Thunderbolt Fantasy Puppet Series Teams Up With Fate/Grand Order for April Fool's Video
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Good Smile Company is posted a video on April 1 showcasing the characters of Fate/Grand Order as highly detailed puppets in the series Thunderbolt Fantasy. The five-minute video (which should just be a real thing, pretty please) shows Lǐn Xuě Yā summon Saber from a scroll. Saber is forced to fight against Shāng Bù Huàn who is currently under the enemy's control.
The short includes all the high-drama action and hair flips that Thunderbolt Fantasy fans expect from the series. The wuxia-influenced stop-motion series has a prominent connection to the Fate franchise. Thunderbolt Fantasy is written and supervised by Gen Urobuchi, the author of Fate/Zero novel. He's previously written a scenario for the Fate/Grand Order mobile game.
Thunderbolt Fantasy: Tōriken Yūki 3 will premiere on April 3 on Tokyo MX, BS NTV, and the Bandai Channel. Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs in Japan.
