Comment from Koki Uchiyama (Shiro Kotomine)
‘Although you can look forward to all the drama happening between characters, there is also the simple appeal of the visuals too. I saw that there is a lot of intense action scenes in the finished product as well as during the recording, so I think it can really meet your expectations. Please watch it.’
Comment from Miyuki Sawashiro (Saber of Red)
‘I hope you can come to love Fate/Apocrypha, which I have voiced a character for. I will go all out in the rest of the recording.’
Comment of Saori Hayami (Archer of Red)
‘I would be happy if you could pay attention to the battles weaved by all the unique characters and the stirring of everybody’s spirits. I think that not only fans of the Fate series, but also those of you new to Fate will be able to enjoy this anime, so please give it a watch.’

Comment from Makoto Furukawa (Rider of Red)
‘Personally, I’m really happy that I get to see Fate/Apocrypha become an animation, and I’m sure the fans of the Fate series are excited too. As somebody that is part of the production and was able to see some of the work, I really do feel like it is an interesting work every time I do the recording. I would be really happy if you could watch the whole outcome of the Holy Grail War. Please look forward to the broadcast.’

Comment from Rumi Okubo (Rider of Black)
‘The Holy Grail War is finally starting. Everyone has their own wish for the Holy Grail and heads to war with that in mind. I hope you can look over the characters’ hopes and feelings right up until their conclusion. Please support us.’
Comment from Mitsuru Miyamoto (Caster of Black)
‘It’s a story on a majestic scale, but it is also many stories about the spirits of each living being. It’s up to us as the cast to bring it to life. The action scenes are, of course, brilliant, but you can also look forward to the human drama.’
