The word anime is used to describe the style of art used in animations in Japan, but other countries have their own anime too. One of those countries is China. When we talk about Chinese anime, we generally mean the animations which have been created in China or maybe are Chinese adaptation of manga or Manhua (Chinese comics). We made a list of top five Chinese anime, so take a look.
