During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Luke Kang, Disney's president of the Asia Pacific region, spoke about the continually growing global popularity of anime and said that producing more content in the category was Disney's top priority for the Japanese market. The Fable will also air in Japan on Nippon TV, but Disney has exclusive worldwide streaming rights.

The original manga The Fable was written and illustrated by Katsuhisa Minami and was published in Japan's Weekly Young Magazine from 2014 to 2019, selling tens of millions of copies. The adaptation is animated by Tezuka Productions and directed by anime industry veteran Ryƍsuke Takahashi.

The series follows a legendary assassin named 'Fable' who has trained his entire life to become the best assassin in the world. Fable is known in the underworld for his skills and knows nothing more than to deliver a quick death. After ending the year with more confirmed murders than ever, Fable is suddenly at his wits' end when the head of his crime family orders him to lay low for a year and not kill anyone. Suddenly uprooted, relocated to Osaka and surrounded by trigger-happy criminals, Fable will be forced to control his temperament and adapt to the ordinary if he is to survive.

The Fable is voiced by some anime industry favorites: Kazuyuki Okitsu as Fable/Akira Sato, Miyuki Sawashiro as Yoko Sato, Kana Hanazawa as Misaki Shimizu, Akio Otsuka as Takeshi Ebihara, Kenjiro Tsuda as Kojima, Tetsuo Komura as Boss and Jun Fukushima as Jackal Tomioka.

The Fable was adapted for television by Yuya Takashima and Mayumi Morita.
