Plot Summary: This is the story of the Chain Chronicle, a book that describes everything that happens in the world. The citizens of the remote continent of Yggd once thought that there was nothing beyond their continent. The continent was divided into several regions, each with its own king.
Known also as Hero (主人公, Shujinkō), he is the main character of the story. A Warrior-Class Swordsman and Leader of the Volunteer Army, he is guided by the sprite Pirika to protect Phoena from the Black Army as well as discovering the mysteries behind the book she's carrying.
From what I've heard, the content is the same. The TV version has an opening and ending for each episode. The movies are presented on Crunchyroll as 12 "episodes" (4 for each movie) but they don't have those individual OPs and EDs for each segment.
The 12 episodes of the TV series retells the same story of the movie trilogy, each divided into 4 episodes. The "Chapter List" table from Japanese Wikipedia shows the overlapping between each volume of the movie with the TV episodes: episode 1-4 (vol. 1), episode 5-8 (vol. 2).
A Gumi representative posted the news on the official Chain Chronicle forums today. Effective immediately, the game has been removed from the App Store and Google Play Store, and there will be no more sales of Prysma, however, players can continue to use Prysma they currently have.
