New art signals the beginning of upcoming Ufotable event.
In China and Japan, "White Day" (March 14) is the day men give women gifts as a token of their appreciation for the women's previous gifts of Valentine chocolate. This year, the gentlemen of Ufotable's various properties are feeling generous toward their female fans -- and a few pieces of Fate-related art mark the lead-in to a special White Day event.
The new art features Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald, Tokiomi Tohsaka, and Gilgamesh bestowing tokens of their affection on you in a fancy restaurant setting. And while this on its own is a cute White Day gift, it's just the beginning of Ufotable's plans.
Three more art pieces, featuring gentlemen from the Tales of series, have yet to be revealed. And all six designs will form the promotional art for an event taking place this month at the Ufotable Cafe.
Tokushima's ufotable DINING, as well as the Tokyo and Nagoya locations of the Machi Asobi Cafe, will be taking part in the White Day festivities. The event will run March 14-26 and feature special menu items, postcards with meal orders, and limited-edition merchandise featuring the event art.
More information will be available closer to opening.
