Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You Season 2 (The Memory of Chang’an) Release & Updates

The Memory of Chang’an or Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You Season 2 has been announced in December 2020 but we only got some more specific news today about it which includes its release date, new key visual, and a teaser video. We are all excited about this, after all, the first season had ended in such a cliffhanger and I thought that many of us might have been thinking or afraid that it might follow the footstep of Psychic Princess (Tong Ling Fei). Fortunately, such is not the case here.

Therefore, I would like to share updates about Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You Season 2 in this post and let’s start with its release date and new teaser trailer.

 

 

Release Date & Teaser Trailer

In the latest announcement posted on the Weibo account of the series, Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You Season 2 release date is scheduled on April 15, 2021.

The newly released teaser trailer for the donghua was even more exciting. It still has the same and usual vivid and radiant vibes in its animation, yet what truly captures our attention is the newly introduced characters. We don’t know who they are yet but it seems like they will play some important roles for the story to develop and they might even put Mingyue and Li Qiang’s marriage life on a rocky stage. While I am also wishing to see further development on their relationship.

The announcement was also accompanied by a new key visual for the series as shown below.

One of the Chinese anime or donghua that many of us had adored from 2020 is Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You. It first premiered on October 28, 2020, and ended last January 6, 2021. It is a joined collaboration between Tencent Comics & Animation and bilibili while studio Lingsanwu took charge of its animation.

The donghua was adapted from a popular shoujo manhua titled Wang Ye Buyao A (Please Don’t, My Prince) or Prince. Don’t Do This! which was written by author Dong Man Tan. The first season of the donghua adaptation has run for a total of 12 episodes with a 16-minute length each.

For readers who can’t read Chinese, the manhua is also available on Zinmanga, mangajar, manhuascan, and topmanhua; just search for Prince, Don’t Do This as its title.

If you haven’t seen the series yet, I am urging you to watch it before the premiere of Shi Yi Changan: Mingyue Ji Shi You Season 2. You may also want to check some similar donghua such as Psychic Princess, The Demonic King Who Chases His Wife, Immemorial Love For You, and Adorable Food Goddess. The series touches other genres aside from romance and that includes historical, action, and politics which will bring us to an exciting adventure and conspiracy in the imperial court of Ancient China.
