Has anyone seen/heard/read the new volume of Type-Moon Ace Volume 9? I am mostly curious as to what they said about the new Fate Stay Night anime by Ufotable. I saw they added stuff to the website but was curious if the magazine had an article. Is there any idication of which route they might be following?
>all fans will be pleased with the adaptation (makes it sound like it's all three routes)
>the characters will have new outfits
>it will be Shirou centric (UBW?)
>Nasu has been in every production meeting and has been info-dumping them with stuff that wasn't in or wasn't made clear in the original source material
>many of the things Nasu has told them will be incorporated into the new anime
>it will have a "sequel-to-Zero" feeling (again, makes it sound like they're doing all the routes)
>voice-acting has already begun, of which 50% of the episodes have already been completed
>airing Fall 2014
They're doing their own route.
Thanks, that is pretty much what I was looking for. Am curious to see how they incorporate all the routes and new outfits are always a plus.
Don't think about it as 3 routes in 1, rather a whole new route that incorporates key moments from all 3 routes without making it a clusterfuck.
At least that's what I hope for.
The interview with the director sounded like he wanted to make Shirou more of an interesting and likeable lead and less of a "woman can't fight but fight for my Saber!" type guy.

I disagree. I can picture a reasonable way of doing it right now.
I can't agree.
Every route has a reason and a ideal for existing that is almost a polar opposite to each other.
That only way I can believe a original route would work is if they go 100% original from head to toe.
But if they do what that fuck is the point of making a "adaptation" in the fucking first place, just to milk the characters for some quick cash?
I still they can just use elements from other routes to make patch together something decent.
>just to milk the characters for some quick cash?
I imagine this is why Nasu does a lot of the things he does.
>milk the characters for some quick cash?
Every new version of Saber ever. Still waiting for that Sakura Saber figure.
Please be excited for Saber (2014 ver.) coming in winter.
I remember reading somewhere that the director wants to show how Shirou really is in the VN and not the first anime.
It better be amazing >.>
If they do all 3 routes it will be a clusterfuck. A very pretty clusterfuck.
