Writing a review for all seasons combined (130/176 of this season). A few Spoilers ahead.
Story started with promise of a smart but not OP MC who would solve the problems with his wits and careful planning. But with time, all his plans became unfruitful and he gets lucky in most situations. Nowhere has he used half of his brains to defeat his enemies and progress his plans.
All his careful plans which took seasons to setup were mostly left ignored like main plot of taking revenge on Emperor Wu and it became story of him facing death multiple times (like literally dying) and then getting lucky
plot armour power ups instead of dying. And all this time he never learnt any lesson and kept repeating same mistakes like fighting much powerful enemies without any planning, letting his secrets leaked, leaving his enemies alive after defeating them, etc.
As if this wasn't bad enough, the episodes are full of fillers with no contributions to plot and MC showing off his brains for no reason at wrong places. Fights are short lived with no brains involved there as well. Cultivation progress is also random, he stayed at same level for 4 season, then broke 5 levels within 10 episodes, like wtf?
And after ascending why does he need to hide his identity as Ye Qingyun? better go back to his old identity. It looks like a completely different story after ascending.
All in all a below average cultivation donghua which you can watch if you have nothing else to watch and need something to pass time.
