After being defeated by the leader of the Beimu clan, Mount Xuandu's chief disciple Shen Qiao falls off a cliff and nearly dies from his injuries. Unfortunately, the ruthless Cleansing Moon sect leader Yan Wushi, known for his cunning and skills, chances upon him and comes up with a sinister plan: turn the benevolent disciple into a vengeful cultivator who could one day become a worthy rival.

Shen Qiao is thrown headfirst into a world of betrayal and deception, contrasting with his once-strong beliefs that good could exist in everyone. As he encounters further hardships that push him to his wits' end, Shen Qiao is faced with the decision of continuing to uphold his kind nature—despite the cruel reality he has been shown—or giving in to the deceitful scheme of the spiteful Yan Wushi.

Thousand Autumns -- or more literally, Heart of the Sword of the Land (Shan1 He2 means mountains and rivers, describing a vast land or perhaps country in general) -- is a nuanced approach to morality and friendship. Shen Qiao, the sect leader of the Xuandu Mountains leads a hermit lifestyle, believing good to be free of worldly desires. He carries a sword engraved with the words "Suffering For All", struggling to grasp their full meaning. When a barbaric northern ethnic tribe conspires to poison and assassinate him, he is saved by the leader of the evil Huan Yue sect Yan Wushi. Though his sect is ...

First of all I would like to start by saying that I am a hardcore fujoshi i.e. a yaoi/Boy's Love(BL) lover. I started watching this donghua because I saw that it was based off of a bl novel. I knew NOTHING about the story prior to starting this donghua since I hadn't read the novel.
After watching the first episode, three things were clear to me : 1) the art was great, 2) the OP and ED were really catchy and melodious, 3) the story was interesting. By the first 5 episodes I was in love with Shen Qiao and Yan Wushi's characters and the relationship ...

As an adaptation of the novel <Thousand Autumns> this only gets a 4/10. If I were rating it as a stand alone show, I'd give it a 5 or 6 out of 10. My review is spoiler free for both the donghua and novel.

Story: 4/10 Compared to the novel, the pacing is extremely rushed. Every episode features one of the climactic moments from the novel, so the show just feels like a montage of all the cool fight scenes, with very little down time in between. For context, many of these fights happen weeks if not months apart from each other but the donghua ...
