Even though it’s still early in the year, anticipation is building for what is sure to be one of the year’s most talked-about Chinese anime, or donghua: Left Hand Layup. The King’s Avatar, a groundbreaking e-sports donghua, kicked off the 2017 Chinese anime craze. In any case, if my recollection serves me correctly, Left Hand Layup will be the first donghua to take on basketball, one of the most popular sports in the world.
All right, gentlemen, get ready because we’re about to have a thrilling narrative on the basketball court, complete with the typical cliches of a story about young people. Multiple teasers and key visuals for Left Hand Layup’s marketing campaign provide a preview of the emotional impact the donghua is expected to have.
Left Hand Layup Overview
Its animation company, LHL Culture, created a unique original series called Left Hand Layup (Zuo Shou Shang Lan). Since this is their debut effort, judging the quality of the animation is difficult; all we have seen so far in terms of visuals and teasers, however, is encouraging.
In a post on the Reddit subreddit r/donghua, the moderators implied that LHL Culture’s only purpose is to create Left Hand Layup. This leads us to believe that it will be a large-scale production, like Studio BIND’s acclaimed Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation or Samsara Animation’s Fog Hill of the Five Elements.

The latest promotional video for the Left Hand Layup! anime was unveiled in December 2022, and it was announced that the release date would be in February 2023.
Left Hand Layuprelease !’s date, slated for February 2, 2023, was announced on its Weibo page on January 19 alongside a new key graphic, and finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for arrived.
Here’s an interesting tidbit about the company’s employees: Left Hand Layup! Directing (Zuoshou Shanglan) is Xie Zhongli. The Saga of Tanya the Devil (movie), Attack on Titan, The King’s Avatar Season 2, Crystal Sky of Yesterday, Altair: A Record of Battles, Yasuke, Boruto, Rakshasa Street, and One Piece are just a few of the popular anime he has worked on in the past.

Trailer of left-hand layup anime
Here are a few of the many trailers and promotional videos for Left Hand Layup! that have been published when the game was first announced, all the way up to the February 2023 release date that has been hinted at.
The Left Hand Layup anime is backed by the Chinese Basketball Association and appears to be a bold undertaking, as I’ve seen articles about it published on highly regarded anime websites that normally avoid covering donghua in favor of more commercially successful fare like The Kings Avatar and Mo Dao Zu Shi.
Fans should keep an eye out for this donghua in 2023 because, as far as I can tell, the production committee will devote a lot of time and energy to it.
Xu Xing Ze’s sister, Xu Xing You, is a virtual idol with several project entitlements, which is incredible on its own. Both her debut and first album are scheduled for May.
In my opinion, this future donghua has a lot in common with Slam Dunk. For starters, the name comes from the same basketball move—the Left Hand Layup. If you’re unfamiliar, it entails releasing the ball with your left hand while simultaneously lifting your left leg.
Even if you aren’t a basketball nerd, you’ve probably seen this movie many times during a game, and I’m sure you know what it’s called.
