Hey guys,

We just added our FIRST EVER Chinese animation: The Legend of Qin! While the style is quite different from Japanese anime, we still hope you'll enjoy this new title.

This tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dynasty. Premium members have access to all episodes while free users have access to 4 episodes/week.



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.

*This title will be available in North America.

Is the note about premium membership implying specifically the Anime membership? That influences what can be tried out (before Free access).

It'll be interesting to try something new. I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

They generally don't, they plagiarize other's works and call it their own.


Funny and true at the same time, same can be said about a lot of other asian markets to though.

Also is this for anime premium members or drama members?

I'm viewing the first episode at 480p resolution with Full Access Membership as this is the only resolution available for it. I hope we can view this series in higher resolution in the future.

While the CGI artwork looks beautiful and somewhat westernized, the animation is more like an older CGI video game engine.

I'm more interested in the historical legends from the Qin Dynasty as this period gives birth to Silk Road commerce with Rome and the great migrations across the islands of Polynesia.

I can access up to episode 10. However, episode 4 is perpetually stuck on Loading...
I've tried episode 4 at least 4 times with no luck. I have All Access Membership.

Awesome! Brushing up on my Mandarin (probably) and learning some history!
Looking forward to it! Glad Crunchyroll is adding a variety of stuff.

Sounds alot like Kingdom... same era and all, but... the boys stance in the poster reminds me of the hero in Kingdom.

Naruto is bigger than Qin dynasty, why don't they make another Naruto anime series with different story and all?

I wish there were more Naruto, one piece, bleach series out there!
