It is rare to find someone who knows any pirate anime besides One Piece. Although the genre is rare in and of itself, it’s even harder to find one with a female protagonist, that is until now.

Crunchyroll and Adult Swim’s original anime, Fena: Pirate Princess, will premiere on 14th August 2021. The anime will debut with a special two-episode premiere on Crunchyroll (subbed version) and Adult Swim (dubbed version).

The announcement was followed up with the release of a new trailer.

The trailer begins with Fena reminiscing about her childhood on her wedding day. She remembers being on a Ship before being attacked and sent off alone in a rescue boat.

She is then rescued by a mysterious man who reveals how her father entrusted her with a mysterious stone before his death. He then sets her up with a ship and a band of warriors to accompany her on the journey to solve the mystery of the transparent stone.

According to the director of the anime, we should expect a mix of shounen and shoujo elements in the story. It is hard to see how that will actually happen, but we are always in for a pleasant surprise.

For those who are intrigued by stories of adventure, especially ones including the sea, this should be on your radar.
