However, there are tons of conspiracies in this donghua and that’s what we ought to discover as we follow their story altogether.

For those avid fans of the series who also wish to learn or discover more donghua and anime like Cang Lan Jue, here are some special recommendations from us, as we listed our top picks here for your reference.
I Can Only Betray Earth!
Leading the list is a Chinese anime called I Can Only Betray Earth! (Zhihao Beipan Diqiule) which aired in 2021 from iQIYI. It was a romance and comedy donghua which revolves between an ordinary girl and an alien who abducted her.
Ah! My Goddess
Next is a rather classic Japanese anime from the early 2000s, Ah! My Goddess tells the story of a human boy and the goddess he brought home. Thankfully, our goddess is no Aqua from KonoSuba, but a delicate and charming anime girl whom we all know by the name of Belldandy. The anime explores their influence on one another and how it helps them to become a better version of themselves and the people around them.
When I heard that Cang Lan Jue has body-swapping elements, then the first donghua that comes into my mind is the hilarious body-switching romance comedy series No Doubt In Us. While Cang Lan Jue has two opposing hearts of different races switched bodies, No Doubt In Us gives us an emperor and his empress who had a rough and cold relationship. But since they unexpectedly switched their roles and bodies, they eventually learn to embrace the side of one another that they’re not familiar with.
