In the far reaches of the dark and frozen universe, nine enormous dragon corpses were tied with an ancient bronze coffin. It seems that they were set there since the birth of the universe. Such an astonishing scene was captured by a space probe floating in outer space.

Nine dragons and the mysterious bronze coffin made people wonder whether they came back to ancient times or just reached the other shore of the universe. A giant mythical world was unfolded, where immortality gradually appeared and paranormal events continuously occurred.

Countless people started to find their own tracks (The Dao) in such a mythical realm. Their passion was like a turbulent ocean wave that would never cease. The heat in their blood was like erupting volcanoes. Their desire for power and immortality dragged them down to the chasm without knowing it.

Thirty-three classmates held a reunion after graduating. Their friendship was tested, as the bronze coffin took them away from earth and arrived on another unknown planet. The desire for living forced them to follow the path of the ancient gods. Entering a new world of cultivation, will any of them reach immortality, or will they all die along the way?

Preliminary (23/104 eps)
Beware of rating/dropping this anime too soon. I almost made the mistake of doing so.

To be more clear, the first 7-8 episodes are COMPLETELY different from the remaining episodes. Patience is key— they really took their time in the “origin story” or prologue of sorts (the first 7 or 8 episodes). Honestly it might have been a little too much — I bet many watchers would drop and underrate the show before then. I almost did. So basically, in my opinion the first 2-2.5hours are kinda boring, and don’t contribute a ton to the overall story—it also is fairly confusing, I didn’t really connect ...

Preliminary (41/104 eps)
"Not all things will start great then ends great, and not all things also start bad then ends bad." - me.

Although this show doesn't end yet (as of the time of writing), I just realized it on this particular donghua after watching 41 episodes that this show is really good! Best donghua in terms of animation so far imo (better than mortal's journey to immortality even if they are somewhat alike). There is no stutter in their motions. It's very fluid even the way the mouth and body moves. It's just that, many people dropped this because of very long prologue/intro that took more or ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (1/104 eps)
Perfect world, Shrouding the heaven, Sacred ruins. Are part of the 3 series total written by the same author. They are related to each other and have correlation to each other. In other words this donghua will contain element from Perfect World and Sacred ruins. It is a long series and is expected to be. If you are impatient with plot or slow development look elsewhere. As a 3 series story it is expected to be very LONG. Certain things can change depends on animation and airing of the studio. Hope for the best that they sticks to the original for the future. Otherwise just ...
