Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Opening
YOASOBI performs Frieren’s opening theme, “Yūsha” (Hero). Both the opening sequence and a music video for the song were released. Check them out below.
The first four episodes of the anime are available on Crunchyroll. They describe the series as follows:
The mage Frieren defeated the Demon King alongside the hero Himmel’s party after a 10-year quest. Peace was restored to the kingdom. Because she is an elf, she is able to live over a thousand years. She promises Himmel and the others that she will be back to see them and then sets out on a journey by herself. Fifty years later, Frieren goes to visit Himmel and the others.
She remained unchanged, but Himmel and the others have aged and only a little of their lives remain. Later, she witnesses Himmel’s death. Frieren is pained by her desire to have spent more time getting to know people. With that regret in her heart, she then goes on a journey to do just that. On her journey, she meets many people and many events await her.
The next episode will air on October 6. The series will run until March 2024. Lastly, Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End is available now on Crunchyroll. Additionally, the original manga series is available for purchase on Viz Media. The anime’s staff will reveal more information about the coming episodes over the coming days.
