A seventh Singularity has been discovered—in ancient Mesopotamia in the year 2655 B.C.
The land of Uruk, governed by the wise King Gilgamesh after his return from a journey seeking immortality, was grand and prosperous until three goddesses and countless Demonic Beasts appeared. These enemies have brought Uruk to the brink of destruction. With a “Rayshift”—a method of time travel to the past—Fujimaru and Mash arrive in the lands of Uruk to encounter the fortress city of Uruk and the Absolute Demonic Front, fighting back the fearsome attack of the Demonic Beasts. There, the people who live their lives to the fullest despite facing a major threat, continue to fight for their future. Deities and Demonic Beasts make their assault, and mankind stands up against it… It is the destined era where humans and gods part ways. Fujimaru and Mash, the pair who have raced through six previous Singularities, embark on their final battle.
Starting with a retelling of First Order, Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia (ADFB) throws us quickly into a Journey full of colorful characters and storytelling. It’s unique setting and historical/mythological character line is up will surely evoke nostalgia for fans of Age of Empires/Age of Mythology but be prepared for a Fate-esque twist. The side characters (try not to think about the main character too much) definitely make the show worth watching. ADFB does however suffer from power creep and it’s side affects but does well to mitigate this while concluding each arc, you can also expect some jarring CG and a surplus of plot holes. The show also opens up the possibility of many other prequels & sequels which we are of course looking forward to!
