Two more misses for me, but then I found Tribes and Empires so that’s a pretty sweet deal. What are you watching?
I heard that it’s like Overlord and after a quick google search, it’s literally the same! Qin Zhan used to be the leader of the strongest guild in the game but people came and went, living their own lives like getting married and having children while he kept at it to become the best of the best. It can get lonely at the top, yet the actual story is much lighter since it’s really a comedy in a wuxia setting especially once the hero finds himself stuck inside the very game that he’s been obsessed with for years. It’s silly, light and ultimately a little too silly for me.
Game of Hunting
I was expecting the world when it came to Hu Ge’s comeback, but I didn’t last long enough to witness his long-awaited reunion with Nirvana in Fire co-star Chen Long onscreen. The first episode was boring with so much talking. We get a glimpse of the main character’s talent for eloquence that he relies on heavily to make a quick buck. He also seems to be caught in the middle of a complicated triangle as his ex is already with another and the three stay in touch as friends. Hu Ge comes off as a pushy salesman and that’s no compliment, but maybe there is hope yet once the story gets down to business.
Volunteers Wanted: Just a shout out that we are on the lookout for volunteers to keep this section alive. Panda Impressions was initially meant to be a place to share first impressions or talk dramas, but there are too many undiscovered dramas that need some love.
If you would like to share your thoughts on a particular drama (old or new, c-drama or k-drama), please send it to us via the ‘contact us’ form (rightmost link on the menu bar) and we’ll use it in the next post if we can. Just a paragraph or two usually works, no word count required. Thank you!
