Fate/Apocrypha TV Anime Unveils Ad, July 1 Premiere, New Visual


Recommended Posts

The official website for the television anime adaptation of TYPE-MOON and Yuichiro Higashide's Fate/Apocrypha novels began streaming a television commercial for the series on Sunday. The "Ruler" video is the first of three themed commercials for the anime. (Note: The linked video on the official website is region-locked to Japan.)



The second commercial, which will have a "Black Faction/Red Faction" theme, will premiere on June 17, followed by the "Opening of the Holy Grail War" commercial on June 24.


The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, BS11, Gunma TV, and Tochigi TV on July 1 at 24:00 (effectively 12:00 a.m. on July 2). It will then debut on MBS on July 4 at 27:30 (effectively 3:30 a.m. on July 5). The series will begin exclusively streaming on Netflix on July 3.


The website also revealed the second key visual:



The anime will have a special advance screening event for the first two episodes at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 theater on June 30. Voice actors Natsuki Hanae, Maaya Sakamoto, Kouki Uchiyama, Makoto Furukawa, and Rumi Ookubo will participate in a talk show at the event. In addition, Furukawa and Ookubo will appear on the Fate/Apocrypha Radio Trifas! web radio program, which will debut on the Internet radio station Onsen on June 23.

Higashide himself is in charge of the anime's series scripts, and Yoshiyuki Asai (Charlotte) is directing at A-1 Pictures. Yūkei Yamada is adapting Ototsugu Konoe's original character designs for animation. Masaru Yokoyama (The Lost Village, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Nobunaga Concerto) is composing music.


EGOIST will perform the opening theme song "Eiyū Unmei no Uta" (The Song of a Hero's Fate), and GARNiDELiA will perform the ending theme song.


In the story, there was once a Holy Grail War waged by seven Mages and Heroic Spirits in a town called Fuyuki. However, a certain Mage took advantage of the chaos of World War II to steal a Holy Grail. Several decades have passed, and the Yggdmillennia family, who took upon the Holy Grail as its symbol, defected from the Mages' Association and declared their independence. Furious, the Association sent a force to deal with the Yggdmillennia, but they were defeated by the summoned Servants. With the Holy Grail War system changed, war at an unprecedented scale, with seven versus seven, breaks out. And so, the curtain rises on the epoch-making Great Holy Grail War.

Seems interesting, might as well add it to my lengthy ptw list.

Fate/Apocrypha is what I'm most looking forward to during this weak upcoming Summer season.


The Summer season is definitely not as appetizing as this awesome Spring season has been imo.. I picked up more this Spring than I've picked up during any season since like 2009. I mean we got Attack on Titan 2, Rage of Bahamut 2, DanMachi Gaiden, and Rei Hiroe's latest project Re:CREATORS all in a single season. Plus some great sci-fi, which anime typically lacks, in KADO: The Right Answer.


In comparison Fate/Apocrypha and possible Made in Abyss are probably the only things I'm looking forward to. I'll be checking out a couple more, sure, but nothing that I'm hyped up about.


I'd have liked to fansub Fate/Apocrypha but I don't have the staff to be tackling a weekly original translated show nor do I have anyone capable of ripping Netflix Japan. The show is Netflix exclusive, so while Netflix Japan gets it weekly with no subtitles, the official English streamed subtitles won't appear on Netflix US until after the season is done. So fansubbing it would require an original TL and someone to rip Netflix Japan or use the inferior HDTV caps by whatever group puts them out, or paying a Japanese HDTV capper to supply us with .TS caps to encode from... Though I may be able to help another group with this show if they have the available staff and resources and would be willing to accept my help.
