I’ve caught up with Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s works! Woot!
I’m done reading the MTL and now, I’ve also caught up to the recently translated chapters of all three novels. That includes the extras as well. In case you’re wondering why I’m still following the translations, it’s because I feel like I’ve missed a lot of finer details (and names!) in MTL.
While SV was a little easier to read via MTL (mainly because I only have to read a couple more chapters before the end), MDZS and TGCF were downright difficult. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the names screwed me up every single time.
If you have the time or suffering from withdrawal symptoms like me, you could check out Yume-chan’s fan song translation posts. The songs are wonderful and the PVs… my gosh, the PVs! They are freaking amazing! Some videos are just… wow.
With that said, I’ve updated my posts with my after-thoughts. Check them out on the links below:
I got too curious.
Seeing a flood of The Founder of Diabolism (let me call it MDZS for the rest of the post) tweets on my Twitter timeline piqued my curiosity. I didn’t understand what it was and even after poking around the internet, it looked like something I wouldn’t be interested (ha!) so I ignored it. But since I was drowning in feels after reading Grabbing your hand, dragging you away novel, I needed a filler. So I somehow found my way to MDZS again.
The Founder of Diabolism in a nutshell:
From Novel Updates page:
As the grandmaster who founded demonic cultivation, 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 sects—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…
