Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn Anime Special Premiering Summer 2023; Cast, Staff & New Trailer

Type-Moon and Aniplex have unveiled a new trailer for the previously indefinitely delayed anime special Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn. Years following the Fifth Holy Grail War in Japan, a new Holy Grail spawned in the city of Snowfield, located in Western America.

“Sure enough, Masters and Servants begin to gather…

A missing Servant class…

Impossible Servant summonings…

A nation shrouded in secrecy…

And a city created as a battleground.

In the face of such irregularities, the Holy Grail War is twisted and driven into the depth of madness.

Let the curtain rise on a masquerade of humans and heroes, made to dance upon the stage of a false Holy Grail.”

Fate/strange Fake is a light novel series that began being penned by Ryohgo Narita in 2015, though its actual origins are an April Fool’s joke from the author in 2008. The narrative follows an imperfectly copied version of the Third Holy Grail War called the False Holy Grail War, comprising several Masters and Servants who are either “True” or “False.”
