The second season of Granblue Fantasyis coming up on October 4th, 2019 and we’ve had some good promotion and the simulcast pickups as well. The latest bit to arrive is from the official site as we now have the new key visual for it that will be used for a lot of the promotion. The new season is shaking things up a bit as Yui Umemoto is directing it with Kiyoko Yoshimura handling the series composition and scripts. Fumihide Sai is on board as the character design and MAPPA is handling the animation production.
Check out our review of the first half of the series through its North American release.
The first series had Yuuki Itou directing with Toshifumi Akai handling the character designs for it. With A-1 Pictures on the animation itself, we also know that Nobue Uematsu and Tsutomu Narita are handling the music. The opening theme song is “GO” by BUMP OF CHICKEN.
The Japanese cast includes Yuuki Ono as Glan, Nao Touyama as Ruria, Rie Kugimiya as Bii and Miyuki Sawashiro as Kataria.

Plot Concept: The boy, who looked up to the skies and aimed for the Island of Stars, has linked his fate and life with the mysterious blue-haired girl who fell from the skies.

The two deepened their bonds and came of age while evading the pursuing empire and encountering the Primal Beasts. However, their path to the Island of Stars is but half complete. The boy and girl advance to their next journey with their companions.
