The Beauty of Donghua a video essay by Cuchallain.

Donghua is beautiful 中国动画是美丽的. This video is a love letter to the donghua industry which is part editorial and part AMV or MAD. The editorial part is me trying to find the words about why I love donghua so much but mostly just fumbling my way through some fanboying statements. The AMV/MAD part is me using my terrible editing skills to try and show off some of the more beautiful scenes of Donghua that have led to me falling in love with it. Down in the comments section you’ll find a full list of the Donghua I used clips of for this video and if you’d like to know where any specific clip came from simply ask me in the comments section and I’ll try to get back to you. Thank you for watching.
