Based on the Japanese visual novel by Front Wing, The Fruit of Grisaia revolves around Mihama Academy, a prison-like school built to preserve fruit that has fallen too far from its tree. It is home to five female students who each have their reasons for enrolling in the academy and live their life idly within the walls of Mihama. One day, Kazami Yuuji the institute’s first male student arrives and throws the orderly rhythm of Mihama off balance. Is Yuuji what the girls need to get hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome? Or is his past even heavier than any of the others?
The Labyrinth of Grisaia will be a 60 minute special episode featuring the main character’s past and a collection of sequels for the five female characters. The Eden of Grisaia continues where The Fruit of Grisaia left off, and is premiering April 19th 2015.
