FENA PRINCESS PIRATE Gets Release Date for August on Crunchyroll and Adult Swim.
Fena: Pirate Princess is an upcoming anime series from Crunchyroll and Adult Swim that stars a swashbuckling samurai and is inspired by Shojo manga. It was recently announced that the highly anticipated series will premiere on August 14 with two episodes. The English dubbed series will air on Adult Swim while the subtitled version will stream via Crunchyroll. The series is created and directed by Kazuto Nakazawa with the animation being done by Production I.G. I’m excited to check out this series.
Fena Houtman remembers little about her childhood. Orphaned and raised as a servant in a brothel, her life changes when she escapes to an island of pirates where she discovers the truth behind her family. With Fena being the only one able to unlock her family’s secrets, and a formidable crew of female pirates on her tail, she must take her place as captain of her Samurai crew for a high seas adventure!
To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer, key art, and additional new images were all revealed. Here’s a list of the characters and their English cast members:
