Aniplex Online Fest 2022 just can’t stop spitting out some incredibly interesting anime news.
During the Announcements section of Aniplex Online Fest 2022, the following anime series were shown for the first time.
Fate/Strange Fake: Whisper of Dawn will be the first Fate story to take place in the United States. It is said that you will not need any prior knowledge of anything in the Fate series to enjoy Fate/Strange Fake: Whisper of Dawn.
The TYPE-MOON wiki offers a good plot synopsis, writing:
The Wizards’ Association has sent Rohngall and his student, Faldeus, to investigate the city and the state of the war. Faldeus, a spy for the American organization, shot Rohngall upon arrival, despite knowing that Rohngall was merely a puppet. He announces that his Holy Grail War has been in progress and that it is real, causing an uproar in the Clock Tower and wishing to “announce” the project to the Association.
The second announcement was about My Love Story With Yamada-Kun at Lv999, and it 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 he met in the game, Akane Kinoshita learns the hard way that gamer boyfriends can be just as bad as the offline variety. As she vents her anger by beating the mob monsters to a pulp, she has a chance encounter with Akito Yamada, a fellow guild member in an Afro and Noh mask.
Yamada is sullen and gruff, hardly the kind of person to make Akane swoon. However, while his game stats may be maxed out, Yamada is inexperienced in matters of the heart, and against all odds, she is moved by him. Making new friends along the way, can Akane shake the heart of Yamada, a final boss level high school boy?
Eisen Flugel will be adapted as an anime film from Aniplex, it is based on a two-volume light novel series.
Myanimelist summarizes the history of the light novels as:
In a world where dragons rule the skies, humanity still dreams of flying, of one day ruling the skies instead. Even in times of war, passionate young pilot Karl Schuniz continues to chase his dreams, taking to his wings of steel, the revolutionary new aircraft, the Blitz Vogel, to challenge the Kaiser Drache, the fastest dragon that can fly at supersonic speeds. .
