On Wednesday, anime publisher Aniplex of America revealed that they would be dubbing their fantasy action series, “Fate/Zero”, and that the English dubbed version would be debuting on Viz Media’s 24-hour anime channel Neon Alley later this year.
“Fate/Zero” is based on the novel written by Gen Urobuchi with illustrations by Takashi Takeuchi and serves as the prequel to “Fate/stay night”, the visual novel from Type-Moon. The series takes place 10 years before the events of “Fate/stay night” and reveals what really happened during the 4th Holy Grail War.
