Crunchyroll’s January 2024 Lineup

-

Crunchyroll has a packed lineup ready to go for the start of 2024. 25 shows are planned to debut in the next few weeks, and this isn’t counting the existing shows that will be continuing with new episodes.

We’ve already told you about Solo Leveling, the adaption of the hit Korean manhwa coming January 6. But there’s also Metallic Rouge, the new sci-fi series from Carole & Tuesday director Motonobu Hori and Cowboy Bebop character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto. It’s about two partners who are tasked with tracking down a group of rogue androids who are in revolt against their government. The series is animated by Studio BONES and will premiere January 10.

Then there’s the isekai Sasaki and Peeps, about a sad-sack middle-aged office drone who buys a bird from the pet store, only to find it’s actually a powerful mage that takes him to another world. Also look for new episodes of Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End and the start of a new arc in One Piece.

Crunchyroll’s full list of premieres for January is listed below.

Bind…
