Age of Legends 橙红年代 has quite an ambiguous title but the more I see, the more captivated I am by a story that has crime action, amnesia, brothers-turned-enemies, gangsters, a young woman avenging her father and a man who goes undercover(?). I honestly wouldn’t have gotten any of that from the character descriptions, but this sounds cool.
