Best Chinese Novels ( In my opinion)
I think there is a reason that this novel hasnt made the jump from the wuxiaworld forums to the main page even after over 100 chapters have been translated, and it has nothing to do with the translation quality. [edit - apparently the jump from the forums to the website has now happened, so this line is now incorrect.
This novel suffers from the worst of the xianxia tropes on
every side of the story. Paper-thin petty antagonists populate the world. The world itself breaks any common sense rules that you may have just to push the bad story along. The main character (MC) is hardly any better, and is as shallow as his opponents. Lucky chances continuously fall from the sky with no foreshadowing or active seeking on the part of the MC.
Were somehow to believe that this family hasnt torn itself apart already? Training for a kid with better than average potential: none. Aside from teaching the MC base forms, the parents leave him to his own devices. Then, at the family competition, there is this s*upid rule of nobody is able to interfere... even when there is an obvious victor, who is in the process of causing their opponent permanent harm? This rule is there to make it seem unfair that the MC wasnt able to completely cripple their opponent with everyone watching, but all I could think about when this was being discussed was this entire family is obviously too s*upid to live.
The only believable antagonist for the beginning arc is the MCs cousin, because he is only an age seven or eight bully. Him, I can believe. His father and the grandfather are the typical one-dimensional give unfair advantages to an opponent petty antagonists. Sure, some favoritism is believable, but the author takes it to ludicrous extremes. Allow the bully kid to boast that hell cripple other children? A-Ok, and lets give him a chance to act on it. After a year has passed and the first failure has festered into enough antagonism that in their perception, the bully kid is likely to try it? Sure thing, we dont mind that either... actually we lost face last year, so that would be great!
Are all of these guys children? There is no effort by the author to pull these characters out of this cookie-cutter xianxia family villain portrayal.
MC decides to hide their potential from everyone? Why? Not really explained. Oh, sure, there is a throwaway line buried a few chapters in where it is said that showing his talent would be a calamity in some way... but thats it. Its not like the MC found an item that would be able to be taken from them. How would it be a such a detriment? This logic isnt followed up on, its just assumed that the reader will agree that since it is a xianxia novel, the MC has to conceal his ability.
And its not like the MC ever even thought about telling anyone. How much effort would it be to have had the MC actually take a chapter to actually think about the pros and cons of a few different options? If they had decided to keep quiet after considering the options of being open to the overall family, or of being open to just his father and mother, maybe it would have been acceptable. But either the author didnt think about it, or couldnt make any real plausible reason for him to keep quiet, so it gets glossed over.
Add in the MCs inability to ever take a step back and the inability and think about the consequences of his actions, and you have the perfect trifecta of s*upid MC xianxia tropes.
Now all MCs will have a certain amount of this, but a good author will either space out lucky finds so that it doesnt break immersion, or have the MC actively seek dangerous situations to find the prize at the end, or (for abilities) bring it up much earlier than the ability gets used so that it doesnt seem out of place. Now lets review this novel. Again, this is all within the first 30 chapters:
MC gets a super rare martial spirit that gets misidentified.
MC was a super awesome martial artist in their prior life, and their training of their old style has great benefits for their new style.
MC meets a smart spirit monkey companion.
MC is brought to some awesome rare fruits by said monkey.
After eating fruits, MC cleans off in a lake. The lake has a hidden cultivators cave!
In the cave is a super rare martial technique and magic swords and a super rare dimensional storage ring!
Later, the MC runs into another person with the same technique and helps him since he is really injured. He happens to be super strong.
We find out that the MC also has some technique to heal broken meridians (from his prior life I think?).
MCs lucky find in the cave means he is actually the true successor of another kingdom/family of some far away land!
So do I feel this story is completely worthless? Despite all this, I wouldnt say that. I view this like the bad free appetizer that gets put on the table at some restaurants. If you are really hungry and have nothing to read and need something to kill your time until the main meal of actually good stories? This is good enough for that, at least. Despite my qualms about the story itself, the translation work itself isnt bad.
Just sloshes back and forth between contrived fights and sudden cultivation bursts. Kind of incoherent and lacks the sense of adventure. Pretty much works like:
I dont want to say something so cruel, but this novel made me wish I was reading MGA instead, because that novel is actually probably at least several times better than this one, at least MGA kept me reading for a good 1500 chapters before finally giving up in annoyance at the forced and repetitive plot, this kept me reading for 90 half-size chapters before I almost collapsed, vomited blood and died. Thatll teach me to not trust reviews and giving it a try thinking that it might be better
than the reviewers made it out to be.
Im not going to say that hes too OP for my taste. I came here expecting him to be invincible, as the title suggests. Instead we get a MC that relies only on servants/bodyguards and does nothing himself, so I feel like hes rather underpowered instead. Not going to say its clich, because which xianxia/xuanhuan isnt clich as f*ck? Yet we still read them. I expected his luck, no issues for me there. I came here expecting faceslapping all the time and I dont feel like hes too cruel at all, which some people clearly do. I was also prepared to suspend disbelief at the plot being ret*rded and not take things seriously.
However, as we got on with the novel, I started to notice that it was getting worse and worse, that I was gradually unable to suspend my disbelief, unable to accept things and the way the author wrote the novel, because it was fundamentally ret*rded, all of it.
So, lets begin with the romance. Theres nothing much of note there yet, but we all know who will be one of the harem members and maybe a permanent stay throughout the entire novel as she powers up with plot logic more forced than pushing a fat human through a cat door. Shes currently 9, but since they first met 3 years ago, she has been clinging to him like a mentally disabled koala. She runs and hugs him, clings to him and forces him to accompany her every chance she gets and he, the mentally 27 year old MC, allows her to do so and cant say no despite clearly not being comfortable with it. I started skipping every scene with her, so it was reluctantly acceptable, but according to other comments, it will get much, much worse. His motivation to get stronger might even become the dreaded I want to save/protect this girl bullsh*t that I shiver at the thought of. Shes just too clingy and obnoxious, I feel like vomiting when I see her.
Now then, the romance wasnt that bad although it was horrible, but the worst part in this novel is actually the MC and his family, by chapter 90, I was repulsed by and hated both the MC and all his family members. The mcs family members are all tr*sh that get in the way all the time, they have no use whatsoever and is there only to show us how damn filial the MC is, how hes such a kind guy with his family first and foremost in his thoughts! He cant stop babbling about them every time he gets a treasure, every damn time he finds something nice, he instantly wants to bring it back to his family to gift a majority of it to them, despite it having great use to him. They, on the other hand, have no real use for cultivation resources and if he wants to help them, he could do so when such tr*shy resources arent useful to him anymore, but nah, hes just gifting all of it to them, he wins pills and stuff from being first in competitions and just grants all of it to the family. Then he complains about his strength and how he wants to breakthrough faster, but he keeps on giving away all of the resources he gets his hand on like some supreme-grade moron. Its like hes someone experiencing a drought and hes almost dying from dehydration, but he keeps on sending liters upon liters of water to other people despite them living in a place without any drought, where they already have all the water they could ever need. Its the actions of a full-blown ret*rd.
His family is also generally obnoxious even other than that. His mother is an emotional wreck that cries and screams 24/7 and cant wait to break down into a mess of tears and snot at everything she thinks might be dangerous. The MC is late to dinner? Shell cry. Hes fighting someone? Shell cry. Hes going out to gain experience? Shell cry. Hes outside with a super bodyguard and essentially invulnerable? Shell cry in worry. God, just die. The father on the other hand isnt crying, but hes just generally useless and pathetic. Hes a f*cking doormat to everyone and their dogs. He even forgives his brothers and father who mistreats them greatly and then he gets bloodthirsty and wants to get revenge for them when something happened. Well, hell just ask his omnipotent son for that though. The sister and brother is f*cking useless and have no personality. What made me more sick is that, during the latest chapters around chapter 90, the family are way too included in the story and theyre acting like some f*cking ideal family. Laughing, happy, sugar and flowers, the kids are running around giggling all the time, the MC is filled with warmth and happiness, I can pretty much see everyone skipping across the plains in utter glee and idiocy, like some excessively happy fairytale girl. I just hoped all of them would die so that we dont have to see them anymore and the MC can be more free. The author is really trying too hard to show us how filial and awesome he is according to chinese bullsh*t culture. I cant even believe that hell be so attached to them, he came over at the age of 17, at that point youll have already established your ego, personality, morals and everything, you wont be able to accept new people as your parents, its just as simple as that, theyd be able to reluctantly be considered as an uncle and aunt, but real family such as parents? Nah.
Then theres the thing that he seems to actively seek trouble by dressing in rags. Im also irritated that some mentally impaired person pops up every other chapter and screams at the MC like a f*cking monkey, as if he killed their whole family. This is even more ret*rded than what we usually find, none of them can think at all, they all jump the gun instantly for the slightest thing they find unpleasant. If we put them in real life scenarios, they would kill everyone in front of them at the restroom line because they dont want to wait and feel insulted because they have to. Theyll shoot the waiters and chefs at restaurants because they didnt find the food to be delicious enough. Theyll torture you to death because you said that you dont like the same tv game they do. Theyll murder your entire family because you farted in their vicinity. Theyll burn down your house because they didnt find it to be pleasant to look at. If your clothes arent to their liking, theyll call you a commoner and cripple you. Geez, theres a limit to this garbage before you have enough.
Well, Id have more to say about this, but I feel like its not necessary. Suffice it to say that this is a novel no one should read, even people with bad taste shouldnt give this more than 3/5 stars. Id give this a 1, 5/5, but since it doesnt deserve a 2, Ill just give it a 1. This isnt even good to make you fall asleep, as its not only boring and tedious to read, its extremely annoying so that you cant relax and will instead become pissed off.
Hi, just registered to help comment on this awesome novel. Please try not to believe what others said about this novel. It may be the same with other xianxia novels, but it has its own strengths. I wont spoil it, but others talk about MCs parents is not true and he doesnt sacrifice his family members, unlike other novels where familial bonds are only served in the beginning of the story and do not provide any developments to his family members. Im still looking for the similar novel which also
focuses on the familial bonds like this novel (if any of you knows about this, please by all means tell me. Thanks in advance)
Anyway, it may take a long time to enjoy this novel, but please do not mislead others. Everyone is welcome to criticize it based on your preference, but please avoid giving misleading information. Anyway, no offense to others. Lets enjoy this :D
*Small edit* Caught up to c345 and still loving this. Its been getting more and more interesting to me, especially the MCs abilities and growth. Unlike most of these MCs that stick to sort of one cultivation path and their weapon being just a sword, fists, spear or stuff like that, hes more versatile and his moves vary, which is nice. Story has gotten a lot more interesting as his strength has grown, as is the usual case for 1k+ chapter Xianxia/Xuanhuan.
Also, if youre looking for romance, this is a
VERY slight spoiler, but Im pretty sure there are just going to be like 2 love interests or something. I prefer some semblance of romance in the stuff I read and usually no full blown harem where the MC has every female instantly fall for him, so this is also a good read if you want something like that.
Ill add this to the top so people can understand my reasoning for the 5. Ive read tons of Xianxia and Xuanhuan novels. If youre like me as well, you know that theyre all VERY similar in many aspects. When you come into these novels, you shouldnt really expect something incredibly fleshed out and innovative. Emperors Domination is incredible, as is HSSB, as is Coiling Dragon and most IET novels, but they ALL follow similar patterns and you can predict how things will turn out to a certain extent. Situations repeat themselves in different ways very often, and thats not necessarily a bad thing in these novels.
Most of these have a thousand to several thousand chapters, so its not going to be very original. What truly matters, is
. This novel is very enjoyable, which is why I gave it a 5. As far as Im concerned, Invincible is AT LEAST better than a lot of others, at least at this point in time (c198). So, remember... Enjoyment is what truly matters. Try something out first. Look at the tags, not the reviews and ratings. You might hate a 5* novel and love a 3* one, and vice versa. Now, my actual review is below.
**Edit at c163** Still really good and has been holding my interest. Theres A LOT of timeskips in this novel. Although MCs cultivation is incredibly fast compared to others, it still takes a VERY long time to move to the next order in the current realm. An example (Coiling Dragon spoiler)
When Linley or others get to the higher planes, cultivation takes hundreds/ thousands of years for improvements. Even early on in Invincile, that slow rate of improvement seems like its gonna be the norm.
The MC is like Yan Zhaoge from HSSB, in that even though hes lower level, he has insanely strong loyal subordinates. There have been the typical villains and arrogant fools, but its been handled very well so far. Although HSSB is probably the best Xuanhuan currently being translated (imo), Invincible is far above a lot of the other ones atm. The raws have 2400+ chapters so I dont know how itll hold up, but if youre like me and love reading all these Xuanhuan/Xianxia novels, definitely check this out as its honestly at the higher end of this genre (so far).
The MC is super young right now, but the fact he was reincarnated helps a lot since hes not a kid, mentally. His personality and character is great so far, even if we havent seen enough to totally determine things. Definitely confident yet not arrogant. Id say currently 50% ruthless since it seems like he can hold back from executing people instantly without thinking about consequences, which is nice. Not too soft or too hard. I like how hes willing to learn things, especially from his people. Might not seem like a huge deal to most, but this MC has been one of the best Ive seen. Honestly reminds me of Forgotten Conqueror a bit.
Story has been nice so far. Pace and cultivation is pretty quick atm, but that doesnt hinder the story at all. If anything, it makes it better, especially when its been foreshadowed how damn massive the world is. The first dozen or so chapters might seems a bit annoying because the MC is so secretive, but its honestly not as bad as people make it seem.
One HUGE thing thats refreshing is that people with cultivation realms above the MC havent really appeared. Its not like the MC against the world where he offends huge f*cking powers non stop, where everyone has the power to squash him like an ant. Where all these people have the power of Mt. Tai and everyone else doesnt know the difference between heaven and earth. Its a BIG deal since that hasnt happened... And its fantastic.
Theres a bit of romance, I guess? Shes pretty likeable but theyre just kids atm, and the MC is mentally an adult... Like I said, a bit like Forgotten Conqueror if youve read it.
As for the HIDDEN ABILITIES aspect, which I assume a lot of people would worry about, like me, its not that bad and I feel like it isnt detrimental or irritating. He doesnt reveal all of his power, but enough... Trust me, its good. Like I said before, the first dozen or so chapters are the most annoying, but I think it fits. Still, dont skip some of the important introductory info in those chapters. As for if he hides things non stop, its a bit like Emperors Domination. He uses his full capability on people hes gonna kill. Hell also reveal things about himself to his people. Theres an incredibly satisfying moment when he reveals something important to two of his people... Especially satisfying since most writers chose NOT to reveal something and then I start raging really damn hard because of it.
Im not a good reviewer, but yeah... This novel is really damn good so far. Its been incredibly promising and I look forward to the day when Wuxiaworld accepts this series as an official translation.
While I was reading it, the first novel that popped up in my mind was PMG, and well, I think that most people know how bad that novel turned out to be. Why PMG though? Well, its pretty much because of the family issues as well as the whole spirit thing. The grandfathers reaction
is even almost exactly the same as the Elder in PMG. This novel is worse though because the MCs father is absolutely useless. At least the MCs father actually tried his best to defend his son as much as possible and really believe in him. In this novel, the MCs father is utterly useless. As for the Martial Spirits, I think thats pretty much self-explanatory. Even after the family issues are resolved, the issues that the MC faces are pretty much the same. Arrogant geniuses who just keep stepping up after watching a genius get beat down. I guess that really isnt anything knew when it comes to any type of web novel though. I guess one positive thing to note is that this novels MC isnt as chatty as PMGs.
when the MC finally left to venture, he just left his family alone surrounded by relatives who obviously didnt like them and who he had personally created vendettas with. Since I was going to drop the novel anyway, I just checked for the chapter where he returns to his family. When I skimmed through that chapter I wasnt even surprised that the strong big brother of the antagonist arrived and beat up the MCs father shortly before the MC himself arrived. That was coincidentally the last chapter currently translated so I dont know how hell beat up that particular family (and honestly, Im not even interested in finding out what actually happens when more chapters come out) but that last chapter added another thing which I absolutely dislike to this novel. The whole hero arrives just in time concept which happens time and time again in web novels despite the MC not even bothering to secure the safety of his loved ones. It find it annoying because Id rather have someone who means a lot to the MC die than to have a MC who never actually develops because he always gets away with his selfishness / carelessness.
As for the author, I think that his writing skills is lower than PMGs. Why? Because everything simply felt like they were words on paperwhite. The things being described to happen simply happened and I never felt really anything. In addition to that, everything just seemed to have a tone of childishness.
Anyway, with those things said, Im dropping this completely and never looking back. As for the people who I think would be interested in reading this novel, itll probably be those who are still reading PMG and the likes.
Mortal realm arc was fine. Then the MC power-ups. Then he can kill anyone half a realm over his. And from there on, it all goes downhill. MC has power-ups that cant be explained.
In raws, he got 3 saint souls two realms before anyone could ever condense theirs, and same thing for his immortal heart, condensed two realms prior to the norm.
There is more points that make the story even less believable and make it seem like the dream of an 8th grader but oh well...
Update as of chapter 2931: the MC lost the last bit of his brain since the start of the Huang Shuai arc. Wherever he goes he says become my servant or die, or just kills everyone. That happens in loops. No character development, no introspection, no thoughts.
Doesnt he ever think of his relatives? Not even one mention of them even though he left everyone that was close to him hundreds of years ago. Guess the author was lazy.
At this moment I am utterly speechless at how low this novel is able to go down to. The current arc is probably the worst I ever read, all xianxias/xuanhuans included. I would rather see the author draw a quick end to the story than let it drag on for hundreds of chapters without an end.
If I had to draw an analogy, I would say that this novel is like a classic mobile rpg game. Every day you get some resources (two chapters) to power up your character (Huang Xiaolong), and thats the end, there is no story, no explanation, no reason.
So far its just another standard xianxia trope filled story. Including the ever-so-annoying must hide abilities at all costs. Actually, amend that to must hide abilities at all cost, even passing up on benefits to cultivation, and getting angry over humiliation received from being viewed as weak.
MC would rather see his parents be humiliated rather than show even half his power. Plus he wont even let his parents know anything close to his actual progress. Just let them swallow the scorn from the rest of the family.
This is one of the worst novels that I have ever seen. I cant imagine what is going through this authors head. How could anybody think this story was a good ideal. The MC is bland and unlikable. The villians are s*upid and petty in a dumb way. Pointless power ups keep falling from the sky. The MC doesnt even need most of them. He becomes a rank 1 warrior after training for 1 day and reaches rank 2 on the 4th day.
The author relized his cultivation speed was to fast and needed to slow it down and get more word count. The MC trains for half a month and is still rank 2. He says it will take a month and a half just for him to reach the peak of rank 2. WTF IS THIS BS GOING ON! How did his speed slow down so much. Wont it take countess years just to reach rank 9 if it keeps going up like that? The MC meets a super rare monkey while training in his backyard. The monkey takes him to some treasure that helps him lvl up. The MC should have already leveled up by that time anyway and it made the treasure feel pointless. It was also surounded by countless bones and pure yin. The MC said it had been there for countless years. This treasure was a half hour jog away from his house! How did his clan never find it! They have been there for 40 years and have a ton of members! The whole thing was just to give the MC some treasure. It felt super random and cringeworthy. Stuff like this goes on forever!
he is a reincarnator from earth and he has a set of cultivation techniques that has over 10000 stages. He uses it all the way from chapter 1 to chapter 9999 and its basically better than every other skills the entire universe has created.
he is born with the strongest and never seen before martial spirits so ignore the synopsis because his spirit alone can flatten the entire universe.
is old enough to walk, he walks to a lake and finds a cave with skills and weapons from another continent from a person who can destroy the entire continent he is at right now by flicking his finger. This also comes with strong bodyguards that can kill the king of the country he is in with a stare, and an entire sect too! This sect constantly sends him stronger bodyguards each time he moves to a stronger country too!
he later finds that this guy was captures and tortured for billions of years because of power struggles in the clan. No shit. You left all your weapons and stuff in the cave so durh
one of the good things in this novel is that his cultivation increases REALLY fast, but this also means that NOBODY will EVER matter because he will keep moving to stronger countries/realms. There is also 17 different cultivation realms so far in the raws (yes! 17!!!) and the raws are not even done!
200 chapters in, he also starts becoming c*cky for no reason. He will taunt his enemies by telling them about ALL the treasures and skills he has, then kill these enemies who are 1 realm ABOVE him in ONE HIT. 2 lines later, he will remind himself that he cant let anyone know about the treasures he has.
also he cultivates by eating super rare pills that drop onto his lap that nobody else can find and his cultivation increases monthly. He also has an ability to create money out of air. Im not lying.
Dont read this. Seriously this is possibly the worst novel Ive read. I know these stories typically have MC who has a lot of luck but this is simply ridiculous. Its one thing to get a powerful spirit and have talent like that but add in a godly inheritance way too good for the effort involved and acquired way too early and a pet beast that falls for the MC for no reason whatsoever and practically exists just to give the MC more treasures even though it would be better
off keeping it for itself plus one dimensional cardboard cutout villains. I honestly dont see what the translator saw in this novel to bother translating it.
So, having come up to date with the novel (at the current released chapters 2359 as of now) and seeing no one else having made a review with this many chapters ill do one and try to keep it as spoiler free as possible.
So this novel as many others have mentioned is quite typical, but what wins it for me is that atleast it keeps some of the fantasy which I believe is the charm that I like
