The new Fate/Apocrypha anime will be premiering on Netflix later this year, and they’ve also released a trailer!
For those unfamiliar with the series, Fate/Apocrypha is set in an alternate universe than the original Fate/stay night due to a few key events not occurring the way they did in the original anime. But the show, in general, focuses on the conflict between two opposing factions who will clash with their own individual Servants.
Here’s the synopsis:
An unprecedented Great Holy Grail War begins…
Fourteen Heroic Spirits gather for an apocryphal Holy Grail War. In a city called Fuyuki, seven magi and their Heroic Spirits once clashed in a Holy Grail War. But amid the chaos of the Second World War, a magus made off with the Grail. Decades later, the Yggdmillennia clan holds the Grail high and secedes from the Mage’s Association, declaring their independence. Angered by the move, the Association sends assassins after them, only to have them wiped out by a Yggdmillennia Servant. The choice is made to fight Servants with Servants, and the Holy Grail War system is expanded to two factions of seven Servants each. A Holy Grail War of unprecedented scale — a Great Holy Grail War — begins in Trifas, Romania.
The series will run for a total of 25 episodes for season 1 and its set to hit Netflix on 7 November for the US and Canada, while the rest of the world will receive the anime on 2 December.
