As a manga based on the Three-Kingdoms era, I thought this was another one of those unoriginal Chinese attempts on making money off the hugely popular historical epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms...

Boy was I ever more wrong... because not only are the details of this manga original, it is an absolute masterpiece. For once I have to bow down to the author and declare that I'm not even worthy of being a critic of his work.

Basically, we're talking about a manga that perfectly combines the genres of martial action, epic battlefield combat, political/factional scheming, military strategy, detailed character development, and a very complex but read more

TL;DR version - This is a very well-rounded story, exploring the themes of pretense (with both lying to others and lying to oneself), politics (through deception and schemes), war (through nihilism and manipulation), literature (through the importance of sharing and the fabrication of history) and so on. Story does not center around anyone, instead it is fleshing out every side, who represent different types of opposing ideologies. Characters are exploding with charisma, by showing off their immense strength and knowledge of Art of War (thus being the most complex work in fiction at scheming). It is both very tragic and poetic, with various obscure references read more

As a Romance of the three kingdoms fanatic, I was at first reluctant to read something so different and novel.
At first it seemed a little too un-historical and bizzare, judging from the multiple fictional characters and all, but when it picks up its pace, it turns out to be a true masterpiece.

The purpose of this manhua is to go against the stereotypes of character personalities and codes of honour, and observe everything from a different perspective, which makes things actually look much more realistic than in the old novel.There are no good and evil characters, no -good- loyalists and -bad- traitors, no heroes and tyrants.Every read more

I tend to enjoy heavily historical anime and manga, despite often having no prior knowledge in that area. This manga thrusts one in media res into the conflicts of a period of Chinese War.

The story arches over several different campaigns of war. If you tend to like something like Hikaru no Go or Death Note (at least before it got ridiculous around seven volumes along) wherein strategy is extensively expounded, then you will probably like this because in each of them explanations of strategy reign supreme. At the same time, however, it has quite a bit more action than typical since it is rooted continually read more
