So if anybody is like me and is a little overwhelmed with all the new fate announcements, I’m going to try and break it down.
First off, we have Fate/Grand Order:
This actually already came out (12/31/2016) but figured it’s basically the start of the new year. This is a television anime special one off thats 1hr and 14min by Studio Lay-duce.
The synopsis of this series basically goes: After the disappearance of a future timeline confirms the end of humanity, the organization, Chaldea, orders a “Grand Order” (heh, get it?) to find and destroy what will apparently end the human race as we know it.
Next we have Fate Stay Night Movie: Heaven’s Feel (Part 1):
This is the first part of a three part series about one of the three routes of Fate Stay Night. (I know, its a lot) If you haven’t seen either Fate Zero for Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blades Work, PLEASE DO!! The movie will be made by Ufotable but no release date has been announced yet.
The synopsis for this movie is: Shirou Emiya enters the world of magus after accidentally joining the Holy Grail War. What happens afterwards is just pain and suffering.
After that there is Fate/Extra:
This is going to be an anime series produced by Shaft. No information about release date or how many episodes have been announced yet.
This show also has the Holy Grail War although to my understanding its virtual? Also the big twist is that the main character has no idea what’s going on or how he got there and is thus chucked into war. (Good luck bro)
Another anime series is Fate/Apocrypha:
Again, no news has been announced for this series. The studio will be A-1 Pictures.
This series is parallel to Fate Stay Night, so happening at the same time but different universe. Instead of every man for themselves, this Holy Grail War is between two factions, Yggdmillennia and the Mage’s Association.
Lastly, there is Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya Movie:
There is no information whatsoever about this LOL so it might not even be for 2017…
This movie takes place after 4 anime seasons. This is an alternate spin off of Fate Stay Night that has… magical girls??? That’s really all I seemed to get out of it but Illya is alive and happy and that’s really all that matters.
More news to come in the February 2017 issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Newtype magazine, which has a really cute cover of Saber :3
