Recap: The Devil Punisher (Ep. 13)

I actually found this episode to be the most engaging of the past few, probably because there is very little time spent on Zhong Kui and Xin Yu, and a lot more time spent on a little bit of the endless open questions and loose threads that this show has created.

Drama Review: Love and Redemption (琉璃)

Love and Redemption (琉璃), a 2020 Chinese xianxia drama, is the first historical/fantasy drama I've completed in a very long time.
