05:59 pm - Romance of the Three Kingdoms, English subbed
When Andrea was here last week, we happened to find a set of English subbed "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" dvds in Chinatown. It was...either 200 or 300 bucks, can't remember. For people not familiar with it, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" is a tv series from mainland China that has 80+ episodes depicting the battles and going-ons of the Three Kingdoms era in China history at the end of the Han Dynasty. It's sort of a slash between documentary and tv series, one of my all-time favourites.

I just watched a few episodes with the English subs even though I can understand about 80% of what's being said anyway and the rest 20% I can haphazard a guess. It actually really helped with the parts i didn't understand when just listening in Chinese, now I get like, 99% instead of 80% =^-^= I think companies should English sub more Chinese tv series, especially the classic ones like the 4 most famous stories in Chinese history: Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dream of the Red Chamber, Journey to the West, and Water Margin. That would be so awesome =*-*=
Current Mood: okayokay

Oh yes I've seen those games, although I've never played them (can't use a playstation or any kind of video game controller to save my life ~_~). Most of them had a chick or two on the front, what's up with that?? Are there actually girls in the game?

Zhou Yu....hmm..he's a general under Sun Quan, but yeah, he's got a reputation for being pretty good looking lol. Can fight, got a fair amount of brains, and looks good too, not bad eh?
