Crunchyroll announced during its Crunchyroll Expo 2021 event that it will stream the upcoming anime Muv-Luv Alternative, The Faraway Paladin, The Strongest Sage With the Weakest Crest, Love of Kill, Skeleton Knight in Another World, and World’s End Harem.
Muv-Luv Alternative is scheduled to premiere on Japanese television in October 2021. The story is about humans who wage a long battle against the extraterrestrial species BETA, with humanoid weapons known as Tactical Surface Fighters.
The Faraway Paladin is scheduled to premiere in October 2021.
The story of The Faraway Paladin is described as:
In a city of the dead, long since ruined and far from human civilization, lives a single human child. His name is Will, and he’s being raised by three undead: the hearty skeletal warrior, Blood; the graceful mummified priestess, Mary; and the crotchety spectral sorcerer, Gus. The three pour love into the boy, and teach him all they know. But one day, Will starts to wonder: “Who am I?”
Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man’s land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin.
“I promised you. It’s gonna take a while, but I’ll tell you everything. This is the story of the deaths of many heroes. It’s the story of how we died, and it’s the reason you grew up here.”
Crunchyroll will simulcast The Strongest Sage With the Weakest Crest in January 2022.
The story of The Strongest Sage With the Weakest Crest is described as:
His strength limited by the magical crest with which he was born, Mathias, the world’s most powerful sage, decides reincarnation is necessary to become the strongest of all. Upon his rebirth as a young boy, Mathias is thrilled to discover he’s been born with the optimal crest for magical combat on his first try. Unfortunately, the world he’s been born into has abysmally poor standards when it comes to magic, and everyone thinks he’s still marked for failure. Now it’s up to Mathias to prove everyone wrong… world’s strongest sage-style.
Love of Kill is scheduled to premiere in 2022.
The story of Love of Kill is described as:
She’s a professional hitman. And he… is also a professional hitman. And she’s his target. Caught in a deadly game of cat- and-mouse, will she fall first… or will he?
The story of Skeleton Knight in Another World is described as:
One day, a gamer played video games until he fell asleep… and when he woke up, he found himself in the game world–as a skeleton. Equipped with the powerful weapons and armor of his avatar but stuck with its frightening skeletal appearance, Arc has to find a place for himself in this new, fantastical land. All his hopes for a quiet life are dashed when he crosses paths with a beautiful elven warrior, setting him on a journey full of conflict and adventure.
Crunchyroll will begin simulcasting the World’s End Harem anime in October 2021.
The story of World’s End Harem is described as:
The Man-Killer Virus: a lethal disease that has eradicated 99.9% of the world’s male population. Mizuhara Reito has been in cryogenic sleep for the past five years, leaving behind Tachibana Erisa, the girl of his dreams. When Reito awakens from the deep freeze, he emerges into a sex-crazed new world where he himself is the planet’s most precious resource. Reito and four other male studs are given lives of luxury and one simple mission: repopulate the world by impregnating as many women as possible. All Reito wants, however, is to find his beloved Erisa who went missing three years ago. Can Reito resist temptation and find his one true love?
