To date, this one has the most basic world building I've ever seen. There's no interdependency between its inhabitants. There's no believable reason about (1) why monsters don't wreck havoc in immediate vicinity when people capable of hunting them is numbered and unorganized, (2) why thousand years old spirit always in supply to be hunted by the so-called talented spirit master, (3) why the only education establishment presented only nurture combat skills.

Each entity is isolated from one another. No dynamic. This make the talent and skill supposedly possessed by characters is difficult to be appreciated. Characters may develop until they became the strongest, but if their strength doesn't have influence to the world they live in, I couldn't care.

Characters are drawn impossibly pretty, costumes are very fashionable and far from practical, bullying is a normal tendency (if you're insulted you fight, if you're strong you beat the shit out of the weak), use of strict power level to show characters' strength (Ugh, pathetic. You didn't use game setting!) pacing is a wreck, translator submit to the spur of the moment in their choice of word. You can say author's imagination runs wild and his editor is asleep. If you're not grade schooler, move on.

Against popular belief, the novel is NOT way better than this manhua. In all sense, this manhua has better pacing. I feel like I'm wasting my time over the endless nuance in all the power level B.S. and bitter details in the novel that are nicely skipped over in this medium.

The manhua does shift plot details around often in the timeline but the main points are all there. The only things that are truly different (as of chapter38) are the sexual references and innuendos. Good examples are Oscar and Fatty not being so innocent as portrayed in this manhua.

If you enjoy reading about people masturbating over power levels and going over and over about "how is his level is so big when he's this young?!?" then the light novel is for you. OR if you've caught up with the manhua translations and are too impatient to know more about the plot... Just a heads up though, 40 chapters (~5,000 words each) in the light novel is still behind 38 chapters of this manhua. Pretty crazy how much fluff is thrown in the LN.

This manhua adaptation skips a lot of the events in the novel or pointlessly rearranges many of them. Some of the characters act and behave erratically as a result and you can clearly notice that the sequence of events feel unnatural. The biggest issue is the female lead, Xiao Wu is a VERY likable character in the novel version, but in this manhua version she just comes across as insufferable, arrogant and needy. Almost everything is better presented in the novel version. That aside, the art is good (colour) and many of the novel's excellent elements are still intact despite the butchering.

...the novel is way better IMO, and the manhua fast forwards a lot.. also the story is different, and is better told in the novel.
Not everything is bad though, especially the art, which is ok.

Clarification on the manga

Everything essential you need to know is there I think. The reason why the public gets exited too as well as the purpose of the tournament. There are only 2 characters that are actually 14 years old around chapter 90. The rest are older...and about adds, just use add-block or something similar. If you want any further clarification or learn more about the story, please read the novel translation~

over-powered protagonist dies and finds himself in a child's body, one which shares the same name as him! His new body follow new rules compared to his old body. He no longer has his whole repertoire of martial arts at his grasps, he even finds it hard to get pass the first level of his old martial arts! He goes through the whole life thing again and found things he need to protect. He resolves to get stronger. But Dou Luo, a land foreign to him, has different rules about getting stronger.

Art 8/10, give the artist some credit, every page is in colour and he does up to several chapters each week. The character designs are non offensive. Only problem you might get, every single scans i can find online is watermarked or in low quality, sometimes both, i have given up.

Story 7/10. Gosh everything gets draggy and gets hard to read at around chapter 90. Everyone gets excited over the smallest things and the story almost seems to be dragging on forever without development. I have the highest tolerance for bullsh*t among my friends and I am already tired of reading it. The manga would probably be 300++ chapters long as so far each chapter covers about one chapter of the novel it is adapted from. Some parts are expressed in such a manner, it makes me embarrassed to even read. Imagine "getting serious over a children's card game like yu-ji-oh" type content showing up every so often, hopefully it will lessen as the characters grow up more, they are still 12-14 around chapter 90.

Background 10/10. Colourful world, with solid rules of its own. Everyone in the world Dou Luo has a "martial spirit", "military soul", I have no idea how to really translate it to make sense. The closest I can get it is Soul, hence soul land right? Everyone gets awakened to their Soul since young and those displaying spiritual powers are sent to train. Souls can be the form of animals, weapons, armor, even miscellaneous objects like the protagonist's "blue silver grass", akin to the common weed in the fictional world. People with spiritual powers can train to achieve higher levels of spiritual powers, every ten levels they have to go hunt a spirit beast to obtain its soul halo and new abilities.

Characters 8/10. Tang San is a non-offensive character... if not for how overpowered he is, and how he keeps astonishing me with how overpowered he is. The number of freebies fate hands him is too much, you would almost suspect he is the author's relative. The other characters are more balanced, they each have deep character development and likeable personalities.

Overall 7/10. If you are out of manga to read, can read Chinese, does not mind watermarks, you can give this a shot. There are just too many difficulties in the process of enjoying this piece, not to mention China's unfriendly internet, bombarding me with stupid advertisements and slowing my manga from loading, not to mention their internet is already not strong to start with. Though this is just a preliminary judgement since I am just at chapter 90+ (the rate it is going it will finish at around 300 chapters). I hope everyone will give this manga a chance!
