    Song of the Long March by Xia Da

    Song of the Long March by Xia Da





    Genre: Action / Adventure / Drama / Gender Bender / Historical / Seinen / Tragedy

    Mangaupdates

    Extract of the review written by Inzaratha from MiAnymeListIf you are searching for your next favorite try Song of the Long March, it is an intelligent tale of revenge and survival after a political coup set in historical China.

    Song of the Long March ( aka Chouka kou) is Not your average manga or rather manhua.

    Li Change is the daughter of the emperor and is raised in a way to cultivate her intelligence rather than her beauty. When her family is assassinated in a political coup by another family member, she escapes and disappears while allowing her death to be faked so that she can plan revenge. This is a gender bender and she lives as a boy. This is the story of Change's journey.

    The art is first rate. The female mc is very smart and strong but she is real and not superhuman, she sometimes fails. That also leads to another great thing about this story, a great plot with a story that you really are excited to read the next chapter, a plot done with realism where you don't know exactly what will happen next. The characters do not fall into stereotypes of either reverse harems or buxom chicks, they have good and bad sides to them and personalities. There are no purely evil or good characters in this but multifaceted human beings.


    I only have read the first 2 chapters and I wanted to open the thread here . Nice art, nice plot, really nice characters (by casualty I was looking for a story about a strong woman, so I got lucky). I see it's also historical story.

    Does someone know of some references for this story? In what ancient story the author inspired to write this one?

    Not sure on historical accuracy.

    MC seems to be a historical character, however none of her deeds was ever recorded other than the name.
