Broadcast in January from 2017, the new series was also an adaptation of an online martial arts fantasy by Tian Can Tu Dou.
Resembling other kung fu series, the animation is about a young genius' journey on his way to becoming a martial arts master.
Although it only got 5.4 points out of 10 on Douban, the series still attracted a large number of followers. According to the statistics on iQIYI, the first season was viewed more than 700 million times.
This kind of adapted series is always based on a popular online novel that often has had a large readership. The faithful readers often become the audiences of the TV adaptation. Compared to those who never read the original work, the formers are more critical of the animation version.
"I have no idea how many fans of the novel have been hurt by the adaption. The atmosphere of the beginning is nice, yet the animation did not catch the essential characters of the protagonists," user Linglan commented on Douban.
