Crunchyroll to stream K-Pop superhero show Bastions this weekend

What’s better than K-Pop and anime? An animated series featuring some of the hottest K-Pop stars! South Korean producer Thymos Media has created Bastions, a five-part series, which will begin streaming each Saturday on Crunchyroll, starting May 13th, 2023.

“Crunchyroll has an extraordinary opportunity to introduce fans to more animation styles from Asia, and this exciting new series from Korea does just that. And having the music of so many K-pop stars really broadens the appeal of Bastions,” as quoted by Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer of Crunchyroll.

Bastions features the world famous group BTS with a soundtrack using music by Le Sserafim, Heize and AleXa. BTS specially created the song used as the main theme for the show, the first since the June 2022 release of “Proof.”

In the show, a group of young superheroes look to make it big next to others with the same goal. They become actual heroes upon unmasking the villain whose actions have threatened the planet.

“BTS is expected to provide an overwhelming sense of immersion to the emotions and action scenes of the series by singing the theme song in perfect harmony,” according to Thymos Media.

Bastions is available to fans outside of China, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, North Korea and South Korea.
