The Granblue Fantasy TV movie is debuting later this month, and to celebrate the January 21 release of the anime adaptation based on the popular smart phone game developed by Cygames, a new key visual featuring the main characters of the series has been released.
The Granblue Fantasy TV movie is directed by Yuuki Itoh and features animation by A-1 Pictures. The film debuts on Tokyo MX and AbemaTV on January 21, 2016, with later broadcasts scheduled on AT-X and BS11. Crunchyroll will also simulcast the film in North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Ireland.
Crunchyroll describes the story for Granblue Fantasy as follows:
This is a world of the skies, where many islands drift in the sky. A boy named Gran and a talking winged lizard named Vyrn lived in Zinkenstill, an island which yields mysteries. One day, they come across a girl named Lyria. Lyria had escaped from the Erste Empire, a military government that is trying to rule over this world using powerful military prowess.
In order to escape from the Empire, Gran and Lyria head out into the vast skies, holding the letter Gran's father left behind - which said, "I will be waiting at Estalucia, Island of Stars".
