I think a comparison between book and adaptation is always inevitable, because a book is the source material afterall. In EN Season 1 case, I think the differences are still acceptable so far. They still follow the majot plot and, sometimes they even showed the details from the book, such as (pls CMIIW)

- epi 22

After NQ woke up, he drank tea directly from the tea pot instead of the cup

- when NQ-SS were hiding NQ's calligraphy in the shop, their conversation was really taken from the book (NQ asked SS to protect them, then SS said that she would protect them like the black umbrella)

- the ruckuss when YS came to the competition :P ..and the kid who brought the card with the winner's name

 

Epi 21 :

- NQ's conversation with his friend before he decided to join the competition . His friend even half-shouted at him when he was surprised, just like the novel

 

Those were small things, but I love how the drama really tried to make a scene as how it was in the book. I guess several additions/changes are considered necessary, in order to 'polish' things more. Compared to other novel adaptations which had gone too far and bring disappointments to book fans, I think EN 1 has been trying to stay loyal to the source material..so far.

Ep. 23 the priest scene is still confusing...

Spoiler

Poor SS, she waits for him to come home all night long... :tears:... I'm not a fan of how overdone everyone's concern aside from SS and CPP... Li Yu action is a bit too much. 

 

Anyway... In Ep 1, Wu Ming attack Luo Kedi with the bell, so that means WM has an ability to direct who should the bell targeted. 

This means that the attack to NQ in ep 23 could be not random after all. But how could he knows that its NQ?

 

My theory is still its a random attack, and  NQ was hurt because he's someone reincarnated from another world. So he can be harmed by the bell. Or from Fuzi/ WGM words someone born knowing, and that's why WGM mistook him as son of hades. 

 

But, I'm still confused about the umbrella having a pointing abilities... LoL... so.. what someone says in viki that the umbrella might have an ability to make NQ as a pretend son of hades could have merit... who knows? LoL 

 

I'm confused about Yan Se a bit... why didn't he have any question about the black umbrella... Does he know something after all? I know that his excuse of NQ attack was Xiling wants revenge on LQ's loss, but I don't think it's that simple. 

 

I think the incense has something to do with the bell's effect. Maybe the effect can only last for an incense time. Or NQ pass out because of the incense? LOL.... both have merits... I'm more inclined with the first theory.

 

LOL.. maybe in the future once Yan Se and WGM met, we'll have a clearer picture. 

 

Aside from this priest scene, I like the latter part of Ep 23. NQ and Yan Se's interaction is great.. They both can guess each other's toughts.... NQ is very cheeky with him.. LOL.. even poking fun of him with sister dewdrop :lol: and also saying that people from the same family is similar ... hahaha.. aka they are both STINGY.... :lol:

Spoiler

 

I just think the umbrella is connect to SS so when she wanted to find Ning Que it just dropped and pointed the way. 

 

Maybe NQ is connected to hades as well also can someone tell me why Fu Zi wanted Ning Que so bad 15 years ago is that connected to SS and Hades or separate?

 

 

 

One thing im really loving is the emperor knowing everything going on it makes for a nice change of pace from all the dramas where emperor is stupid even though he should obviously be near the most talented and know whats going on.

Ep 23 :

 


Yeah, I also feel that this epi is not good as the previous ones. And, was NQ's ink smell that strong, so that she could still smell it after a day? In an open space ?

I also think that it was a random attack. My theory is he originally attacked NQ because of LQ, but he used that bell to randomly test NQ and see whether he was effected or not. 


I dont think that NQ passed out because of the intense, because he had been effected by the bell before. But it should be something important, because the camera focused on it several times. Now is there any incense in the novel beyond chapter 500? 

Wait, but it's also possible that NQ passed out at fiest after being knocked out by Wu Ming :P .. Hmm..yeah, in this case, the bell only hurt NQ and the one that knocked him out was the incense

 That's why, after the incense was burnt out, he woke up. 

But, what is the purpose of Wu Ming kidnapping him? WM wanted to proof that NQ was the Son of Hades -> okay. But how ? Wasnt it enough by watching him got hurt because of the bell? 

Perhaps, is WM trying to kill NQ slowly using the incense? 
 

 

 

About the umbrella (big spoiler, I think) :

 


I think it's still understandable if the umbrella can sense and point NQ's whereabouts. IIRC, the novel once said that the umbrella thought that NQ was the protector of the Daughter of Hades. That's why it protected him
 

 

 

@Wotad, sorry which part that said that :



Fu Zi wanted NQ so bad 15 yrs ago?

Do you remember which episode is that?

I think your being a little to judgemental regarding episode 23 and Sang Sang is not exactly someone random and not totally normal.. Ink does have a every strong smell so i think its logical. 

 

The Incense was obviously the thing killing him.

 

 

In the recent episodes where hes fishing he said he picked his disciple 15 years ago. 

 

I just wanna know if he was picked due to being related to hades or because Fu Zi saw what he can become?

at first i also confused about this, but now after a quick search in the novel, i just found out that actually there is no scene about the WM priest attack NQ. So it only happens in the drama, I dont know why the director added it. CMIIW.

Anyway, just want to say that my fave fighting scene is epi 14 at the teahouse :p . Actually, I have several fave fight scenes. The best of all are the ones in epi 6 and 14, while the best of the best in epi 14 :P

 

@epinklyn, yeah..it wasnt taken from the novel. My guess is the drama was trying to bring out a new issue (Son of Hades and Xia Hou) after the previous one was over (the competition).

@rhaps, I'm actually very satisfied with all of the fighting scenes so far. I particularly like scenes with NQ, YHY and XH. I also love the way talisman/ rune skills are realised in this drama, even if it did remind me the Avengers a bit. The fights did not just focused on the main characters, even the stand in soldiers/ gangsters/ etc can be seen falling and being slayed creatively. I like them very much.

Yeah @rhaps i love all the NQ fighting scene, it looks so real! But so far i like ep 14 and ep 6, cant wait next week the fighting scene in the wilderness against the horse gang.

 

Spoiler

Yeah maybe the drama want to add some bold statement to show that since NQ success become Mr. Thirteen beating the most powerful opponent LQ, he is now like pop-up to the world and become some kind of "threat" for his rival and enemy, thats why he's been wanted to be killed by Xia Hou, King's brother and XiLing Priest, but also still connected with the last three murder investigation. For Xiling he is the son of hades, for General XiaHou he is someone who wants to get revenge for General Lin' family massacre, and for King's brother maybe he is gonna be a barrier to overthrone the king.

Yes, I'm also satisfied with all the fighting scenes. The ones in epi 23 are also great. Well, all of them are great :P

It does remind me of dr Strange a bit :P

Yes, I understand you mean about the supporting chars in fighting scenes. It was especially good in epi 6, when Chao Xiaxu (his name is difficult) was fighting and you could see men was thrown everywhere

Yessss I've been waiting for that too!!!

Based on the trailer, I'm guessing that it should be in epi :



around 33-35

 

Regarding epi 23 again , yeah perhaps you are right :



I guess the drama wanted to show how important NQ was and how significant his figure now among the Xiling, Xia Hou, and the Tang Empire. So when he was gone, everyone was looking for him like he was someone so important, because he WAS.

 

@stella77



I still believe that no one was questioning her because she could not cultivate, so the magic didnt effect her. In the novel, NQ was talking with several member of the 'blue cross'. He asked them how they could climb up, and then they said that they weren't cultivators (or something like that, I forgot)

 

Yeah, NQ having everyone looking for him and wanting to make him their students was really satisfying :P . And the Emperor also finally found him. Those were one of my favourite parts in the novel too

Yes yes me too me too, ep 22 is like an achievement moment for NQ and acknowledgement moment from everybody who has been underestimated him. I cant keep smiling watching that scene, just like watching my boy achieve his dream, so proud and grateful for him hahahaha. Actually ep 19-22 has been my fav for non action scene. So many fav scene, so that i have to categorized them LOL, such as romantic scene, fighting scene, academic scene, debate scene etc.. 

 

 

Spoiler

In the upcoming spoiler about NQ meet Flower Addict and Book Addict, just like heaven n hell, NQ attitude towards Flower addict was so mean and arrogant, he even throw away the precious flower, oh NQ why just cant you give the flower so she can be nicer to you. And when he meet MSS, so nice and calm LOL. CFY really did a very good job in this, his acting skills is so good!

More spoiler translation for ep 30

Spoiler

 

SS: Young Master, drink some water. Young Master when you get to the wilderness you have to ...

NQ: I know, when I get to the wilderness I will take good care of myself, OK.

SS: Young Master, If you meet the enemy, you can't be like an idiot rushing to the front if you can dodge then dodge. The weather is cold now, don't sleep in draughty places, use more blankets, don't drink cold water, don't eat cold foods, if you get a bad stomach what would we do.

NQ: I know. I should also take some more silver teals.

SS: You don't have to take silver teals, the Academy will definitely provide room and board (LOL). Young Master, do you also want to sharpen these blades?

NQ: Of course.

SS: Young Master, what is inside the box that you brought from the Academy.

NQ: Original thirteen arrows.

SS: What are Original thirteen arrows?

NQ: Weaponry.

SS: You have the blades why do you need another weapon.

NQ: Sang Sang, patience is the greatest weapon.

SS: Yes, patience is very important.

NQ: All I have left now is patience.

SS: Young Master, you hairs messy, let me comb it for you.

NQ: OK

 

NQ-SS separation will be from around ep 31 to at least ep 42 so two whole weeks :(.  I am looking forward to SS finding her parents, becoming a disciple of the light guy, playing chess with CPP and also counting how many times NQ thinks of or mentions SS:P .  I think recent episodes have been hinting at how smart SS is ans I can't wait to see her development.

Wow thx a lot @satanghaesolim for the translated spoiler!.

 

Yeah this song with male version so fit with some of the scenes, especially for ep 14 when NQ was dying, it gives me the chill and cold, maybe the same way with NQ felt that time, cold weak and a lot of pain. I think they are doing great with mix n match scene n ost.

The fighting scenes in EN will be my benchmark for future wuxia genres. For the life of me i cannot recall any other  wuxia tv drama where the quality of the fight scenes come close. I'm savouring this series slowly, because I don't want to miss anything.
