Why You Should Be Watching: Fate/Apocrypha

Fate, Fate, Fate. Everyone knows the series if they’ve been anywhere near the anime fandom for any amount of time, and this latest in the franchise is more, more, more of everything you loved and hated from the first series.

Fate/Apocrypha takes place in an alternate reality where Fate/Stay Night never happened, and instead of the Free For All of 7 Servants and their Masters of Fate/Stay Night, there’s a 7v7 Holy Grail Team Deathmatch.

Check out my thoughts on the anime below on Why You Should Be Watching it!

New Key Visual for “Fate/Apocrypha” TV Anime

A new key visual has been released for A-1 Picture‘s anime adaptation of the Fate/Apocrypha light novel series.

The synopsis can be found below:

“The setting is a parallel world to Fate/stay night where the Greater Grail mysteriously disappeared from Fuyuki after the Third Holy Grail War. After many years of silence, around the same time as the Fifth Holy Grail War would have happened, the Yggdmillennia, a family of magi, openly declares their secession from the Mage’s Association, and that they are in possession of the Grail. The Association dispatches fifty magi to retrieve it, and all but one are instantly slaughtered by a mysterious Servant. The one remaining manages to activate the reserve system of the Greater Grail, allowing for the summoning of fourteen Servants in total.

In the city of Trifas, two factions will fight for the control of the sacred relic, each of them possessing their own team of seven Servants : the Black Faction whose members are part of Yggdmillennia, protecting the Grail, and the Red Faction whose members were sent by the Mage’s Association, trying to take the Grail back. For an event of this scale, the Grail itself summons its own Servant, the holy Ruler, to oversee the conflict.

This marks the start of the Great Holy Grail War.”

Fate/Apocrypha will begin airing sometime in 2017.
