The Master of Diabolism

As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was back-stabbed 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 clans—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.

Watched the donghua a month ago, wouldn't even think about picking up the novel coz I dun have the time BUT I can do with the manhua AND today lads I finally sat through 160++ chapters of this amazing masterpiece. Lemme tell you something darl, if you're brewing a potion you'd be mixing in a VARIETY aight? This story is a combination of ALL variety you can find out there: action, zombified corpses, BL;), chibi comedy, cultivation, & ancient mythical elements.  The author doesn't spare a single one-dimensional trait on these well-rounded characters, their change in nature is UNDERSTANDABLE and not without grounds. There are flashbacks that detail what drives these folks to act like the way they do in the present, some flashback arcs were seen through Wei Ying's "telepathic possession" method called "empathy"; and there we can see him trapped in the owner's mind as an onlooker soul whilst being the cutie that he is. Speaking of cuteness certain flashbacks show Lan Zhan's budding tsundere feelings for our denser-than-ocean MC and it's honestly ADORABLE AF. The arcs will send you through a whirlwind of emotions then fluff you up again with some *gay* tension... like to reward you for making it through the heartbreaking chapters or sth. To finalise my thoughts I just wanna applaud the attention given to the other characters again coz it's not just fixated on the two main's slow burn progress but also gives chance for these other characters' emotions to flourish as well. If you only tried the animation medium AND NOT the novel, this manhua is enough to clear up your previous confusion on the names/courtesy names/titles. Since the chapters are long enough for you to get used to the names and once you DO get the hang of it ya can pat yourself on the back for having such affinity with these complicated designations lol.
