New Anime December 2016

Seriously scary how fast the year has flown by. I can not believe we are already in December! Looking at what is coming out this month I am glad to say that there looks to be quite a few interesting movies as well as anime and OVA’s. Early warning, this is a longish post so you might want to first grab a cup of coffee, stretch your legs and then settle in to read this.


Fate/Grand Order: First Order

  • Genre: Magic
  • Release Date: December

During the final era over which magic still held sway in the year 2015, humanity survival and security organization Caldea was established to observe the world that can only be seen by magic and the world that can only be measured by science and to prevent the final extinction of mankind. Thanks to the efforts of many researchers, the path of human history has been ensured for 100 years into the future. However, without warning, the realm of the future that was under constant observation by Caldea vanished. The extinction of humanity in 2017 was confirmed.The apparent cause of the extinction was in the Japanese city of Fuyuki in 2004. In that city, there was an “unobservable realm” which had never before existed. Caldea issued the Grand Order for a “Holy Grail Expedition,” to investigate, uncover, and possibly destroy the singularity that apparently will cause the extinction of humanity.

Okay so that wasn’t quite as long as I had originally thought it would be.The site I source the release dates from had a lot of DVD/Blue Ray releases making it seem like this would be longer than it was. For all of the above shows mentioned I sourced release dates from here otherwise all other info and images I sourced myself.
