Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation Synopsis
As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei Wuxian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan Wangji, his archenemy. This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei Wuxian slowly realizes that Lan Wangji, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei Wuxian than he is letting on.
A short intro, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation is based on a popular Chinese web novel with the same title by author Mo Xiang Tong Xiu (墨香铜臭). The Chinese anime adaptation of the novel had its first season premiered on July 9, 2019. It runs for a total of 15 episodes and ended on October 6, 2018 with such a fantastic and intense finale.
What about you guys? What are your thoughts about the anime in general? With how awesome its season one finale is, we could seriously expect for something even more amazing coming on our way when the Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji return next year for Mo Dao Zu Shi season 2.
