During the 4th century, war broke out between the feudal Northern Wei dynasty and Southern Liang dynasties, leading Liang's General Lin Xie to take his only child, the 19 year old Lin Shu, to battle. Unexpectedly, Lin Xie was framed by a political rival, causing the unjust deaths of seventy thousand Chiyan army soldiers, just after they drove off the hostile Wei forces. After barely escaping with his life, Lin Shu establishes the Jiangzuo Alliance with the help of Langya Hall and makes a name for himself as Mei Changsu, chief of the pugilistic world. Under the alias of Su Zhe, he returns to the capital of Liang 12 years on to overturn the injustices imposed on the Chiyan Army and secretly assist his friend the unfavored Prince Xiao Jingyan in his battle for the throne.

Superior Strategy Compassionate Drama Series
27 May 2016 | by jjscongSee all my reviews

Nirvana in Fire (Lang Ya Bang) is a combination of martial arts, war strategy, friendship, respectful, ways of doing things, history of the ancient, different groups of people and the motive of how to reveal the truth after a war. The story will touch your emotional straight away when it reaches certain part of the stories. I am assured of you watching it will follow me tears down. The martial art is the most superb part besides others. The way they have been trained and those typical movements, it is thoroughly being studied. The beautiful scenery of all really making you feel so good and there are some humors in between if you follow through. I watched it purely in Chinese because I love the original voices of all. Don't forget that there are also some truly bad people villain in marvel as to say, how they have strategist to make the good and honest troop fall into the pool of fire in "May Ling". The pain and sorrows arisen. It also talked about how other higher authority bullied and framed others through physical plans but with "Mei ChangSu" who is brave, most intelligent and a bit sarcastic but with good heart giving advises to the prince - "Jing Yan" once his best friend but this prince really do not recognise him till last.

When I watched the first episode, that already leading me wanted to watch the second and so on. The entire flow of the stories really good despite towards the end, a little slagging but it comes back when they wanted to investigate the old case that the King himself had made mistake by listening to the two (find out more). Mei ChangSu is the no.1 leader towards his troop that spreads around all places. Everyone respect him but he is too weak to fight this on his own. His lovely body-guard, a kid called, "Fei Liu" is truly funny listening to his two or three words without a full sentence but he could understand the entire meaning. The brave and beautiful "Mu Ni-Huang" who fights and love deeply that always able to win in each fight. She is a true warrior.

Here, you can see, learn, feel, comfort, anger, sad, normal, and etc feelings that you could ever imagine. How do they help each other and togetherness never break chaining them without regret. I have watched every single episode and I felt sad + happy when I watched the last episode. In my mind, it is like I have attended classes to view the history myself even though it is a total different with three kingdoms but had given me the insights of human nature, the kind and warm, justice and truth, the evil side and bonded love and friendship. I love this and therefore I have given a 10 rating.

Patience is the key to watch it because all details in each episode truly touches heart and enjoy the entire series.
