By Spencer . November 6, 2012 . 10:08pm


Shaft, the animation studio that worked on Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Bakemonogatari, is making an animated opening for Fate/Extra CCC.


Famitsu also introduces a few characters:

Karna voiced by Koji Yusa (Croix in Ar tonelico II)

Jineko voiced by Aoi Uki (Cyril in Sol Trigger)

Lancer (described as a "mysterious servant") voiced by Rumi Okubo  (Pisti in Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic)


Fate/Extra CCC is scheduled to come out on February 21.

    Ooooooh, that’s certainly cool news, really looking forward to the PVs for this. Hope this is on track this time though.

  • s07195

    I thought the uniforms for the main characters were redesigned?

    •  You can change it back to the old costume in the game.

    • It’s an extra costume for the main characters, like how the servants have another costume you can choose too.

  • epy

    Aksys, if you fight this war, you’ll have my axe.

  • Hoshi星

    Spencer, I think you meant Aoi Yuuki. I don’t know any seiyuu called Aoi Uki.

  • Karna voiced by Koji Yusa

    Is this the guy?? Wow, he managed to jump frm /Apocrypha to here… (Is it me or he reminds me of Fang frm Unchained Blades?)

    Aha! So Pink Hair is a Lancer! Who is Jineko?

    Tht room in the screenshot somehow looks like a love hotel for me lol….

    Can’t wait to see the OP!! I want to see how SHAFT it can go lol ^.^

  • I’ll be all over this if Aksys brings it to UMD like the first one :)

  • Sometimes, when I read the titles of these articles, I came to realise apparently “Madoka Magica” has more view power compared to “Shaft”, apparent in this article with the words “from Madoka Magica studio” instead of “from Shaft”.
    On topic, I’m wondering if the gameplay be seemingly as repetative as the first one.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Now, we only need to prepare our muney for Akyss lol.^_^

  • XiaomuArisu

    I waited for the first,will wait for this….one day!

  • Christopher Nunes

    Knew that devil-tail Girl was a Lancer Class Servant! Though I’m really curious what the animated opening movie looks like… the suspense is killing me!

    I’m importing this game and hopefully get the White Figma edition, I really want to get that version!

  • It’s nice that Fate/Extra CCC is going along well. Shaft creating the animated scenes is probably the worst news I wanted to hear though. Shaft is one of the worst studios out there and are know to use cheap methods to lower their costs. Ever heard of the infamous phrase “this series just got Shafted”? Yeah…

    • Luna Kazemaru

       I’ll tell DEEN you want them to do it.

      • You do that dear sir! That would only be appropriate, considering Studio Deen was responsible for the Fate/Stay Night anime. If you happen to meet any of their staff on the street please kindly persuade them to lend us a hand. Creating cut scenes for a Fate game will probably only take a day or two of their time anyway.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          Yeah and we can enjoy the bad animation HEY lets give them the story to this game while we are at it -_-

    • You haven’t seen their BD release?? When given time SHAFT can pull something awesome out. The reason they couldn’t show the OP PV is they are still working on it acc to a article I read.

    • XiaomuArisu

       Lets agree that we disagree.
      I like shaft especially Bakemonogatari.Sure they do some weird stuff but its better then the filling from One piece,naruto etc.
      One Piece=3 minutes long reaction faces
      Naruto=Every 2 minutes flashback
      Bakemonogatari=Coolest looking dialogs ever!

      •  I think each studio has it’s good and bad points. Shaft animated Revolutionary Girl Utena which, while good on story and characters, was as repetitive as Naruto and Once Piece are if not more. Bakemonogatari has a nice story and I watched the entire series but personaly got very annoyed at the blank scenes Shaft left and the very conservative use of animation. Shaft isn’t very good at animating their shows. What they lack in animation they provide in artistic inovation. There’s another show from Shaft called Ef – A Tale of Memories. This show happens to be one of my top 5 series and it was made by Shaft. So I hope you’ll understand where I’m coming when I say this but Shaft isn’t good at making short videos with nonestop action in them. Their speciality is “talkative anime”.

    • >Ever heard of the infamous phrase “this series just got Shafted”?

      Last time I heard, this was a GOOD thing. Did you remember the hype for Madoka Magica when it was first announced? “An all new magical girl series by Shaft”. That alone was already cause to pay attention. This was before we found out of Urobuchi’s and Kajiura’s involvements.

      A 20 second action scene in Bakemonogatari is vastly well more animated than 200 episodes of any of the Big 3.

      •  You have a short memory my friend. Did you forget about the infamous blank scenes during Bakemonogatari that Shaft just chose not to draw? How about the episodes in which the characters sit on a bench and just talk for an entire freaking episode. A 20 second acion scene is all the action you’ll be seeing in a single episode of that series and I know that from experience. Regardless of how good the story might have been you can’t seriously be thinking Bakemonogatari had good animation, because it had very little animation.

    Comment on the article: Madoka Magica doesn’t really belong in the title…it’s not that relevant and hardly a major point of the article, now is it? Seems like an attempt to get hits, but well, what do I know?

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Shaft is being praised for Makoda right now and it was their latest hit madoka does have relevant reason in being in the title since shaft is the studio behind it. This is not kotaku hun we don’t need title spin around here nor is this site starving for hits.

    • When trying to assess a studio’s capabilities, it’s quite common (and reasonable) to look at their latest and/or best works (or failing that, popular ones) – which is what Madoka Magica is to Shaft. I don’t understand where you drew the “site hit” conclusion from.

      • Tianyu Wei

         Shaft got their name out there from Bakemonogatari… not Madoka…
        Bakemonogatari would of been more fitting to describe the studio’s
        capability… and their lack of (getting “shaft’d” out some scenes/etc)

        • Madoka is also quite obviously popular enough to mention as a reference. This isn’t an “either-or” situation, you know.

        • …I’m guessing Zetsubou Sensei was a cult hit then?

        • Di_Elle

          Shaft did a lot of recognized stuff before Bakemonogatari…

  •  The new master’s name is Jinako Karagiri. Here’s the famitsu article, in case anyone wants to take a look http://www.famitsu.com/news/201211/08023982.html

    • Thk dude. I’m curious abt it too.

      She sure looks like Moeka Kiryuu….. 

      Hmm…. w/out doubt tht Karna frm Apocrypha with some tweaks. 

    • Christopher Nunes

      This is news to me… so did this new master Jinako Karagiri just get announced or was announced a few weeks back? Also another Servant, huh? Looks like that dude from the Apocrypha project of Type-Moon… hmm, I wonder if Type-Moon will expand on the Fate/Extra world and include the other Apocrypha Servants into the game.

      That would be something, wouldn’t it? ^_^

  • pothier.adrien

    Karna ? THE Karna ?!


    • Z3



        Btw care to plotdump on wht does Karna hv to do w/h nukes??

  • Sorry for the double post, but I found this:

    Let see whether r u as cool as Daru, Ms Jinako. (Also plz don’t h**k the game lol)

  • natchu96

    Karna . . . the one goldie everyone think’s will give the resident Goldie Gil an interesting fight.


  • Karna. A Lancer voiced by a guy who played another Lancer.


    • LynxAmali

       inb4 Rank E luck.

  • Two-color CGI models and neck-tilts everywhere.


    I actually can’t wait to see how they handle this.

  • I want Siegfried! Give me Siegfried!! Dx
    Jineko is pretty cute, but gotta kick her butt with Gil~

  • Neppygear

    shaft yes good more shaft in everything good yes very good shaft yes good

  • Christopher Nunes

    I forgot to ask… what’s Saber saying in that screenshot? I can’t translate Japanese text just well enough yet.

    •  Here’s the translation:
      “I see. You truly are my Master. Even though you lost your memories you still act like yourself.” (Note that this is my translation. I could have probably translated the whole “act like yourself” better if I actually knew the context).

      • Kibbitz

        I read the latter as “Your conduct is most appropriate even having lost your memories.” 

        • Christopher Nunes

          Thanks for that additional bit of translation.

          Hopefully we’ll see this game stateside!

      • Christopher Nunes

        Thanks! That helps a lot! ^_^

  • pothier.adrien
