Peppermint Anime recently revealed that the Record of Grancrest War anime series will be getting a home video release in Germany and now the fifth dub clip has arrived. This one does some solid character material as opposed to the action side and gives us a feel for some of the darker side cast. The separate DVD and Blu-ray editions are set to land with the second release on October 4th, 2019. It’ll have the second set of six episodes in bilingual form with German subtitles. Extras include just trailers so far.

Plot Concept: On a continent ruled by chaos, the Lords have the power of a holy seal that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, before anyone realizes it, the rulers cast aside their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each other’s holy seals to gain dominion over one another. Shiruuka, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, make an everlasting oath to work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.
