SakiVI: Two people seem on the verge of madness in this episode: Professor Chen and Fatty. Read on. kakashi: All things considered, mad Professor Chen is probably my favorite part about this show. But I do not want to anticipate too much. JoAnne: Oooh, maybe CHEN is the hidden monster. I would love that. There has to be a hidden monster, since there haven't been any out-in-plain-sight monsters. I wonder if Chinese horror movies are like this? ...are there Chinese horror movies? Trotwood: Clearly, it's been to long since someone has died.
kakashi: The Nine Heavens may look like paradise, but in fact, they're like hell. We learn how horrible the Heavenly Lord really is and why the Crown Prince seems like a miserable black block of ice. Luckily, we also meet a new ship. JoAnne: Do we ever!
kakashi: Kasuo tried, but it's one massive fuck-up. I would be sorry for him if I could stop laughing. He is such a failure. JoAnne: I'm not so sure he failed, exactly. No one bothered to ask about the details. In Western horror stories when you bring someone back from the dead they are always very different and you are rarely glad in the end. I don't know what to expect from a Chinese story, but he did exactly what he was asked to do. SakiVI: See, you have to word things verrrry carrrrefully in wishes.
SakiVI: Finally we are in the Ancient City of Jingjue and in a temple, woohoo! Maybe something will actually happen.
JoAnne: I've almost given up hope.
kakashi: It's an excellent episode. Well, I don't remember the details, but I'm confident it is.
Trotwood: I just watched it. Excellent is not the adjective I would have used.
Confused about who is who in 3310 aka Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms aka Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms or Eternal Love? Yeah, there's a lot of characters. Below, you find an annotated who is who, which we will update as we go and meet new characters.
Please be aware: This post contains massive *SPOILERS*!
kakashi: How do you deal with the death of a most beloved God? Easy: you make sure his body is preserved and wait for his return. JoAnne: I will just quietly point out the swell of a well-formed chest and the appeal of an adam's apple. Also a strong nose and a noble brow. We will ignore that I am squeeing over a dead body.
kakashi: We get to the goddamn Lotus. Yes, really. They made it. All will be good now. JoAnne: Sorry, I can't help but picture beardless Mark Chao smiling, now. SakiVI: focus, this is Ice Fantasy! And yes, the Lotus. But it's my lovely Lotus that I'm concerned about.
