    Heard that Against the Gods (ATG)(逆天邪神):
    1. It's more like Kama Sutra but with double-digits worth of loli-waifu harem orgy.
    2. And basically more repetitive story arcs than Peerless Martial God(PMG).
    3. Seriously Less-Funny than Otherworldly Evil Monarch (OEM)
    4. Boring Side Characters. Best buddy is a bore, while nay-sayers are robots set to repeat the same lines of insult.
    5. Going to take 10 more years to complete. (900+ chapters is only one-third into storyline)
    6. MC is a serial sex-offender, possible worse than (Martial-God Asura) MGA's MC?
    7. Author Mars Gravity (火星引力) holds paying-readers hostage by seriously dragging out chapters with flashbacks and narration (think Naruto + Dragonball + Inuyasha). Male version of "Rumiko Takahashi".
    8. There are actually retcons (Author goes back and change the script for his earlier chapters).
    9. Author enjoys breaking 3.5th(not even 4th) wall gimmicks because MC knows that he is cursed by "Powers that be".

    PS: MC doesn't look like this:

    MC looks more like this:

    Dump, obviously. I used to read it a long time ago, and all I can say is it put me off cultivation novels for a while (and off Mars Gravity forever). Unless you're a lolicon. I swear, the guy seriously loves his lolis.

    It's a pretty decent popcorn novel, much like MGA.

    Read it for entertainment. If it doesn't entertain you, drop it. It ain't hard to figure out. :blobunsure:

    Nothing is more repetitive than PMG. But yea, if you haven't started, I recommend dumping it. At least until it finishes.

    I tend to avoid Mars Gravity novels because the guy is a full blown pedo. I was pretty disturbed reading his other novels, especially Heavenly Star

    It's not that bad if you shut 95% of your brain off. I also hate lolis in any kind of novels since I feel like the author and MC are serious pedos. You should read it if it's fun to you ( to me it is since I try to ignore all the repetitive plot, sex, rape, suicidal maniacs, stupid young masters, stupid MC, stupid power ups and lolis.) or drop it and read it after it is finished if you want to.

    Ive stuck with this story since 400. As someone who has dedicated himself to finishing it, here is my opinion.

    Main character is 'decent'. He has is flaws and thinks with his dick a lot. ESPECIALLY if there is a girl around. 90% of his time in the story is him being bossed around by some woman. The rest of the time is him sleeping with said woman/everyone else who moves. The combat in the story does get a bit 'stale' as most of it ends the same way. "Oh shit, he is stronger than me, PURGATORY! enemy dies. However its the important battles that shit gets good, and by good, I mean REALLY good.
    His fight with the Heavenly Sovereign is one of my favorites in all the novels I've read
    The story has OK character development. While YC doesnt grow up much, everyone else around him does and thats possibly one of the best parts. I.E Mr."Brother In Law!"
    Im not talking about HER.

    is it good? 7/10.
    is it worth your time? if you have space between other novels that you want to fill, go for it. No reason not to.


    (WARNING, 400-700 IS A SLOG)

    It's the novel equivalent of Bleach. Good at first, some really cool shit happening but then it goes on and on with the same thing and you realize the cool thing at the beginning is all it offers and nothing else.

    also, I always assumed that was a certain older brother (on the cover) who will probably be revealed later on
