CHINESE TITLE花千骨 aka Hua Qiangu aka the name of the heroine aka errr... Flowers Of A Thousand Bones? Blossoming Thousand Bones? Like very morbid title?
NO. OF EPISODES54 episodes/ OMG.SYNOPSISSee here. But seriously, this is a super tragic story of teaching us when to not fall in love. For example, never fall for the girl who is destined to destroy you or rather be your "broomstick". As the girl, never fall for a man in a position of being righteous and will destroy you being the demon incarnate. In short, this is a tragedy but the writer wrote too many alternate endings. Sometimes, I suppose the author must learn to let go. Look at JK Rowling and how she lets her love go.RELEASED IN2015CAST-CHARACTERSWallace Huo (霍建华) as Bai Zihua (白子画) and Mo Bingxian (墨冰仙)

WHERE TO WATCH
Showing 2 episodes per week, if you're in China, switch on the TV. But we are not in China, and so where do you watch this highly anticipated series? Not TVB! TVB is busy with bosoms.
RAW VERSION IN YOUTUBE
Plenty. Just google the name and voila!
FAN SUB ENGLISH VERSION
Video quality is ok. This is a fan community subbing effort and from what I can see, decent effort, not bad for being so fast, usually accorded to K and J-dramas.
But weird is ep 4 looks like ep 3 contents so frankly I am confused.(I got confused because in Youtube somehow ep 5 became ep 4!!). Watch here, Click Play Now, click the episode no. Another at youtube with same Eng sub. Better follow this because every week 2 episodes and so this one is consistent.
Mandarin, dubbed for most actors with dubbing voice and NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES (not official subtitles) but has Chinese subtitles.
CURRENT LATEST EPISODE AIRED

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND THE MOST HEARTBREAKING NEWS (UPDATED)
The most beautiful... fan art. I can't even begin to describe them so I will just repost and you will immediately recognise who is who. I got this from Facebook so I have no idea who is the artiste but these are just jaw droppingly beautiful.
You know I have been following the uncut version which is internet version and although Episode 20 is aired, that episode has yet to be uploaded to Youtube for reasons unknown. Viki's translation is based on uncut version and so it has stopped at ep 19 too. I may have to follow the Hunan TV version which is also at episode 20 BUT about half hour faster. I checked. Events in Hunan Episode 18 halfway is where the uncut version stopped at Episode 18. I haven't seen episode 19 uncut yet so I am still wondering should I or shouldn't I, after all only half hour difference but it could add up to a lot. I feel the uncut version's pace is just great so I am afraid the Hunan TV version may be a bit too fast.
I am waiting, hoping uncut version will continue. Feeling is China is clamping down but it doesn't seem to be the case because the whole page would be closed down but it isn't. So maybe there is some technical difficulties. I am on breaking point; so miss this series but have got to exercise restrain and patience like our favourite Shifu!
Let's wait a day or two. Good news is viki's subtitle translation is catching up.
Maybe not so heart breaking news. Ep 20 uncut version is NOT released yet so it means delay is at the errrr broadcast side. Let's wait until the end of this week. Great news; Viki has caught up to Ep 19 even if the earlier episodes, some are still 95% completed.
