Fate/Strange Fake's Anime Special Has Been Delayed

Ryohgo Narita's novel series Fate/Strange Fake is being adapted to animation in a TV special produced by A1 Pictures.

It was supposed to come out at the end of December.

However, a new announcement from the special's Twitter page has sadly relayed that it's being delayed to an as-yet unknown date.

The special, titled "Whispers of Dawn" was announced back in September during Aniplex Online Fest for a December 31 release date, just in time for the new year.

Unfortunately, the announcement of the delay suggests that there have been production issues and that the planned Fate New Year's Special will instead show some of the work in progress.

Ryohgo Narita is an exciting name to hear attached to a Fate project once you're aware of what they've written.

Narita is the writer of Baccano and Durarara, two beloved dramas with huge casts of characters in a complex web of interconnected plot lines.

He began writing the Fate/Strange Fake novels in 2015 and the series is ongoing.
