The Chinese anime adaptation, or donghua, of MDZS has two seasons so far, with a chibi donghua currently running. A third season has been teased. A manhua (a Chinese manga) is also currently underway.

MDZS also has a live-action adaptation, The Untamed (or Chen Qing Ling) which can be streamed on Netflix.

In addition, those wishing to read the original MDZS novel can find plenty of fan-made translations online, although no official English translation has been published so far. MXTX also has two other danmei novels, which can also be found online.
