Just wanted to post some of the quarks I noticed in some of the xianxia, wuxia, or other types of Chinese novels. These aren't necessarily bad qualities or good qualities. They are simply a way of storytelling that is different from English novels. I just noticed these and wanted to see what others have noticed. For example: 1. The main character will enter into a state of cultivation for a series of years, enter a teleportation circle, or hide away in a city. When that happens the next paragraph might sound something similar to this. Far away in the mountains a youth with white hair exited from an immortal cave. He has a scar and wears a red robe. Of course he is Mc hero, the person we just described last paragraph entering that cave. If the character wasn't in the story for a few years and we get a discription, then a name, it would seem normal. But some Chinese novels like to discribe the mc, say it's the mc, like it was a surprise. Ex. Xian Xi chapter 209 after teleporting. 2. Killing everyone in a sect because it prevents retaliation. While it makes sense to get rid of all your enemies before they are strong enough to kill you. The Mc doesn't really stop all retaliation. Those people in a clan/sect/family all have friends, bosses, and family that should retaliate. They aren't all in the city he just butchered. So it's weird how xianxia and wuxia completely ignore this for some novels. Ex. Martial God Asura These are just a few. I'll post more when I see them, you guys should post the things you notice.
