A-1 is vastly superior to Ufoshit, so what's your problem here? Fuck off.

Jeanne will ruin apocrypha anyway so...

The bells sounds in the end sound very fitting. Anyway, I want to see this.

A-1 art style in this is absolute shit and doesn't suit TYPE-MOON.

I hoped they'd reveal a voice actor for Sisigou as well. Too bad.

Summer 2017 looks SOOOO promising.... let's hope it doesn't ends as dissapointing as the last one.

It curious, before this was announced, I thought the studio would cast Natsuki Hanae as Sieg, and it looks I was right.

Lol, Saori Hayami will now be in every show to play? She popular seiyu, why does she need so many roles.

Mar 26, 2017 2:10 AM by RobertBobert

Saber of red and Ruler best voices yay.

Mar 26, 2017 12:57 AM by Swagernator

Wasn't gonna watch this before but Hanae! Now I'm excited.

Mar 26, 2017 12:41 AM by komasan

yahooo, another series which i can watch on netflix

Mar 26, 2017 12:31 AM by AcceleratorAngel

I can't wait!

Trailer was enough for me to see this will be as amazing and beautiful as fifth Kara no Kyokai movie, and Fate/Zero adaptation by ufotable.

There aren't words in this univers good enough for me to describe how amazed I am by this.

Please, A1 Pictures, please make Grand Order adaptation too with Scathach and Cu as main characters.

So let me get this straight.
Apocrypha(One of the worst fate works) adaptation.
By A1 Pictures.
And now it is Netflix exclusive.

Whew it will fail hard in the west considering all that. Well at least I will see animated Semiramis(even if with downgraded design sadly) before the show's plot starts falling apart.

Mar 25, 2017 10:49 PM by Ahenshihael

Sure why not, i'll watch it for Astolfo the best trap.

while going with color-class is correct, the colors are essentially the factions of the Servants so it's kinda better to translate them as Berserker of Black(faction), Saber of Red(faction), etc which is also another way of doing it. It was also made to distinguish the Red Saber in Extra because 赤のセイバー(Apoc) and
赤セイバー(Extra) can both be translated as Red Saber. So the Saber in red in Apoc is Saber of Red and so the others in Apoc followed suit in format.

Adjusted. Thanks for the suggestion, belatkuro.

>Black Berserker: Ai Nonoka (Clannad)
Nonaka

Was hoping for Suzumura for Sieg for maximum shipping with his wife Sakamoto but Hanae fits I guess. Not bad for the voices of Rider and Assassin of Red and Caster and Archer of Black who aren't in FGO yet(when DW) since everyone else is in. Should be fun.

aw Netflix exclusive that means we have to hope/wish that some fansub group will pick this up if you are a pirate

Mar 25, 2017 9:40 PM by deg

Now 2017 is considered a great year!

Let's hope that they'll do this justice

Mar 25, 2017 9:19 PM by MadSc

The PV actually made me look even more forward for this... well despite not knowing shit about this one. I mean I'm pretty much looking forward to it in a sense, so I do hope for the best that it does well.

(No I'm not dickriding because there's a difference xD)
