Description
Nearly 2000 years ago, the prosperous Han dynasty of China collapsed. Heroes rose and fell, and three nations emerged--Wei, Shu, and Wu. Historians refer to this period as the Three Kingdoms period. The romance of the three kingdoms is an intriguing tale of heroic deeds, of alliance forged and broken, of loyalty and betrayal...

Hong Kong artist Chan Mou retells this classic tale in "The Ravages of Time" from the perspective of the Sima clan, which in the end united the three kingdoms. Readers will be attracted by an array of well-developed characters and Chan Mou's own unique top-notch art-style. Whether you have played Dynasty Warriors or not, this is definitely worth a read!

Horrible translations for most of the parts

Part of the charm this series offer is the dialogue, and is a huge one at that. Here in the conversion to English, much of the wit displayed are lost. Word plays of homonyms are complete gone now, and unfortunately not replaceable in English.

The aesthetics of the content are quite beautifully drawn and told, and sadly gives a toll to the editors and translators.
They knead their heads, and they need their aspirins

The words,

Told, Toll
Knead, need

are an example of the word play. In it's Chinese counterpart, "Shang Ren, Shang Ren", may sound alike, but is spelt differently. "Merchants, hurt people." were used to describe the main character in the story.

I would rather the Translators/Editors rewrite the entire script to suit the English audience so as not to mangle the original's intention on creating superb storylines.

5/10 for translations (confusing moments, terrible direct translations in some section), 9.5/10 for original script. I need not say the artwork starting from vol 11 onwards exceeds beyond any other mangas you can find. Characters stand out, and the intensity of some of the drawn artworks are so compelling that you will seriously stay glued to the series.

Edit: I think the efforts to translate the series has improved a lot since the date I posted, and it's much more enjoyable. Edited, 26 July 2010.

An excellent manga, though a lil confusing at parts and the names are hard to remember (since I'm not use to chinese names), but overall, a very enjoyable read. I don't know the story of the Romance of Three Kingdoms, but this manga makes me want to go out and buy a copy. This manga has a strong plot and interesting characters--highly recommended.

You are supposed to read this series armed with at least one read-through of the original work, so dont give up when you feel confused with the way new characters introduced and hard-to-follow narration. Read again, or wiki it up.

Absolutely beautiful! The best sangokushi manga ever!
The detail..oh the intricate details of the art is just mindblowing!

Only one small thing is that the translation sometimes fails to convey the true meaning of the proverbs. The groups does include some detailed and accurate explanations at the end of chapters but it just seems kind of weird when you're actually reading it.

Another Masterpiece...

Yet again, I found another masterpiece was created by men... Whether the story has been altered or realistically based on fact, it doesnt matter, it taught me really a lot, just like I found a teaching in Vagabond and Chang Ge Xing.
My apology, but for this time, I'm here not to write a proper review but just to express my gratitude toward the author (both "romance of 3 kingdom" and "ravages of time") and translator by spilling what I feel.
The last, may the opinion will differ for some other readers towards this literature, dont feel disturbed, because me just a mere man amongst men...

Currently, I'm still reading vol 16 since I've discovered this manga is available in my country and all I can think of is why I'm not reading this sooner. I give the mangaka a high score for making such a twisted plot that captivated. I'm a big fan of Romance of Three Kingdoms, Qin Dynasty, and Sun Tzi The Art of War so yeah, I'm satisfied with this awesome manga. Totally recommended!!

This story is fascinating with all the unique character designs, but it becomes quiet complicated at the moment. I'm really not sure what's going on and who I should be cheering for.

Much respect for anyone brave enough to translate this one. There are simply too many culture specific details to for it to completely compatibilize with the English speaking population. This is a very fine and detailed work, and highly recommended to those interested in Late Han dynasty and any Chinese readers.
