Along an empty road in the rural countryside, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji stumble across a stone plaque that reads "Yi City." Still on their quest to unravel the mystery behind the cursed severed arm, they venture into the deserted city to obtain further leads.

However, with the appearance of a mysterious new cultivator, the demonic arm investigation leads Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji to a plot that threatens the cultivation world as they know it. The gravity of the new situation escalates when the two find it involves the chief cultivator of the renowned Lanling Jin Sect—Jin Guangyao.

As the pair continue to piece together the crucial conspiracies of the cultivation history, their friends and colleagues grow suspicious of their motives. With the world against him, Wei Wuxian must prove he is not the demonic sorcerer people believe him to be to regain their trust and save the cultivation world from the sinister evil lurking within it.

‘‘Great news! Wei WuXian has died!“
This heartbreaking phrase was the start of a beautiful and breathtaking journey, but every journey must come to an end and so does the story of The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation. Seeing the show I love the most come to an end makes me sad, but I’m thankful that I was able to watch a fantastic novel adaption of one of my favorite books.

The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation tells the story of someone who cannot let go & the someone who’s pain and suffering still grows. It’s so much more than just a read more

Before ushering my criticism, I would like to register that despite the flaws, this is a well above average show and is worth watching. I particularly like the artwork and overall aesthetic of the show.

That being said, I'm somewhat disapointed with the final season. While i would rate the first 2 seasons of this show among the best in anime in the last decade, this final season dropped significantly in quality.

Firstly the story in this season is rushed. For the sake of comparison, in the live action version the story in this season accounts for half of the show runtime, read more

This final season along with the previous two seasons are truly masterpiece!

Mo Dao Zu Shi series is the first donghua I've ever watched, but I knew it's the best donghua ever made. Thanks to Mo Dao Zu Shi, the past several years I have been fangirling over WangXian (Lan Wangji x Wei Wuxian). All started with the first season, then I read the original novel.. And then manhua version (I skip the Untame, because it's the least accurate adaptation of the original novel--and live action version isn't my cup of tea).

Compared to the first two seasons, this final season shows more of WangXian's relationships. Not read more

Hello! Just a random watcher/reviewer. This is my first time of doing a review, so forgive me if this review is not helpful or rather not full of context or such.

First off, this Anime might be my first Chinese Anime adaptation that I've watched, and heck it was kinda worth it. It was recommended by a friend of mine who have already finished the novel long since the last chapter ended. So while watching, I have someone who could give me some additional info's that wasn't included in the anime. Although I loved the series, there were just some things I've noticed, especially this last read more
