FreakAngels

Today, Crunchyroll, the global anime brand, revealed the premiere date and key visual for FreakAngels, a new Crunchyroll Original series based on the hit, post-apocalyptic graphic novel series of the same name. The full series will premiere on January 27 on Crunchyroll across 200 countries and territories, with subtitles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Russian, and Arabic.

The series is set in Whitechapel, London’s last neighborhood after a calamity struck the world years before, and follows the “FreakAngels,” a small group of psychically-powered friends as they protect each other and what’s left of humanity.

All nine episodes of the series will be available to stream starting January 27. Hiroshi Shimizu (MEGALOBOX, Blue Exorcist, Lupin III) is on board as Character Designer with Osamu Masuyama serving as Art Director (Made in Abyss, Studio Ghibli).

The synopsis for FreakAngels is: Welcome to Whitechapel: the last bastion of humanity. Six years ago, the world “ended” in a single, apocalyptic event, trapping Great Britain behind a mysterious dome of purple energy. London’s last neighborhood has persevered thanks to the protection of the “FreakAngels” — a small group of psychically-powered twenty-three-year-olds. Their fragile peace becomes threatened, however, when an exiled friend returns, exposing past conspiracies and new conflicts within their fractured, makeshift family. Can Whitechapel survive?
