Fate/Apocrypha is a series of Light Novels based on a new Holy Grail War (seperate to the five Fukuyu wars), written with the help of several other authors and artists and with various details and character designs collected in Fate/complete material IV Extra material. It was originally conceived as a joint-project MMORPG by Type-Moon (now cancelled).

The first act was published in the Type-Moon Ace magazine. Written by Yuichiro Higashide, Act 1: Unbirth for the magazine revolves around the magus Hyouma Sagara, attempting to summon Jack the Ripper as a Servant.

Jack t. Ripper? Sounds very badass, and the title sounds epic as well. Is it a spin-off or in the same universe?

This version is not really 'badass' though:

Okay. How does Jack the Ripper, notorious serial killer that killed many protitutes in London in the late 1800s....turn into that? What reasoning do they come up with for all the murders?

finds it interesting that ubw is the background for that cover. I wonder if it has any implications or merely there due it it being well known and popular. kinda looks like the white light has bored a hole through the marble

this is not a series either, that short story about Jack is all we will ever get for now...

Goddamn Astolfo, (s)he's cute. :uhoh:

Ithekro 2012-01-05 05:05

Actually, that Saber is suppose to be a woman...historically speaking
*and it isn't Arthur....this time.

Xion Valkyrie 2012-01-05 06:23

That Saber is what Saber should have been in the first place...

It's Jeanne d'Arc not Arthur.

Btw, I really want to know how powerful Jeanne is ? She seems to be one of the most powerful servant of the Grail War (with Gil etc..)

Acording to fate/apocrypha this supposed to be the sixth war then right? Fourth fate/zero, fifth fate/stay night but something doesnt add up... according to what i read isnt rin's teacher waver velvet el melloy the second destroy the holy grail at the end of the fifth war? after fate/hollow ataraxia i guess...or maybe the three family that created the holy grail created it again? or did the destruction fail/incomplete? which cause the reason each participant must bring it's own vessel of the holy grail instead of it being managed by einzbern family.. and it seems according to the wiki the church didnt fully supervised the war instead it create a new class.. a ruler class (saber class...the one that gilles so infatuated with.. joan of arc)which role is to supervise the war directly...church just an add on this time i guess... i assume this to prevent problem that cause disaster in the last two war (kirei's cheating, gilles de rais indiscriminated murder...you know...) and manage if one arise, it is said in the wiki holy grail usually didnt manage the game directly, i guess the last two war change a lot of things. and from the list of cast why they manage to summon jack the ripper, vlad? isnt they not exactly a heroic spirit (it is said it jack the ripper is a reverse heroic spirit...what does it mean?)? is the holy grail spirit still defiled by angra maiyu? isnt it already taken care of in Fate/ hollow ataraxia? or is it?? and why is it fourteen instead of seven, is it a new rules incorporated by the holy grail maker or just by the whim of the holy grail itself? many question...

I went to the wiki and it uses "he" to describe astolfo. So, is he a trap in disguise or just reverse trap like Yukimura?

Lisemer 2012-01-05 09:35

He's supposed to be one of the most beautiful persons in the world, and what's more beautiful than a trap? :heh:

That is just how he looks

He should be glad he is in a different war then Alex or Nero, since both are switch hitters :heh:

japanese fans should just bother them about tsukihime or fate 2 so we might get something on those in the next TMA :D

Fate 2? I thought they only had a Tsukihime 2 in the works (and Mahou Tsukai no Yoru)?
