Novel adaptation comes to Japanese television this January
Chinese novel Mo Dao Zu Shi made its way from text to anime in China, and Japan is about to get a taste of the demonic tale!
A new website and Twitter account went up for the Japanese broadcast of the series, giving a preview of what's to come. The series follows Wei Wuxian, one of many practicioners attempting to cultivate a path to immortality. 13 years after his death, Wei Wuxian — who cultivated the controversial Demonic Path — he is summoned into a new body and met by fellow cultivator Lan Wangji. The two will join forces to solve a mystery that will shed light on Wei Wuxian's own past.
Ryohei Kimura (Satoru Nishimura in Natsume Yujin-Cho) will voice the resurrected Wei Wuxian, and Shinnosuke Tachibana (Peroroncino in Overlord) as Lan Wangji. Listen to them in the newly-dubbed trailer:
Mo Dao Zu Shi premieres on WOWOW, TOKYO-MX, and BS-11 in January 2021.
