Will 'Granblue Fantasy' return for season 3?
'Granblue Fantasy The Animation' is an adaptation of the popular video game series of the same name. A-1 Pictures animated the first season of the anime, while MAPPA produced the second season.
'Granblue Fantasy' anime did not get the reception that the studios might have hoped for, despite its video game fan base.
The anime only holds a 6/10 rating on MyAnimeList, with about 50,000 votes. Albeit, some dedicated fans still think that the anime deserves to return for more. Is it happening? Let us find out.
The first season of 'Granblue Fantasy' premiered on April 2, 2017. The anime consists of 13 episodes, which ended on June 25, 2017. On November 29, 2017, a few months after the final episode aired, A-1 Pictures released a special episode titled 'Granblue Fantasy The Animation: Kabocha no Lantern.'
A 12-episode second season arrived on October 5, 2019, and ended on December 28, 2019. As of now, the anime is still not renewed for season 3. However, there is a possibility that it will return in the future. Despite the low rating, the anime still get renewed for season 2 anyway. So, the rating might not affect the show's renewal for season 3, too.
We will update this space once the anime is officially renewed.
We are still waiting for 'Granblue Fantasy' to get renewed for season 3. If the anime will receive the green light in the next few months, we might be able to see its return in 2022. It is still a shot in the dark as of the moment. The release date still depends on how soon the anime gets renewed and enters production.
The anime is set in a fantasy world inhabited by five races: the humans, the Draph, the Erune, and the unknown. This world consists of islands drifting in the sky. Kingdoms are either fighting for power or to preserve peace while keeping their sovereignty.
The series follows a young boy named Gran, who owns a talking, winged lizard named Vyrn. One day, he and his pet saw a hostile Erste Empire ship in the sky. Gran saw a girl named Lyria and an Imperial Officer named Katalina. The two are trying to flee from the Empire, which seeks to take over the world using its advanced military technology.
Gran manages to rescue the two of them but fatally hurts himself in the process. Before Gran dies, Lyria saves him by fusing her soul with him.
Lyria then summons a giant and powerful creature called the Proto-Bahamut, which dispels the Empire forces.
Lyria, Gran, and Vrym, and Katalina team up and head to an island called Estalucia to escape the Empire and find clues about Gran's mysterious father. The anime follows their epic adventures as they make new allies and get drawn into a much bigger sinister plot.
