Tales of Demons and Gods (妖神记 / Yao Shen Ji) Manhua Review

Tales of Demons and Gods (Yao Shen Ji) Manhua Review - Featured Image

A review of Tales of Demons and Gods which is also known as Yao Shen Ji. The manhua is very martial arts orientated and is focused around demons and spirits. It is made by Mad Snail. An overall brilliant read and full of amazing characters.

I particularly love Tales of Demons and Gods and have recommended it to a few of my friends. We often discuss new chapters when they are released and what we think may happen to Nie Li and the gang next.

I’ve included links to both the RAW chapters on AC.QQ and the official translated chapters on Mangatoon. As of writing this post, the RAW chapters are on 540 and the official chapters are on 531.

A Small Synopsis

The story is about a man named Nie Li who dies at a point in time but finds himself back in his city which was once destroyed by demon beasts. It appears he is reincarnated and will soon have to face the demon beats which once took away his home.

What Is Good About Tales of Demons and Gods

There is quite a lot that I really like about this manhua. So let me start off by saying that if you haven’t picked this manhua up or are considering doing it. Do it now!

I really like the unique story about Nie Li and I like the overall vibes it gives off, quite similar to Naruto to be fair. I also like how charismatic he is and how much he cares for his friends and city. The art style is really nice to look at with some awesome colour palettes.

I also like the jokes and witty humour which occurs between all characters, it really makes it enjoyable to read and you can’t help but feel attached to Nie Li.

What Is Bad About Tales of Demons and Gods

There is not much that I can say, aside from the rough loss in translation in the first 80 chapters and possibly some recent ones. But it’s to be expected going from Chinese to English. 

Overall Conclusion

Just like Doupo Cangqiong (Battle Through The Heavens), Tales of Demons and Gods is awesome to follow and if you don’t already, get to it!

It has amazing characters, an amazing storyline and an awesome art style.
