The TV anime “Shangri-La Frontier” announced that the broadcast will start in October 2023. The first key visual and trailer have been released.

“Shangri-La Frontier” is a “game x fantasy” adventure set in the near future where games that use display screens are classified as retro.
The story follows Hizutome Rakuro, also known as Sunraku, a “trash-game hunter” who has devoted his passion to clearing “trash games” whose contents have not caught up with the latest VR technology. One day, Sunraku challenges “Shangri-La Frontier,” a “god-tier game” that has a total of 30 million players.

The official website announced that the anime will be broadcast in October and released the first key visual and trailer.
The visual depicts Sunraku/Hizutome Rakuro (CV. Uchida Yuuma) in the center, Arthur Pencilgon/Amane Towa (CV. Hikasa Youko) and Emul (CV. Hidaka Rina) on the left, and Oicazzo/ Uomi Kei (CV. Koichi Makoto) and Saiga 0/Saiga Rei (CV. Waki Azumi) on the right. As the title suggests, each of them is looking forward with a “challenge” expression on their faces.

The first PV also shows Sunraku’s “real face,” new game images not seen in the project trailer, encounters with enemies, Oicazzo’s battle scenes, and a new character. The beautiful images will surely make the fan’s heart race.

Moreover, the first key visual will be displayed as a giant advertisement at “AnimeJapan 2023” on March 25 and 26, so be sure to check it out when you attend the event.

“Shangri-La Frontier” will begin broadcasting in October 2023, and we look forward to hearing more soon.
