The Thousand Autumns: Qian Qiu Donghua Series

Qian Qiu is a well-known title among danmei fans as it’s already been treated to a donghua adaptation (ONA series). The CGI donghua goes by the name Shanhe Jian Xin (山河剑心) and premiered on Tencent Video in 2021.

The Thousand Autumns Season 2 was announced shortly following the Season 1 premiere, during the Tencent Video Animation Conference in August 2021.

Of course, there have been no follow-ups since, which seems to be the usual case for donghua sequels, even the most popular ones. Hopefully, we Shanhe Jian Xin Season 2 won’t face the same fate as Heaven Official’s Blessing Season 2.

Plot-wise, Thousand Autumns focuses on an unlikely romance between Yan Wushi — a leader of a demonic cultivation clan — and Shen Qiao, the leader of the Xuandu Mountain who gets blinded due to misfortune.

All episodes can be found on BiliBili and elsewhere on YouTube. Use the kanji (山河剑心) to look the series up!
