Tang San is one of Tang Sect martial art clan's most prestigious disciples and peerless in the use of hidden weapons. With high expectations, the sect's elders believe his future will be bright; yet Tang chooses to forsake this life at the cost of obtaining the sect's forbidden lore—an action punishable by death. Tang, now content with his ascension of knowledge, sees no reason to keep on living and jumps from Hell's Peak, but little did he know that that would not be the end of his existence.

In Douluo Continent, the strong prevail and the weak perish. Each person possesses an innate spirit, some of which can be cultivated and strengthened, bestowing its user with various benefits. Those who were born with such spirits can become Spirit Masters, a profession regarded as one of the continent's most noble.

Tang, reincarnated into this strange world, knows only the life of a blacksmith's son. At the age of six, he takes part in the Spirit Master ceremony, and discovers his spirit is Blue Silver Grass—supposedly the world's most useless spirit. In contrast, however, he possesses strong spirit power. Now, aided by the memories of his previous life as well, Tang's future as a Spirit Master is in no way bleak.

The first impression of Douluo Dalu wasn't amazing. They say that the first 20 seconds of a show determines whether the show is good or not. And in most cases, that first 20-second rule is quite accurate from my experiences.

Art (5/10)
The animation and the art style were hard to convert into. I didn't like it at first, but I know I got myself into it and I shouldn't have expected much from it. It's not good but it's not something that I looked for so, in the end, it slightly matters, but it doesn't ruin the show. You can have a good story with terrible read more

It took some time to get used to the 3D animation, however after a few episodes it was totally fine; almost like watching cut scenes from a Teen rated fantasy/martial arts video game. The fight scenes are very fast paced: kinetic and filled with bright neon colors and moving particles to the point of being distracting or disorienting at times. Nonetheless, they are often exciting and fun to watch. Facial expressions can be stiff especially when characters are expressing affection or frustration which creates some disconnection as a viewer.

Most of the female characters look the same and have relatively weak personalities (save for 2 read more

Chinese Harry Potter. This is somewhat how I felt watching the show at times, because of the nice and well-thought adventure and story, in a beautiful and complex world : a believable world.
Now the problem is, to get there, the viewers have to ... cultivate (^^') an incredible amount of patience.
Because this show is also a perfect exemple as to why a carefully craft story can be crushed by its production nefarious flaws. And there are numerous, these flaws. Here's some example : in a video player, one episode is about 20~24 min. From these 20 min, remove 3 min for opening theme+previous read more

Something that I like about this anime is its art style. Before I watched Doulou Dalu, I only liked the regular 2D art style that most anime used. However, it seems to work for this type of genre. It makes the fight scenes cooler than they would've been in 2D.

One of the only issues I have is that none of the characters really develop except for the MC; everyone has the same personality.

Overall, it's a great anime. The MC retained his knowledge from his past life and uses it to his advantage. It's very satisfying seeing him becoming stronger and unlocking new abilities. For those read more
