Aniplex of America describes the anime:
The year is AD 2017
The last era in which magecraft still thrived.
The Chaldea Security Organization was founded to focus on preserving the continuation of human history. They observe a world which magecraft couldn't observe and science couldn't measure all to prevent the certain extinction of humanity. But one day, the future that Chaldea continued to observe disappears and humanity's extinction in 2019 becomes clear. Rather, it had already happened.
The cause seems to be related to Fuyuki, a provincial town in Japan, in the year AD 2004. There, an “unobservable region” that had not existed before appears.
Based on the assumption that Fuyuki is the reason for humanity's extinction, Chaldea issues an order to explore, investigate, and possibly destroy this singularity – a quest for the Holy Grail: the Grand Order.
The 74-minute television anime aired in Japan on December 31. Aniplex of America, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the special the same day.
The anime is based on the Fate/Grand Order smartphone game. Aniplex released the game in Japan in summer 2015 and it has been downloaded more than 9 million times. The game is getting an English release in the United States and Canada on June 25.
