Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn Assassin Trailer Released


With less than a week to go before Fate/strange Fake -Whispers of Dawn-‘s July 2 premiere in Japan, Aniplex has released the anime’s first character trailer, which focuses on Assassin (Lynn).

The 20-second video also includes a look at Assassin’s Master, Jester Karture (Tatsumaru Tachibana).

Fate/strange Fake -Whispers of Dawn- is a TV special based on the KADOKAWA-published Fate/strange Fake light novel series written by Ryohgo Narita and illustrated by Shizuki Morii, which is one of the many titles in the massive Fate multimedia franchise. The anime was originally meant to be shown during the Fate Project New Year’s Eve TV Special, before a delay was announced last December.

The Type-Moon wiki describes the premise of the light novel series as:

Fate/strange Fake takes place around 2009. 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 led 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 “hero” being blurred.
