The upcoming Fate/stay night TV anime has been revealed to be an adaption of the original visual novel’s “Unlimited Blade Works" route.
This particular adaption is being marketed as a sequel to 2011’s Fate/Zero, which is an adaption of a prequel novel series that takes place 10 years prior to Fate/stay night.
UFOtable (Fate/Zero, Kara no Kyoukai/Garden of Sinners) will be handling the animation with Takahiro Miura (Garden of Sinners Movie 6) directing, Tomonori Sudou (Fate/Zero, Garden of Sinners) in charge of character designs, and Hideyuki Fukasawa (Vividred Operation, Flowers of Evil, Street Fighter 4) composing the music.
This new anime will be split into two seasons. The first season will start airing on October 4, 2014, with the second season starting in April 2015.
UFOtable has released a 3 minute long trailer for this new adaption, which one can watch here.
For those who do not have any knowledge of the Fate universe, I heavily recommend giving Fate/Zero a watch. It may be a prequel, but it does a great job of explaining the world and its mechanics, as well as being an excellent show. Fate/Zero is also available for streaming on Netflix in North America right now.
