Fate/Apocrypha is coming into the Summer 2017 anime season with a ton of hype, and this is without the Fate cash cow, Artoria (the original Fate Saber). Now, the anime finally airs its final TV ad before it makes its long-awaited July 2 premiere.
The video is officially titled “The Opening of the Holy Grail War”, and it features the anime’s OP theme song, “Eiyuu Unmei no Uta” by EGOIST.
The story features an alternate story about a different Grail War. In the original Fate/Stay Night series, it was a battle royale between seven masters and their servants, however, in Fate/Apocrypha, it’s a faction war between seven masters and servants. This war is about the conflict between the Red Faction and the Black Faction, who are both vying to receive the power of the Holy Grail.
Charlotte’s Yoshiyuki Asai is directing the anime over at A-1 Pictures. It will premiere in Japan on July 2 at midnight, 12:00 am. It will also have exclusive streaming via Netflix starting July 3, 2017.
