The A Record of Mortal’s Journey to Immortality Remastered Edition (凡人修仙传之凡人风起天南 重制版, Fanren Xiu Xian Zhuan: Fanren Feng Qi Tian Nan Chongzhi Ban) premiered in China on February 4, 2023 (effectively, February 5, 2023).
Fans of the wuxia donghua series, which has two seasons, are looking forward to the occasion. In case you missed this gem, Fanren Xiu Xian Zhuan Seasons 1 and 2 (English subs) are available via the Anime Made by BiliBili YouTube channel here.
As for the remastered edition (the PV above), there’s likely more to it than mere cosmetic changes, seeing as the original studio that animated the series (Original Force) has been replaced by Wonder Cat Animation.
The synopsis is valid for both versions, so here goes:
“The village boy Han Li was born poor. To subsidize household expenses, he joins the Qixuanmen Sect. Because of his spiritual roots, he was accepted as a disciple by the mysterious Doctor Mo and started to practice ‘Changchun Gong’ arts under his mentorship. Although his qualifications are mediocre, Han Li embarked on the dangerous road of immortal cultivation with his unyielding will and a mysterious vial picked up by accident.”
The A Record of Mortal’s Journey to Immortality donghua series is based on the eponymous web novel by Wang Yu; there’s a fan translation out there. The novel has also inspired a manhua, which is available via BiliBili comics here.
