Tang San spent his life in the Tang Outer Sect, dedicated to the creation and mastery of hidden weapons. Once he stole the secret lore of the Inner Sect to reach the pinnacle of his art, his only way out was death. But after throwing himself off the deadly Hell's Peak he was reborn in a different world, the world of Douluo Dalu, a world where every person has a spirit of their own, and those with powerful spirits can practice their spirit power to rise and become Spirit Masters.
The spirit that awakens within Tang San is Blue Silver Grass, a useless spirit. Can he overcome the difficulties to reach the high ranks of Spirit Masters and bring the glory of the Tang Sect into this new world?
After reading the first few chapters, I was so intrigued by the story that I went ahead and read the original version in Chinese. Before I continue, you should understand that even though I can read and understand Chinese, I rarely read manhwa in Chinese. I always prefer reading English materials, even if the translation isn't that good. The fact that I would even do so should indicate how good the story is. Now, you might start to wonder why I only gave 7 points for the story even though I am praising it. You'll understand why once you read further.
So, I went ahead and read the Chinese version all the way to the latest chapter, which was chapter 140. At that point, Tang San had already reached 20 years old... Without including his previous life, it means that the manhwa has already covered 14 years of his life. When I first reached the latest chapter of the manhwa, I gave it an incredible score of 9. I would have given it a 10 but there were some flaws within the story. There were numerous points in the manhwa that simply glossed over what happened and left me confused, but even with these flaws, it was still incredible. So, why did I change my score?
I changed it because I went and read the novel.
I couldn't wait for the latest chapter to arrive, so I went ahead and read the novel. I needed to know what happened next and I was rewarded for it. The novel went through every single detail that the manhwa failed to deliver. It revealed many more details that didn't appear in the manhwa and explained the actions of the characters. The many plot holes that were in the manhwa were not in the novel. The manhwa tried to change the storyline in some parts and resulted in disastrous plot holes that appeared in future chapters. There were also quite a divergence in the mentality of the characters, especially the main character.
In the end, it was an interesting experience but failed to deliver in some parts. However, I would definitely recommended reading the novel.read more
This is an amazing Manga and I loved it so when I couldn't wait I decided to start reading the LN. The LN stated much better details and it wasn't made for young 13 year olds so it made more sense. Like when that scorpion interpreted Grandmaster and Erlong in the LN they were about to have sex which explained why Erlong was so pissed but in the Manga I was lost because all they did was sit next to each other. It made no sense that Erlong would be pissed cuz that was going nowhere anyway
Another point is the chapter where Tang San confessed to Xiao Wunand that whole spring love thing. There was nothing wrong with that even if they changed small details like the classroom setting but what pissed me off is that it skipped to the grandpa coming when Tang Beat Tai long. In the LN Tang beat Tai long then the dad came and Tang beat a rank 50 and then the grandpa came and all that stuff happened. In the LN it showcased Tang San badass by showing him beat a rank 50 and there was a little joke about how the father would come if the son lost, but in the manga it just skipped to the grandpa and left out everything else
Like I said the Manga is amazing, funny, and cool but after reading the LN I suggest that everyone who reads the manga read the LN because the Manga is rushed and changes as well as leaves out detail plus the LN is the original version. Think of it like this the book is always more detailed you just have to imagine all scenes and the movie is always rushed in comparison but gives you the scenes so u don't have to imagine it. Read bothe the LN and the Manga and you fall in love with this series

What started as a Chinese text was ported to the Korean manwha format and finally graced our screens in English, so why miss out?! Exactly, what started off as a peculiar reincarnation story, slowly transformed into a battle heavy sojourn that felt like one extended stream of leveling up and unraveling abilities.
In my personal opinion, it was quite enjoyable. A concoction of romance and action with hints of comedy, a deep rapport is quickly built between character dynamics as well as the readers. Initially, I was startled and, to be perfectly honest, intimidated by the amount of depth of the spirit chart that labelled the levels of the practitioners, however it quickly became clear that the reader is reacquainted with each person’s levels almost every chapter. To date there are no obvious omissions of time that present the story to be fractured, allowing for greater enjoyment and immersion.
The art is truly breathtaking and the innovation on an already saturated genre of manwha/manga brings with it a sense of exhilaration as the story relies on expedience and tension to launch the reader into a page-turning piece of fiction.
For an amazing story with great characters and even better art, look no further than...Douluo Dalu. read more
Well first off, I LOVE THIS MANGA!!! Some reasons why- the story is good. It's not super action themed or deep or dark and stuff so it feels like happy-ish. The art is awesome! It's isn't like normal manga so it takes a bit of getting used to to but it's good overall. Plus it COLORED, SO GREAT!! The charaters are all op. I LOVE that. Especially the main one. All the charaters are different from each other and are the basic generic but I really like that. It show some development I guess...AND SUPER DUPER EXTRA INPORTANT DETAIL IS THAT IT UPDATES DAILY!!! ONE OR MORE OMG.
