The premise of “The Deathless” is quite unique and interesting.
Our protagonist, Lian Mian, can see the death rates of humans and increase it, too. This means touching her is basically a death sentence and may explain why her parents are nowhere in the story.
After failing to kill herself, our female lead meets Death. He tries to kill her with his sword but things go awry. This basically means they’re now bound to each other.
Needless to say, they’ll start to have feelings for each other and eventually fall in love. You know, the typical romance stuff we can expect from romance stories.
Despite my recommendation of this story, I do have some issues with it. There’s some major clichés and tropes in the story which aren’t needed.
The whole aspect of Death and someone who is unable to die is interesting enough. We don’t need high school drama, despite it existing in the story.
Death also becomes a transfer student in the same school as our female lead.
I assume it is to keep an eye on her, and possibly kill her if the opportunity arises. I reckon he becomes interested in her since she’s not scared of death like other humans, which peaks his interest.
Neither do we need a love sick rival who is out to get Lian Mian. We don’t need to see this annoying character tape a kitten’s mouth and nose. The sole purpose is to mess with her.
Likewise, we don’t need this school girl hiring thugs to beat up our female lead. We just don’t need this in the story and it’s quite annoying having to read.
This is the type of drama we see in so many other series and this comic is better than that. Even if we need the conflict, it could easily be done in a different way.
Like Lian Mian may want to avoid a couple of guys, because she worries she’ll end up causing their death. They get aggressive and she’s saved by Death. That would be more in line with the plot and characters, than just a random school girl making thugs go after her.
Recommendation: Despite some tropes, do give this a go. It’s a really interesting story and I really like it myself!
