The next big thing from B.CMAY Pictures and Bilibili is finally here, Shi Kong Zhi Xi, or what some fans called the Time and Space Gap donghua will premiere this April as part of the spring lineup from Bilibili. Shi Kong Zhi Xi had been among the most anticipated donghua by many viewers since its first announcement in 2020 and despite all the production delays, it’s finally here and we are all excited for this because some familiar names are working behind this series.
Shi Kong Zhi Xi Donghua Announcement
The donghua had been announced during the 2020 Bilibili Conference and had been expected by many to be released in 2021. However, it seems there had been production delays, thus, it is only until 2022 that Shi Kong Zhi Xi is finally getting its premiere.
It was adapted from a video game of the same title and follows an exciting and action-packed story in which the main characters had to bravely fight monsters from another world that appear through a rift in time and space. Therefore, it feels like having that isekai-ish mood and at the same time quite similar to the Japanese anime GATE in some aspects.
