Japanese anime, J-drama, K-drama, etc. Sometimes, even I’m impressed by the amount of Asian pop entertainment to be found here on Crunchyroll… Anyway, looks like there’s a whole new genre to be added to the in-house roll call of entertainment: animation from China!
The Legend of Qin is now streaming on Crunchyroll. Premium members have access to all episodes while free users have access to 4 episodes/week. This title will be available in North America only.
Here’s the synopsis
The Legend of Qin tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dynasty, the first empire of China. During this time, the six kingdoms have been conquered and brought under the auspices of the Qin Empire, which is ruled by the iron fist of Emperor Ying Zheng. Despite this ruthless takeover, pockets of resistance stand opposed to Qin rule and fight for freedom. It is against this backdrop that we meet Tianming, a young boy who is being hunted down by the Qin Empire for reasons beyond his knowledge. Together with his friends, allies, and teachers, Tianming will change the course of history.
