    watched first 4 episodes , quite good no need to fast forward
    the backstory is told by a few flashbacks

    summary:

    their fighting world is dominated by 6 specific talents
    strength
    hearing
    smell+poison
    running speed + jumping qing-gong
    hypnotism & casting illusion spell
    tactics or intelligence

    myth was every 100 years some talented guy will master 6 talents simultaneously while other fighters struggle with only a few
    the male lead character was a bio-experiment to achieve this and he escaped with the help of a black cloaked guy , but still limited by a set of arm and leg magical chains

    th story is fast , it's good, because usually drama lengthen the story and make boring

    some facts:
    - the novel itself is not finish yet
    - in novel, there are 7 souls, not 6 souls (or talents), dont know why they remove one, haha

    watched until 2/3 of the episodes

    quite good , I rate it 7.5/10
    some repetitive plot elements like endless time calling for medic to heal
    bad guys are obvious from the background music , the costume and physique matches the aura

    good plot twist , each baddie is higher than the previous

    literally "talk 2 hour, fight 5 minute"
    lots of repeated emo scene
    most fake was the beard guy having superspeed like "the flash" but getting surrounded by little foot-soldiers and surrender without a fight
    the emperor only have 2 subjects , many drama are susceptible to this oversimplification flaw

    main character duo are sweet

    last 4 episodes remain for me

    front 1/3 , 7.8 score
    middle 1/3 , 7.5 score
    last 1/3 , 7.0 score

    during the second half , the show lost it's main sweet romance line and revenge line
    screentime hijacked by the 2nd male character
    inconsistent battle prowess by the "bad guys" , sometimes appear superman , sometimes weak like normal villiagers

    completed the drama
    deduct another 2 points for the bad ending

    my final rating is 5/10

    bad points
    -main protagonist gave up his revenge mission
    -female lead died a few episodes before ending
    -from halfway onwards , 1male 1female supporting character had more screentime than the lead duo
    -routine getting injured and calling for medic
    -routine getting sad in past events
    -excessive use of greenscreen to reduce physical building in studio
    -inconsistent fighting capability of bad guys
    -over emphasis on "team of 4"
    -treating the audience like fools when all the brotherhood argument are explained as "pre-planned acting" through flashbacks

    good points
    +plot twists
    +bad guy leaders have the physique and costume
    +front half of the show have sweet romance
    +great outdoor scenery
    +around episode 43 there is a real fast horseriding scene by chumin actress , all other horseriding are fake with body double or filming technique


    at around episode 43-44 outdoor scene orange rocky canyon , zhaoxifan looks perfectly illuminated from forehead to waist , it looks like he was greenscreen added onto a high definition photo background
    the director went into bokeh frenzy to repeatedly blur the background out of focus

    there was also a scene around that episode where the camera angle became "computer game" CGI revisit back to zhaifengtang , from there I realize the perimeter fence was all fake CGI to shortcut lower cost skip building it , only the floor near the center is real

    the scriptwriter probably following a directive to never show protagonist successfully revenge against the emperor , instead spending full episodes explaining the need for emperor
    Sword Dynasty 剑王朝 from 4 months ago had the same flaw
    it's in line with the "no time travel" limit 8years ago , to limit the C audience imagination on "what could be if we rewrite history"

    supporting character override main character in screentime
    same flaw as 从前有座灵剑山 and 三千鸦杀
    Please get your own show.
    I'll fastforward if i see the same actor again.

    This series had so much potetional with the different abilities and all these tournament but they really drop the ball.

    It drags alot . Good thing is cast etc twists but they really couldve done better on fights scenes and training scenes.

    Characters do same thing and don't change much or show progress. Villains seems powerful but easy captured or same with main characters. Only main lead change clothes secondary characters doesnt seem to change clothes much.

    Really wish another company couldve picked this up and have higher budget. Couldve been like naruto or avatar last air bender.
