Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Anime

Discuss the UBW anime coming out from UFOtable here. (NOTE: Do not complain about the route not being Fate in here! That is not why this thread exists. So please don't bring it up)

Fuck yeah, UBW!

Honestly, I'm excited that UBW is getting an adaptation and not Fate.  However, admittedly, I'm surprised they're doing UBW.  However, it wouldn't be too difficult to merge the routes.  Start with Fate and then segue into UBW to appease the Saber fags.

They just need to remember that Rin's the true heroine of FSN. (Hey Uberochi said this himself, and I gotta agree with Butcher Gen's logic over Nasu's.  He's a better writer.)

I'm pretty excite as well. :3 The news completely shocked me as well, but I'm pretty damn happy regardless. Because this is pretty much one of the best possible outcomes we could have gotten. Combined with the fact that I have a fair few... issues, with Fate, and I'm a pretty happy camper right now.

Rin's indeed the best heroine, and the true one. There's a reason she's so insanely popular even in light of Saber's insane popularity, especially in the West.

Quite the statement, I don't buy it for even a second mind you. For my money i find it the term "True hero/heroine" to be massive wrong on principle. But that's just me, think as you wish guys.

Well, I suspect they'll mostly follow UBW, but with a bit of extra stuff from Saber's route added in (such as Shirou dreaming of her past). After all, Saber has a reasonably big role in UBW as it is (although, it's amusing that Saber ends up as the servant of the route heroine in both of the routes she's not the heroine in).

I do wonder if they'll cover Sakura at all, though. I mean, obviously the fact that they're doing HF means they don't need to focus on her that much, but she is still Rin's sister, and unlike with the VN that's not something that most of the audience will be unaware of.

Rin's indeed the best heroine, and the true one.

I'm not so sure about that. I mean, the best and true heroine is a Tohsaka, but you've got the wrong one :P

I would argue I have the best heroine of all as my waifu- though while he is indeed going to be prominent in this anime, sadly his last name ain't Tohsaka. :P (what have i become)

Well, Lancer did say in that one comic that Archer was the best house wife he's ever met.

Hmm, an interesting thing I just saw on another forum. Apparently, when Ufotable said about "original content", that was actually a mistranslation. The actual wording was:

Since nobody's bothering, Miura's talking about the scenario meetings and how Nasu was talking about this stuff you couldn't figure out from just playing the game and background tidbits.
The interviewer asks him what kind of stuff this was and Miura gives an answer that wasn't put on print.
The interviewer's excited response was that was information that really was new info that wasn't in any of the Type Moon material books. And wowzers.

So, I'm wondering what sort of new information this might be. Things that are meant to be sort-of implied in the VN, but aren't explicit. In particular, I am wondering about Zouken. There's a scene in UBW where Shinji takes Gil into the basement, and he was crushing worms. For a long time, I've heard suggestions that that scene implies that Gil had killed Zouken (or was about to), and that Sakura is therefore safe post-UBW. If that is true, then that scene would make a very good candidate for added material. It doesn't change the story at all (because it happened in the VN, it's just not shown), but adding it would mean that Sakura's situation was resolved.

And, it does make logical sense. The scene with Gil in the Matou basement is kind-of pointless if all he's doing is stomping on a few worms, since the reader at the time is unaware of what the worms really are. So, why include it at all? If, however, it's meant to imply Zouken's death, then that is good reason for it to be there, and they can't be more explicit because it would be a HF spoiler. However, for the anime I doubt they're going to worry about spoilering Zouken's true nature, since they'll assume people know Zero, so they could show his death more explicitly.

What do you guys think? And, also, what other implied scenes do you think they could add?

We'll see what they add when they add it- that's my general attitude towards this sort of thing (note that this isn't an attempt to shut down discussion so much as a round about way of saying, "I don't have much to say about this." :P). Though I'm kinda hoping they add more stuff with Lancer, oddly enough. To help build up more to him helping out Rin later. That and because Lancer is fun.

Well, I'm not sure how they can really include much more Rider, but the rest probably makes sense.

What do you think of what I posted, though? The stuff about "new information", and how it might apply to Sakura and Zouken.

Oh posts don't merge.

Yeah, sorry, that's a vBulletin mod....

Well, it would definitely be. Do you think it's plausible, though? I had a lot of people on AnimeSuki telling me otherwise....
