A Mortal’s Journey to Immortality (Fan ren Xiu Xian Zhuan)
Release: July 25, 2020 | Studio: Original Force — Here’s an astounding Chinese 3D anime that I am seriously looking forward this year. Fan ren Xiu Xian Zhuan or also known with its plain name A Mortal’s Journey to Immortality that I think sums up its story. Nonetheless, A Mortal’s Journey to Immortality is one of the most popular xianxia novels by author Wang Yu. Therefore, we can expect an amazing cultivation anime story from it. I wonder though if it could put a competition against the ongoing Stellar Transformation season 2 which is one of the best and real xianxia anime in recent years. A Mortal’s Journey to Immorality can be watched at bilibili once it premieres. The anime has been listed to get 12 episodes in total.

The story will pick up from where the 2018’s OVA of The King’s Avatar ended and it’ll be an amazing adventure my fellow fans who had been waiting for years for The King’s Avatar to see Ye Xiu, and Lord Grim back as they wreak havoc in the gaming world of Glory.
