Fate Grand Order Solomon

The Fate/Grand Order Solomon feature film is coming soon for overseas viewers. Funimation and Crunchyroll announced that the film, which adapts the final chapter of the FGO “Part 1” main story campaign (“Part 2” began with Cosmos in the Lostbelt and is ongoing). Its formal title is Fate/Grand Order Final Singularity – The Grand Temple of Time: Solomon. No release date was revealed, though the film came out in Japan in July 2021.

Fate/Grand Order: Solomon sees an end to the battle between Chaldea and Solomon, the mastermind behind the Incineration of Humanity. Solomon established the Singularities to alter Earth’s history, which kicked off the main story of the game. Following the end of the previous chapter – which was covered in the 2019 Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia anime series, Chaldea is prepared to lay siege to the King of Mages in his sanctum and restore human history to its proper place. The film will expand on the events seen in the game, with new elements, such as an unusual piece of equipment worn by protagonist Ritsuka Fujimaru.

Check out the second trailer for the film.

Fate/Grand Order: Solomon was animated by Cloverworks, the same studio that produced the Babylonia anime. It also features much of the same staff, such as Director Toshifumi Akai, the character design team led by Tomoaki Takase, and composers Keita Haga and Ryo Kawasaki.
