The film’s story begins 10 years after the Holy Grail War — a battle waged by Masters and Servants over the wish-granting container — as another war breaks out in Fuyuki City. Shirou Emiya, the adopted son of veteran Kiritsugu Emiya, resolves to fight, carrying out Kiritsugu’s dying wish. As the war breaks out and violence abounds in the city, Shirou takes in Sakura Matou, the young girl who cooks his meals and carries a secret love for him. Along with Saber, the Servant he summons, Shirou allies himself with the magus Rin Tohsaka — but the battle starts to go awry as secret maneuvers by unseen forces are put into play.
Based on the popular franchise that gave anime fans Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works], Fate/Zero and the hit mobile game Fate/Grand Order, the movie weaves epic action and heart-wrenching drama with original author Kinoko Nasu’s unique storytelling and otherworldly cast of characters.
The English dub case includes voice over all-stars Kari Wahlgren as Saber, Bryce Papenbrook as Shirou Emiya, Mela Lee as Rin Tohsaka, Kyle McCarley as Shinji Matou, Kaiji Tang as Archer, Crispin Freeman as Kirei Kotomine and Cristina Vee as heroine Sakura Matou. Tomonori Sudo (the Garden of sinners -recalled out summer-) directed the film, which features a soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Sword Art Online). Animation was provided by franchise collaborator studio ufotable.
