Impressions: Fate/Grand Order: First Order

I have to admit that I was initially rather disappointed to learn that Fate/Grand Order: First Order was being planned as a one-off TV special, rather than a full-season TV series, as the rumors had originally stated. After all, i...

Here, let Gandalf lend some class to Unlimited Blade Works

There are no words for this, besides "HOLY SHIT SIR IAN MCKELLEN JUST READ THE UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS INCANTATION". It's even funnier when you see the 77-year-old, award-winning British actor pause ever so slightly when he encounters the ba...

Watch Man at Arms bring Saber's Excalibur to life

Ever since Man at Arms switched to a new group, I started to miss the old team's style, since their weapons were more accurate than the current gang. Nonetheless, the main thing that both blacksmiths have in common is that they use their s...

Get your Fate/stay night gear on

No hardcore Fate/stay night fan would hit the town without a pair of officially licensed sneaker from UBIQ. The shoe maker is coming out with two sets of kicks, inspired by both Saber and Archer. I can't say that I'm a fan of the design, or...

Final Impressions: Unlimited Blade Works

And so the hero's journey begins. That's actually the weird thing here, as in these kinds of stories, most heroes are "born" at the beginning of the tale. A Link To The Past's hero is born when a green-clad youth leaves his house on a ...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episode 22

This one's likely to be a short recap as Unlimited Blade Works downshifts, in preparation for the final two episodes. Instead, I invite viewers whose main experience with the Fate franchise is via Fate/Zero to consider the fo...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 20-21

And here we are: The fight that defines the whole of Unlimited Blade Works: The final battle between Shirou Emiya...and Shirou Emiya, or rather, Shirou Emiya's future self, as Archer, the embittered hero. It goes about as well as one might ...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episode 19

Ufotable's take on Unlimited Blade Works may be in many ways the Fate/stay night adaptation fans always wanted, but it's not without its sticking points. Besides the usual caveats that can be attached to a property as self-se...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 16-18

The last time we checked in with Unlimited Blade Works, we'd seen the lengths Ufotable was willing to go to give the passing of Ilya and Berserker the gravitas that moment deserves. It worked, for the most part, though the part of me t...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episode 15

And so ends one of the sadder stories (and backstories) in Fate/stay night's large (some might say overly large) collection of sad backstories. Of course, having a sad backstory is par for the course in a Type-MOON-based fiction, so that's ...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 13-14

When last we checked in with Unlimited Blade Works, ufotable's big, fabulously expensive-looking adaptation of Fate/stay night's most beloved story arc left our heroes in the lurch. Though an adorable date opened episode twelve, the last in...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 9-10

Perhaps I was being premature when I declared that Unlimited Blade Works had finally gotten over its tendency to swing between "boring" episodes and action-packed showcases, because the last two weeks have seen a return to that old see...

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episode 8

After harping on and on about Unlimited Blade Works "odd-numbered episode"-based sense of pacing, it seems that ufotable have seen fit to show me the boot, by implanting some of the tastiest sequences yet in this week's installment, wh...

Unlimited Blade Works' opening gets an ideal 8-bit remix

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works has been a great adaptation to the original visual novel game's second route so far, and Studio Megaane is ready to make people rejoice with his next move. In other words, the show's opening them...

Fate: UBW photo

Annotated Anime: Unlimited Blade Works episodes 2-3

The more I watch of Unlimited Blade Works, the more I'm convinced that everyone would've been better off if each episode were an hour long rather than the standard length. It'd work, even if the show became bi-weekly because of it.  If...

First Impressions: Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works

These day it's hard to imagine an active otaku who isn't at least passingly familiar with Fate/stay night, Type-MOON's juggernaut of a visual novel series.  I'm sure those sorts of folks exist, though, and the duty falls to Ufotab...

Ufotable's take on Fate/stay night UBW looks hot

In what can only be described as a "oh wait, really?" kind of moment, Ufotable revealed this past Sunday that their upcoming new Fate/stay night TV series would be adapting the Unlimited Blade Works route of the video game. I can hear some...

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 flaws I still revis...

First Impressions: Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA

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 b...

More Fate/stay night anime, confirmed by ufotable

During the premiere of the new 3D Garden of Sinners: Fukan Fukei movie in Japan, a preview video confirming animation studio ufotable's next Fate universe project was screened. Various witnesses reported the PV sighting on twitter...

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 keep an eye for...

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya finally gets a trailer

A three minute preview for Silver Link's upcoming Fate/stay night spinoff anime, Fate/kaleid Liner Prisma Illya has hit the web, and it's full of cute things. This should surprise approximately nobody.  The original manga that this is...

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 stupid looking des...

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 into the universe ...

Friday Night Fights: Tenchi Muyo's Tenchi vs Saber

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, but I wish it ...

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 hell when it se...

This new Fate/stay night [Realta Nua] trailer is awesome

I can't wait for this November. As a Vita owner, not only do I have Atelier Totori Plus to look forward to, but the Fate/stay night [Realta Nua] port as well. The latter just got a new trailer and it's making the wait all the more difficult...

Otakon '12: Gen Urobuchi interview

Take a gander at Fate/Kaleid Liner's key visual

Ah, "key visual". I like that rather unique term the Japanese animation industry's cooked up. It's very straightforward one, practically screaming "Hey guys, we want you to think about this when you hear about us!!!". It's a form of marketi...

Fate/stay night[Realta Nua]'s main visual is pretty cool

Fate/stay night[Realta Nua] hitting the Vita on 11/29

Gilgamesh has a cool Fate/Zero chess set, and you can too

Of course, I'm reasonably sure the King of Heroes doesn't call his Fate/Zero-themed set a "Fate/Zero-themed chess set. He probably just calls it "My chess set". Just like he'd call everything else "mine", as per his "I own everything" ...

Uh oh! Season 2 of Fate/Zero to get a western BD release

I love Fate/Zero. I love it enough that I went out and purchased the BD set of the first season, albeit at a discounted price. As beautiful as the set is, I can't actually recommend it simply due to its outrageous price here in Japan and in...

Type Moon isn't done with Mahou Tsukai no Yoru just yet

I'm only a few hours into Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, Type Moon's latest visual novel for the PC, but it's been a fantastic ride thus far. The production values are above and beyond anything that TM has ever produced, and the whole game just feel...
