Record of Lodoss War creator Ryo Mizuno’s next fantasy epic is already making waves. With a January release date firmly slated, Record of Grancrest War is gathering steam well in advance of its premiere. And to get you more excited, there’s a brand new, action-packed PV:
Record of Grancrest War takes place in a world where humans are gifted with magical Crests that can fight off demons from another dimension. However, the humans have instead begun fighting each other for more powerful Crests. Together, main characters Theo and Siluca attempt to bring peace to the land with the help of their friends.
The new series will be directed by Mamoru Hatakeyama (Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju) and animated by A-1 Pictures. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure composer Yugo Kanno will be scoring the series.
Record of Grancrest War begins airing on TOKYO MX this January.
