Beautiful animation with visually aesthetic visuals and utilization of ancient brush painting are the highlight of Fog Hill of the Five Elements or also known as Wu Shan Wu Xing (雾山五行) – one of my most highly anticipated Chinese anime for so long. This enthralling upcoming Chinese anime this 2020 is a top-notch production from China showcasing and proving that Chinese animators could compete internationally.
[Update: January 4, 2020]: A new promotional video for Fog Hill of the Five Elements had been released by studio SAMSARA as seen below:

The announcement about Fog Hill of the Five Elements had been unveiled in 2017 as it was originally released as a 5-minute long short animation from Lin Hun. The animator behind the infamous 岁城璃心(Kui Yu Chou Yuan) which aired in 2016. If you had tried to search for keywords CHINESE ANIME in YouTube, you might come across with the video Epic Martial Arts Anime Trailer – that’s the first time that I encountered Kui Yu Chou Yuan, a magnificent piece of art with breathtaking fight scenes, captivating visuals, and pretty decent storytelling. With that being said, Fog Hill of the Five Elements is an ambitious project that may surpass Kui Yu Chou Yuan with its dazzling animation, graphics which really takes a lot of effort to do just by seeing the quality of its trailer and promotional video.
Over the span of 2 years, while the anime is in the making, the creator team drop some surprises to its avid fans such as the new trailer which had been uploaded on YouTube last May 21, 2018.
