Fate/Grand Order: First Order Anime Preview

So the Fate series is back with their new anime Fate/Grand Order: First Order coming soon. Each series is based off a jrpg game and manga with the same name and characters. So you have: Fate/Zero; Fate/Stay Night; Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works and not in that exact order.

It’s produced by Aniplex, Notes, Type-Moon and Ufotable and so many more have worked on the series. Kinoko Nasu is the original creator for each entity of the Fate series. Kenji Kawai has done the music for the series forever and he’s done the music for most of the best shows in anime. His work dates all the way back to anime in the 80’s, the big one for me is the music from Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Oh, my there is some great music in that show.

Each Fate series centers around the fight to win the one ultimate wish called, “The Holy Grail.” Generations of families that practice magic have fought in the war, some no longer existing at all. Typically, Masters don’t fight alone, they can summon a servant/ to assist them. Servants are usually some historical figure/heroic spirit; fictional and non-fictional. The catch is there are only a few classes of each servant and you get one. The classes are: Archer, Saber, Caster, Lancer, Rider, Assassin, Berserker typically. The master and servant feed off each other’s magic level and the stronger the better. It’s an awesome series and I love each one. Catch it on Crunchyroll 12/31. They do have a linear connection so watch in the correct order.

Fate/Grand Order: First Order is set in the year 2015, during the final era over which magic still held a strong influence. The humanity survival and security organization Chaldea was established to observe the world that can only be seen by magic and the world that can only be measured by science; as well as to prevent the final extinction of humanity.

Thanks to the efforts of many researchers, the path of human history has been ensured for 100 years into the future. However, without warning, the realm of the future that was under constant observation by Chaldea vanished. The extinction of humanity in 2017 was observed—no, confirmed.

The apparent cause of the extinction was in the Japanese city of Fuyuki in 2004. In that city, there was an “unobservable realm” which had never existed until now.

Chaldea issued the Grand Order for a “Holy Grail Expedition,” to investigate, uncover, and possibly destroy the singularity that apparently will cause the extinction of humanity.
