Aniplex has announced that it will be offering free streaming of the upcoming anime series of Fate/Zero via NicoNico Douga. It will be streamed worldwise with subtitles in eight different subtitles and each episode will be available online for a week, with the first episode being streamed on 1 Oct 2011 at 8:30am PSD.
The subtitles available are Korean, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
This is probably one of the first time that NicoNico Douga is being used to stream anime for free to fans outside of Japan. Hopefully this trend would continue for more anime series and soon everyone wouldn’t have to rely on illegal downloads anymore.
