A new ad has recently hit Japan for the upcoming Fate/stay night adaptation courtesy of ufotable. The latest ad is all about Saber. which suits me just fine. The new series hits Japan screens this coming Autumn.
Here’s something that a lot of fans have been waiting for. It’s the first ad for the new anime from studio, Ufotable, which is a modern retelling of fantasy light novel, Fate/stay night. Some of the crew that have previously worked on Fate/zero are also joining the crew to help bring this vision to life. Here’s the first trailer, enjoy!
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.
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. The area is also the hometown for Hikaru Kondo who serves as a producer for ufotable on many classic anime’s including the upcoming Fate/Stay night anime.

The Golden Week proceedings have wrapped up in Japan for this year but one of the biggest anime, gaming and manga events, Machi Asobi, was held in the Tokushima Prefecture which is situated on Shikoku island. The word “machi” translates as street, town or city while “asobi” is amusement, playing or game. The event is held bi-annually, normally in May or October, and is put together by studio, ufotable, responsible for Tales of Symphonia, Fate/ZERO andKara no Kyoukai – the Garden of sinners.
The Tokushima City Tourist Association also lend their support to the event. October 2009 saw the first event to be held and the past weekend of May 3rd to the 5th saw the 10th event to be held. Without one of the highlights of the event is the cosplay show, held in the late afternoon of the event’s last day. Over 100 cosplay participants can walk the red carpet which spans 100m throughout the length of the Higashi Shinmachi shopping arcade located in Tokushima-city.

The studio, who have Fate/zero in their resume, will be hoping to tap into the Otakus for their assistance with the blood drive. In the past, they have used Ryunosuke and Saber posters to deliver the message however for this year they’ll be using a Gilgamesh clearfile and poster.
