Red Pepper Afraid Of Spicy
Disclaimer not a review just a rant on dumb reviews cause I hate confrontation. I do however recommend this novel, so read it if my rant has any persuasion on you. I would give it a little less but people are rating 1 stars because they cannot read clearly. They get mad he took 3 years to break through to golden core realm, for a reference the dragon princess took about the same amount of time, with the MCs total cultivation time an average genius would be peak 1st realm about to break through 2nd (golden core is 3rd). They say he has no cultivation talent no sh i t he would have been accepted into any other peak if he had any talent. There was one person who complained about him being a little sheep and beta male since he easily accepted his master as his master when he had no idea who he was. You do realize he is the only disciple on the peak and would get all the resources right? This is said multiple of times. Even if he didn't get all the resources did you want him to leave and never cultivate or how about beg to be accepted into another peak where he has to be a janitor just to cultivate the worst technique there is (MCs master gave him the best technique there is for the sect).
One of those sign in novels but this one is quite good imo. The reason is probably the main character and the female lead. The romance slowly buds even though it started with a *spoiler* arranged political marriage. Both knew each other and were on the stage of 'no dislike' and grew to the stage of like. Both of them are actually quite naive in love and their growing mutual like is quite innocent. It may seem cheesy but I thought it was sweet. That said, the novel is still mainly a Xianxia. The mc tries his best to remain low-key and 'sends his enemies on the road' anonymously. The fights are quick with the mc using his fist to create blood mist. Overall, it's a worthwhile reading experience.
Is this a joke? Where's the ambition, the urgency - emotions even! The protagonist isn't a human. He doesn't know how to think for himself, let alone what critical thinking is. You can put a human-shaped cardboard in place of the protagonist and still have story progress in the exact same way as this has been going. Nothing the protagonist does matters, even his cultivation depends on the author's mood. He will sometimes stagnate for years on end, and other times rapidly increase in cultivation with no rhyme or reason.
This review is after reading the first 50 chapters during the trial period. All I can say is - this novel is extremely boring. First off, let me state that I'm not a big fan of Sign In novels. I've always found them to be a really boring type of system, copied from some of the worst free-to-play games. However, I went into this novel with an open mind, willing to give it a chance. The main problem with this novel isn't the Sign In system, but just that it's so incredibly boring. It's written more like a documentary about the life of an immortal, rather than a story of the events around the hero. The author has no sense of how to create tension or suspense in any scene. The MC is an almost emotionless doll that never reacts to anything around him, he's always lost in his own world. Even on the rare occasions that he gets into a fight, he has an utterly deadpan personality, and it feels like I'm seeing the author write about a walking piece of tofu rather than a human being. The fight scenes aren't completely worthless, as the MC uses a silly fighting style similar to One Punch Man, where he kills everything with a single punch, but even that just feels boring because there's no strategy to the fights. The fights get over before they've even begun, and most of the time the MC doesn't even know why the fight happened in the first place, because he's such a boring blob of tofu that he doesn't care to find out. Another serious problem with this novel is how it tries to badly ramp up the drama through scenes where the MC does an "amazing" task in front of other disciples of his sect. The problem is that the author has no idea what's actually impressive to look at through the eyes of a reader. For example, he spends several chapters talking about how "the MC dared to take one more step" in order to obtain treasures or walk on a lake, all while a crowd of background characters keeps shouting out how absolutely amazing it is that the MC can keep taking that step. It feels very artificial and forced, to the point that I want to puke just thinking about it. On the positive side, because the MC is so utterly bland, some of the side characters appear more relatable. There's a female character, a senior sister, who's actually wiling to listen to the MC's advice and words, and there's a senior brother who takes him seriously and accepts him as a rival on the path of cultivation. The problem is just that they're still incredibly shallow, up to the point I've seen. Rather than have independent personalities of their own, they feel like they were specially constructed characters created just to make the MC look better. The story tries to show us that even for a genius MC, it still takes hundreds of years to walk down the path of immortal cuktivation. While that's a nice mindset to have, the problem is when there's nothing at all happening during all those hundreds of years. TL DR : It's a boring story about an unexpressive MC doing nothing but cultivating for hundreds of years.

Not worth reading The mc is actually useless. He progressed so fast in the first couple of days, reaching the peak of Qi refining in the first day then peak of Foundation Establishment in a few months but from my understanding they are all from the system. He spent 3 years without any progress. He's been trying to condense a golden core for 3 years since he was at the peak of Foundation Establishment but still couldn't break through, he eventually did but guess what it was from a pill he got from signing in... At least in other sign in novels the mc's could break through without the need for their system
i read 20 chapters i don't know the cultivation system and i know nothing about the world exept it has at least 9 mountains where the sect is nothing more. translation is rather bad. example he finished foundation realm over night but it says he joined the sect over night as chapter title update stability: hard to rate because only trial read character design: don't really know anything about the charakters except mc has a login system where he get things every day and he doesn't want to do anything except sitting in his cave and cultivate. no backround info no real emotions no ambitions. every fight is someone tries to attack him and he attacks back 1 time with his fist, booooom enemy dead all in all its a bland story
Im on 287 chapter and everyday waiting for the new chapters.The interval between breaking through the Realms is not too far away, not too small...Quite good to read.The only thing depressing me is that everytime he becomes more powerful,many times more powerful enemies appears and that just shows how insignificant his being is even after all the cultivating in seclusion and every cheat-like thing he got from the system.
after having read all the normal chapters, and most of the epilogue, I must say this is one of the most satisfying novels I have read on the platform so far. And the main reason for that is that it is well written. The story is well planned out and everything that happens in the story happens for a reason, and at the end it all comes together. The story is about a guy with a sign in system who becomes the only disciple of the 9th peak of the Kunlun sect. The sign in system allows him to get high quality resources appropriate for his level if he signs in at a place with dao accumilation. Although his body is not very suited for cultivation his mindset is, and coupled with the sign in resources he cultivates faster than anyone else (and despite this he needs several 100 years to become an immortal). He keeps his true cultivation hidden from everyone and avoids conflict as much as possible but when he needs to fight he is very overpowered. Not all people will like the mc though, I think some would find him boring, but having said that just know that even the boring personality is part of the plot. But I found the boring, always cultivating, personality was not really a problem bc it was also part of a good solution to something that I find a bit strange with most xianxia novels, when you think a bit deeper about the sort of life an immortal cultivator has than a lot of things should happen on a far wider timescale than in most novels. A cultivator needs a lot of time to cultivate and the amount of times they go out can be measured in years, maybe even decades but most mc's rush towards the higher cultivation levels in a couple of years and rarely do they take a long cultivation break that lasts years. And the stupid thing is that even though the mc has a system there fewer moments that the mc had plot armor or that something illogical happened than with the mc's who always get into a fight wvery city they visit. Now this mc takes it a bit to the extreme with long cultivation sessions, but that cultivation takes time is not overlooked. And in the same line of thinking the relationship he builds up with the love interest, builds up over years. They meet after he has been in the sect for a couple of years, they get betrothed after 150 years, marries after 600 years, etc. It was very satisfying to see an author implement some of the things I thought about when I read other novels. The only minor negative is that the story could have had a bit more action if the mc was forced to participate a bit more in going outside the sect, that could have added a couple 100 chapters. But since the reasoning behind this choice is explained and is part of the plot I don't mind it at all (not sure if such an mc, even with a similar good reason, would work in other stories. I think the author and translator did a good job of keeping the story interesting but I can understand not everyone thinks the same)
A lot of people don’t like sign-in novels, which I understand. Sign-in novels aren’t popular because of the golden finger and the MC, though; this type of novel is geared towards exploring wirld development, I think. This particular novel is a great example of that: the MC’s main feature is that he has a very solid temperament, which prevents a lot of the ‘typical misunderstandings that cause 3 story arcs’ scenarios. Personally, I enjoy reading about a hidden expert watching the world slowly change around them and only intervening every once in a while. The relaxed nature soothes my soul and makes for good downtime reading.
ive read to chap 154 this is a sign in system story. meaning that the MC will focus more on cultivating that takes like decades before coming out to gain some insight before going into retreat again. action do exist but is it's very little at the beginning. although at the later time, it does increases but it is still quite minimal. MC is told to have great temperament. meaning that he wont panic or show great emotion when facing any situation. and yes, thats what how he acts at the story. he wont help anyone if it endangers himself or risky. he is not a good person nor a bad person. he is a lawful neutral person. only when it involved his master would he begin to show such emotion. characters are great and theres a lot of untap potential for future plots. world background are not explained unless needed. the romance is great though. this is still a xianxia novel but the romance is quite pure, unlike the usual xianxia where they meet, face some danger together, fall in love, and then become couple. they actually *spoiler* get engage before falling in love. and right now they dont like each other, but have a favourable impression towarss each other. and because it is such a pure interaction where they slowly get close together. i can only honestly say that you should read this for the romance. the other aspects is fine and depending on preference, it can be good or bad. so before you start reading, please know that : 1. MC is a lawful neutral and wont help unless he have a good reason 2. theres not much action as expected from a sign in system genre 3. romance is a slow growing type
