The Fourth Grail War Starts Next Saturday!!!!

Well it seems from the Tokyo MX TV schedule, Fate/Zero’s premiere time is on the 1st of October 2400 hrs or  in lay-man’s terms Sunday Morning 12am or Midnight Saturday Night.

Screen-grab from the official website

Well it seems that they did a quick redesign of the official website, http://www.fate-zero.jp/, a few weeks back with some extra features and videos.

On top of the first PV and the Comiket PV they have added special feature videos on each of the master/servant pairings here.

Judging from the short peaks of the scenes from the anime, it seems that ufotable has done another terrific job animating the fighting scenes again and giving Fate/Zero a certain high budget anime movie feel like with what they did with Kara no Kyoukai. The short scene in the Comiket PV with Gilgamesh de-materializing into tiny golden particles has to be best I’ve seen so far from the previews.

I was quite sceptical with LiSa performing the OP for this series but it seems from the latest Master/Servant video, that of Kayneth and Lancer, she did quite a good job. Sadly no Kalafina this time >.<

On other news, but still regarding Type-moon, it seems that they are releasing a sequel to their PSP game Fate/extra called Fate/extra CCC.

Another screengrab

Fate/extra was quite an interesting RPG with a slight twist on the whole Fate/Stay Night concept so expect even more crazy twist with this game. Sadly there is no other information available as of yet about this new game but I’ll try to post some more updates in the future.

On another note, the manga adaptation of Fate/Extra just released its first volume this week. It was actually just a special in the monthly Comptiq Magazine but it seems that it was so successful it got serialized. The story is an alternate take on the happenings in the game and the art is superb, resembling Takeuchi Takashi’s original art very closely. Overall quite an interesting read for fans and non-fans alike.


P.S For convenience, links to related post are here and here. Autumn 2011 pwns!!!
