posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of TYPE-MOON and Yuichiro Higashide's Fate/Apocrypha novels unveiled more of the cast members for the Masters, as well as the latest promotional video and a new themed commercial on Sunday. The "Black Faction/Red Faction" video is the second of three themed commercials for the anime. (Note: The linked videos on the official website are region-locked to Japan.)

Chinatsu Akasaki as Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillennia
Yūsuke Kobayashi as Caules Forvedge Yggdmillennia
Toru Ohkawa as Gordes Musik Yggdmillennia

The third commercial, which will have a "Opening of the Holy Grail War" theme, will premiere on June 24.
In the story, there was once a Holy Grail War waged by seven Mages and Heroic Spirits in a town called Fuyuki. However, a certain Mage took advantage of the chaos of World War II to steal a Holy Grail. Several decades have passed, and the Yggdmillennia family, who took upon the Holy Grail as its symbol, defected from the Mages' Association and declared their independence. Furious, the Association sent a force to deal with the Yggdmillennia, but they were defeated by the summoned Servants. With the Holy Grail War system changed, war at an unprecedented scale, with seven versus seven, breaks out. And so, the curtain rises on the epoch-making Great Holy Grail War.
