It was decent, but probably only becouse I love martial arts and have become sick of all the Natzu's , Narutos and Luffys in japanese anime. What I generally enjoy most in anime is the growth part, I want to follow a character over a long period of time and watch him evolve. This provides that.

Its worth a watch if you've run out of martial arts animes. The recepy has been seen before in others (and better) anime, MC gets shamed, cultivate, become stonger, fight an enemy, rinse and repeat.

Was gonna write a short bloody review, but apparently I have to write you read more

The other review is correct. This show is the quintessential cultivation shounen and utterly mediocre. The protagonist seems weak and has to work his way up, but like the Nine-Tails in Naruto, or the last of the Saiyans in Goku, or the half demon of Ichigo, the protagonist here also has a reason for why he develops so many OP skills in such a short time period. What the show doesn't adequately explain (but the Wiki does) is that prior to the story in the anime, the protagonist was a cultivation master that got killed.

I've been watching a lot of cultivation donghua similar to this but this one hardly lures me in like other ones. For this type, I would recommend Martial Master aka 武神主宰 way more. That one lured me in from the beginning. The beginning story is already pretty similar to other similar donghua but sadly nothing interesting imo.

MC is naturally OP and has some kind of past life, as well, and his substantial knowledge helps him deal with his enemies.

I only pushed myself through this season because there are 4 seasons so it's been going on for so long I thought it would be really good.
