Chinese Co-Production huh? Seems like studios are finally taking advantage of the massive viewers in China.

Just another regular fantasy anime of Pierrot which appears every season.

I rate 3/10 as usual.

The anime will include The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, "battle," "school," and "card games" as themes.


It looks mildly interesting, so why go with a generic-vibe evoking tagline?

Character description for Zhou Yu:
Despite being beautiful, she has little taste for femininity.

High heels, thigh highs, boob armor, useless skirt, and impractical long hair. Riiight.

Anyway, this looks like the usual game (mobile or otherwise) tie-in. I'll reserve judgement until it comes out, but it does not look promising.

seems like the article is missing the best part of this annoucement: Ayane/Zwei are perfoming the OP & ED ,respectively. Also, the Zwei song was shown in the PV

So, it's Chinese card game Fate/Stay Night. Sounds like it could be fun, and the fact that it's a co-production has me somewhat interested.

Sounds like what would happen if Ikki Tousen and Yugi Oh had a child. With the current The Outcast being one of the weakest shows this season, I'm not looking forward to another Chinese-Japanese collaboration anime, but hey maybe this will turn out decent.

Sounds too cliche. I mean, we already have Fate series anime and the card theme is not new either. I also annoyed at the strokes line and ink drop effect in the PV. Turn out it is staff from Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls making this anime too.

Looks pretty generic but I'll give it the 3-episode test. Maybe it'll be good, maybe bad, who knows.
