I'm on episode 34 of Three Kingdoms and I can't remember any character more based and redpilled than Cao Cao

Cao Cao is quite based in this adaptation and Liu Bei is a particularly huge faggot. "muh honor" in China is another level of sheer autism. It only gets even better. Wait until Liu Bei makes his son retarded. You'll know what scene I'm talking about.

>>116497934
This was an underlying subtext of the book. Despite all the superficial claiming of muh honor and benevolence, in the end, Liu Bei was just using the lives of ordinary people and destroying the peace and unity of China for his own selfish ends.
At least that's how I learned it in Taiwan. Maybe my literature teacher was based.

He was, and it was clear, all I know about all this story is from the show. What I mean is that it could have been done better, too much retarded drama around him, and his brothers where stupid caricatures. Liu Bei and everything surrounding him (except for Zhuge Liang who bas based, but got all shitty in the end with the non-stop crying) was the worst part of the show, but it didn't have to be like that.

Yep, I came to the exact same conclusion in the book. Liu Bei was an opportunist just like every warlord in the era and for a supposed man of honor he betrayed every single one of his benefactors. He also didn't hesitate to discard and/or kill those who did not benefit him.

>In order to alleviate the shortages of labor caused by the Three Kingdoms wars, the Jin allowed millions of non-Chinese, Yi people to reside in Jin territory. Many officials opposed this decision in the name of the Hua–Yi distinction, claiming that if the barbarians did not identify with the Huaxia, they would conspire to destroy the empire.
Chinese thought they could import third worlders and teach them to be Chinese.

China's been utterly defeated time after time by forces with deficits over 10:1 when compared to theirs. Their military history beggars belief.

>>116504146
Actually, I very much liked how it was done. It's not clear cut on whether Liu Bei is an ambitious warlord that just uses the Han as a pretext to gain power or truly a selfless Han scion that wants to save the dynasty via his noble and just attitude. The dialogue that indicates the former is always very subtle, very nuanced. It's way better than just spelling it out for the audience.

Not really, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms its based on is not particularly accurate, it's considered more of a fictional saga than a true account of the period. I think it's more or less pretty faithful to the source material though
