Hey guys, it’s your Yu-senpai again and I am back for another overview on one of the Chinese anime coming this 2021 that we should look forward to watch. It’s Dawang Raoming (Da Wang Rao Ming) or also known as Spare Me, Great Lord! Wow, that sure sounds obnoxious and at first, I thought we will be having another hilarious donghua here just like You Yao (Are You Okay?) but it seems that such is not the case. However, this new donghua promises a fun and exciting cultivation story that is unique only to Chinese animation.
In line with the upcoming donghua adaptation of Dawang Raoming, we would like to share some details to guide you on whether you have to include the series in your plan-to-watch list of Chinese anime in 2021.
Dawang Raoming / Spare Me, Great Lord! Overview
The upcoming donghua is adapted from a Chinese web novel of the same title, written by author The Speaking Pork Trotter (who also wrote the novel The First Order).
The novel also received a manhua adaptation in 2019 with the same title and was published by Tencent Comics.
As the superpower awoke, everyone was sparing no effort to cultivate. Lu Shu was the only one who could get stronger by collecting others’ negative feelings and calling people names! All he ever wanted was to protect his little sister, but no one could resist the trend of the world… Well, he’d just do what he had to do and thus become the strongest! Are you ready to welcome the “Super Demon” Lu Shu?Source: Qidian
Upon reading the synopsis, the first thing that comes into my head is that this resembles the Full-Time Magister isn’t it? We have superpowers and cultivation, and a little sister that needs to be protected. However, Dawang Raoming seems to promise some mild drama and a whole lot of action. With plenty of cultivation donghua out there, it’s quite hard to distinguish which one is good, but one thing I am sure of, Dawang Raoming is one of the donghua this year that we have to keep an eye on.

On August 8, 2020; Tencent unveiled that Dawang Raoming is getting a donghua adaptation and is scheduled for release on December 3, 2021.
