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.

Fate/Extra Last Encore will hit Japanese TV on January 27. The full broadcast schedule is as follows:

  • Tokyo MX: 1/27/2018 at 24:00 (1/28/2018 at midnight)
