We’re almost as behind on the coverage of Fate/Apocrypha as studio A-1 is on its production, but it remains a project that’s earned its right to be covered in detail without skipping to its most recent accolades. You can expect these posts to go up very consistently so that we can be fully caught up soon. But for now, here’s the beginning of its second cours!
Digital animators have been putting out some of the most impressive work anime has to offer over the last few years. Today we present you one of the leaders of a new wave within that movement, which introduces a more human element to those flashy spectacles. Meet Nakaya Onsen, who has been receiving lots of attention as one of the stars in the astounding Fate/Apocrypha #22!
The first half of Fate/Apocrypha has been made available for worldwide maybe some western audiences if they’re lucky after what feels like a millennia, so as usual, here’s a post containing links to our coverage of what’s available thus far. See you in five years next year for the second half!
There’s plenty to cover this time as we go through the last episodes that wrapped up Apocrypha‘s first cours. Story developments, a look into the staff’s continued attention to detail, as well as insight into the state of the production itself as it makes its way into the second cours!
If you’re in need of an example of something which more than lived up to the hype, then look no further than this episode. As it turns out, the staff weren’t lying when they promised an episode you shouldn’t miss. From spectacular action to surprisingly inspired depictions of tragic pasts, this episode’s got it all!
After a brief respite we’ve arrived to the first big clash of the series, which offers an opportunity to all the exceptional digital animators tied to this project to prove their worth. Things are heating up, and the episode all creators keep hyping is coming next!
The focus has shifted back to the Great Grail War itself after some time spent with Jeanne and Sieg, which naturally entails the return of the show’s prominent action sequences. The trend of notable industry figures coming along to help is going strong, too, so let’s see how their craft influences things this time around.
