In this section, I shall answer the following questions: What is Wings of the World all about, its story, world setting, and does it reflect some real events in world history? Wings of the World is set in the 17th century, specifically at 1633 where most of the major power (nations) at that time was in constant warfare in order to acquired land – that’s where Philippines enter in the story on which all countries in the world built Thousands-Nation City there as it was the place where the first communication and collision between the East and West took place. This cliché could be traced back to 17th century where Philippines had been occupied by the Spanish Empire in the real world history, though encounters and trades with the Chinese and even Indians in the Philippines took place earlier than this period.
1663 Common Era, the youngest leader of the Ming dynasty’s navy Lu Changfeng is to escort an official to capture criminals but was attacked by a ghost fleet and sea beasts, causing the entire envoy to be sunk. Lu Changfeng was saved by a mysterious girl from the ocean bottom and followed her to the international center of commerce of the Age of Sail: Luzon. At the time, over 70% of the Ming dynasty’s silver was obtained from Luzon, and this tiny island determined the fate of several nations. Spanish settlers cruelly ruled, and people of all walks of life, under the guidance of Song Yingxing, constructed the international finance center: the Kingdom of Wan. Despite disagreements with Song Yingxing, Lu Changfeng still chose to join Song’s team: 天工, participating in the struggle against Spanish settlers with others. Both factions used bleeding-edge technological inventions in their battle. To resist the enemy genius Vesalius‘s weapon, Song Yingxing manipulates Lu Changfeng, bringing out his days fighting Vesalius in Korea, etc.
I think this is one of the questions that truly matter here. As of now, Wings of the Worldanime could be watched in Bilibili upon its release on September 23 but this is in Chinese dubbed. I’ll share a link towards the streaming page of the anime in this section of the post once its available at Bilibili.
