The Three Kingdoms Period (220-280) refers to the time at the end of the Han Dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE) when much of China was torn between warlords attempting either to replace or restore the authority and hegemony of the declining Han Dynasty. Now obviously the whole show was fraught with all kinds of political machinations and military maneuverings, so to try and give a proper account of it in one go would be a little ambitious–Luo Guanzhong (罗贯中) of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) gave it a shot and ended up with a real breeze-block of a tome. He did pretty well though–his Romance of the Three Kingdoms is one of the four great classics of Chinese literature, along with Journey to the West, Dream of the Red Chamber and Outlaws of the Marsh.

As masters of demons and the undead, Demon Hunters are certainly forces to be reckoned with. These skilled martial artists silently wander the earth vanquishing any foe that stands in their path. By collecting and trapping the souls of their demon prey in the crystal staff they carry, Demon Hunters can summon demons for later use in battle. Using their powerful moon magic, these warriors can even transform parts of their bodies into those of the demons they’ve captured. Oftentimes, these warriors carry incredibly powerful magical armor and weapons that render them impervious to any demonic attacks. Although they are skilled with their weapons like thier magic staff, they often prefer hand-to-hand combat. In fact, Demon Hunters are skilled in many forms of martial arts, and the strongest ones can take down legendary demons with their bare hands. By launching blasts of powerful dark energy from their fists, no enemy can possibly stand in their path. Oftentimes, Demon Hunters have a strong killer instinct and will use their powers to completely obliterate anyone who opposes them; however, many Demon Hunters are able to supress and control this killer instinct allowing them to use it for the side of good rather than evil.
Congratulations on reaching this high class!

Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT…
I wonder if it means ALL the episodes of the new season of Korra will be online on August 1st?
No. Episodes 1-5 are online now. I think they’ll upload episodes 6-8 by August 1st. Then, each week after that, one new ep will be posted on the website (not on the TV network).
People on why the English dubs suck and Japanese original voice actors are better:
I can’t even go on. I’m sick of this language superiority shit. Let’s get this right, PEOPLE.
Intensity and emotion are not language traits. I can’t even. Why would you ever even THINK of saying that?
The English dubs suck bc they hire crappy voice actors. English dubs can be done right, but in my experience, this is less often the case.
I, for one, prefer to read subs than suffer through sub-par dubs. Most of the world reads subs even when the broadcast is in their own language. I just don’t get English speakers’ aversion to subs.
But that doesn’t mean I won’t defend English’s integrity as a language.
Remind wedding for Mr. Herve Bouvier, president of premier cosmetic brand Estee Lauder Korea. Setting a gorgeous view of Seoul city as a background, this remind wedding was celebrated with Korean traditional hanbok at 63 building. It’s speechless!
Hanbok is a Korean traditional custom that people still wear nowadays for special event. HanbokLynn, a Korean fashion design company, mixes modern and the past in a very smart way so that people would still love to wear hanbok. More photos are available at http://www.facebook.com/hanboklynn
Nonon (small, sarcastic, adorable AND band conductor/drum major) = me
Houka (skinny, sarcastic, cool AND hacker/genius) = Bin
I actually DON’T ship these two (I ship Nonon with Uzu or better yet Satsuki,
and Hoka with no one bc he’s too creepy)
… but I ship them in real life~~
bc the whole time I’m going, “That’s me! That’s Bin! AHHHHH Look at meeeeeee!!!! LOOK AT BIN!!”
Totally worth it.
I’ve honestly never seen a more perfect anime.
dark and hilarious, with a whole lot of “nudity”
I mean, Nudist Beach.
Are you a nude Nudist?
In all seriousness, I couldn’t stop watching. Not a single episode was a waste of time or plot, and it was all excellently planned and executed.
The only problem was that I wanted more when it was all said and done. Good thing they’re releasing an OVA in September!
