Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End is a very interesting premise for an anime. The best way to explain this anime adaptation of the manga of the same name by Kanehito Yamada is this: you know how the typical fantasy RPG has an elf character in it? One whose lifespan far exceeds everyone else in the party? Well, this anime is basically what if the story takes place after the main RPG story is over and done with, and it stars that elf character. As it turns out, that creates a dramatic tearjerker of a story when the elf realizes that her lifespan far exceeds that of her friends. Don’t believe me? Then check out the anime’s official trailer below, and thus also wonder where all the immortal onion ninjas suddenly came from.

Want a better idea of what this fantasy story is about? Well, Crunchyroll has an official synopsis for Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End for us to peruse. You can check that out below:

The mage Frieren defeated the Demon King alongside the hero Himmel’s party after a 10-year quest. Peace was restored to the kingdom. Because she is an elf, she is able to live over a thousand years. She promises Himmel and the others that she will be back to see them and then sets out on a journey by herself. Fifty years later, Frieren goes to visit Himmel and the others. She remained unchanged, but Himmel and the others have aged and only a little of their lives remain. Later, she witnesses Himmel’s death. Frieren is pained by her desire to have spent more time getting to know people. With that regret in her heart, she then goes on a journey to do just that. On her journey, she meets many people and many events await her.
