I haven't been posting about it because I got sidetracked, but I restarted with the amazing, awesome, etc etc Qin's Moon. It's gorgeous, complicated, with a superbly-rendered world, and characters I adore (well, the main kid I can take or leave but everyone else!)

Also, I have an OTP - Ge Nie/Duanmu Rong! He's Qin's best swordsman, who's turned against his masters and she is a legendary doctor who refuses treatment to only three types of people (1) people from Qin (2) swordsmen (3) people with the surname Ge. Guess who fits all three? Guess who gets treated anyway?







Thank you for feeding the h/c monster, show!

I am madly curious about their backstories - why does she have those conditions and why does she ditch them for him once she sees his sword? And why did he decide to stop being Qin's killing machine even if he will get killed for it?

Also, is it me or is Xiang Yu pretty much N1 obsession of show/movie-makers recently? I mean, there was the White Vengeance movie, and the upcoming one with Daniel Wu, plus the filming Chu-Han Contention series (I can't wait!) and the horrifying upcoming Beauties of the Emperor, plus The Myth and Legends of Chu-Han a few years back. And now here he is in QM as pretty much the coolest adolescent ever:



Liu Bang might have won the empire but he clearly lost the PR war :P (Having read up on the dude, no wonder. Pushing your kids out of your carriage so you can escape faster does not a legendary hero make).

Have a gorgeous and general QM amv. If you recognize the music, it's from Chinese Paladin 3.

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!

A couple of shippy MVs )

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!
