Hey guys, I am back for another list of top series made by a Chinese anime studio and after listing my top 10 Chinese anime by Haoliners Animation League a few weeks ago, this time, I’ll be giving you my top 10 Chinese anime by Big Firebird Cultural Media Animation which had been one of my new favorites.
Simply known as Big Firebird Animation, the Chinese anime studio is among those that donghua fans outside of China might be quite familiar with. Most of their works were popular with non-Chinese fans and they had similar style and themes with that anime from Japan. Many anime fans have mistaken some of their works to be anime from Japan. But who can blame the fans, some Big Firebird Animation works had been dubbed in Japanese and they’d been adapted from popular manhua and video games that many non-Chinese fans might have seen or read online.
The studio is known for having a deep 2-dimensional animation style. It has more than 10 years of experience in animation and has been producing donghua in ONA format based on various manhua and other source materials. They collaborated with several well-known domestic companies such as Tencent Comics & Animation, iQIYI, Youku, Zulong Entertainment, and Golden Eagle Cartoon.
In line with this. we had listed 10 Chinese anime from Big Firebird Cultural Media that fans can check as shown below.
