In his past life, although too weak to protect his home when it counted, out of grave determination Nie Li became the strongest Demon Spiritist and stood at the pinnacle of the martial world. However, he lost his life during the battle with the Sage Emperor and six deity-ranked beasts.

His soul was then brought back to when he was still 13 years old. Although he's the weakest in his class with the lowest talent, having only a red soul realm and a weak one at that, with the aid of the vast knowledge which he accumulated from his previous life, he decided to train faster than anyone could expect. He also decided to help those who died nobly in his previous life to train faster as well.

He aims to protect the city from the coming future of being devastated by demon beasts and the previous fate of ending up destroyed. He aims to protect his lover, friends, family and fellow citizens who died in the beast assault or its aftermath. And he aims to destroy the so-called Sacred family who arrogantly abandoned their duty and betrayed the city in his past life.

Story is Great, However.

The story is definitely enthralling and is worth a read, especially the manga version. The translated novels are a bit....awful.

However, if the manga catches up to the book, some may not enjoy the plots holes that the author allows to develop. Made it very hard to keep reading. Be aware of that going in.

There are also a lot of "sudden" and "random" events that just spring out of nowhere consistently and a lot of repeated phrases.

If you are into OP MC's or ones that are looked down on but are really strong. THIS IS FOR YOU. if you don't like that then its a hit or miss. Chapters are really short but has a decent amount of them (Can finish in one sitting though. Its not the best (time travel, another world story) out there but is far from the worst. Has a decent story so the LN might be better but if your like me and not really into LN then this will do. HOPE THIS HELPED!!!!!!!!!!

"God, I hate it when the MC is an ordinary person that struggles against adversity." If you have those thoughts, this series might be just for you. This MC is a supernatural genius that inherits the knowledge of his previous 1000+ year life. Spells, incantations, alchemy, ancient languages, economics, martial arts, and pretty much anything else imaginable is known at a higher level than everyone else. All these blessings could be enjoyable if the MC wasn't a condescending twat. It's strange... somehow the MC feels pathetic despite all the flat side characters constantly reassuring me about how great he is.

i gave the other works of the same author (Rebirth of The Thief) a perfect rating because it is perfectly matches with my interest. this series however, used too much fantasy/magic settings so i give it a 9. the drawing and the plotline itself reminded me of Naruto, but this one is better. Because the "naruto" in here is actually the genius one (thanks to the previous knowledge of hardwork) and the "sasuke" in here is the moron one (because he is talented yet conceited, but relying on other people (his clan) instead - just like what sasuke would have done if his clan wasnt massacred in the first place). If the present Hokage-Naruto were sent back to his Genin academy time and there is no tailed beast inside his body, then this series is what you will get. The main character in this isnt overpowered from the very start, or stealing energy from some godly creature that was "given" to him since birth. the main character is very weak and very poor, but he changed his destiny thanks to his knowledge and patience. i recommend that you read the novel version first then the manhua, because the manhua isnt very detailed and lacking in various bits and pieces. and then you can appreciate how beautiful Xiao Ning'er really is! xD

The main hero succeeds not because of his wits, but because everyone else make poor decisions, i.e., are morons. The dialogue is poorly written and full with fantasy garble.

I'm a bit disappointing so far, the premise is interesting but that's so far the extent of it. I get that he has his past life memories but this takes it to ridiculous proportions and that's why the main char is very boring, he perfect in all sense, has ridiculous memory, has courage, knows infinite knowledge of, spirits, cultivation, alchemy, martial arts, archery; he can even sweeten any girl, and so on, no flaw... BORING! Oh and I forgot, it seams he doesn't even need to sleep, yay. Just imagine, this guy remembers everything he ever learned... does anyone even remember what he learned in school to that extent? what you read in any book? So we also have to add perfect recall, genius and hardworking to his flawless self. Also, it seams it's going the harem route.
Actually he does have a flaw and that's also another reason why I dislike the MC. In the beginning, he was arrogant but still forthcoming, he helped his friends and treated them well, same for family and potential allies and for the most part hr was only disrespectful and pedantic against those he had a bone to pick and even then he measured himself since he knew he was still weak and vulnerable, after 90ch or so, arrogance has become his main characteristic, he's even a prick with the lord of the city, the father of his loved one... likewise, I think I read him say "thank you" once or twice and as for sorry, not even once (actually only once but he wasn't really apologising). I find this attitude incredibly annoying, being an ass is justified because he's the MC? and it irritates me even more so since he's not a 14 year old kid, adding up his age he's over 200 years old apparently (not sure thou) so acting like a hotblooded teenager does not make sense
It's still entertaining so I'll have to see how the author decides to progress with it, I just hope something other than showing the mc is awesome takes place or this is doomed imo.

Based off Novel

This is mainly for the guy calling this a Mary Sue Naruto Fan-fiction. You sir, are one of a few closed minded people that just probably thinks everything is first originally a manga that gets adapted into anime. This is a Chinese Manhua based off a novel. Better get that thought of it being a fan-fiction out of your head because the story isn't even close to similar to Naruto. It is, in my opinion, that it is similar to other novels such as the ones BlueTear73 listed. However, I will agree with other reviewers that the art is similar.

Aside from my rant, I enjoy the manhua very much. Chapters are extremely short though, so I recommend reading it once it hits 100 or something. It's at a pretty decent amount right now, so I'm content.

If you think most of the characters from here don't look like Naruto characters then I don't know what to tell you, I'm not saying it's bad and I'm not even a fan of Naruto to begin with, but I will admit that the character designs are a BLATANT rip off of Naruto ones (well some of them at least)

People keep saying this is rip off Naruto.
1.) The story is not even remotely close to Naruto.
2.) The Character does not even look like Naruto.

Maybe because of "Color Hair"? Orange?

A guy even saying girl copy hinata..Hinata doesnt even have Purple Hair smile
