Koutetsu Sangokushi #1 [Subs, Kyuuketsuki]

So this is the one that even Koyasu-sama said had "the scent of boy-love" about it? Well. It's shamelessly full of posturing villains and posing bishounen. And everyone speaks with a beautiful, smooth voice. The first warrior we meet is so busy being cool and calm, he isn't even aware of his surroundings. He's THAT cool-headed.

Okay, this sucks. It really really does. But it's the good kind of suck.

Wait, there's more! Koyasu-sama plays an extremely gay warrior with a fluffy fan. When he has his monologue with his young apprentice, you can't help laughing just a bit, because the sexual tension is sky-high. Then theere's a flashback where Koumei combs Rikuson's hair while he rests adoringly at his feet.

Unlike "Bokura no", they don't bother with too much exposition. They just show each character briefly, freeze-frame and slap their names up on the screen! YEAH!

On the sub front, Kyuuketsuki don't seem to be as adept as Triad. Their word choices are a little overblown, but 'm probably nit-picking because they did exactly what I said bugged me in my last post and slapped their name on the titles as if they owned it.

This is just so awesome. I just never said it was GOOD.

Ancient China? Maybe. But I don't think it matters when you have transforming flaming armour and swords. The clothes seem accurate, but I'm not sure about the rest.

The clothes and summary reminded me of Romance of Three Kingdoms type of story.

But it's the pretty boys and seiyuu of course that are interesting^_~

Koutetsu Sangokushi is based on Three Kingdoms, it's from Lu Xun/Rikuson PoV. :)

Ah, thanks for telling me. So that makes Koyasu with his fan Zhuge Liang?

This show is sooo yaoi-ish that it's embarrassing to watch! XD
