Departure (旅立ち, Tabidachi) is the second episode of Granblue Fantasy: The Animation.
Although he was defeated by the Imperial Army, Gran rises again with Lyria's power. He summons the star beast, Bahamut with Lyria's guidance and repels the Imperial Army. After exhausting his power, Gran recalls his childhood memories.
That letter, "I will be waiting at Estalucia, Island of Stars." was the reason he desired to journey through the sky. The group is relieved when Gran wakes up safely.
However, Lyria reveals the shocking that fact that Gran had died but was able to survive by connecting himself to life. Gran was nearly lost, but his heart desires the Island of the stars so greatly that it brought him back.
