'm on the latest translated chapter and so far it's rating is 5 to me. The story is the usual Chinese novel op character but it has it own touch that makes it a very good read. The character stay true to his personality and hasn't done anything out of the normal that would contradict himself. One of the things I hate the most about Chinese novel is the author making the character do something that's not in his character or just plain out stupid to progress the story. So... more>> far this hasn't happen yet and the novel itself is quite humorous to read. I would recommend people picking this up. I honestly prefer this over A Will Eternal. Both story is quite funny with the MC but this one doesn't make the main character so dumb just for laughs. <<less
