MoDaoZuShi review

A few weeks back i’m finally catching up with all of the existing updates for the highly raved Modaozushi which alternatively translated as Founder of Diabolisme , of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation

if you haven’t heard about it, its a very popular Danmei novel which is already adapted to Manhua and Anime/Donghua. The production house of the anime was Tencent which is probably the biggest tech company for games, social media etc in China right now.

So i can say the animation are in good hand, however due to restriction of censorship which impact a lot of BL in china until now MoDaoZuShi is also on the radar and was temporarily taken down from Tencent for readjustment. Apparently they said some scenes are to gore but well IMHO they are probably just making whatever excuses since they now the source material was BL, again WTF China moment

Well enough with the rant i would like to introduce this piece of awesomeness to those who still haven’t read it yet, i say please read the novel and then watch the anime it really is super good

Summary

As the grandmaster who founded demonic cultivation, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him.He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the sects—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.

This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei WuXian slowly realizes that Lan WangJi, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei WuXian than he is letting on…

the main character (MC) Wei wu xuan/Wei Ying/Yiling Patriarch

mo_dao_zu_shi_1231
Trouble Maker , Prankster, Hero Complex young man with a kind heart, willing to sacrifice his whole being to protect the weak and do what he think is right tho by doing so he was demolished and get really fucked up by the situation

and Lan Wang Ji/Lan Zhan/Han Guang Jun

Lanwangji
Stoic, Rule abiding, Romantic well we all know that wei wu xian will end up with lan wang ji so let me spoil some of the most heartwarming background , after wei wu xian death lan wangji travels across country playing his guqin playing ‘inquiry’ which is a song to communicate with ghost in hope to find wei wu xian lost soul and he keeps doing it for 13 years

But not only that all of the character from the villain until the minor character are all extremely intriguing

The plot

i loveeeee the storyline of modaozushi if could describe it is like putting up pieces of puzzle and you’ll get much clearer view when you dig deep into the story, and its really enticing never boring

Now for new reader of modaozushi its going to be pretty confusing for the first 10 chapter since the story fast forward to a decade after the main event and its going to reveal piece by piece of what happen earlier in the story in a flashback. But pleaaaaseee hang in there cause its going to be really reallyyy good

also as i mention each character have several name or title we need to remember,
they have courtesy/common name which they usually called by, birth name for close friends and family, and title which is what they are famous by, thus this also will be very confusing but as you read you’ll get the hang of it

reading the character guide will also be very helpful for newbie

The animation (donghua/anime)
tencent really give a nice touch by combining 2d and 3d animation into the series, to sometime we may see few flaws in the 3d but for the most part it was beautiful especially the beautiful ancient china scenery
ofcourse some part from the novel was ommited to adjust for anime and because the damn censorship but it is still very2 well done

there is a very nice review for the donghua available in youtube @DongHua reviews

as the review mention i also would suggest this anime for non BL fans cause its really worth watching for the great storyline, i hope we’ll get to watch season 2 next year

  1. “Apparently they said some scenes are to gore but well IMHO they are probably just making whatever excuses since they now the source material was BL,”
    Thank you. I will only read the novel if the anime cut off all the BL
