Xie Wang Zhui Qi Overview
Xie Wang Zhui Qi or simply known as The Demonic King Who Chases His Wife is one of the foremost romance Chinese anime in recent years and was often listed along with other popular donghua in the genres such as Psychic Princess, The Memory of Changán, Adorable Food Goddess, and No Doubt in Us. However, it is not only a rom-com story but also an isekai, yes it is a story where the main character was transmigrated from the modern world to a fantasy-like setting in Ancient China where magic does exist. The series is based on a manhua of the same title but is also known as King of Jin in Tang Dynasty by author Xiaonuan Su.
To freshen up everyone’s memory about its story, here’s the synopsis of The Demonic King Who Chases His Wife:
She, a renowned assassin of the 21st century, actually crossed over to another world to become Su Manor’s most useless good-for-nothing Fourth Miss. He, Jin Empire’s imperial highness, was an emotionless overbearing demonic tyrant with unrivaled talent. Everyone knew that she was idiotic and good-for-nothing and bullied her as they pleased. But only he, the overbearing tyrant with the discerning eye, wouldn’t let go of her even if his life depended on it. For the time being, let’s just see how the stubborn versus stubborn clash and play out in this good show of the chaser and the chased. (Source: Official Webnovel)
The donghua first aired on January 24, 2019, then followed by a second season which aired on December 10, 2020. It is a combination of the various genre of Chinese animation ranging from cultivation (xinxia), transmigration, romance and comedy, dark-themed drama, historical setting, and a whole lot more which makes it one of the most popular donghua to non-Chinese viewers.
