In his battle with the Nascent Soul Cultivator, Teng Hua Yuan, Wang Lin's body was destroyed. He managed to survive by escaping into the Foreign Battlegrounds dimension. While his body was destroyed, his Consciousness survived. His Consciousness began to devour the other spiritual beings within the Foreign Battlegrounds and over the course of 700 years, his Consciousness grew to the power of a Devouring Soul. As a Devouring Soul, Wang Lin's Consciousness was charged with consuming the Space of the Foreign Battlegrounds:
Not satisifed with staying a Devouring Soul, Wang Lin's consciousness possesses the body of the deceased Ma Liang to regain a physical form. Dimensional Law prevents Devouring Souls from leaving the Foreign Battlegrounds. A Black Line of destruction annihilates souls the moment they attempt to leave the Foreign Battlegrounds but Wang Lin's Consciousness was so powerful that he broke through the Dimensional Law:
When his physical body was destroyed by Teng Hua Yuan, the Heaven Defying Bead merged with Wang Lin's Consciousness. This allows him to instantly teleport himself into the Heaven Defying Beads Dream Space, a separate dimension that cannot be detected from the outside world.
Wang Lin's consciousness has become so powerful that it can shield him from mental attacks as well. An attack that would normally mind wreck an individual, causing them to lose all their knowledge and feelings can be blocked with just his consciousness:
Spiritual Threads - Wang Lin creates numerous threads of spiritual energy which are coated with the Underworld Flame. Anything lacking a particular type of spiritual energy touched by these threads is immediately reduced to ashes:
Death Spell - By Cultivating his Extreme Consciousness during his Core Formation transformation, Wang Lin created the Death Spell. Anything struck by the red light of the Death Spell is instantly killed, be it a physical being or a soul:
Devil Boss - a devouring soul created by Wang Lin when he captured a helpless Nascent Soul. It obeys Wang Lin's every command. Anything touched by the Devil Boss will have its soul consumed and body drained of all its life force:
Items: Dragonskin Armor - made from the skin of a dragon, this armor greatly boosts Wang Lin's defense. When he was still at the peak of Foundation Stage, the Dragonskin Armor allowed him to take hits from Core Formation Cultivators and survive. The armor also prevents internal injuries, such as attacks that would normally cause all the veins in one's body to rupture:
Underworld Flame - a flame that releases coldness which can even melt the Extreme Yin Ice (Wang Lin's old ice ability). Before he became a Core Formation Cultivator, the Underworld Flame was a depletable item but now that he has become a Core Formation Cultivator, he can use the Underworld Flame as much as he wants:
Crystal Flying Sword - an upgraded version of his original Flying Sword, this new Crystal Flying Sword is strong enough to one shot a Core Formation Cultivator and can even destroy spiritual beings. The Crystal Flying Sword can still teleport and can now channel The Underworld Flame.
Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.

Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.
Feb 6, 2020 22:42:02 GMT
Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.
Feb 7, 2020 3:17:29 GMT
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
