An official website has launched and announced that a web novel from China Yichang Shengwu Jianwenlu (The Record of Unusual Creatures) will get animation adaptation. The animation will be a collaboration between MAGES. and bilibili, and is planned to stream on bilibili this spring while it will broadcast on Japanese TV this year under the title Ijou Seibutsu Kenbunroku, the Japanese pronunciation of the original title.

Yoshihito is a 23 years old jobless and no girlfriend living in the village countryside of somewhere north. In order to make a living, he decided to empty a room of his house. The first person who decides to live there is a bit silly, tomboyish girl Lili. While directing her to check on the environment she is about to stay, they were attacked by a vampire called Vivian. Then he realized that Lili is not a human but a werewolf. After seeing both of the creatures fighting over silly matters, the three ended up living together. Yoshihito then was suddenly scouted by an empire maintaining the order of multiverse, and became an examiner in training. He became an investigator whose job is to welcome those abnormal livings and maintain them. While Yoshihito wonders between the world he lives and other dimensions with those abnormal living civilians, he gets to know various culture, solving the mysteries and cases around the universe.

Chinese harem anime? Nope, nope, and nope.

Dusk Diver might make a good anime as it's very reminiscent of Tokyo Xanadu, but that's Taiwanese.

Somehow this reminds me of both Rokujouma no Shinryakusha and Outbreak company.

I'm on board, though I don't trust this director. Hoping for like a harem/ecchi version of Shiyan Pin Jiating, but that's probably getting my hopes up too high.

Well, if you guys keep pirating anime, China will takeover Japanese anime while your favorite won't get sequel. Just a matter of time I guess.

Web Novel. Only thing more low-hanging fruit than most Light Novels.
Protag is jobless and no girlfriend adult. Aka, insert for losers.
Will probably have horrid animation, like any literal chinese cartoon I saw who is not The King's Avatar (who itself is very good, actually).
Plot description seems like a fanfic I would have written in my later 10's, after reading some Marvel megasaga from that hack Bendis, and then watched some 12-episodes harem, and mixed both.

Pass. Good luck for those who stay.

Oh God, not another Shiyan Pin Jiating (or the Frankenstein Family) again...

I'd admit that the Chinese media has good stories, but otherwise, hard pass.

That series actually was decent, this one will fall in line or be even worse.

I think at most this will serve as just something I'll watch for fun. Though the director is kinda skeptical... I won't deny that.

It seems cast is japanese? That fixes my only problem with chinese anime.
Premise doesn't sound bad. As long as it's SoL and not some annoying drama, I'll probably enjoy it.

@Terkhev It is listing Japanese cast because it's for the Japanese TV broadcast. I think streaming ver. via bilibili is Chinese.

It's fine to not be interested in Chinese media but to use a racist slur is pretty harsh. Especially when the number of Chinese anime fans on this site are growing. One of the reasons I got into anime is because I love learning about other cultures.
