Fate/stay night Movie Announced

punk-saber_0.jpg

Type-Moon mega-hit Fate/stay night is to receive a further anime adaptation in the form of a theatrical movie edition.

The announcement comes obliquely by way of the opening of the official movie site, though it is devoid of content.

Just what direction the story will take is likely to be the immediate object of interest, with the 2006 anime and the original visual novel apparently having tied things up already, though there is likely ample material remaining in the many followup works…

    You've never played the visual novels have you? The anime followed the first route of the game (the Fate route). We're hoping that the movie will follow either the second route (the Unlimited Blade Works route which was fucking AWESOME) or the third route (the Heaven's Feel route which was also awesome though not as much).

    The anime sucked compared to the VN but I still thought it was decent on its own. If it's of the same quality as the Kara no Kyoukai movies but with the UBW route it'll be the best fucking thing ever though.

    Heavens Feel would be pretty awesome though. Deeper more dark and interesting story line I can see fitting into a movie better. The only amazing fight in UBW was between Archer and Lancer. The one between Shirou and Archer was just a billion lines of text and a couple sword slashes.

    I'd rather have Fate/Zero movie. Least then it'd get its first animated adaption (that I know of).

    Type-moon seems to be making a lot of movies recently. Hopefully this movie follows UBW route but if it just retells what happened in the anime then I hope that they switch out the cg dragon scene with the H-scene from the game.

    Maybe the movie will follow Illya's route that had to be cut from the game.

    It most likely wont be a remake considering they have the UBW and HF route from the VN to do still(and the image on the site supports the UBW theory)but if it is a remake it'll most likely be followed by either a UBW or HF series/movie. At least I hope.

    Some say UBW some say HF.....I'd say Fate/Zero. (Irisviel here anyone ?)

    I won't mind whatever path they'll put into the movie, just hoped it won't be somesort of compressed series into one movie with a little add-on's.

    If the animation is Kara no Kyoukai quality then it's definitely gonna be good.

    "REBUILD OF F/S".
    They'll probably just retell the story with new twists or something.
    I wonder if they'll also get ufotable to produce the theatrical release(s) this time around.

    Probably what they always do with tv shows turn movie. Outside of 'Eureka Seven' and 'Escaflowne' that completely changed the story. They usually just compile the shows into a sixty minute movie.

    Got small hope for this one. But I'll never know till it comes out.

    hm.. cant decide between UBW's Shirou vs Gilgamesh or HF's Nine Lives.
    UBW also has Gar Lancer.
    But HF has true Asassin..

    id go with HF. Kirei is badass, the last fight is awesome.

    also, MAPO TOFU SCENE DO WANT.

    and, sakura sex. lots and lots of sakura sex.

    obviously they're doing UBW. it doesn't take any japanese to read Unlimited Blade Works at the center of their web site.

    UBW was kinda over rated, other than the epic fight between Archer and Shirou, tha was awesome but that still does not top HF and the action it contains and how can you deny Sakura and Saber Alter, also there is the epicness of Shirou's abilitys in this arch and how he oh yeah owned Dark Berserker in one Shot.

    Nine-Lives Blade Works!

    Damn! More epicness to come! Am already drooling to see more of Saber, with a bit of Rider and Rin!

    The GAR has been revived! More of Archer!

    Also... More of the epitome of epicness, Shirou and Kotomine!

    Am drooling... am going to hibernate til this comes out...(Am kidding, wish I could, though sadly, I have a life.)

    The movie will not have the ending that Unlimited Blade Works had. Shirou dies, Caster kills Rin, Illiya get's slain by Lancer, Gilgamesh gets turned to stone by Rider. And Rider will stand victorious, then have some hot lesbian sex with Caster, Taiga, Saber, and Sakura.

    I so totally wish that could have been the case.

    At the very least, I hope they'll make it slightly based on the manga version (which is also an UBW adaption) where Rider gets some extra well-deserved screen time as well as some additional awesomeness points. Her fate in the orifinal UBW route is just too sad and painful. =(

    I did like HF. It was dark, deep, and highly entertaining. However, it felt rather.... incongruous, compared with the other routes. And therefore not an accurate representation of the work as a whole. UBW would obviously be better movie material. It's concise, action-filled, and does not deviate overly from the canon while being fairly original. It would be both a very Crowd-pleasing work, as well as appealing to old fans of the game and anime.

    Fate was too dull. UBW was good, In my opinion, the best out of the three, although I have read numerous comments complaining about 'Emo Archer'. I must ask you of this, all of you trolls and anons, and honest, excited FSN fans, What is wrong with this 'Emoness'. Granted, our perception of 'Emos' as gothic, self-harming nihilists may be prevalent, but does that really apply in the context of a game? Can one really empathise with the overwhelming despair of this man? Though he is, of course, fiction. Then ask yourselves, does he have reason for his course of action?

    It's probably because Archer's "emoness" and reason for wanting to kill his younger self seems altogether contrived and, as a result, is just irritating to many. His history is spoken in incredibly vague terms, about not being able to fulfill his version of what a hero should be like, and being torn by the concept of having to sacrifice a few to save many (that's really all you're told. it sounds like a rough synopsis more than anything). Believability is difficult to achieve under those terms.

    Archer's story is a parallel to Saber's story, where they both became heroic spirits because they felt they had not accomplished anything in their lives despite their efforts, and have entered the Holy Grail War for the single purpose of erasing themselves from existence. If you found the Fate arc dull, why is UBW any different? My only guess is that people love Tohsaka Rin that much (not that it's a bad thing).

    I must agree with you in that Archer's History is very vague,although I'm sure it's not just 'Torn by the concept of having to sacrifice a few to save many' His principles that were destroyed, as I see it, were a bit different, but that can be argued. As for the believability, well... it was reasonable enough to me. I don't know. Perhaps I'm just a freak of nature. And does believability really matter in the first place? I mean, this game is Fantasy, after all.

    As for the fact that Fate and UBW were parallels, I must disagree on that one. While Saber's story.... it was good, although lacking in terms of engaging plot twists and the like. It felt like just Shiro against all the other masters. While in terms of character dynamics, UBW is more intricate and web-like. There is conflict amongst the other masters as well, which is not seen in Fate. Not that there aren't any regrettable parts of UBW that I hope they won't show in the movie. Like the Date. It completely broke the atmosphere for me.

    You claim that the servants "entered the Holy Grail War for the single purpose of erasing themselves from existence". You might find that contrived and dull. I, however, find it more or less ironic. These heroes that have spent a lifetime serving others and earning a place in legend as their reward, want nothing but to erase that very position. Is that not irony?

    I would very much like to hear your ideas on the matter, Anon, care to continue?

    HF was very enjoyable, but it just didn't seem to fit in. It felt like a different game from FSN, something far more dark. And since it, although a good game, Did not fit in, I cannot call it the best FSN route. Akin to bringing a Superb Tart to a contest, that of cakes. No matter how good it may be, it well never be a 'cake'. Just like No matter how well HF may be made, it will never be a 'true' FSN, at least from my perspective.

    Does your tart/cake analogy actually make sense to you? Does your concept of incongruity -- even though there was no explanation whatsoever as to why you feel that way -- seem justified? Looking at your awkward use of language and lack of any supporting evidence, it really seems like you're trying too hard at affecting an intelligent argument.

    I must admit, my use of analogies is awkward at best, and I would greatly appreciate any input. I didn't use too much empirical evidence, I guess, but in this context, it is difficult to find any 'evidence', since events can be interpreted differently. But if you desire evidence, I shall present some. If I word something awkwardly, please enlighten me. Assuming you are the Anon who posted the article below, I shall reply to your reply in a reply to the following reply.

    Simple, fans of that scenario are angry it's not getting animated, like fans of UBW and HF were pissed when Fate was used for the anime. Either way, if this movie is a success then we'll be able to look forward to having the other scenarios animated.

    P.S. "Sakura will never be cake"

    agreed.
