As many streaming sites are currently offering premium services, it was only a matter of time until the gang at Daisuki would add this feature to their Website. Lo and behold, this day has arrived, and the beta for the premium membership st...

God Eater Resurrection photo

Behold your next look at God Eater Resurrection

God Eater might be the hot new anime this season, but in the world of gaming, God Eater 2 is already a couple of years old. What Bandai Namco has on its hands is a problem of synergy. After all, folks turned on to the franchise b...

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 ...

The next Tales of game looks beary interesting

As we're waiting for Tales of Zestiria's Western release to hit stores, the folks at Bandai Namco have announced the next Tales of game at the Tales of Festival in Yokohama. From the looks of it, Tales of Berseria might have the bear essent...

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...

God Eater photo

Your first look at Ufotable's God Eater anime

I've mentioned this before, but of the many games that tried to steal Monster Hunter's fire, I liked God Eater the most. While mechanically it was often just "diet" Monster Hunter, its approach to storytelling and anime-style premise ...

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...

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...

New Fate/Stay Night trailer features Taiga's lesson

Aniplex Japan has posted a new trailer for the remake of Fate/Stay night by animation studio ufotable. It's not really different from the first Fate/Stay night trailer shown from Anime Japan earlier this year, but it's worth a look since t...

Fate/Stay Night photo

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...

God Eater 2 OP photo

God Eater 2 opening anime is cool as ice

Animation studio Ufotable doesn't exactly handle a whole lot of projects at once, but they put a ton of care and effort into the stuff they do work on. Case in point: God Eater 2's beautiful anime opening up top. For those of you who aren'...

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...

Huzzah! Fate/Zero gets a NA BD/DVD release with the dub

I'm in love with Ufotable's Fate/Zero anime adaptation.  On a technical level, it's a beautiful looking show with fantastic direction, a great soundtrack, and amazing cinematography. In fact, I loved it so much that I bought both Japan...

GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack! doesn't need any extra wasabi

The television and theatres are overrun with zombie movies nowadays. You just can't avoid 'em. Cities infested with the evil walking dead. How about a film with some evil walking fish? You might not look at your sushi the same after you ch...


Wait, what? Neon Alley to summon Fate/Zero's English dub

I didn't think that I would live to see Fate/Zero and English dub in the same sentence, since many of us assumed that Aniplex's release of Fate/Zero's import set would nullify the possibility of seeing a release with a dub. With ...

Friday Night Fights: Homura vs Kiritsugu

*ding, ding, ding* It's over! Red XIII is taking quite a blow from Repede's swift knife attacks -- very impressive, Repede. And right as Repede readies one of his Artes, Red XIII attacks with Cosmo Memory. Luckily, Repede isn't yo...

Unboxing! the Garden of sinners

Somehow the 2007 series of movies, the Garden of sinners totally escaped my radar. The story is made up of seven different ful length films, each brought to us by a renowned director. The story revolves around the mysterious...


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 ...


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...


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

As we reported a few days back, Fate/stay night[Realta Nua] will be hitting Japanese Vita's this fall. At the time, we had little in the way of confirmed details, but now we have a main visual image, some screenshots and some definitive det...


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

A recent Newtype leak has revealed that the popular Type Moon visual novel, Fate/stay night, will be hitting Japanese Vita's this year on November 29. As far as I can tell, this is the first time that the game has been brought to a handheld...


New season of Fate/Zero gets a theater premiere

The second half of Fate/Zero is closing in, ladies and gentlemen. As the man who covered it in 2011 and then purchased the hilariously expensive BD box set, I think it's pretty clear that I'm excited for the conclusion. Looks like Ufotable ...


Ufotable releases full length trailers of upcoming OVAs

Ufotable Animation Studios has just released a brand new batch of upcoming feature trailers. Fresh out of the oven, we have gotten our hands on three extended previews for the OVA adaptions of Minori Scramble, Yuri Seijin Naoko-san, an...


First Impressions: Fate/Zero

Here we go folks. The first episode of the highly anticipated Fate/Zero has come and gone. With such big names attached the project (Ufotable, Yuki Kajiura), I’d say expectations are running pretty high. As a bit of a disclaimer, I mu...


Finally, here's that Fate/Zero trailer we talked about

Really now, Japan. Making awesome trailers watchable only for a select few people in some auditorium somewhere isn't the best way to build awareness of your awesomeness. Unless you were charging admission, and even then you'd just raise the...


Ufotable delivers more Fate/Zero anime service

Prep your salivary glands, Type-MOONinites, because it's time to drool. The company behind Saber and her dashing black suit released a new trailer for the upcoming Ufotable-animated TV series based on Fate/Zero, due in October. Unfortunatel...


Watch Gods Eater Burst's anime prequel, now subtitled!

D3's promoting Gods Eater Burst hard, and one of its selling points is its more...I guess the word is its slightly edgier anime style. I mean, Monster Hunter is plenty Japanese, but more in a goofy Capcom way. That doesn't always fly with t...


Type-Moon fans rejoice (again): Girl's Work getting anime

Type-Mooninites! You people are the the people of the week, at least when it comes to great new announcements!Once again, Ufotable and the people behind them really long, wordy visual novels are getting together to adapt Girl's Work, anothe...
