A while back on our main Netflix 2018 round-up article, we reported that anime fans over in the United States and Canada would be able to watch the remainder of Fate/Apocrypha during the month of February. Much like the first cour’s arrival the rest of the world had to wait another month for unknown reasons, but today we can confirm that the launch date has finally been revealed for all of the remaining territories outside US & Canada that currently have Netflix access.
The UK, Ireland, and everyone else will be able to watch the rest of Fate/Apocrypha on 31st March 2018. The showpage is already available with the first 12 episodes so you can prepare yourself until it’s arrival.
Fate/Apocrypha aired during the Summer 2017 anime season and was animated by studio A-1 Pictures. The story is based on a series of light novels of the same name written by Yūichirō Higashide and published by Type-Moon across five volumes during 2012-2014. The story takes place in a parallel universe to the Fate/stay night franchise.

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.
