Is there a possibility of being able to watch some of the new Chinese anime? They used to suck when they first started showing up a few years ago, but they have gotten very good. Quanzhi Gaoshou (King's Avatar) Quanzhi Fashi (Full time Magician) by bilibili are really good finished anime. Then there are also some not so polished ones like Yaoshenji (Tales Of Demons and Gods) but they are still pretty awesome. Do you think these titles would once be available on crunchyroll?

If you mean directly from China with Chinese voices, I guess it's possible but I don't think there are any at the moment. Several shows that originally aired in China were adapted to Japanese, and from there came to Crunchyroll with Japanese audio. Mostly Haoliners shows.

Silver Guardian, Fox Spirit Matchmaker, Evil or Live were originally Chinese I believe.

Nah, but I saw king's avatar on youtube, and it was damned good. If ya got legit sources, I'd love them.

(the youtube source was tencent's own channel, whom I believe was the company producing it. Twas legit stuff..)

^ ^ OP song for the Chinese version is awesome.


CR occasionally airs Japanese adaptations. The two Tencent titles you mention were both produced by Penguin Pictures, which doesn't have a Japanese studio. Quan Zhi Gao Shou is getting a second season; zero chance it'll be in Japanese. Quanzhi Fashi's season 1 was good; however, imo season 2 was a disaster. Hope this isn't representative of Penguin's animation future. They're a young division of Tencent Pictures, but solid financial backing should've covered the resources necessary to make that second season better than it was.

Ling Qi (a.k.a., Spiritpact) is a Japanese adaptation currently available on CR. http://www.crunchyroll.com/spiritpact

Chinese & South Korean webtoons completely overtook manga in popularity last year, so I'm pretty interested to see their anime as well. Sofar the only nonJapanese animes I've seen are Bastof Syndrome/ Bastof Lemon, & the Noblesse OAV. I have no idea if the upcomming Chinese movie for 19 Days will be animated or live action.

Do you remember the source for the 19 Days movie announcement?
