any suggestions for a good manga/manhwa? Something violent/historical/action but well rendered.
I Strongly suggest Chang Ge Xiang (Choukakou in Japan) 'Song of the long march/ Chang Ge's Journey'
It's a Manhua that takes place in during the Tang Dynasty in china (618-907), and focuses on a Chinese princess and son of the Great Khan of the mongolians. The Main MC is ofc Chang Ge and shes the strong and smart type female lead. I think I once recommended it to DR but can't remember. I would also Suggest Shut Hell (also focuses on the mongolians) but I'm not sure if DR brought it to your attention (I introduced it to him and he loved it so im not sure if he did or not).
There's also 'Ichi' another one with a strong and badass female lead (like Chang Ge and ShutHell), the ending was rushed and could've been better but its one of my favorites and im sure you'll enjoy it. Or at least i hope you do. But it's another spin on the blind swordsman ichi legend in japan but with lead being a girl and being a student of the real deal.
