Anime Crimes Division is returning for a second season. The popular web series stars Riley Rose Critchlow and YouTuber SungWon “ProZD” Cho and is produced as a collaborative effort between RocketJump and Crunchyroll.
In the exclusive clip above, RocketJump co-founder and Anime Crimes Division director Freddie Wong talks about what viewers can expect to see in the show’s new season. Full warning, if you haven’t watched Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood yet, the above clip contains a spoiler of one of the more prominent character deaths in the series. Some of the other trailers for Anime Crimes Division showcase the same death scene so if you don’t want to be spoiled, watch Brotherhood first.
Crunchyroll’s synopsis of the second season is as follows: “Detectives Joe Fuyara and Diesel are back for a second season, working to solve a series of anime-inspired crimes taking place in Neo Otaku City. In order to do so, Joe and Diesel must defeat TOXIC: a terrorist group from nearby Prestige City who want to steal all the anime from Neo Otaku City because they don’t believe anyone else is worthy. Joe and Diesel battle these evil terrorists in order to restore order to Neo Otaku City, and ensure anime is still something for everyone to enjoy.”
Anime Crimes Division Season 2 begins airing today on Crunchyroll and new episodes will go live every Friday. The season is composed of six episodes. Season 2 moves away from the villain of the week formula the show used in the first season, and is instead structured like a segmented film with one overarching plot.
