Even though the future of original adult animation on Crunchyroll looks bleak following the departure of former adult animation exec Marisa Balkus who has since headed to Netflix, the fruits of her labor are still coming with the likes of Blade Runner and Shenmue getting showcased the other day for Adult Swim, Crunchyroll has also revealed a new series called FreakAngels which is slated to arrive sometime next year.
Welcome to Whitechapel: last bastion of humanity. Six years ago, the world “ended” in a single, apocalyptic event, trapping Great Britain behind a mysterious dome of purple energy. London’s last neighborhood has persevered thanks to the protection of the “FreakAngels” — a small group of psychically-powered twenty-three-year-olds. Their fragile peace becomes threatened, however, when an exiled friend returns, exposing past conspiracies and new conflicts within their fractured, makeshift family. Can Whitechapel survive?
