You're a fucking moron. No offence but it's true.

See how that works?


Mandarin sounds ridiculous and you are a pathetic specimen that gets sore in the rectum area from reading text on the internet kys pls.


Nope, you sound ridiculous when you:

(a) make a completely subjective statement and then claim "it's true"; and
(b) make a blatantly offensive statement and then absurdly say, "no offence."

You must be like, 10 years old or retarded. Done with you.

wasn't it possible to change the names into something more tuneful? Xu Baobao, Zhang Chulan, Zhang Lingyu, ....horrible

tbh, I'm not excited for this one but I think it's great that the Chinese are producing more anime. If they someday make a Nirvana in Fire - anime version.... wohoooo that would be amazing. Or if they make an anime of Song of the Long March *-* one can only dream I guess..

Sounds interesting. Chinese-Japanese Animation? watashi kininarimasu

I'm always in for zombies stories so why not. I just hope this will be better than Chu Feng BEE with enough episodes to give us a real plot and not something rushed and cliché.

Synopsis sounds generic, except Chinese zombies/jiangshi.
Character design looks pleasant tho.
Haoliners again, haven't finished Chu Feng but that looked ok.
At least will watch for Hayami, Hikasa & Toriumi.

not only is it a manhua, but it's a webcomic as well? this just too awesome! finally, 2016 is the starting step to more webtoons/comic attention!!
this could definitely mean adaptations of more in the future! i am so freaking hyped.

looks like the anime industry is admitting it's niche bullcrap nowadays. when the second season of super lovers came out i bet they were like "....What the heck are we even doing anymore?"

here's a tip of the hat to its success! i hope it makes it!

This can be said about any language depending on who you're talking to.

Fun Fact: Mandarin Chinese is the most spoken language in the world


No I actually think Mandarin sounds unpleasant and ridiculous, along with Thai and Finnish.
This hurt me as a Finn

Seven sentences and the synopsis is packed to the brim with cliches.

Can't say I'm particularly interested.


Most of the Chinese anime are cliche storms like their Japanese counterparts. They have harem anime as well, however they aren't getting Japanese dubs, sad because I want to watch those and see how good (or bad) they are.

It reminded a bit of the production of anime series, Darker than Black.
Well, you see, because of Hei's adventures alongside with the others.

I don't know how to feel about the synopsis.
A lot of things can go wrong, lol.

That's my point. In your opinion Mandarin, Thai, and Finnish are horrible languages while someone else in the world may believe that English, Spanish, and Japanese are horrible. When I say it depends on the person, all I mean is that people around the world may have different opinions when it comes to languages.

I personally dislike Sundanese, Arabic, and Farsi
