Fate/stay night Unlimited Bladeworks' manga adaptation launching late December 2021

The popular Fate/stay night Unlimited Bladeworks anime franchise will receive an inaugural manga adaptation launching later this month. Authored by Daisuke Moriyama, the adaptation will serialize in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine.

Initially arriving as a video game, Fate/stay night Unlimited Bladeworks also has an anime film and TV adaptation. Adding a manga to the collection is a great choice to expand on the series’ accessibility.

Fate/stay night Unlimited Bladeworks centers on Shirou Emiya, a teenager who is unwillingly thrust into the fifth Holy Grail War. Orphaned by the previous Holy Grail conflict, Shirou was subsequently adopted by Kiritsugu Emiya.

In the Holy Grail War, combatants fight with magic and summoned champions. These champions are either inspired by historical figures from the past or adhere to mythological origins. Shirou summons his champion (also called servant), Saber, after being attacked by another Lancer class foe.

Shirou then joins forces with secondary protagonist Rin Tohsaka and her champion, Archer. This marks his official entry into the Holy Grail War and with it, his desire to prevent any future tragedy arising from Grail disputes.
