天与地 Heaven and Earth

by Tanaka Tomoyuki

Fan Fiction HIATUS Action Adventure Comedy Satire Male Lead Martial Arts School Life Wuxia

What do you get when you combine Battle Through the Heavens (Dou Po Cang Qiong 斗破苍穹), Long Live Summons (召唤万岁), Shen Yin Wang Zuo (or Sealed Divine Throne, 神印王座), Ze Tian Ji (or Way of Choices, 择天记), Vampire Sphere (血族禁域), Douluo Dalu II: Jueshi Tangmen (斗罗大陆:绝世唐门), Coiling Dragon (Pan Long 盘龙), The Celestial Zone (天界无限), Pokemon (no, seriously, blame Long Live Summons), Tales of Demons and Gods (Yao Shen Ji, 妖神记) and Wu Dong Qian Kun (武动乾坤)? This trashy parody of a martial arts-xianxia-cultivation story, of course!

All Shu Cong wanted to do was learn some martial arts to get a stable career in the military and earn a comfortable income. By some twist of fate, he ends up the disciple of Tian Mo, the legendary Celestial Demon of the evil Heaven and Earth Sect, who is determined to train him to become the strongest exponent in the Hidden Dragon Continent so that he can help take revenge on the other (more evil) sect members and disciples who betrayed him. And thus, under his new master's tutelage, Shu Cong ends up learning the supposedly ultimate martial art technique, Heaven and Earth Formula. Unfortunately, Shu Cong wants nothing more than a simple life, and his talent lies more in summoning and not martial arts?!

Note: Other than 4th wall jokes, this story has absolutely nothing to do with Number One Under Heaven.

Used to be 5/5. Then after chapter 55 came it went to sh*t.

The jokes OMFG! I am giving you a 5 star rating because the story would easily be Top 5 without the jokes. But everytime you start to feel how good the story is, or how epic it is... some lame as* joke just murder that feeling. After the jokes you feel like you are watching a Adam Sandler movie... and I dont mean that in the good way. Then again I think you are doing that on purpose so I cant really lower the score beacuase of that. But I understand if someone does.

----------------------------------- AFTER CHAPTER 55

I have changed my score to 2. I had to lower my score. I was loving the story because it was a an ACTUAL parody. Granted most of the jokes were bad, but it was bearable. After chapter 55 it stoped being a parody. The author copied the whole plot of Vampire Sphere. He evens puts the pages from mangafox from whre he is "supposedly parodying". Everything happened exactly the same. There was no parody. The MC went from a character to merealy an spectator. THERE WAS NO PARODY. NO JOKES. EVERYTHING HAPPENED EXACTLY THE SAME. THATS NOT HOW A PARODY WORKS.

I advise the author to find the dictionary definition of: "COPY" and "PARODY".

Enjoyable and Entertaining

At first, I was hesitant to do any reading since I have my own story to work on, but decided to take a short break and ended up picking this story to read. Although not far into the story at this point, I felt like leaving a review of my impression.

Style:

I personally believe Tomoyuki has a good style for the story he is writing. It was fairly simple to read while it made the satirical parts stand out. 

Story (Will edit as I continue reading):

Although I have not read all of the story yet, I believe it has a spark that a lot of Xianxias do not, which makes it interesting. Personally, I believe Tomoyuki has done a good job of writing what he wanted to write. The satirical and humorous aspects of the story are a large part of the writing, and I believe it is what makes the story what it is.

Grammar:

I gave grammar a 4.5 since there were a decent number of small mistakes in terms of word usage or spelling. However, there was nothing that was impossible to interpret right off the bat. Overall, it was very satisfactory.

Character:

First of all, I must say that the protagonist was very much to my liking. His traits were stealthily placed into conversation or otherwise well-scripted into other paragraphs. While the other characters were enjoyable as well, I did think that a few more unique traits could be added to either their personality or actions. Overall though, the character interactions were enjoyable to read, which is incredibly important. 

Conclusion:

Basically, I would definitely recommend this story to anyone familiar with other Xianxia stories and loves some basic humor. No, wait, anyone can enjoy this. Humor is humor, and a good story is a good story. Thumbs up, Tomo!

In this new Episode of Pokemon:Brawlers!

 

Seriously though, this is a good story that can give you a chuckle here and there. It flows nicely ,and it have a logical main character. I didn't notice any grammar mistakes and if there were, it doesn't pull you out of it's narrative. The story was an enjoyable read that I wished have more chapters already.

4.5 stars because this story has a potential and calling an unfinished piece of work perfect is not my ideology.

Also, a pokemon+martial arts and a chance of magic is certainly a unique direction. Although the use of magical beasts (pokemons) is one of the central points in the story, you shouldn't give it a cold shoulder if you happen to dislike pokemon.

A comment for the author, you should mention pokemon in your summary as an inspiration. I was quite surprised when I figured it out during the Toxiking part.

the jokes are forced and there is way too many of them, the characters are badly fleshed out the scenes are almost an exact replica of other novels but poorly executed.

worst of all if you want put jokes in a novel don't repeat them over and over again until they got stale to the point I can't stand it anymore.

this entire novel was a huge letdown with nothing but poorly constructed jokes and references that mascarade the lack of anything actually good in this novel hopefully you somehow get better in the future.

Rough spot but becomes quite good!

This story starts out well, but around chapter 50 becomes much weaker. Happily enough, once the vampire sphere arc is over, it returns and even surpasses its former quality. The grammar is excellent and it avoids many insipid cliches common in Wuxia novels. Try reading it and leave the author a like! Otherwise, this story may end up dropped.

The inseperable opinion of characters and Author

Before writing this I had to double check the synopsis, that let me give it an extra star for never having claimed to be more than a "trashy parody" of a litany of Asian tropes.  That being said, the story was fair and entertaining up to a point, however recently the direct reference to other works xianxia and wuxia and direct bashing thereof has become obnoxious.  Some events are described and later dismissed that the characters are fantasizing as another work.

Summarized another way, another commenter posted on chapter 42, "The series has gotten a lot more obnoxious as of lately with its passive aggressiveness of degrading other series. If you want to divert from tropes, fine, but a series should not be carried using this sole method. You're insulting the works of others to bolster your own work when it's not that much different. Tone it down."

The author replied, "I'm not insulting the works of others. The whole joke is that even as Shu Cong complains about other series, he ends up doing the exact same thing as them."

Generally characters should not have opinions about other works, they cannot only the author's opinion can be present.

Didn't waste my time which is nice.

Not much I can say about it at the moment other it's worth the read.

Harem? Nope

Cliches? Not too much

Repeatetive? Not yet and hoping it won't be that much

MC? He knows what he wants and knows his bottom line.


Give this a read if you want to cure your cancer of harem martial arts novels and pussified MCs.

If this were a restaurant I'd give it a Michelin star

This author continues to entice me with their compelling use of the English language. Keep it up!

 

Also, everyone should rate this story five stars.

There is breaking the 4th wall and there is this...

There is a story. It could have been nice and humurous.

Sadly the fact that the character literally insert name of other xianxa novels, and bash them destroy the immersion. So instead of a MC who show that je is different than other xianxia MC, we have an MC that tell us that he is different of this MC of this xianxia. 

It could be good without these comments. And the xianxia readers could still understand the references (like in History Number 1 Founder).  Or if the author absolutly need to add his comments, he could do so like in Fantasia, by using parenthesis.

This story started off with lots of promise: the protagonist showed motivation and persistence. Rewarded for his perseverence, kindness and humanity, he gained unbelievable strength & skills. 

Unfortunately, from there, the author injected various unrelated pop cultural and technology links such as the internet.

Readers of fantasy stories require one inherent trait - suspend science, common sense and believability. 

However imho, a good storyline needs coherence not only in character but content & links. 

I wish the author would remove the pop culture mentions....its unnecessary & only serves to make the story unrelatable.
