The Asterisk War – Season 1 & Fate/Grand Order – First Order- To Arrive on Netflix UK Next Month

Netflix UK will once again expand it’s anime content next month as the subscription based video-on-demand platform will add two new Aniplex titles; in this case the complete first season of The Asterisk War as well as the first film in the Fate/Grand Order universe; that is according to new additions listed by Den of Geek.

Both titles will become available to Stream on Netflix UK from the 1st July 2018 and they are expected to be available in both English and Japanese audio options with English Subtitles.

The Asterisk War: Invertia–The astral catastrophe that annihilated many cities in the 20th century also gave birth to a new human race with special powers called the “Genestella.” At the same time, the special element found within the meteors of Invertia facilitated humanity’s technological advancement.

At the academic-city above water Rikka, also known as “Asterisk,” students from each of the six schools at Asterisk prepare for the ultimate battle tournament — known as “Festa.” Seidoukan Academy’s Ayato Amagiri takes up the challenge along with his partner Julis, a.k.a. Glühen Rose, the Witch of the Resplendent Flames. Ayato learns Julis has a big dream to achieve and decides to protect her to the end.

Fate/Grand Order -First Order-: The Chaldea Security Organization was founded to ensure the continuation of human history. They survey a world which magecraft couldn’t observe and science couldn’t measure all to prevent the certain extinction of humanity.

But one day, the future that Chaldea continued to observe disappears and humanity’s extinction in 2019 becomes clear. Rather, it had already happened. The cause seems to be related to Fuyuki, a provincial town in Japan, in the year AD 2004. There, an “unobservable region” that had not existed before appears. Based on the assumption that Fuyuki is the reason for humanity’s extinction, Chaldea issues an order to explore, investigate, and possibly destroy this singularity – a quest for the Holy Grail, the Grand Order.

It’s worth noting that Fate/Grand Order -First Order- is available on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK via MVM Entertainment while The Asterisk War will be available in two part installments on DVD and Blu-Ray starting from next month with The Asterisk War – Part 1 via MVM Entertainment.
