Crunchyroll Announces 3 New Anime Series

Leading anime platform to stream ‘The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World,’ ‘By the Grace of the Gods Season 2,’ and ‘Revenger starting this coming January.

Crunchyroll made some exciting announcements at New York Comic Con last week, revealing three new series coming to the streamer:  The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World, By the Grace of the Gods Season 2, and Revenger.  The first two are set to stream this coming January, while the last, Crunchyroll states, is “coming soon.”

With Cloud Hearts producing, The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World follows the Iceblade Sorcerer-- the most powerful sorcerer in the world. The one who inherited this title, Ray White, struggles to deal with his own immense power. After fighting in the Far East War, his last accomplishment, he vanished from the battlefield along with a deeply scarred psyche. Three years have passed since then, and Ray has enrolled at the Arnold Academy of Magic, a school attended by elite sorcerers from around the world. Ray is the first "Ordinary" to attend this academy since it was founded, so he's greeted by looks of scorn and contempt from its noble-born students. And now, he and the priceless friends he has found there are about to become entangled in multiple schemes. So begins the story of the most powerful sorcerer's school life filled with both friendship and hardship.

Maho Film returns to produce the second season of By the Grace of the Gods.  In Season 2, only 39 years into a life full of bad luck, Ryoma Takebayashi passes away in his sleep! Taking pity on him, three divine beings show compassion by reincarnating him as a young boy to a magical, new world. Now he spends his time researching and caring for slimes. But after healing an injured traveler, Ryoma decides to set out with his new friends on a journey to use his power to help others.

In the Nitroplus produced Revenger, as master assassin Usui Yuen looks into a series of assassinations made on the grand samurai clan, the Satsuma, he encounters Kurima Raizo, member and survivor of one of the attacks. Together, they discover the true nature of these murders is bigger than over stolen resources. As they get closer to the truth, will they come out alive to exact revenge?
