I'm writing this review after watching all 3 seasons of the anime as well as all the specials that are available at this moment.

This review will be spoiler free, so feel free to read before you watch.

The first season of Doupo Cangqiong is garbage, there are no other ways to put it. The story is stale and have been done many times before. Normally I don't have a problem with overused stories as long as the execution is good, but as you guessed it, the execution is also trash.

This story starts with our protagonist Xiao, Yan. When he was just a young boy, he read more

It's normal for the protagonist of a cultivation story to conveniently have some mechanic that allows him to level up faster and gain high level skills and items, but there needs to be a balance against perceived innate talent and hard work. If too little sets him apart from the others, then the protagonist seems undeserving of being called a protagonist. But if too much help is granted, then he doesn't seem like a protagonist by his own merit. In other cultivation stories, there's always a reason why the protagonist is seemingly overpowered, whether because he transmigrated (i.e. isekai), reincarnated, is actually a sect leader read more

I'm going to preface this review by saying that I've read the web novel and the manhua for Battle Through the Heavens, and both are quite excellent and are among my favorite xianxia series. This anime adaptation however, is quite horrific: not only is the editing incredibly messy, with a lot of abrupt cuts that interrupt the flow, but the characters act nothing like their source material counterparts and entire scenes progress in a way that is hackneyed and incomprehensible.

Do yourself a favor and pick up the webnovel for the plot points that the 1st season covers, and start watching from the ONA special. Because read more

As someone who is familiar with the Douluo Dalu series, this story doesn't feel quite refreshing or original. Despite that, it's highly enjoyable, hence I finished it in a couple of hours.

Story [6]:
The story is like something I have seen before, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as it is done right. So far, the story is good, but not outstanding. There are things I personally would like to see go in a different direction, but for now these are OK.

Art [7]:
This series art isn't your typical 2D anime, instead it's more 3Dish. I personally appreciate the 3D animation and art style. read more
