yoshitoshi: caocao

When even hanzi don't help

To have it handy-- the Dynasty Warriors cheat sheet aka Who's Who in 3K with off-putting pictures and spoilers galore. No, they're not (all) fat men with beards and yes, once you've plowed through the requisite chapters it's nice to have a summary that will remind you who these guys are, even if it also tells you how they died. Some of these guys, anyway. There are an awful lot of guys in 3K and they mostly spend their time killing each other. Man, if this yawnfest is the Romance, I'd hate to read the History. And this, boise girls, is why I avoid sengoku jidai as well.

PS Possibly I've been biased by mauvecloud or possibly it's just anvil-heavy obvious that Cao Cao is being shafted by the narrator.

ETA: hanzi for the Cast of Thousands.
