Watch Granblue Fantasy anime for free on YouTube for a limited time only

CyGames has released the first seven episodes of the anime “Granblue Fantasy: The Animation” for free and officially on its YouTube channel, at 1080p, as part of the promotion of “Granblue Fantasy: Relink” for PS4, PS5 and PC.

The popular Japanese license, known for its successful browser and mobile game, is looking to conquer Western audiences with titles such as “Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising” and the upcoming “Granblue Fantasy: Relink,” scheduled for February 1. As an additional strategy, CyGames is offering an opportunity for viewers to immerse themselves in the anime series.

The decision to provide the first seven episodes of “Granblue Fantasy: The Animation” for free on YouTube comes as a way to engage fans ahead of the release of “Granblue Fantasy: Relink.” The series, produced by A-1 Pictures in 2017, is available with English subtitles, as are the upcoming games in the franchise.

Although CyGames has not specified the duration of the episodes’ free availability, this strategy seeks to consolidate Granblue Fantasy’s presence in the Western market and generate interest ahead of the new title’s release. The promotion reflects the company’s desire to diversify its products and appeal to a wider audience across various platforms and entertainment formats. The initiative reinforces the comprehensive marketing strategy to maximize the franchise’s visibility and impact in global markets.
