New anime series, created by Sofia Alexander, will premiere later this summer.
Crunchyroll has just released the first trailer for Onyx Equinox, created by Sofia Alexander, a new anime series that’s part of the extensive Crunchyroll Originals slate of projects coming to the platform in 2020. The series builds upon Crunchyroll’s global anime collection of more than 1,000 titles and 30,000 episodes currently available on the platform. This inaugural slate was curated using more than 10 years of viewership data, paired with Crunchyroll’s deep connection to the anime community. These series will also premiere throughout the year, to complement Crunchyroll’s robust seasonal anime slate.
In this Crunchyroll Studios Production, “Onyx Equinox,” a young Aztec boy is saved from death by the gods and chosen to act as “humanity’s champion.” He is forced to discard his apathy toward his fellow man and prove humanity’s potential in a fight that spans across fantastical-yet-authentic Mesoamerican cultures. The series will premiere summer 2020.
