I feel like they are just building this towards a full TV anime eventually.

I probably won't watch this. I didn't like First Order and there is no point in watching what is essentialy an advertisement when i'm not interested in the actual game.

can we get someone other than Lay-duce please. From what I've seen, they're not very good at animating. I think that even A-1 Pictures is a better choice for animation. It's true that in Lay-duce's recent anime project, Our love has always been 10 cm apart, there have been instances of great animation, but all the in-between stuff is significantly less than average for a series that's only supposed to be six episodes.

I am sure they are. Just simply teasing ppl enough with this specials so that they can do a full cour anime later. Its relly more about when and not if it ever gets one, since its a quite popular fate.

Despite the flaws that Fate/Grand Order has as a game and as an anime OVA (well Fuyuki arc was meh tbh) I'm looking forward to these.

Of course the two being made by different studios (one of them already worked on it, as well as the director already worked on the series before + Nasu is doing the scripts? o.o) and one of them is by Ufo, I'm actually looking forward to this.

And wait, what Ufo is doing a Slice of Life? o.o Huh. That'll be interesting since they haven't done an actual legit SoL in like so damn long.

It would be nice if this time it's(the Lay-Duce one) more than just a well-directed special episode like the First Order.

More interested in the 2nd one. It's probably not a sequel to First Order. Given the key visual and description, it's probably an animated version of Mashu's past and her life in Chaldea. We already got some idea of it in the game but it would be interesting to see it animated and expanded upon. Wonder if this will have some importance to part 2 of FGO main story. Either way, Nasu wrote this so I'm excited.

I never thought I see school life adapted. Great. But don't expect fighting and stuff. It is basically a comedy that USB set in a world where the hgw hasn't happened

I was a Type-Moon fan but honestly I'm getting tired of this Fate BS. Can't I have a Tsukihime already?

Well, as long as I can see Mashu it's fine for me but it doesn't change the fact that I'm already getting tired of more Fate/insert random shit.

I'm all good with these, but want a full tv series!

I mean come on! The first part of Grand Order is already over in the game! Even the 2nd/1.5th part "Epic of Remnant" is nearing the end. The English will already be having London in a few days... So why not a TV series!?
