I usually don't write reviews after watching dramas, I just leave a rating and that's it but I couldn't do that for this one. Attack it, Lightning! is an amazing drama. Chinese dramas usually drag out a lot of the story line and it can get kind of tedious watching the usually large amount of episode. This drama however had 31 episodes and I didn't skip a single one! It's on the relatively short side for a Chinese drama but if you are a Kdrama fan like me its longer than usual.

The acting was really great! I had never seen any of these actors before so watching them for the first time was definitely a treat! I fell in love with every single character except one! That is an amazing feet for any drama. The main characters Zifeng, Erhao, Yihong and Wushuang did an amazing of making you fall in love with them despite their flaws. The secondary characters especially the friends/family members only added to the greatness. There is major bromance and good romance without the unnecessary back and forth. Once the characters get together they are pretty solid. The bromance is always the best and this one was no exception! It had me laughing and swooning! The plot is very interesting. The fencing aspect of the drama was a huge factor in my rating because they made it really interesting and easy to understand. Loved the CGI they added for the fencing battles. The plot revolved around fencing and the sport really took center stage alongside the other stories.

I don't usually pay attention to the music unless its distracting or really bad so I can't comment on it other than to say it didn't bother me at all.

Overall I loved every aspect of this drama except for one thing and it's mostly a personal preference of mine so it might not affect you as it did me. I highly recommend this drama even if you don't like sports because the story apart from the fencing is interesting enough!

This review may contain spoilers
2020, I just watched this drama because I'm watching all George's Hu dramas. And, this is really worth it! Seriously, it's a good drama, after finishing you sure will want to be in a fencing team.

The story is simple and really well written, you can't be tired of any episode. The drama is about a group of friends who practice fencing and all the obstacles that they face to chase their dreams. And of course there is love: Zi Feng likes Yi Yi, Yi Yi likes Er Hao, Er Hao likes WuShuang, and she likes Zi Feng.

Points you have to know if you want to watch this:
1- The fencing: even if you don't like sports you're going to love this, all the competition scenes are really cool, and you can understand what is happening.
2-Romance: this is not the principal point of the drama, but, there's a lot of romance and cute scenes. Personally, I love Deng Er Hao and Wu shuang's story more than Yi Yi and Zi Feng's, however the process that the four of them live for ending together is really funny.
3-Characters: every character has their own storyline, and it is not boring, you can feel their pain, happiness, confussion, everything. Plus, the actors are really good.
4-The Ost: frankly I don't pay attention to the music, but this time I really felt touching with the ost of this drama

So..what I don't like:

1-Despite the good plot, sometimes through spisodes you can feel holes, I mean something really important happened from a day to another and you don't understand when it happened.

2-Things happening with lazy explanation, (spoiler alert) ->> Wu Shuang never accepted Er Hao love, because she liked Zi Feng, suddenly she starts to like Er Hao, and that happened from one episode to another in the first 5 minutes, of course she says that she realizes that she felt for Zi Feng admiration and not love, but it's weird. However, their romance story is the best.

I would re-watch this? Absolutely!!
