Also known as MDZS, the blockbuster danmei/Boys' Love novels from China that inspired comics, animation, and the live-action series The Untamed--which amassed billions of views, including on Netflix! This historical fantasy tale of two powerful men who find each other through life and death is now in English, for the very first time. Wei Wuxian was once one of the most outstanding men of his generation, a talented and clever young cultivator who harnessed martial arts, knowledge, and spirituality into powerful abilities. But when the horrors of war led him to seek a new power through demonic cultivation, the world's respect for his skills turned to fear, and his eventual death was celebrated throughout the land. Years later, he awakens in the body of an aggrieved young man who sacrifices his soul so that Wei Wuxian can exact revenge on his behalf. Though granted a second life, Wei Wuxian is not free from his first, nor the mysteries that appear before him now. Yet this time, he'll face it all with the righteous and esteemed Lan Wangji at his side, another powerful cultivator whose unwavering dedication and shared memories of their past will help shine a light on the dark truths that surround them. This Chinese xianxia fantasy novel series built around the romanticized love between two men (danmei) has been translated into numerous languages and spawned a multimedia franchise that has taken the globe by storm, including the massively popular live-action series The Untamed available now on Netflix, YouTube, and more. The Seven Seas English-language edition will include exclusive, all-new cover art from Jin Fang (jinzillaa), interior illustrations from Marina Privalova (BaoshanKaro), and a translation by Suika (yummysuika) with editor Pengie (pengiesama).

I finished the first volume of GRANDMASTER OF DEMONIC CULTIVATION‘s official English translation this morning, with minimal help from my sleepy dog. This version‘s a lot more polished than the unofficial fan translation I read a couple years back. I dunno if the contents got another round of edits or if these translators interpreted things differently, but I definitely appreciate the lessened homophobia. It seriously jarred me back then.

This was forced on me ahem, I mean recommended to me by a 2021 Year 12 student who generously gave every book I suggested over the past 4 years a go. So it‘s my turn. Originally posted to a Chinese online site, it has finally been translated and published as a physical text. I have waited ages for it to arrive (#bookdepo). I know very little about it. #goinginblind #currentlyreading #volumeone #translated. I actually have no idea what tags to add…

KristiAhlers I have this one on my stack of books to read! I‘m looking forward to it. Something different. A book seller recommended it to me 😂 11mo
