The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation (魔道祖师, Módào Zǔshī; also: Founder of Diabolism) is the animated adaption of the Chinese xianxia novel of the same name. The original story was written by Mòxiāng Tóngxiù (墨香铜臭). The animation aired on QQ from July 9, 2018 - Oct 6, 2018. A second season has been announced for 2019.
The animation has won the Gold Award for "The Best Serial Animation Award" at the 15th China Animation Golden Dragon Awards (第十五届中国动漫金龙奖). It also won "Best New Animation" at Xinguang Award (新光奖); the 7th China Xi'an International Original Animation Competition.
As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei Wuxian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan Wangji, his archenemy. This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei Wuxian slowly realizes that Lan Wangji, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei Wuxian than he is letting on.
