Tan Jiu Releases Tamen De Gushi Art Inspired by Overwatch’s Lunar New Year Skins

Tamen De Gushi (Their Story) still remains one of the most popular ongoing GL webtoons to date. Its creator Tan Jiu has been releasing a lot of art about the characters aside from the usual webtoon chapters which gives more reasons for the fans to be hyped.

Recently, the artist released a few art on their blog featuring our favorite characters from the series in the Lunar New Year Skins of Blizzard’s popular online game Overwatch. If you’re a fan of both, then this is a double thumbs up!


Qiu Tong as Tracer

Qiu Tong in Tracer’s Lunar New Year skin fits her cuteness so much. Makes your heart felt like you’ve been hit by a Pulse Bomb!

Sun Jing as Reaper

There are no words. Badass Sun Jing fits well as a Badass Reaper. Ready to sweep your heart out like a Death Blossom!

Qi Fang as Hanzo

Our favorite mophead Qi Fang as Hanzo would be quite interesting. He is sure to take out everyone that stand in his way with one swift of his Dragonstrike.

Mo Xiaonan as Ashe

Ashe is the recently added character into the roster of Overwatch‘s playable characters. Mo Xiaonan as Ashe is a mix of coolest and cuteness ready to shoot you from afar.

As always, you can never ignore Tan Jiu’s awesome art! This set is just awesome!

[Update] We Might Not be Able to See or Read Chinese-Made GL Works Anymore

Note: The article is updated with additional information as of November 1:24pm GMT+8. Those underlined are the updated statements.

This is a bit alarming. Worse, there is a chance that we might won’t be able to see GL artwork and webtoons from Chinese artists and writers and related literature in the future. 


Effective December 1, the Chinese Government will be handing out a huge reward of 600,000 RMB to individuals who will be reporting media under pornography. GL and BL categories might be affected unless it has reached into a degree that the contents of the works contain themes that is considered as inappropriate. 

This draw a huge outcry to fans especially those who loyally follow artists and writers who create related content. Artists urged online users not to re-upload and share their works on the following Chinese social media platforms Weibo and Lofter in order to protect them.

Last year, a woman using the pen name Tianyi was arrested by authorities and was given a 10-year and six months sentence for creating and selling her homoerotic book Occupy in 2017. The novel tells the story about an intimate sexual relationship between a male student and a male teacher.

Tianyi admitted to writing the story and sold copies online via the website Taobao. She promoted her work through the Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Pornography is illegal in China and the government is doing all they can to take down those who create and distribute such media.

In the case of Chinese GL works, some of the popular ones are Tamen De Gushi by Tan Jiu and Dear L by Wu Bao.  Note that the mentioned works might not be affected on this as this do not really show pornography.  There’s still hope after all.

To give you a better understanding of the situation, here is a translation of the situation:


Tamen De Gushi was published in a Chinese language physical book titled SQ: Begin with Your Name! released on October 5, 2015. It contained some insert art and the entire chapters from 1 to 141.

Note: While some of the information still requires confirmation, The Lily Cat will continue to monitor and provide updates regarding this. You may follow the Facebook Page or check back here again for the recent updates.
