Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash premiered on January 10 and Funimation has been streaming the series with English subtitles.
Funimation describes the story:
From A-1 Pictures, the studio behind Fairy Tail and Sword Art Online: When Haruhiro awakens, he's in the dark surrounded by people who have no memory of where they came from or how they got there. As the darkness fades, a fantastic new world called “Grimgar” appears before them and their adventure begins—but first, they'll have to choose their guild, class, and special abilities.
The series is based on Ao Jūmonji's Hai to Gensō no Grimgar (or Grimgar le Monde des cendres et de fantaisie) light novel series. Ryosuke Nakamura (Aiura director and scriptwriter, Mōryō no Hako director) is directing and writing the scripts at A-1 Pictures. Tomotaka Shibayama is serving as assistant director with Kazuyuki Asaga and Ken Baba as key animators, and Mieko Hosoi (Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū, Psychic School Wars) is designing the characters. Hidetoshi Kaneko is directing the art, and Takahiro Mogi is the color key artist. Shinichi Igarashi is the director of photography, and Aya Hida is editing.
The first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of the television anime series will include a 10-minute OVA. The release will ship in Japan on March 16.
