In 2015, the final era where sorcery still exists, the Chaldea Security Organization, its numerous projects having guaranteed humanity’s existence through to the next century, discovers that the future they have observed no longer exists, and calculates that humanity will now go extinct in 2016. It traces the cause of this event to an anomaly that has appeared in 2004 in Fuyuki City. To avert the extinction of mankind, Chaldea decides to use its sixth experiment, time travel, converting its agents into spirit particles and sending them through time to destroy the space-time anomalies that will cause humanity’s extinction. The name of this mission: “Grand Order”, the name for those who would rise up against human history for the sake of humans, and fight fate itself.
