REUTERS/Corinna Kern – Not just Naruto and Dragon Ball: “Yes Planet” and “Rav Hen Dizengoff” movie theaters in Tel Aviv this weekend were painted in the bright colors of Japanese anime in honor of a special screening of the hit animated film, “Fate/Grand Order THE MOVIE Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot Wandering; Agateram.”

The movie is based on the free-to-play mobile game “Fate/Grand Order” (FGO).

Though not available in app stores in Israel, FGO launched in 2015 and boasts more than 42 million downloads. It also gave birth to an empire of brand spinoffs and products, including television series, Manga comics and even theater productions in Tokyo and Osaka.

The brand has essentially become so successful in Japan that it is even being compared to Pokemon Go.
