So, we have the mainline, the magical girl spinoff, the cheeky comedy, and now a cooking show. Which genre will this franchise tackle next?
Earlier today, Kadokawa and Type-Moon opened a website to announce that TAa’s Emiya-sanchi no Kyō no Gohan (Today’s Menu for Emiya Family) manga will receive an anime adaptation.
The site launched with the first staff and cast members, as well as a key visual. We break the details down below.
The image features an interior shot of a grocery store, facing out toward the street. Shiro Emiya and Saber can be seen looking in the doorway, while Sakura and Rider pass by in the background.
Series creator TAa also released an illustration to celebrate the news:
