Awesome battle scenes! Popular voice actors gathered for the Japanese dubbed version!

The Legend of Hei
The Chinese animated film "The Legend of Hei" serves as a prequel to its popular web animation version. It has received critical acclaim after the release at mini theatres in Tokyo and other places this spring, thus coming back with a Japanese dubbed version this time!
The Legend of Hei
The story takes place in modern-day China where cat fairy Xiao-Hei, who lost his home due to deforestation, met another fey creature Fengxi and a human Mugen. It is revealed that something big involving humans and the fey creatures is going to happen because of a "thing" that Xiao-Hei possesses. The movie depicts the conflict of the fey creatures whether to coexist with humans or to begin a war, as if bringing up the subject of "Nature VS Humans". However, don't worry if it would be distressful to watch, as Xiao-Hei and other characters are incredibly adorable! Furthermore, there are so many great voice actors participating in the Japanese dubbed version! Another highlight of the movie is the mentorship between Xiao-Hei (CV.: Hanazawa Kana), who looks adorable in both the cat and the humaoid forms, and the cool Mugen (CV.: Miyano Mamoru). Though he finds Xiao-Hei troublesome, the chemistry between the two is amusing. You might also be surprised by another cool hero-like character Fengxi (CV.: Sakurai Takahiro)!
