Fate/Stay Night remake to air in fall 2014

I'm a freak. I admit it. Why am I a freak? Well, according to the Type-Moon fans in the audience it's because I actually really liked the original Fate/Stay Night series created years ago by Studio DEEN. Yes, despite its flaw...

First Impressions: Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA
by Elliot Gay

As much as I've enjoyed the Fate/Stay Night franchise, I have to admit that I've always felt that something was missing. Last year's Fate/Zero was a fabulous series filled with beautiful action, lovely animation, and a gripping story. Yet by the end of it, I couldn't help but think that it could still be better.

So how exactly do you improve on Type-Moon's hit franchise?

By turning it into a magical girl series. Dreams do come true folks.

And by dreams, I mean that I never once asked for a magical girl spinoff, nor have I ever wanted one out of the Fate franchise. Why does Fate/Kaleid Liner Prism Illya exist? Why was the original manga series popular enough to spawn an anime adaptation by Silver Link? Why am I stuck watching it?

Why am I being punished?

Despite my cautionary stance on this whole Fate going magical girl thing, I still decided to dive in and give Fate/Kaleid a chance.

I hope I don't regret this.

Sentai Filmworks licences Fate/Kaleid magical girl series

Earlier today, I watched the first episode of Fate/Stay Night spin-off, Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya. It's cute, a bit weird, and the faces seem kind of off. All told, I actually enjoyed it more than I was expecting to, so ...

Fate/Extra CCC gets another character introduction video

It's hard to believe that Fate/Extra CCC is finally hitting Japanese shelves in March. I'm still looking forward to seeing where this quasi-sequel goes, though I have to admit that the Sakura lookalikes have ridiculously stu...

Shaft's Fate/Extra CCC opening is very Shaft-like

Despite my feelings toward Imageepoch, I'm actually reasonably excited for their upcoming PSP game, Fate/Extra CCC. The first title was a solid dungeon crawl with a fantastic story, so I'm looking forward to jumping back int...

*ding, ding, ding*

It's over!

Poor Dragonar-1 Custom, he had the proper weapons to obliterate Lancelot Conquista, but not many folks on here got to experience his show. Lancelot Conquista wins! (5 > 2)

Two immense weapons of mass destruction are clashing tonight in the arena, and it has nothing to do with explosives. His Lighthawk Wings are feared by most, but his gang of women can be considered as blessing or curse. Ladies and gentlemen, let's give a round of applause to Tenchi Masaki from the Tenchi Muyo! OVA. Don't let her beauty fool you, because this charming lady wields the holy sword of a true king. Bow down and kneel before Saber, as she is ready to defend her royal honor. 

The superior wielder of power will be determined by your votes, knowledge, and persuasion, so let's make this clash a spectacle. And remember to add a +1 to the fighter that you vote for, since it will be easier to keep track of the score count. You have from today till Wednesday to cast your vote, so make sure that your choice goes up on time. 

*ding, ding, ding*

Unleash your blades! 

And while you are busy with supporting the true victor, let's take a look at Dragonar's opening in the section below, so that Dragonar-1 Custom's defeat won't be in vain.

These Fate/Zero cushions are manly as hell

There's no hiding that Fate/Zero filled me with all sorts of happy feelings. It's one of my favorite shows from the past five years, and I go to bed every night while caressing my BD sets.  Ok, that last part isn't true,...

Fate/EXTRA CCC's Gilgamesh is as arrogant as ever

I really dug Fate/EXTRA for the PSP. Despite its many issues, I found the story to be an engaging take on the Fate/Stay night mythos. I was pleased as punch to read that a sequel was in development, and then disappointed as ...
