Despite my apparent disdain for the Saber figure rehashes and overpopulated releases by figure companies, I must admit that I’m currently hooked to watching “Fate/Zero” and while there’s a number of really really great anime this season (more than my fingers could count actually), “Fate/Zero’s” right up there with the best of them. This is probably why I’m stoked about the recent news that apart from the excellent anime showing now, there’s going to be another project in store for it, which will be revealed later this week on Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Newtype magazine. I’m guessing this will be a movie at best; maybe make the climactic final battle into one serious balls-to-the-wall gift to the fans of the franchise. Now that would be something to behold considering the 4th Grail War is in my opinion, much more epic in scale than the somewhat more muted 5th one (case in point: Kiritsugu just owns Shiro), but hey at this point, anything Urobuchi throws at us, I’m all for it.
Oh, right. In case you didn’t know, the current “Fate/Zero” TV anime will be split into two parts, with the second part to be aired in April next year; kinda’ like how Sunrise did it with “Geass” and “Gundam OO.”
