Douluo Dalu is one of the series in a set of series sharing the same Universe by Tang Jia San Shao (唐家三少). The series bounce around different timelines and stories, but the ones I will be focusing on will be on those related to the Tang Sect. As a large majority of the series follow Tang San’s reincarnation, assent into Godhood, and the adventures of his descendants.
Chinese web novels are similar too Japanese ones. Yet, they are also unique to their own format and feeling. Douluo Dalu is classic web novel in that it follows the path of a martial artist on his journey of cultivation. In order to this, secret techniques must be created, large beasts must be slain, friends and harems must be formed and of course fancy chinese technique names created.
It is my belief that Douluo Dalu is a great example of the Chinese Web novel style and can be entertaining for both new audiences and non native speakers. If you are looking for something that is a change of pace this is the perfect introduction to Chinese Web Novels. As it is well written with an amazing story and great characters. If you have perchance read Chinese Web novels then WHY HAVE YOU NOT READ THIS SERIES YET/ IT’S HUGE!
