An original anime titled Kaizoku Oujo(Fena: Pirate Princess) was announced at the Toonami panel during the Adult Swim Con on Sunday. The anime is scheduled to premiere on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block and stream on Crunchyroll in 2021. The project is being billed as a co-production between Adult Swim and Crunchyroll.
Fena: Pirate Princess is a 12 episode original anime series that tells the tale of a young orphan girl, Fena Houtman. Fena has been raised on an Island where there is no hope of becoming anything more than chattel, to be used and discarded by soldiers of the British Empire. But Fena is more than just another powerless orphan. When her mysterious past comes knocking, Fena will break the chains of her oppressors. Her goal: forge a new identity, free of bondage, and search for a place where she can truly belong and find out the true mysteries behind a keyword “Eden.” It is the story of a lifetime adventure she and her crew of misfits and unlikely allies will have, in pursuit of her goals!
Kazuto Nakazawa (B: The Beginning, Blood+, Parasite Dolls) is directing the 12-episode series at Production I.G.
Crunchyroll previously stated it has co-produced more than 60 series since 2015, including The Rising of The Shield Hero, A Place Further Than the Universe, and The Junji Ito “Collection”. Recent “Crunchyroll Originals” anime include Gibiate, Tower of God, The God of High School, Noblesse, TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You, So I’m a Spider, So What?, and EX-ARM.
