Fate/Grand Order: First Order

 In Reviews
2015 AD: Chaldea issues an order to investigate a time singularity during a Holy Grail war in 2004 AD that threatens the future existence of humanity...


The story is set in the year 2015, during the final era over which magic still held a strong influence. The humanity survival and security organization Chaldea was established to observe the world that can only be seen by magic and the world that can only be measured by science; as well as to prevent the final extinction of humanity.

Thanks to the efforts of many researchers, the path of human history has been ensured for 100 years into the future. However, without warning, the realm of the future that was under constant observation by Chaldea vanished. The extinction of humanity in 2017 was observed—no, confirmed.

The apparent cause of the extinction was in the Japanese city of Fuyuki in 2004. In that city, there was an “unobservable realm” which had never existed until now.

Chaldea issued the Grand Order for a “Holy Grail Expedition,” to investigate, uncover, and possibly destroy the singularity that apparently will cause the extinction of humanity.

Community Reviews for Fate/Grand Order: First Order



As you all may know, Fate/Grand Order is adapted from a mobile game on iOS/Android in Japan. As a player of the game myself, I really enjoyed this adaptation.

Mash/Mashu Kyrielight is seriously best kouhai ever. I will never understand why I didn't level her up ingame.

Fujimaru Ritsuka is well... uhh... Yeah. Common. Let's see if he'll develop on the next Singularities, which they hinted at the ending.

I definitely recommend watching this, and playing the game both.

"Everyone is a senpai to me"

-Mashu. hoho
-Olga Marie is now added to the waifu list.

-Animation is kinda meh compared to the other titles.
-Parts skipped here and there, not that it matters much. BUT IT DOES FOR ME.

Enjoyable Fate series title - Mash is best kouhai


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
