Douluo Dalu 2: Jueshi Tangmen Anime Announcement
During the Tencent Video Animation Annual Conference last August 8, 2021; it was revealed that Douluo Dalu 2: Jueshi Tangmen is among the upcoming projects from the Chinese giant company. This is a big surprise but at the same time expected, knowing how the ongoing Soul Land donghua adaptation had been dominating the market among local viewers of Chinese animation.
Douluo Dalu 2: Jueshi Tangmen or Soul Land 2: The Unrivaled Tang Sect is based on the 2nd novel of Tang Jia San Shao from the Soul Land series. While the first series revolves around Tang San, Xiao Wu, and his companions; Douluo Dalu 2: Jueshi Tangmen will highlight their descendants in action after thousands of years had passed to reignite the glory of the Tang Sect which has already declined. It will continue delivering the same old antics from its prequel which includes a battle competition of academies and sects, magical technology, martial spirits, and its signature romance cliche. The novel had been published in 2012 with over 622 chapters and can be read on Qidian, Novel Updates and Wuxiaworld.
Aside from the upcoming donghua, the novel was also adapted into manhua which was published on November 22, 2012 with story and art by Jueshi Tang Men Manhua Chuangzuo Zu, and original story credited to Tang Jian San Shao.
