    I wish David F. Walker’s run on Nighthawk would’ve been longer but I think the subjects that it dealt with turned people off.

    But honestly...I find it easy to really despise Cybele Rou, the main antagonist...Probably the Yujiro Hanma vibes though there's more.
    I remember that one. The last I tried to catch up on the plot, there was a boxing match between some guy and an alien.

    I think that was a side story before the final (and only) tournament arc because Cynthia the Mission was pretty short now that I think about it.

    Hana, the sister, was alright. Yes, she told on Tenko but she was scared of their abusive father. And while it was too little too late the mother and her parents did stand up to Kotaro before they all died. And Tenko is less anti-christ and more abuse survivor manipulated into something much worse by a madman with power.

    Okay, so apparently my newfound appreciation for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms has a simple reason - Each retelling naturally carries its own spin. The original story actually delved very shallowly into characters. Dynasty Warriors gave us very clear "good, neutral and bad" sides. But the 2010 series above all others humanizes an insanely large cast of characters (with a few exceptions). Liu Bei is given depth and a multi-faceted personality, and he is simply better than most at hiding his personal failings while undeniably rising to many instances of glory and honor as ancient China defined those terms. Cao Cao is the greatest, most cunning and most affable anti-hero/anti-villain that I have ever seen. The 2010 series is rife with good music, epic stories and truly multi-layered stories. It makes Kingdom's portrayal of political intrigue look like a golden age superhero comic.

    My one caveat is that, due to the very nature of the story and the time in which it was written, women are necessarily confined to a very narrow set of roles. "Morality" in the story is very Confucian in nature, and one thing I admire about the 2010 version is its willingness to both exhort the virtues and expose the inherent flaws in Confucian morality. The show leaves space for viewers to interpret for themselves, instead focusing on developing its characters and how their motivations and abilities lead to the Three Kingdoms era playing out as it did.

    So if you do check out Three Kingdoms, I recommend watching the 2010 series.

    I actually slightly preferred the first trailer. Not really a fan of some chosen special one being the reason to bring Picard out of retirement. Picard doesn't need that sort of Macguffin. He's in many ways the Captain America of Star Trek, and is at his best when his worldview is challenged and he goes through a personal journey to reconcile himself with or take a stand against the world.

    But I'm glad to see him commanding a ship of some sort. Jeri Ryan returning as Seven of Nine in a far more fleshed out and deeper role than before looks promising. She and Picard both have a complicated past with the Borg, and now that she's had time to acclimate back into her human nature rather than facing every episode as some novel human/borg issue starting with undeveloped views, she may have some great perspective to add to the show.

    Yeah, I think Hinomaru Zumou could have used another chapter or two. The final fight with the Yokozuna felt a tad rushed, or just not as emotionally heated as the matches building up to it.

    But Hinomaru Zumou has my respect as a series. It did incredibly well and had the guts to end rather than milking its success for money. It never beat around the Bush for romance, and instead integrated the romance into both character's arcs. And I truly felt the connection and pumped up nature of the athletes. A great series.
