A telling of the story of the Three Kingdoms era. The manga was never translated into English, but we're lucky to get the anime nicely subbed, and it's awesome!
Rather than following the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" as most do, this is a fresh story which draws upon the actual historical records of the Three Kingdoms period, shining a whole new light on the main character Sou Sou (who is usually the antagonist in most Japanese works).
Definitely a must watch! The first episode moves along really fast, feeling more like a summary than the start of a series, but it still does it beautifully! I'm really excited to see more of this anime...
The opening and ending themes are great as well. The ending song is an ingenious piece by a band called "Ogre you a$$hole".
