A finale of Thunderbolt Fantasy Season 2 gave us chills.

Talking about the Plot, it’s quite interesting and features a straight and simple narrative. Humans fought a terrible war against the Demon Realm’s inhabitants several years ago. To combat the powers of the nether-realms, a set of unique Shén Huì Mó Xiè (“Heavenly Instructor Magic Implements”) weapons were forged. 

These sacred arms were entrusted to the care of special guardians after the war.

The Tin Xíng Jiàn (“Sword of Divine Retribution”), the most powerful of these weapons, was entrusted to the family of siblings Dān Héng and Dān Fi. Miè Tiān Hái (the chief of a rival clan) is now willing to go to any length to obtain this weapon. Dān Héng and Dān Fi are on the run from Miè Tiān Hái.

 The brother is defeated as a result of Hai’s appearance, but his sister, Dan Fei, is temporarily saved by jumping off a cliff. Later, a traveling swordsman arrives over a ruined temple with a Buddha statue sheltered from the rain by an umbrella. 

When he takes the umbrella for himself, a man resting under a nearby tree tells him that as a trade-off for taking the umbrella, he must be generous to the next traveler he encounters. Dan Fei is the next traveler who is still being hunted by Xuan Gui Zong’s minions. 

The wanderer is unable to escape being involved both due to his vow and the enemy’s enchantment. That is when she meets the enigmatic stranger Lǐn Xuě Yā, who helps them in their search.

The story progresses throughout the seasons, presenting different challenges and twists that make it a worthy watch. For this season, it is being predicted that the Monk may still be alive and well, while the demon lady from season 1 is back in action.
