With Japan, the United States and Canada already able to stream the series, the rest of the world will soon be able to do the same.
Earlier this year Netflix and Aniplex had announced that the latest Fate adaptation – Fate/Apocrypha – would be available exclusively on Netflix for international streaming services. The show began airing in Japan during the Summer 2017 season, but everyone else had to wait until most of the episodes were done. Aniplex of America eventually announced the US & Canada streaming launch date but the rest of the world had to wait a fair bit longer.
While the reveal date has been known for a while, it’s a good heads up to let everyone know that the series will be available for International audiences outside Japan, United States and Canada starting 2nd December 2017 for the first 12 episodes of the series. The remaining episodes will likely turn up sometime during the Winter 2018 season, based on the speed which Little Witch Academia received. Multiple dubbed languages and subtitles will be available for the series, much like the other anime titles exclusive to the Netflix streaming platform.
UPDATE 1st December: The show page and trailer are now available to access on Netflix UK! In addition the first half of the series have been rated 15 by the British Board of Film Classification for strong bloody violence, injury detail, sex references, language.

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.
