  1. I’m disappointed. The CGI idea was stolen from Riot, everything is far from the original novel by Hudie Lan. I hate seeing Yang Yang as Ye Xiu, what an eyesore.

  2. I already watched the first 8 episodes. CGI is good. The actors fit the characters very well. And the story is entertaining though there are some changes from the novel/anime, not a problem..

    • I agree about the CGI! I feel as if the CGI is head and shoulders above the usual TV fare. I went into this with low hopes and am honestly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. All the actors are decent and fit their characters, the editing is well done, and the plot is smooth. I generally don’t watch this type of show because I don’t game at all, but it surpassed my expectations.

      I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light tv show. Nothing deep or transcendent about this, but it is highly satisfying.
