posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Tencent and Success announced on Tuesday that they are producing a Chinese-Japanese co-produced animated series adaptation of the Tencent comic Chōyū Sekai (World of Super Sand Box). The animation will premiere in both China and Japan on January 12. Success is streaming a promotional video for the series, with Japanese theme song by Riho Iida. The video describes the anime as a "miraculous story about fiction, reality, and people's thoughts merging."
