In the story, there was once a Holy Grail War that was waged by seven Mages and Heroic Spirits in a town called Fuyuki. However, there was a certain Mage who took advantage of the chaos of World War II to steal a Holy Grail. Several decades later, 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 strong force to deal with the Yggdmillennia, but they were not strong enough and defeated by the summoned Servants. Now the Holy Grail War system has changed and war breaks out. Thus, the curtain rises on the epoch-making Great Holy Grail War.

Higashide himself is in charge of the anime's series scripts, while Yoshiyuki Asai (Charlotte) is directing at A-1 Pictures. Yūkei Yamada is adapting Ototsugu Konoe's original character designs for the animation. Masaru Yokoyama (The Lost Village, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Nobunaga Concerto) is composing the music.
