Water Margin

The first few stories were very exciting and intriguing to watch considering how story of the 108 heroes of Liang Shan. (Of course it’s not 100% accurate but the rough story is fine.) However,  things started to turn downhill when they decided to focus too much on a certain character. They really ruined some of the major characters in here, causing frustration and other conflicts to arise. It’s shear stupidity and can’t believe such a brilliant character has been ruined. But it’s all right. At least some of the most favorites weren’t ruined. Average series overall. With Manland China doing the show, there are lots of people to see.
Chao Gai was really a hero, really righteous and always look after his brothers. He’s a very respectable man. Too bad his life ended in tragic. Other memorable characters are Lu Zhi Shen, Lin Chong, Wu Song, Hua Rong, and Xiao Yu (Yan Qing). Others that were the original seven that Chao Gai had recruited at the beginning were also very funny and cool in a way. Too bad.
Xiao Yu’s ending is really nice and touching in a way ’cause he and his sworn sister, Li Shi Shi, get to travel the world together instead of staying behind to get killed.
As I mentioned, a character was ruined so bad, which was Song Jiang. A disappointment, considering he’s supposed to be both kind and clever.
Haven’t read the novel yet but will hunt it down to read later. But my mom gave me a brief summary. Will read it on my own to see what the difference is.
