The Chaldea Security Organization was founded to focus on preserving the continuation of human history. They observe a world which magecraft couldn’t observe, and science couldn’t measure, all to prevent the certain extinction of humanity. But one day, the future that Chaldea continued to observe disappears and humanity’s extinction in 2017 becomes clear. Based on the assumption that Fuyuki, a provincial town in Japan, is the reason for humanity’s extinction, Chaldea issues an order to explore, investigate, and possibly destroy this singularity – a quest for the Holy Grail, the Grand Order.
I just finished watching this about 20 minutes ago and I must say I have been anticipating this for a while now and this is one of the anime appearing this year I was really, REALLY excited to see. I must say I was a little disappointed. For starters I am a huge fan of the Fate series. I've heard about Fate/Grand Order the mobile game and I have always wanted to play it(but I can't play since I don't know Japanese and there is no English version as of now). So when I heard it was being adapted I was very excited. The story was good though it didn't fully cover certain topics and it left you asking more questions than it did answering them. Though the movies cover most of the basics and introductions nicely. The animation was good, it wasn't great but it was good and solid. The characters lacked development and just felt generic. From what I know about Fate/Grand Order it gives you the option of a female or male character(in this case this anime went with the male). I think It would have been a smarter move to go with the female character. It would been interesting to have the main protagonist be female. It felt Like a relationship between Mash and the protagonist was rushed and unrealistic. Another character I want to talk about is Lancer(who is caster in this). He is actually the most interesting character is Fate/Grand Order. Though he did seem a bit overpowered I didn't mind it. Another character Olga wasn't all that interesting, I did kinda like her(only because she reminded me of Rin with her tsundere like personality) but was a bit annoying. Overall I enjoyed Fate/Grand Ordee: First Order but it could have been better and the potential was there but it wasn't utilized.
Good service for fans of Lancer, but there's not much substance here. This is basically the anime equivalent of a bland video game's tutorial level. Heaps of meandering exposition, rapid-fire character introductions, forced drama, and protagonists who are so devoid of personality that you could replace every one of their lines with "Don't give up!" and not affect the plot in the slightest. What will make or break this are your feelings on the character of Lancer from other works in the Nasuverse. Thoroughly making up for his unfortunate fates in a prior Grail War, he's heavily featured in every single encounter - and it is glorious. some claim that even his abs are chiseled runes of power However, if you're unfamiliar with anything else in the Fate/ series, there won't be much here for you apart from a couple of neat fights and some interesting character designs. 6/10 - good fun, not great.
