Crunchyroll announce new shows at Japan Expo 2022

Written by Ross Locksley on 18 Jul 2022

As Japan Expo rages in Paris, Crunchyroll have used the event to announce a slew of new shows, some of which have us very excited indeed!

Shangri-La Frontier

When was the last time I played a game that wasn't crap?" This is a world in the near future where games that use display screens are classified as retro. Anything that can't keep up with state-of-the-art VR technology is called a 'crap game,' and you see a large number of crap games coming out. Those who devote their lives to clearing these games are called 'crap-game hunters,' and Rakuro Hizutome is one of them. The game he's chosen to tackle next is Shangri-La Frontier, a 'god-tier game' that has a total of thirty million players. Online friends, an expansive world, encounters with rivals - these are changing Rakuro and all the other players' fates. The best game adventure tale by the strongest 'crap game' player begins now.


Skip and Loafer

Iwakura Mitsumi graduated from a small middle school in the countryside and entered a top-tier high school in Tokyo at the head of the class. This child prodigy, who moved to Tokyo alone with a perfect life plan, is smart and gets good grades... but her social understanding isn't quite on the same wavelength as others. This means that she sometimes makes mistakes, but her easygoing nature sways her classmates little by little, and all their different personalities are coming together before they know it. They meet and gradually come to know each other, and before long they understand each other well. Everyone experiences pent-up feelings and frustrations, but it is our friends who give us a chance at mutual understanding. This story may start out with some discord, but it becomes a happy school life comedy before you know it!


Muv Luv Alternative

Muv Luv Alternative

A story of the bonds between those who fight, in a world pushed to its limits. On one of the countless parallel worlds that exist throughout spacetime, humanity has fought a decades-long war against the BETA, hostile extraterrestrial invaders, using humanoid fighting machines called Tactical Surface Fighters. This is a story of how humanity lives and dies while on the brink of extinction. 


Don't Toy With Me Miss Nagatoro 2nd Attack


Senpai visits the library after school and becomes the target of a sadistic schoolgirl. The name of the girl who teases, torments, and tantalises Senpai is Nagatoro.  She's an annoying pain in the neck, but somehow strangely adorable too.
