The Strongest Characters from Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens

Posted by : zahid
Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens Fight (Wei Zhuang vs Bai Feng)
Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens Fight (Wei Zhuang vs Bai Feng)

In everyday life that I am binge-watching anime and I should be thankful that I could still found some time to do it and still not losing my job, it is such a pleasure to discover some gems. And what I will discuss in this post is about an anime show, a Chinese anime to be specific that truly captivated me and only showed me what the Chinese anime industry could do on a serious level. All this time, I have The King’s Avatar as my greatest influenced and converted me to watch Chinese anime despite seeing other new titles that could challenge its quality such as the Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, and the upcoming Fog Hill of the Five Elements. Though I have to admit and I am a little bit regretful that there’s a gem that I did ignore all this time despite seeing it a lot of times in several Chinese anime database websites.

I am talking about Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens. I should be thankful to my fellow donghua fan on Twitter, @QingSub (Qing_Long – Fifine) for suggesting it to me a lot of times. I am writing this post to share my thoughts about the different characters from Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens and how overwhelmingly strong they are as well as how amazing its fight scenes are.

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - The Quicksand
Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - The Quicksand
As what its title suggests, Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens is related to the Chinese anime Qin’s Moon or The Legend of Qin which first premiered in 2006 and is considered as one of the earliest classics of the Chinese animation. The series is still running until now spawning several seasons including the upcoming The Legend of Qin Season 6 and a series of spin-offs and special episodes which had been a heavy contributor to the growth of Chinese animation industry for over a decade.
Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens is a spin-off of The Legend of Qin and is a prequel to its story which took place several years before the present timeline in the main series. However, despite being a spin-off Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens has an independent story and what I love about it is that I can enjoy it wholeheartedly without thinking too much about the main series as I am not able to finish The Legend of Qin yet and I am still stuck at its second season. Furthermore, anyone can watch and understand the story of Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens without even watching a single episode of the main series.

A short review, Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens anime first premiered in 2016 and as of writing have a total of 73 episodes. Its second season premiered last April 2019 at 61st episode continuing where the story stopped at the season 1 finale. Personally, I binge-watched the first season for 4 days, too bad that I have some work to worry about it or else I could’ve had finished it in a shorter period of time. However, the entire experience of watching it is bliss and I couldn’t get its theme song from my head ever since the first time I heard it when they use it as the first opening theme for the series. It is so enchanting and I think truly befitting for the title of the series.

The story is usually your typical martial arts Chinese drama with political conspiracy, fantasy, and mystery involved. However, what sets it apart from its contemporary is the amazing narration; the storytelling is as enchanting as its music and truly gave us a glimpse at the details of its setting and the characters.  I even enjoyed all the back story of some of the characters and felt like the producer didn’t spare any amount of money to save in order to give us quality animation. Yes, so far Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens have the best fight scenes that I have ever seen from a 3D animated show from China. I think it could compare with those from the Hollywood and the closest donghua I could compare to its quality is Nice Boat Animation’s WHITE SNAKE movie which had been released last January. In overall, I think White Snake edged out Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens but the gap is very small based on my personal standard, and the movie is supposed to be more colorful and visually stunning due to its fantasy setting compare to the series conspiracy theme which is suited for a darker palette of colors.

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Han Fei
Han Fei - he is the main protagonist of the series and our cinnamon roll. Good thing he had strong allies beside him so it's worth mentioning our 9th prince of Han State here as the entire story revolves around him. 

Returning to my original topic, Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens have several strong characterswhich really worth mentioning as the fight scenes in the series were truly mesmerizing. This is actually my first time to write a Top 10 strongest characters post for a Chinese anime though I have previously written about the best team captains from The King’s Avatar. In this post, I’ll share the list ofthe strongest characters from Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens and how amazing is the fight scenes of the show.

A short intro though, there are several powerful groups in the story of Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens and these groups control the exchange of power in the story. Among these groups were the Purple Orchid House (which house the Quicksand), The Nightfall, The Remnants of Baiyue, the Qin Empire, and the Net Trap.


Honglian

Qin's Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Honglian
Han State's Princess Honglian (a Quicksand member)

Princess Honglian is the bratty princess of Han State and the favorite daughter of the Han Emperor. She’s learning martial arts in the series though her strength is still inferior compared to other people in this list but she’s more than capable of holding her own against a normal fight with the ordinary bandit. Later on, she gained the ability of the crimson king snake which proves to help her cultivation to become a powerful poison master later on in the main series. A little bit of spoiler, she became Wei Zhuang subordinate in the main series and one of the antagonists there.


Nong Yu

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Nong Yu
Purple Orchid House' Nong Yu (a Quicksand member)

A timid yet curious lady, Nong Yu possessed two personalities which could easily confuse other people and a quick wit that could even fool the Bloody Marquess. She is a skilled guqin player and seems harmless, but beyond her beauty and innocence is a determined and impulsive assassin who’s willing to sacrifice herself to do her task.


Wushuang Gui

Qin's Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Wushuang Gui
Remnants of Baiyue's Wushuang Gui

Wushuang Gui is the biggest member of the remnants of Baiyue who is using his sheer strength of the brute force to fight his opponent. His body is huge and capable of hardening it to the point that both swords and arrows will be blocked for a certain period of time. His strength is beyond measure showing that is able to break an enchanted prison tank. I think his defensive skill is among the simplest yet effective one in the series so far.


Bai Duwang

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Bai Duwang
Poison master Bai Duwang from Baiyue

An elderly man who is adept in using Baiyue’s poison art, Bai Duwang is able to make his victims see illusions of a snake attacking them using his poison. Among the remnants of the Baiyue, Bai Duwang is the one who is inclined in using poison from different snakes that are living in the Poisonous Pit. He is skilled that he almost killed Moya in one of their clashes when they invaded the palace of the Crown Prince.


Qu Shimo

Qin's Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Qu Shimo
Baiyue's Shaman Chief - Qu Shimo

This guy who is always shown in cloak is the secret shaman chief of Baiyue. He is an ambiguous and dangerous opponent with the ability to bring the dead back to life as his zombie army. He is able to overpower Moya and Baifeng during their first encounter while also able to restraint Zinu when he accompanied Tian Ze on infiltrating the cold palace. In most of the fight, he is seen to be on a supporting role for Tian Ze and Yanling Ji.


Han Qiancheng

The adopted son of Han Yu (Han State 4th prince and also one of the powers aiming to control the Han State), Han Qiancheng is an extremely skilled archer and an adept fighter. His intense fight with Baifeng is among the highlight of the series when he tried to kill the Crown Prince of Han while Baifeng protected the latter who had been kidnapped by the remnants of Baiyue.


Baifeng

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Baifeng
Baifeng of Hundreds of Birds faction of Nightfall

Baifeng is Moya’s subordinate and is one of Nightfall’s strongest assassins. His lightness skill is among the most impressive in the series and could be compared to Moya. His fight against Qu Shimo is quite good when the secret Shaman chief of the Baiyue had been introduced. I think his best fight scenes so far is his showdown against Han Qiancheng on which he protected the Crown Prince of Han from the attack of the highly skilled archer. In the main series of Legend of Qin, Baifeng is among the subordinates of Wei Zhuang in Quicksand and his among the antagonists there.


Zinu

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Zinu
Purple Orchid House owner Zinu (she is one of Quicksand founding member)

She’s the owner of Purple Orchid House whose identity is covered by too much ambiguity and mystery, arguably one of my favorite characters in the series. Not much is known about her other than the fact that her Purple Orchid House had been a gathering area to gain intelligence data about what’s happening in the Han Empire as well as in the other states. She’s also a skilled fighter capable of using her snake sword, Chilian. She is among the few people who have close ties with Wei Zhuang and one of the greatest mystery of this lady is the fact that she holds a very important identity. She had saved our main protagonist Han Fei a lot of times and even fought against Tian Ze.


Moya

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Moya & Baifeng
The leaders of Hundres of Birds faction of Nightfall -  Moya & Baifeng

From the Hundreds of Birds, Moya is one of the top assassins of Nightfall and in the entire Han State even able to easily assassinate high ranking officials of the court. He is the senior of Baifeng and his battle against Wei Zhuang is among my favorites in the series. Whenever we saw some crows in the donghua, it only means that we are up for Moya’s appearance in the story.


Yanling Ji

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Yangling Ji
Baiyue's Yangling Ji

Gentle like water and warm like fire, that is how Yanling Ji had been described. She’s a skilled fighter with the ability to control fire and she could even cast illusions. In most of her fights, she had fought Bai Yifei and Wei Zhuang. She is probably the strongest female fighter in Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens, not accounting Zinu’s real strength. In the recent episodes, it seems that Tian Ze left her to Han Fei’s group to be an observant though I think she could be their temporary ally too.


Tian Ze

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Tian Ze
Tian Ze - the Crown Prince of Baiyue

Tian Ze is the Crown Prince of Baiyue who had been imprisoned by Bai Yifei for 10 years. He is one of the most powerful sorcery in the series so far though he seems to be inferior to Bai Yifei in some fights. At first, though they are on the same league but now that he was freed from the curse, it seems that he could finally unleash his full strength. Despite having the shorter end of the stick, he could fight Bai Yifei one on one, and he could also hold his ground towards Wei Zhuang. He is a man who is dedicated to rebuilding Baiyue after his country had been destroyed by the combined effort of Han and Chu.


Wei Zhuang

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Wei Zhuang

Wei Zhuang is the junior brother of Ge Nie from the Ghost Valley. He one of the most skilled swordsman in the story so far, with only Ge Nie and Xuan Jian, showed to be more skilled than him. He is nonchalant and the taciturn type of person. He is very observant and aside from being a prodigy in swordsmanship, his intelligence is also above of almost everyone in the series. Wei Zhuang is strong enough to take on Yanling Ji, Qu Shimo, Bai Duwang, and Wushuang Gui alone during the rescue mission for Honglian. He is also seen to exchange blows with Bai Yifei though he had been wounded terribly by Xuan Jian during the raid in the Purple Orchid House.

He is one of the main protagonists of Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens while in The Legend of Qin, he is the leader of Quicksand and is considered as one of its most powerful antagonists in the main series.


Ge Nie

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Ge Nie
Qin State Master Swordsman Ge Nie

Ge Nie is the calm and observant senior brother of Wei Zhuang from Ghost Valley. He is considered as the number one swordsman in the Empire of Qin when he gained the respect of the Qin’s emperor – Ying Zheng. In the main series of The Legend of Qin, Ge Nie is among the companions of the main protagonist and served as his protector. In my own opinion, Ge Nie and Wei Zhuang reunion fight are among the best fight sequence in Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens in Episode 50 of the series.


Xuan Jian

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Xuan Jian
One of the strongest assassin from Net Trap - Xuan Jian

Xuan Jian is the highest-ranked Heaven Level assassin of Net Trap. He is an extremely skilled swordsman wielding two-types of swords. He overpowered Wei Zhuang in the raid of Purple Orchid House and he seems to be even more skillful than Ge Nie. In the recent episodes of the series, his backstory is told showing how he loses his wife and how he became one of Net Trap’s most notorious assassin. His real name is never unveiled though the name Xuan Jian is from his dual weapon of black and white swords.


Nilin

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens
Nilin Sword Spirit - Nilin

Nilin is the name of the sword but could also be given to the spirit that wields it. Though, no one knows who is the owner of the Nilin sword, we could conclude that the spirit is its owner and is so far one of the strongest characters in Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens whose full strength is never revealed yet as he only appears in crucial moments when Han Fei’s life is in grave danger. I just want to see him and Bai Yifei though in an open clash to finally see who is stronger. Nonetheless, we did manage to see him overwhelm Tian Ze and it’s definitely among the highlight of the series for me.


Bai Yifei

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Bai Yifei
Pure White, Blood Marquess of Nightfall - Bai Yifei

The Bloody Marquess (Pure White, Blood Marquess) whose real name is Bai Yifei cultivation ability could be compared to what we call vampirism. Yes, Bai Yifei could be called the vampire of Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens and he seriously has the skills to back that up. In own opinion, Bai Yifei is the strongest and most formidable characters to appear in the series so far as of writing this post. He easily overpowered Nong Yu and even captured Yanling Ji during his offense against the remnants of the Baiyue. He was able to hold Tian Ze in captured for several years and could easily fight Tian Ze and Yanling Ji combined effort in the Purple Orchid House raid.


So far, these were the list of the strongest characters in Nine Songs of the Moving Heavensthat I felt like any movement of them could affect the course of the story of the series especially those in the upper echelon of this list. Though, I would like to mentioned that intelligence and decision-making is also a power that could manipulate anyone that is why I have to mention Han Fei and Han Yu here as this brothers were definitely not the fighter type but could make other people do their bidding and their actions could definitely affect the story especially our protagonist Han Fei.

Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens - Quicksand Members

If you hadn’t watch Qin’s Moon: Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens yet, I highly advise you or even urge you to watch it especially if you like 3D animation shows such as The Legend of Qin, Martial Universe, Battle Through The Heavens, Soul Land, Stellar Transformations, and the like The Legend and the Hero. I’ll say Nine Songs of the Moving Heavens were superior to these Chinese anime shows as of now, it is definitely worth checking out if you’re among those anime fans who venture to follow Chinese anime industry as it grows.

Friendship Goals: Top 10 Best of Friends that Glanced the Anime Universe

Posted by : zahid

Top 10 Best of Friends from Anime

Friendship – a very cliché and fragile yet important aspect of our life and of our being. They said human is a social animal, thus, we have to interact with our surroundings both with the living and non-living things. And among the living organisms, we see humans – they could be our family, allies, enemies, friends, or just people that simply know or maybe a plain stranger. Among human relationships, there is one which seems to be overwhelmingly strong and it wasn’t attached by any blood relations and could make the world bigger for us. They are the people that we call friend/s.

Let me ask you guys, how many friends do you have? Possibly, you have tons of friends because in general people whom you find a common interest and you both thrive in the company of each other, there will always be that one and only person to whom you trust your world, your heart, your everything and that is what we call best friends. And even in the anime universe, best friends do exist and they even play their part even better than what real-life people do.

In honor of those extraordinary friendships that exist in the anime, we had listed 10 of the most special anime best friends from different series. Hoping that these friendships will make us humans jealous of them even a little and inspire us to become better friends towards each other and value the bonds that we shared with those friends that truly matter to us at the moment. So let’s start our list with one of my favorite among them as follows:

Sakura Kinomoto & Tomoyo Daidouji

Friendship: Cardcaptor Sakura - Sakura Kinomoto & Tomoyo Daidouji
Cardcaptor Sakura - Sakura Kinomoto & Tomoyo Daidouji

The friendship of Sakura & Tomoyo is no doubt belongs to the category where one idolized the other and put the focus of her attention to another one. However, Sakura and Tomoyo thrive in the existence of each other and it’s really amazing how their friendship is so enduring and their devotion towards each other is simply unshakable. Their friendship simply shows that we all need someone to lean especially during the school days and share the excitement of life with them.


Houtarou Oreki & Satoshi Fukube

Friendship: Hyouka - Houtarou Oreki & Satoshi Fukube
Hyouka - Houtarou Oreki & Satoshi Fukube

This duo had always been a favorite of mine. They are both brilliant in their respective strength on which sometimes I felt like their way of thinking is almost the same especially when they both conclude the same answer but the mental process behind it is quite different. And that’s where the important aspect of their friendship enters. Having friends does not simply mean having someone to talk with, someone to walk home with, someone who listens to our rants, but it is having someone who knows your weaknesses and helps you to strengthen it. Someone who will say “I’ve got your back” and this is the aspect of Houtarou and Satoshi’s friendship that I admire the most.


Mahiro Fuwa & Yoshino Takigawa

Friendship: Blast of Tempest - Mahiro Fuwa & Yoshino Takigawa
Blast of Tempest - Mahiro Fuwa & Yoshino Takigawa

Beyond friendship and the rivalry, Mahiro and Yoshino really have that special sparks between them with illuminates the entire story of Blast of Tempest in every episode where they’re both in. The complicated relationship between these two friends is quite bizarre but maybe it’s because the common piece that connects them had been gone and was the most precious person to each of them. In the end, their friendship had overcome any obstacles that make things complicated for them and they’re able to reconcile. I felt like Mahiro and Yoshino reminds me of great the rivalry from other famous anime characters especially Light and L, Lelouch and Suzaku, Naruto and Sasuke, and even Goku and Vegeta.


Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn

Friendship: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn

Tom and Huck have a very special kind of friendship from an amazing anime that influenced my childhood days in a tremendous way. If I may be a little bit brutal here, The Adventure of Tom Sawyer is among those anime that taught us to live our life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it because it is the essence of being a child. Impulsive, carefree, cheerful, energetic, free-spirited and more, these were only some of the attributes that Tom and Huck had imbued in our souls when we were a kid and their friendship is the one that each of us could easily relate with. After all, in each and every one of us lives a Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn who are excited to explore life and make the best out of it.



Harunobu Nikaidō & Rei Kiriyama

Friendship: March Comes in Like a Lion - Harunobu Nikaidō & Rei Kiriyama
March Comes in Like a Lion - Harunobu Nikaidō & Rei Kiriyama

A peculiar names in our list, this is the one-sided best friend scenario that we had here one which only Nikaido felt and stated and he is Rei’s best friend and rival. However, it may sound stupid or obnoxious; I seriously have great respect for Nikaido for being the tsundere friend who is willing to help Rei at any opportunity he gets even though there are times that it feels like he is dragging the latter to a whirlpool of coincidence.


Seishu Handa & Naru Kotoishi

Friendship: Barakamon - Seishu Handa & Naru Kotoishi
Barakamon - Seishu Handa & Naru Kotoishi

Well, what we have here is a rather peculiar but truly inspirational team-up of two of my favorite anime characters ever. Seishu Handa who I enjoy calling sensei and the young and ever-lively island girl Naru, these two really made a pretty good pair of friends despite the large age gap. It’s even more amazing how an adult could learn from young people’s carefree nature in order to see things from a different perspective. In this light, Seishu and Naru really did what best friends should suppose to do.


Lelouch vi Britannia & Suzaku Kururugi


Friendship: Code Geass - Lelouch vi Britannia & Suzaku Kururugi
Code Geass - Lelouch vi Britannia & Suzaku Kururugi

A friendship that even war couldn’t break, that even a tragedy couldn’t faze. Lelouch and Suzaku’s friendship is a bizarre one that thrives in the difference in their principles in life but finds a way to reconcile to protect their common ground. For our readers who had watched Code Geass already, we had seen Lelouch and Suzaku fought each other and defend each other in so many ways and circumstances and it’s really amazing how they still ended up as allies in the conclusion of the story. If there is anything that we could conclude in all of this, it is the fact that their friendship is an enduring one that no matter what kind of tragic event falls upon them, they’ll try to find a way to reconcile as long as there’s a term that they could agree with.



Roy Mustang & Maes Hughes

Friendship: Full Metal Alchemist - Roy Mustang & Maes Hughes
Full Metal Alchemist - Roy Mustang & Maes Hughes

These two is among the most delicate anime characters from one of my favorite anime series ever which is the Full Metal Alchemist (Brotherhood). Roy and Maes also showed us a friendship worth to be jealous of despite the fact that (spoiler ahead for readers who didn’t watch FMA yet) Maes eventually died in the story. They showed us what real comradeship is; in fact, they remind me of Chairman Netero from Hunter x Hunter and his best friend on which one has to work in the light and other in the dark). Though it doesn’t necessarily apply to Roy and Maes, these two did play different roles in the military.


Gon Freecss & Killua Zoldyck

Friendship: Hunter x Hunter - Gon Freecss & Killua Zoldyck
Hunter x Hunter - Gon Freecss & Killua Zoldyck

Young, wild, and free I think this was the easiest description that I could give to Gon Freeccs and Killua Zoldyck friendship. They both showed us what real friendship is especially when facing all dangers together. Their friendship is something to keep and it’s really amazing how they could keep up with each other despite the fact that they have very different nature and lives in a completely different world. I think that’s what happened when you befriend people who are your polar opposite on which your body and mentality adjusted to them nonchalantly and you’ll simply find out later on that both of you synchronized in so many ways. 


Kaneki Ken & Hideyoshi Nagachika

Friendship: Tokyo Ghouls - Kaneki Ken & Hideyoshi Nagachika
Tokyo Ghouls - Kaneki Ken & Hideyoshi Nagachika

In the top of our list for anime best friends is no other than Kaneki and Hide from Tokyo Ghoul. A friendship that goes beyond differences and even defies death. On a personal level, I seriously thought that Kaneki and Hide’s friendship is among the most intricate relationship in Tokyo Ghoul universe. Sometimes, I couldn’t just stop myself from shipping them while in any sense they’re simply the embodiment of two real friends who treasure one another especially Hide and all his sacrifices for Kaneki. I am also glad and fascinated that Kaneki didn’t let his guilt and the distance between them to let their friendship end and eventually, they’re reunited to work hand in hand which simply shows what best of friends supposed to be doing.


That ends our list for the best pair of friends from different anime series. In case you think that we had forgotten something or someone, please let us know by leaving a comment below.

Posted by : zahid

The King’s Avatar Live-Action

The announcement for the live-action series for one of China’s most popular donghua of this decade had been made since 2017 and ever since we had been treated to occasional surprises with news and teasers about it. In fact, just 2 days ago, the production team had dropped a new teaser visual for The King’s Avatar live-action drama featuring Yang Yan as Ye Xiu and some selected cast members of the show. In almost 2 years, Tencent had been silent about the release date of The King’s Avatar live-action series and everybody had been going haywire lately when it will air despite of releasing promotional images in the past and its official trailer last December 2018.

The King’s Avatar Live-Action

Now, everybody should mark their calendar tonight as the highly anticipated Chinese drama will premiere featuring one of China’s most promising actor – Yang Yang as the Glory’s Textbook Ye Xiu. Other cast members of the live-action drama are consists of both veterans and new faces in the Chinese television which offers a refreshing sight to look at. Though, as far as I’m concern, some people had been criticizing how the production team will portray the gaming world and we had been lucky enough to see some shots of it in few promotional images shown below.

What is your opinion about the gaming world of The King’s Avatar live-drama? In my own opinion, I think it’s not that bad but nothing spectacular as of now, though I can’t say anything yet until I have watched the series itself. Furthermore, here are some screenshots of the show with Yang Yang as Ye Xiu’s in-game character Lord Grim.

So, what could you say about this The King’s Avatar live-action so far guys? Although, it’s too early to share our critical thoughts but it’s always good to know the first impression of the viewers. On my end, I am not particularly expecting too much but as a fan of The King’s Avatar novel and donghua, I am having this show in my watchlist no matter what happened though I think it’ll focus more on the part where Ye Xiu had returned in the alliance which means it will be ahead a thousand of miles compared to the anime adaptation which season 2 is coming this 2019 too. Furthermore, The King's Avatar anime adaptation also gets a prequel movie which is slated for release on August 16 and here are some information worth checking out about it:



The King’s Avatar Live-Action New Teaser Preview


Here is also the official synopsis of the live-action series as follows:

Ye Xiu, a top player in the online game named Glory, was expelled by the game club for various reasons. After leaving the club, he was taken in by Chen Guo, the owner of Xingxin Internet Cafe, and became a network manager on night shift. Ye Xiu, who had ten years of experience in games, did not intend to give up his beloved "Glory". So Ye Xiu restarted his ID account "Jun Mo Xiao", held an unfinished self-made weapon named a thousand machine umbrella, and re-entered the game in the newly opened 10th district of Glory to achieve his plan to return to the top. Jun Mo Xiao showed extraordinary talents in the 10th District and Ye Xiu met many new friends during the process of open up the 10th District with whom he formed a strong team and embarked on a glorious journey for their dream.
