Yeah, Xiang Yu is… bad. He’s a bland stereotypical manly tragic hero with more chemistry with his horse than his love interest. Tbh, he’s one of the few historical figures I legit Am Not Cool With, but still, the show could have done really interesting things subverting romantic tradition by examining his hypocrisy and flaws and made him a worthy foil for Liu Bang. But it doesn’t. His faction just gets handled progressively worse and worse by the show.
But yess, the Three Heroes here are all awesome, likeable characters. My favorite is Han Xin
and I translated an entire novel where he fights an ancient evil conspiracy with magitech missiles after this show turned me into a fan of his, but I like all of them, even if the other two helped contribute to Han Xin’s death, ahaha.
aw yes i know there are like at least two main camps of Opinions on Han Xin i think this show is going to be on my camp then i can breathe a little easier???? ahhhhhhh
whispers that sounds like an amazing novel
BUT XIANG YU IS SO NOBLE AND MANRY. (he gets even worse)
Also of the three of us that watched this show when it came out, one fangirled Han Xin, one liked Xiao He, and one started crushing on Zhang Liang. Now it’s up to you to tip the balance of power. :<
