In his past life, although too weak to protect his home when it counted, out of grave determination Nie Li became the strongest Demon Spiritist and stood at the pinnacle of the martial world. However, he lost his life during the battle with the Sage Emperor and six deity-ranked beasts.

His soul was then brought back to when he was still 13 years old. Although he's the weakest in his class with the lowest talent, having only a red soul realm and a weak one at that, with the aid of the vast knowledge which he accumulated from his previous life, he decided to train faster than anyone could expect. He also decided to help those who died nobly in his previous life to train faster as well.

He aims to protect the city from the coming future of being devastated by demon beasts and the previous fate of ending up destroyed. He aims to protect his lover, friends, family and fellow citizens who died in the beast assault or its aftermath. And he aims to destroy the so-called Sacred family who arrogantly abandoned their duty and betrayed the city in his past life.

Mixed Feelings
Yaoshenji, or Tales of Demons and Gods, is one of those new Chinese anime that I really want to like, but really can't bring myself to. As an adaptation of a popular web-novel and manga, it already has really good plot behind it. However, the choices that the animation studio has chosen have severely undercut this massive advantage.

One of the most glaring problems is the length of each episode. Episodes are around 7 minutes long on average, but if you consider that the opening and ending animations take up 2 minutes, then you're left with just 5 minutes of actual storyline per episode. While this ...

This is the first anime that made me look for the manga, then the light novel. The plot is captivating for my preference and easily made me look pass the flaws of the animation. Unfortunately, the author did not complete his story and has decided to drop it... which is severely depressing it'd take years for me to move on.

Animation wise, 7mins episode, this shit is undeserving to the story. 3D animation does look good but not very smooth. Doesn't have unnecessary flashy scenes and keep to the plot, which is something i cannot find in many anime. First few episodes move at a ...

I stumbled across Tales Of Demons And Gods primarily by mistake due to a recommendation on a website. The visual premise was similar to Naruto, so I thought why not try this chinese ;anime; out?

The show uses a lot from spiritual concepts originated from China. The plot is very vague and not well expressed. It's hard to understand why Nie Li lacks soul power as its not even described properly. That's mostly due to poor world building and my lack of knowledge about Taoism. Also, notice how Nie Li is a genius and has only begun to be noticed now.

The Art is pretty mediocre ...
