    His friend that left. That one that practiced the body cultivation thing, the one that causes a lot of pain.

    Zhang Tie is the giant man huh. Could someone remind me who that is again? @Little Dragon ? How did he become friends with the MC? Don't remember any armored elephant student.

    Yeah, then it will get a lot faster. It's a fun one though.

    That author quickly became one of my favorite as while his PoV aren't the most interesting ones (they actually feel a bit bland in Demon Diary) he has one of the best plots as well as worldbuildings.

    There really is a sense that everyone is trying their best and are not on 'pause' while the MC is doing his own things, which sadly waaaay too many Xanxia have that habit of doing :(

    Only 4 more chapters until they're all caught up, and it looks like they're planning to release them "within 24 hours".

    From the chapter 78 comments section (Koreanmist is the main RMJI editor):

    I'm glad this will be finished soon. GravityTales has done a great job with the retranslation, but they've unfairly received a depressing number of rude comments about the "missing" chapters and the drama with the original translator. I hope the situation will be much more positive going forward.

    Yep, Wang Yu seems to be a consistently good author. I really like RMJI and Demon's Diary, although I haven't started on Portal to Wonderland quite yet. It's very popular in China right now (as you mentioned), but yeah, I heard the current translation/editing quality isn't great.

    Kinda really really reaaaaaaaaaaaaally slow huh, chapter 90 and he is still barely a cultivator. I mean compared to it's shared universe with Demons Diary the MC here barely even counts.

    Yeah! The entire book 1 seems to be a prologue of sorts. Talking about the time he's a mortal. I guess things will get more exciting now

    His cultivation is actually quite decent. I believe he's at the 8th layer of the Eternal Spring Arts. (The ESA is his cultivation method, and think of the "8th layer" as being the same as the 8th level of Qi Condensation is another novel like ISSTH.)
    It's much higher than the current enemy's, and it's apparently even a little higher than Yu Zhitong's (the ghost who was with Doctor Mo) back when he had a body and was a full-fledged cultivator.

    He just doesn't have a teacher (yet) to show him how to properly use his spiritual power.
    But apart from that, he is still very strong. Even forgetting about his cultivation and only considering his martial arts skills, the Blinking Sword Art he's mastered is clearly very formidable.

    I guess it just feels that way because he hasn't moved from the mountain since the start, can't wait to see him travel I kinda don't like how it's been so stationary this whole time.
