Fena: Pirate Princess, the upcoming Crunchyroll and Adult Swim original series coming later this summer, has given a better look at the adventure ahead alongside a new trailer and never-before-seen production art!

“Fena Houtman remembers little about her childhood. Orphaned and raised as a servant in a brothel, her life changes when she escapes to an island of pirates where she discovers the truth behind her family. With Fena being the only one able to unlock her family’s secrets, and a formidable crew of female pirates on her tail, she must take her place as captain of her Samurai crew for a high seas adventure!”

Featuring director Kazuto Nakazawa and Production I.G. producer Rui Kuroki, the duo share interesting background information for the series alongside images, character art, backgrounds, and more.
