Manga adapts Gen Urobuchi's light novel series

North American publisher Dark Horse Comics announced at its industry panel at Kumoricon on Monday that it will release manga artist Shinjirō's Fate/Zero manga. The series is the manga adaptation of Gen Urobuchi and Type-Moon's original Fate/Zero light novel series.

The Fate/Zero manga series began serialization in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine in 2011. The Fate/Zero TV anime aired that same year. Kadokawa will ship the eighth compiled volume on September 26 in Japan.

The anime and manga adapt the prequel novel by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Phantom - The Animation, Blassreiter) to Type-Moon's Fate/stay night visual novel software. The story is set a decade before Fate/stay night and reveals the 4th Holy Grail War that sets the stage for the war in the software.

Aniplex of America previously released the Fate/Zero anime in North America in two Blu-ray Disc box sets that were imports of the Japanese release with English subtitles and a translation booklet, followed by a Blu-ray box set with a dub in November. Fate/Zero streamed on Neon Alley with an English dub, and the series streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired.
