In the midst of announcing the winners for the Anime Awards, Crunchyroll revealed five upcoming shows that will debut on its streaming service in 2021. It’s an interesting list, with three original anime and two based on existing franchises.
One of the three original anime is what we’re most looking forward to. Zombie Land Saga Revenge is the follow-up to Zombie Land Saga, one of our favorite anime of Fall 2018. Revenge is one of our most anticipated anime of 2021.
The series follows a high school girl who’s struck and killed by a passing truck, only to be revived by an eccentric necromancer 10 years later in order for her to lead an idol group entirely composed of zombies. The show is hilarious, but also tackles emotional scenes with surprising care. Plus, it has a scene where two zombie girls argue by having a rap battle and, honestly, it’s one of the best scenes we’ve seen in an anime.
