Granblue Fantasy The Animation is set for launch in January of 2017. Alongside the announcement of the broadcast dates, the key visual and first promotional video for the upcoming series have also been released, and it’s been confirmed that Bump of Chicken’s “Go” will be the show’s opening theme.
Granblue Fantasy The Animation is an adaptation of the social game being co-produced by Aniplex and Cygames. The first key visual and broadcast information were revealed at Cygames NEXT 2016.
Granblue Fantasy is a top performing social game planned, developed, and operated by Cygames and has over 12 million registered users. The game features character design by Hideo Minaba and a musical score by Nobuo Uematsu plus beautiful illustrations, theme songs, and A-list voice actors, so it’s no surprise it’s proved such a big hit with fans. It’s not just a game anymore, though - the franchise has expanded into novels, merchandising, and internet radio. Now it’s set to add TV anime to the list from January 2017 with A-1 Pictures handling the production and Yuuki Itoh directing.
Broadcasts begin from January 2017
