Legend of Sho release date is on December 8, but let’s get to know the team behind it and a short overview of the series. The donghua is adapted from Shushan Qi Xian Lu (Legend of Shu), a popular Chinese manhua that revolves around a fantastic and action-packed story of adventure, filled with supernatural cliches, and our typical Chinese humor and antics.
During the An Lushan Rebellion of the Tang Dynasty, monsters are everywhere and the people were destitute in the Central Plains. Li Haobai started from the Bashu and wanted to go to the front line to make a meritorious deed. On the way, he was swallowed by the monster. By coincidence, Li Haobai and the guardian of the dragon’s veins merged with each other to obtain the power of the black dragon.
