During Adult Swim Con, Toonami had a surprise announcement that it’s once again partnering with Crunchyroll to produce an original anime series. Called Fena: Pirate Princess, the anime will air on Toonami and stream on Crunchyroll in 2021.
Fena: Pirate Princess will run for 12 episodes. Directed by Kazuto Nakasawa (known for directing Netflix’s B: The Beginning and the animated opening for Catherine), Fena: Pirate Princess follows Fena Houtman, an orphan whose mysterious past allows her to break free of her oppressors and set sail in search of a place where she can be free. Her journey leads to a lifetime of adventure and the accruement of a diverse crew of misfits.
“I’m thrilled to be able to announce our next co-produced anime series with our partners at Crunchyroll and bring Nakazawa’s unique vision to life,” Adult Swim SVP and creative director Jason DeMarco said. “I hope you come to love these characters as much as I do.”
