Fate/Complete Material Volume 1 Out Now In North America

By Ishaan . May 27, 2014 . 3:30pm

Back in January, Udon Entertainment announced that they would publish Fate/Complete Material Volume 1: Art Material in North America. This is a book that contains concept material and illustrations from the original Fate/Stay Night game and is now available in stores.


Fate/Complete Material Volume 1: Art Material weighs in at 240 pages and costs $39.99 (although, you can find it for cheaper on Amazon). Udon have provided a 14-page preview of the book that you can check out further down.


Back when they announced the book, Udon said that they would release the other Fate/Complete Material books as well, provided that the first one sold well enough to justify it, and it looks like things are going well enough so far, since the publisher included the book in their bestseller list for May.

    i know it would be really pointless, but i still hope that they release fate/stay night in the west officially. heck we even have that shiny new re-release for the vita, but anyway ill buy this i’m a sucker for every thing type-moon.

    • I want to see the Vita port too. We gotten a lot of the rest of the franchise so this would complete the circle.

    • You know, for all of the VNs that have been taken a chance with on Steam, you’d figure this would be the ONE series of a select few that would have graced our shores by now.

      • lackofstyle

        yea, but i think the problem is timing, anyone who wanted to read it already have, and while i would buy the game in a heartbeat, i cant say that for anyone one else T_T

        • I think the problem is Type-Moon doesn’t care. :P

      I hope they don’t. They probably mess up the translation. They always do. Besides, we can get the thing from Japan and use the translation easily available online. (And the patch that uncensores all the sex scenes and the one that will add all the voices from Realta Nua.)

    I remember when I got to that scene in the VN where Ilya is straddling Shirou, “please, please tell me this isn’t going where it looks like it’s going. Dood she’s like, 12!”

    • lackofstyle

      iirc, she’s actually older than Shirou.

      • DrakeClawfang

        Well she looks 12. Same reason the Shirou and Saber sex was weird. Well, that and the awful writing of the sex.

        • lackofstyle

          ah someone else actually noticed that? Saber looks like a 14 year old when shes out of that armor. oh and ahh the writing, that was a good laugh lol.

          • DrakeClawfang

            Yeah. I’m like “okay, I get this scene is supposed to be kinda awkward and weird, but I’m not sure you’re getting it across the way you intended”.

        • Juan Andrés Valencia

          I’ve posted this hundreds of times but here’s a Tumblr made entirely out of sex scene quotes written by Nasu: http://whynasu.tumblr.com/ (NSFW)

          And yes, he may be able to create fantastic characters and scenarios but as soon as they have sex it all goes downhill. Thankfully there are All-Ages versions of Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night that have been translated.

          • Of course there’s a Tumblr for this.


          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            I’d complain but it’s easier to show that for people asking “WHY I SHOULDN’T PLAY THE VERSION WITH H-SCENES?”.

          • Guest

            Oh shit. That explains so much. I just finished GnK and I was wondering why the damned H-scenes were so familiar.

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            I think those are the only scenes that aren’t from Nasu. I’m glad that most VN writers are slightly more capable of writing erotic scenes.

        • OtakuSheppug

          Whelp, I guess I’m the only one who found H-art of Saber hawt.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Which Saber are we speaking of? Ayako’s or Sakura’s? And yes I am aware of the in-joke just sitting there.

          • OtakuSheppug

            Every Saber is moe.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            But if you don’t consider Sakura more moe, every world will end.

          • OtakuSheppug

            >world explodes

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Notice me senpai and onii-chan! Damn you to h*ll senpai and onii-chan.

    • Guest

      when she was 12 shirou was probably still an embryo or floating around somewhere(but still seems creepy).

  • Alex

    Amazing how we seem to get everything Fate/Stay related appart from the VN itself

  • I’ll have to get this eventually.

  • Rander

    Do you think they’ll include the adult scene CG too?

    • Foryth

      No, they haven’t.

      I already got the japanese edition myself, but it’s still pretty cool of Udon to release it here. I just happened to see it in a local store the other day.

      • Rander

        I see. I would be surprised if they did.

  • nonscpo

    I wasnt a fan of the anime, I forced myself to watch up till episode 6 before I couldnt take it anymore. I think a PSP game was localized by Aksys, anybody know if that game was any good?

    • 0nsen

      If you mean Fate/Extra than no, this one isn’t any good. Not even if you adore the fate universe.

    • kyrt

      fate/extra was decent and entertaining enough but no where near as good as most other entries in the nasuverse. It apparently did not sell all that well since the sequel CCC or any other fate stay games have failed to be released in the west since.

      • Lynx

        iirc, Extra sold fine. The reason we probably didn’t get CCC was when it was released. Had it not been hit by that delay, it was possible that we could’ve gotten it.

        PSP games in NA at that time when CCC came out wouldn’t do that great. I wish people would take advantage on digital PSP games, that way you can get both Vita and PSP.

  • César H. Sandoval

    Got mine, such a great book. I hope the release the others as well.

  • CamulaHikari

    Added to my wishlist! Hope my local shop offers a copy soon. c:

  • Anna Scruton

    My parentals got me this for my birthday which was on the 11th of this month annnnd the book came in the mail on the 9th. Either I got my book SUPER early or Siliconera is slow.
