This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’m covering the sixth entry in one of my favorite epic Xianxia series. It’s Coiling Dragon Volume 06 by I Eat Tomatos!

Plot Synopsis: Linley Baruch, scion of the once world famous clan of supreme warriors known as Dragonblood Warriors, has successfully quickened his blood and gained a mutated Dragon form and acquired a sword of mysterious origins that is impervious to everything. Coming back from his adventures on the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts he decides to sell his masterpiece “Awakening from the Dream” that he made during his depression after breaking up with Alice. He does so in order to buy back his families precious heirloom sword “Slaughterer” once used by the first Dragonblood Warrior, Baruch. He succeeds and creates so much commotion that he becomes a noble in the kingdom due to his fame, martial, and magical prowess. After buying back “Slaughterer” he heads home, only to find out that his father has died, before seeing his son’s rise to fame and glory.

Plot: This entire novel is the fallout of that single few sentences uttered by Hillman at the end of Volume 05, and it shows us a new side of Linley that we had never seen before. I won’t say I don’t understand, I’d do the same thing in his place, but I didn’t enjoy this side of him.  I’ll just say that this volume up the action and stakes to hither to unseen levels in the series, which is impressive in it’s own right. That’s all I’ll say about this volume’s plot.

Characters: We don’t really get to meet any new people, except a few whom I’ll leave unnamed, but there is one particular person that pops up towards the end that I enjoy. He kicks much ass, and is probably one of my more favorite characters of the entire series. However Bebe is still my favorite, although we do get to see some more of Grandpa Doehring.

Overall: If you weren’t already loving this series, this one volume should make it a must read series for you. Absolutely excellent.

  1. Rather than reading the comic, read the web novel on wuxiaworld. It is more detailed and more fun to read. Ive been hooked by coiling dragon and when i finished it, i went on to read more xianxia like stellar transformation and now currently desolate era by the same author, i eat tomatos.
