Based on the novel by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Blassreiter), Fate/Zero acts as a prequel to Type-Moon's Fate/Stay night visual novel software. Now the stage will be set for war on Crunchyroll, which just added the series to its fall lineup.
Fate/Zero will stream every Saturday at 9am PST, starting October 8. It will be available in the following territories: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
“Ten years prior to the events of FATE/STAY NIGHT, the War of the Holy Grail is a contest in which seven magi summon seven Heroic Spirits to compete to obtain the power of the “Holy Grail,” which grants a miracle. After three inconclusive wars for the elusive Holy Grail, the Fourth War commences.
Kiritsugu finds himself deeply torn between family and duty – obtaining the Holy Grail. However, his greatest opponent appears in the form of Kirei Kotomine, a priest who cannot find any sense of fulfillment in his life and sets his sights on Kiritsugu as the possible answer to the emptiness he feels.”
