Fena: Pirate Princess will follow Fena Houtman, a young orphan who is on the run from pirates and the English Navy after her parents are killed. In her journey, she’ll partner up with the samurai as she searches for her family’s treasure and tries to avoid getting captured.
The series will last 12 episodes, and comes with a lot of anticipation, as the production studio behind it has worked on titles like Ghost in the Shell as well as the first three seasons of Attack on Titan in the past. Directed by Kazuto Nakazawa (who also provided the original story alongside Production I.G.) and produced by Rui Kuroki, Fena: Pirate Princess stems from a screenplay from Asako Kuboyama, with music by Yuki Kajiura.
