Note: This is part of my growing number of posts of works and adaptations of works by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu. Because of the release of the novels Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation and Heaven Official’s Blessing, all reviews related to Mo Xiang Tong Xiu can be found under the author’s tag. Madou Soshi is the Japanese title, and this is about the Japanese audio drama with Japanese names.
SPOILER WARNING! If you have yet to read Mo Dao Zu Shi (novel or manhua), watch the animated adaptation or read my previous posts, this post may contain spoilers of past episodes. I suggest checking out the Madou Soshi tag for summaries of past episodes.
To think you wouldn’t tell me about such a good place to heal the wounds. Geez! AH! So cold!
I came here to cultivate, not to heal my—. Don’t play in the water!
But it’s cold! Brrrr! Way too cold!
I just want to get to where you are; it seems warmer over there.
Ran Gishin (CV: Toshiyuki Morikawa) brought Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) and Kou Chou (CV: Hikaru Midorikawa) with them to exterminate water ghouls, though Ran Bouki (CV: Satoshi Hino) questions it. Are these people really capable of handling such a dangerous task?

SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t listened to episodes 1-4, this review may spoil things for you, even in the thought section where I try to avoid spoilers. I suggest reading the reviews of Madou Soshi episodes 1-3 and Madou Soshi episode 4 before this one.
“If drinking within Cloud Recesses is forbidden, I can drink on top of the wall. That way I won’t break the rules, right?”
“Like I’d let you!”
“Hey! Are you looking for a fight!?”
Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) wonders what on earth could have happened during all these years for Ran Bouki (CV: Satoshi Hino) to be so different; he’s fine if Musen touches him, he hides alcohol in his room… Thinking about these oddities, he remembers their first encounter that eventually would lead them to this day when Bouki just won’t let him go.

Important note! All names, including the title, are in Japanese! For those who have read the novel or comic, or watched the animated or live action series, I’ve put a list of names after the summaries to minimise confusion. Madou Soshi is the Japanese reading title of Mo Dao Zu Shi, and not me bullshitting some random title because I can’t read Chinese much anymore.
Also! Usually I write Given name Family name on characters. This is reversed this time because it just sound better. I drop family names unless I need to use them after writing it once though.
As of 25/4 2022, I have a page with all the names and other terminology that can be useful to know listed here, and no longer in the post.
During the first year, peace remained…
During the second year as well, peace remained…
And during the thirteenth year as well, peace still remained…

However she is the only girl at the school. At the end of the school year, in March, there is a transfer student, Yoh Tomoe (CV: Hikaru Midorikawa).

So, I made an early impression-post on Disgusting WIfebeaters back when blog was hosted on my domain. Let’s just say that I will most likely repeat the same thing.
What the hell’s wrong with this shit? And who thought of the terrible idea to even make that crap into an anime? Just watching it made me want to throw up, and I’m plenty sure that wasn’t as bad as in the game, WHICH I’LL NEVER TOUCH.
So why was it so bad? Continue reading “Diabolik Lovers”
