I will give you a home. I want to stay with you, always. [...] Wait a little longer for me... won't you…?"" If he closed his eyes, he could remember each one of those humble names, each one of those dirty smiling faces, their eyes shining with light, flashing with unreserved trust.

I love that the reader is introduced to the fantasy world with relatively little expositional-onboarding. It works really well with an established and competent adult protagonist. He knows how his world works and how to navigate the politics, and so the things that he accepts as normal, the reader does too. I also appreciated how the self-indulgent younger character introduced earlier on (not usually my favorite character type) became the sensible comic relief character as things progressed and how the main character felt a bit of responsibility to mentor him.But do the honorable gentlemen know that this Xihe-jun of yours, renowned for his virtue, would actually let a filthy traitor wear a mask to act as his personal attendant?” Don’t worry, your death won’t be too painful, nor would it be too pathetic. On the contrary, it will be very meaningful.”

Gu Mang es una cajita de secretos, llegamos al punto en donde ni siquiera tiene idea de los tantos secretos que lleva dentro de sí mismo. Nació como esclavo y al darse cuenta de sus habilidades no solo buscó una oportunidad para sobresalir por su cuenta, quería que otros esclavos también lograran grandes cosas hasta que sucede lo que ya se comentó al inicio. El tema de la esclavitud suena mucho en esta novela y muestra las marcadas diferencias que hay entre los estratos sociales. He quietly followed along, reciting those vows that had once been carved into his mind yet were now unfamiliar: "We share in the robes of war, no victory, no return..." He mounted an ordinary warhorse the color of dates, the plumes on his helmet waving in the wind. The city gates opened, and the army moved north. In that moment, once more, he returned to the side of his old friends, his comrades, and his Northern Frontier Army, as an insignificant footsoldier.
Mo-dage..... I’ve done everything I could do, I just ask you, in the future, to have some more thought for me.” One last note: I know I shouldn’t compare this to 2Ha, but I’m going to do it anyway! Out of the two books, 2Ha definitely has a much more significant impact, because it goes from some of the most wholesome things you’ve ever seen to really dark shit that leaves you reeling from how extreme it is, whereas Yuwu starts of dark and heavy, and remains dark and heavy till the end. 2Ha is also a lot more humorous, and as someone who loves humor, I really appreciated that. However, Meatbun definitely learned a lot from 2Ha. Yuwu is much better written, a lot easier to follow, and I wasn’t exhausted when I finished the book. Everything was still really extreme and if you’re looking for angst, you’re definitely gonna get it, but it didn’t leave me smashing my kindle into the wall out of frustration and exhaustion and rage, so that was really good too.
