Summary

Xuanzheng (玄正) 20, Gengchen (庚辰) - Debut of the Yiling Patriarch Wei Wuxian in the Sunshot Campaign, end of the Wen clan.

Xuanzheng 25, Yiyou (乙酉) - Death of Wei Wuxian in the first siege of the Burial Mounds.

Xuanzheng 38, Wuxu (戊戌) - Sacrificial ritual of Mo Xuanyu to bring Wei Wuxian back from the dead...

As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei Wuxian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan Wangji, his archenemy. This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei Wuxian slowly realizes that Lan Wangji, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei Wuxian than he is letting on.

Music

Opening

"Zui Meng Qian Chen (醉梦前尘)" by Terry Lin (林志炫)

Lyrics

风雨前尘 傲视苍穹

轻抚陈情亦从容

云深不知处 天子笑坛中

世事无常 独醉梦一场

探正邪两道 观世间喧嚣

孤一身战江湖

亦不曾 将内心辜负

潇洒人间道 善恶都离空

却抹不掉心中伤痕

这一世 浮生若梦

纵然与世无争 道不同义在心中

怎奈侠肝义胆 却成一场空

善恶是非分明 爱恨界限不清

相识就像是一场梦

轮回重生 恩怨迷蒙

似曾相识 露青锋

云景深处 琴瑟伴笛声

世事无常 独醉梦一场

观正邪两道 探世间喧嚣

并肩战江湖

从未曾 将内心辜负

潇洒人间道 善恶都离空

却抹不掉心中伤痕

这一世 与人无争

纵然与世无争 道不同义在心中

怎奈侠肝义胆 却成一场空

善恶是非分明 爱恨界限不清

相知就像是一场梦

纵然与世无争 道不同义在心中

怎奈侠肝义胆 却成一场空

善恶是非分明 爱恨界限不清

相知就像是一场梦

Ending 1

"Wen Qin (问琴)" by Rachel Yin (银临) (eps 1-8, 14-15)

Lyrics

跨千山 踏遍万水

月下 琴瑟凝结成霜

魂歌散 轻风度思量

天子笑 醉一场

花开花谢 落叶满窗

雅正端方 亦沧桑

乱必出 剑起避尘气如霜

曲终人散 意未央

弹指间 倾百花香 玉兔姑苏藏

年华落 是谁人忘却谁心伤

夜未央 冷泉荡漾 心事伴过往

奏一曲 回眸一笑似梦一场

Ending 2

"Bu Xian (不羡)" by S.I.N.G (SING女团) (eps 9-13)

Lyrics:

云梦遥浮世纷怨谁明了

姑苏照涟漪拨乱了心跳

少年玉面清袍风骨桀骜

琴声渺渺笛声寥寥

清河耀今朝花落人寂寥

兰陵傲三尺青锋灼尘嚣

纵使刀光入鞘半生孤傲

绽若云巅风雨飘摇

挥剑断邪妄宵小除奸为济道

抚一曲问灵问天地昭昭

天子笑

一樽美酒今生为你挥毫

前路遥流年不羡那风貌

清河耀今朝花落人寂寥

兰陵傲三尺青锋灼尘嚣

纵使刀光入鞘半生孤傲

绽若云巅风雨飘摇

挥剑断邪妄宵小除奸为济道

抚一曲问灵问天地昭昭

天子笑

一樽美酒今生为你挥毫

前路遥流年不羡那风貌

挥剑断邪妄宵小除奸为济道

抚一曲问灵问天地昭昭

天子笑

一樽美酒今生为你挥毫

前路遥流年不羡那风貌

Trivia

  • The animation plot uses an actual era name Xuanzheng, along with indication of year according to the Chinese sexagenary cycle, to date events in the book.
  • Probably the biggest sponsor for this anime, the Chinese name for Cornetto is 可爱多 (ke ai duo) meaning "A lot cuter" which has kind of become the tagline for this anime.
