Crunchyroll continues to expand its inclusion of various Asian properties by bringing in a new animated series from China called Legend of Qin. The series will have all of its episodes available on launch for premium users while free users will get four episodes added per week. As of this writing there are ten episodes available. The series is set for North American viewers only.
Plot concept: The Legend of Qin tells the story of the rise and fall of the Qin Dynasty, the first empire of China. During this time, the six kingdoms have been conquered and brought under the auspices of the Qin Empire, which is ruled by the iron fist of Emperor Ying Zheng. Despite this ruthless takeover, pockets of resistance stand opposed to Qin rule and fight for freedom. It is against this backdrop that we meet Tianming, a young boy who is being hunted down by the Qin Empire for reasons beyond his knowledge. Together with his friends, allies, and teachers, Tianming will change the course of history.
