This Wildly Successful RPG Is Getting an Anime Adaptation

Friends, the inevitable has finally happened. After becoming a bonafide global sensation upon its release in 2020, HoYoverse’s open-world, gacha-based action RPG Genshin Impact is getting an anime adaptation. To make a big story even bigger, there’s the matter of which studio is providing its services. Because the anime studio in question is ufotable, which is presently famous for its much-heralded adaption of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba.

Given Genshin‘s anime aesthetic, I often find it necessary to remind the uninitiated that Genshin wasn’t produced by a Japanese studio. HoYoverse is based in China. So that’s a nice — and honestly refreshing — bit of international cooperation, eh? Somewhat ironically, the second season of Demon Slayer was censored a bit in China.
