The Aniplex Online Fest 2022 event announced a television special anime for Ryohgo Narita's Fate/strange Fake light novel on Saturday. Aniplex simultaneously opened an official website, revealing the main staff, cast, a teaser visual (pictured) and teaser promo. The special episode, subtitled Whispers of Dawn, will debut on December 31 this year.

Staff
Director: Shun Enokido (Manga de Wakaru! Fate/Grand Order), Takahito Sakazume (Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 2 episode director)
Script: Daisuke Oohigashi (Mahoujin Guruguru (2017))
Character Design: Yuukei Yamada (Fate/Apocrypha)
Music: Hiroyuki Sawano (86)
Studio: A-1 Pictures

Cast
Ayaka Sajou: Kana Hanazawa (Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome)
Saber: Yuuki Ono (Hataraku Maou-sama!)
Archer: Tomokazu Seki (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works)
Lancer: Yuu Kobayashi (Vampire in the Garden)

The text—Fake/states night—was originally placed as an April Fools joke on Narita's homepage, presented as a prologue and introduction to a role-playing game. The second volume of TYPE-MOON Ace reissued it as a stand-alone novel form under the title Fate/strange Fake in January 2009.

Kadokawa began publishing it through its Dengeki Bunko imprint in January 2015, featuring illustrations by Shizuki Morii (Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia). The seventh volume went on sale on March 10.

Type-Moon concurrently began releasing a manga adaptation by Narita and Morii digitally under its Type-Moon Books imprint the same month as the light novel, with Kadokawa publishing the print version. The fifth volume also shipped on March 10.

A-1 Pictures produced a promotional video commemorating the release of the sixth light novel volume on New Year's Eve in 2019.

Synopsis
Fate/strange Fake centers around an imperfect copy of a Grail War based on the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. Following the conclusion of the third Grail War, a US-based organization with magi distinct from the London-based Mage Association, used data from Fuyuki's Grail War to plan their own ritual. Seventy years later, they used the city of Snowfield as the Sacred Land for their own Grail War. However, they were unable to successfully replicate every aspect of the ritual, resulting in it acting only as an imitation that has lost the Saber class and allowed for the summoning of strange Servants due to the blurring of the definition of a "hero."

Rohngall and his pupil, Faldeus, have been dispatched by the Mage's Association to investigate the city and the state of the war. Faldeus, a US organization spy, has Rohngall sniped upon his arrival, despite knowing that Rohngall is a puppet. He declares that their Holy Grail War has been in development and is real, causing a commotion at the Clock Tower, and that he wishes to "advertise" the project to the Association.

At first I wondered why Saber isn't voiced by Takahiro Sakurai, but after checking wiki, I get it.

Nice!
Sadly, it will be a special episode instead of a full cour anime.

The Author once stated that he would refuse all Anime adaptations as long as he didn't finished his Novel , so i was septic about the rumor...
But it still get a Special at least , i'm not really disappointed.

Never heard of this Fate entry but I'm always sold when it comes to my second favorite anime franchise. Hopefully I enjoy this more that Grand Order but the fact that Sawagoat is attached to this makes me hyped

For one I am kind of sad it's only a Special, but that was to be expected as the author stated there will be no Anime till the original LN is finished. On the other hand, everytime Type-Moon release a Special Episode on December 31st, a full anime is announced and/or released the following year or two (Lord El-Melloi IIs Case Files and Grand Order).

guys based on the recent trend of Fate anime shows im sure the TV adaptation will follow like late 2023 since other recent Fate anime airs a special episode by the end of the year then followed by a TV anime by next year so relax the TV anime will come

Well, let's see how the combination of author i love and franchise i don't like goes. 1 special episode is too short though, hope a full series comes afterwards.

After hollow ataraxia. I know someone's going to ask, that's when.

Not my favourite but ok. I'd prefer a sequel to Case Files or anything from Requiem.
