One will to create oceans. One will to summon the mulberry fields.

One will to slaughter countless devils. One will to eradicate innumerable immortals.

Only my will… is eternal.

A Will Eternal tells the tale of Bai Xiaochun, an endearing but exasperating young man who is driven primarily by his fear of death and desire to live forever, but who deeply values friendship and family.

Giving score of 7 based off the first 4 episodes.

If I had to explain this anime. It's like looking out a window at the ocean and beach. You have an amazing, but scaled down, view.
The Novel is like being at the beach with not just the scenery in front, but unlimited all around. There is depth in the wind, salt air, sounds, water, waves, foam, and birds.

Don't get me wrong the Novel is amazing. There is a reason the novel is on the top of most charts.
Just the a slice of scenery from the novel makes for a fair-to-good anime and it's read more

Remember Zenitsu from Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)? That really cowardly kid that becomes super powerful when the plot allows for it, that switches on in key moments but is otherwise an annoying comedic relief that does nothing but stall the plot? Now imagine if he was the protagonist instead of the angsty Tanjiro, going through similar trials where he must learn to use his powers, in a world without all the zombies but equally punishing, yet has the same amount of plot armor in the name of comedic relief.

That's Yi Nian Yong Heng, or A Will Eternal. The world is a typical Chinese Cultivation read more

It is harem. It is romance. Once again, MAL, you've done me in with your wrong tagging. I hope someone will have corrected the tags by the time this review is up.

There are a handful of things I've logged in to say here:

Just to state the obvious, this anime is targeted at Chinese audiences. It is based off a novel by the same name (of which you may find more detailed information on Novelupdates). The directors obviously didn't intend to include the English audiences as part of their target audience, so to watch it, you have to have a certain degree of knowledge on the read more

My current review is based of the first 4 episodes that I've watched.

I have to say the anime really blew my mind. It was much better than what I initially expected.

Story: 7/10

Having read the novel, I would say this anime is quite faithful following the original plot of the novel.

A Will Eternal tells the story of a simple village boy, through a fateful encounter, gained the opportunity to step onto the path to become an Immortal. The first season depicts the life of the boy in an Immortal Sect, it shows the various workings of the Sect, the people and the locations within. read more
