Reading Status: Almost read finished, just didn’t finish the last few chapters but I kind of know the ending
There can be quite a lot of angst at the start but the backstories are gradually revealed and the characters realised the truth. What is left would be them overcoming the difficulties together and finally end up as one. There are some elements of gender-bender in this, about a female disguising as a male general. You could try reading if you like such motifs.
Adaptations:Not that I know of
