Going to keep low expectations for this. Plus, I'm not very familiar with the staff so far.

Yay, I can finally tell my friends:

"Yo, nigga! Watch this Chinese cartoon shit. It's literally made by the Chinese".

Anyways, I'm sure this will turn out really bad.

I still await the day that Tower of God, Noblesse, the Breaker, or Feng Shen Ji get adaptations. I mean just a couple years back you did not get any manhua/manhwa adaptations and now we are getting a few ones here and there. That has to mean something right?


Yes. Except, 2/3 of those titles already have adaptations...

Noblesse has this and this.
Feng Shen Ji has an adaptation that's airing right now (which I'm watching). MAL page here.

Saying that, I wish China and Korea would pump money into adapting good, popular works instead of collaborating or giving crappy ones to the Japanese industry... The Chinese ones that get adapted outside of China are generic/cliche/shitty ones that are like bad fanfic that somehow got published. =_= Plus Chinese manhua are super rooted in Chinese culture, which is completely lost/awkward in translation...

I'll give the first episode a spin though. Maybe "Bloodivores" will be so bad it'll be good for the laughs...
Then again, it's called Bloodivores.

If you're going to adapt Chinese shit do The legend of the sun knight, you bastards.

:L
Ok I'll watch.

The Chinese characters are so unshaded, bland or something, it's like they're missing a step in the designs.

Ah yes, Chinese web comic adaptations that are only announced 1 month before they air with only-god-knows-who for staff.
What could possibly go wrong!

Sep 1, 2016 1:33 AM by Paulo27

Looks bad like most all other chinese anime...sigh

Why they don't plan to adapt some good potential Manhwa/Manhua like Tower of God, Gamer, Feng Shen Ji etc... D:
