The Chinese anime 2020 summer lineup is finally here and one of the donghua that I’ve been seriously looking forward to watch this month is Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan or also known as A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality. We had listed it as one of the top upcoming Chinese anime of 2020 and among the most anticipated xianxia or cultivation donghua of the year.
Yes, Fanxren Xiu Xian Chuan is a xianxia story, and based on its available trailers and promotional videos, it’s gonna be an exciting experience with beautiful 3DCG animation, awesome character designs, breathtaking visuals, and an interesting story to follow. In this post, I would like to share some important things that we need to know first about the upcoming Chinese anime.
A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality Overview
The Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan or A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality anime is based on a popular xianxia novel of the same title. The web novel was written by author Wang Yu and was first published in 2008. It has a total of 2446 chapters and could be read online at the following publisher websites:
- Original Publisher: Qidian
- English Publisher: Wuxiaworld
A poor and ordinary boy from a village joins a minor sect in Jiang Hu and becomes an Unofficial Disciple by chance. How will Han Li, a commoner by birth, establish a foothold for himself in his sect? With his mediocre aptitude, he must successfully traverse the treacherous path of cultivation and avoid the notice of those who may do him harm. This is a story of an ordinary mortal who, against all odds, clashes with devilish demons and ancient celestials in order to find his own path towards immortality.
Release Date & Production
Now, everyone might be asking, when is the release of Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan? Well, we didn’t really need to wait that long since A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality will be released on July 25, 2020.
The donghua had been listed as part of bilibili’s 2020 Chinese anime lineup and is currently one that I am so hyped to watch. Yes, there is plenty of good donghua from bilibili’s lineup this year but only a few really managed to captivate me. All Saints Street anime series had been an adorable ride, I am craving to see some more shows that will give me the excitement that I am looking for and I wish Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan will do that. A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality is listed with 16 episodes according to AniList. Animation studio Original Force animated the upcoming donghua with bilibili and China Literature producing it.

Hi, A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality are currently airing its 3rd batch of episodes. Currently, around 22nd or 23rd episode is releasing.
There are no specific website that tackles all Chinese anime contents and updates but some discord server that you can check are from Guodong Subs: https://discord.gg/4TB6Uqb and from Donghua Reviews: https://discord.com/invite/DeEXwe3
Hey, Thanks for the reply and info but, I’m still confused cause, I think “A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality” split the ONE SEASON in two small seasons as S1-8ep and S2-9ep (total 17ep) and their is one special story which has 4 parts so total number of episodes are 21 ! So, can you please tell me which one 1st batch, 2nd batch and 3rd batch? also, is “A Record of a Mortals Journey to Immortality” is still airing or the special story episode which is 18-21ep are the current final final episodes for the series? Plus, where are the 22nd and 23rd episodes?
