Sheng Shi Zhuang Niang (Beauty Blogger) Anime 

Genres: Game, Historical, Drama, Romance, Shoujo, Love Triangle, Isekai 

Story: (9/10) 

A Chinese beauty blogger suffers from a fatal accident. As she recovers from her injuries, her soul can only survive in a game environment. Like a typical isekai anime, the heroine is whisked away in to a foreign world inside Imperial China with unfamiliar surroundings. She must clear missions and quests by using cosmetic and makeup products. Luckily, she has the assistance of a blonde NPC named Jack. But as she continues playing, the routes become more and more dangerous. Although intended to be a shoujo anime, there are action packed scenes, romantic encounters, a love triangle, and a whirlwind of drama. 

Animation: (9/10)  This anime uses shoujo-styled art with beautiful scenery, and graphics. 

Characters (9/10):
The main character uses simple, unsophisticated makeup techniques to alter the image of the game characters. Since the game takes place in Imperial China, the game characters are dressed up in traditional Chinese clothing from the historical time of the Chinese emperor. The characters include members of the Imperial court, peasants, military generals, military soldiers, NPCs, and game players. 

Sound (9/10): Mandarin Chinese music in a nut shell.
