If you're a fan of Fate/stay night, you probably have already watched the spin-off series titled Fate/Apocrypha. It seems that the entire franchise by Type-Moon turned quite successful. A-1 Pictures Inc. usually picks up various promising fantasy stories to adapt into the anime series. This time, another anime adaptation of the epic light novel appeared on the small screens thanks to their efforts. However, given the fact that Season 1 of Fate/Apocrypha will conclude sooner or later, you likely wonder, is the A-1 Pictures studio going to produce one more season for the anime series? Well, let's attempt to figure out.
Just now, there is no reason to worry, as Season 1 of the anime consists of twenty-five episodes. Each episode comes out after a seven-day delay. The first season of Fate/Apocrypha started off on July 2, 2017. Therefore, it should conclude on December 10, 2017, or closer to this date.
As a result, at best, the A-1 Pictures studio will announce a next season of Fate/Apocrypha in 2018. So, if Season 2 of the series would finally happen, its launch will be just in late 2018, or rather at the beginning of 2019. We just want you to know this fact, because, the production of the entire season takes at least one year.
Nonetheless, we described the typical scenario. Sometimes, a studio is producing anime in parallel with the issuing of the new episodes of the current season. Thus, perhaps, A-1 Pictures is going to announce a Season 2 of Fate/Apocrypha before the Season 1 finale. The worst scenario is that the series will go on hiatus. But we hope that Fate/Apocrypha will manage to avoid this destiny. However, frequently, this happens to many anime series, because they don't regularly update, unlike the regular US shows.
Well, what about the odds? First of all, we will have to note the positive response of the target audience. Fate/Apocrypha has a score of 7.55/10 based on over 15,000 votes on MyAnimeList. It is quite a reliable indicator of such a kind of anime. Secondly, on July 10, 2017, Aniplex announced that Netflix picked up the anime to stream on their network. The Japanese premiere of the series took place on July 3, 2017. Meanwhile, the US premiere is scheduled for November 7, 2017.
In fact, this is a very positive signal for any series if Netflix takes it to broadcast, because, eventually, the streaming service might pick up the series for a next season even if the original producer lost interest in its product. Also worth noting that the worldwide release of Fate/Apocrypha to follow on December 2, 2017. It seems that this anime would be a long-term project.
SynopsisThe story focuses on the disappearance of the Greater Grail. In spite of this, the subsequent Holy Grail Wars are continuing to happen. However, during the fifth war, one family declares that they possess the relic. Besides, they're going to leave the Mage's Association. To regain the artifact, the Association dispatches a squad of magi. But a powerful Servant kills all of them, excepting just one. Thanks to his efforts, the reserve system of the Holy Grail was activated that caused the appearance of fourteen another Servants.
Thus, an epic battle unfolds between two fractions. The Black one is going to preserve the relic in their hands. The Red one is attempting to take the Grail back. Meanwhile, the Grail itself summoned to its own Servant, who is watching for the collision.
