Xianxia anyone?

Anyone here’s into xianxia? I know we are a wuxia forum but there is many similarities between the two genres.

Haven’t dabbled much in this genre but it is so popular the past few years

Do they talk about immortals like Zixia in the Chinese Odyssey?

I think they do. Any xianxia experts in the house?

Yeah because it’s a breath of fresh air in the west.

There should be a fan fiction of that at least! Haha! There are some xianxia with immortals. Many in fact.

I wonder why. You get elves or other races that are pretty much immortal too in western fantasy.

it’s all about the oriental setting

Not that big a fan. But it’s a refreshing genre. Good to see new ideas other than western style fantasy.

I’d say it’s an old genre. Just saw a resurgence recently due to a newfound interest in the genre.

In a way, it’s like an oriental fantasy genre.

I read some. We have A Martial Odyssey here on WuxiaSociety. Yay!

Check out the tv series Ice Fantasy.

What’s the Chinese name for reference?

@liubei Yay!

“Ice Fantasy” was made into a TV series. You can find clips or episodes on YouTube. I think they are working on a sequel but set in modern times.

I’ll check it out. Thanks!
