The story of the legendary Fourth Holy Grail War will be dubbed in English and Premiere this Spring.
SANTA MONICA, CA (February 6, 2013) – This year, Fate/Zero fans will be treated to something special. Aniplex of America has just announced that the fantasy action anime Fate/Zero will be dubbed in English and will premiere on the recently-launched 24-hour anime channel Neon Alley. Featuring an all-star English voice cast, the fourth Holy Grail War will battle on the Neon Alley 24-hour anime channel starting this Spring.
Fate/Zero is a novel written by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, PSYCHO PASS) and is a prequel to TYPE-MOON’s hit novel Fate/stay night. The best-selling novel series has since been adapted into a television animated series last year, of which each episode directly covers the original novels. Since its original airing, the popularity of Fate/Zero has grown to an international level.
“We’re very excited to have a fan-favorite title like Fate/Zero as part of Neon Alley’s line-up,” says Hideki Goto, the president of Animation Business of Aniplex of America. “This will be a great chance for Anime fans to re-visit and discover this show in a totally new way.”
