A new trailer for FreakAngels, a Crunchyroll Original series based on the graphic novel series of the same name, was also revealed. It will premiere on the platform in 2022.


“Welcome to Whitechapel: last bastion of humanity. Six years ago, the world “ended” in a single, apocalyptic event, trapping Great Britain behind a mysterious dome of purple energy. London’s last neighborhood has persevered thanks to the protection of the “FreakAngels” — a small group of psychically-powered twenty-three-year-olds. Their fragile peace becomes threatened, however, when an exiled friend returns, exposing past conspiracies and new conflicts within their fractured, makeshift family. Can Whitechapel survive?”


It was also revealed that Crunchyroll’s mascot, Crunchyroll-Hime, will be joining the world of the mobile game Mitrasphere. Mitrasphere is Crunchyroll Games‘ mobile co-op RPG, where players work together to take down powerful enemies and earn loot for their characters. The special in-game event will have Crunchyroll-Hime and Yuzu transported to Mitrasphere, where they team up with players to stop Sky Pirate set on acting out a chaotic plan. A limited-time event, players can earn unique rewards for participating.

All of this was announced alongside the November 13th release date for Blade Runner: Black Lotus and a new official trailer for Shenmue the Animation.


An exciting time to be a fan of Crunchyroll! These announcements and upcoming series are sure to have something you just don’t want to miss!
