This is a one hour special. Although we have been spoilt by ufotable with their previous Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works and Fate/Zero releases, I found Fate Grand/Order: First Order to be quite quite enjoyable. Animation quality is quite bland but still is an enjoyable watch.
FGO focuses on security organisation Chaldea, where they aim to fix a time singularity during a holy grail war from Fate Stay Night in 2004. Lancer, Archer and Saber were OK, though the main star is definitely Mash with her Shielder servant form during the singularity.
Clearly this was made to market the Fate/Grand Order mobile game, and it worked on me as I downloaded it our of curiosity on my iPhone device! Overall a fun watch and nice anime adaptation to add to the Fate series.
The ending hints at more singularities, would be nice to see the story continued more to see the other classes and worlds with Mash and Fujimara Ritsuka.
- Fun time jumping concept with the singularities - Mash Kyrielight (Shielder) is kind, adorable and very cute!
- Bland animated character models - Fujimaru Ritsuka (Commoner 48) is also rather bland as a protagonist
