Mixed Feelings
I'm going to preface this review by saying that I've read the web novel and the manhua for Battle Through the Heavens, and both are quite excellent and are among my favorite xianxia series. This anime adaptation however, is quite horrific: not only is the editing incredibly messy, with a lot of abrupt cuts that interrupt the flow, but the characters act nothing like their source material counterparts and entire scenes progress in a way that is hackneyed and incomprehensible.

Do yourself a favor and pick up the webnovel for the plot points that the 1st season covers, and start watching from the ONA special. Because of the terrible feedback from Chinese audiences, Tencent switched animation studios for the ONA special and season 2, which are vastly improved and are actually quite good.
