Raised by a mysterious sorcerer after the horrific death of his parents, Shiro Emiya has only just begun to help others using the small tidbits of magic that he’s learned. However, when he’s suddenly caught in a battle between two more powerful Magus, Shiro finds himself performing a spell above his expected ability, summoning the beautiful spirit warrior Saber to protect him! But safety is only momentary as Shiro and Saber now find themselves thrust into in a secret world of dark magic and deadly challenges: a no-holds barred duel to the death known as the Holy Grail War! At stake: a prize of unimaginable power. But can the inexperienced Shiro and Saber survive long enough to even enter the contest? First they’ll have to withstand waves of treachery and assassination, even as Shiro scrambles to learn everything he’ll need to know to stay alive as seven teams of Magus and Spirit Servants face off in mortal combat!
Ah the beauty. Ah the genius. That is what Fate Stay/Night is and that is what is going to be what Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. I just can’t believe it. Right after I finish Fate Stay/Night, Unlimited Blade Works come right out!
This is going to be the most hyped anime of this season. Everyone who’s anyone is going to be on this the second it comes out.
Just so you know if you watched the original Fate Stay/Night, this is a completely different thing from it. Saber is not the main heroine, it’s Rin! No complaints
Now it was confirmed that a hefty amount of the main casts from both the original Fate Stay/Night and Fate/Zero would return. So here we go!
Returning as the awesome Servant, Saber, is Ayako Kawasumi! I legit love her even before watching the original Fate Stay/Night. She’s been in Rave Master(Lead), Fairy Tail, Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, and Queen’s Blade(Lead). She’s done Saber in at least ten different versions of Fate Stay Night so she’s got this down!
Coming back as epic as the Servant, Archer, is Junichi Suwabe. He’s too epic as Archer but that’s not the only thing he’s got on his belt. He’s been in Akuma no Riddle(Eisuke Inukai), Fairy Tail(Freed Justine), the entire Compilation of Final Fantasy VII(Tseng), Fullmetal Alchemist(Greed), Prince of Tennis/New Prince of Tennis(Keigo Atobe), and Sekirei: Pure Engagement(Izumi Higa). Wow that’s a lot and that’s just the stuff I know him from.
Keeping his spot as the lead is Noriaki Sugiyama. Now if you watch the Japanese version of Naruto then you’ll know him as Sasuke Uchiha or watch Bleach and know him as Uryuu Ishida. Now for the rest. He’s been in Kimi no Iru Machi(Ichihara), and Black Butler(William Spears). Wow I need to watch more of him. Too little of a list.
Being the premiere Tsundere of the show once more is Kana Ueda. She’s been in Freezing(Attia Simmons), Saki(Saki Miyanaga), and Sekirei(Yomi). I loved her in the original. I can’t wait to see if she tops herself here.
Finally the last one I know is Noriko Shitaya returning as the kind and loving Sakura Matou but things are going to get way harder for Sakura this time around. Unlimited Blade Works isn’t no punk! She’s been in Bleach(Ururu Tsumugiya), Maken Ki and Maken Ki Two(Haruko Amaya), Naruto and Naruto Shippuden(Moegi), and Pokemon(Candice and Viola). Just wait until Heaven’s Feel Sakura! Hahaha oh the darkness!
You seriously can’t put together a better cast if you tried! I’m going to love this!
This isn’t going to be like Shirobako.
One, it’s a guaranteed success with all the love that Fate Stay/Night has. Fate Stay Night is still one of the most popular visual novels out there and one of the most famous.
Two, this is going to be a two cour series. Now I just learned this myself. Apparently seasons can be called cours and if a anime skips a season and returns the next one it’s called two cour series. Basically it’s an anime that goes for a season, skips the next one, and returns the next one. I wish I could give you an example but typically anime are one and done or they run for a half year, a year, or they’re on every week.
Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works will run the entire Autumn 2014 Season, skip the Winter 2015 Season, and return in Spring 2015 Season.
Knowing anime studios they’ll just leave us on a cliffhanger and make us wait until the next half of the season. Those bastards…
So the hype train is gassing up right now and getting ready to leave for Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works. Will you be on it or just sit back at the station?
Until the hype even more real,
