    On chapter 156, like it so far My only complaint is when author use anime and other novel character as reference or for jokes, sometime it ruined that particular moment. So please stop if you're still doing it..

    I really kept wonder how people managed to read this without getting cringed or annoyed... Problem solved... Kinda happy i dropped it around 70chs instead of reading a few hundred chs to get a few good arcs and deal with an incomplete ending

      Well, all arcs got completed but it got more and more cringe and bullsh*tty in the latest arc, especially the power scaling. That went off the charts.

    i look up on webnovel (the original site) to find why he would say something like dropping it and one of the comments said that it was because he been getting comments like "it so cheesy" and "trash" and other similar comment every day for every chapter even though he had to write all the chapter even when his health was bad, that why he would rather drop this novel and work on his new novel about vampire and see how it goes

      You can't say. A lot of people reading without checking the author's name. But they certainly would lose a big part of their fanbase by dropping a novel instead of trying to find why people are trash talking it... It could have turned better since an Arc was finished and he could put a note alongside some lore things were he fix the power scaling by bringing it down. Like, for example, how the mmorpg world of warcraft cut damage numbers down from millions back to thousand just to make the experience better. But idk...

    It's a good novel, the world building is done and there is a little bit of romance at a later chapters but: The power scaling is over the moon, the author exaggerate a lot, fights between two people start taking place at a scale of kilometers, literally two guys punch and 10km area get destroyed, it's so hard to imagine and quit funny instead of being serious. The author talks a lot, most chapters are useless talk that can be cut down but this is very typical of anything with a cultivation-like story. The author use exclamations to an annoying way. You'd lose count how many times he use the words 'flabbergasted gobscmacked' in a chapter. The antagonists are all typical courting death brainless people except for the big bosses who are smart and manipulative. But, the story is actually fun to read until he reach the point where the power scaling goes from using meters to using kilometers. Definitely recommend it if you like an anti-hero and not a cringe edge lord.
