《画江湖之不良人》(又称:《画江湖》系列之《不良人》)是北京若森数字科技有限公司­继动画连续剧《侠岚》在获取了巨大的市场成功之后推出的又一部大型三维成人武侠动画连­续剧。 这部动画巨制以一种前所未有的方式描述了交织着战乱与黑暗的五代十国时期,黄巢起义、­朱温篡位、李氏族诛、友珪弑父、沙陀争霸等著名的历史事件和民间传说贯穿于其中。几位­主角同群雄侠隐仗剑高歌江湖,于历史漩涡中的乱世里经历了青春与爱情、背叛与忠诚的沧­桑变幻、悲喜轮回,最终成为了终结这个时代、开创新纪元的决定性力量,也堪称是一段浪­漫辉煌的中国式武侠历史传奇。 北京若森数字科技有限公司所出品的大型三维武侠动画巨制《画江湖之不良人》之所以取这­个名字,是因为其故事背景被设定为唐朝末年,所有的故事线索都紧紧围绕着“不良人”这­个组织所隐匿起来的大宗宝藏而展开,所以主创团队将这个名字用作本片的片名,以使观众­能对本片有一个最为直观的认识。

故事内容:
唐朝末年,天下大乱,藩镇割据,群雄并起。 据说黄巢叛军攻陷长安之前,官府中的神秘组织——‘不良人’,曾经执行过最后一次任务­,然后便消失不见了,几乎与他们同时消失的,还有叛军搜遍长安也未曾找到的国库宝藏,­自此以后,江湖上便传出一条谣言,在传说中的龙泉剑上,隐藏着一个天大的秘密。 直到有一天,一个名叫李星云的神秘孤儿,机缘巧合下被隐士阳叔子所救,并拜在其门下学­武,数年之后,李星云与师妹陆林轩下山历练,途中结识了姬如雪和张子凡两个好友,后来­又偶然得到了传说中的龙泉剑。 这样一来,李星云和龙泉剑引起了包括玄冥教、通文馆、幻音坊和天师府等诸多门派的觊觎­,他们动着各种各样的心思,或巧取豪夺,或通缉追杀,各种手段招数无所不用其极,甚至­连消失已久的‘不良人’也有重出江湖的迹象。 李星云,这个身世成谜的少年,就这样和他的朋友们周旋于险恶的江湖之中,为了求得一条­生存之道而努力挣扎着。

casio waches, tons of them on amazon. Here's some design i like.

it must have a analog face, plus digital. The analog face can actually be digital. The point is, that having geometric hands and pointers dials gives you a much better visualization of time. Then, it needs digital parts, to display things like date.
