I like it a lot! i didn't watch anime last year or very little so I had no idea what this was about. I kept seeing images of lang wangji and wei wuxian all over tumblr, so i was curious, but i thought to myself, it might just be a queerbait anime like almost all sports naime and shows like that, but apparently they are a couple? obviously in china they have to censor because of the rampant homophobia but i am happy to know this power couple is canon lmao.

Yalthamen said:your explanation helped me a whole lot. I don't know why i struggle so hard learning the different names... chinese seems hard...
Yalthamen said:In the episode wei Wuxian did something to see in the memories of the zombie to see who had gotten him there or something, then when he saw who it was he seemed really confused... damn maybe i need to rewatch the episode.....
This episode was great; Wei wuxian is so good looking? I mean all of the characters are but damn. Boy I never knew that that kid that helped him and cheng would be that zombie general. I cried a bit.
Can anyone explain to me if the guy that kept him alive was the leader of the guys in yellow or the one who they were fighting in the first episode of this season? i got so confused...
What guy who kept who alive? The guys in yellow are the LanlingJin Sect. In the flashbacks, their sect leader is Jin Guangshan, the guy holding the folding fan who says "I pity Young Master Wei wound up this way, demonic cultivation corrupts the spirit, etc etc"
Okay, so here's how it went down:
At the beginning of S2, they're fighting Wen Ruohan, the leader of the QishanWen Sect. At this point, Wen Ning is still alive-alive. When Wen Ruohan is killed, the Wen Sect falls.
After the war to defeat the Wens, the LanlingJin Sect imprisons Wen Ning and other nonviolent Wens, which is the flashback you saw on Episode 5. Wen Ning is killed. Wei Wuxian shows up to save them, and turns Wen Ning into a ferocious corpse.
Later, when the world turns against Wei Wuxian, the LanlingJin Sect (the guys in yellow) gets Wen Ning back and tells everyone they're going to "kill him" (aka destroy his corpse, since he's already dead lol) but they secretly kept him alive for research and experimentation.
I would say the langling sect is disgusting for experimenting and keeping alive a corpse, but then I guess wei wuxian is also doing the same thing since he is a demonic cultivator huh
It was pretty different. Wei Wuxian brought him back and returned his consciousness to him. He did use Wen Ning as a weapon (which is why Wen Ning is the feared "Ghost General" who the whole world wanted dead) but generally saved Wen Ning and allowed him to continue living. After Wei Wuxian returns and realizes Wen Ning was never "destroyed", he notices Wen Ning had lost his consciousness. While WWX was dead and WN was being kept for experimentation, he had those nails put into his head and turned into a mindless ferocious corpse, and was wrapped in those chains, etc. So WWX was much more humane toward him, while he was basically tortured for experimentation the entire time WWX was dead. Now that WWX pulled out the nails at the end of episode 5, next you'll get to see Wen Ning get his consciousness back 😁
No problem I'm a fanatic about this series so I don't mind explaining anything lmao 🧡
If you enjoy it I highly recommend reading the novel! If you like BL stories, the novel is sooo romantic. Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji have an amaaazing love story, and that element makes the entire plot much deeper. The novel is also much more intense in general, and the show will make 100x more sense if you read it haha. Yeah it's a shame about Chinese censorship, but rest assured it is a very gay in canon lmao
I like BL but it is very hard to find good stuff with actual healthy ships, so im happy this is one <3

I really, really, really love the first season... But this season is shit.
you said that for my sequel record?
Well, anyway... I took the first season like a summary, so all ok with that season. Now, this second season is too summary for me, the best drama moments of MDZS happened on this season and were chopped without mercy... BUT, after 6-7, I realized this is not a summary, it is more like a minirework. So, actually I don't care anymore.
"is shit" now is "it´s ok for a minirework"
Watch THE UNTAMED.
