Zhongli Birthday Celebrated by Genshin Fans With Fanart & Cosplay

Here's how fans are celebrating Zhongli's birthday

December 30, 2021

December 31 marks the birthday of Zhongli, one of the most popular if not the most beloved male character of Genshin Impact – Let’s check some of the best fanart and cosplay from Japanese Twitter.

You might have noticed, it’s already December 31 in Japan. So Japanese Genshin Impact fans are already sharing tons of content for Zhongli’s birthday.

Note that when the birthday of a character as popular as Zhongli comes around, many fans prepare fanart and cosplay beforehand. And share them as soon as clocks hit midnight.

“Shouri” and “Shouri Sensei” 鍾離先生 (professor Shouri), Zhongli’s name in Japanese, have been trending on Twitter.

How old is Zhongli in Genshin Impact?

We only know that as one of the original members of The Seven, alive since before the Archon War, Zhongli is over 6000 years old.

Zhongli is one of the most useful Genshin Impact characters thanks to his Jade Shield E / Elemental Skill. Making nearly every fight in the game trivial. You just can’t die with Zhongli on your team.

There’s a second big reason: In Japanese, Zhongli is voiced by Tomoaki Maeno. Who is one of the most popular seiyuu (Japanese voice actresses and actors) in anime. Maeno was most notably the voice of Hiro Hayami, one of the protagonists of Pretty Series and the King of Prism movies. Which popularized Cheer Screening in Japan. Movie screenings where you can sing and scream.

As usual, Japanese fans made a “birth festival” #鍾離生誕祭2021 hashtag to share their fanart. Be sure to activate the “lang:ja” search option on twitter if you’d only like to see what Japanese fans shared. Plus, I must warn you though that most Japanese fans have no qualms sharing fanart of their favorite pairings. Including those you might dislike. Or NSFW content. So browse the tag at your own risk.

I’ve included some of the cosplay and fanart I’ve spotted in a series of tweets below. And an official birthday artwork for Zhongli will also be published by the Genshin socials in few hours.
