The first episode of the TV anime series Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood was released on Hulu in Japan and Crunchyroll outside of Japan on March 30.
The series is being promoted at train stations in Tokyo
Crunchyroll describes the series: “The year is 1931. Prince Tokugawa Yoshinobu holds absolute control over Japan. Remnants of the Meiji era’s culture can be seen around the city, but scientific technology and Japanese esoteric cosmology Onmyodo are also developing. Yet lurking behind the glitz is Kuchinawa, a dissident group planning the assassination of the prince. Tasked to extinguish these dissidents is Nue, the government’s secret executioner group. Sawa Yukimura, who works for this organization, suffered at the hands of the Kuchinawa boss. Her entire family was murdered and she dedicated her life to avenging their death.”
The opening theme and ending themes EXIST and Embrace of light are both performed by RAISE A SUILEN.
