Blame [livejournal.com profile] hamster428. Her post on Qin's Moon, a Chinese wuxia 3-D animation set during the Qin Dynasty, led me to seek it out and now I am OBSESSED!



It's basically everything I love in a period/fantasy/wuxia cdrama only even prettier! There are supposed to be seven seasons - three are out with subs, fourth is currently airing. Epic battles, tangled loyalties, OTPs that wield swords!

I will eat...something, if this MV doesn't sell you on this:




Actually, I am pre-obsessed with one particular couple:



I mean, they kill things together and make music together! You know it's soulmate territory!









OK, say you. You might be interested but what on earth is this animation about? Glad you asked. Plot synopsis from ancientchinese.net: Qin's Moon tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dnasty, the first Dynasty of China. During this time, six kingdoms were conquered by Qin in a ruthless takeover, with the new emperor forcing his subjects to follow his will and laws. The story follows a young boy, Tianming, who is hunted down by the Qin empire for reasons beyond his knowledge; and together with his friends, allies and teachers, will change the course of history.

As the story progresses fantasy, steampunk and history intertwine to tell this truly unique tale of courage during uncertain times. Tianming faces treacherous enemies, hope and loss, difficult relationships with both family and friends, and the challenges of deailing with a changing world. Eventually, a new era will be created out of their struggles for a better world.


(You can find torrents for the subbed first three seasons on ancientchinese.net or watch subbed eps here). There is also this great QM website and a QM tumblr.

Join me in my madness!
