Alright, I was agonizing if I should post this in the Chinese bl section or rather in the non-bl Chinese section. Long story short: “Guardian” is a series that is based on the novel of the same name. The novel is totally bl while the series … met with Chinese censorship. There have been many changes from the source material and one of the biggest is certainly that there is no explicit bl and we’re just stuck with some insinuations and, well, two gorgeous main characters that are so well portrayed by their actors that I … still felt like I was watching a bl series. 😅
So, the Chinese bl section it is. 😉
What is the series “Guardian” about?
There have been quite a lot of changes from the novel so I’ll really only tell you what the series is about.
The basic storyline is still the same, though: There’s the Special Investigation Department, in short SID, that is working on some supernatural cases in Dragon City. Their boss is Zhao Yunlan, the so-called guardian. While he is working on a case at the local university he meets Professor Shen Wei and … well, it feels like sparks are flying but as far as Zhao Yunlan says he just feels that this guy is really familiar.
Somehow, Shen Wei is being connected to nearly all the incoming cases of the SID so those two meet up a lot more and more or less start working together.
All the cases that are occurring recently seem to have another thing in common: They have to do with the four Hallows that are tied to the so-called “Dixing”-people, some sort of mutated alien-race that totally looks human on the outside but has some special abilities. The SID now has to prevent the Dixing-people to get their hands on the Hallows.
