Shangri-La Frontier Season 1 Episode 5 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where to Watch

Shangri-La Frontier Season 1 Episode 5

Shangri-La Frontier is a new fantasy and videogame anime based on a popular manga of the same name. It follows Rakurou Hizutome, an ordinary high-school boy obsessed with playing trash games. After finishing one of the worst he has ever played, he tries a good one instead and starts Shangri-La Frontier. It has a good comedic side and a lot of potential to be one of the funniest anime of the season.

What Happened In Episode 4?

Hizutome finds out he’s the only one who knows about the Rabituza palace’s unique scenario. There’s no information about Emul or Vysache on the game forums, so he wants it to be kept a secret. 

When he talks to Vysache, he doesn’t learn much about his objective or specific information about the scenario. However, he learns that the Vorpal Bunnie’s boss will train him, which might get him many buffs. To his surprise, before that, he gains a new restriction. Vysache forces him to equip an item that’ll halve the EXP Hizutome receives. Fortunately, it’ll make him receive 2.5x stat points when leveling up.

Hizutome leaves Shangri-La Frontier (SLF) for a bit and starts a trashy fighting game. There he battles and talks with Katzo, a friend who says he’ll probably start the god game too. Katzo also says there’s another person they know playing Shangri-La Frontier. We cut to them, Arthur Pencilgon, a powerful player with purple hair and a sign saying they kill other players.

When Hizutome goes back to SLF, he and Emul journey to the third town. Things seem to be going well, but then they reach the swamp where the area’s boss is. Mud Digger seems incredibly strong and a bad match-up for Sunraku, as the mud forces players to be in a walking state. That makes our protagonist lose his best skill, his speed.

We’ve got an episode recap with a review discussing everything that happens in Episode 4. You can check it out here:
