Link Click Season 2 gets its first look!
Chinese anime, or Donghua, is slowly and steadily becoming popular amongst the worldwide fandom.
Characters and their stories from the Red Dragon country, albeit in its infancy are proving to be a worthwhile watch.
While Japanese anime remains unchallenged and unrivaled, there is no doubt Donghua provides a good alternative for fans who, from time to time, want to experience something different.
Numerous popular Donghua has been released over the years, such as The Daily Life Of The Immortal King, The King’s Avatar, and Grandmaster Of Demonic Cultivation.
But the one standout series which has created its golden podium is the donghua produced by Studio LAN and Haoliners Animation League, Link Click.
The story follows Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang, who run a Time Photo Studio that allows them to enter into photographs bought by their customers.
Through their superpowers, Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang provide a special service for clients who wish to relive the pictures’ movements.
After the photo is given by the client, Cheng Xiaoshi travels back in time to that instant when the picture was taken and absorbs the photographer’s memories and emotions in the process.
Meanwhile, Lu Guang helps Cheng Xiaoshi to keep track of time so that the photographer can relive the memories.
While the service looks intriguing at first look, there are a few limitations wherein only 12 hours are available with one chance to travel in time and find what their client is searching for while leaving the past events unchanged.
The time travel also puts Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang at significant risk as one wrong step could alter the future and even keep the pair stuck in the past.
Can Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang fulfill their client s’ request amidst the peril of changing the course of future events is the central plot of the show.

In the finale of Link Click season one, “Pinnacle of Light,” the visit from the attacker was all part of Cheng s’ plan, which had made a deal to return Xu in exchange for a hint.
The attackers agree and so does Lu Guang with both stuck with Cheng in the present.
They fight it out as Cheng enters the’ victims s’ photograph, which further reveals Liu Min s’ identity, and subsequently gets arrested by the Police.
The Police interrogate Liu Min, but his inconstant paralysis proves to be difficult to extract anything out.
Liu tells the Police that it was his friend who was behind the killings owing to multiple personality disorders and schizophrenia.
The Police find themselves in a muddle as the medical report shows no diagnosis of such behaviors.
Cheng saves Emma from the CCTV footage, but she is found in Liu Min s’ trunk, which sends Liu into turmoil, thinking he is the killer.
Emma crashes the car and texts her parents, but they wait for her to find the broken device.
Despite being confronted by Cheng, Emma jumps off the bridge as her eyes change significantly.
In the present time, Qiao has the same effect on his eyes as Emma, prompting her to stab Lu Guang.
The episode ends with a possessed Qiao taunting Cheng for cheating and remarks that they look forward to the continuation of their reset “game.”
Since Link Click is an original series, no Link Click manga or manhua acts as source material for the future plot.
However, Link Season 2 will have plenty of action, beginning with Cheng and Lu wondering how to beat the new enemy in the form of Qiao.
They don’t want the extent of his powers and are in danger of getting possessed by the possessed Qiao. Can they beat him without any sacrifices?
Another mystery that will need answering is who is behind the killing of Emma since Liu Min has his alibi checked out.
The antagonist seems to be quite interested in the two-time travelers as they warn the pair not to take this as a game.
Amongst the many new Link Click Season 2 characters could be this secret villain who is lurking in the shadows targeting Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang.
Speaking of Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang, where did their time-traveling powers come from, and are they linked in the past?
