Fate//Extra was 80% a Fate remake, and 20% a Fate cash grab.


It was also, for quite a long time, the only legitimate localization of anything Fate-related (aside from the Deen mess and a hilariously incomplete Tokyopop manga bastardization), which, in my case, means that it was my introduction to the universe (and to Nasu's idiosyncratic writing style). I'll acknowledge its faults compared to the (still not localized) original Fate, but I don't think you're giving it enough credit.


Hey, it was a fun game with fun characters. Utilizing the setting more than other fate related content. Rather than rehashing the same characters. I'm really mean to Fate right now, but Extra has a solid chance of being entertaining.


I just want them to cut down on the Rin and Sakura fanservice, focus more on the new and focal characters in the story. I fear that this'll be another Fate/Stay and circle jerk than a solid addition to the fate franchise.

Sure, Illya/Magical Girl managed to be solid, but did you see Unlimited Budget? I'm giving this no wiggle room. Just critical, leering eyes at the show until it proves itself.

HF has far more chances to be bad than this tho.



Okay, based on what though? From what I've read, Tomori Sudou has some experience in the Fate Franchise including episode director of a couple episodes of F/Z- which I found to be quite excellent. He worked on animation for UBW, not directing or story- so he didn't really have anything to do with the way the story went. If you're just worried about Ufotable generally, well again I'd point to F/Z and suggest that they did a fine job there. I'll have to rewatch the episodes he worked on more closely and see if they're standouts or not. As long as it wasn't the zombie episodes, then I'm not too worried (I believe those were 17 and 18).

Inexperienced Director. While he is still better than freaking Miura its still not the pedigree I would expect for such a project. Also Miura's still storyboarding it.

YEs, Ufo did great job with FZ and KNK. And then completely shit their pants with both UfoUBW and God Eater. That means that they are about 50/50 in terms of doing fate justice.

Also Ufo seems to have problems with internalized wordy stories focused on single character's mind. They completely failed to do that in UBW so I have doubts on how they will portray HF. If they decide to pull the same trick with HF it will be complete ass of a movie.

Also without Fate and UBW adaptations HF is pretty much half-baked. HF requires proper Fate and proper UBW and it requires correct and clear understanding of Shirou's character in those routes or it loses most of it's value. We have no fate adaptation and UBW adaptation is beyond messed up to the point of making people hate Shirou and HF Shirou can be VERY unlikable even without messing up the adaptation, so...There are also bound to be
, kind of people who completely missed the point of Shirou's character.

Lack of proper UBW and Fate routes, lack of Shirou characterization, Fate Zero already being released(and thus spoiling most of HF), etc and you have no chances of HF story being good or being received well enough.


So yeah at this point the most one can hope for is for fights to be decent.

Enjoy what is good about the adaptations, and, if they are not up to par, go replay the originals. That is what I say. Considering the success of the animated versions of Zero and U.B.W., I doubt we are going to see another turkey on the order of Deen Fate.

Crikey get that off your chest!
The last thing I will watch any Fate adaptation for (or any anime for that matter) is for fights. Honestly I think Shirou's character has been read into way, wayyyy too deeply which was not helped by UBW. I'm not going to write off these movies before they're even released just because Ufo made lousy mess of it in the second half of UBW. Extra is an adaptation of a Playstation game... and what experiences I've had from any anime adapted from playstation games is that they're pretty much like watching someone play a Playstation game. I'm not too optimistic.

Much of the Fate / Extra story is told VN-style. The video game-y bits are inconsequential, save for the Servant battles, which are a highlight of any Fate property, anyway. As long as the anime maintains the dark tone of the game, it should be all right, IMO.

Main Character: "Why are you dressed that way?"
Saber Extra: "Should the people not look upon the splendid body of their Emperor?"
