Crunchyroll has announced that it will stream the theatrical anime based on Tite Kubo’s Burn The Witch one-shot and serialized manga in October 2020 in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.
Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.
The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.
The anime will have event screenings that will open in Japan on October 2, 2020. The anime will also stream worldwide starting on October 2, 2020.
This year’s 38th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced that the streamed version will be “an edited version where the content will be a little different from the version that will screen [in Japanese theaters].” It was later stated by the MoCa News website that the anime will be reorganized into three episodes for the streaming version.
