  • Looked really good. Can’t wait to re-watch this.

      That’s not how I thought that sentence would end so you earned a upvote.

      • jchill

        howd you think it would end?

        • Nightmesh

          Not with someone actually wanting and willing to wait for the dub.

          • Tienron

            love the dubs!!!

        • 0nsen

          On BD.

  • Yamaneko22

    Will it cover Saber’s path again like original anime or maybe Sakura’s this time?

    • greeeed

      original route

      • bassgs435

        stop extending unconfirmed information , thanks

        • greeeed

          they already said that

          • bassgs435

            no, they didn’t. you just read mistranslated information if you believe it to be the case. Ufotable are doing an excellent job at keeping the path they will take a secret, and nothing has been confirmed in official sources about which route they will take

          • SupaPhly

            his dad works for nintendo and what he says is final.
            There’s also a secret pokemon called pikablu

    • Wondering_Zero

      As of right now no one knows what they’ll do. There are rumors going around that they’ll animate an original route, but there’s no concrete evidence to support it. All the recent previews have only shown the prologue chapter, so they’re doing a good job of not showing their hand too early.

      • Yamaneko22

        I see, thanks for info :) I hope it will be Sakura’s path. After Fate/Zero I find it hard to believe that they will leave Matou’s family story undeveloped like in original FSN anime. Also it;s the only path that doesn;t have an anime/ova yet and i want to see more of Sakura’s grandpa :D

    • 0nsen

      They probably do the harem route they polled viewers about in Carnival Phantasm. Everyone wants the harem route where everyone is happy.

  • MSJ

    Mah nigga. More Lancer always welcome!

  • OtakuSheppug

    Wait… did I see right? It said Realta Nua Sountrack…
    Does that mean they’re going to animate the Realta Nua extra ending of Fate Stay Night?
    I really hope so. My life would be complete if they did.

    • That’s all it says. It doesn’t even indicate if they’re straight up taking the 2012 Realta Nua soundtrack and applying it to the anime, which would be totally lazy if they did.

      • OtakuSheppug

        ;u; You ruin my hopes and dreams. I hope what you say doesn’t come true. I really want Realta Nua ending to be animated…

        • Glad I could be of service. :v

          This is still supposed to be an original route for the anime, so whether it has any relevance to the extra RN content is uncertain.

          • bassgs435

            there is no solid evidence proving they’re going to do an original route. just guesses. Ufotable are doing an excellent job at keeping their hand hidden. there is no indication of where are they going to take the plot

          • Good to hear…or not, I think. I honestly think an original route would be fine in a medium that already does multiple routes, especially if ufo already considered the story to take a similar tone to F/Z and adjust Shirou’s character.

    • Suicunesol

      Realta Nua music was probably a placeholder. There weren’t even sound effects for their weapons, so… actually I suspect that video was fan-made by Yusei-Jaden.

      So, no. I seriously doubt that the studio will recycle music from an old game for its brand-new production. Yuki Kajiura will probably reprise her role as soundtrack composer.

  • MrTyrant

    Looking good. I love Ufotable animation I just hope to see them adapting other visual novels in the future aside from Type Moons ones (Still want Mahoyo and Tsukihime)

    • DeAndre Atchison

      But tsukihime has an anime…..

      • Raze

        What? No…

        It doesn’t have anime adaptation…

        • DeAndre Atchison

          It may have been terribad, but there is one

          • Raze


            There isn’t one…

          • DyLaN

            Dat denial strength(*≧▽≦)ノシ))

          • Janrabbit

            It’s over 9000!

          • Exkaiser

            It’s not that it’s terribad as a show, it’s that it’s not much of an adaptation of Tsukihime.

    • Exkaiser

      I don’t think we’ll see a Tsukihime anime until after the remake comes out-

      So yeah, I don’t really think we’ll ever see it. I’m okay with that, honestly- Tsukihime in its default form is great, and I think the amateur nature suits it. Having the remake permanently in limbo is pretty amusing.

    • MSJ

      Hoping against all hope for possible other Type-Moon adaptations (Notes Girls Work DDD etc.) It”ll most likely be after Tsukihime remake, maybe by 2025…

      • MrTyrant

        Oh damn. DDD and Girl’s work what happened to them?

  • Dianatos

    Spoiler: Lancer dies.

    You Bastards!

    • Raze

      Kono hito de nashi!!!

    • greeeed

      we are talking about Lancer
      No matter what series he in -> he will always die
      So it’s only spoiler if he didn’t die

      • MrTyrant

        There is a servant who doesn’t die. That was surprising in one of the routes.

  • Makoto Yuki

    Absolute visual improvement from the original FSN! Can’t wait to watch this even if they just remake the route.

  • Sigfried Silverblade

    If we do not have the CG dragon, I’ll be happy enough.

    • J_Joestar

      Nah, this will be CG worms version.

  • OkamiKing

    Is it too much to ask for Lancer to not die and win? And maybe get his original master?

    • Elizabeth ‘Ely’ Moreno

      Yes, too much to ask. Nothing can counter the Lancer Curse.

      • DyLaN

        IIRC Karna kick that curse in its arse in F/Ap.

        • Elizabeth ‘Ely’ Moreno

          But Karna is Karna, and seeing what happened to the other team’s Lancer… yeah, only Karna can have a chance.

      • Missingkeys

        Karna from F/AP would like to have a word with you.

        He’s almost unkillable. Even weapons growing out of his head doesn’t do anything to him.

        • Aunna Terrell

          What about his fate in CCC?

          • Missingkeys

            That’s different. He got saddle with a worthless master that dragged his status down a LOT. Even Gil admits that Karna is a very high level opponent even by his standards.

            Also, unlike other Lancers, Karna could have survived Deletion, but he gave up his armor to save his master. So unlike Cu, his was a case of sacrificing oneselves for his master.

            Also Elizabeth a Lancer walked away from the war to become an Idol.

          • 07thCrow

            Actually, in CCC, Karna was in the special Launcher class. He seems to be a Lancer in everything else, though.

  • Bryan

    SOOO GOOD….. WTB blue ray collectors version…

  • I want it NOW!!!

  • This anime is going to be great!

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Can you define it as great if Sakura does not go batshit over onii-chan and sempai both choosing to ignore her?

      • No. I need my yandere Sakura lol

        • M’iau M’iaut

          She sooo defines the modern alpha b*itch. Sorry for saying it that that way :P.

          • No need to be sorry. It’s true lol =P

  • Brotato Chip

    Heavens feel? :o

    • Thatguy

      Who knows? It was in prologue and wasn’t explained properly in first 2 routes. There was mention in Unlimited Blade Works but that is all.

      I hope for all 3 routes. Because Fate/Stay Night deserves it

  • Land of Green Pasture

    now only if the bgm is by Kajiura…

  • kof172005

    I hope they come out with a new route or sakura route rather than the old original route. Remakes are sometimes boring as most original FSN watcher knows the story.

  • Arcueid Brunstud

    nice animation almost as detailed as the animation from garden of sinners(kara no kyokai) almost.

  • SupaPhly

    ok, I haven’t watched the original or haven’t seen or read any type-moon stuff. is it okay to just watch this?

    • Aunna Terrell

      I’m fairly certain it’s a-ok. It looks like Saber’s first appear before her master. (So think like end of ep1 or beginning of ep2 type of material.)

    • Go2hell66

      wow you are missing out on life…

  • John Smith

    Those fight scenes look jawdropping

  • Theob Vious Choice

    It’s nice that they’re remaking it.
    The first Fate Stay/Night anime was kind of shitty, especially when compared to the Fate/Zero prequels which were quite excellent. The only thing I can say for the original is that it had a downright beautiful first opening theme.

  • Janrabbit

    is there like… a reason for this remake? I mean don’t get me wrong, it looks fookin sweet but… I thought that about it the first time I watched it too :S

    • Go2hell66

      yea the 1st one looked like crap and the story was a mess

      • Janrabbit

        the anime itself was pretty crisp from what I can remember… other than the CGI bits.. which always looks odd.

        • Erik Järnberg

          This one will adapt a better route of the VN, for one. Maybe you know that now though.
