Fate/Zero English Dub Premieres This Week. Watch A Trailer Inside

By Ishaan . April 16, 2013 . 1:30pm

Fate/Zero’s English dub will premiere on Viz Media’s Neon Alley anime streaming service on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this Friday. Viz Media have shared a trailer that gives one a taste of the English voice cast, while Anime News Network report a second clip from Aniplex, with two of the dub’s voice actors.


Here’s the Viz trailer, featuring clips of the Servant summoning ritual:



And below is the clip featuring Crispin Freeman (Kirei Kotomine) and Matthew Mercer (Kiritsugu Emiya). A lot of you may recognize Mercer as the voice of Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening.



Fate/Zero will premiere on Neon Alley at 8:30pm Eastern in North America this Friday.

    Cant wait to watch this and go to the Accelerated World this friday, hype. Good dub for F/Z. (ryunosuke got the best voice).

  • riceisnice

    Those voices were absolute sex.

  • The second video was so awkward but very entertaining at the same time.

  • Rudy Soto

    Kinda weird that Kariya and Archer now have the same voice actor.

    • True, but Liam at least makes Kariya sound distinguishable. Plus Lancer has Grant George. While also weird, I find that to be necessary.

    • MXC

      And with that I’d like to quote typemoon_ebooks ahem: “why is kotomine now rider, why is gil now lancer, why is assassin now archer, zelretch what have you done” amusing but confusing.

  • The second video is absolutely golden! xD

  • Randgriz

    I cant wait until the new generation of english anime voice actors break through. Liam O’Brien is in everything =_=

    • I’ve been waiting for this!

    • Alberto Maytorena

      If I hadn’t read it was O’Brien voicing Kariya I wouldn’t have known it was him .__. really odd… since I recognized him in Asura’s Wrath and NieR.

  • Strid

    Ugh, that English promo trailer was painful to watch.

  • Solomon_Kano

    The dub’s sounding pretty good. Mercer was a good choice for Kiritsugu.

    That said, I need to hear Iskander. Whether I watch the show again for the dub or not rides on his voice — pun fully intended.

    • He’s voiced by Jamieson Price. :)

      • Solomon_Kano

        So… he’s voiced by Tager? I can dig it!

        • And Diethard, and Ovan, and Lu Bu, and Noob Saibot, Largo, Duke, AND Malik. Rider is in perfect hands.


          • Solomon_Kano

            I completely forgot he voiced Ovan. Yea, Iskander’s definitely in good hands.

            But ohhhh snap, I didn’t know he was Noob Saibot! Probably because I haven’t played an MK game in years, but Saibot was always my favorite.

          • Iskandar is voiced by the same VA tht voiced Malik!? YES.

            On the vid: Cool ppl don’t look at the enemy while killing them I see.

      • Göran Isacson

        Iron Tager is now Rider.

        I am COMPLETELY okay with this.

    • I can’t help but think of you every time anyone mentions him now.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Ha! :D

  • They don’t understand how the characters should sound at all.

    For example Kiritsu doesn’t beleive there’re good things in life since he always lost what was important for him (he is jaded by life). Karya is a someone who make low profile in his life but has a lot of “ambition” inside him so when he usually speal he will always have a low voice at first which reflect his discrete personality.

    That’s why I usually dislike aime dub.

    • “For example Kiritsu doesn’t beleive there’re good things in life since he always lost what was important for him (he is jaded by life).”

      He’s saying that as part of the incantation. :P

    • Luna Kazemaru

      knew we would atleast get one of these.

  • I assume this is the first season? Will watch.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m loving it!

  • mega jew

    Subbed is always better.

    • Alberto Maytorena

      Yeah… like Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop and Dragon Ball Z.

  • Aristides

    is it possible to watch this on my PC?

    • ZEROthefirst

      PS3/360 only for the time being as far as I know.

      • Aristides

        crap… so much for that

  • evilmoogle

    It’s finger licking’ good.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Well looks like it’s time to finally set-up my Neon Alley account to start watching Fate/Zero again. Accel World’s supposed to start the same day, but I couldn’t stand the show originally and dropped it (first anime I ever dropped that wasn’t entirely a school life series). Might give it a 2nd try just because it’s there, but not expecting much from it again.

  • 果林

    The chant in japanese sounds way more catchy

  • LDM

    I saw the dub premiere at Sakura-Con and I am really impressed. Too bad I can’t afford Neon Valley, but if Fate/Zero gets a Blu-Ray release (not the ultra pricey box set out now), I am definitely getting it.

  • I KNEW this section will turn into a dub vs sub whining…

    The dubs sounds OK to me. Need moar Iskandar and less Zouken/Tokiomi plz.

  • “You bring a knife to a gun fight?” Well in Mercer. Well in!
