Promotional Videos & Teaser Trailers
Bilibili and Hui Guang Studio have previously unveiled several PVs and trailers as well as visuals to tease the fans of the series for its upcoming release on January 10. Here are some of them:
With all the absurd style of Chinese humor, we can all expect that Hua Kai Zhang Meili is going to be a hilarious ride. If you had seen some donghua from Bilibili in recent years such as Salted Fish and many more, you’ll definitely have the same feels with all the gag and parodic vibes you can get from this new donghua, albeit, it also has the shoujo feels that we often get from various popular Japanese animation.
