The Fate/Grand Order Fes. 2017 ~2nd Anniversary~ event took place on 29-30 July 2017 at the Makuhari Messe. On the second day the Fate/Apocrypha Stage Day 2 Premium Talk Show+Live took place.
At the beginning of the event there were Chiaki Akasaki (voice of Fiore), Yusuke Kobayashi (Caules), Maaya Sakamoto (Ruler), Kouki Uchiyama (Shiro Kotomine), Makoto Furukawa (Rider of Red), Rumi Ookubo (Rider of Black), Junichi Suwabe (Saber of Black) and Shunsuke Takeuchi (Archer of Black). The event was hosted by Akasaki and Kobayashi. They were showing off their good chemistry as brother and sister during the event.
After the cast introduced themselves, they started a talk corner about the currently airing Fate/Apocrypha. They were talking about the Mage’s Association (the Red Faction) as well as the Yggdmillennia family (the Black Faction). They introduced the Black Faction and also talked about the important topic of servant and master. Fiore and her Rider of Black as well as Caules and his Berserker of Black have a very good relationship and it seems the whole relationship within the family is built on trust.
Next the Red Faction was introduced, but when it came to the masters, many spots were still kept in black because they are still unknown. The Black Faction is very close to each other, because they are a family, but the Red Faction has very strong magical abilities, so they act more independently during the Holy Grail War. Shiro Kotomine from the Red Faction stands out the most and will be the person holding the key to solve the mystery. In the end, the cast wasn’t able to talk much about the Red Faction.
Then they started talking about the recording session. In one scene, the Rider of Red had to whistle but it wasn’t Furukawa who whistled but Takeuchi.
Finally, Ruler was introduced, the one who is guiding the Holy Grail War. A video played and showed scenes that gave the impression of a very soft and nice Ruler, but then there were also scenes that show her take the lead herself and it seems like we will get to see a variety of emotions from her soon. It was also said that the interaction between Sieg, who owes his life to Saber of Black, and Ruler should be followed closely.
After the talk event was over, a mini concert followed. EGOIST, who perform the opening theme ‘Eiyuu Unmei no Uta’, were shown in a video made for the exhibition and GRANiDELiA were live on stage, singing the ending theme ‘Désir’. The audience enjoyed the live music.
After the performance it was time to end the event, so GARNiDELiA and the cast members faced the audience and said their ending words. Only five episodes of Fate/Apocrypha have aired so far, but there has already been so much happening that you need to be sure to keep an eye on this series!
