Good sides:
First this was my very first Chinese anime which I have watched sub by MizureX33 and I have found it weird but refreshing.
It is quite similar with a Isekai anime except it is not fantasy based. Story revolved around the daily struggle after waking up in medieval China.
Story had it's plot twist
Romance element had it quite touchy.

In other word this anime is quite a time kill

Negative side:|
story writing could be a little bit strong
And to be honest just by wearing male read more

Art & Sound 8/10

Writing 2/10
Really just nothing much in the writing at all. The first arc is read more

oh dear god. the Art: beautiful / Sound: pretty good...but it's all blown away and made irrelevant by how annoying the MC is. not only is her character whiny and unintelligent - her voice matches. I had to drop this halfway through the episode bc her voice is so whiny and she always seems to play up being a brainless damsel in distress all the time. I've dropped a chinese drama for the same reason. when my friends speak in mandarin they don't sound whiny as hell (it sounds nice!) but for some reason in chinese shows they seem to think it's cute to sound read more
