Why Did Fate Grand Order Start With the 8th Arc?

I want to start this off by saying that I’ve never played the Fate Grand Order mobile game. And now that I’m writing this article, I might do that. With my lack of knowledge of Fate Grand Order but my enjoyment of Fate Stay Night and Zero, I was hype to hear that Fate Grand Order was getting an anime. What I didn’t like was learning that it wasn’t starting from the beginning, but with the Babylonia arc, the 8th arc out of 9.




I still decided to watch the new Fate Grand Order since it still looked like it could be watched as its own thing. And with only watching 4 episodes, it does seem like it could be watched as a stand alone thing. It’s just annoying watching the show knowing that our mains Fujimaru and Mesh, have been on missions we have never seen. Merlin even brings up how he’s been enjoying watching the two on their adventures in episode 2.


Yeah, thanks Merlin for showing me that I missed the arc with best bae in it.


Fate is a popular series, so I don’t see why they decided to skip 7 arcs, just to get to the Babylonia arc. Even if it’s the most popular arc in the Fate Grand Order mobile game, I’m sure fans would not have a problem watching all 7 arcs before getting to this one. I feel like viewers like me can watch Fate Grand Order - Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia without prior knowledge, but we’re still losing out on a lot of interesting adventures and character moments...or at least, that’s what I think. Maybe those arcs are super boring and have nothing exciting to offer? Maybe studio ClockWork is doing us a favor?


Why do you think studio ClockWork skipped all the other 7 arcs Would you have liked to see the other arcs animated? Was the other 7 arcs boring? Tell us in the comments below.
