Before you read this novel, there's a very important question you have to ask yourself, which is whether or not it's okay to kill people. If you read the first chapter of the novel you see that in his previous life he used to be the Immortal Venerable and the lord of the entire universe. You see, the lord of the universe is a kind of special position where only one person in the ENTIRE universe can take. So think for a bit, how do you think he became the lord of the universe? You done thinking? It kind of goes like this
Chen Fan: I'm the lord of the universe.
Some random planet: I disagree
Chen Fan: Crush planet
Some random galaxy: I disagree
Chen Fan: Stomps on galaxy
some random family: i disagree
chen fan: annihilates family
some random sect: i disagree
chen fan: exterminates sect
some random race: i disagree
chen fan: race disappears
some random old immortals: i disagree
chen fan: kills immortals
and repeat for about a few billion families, sects, races, planets, and galaxies.
universe: i agree
Now that you know what he was like in his previous life and he is reborn on earth what do you will happen?
SPOILER ALERT: HE KILLS A LOT OF PEOPLE
this guy kills a lot of people and if you don't like blood, do not read this book because there is a lot of blood in this book. I see 99% of the reviews are about how he is a murder and a big meanie who likes to kill people and is not a nice person. well no duh, if he was the lord of the universe in his previous life what do you think his personality is like.
killing aside, this is actually one of the best novels. in persepctive, you know almost all novels here are actually translated on qidian and actually there are a lot more novels on qidian which are untranslated and this website probably holds less than 1 percent of the novels on qidian. this novel along with emperor's domination and library of heaven's path became the 3 big kings of qidian in 2017. like there are millions of novels on qidian and this one was in the top three, this just tells you how good it is. however, the problem with this novel is that in the beginning it's really slow and just like typical chinese garbage cultivation novels with lots of face slapping. but later on like chapter 100 and beyond the novels becomes really good, the author is really talented and really good at describing a world, and he integrates the novel with lots of history and the modern world so the reader can almost feel like their in the world. many past historical figures are actually incorporated in the novel and the author gives background on what makes some countries super powerful. also the cultivation system is extremely accuracte with each level having specfic powers that different them from the level below, unlike many other novels where the mc can just defeat people 20 levels higher than them. the main thing about this novel is just that the author is really good at describing scenes that readers can easily visualize.
however if there's a problem about this novel is that the translation is almost horrible. i google translated the first chapter and compared it with this and i notices at least like 20 discrepences between the chapters. this is the same with almost all the chapters. the translator messes up almost every single cultivation term and there are many scenes that are totally portrayed incorrcetly, that i think this is obviously mtl and edited. if you're going to mtl, can you atleast use google translate because it is so much more accuracte than whatever mtl your using. if you feel like something feels weird it's 100% the translator not the authors fault and should read the google translate if a sentence feels weird which is like almost every other paragraph.
