Spiritpact is a fantasy Chinese web comic that describes a friendship that surpasses life and death by Pingzi. Originally titled Ling qi, it has been serialized in Tencent Animation & Comics, and currently has 163 chapters released. It is popular among female fans. An ONA series was just released this Summer. Honestly after watching the Japanese dub I have no idea why I prefer the Chinese version better.
