Quanzhi-fashi "versatile mage" [message #388144] Mon, 28 October 2019 17:01 Go to next message

Hello,

I'm confused about Quanzhi-Fashi and Versatile Mage.

I first started watching the anime Quanzhi-Fashi at YouTube, through
season 3. Later, I found a channel by Boat Ramp with a group of videos
titled Versatile Mage, chapter 1 up to nearly 400 after searching on YT
for Quanzhi-Fashi.

What type of content am I watching On the Boat Ramp channel? I read
some background info that said the series was released as an anime it),
as a manga and as a light novel IIRC.

The Boat Ramp channel is missing some chapters, and it's numbering is
different from that of other channels with Versatile Mage in the title.
I'd like to continue from Chapter 92 or so of the Boat Ramp channel -
the sequence skips at that point, Does another YT channel pick up from
where the Boat Ramp stops?

Thanks,

John

i am confused about why you did not post this
in the rec.arts.anime.misc newsgroup?
The title sounds as though it is Chinese?
Have you checked the online sources?

It seems Chinese to me as well. I don't believe my question belongs in
the anime ng, however. The content I'm watching on YT and the subject
of my question here is not anime, but enlarged copies of the manga or
maybe it is a light novel. If you look for the anime series, as far as
I can tell, the anime ends with season 3. On the other hand, if you
search YT for the title "Versatile Mage", you will find chapters into
the 300 number range. And I noticed that one channel carrying this
series calls them audiobooks, not manga, or light novel or anime.

There are maybe four to five channels that have content with this
title. The numbering sequence throws me off because it seems as if all
of them have a partial number of titles, but not a complete set. If I
knew how the titles on one channel merged into those on another
channel, then perhaps I could view the titles in sequence by going
hopping from one channel to another as I watched them. The titles I'm
watching are not anime, they are stills. I don't know if they are from
manga or from some other form such as the aforementioned light novels
genre. It would probably help put it into context for me if I knew,
hence the point of my query.

I believe the original form of _Versatile Mage_ is a Chinese webnovel, with
the manga (manhua) and anime coming from that.

Both the webnovel and manhua are currently being translated. You can find
legitimate licensed copies of both on webnovel.com, eg.
https://www.webnovel.com/book/7851773505001805/Versatile-Mag e

The webnovel.com manhua doesn't have as many chapters (268) as the "unofficial"
versions; I don't know if the chapter numbering is the same.

I'm reading the webnovel there, and am up-to-date on it; 2 new chapters
most days, chapter 791 currently. Comments say that it's better than the
manhua, but I have no personal knowledge of the manhua.
