SakiVI: Finally we are in the Ancient City of Jingjue and in a temple, woohoo! Maybe something will actually happen.
JoAnne: I've almost given up hope.
kakashi: It's an excellent episode. Well, I don't remember the details, but I'm confident it is.
Trotwood: I just watched it. Excellent is not the adjective I would have used.
Confused about who is who in 3310 aka Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms aka Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms or Eternal Love? Yeah, there's a lot of characters. Below, you find an annotated who is who, which we will update as we go and meet new characters.
Please be aware: This post contains massive *SPOILERS*!
kakashi: How do you deal with the death of a most beloved God? Easy: you make sure his body is preserved and wait for his return. JoAnne: I will just quietly point out the swell of a well-formed chest and the appeal of an adam's apple. Also a strong nose and a noble brow. We will ignore that I am squeeing over a dead body.
kakashi: We get to the goddamn Lotus. Yes, really. They made it. All will be good now. JoAnne: Sorry, I can't help but picture beardless Mark Chao smiling, now. SakiVI: focus, this is Ice Fantasy! And yes, the Lotus. But it's my lovely Lotus that I'm concerned about.
kakashi: Very, very, VERY busy being completely in love with 3310 aka Ten Miles of Peach Blossomes aka Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms or Eternal Love. There is nothing else in my life right now. JoAnne: It's Friday morning. I have watched Hwarang this week, and 3310. That's it. So keep that in mind for when you get to below, and judge me for how much TV I manage to watch (or don't) this weekend. Be merciful and if you happen to show up at my house, ignore the dust and dirty laundry. Trotwood: I really wish I was able to drop by your house this weekend. I'd ignore everything, but you that is. I feel like I'm the only one of the planet not watching 3310. I'm still holding on to my focus for my Korean teacher. I rewatched ALL of Noble, My Love this week to make myself feel better. I reread our squeecaps, too. Fun memories. Jaehyus: Ha, I'm the only one not enamoured of 3310. But then, I'm not enamoured of any one particular show right now. Chief Kim might be the closest to love right now.
It's good you don't like it. Good for the balance of the universe.
Oh and by the way ... we recently surpassed 8 Mio page views. Thank you, dearest readers, for fangirling with us! And fanboying. Oh my goodness really? How cool is THAT? Thank you! Congratulations to everyone who works on this. Thanks to readers and thanks to the creators who've invited me to participate. Woohoo!
SakiVI: Girl Student makes a right pain of herself in this episode. Didn’t either professor have any other students to make up their crew? At any rate, she also helps us finally get to the Zhagelama Valley, so she isn’t entirely useless and annoying,
just like 99% useless and annoying.
kakashi: Oh, look! Something happens.
Trotwood; I actually forgave her a bit in this episode. She was not whiny or anything and made sure they weren't going to stop because of her. And as Saki said. She pointed the way (although in a hugely dramatic fashion). JoAnne: I did understand and respect her wish to just press on, regardless. We have the objectivity to say she was much too sick for that, but I understand her intent. It's just that it would have been so much easier if she'd instead opted to say 'hey, I don't feel so hot' and taken advantage of the antibiotics they had available early on. I don't understand why she didn't do that. They would never have gotten to the point that they did, if she had.
kakashi: This episode brings us another step closer to war and we have a lot to worry about. The God of War remains injured and an unlikely character plots with the devils to make sure they win the war. JoAnne: Is it bad of me to be more curious about the little kid in the picture than in the fate of that witch?
