Hey everyone. It’s Deven and I’m coming at you with some Fate news.
This 2015 is going to be a very good year for the Fate series. Why you say? Well I’m going to tell you!
Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works will be continuing with its second cour this April. Now you’ve seen the last episode with that awesome end with LiSA singing This Illusion and Shiro losing Saber. Too badass an ending!
But if you think that Unlimited Blade Works is going to be going downhill from here on out, you’ll be completely wrong! There will be betrayals, love, epic battles, clashes of ideals and the reveal of Archer’s identity.
Next up coming around roughly Spring 2015 is Fate/Grand Order. Now this is going to be an Android/iOS RPG game. We don’t have very much information but we do have a list of the Servants and with Arturia Pendragon(Saber), Jeanne D’Arc(Ruler), Shielder, Archer, and Lancer. How can it not be great!
Then during the Summer 2015 will be the super cutesy but still awesome Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya will have the second part of its second season. Now despite me being a very deep Fate fan, I didn’t even think that Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya was good. I thought it was just well a cutesy little thing with no connection to the original. However then I saw this:
How could I not want to look at the entire thing after seeing that! I’m still looking at the first season but it looks like it has a good combination of action and cute magical girl stuff. And that’s always good!
Finally with an unknown release date but it’s sure to come out next year Ufotable’s Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel Movie.
Now I know what some of you are thinking. You’ve still got the bad taste of the Studio Deen Unlimited Blade Works Movie. Those idiots tried to compress a Route nearly 20 hours long into 2 hours. You think that Ufotable is going to do the same with Heaven’s Feel.
You’ll be wrong. I’ve checked it out. Ufotable between 2007 to 2009 released Kara no Kyoukai. Now what did they do? Release one movie to cover three volume? Wrong! They made sure to do three things:
1. The Light Novel is written out of chronological order. Ufotable, like the folks that made the SAO anime, they put it in order.
2. Made sure to have the top class animation for the day and great voice actors. Granted it is like say their Fate/Zero or Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works work but the animation very fluid and does stand up to the test of time well. As for voice talent, you can see the relationship between the female lead and male lead. Why? Because Shiki and Mikiya are voiced by Maaya Sakamoto and Kenichi Suzumura who are married. You can’t get better chemistry than a married couple. Granted they got married in 2011 and the movies came out between 2007 and 2009.
3.Finally they made seven movies! Now that’s smart. Why stuff massive amounts into one movie when you can have seven movies and with no need to rush.
So we have evidence that Ufotable knows how to make a movie right.
It’s safe to say that Ufotable will be doing multiple Heaven’s Feel movies so they can give the Route a proper adaptation.
This is going to be the best year ever for the Fate Series. I can’t wait!
