The landmark adult-oriented nighttime programming block Adult Swim, home to Robot Chicken and Rick and Morty, held their first Adult Swim Convention! The free virtual event began Thursday, July 23 and ran through Saturday, July 25.

During the virtual convention Saturday night, Adult Swim made a special announcement. They have teamed up with the world’s most popular anime brand Crunchyroll to bring anime fans and Adult Swim viewers an all-new anime titled Fena: Pirate Princess.
