2. Fate/strange fake: Whisper of Dawn
This anime movie is based on a Japanese light novel series. The series features a very interesting story of the Grail War which has been wrongly copied from the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. Things start taking a very different turn when after the third Grail War ends, an organization based in the US has a mage which is very different from the Mage Association based in London. This is because the members retrieved data from Fuyuki’s Grail War and went on to plan their rituals. But things don’t go as well as they had expected them to. They could not copy every single detail of the data as it is and hence missed out on some very important aspects of the ritual. The ritual was thus merely an imitation that did not have the Saber class and very liberally allowed the summoning of strange Servants because the definition of a “hero” got distorted.
The Mage’s Association sends Rohngall and his pupil, Faldeus, to do some investigations in the city and get some updates on the status of the war. Faldeus then announces that the Holy Grail War is in development and is very real! This announcement causes havoc in the clock tower.
The movie is due for release on December 31, 2022, and will be available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
