Otaku Movie Anatomy hosts review Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV!
Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV is a 2016 original net animation series directed by Soichi Masui, produced by Akio Ofuji, written by Yuniko Ayana, and composed for by Yasuhisa Inoue and Susumi Akizuki. Co-produced by Square Enix and A-1 Pictures, it is based on the setting and story of the 2016 video game Final Fantasy XV, which is thematically connected to the Fabula Nova Crystallis subseries. Brotherhood is set within the events of Final Fantasy XV, and details the backstories of main protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum and those closest to him.
Brotherhood was made as part of a planned multimedia expansion of Final Fantasy XV without the need to develop a series of games. The series was conceived by Ofuji, basing on his wish to expand upon an in-game reference to Prompto’s difficult childhood. The series’ release began on March 30 and will continue until the release of Final Fantasy XV on September 30. The story focuses on themes of brotherhood and friendship, and was designed to give players glimpses into the personal lives of the characters that would not have fitted well within the game itself.
