Is There A Trailer for This Anime?

There is indeed! You can check out the brand-new trailer below:

What Happened In Episode 1?

In The Fable Episode 1, the narrator introduces viewers to our protagonist Fable. He’s currently targeting a group of criminals. Although the criminals put up a decent effort against him, Fable defeats them. Later, Fable meets with his female comrade (later named Yoko). She takes him to the dock to discuss things with their boss. 

Fable’s boss tells him and Yoko that they must lay low for a while because they tackled too many missions. His boss informs him about a yakuza group in Osaka and says they can assist them with their transition. Lastly, his boss says if he or Yoko kill anyone, he’ll kill them. Fable’s unsure about it all at first, but complies. 

He and Yoko return to Fable’s current base. Fable gathers some belongings and stores most of his weapons in the microwave for his boss to collect the next day. He plans to bring his Nighthawk firearm’s body because he doesn’t want to part ways with it. Simultaneously, Yoko hands Fable his fake I.D. and other tools he needs. 

The two head to a rest stop. Fable spots two car thieves and promises Yoko that he won’t cause trouble. Unfortunately, the car thieves approach Fable and he hurts them to Yoko’s dismay. The two argue about this briefly in their car ride to Osaka. Once they arrive, Fable uses his dialect-switch method. Then, the two head to a shop to buy new clothes. 

We cut away to Hiroshi and Takeshi. The former is the Maguro Yakuza Group’s boss while the latter is its captain. They discuss Fable briefly. The chapter ends with Hiroshi telling Takeshi that he shouldn’t worry about Fable. 

We’ve covered the entire episode with a lengthy recap that touches on all major plot points and discusses the chapter with an accompanying review. You can find that link below.
