Franchouchou is back! Crunchyroll might be busy with this year's Anime Awards but the streaming service also took time to announce new titles that will be available this year. There are five new animes launching in Spring 2021 and they include the second season of Zombie Land Saga as well as Tokyo Revengers.
Funimation's recent acquisition of Crunchyroll has ensured that the latter's library will be stocked well with new titles. This was confirmed as Crunchyroll announced five new titles that will premiere starting April. Check them out below.
Zombie Land Saga: Revenge
"From throughout the ages, a group of legendary girls have become zombie idols to save Saga Prefecture. It's the return of the cutting-edge zombie idol anime! One day, Minamoto Sakura lost her life in an unfortunate accident. Then, ten years later…
"After Sakura wakes up in a strange mansion, mysterious idol producer Tatsumi Kotaro tells her that she will be joining a group of legendary girls to form an idol unit. The seven girls are charged with a quest to save the fading Saga Prefecture and adopt the group name Franchouchou.
"After overcoming the difficulties stemming from their different ages and different periods of history, their undead zombie bodies allow them to defy expectations of what idols can be. During the final winter of the Heisei era they performed their first featured concert at Karatsu's Furusato Exhibition Hall, Arpino, taking another step towards becoming a legend. Now, in the modern Reiwa Era…
"The curtain rises on a new chapter in the story of Franchouchou, as they march towards a bright future full of hope."

I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level
"An at-home comedy about a powerful girl who doesn't work too hard! After dying of overwork in the real world, I'm reincarnated as an immortal witch, and I spend 300 years enjoying a relaxing life. At some point, though, I end up at level 99! All those years spent killing slimes to make the money to pay the bills gave me a ton of experience points…
"Rumors of the level 99 witch spread, and soon I'm up to my ears in curious adventurers, duelist dragons, and even a monster girl calling me her mom! 'This isn't a dojo, so don't come here to fight me…!' I've never been on an adventure, but I'm the strongest in the world… What's going to happen to my relaxing life?!"
I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level will be available in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS. It will be available starting April 2021.
Joran The Princess Of Snow And Blood
"The year is 1931. Prince Tokugawa Yoshinobu is 94 years old and holds absolute control over Japan. Remnants of the Meiji era's culture can be seen around the city, but scientific technology and Japanese esoteric cosmology Onmyodo are also developing, exuding a sense of modernity. Yet lurking behind the glitz is Kuchinawa, a dissident group planning the assassination of the prince, and effectively the fall of the regime.
"Tasked to extinguish these dissidents is Nue, the government's secret executioner group. Sawa Yukimura, who works for this organization, suffered from an early age at the hands of the Kuchinawa boss. Her entire family was murdered and she dedicated her life to avenging their death."
Crunchyroll has not yet announced the Joran The Princess of Blood and Snow release date. Likewise, the territories in which the anime will be available have not yet been confirmed. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
"So, where to?"
"This town should look familiar, but suddenly, it's not.
"The taxi driver Odokawa lives a very mundane life. He has no family, doesn't really hang out with others, and he's an oddball who is narrow-minded and doesn't talk much. The only people he can call his friends are his doctor, Gouriki and his classmate from high school, Kakibana.
"All of his patrons seem to be slightly odd themselves. The college student who wants the world to notice him online, Kabasawa. A nurse with secrets named Shirakawa. A comedy duo that just can't catch a break named the Homosapiens. A local hoodlum named Dobu. An idol group that's just starting out named Mystery Kiss... All these mundane conversations somehow eventually lead to a girl who's gone missing."
OddTaxi will be available in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS. It will premiere on Crunchyroll in April.
"Takemichi Hanagaki is a freelancer that's reached the absolute pits of despair in his life. He finds out that the only girlfriend he ever had in his life that he dated in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, had been killed by the ruthless Tokyo Manji Gang.
"The day after hearing about her death, he's standing on the station platform and ends up being pushed over onto the tracks by a herd of people. He closes his eyes thinking he's about to die, but when he opens his eyes back up, he somehow had gone back in time 12 years. Now that he's back living the best days of his life, Takemichi decides to get revenge on his life by saving his girlfriend and changing himself that he'd been running away from."
Tokyo Revengers will be available in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS. It is also set to premiere in April 2021.
