  • Lancer: Yu Kobayashi (Enkidu in Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia)

And here’s a list of the confirmed English voice cast.

Author Ryohgo Narito originally conceived Fate/strange Fake as an April Fool’s joke in 2008, which was then adapted into a short story published in Type-Moon Ace 2 magazine in 2009. In 2015 it was further adapted into an ongoing novel series, with illustrations by Shidzuki Morii. It takes place in the city of Snowfield, Nevada, where mages from the United States attempt to conduct a ritual based on the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. However, they failed to recreate it, leading to the summoning of “False Servants” and the creation of “False Masters”.

Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn will air on December 31, 2022. Aniplex of America has licensed it for Western release.
