Epic Manhua with Beastly Art!

I haven't read much Chinese Manhua in the past, but if they all have such linear story telling coupled with Godly art then i would love to pay from my pocket if they were to be translated

i was blown away by this manga's epicness, it has a mix of every genre you can think of and the execution is Brilliant...the story of Weak-Strong ain't told in the same way like those Shonen Cliche mangas where they are Wimpy and weak but instead we have a strong level-headed guy who keeps upgrading with each passing arc and with meaningful powerups not your WTF how did he get it kinda thing

Overall it has a Great story + Fantastic Pacing + Subtle Romance (No Harem Yay) + Epic fights + Beastly Art + Well-rounded Characters = Feng Shen Ji

Don't miss out on this one folks...

The best manga i have ever read   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This is not a common compliment that i give to manga - which i read quite heck lot of. Feng shen ji (series) is without a doubt the best manga I have ever read, not "one of the best - which would be the manga tier of tower of god, berserk, and such epics. FSJ I would be in my mind among one of the best - it has absolutely stunning plot, characters, and art - but the true emotional resonance, for me, starts near the end of the first part (FSJ I) and really develops in FSJ II when everything comes together and they invade the land of gods. A pity that it is still untranslated for non-chinese readers! It is an absolutely human work of art that would probably stick with me for my life.

To really get into this manhua though, you would have to be pretty familiar (or at least not discouraged) by the way martial arts and internal energy (qi) is portrayed in many martial art epics especially among popular oldies like ones by the author jin yong. The dramatic style of action and "overpoweredness" draws heavy influence from that type of portrayal, except enhanced to a whole other level of glory with the fantastical possibilities that the manhua world can give to a series like this.

I honestly cannot say anything bad about this manhua. It captivated me from the very beginning and has been getting better ever since, if it is even possible.

Besides how believable these characters can be and how heart wrenching their stories are, I would like to note the cruelty of the bad guys in the series. They are not just physically cruel as you see in many series, but psychologically so - yet when you hear of their stories (far from half assed), you can't help but feel bad for them as well. It's really hard to see who you're rooting for and development is far from predictable. The line between good and evil is also very thin in this series - not all humans are good, not all gods are bad - even the ultimate baddie may have had a soft side.

Hmm...
I'm not good with review stuffs, so, please bear with it...^^
[if you got anything negative to say against it, just say it, I'm not that smart, so, I won't mind...^^]

so, It's overall a great Manhwa...
CooL drawing, Funny, Damn Epic, Awesome Protagonist...
nothing more to say, Other's already did some Awesome reviews...

well, what Akiradesu said isn't totally wrong either...
Feng Shen Ji is on my Reading List...
And It's really not “Masterpiece” Compared to some other once there...

but, The Thing is you give it 10 means it's your thing...
you give it 1 it's not your type (of liking)...
everybody has their own different point of view...

So...Emmmmm...
It's 9/10 For Me (by today)... ^_~

Caught up to the latest release within a few days, and I can't hold back the anticipation for the next one.

The artwork and story thus far are both god tier.

Thank you Easy Going Scans for getting the releases out!

@akiradesu
I agree with you. Feng Shen Ji is not a masterpiece.

In my understanding, we only slap the masterpiece title on something that redefine art itself. And Feng Shen Ji does not redefine the art of storytelling.

It actually just a good series. With a good art, decent plot and surprisingly deep character development.

The truth is, there's a lot overrated manga out there. But Feng Shen Ji is not one of them.

Mahalo.

epic

This is so epic, and the fact that it is a manhua is even more surprising. Usually I find manhua works lack the pacing and the emotional depth that certain manga may have, but this is certainly not the case here. Great characters, very interesting story, and epic read overall. The beautiful color art is just an added bonus

The color drawing is very impressive both by the coloring and the scope. I particularly like the full pages of awesome combat scenes. It gives an epic feel that you rarely find in mangas/manhuas. On that aspect I would relate it to a french color comic called «Chroniques de la lune noire», check it out.
On the story side, I'm a sucker for Initiatic journeys and this one is extremely well developped. I would put it on par with a lot of the Epic Fantasy classics. The evolution of the hero's personality is believable and it helps a lot in keeping the reader engaged, especialy as it's linked to his powering up.
Finally, there is something that combines all that and make this manhua remarkable: rythm. By that I mean that there is a good balance between battles, flashbacks, story and character development in a very deep and well developed world. Ican't help but compare it to Tower of God, one of my favorites, with much better artwork.
Well worth the read. Enjoy.

Awesome manga, the only negative is how long the scanlations take to come out. The main character is a very small child with a naive look on the world, but I cant wait to see him grow up physically and mentally, until he becomes even more badass than his father.

I thought that this would be a good pseudo-historical action manhwa, and it's actually a GREAT pseudo-historical action manhwa. I am very impressed. It's in full color, has good art, premise, character development, action, and original feel. I recommend it to anyone. The feel for me is a bit similar to "Shin Angyo Onshi" though the story is more like "Red Erewhon" or "Kurohime" in that it is man-against-god.


==UPDATE==
This series has been getting better and better, and we are still in the begining! This is currently my favorite manhwa, and I say this as a long time Noblesse fan who is still in love with the series and thinks that the recent chapters are some of the best material. I have tended to over-rate series, but knowing what I know now about what really makes a good story, I confidently say that Feng Shen Ji is an artistic masterpiece in every way. I won't say it's perfect, but there are lots of chapters that have yet to be translated that may change that. If this is a genre you enjoy, this may be the best pseudo-historical/action/fantasy currently in existence. I HIGHLY recomend it.
