HOUSTON, TX — October 29, 2019 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired distribution rights to Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, the adaptation of the wildly popular Fate/Grand Order mobile game’s seventh Singularity, for audiences in the United States and Canada. The series premieres on HIDIVE, Tuesday, November 5, at 14:30 UTC, with new episodes premiering on following Tuesdays at the same time.
Ritsuka Fujimaru, the final human Master, and his Demi-Servant, Mash Kyrielight, have journeyed through multiple lands, realities and eras to prevent the Incineration of Humanity and repair “realms that cannot be observed” called Singularities. As the duo journeys in ancient Mesopotamia in the year 2655 B.C. to repair a newly discovered seventh Singularity, they find the fortress city of Uruk fighting back a fearsome attack of Demonic Beasts, known as the Absolute Demonic Front. What insidious power has begun to awaken in this ancient land?
