Like most shows, they are based on a movie, a novel but in anime another area of resources for storytelling are games. This anime was based on the Granblue Fantasy game. The first season, animated by A-1 Pictures, aired from April 2 to June 25, 2017. A second season, animated by MAPPA, aired from October 4 to December 27, 2019.




The series follows a young boy who dreams of the stars as he unites with a mysterious blue haired girl from the skies. Along with their trusted companions, they board an airship, deepening their bonds as they evade the imperial forces which pursue them. The story is a little basic but in a new world a basic story is all you need to introduce fans to this new world.


A new upcoming special will focus on Djeeta, the main female protagonist in the original game. It stars Kanemoto Hisako as Djeeta, Hanazawa Kana as Zeta, and Hirano Aya as Beatrix. Granblue Fantasy Extra 1: Mou Hitotsu no Tabiji airs on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11, and AbemaTV on Mar. 27.


I started watching the first season, I didn't complete it but I'm working on it! For anyone who has been with us at Drawlines Misfits, like FarCorners we are heavy in art and storytelling. For those curious about those 2 businesses, they are 2 comic book businesses loving the world of comics and the things we create for the community!


I have to say the artwork and style of this anime and the game was designed beautifully. The game and anime art style is the same but for the show its a bit on the simpler end. Still good but not as good as there character designs and game. Like the transformers, creating a TV show that people can fall in love with will set up a beautiful fan base. For those that want to give this anime a shot the first season is on Netflix right now.


For the games, They have Granblue Fantasy: Relink which came out in 2016 and then localization was announced for English, German, Italian, French, and Spanish languages on February 4, 2019





Then you have the Granblue Fantasy: Versus which I will tell you right now that I LOVE 2D fighting games or 2D environment fighting games. So many good fighting games with great artwork in it. This game is coming out in 2020, here is an intro to this game down below. I can't wait to try this game out.



If you actually go to there beautifully designed website you can download the mobile game for android or iPhone or you can play the game on your PC on your browser. That's cool and smart! Click here if you want to give it a shot: https://granbluefantasy.jp/en/


I also couldn't walk away without putting up this beautiful art gallery of some of there characters. This section is for us artists! We love having references and ideas just shoved in our faces, well I do! Artists grow from other artists so this is a good inspiration for all of us. Hope you all enjoy this blog post, make sure to come to see us at Newark CultureCon.
