I figured it would be worthwhile to start a new thread about this topic, since the discussion thread for the Unlimited Blade Works anime is mostly about this topic, and not about the anime itself. I still think the discussion is worthwhile, but I thought it might be better served elsewhere.

Many viewers (myself included) have read and are quite familiar with the Fate franchise as a whole, and are particularly interested in the ways in which the current anime differs from the visual novel. Unfortunately, this topic tends to involve discussing things that have not happened in this series yet, and topics that are from other parts of the visual novel entirely.

Just throwing this out as a warning: this discussion will probably involve things that haven't happened in the series yet. If you're looking for a thread that is specifically just about that series, you might be better served by:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-833945/fatestay-night-2014-unlimited-blade-works-anticipation-and-discussion.

Anyway, I've never started a thread before, but I figured this was a good time to do so.

Might as well start with a basic question:

How do you feel about this adaptation of Unlimited Blade Works? Are there things that have changed you like? Are there things that are left that that you wish were there?

Note about spoilers: I think that content from the visual novel and Fate/Zero should be fine to discuss without spoilers; extended information, from sources like Fate/Hollow Ataraxia or similar works not available in English should probably be spoilered if they are plot-relevant.

I'm hoping to make this a thread where people who have read the visual novel, or are familiar enough with it, feel comfortable discussing content that's beyond the scope of just the anime, in a discussion about the anime.

If possible, can you also post the stats of the servants that have been revealed so far in spoiler tags? (just the ones that have been revealed so far from the anime)

The only thing I am expecting is the Unlimited Blade Works chant.

That is all I want.

Now that thread is unlocked so far the current anime is impressive though only 4 episodes in so time will tell if that continues. Love the spell effects that give oomph to them, the opening, and fights (though this seems to be UBW's strong point so they'd be expected to be good). I also like the little callbacks/nuances to Fate/Zero.

YES! Thank you! This thread is needed! To celebrate, here's some gifs:



And since spoilers will be here, that means I won't have to use the spoiler tag?

Curious about this too

Do you want the letter grades? That I can do:



I'm not entirely too sure how useful that information is, though. I can explain more about them, but at that point, you'd probably be better served by checking the Type Moon wiki.

I think that should be the point of this thread, so we can talk about future events without a spoiler tag mess. A mod should put in the title that spoilers will be in this thread.

Shouldn't this be in the manga forum?

No, because we'll also be talking about its adaptations. So it's relevant here. Even lorreen gave it the green light.

Ah. OP might want to edit title to include "spoilers!" or something.

I can't wait for the scene with Rin forming a contract with Saber and Archer unleashing Unlimited Blade Works right after. It sucks that it won't be animated till the second half.

The main source for this is a VN, not a manga. There is already a (tiny) thread for the VN in PC Gaming, but this discussion is comprehensive in including the anime series, movies, etc. Since it's all encompassing and, based on what was happening in the Unlimited Blade Works thread, will include a lot of cross comparisons and direct discussion of the anime adaptations, the Anime forum is a fine place for it.

I would say, "use your judgement", but this *is* the internet.

I think that content from the visual novel and Fate/Zero should be fine (I'll actually add that to the header); extended information, from sources like Fate/Hollow Ataraxia or similar works not available in English should probably be spoilered if they are plot-relevant.

I'm hoping to make this a thread where people who have read the visual novel, or are familiar enough with it, feel comfortable discussing content that's beyond the scope of just the anime, in a discussion about the anime.

Thanks, I should have put that in there in the first place.

Ya that's what I was saying..... Then people won't wander in here and accidentally get spoiled.
