Having problems with his meridians and thus rendered incapable of practicing the internal arts, Qin Yu lives in seclusion with Grandfather Lian. To cheer up a depressed Qin Yu, Lian gifts him a peculiar bird, which the former names Xiao Hei.

Wanting to be recognized by his father, Qin Yu embarks on the path of cultivation. With Zhao Yunxing's rigorous training method, he strives to overcome his physiological hindrance and become an expert in the external arts. While resting from one such training session, Qin Yu discovers a red crystal that, to his surprise, fuses with his body. Unbeknownst to him, this subtle transformation gives Qin Yu astounding abilities that will aid him as he sets out, with Xiao Hei in tow, to prove that he is worthy of his father's acknowledgement.

This is a really good anime with its backstory stemming from the Qin dynasty which was China's first dynasty. This is a story that follows both fiction and non-fiction. Most of what was in the first season are historical events. However, there are some changes to fit the story of a mythic legend named Yu Qin. As the story progresses, Yu Qin becomes stronger and in season 2 meets a well-known Chinese legend, Sun Wu Kong. Well in the anime he wasn't named that but his weapon and looks are inspired by Sun Wu Kong. This has roots in Chinese epics such as Xi You ...

I was planning to write a review on this anime anyways, but after reading the only other review, I now have to write one.... (the other review was really bad... if you couldn't tell already)
