The art is gorgeous, and the action riveting. The plot is way beyond mere revenge; the series takes you deeper into the martial arts world than any other. Read this series if you want to have a good time.

Well, my advice to you guys who said that this Manhwa is "average", please read again until the last chapter I would say. And if somehow you still call this "average", please enlighten me what kind of manhwa/manga that was "above average"...
Still, I appreciate any kind of opinion regarding this manga, and hoping that the manga discussion become more educating and enlighting. Have a nice read!

Not as bad as the reviews say

Many reviews here seem to indicate the story is quite average, and I agree at least for the first few volumes. As of volume 9 I can honestly say that I am quite looking forward to the next chapters.

As for the action, I think the quality and execution is concise and well done. My only complaint with the action scenes would have to be the large amount of naration explaining each movement.

If you enjoy martial arts manga/manhua than I definately recommend giving this one a read.

It is obvious that the art is top notch but the story is definitely not "average." I understand why some of the users would think so.

I've watched and read chinese wuxia dramas/novels way before I read my first manga and I think the readers who are not familiar with the Jianghu world will mostly think the story is average. Like when I first read a samurai manga (Vagabond) and thought the story was average (ridiculous, I know). Blood and Steel has a very unique story in a well-established Jianghu world and has potential to be something great. A good example is the author's decision to use Wudang as the antagonist group. Never in any wuxia story has the Wudang sect considered to be evil/violent/power hungry.

I will be writing a review/backstory for Blood and Steel soon and hopefully it will shed some light on why the story is above average. I have been waiting for a great wuxia manhua for a long time and I wouldn't be surprised if this gets adapted into a drama.

My favorite!

This one is my favorite manhua! It's a real pleasure to read. The character development is growing steady and strong. The story is at a normal pace not too fast not too slow and with a rare fight description you dont see often!. The author actually describes each fight and you dont only see Ugh!, Ahh! etc.We get to see detailed fight descriptions such as what's the name for each move they make, and the reason behind using every move. Last but not least THE ART IS DIVINE!!!!!!!!!!! A very detailed art allows you to take a peek into China's beautiful building and streets architecture!

This is a must read!

A really good martial arts manga so far. I dont see why someone would rate this under 6 to be honest.
In my book its a solid 8 at least! if not for anything else just for the awesomeness of chapter 6

Art fits the story and leaves a dark, old impression. The story so far is ... well there isn't much since its the first few chapters but the author is building it up slowly and you get the feeling that it will be a good one.

As the guy below posted, It's honestly breathtaking and I've yet to see a manhua, which has hooked me this much due to the plot (Ofc it's only begun). I'd even say it might become better than Berserk or Ares plotwise.

I can't await the next releases and I'm looking forward that they'll come fast!!

especially when you take into consideration that this is the first manhua of the comic's artists.
Hopefully it won't end up being rushed, because the story, up until now, has been given great care.

The character designs are very detailed,after some of the chapters there are descriptions of the weapons that the characters use and during the battles the descriptions also help the reader to better understand the fights..

Personally I think that this manhua is better than most manwha, manga and manhua out there..
for people who like adventure comics and a seemingly steadily growing story, this is a great read

Great storytelling + great art + great character development, what is not to love? Only shallow people who don't have patience and the intelligence to assimilate such a good material would rate this low.
