    Why It Should Get Picked Up:
    This is gonna be adapted as a drama
    The legend of Mulan is always interesting
    It was being translated but they stopped more than a year ago
    Description:
    Ever since He Mulan, a 28 year old forensic investigator, transmigrated into the post-army civilian Hua Mulan’s body, she’s been under a lot of pressure. Unlike the folktale ending, there are no flowers or applause to be found here. After leaving the army and returning to her hometown, word by the countryside has painted the now 32 year old Hua Mulan as a homicidal maniac, an old hag, and a freak of nature, among other nasty things. Between piecing together Hua Mulan’s scattered memories, grappling with her fellow villagers’ prejudice against her, and fending off Mrs Hua’s attempts to match make her, He Mulan has her hands full. All He Mulan wants to do is protect Hua Mulan’s body till her soul comes back, but fate has other plans…

    Yeah, this is a pretty great book. It's the only one that I've seen try to properly depict the Northern Wei dynasty, which is what a real world Mulan story would have looked like if she was a historical figure. Usually these depictions will show the country as bog standard Chinese society when the real thing is totally different. Word of warning though, it has a lot of historical terms in it so any translator should be prepared to deal with that!
