  • Looking for wuxia recommendations says

    2014-01-04 08:42:56

    Hi again! Thank you, Helen K, for your reply! I will search for those titles and I hope I will like them!
    =) :)

    It is a pity that there are not much female-lead series then, but let’s see if they make some series like that.

    Best regards.

    (By the way, I thought my comment wasn’t here, when I was trying to post it, but now I see it is here, thank you).

  • Looking for wuxia recommendations says

    2013-12-30 01:49:54

    Hi, there. Recently I found this page and I think it is very interesting, thank you for making it!
    I don’t know much about these series, but I’m interested in knowing, that is why I am here.

    I’m looking for wuxia tv series with these characteristics mainly:

    First, comedy:
    * Very funny / comical. Lots of comedy !!
    (Or at least not tragical. I do not want to watch “tragedies”).

    * No tragic endings… some series are comical and the last episode is tragic. I do not want to watch series like that.

    * NO “romance”, or very little “romance”. The least “romance” as possible.

    * CLEAN: no vulgarity. No “adult” content whatsoever.
    No “adult” or inappropiate situations and scenes, please.

    series where women are the main characters and are stronger than men, more skilled than men.

    Something like “Feng Yun” maybe, but women instead of male in the main roles.

    Also, please without adult content, vulgarity, and “romance”.

    Are there some wuxia series that are somehow related or based or something on the table game “chinese checkers”?

    I think that also would be interesting.

    Recommendations in general with those characteristics: lots of comedy, no “romance”, clean, etc. are welcome.

    Do you know some wuxia/Martial Arts series like that?
    In “Youtube” or somewhere else, with engish subtitles?

    And preferably with CHINESE actors… chinese or from other parts from Asia, but not korean actors, please…

    Thank you!
    And sorry for the english, I am not an english speaker.

    P.S. Also, thank you for uploading in “Youtube” the series “The Mischievious Princess”. I recently started to watch it and I think I like it, so far, although I’m dissapointed on the fact that the main character, the princess is played by a korean actress, I’m sorry!
    But I think, until now, that series is entertaining and funny.

    • Helen K says

      2014-01-01 04:44:39

      wow that’s a lot of requirements!!!

      Out of the series recommended in this post, I think either Legend of Qin, Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, or Legend of the Condor Heroes 2008 would be most suitable for you. All three have quite a few comical moments and limited “adult” content. And all three have at least one amazing female character. (no female leads, sorry. I can only think of like two wuxia series/novels where the main character is female. And they’re both very focused on romance)

      Sorry if i get anything wrong here. I haven’t actually finished watching Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, but what I’ve seen so far is absolutely amazing and seems to suit you’re requirements really well. Plus I am more than a little biased when it comes to Legend of the Condor Heroes!

      I hope this helps!

      2014-06-30 08:48:42

      I think you’ll like Xiao Ao Jiang Hu, 2001 version with Li Ya Peng as Linghu Chong and Xu Qing as Ren Ying Ying! Ren Ying Ying is badass. :)

    • Bomfunk says

      2014-07-23 11:29:11

      I can not believe it. You’re the same as me. I love strong female lead in the main roles, and where girls are stronger then men. I also romance, if it’s not a lesbian romance. ^^

      Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei is the only good wuxia for us. Unfortunately the girl is not in the lead role, but she is from the fourth major. And almost no romance. Cool story and cool fights, especially when fighting a girl. And a lot of humor.

    2013-12-18 09:53:27

    Hi, I stumbled onto your site when I was looking for some period dramas and what can I say…………the first thing I did was to see your top recommendations and immediately settled for Strange Hero, YZM. And like so many others I hope that the story will not end…….I think that there might be a Part 2. The best part of your site is that the dramas are english subbed and Im surely going to watch some of the dramas recommended and do some forum post.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi, actually I haven’t watched any chinese historical dramas yet. I’m so used to watching Korean historical dramas so I’m not familiar at all w/ chinese version.

    So I was just wondering if U can give me any recommendations on top-10 great dramas? Some people said about Mu-Lan, Scarlett Heart, Three Kingdoms??

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-11-10 09:32:03

      Sorry but I’m the worst person to recommend historical cos I myself don’t watch anything historical, not that I don’t like it, but I have major hard times understanding it, because of all the war/politics and stuff, it always befuddles my brain and I end up just not getting any of it, the only ones I can recommend are fantasy, romance, martial arts and they’re on this page.

    After getting into my studying pattern I totally blame this site for getting me back into watching period dramas! I’m totally obsessed with these dramas now. AHAHA as a kid I LOVED these types of dramas and now again I’m back into it. Everything makes me swoon

    PS. I love all the dramas you have recommended! I also remember watching Princess Pearl as a kid ahahah you’re amazing and I’m like on your youtube page watching dramas all the time!

    • sapphiresky says

      Oh and swap gender comedy types are AWESOME !!! Let’s see, sadly there aren’t a lot of them but Treasure Venture is definitely like that too but I’m not too sure what you’ve seen and haven’t

  • Cuong Diep says

    2013-08-10 07:12:46

    There’s a series that I watched as a kid and I’d like to watch it again, but can’t remember the name of it. Maybe someone here can help me out. The main character is slow-witted (sound familiar yet) and uses a grass/rice cutting machete as his weapon (at the beginning anyway). Another character is a man who uses a wider sword. One of his special moves is that he jumps up in the air and spins with his sword out, killing multiple people at once. After this, he has a special way of putting the sword back into its holder (putting the bottom of the sword at the top of the holder, then dragging it down). The series I watched was probably made in the 1980′s and likely filmed in Hong Kong. Thanks y’all.

    2013-08-10 06:20:47

    There are so many on the list, I’m not sure which one to watch T_T
    The only wuxia drama I’ve ever seen was Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, which I watched completely spur-of-the-moment. I loved it so much, that I while I really want to see another drama like it, I’m afraid of being disappointed… are there any in this list that are quite similar to it? Thanks for the list!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-08-10 07:07:26

      Hmmm all the ones I listed above are my all time favs, so I can’t really choose :O I don’t tend to stick to one particular type of show, but many diff ones so it’s hard for me to pick out something that’s similar. I just love every single one on this list, they all have something RAELLY special in it :D

    Thanks for the wuxia recommendations! I haven’t watched the genre for a while but now I’m obsessed with it once again. Finished Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei and I really loved the characters and the way the actors portrayed them (Ying Wuqiu’s actor was a bit meh though). I’ve been watching Liu Shi Shi’s dramas since and just finished the modern day wuxia police movie she’s in called Badges of Fury. You should definitely check that out if you haven’t already.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-07-30 11:36:42

      OMG it’s so great hearing that you’re obsessed. nothing makes me happier than seeing more fans of this!

      Did that have ancient parts? it sounds SO interesting!

I watched xuan yuan sword 3, Chinese paladin 3, strange hero yi zhi mei, 8 avatar, big shot, journey to the west, legend of the condor heroes, return of the condor heroes, royal tramp, seven of the sky, spirit of the sword, and more. I love wuxia. Well what else is a must watch. Something you won’t regret watching. Please tell me. Thank you. Love wuxia.

      YAY I AM SO HAPPY to hear that you are such a big an of the series and OMG wooow it’s really cool you saw all of these :D HAHAHHAA oh if i had to choose a unregretable show that’s a mustwatch, that’s not on your list, it’s Qin’s Moon… even though almost everyone will say the s1 and 2 animation is not really good but seriously the story is… SO WORTH IT!

    It is airing right now. I think you may like, but it’s not for me. I dont like wartime drama.

      Yeah I think I’m more on fantasy and martial arts than waretime as well!

      2013-06-16 07:48:19

    There’s so many Wuxia but I was looking for the “Palm of Ru Lai” 2004 in English sub but can’t find it anywhere on google search

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-09 10:55:29

      Sadly everything that’s subbed is on my site, so I don’t think the one yo’re looking for is subbed.

    i love Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei. but i got sad when i finished watching all the episodes because i didnt want it to end. i feel like im part of the family. i would like to know if theres a complete series of the new swordsman english sub? thanx for this site!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-01 12:24:26

      Awww I know how you feel! I also get sad when my fav shows finish!
      Sadly Swordsman isn’t completed in subbing yet. I will surely post about it if it does. I’ve been waiting about it too, a few subbing teams have picked it up but only eps up to 10 are subbed so far.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-04-17 08:11:27

      OMG I know what you mean, it can be so easy to run out LOL! Thankfully I have a lot of Jin Yong Wuxia series to catch up, but you may also like to check this list: http://www.ancientchinese.net/index.php?topic=247 it may have additional series you haven’t seen before!

  • Alice says

    2013-04-15 09:38:50

    Xuan Yuan sword 3 is my favorite out of the list hehe ^_^

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-04-15 06:22:56

      I’m really happy someone loves it as their favourite! YAY! All these are my favs that I can’t choose HAHAHA, I need to add some more soon when they become subbed.

  • amy says

    2013-03-09 05:34:46

    is there any shows that are either like the mischievous princess or a show that has a girl dress up as a boy

    It doesn’t have to be english subbed

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-03-09 10:16:22

      Hmmm I think out of the ones listed here, Seven of the Sky and Legend of the Condor Heroes have moments where a girl dresses as a boy, they’re all some of my all time favorites.

    • bbqnjl says

      2013-03-10 01:03:30

      Eternal Happiness is all about a girl who dresses up as a guy. And it’s my favorite!

    this has been the best serial i’ve ever watched without exagerration!

    it is clean, non violent, really funny, deep, and teaches values and sense and wisdom.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-02-11 08:01:34

      Always really happy to hear people say things like that, I am SO HAPPY that you really enjoyed one of them in this!!!! LOVE to hear more of you around the site, and chat to you one day. I know it will be reallyyyy fun to discuss the shows with you!!!

    Oh im also watching Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei which is great. One question umm there is a wuxia drama called The Legend of Chinese Zodiac(十二生肖传奇) and iwas wondering if anyone will english sub it because the drama looks great but i dont know mandarin.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-02-10 09:33:35

      AWW THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just SO SO SO HAPPYYYY that you enjoyed these shows and saw the subtitles. I will surely try and make more subs for people whenever I get the chance. It’s always amazing to know that people are so positive about it!!!
      OMG about Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, YAYYY that you’re seeing this too. OMFG this is so exciting
      But about the Zodiac, I have heard of it but I don’t think it’s subbed, because I’ve n ever seen any english versions out there. I will always try my best to add any eng subbed shows here as soon as I find them :D DDDD
      HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO AND NICE TO MEET YOU! btw if you ever wanna chat about shows, just leave a comment anywhere on a post and we can have a big convo haha, those are so FUNNN!!

    Biggest 2013 blessing so far is stumbling upon this great site. I just started watching Qin’s Moon and it is very good anime. I plan to watch Xuan Yuan Sword 3 Legend-Rift of the Sky next as per your top recommendations list. Having the English subs is great way to re-learn my mandarin!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-01-04 07:41:59

      OMFG YOU ARE AMAZING, thank you so so so so much for your comment, that totally made my day! I am so excited you stumbled on this site and discovered Qin’s Moon! How did you find it? Just curious. I’m really excited you’ll be checking out the recommendation list. Hope to hear more from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And also are you guys going to sub the bride with white hair 2012? Sorry for the long question. Im too excited as i just discovered this blog. Thank god. You guys r awesome =)

    • sapphiresky says

      2012-11-14 11:51:35

      OMGGG!! WELCOMEEE!! SO HAPPY TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!!!!!!! It’s always so exciting getting new comment and people saying they’re excited to find the blog :D YAY that makes me all happy haha.
      Ohhh you can download Taiji Prodigy on my site :) But sadly I haven’t had the chance to upload it to be watched online. I’m quite interested in Bride with White Hair but I’ve got my hands full with subbing Qin’s Moon so it may not be for a while. SO EXCITED you’re enjoying the shows, really hope to hear more from you!!!!! :D How did you find the site?
