Anime adaptation of Fate/Apocrypha slated for 2017

Alongside the tidalwave of Fate updates that came at the end of 2016, yet another new anime is working its way in for this year. The Fate/Apocrypha novels’ adaption as a manga by Akira Ishida may have been last year’s big news, but the latest project launching has Charlotte‘s Yoshiyuki Asai directing at A-1 Pictures.

Here’s the trailer that arrived on Saturday:

The new website also posted the show’s first key visual, and announced the full roster of main staff. The original novels’ author Yuichiro Higashide will be writing scripts himself, and Fate/Zero animator Yukei Yamada is adapting original artist Ototsugu Konoe’s character designs. Masaru Yokoyama of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is composing music for the show. Yamada created the teaser visual of the show’s 14 Servants, as shown below.

On January 10th, the new issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Newtype magazine will run a feature on what this year has in store for Fate. The article will release more info on the Fate/Apocrypha anime, the Fate/stay night Heaven’s Feel films and Fate/Extra Last Encore series, as well as the TV special Fate/Grand Order: First Order, and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya. As an added bonus, the issue will include original illustrations by Takashi Takeuchi, character designer for the Fate/stay night visual novel.
