Fena: Pirate Princess [Summer 2021] Anticipation



Quote:
The Toonami "panel" airing on Cartoon Network during the Adult Swim Con online event announced the new "Crunchyroll Originals" anime Fena: Pirate Princess in collaboration with Adult Swim on Sunday. The Crunchyroll and Adult Swim co-production will air on Adult Swim's Toonami block and stream on Crunchyroll in 2021.
Plot Summary:

Quote:
Fena: Pirate Princess is a 12 episode original anime series that tells the tale of a young orphan girl, Fena Houtman. Fena has been raised on an Island where there is no hope of becoming anything more than chattel, to be used and discarded by soldiers of the British Empire. But Fena is more than just another powerless orphan. When her mysterious past comes knocking, Fena will break the chains of her oppressors. Her goal: forge a new identity, free of bondage, and search for a place where she can truly belong and find out the true mysteries behind a keyword “Eden.” It is the story of a lifetime adventure she and her crew of misfits and unlikely allies will have, in pursuit of her goals

So...more period appropriate Bodacious Space Pirates? It's kind of funny the lead is styled after a Western pirate while her crew look to be all Japanese .

I'm hoping it will be a lot more interesting than that "CGDCT in space" nonsense of a show but the trailer really looks good and I like the grittier aesthetic.

I am annoyed that this is only a 12 episode project though.

I'll be honest, with that dark hair I thought she was another ninja at first .

Is the title sounding like Xena: Warrior Princess intentional?

I just assumed that is crew she brought from exile. She escaped to Japan, made allies there and brought them back to Europe for sweet revenge/justice.

I really wonder how she's going to win those guys over. Making allies is one thing, but she's clearly the captain here and they're her subordinates.

There's a scene in the trailer where she meets an old guy who I assume is the Ninja's lord or master so I assume she offers something in the West that's worth their time and he's impressed by her resolve (or something like that).

Yep, seems like that's the first thought occurring to most people.

You never know. May have intentionally ripped off the title there. Somehow I don't expect it to be as enjoyable as Xena, but might be worth a look.

So...the masked guy at the end is probably Yukimaru, right?

Guess I'll give this a shot come that date.

Also, am I the only one that is thinking of Xena: Warrior Princess when seeing that title?

Edit: This was a quick drop. I thought this was supposed to be about pirates. All I saw that episode were clowns and comedy.

First two episodes are out I thought it visually looks great (as expected from Production I.G.) the setting is interesting (fantasy Caribbean) but the story but the characters and story aren't doing much for me. Yukimaru being a violent tsundere is difficult to like.

I'll give it a few more episode see where it goes.

Saw the first two episodes and I loved it, not what I expected, but I welcome it.
