Welcome sevenkingdoms

I like the animation and narration style (Cao Cao is adorable as a child, I like what you did with Liu Bei), I like that you highlight figures like Huangfu Song who get overlooked and one of reasons He Jin couldn't just use miliatry to overthrow eunuchs, the full horror of Yuan Shao's massacre, try to cover and show perspectives people wouldn't have heard of.

I think your being harsh on the eunuchs there, there a few errors in there and not sure were Yuan Shao's doubtful fatherhood comes from? Dowager He had a few reasons (think it was relatives that got bribed but even they had reasons) to back eunuchs over the gentry to be fair to her.

You mention scholars and so on but they don't seem to match up with the ones I'm aware of so wondering whose work you are thinking of?
“You, are a rebellious son who abandoned his father. You are a cruel brigand who murdered his lord. How can Heaven and Earth put up with you for long? And unless you die soon, how can you face the sight of men?”
