I don't normally like cultivation / wuxia / xianxia novels with their fake mana fisticuffs, exaggerated arrogant asshole characters, unnecessarily flamboyant ranking systems, and general template of "looked down on > miracle encounter > offend everyone > convenient mid-battle power-up with local lord / sect leader > now stronger than everyone in the area > move to new area and be weakest again > repeat".
This story is nothing like any other cultivation novel I've read before, even the other satire / parody novels. This one is actually good!
The MC is kind of arrogant but like a 1 compared to the average wuxianqian MC being a 10, which is refreshing, and it's also portrayed well and fits her instead of the forced or exaggerated feeling I get from normal cultivation novels. The inclusion of SCP stuff is really interesting and I enjoy seeing how Jing can mess with everyone's common sense so casually, though I do have a complaint about that below. I like the diversity of the other characters as well; those who had any notable amount of screen time are slowly being fleshed out in contrast to the general mob of sect members who very much fit my cultivator stereotype and make a nice background against which the other characters can stand out.
I would rate 5 stars if two things are changed:
f**king love this SCP novel
it's got a lot of your common place issues with these kinds of novels, such as the writer giving the MC an item then later forgetting about it. But honestly I'm drunk half the time so what does my opinion matter on that front.
This is my first time doing these but I feel comfortable enough to say that if you have zero interest in SCP's but enjoy cultivation even a tiny bit - maybe even if you just like a strong anti-hero (ain't done much evil but defo not purely good) female MC - you stand a strong chance of enjoying this story.
While the pacing can be slow in places it's never to the point of stalling as tends to be popular with stories of all varieties. The characters of the main cast are also interesting enough to each have their own fans (though it may lead to you disliking certain characters that is also the nature of the beast) but the main character Jing will be your make or break.
I personally f**king love her and I can say for sure based on ratings and readers a lot of people will agree with me - Jing is amazing. She's strong and honestly overpowered but it's not to the point where she becomes a Mary Sue (everyone also doesn't love her spoilers). She does face serious challenges at some point that can make you wonder how she gets out of a situation while the solutions don't seem forced; to me at least.
As for the grammar and english - it's better than me since DeadBeats probably actually does a second check without relying on their auto correct leading to some horrible misuse of certain words due to autocorrect cocking up (lul).
As a summary,
if you want to read a story about a sadistic girl not caring about what anyone else thinks and doing what she wants/thinks is best for her enjoyment while developing to actually be human then go ahead and enjoy.
The prologue is quite absurd and would make u think "ah here we go again with another OP brainless MC", but once u got pass that, it's a very fun read. The MC is protective of her subordinates, but other than that she does things quite unpredictably following both her oen desires and the system missions, morals be damned.
It's a campy cultivation novel equivalent of an 80s slasher horror flick - lots of corny and bold situations and gore, lots of things that would not fly for a more serious work, but it all works here, because we (the readers) didn't come for serious plot and character development, we came for... Well, this. Super exaggerated clichés with faces slapped left and right generously sprinkled with overly flamboyant fights. It's a comfortable novel to read.
This is a decent story at first. But, after a few chapters it becomes extremely dark and the main character is shown as a violent psychopath. If you don't mind that type of dark horror story, then give it a read. This is definitely not the type of story for me though.
The Novel is an amazing read, the content strings together a bunch of cliches and makes it turn out in a completely different manner making the book fairly fun to read. The author doesn't really do Gacha in a manner you would expect from the title, in fact, it's more of a normal system based novel you see anywhere else, but ain't focusing on at all making the MC appear as if they focus on their own power instead of a System which I highly appreciate. This book actually showcases somethings that aren't really touched upon in a Xianxia, like say hiding your power as an evil protagonist that's cultivating a group that is subordinated to you, whilst you play the meek weak black female protagonist that's very rare to see in and of itself. The novel is a great read, and since I saw that no one made a review, that I would lmao.
The stuff is fun to read. The only reason It's not five stars is cause of the 'pleasure' 18+ chapters. Normal, just some pleasure from pain is fine, but the fact it's s*xual makes me annoyed.
Also, really didn't need all that wan qing message pushing. I get it, transgender, don't care, move on.
At first I thought that this story was a bit slow with how the characters were being developed, but in time I turned to love the relationship building and nice pace of writing.
While I do wish that the main character, Jing, was focused on a bit more in perspective I am still shocked that this author can keep up with so many books with 100+ chapters, and still be able to use each described/introduced characters perfectly
The story started out strangely to me, but very quickly got me interested. I find myself reading the new chapters as soon as I see them. In my opinion, this is a great novel and worth the click.
