The Final Immortal: Was this price watching?4 min read

I simply completed The Final Immortal and I’ve a ton of ideas. I’m going to try to share these with out sharing an excessive amount of of the particular plot, as a result of, regardless of a number of flaws, this drama is price watching. So come be part of me as I clarify what I loved and what I want may have been completely different.

Not Reinventing the Wheel

This drama is much like many different Chinese language fantasy dramas the place we’ve got gods and decrease gods all going by way of tribulations and upgrades. And, in fact, our leads should not exempt from these tribulations. Like most dramas of this style, certainly one of them is the foretold “calamity occasion” of the opposite. To be trustworthy, I want we used the calamity trope rather less liberally in Chinese language dramas. There are solely so many occasions you watch the supporters of the upper elevated character be jerks to the poor entity that finally ends up inflicting a calamity occasion. Is it the love curiosity’s fault that she (it’s nearly at all times a she) exists and the fates are screwing her over? To not point out, aren’t calamity occasions supposed to assist elevate cultivation so the individual at all times turns into stronger in the long term? I’m simply over it.

Character Development x2

I appreciated that we acquired to see each of our characters develop on this drama. They meet when each are younger, have fast tempers, and run on their impulses. It was good to look at them shift from frenemy to compatriots, and ultimately to lovers/rulers of the three realms. We don’t at all times get that in-depth character development and it was appreciated. That stated, you’ll have to get by way of some silliness within the first few episodes. It may be a bit off-putting, however I assure the hassle is well worth the reward afterward.

Some Nice Redemption Arcs

A number of characters are simply horrible (one specifically) and also you simply need them to get their comeuppance. Nevertheless, there have been a number of plot arcs the place redemption occurred. Whereas I wish to see a few of them boiled in oil for 1000 years, their redemption moments have been highly effective and helped create some surprises on this conventional story. So yay for being shocked and for a narrative’s unhealthy guys having layers.

Is This Value Watching?

I must say that this drama is price watching. Regardless of there not being any new plot twist that may have you ever hooked, this present stays regular from begin to finish. It’s particularly price awaiting Zhao Lusi and Wang Anyu’s performances. Their up-and-down relationship has a way of gravitas due to their robust portrayal of those characters and their eventual epic romance. It truly is price going by way of all the normal drama motions for that payoff.

If you happen to exit and binge this drama (or have already watched it and simply popping in) make sure to come again and inform me what you thought. Additionally, make sure to cease again in and take a look at all our previous and future drama evaluations.

Til the subsequent dramatic second,
