    Tencent is the WORLD'S #1 undisputed KING of COPYCATs! Every major work in existence, Tencent has made a clone (or in the process of making one). I have never seen a better looking fairy girl/lady:

    I had to slog thru 63 episodes of Throne of Seal to get to the part...

    Anyone interested can have a look for yourself (the fairy girl segment begins towards the end of Ep 63)!

    When Tencent saw that the West was making a live-action TV Supergirl series, they thought it was a good idea to have their own [animated] series too. IMO, the bifurcated cape/sleeves looks more stylish than the single-piece cape of classical Supergirl:

    (BTW, I love that Kryptonian neck collar!)



    Tencent also copied the hairstyle (tied at the back by a few strands of hair) of Kara Zor'el in the Supergirl 1984 movie...

    (Those dangling things are supposed to be lady sleeves, but they do work as a cape and are way more stylish. Plus, they allow for greater upper body range of motions (ie. in a fight scene) when split in "half" in the middle...)


    Anyways, Huawei makes the #1 phone in the world. Apple has never been able to dethrone Huawei from #1 DXOMark spot after trying for so many years. In the similar manner, Tencent is the KING of STYLE. I don't think Disney nor any Western company can beat Tencent in a fashion/character design contest!!

    It may seem like a walk in the park, take some well known work or character and just clone them... BUT, Tencent actually spent 3 years developing their "Supergirl" animated series.

    Tencent corporate structure also differs from Western companies. A studio like Disney has many projects under development under one umbrella company. Tencent has tens if not hundreds of studios each all developing/working on one particular project/series. I think for Tencent, each studio has to produce quality results or maybe the individual studio gets disbanded. Do-or-die for Tencent studio vs relaxing environment in a Disney project team (even if the team fails to deliver a marketable product, they could always be handed another project to tackle).

    Well about the fairy I think just because she's a blonde fairy doesn't mean it's tinkerbell. It's just another fairy. Still, chinese animation has come a long way. I really liked Dragon's Nest Warriors Dawn and Throne of the Elves. Both really good films.

    I disagree. There's a reason why Tencent puts bells above this fairy's ears (so when she flies there is the sound of "tinkering bells"):

    Also, remember, Tinkerbell doesn't necessarily have to dress in green, she could also dress in PINK like this Fox studio version:

    Lastly, Tencent being very coy. We're talking about the WORLD's #1 EXPERT/PROFESSIONAL COPYCAT here. Basically, to create their fairy "Tinkerbell", Tencent took Sailor Moon, replaced her meatballs with bells, curled her hair a bit around her ears, and shrunk her down in size...
