The Shangri La Frontier episode 21 release date has been confirmed and with that, the anime only stands at five remaining episodes to wrap up the first season. However, fans internationally are wondering where to watch this anime given its sudden rise in popularity and its deviation from traditional anime tropes and theories.

Viewers can watch the Shangri La Frontier anime on Crunchyroll with a paid subscription plan in both Japanese and English dubbed versions. However, users with a Crunchyroll premium subscription can also avail the anime from Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and Vudu with paid subscription plans.

Shangri La Frontier currently stands with a 4.9/5 rating on Crunchyroll, 8/10 on MyAnimeList, and 7.5/10 on IMDb. That being said, Shangri La Frontier has also received a lot of love on various user review platforms. Shangri-La Frontier may borrow the idea from a number of previous anime based on the online gaming world (such as Sword Art Online), but it distinguishes itself from the outset.

  • The humor is timed perfectly, with all of the quips derived from Sunraku’s “mischievous” nature looking great in the animation.
  • The action sequences are exhilarating but not so intense that we lose track of what’s occurring. For people who like action shows and video games, this is the ideal option.
  • The one thing people love about this anime is that it constantly reminds us that the characters are not completely immersed in the game or transported to another world, but rather have a touch with reality. This is despite the fact that the generic plot of the MC playing a VR game has been repeated in many anime series before, something that we usually explore in our newsletter at Spiel Anime.

Shangri La Frontier anime – a synopsis of the plot

  • Shangri La Frontier anime follows the life of Rakurou Hizutome, a high school student, who has an odd habit of playing badly designed games.
  • These are games that are either imbalanced or have so many bugs in them that they are nearly unplayable.
  • He goes as Sunraku in-game and to take a break from the awful games he has been playing lately, Rakurou is advised to play the well-liked virtual reality game Shangri-La Frontier as his next game.

Rakurou starts the game with only a pair of boxers, a bird mask, and a few guns after deciding to sell off most of his beginning gear in order to make additional cash. He methodically levels up his avatar but soon comes to the realization that he might have overestimated the difficulty that a mainstream game can provide after coming across some frightening beasts. Rakurou has to use every ability he has honed from his prior gaming experiences as he advances. Soon enough, Shangri-La Frontier is completely enthralled with Sunraku’s bizarre playstyle.
