    i'm liking the first 15 chapters. It would really be popular if it were a live action series made by the game of thrones directors...

    Translator has the common error of translating 刀 as knife instead of sabre or blade.

    Have to wait until after 100 chapters.

    i did find it odd that he had a knife instead of sabre, blade or sword.
    But I find tat it currently matches the MC circumstance for now.
    He's being taught by crippled, blind, deaf & elderly people in a weird village.

    Right now, the author is trying to focus only on his body and spirit cultivation to awaken something deep inside him. A special sword/sabre may be a great addition to his power, but it would be a distraction to the story for now.

    He already has a special sabre, even Woman Wu was screaming about it. MC just treats it as normal gear because all the elders spoil him by giving him the best stuff and not telling him their value.

    It depends on the name of the skill. 'Pig Slaughtering Knife' or 'Pig Slaughtering Saber', which do butchers use?

    Butchers use cleavers.

    But context for translation of 刀 as knife or sabre depends on the length of the weapon. Knife (like modern combat knives) is anything 1 chi (尺) and shorter. A machete would be around 1 to 1.5 chi. A sabre would usually be 3 chi or longer.

    That dark shadow probably plans to trick the MC.
    ...His Heavenly eyes will expose it.

    Obvious body-jacking scheme.

    Needs grammar editing for past, present and future tense as well as singular and multiple verbs.

    My guess is more like the MC will turns the gods/devils/buddahs into sheep or cows....and herd them.
    Or when e gets powerful enough, he will treat the gods like cattle.
    The title baffles me on what it truly means.

    I’m loving everything about this novel but what stands out to me the most is how Hunter X Hunter like the use of Vital Ki is and I’m loving that even more.

    Now I remember, the Disabled Elderly Village is like the MC's village in Carnivores of Light and Darkness. This will be interesting.

    EDIT: The [Grandmother Temple] should be the [Great Mother Temple] a country side temple dedicated to Xīwángmǔ or whichever other equivalent deity the author comes up with.

    So I read the translations and the use of 'Green Dragon' was horrible. It's Azure Dragon.

    There is a totally different character for green in Chinese. The azure character is different though at times its translated as green or cyan.

    I really hope someone tell translator about it.
