Crunchyroll will stream both anime worldwide outside of Asia this fall
Crunchyroll announced at its panel at the Japan Expo 2023 event in Paris on Saturday that it will stream the Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End and A Girl & Her Guard Dog anime. Crunchyroll also announced it will stream the Berserk of Gluttony anime worldwide outside of Asia and India, and the The Demon Prince of Momochi House anime worldwide outside of Asia.
Crunchyroll will stream Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End worldwide outside of Asia starting on September 29. Crunchyroll describes the series:
The mage Frieren defeated the Demon King alongside the hero Himmel’s party after a 10-year quest. Peace was restored to the kingdom. Because she is an elf, she is able to live over a thousand years. She promises Himmel and the others that she will be back to see them and then sets out on a journey by herself. Fifty years later, Frieren goes to visit Himmel and the others. She remained unchanged, but Himmel and the others have aged and only a little of their lives remain. Later, she witnesses Himmel’s death. Frieren is pained by her desire to have spent more time getting to know people. With that regret in her heart, she then goes on a journey to do just that. On her journey, she meets many people and many events await her.
The anime will premiere in Japan on September 29 with a two-hour special.
