Jealous of her sister's popularity with the human they protect and the love she receives from the king, Mo Yin, the human form of Goddess Tengshe, colluded with the Demon Lord Shi You Ming to kill her sister Xian Yue. The act upset the balance between the God/ Human/ Demon worlds giving demons an upper hand. Xian Yue reincarnated as Ding Yao and returned to restore order. With the help of Wen Tian, a human-dragon hybrid, she set on a mission to re-forge the anti-demon vase using the holy pearls that Goddess Nuwa left behind from creating the human world. The drama is loosely based on Rumiko Takahashi's manga: Inuyasha. - DramaWiki

The drama is loosely based on Rumiko Takahashi's manga, Inuyasha and story-wise it is actually pretty good. This was one of the things that kept me watching it.

Acting/Cast:

The acting, for me, wasn't very good, but some of the other Chinese dramas I have attempted to watch have very similar acting style. So, if you like, and watch a lot of, Chinese/Taiwanese dramas the acting probably won't be a problem.

There were a few interesting characters in the drama. Sometimes, it was amusing to watch the choices they made and the way they handled the consequences of those choices. They also made it easier for me to digest some of my not so favorite characters. I actually liked some of the "bad" guys more than the "good" ones. The reasons why they did some things seemed to logical and very close to reality. I know I would do almost the same things as Hu Ji did if I were in her shoes.

Some of the minor/guest characters were laughable. They looked like they were part of a bad cosplay...play; pink wigs and all.

Music:

I thought the OST was very good. Actually, I loved the OST. I felt it went accordingly to each scene and I still listen to some of the songs.

Re-watch:

The drama is fantasy and I love fantasy based dramas & movies, so it was very appealing for me. And while, I wouldn't re-watch the full drama again, I will definitely go back to my favorite scenes and episodes.

Overall:

There are a few other things I loved about the drama like the fighting/battle scenes, which had a lot of the fantasy element in them and I loved when Yao Yao, or Xian Yue, played the flute. The costumes (especially those of the female characters)were amazing and gorgeous. There were also some parts where breathtaking scenery could be seen.

I really wanted to give this drama an 8. I really did and I actually had scored it that before I made the review, but have now changed it. Why? Well, even though the drama is far from perfect, it does have it own charm and I found it very entertaining, but I just didn't like the ending. The ending ruined the last episode for me, which was otherwise great.

Fun filled fantasy adventure, seriously. I've been missing stuff like this since I began watching Asian dramas.

I loved the characters most in this story where everyone is in love. It was about how they loved and how they acted because of love. Of course there were fancy weapons and magical battles too :D Evan dragons! who doesn't love a good dragon?


And I can't say enough about the costumes. I loved the head pieces. Sure some of the minor characters had bad "cosplay" type attire but lets balance that out with the special effects which were eye catching.

My favorite character was General Wei Liao, he is cute and oh so funny. I would have done exactly what he did if I was him...LOL
