The upcoming Ragna Crimson anime adaptation revealed a new key visual and trailer earlier today. The anime will premiere on September 30 as a one-hour special.

Ai Fairouz and Junichi Suwabe commented on their roles. Ai Fairouz, who voices Slime, spoke about her character:
This title has extremely unique characters starting with Crimson, but the Slime is one of the strange characters. The story is pretty serious, with Ragna going through a lot of agony and having his precious things taken away. But the Slime brightens up the scene with its non-conforming character. I believe its charm is where he just keeps his own pace, and I tried to express that!
“You stupid hoomans, watch the show or else!” (saying in character)
Suwabe had a similar comment:
Woltekamui is very very strong. He will appear later in the show as an extraordinarily strong enemy that confronts Ragna and his friends. I look forward to see how the fierce battle scenes in the manga will be shown in the anime. Oh, just in case, this “strong enemy” never becomes a comrade. He’s a real bad guy! Please look forward to the anime “Ragna Crimson!”
