  • The King's Avatar

    When The King’s Avatar animation (also known as Quanzhi Gaoshou) came out in 2017, it caused waves. All of a sudden, people couldn’t stop talking about The King’s Avatar. Adapted from a novel by Butterfly Blue, which is officially available in English, the series has since become a comic, an animated series and a live action series. The animation was released to massive success, with millions of views across YouTube and Bilibili. Since then, it has received a second season and a movie, with a third season in the works. So, the series is popular. People definitely like it, but why? To begin with, the show takes place in a world where the massively multiplayer online (MMO) game “Glory” has taken the world by storm. In the fast-paced sphere of Glory’s competitive league, one player has risen to the top. His professional name is Ye Qiu, and he is nicknamed “The Battle God” for his performances as one of the best players in Glory’s esports league. The story of The King’s Avatar begins with an ultimatum. Due to a number of reasons, his team has decided to switch captains and support a new rising star. They tell Ye Qiu he has to hand over his character and give up his position on the team; they give him the option to either be demoted to a training partner, or retire. He chooses to retire. Suddenly kicked out of the team dorms and out onto the streets, Ye Qiu - now going by his real name Ye Xiu - manages to find work at a nearby internet cafe. Realizing his retirement coincided with the release of Glory’s newest server, Ye Xiu begins to form his team so that, in a year, he can return to flip over the whole competitive league. A lot of the success of The King’s Avatar comes from its ability to capitalize on its setting. Video games have seen a massive surge in popularity, and while several shows have explored video games as a setting, very few have gone into the player-side of a competitive e-sports league. The first season focuses heavily on establishing the setting and systems of "Glory." We learn about some of the more unique aspects of "Glory," like its specializations, which are the game’s classes - and the fact that someone can play as an unspecialized character, which is basically a jack of all trades - and how the protagonist’s near-encyclopedic knowledge lets him do things that people consider weak or unplayable. Seeing the other characters react to what antics Ye Xiu gets up to is incredibly amusing, and a lot of the show’s best moments surround him shocking other players with his godlike knowledge. We see the old friendships and rivalries of long-term veterans, and we see the bittersweet growth of new talent replacing old. The King’s Avatar has a very long list of characters, which is eased a bit by their uniforms and dorms grouping them into teams - making it easier to see how characters relate to one another. For MMO players, this show is immensely enjoyable. While it plays fast and loose with some mechanics of the game, it doesn’t hesitate to use its medium to its advantage. Characters fight seemingly in real time, mostly unbound by things like global cooldowns or area of effect circles, in favor of making the combat as cinematic and beautifully choreographed as possible. What it doesn’t ponder too much in mechanics, it makes up for by touching on some of the more common problems in multiplayer video games - namely toxicity and competition. Players try to kill other players for the pettiest reasons, and they aren’t afraid to take disputes to world chat. The King’s Avatar shows how Ye Xiu uses that behavior against those acting out. The author understands that a lot of this behavior comes from a place of passion, but they show that it doesn’t make the behavior excusable. People get called out for common issues like sexism, and when they get tilted, that just gets taken advantage of by the cool-headed and capable Ye Xiu and his friends. Honestly, it’s great to watch! For people that don’t play MMOs, have no fear. The King’s Avatar is very watchable, even without any prior knowledge of the gaming sphere, as so much of its story hinges on the interpersonal character conflicts. When Ye Xiu rips someone off in-game and that person comes back with a party to try and kill him, you don’t need to play games to appreciate how funny that is. When Ye Xiu’s team kicks him out for being too old in favor of the egotistical rising star, you don’t need any prior knowledge to be angry at how shortsighted they were. While playing MMOs might help you catch some of the smaller inside jokes, or maybe give you a better understanding of the more common systems, Ye Xiu spends plenty of time teaching new players as he prepares a team for his return. The show does a good job of being understandable by everyone. While both the animation and the live-action cover the same overarching story, the live-action makes more changes to best adapt to its medium. Where the animation enjoys copious amounts of very beautiful action work, the live-action plays up the human drama aspects of the series. Ye Xiu’s employer is more contentious in the live-action, and gives him a hard time for not knowing how to do anything but game. It makes for a much more comedic, human series than the fast-paced, game-oriented animation. While I highly recommend both versions of the series, the animation is probably more enjoyable to people interested in the game setting itself and the live-action for people who just want to enjoy the characters. Overall, “The King’s Avatar” is a series that takes a refreshing spin on a popular setting and - much like Ye Xiu himself, does a lot very well.

  • Brotherhood in Wuxia

    Brotherhood exists in every culture, and this seemingly unbreakable bond is shared by many. While this theme is found in countless stories around the world, the genre of Wuxia has a unique focus on it. Of the Immortal Storyverse’s stories, Fa Sheng: Origins exemplifies this theme, and brings to light questions of whether or not it is always the right path. Despite being 18 years of age, the titular character Fa Sheng is often called “Wa-er” (Chinese slang for kid) by his senior martial brothers of the Righteous & Harmonious Fists. He often frowns at being called “Wa-er,” but gets excited to finally participate in the Armor of the Golden Bell Ceremony, where he can shed his “husk of mediocracy” to become strong, like his senior brothers. This ceremony involves a ceremonial elixir, and Fa Sheng knows that participants are expected to become energetic and proud upon drinking it. When he finally drinks the ceremonial elixir, he feels empty, while his fellow brother-in-arms become energetic as expected. This occurs shortly before they all decide to attack the Germans, whom they feel are stealing their land. Hierarchy matters greatly in martial arts sects, where most disciples are expected to show great respect, sometimes even reverence, to those who outrank them. The youngest disciple is often expected to do favors for his seniors, and serve them obediently, while the seniors may also tease and embarrass younger disciples to no end. Because of this, many want to move up the ranks, as this is associated with greater skill, as well as greater respect from your juniors. Disciples who move up ranks and/or get older are expected to be role models, which is another aspect of brotherhood in Wuxia. Fa Sheng’s reaction upon drinking the elixir is very atypical, and this leads to a change that his brother-in-arms do not expect. After Chinese Imperial General Yuxian arrives late to a meeting that he arranged with local members of the Righteous & Harmonious Fists, General Yuxian attempts to make up for this by offering alcohol to them, and even addresses them as “brothers-in-arms.” The leader of this group, Zhu Binhou, refuses the alcohol, and General Yuxian responds with smirks and offers no apology. Everyone expects General Yuxian to honor his words due to his distinguished title and rank. By dishonoring his words, and committing rude acts in front of others, he proves that he is a bad role model. This results in a loss of face, which is an important concept in both Chinese culture and the Wuxia genre. Maintaining face involves honoring your words and doing whatever it takes to avoid tarnishing one’s reputation. Although he outranks everyone else, the others openly express their disappointment with him. With hierarchical power like this comes the potential for abuse, and this is a perfect example of that. His smirk proves that he is aware of how he is abusing his position, and failing to meet the expectations of his new brothers-in-arms, and shows us how little he cares for their respect in turn. When Fa Sheng is on the verge of attacking the German priest Anno and the children that Anno is guarding, Fa Sheng stops in his tracks to consider whether attacking them with his martial brothers is right. Junior brothers are expected to follow exactly in the footsteps of their seniors. If he did not follow them in this attack, it is not an exaggeration to say that Fa Sheng would be seen as disobeying his seniors, and betraying them. Many martial arts sects would punish their disciples for disobeying orders; however, betrayal may have even harsher penalties. At best, such disciples are excommunicated from the sect. At worst, they are executed for betrayal. Should Fa Sheng give up on this brotherhood, his only family, to follow the right path? Brotherhood is a universal theme, and one that allows audiences to relate to characters in the Wuxia genre, and empathize with their desire to belong. Fa Sheng: Origins demonstrates not only the benefits, but also the expectations and conflicts that come with that fellowship.

  • Zhong Kui: King of Ghosts

    Ghost hunters exist in many cultures, with Zhong Kui being the most prominent one in Chinese culture. Unsurprisingly, he has been featured in numerous Wuxia-related media. His popularity extends to other countries such as Japan, and he has even appeared in Western media! We will explore the origins, legacy, and different media portrayals of him. According to legend, Zhong Kui was once a human who passed the imperial exams with high marks and earned the title of Top Scorer (Zhuang Yuan in Mandarin). Because of his supposed ugly appearance, the emperor stripped his title. Zhong Kui later committed suicide by hitting his head on the palace steps. When the judge of the underworld Yan-lo Wang noticed Zhong Kui’s intelligence, he deified Zhong Kui and bestowed the title of King of Ghosts onto him so he could hunt and maintain order among all ghosts. Zhong Kui became popular in Chinese culture when the Tang Emperor Xuanzong dreamt of Zhong Kui killing the evil spirit that made him sick. He recovered the next day and had court painter Wu Daozi draw Zhong Kui. He later gave an imperial edict for households to hang paintings of Zhong Kui during the New Year to scare away ghosts, diseases, and other misfortunes. Even today, his image is used to protect expensive goods. While there are numerous TV dramas and movies about Zhong Kui, we will focus on two noteworthy ones. The Chinese Ghostbuster is a 1994 Hong Kong movie featuring Wu Ma (of A Chinese Ghost Story fame) as Zhong Kui and Lam Ching Ying (of Mr. Vampire fame) as a Taoist priest. This movie is unique in that it is set in contemporary Hong Kong, and Zhong Kui is looking for the perfect husband for his ghost daughter! Another is the 2015 Chinese movie Zhong Kui: Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal. This features Chen Kun as Zhong Kui and Li Bing Bing as Snow Girl (both actors starred in Sword of the Outlaw, a TV drama adaptation of Shiao Yi’s novel!). This movie portrays Zhong Kui as an anti-hero, who is set up to steal the Dark Crystal and discovers that his former love Snow Girl has been consigned to the underworld; lots of liberty is taken to make the movie more romantic than any previous tale of Zhong Kui. In addition, the character and creature designs are very Western influenced. In addition to movies & TV dramas, Zhong Kui is also featured in multiple video games. Known as Shouki in Japanese, he is a summonable demon in the Shin Megami Tensei video game series. Titles featuring him include Shin Megami Tensei IV, Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2, & Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. He is featured in the mobile game Smite as Zhong Kui: The Demon Queller, and is a DLC (downloadable content) character in Hunt: Showdown. The last two games are especially noteworthy, as these are western developed games. While not as well-known as the hopping vampires (Jiang Shi, check out our article on them here) in the West, Zhong Kui’s popularity cannot be denied. It is only a matter of time until his next media appearance, and it will most likely be more accessible to the world than before.

Shipping September 2021. ​ Double-sized Issue: 48 pages Written by Peter Shiao Art & Cover by Pop Mhan Letters by Deron Bennett Printed on 80 lb paper stock with a 100 lb glossy cover ​ ​ Remembering the Hero Within A young man’s heroic awakening into an ancient order of supernatural warriors who are charged with protecting the world but face a devastating, new civil war. ​ In the second title of the Immortal Storyverse, we are introduced to the Immortal Swordsmen who have served as a hidden vanguard of humanity in a time when the great RECKONING is tearing the world – and them – apart. This comic book adaptation of Shiao Yi’s classic Wuxia novel, Immortal Hero, by his son, Immortal founder Peter Shiao, swaps the ancient mystical mountains for today’s urban jungles, and brings the timeless Immortal journey of cultivation to today’s psyche. This time, the supernatural weapons, mysticism and enlightenment of the Immortals are met with the prowess of tomorrow’s technologies wielded by those who have not ‘earned’ them, coming together in a world that can only be described as the ANCIENT FUTURE. Story Phil Du has always felt a yearning in his heart for something so awe-inspiring and indescribable that it overwhelms him, but his life in the real world has only been filled with struggle, confusion and chaos. Even though he has found solace as an urban parkour and an alter-ego as “Ironpond” in a virtual fantasy game – his visions of infinite freedom, even immortality – have simply been the unreachable dreams of a confused young man. His growing troubles and the appearance of Jade Swallow , an alluring, ever-present figure who appears– even in his virtual world – and always remains just out of his reach, pushes IronPond Du to face his conviction to pursue a hidden Immortal Cave in real life and in game with his esports team, Brickhouse, that promises answers and powers. All of this coincides with the disappearance of LA Chinatown restauranteur Frank Fat along with many other strange, unexplained deaths happening around the city, and Ironpond Du suddenly finds himself in the middle of a brewing civil war between supernatural warriors who have splintered apart -- perhaps as someone who will tip the scales.

Let us know if you have a Wuxia film that you really like that you think should be added to this list. Wuxia Literature and Cinema While there are many terrific Wuxia films like the ones in our list, in some ways, Wuxia literature has been poorly served by cinematic adaptation. Some films promote style over substance, stripping the novels down to a mere sequence of fights and training montages. Wuxia literature is much more than simply an assortment of battles arranged into a plot. Wuxia is a complicated genre of literature which, standing at the crux of fantasy and historical literature, manages to create an independent identity that has made it one of the most dominant forms of popular literature throughout East Asia.

FILM DESCRIPTION: Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee took a break from making Western period dramas to fashion this wild and woolly martial arts spectacular featuring special effects and action sequences courtesy of the choreographer of The Matrix (1999), Yuen Woo Ping. In the early 19th century, martial arts master Li Mu Bai (Chow Yun-Fat) is about to retire and enter a life of meditation, though he quietly longs to avenge the death of his master, who was killed by Jade Fox (Cheng Pei-pei). He gives his sword, a fabled 400-year-old weapon known as Green Destiny, to his friend, fellow martial arts wizard and secret love Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh), so that she may deliver it to Sir Te (Sihung Lung). Upon arrival in Peking, Yu happens upon Jen (Zhang Ziyi), a vivacious, willful politician's daughter. That night, a mysterious masked thief swipes Green Destiny, with Yu in hot pursuit -- resulting in the first of several martial arts action set pieces during the film. Li arrives in Beijing and eventually discovers that Jen is not only the masked thief but is also in cahoots with the evil Jade. In spite of this, Li sees great talent in Jen as a fighter and offers to school her in the finer points of martial arts and selflessness, an offer that Jen promptly rebukes. This film was first screened to much acclaim at the 2000 Cannes, Toronto, and New York film festivals and became a favorite when Academy Awards nominations were announced in 2001: Tiger snagged ten nods and later secured four wins for Best Cinematography, Score, Art Direction, and Foreign Language Film.

A more contemporary take on the evergreen tale of wise kung-fu master and purveyor of justice Huang Fei Hong (Jet Li), OUATIC is set in 1875 China when hostilities between the Chinese and the invading foreigners are simmering to a boil. Huang and his disciples take on the unscrupulous dealers who are trying to entice gullible Chinese into slavery in America and save his Aunt Yee (Rosamund Kwan) who is in danger of being shipped off to be a prostitute. Tsui Hark raises the bar on martial arts epics with OUATIC via imaginative technology and thrilling choreography.

An unambitious painter named Gu (Shih Jun) lives with his mother in the vicinity of an abandoned mansion rumoured to be haunted. In actuality, the mansion has become a hiding place for the warrior Yang (Hsu Feng) and her own mother, both taking refuge following the assassination of their loyal minister father by the wicked eunuch Wei of East Chamber. After the eunuch sends an army to pursue the escapees, the group fortify the mansion with traps and false intimations of the terrifying ghosts within. But even after, things take yet more unsettling turns... Famed for its iconic set pieces, including the central bamboo forest battle, A Touch of Zen is one of cinema’s truly peerless action sagas and the precursor par excellence of such modern wuxia films as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers.

It is a story of action, transformation and mystery, but at its core it is about homecoming. And what’s homecoming without a chance for redemption? And you know what ALWAYS comes with redemption…? KUNG-FU - ok not always. But ours does! We couldn’t be more excited to kick off this limited series, the first in the Immortal interconnected Wuxia content universe. Welcome to THE ADEPT! ​ THE ADEPT is about Amy, a young Chinese-American who runs away from an abusive home, destined to be another orphan street thug. But then she is visited in her dreams by a Shaolin Kung Fu Master, who begins to train her in the wilds of this Dreamscape, preparing her to face an unnamed evil that he'll never speak about. The dreams give her meaning – purpose – the training empowers her – and she learns to cope. But why her? Amy scores tickets too a benefit concert for Ali's favorite singer - Sasha True. An international sensation, famous for catchy lyrics, flashy dance moves and a beat with a killer hook. (Sasha is more than what she seems, and when the going gets tough her "true" colors will be revealed) Then, with no warning, the dreams just stop. And just as suddenly as he came into her life, he's gone. Was he just a figment of her imagination? ​ It’s now been ten years and Amy comes home again, hoping to rekindle the relationship with Ali, the younger sister she once abandoned. Ali has had her own trauma and pain in that time, but she covers it up with a carefree, carpe-diem attitude. If you don't think about your pain, did it ever really happen? Amy scores tickets too a benefit concert for Ali's favorite singer - Sasha True. An international sensation, famous for catchy lyrics, flashy dance moves and a beat with a killer hook. (Sasha is more than what she seems, and when the going gets tough her "true" colors will be revealed) What could possibly derail the reunion of the estranged sisterhood? Bad guys. When a kidnapping attempt targets Sasha, Amy has no choice but to break out her Shaolin skill learned from her dreams. But this is no amateur kidnapping, it's a well-organized attack from a shadowy operation. ​ And then, among the commotion…a surprise. She comes face to face with the Shaolin Master from her dreams. Wu-what indeed. ​ We can’t wait to introduce you to Amy, Ali, Fa Sheng, and Sasha and we’ve got much to unpack over this series. Where has Amy been? Why did the dreams choose her? What is this shadowy organization and how is it connected to the Shaolin Master? And hold up, the Shaolin Master is real?
