First Episode of Frieren is 2-Hour long, okay, maybe not exactly two hours on the dot, it has been announced that the first episode of Frieren will have a two-hour screening, excluding commercials, so the actual runtime of the episode should be around one hour and a few minutes.
First Episode of Frieren is 2-Hour long
The official profile of the Frieren anime has released details about the special, which premieres on September 29th. Below you can check out the anime’s PV::
The reason for this two-hour premiere is likely the same as the first episode of Oshi no Ko, which has a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes – it serves to showcase the essence of the story right from the start.
So this is likely the same reason they decided to do the same thing with Frieren, as the beginning of Frieren can benefit greatly from a 2-hour episode. I highly recommend this anime; I read the manga, and it’s really good.
