FreakAngels Premiere Date Announced by Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll announced today the premiere date for their Crunchyroll Originals series FreakAngles. The series is set to premiere on their streaming service starting on January 27., 2022.

The series is set in Whitechapel, London’s last neighborhood after a calamity struck the world years before, and follows the “FreakAngels,” a small group of psychically-powered friends as they protect each other and what’s left of humanity.

All nine episodes of the series will be available to stream starting January 27. Hiroshi Shimizu (MEGALOBOX, Blue Exorcist, Lupin III) is on board as Character Designer with Osamu Masuyama serving as Art Director (Made in Abyss, Studio Ghibli). 

Crunchyroll describes FreakAngels as follows:

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?

The series has already won several awards including:

  • Named one of the “50 Best Non-Superhero Graphic Novels” by Rolling Stone
  • Won “Favourite Web-Based Comic” Eagle Award in 2010 and 2012
  • Nominated for “Best Comic/Graphic Novel” British Fantasy Award in 2010
