    I thought that was just a Japanese interpretation of the kanji into English first which than clashed and conflated with the same Chinese hanzhi character? Between Green and Azure some translators just gave up and interpreted it as Cyan?

    RoTK's Guan Yu's famous blade '青龍偃月刀' is called 'Green Dragon Crescent Blade' on Wikipedia.

    青龍 can mean either Azure Dragon or Green Dragon. It is also slang for a man without pubic hair.

    LoL. Qin Mu turned into a leg-breaking factory for the Elders to sell their wares.

    EDIT: Since Qin Mu's [Thunderclap Eight Strikes] are powerless without the [Rulai’s Mahayana Sutra] he can just replace it with the [Devil God Mighty Force Mudra]. Might as well offend the Great Thunderclap Monastery all the way desecrating their "Divine Art".

    I have no God, no Buddha and no Devil in my heart!
    Because I am God,
    I am Buddha,
    and I am the Devil!
    I am the Overlord, the Sovereign Overseer and the Trinity.
    The Alpha and Omega
    ...the beginning and end.
    The darkness and the light.
    The divine and the corrupt.
    I am the one and the zero.
    I am the word and the silence.
    I am the truth and the false.
    I am the way and the impossible.
    I am everywhere and nowhere.
    I am ...your father.

    Isn't this the Illuminati creed?! Just kidding...

    Am I taking a Chinese course on language and history from a novel forum?
    This is awesome!

    Needs an editor for proper english terminology e.g. cow cart => oxen cart.

    I thought this novel was about a little villain but it seems like a generic "good mc" since even the elders in the village which was portrayed slightly evil at-first is not evil at all in the story.

    I don't see them as villains...I see them as outcasts who were either betrayed or disobeyed their origins to follow their own desires, which led them to suffering the mental or physical consequences for their choices.

    If they were truly evil, they wouldn't have had to be entirely kind to the MC.
    But they are still killers at the end of the day.
    Killing the guilty is an act of justice. That is true.
    But killing the innocent just because they offended you...is still of ignorant and sinful to some degree.

    Oh, his 刀's length is the length of a chopping board, so it's knife and not a sabre.

    I'm not sure why you thought it was about a full villain, it's pretty clear from the start it's not.

    They are far from nice obviously, but this is pretty much a 'outlaw' story rather than the classic full blown evil Xianxia protagonists ones.

    Hi, quick question here. So in chapter 107 he suddenly meets Fatty Wei posing as a scholar (he never before did anything like studying numbers/laws) and taking a flying ship to he capital. Why is that sudden change? Fatty wei knows about the fox monster and is okay, no one says anything?
    Did i miss something or the author skiped a chapter/part of the story?

    They meet on and off for a while, she's acting 'coquettish' around him which leads her to compete with the little fox demon. So the two of these are showing definite interest, fox just hasn't reached human form yet.
