By Ishaan . January 24, 2013 . 10:00am

Marvelous AQL have released the opening video to Fate/Extra CCC, the second Fate game for PSP developed in collaboration between Type-Moon and Imageepoch. The anime intro has been produced by anime studio, Shaft, recognized for their work on series like Bakemonogatari and more:



Fate/Extra CCC will be released in Japan for the PSP on March 28th. The game features a new storyline, along with new characters like Jinako, as well as returning ones such as Saber and Caster from the previous game. Other characters like Kotomine Kirei—who is a store clerk now—have new roles.

    this needs an anime

    • Sergio Briceño

      I’d be happy with a short hentai adaptation.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        ………..It happened already

        • Sergio Briceño


    • As long as the one who did the adaptation don’t screw it up, why not?

      So many butthurt downvote here….

    Some1 plz make a gag similar to this XD

    Surreal Imagery check. Head-tilt check. Fanservice scene check. Ppl doing weird pose check. Yup its fill with Shinbo & SHAFT.

    I wonder is the biology-esque imagery means anything or its just Shinbo playing us around? Also wht BB said??

    PS In several scene Sakura (?) suddenly looks like Hitagi lol. And why no Karna/Jinako/Lancer-chan?

    EDIT Also plz tell me if there something wrong with my post… Don’t just give me a thumbdown as I don’t know why are you dissatisfied with my comment…. I like the old DISQUS ;A:

  • Rudy Soto

    I was incredibly indifferent to this. I was expecting more than just some pretty colors, and something more in the lines of the Fate/Zero and F/SN Vita openings. I really wish Ufotable covered this .__.

    And there seems to be a severe lack of the Male MC. As a Male MC player, this really bums me out.

    • I can agree (when it comes to the Male MC), however, I suppose it’s a good thing for those who were bummed by the lack of Female MC in P4G… Maybe….

      • Rudy Soto

        Well, I wouldn’t know about that, considering the difference between the two is that there was never a female option in Persona 4, while the Male MC was present from the beginning in Extra.

        • Yes, that’s true. However, due to P3P I know many people who were really upset about the lack of a Fem MC for P4G.

      • Calintz YT

        Because there aren’t tons of games with female MCs already?

        • Name any recent good games, including FemC’s.

          • Final Fantasy XIII– oh.

          • biskmater

            legend of heroes trails in the sky? not sure if it counts as recent but…

      “cccDNA is a special DNA structure that arises during the propagation of some viruses in the cell nucleus and may remain permanently there.” -Wikipedia

      The Moon Cell was most likely corrupted/disturbed by some external factor and failed as a result. Or maybe it’s because the inclusion of Gilgamesh as a servant is so awesome that the Moon Cell cannot contain its awesomeness.

      • Göran Isacson

        … Holy shit so there is actually some sensible reason behind all the blood vessels and neurons and DNA-charts.

        Namely that Gilgamesh is too awesome for hearts, minds and reproductive instincts to comprehend!

      • Tht explains the Sakura clones XD Moon cell tries to construct a perfect Sakura clone but failed so it cause the system to go havok :P

  • Enma_Kozato

    I like how the male protag doesn’t get any representation.

    • Richter

      Yeah I don’t like it either.

  • MrTyrant

    This game is just about Sakura…Sakura Wars!….oh wait..

    • TatsuyaKyo

      Lol, you got the wrong game. But then again, you will face three Sakura clones (and maybe countless more that the devs refused to reveal), so I guess it counts. :p

  • Lazulis

    Not the finest SHAFT has done. Pretty though.

  • J Knox

    You guys are right. It totally needed the male main character, running into the sunset like every real man does. Take some ques from American (or in other words good) games and add some brown and grey so its next-gen ready, and we’re off to the races.

    • Your sarcasm (I hope that’s it) is amusing! However, they could have included the Male MC somehow, much like the P3P opening included the Fem MC without any issues.

    • Calintz YT

      Nothing says smash hit like coffee brown and gray.

  • Guest

    Pretty, but a little too much fanservice? I like the visual style, but less T&A would have been nice.

    • GotoHell

      Expecting less T&A from Shaft is like expecting a dog to not bark.

    • fds_nextdart

      Even though I expect this game to have a story as excellent as the first one (or better) just by looking at the different Sakuras and some other details (ie: Saber’s new outfit that generously puts her ass crack on display), you can tell this game will be heavy on Fan Service~.

  • Love the art style, colors and the music. However, I was disappointed by the lack of the male MC (though seeing Caster was great… oh how I love her). The fanservice was amusing, but unnecessary for the overall video. A much better opening than P4 Golden’s though! I loved it!

  • Guest

    Now that not all the bosses are going to be servants I would like to see MC using his/her hax hax abilities to go all UBW´s Shirou on some bosses during some event scenes

  • >Saber falling upside down

    >Archer falling upside down

    >Caster falling upside down


    • The GODDAMN Gilgamesh.

    • Xalsunwolf

      FUCK gravity.
      Edit: Actually, now that think of it, I believe that this the consensuses of the everyone in the opening PERIOD.

  • Really weak, may be because I’m biased towards Shaft and not really fond of them, but this is just lame. Colors are vibrant and very pretty, but that’s about it. The video told me about nothing and then it also lacked the male MC, wtf?

    • biskmater

      Well, it did tell me this game will be perfectly surreal, and perfectly depraved, the lack of male MC, did bother me slightly, though.

  • Mavalex

    Gil still not giving a damn about how gravity works. Love it

  • LynxAmali

    EXTRA TV series by SHAFT when?

    I really, really hope there’s another Rani route in this one. I really liked her in the first game and I’d be interested to see where they went with it in CCC.

    • Anything but DEEN……

      I just hope tht the alternate route (if there one) is less copy pasted this time around…..

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Not bad

  • Sam Park

    I somehow have a feeling that Sakura is related to Rin but not as sisters but something else (Like Mother or Aunt)

  • ChiffonCake

    …yeah, that’s Shaft alright.

    I’m personally not too thrilled for this, considering some rather questionable design choices that were carried over from the first EXTRA, but it’s Fate so oh what the hell. Also PLAYABLE GILGAMESH

    As for the lack of male MC in this OP, I always play as the female character when the option is there, so I don’t really care, but yeah it’d be nice were they had done something like P3P’s into, which is pretty impartial in this regard.

  • Come on guys, male MC was chosen for both the manga and the sound drama series (I think) so let MC-chan have her moment!

    But yes, good ol’ SHAFT head tilt. Never fails to amuse me

    • 07thCrow

      Yeah and Male!MC even has a name now (manga only, I think): Hakuno Kishinami. Male!MC was used a lot for Fate/EXTRA’s promotional work, so I agree; Fem!MC should get a little bit of that spotlight too! I was kinda bummed they didn’t include just a little bit of Male!MC (as someone who played both), but it’s not a big deal. Kind of a cheesy fanservice OP but amusing. :)

      • MrTyrant

        A name given in a manga isn’t something to be proud. I think is better with just the game and the player chosing a name of the character.

    • Raltrios

      Where might one find this manga? Or is it just that short, one-chapter thing I saw a while back?

      • 07thCrow

        I read online that there’s (I believe) 2 volumes out now, but I haven’t read it or seen any scans (translated or raw).

        • Raltrios


  • lol no male mc at all in the op… Wth?? Poor guy…

    • Because Japanese prefer FeMC?

      • TatsuyaKyo

        I kinda doubt that.

        • I read somewhere tht the FeMC have more fanart than MaleMC. Tht or Shinbo prefers FeMC.

          • TatsuyaKyo

            Is that so… somehow, it makes me kinda sad :(

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ………….oppai’s then GILGAMESH

  • Visa Vang

    Sakura FTW!!

  • TatsuyaKyo

    Would have preferred Ufotable work on the animation, but Shaft did a good work, so I guess it’s fine.

    Random thoughts:

    >No male MC T_T
    >Everyone is faaaaalling. And Gil is like; “Ha! The King is the only one allowed to fall feet-first!”
    >Woah, did I just see Passion Lip blush? Getting conscious of her absurdly huge talonsmelons perhaps?
    >Meltlilith taking pride in her status symbol (a flatchest). Which reminds me, a Sakura clone couldn’t be flat-chested. An error during her programming maybe?
    >BB… please stop flashing your p-pantsu around (stand down, boner).
    >So how is DNA related to all of this?

    • Wait Passion Lip is in there? Where o_O All I see is Sakura, Meltlilith and BB….

      Well Nasu did say Gil is the hax mode when he test played him…. (He toned it down though)

      cccDNA or something like tht. Or maybe its just a reference to the “diving into Rin mind to reveal her secret” thing.

      • TatsuyaKyo

        Passion Lip appears exactly before Meltlilith does, but only briefly (less than one second), so it’s understandable that you would miss her, lol.

        Never heard of cccDNA before, but I guess it makes sense in context.

        I would have liked to play hax Gil, but oh well. Though, I hope that the devs have implemented a special requirement that unlocks Hax Mode Gilgamesh. :p

        • I think Gil will stll be the easy mode lol. But the developers suggest Gil is to be played after completing the game for the 1st round cuz Gil actually figure out the truth of the world sooner so he will drop things tht make you go: “WTF is he sayin”.

          Also repeated watching also reveal tht Karna and Lancer-chan also have the same problem with PL…..

          • TatsuyaKyo

            Huh, nothing is hidden from the King of Heroes, it would seem. It makes all the more curious as to what he would say.

            I wonder about Lancer and Karna’s “problem” that you speak of (though I can probably see it already, lol).

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Ok i get that ufotable is good and all but lets chill with asking them to do everything lol

  • 07thCrow

    Looks like Gil be atrollin’. Nobody tells the King of Heroes how to fall! XD

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Female MC taking the spotlight is probably the best thing of this whole OP movie.^_^

  • SHAFT always has and will be one of my favorite studios. I hope Fate/Extra CCC gets localized soon =^_^=

  • Raltrios

    The song is quite lovely, and the video itself is one of the most
    colorful openings I’ve ever seen. The animation quality is superb, and
    the expressions on the characters are very much alive.
    It’s chock full of intriguing imagery as well. Nerves, molecules, bones, the
    double-helix of DNA, geometric shapes that likely refer to the digital
    setting, and (of course) a plethora of Sakura petals, branches, and
    trees referencing the importance of Sakura’s character. It’s all quite
    visually stunning, while also remaining very relevant to the game

    But no male MC.
    The FeMC appears to have become the canon lead, as she’s the only one of
    the two possible avatars to make an appearance. All four playable
    Servants are present in equal quantities, though.

    A very compelling and well-crafted piece of work. The music is very easy on the ears, and the imagery speaks volumes. I can most definitely be satisfied with this opening.


  • Syn

    The costume design at 0:45, thats some hardcore fanservice right there

  • XiaomuArisu

    So as I pray….
    Unlimited Fanservice Works

  • AlyOssan

    Man…I am all for some good fanservice, but I cannot get over how ridiculously stupid Passion Lip’s design is.

  • Now we know, the opening will be different, depending which of the protagnists you will chose!
