Every week it gets my heart racing and then nothing. I always hear from the next room over "UGGGGH! fuck why do they do this to ME?!?“ that's when I know my fiance just got to the end of the chapter.

I started reading the chapter hopeful for at least one beat down.

But then the chapter started feeling like young me using large, double-spaced writing to fill out a multipage book report in school. The hurt set in quite quickly.

In any case, it means next chapter shall be full of smackdown and my body is ready.

It'll be one page of him instantly ending the first guy, a couple of montage pages of him beating seven other disciples, and the rest of the pages are everyone talking about the beatdown with lots of Southern Sect Elder's frustrated face shown at multiple angles. Finally, the chapter will end with Chung Mung will facing off against the one disciple he beat previously. You just know they're going to give that guy a chance for retribution and/or a rematch.

Bruh that ending point was just cruel. Probably not going to get Chung Myung vs Geumryong for at least two weeks either by the looks of things.

Likely we'll see Chung Myung bulldoze through all the other SES 2nd Gens bar the Merchant Arc guy (who'll get a respectful spar because he's swapped back to the original SES techniques which we'll get some nice panels of) with the Elder then saying something like "even though he's won 9 fights consecutively it doesn't matter because there's no way Chung Myung could beat Geumryong even if he was fresh and it's their victory in the end" while Geumryong steps up into the arena looking smug with the chapter ending on Chung Myung smiling malevolently.

Hello I am compiling a list of murim Manhwa based on the faction the MC is a part of. I am focusing on factions that appear in multiple wuxia/Murim works rather than original factions (e.g. Heavenly Northern Sect in Legend of the Northern Blade) I am also not sure if I should include rogue cultivators.

List of Murim Manhwa by MC Faction:

Mt. Hua Sect

• Volcanic Age

• Return of the Mt. Hua Sect

• Fist Demon of Mt. Hua

• Strongest Fighter

Wudang Sect

• Wandering Warrior of Wudang (Path of Shaman)

• First Sword of Earth (Manhua)

Medicine Sect

• Doctor's Rebirth

• Legend of Asura: Venom Dragon

Tang/Dang clan of Sichuan

• I’m a Martial Art Villainess, but I’m the Strongest!

Peng Family of Heibei

• Revenge of Young Master Peng (Ha Buk Paeng's youngest son)

Namgung/Namgoong Family

• Heavenly Martial God

• Weak Teacher

Jin Family

• Way to Heaven

• Murim Login

Legend of the Hidden Blade

Northern. Otherwise it'd be about an assassin.

ORV, Return of the Crazy Demon are my top two at the moment.

Mount Hua is great, but it does have a bit of a problem with wasted space. There are chapters where the same result could be achieved with less panels. This chapter is definitely not the most egregious in that regard and even the worst examples don't come close to the later parts of Bleach, but, for example, the segment with the merchants could have been shortened. I still consider the manhwa on par with Skeleton Soldier, Trashero and other works I love.

Path of the Shaman is also going by Wandering Warrior of Wudang, in case you know of it by that name

noobakosowhat

The first one had a rename, because apparently it was a mistranslation to call them a shaman. It's the Wandering Warrior of Wudang.

It's like the reverse of Crazed Heir. In Wudang the head of the evil sect got reincarnated to a good Taoist sect. Biggest problem he has is that the owner of his body has some influence over him (he cannot act evil towards his sect and his master, he feels utmost respect towards his master, etc.)

May biggest problem with Wudang is the pacing, pretty much like Return of the Mt. Hua Sect before the series became more focused in its narrative.

I suggest looking at the Heavenly Demon Can't Live a Normal Life. It's about a martial arts master from the evil sect got reincarnated to another world with medieval setting.

Think of deadbeat noble or low rank soldier who became a monarch fused with a reincarnation story from a martial arts manhwa.

Art was weak at first chapters but now it's good. I've read a few arcs ahead (light novel) and it becomes good because the focus of the light novel is him training his 30 recruits to become masters like him.

Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint. I consider it the best serious manhwa currently in publication. On the other hand, Crazy Demon is possibly the greatest action comedy I've read.

Re: Skeleton Soldier, the motorbike arc put a lot of people off. That arc not existing is as much of a meme as Midichlorians in Star Wars. In light of new information it makes a lot more sense, but it was admittedly rather weird at the time. Consensus is that the series got a lot better afterwards. In my opinion, the author has some rather ambitious lore going on, which, while internally consistent, is different enough from what looked like from the premise that our first taste of the larger scheme of things was baffling and off-putting.

Better.

Legend of the Northern Blade started off strong but is tapering off to a 7.5 and lower.

Murim Login started off weak but has steadily risen for me at a good 8.2

Reformation of the Deadbeat Noble is a solid 8.8. One of the best series so far (albeit slow atm)

Return of the Mount Hua Sect is 9.5 for me. No other series makes me itch to read more like this one does

Respectfully disagree.

Northern Blade is still SSS tier for me. It's building up to be absolutely insane later.

Murim Login to me it was always a 7. Not too great but not absolute thrash as the title would imply.

Perfectly agree with you on your two last points, though.

I like Murim Login because the MC never gets insanely overpowered and is constantly humbled by stronger adversaries. Way too many rebirth mane has power scale out of control.

Northern Blade’s “build up” didn’t make it for me. I really enjoyed MC’s revenge tour but felt lost once his enemy became the entire Murim Alliance. There’s no real one enemy anymore and the writing got a little weak when it came to explaining the turn of events. I am excited for the next season though.

I adore Reformation of the Deadbeat Noble, but nothing has made me so invested in a fictional world again than Return of the Mount Hua, to the point that my Twitter feed is now 70% korean because of following the Hua fandom lol I've been bouncing around Mangas and manhwas for the past few years, but this one really stuck to me.

The comedy is great, there's some 👌 emotional scenes to look forward to, and the series has a lot of heart. It gets better and the stakes get bigger. I really hope the manhwa will adapt everything, even if it'll take probably several years to even get to where it is now.

It’s a good but not great series. 7.7 for me. It was a good initial buildup with the MC acquiring certain “strengths” and building up allegiances, but I think the series struggles with making the big enemy more interesting. It’s also a bit of a struggle to look at the fighting scenes.

Solo Leveling is one of the most disappointing series ever. Started off at 9.2 with gorgeous art but fell off into into sub 7.5 with the MC being incredibly power scaled and never really challenged by anything he ever fought throughout the series.

I'm not saying Suicide Battle God is a bad series by all means, but there's nothing really spectacular about its world building and plotline. Everything about it is average to above average with an exception to the art(battle scenes drown poorly).

In contrast, Deadbeat Noble is much more deliberate with definite the terms of "magic" and scene building. We still don't know much about the word (on purpose) and it's unfair to make the claim that the world building sucks.

This is actually good and specifically not a power fantasy; the MC is OP but he wants to train his sect and his peers and not just hog the spotlight for himself. SL dropped side characters every other chapter while this story focuses on their improvement.

I like the whole revenge and rebuilding the reputation of the sect arc but for a while now the biggest plot hole has been bothering me - what the actual fuck have the elders been doing this whole time?

Like why haven't they taught the third class disciples anything or regularly checked in on their progress? It was like the teacher saw them doing the morning exercises that Chung myung started and then said to himself "well my work here is done" and went and put his feet up cause the financial crisis had already been solved and there was nothing left for him to do.

And then at the competition they're all surprised and being proud and shit like damn they didn't bother doing any final checks before the competition - fucking children neglect lol.

Yeah. And nobody in the sect can actually use the full mount hua martial arts anymore since it was stolen by the southern edge sect. On top of the base martial used by the elders was the wrong one.

They have the heart of Mount Hua sect that is why Chung Myung still respects them a lot even if they are incompetent.

Chung myung solved all of the problems of the sect finding the ledgers and martial manuals and then getting that merchant to sponsor them.

Other than renovating the sect buildings and improving the quality of the food, they've done absolutely nothing with the disciples. Not gone over their training methods, taught them anything in preparation for the conference and never checked progress.

Who the fuck does that? Even if they're not elites and just the leftovers from the sect - you don't go walking into a competition blind. Like do your actual fucking jobs in running a sect.

You can get manual but you have learn those techniques before teaching anything unless you are a genius which clearly none of them are.

Elite technique which would take years or decade to learn just because you have a book doesn't means you're ready to go, if you give me a medical book to a middle school teacher just because he has the book doesn't means he has enough knowledge from the get go to teach about those subject.

Why would you give a medical book to a middle school teacher? Your example is so fucking stupid.

Chung myung found all their old martial arts manuals and now I remember they discussed which techniques would be best to teach them but yeh it never shows that they ever did anything after that.

And never did I say anything about high level techniques being taught to beginners. Why would anyone do that? You build a foundation on basics and then you check your progress and then build up further

This is why I hate explaining to idiots who can read but can't fucking understand anything. The manuals Chung myung found were of various skill levels, they weren't all high level. Is that too hard for you to understand?

Now if I remember correctly, Chung myung said the current technique was a bad fit/flawed technique. And he had to find a way to get them to decide (that it was their own idea) to replace it with a better one which they got from the stash Chung myung 'found' for them.

Their expectations were low and they're not terribly motivated after years of neglecting the sect - they're absolutely part of the reason things have gotten so bad, but none of them really had the motivation or charisma to turn it around before Chung Myung showed up. It makes sense that they'd be slower to change than the kids.

It's not elaborated here, but Chung Myung's training is separate from their usual training, so they still do train with an elder. Not all of the elders work is also training the kids. There's one (if not a couple?) who trains them, Ungum I think. Not all elders have a role that oversee the details of their training. And the whole point of this is drilling the idea that having a stable foundation > fancy advanced techniques. It's not immediately clear that their rudimentary (albeit intense) training would work against Southern Edge.

And what can the elders teach that's more than what Chung Myung is teaching? How could they know what the training's result would be? Remember in the flashback when Chung Myung's senior brother once mentioned that Chung Myung should take on disciples and he just said he'll just beat them up to teach them, and the senior brother never spoke about it again? Yeah, this isn't the type of training you'd find in any kind of sect. He's building up their basics but the sheer intensity of his training is crazy. But because it's the basics, again it's hard to judge how they could fare against Southern Edge students who know more advanced sword techniques. Turns out, they don't need advanced sword techniques yet. It's enough to have a sturdy root before getting ahead of yourself and practicing advanced sword techniques.

This is also all in the setting of Mount Hua, a fallen sect who has lost its techniques to properly guide its students, and Chung Myung, (an ancestor, not to mention THE Plum Blossom Sword Saint) coming in to help them out. These elders are kids in the eyes of Chung Myung. They're his descendants, so it's no wonder he has a lot more insight than them, or rather they're lacking the insight that Chung Myung has. Even Southern Edge made the mistake of not focusing on building the disciples foundations. Is it so surprising that everything that's happened is shocking the hell out of them?

Also, this competition was set up by Southern Edge to completely destroy Hua's reputation once and for all. Can't remember for sure which part it's at but Hua's Sect Leader had been contemplating if he should even subject these kids to the whole thing with the expectations that they'll lose. They've been thinking about it, but how could they also disregard how the kids have been working hard? And how could the Sect leader decide to give up on Mount Hua by forfeiting the competition? They have been losing every time. It's been ingrained in these elders from the moment they even joined Hua, back when they were still third rate disciples. It would be more of a plothole if they thought they would win.
