Carnival Phantasm is a comedy sketch OVA based on the Take-MOON manga written by Eri Takenashi to celebrate TYPE-MOON’s 10th anniversary.

It combines two intensely popular franchises, Fate and Tsukihime, taking place in the “Nasuverse” (named aptly by fans after the author, Kinoko Nasu) as the characters from TYPE-MOON’s original works go through various light-hearted scenarios, which parody their respective series.

Just remember two things before sitting down to watch Carnival Phantasm or FGC; your knowledge of TYPE-MOON lore is directly proportional to the amount of enjoyment you will get and leave your sanity at the door.
