A new preview video for upcoming fantasy light novel to TV anime adaptation, Hai to Gensou no Grimgal (aka Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, aka Grimgar le Monde des cendres et de fantaisie), is now available online.
Additionally, new information is available concerning the opening and ending themes for the series. Both themes as well as the insert and background music will be performed by (K) NoW_NAME, a new project sponsored by Toho Animation Records. The opening theme is entitled "Knew day", while the ending theme is entitled "Harvest".
The anime is directed by Ryosuke Nakamura with animation by A-1 pictures, and it is based on the Hai to Gensou no Grimgal light novels written by Ao Jūmonji and illustrated by Eiri Shirai. The story involves a group of people who find themselves inexplicably transported to an RPG-like fantasy world, with no recollection as to how they got there.
Hai to Gensou no Grimgal will debut on Tokyo MX and AT-X on January 10, 2016, during the 24:30 time slot. Another broadcast will begin on BS11 on January 15, 2016, during the 23:30 time slot. The series will also air on ABC (Asahi Broadcasting) beginning in January of 2016, but the details of this broadcast have not been released yet.
