Head Translator: Eternal Dreamer (collaboration with CanonRap)
Novel Summary (From Type-Moon Wiki): The setting of Fate/Apocrypha is a parallel world to Fate/stay night where the Greater Grail was removed from Fuyuki after the Third Holy Grail War and disappeared for many years. Around the 2000s, around the same time as the Fifth Holy Grail War would have happened, the group that plundered the Grail, Yggdmillennia, openly declares their secession from the Mage’s Association and that they are in possession of the Grail. The Association dispatches fifty magi to retrieve it, but all but one are instantly slaughtered by Lancer of Black. The one remaining manages to activate the reserve system of the Greater Grail, allowing for the summoning of fourteen Servants in total.
This marks the start of the Great Holy Grail War in Trifas, featuring two different factions: the Black Faction, whose members are part of Yggdramillennia, and the Red Faction, whose members were sent by the Mage’s Association with the exception of one from the Church. The Grail itself also summons Ruler to act as a mediator of the Holy Grail War.
Type Moon fans rejoice! As you can read in Eternal’s intro post on the translation site, Fate/Apocrypha has long been one of the novels he’s wanted to translate, and we are ecstatic to welcome it as our newest project. With this and the opening of the FSN remake this season, I’m sure Type Moon fans will have much cause for celebration. Even if you haven’t been introduced to the Fate universe, go and check it out! It promises to be an exhilarating ride.
This will also be ND’s first collaboration project ever; we will be working with CanonRap over at Quality Mistranslations to bring this novel to you readers; he has already finished Volume 1, so Eternal Dreamer will be starting from Volume 2.
Thanks as always for everyone’s continuing support!
