We learned way back in February 2018 that the folks at Cygames are advancing another one of their properties to the anime side with an adaptation announced for Princess Connect! Re:Dive. With the series underway and Crunchyroll having picked up streaming rights, the 8th episode is coming up on May 25th, 2020 and the first preview for it has arrived.
Crunchyroll’s pickup of the series has it set for a same-day simulcast at 12:30 pm ET for their members. Availability is set for audiences in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
The show has Takaomi Kanasaki directing based on the series composition from Cygames Pictures group. Lie Jun Yang and Yasuyuki Noda are working on the character designs for it.
