The official website for Fate/Apocrypha announced that the series will debut on Japanese TV on July 1st and on Netflix on July 3rd. They also began streaming a new trailer. This new trailer is centered around Ruler, which is a servant summoned by the Holy Grail.
Fate/Apocrypha is a five volume light novel series written by Yuuichirou Higashide and illustrated by Ototsugu Konoe. The story takes place in a parallel world to the one in Fate/stay Night.
The Holy Grail is removed from Fuyuki City after the Third Holy Grail War. Decades after the event, the Yggdmillennia family defects from the Mages’ Association and seeks independence. Re-writing the rules of the Holy Grail War, the Yggdmillennia family and the association sends seven mages each to fight for the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail itself has summoned a Ruler-class servant to watch over the war. For convenience sake, the two opposing factions are Black and Red.
Yoshiyuki Asai (Charlotte director) is directing the adaptation, Higashide is writing the script, Masaru Yokoyama (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans music composer) is handling the score, and A-1 Pictures is producing the animation.
Most fans will have to wait until the Winter 2017 season to legally stream the series on Netflix since they have a seasonal delay policy.
In other Fate news, Aniplex of America announced that the North American release of the Fate/Grand Order game will be released on Android and iOS devices on June 25th. They also released a subtitled trailer highlighting Lancer-class Servant Scáthach.
