Wow, how could they be so fast with post production?... usually I'm unimaginably happy to see anything with my baby Liu Xue Yi, but last couple of years I have rather reserved expectations for anything coming from Youku...however will definitely check it during New Year holidays and see how this turns). 

Ahh, and Ao Rui Peng looks great here). Very promising actor:)

Patience required. He only entered the show halfway through episode 2.

This show got rated poorly by others to the 5/10 range


Oh. Seems a pity.


I'm enjoying it too. Especially the fights. The myriad of skills and characters and backstories being introduced. Every single one interesting. I find myself riveted to the screen.


The bits of understated humor are an added bonus for me. As well as the banter between the lead and Wu Xin.


The friendship between the three chaps is the highlight for me thus far.


I also like how protective, in that nonchalant manner of his, the lead seems to be of his naive friend in red.


My only gripe? Liu Xue Yi...seventeen. No way. But that's just a nit.


"Make a run for it? Ok. Good luck."


"Knock him out? Ok. All the best."


The way they both immediately turned and flew away in sync leaving poor Lei Wujie with the bandits.


Fun show.


Alright, back to it. I'm only at episode 5.

Episode 7. That was rather sad. I was hoping he would stay. I had no idea the lead had grown so attached to his friend. He could not even look at him.


Episode 8. "Tomorrow..."


Dramatic pause.


"It'll rain." 


This show makes me laugh.

front 9 episodes are good , i'm holding the high rating of 8.0/10


some people may not like the magic fusion with swordfight , deviate from real wuxia theme

example how does they generate a flaming winged giant ,   phoenix , snow horses , flaming puma

this is going into the realm like the anime Shaman King where the fights are between the giant avatars drawing energy from their human caster

the top experts are given the title 仙  when their body still age , not real immortality

I don't like the acting, I hate the trope of Chinese TV series to have characters that acts really dumb as this guy in black and red.

Serious talk, and then all the sudden, abrupt comedy. I mean, :/


And the comedy music, is way too off putting for me.

i watched all 14 episodes back to back.. i find it not too bad.. it needs more depth..

i like it, esp the humour and puns.. 

looking forward to see how xiao ser will fight for himself to be reinstated as the sixth prince and also gain his internal martial strength back gradually..

Still on episode 17. Six fighting one. Six plus poison. Six plus poison plus some shady trick. Their teachers must be so proud.


A testament to her renown though. Folks are in awe of her.


I like her fight scenes. She executes the moves beautifully. That aloof and haughty demeanor. That believable way she wields the sword. That matter-of-fact confidence she has in her abilities. That refined disdain she has for her opponents. Love it.



I very much fear she's not going to make it this time :(

after the most recent ep25 ,
i rate this show 9.0/10
best show in recent few years , the previous show that had so much 江湖 was 新萧十一郎 2016
good flashback scenes for the child actors to shine

some parts are lacking that I could have raised the score to 10/10 perfect .....
music , lead character sacrifice , romance , tragic ..... these 4 points lacking , was better in 琉璃 2020 and 宸汐缘 2019
---- songs are appropriate for the show but not what I like , maybe my mistake to label it as a flaw
---- background music during fights are good
