As reported by the Anime News Network, “High Guardian Spice” will premiere on October 26, 2021, with all 12 episodes from the first season available at once. Since it’s a Crunchyroll Original series, it will be available on Crunchyroll’s streaming platform.
As reported by The News Motion, Crunchyroll first announced the anime-inspired series in April 2018, and originally planned to release it in the spring of the following year. The first previews highlighted the show’s diversity, including an all-female writer’s room. Almost immediately, “High Guardian Spice” was met with backlash from certain corners of the Internet, but ComicBook.com reported in March of 2019 that most Crunchyroll fans were excited about the project.
Series creator Raye Rodriguez announced on Twitter in November 2019 that the series had finished production, but there was still no word then when it might premiere. Crunchyroll then shared a few seconds of footage in February 2020, but the premiere date wasn’t announced until early October 2021.
