    • And after reading can’t help but “fangirl” all over. So Awesome!

      Manhua might have ‘spoiled’ things but epic all around. And this new story arc is much better represented (or started at least) in manhua than the continental spirit master competition was.

    • Wait for things to reveal, why are you asking? Someone might add a spoiler.

      I think you can make a educted guess how Xiou Wu is a human now (if you have read too much Wuxia and saw how no-human turn human).

      PS: It will probably be similar but with a twist.

  4. -screams- thank you very much!
    ah, i had suspected that Tang San had known Xiao Wu’s secret,though i didn’t know what that secret was. The appearance of two hundred thousand spirit rings?! Also, Tang Hao!! -trembles with excitement- definitely one of the best chapters! For the love between Tang San and Xiao Wu, for the solidarity of the Shrek Seven Devils, the two hundred thousand spirit rings, and Tang Hao’s appearance!-screams again-

    • I don’t think so.Tang Hao was really powerful before Tang San’s mother death. Thus he had already obtained the Red Ring. How? Still a mystery but maybe…….

      PS: I don’t think things about Tang San’e mom has been cleared yet. BTW did you read Manhua and come here? If not good. Else your assumption is based on stuff revealed on Manhua.

      • i only read until the start of the second fase of the tournament
        after this i got bored and stoped

        i think this because they say in the ln something like he went in reclusion not much time after he becomes a douluo 90+ and he leaves the sky school because of problems with the pontiff and they are the cause of tang san mom death

        the one who say this is the prince to tang san
        but he didnt know any further

        first i think his mother is the last supreme pontiff but now i think the pontiff killed her

  9. God damn it, Xiao Wu is going to die in the final battle and become Tang San’s final ring, isn’t she. Ugh.

    • What I am Saying: Too far, not even close. I think.

      What I really want to Say: There are 300+ chapter and I don’t think any harm to Xiao Wu which is to come will come that far in future. If any harm is to come, it would come in near future.

      Saying from the experience of reading other Wuxia. Not any by “Tang Say” but others.

      What I could not Say: Hmm! a too normal easy theory/prediction.

In LN, she is a super lovable character but the stupid artist took all of her good personalities away. I couldn’t stand when she forced Tang San to say he loves her during the Valentines in the manhua. Needless to say, i dropped it after that

      • Nope. She’s gonna be back. There’s nothing wrong with having a strong female lead. Your hate for her is highly illogical. I can’t seem to imagine why Xiao Wu would make you hate her so much. Perhaps you’re the same as the person who’s been littering ‘I hate Xiao Wu’ comments around the blog? It’s not very nice.

        • I personally find it annoying that she’s ‘invincible in close combat.’ Throwing people isn’t THAT effective a combat style, but it’s the only way she can hurt them. Now, I know the setting doesn’t have advanced martial arts, but still. Nobody can block her, nobody can stop from being thrown, and they all go right down when thrown.

          Bleh. Just get tired of it and her playfulness and stuff at times. Would like to see her become serious for some reason other then Tang San. Meh. I can deal with it. As you say, her devotion to Tang San makes up for a lot.

          • She is over 100k years old, she can throw 15 yr old kids around if she wants to. And her attitude? She gives no fks, considering how much power a supposed 100k year old spirit beast is supposed to have. You expect a title dulou to care about weak 15 yr olds? I can appreciate her character knowing her background, it would have been crazy if she was mild mannered and nice.

          • You see a bunny being serious possible? Just considering she over thousand years old mean her power should be stronger than tang-san. Why would she use more of her beast power, if people are gonna see she is a beast and try to kill her?

            If i say to you that most magician would lose to her magic because it involve speed/auto-cast and teleportation would you be surprised? Because that’s what happen here. Yes Tang-san is op but Xiao Wu was still able to beat him many time in 1v1. That alone should make u understand Xiao Wu win alot bc she is also strong as hell

          • She uses Jiu Jitsu, like the mma fighters, I consider this a very powerful close combat style. If she can go close to the enemy, she will be really a troublesome, like any Jiu Jitsu fighters.
            The descriptions now are very different from the real Jiu Jitsu, but in the beginning of the novel she used armlocks and twists in legs or necks. So I think that the author imagine her like a Jiu Jitsu or Judo fighter. She used even reduce the force of her strikes, afraid to kill the enemies.

          • Basically my answer is similar to those of Gustavo and imyourfather.

            Firstly, she’s not ‘invincible’ as her throw has been blocked at least once that i can remember before, also throwing people IS THAT effective, especially when you add in the strength of the people involved and her method.
            As for advanced martial arts the author established early in this novel why its so hard to block her as it was a hard task even for tang san when he didn’t use his hidden weapons and like the rest of the team her throw is a spirit ability and even then its one of the more flexible ones because of its physical nature, and the reason why u can’t stop it usually after she gets you is that she uses your own gravity to help with the throw so unless u can defy natural physics on a profound level or your simply WAY stronger than her your screwed, and lets not forget close combat in general has its weaknesses.

            In terms of playfulness its the same for both Ning Rongrong and Fatty, they are all serious when they need to be, she had her serious moments especially when it concerned Title Douluos, the spartan training the shred 7 devils all went through, life and death batles and as you said matters regarding Tang San, they are all alike in this.

          • She can be countered. She uses a lot of throws, which is one of the most dangerous ways to street fight, by the way. Her skills also focus on her lower body, which is already extremely strong naturally (trying to block a well trained kick with your body is just going to end up with you in the hospital for shattered bones). Also throws don’t require you to have that much physical strength – it requires the ability to redistribute your enemy’s balance and power. This is probably what makes Xiao Wu so deadly + her soft bone skill which makes her extremely flexible and hard to catch. Her entire build has been pretty well thought out. Add to that her Paragon Body and teleport skill, she /is/ practically invincible in close combat.

      • It’s only in the manhua that I don’t really like her because the manhua portrays her as a brat. In the novel, I really like her. How her and Tang San are very pure is very respectable. And I agree that everyone has secrets, otherwise, where would we find a good novel to read?

        And true that, don’t forget, Tang San’s entire life revolves around hiding things. Otherwise, how would he be a hidden weapon master???

    • Why? They won fair and square and the spirit hall promised the bones to the victor. Therefore they would lose a lot of face to the spirit community as a whole if they reneged on their promise. Just because Xaio Wu is a spirit beast she wants to capture/kill to feed to her disciples doesn’t mean that the non-spirit beasts don’t get their reward. Besides which, she might also be thinking that she intends to kill them later anyway and will recover the spirit bones then.

  13. I rencetly began to read the manwhua version of Douluo Dalu and they are BIG inconsistency between the two, but they seem to be from the same author, Tang Jia San Shao. Could somebody explain me why they are so big difference between the two. Is it because the other wanted the manwhua to be more easy to uunderstand or is it because he wanted to change the original story because he didn’t like it.

    Like

    • The manwha is based on the story, but like comics and movies tell different stories from the books, the comics are made for a different audience…younger, liking more ‘cute’ things, who would be put off by talk of casually killing things by the teenaged heroes. It’s also a visual medium, so you’re looking at it to enjoy the art as much or more then the story, since it’s visual, it’s also much easier to draw comic booky superhuman stuff, and MUCH harder to convey a tactical, involved battle, where you’d probably have to end up diagramming stuff to accurately convey what a less precise wording allows people to imagine happening.

      So, a great deal of the story simply cannot be conveyed without walls of diagrams and text, so they simply ditch it and go for straight, powerful images that are easier to understand, and more the comic book ‘no killing by heroes’ Saturday morning cartoon line.
      A prime example is the Fight against the elephant school, which relied immensely on involved group tactics and positioning – where exactly who and what were.
      Easier to skip it and go right to ‘combine powers and form Voltron, and beat him anyways’, because everyone understands the trope, and it is MUCH easier to draw. It also very accurately conveyed the tropes that: martial arts allow you to defeat much stronger foes; speed trumps strength; nerve strikes are supremely dangerous; and everything has a weakness, all tropes of historical martial arts enshrined in the culture, and accurately conveyed.

      It’s a different story built along the same ‘character’ lines, but the ‘action’ lines are different because a written story can rely on your imagination to fill in all the holes, where a visual story has to ‘show’ it to you, without all the ‘unspoken’ data that the written word fills in for you.

      You have to appreciate it as a different style of story, for what it is on its own.

I also appreciate that only fourteen issues of that piece of crap was out at the time so I had to switch off to the LN. I couldn’t go back to the manwha after reading the LN. They didn’t just dumb the story down. They lobotomized it.

And well, as Generic said, most likely, he has tyrranical spirit bones on top of it all…. that man is dangerous. Earlier he also said he left to “get back something”…. i wonder what that “something” could be. i presume this also means that either Bibi Dong or Tang Hao may have been the one that killed Xiao Wus mother.

    There is also the fact that if the do attack, hidden weapons would no longer be prohibited…

    On a different note, everyone clearly states that Xiao Wu is a 100,000 spirit beast, if this is the case, why does she still require to cultivate to increase her power?? And does that mean if she’s killed she’d leave a 100,000 year spirit ring?

    “knew the enormity of the gap between them”

    Most people these days assume “enormity” as “big”, but that is wrong. Enormity actually means “big crime” or “notorious”. Basically a big wrongdoing, something along the lines of mass rape and murder, think Nanking, not a measurement. This is one case where adding -ity to something changes the meaning. The actual word to use might be immensity.
