ONYX EQUINOX: With Its Premiere This Weekend The Show's Creator Has Something Special To Say

The mesoamerican adventure story Onyx Equinox is coming to Crunchyroll this weekend, and the series creator has something to say to the new viewers. Hit the jump to check it out!

Crunchyroll has been hard at work delivering some of the best anime to the world, and now that they have gained such a strong fanbase with their content, they have ventured into hte world of original programming. Some of the new originals that have been released so far include Tower of God, The God of High School, and Jujutsu Kaisen.

While the streaming service doesn't completely create these shows, there is one coming this weekend that is sure to turn heads. Onyx Equinox is a brand new series centered around a mesoamerican society and a young boy who must save all of humankind. The show is as violet as some of their best anime and has the heart to match it.

With the show premiering on the service this Saturday, creator, and showrunner Sofia Alexander had this to say; "For anime fans, I want them to view Onyx Equinox the way they experienced some of their first anime, like, for example, Naruto or Inu-Yasha. Both those series are deeply connected with Japanese culture, history, and mythology. Even if you know nothing about Japanese culture, you connect with the characters and their emotions and struggles, and you become more familiar as you watch and become more interested in learning about those things. I hope that you have the same draw to mesoamerican culture as well. For fans of Western animation, I hope they see the appeal of action-drama animation for adults. For Mexican fans, I hope they feel at home watching this series and recognize some of the locations we visit. Lots of Latin Americans grew up on anime, so I hope they feel seen in some way by this series and feel inspired to tell their own stories from their own experiences.

With so many influences injected into the new show, it will be exciting to see how everything comes together this weekend. Make sure to check out some of the show's trailers, and don't forget to share your thoughts in the comments!


 

 

The gods are at war for the future of humanity, and an Aztec boy named Izel finds himself caught in the middle of their dangerous game. In order to save humankind, he must complete an impossible task--closing the five gates to the underworld. Izel reluctantly agrees, but only after learning his quest will also correct a terrible tragedy. 
 

His journey to become humanity’s champion will be one of hope and despair, of trust and betrayal, where Izel must confront his own darkness and decide if the human race--with all its flaws and contradictions--is worth saving.

 
Onyx Equinox premieres on Crunchyroll on November 21 at 1 PM PT
