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!

Ah u r right. Now that I read it again, I guess he was talking about himself. He really was 'retired'... Literally. My major is accounting with tax specialization. Very practical major I guess... As for u who still dunno what to study, I guess it's okay too. It's true that knowing what to do earlier is better. But choosing the 'wrong' major to study is also a learning process. I have many successful friend (financially) who redo his study because he thought he chose an unsuitable major for himself. As long as u always do ur best to walk the path u chose, whatever the choice, i think it will work out somehow (because the hardest part is not the choosing part... But bearing the consequences of each of our choices). So take it easy n do it wisely. As my master said, "A choice becomes wrong not because of the result. But because of how we accept n react against the consequences of our choices". I wish u way more than luck

 

Wow... Thanks bro... You sound really wise... Like Gandalf... 

 

Accounting with tax specialisation.... Awesome... I bet 10 bucks the guy who messed up the oscars had the same major lol.. Just kidding... (Don't have 10 bucks)

I think I'll stick with CS.... Already got an internship lined up and all after an early graduation.... What a grind....  It would be awesome if there was a real school of watermirror... or hogwarts... I'd take either one..

Finally done with high quality volume 49 (389-395). Since I did 388, I might do volume 48 aswell!

You're right. It's easy to lose the thread and get confused easily in this series when one reads a couple of chapters a month. Especially if you are not aware of the novel at the very least.
 
What is your major in college? Going to give my SATs this year but I'm not entirely sure what I want to study (or do in life... gaahhh! so frustrating)

Really, this manga should be read at one go - while keeping a note about who attack who, plotting what against who, where, and when. The conversation between characters also use nuances and subtle mockeries heavily - means another thing to keep note for.

 

But what can I do? The released chapters are too tempting to be ignored. The only choice that I had is to re-read it again in the future.

 

This is the only manga so far that I consider as the same as my college lecture... too precious to be forgotten...

 

On a side note,

We'll know more about the 8th i the next chapter. Can't wait!! A shout out to Atarame for bringing out the newest chapter. Thanks bro! 

Oooh... This map is nice and informative.. Did not see that before.. Would love to discuss this manhua with people, but my own schedule due to personal reasons is erratic at best so I just stalk online forums which discuss ravages *does creepy laugh*

I find it frustrating that few people read this series, much less talk about it. It's really up to us fans and students to make Ravages more renowned.

I uploaded chapters 388 > 391 in higher quality for those who are interested in reading older chapters.

I'll try to do the rest of the volume aswell.

 

 

 

Awesome!!! Thanks bro! I'm rereading this manhua again, so I'll be able to post a chapter wise summary on the wiki. HQ uploads would be awesome,as I can put some good pics and stuff.

 

And speaking of the wiki.... It's a hot mess. The guys who started this realized the scope of the work and gave up. Just created some pages without adding any content, pictures categories etc. (except the one on Xiao Meng, thats just plain hilarious). The wiki has hardly been touched since 2010. I'll start working on the chapter-wise summaries, and then work on arcs, character etc.... 

 

Just uploaded some of the pics, whose link you gave me. I know fuckall about running a wiki, but I'll do it anyway.

Awesome!! A question.. Do you have character profile pics of the err.... character?? Thinking of reviving the TRoT wiki... That would probably help getting people interested in this work...

 

Sounds good. I pmed you links

The 2 individuals were identified on a Chinese forum as Ma Liang and Ma Su as Agtra mentioned, but I'm not sure if it's Ma Su or somebody else

 

 

I had the raws a day before so it was a smooth ride! I do try to release chapters as fast as possible ^^.

 

The picture was from an official (I think) mobile game:

Found it by coincidence and the roll behind ZF looked so convenient that I couldn't resist it!

The only thing I did was remove the colors around ZF to make them less distracting.

woah... That's some fast update.. I barely read the raws on mercs site!!!! I think we should have a shrine built for you and dvmitto

 

Also, who coloured Zhang Fei's picture in the credits page... It has been done very well... I've looked at some of the coloured pages of TRoT on deviant art, and owing to the art style not all of them turn to be so good... This is one is really good!

Based on my three kingdom knowledge they are Ma brothers. The one with white eyebrows is possibly Ma Liang, while the other is Ma Su

 

 

Now that you mention it... Yeah that's probably Ma Liang.. He had whitish eyebrows in the novel (& probably historically too)...

whooo are these new people with neato facial hair?

I don't think he really saw that far ahead into the future. I think he only see her as someone really talented and think she can be useful to his lord. Not much different than Zhuge Liang who lowkey trying to recruit Huo with his "Why do you serve immoral lord? Why not go to the righteousness path?" speech.

 

Right. It's the translation not being able to keep up with the repeated use of historical quotations. What the 8th is really saying is that to him Xiao Fan was far more useful than Liaoyuan Huo could ever have been. A woman like Xi Shi who could fell empires was after all significantly more valuable to a strategist than even the toughest assassin. His main objective was simply to prevent Xiao Fan from leaving his service, hence he never told her about Huo's continuing penance. That Liaoyuan Huo actually became the great general Zhao Yun was a later development that he happily exploited.

 

The 8th knew he came regularly to the tree, but he tricked Xiao Fan into believing that she had been abandoned and convinced her to become an assassin in Zhao Fan's payroll... I must say, that's some crazy amount of preparedness to the point of being unbelievable. I mean that's like around 18 years back, to look that far ahead.... Jesus, who is that guy? And how the hell.....

Hmm strange, after rereading chapter 474 here I notice some darker images. Will get them changed asap.

 

I have a question requiring the readers' opinion, I enlarged all the pages in the latest chapter as the raws were rather small. Do you notice a big difference between the 3, particularly 2 and 3?

 

 

 

Didn't notice a thing. Looked great all the way through! Thanks for the hard work you put in!

Some extra info on chapter 472's colored cover: The chinese scans had a different one packed with writing and other manga as seen here:

Fairy tail (particularly) bugged me so I did some digging to get a plain version and found these:

I really liked the gold so I changed the yellow into the shiny substance that everyone likes!

 

So, do you prefer the custom golden one in chapter 472 or the first image with the Chinese writing and stuff?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wahahaha! What a wonderful morning... Waking up to 6 updates!!! Thanks @Atarame and @dvmitto!!! Now you guys have caught up and can take it easy..

 

A pleasure! I used the title font you liked as the base while at it.

 

 

 

 

 

~~~~EDIT~~~~

 

I can't upload anything in the edit of 474 so Mods if you read this please change pages 12 and 20 with the ones in this link http://imgur.com/a/9ngzS

Nope... Huo did not die... Remember the 1st chapter??? Where Sima Yi dreams his future?? Huo will not die till then (I think)...

 

 

Jesus, who is that guy? And how the hell.....

However, considering the author does take some creative liberty with the story, e.g, Xiao Meng, so take the above with a grain of salt.

So Huo and his lover died or just his lover?

Both outcomes would be almost equally bad. Dying here would be a waste although any battlefield is as good as any
I guess for a soldier and this was a difficult mission, but also it would be too bad
never to get the chance to reunite with the mother of his child and his son might hold it against him too.

I think that only his lover died because he bound himself with Zhao Fan, so he chose him, but
the movements of Zhao Fan soldiers behind him and his words about death imply that both lovers are simultaneously killed.

The part that Huo was visiting her though doesn't add up well to the previous info about their past.
It's like they put it here, in order to his lover believes undoubtedly on him and dies in peace, longing for him.
You know having both their arms stretched out and all.

As for Xiao Fan... She's probably a goner... Though I'd really hate it if that happened.. I feel bad for Huo... first Xiao Meng, then Sun Shu and now Xiao fan..

 

Huo did not visit her... But he visited that tree in her memory... If you remember a couple of chapters back, Xiao Meng lied to Huo , and said Fan was dead or missing... So he took it as a gravestone(?), as a site to remember her by and visited it often.... Meaning he was still devoted to her... That's why he still wears those ear rings...

The 8th knew he came regularly to the tree, but he tricked Xiao Fan into believing that she had been abandoned and convinced her to become an assassin in Zhao Fan's payroll...

Eight Genius made his entrance.. and goddamn his convo with Huo is just amazing. And also the love story between Huo and Fan ;_;

 

God, these chapters are so fantastic. I keep reminded why I love this series so much.

Get ready for a barrage of chapters ! →→→
