Crunchyroll has revealed its extensive Fall 2021 lineup and it looks like we'll be seeing some major titles later this year. This includes the highly anticipated Blade Runner: Black Lotus, SAKUGAN, Platinum End, and more!
Blade Runner: Black Lotus serves as a sequel to Black Out and will feature Iron Fist star Jessica Henwick as Elle. The upcoming anime follows a female replicant as she tries to figure out her purpose. The new show has not yet been given an official release date but is one of the major titles on Crunchyroll's Fall 2021 lineup.
SAKUGAN is another highly-anticipated anime that's based on Nekotaru Inui's novel Sakugan Labyrinth Marker. The title is produced by Satelight and follows nine-year-old Memempu as she and her father embark on a journey to find her mother. The series will be simulcast on Crunchyroll starting October 7, 2021.
