HOUSTON, TX – October 4, 2019 – HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to fantasy anime Granblue Fantasy: The Animation Season 2 from studio MAPPA (Kids on the Slope, Ushio & Tora, Dororo), the thrilling follow-up to 2017’s season 1, for audiences in North America. The series premieres on HIDIVE beginning Friday, October 4, 2019 at 16:30 UTC with new episodes following on Fridays at the same time.
Gran and Lyria’s skybound journey continues in Granblue Fantasy: The Animation Season 2! Joined by their crewmates and trusted friends, they take to the skies in an enormous airship in pursuit of their far-flung destination, dodging the soldiers of the Erste Empire who seek to control Lyria’s power to communicate with dangerous primal beasts. Trials and tribulations lie in the endless blue skies above, but with their friends beside them, there are no heights Gran and Lyria can’t reach!
Granblue Fantasy: The Animation Season 2 is based on the hit game by Cygames, continuing Gran and Lyria’s on-screen adventures after the events of season 1. Yui Umemoto (Kids on the Slope, Durarara!!, My Little Monster) will direct the series, which stars Yuki Ono (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun, ASSASSINS PRIDE, The Devil is a Part-Timer!) as Gran, Nao Toyama (GATE, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, The Asterisk War) as Lyria and Miyuki Sawashiro (High School of the Dead, Bakemonogatari, Mushishi) as Katalina.
