As the review says Chu Feng is a ruthless to the point of being a sociopath, but like Fist of the North Star the people he kills without batting an eyelid are in no way portrayed sympathetically they are all just mwahaha villains who will kill and attack people for not much reason. At least the MC waits until they offend him to attack. You get the feeling that the world itself doesn't really care about morality as the people cheering for him where cheering for the antagonist and deriding him before he proved he was stronger than them. Likewise his friends are also usually shown to be just as much ruthless sociopaths as he is.

Other than that it's a pretty generic, simple series where the MC is a typical shounen protag 90% of the time with odd exception of the aforementioned ruthlessness. Really the only reason why anyone should read this is because of the MC's sadistic nature because otherwise it's pretty bland. People that don't like their MC killing people have no business reading this or any title in the Xianxia/Xuanhuan genre.

trigger warning: As for the rape he has done it three times out of the 1400+ chapters currently translated. Sure three times is three times too many, but the guy done worse things to people before the third one happens rather than appalled you'll probably be laughing since out of all the murders, genocides, and tortures the second rape scene is the only action that gave him genuine remorse. The third rape scene happened because "his torture methods would not be effective on her" so he had to take back his oath to never rape again to effectively torture her to payback the brutal torture she put him through the previous chapters. Compare this to the 8-9 entire families (men, women, children, pets) he wiped out without a care and you realize the rape scenes are blown out of proportion in comparison.

I am going to be blunt, the MC is quite hot blooded. That makes for a high paced, morally greyish plot. The title says it all, martial god asura, key word, asura. Now this novel naturally paints the MC in a slightly better light than he is. And because he is strong and confident, he attracts ladies. Now if you can get past the rather simple plot, completely action based pacing and lack of morals by all characters ( say for a few people, very few) you will have an alright time. If you can't, don't bother. Some people give a poor review, but that is simply because they could not suspened their disbelief (a key point to fiction) and often let their personal bias effect their reviews. Objectively speaking MGA is alright. It is not spectacular, the writing is alright, the author does occasionally foreshadow, and also slows down the pace for rather important plot points, but other than that it is go go go. Making the plot advancement seem a bit inorganic, and artificial. I would rate this about a 3 or 3.5. 4 is really pushing it, 1 is just really a bias by others. It isn't completely trash, so I don't think a 1 is fair, even if you didn't like it. It goes without saying you shouldn't read any one the 1 reviews as they are incredibly biased, and really paint the novel far worse than it has.
Honestly give it a try, by chapter 100~ you will know if you like or not.
As by then, the MC is pretty set in his ways.

when I read the reviews, I got curious about this LN. so I decided to give it a try.
it started out as any other xianxia. useless mc that has no talent. got bullied by arrogant jackass. suddenly finds a hack and turns the table around.
after this the story diverge from other LN. You see after mc gains power he becomes 10 time worse scumbag than those who previously bullied him. his arrogance starts up almost all of his altercations.
I don't know about other readers, but when I read a story with a protagonist. I expect to connect with the mc. when he falls down I sympathise with him. when mc triumphs, I cheer fow him.
in mga, I don't connect with the mc at all and neither did I wanted to. instead I kept hoping for mc to die a very painful death every chapter. but since the author won't be killing the mc. I dropped the LN.
maybe I will pick up the epilogue. to see if my wish gets fulfiled or not?

A Cultivation Odyssey..   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Martial God Asura gets a worse reputation than mostly anything I've encountered in recent times, and it's all over a few generic genre tropes. Xuanhuan is all about cultivation in an world much more unforgiving than ours, if you want Shounen battles than read Japanese LN's.

First off, no reincarnation in this novel. This is a story of someone growing up with great power and a plethora of enemies along the way, albeit quite a few are made by him. This shows as the character grows up along the way with the reader, either battle wise, common sense or worldly desires, you see the bullied kid, the rash hot-blooded teen, and the more calm headed mid twenties expert. The foundation for the cultivation as well the the world building is some of the most solid I've read in the genre. Names translate smooth and these never get too chaotic in the upper tiers.

He may be considered ruthless, but he is a kid that could kill with a flick of the wrist and I know MANY people today would be worse than this kid with his type of power. Our ancestors were worse than this kid, read history and you will read truly gruesome stuff. This is a world with no technology or science, In our age it's unacceptable but 200 years ago it was commonplace, so quit looking from inside the box all day.

Chu Feng, our MC was a kid born in the upper realms with what seems to be quite the doting father, he wanted his son a great path in a tough world so tweaked his bloodline. Which inadvertently got them kicked out of the realm, and he made a plan to send his son to a weak area to quietly work his way stronger. MC unravels his family's past while the story goes on, all the while killing the people who've wronged him and his friends, also meeting a few females. It's not for the weak hearted as the aforementioned rape or the tragedies that strike our MC while he forges his path through an unforgiving world. A tale filled with beasts, spirits, humans, and gods, and one guys path towards ascension.

It may not be the best LN I've read but top 2 Xuanhuan novel for sure, and one that's actually helped me get a a firmer grasp of China's view of Multiverse and cultivation as it's structured that well. As not only enjoying was enough, helping me enjoy future novels surprised even me and reason I fully recommend this novel.

Decent read.

This one is very hard to rate. So before doing so, I'll address the elephant in the room. Rape.

You may have gathered already from the various reviews and enraged posts that this novel includes several rape scenes. I'm also quite shocked by the latest one. They seem pointless too. There's just something wrong with author's head. At first he tried to explain or justify the need for it. Lately it's a simple "they deserve it".
I won't defend the author, nor any of the situations in question. This is a fabricated story, so I don't take it to heart.

Is it as apalling as people make it out to be? Sure. But I do question this kind of view as well. So endless killings, mass murder, torture, mutilations are okay, but at rape you draw the line? At one point he eats a person alive. You can condemn the character and author all you want, but don't draw the line at rape. It pales in comparison to the cruelty and gore involved in this story. Therefore complaining about just one such element isn't rational.

As should be obvious at this point the whole setting and world depicted are pretty grim. The story is driven by pointless slaughter, vengeance and crude violence. You have to be thick-skinned for this one.

It can be enjoyable and exciting at times. Mostly however - and I do have to point out - it's using a simple trick by means of power-ups to create a false sense of excitement. There's not one story arc that is memorable for its writing or twist. You're being fed the same theme/trope over and over again. The old and already conquered villains/antagonists tend to blend together to a kind of blur, as they're all pretty much the same. Basically disgusting evil person doing evil deeds and far stronger than current MC level until he powers up enough by finding a legacy/technique/skill/item while overcoming some test or trial by way of plotshields to raise his power so he can slaughter [put current antagonist here] and his whole family/clan/sect.
This is what this novel is about. There is no grey area. The antagonists are evil, so MC is just by punishing them. Be it by humiliation, torture, mutilation, slaughter, rape, cannibalism or worse. This is probably some unsolved psychological trauma of the author at work here.

Anyhow I'm still rating it decent. That false sense of the weak triumphing over evil powerful villain? Well it's enjoyable.

Mostly all of these Chinese novels are based on the law of the jungle and chaos. You can get away with everything as long as you have the power to do so,now imagine what happens?

This is a regular satisfying novel. It has revenge taking, ruthless killing, plot armor, sex scenes, power ups, awesome fights, some good quotes. Basically everything you want in a good novel.
To dive deep into a different world adventure in the eyes of the MC and enjoy when he takes revenge against some arrogant people or stealing from the strong and laughing at them.
It is pure adulterated fun.

Some would say this novel is bad because of the plot holes or rape and a many other things, but in my opinion it's very low key compared to any psychological manga you can find out there and I would even go as far as saying it is pretty Vanilla compared to some stuff I have seen.
Just take it with a pinch of salt and give it also it is important to remember: this is fiction, Don't take it so hard.
You should form your own opinion by reading an ark or two in order to decide for yourself, your personal opinion.

I almost did not give this novel a chance, because there were some comments about the MC being a rapist and ruthlessly murdering for no reason. Luckily, I somehow read it and it was nothing like it was described. First, the MC has many reasons why he kills, the enemies themselves are evil and arrogant that deserved to die. I was actually angry at times when he would let enemies live, and of course the enemies would come back and try to kill the MC, again. The first rape scene, both the MC and female were set-up. The MC was drugged, which turned him into a sexual predator and the female had her powers restricted so she could not fight back. The second rape, there was two females that set him up twice. First, they wanted to cause trouble to the MC by having a third party fight him. Then, the females drugged the MC so one female could benefit from having sex with the MC to take responsibility afterwards. The other female was acting innocently during both set-ups, but she still a hand both times. Both should have been killed, but the MC decided to do something, and raped one of them.

@raptorfalcon "He does not go out of his way to cause trouble" if you don't seriously read this novel, please get out of here, i hate readers who read only the superficial part of this novel where MC seems a good guy but i hate more those readers who didn't read seriously. MC create many troubles uselessly because of his own arrogance and it's something obvious, many readers who likes or dislikes this novel noticed it, and you trying to said he don't cause troubles? Unless you're don't read seriously this novel and skip many lines or you're just a blind guy.

"As for those of you stuck on that rape scene...."
"That" rape scene? what rape scene are you talking about? For those who still didn't read the novel they will think there have only a rape scene in this novel lol, by the way if you think there have really one rape case or two in this novel, you're already brainwashed or just a simple-minded dude (yep i don't think girls/women will read this kind of novel)

"Turns out he actually saved her life by doing it. Also, he really goes out of his way for the sake of saving her and in some way make it up to her."

This is obviously just a shield plot to protect MC image, if the author don't put a good explanation to turn the bad to good, how many people will drop this novel? If he at least put some bullshits explanation, at least simple-minded reader will think "oh, he saved her! He is still a good guy!" and it's how author manage to erase the bad impression of the MC in your mind.

For me seriously read this novel it's something like notice Jia Yunfeng sudden disappearance after the chapter 50 in Ancient city arc, author suddenly forget this character.

@MondoX "First, the MC has many reasons why he kills" and many times those reasons are created because of him, he provokes many powerful people uselessly and later he kill them when he is become enough strong and from a third person's pov MC is also "evil and arrogant that deserved to die".

"he would let enemies live, and of course the enemies would come back and try to kill the MC", of course it's to make readers feel something like "MC must kill them all" or "it's because of them that MC is become what he is now", in short for those readers who just follow the flux it's become "MC is wise"

" The first rape scene, both the MC and female were set-up. The MC was drugged, which turned him into a sexual predator and the female had her powers restricted so she could not fight back."
Yeah he is "innocent" and that's why he didn't give a sh*t about her feelings at this moment and said something like i'll take you as my wife along your little sister lol.. moreover it's set-up stupidly by her father and her father choose him a guy pop out from nowhere just because he is a "genius" when normally there have surely many powerhouses who trying to marry with her for a long time (she is n°1 beauty after all). It's obviously a forced plot. Same thing about this "pseudo" second rape scene, he is "innocent", he will always be innocent, he isn't his fault if he rapes them lol... By the way the real second rape is "when the MC had abduct a girl that he insulted and let her raped by an asshole.." (from sufod01's comment)

I'm not sure why so many negative reviews about this series and the main character. Chu Feng is actually quite simple. If you are kind to him, he will repay with kindness and complete loyalty. If you are an arrogant POS, he will eventually erase you and anything that has your genes... Unfortunately, this novel's world is full of arrogant characters that become proof of his new strength. He does many good deeds, but is also completely ruthless to those that piss him off. He does not go out of his way to cause trouble, but when trouble finds him, he brings the hammer down without mercy.

Is he a hero? NO! This is NOT a story about a good guy at all! Is he bad? NO! He just rarely finds people with any kind of moral code and his mentality and temper reflects the fact that he is still a teenager.

Personally, I think his personality is quite more realistic than those goody two shoes MCs that let their enemies live just for them to come back later as either stronger enemies or allies...

As for those of you stuck on that rape scene....

Turns out he actually saved her life by doing it. Also, he really goes out of his way for the sake of saving her and in some way make it up to her.
