Devour Heaven and Earth2 also sounds pretty wicked!

@ljwrites
it's like the inverse of those Chinese to English book titles

@FiXato The weird names are partially that, and partially China being mad about localising their media titles (which is a cultural thing), so when those are translated back to English, you can stumble upon the weirdest shit.
