For those that I talked into watching Three Kingdoms, I’m sorry that your favorite character is probably dead by now.

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, the epic 2010 TV drama Three Kingdoms is the (mostly) true story of an heroic era in Ancient Chinese history. When the imperial throne lost its power and the Han Dynasty fell, all of China was suddenly up for grabs. The series picks up as various factions and royal houses must connive and battle amongst themselves to unite the empire under a single banner. Alliances are forged and crushed, backs are stabbed, and power is won only with cunning and iron. There are heroes and villains on every side, anyone can die, and no one can be trusted.

All 95 (8-9 seasons’ worth) 45 minute episodes are available on various video and file-sharing sites. It’s basically Chinese Game of Thrones.

Below the jump, there’s a rundown on who to root for. Pick a side, everyone.

My sister and I started watching this because we wanted to know more about the Dynasty Warriors characters in Orochi (without actually playing DW because for some reason 2P mode sucks in those games??) and I’m so hooked.  Only on ep 12, and I think I’m in love with most of them.  Mostly Lu Bu and Cao Cao, but I smile every time Cao Ren or Li Ru show up.

And poor Liu Bei, he kind of looks like he’s going to throw up whenever he’s on screen, I just want to squish him!

Anxiously awaiting Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi Epic Brodown…

I got into researching Chinese history and Romance of the Three Kingdoms because of the Dynasty Warriors Games. I need to watch this show.

You should!  It’s really fun and well done, even if the battle scenes are a little…frantic?  I’m pretty sure Guan Yu picked Zhang Fei’s horse up by its tail and one point and swung it around.  And then there’s SPEARS SPEARS SPEARS FLYING KICKING AND MORE SPEARS EVERYWHERE STABBING.

And Lu Bu is such a shock after Dynasty Warriors.  He’s this big adorable teary-eyed male model, It’s like, “oh, honey,” every five minutes with this poor drunken puppy.  I love it.

(Well, I’ll love it for the next… 7 episodes, I guess, given the title of ep 18, fuuuuuuuuck, not like I don’t know how all these stories end, but fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck).
