Fate/Grand Order - Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot is a two-movie anime based on the "Camelot" chapter from the mobile game Fate/Grand Order. It is produced by Production I.G, and its first film, -Wandering; Agateram- was released December 5, 2020. The second film, -Paladin; Agateram-, will be released on May 8, 2021.
In the present day, the Chaldea Security Organization, already struggling to reverse the incineration of human civilization, has located the sixth of seven disturbances in the space-time continuum. As the sixth singularity linked to humanity's destruction, Chaldea sends Ritsuka Fujimaru and Mash Kyrielight back in time to put an end to it and retrieve the Mage King's Holy Grail. Their journey takes them to the land of Jerusalem in the wake of the Ninth Crusade; however, things have gone horribly off-track, even by the standards of the incineration of humanity. A conflict over the Holy Grail has just concluded, yet the singularity will not close, instead being forced open by an unknown entity. It is up to Chaldea to retrieve the Holy Grail and ensure that the Singularity will resolve itself, which causes their goals to intertwine with the goals of a mysterious knight on a journey of atonement...
The anime provides examples of:
- Adapted Out: Ally servants Hassan of the Hundred Personas and Tawara Touta have been cut out in order to squeeze the singularity's story into 2 films.note
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Several characters have changes to their wardrobe that amount to a combination of two of their ascension forms in the game. For example, Ozymandias wears both the black shirt from his first ascension and the white cape from his second and third ascensions.
- Anachronic Order: These films adapt Chapter 6 of the game. An anime series adapting Chapter 7 (Babylonia) has already aired ahead of these, running from October 2019 to March 2020. That said, a television movie adapting the prologue chapter of the game was made and released in 2016, and Babylonia's episode 0 covers a large chunk of the game's backstory which was not in the game's version of these chapters.
- Artificial Limbs: Bedivere's right arm is clearly artificial, and seems to be made out of silver.
- Badass Cape: Many. The Lion King, most of the Knights of the Round Table (Mordred being the sole exception), and Ozymandias all wear capes. Even Fujimaru dons one, at least while in the desert.
- Cool Car: Chaldea's group has a land vehicle (created by Da Vinci, natch) that they use to cross the desert. Its appearance is different from the one in the game, but it still looks cool.
- Greater-Scope Villain: The mastermind behind the incineration of humanity is Solomon, the King of Mages. However, he only factors indirectly into the story here, being the catalyst that set it all in motion and letting it play out without him. In the meantime, the protagonists have their hands full trying to deal with two opposing factions here.
- Guest-Star Party Member: In most Singularities, Leonardo da Vinci acts as Mission Control alongside Dr. Roman. Here, she's decided to get in on the action herself.
- Legacy Character: Hassan-i-Sabbah. Both Cursed Arm and Serenity took up the name and sit at different points on the line of succession. In the end, the name was held by 19 different assassins.
- Mêlée à Trois: The conflict of this story pits three factions against each other: an ancient Egyptian faction including Ozymandias and Nitocris; the Holy City, which includes the remaining Knights of the Round Table sans Bedivere (Gawain, Tristan, Lancelot, Mordred, and Agravain) and is led by the Lion King; and the indigenous people of the mountains, who are protected by Arash, the Hassans, and Sanzang.
- Never Trust a Trailer: The Visual Trailer groups Sanzang with Nitocris and Ozymandias when in the game she joins Chaldea's side right away and has minor interactions with the pharaohs. Her association with them seems to be due to her role in the story being more heavily intertwined with their section.
- Pyramid Power: The Egyptian faction's stronghold takes the form of a city with a large pyramid at its center. The entire complex is actually Ozymandias' Noble Phantasm, Ramesseum Tentyris, which summons his temple in a manner similar to a Reality Marble.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Bedivere's silver arm is known in-universe and in the official North American translation as Airgetlám, named after the artificial arm of Nuada; however, the film title spells it Agateram.
- Suddenly Voiced: Agravain is voiced for the first time by Hiroki Yasumoto, as his appearances in the game were limited to cutscenes and has remained, so far, unsummonable as a servant.
- Supporting Protagonist: Though nominally Fujimaru is the protagonist, being the Player Character in the game, the focus of these films is first and foremost on Bedivere.
