Leading global anime brand Crunchyroll premiered today the first trailer and new key art for Onyx Equinox — a mythology-fueled epic adventure joining the Crunchyroll Original series lineup. Produced by Crunchyroll Studios, the show is created by Sofia Alexander.
Onyx Equinox follows a young Aztec boy named Izel who is saved from death by the gods and is chosen to act as “humanity’s champion,” forced to discard his apathy toward his fellow man and prove humanity’s potential. The trailer gives fans a first look at Izel’s epic journey, which will take him across ancient Mesoamerica to save humanity from a war between the gods.
