Anime “Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”: which characters in the title role?
- The founder of Demonic Path is Wei Wuxian, who was killed in a conspiracy of several clans. He was reborn in the body of the guy Mo Xuanyu, who sacrificed his life for revenge. In battle, he uses strong magical artifacts: a compass of evil, a flag that lures monsters, as well as a tiger seal.
- Lan Wangji is not only an enemy in the past, but also a friend of Wuxian. He once tried to stop him from becoming the founder of the Demonic Path, realizing how much trouble and grief this could bring to Wei Wuxian. However, he failed to do this and save him. Lan was in love with Wuxian, so after rebirth, he recognizes him in the body of another person.
The plot of the anime “Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”: what was and what will be?
The anime takes place in a fantasy world where magic reigns supreme. Wei Wuxian, the founder of one Demonic Path, chooses the path of chaos and fear. He wanders the world, inspiring terror in the hearts of people. It is not surprising that in this situation they are afraid and hate him at the same time.
Some of the most powerful and most ferocious clans ultimately come together to put an end to the atrocities of Wei Wuxian, striving for immortality. He is betrayed by his own henchman, and it would seem that after the reprisal against the cultist, life should return to the peaceful course, but… A few decades after the death of the grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, the young man calls him from the world of the dead, dreaming of retaliation.
Wei Wuxian incarnates in his body, but, unfortunately, everything starts to go wrong. Suddenly, Lan Wangji, the once sworn enemy of Wuxian, appears and takes him with him. In the course of history, two enemies (however, in fact, it turns out that their feelings are much deeper, closer and stronger) have to get out of various troubles, fight off monsters and find compromises.
