Hey guys, the winter 2019 anime lineup is almost over and on a different side of the industry, we are taking a peek at Chinese animation. Which anime from China captured our hearts this season and which one definitely deserves more viewers and praise.
The Demonic King Chases His Wife
Next, we have Tong Ling Fei or Psychic Princess. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of this anime but it’s actually our most popular post here at Yu Alexius Anime Portal. Just like Xie Wang Zhui Qi, Psychic Princess is a historical comedy anime with almost the same conditions on its plot. A royal prince and a high ranking official daughter, Psychic Princess sure offer us an unconventional romance story between two characters with differences. That’s actually a pretty cliche plot which is rampant in other stories but quality-wise – the animation is quite good with really funny and fulfilling storytelling. Psychic Princess is brought to us by Chinese giants Tencent Animation & Comics, and Haoliners Animation League.
[Update: July 8, 2020] While fans are avidly waiting for Psychic Princess Season 2, a short-drama adaptation for the anime has been released and is now available on YouTube. Furthermore, the short-drama also gets a 2nd season which is slated for release on July 12, 2020.
Adorable Food Goddess
Snow Eagle Lord
Alright, I just mentioned Battle through the Heavens earlier and it’s actually coming back this year but no specific date yet had been revealed. However, we have Martial Universe this winter and it’s the anime adaptation of Martial Universe novel which is the first part of the same trilogy where Battle through the Heavens is also included. We actually had a live-action adaptation of Martial Universe too last year starring Yang Yang (who’ll play Ye Xiu in the upcoming The King’s Avatar live action drama or also known as Full-Time Master this year). The anime is a great action-adventure series to follow with the same cliche stuff as BTTH but on a different note. One thing is sure though, Martial Universe is definitely an overpowering story to follow. The anime is produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures, China Literature Limited, and animated by Shanghai Motion Magic.
Soul Land II
Great Warrior Wall
I wasn’t able to watch this one yet but after reading some reviews and feedback I think Great Warrior Wall is a well-animated and good anime to follow this year. I have not much to say about Great Warrior Wall at the moment but looking through some video clips I believe it’s really good.
Fox Spirit Matchmaker 7th Season
Bai She: Yuan Qi – This one is a masterpiece especially with how awesome and majestic the animation was, I seriously fell in love with White Snake. It is one of my most recommended Chinese anime so far, and currently my 2nd favorite Chinese anime movies behind Big Fish & Begonia.
