It's funny because, OP and Naruto are among the big ones from Japan; ToG and Noblesse among the big ones from Korea. But with this you always have the feeling that you are not being told useless lines.

Nice chapter, tho I think Ah Gou is out of place in torturing Shi Xing. It seems to me unjustifiably cocky since when he came of his last training.

I think most have seen way too many shonen jump type of protagonist that are just over the top honor bound to fight to the death for their "nakamas" or "insert random ideal priciple or beliefs",
Wu Geng is an extreme realistic character that would run away from a fight that he can't win, exploit a situation if it benefits him, do bad things occasionally just for l0lz, and enjoy himself often at the cost of other less fortunate ones.
in the end he is a brat that just got a sudden power up and is yet to be put to the test, anyone who feels him self a million dollars has that kind of ego, and i know many irl that are much worse.
I give you that he's not the regular shounen kind of hero, and I like that. But I don't understand why I should have to like, seeing him hitting some defenceless guy only for the lolz. So I don't understand well what the author is doing there. It could be just a difference of preferences. that's why I say it seems a bit weird to me.
Also, in some sense I find the Ah Gou that was trying to safe his wife back in the mines a bit more mature than the brat from this chapter. And that comes to my mind just because according with what we have seen, he will have to lead the dark ones, which somehow would require more wise than what he's showing now.
When he was in the mines, he wasn't that strong. He's really strong now and power makes people change.
To be honest, the only reason i think he was torturing Xing was only because Xing pissed him off too much and attacked him back when Xing was bad and Wu geng wanted payback that he can now get because Xing is immortal and isn't the nice Xing but more like a beast during full moons.
Who wouldn't jump on the opportunity :P
Yeah, I was a bit surprised at what Ah Gou was doing, but he didn't really see the transformation, so perhaps that is the reason, plus that the guy lost his hand and had to fight through a horde of zombies with his captive uncle...I think, me too, was underestimating the stress during that period and how that affected or still affects Ah Gou's feelings towards Shi Xing...
I like how Bai Cai acts though, I think she will become his anchor, and restrain the cruelty that comes with his power and get him back into the human world, as far as personality goes...
Really good chapter...too bad the authors are focusing on the story, which of course gives us the great pace, but maaaan, I'd love to see this world explored some more
So Wu Geng's divine power keeps growing, he's definitively special. A lot of new characters were introduced, the dark ones finally caught up with the marshall's ship. They got rid of the sea devils boss real quick.
Linlin seems really interesting!
A good chapter overall but not really much to talk about at the moment unfortunately.
New chapter is out, and wow things are getting better and better, although with this entire presentation the pace slowed down a bit...but I guess I don't mind that
It's so hard to remember the names though
Also good to see Tian again...he is definitely a boss, I like him
To me was the contrary. The sea king has to be neutralized, so that the rebels can keep going ahead. But why to make of it a contest about how is stronger? That was silly and boring.
Not to mention that in the manhua race differences are really important to some, so having a human doing incredible amount of damage, is probably igniting their pride, even though some did acknowledge Ah Gou as their brother
Yes Nitian seems the only one to be mature, all the others generals behave like kids. But well it has been like that since the beginning : people speaking big before they act. I must say that's one of the things I like in this serie. The talks are more bluff than fact.
Yes they are like that, and the story is much more about bluffing and powers, than about the "sight for justice". Maybe I didn't like much to see a father worried about her daughters, smashed in front of them, and as the main trophy of that childish game. But I should have to realise the story won't stop in such delicate issues.
Besides, imagine getting stranded on a hellish place for your entire life because of the gods (and their allies in a way), wouldn't you be pumped to be able to finally settle things for good?They're excited and since they can't fight against their own (because of Nitian's rule), they need to get all their anger out on the gods and whoever is protecting them and it's a good strenght test as well.
I liked the chapter and i wonder if the last dark ones we've seen (can't remember his name obviously) will somehow betray Nitian in the future.
But that's just my interpretation, and I agree with the overall point, that some of these delicate issues are not that fleshed out, and the authors stop at such problems only when a major character is involved...which gives the series its charm for me...its more like a fairy tale, with all the neglecting of minor characters and the heroic tone around the heroes and not like other manga that might focus on writing and careful plots and so on...
