This anime has surprised me on many levels with the reviews it has received after watching it. It DOES not at all live up to those exceptions. I’ve tried again and again to push through the series hoping to be blown away, wanting to stop after episode 2.
Story: Starting off this series, it wasn’t at all bad and it pleased me to see some old Imperial Chinese history in a fictional setting. I was really hopeful, but merely after episode 2 it quickly becomes generic. The story doesn’t provide much detail, depth, or really any interesting development. I’m a big sucker for Romance and comedy, but no real emotion can be felt and most of the “haha” moments fall flat on their face. And the plot holes just tie everything nicely together. (3/10)
Art+Sound: Generic for an anime. Visually bland at some points but nothing too much to complain about. (6/10)
Characters: Uninteresting and generic. Yunxi was pretty cool to watch but really nothing extra ordinary. (5/10)
Enjoyment: Outside of episodes 1 & 2, didn’t really enjoy this series. Had high hopes but it just didn’t have a good story nor delivered any interesting romance or funny comedy. Of course starting off it was a bit off putting hearing Chinese dub after watching hours and hours of Japanese dubbed anime, but I came to enjoy it. (2/10)
Overall: Not an anime I recommend you watching if you’re someone looking for an anime you’ll remember and truly cherish or with a depthful storyline and characters. This doesn’t mean at all that objectively this anime is bad, some people might like it, but don’t go in with high hopes.
