Wuxia literally translates to "martial hero", it's stories of supernatural martial artists, but still within some reason. Xianxia (仙侠 xiānxiá) – literally means “Immortal Heroes”. Xianxia is a newer genre and is essentially a 'fantasy-fied' version of Wuxia, with magic, demons, immortals, people who can fly, etc. Later, official licensed translations began to be published by websites such as Wuxiaworld. Wuxia – translates at martial heroes.
