This is your typical action story right here folks, one man is betrayed, runs off to another city, makes allies and then gets his revenge. Simple right?
Well maybe there's a little bit more to it then that :P
The art in this blows everything away, the detail and how this author released every page in colour is mind boggling. The colours are so rich and done so well that even if you don't want to read it at least you can admire the work that's been put into this.
Now this is where the fan service comes in. The main cast of characters are very likeable and stylish to boot. Chen Luo Jun reminds me of Squall from FFVIII, just not wimpy and a bad-ass with white hair.
I enjoyed reading this series and still plan to read it. Currently it's up to 32 chapters and counting and finished a volume, which with that is a whole new arc.
Lets get to the flaws.
The story is typical, in some cases you can tell where it's going.
The character development only scratches the surface with some of them and we don't get to see much of their pasts, for example Xin Yi.
The biggest thing is the pacing, one minute it's going slow next minute it's going off like Usain Bolt. It tries to throw in a few more things like romance and comes out from no where and seems rushed.
I would give this 7/10 but the art work itself is like a star that outshines anything being released right now, especially in colour.
