GRANBLUE FANTASY is a highly popular smartphone app that boasts more than 12 million users.
This time, MANGA.TOKYO has found out that GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation will be broadcast from Spring 2017.
GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation, the anime series adapted from GRANBLUE FANTASY, will be handled by A-1 Pictures, the outstanding anime studio best known for Blue Exorcist and Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day.
We also have the newly-revealed second PV to share. The anime features a pretty unusual drawing style using contrastive outlines for the characters. This non-digital approach is what makes the anime look so distinctive. Also, we can’t overlook the rich line-up of the voice cast that includes Rie Kugimiya and Yukari Tamura.

This is a celestial world with countless islands floating in the skies. A boy named Gran from the island of mystery, Zanktinzel, and a talking lizard with wings named Vyrn, one day encounter a girl named Lyria.
