It’s time to get hyped, before the realization that we might not see this until the season’s long over hits…
Earlier today, the official Fate/Extra Last Encore anime website updated with a new TV spot. The 15-second promo features opening theme song Bright Burning Shout by T.M. Revolution as a background track.
