Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia to Run 21 Episodes

Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia Series to Run 21 EpisodesThe more Babylonia the better!

So seems to be the thought process (and who are we to disagree?) from the folks at CloverWorks, who are bringing Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia to screens this October.

Those clover fellows have confirmed the series will run two seasons, or “cours” if you prefer. That means 21 episodes of Babylony action. It’ll run until March 2020.

Said series is directed by Toshifumi Akai (episode director on Darling in the Franxx) with character designs from Tomoaki Takase and music by Ryo Kawasaki. Its ending theme will be performed by Eir Aoi.

Fans in Los Angeles can get an early look Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia at a preview screening in Little Tokyo September 29.

Here’s how Aniplex describes the series:

A.D. 2017 The last era in which Magecraft still existed.

Society was created by human hands, but Mages grasped the truth of the world. Magecraft is comprised of techniques from past humans that cannot be explained by science, while science encompasses the techniques of future humans that Magecraft cannot achieve. Researchers and scholars of both Magecraft and science have been gathered to maintain human civilization under the Chaldea Security Organization.

But calculations then proved the extinction of humanity in 2019. The cause of this is “realms that cannot be observed” that suddenly appeared in various eras of history, called “Singularities.”
