As of from the starting not even able to understand what is happening, as of now it has 497 chapters and there are soo many loopholes even though author might think it is good he is digging his own grave by doing so(the starting plot) as by not sticking to the MC's main power and by providing many, even the story is working at a better pace as compared to before it is still a big mess, no powers explained and so many names that you might go confuse who was which character if it was the starting i barely would have given it 5 just because it has regular updates otherwise........ but it is now better so if you want to read it from the starting then you need a lot of patience and don't dwell too much into the plot

This manhua is great! ... If you love having no idea what's happening whatsoever and having nothing explained. I've heard people compare this to TDG which is laughable. This shit is garbage compared to that.

One night, after being immensely mistreated and humiliated by a family steward, Lou Zheng gets enraged in Apotheosis Manga. To take revenge on his family, Lou Zheng decides to burn all the family documents.While doing so, he ends up burning a hidden, magical book left by his father that reveals a divine technique, elgulfs the reader and turns them into an extremely skillful fighter. With his new abilities, Lou Zheng decides to master them and use them to rescue his younger sister, Lou Yan, that he loves very much.He encounters various hurdles as he embarks on this journey as his own family is trying to stop him.

Wish the novel had an english translation for proper judgement

The comic is complete trash and unreadable as it expects people to already know what it is talking about, but I'm not sure if it is that way in the novel so it is unfair to say the series itself is bad as it might just be the comic creator's fault.

Another terrible cultivation manhua

Expecting originality from Wuxia and Xiaxia is naive, still there are ways to go about presenting an unoriginal story in a fresh way and man I can say that I have read exactly the same introduction to a story way to many times to forgive the approach. Add to that that this is a complete sum of nonsense filled with instant gratification BS where the author doesn't explain crap, expects you to understand what he's talking about when introducing things for the first time and there is a complete lack of coherence and cohesiveness when progressing in the story and I can say that this along with Mystical Realm are the two worst manhua/manhua of the cultivation type I've read so far, to be honest if it weren't for the translation notes this would be completely incomprehensible.
Read 10 more chapters and (I doubt it changes later) I really don't expect anything from this one, the translator does say thou that the manhuaka is skipping whole plots in the manhua so who knows, maybe the novel is decent? there is no translation so I can't judge.

Tried once more since it's very popular, my conclusion is that the MC is just a spoiled retard that has no power and no backing yet keeps searching for trouble every where he goes, as if he didn't have troubles enough already, if one is objective the MC can be labeled as a disgusting person and if he weren't for his mega thick plot armor he would be dead and of his own making. Just think, if he weren't the MC he'd be one of the bullies that would get blown to pieces for overestimating himself. I'll go further and say he's actually a piece of sh*t, imagine this, you have a property in the mountains, this guy come across it, when the security tell him this is private land he kills them, he then hacks into your alarm system and goes into your house without permission, when you ask him to leave he gets angry because you are presumptuous and when you try to force him out he kills you and all your family members that are weak then when your strong relatives come he flees but not before stealing half your fortune... and all because he was curious when he was told to keep out... and by the way, he holds a grudge on you because you tried to kill him and didn't let him steal more things... that's essentially what happens in one arc. The fact the the author and MC present him as a good person is unforgivable and him speaking as if he holds the moral ground is in extreme irritating, this is truly an unreadable manhua. The translator says the MC in more likable than the guy from God of Martial Arts, I utterly disagree, he's at least not a hypocrite and don't cause problems if he has no reason, the fact that he wants revenge on half of the cultivating world is a different business.

Unreadable garbage

Each 10-15 page chapter of this tries to compress 5-6 chapters of a novel into it. It is incomprehensible nonsense. The protagonists technique actually seems interesting but this is entirely incoherent.
