The plot centers around a Grail War faultily copied from the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. After the end of the third Grail War, an organization from the United States that has magi separate from the London-based Mage Association as members took data from Fuyuki's Grail War and planned their own ritual. After seventy years, they used the city Snowfield as the Sacred Land for their own Grail War. They were unable to successfully copy every aspect of the ritual, which lead to it acting only as an imitation that has lost the Saber class and allowed for the summoning of strange Servants due to the definition of a "hero" being blurred.

Originally conceived as an April Fools joke on Narita's homepage, the text, titled Fake/states night, was removed following April 1, 2008. It was later released in a revised novel format included with the second volume of TYPE-MOON Ace (2009). In 2015 it was officially published as a light novel by Kadokawa under Dengeki Bunko label.

As a person who just recently got into Fate series, I never thought I'd ever dig up this little gem--and fall in love with it no less.

I'm sure most are aware already but in case you aren't, Fate Strange Fake *as of now* is only a prologue that will soon be adapted into another Light Novel and into a Manga--so take that into account as I review this.

Story 8/10- Very Good

What the story has is great potential. It's one of those that could either be really great or fall flat.

So, I'll keep it short first. What if Fate/Zero is actually great and was able to draw out it's full potential. That is basically what Fate/Strange Fake is.

Started as a Fanfic of Ryohgo Narita(Durarara, Baccano) in about 2008 and officially becoming one of the entries in the Fate series, Fate/Strange Fake is one of the best Fate spin-off we had and could be the best of them all depending on how Narita does it's end.

Shizuki Mori's art is good and I want to see more of it.
Just like what people say about Fate/Zero, it pretty much have almost no main character.
And just like his other ...
