The year is [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2017]][[labelnote:*]]2020 in the animated adaptation[[/labelnote]]. Sun Haoxuan, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, goes about his peaceful life, observing that everyone, including him, is doing the same thing everyday, and those who change merely replace others. Although he wants a girlfriend, he perceives himself to be inferior and having no redeeming features. Therefore, he contents himself with his normal, repetitive life and comes to the conclusion that life has nothing to look forward to.

That is about to change when his building is overtaken by heavily armed terrorists. They quickly take out police units sent in to get them and demand an artifact/person called the ''Child of Eden''. If the police take their time, they will kill a hostage every ten minutes. Haoxuan turns out to be the first to be shot. Luckily for him, he is saved by a mysterious girl who wears a strange device that resembles a bee's posterior and allows flight, as well as an accessory that resembles a bee's antenna. She turns out to be a new human weapon called a ''Vanguard'', made by putting nanomachines into a human, greatly enhancing his/her physical abilities and reflexes. The girl, Liu Li, quickly suppresses the terrorists and returns to her base.

That's not the end of the two protagonists' relationship. Liu Li turns out to be a Vanguard who's almost at her limit, and she has to take drugs every day to keep herself alive. These drugs are prohibitively expensive however, hence the military generals decide to "let her rest". Her instructor, Colonel Li, objects to this, and begs them to let her to live a normal life for another year like they had promised before. The generals are unwilling to keep their word, since they see her as a mere machine which has outlived its purpose. They're willing to compromise however, by letting her live if Colonel Li assigns her a new mission. The promised normal life is not possible, but Liu Li does not want it anyway; she has never had any conception of a normal life, and her "raison d'etre" has always been to finish a mission. Yet, Colonel Li still tries to give her a normal life, by assigning her to protect Haoxuan, who, like all ordinary high-school students we've seen in anime, turns out to be not as ordinary as he seems, as he appears to be the Child of Eden. Liu Li is hence transferred into Haoxuan's school and acts as a normal student, and so, the manhua's title is finally justified. Sadly for Liu Li however, her normal life turns out to be short-lived, as new enemies have appeared, and they also seem to believe that Haoxuan is the Child of Eden they are looking for.

''Chu Feng: B.E.E.'' (the Chinese title, translated as "young bee"), also known as ''School Shock'', is a Chinese manhua written and drawn by Sun Heng, and completed at twenty-three volumes (with an ongoing FanTranslation). An animated adaption began airing on July 23, 2015 for 6 episodes under its Chinese title. Full episodes are available on the [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgovbMZiNNk781cbdnpLHFXjfgp2sXL1g U17.com official Youtube channel.]]

A Japanese dub premiered on August 15, 2015 starring Creator/ShinnosukeTachibana, Creator/KanaHanazawa, and Creator/FumikoOrikasa as the main characters. The Japanese-dubbed episodes can also be found on U17.com's Youtube channel [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgovbMZiNNk5-Y1UWajBjUntcNhMBlBTf here]].

The animation will have a [[TheMovie movie sequel]] [[http://baike.baidu.com/item/雏蜂/17577828 sometime in 2017.]]
----
!!The work provides examples of:

* AbsurdlySharpBlade : [[spoiler: Bai Hua]], the Mantis Vanguard, sports two of 'em, a large kukri and a arm-mounted one.
** May also be a {{Vibroweapon}}, as it does buzz.
* AccidentalPervert: [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/school_shock/v01/c005/26.html This.]] 'Nuff said.
* ActionGirl: Liu Li is one, and [[spoiler: Bai Hua is the dark counterpart]].
* ActionSurvivor: Haoxuan. Any other ordinary high school student would have died under a terrorist's gun.
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Father To His Girls]]: Colonel Li to Liu Li, up to the point of her only opening up to him and getting jealous of A-Xuan for all the sudden attention he got. [[spoiler: Not much of a shocker, since he is her dad, unbeknownst to her.]]
* {{Ahoge}}: The Spider Vanguard.
* AlliterativeName: Liu Li's name just rolls out of your mouth.
* AerithAndBob: Cyatheaceae, Cecilia, Malick and Alicia, as the story is set in China, or in the case of the latter 3: the friggin' military.
* AndIMustScream: The SpiderTank in the prologue is actually controlled by [[PoweredByAForsakenChild a human brain]] in immeasurable pain, desperately wishing for death. This is only revealed in the manhua; in the animated adaptation it gets unceremoniously blown up without a word.
* AnimalMotif: A bee for Liu Li, a praying mantis for [[spoiler: Bai Hua]], a spider (Cyatheaceae) and three ants (Malick, Alicia, Shao Yu) and the Queen of the Moth, Cecilia.
* [[AntiHero Anti Heroine]]: Liu Li… yeah, sometimes the Mantis Vanguard seems more morally upstanding than her.
* ApocalypseMaiden: Inverted. [[spoiler: A-Xuan ain't a maiden.]] It is also more implied, [[spoiler: for being a possible trigger of WW3 (on the other hand, many treat this as a given), and only if nuclear weapons like the ones in the background that are shown while all this is being explained to Liu Li are used.]]
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Nanomachines make the Vanguards strong.
* ArmCannon: Zhou Zhongrong had an ace up his sleeve.
* ArtificialLimbs: Xiao Jiang has a foot prothesis, Zhongrong has an ArmCannon.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Since her return to the story, Bai Hua has more or less made it her mission to keep an amnesic A-Xuan safe.]]
* AuthorAvatar: White Cat (Sun Heng) and his boss and staff are drawn in the omake section, often making comments on FanArt.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Bai Hua gets both this and HeelFaceTurn]].
* BadassGrandpa: Zhou Zhongrong, who fought in Vietnam when he was seventeen and hasn't stopped fighting since then. Considering the average age of a Vanguard he definitely is a grandpa.
* BandageBabe: Liu Li at one point.
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Liu Li can perform this against the AbsurdlySharpBlade of [[spoiler: Bai Hua]]. Since she does it with only one hand, it results in bleeding.
* BeamSpam: Cecilia's weapon use of choice.
* BerserkButton:
** The Spider Vanguard is very displeased about the loss of her twice licked popsicle.
** Liu Li [[spoiler: kills Bai Hua in a completely enraged state crying, after she mortally wounded Sun Haoxuan.]] Interestingly enough, it didn't give her the usual powerup connected with this trope, but simply resulted in a [[RealityEnsues headshot]], which she could have and would have done anyway.
* BigDamnHeroes:
** Liu Li saves Haoxuan's life during the hostage situation just before his lights get blown out.
** A bit later, when Zhou is holding him hostage again, a military sniper uses [[{{BFG}} an anti-materiel rifle]] to blow half of Zhou's body off right before Zhou puts a bullet in his head.
** [[spoiler: It is subverted with A-Xuan's saving Bai Hua, as both get fatally wounded, and played straight with the arrival of the Marching Ant Squad and the Queen of the Moth.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: Liu Li's power source, the Nanomachines, have become more and more detrimental.
* BloodKnight: Liu Li enjoys a good fight.
* BrainInAJar: The spider tank is controlled/powered by a human brain. Liu Li puts [[DeathSeeker it]] out of its misery.
* BrainsAndBondage: [[spoiler: Wang He has the nick name Prodigy. He is also a masochist and would love to do BDSM with Liu Li.]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Huai Te did this once, explaining and justifying himself directly into the camera.
--> '''Huai Te:''' “Whaat? You think I´m an extremist? How did you reach the same conclusion as the psychologist I recently strangled?“
* TheBrute: Ju Jiang, a giant with a equally huge siberian hat, who cracks Mecha like peanuts with his bear hands. And seemingly stops bullets in mid-air. Doesn't talk much.
* CasanovaWannabe: Wang He.
* ChekhovsGun: Played with. Huai Te first quotes Chekhov's trope naming line, then explains the bomb he apparently placed might as well blow up now following that line of thinking. It doesn`t do that yet. Unless he was speaking in metaphors.
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler: Wang He. He is a TeenGenius and accquaintance of Commander Li and supervises A-Xuan's recovery. Also might be older than he appears.]]
* ChildSoldier: Liu Li, [[spoiler: and Bai Hua]].
* CloseCallHaircut: Zhongrong doesn't quite miss Liu Li, resulting in this trope.
* CompanionCube: B.E.E., Liu Li's propulsion and weapon system, that also provides covering fire, monitoring services and medical equipment. Due to operating mainly over voice command, it at least appears to be one.
* CoolShades: Zhou Zhongrong.
* CrossPoppingVeins: Tells us how much Wang He just fucked up with Liu Li.
* CurbStompBattle: Boy, just look at Liu Li getting trashed by the Spider.
* {{Cyborg}}: There's the question if containing nanomachines makes you an actual cyborg, which then would include any vanguard. Moot point, since Liu Li and [[spoiler: Bai Hua]] have their electronic sensory antennae implanted and Zhou Zhongrong has an ArmCannon.
* DarkActionGirl: [[spoiler: Bai Hua]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: Compare Liu Li in [[http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/SchoolShockVol01Ch002/218833-6.html earlier]] [[http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/SchoolShockVol01Ch002/218833-10.html chap]][[http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/SchoolShockVol01Ch002/218833-11.html ters]] to [[http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/SchoolShock10/226863-14.html this Liu Li]].
* DisappearedDad
* {{Eagleland}}: Flavor 2, America, the International Bully. Comes with war threats as default negotiation tactic.
* {{Expy}}: Liu Li, at the beginning, is an action version of [[ReiAyanamiExpy Rei Ayanami]]. Then there's Alicia. Twin Pigtails. Creepy affection towards her senior whom she calls Onee-sama. Very open displayal of said affection. Being a complete bitch and drama queen about their relationship. This is [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Shirai Kuroko]].
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl: Female Vanguards.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Yin Hai used to be a good guy and saved his friend's daughter… and at one point turned into the mad, homicidal and megalomanical Huai Te]].
* FacelessGoons: The terrorist in the first three chapters all were black skull masks.
* FishOutOfWater: Liu Li in High School. With greetings to [[Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic Sagara Sousuke]].
* FiveRoundsRapid: Seriously, that'll never work.
* FlowerMotifs: Schoolgirl Bai Hua has backgrounds exploding with these.
* FunnyAfro: President Onima.
* GadgeteerGenius: Haoxuan, although he claims himself to be an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent.
* GatlingGood: The SpiderTank deployed by Zhou in the beginning uses a chin-mounted gatling gun as its main weapon.
* GenkiGirl: Alicia.
* GenreSavvy: Liu Li never takes the elevator. In high school, she's [[WrongGenreSavvy not as]] [[FishOutOfWater efficient]].
** Also, Haoxuan. [[spoiler: Naturally, if the school idol confesses to you after speaking with you once, something's quite possibly off.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Alicia. And yes, she is a brat at heart.
* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: The NPSA or National Preservation Special Assault.
* GogglesDoNothing: What's the point of a foot prothesis when you're in a wheel chair?
* GroinAttack: With an improvised weapon, no less. Poor Wang He. Accompanied with a [[SarcasmMode subtle]] VisualPun.
* GunsAkimbo: Animation only: In Episode 2, Liu Li goes to town on the terrorists in the main hall with dual [=P90s=] as opposed to a single P90 and a missile barrage from the manhua.
* {{Gunslinger}}: Liu Li.
* HandCannon: Liu Li uses a Desert Eagle as her sidearm. A single shot from this at center mass is strong enough to kill even terrorists who are wearing heavy body armor.
* HandsomeLech: Malick.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: During the initial terrorist attack at the beginning, Shun is so absorbed in listening to a song in the mall's music store that he is completely oblivious to the carnage and panicking crowd around him. Somewhat justified in that he was also on a floor much higher than where the terrorist attack was taking place.
* HealingFactor: Comes with {{Nanotechnology}}. [[spoiler: A-Xuan doesn't need those though, his healing abilities are better and faster than that.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Bai Hua, after being revived by Huai Te and healed by Wang He.]]
* HostageSituation: You haven't read the summary at the top yet, have you?
* HouseWife: Shao Yu apparently wants to become one (or, to properly quote: "How To Become A Economic Housewife).
* HumongousMecha: Present but not terribly effictive. Well, apart from being effectively {{Mooks}}. Moreover, they aren't that big. The army has quite a lot of them [[spoiler: and sends them along with four vanguards to stop Huai Te and save Ah-Xuan and Liu Li. It makes him retreat.]]
* IAmYourFather: Huai Te tries to invoke this on Liu Li. In a sense, he made what she used to be, so he's half right, but still: [[spoiler: Bullet to the face!]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: Colonel Li gave his daughter to the Chineses military, knowing fully well that she'd become a ChildSoldier and not be regarded as a person by her officers. But if he hadn't, she would have died at 4.]] Also, his superiors understand that sacrifice is a common thing and necessary in the life of a soldier.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: A-Xuan definitely would prefer a life with less fighting, explosions and murder around him. Liu Li zigzags this trope: first of all, her life belongs on the battlefield and in the barracks, which she's pretty much accustomed to by now, thus making that normal for her. She cannot live normal life, since she believes she is only suited to fight. She claims she has to fight [[spoiler: but then admits A-Xuan is a possible escape route from her previous life]].
* IllGirl: Xiao Jiang
* ImportantHaircut : Inverted, Liu Li's hair grows several inches [[spoiler: after Xuan injects her with healing nano-machines, saving her life. Afterwards, she lives with him and their relationship improves slightly.]]
* InSeriesNickname: A-Xuan for Haoxuan. [[spoiler: Prodigy for Wang He.]]
* {{Joshikousei}}: Liu Li and Bai Hua.
* TheKlutz : Our capable Liu Li fails at almost anything non-military related. Ahem… Picasso bee embroidery. Injured fingers. Gadget repair frustration. Completely misunderstanding the situation.
* LadyOfWar: [[spoiler: Bai Hua.]]
* LargeHam: Huai Te, the Snake Professor. [[spoiler: Formerly known as Yin Hai. That guy was very down-to-earth.]]
* LeotardOfPower: Liu Li's first military outfit.
* LightningBruiser: The Mantis Vanguard, even more so than Liu Li.
* LittleMissBadass: Liu Li.
* LivingMacGuffin: [[spoiler: Haoxuan is the Child of Eden]].
* LoveTriangle: Liu Li - A-Xuan - Bai Hua.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Beats a spider tank. Nice job, Liu Li.
* MadScientist : The Snake Professor.
* {{Meganekko}}: Shao Yu.
* MindOverMatter: Ju Jiang. If it isn't supermagnetism that stops the bullets.
* MiniMecha: The SWAT team deploys two of these against the terrorists in the opening. They are no match for the enemy's SpiderTank.
* MissingMom: Died in a plane crash. [[spoiler: It was murder, until it's revealed she shot herself]].
* [[SirSwearsalot Miss Swears-a-lot]]: Cyatheaceae. She likes to drop F-bombs.
* {{Mooks}}: Arab insurgents, terrorists, [[RedshirtArmy soldiers and policemen]].
* MostCommonSuperpower: Huai Te's Vanguard Troops are stecked with muscles and tits. [[spoiler: Even Liu Li post-OP.]]
* MurderousThighs: In Episode 2, after fooling a group of the terrorists with a holographic illusion, she drops down from the roof, swiftly snaps one of their necks with her legs, and puts three bullets in the next guy. And then [[DoubleTap shoots the guy with the broken neck again for good measure.]]
* {{Nanomachines}}: AppliedPhlebotinum.
* NewTransferStudent: Liu Li; [[spoiler: apparently, Bai Hua transferred as well, before the story begins]]
* NiceHat: Ju Jiang's Siberian hat. Andrew King's … THING.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: President [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Onima]].
* NonActionGuy: Haoxuan. Then again...
* NoodleIncident: [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/school_shock/v01/c005/27.html Just what was this Cixi Vocational School Milk Squeezing Incident?]]
* NowLetMeCarryYou: "This time, let me protect you" [[spoiler: Bai Hua to an amnesic Haoxuan.]]
* OccidentalOtaku: Andrew King.
* OfCourseISmoke: Haoxuan fails at smoking at first, but manages to keep it up. Liu Li snarks it'll make him even dumber.
* {{Oneesama}}: The Moth Queen towards at least one of the ant girls.
* OpeningActionSequence: The first scene shows us Liu Li fighting mujahideen somewhere in the Middle East.
* OralFixation: The Spider Vanguard is fond of popsicles.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Haoxuan, or so he claims.
* ParentalAbandonment: A-Xuan, Liu Li, and Bai Hua.
* PeoplePuppet: Liu Li get turned into one (literally by getting attached to wires) for a chapter and remains conscious through out.
* PoliceAreUseless: The terrorists at the beginning repel the cops and their SWAT team real easily, prompting the military to [[OneRiotOneRanger call in Liu Li.]] Averted later as Inspector Chen, who leads the police unit surrounding the mall, [[spoiler:barges in and shoots Zhongrong dead]].
* PrettyFreeloader: Liu Li crashes in at A-Xuan's place.
* PrettyLittleHeadshots: [[spoiler: The way Bai Hua goes down.]]
* PunchAWall: After a discussion with his superiors gone bad, Colonel Li does that. Can be easily mistaken for RageAgainstTheReflection, since he actually hits a window.
* {{Puppetmaster}}: The Spider Vanguard does this with her Wire Apparatus and PeoplePuppets, or…
* RazorFloss, but she thinks it's not as satisfying.
* RapunzelHair: The Queen of the Moth.
* RealityEnsues : So there's this injured girl lying on the street and due to spoileriffic circumstances you have to carry her home. Good thing that all girls are light... not, with this one filled up with lil' buddies called nanomachines, no wonder she's heavy.
** A HostageSituation will always call for sniper support.
** Most people don't look cool with their first cig.
** And major fights downtown attract attention.
** Spraying bullets at a target in a narrow corridor when your team is on both sides will result in you killing your own men with friendly fire.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Guess what this is: http://www.mangafox.com/manga/school_shock/v01/c014.2/14.html.
** Answer: [[spoiler: the EEG of the Child of Eden]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler: Bai Hua's ultimate technique. Also make the suit plugs change to red in an otherwise black and white medium.]]
* {{Revenge}}: One of Huai Te's motivations. As an apparent developer of nanotechnology, he seems to have been mistreated and robbed of his creation.
* RogueAgent: Zhou Zhongrong and his men are all Vietnam veterans striking back at the PLA. No, not THAT UsefulNotes/VietnamWar; we mean [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Paracel_Islands the]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Vietnamese_War war]] that China & Vietnam fought in the 1970s.
* SarcasticClapping: Huai Te's arrival on the battle between Liu Li and [[spoiler: Bai Hua after the latter stabs A-Xuan and is shot by the former for that.]]
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler: A-Xuan stops Liu Li from killing Bai Hua]]. Resulting in impressive backstabbing.
** Also, Zhou Zhongrong inverts this as he grabs Haoxuan's hand to prevent him from falling to a very messy death. And subverts the saving by using him as hostage. This was only in the manhua, though.
* SempaiKohai: Bai Hua - A-Xuan, in that order.
* SensorCharacter : Apparently, Vanguards can sense each other through bio-electrical fluctuations, probably referring to side-effects of the nanomachines.
* SheFu: [[spoiler: Bai Hua]] and Liu Li.
* ShoutOut: A lot.
** Manhua only: The logo Liu Li uploads into the screens of the mall as she takes over the system with B.E.E. is an allusion to ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' and the “laughing man“ symbol.
** Huai Te's eyelid holders are taken from ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.
** ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': IF HE ORDERED YOU TO DIE, WOULD YOU DO IT?
** Liu Li mentions an "interrogation method in a spy film I saw recently" while holding [[GroinAttack a weighted cloth]] before [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 a naked male tied to a chair.]]
** Didn't you see [[VideoGame/ArmyOfTwo Salem and Rios]] working with the terrorists in the first chapter?
** You'd probably see some ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' references in the first few chapters. A ChildSoldier learning to fit in at school. That should give anything away.
** President Omina's a ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' fan by the look of things.
** The United Federation logo seems to be like the ESF's from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''.
** An omake in chapter 14 is based on ''Manga/LuckyStar's'' Lucky Channel.
** Series/KamenRiderDecade's henshin belt can be spotted on Andrew King's waist in chapter 16.
** As well as his ''Manga/KOn'' shirt.
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Series/KamenRider555'', along with what looks like RL pictures on the tv screen.
* SlasherSmile: Huai Te loves this trope.
* SmokingIsCool: Zhou Zhongrong. A-Xuan tries this, but fails at first try.
* SpiderTank: Cause nothing screams overkill like taking hostages with heavy armor.
* StarterVillain: [[spoiler: Bai Hua, [[{{EnforcedTrope}} as enforced by Huai Te]].]]
* StopOrIShootMyself: [[spoiler: Haoxuan does this to help Liu Li escape]].
* {{Stripperific}}: Cyatheceae's outfit.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Liu Li towards Instructor Li, to the point where she gets enthusiastically [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]]. [[spoiler: She gradually opens up to Haoxuan as well.]]
* SuperSoldier : What the Vanguards basically are, if you're willing to consider them human and not just a mere weapon. Deconstructed, since they aren't long-lived (Liu Li has to face her death in about a year) and very expensive to maintain, thus a liability, though the earlier models still have it better.
* TeenGenius: [[spoiler: Wang He.]]
* TooKinkyToTorture : As Haoxuan says, sympathy is wasted on Wang He.
* {{Tsundere}}: Liu Li
* TruthInTelevision: At the end of the prologue, Liu Li kills the terrorists holding Xuan hostage with her P90 submachinegun. The P90's bullets [[ArmorIsUseless go right through the terrorists' body armor]] as if it is tissue paper. The military-grade [=SS190=] load of the 5.7x28mm round the P90 uses [[http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2013/10/16/5-7x28mm-body-armor/ is capable of doing this.]]
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Although it's 2017, the only new thing seems to be only related to the military. The cartoon moves the date a little further back to 2020.
* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler: Bai Hua stabs A-Xuan after he saved her friggin' life]]. The "sorry" may have been sarcastic (or not).
** Though what is said after that heavily indicates that it was thought of as a favor.
*** [[spoiler: Averted later on, however, as [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone something broke]] inside Bai Hua soon after she did this, leading to her becoming TheAtoner after her revival.]]
* UnsoundEffect: Heal, heal.
* TheVoiceless: Ju Jiang.
* WaveMotionGun: Cecilia's weapon of choice.
* {{Webcomic}}: School Shock is definitely a manhua, but it's still originally published online.
* WaifFu: Liu Li; [[spoiler: to a lesser degree, Bai Hua, since she's older than Liu Li and prefers to dice enemies rather than kicking their asses.]]
* WingdingEyes: Liu Li sports this, surprisingly, as well as her superior officer.
* TheWorfEffect: Mechas provide this.
* WorthyOpponent: Liu Li to Zhou. [[spoiler: Bai Hua]] to Liu Li.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Somebody should have told Liu Li that school boys who stalk you are interested in your body, not your organization.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Liu is silver-haired, matching her ReiAyanamiExpy status.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Liu Li.
