Tales of Demons and Gods MANGA REVIEW
This is a series which I could honestly state got me hooked to it. But, as the narrative progresses, it is only then that we can begin to appreciate the details and unique character personalities of this story.
The story begins with the end of the narrative. Yes, you heard it correctly. This story begins with the typical plot base that is vital for a time travel story.
Now, as I said before, this narrative can look like a cliche, with all the probabilities of a Mary Sue protagonist already in eyesight. A character goes back in time, after confronting a godly last boss, so he could be more godly to completely thrash the no longer godly boss. Yeah, I understand this screams cliche, but I guarantee you this manga is anything but that.
What about Nei Li screams underdog. Be it that his power ( red soul kingdom, which is the smallest possible level for any latent powers), or his demon spirit transformation ( A Panda does not exactly intimidate someone).
However, the constant effort of keeping the protagonist as an underdog, when in reality he is much more skilled is what makes this manga so exceptional. (And frustrating at times)
And unlike most manga in which there’s a repetitive pattern of character organization and plot simulation, which can be dime a dozen in the manga stream, this story has an intriguing transition of scenerios and unique portrayal of personalities for each personality.
The one interesting point to be mentioned about this story is its eerie similarity to Naruto.
When you look closely, you will observe that Nie Li is actually quite identical to Naruto in many ways. From being the underdog of the story to having feelings for a girl who does not give a fuck about him, all the while blowing off a bombshell of a woman who yearns to get his focus (though this equation varies drastically as the story progresses). And, last but not the least, both Naruto and Nei Li are only radically splashed with orange. One with his clothing and another with his orange hair.
Which by the way is absurd. I mean who the hell even has orange hair…( Holy Crap!
Anyways, this story focuses mainly on Nie Li using his knowledge of both the future and wisdom that he obtained in his previous life, which based on this narrative surpasses 200 decades, to change future events from his previous timeline. On a side note, its definitely not creepy a person older than 200 years is chasing a 14 year-old girl.
The main highlight throughout the entire manga is the way Nie Li manipulates the events surrounding himall the while he stays an underdog in the eyes of public. That’s what makes this manga this intriguing read.
Overall, I would offer this manga 8/10 rating. And the only reason it has -2 is because of the primary character skirting close to Mary Sueness, even though the story tries to avoid it.
