Granblue Fantasy Anime's 2nd Video Reveals Spring Delay, January Preview Special
The official website for the anime of Cygames' Granblue Fantasy smartphone game began streaming the anime's second promotional video on Sunday. The video reveals that the Granblue Fantasy the Animation series' premiere has been delayed from January to Spring. However, a Zankutinzeru-Hen (Zankutinzeru Arc) special will debut on the Tokyo MX television station and AbemaTV streaming service in Japan on January 21, before the main television series.
don't know why Crunchyroll is reporting on this since we already got a date announced for spring 2017 after it was delayed
I guessing to promote their simulcast channel as they have the special episode in their catalog
Good news for fantasy anime fans: GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation will resume broadcasting in Japan beginning on April 01, 2017. The series initially kicked off on January 21, 2017, with a TV movie that encapsulates the 1st two episodes of the series, but the remainder of the show based on the smart phone RPG by Cygames was postponed for unknown reasons.
Oh this would have been good for the Gar of the Week
The muscular men of Cygame's Granblue Fantasy are starring in their own music video wearing little more than a fundoshi. The "Sanbagarasu Otoko Uta" (Male Trio Song) stars Soriz (Rikiya Koyama), Jin (Hiroki Yasumoto), and Eugen (Keiji Fujiwara).
The song is from the character CD of the same name set for release on June 22. It includes the trio version and individual versions by each of the three characters and an instrumental track. Players who purchase the CD can enter a bundled serial code to get a fundoshi skin for Eugen along with a male character weapon gacha ticket and three elixirs.
Cygames is also releasing a character CD for Jessica (Asami Seto) and Aliza (Natsumi Takamori) on the same day. The song is titled "Yozora no Shizuku" (Droplets of the Night Sky). The song is quite appealing even if the characters opted for clothes in this case.
Another Aniplex dub just joined the Crunchyroll lineup! In addition to the English-subtitled episodes that are currently available to stream, the first seven episodes of the GRANBLUE FANTASY: The Animation English dub are now live.
Territories remain the same for the dubbed version: North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland.
The website Twinfinite reported on Tuesday that game director Tetsuya Fukuhara told the website that the Granblue Fantasy: Relink PlayStation 4 game and the Granblue Fantasy Versus PlayStation 4 game will have simultaneous worldwide releases. Fukuhara also said that Cygames is using its experience from the original Granblue Fantasy smartphone game to handle localization internally.
In addition, Fukuhara said that Granblue Fantasy: Relink was delayed from its initial 2018 release date after the project became "more and more massive" and it was harder than developers expected to "implement the full details" of the game's world into 3D models. The developers decided to delay the release to improve the game's quality. The staff have yet to announce a release date because, Fukuhara said, they want to avoid having another delay from an announced date.
Cygames announced earlier this month that it is taking over development of Granblue Fantasy: Relink from Platinum Games. The game is planned for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish localizations.
Cygames announced Arc System Works' Granblue Fantasy Versus game in December, and it is slated to launch in Japan in 2019.
and then we have good news, a season 2 is green lit for October 2019
The tagline accompanying the visual reads, "Once again now, to the vast blue skies…" The season will depict the new journey of the boy Gran — who came of age through adventure while heading for Estalucia, Island of Stars — and the girl Lyria who fell from the skies.
The staff introduces the new season's story:
The boy, who looked up to the skies and aimed for the Island of Stars, has linked his fate and life with the mysterious blue-haired girl who fell from the skies. What the boy and girl encountered on their journey were companions they could count on and then an airship heading to their destination.
The two deepened their bonds and came of age while evading the pursuing empire and encountering the Primal Beasts. However, their path to the Island of Stars is but half complete. The boy and girl advance to their next journey with their companions.
Yui Umemoto (Cardfight!! Vanguard G) is directing the new season at MAPPA, instead of the first season's series director Ayako Kurata and director Yuuki Itoh at A-1 Pictures. Kiyoko Yoshimura (Cardfight!! Vanguard G, The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Garo -Vanishing Line-) is the new writer in charge of the series scripts. Fumihide Sai (Shugo Chara!, Gokujyo. Gokurakuin Joshi Kōryō Monogatari) is the new character designer.
The other new staff members include color key artist Yukie Noguchi, art director Nobuhito Sue, CG director Shunsaku Usui, compositing director of photography Yoshihisa Oyama, editor Keisuke Yanagi, sound director Yui Umemoto, sound effects artist Toshiya Wada, and the sound production studio dugout.
However, Tsutomu Narita and Yasunori Nishiki are returning to compose the music.
The cast members reprising their roles include:
Yuuki Ono as Gran Nao Tōyama as Lyria Rie Kugimiya as Vyrn Miyuki Sawashiro as Katalina Hiroaki Hirata as Rackam Yukari Tamura as Io Rie Tanaka as Rosetta Emiri Katō as Sierokarte
Keiji Fujiwara is returning to the role of Eugen, after Kazuhiro Yamaji replaced him in Season 1 during Fujiwara's medical leave.
The series will premiere on October 4, and it will run on the Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11, MBS, and AT-X channels. AbemaTV and other services will stream the anime in Japan.
The official website for the Granblue Fantasy the Animation anime series revealed a new key visual and the ending theme song artist on Saturday for the show's second season, GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation Season 2. Actress Moka Kamishiraishi's music project adieu will perform the ending theme song "Ao" (Blue).
The official website is also listing the anime with seven home video releases and 14 episodes.
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
