Prince of Stride: Alternative began airing January 5 and will have a total of 12 episodes. Based on an otome game (released by Kadokawa Games for the PlayStation Vita), FUNimation describes the plot of the anime adaptation as:
“From MADHOUSE, the studio behind Death Note and One-Punch Man, comes a fast-paced sports anime about Stride—a mix between competitive relay races and parkour. Nana and her classmate, Takeru, are desperate to resurrect their school’s Stride Club, but if they want to recruit their wildly fast (but reckless) classmate Riku, they’ll have to catch him first.”
The franchise has, in addition to a game and an anime, a visual novel series written and illustrated by many authors as well as a drama CD and a manga side story titled Prince of Stride: Galaxy Rush. Kadokawa published the fourth visual novel on August 21.
New simulcast episodes of Prince of Stride: Alternative air Tuesdays at 11 a.m. (ET), while the broadcast dub episodes will be available for your viewing pleasure on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. (ET).
