A stage play adaptation of Lord El-Melloi II-sei no Jikenbo (Lord El-Melloi II's Case Files), Makoto Sanda's mystery novel spinoff series in Type-Moon's Fate franchise, has been green-lit for this winter.
The novels center on the titular character Lord El-Melloi II, the adult Waver Velvet from Fate/Zero, and successor of Kayneth, as well as Lord El-Melloi II's apprentice Gray. The story takes place in the Clock Tower, the Mage's Association's headquarters in England. There, Lord El-Melloi II and Gray solve various mysteries of a magical nature surrounding the Mage's Association.
Sanda published the first novel in the series in December 2014. The ninth novel shipped on December 31, and Type-Moon Books will publish the 10th and final volume on May 17. Kadokawa Bunko is also publishing a smaller page-size bunko-ban edition over the course of five months, starting this month.
