In the modern cultivation world, everywhere is law of the jungle, everyone feels insecure. After saving a cultivatior girl, the security guard Ma Yingxiong accidentally starts the journey of practicing cultivation.
I didn't have too many expectations for “Wo De Tian Jie Nu You” (我的天劫女友). I merely was interested in it because it was a Chinese production. Surprisingly though, the anime had more good points than I thought there would be.
The story was ok, had nothing special and was very predictable. The main male character, Li Ying Xiong, inadvertently steals a part of the girl MC's, Lu Zi's, powers. Thereafter, he was forced to either die or form a contract with her and begins his journey as a cultivator -- only to find that he has this invincible power (or plot
armor) like Kirito. Then, this stereotypical old bad sage-like dude who wants to possess some tremendous spiritual power tries to steal Li Ying Xiong and Lu Zi's great spiritual powers by killing them. That's basically the main storyline, plus some ecchi (but not so revealing that it makes you puke) scenes.
The animation and art are not outstanding but bearable to the eyes -- doesn't get in the way. There may be some steamy moments that you would relish, but they're not my cup of tea.
I love the ED song "An Nian" (暗恋”), but my favourite song in the series is by far an insert character song for Ru Yue entitled "Shan Feng" (山风) -- just because its Celtic-like tune, backtracked with a solacing harp, reflected the character's relationship with the dragon snake so well. Overall, the soundtrack was great and suited the moods of certain scenes quite well.
All characters in the story don't have vivid personalities. In fact, there's this indolent, rich red-haired womanizer who kind of ticked me off. However, backstories really gave meaning to the female MC's qualities like Lu Zi's firm look but fragile heart and Ru Yue's defiance and independence (Ru Yue's backstory with dragon snake lady almost made me cry). Thus, the sentiments that we audiences develop with the girls' tough lives trigger us to root for Li Ying Xiong's heroic efforts to protect these two girls -- although we know that he is a Deus Ex Machina. In addition, there were some humorous stoic characters.
The anime was, without a doubt, very enjoyable for me. There were some silly stoic characters who really cracked me up. There were some sweet scenes of Li Ying Xiong and Lu Zi together, and there were some bittersweet scenes like the flashback to Ru Yue's past. Throughout the entire show, I felt like I was tasting a congruent mix of vanilla and salt. The characters interacted well and were entertaining, but the story was poorly paced and loses some of its excitement due to Li Ying Xiong's insane Kirito-like development in strength.
Overall, I'd give “Wo De Tian Jie Nu You” (我的天劫女友) a 7 out of 10. The character backstories and the fitting soundtrack made the anime more than a mediocre 5 out of 10 in my eyes.
