About Shangri-La Frontier

The anime is inspired by the Japanese webnovel Shangri-La Frontier, written by Katarina. It began its serialization on the Shosetuka ni Naro website in May 2017.

Although no printed version of the novel has been released, it has received a manga adaptation illustrated by Ryosuke Fuji.

The manga has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine since July 2020.

It also won the 47th Kodansha Manga Award in the shonen category in 2023.

The first season was animated by Studio C2C and ran for 25 episodes. The final episode aired on March 31, 2024.

Crunchyroll is currently streaming the series and describes it as:

When was the last time I played a game that wasn’t crap?” This is a world in the near future where games that use display screens are classified as retro.

Anything that can’t keep up with state-of-the-art VR technology is called a “crap game,” and you see a large number of crap games coming out. Those who devote their lives to clearing these games are called “crap-game hunters,” and Rakuro Hizutome is one of them.

The game he’s chosen to tackle next is Shangri-La Frontier, a “god-tier game” that has a total of thirty million players. Online friends… An expansive world… Encounters with rivals… These are changing Rakuro and all the other players’ fates!

The best game adventure tale by the strongest “crap game” player begins now!
