Svelte Saber Alter Figure

I really like figures, figmas, nendoroids and the assorted variety but I’ll be the first to admit I know nothing about them. But I do know what I like when I see it. Point in case is this gorgeous figure I just found on Sankaku Complex…the Saber Alter figure. This one coming from Fate/Grand Order, a mobile game.

Look how amazingly stunning she is! Unfortunately, she won’t be up for sale until November this year so potential collectors still have a while to wait before nabbing her.

Fate/Stay Night Trailer English Sub

Here’s a look at the trailer for the forthcoming reimagining of Fate/stay night with English subs. Studio ufotable is making all this possible and bringing the new anime to the small screen.

The anime will be receiving a special launch screening in North America at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles, CA on September 28th.

Video Snippet From Fate/Stay Night Remake

Saber fans, you are on alert. Ufotable, behind the amazing Fate series, have shown a snippet of video from the forthcoming remake of Fate/Stay Night for 2014. Even better, it shows Saber in action against Lancer and it’s looking good. The video was recently shown off at the  Machi✩Asobi event which was held in Tokushima City where Ufotable are based.

It’s only a blink and you’ll miss it video at just over 1 minute long but I think fans will agree with me when I say new footage is better than no footage.

Fate/Stay Night Dance Posters

If you happen to be in the Tokushima Prefecture between August 12 to 15, you’re going to be in for a treat. Every year between those dates, the Awa Odori (Dance) Festival is held.
