Fate had never been kind to Ji Ning. Wracked by illnesses and infirm his entire life on Earth, Ning knew early on that he would die as a teenager. What he didn’t know was that there really was such a thing as life after death, and that the universe was a far larger place than he thought. A lucky twist of fate (one of the few in Ning’s life) meant that Ning was reborn into a world of Immortals and monsters, of Ki Refiners and powerful Fiendgods, a world where Dynasties lasted for millions of years. A world which is both greater and yet also smaller than he ever could imagine. He would have the opportunity to join them, and in this life, Ning swore to himself, he would never let himself be weak again! The Era he was born into was a Desolate one, but Ning would make it his era.

If you started to watch this or are thinking of watching it, do youself a favor and go read the webnovel. It is incredible and, although long, definitely worth the read even if you take your time, because I'm aware that it is fairly long and not a ...

Preliminary (5/19 eps)
I have read the novel and I wasn't expecting characters and story to be totaly same as novel. But... There is limit to how someone change a story, character structure. You can't just say this anime Desolate Era (The Legend of the Jade Sword) by using same names and some common scene from novel and leaving other things to your own choice. It's literally cheap conterfeit of the story and cheap adaption of that conterfeit. I watched lots of adaption of mangas and novels and I'm a person who respect their work and don't judge them much when ı found differences or other things I ...
