(sorry I don’t understand Cantonese, so I can only translate based on what other people report on this interview)

In the above screenshot, the pertinent information are:
* there have been correct guesses of who the Eighth is in the fandom
* Seventh is only skimming the top at Red Cliff
* Fifth is about to show what he’s made of
* important female character to appear after Red Cliff

In the baidu threads, a few comments may be summarizing the interview:
* Mr. Chen appears to be conflicted about some audience guessing the Eighth’s identity correctly (?), as he doesn’t want to make it so easy, and he may have backup plans (?)
* Zhao Yun will attack the four southern commanderies(?) after Red Cliff.
* Mrs. Zhao will appear and be important? (not sure)
* Zhou Yu has always been the lead at Red Cliff, more scenes to come; Mr. Chen says Zhou Yu always trumps Seventh in strategy and tactics of war.
* the rumor of interested director to turn Ravages into a movie may not be pure rumor?
* Wei Yan will not have as much focused/impactful portrayal as in Unhuman/Inhuman (Chen’s debut graphic novel).
* Zhang Liao is still living in Lü Bu’s shadows; he will come into his own at Hefei.
* Zhou Tai of the Wu Kingdom is a tough nut too.
* Zhang He is among the best; he will be a pillar of the later Wei Kingdom
* After Red Cliff, the next generation of Handicapped Warriors (like Wang Shaung, son of Wang Gang) will appear.
* The story will delve more into “Eight Eccentrics” (I decided to change wording from “Freaks” to “Eccentrics”) once the focuses is on Five Pecks of Rice.
* Liu Shan is a wise ruler (not sure)
* Chen Mou mostly comes up with ideas on his own
* maybe he’ll get to draw Meng Huo by the time his audience’s children grow up
* Xiao Meng will reappear through countless (?) flashbacks
* Ma Chao will reappear soon
* Tian Feng was purposely turned into a bit player

  1. >* important female character to appear after Red Cliff
    >* Mrs. Zhao will appear and be important?
    Wait, what Zhao?
    Are they talking about Zhao Ang’s wife, Zhao Yun or someone else?
    I would really like to see Wang Yi.
    > * the rumor of interested director to turn Ravages into a movie may not be pure rumor?
    As bad as it could turn out to be it would still gives some more exposure to the series, I really want to see this happening.

    • Apparently they are saying it’s Zhao Yun’s wife. I cannot confirm the exact wording, only what the posters say.

      Hehe. All the “female” characters will all look the same, just like in the comic. XD
