Having listened to the episode, I'm kinda sold on these now. I've heard a lot of references to Romance of the Three Kingdoms across various media over the years, but I'm not familiar with the original story, and was always a bit wary of trying to get to grips with any adaptations in case it relied too much on assumed audience knowledge. I remember feeling that particularly with Fuse: Memoirs of a Huntress, as it seems to take for granted that the viewer is quite familiar with the Hakkenden legend.

I'll see if I can screen the first Sangokushi film at our next 'watch random OVAs' session.

Thanks for your continued support Prof 👍

As we said in the podcast, these specials are worth watching, Lewis and I were in the same boat, seen lots of references but never read the original story but I think you don't need prior knowledge to watch these as they tell the story with sufficient context. We plan to review some more adaptations so it will be interesting to see how well each tells the same story.
