Granblue Fantasy Anime Kicks Off on April 1

Cygames’ Granblue Fantasy smartphone RPG is coming to television in the form of an anime adaptation from Sword Art Online‘s A-1 Pictures, and the official website updated with broadcast details. The adventure begins on April 1 and will air on Tokyo MX, BS11, Tochigi TV, and Gunma TV, with broadcasts to follow on MBS, AT-X, TV Aichi, Hokkaido Broadcasting Co., Ltd., RKB Mainichi Broadcasting, and Saga TV.

But enough about channels we don’t have outside of Japan! Aniplex of America previously announced plans to stream the series through Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Anime Strike, so you’ll be able to check it out shortly after its Japanese debut.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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”.
