Sentai Snaps Up “Ragna Crimson” Anime Series for 2023
HOUSTON, TX — July 2, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Ragna Crimson, the action-packed fantasy anime adaptation of the manga by Daiki Kobayashi. Tentatively planned as a 2023 simulcast, the series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE and its anime-focused streaming services.
Dragons reign terror over the earth, sea and sky. If sworn dragon hunters like Ragna are to have any hope of dealing death to these seemingly invincible, fire-breathing beasts, they must find a way to level the odds. Ragna teams up with a mysterious man named Crimson who has likewise sworn to stand against the dragons menacing the world. But although Crimson’s motivations may be mysterious, his goal and Ragna’s perfectly align, and together they’ll fight to vanquish the dragons once and for all.
The manga series upon which the anime is based is published in Square Enix’s monthly Gangan Joker magazine, which has previously published hit titles such as Akame ga Kill!, Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side: Sword Oratoria and The Case Study of Vanitas.
Ragna Crimson will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE in 2023 (tentative) with a home video release to follow.
