In the American city of Snowfield, a new Holy Grail War is about to erupt. Such ruthless confrontations pit against each other magic experts known as magi, who ascend to the status of Master by summoning Servants—heroic spirits of the past. The winner is thought to have any one of their wishes granted.

However, it appears that the organization behind the present situation has merely managed to create an imperfect copy of the Third Holy Grail War. As the unusual ritual catches the attention of the Mage's Association in London, Flatt Escardos, the young apprentice of Lord El-Melloi II—a former participant of the Fourth Holy Grail War—travels to Snowfield and, to the great dismay of his teacher, joins the ranks of the Masters.

In this fake conflict where the line between Masters and Servants is blurred, the different factions will have a hard time preventing the city of Snowfield from plunging into total chaos.

This series has surprises in store, even as it throws in a few familiar faces to keep things grounded. It also features some stellar animation in its fight scenes and backgrounds, really showcasing the budget A-1 Pictures brought to bear, even if it still feels a far cry from the many strengths of Ufotable's run with the series. It doesn't help that, during some of its quieter moments, this series makes some really odd and off-putting animation choices, and I just generally find it hard to get used to the way they've designed faces. Maybe that's just me.

Anyway, with a 55 minute runtime, this was ...

"Fate Strange/Fake: Whispers of Dawn" is the prologue of the next Fate series installment. It takes place in a battleground town, ready for the next great Grail War.

Each master and its servant are shown without hurry, with the first being Gilgamesh and Tine, a shy but bold girl. The known magician El Melloi is another character worth mentioning, and along with him we have Flatt Escardos, a boy that doesn't seem anything special at first sight; in one ocasion, he gets an artifact ignored by Melloi. Such item is responsible to the coming of Jack the Ripper, who didn't show much of his power ...

Mixed Feelings
Admittedly I wasn’t aware this was a prologue/introduction for an anime (which has only just been announced as of writing this), so I was a bit confused by the methodical pace when watching. After all, Fake was apparently an April Fools’ joke that was made real, so I was expecting a little cheeky hour-long animation of that and that’s it. But this felt like it was taking itself as an actual story seriously, which I think is (ironically) a funny way to present jokes like this.

However, I was admittedly confused at everything that was going on. Almost everyone speaks verbosely, terms are thrown ...
