The series also reunites the FATE/STAY NIGHT series’ popular characters and all-star cast including Noriaki Sugiyama as Shirou Emiya, Ayako Kawasumi as Saber, Kana Ueda as Rin Tohsaka, Noriko Shitaya as Sakura Matou, and Yu Asakawa as Rider. The opening theme is “Apron Boy” by self-proclaimed foodie, hip hop rapper DJ Misoshiru to MC Gohan and ending theme “Collage” is by Sangatsu no Phantasia, who also sings the ending theme for KIZNAIVER.
