Good for the most part

A decent manhua, interesting MC, interesting teachers and a few other decent chars, comedy is good and the story is like many other similar godhood ascension/martial arts manhuas and manhwas but presented a little better than most of those, maybe except for Yaosenshi. Sadly, the second arc, the part where the students decend to the lower world sucked imo and almost dropped it there, 3º arc is better.

As for the previous comment, I don't know what MondoX read but it doesn't seam to be this manga, slice-of-life does not properly belong here, there is a lot of dialogue yet there is training and fighting in abundance later on. Actually the little fighting in the first arc was very refreshing imo. Also, unless I missed something (which I don't think so, checked) the main char is not a reincarnated soul and when the main char goes to the world below what ModoX says doesn't happen... so yeah, not sure what he read.

Slice-of-Life story

It started decent, so I kept on reading expecting the story to get better. However, it did not get better and made me wonder if there was a plot to the story. Conflict or tension is almost non-existent. When I believed, there was going to be a conflict between sects, it turned to be only a personal matter between individuals, which was handled quickly.
As for the mc, most of the time he spent training or having someone explain training. The one attribute the mc was most overpowered was his intelligence, plus he is a reincarnated soul. But, when he went to the mortal world, he was outsmarted by a mortal sect, then he had to ask one of his many masters for help in dealing with the situation. An immortal, reincarnated mc, with the backing of a big sect, with several masters needs help in dealing with a mortal sect. I think this is a first in manhua and Chinese light novels.
A tag that would best describe this story would be slice-of-life, with comedy. From other better options, somehow this manhua/light novel was adapted to anime. Maybe the reason is being adapted to anime is because it is easier to animate, because not much is going on in the story.
