Fate/Grand Order Smartphone Game Gets Both TV Anime, Anime Film Projects
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Aniplex opened a website on Sunday to announce that its Fate/Grand Order smartphone game is inspiring two new anime projects.
The Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majū Sensen Babylonia television anime will adapt the "Dai Nana Tokuiten Zettai Majū Sensen Babylonia" (Order VII: The Absolute Frontline in the War Against the Demonic Beasts: Babylonia) story from the game and will premiere in 2019.
Fate/Grand Order Shinsei Entaku Ryōiki Camelot: Wandering: Agateram and Fate/Grand Order Shinsei Entaku Ryōiki Camelot: Paladin: Agateram will be a two-part anime film project, and will adapt the "Dai Roku Tokuiten Shinsei Entaku Ryōiki: Camelot" (Order VI: The Sacred Round Table Realm: Camelot) story from the game.

Aniplex had launched a survey in January to ask about what quest was fans' favorite, and what developments they'd like to see for the franchise. The Babylonia story ranked #1 and the Camelot story ranked #2 for favorite quest, and "TV anime" ranked #1 and "anime film" ranked #2 for the developments question.
The website for the two projects also revealed the main staff. Kinoko Nasu and Type-Moon are credited as original creators of both works.
CloverWorks (DARLING in the FRANXX, Persona 5 The Animation) is producing the television anime series, with lead character designer Takashi Takeuchi (Fate anime franchise). Toshifumi Akai (assistant director DARLING in the FRANXX, Porter Robinson's "Shelter" director) is directing the series, with assistant director Miyuki Kuroki (The [email protected] SideM director). Tomoaki Takase (Occultic;Nine, Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) is the character designer. Keita Haga (Fate/Stay night theme song lyrics) and Ryo Kawasaki (Fate/Grand Order: First Order) are composing the music.
Production I.G. is producing the film project, with lead character designer Takashi Takeuchi (Fate anime franchise) and composers Keita Haga (Fate/Stay night theme song lyrics) and Hideyuki Fukasawa (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works).
A stage play, titled Fate/Grand Order The Stage: Shinsei Entaku Ryōiki Camelot Replica; Agateram (Fate/Grand Order The Stage: Domain of the Holy Round Table Camelot Replica; Agateram), ran in Tokyo in July 2017, and then again in September and October. That play adapted the same Order VI story that the theatrical anime will adapt. A new stage play in January 2019 will adapt the same Order VII story that the television anime will adapt.
