I just completed the DVDs of this series. The character development is VERY good. This series is based off the Chinese novel "Seven Swordsmen of Mt. Tian", and it will show you the COMPLETE story through 39 episodes, 40minutes each.
I would give this a 10, but the English subtitles on the DVD are HORRIBLE. If you don't understand Chinese, then it's best to not buy this, since the subtitles will definitely annoy you.
The graphics are alright, nothing special. You won't see anything flashy like in Shaolin Soccer, Kungfu Hustle or Demi-Gods/Semi-Devils (2003).
However, you WILL see a great unique drama and character development. It's not the best Wuxia series, but it's still memorable. I definitely recommend this to any fans of Chinese Wuxia genre.
