Ya She (Silent House): A Potential BL Feast for Danmei Donghua Fans?

As a gay anime fan, I’m buzzing with anticipation for a new Chinese donghua (animation) titled Ya She, also known as Silent House. While there’s no confirmed release date yet, its inclusion in Tencent’s upcoming lineup fills me with hope. What truly has me on the edge of my seat is the possibility of Silent House being a danmei donghua – a Chinese boys’ love (BL) animation.

About Ya She (Silent House)

The trailers released so far for Silent House are packed with hints that set my danmei radar off like crazy. While the plot itself focuses on a bustling city with a mysterious antique shop called Ya She, selling rare treasures, there’s a certain undercurrent of intimacy between the two male leads that can’t be ignored. Their lingering gazes, unspoken understanding, and the way they seem to move in sync all point towards a potential romantic connection.

Of course, with Chinese BL media often employing subtle storytelling techniques to navigate censorship restrictions, it’s hard to say for sure. But the hints are there, and that’s enough to pique my interest as a danmei enthusiast.

Beyond the exciting possibility of a danmei story, Silent House boasts a team that promises a visually stunning experience. Colored Pencil Animation Studio, known for their meticulous attention to detail, is behind the animation. Their past works showcase their ability to create breathtaking visuals, and I have no doubt Silent House will be no exception.

Tencent’s involvement as the streaming platform further adds to the hype. Tencent is a major player in the Chinese entertainment industry, and their backing ensures Silent House will have a wide reach. This means more viewers get to experience the potential danmei magic of Ya She!

While we wait for a confirmed release date, all we have are the intriguing trailers and the promise of a captivating story. But for a BL fan like me, those are enough to fuel my excitement. Silent House has the potential to be a groundbreaking Chinese danmei donghua, offering a beautiful story with a dash of romance. It’s a donghua I definitely won’t be missing, and I highly recommend keeping an eye out for it as well!
