Southeast Asian anime channel ANIPLUS Asia has revealed during C3AFA Singapore 2017 last November that Record of Grancrest War will be their first simulcast title for next year’s Winter anime season.
The channel has announced on Monday that the upcoming show will premiere on January 6, airing Every Saturday nights at 01:00am (12:00am JKT), within an hour after the Japanese telecast.
Set in the land of Atland, Record of Grancrest War will bring you on an adventure with Theo, a vagrant knight, and Siluca, a lone mage, as they make an oath as master and retainer. Through their adventure, they aim to reform their land that is riddled with war and chaos, as corrupted nobles used their powers to gain more land and power instead of fighting against the darkness that are plaguing their lands.
