not bad

The art is amazing, the story has a lot of potential and is well-thought. The problem with all manhua is that there are extremely long, narrative texts in every page and there are hardly any dialogs. It's very tiring to read all this in order to get why this move or that move is so sharp and powerful and so on.

Average and a Disappointment   
Rating: N/A

Average, and I have read all the chapters in hopes of it getting better. But it didn't the problem with it . It is going too slow, too many conflicts going on at the same time with too many characters and not enough development. In the beginning it was okay because there is a clear character and conflict but a couple of chapters later, dozens of characters were added in. It's a big mess and I'll take that challenge: I think what's above average would be stuff like Twelve Nights and Choukakou. Revenge with a few main characters that all have motivations from all sides of the story.

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.

Disappointing   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Overall, I'm disappointed by this. The cover art is always nice but like somebody else said, the artist(s) doesn't really know how to convey the action well--that's a huge minus, as fight scenes are integral to a wuxia manga. The story, or perhaps the way that it's told, did not manage to sustain my interest within the first few issues, so I decided not to invest in this series any more.

Finally, an amazing Wuxia Manhua!

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.

Epic

well this one have amazing artwork like some other Manhua titles
great storyline although its not focused on some main cast
the only negative is the naration thought not as bad as some other Manhua titles
after reading till ch46
I can say that this became my favorite historical/fighting title
after the end of Blade of the immortal and dropping/hiatus Vagabond
this title can be compared to these and thats something a few titles can do

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.

Godlike Art, Average Story   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
by Samken
May 4th, 2012, 3:58am
Blood and Steel plot is the average revange story, someone is killed (In this case, the clan of the protagonist) and he goes on a journey to avenge them. The story is average at best, but the artwork of this Manhua is godlike. It's so beautiful, so detailed, major props for the artist. I would give a 10 just for the artwork alone, but the story holds the score to a 7.
