With the Stone Wars over, the former members of Tsukasa’s Empire of Might join forces with the Kingdom of Science to build a ship capable of sailing across the open ocean to seek answers to the mystery of the global petrification. However, before they can begin their voyage, Senku and his friends need to find some key resources and push some new scientific advancements to build the type of vessel they need.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2
The first episode of The Ancient Magus’ Bride season two is available now on Crunchyroll.

Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man wielding strange powers with the head of a beast obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again.
This is a story about saving yourself to save another.
