    Chapter 1 is done. Took me 5 hours to translate and my girlfriend 2 hours to proofread my shitty grammar :\

    My Father in Law is Lu Bu - Chapter 1 - Disaster Brought Forth by a Name

    Original by Bro got a Gun, Translated by James, Proofread by Jade

    Jinling Convention Center. Sunny with blue skies.

    It was supposed to be delightful weather. But for Liu Mang, the weather was a source of great torment.

    Liu Mang was wearing tight armor. It was one of the well known zodiac armor, the Aries Gold Cloth.

    [TL: Saint Seiya is very famous throughout Asia and the South Americas; I do not know why it never hit big in the US)

    Today was the Jinling Cosplay Contest. Liu Mang, who had never been interested in overpriced convention items, was dragged there because of his body. His height was to blame; standing at 1.8 meters, his frame was perfect for the Gold Cloth.

    “Which ****er brought this damn prop,” Liu Mang complained powerlessly. If you said you cosplay, then just cosplay. Why must you purchase a full metal build cosplay? Although it’s an aluminum armor, it’s still freaking heavy.

    A set of armor was twenty to thirty pounds. Not only must you wear it everywhere, but you’re unable to rest. Although this stuff was just cosplay armor, it still satisfied the principles of being real armor. You could forget about sitting down when you’re wearing it. The metal plates on the hips and thighs would most certainly allow you to experience what is known as the explosive chrysanthemum.

    [TL: I am using pounds instead of jin for ease. A jin is about 1.1 pounds. 20jin is 22lbs and 30jin is 33lbs.]
    [TL: I had to google what explosive chrysanthemum meant…. well… chrysanthemum is a flower that somewhat resemble what part of the butt? You guessed right - the anus. So… there you have it.]

    “This is custom-made by me. What, you have something to say?!” A very pleasant looking female was standing in front of Liu Mang. However, he knew that she was two faced.
    [TL: outwardly kind but inwardly evil]

    “I dare not. Big sister is the most formidable!” Once he heard this voice, Liu Mang immediately changed his sour expression to a fawning smile. This two faced woman was Chen Yi, the president of the school’s anime and manga club. Not only was she a tyrant in the club, but she was also a tyrant at school. Liu Mang dare not offend her. He wanted her help meeting girls in order to rid himself of twenty-something years of chastity. Nothing good would come out of offending her. However, today, he had been caught by her.

    “That’s more like it,” Chen Yi laughed. “Be good. After we finish with today, big sister will introduce you to girls. Do you want pure girls or mature girls? As long as they’re in our anime and manga club, I can introduce you to them.”

    When Chen Yi laughed, she looked really nice. She had a delicate face. Today she was cosplaying Hatsune Miku, and her tight fitting clothes perfectly outlined her curves.“I would be fine with you,” Liu Mang blurted out.

    “Ah?” Chen Yi was shocked. She didn’t expect Liu Mang to say that. Even her face got a little red. She was indeed a funu (腐女, fujoshi), so it took her but a moment to recover. “Liu Mang, you really are a hooligan to even dare assail me!”

    [TL: Liu Mang’s name (刘莽) is sounded very similar to 流氓 (liu mang) which means hooligan, molester, etc.]

    “Oh shit!” Liu Mang knew he ****ed up royally to have said that sentence. While Chen Yi was still in a state of shock, he immediately grabbed his helmet and started running. The last thing on his mind was his heavy and uncomfortable armor.

    “Liu Mang, you better stop running,” Chen Yi shouted.

    “Stop? Only idiots stop for you!” Liu Mang was not without pride, and if he was to be caught by Chen Yi, his life was over. As the ancient thirty six stratagems said, if all else fails, escape.

    [TL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-Six_Stratagems]

    “Molester?! (liu mang)” An uncle class [TL: old looking dude] cosplay fan watched Liu Mang as he was being chased by Chen Yi.

    A beautiful woman was calling a man “molester (liu mang)”. There could only be one explanation.

    The uncle’s justice senses began to tingle. He pointed at Liu Mang and shouted, “Molester! Molester! Don’t let him escape! Quickly, catch the molester!”

    “Catch the molester?!” Otaku and fujoshi have many taboos, one of which being molesters. Cosplay outfits can be very revealing, making it easy for cosplayers to be taken advantage of. Thus, they all detested molesters.

    “A molester! That guy wearing the Aries Gold Cloth is the molester! Guys, don’t let him escape!” One, two, three… soon there were over a hundred justice warriors following Liu Mang.

    “What the **** is this?!” Liu Mang was terrified. “I assail you with words and you send all these people after me!”

    “It’s a misunderstanding! A misunderstanding!” Chen Yi became aware that the situation was getting out of hand. The ‘Liu Mang’ she spoke of and the ‘liu mang’ (molester) that they heard were two completely different things.

    Being chased by hundreds of people… how would he survive if he was actually caught? Chen Yi was starting to regret this. “Liu Mang, run faster! Run away!”

    “Molester, run faster? Run away? Wasn’t that girl the victim? Why would she tell the molester to run?!”

    People were starting to realize it was a misunderstanding. However, before they had time to think about it, the incoming crowd forced them to continue chasing after Liu Mang.

    The “uncle” from earlier started shouting again. “Catch that molester! Catch that molester! He’s caused the girl to become disoriented! Once we catch him, we absolutely cannot spare him!”

    “That’s right. Maybe the girl said the wrong thing in anger!” The justice warriors started chasing him even more frantically.

    “****ing hell! A dead end!” Liu Mang wanted to weep. What sin did he commit in order for there to be a white wall in front of him, crushing all hopes of escape?

    “Keep running! Try running again! No where to run? You dare try to escape after molesting somebody”, the uncle yelled.

    “Uncle, this is a misunderstanding. All of this is a misunderstanding,” Liu Mang stammered. His face was covered in sweat. Anybody standing in his place would be afraid - there were hundreds of people surrounding a single person.

    “Uncle?!” The leading man completely ignored the whole “misunderstanding” bit. “You dare call me an uncle?!” The heavy-set man rolled up his sleeves, deciding to engage Liu Mang. However, he was stopped by some of the crowd.

    “Perhaps this really is a misunderstanding,” someone called from the crowd.

    “Possibly.” Another nodded.

    “Right, right, this is a misunderstanding,” Liu Mang said, overjoyed. As long as he had a moment to explain, he wouldn’t be killed. He then saw Chen Yi approaching. “Look behind you! Chen Yi, Boss Chen, please help me explain this!”

    Chen Yi saw that Liu Mang almost managed to get out of trouble. “Liu- Liu Mang, stop-stop running,” she cried while darting over.

    “Didn’t I say that he’s the molester? How would that possibly be mistaken,” the uncle asked as he continued to lead the group.

    “So it wasn’t a misunderstanding! To dare molest somebody here! Boy,you must really want die,” another shouted.

    “Why waste time talking to him!? Beat him up!”

    “Well, I’m ****ed,” Liu Mang sighed. With despair in his eyes, he held his head low and squatted on the floor. The hundreds of people immediately jumped him.


    “... running… so.. fast! I’ll explain everything,” Chen Yi finally managed to finish her whole sentence.

    Unfortunately, neither Liu Mang nor the people currently beating him up, heard her.

    “Ah- oh- ah- oh-!” Liu Mang’s miserable cries would bring a chilling sensation to anybody that heard him.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “That ****ing hurts,” Liu Mang hissed in pain. Not a single area of his body didn’t sting. “Those bastards were really ****ing ruthless!” He had made up his mind. He would get revenge on the “uncle”. He had been the worst of all, having aimed at his face the whole entire time. He worried that his handsome face might have been disfigured.

    It wasn’t until the pain subsided slightly that Liu Mang decided to stand. He looked up to see several armored soldiers surrounding him.

    “What the **** are you looking at? Haven’t you seen a handsome guy before,” Liu Mang shouted. He was still bitter about being beaten up, and now that he was surrounded and being watched like a monkey, his anger was only increasing. “****ing bumpkins! Cosplaying with such shitty armor! Look at my shiny armor and look at what you guys are wearing!“ Liu Mang wanted to vent all his frustrations on the country bumpkins.

    “And look at your blade! It’s already rusted red. Aren’t you embarrassed to bring those things out?!”

    “Who art thou?” A person who appeared to be the leader amongst the soldiers began questioning Liu Mang.

    “O-ho! Speaking archaic, are you? Why weren’t you ****ers so polite when you were beating me up?! “ Liu Mang wasn’t sure if the people surrounding him were the ones who beat him. All he knew was that he was very, very pissed.

    After listening to Liu Mang, the leader frowned and said, “Er Gozi, go and inform the city lord. Tell him we caught a Cao army spy on the walls.”

    “Cao army spy? Squad leader meant…” A soldier by the name of Er Gozi spoke hesitantly. While he didn’t know who the person in front of him wearing golden armor was, he knew for certain that the person wasn’t a Cao army spy.

    This was because the golden armored person came from the sky.

    [TL: I translated 什长 to squad leader. This is because 什长 basically means that he is a leader who controls 10 troops. While searching for it, I believe squad leader is the best term. A squad is consist of 7-12 troops.]

    From the sky. He might even be a god from heaven.

    “When I say go, you go! Why so much nonsense,” the squad leader roared angrily.

    “Yes, right away!” Er Gozi stepped back, preparing to leave.

    “Cao army. Squad leader. City lord. Pretty good acting! Why not just say I’m Cao Cao,” Liu Mang said with disdain.

    “Ah, so you’re Prime Minister Cao. No wonder Prime Minister Cao won against my lord! Turns out Prime Minister Cao is a deity from heaven,” Er Gozi chimed.

    “So you’re traitor Cao. Traitor Cao, prepare to die!” The squad leader’s face changed the moment Liu Mang said he was Cao Cao. Furious, he grabbed his blade and approached Liu Mang.

    “You- What are you trying to do?!” Liu Mang was now nervous. He realized something was wrong. The people standing before him were extremely pale and yellow- typically a sign of malnutrition. If it had been one or two individuals, he might assume they were suffering from anorexia. However, this was a whole group of people.

    Liu Mang watched as the man approached him. His eyes were bloodshot, and his stare was like the stare of a beast.

    “What am I trying to do? I’m going to kill you and avenge my mother!” The more he spoke, the more demented he appeared. Even his blade was trembling. He was called Cheng Yu, a man from Xu Province. In the first year of Xing Ping, Cao Cao’s father Cao Song was killed in Xu Province. Cao Cao, in an effort to avenge his father’s death, sent troops to invade Xu Province. The Xu Province was then owned by Old Tao. Not only did Cao Cao scare Old Tao to death, he even killed civilians of Qulu, Suiling, and Xiaqiu.

    [TL: First year of Xing Ping = first year of Emperor Xian of Han’s rule = 192 BCE]
    [TL: Old Tao = Tao Qian]
    [TL: Qulu, Suiling and Xiaqiu are counties located in the Xu province.]

    Cheng Yu’s mother was a victim of the invasion.

    “Murderer of my mother, we cannot live under the same sky! Today, I, Cheng Yu, shall avenge my mother,” Cheng Yu cried.

    What kind of situation was this? Liu Mang was confused. When did he kill this man’s mother?! Forget killing. He couldn’t even afford to touch or bump into her!

    “Squad leader- squad leader!” The soldiers pulled Cheng Yu back. It was clear that they didn’t have virtuous intentions. Liu Mang’s confusing appearance simply frightened them.

    “All of you, let me go! Today, either I die, or he dies!” Cheng Yu began breathing loudly. His murderous aura was getting stronger.

    Liu Mang saw that the soldiers would soon be unable to stop him.

    A loud drum noise was suddenly heard.

    “Shaaaaa!!!!”

    [TL: Sha = kill, it’s a warcry in this aspect. I kept the original because Killllll!!!! sounds…. kinda lame..]

    My Father in Law is Lu Bu - Chapter 2 - Guys, We Are on the Same Side!

    Original by Bro Got a Gun, Translated by James, Proofread by Jade

    “Cao army! It’s the Cao army,” a voice shrilled from the front of the city.

    “Prepare to engage the enemy!” A man wearing a helmet stepped out. On the walls, there was suddenly the sound of drums.

    “Squad leader! Squad leader! It’s the sound of the drums! The Cao army is attacking us,” a soldier shouted from the side.

    “Hey!” Cheng Yu yanked himself from the soldiers’ restraint. He stared at Liu Mang, saying “Consider yourself lucky. I’ll take care of you after taking care of the Cao army!” He then directed a group of his soldiers toward the front of the city.

    “What the **** is wrong with this world!?” Liu Mang raged. First he was beaten, then he almost lost his life. Having experienced so much in a single day, how could he not be angry?

    Liu Mang walked toward the direction the soldiers left. He wanted to find his school mates; to find Chen Yi. He wanted to find her and make her introduce him to at least seventeen or eighteen girls as a compensation.

    Liu Mang cursed as he walked. However, the more he walked, the harder it was for him to curse.

    Ancient walls, dark red with spots of rust! The rows of triangular shaped houses and the wastelands…

    Without noticing, Liu Mang arrived on top of a crenelated parapet wall. The scene in front of him caused him to freeze on the spot.

    “Sha!” After arriving on top of the walls, a soldier in white grabbed his blade and started slashing at a soldier in black. As the slash hit, red liquid flew.

    The soldier in black was not to be outdone. Although he was wounded, the spear he held still managed to pierce the soldier in white’s body. As he pulled his spear out, a series of things also followed.

    “Blech!” Liu Mang immediately started puking. He most certainly could not have mistaken the red liquid as tomato sauce. It was blood. It really was blood! And those series of things… were guts.

    Liu Mang’s vomiting wasn’t his main concern. Another soldier in white had climbed the wall. When he saw Liu Mang dressed in golden armor, he first appeared surprised and then overjoyed. He suspected that Liu Mang was a high ranking general. Thinking that he had caught a huge fish, he shouted toward his comrades nearby. “Our lord had given the order; a reward of ten gold for every LuBu soldier to be killed and fifty gold plus three promotions for every company commander and above. Shaaa ah!”

    [TL: once again, keeping sha ah as the war cry instead of ‘Kiiilll! ah!’]
    [TL: 都伯, after much consideration, I figured it should be a commander of 100 soldiers. Hence company commander.]

    All of the sudden, Liu Mang became fifty gold and promotions to these soldiers in white.

    “Lu Bu army?!” Liu Mang’s mouth started twitching. Earlier, when he was surrounded by those soldiers in black… the Cao army they spoke of… is this for real?!

    Liu Mang was still in doubt, but a thundering sound caused him to be completely convinced.

    “Lu Bu Lu Fengxian is here! Who dare intrude here!? Soldiers, follow my lead!” A towering man with his hair pulled back in a golden headdress, donning a flowery-patterned battle robe, encased in body armour decorated with images of the ni and wearing a precious belt adorned with the image of a lion came out. He gazed at the fight. The soldiers in black, who were originally facing immediate danger, suddenly gained a boost in morale and rushed out following him.

    [TL: ni is a mythological lion]

    “Lu Bu, Boss Lu?!” The man in front of him, despite not welding the Sky Piercer, was described exactly as written in history. Could it be that he really was Lu Bu?!

    [TL: Sky Piercer is the english translation of Lu Bu’s halberd.]

    While Liu Mang was distracted, he suddenly felt pain in his chest. A long sword had stabbed his chest. A fierce looking soldier in white was bleeding and staring at him with beastly eyes.

    He wants to kill me? Having been born in a peaceful era, Liu Mang had never experienced such eyes. War was a distant thing, not to mention a war conducted by cold steel.

    “Die trator Lu!” The soldier in white forcefully stabbed Liu Mang’s chest with his long sword.

    “Clang!” There was a crisp sound of metal colliding. Liu Mang could only feel the pain in his chest. The long sword created sparks as it collided with the Aries Gold Cloth.

    Liu Mang could no longer have any complaints about his armor being constructed from metal. Had it been cardboard, he would’ve been dead. Liu Mang believed that the sword, although rusty and cracked all over, would have been able to penetrate his body easily.

    “****!” Liu Mang wasn’t weak minded, so he didn’t wet himself. However, he still panicked and started shouting. “Bro! Bro! I’m not part of this! You slashed the wrong person! Wrong person! Boss Lu’s subordinates are there!”

    Although the Aries Gold Cloth covered him for the most part, Liu Mang was holding the helmet in his hand. At this point, it was too late for him to put it on.

    “Bullshit! DIE!” He couldn’t pierce his chest. Well, in that case, his head was free to be cut. The soldier in white licked his lips; Liu Mang had already become gold, land and promotion - the soldier’s credentials for wealth and status.

    “Splash!” A gush of blood took off with it a head.

    “Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!” Warm blood sprayed across Liu Mang’s face. He screamed.

    “Stop the scream!” A soldier in black stepped out from behind the headless corpse. He was the squad leader that sought to kill Liu Mang.

    “Br-brother! I’m really-really not boss Cao’s subordinate!” Liu Mang stuttered.

    The squad leader looked at Liu Mang but remained silent; he knew the golden armored man wasn’t Cao Cao, nor could he be Cao Cao’s subordinate. If he was, then that Cao army soldier would not attack him. Who was he? He was obviously not a part of the Lu Bu army.

    The squad leader thought about it before wiping the blood off his face. “You follow me!” He figured he could think about it after repelling the enemies. He then rushed toward the opposing army.

    Follow you?! Liu Mang wasn’t stupid. Although the squad leader saved him, he had wanted to kill him earlier. Only an idiot would follow you! He ran in a different direction.

    “What!” The squad leader killed yet another Cao soldier that came up the walls. He saw Liu Mang escaping and threw away his broken blade. He then picked up a fresh weapon from a nearby corpse and started pursuing Liu Mang.

    “The heck?! He’s chasing me?!” Liu Mang had already put on his helmet. While he was running, his Aries Gold Cloth had been glittering in the light, causing him to be a target for both Cao army and the Lu Bu army. Even if killing Liu Mang didn’t give gold or promotion, that armor he was wearing was still a priceless item.

    Just as Liu Mang was stuck between a rock and a hard place, a thundering voice came from the palace on the wall. “Daring traitors!”

    [TL: what a palace on the wall might look like http://file.chinatraveldesigner.com/...b6aed5e6b.jpg]

    Wasn’t this the voice of Lu Bu, Boss Lu?

    Cao Cao’s siege on XiaPi. Although watermarks were all over the walls, one could still see parts of the wall’s original construction.

    [TL: Cao Cao ordered his soldiers to flood XiaPi, hence the watermarks.]

    “On top of the White Gate Tower, Lu Bu was captured,” Liu Mang slowly muttered. Following the capture, Lu Bu was to be decapitated on White Gate Tower.

    “Save Boss Lu! Rescue Boss Lu! I’ll live if I rescue Boss Lu!!!” Liu Mang was surrounded with enemies, isolated and without help. The Cao army wanted to kill him for riches and promotion. The Lu Bu army wanted to kill him for his armor. At this point, his only option was to save Boss Lu.

    Right after rushing into the White Gate Tower, Liu Mang started feeling regret.

    “Who art thou that darest break through the White Gate Tower!” A seven foot tall, bearded burly man glared at Liu Man. Behind him stood another robust man of similar size tying up Boss Lu.

    [TL: original text uses chi, a chinese foot. 1 chi = 1.094 ft]

    It was clearly written on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms that Song Xian first stole the Sky Piercer then, along with Wei Xu, captured and tied up Lu Bu.

    “Damn it!” Liu Mang cursed in his heart. How could he possibly have forgotten about Wei Xu and Song Xian. If one compared the soldiers outside of the White Gate Tower to minions… then these two are most certainly bosses. Although these two are only second rated when compared to the rest of the generals in the Three Kingdoms, they were still generals. They were most certainly a lot stronger compared to Liu Mang who doesn’t know how to fight.

    “Wrong direction, I went the wrong direction!” Liu Mang slowly retreated out of the White Gate Tower. He would rather face the horde of minions outside than the two bosses.

    [If anyone could think of a less awkward way of saying wrong direction, please do tell.]

    Song Xian glared at Liu Mang. The person in front of him, who wore such elegant golden armor, was most certainly a high ranking officer. Song Xian knew all the high ranking officers in the Lu Bu army. Thus, this person was most certainly not part of the Lu Bu army.

    Could he have been prime minister Cao’s man?

    “Perhaps sire works for prime minister Cao?!” Song Xian asked cautiously. To wear such golden armor, his position was most certainly not low.

    “Prime minister Cao?!” Liu Mang understood right away. Song Xian and Wei Xu was likely tying Lu Bu up as a gift to Cao Cao. If he said no, then Song Xian would most likely chop off his head right then and there. Liu Mang decisively started nodding “Yes, yes, yes.”

    “Oh, so it was prime minister Cao’s man.” Song Xian relaxed and laughed. “Myself is Song Xian and this is Wei Xu. I wonder how to address you, sire. For we are both working under prime minister Cao, regardless of positions, we should help each other.” Song Xian had already started making connections.

    “Myself is Liu Mang. I work under general XiaHou as a company commander.” Liu Mang lied.

    “Company commander?!” Unlike Song Xian, Wei Xu started doubting. A company commander wearing a golden armor. Are you ****ing with me?

    Song Xian gave Liu Mang a pat on the back and began trying to get friendly with him. “Brother Liu Mang, as you can see, we have captured traitor Lu. We are only waiting for prime minister Cao to arrive at the tower. As for the credits…” What Song Xian meant was that he should gain merits for capturing Lu Bu. Although he didn’t know what position the golden armored commander had in the Cao army, he knew that he was of a better standing than a surrendered enemy general like himself.

    “Renegade! Renegade!” Lu Bu who was tied up stared at Song Xian and Wei Xu with glearing eyes. “Song Xian, Wei Xu, I have always treated you good. Why are you doing this!?” he yelled angrily.

    “Noisy!” Song Xian refused to give Lu Bu a chance to speak. He found a piece of cloth and stuffed it in Lu Bu’s mouth. Lu Bu’s fury could only be heard as an ”mmmmm mmmm” sound. It wasn’t that Song Xian refused to answer, but rather that he felt guilty. Afterall, Lu Bu had treated both Wei Xu and him well. But even mole crickets and ants try to live, and if they had followed Lu Bu, they would’ve certainly died. As a talented bird chooses a tree to nest in, they too decided to choose a different patron to work under.

    Right as Liu Mang was trying to find an opportunity to escape, Wei Xu who had not spoken a single word so far asked as if natural “I wonder how the injury to general Xiahou Dun’s right eye is.”

    “What right eye, it’s the left eye!” Back when he was reading the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Liu Mang had previously debated over whether it was Xiahou Dun’s right or left eye that had been injured. Right after saying this, Liu Mang knew that this Wei Xu was testing him.

    [TL: Raw says right eye instead of left eye… based on what I knew, Xiahou Dun lost his left eye…. unless all the dynasty warrior games were a lie!”

    Seeing that Wei Xu’s hands were already on his blade, Liu Mang couldn’t help but get nervous. “Could I have mistakenly said the wrong thing!?” If he was killed because of this, he really couldn’t even cry over it. However, after noticing that Wei Xu’s hands left his blade, he felt a wave of relief.

    “Brother Liu, do you know when prime minister Cao’s troops will arrive? We have already thrown Lu Bu’s Sky Piercer outside the gates.” Wei Xu lowered his guard against Liu Mang.

    “Right away, right away!” Liu Mang remembered that these two good for nothings tied up Lu Bu, threw his weapon away, and in less than an hour the Cao army occupied White Gate Tower and execute Boss Lu.

    “Lu Bu Lu Fengxian! Word of mouth had it that within men, Lu Bu, within horses, Red Hare! Former has it general Hou Cheng who presented the Red Hare. Latter has it generals Song Xian and Wei Xu tying Lu Bu. The three generals’ accomplishments are most certainly big! Boundless prospect!” complimented Liu Mang.

    “You’re too kind,” said Song Xian. However, he was very much delighted in his mind.

    [TL: nali nali is translated as where where, which is what Chinese people use to humbly denying a compliment. Currently using you’re too kind. If there’s a better translation, please do tell.]

    To even know about general Hou taking the horse, Wei Xu finally believed Liu Mang.

    “This Lu Bu, Marquis of Wen, looked very formidable!” Liu Mang pretended that he had never seen Lu Bu before and slowly walked toward him.

    “I have always heard father and brothers say that Lu Bu, Marquis of Wen, is invincible on the battlefield, able to take on multiple foes at once. Having seen him today, he is merely so so.”

    “Humph!” Lu Bu’s mouth was stuffed and he could not speak. All he could do was snort.

    Father and brothers?! Having fought Lu Bu?! In the Cao army, those who are able to have fought Lu Bu and survive are only people like the Xiahou brothers, LiuGuanZhang, and Xu Chu. Every one of them are dauntless generals of the Cao army.

    [TL: Xiahou brothers refer to Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan. LiuGuanZhang refers to Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.]

    No wonder the small time company commander is wearing golden armor! This armor really is beautiful, with it’s huge horns, exquisite patterns, and it’s connecting plate armor.

    Liu Bei is a fake Junzi. At least Cao Cao wears his heart on his sleeve. Liu Bei? Dude's a major hypocrite.

    btw, just finished chapter 4

    This story is getting interesting!

    Thanks James!

    Oh, and if possible could you post the direct link to the chapter in this thread? Sometimes I overlook a new chapter if I don't see a wall of text or a link
