Fate/Stay Night (2014)


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.

*sobs fervently on your shoulder at the mention of Dreams of Waking Man*

I haven’t even finished the whole series, I had to download them to my Kindle so that I could read them in a warm place with my cat close at hand, because they’re amazing and they make me want to cry about one hundred percent of the time.

…Although I’ve made fun of it pretty regularly, Fate/Extra Archer (Read the one in green whose name I won’t disclose because spoilers) actually was well written and had a good story.

As in… A really neat story arc. I liked he and his Master. They played off one another really well. And they were original to the game, unlike Shinji who died sniveling on the ground because he does that no matter what parallel timeline he is in, apparently.

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works (2014)

An adaption of Kinoku Nasu’s famous visual novel, Fate/Stay Night follows Shirou Emiya as he’s thrust into a war between Magi over the Holy Grail, which will grant a single wish to the victor of the war.

Fate/Stay Night is part of the incredibly popular Fate franchise which includes 2011/12’s prequel anime Fate/Zero.

Being adapted by Ufotable (Garden of Sinners), who were also responsible for Fate/Zero's adaption, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works adapts the 2nd route of the original visual novel.

Fans of the source material can be rest assured that this adaption won’t end up being incredibly rushed and poorly done like the 2010 movie. Ufotable is being careful and precise in making sure that all of the content from the visual novel is in this adaption.

The character designs are great, background art breathtaking, and the directing superb; especially during the fight scenes.

If you haven’t gotten into the Fate franchise yet you can either read the original visual novel, or watch Fate/Zero, as the studio is setting this adaption up to work as a sequel to Zero in both how it’s being directed as well as the world building aspect of the series.
