We haven't had an anime discussion thread around here for a long time... so why not start again with one that people have been looking forward to for years.. HYPE. The FIRST F/SN anime adaption! THE FIRST!


Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works by Ufotable

After this post, there could possibly be unmarked spoilers and such, so obviously do not read if you haven't watched the episode. If you are describing VN spoilers that the episodes have not covered yet, just mark them in spoiler boxes.

Besides the godly animation and such, what I like the most is that it feels like they're taking their sweet time with it (which makes you wonder just how many episodes it's going to have). It felt like the VN, to a certain degree at least. That's a very good thing. It was very easy to "settle in" because of it. Helps of course that this first episode was extra long.


Lancer... I kinda missed him to be honest, lol. I like this Lancer a whole lot more than the one in F/Z.

Well, I guess I miss(ed) most of the characters in FSN though. There's many, many left that still needs to be introduced. Like REJOICE, Emiya Shirou.

Soo after seeing it again in all it`s glory,I have to say All Hail to mighty Studio Ufotable. This show looks so fucking fucking good and with Zankyou no Terror last season,which looked amazing this even tops it by a good chunk. Well enough fantasizing about the animation. As Harle said I like that they made it slow and really close to the original ,but I expected that from Ufotable to some degree. I also liked how they used some Fate/zero tracks for the music and hope there will be more godly music(hoping for Epic Emiya Remix) The Opening was okay,though I have to hear it a few more times to actually judge that. Now with next weeks Episode also being 1 hour long, let us all REJOICE and see how the rest will be.

What an excellent episode. They pretty much adapted the prologue scene for scene. It was really nice seeing some characters again like harle said.. really missed Lancer :P The fight scene between Archer and Lancer in the VN is probably the first scene in the VN when I knew it was going to be a really good read. Rin is my favorite out of the main trio, so I thought she had some funny moments as well.

You're right, there are some hints and details that are either not present in the VN (like the one you mentioned), or, they're more hidden in the VN. Though it's been a while so it's hard to remember all the little details. Anyway, some might not see it as a positive change, but I think it's cool.

Also after browsing through MAL forums a bit and confirming it myself,it seems that they cut a scene out of the tv-release contrary to the cinema pre-screening, namely being Rin and Archer visiting the burning field location and discussing the great fire and reality Marbles there. Should be in the BD later hopefuly. With that being said I hope that there won`t be much else scenes that are ommitted in the tv release...

Yep. And that's pretty much the only negative that could be said for the first episode (assuming you didn't watch the pre-screening). But it won't even be that once the BD releases and everyone ends up watching that instead. Don't see a reason why they would only show that scene in the pre-screening and nowhere else, so it gotta be in the BD at least. It's actually a pretty good and informative scene if I remember correctly from the VN... but the kind of information that scene tells you shows up elsewhere in future scenes as well I think, so it should be fine.

I don't think scenes will be omitted in the later episodes since those will at least be of standard episode length. And no pre-screening involved with them either.

Still feel abit crestfallen that UBW is the new series and not Heavens Feel. Heavens Feel getting shoved into a movie is going to end up like the old UBW movie, completely glossed over and basically a highlights reel. =/

Don't get me wrong, Rin is my no.1 waifu in the F/SN universe - It's just UBW has already been done (albiet poorly). That and Fate/Zero totally convinced me it would lead into Heavens Feel.

Ufotable doesn't seem the type to do that to a type-moon work... my bet is we have a series of Heavens Feel movies like the Kara no Kyoukai movies.. except probably not as many. Even if it's just a single movie, i'm sure they'll make it as best as they can.

You don't have to worry about that because HF is (almost) certainly getting more than just one movie. I mean it doesn't make sense that it would only get one anyway. Why would ufotable make a clearly solid adaptation for UBW but then decide to get one movie for HF, which wouldn't be enough?`No they wouldn't I don't think. They're already familiar with the several movie-style format thanks to KnK too, so it wouldn't be something new to them. At the moment on MAL it says that HF is 1 movie, but that's because ufotable hasn't said anything about how many movies there'll be yet.

But yes we'll have to wait quite a long time until HF comes out. I want to see that the most but what can you do.

OMG that first Episode. That GAE BOLG<3<3<3 I just love it. I just do.

Harlequin
10-12-2014, 03:19 AM
(Ep01)

Did not disappoint. Again, staying on point with the VN (is that the right way to put it? whatever). I mean, how much even needs to be said? It was great. Exactly as it should be, in my opinion. The early "calm" parts are pretty much exactly what you get in the VN. Same with the later parts really... same kind of pacing. I bet SOME unimportant scenes were skipped, but that's to be expected. To be honest I think I like seeng these slice of life scenes animated more than I did reading them. Specifically the ones that take place at Emiya's house. Hmm... yea, maybe ... well it was good whatever the case.

The Gae Bolg noble phantasm looked beautiful and awesome animated. Great fight in general.

Oh yea, actually got the OP and ED this time. They were both nice. Some sweet, sweet teasers in the OP of things to come.

As short as it may have been, Illya's first appearance here was amazing. I love that "slightly" sinister nature of her. I believe the next episode will have both her and Berserker, so I'm looking forward to that.

Now to wait another week for episode 2. Fuck me............................

Time will tell I soppose (regarding HF) - setting aside my complaints, I admit I am looking forward to UBW having a "proper" telling of the tale. <3 Rin,

Lol, my only dislike for UBW stems from something really weird - I have a strong dislike of Archer, and the closeness Rin and him share; it never really feels like a "Rin and Shirou" story, and is rather more of some weird triangle instead. :P

Yeah, that is pretty weird :P I actually like that part.

Anyway, obviously another great episode.. well guys, we can't be too spoiled by these 50 minute episodes anymore. Obviously i'm sure they'll keep up the quality.. next episode sounds like some Kotomine explanations.. can't wait!

Have to say though The show does give you more hints on certain things.. like the pendant foreshadowing and Sakura's mark. IIRC, in the VN it was harder to make a conclusion on these things.. I believe there wasn't a CG for her mark, and the pendant scene in the VN was Shirou trying to clean up to hide the evidence. Again, not bad things or anything... or maybe it's just because we've read the VN that it's more obvious.

Yea I'm pretty sure it's more clear here than in the VN. Now there's been several hints in just two episodes. I mean the pendant scene is really damn obvious to be honest. It's just easier to notice it all when it's animated and when there's less details to take in overall... and it does get more focus than in the VN, yea. Either that or I'm just remembering wrong. Either way, I'm pretty sure I would've noticed it here in the anime even if I was completely new to the series. "Shirou picks up the pendant Rin left there... ... but... wait... Archer is the one who gave back the pendant to her in the prologue - an empty pendant at that..." HOWEVER, would someone normally come to the conclusion that Archer is somehow the future Emiya Shirou, etc. etc. from that? Maybe not. It's probably too early in the story in general for someone to come to that wild of a conclusion. It's not like they would be able to explain it properly in any way. It's simply too weird. Well, whatever. I don't mind.

So our Luxus of 1 hour episodes has ended and we get only normal episodes now. Is that a reason to be sad,well yes,but it`S still top quality. This episode was quite Dialogue heavy,introduces our all beloved Fake Priest Kotomine Kirei. Pacing wise it was really good and think again close to the VN(it slowly gets a bit difficult to track in my mind...). Also that cliffhanger<3<3<3

Really nice Episode 5/5

EDIT: Another thing that might make it pretty.. or REALLY obvious, is the fact that the church is dark and creepy. In the VN, it's bright and he's just like a normal priest.. this just gives it away.. I mean, it's not a HUGE twist, but still

Harlequin
10-19-2014, 05:51 AM
Well, that was pretty straightforward. Not much to say. It's... how it happens in the VN. It's remarkable isn't it? How often do you get shows where they take exactly as much time as necessary? But yes,


Another thing that might make it pretty.. or REALLY obvious, is the fact that the church is dark and creepy. In the VN, it's bright and he's just like a normal priest.. this just gives it away.. I mean, it's not a HUGE twist, but still

there's a difference in how certain scenes end up looking and sounding compared to the VN. Like this one.

And personally I really liked the lit up scenery with that slightly ominous Church on the Hill playing in the background. So if I had to choose one of the two then I'd go with the VN style in this case. But whatever, this is fine too.

And I didn't expect that kind of music tune to play when they zoomed in on Illya and Berserker. A bit surprising, but it was cool and appropriate I think. "Big Bad Berserker, you should be worried"

Wow, they are really changing the storyline compared to VN. It's not a bad thing at all, but didn't they reveal Gilgamesh a bit too early? Well, it doesn't really matter as long as they keep making more episodes that have such epic fighting scenes <3

And btw, why is there a magic circle in the shed of Shirou's house? Yes, I know that Kiritsugu lived there, but he summoned Saber in the Einzbern's castle, so it can't be the same. Does anyone remember if that was ever explained?

Alfadios
10-25-2014, 11:15 PM
Well concerning the blonde Foreigner in this episode,as he was already in the prologue it`s not like he was revealed to earlyBut I liked that scene. The scene with Illya fighting Rin was also nice,it showed pretty much how strong a Master Illya really is,also nice refrence to F/Z.So both anime Original scenes were pretty nice for me.

All in all I absolutely love this Episode from the OST,to the extra scenes,to the fights.

AND those fight scenes,those Motherfucking Awesome fight scenes,they really show how big Ufotable`s Budget is,namely UNLIMITED xD.
Also that Galadbolg II<3<3<3 and this:

Pretty sure Irisviel and Saber drew the circle 10 years earlier in the events of Zero

Another awesome episode.. while the other episodes pretty much followed scene by scene, this one had more original content.. not that it's bad or anything, it seems to be working mostly fine so far.

True, but this scene proved that he is an important person and somehow connected with Kotomine WAY earlier than how it was in VN.

ale137
10-26-2014, 12:52 AM
Thats taken common knowloge now since most people waching this alredy saw Fate/Zero and know that Kotomine is Gilgamesh master, so its not a spoiler.
Another reference to Zero could be how saver was a little frustrated when she saw Illya and made the conection between her and Irisviel or in Ep.2 when Kotomine tightens his fists when he talks about the Master that put his hands in the 4th war.

And the circle
was made by Irisviel to prepare for when her functions as a human get turn off so she can become the grail.

Alfadios
10-26-2014, 01:00 AM
Actually NO. The series is to be seen as a standalone and everything concerning Fate/Zero should be seen as NOT be known. Of course there are refrences here and there you get when you know that stuff,but no knowledge should be required. SO it may be a bit early to show that they both are connected,but we don`t know how yet and if it really is important.

Whatever, it was excellent as usual. It feels like I'm actually getting everything that's necessary with this adaptation. Pure bliss, basically. You can just watch one of these episodes without having to worry that it's going to fail horribly somehow.

There was a scene (text only) where Rin and Archer went to an office building and found collapsed people. There may have been a few lines about the bone warriors as well but I'm not 100% sure.

They haven't officially found out who Caster's master is yet, which will probably happen next episode. This is a total guess on my part, but I think they might leave off at the part where Archer betrays Rin as a midpoint in the series

I just went through all the episodes. Ufotable really is amazing, this the best anime adaptation i have ever seen. Some scenes are not in the vn, but they being added just makes it better, not worse. Fight scenes are awesome. But some of them are a bit over the top. Like the scene with berserker against saber where saber stuck his sword in the ground..i never understood that animation sequence where saber was somewhat dancing in the air. Also, kuzuki vs shirou, i wonder how shirou manages to wound kuzuki's hands with those hastily made swords(and those swords didn't even break after taking a few blows). Is that how it was in the vn? Also, i find it hard to believe that their fight could break the concrete on the road.

And does anyone else feels like the artist put all their hate when drew him???
Every time i saw him it was like he was a little different from the background and i wanted to skip that part even though he wasnt doing anything.

not surprising at all... LOL
after all, be it fate, UBW, or specially HF, shinji was meant to be hated...

next ep will probably be a slow one for those itching for more of the action... but no complaints so far...

To be fair, he's like that a lot in the actual route. We don't truly know how much of a douchebag he really is until HF.

What an episode! The story of Caster's master was great, and the action scene at the end was totally awesome. 5/5 stuff for sure.

I. AM. A. FUCKING. PSICHIYC.
Did you see shinji grand entrance at the end. We just need a rock to flatten him and then he just blows on his finger to be whole again.
Heaven feel is going to totally ruin Durarara, Monogotari and Denpa kyoushi for me.

Great episode, but apparently the BDs add a whole 7 minutes to this episode, god damn. It'll be worth the rewatch later on it seems.

Bleh, I'm a patient man... but not that patient.

I'm guessing it's close to done? last time I peeked in on the news about the series, I saw a few snapshots of Shirou fighting Gilgamesh.

Is it all done? Or is there still an episode or two to go?

It's done now.

By the way, you made the right choice in waiting. This series, just like F/Z, would be quite a lot better to marathon than to watch on a weekly basis.

Also remember to get the BDs for Season 1 at least since those are actually out right now. NT &#62; [UTW]_Fate_stay_night_Unlimited_Blade_Works_-_00-12_[BD][h264-1080p][FLAC] (http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=683157)

Just finished episode 12, figured I'd take a small break. So far I am not dissapointed. :)

Character art is flawless, and they are mostly faithful to the VN as for story-telling and dialouge, with some nice additions.

Music is pretty generic and boring however =/ (I didn't notice any signature themes at all? or perhaps I was too busy watching to notice :P) But perhaps it'll pick up in the 2nd half.

With all the obvious hints they've shown off about Sakura in Zero, and even in this current route, UFO better do a good job with Heavens Feel.

I wasn't too impressed with the music in S1 either. S2 has better tracks.

The full season 2 OST that comes out later is going to be really awesome tbh. Looking forward to it.

Heaven's Feel will might just be ONE regular length movie. http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1401574&show=0

I don't fucking even.


edit: Apparently it's not actually confirmed to be one movie. There might've been some misunderstanding/mistranslation. Not sure, they''ve been talking about it in that thread though. I really hope it's not true.

Are you really saying that it was a lie at the end of the last episode of UBW when it showed the teaser for the HF movie?

Huh? Lie? What? The teaser is real. HF is getting adapted. It'll be in movie format. That much we know.

Just to clarify - it might be a misunderstanding in that thread that HF will only be ONE movie. That's the main point here. We obviously want it to be multiple movies, and honestly I think most people thought it would be. But... maybe it'll just be one. We don't know for sure.

Ah ok, I misunderstood and thought that there won't be any adaptions.

God I hope its a mistranslation/misunderstanding.... but I did read a quote somewhere of Nasu saying in a interview he'd like it to "at least be an OVA" I don't know how real that quote was, as it was a second-hand translation out of context, but might show how he feels about Heavens Feel - would explain the utter resistance to adapt it up to now - even going so far as picking UBW a "2nd" time for adaption over it.

But seriously, if it's a single movie *rage slowly starts to bubble*. I will pretty salty, needless to say lol...

In the meantime, I should wactch the rest of ubw, now that I have soem time. :)

All done - like you said, the music got a bit better in the last half - still not completely satisfied, but it was pretty decent.

UFO did a good job, and I like how they tied in Saber, and her own backstory/troubles and eventual resolution - even though it was only implied in the VN, and not directly brought out.

Great story, and well produced - but damn is it frustrating. It remains my least favorite of the three arcs, which is funny because Rin is my #1 girl. Guess I just want her to be happy for the rest of her life - without her having to worry about and deal with Shirou's stubborn and self-destructive road to hell. Talk about falling in love with the wrong person~ But that's matter opinion I guess, I can respect and admire his preseverence, but I resent his lack of empathy for those that care about him. He might be grateful, but ultimately he will do what he wants - regardless of the feelings of even those that are close. And that just rubs me the wrong way. Ah well, /rant off - I knew thats how it would go the moment I started watching the series, afterall :P

Heavens Feel incoming - hopefully sooner rather then later.
