Aniplex Online Fest 2022 can’t stop churning out incredibly interesting new anime.
During the Announcements section of Aniplex Online Fest 2022, the following anime series debuted.
Fate/Strange Fake: Whisper of Dawn will be the first Fate story to take place in America. That said, you won’t need any prior knowledge of anything in the Fate series to enjoy Fate/Strange Fake: Whisper of Dawn.
The TYPE-MOON wiki gives a nice summary of the plot, writing:
The Mage’s Association sent Rohngall and his apprentice, Faldeus, to investigate the city and the state of war. Faldeus, a spy for the American organization, made Rongal snipe upon his arrival, even though he knew Rongal was just a puppet. He announces that the Holy Grail War is underway and that it is real, which causes an uproar in the Clock Tower and wishes to “advertise” the project to the Guild.
The second announcement was for My Love Story With Yamada-Kun at Lv999 and comes from creator Mashiro, who is also the mangaka of the manga this anime is based on.
Myanimelist describes this as:
After her boyfriend cheats on her with another girl she met in-game, Akane Kinoshita learns the hard way that gamer friends can be just as bad as the offline variety. As she vents her anger by beating mobster monsters, she has a chance encounter with Akito Yamada, an afro-masked fellow and No.
Yamada is unusual and sharp, not the type of person to make Akane swoon. However, while his gaming stats may be maxed out, Yamada is inexperienced in matters of the heart and, against all odds, is moved by him. Making new friends along the way, can Akane win the heart of Yamada, a final boss-level high school boy?
Eisen Flugel will be adapted as an anime film originating from Aniplex, based on a two-volume light novel series.
Myanimelist summarizes the history of light novels as follows:
In a world where dragons rule the skies, humanity still dreams of flying, of someday ruling the skies in their place. Even in times of war, passionate young pilot Karl Schuniz continues to chase his dreams, raising his wings of steel – the revolutionary new aircraft, the Blitz Vogel – to challenge the Kaiser Drache, the fastest dragon he can fly with supersonic speeds.
Aniplex Online Fest 2022 was a wild ride. Check out the anime based on NieR: Automata as well as new Berserk: The Golden Age Arc – Memorial Edition details.
