Crunchyroll has announced two more entries in its spring lineup, including Shadowverse and the long rumored Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – The Frozen Bond. Along with the announcement, Crunchyroll has provided key art, trailers and synopses.

Shadowverse is based on a mobile collectible card game of the same name, originally launched in Japan in 2016 by Cygames – the same folks behind the smash franchise, Granblue Fantasy and Rage of Bahamut.

Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World – The Frozen Bond, meanwhile is the franchise’s second OVA, which was announced in September of 2018. It adapts a prequel novel that was included with purchases of the first Japanese Blu-Ray collection of the series and follows the story of Emilia and Puck’s meeting. This announcement is also hot off the recent news that the franchise’s second season will also be airing on Crunchyroll this July.

Meeting new rivals, facing major tournaments, forging bonds with friends… Shadowverse leads Hiiro to all sorts of new experiences, all that serve to “evolve” him…”
