Rejoice Fate fans! Tickets for the first of three Fate movies now available!

Today, Aniplex of America has officially opened ticket sales for the nationwide theatrical release of the highly anticipated movie, Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] THE MOVIE I. presage flower, on the series’ official homepage. Earlier this week, Aniplex of America, along with the film distribution company AZOLAND PICTURES, announced that they will be holding a special one-night only premiere event at The Theatre at Ace Hotel (Los Angeles, CA) on Friday, November 3rd.  Tickets for both the premiere event and nationwide theatrical release are available at: http://www.fatestaynightusa.com/theater/.

I first got wind of the movie and the trailer at the Crunchyroll Expo 2017. I have the trailer on video, but was asked to remove it nicely. I might put it back up now that it has been officially announced. I was sooo hyped when I saw the trailer and now even more lit to know I can see this in theatres.

 

The star-studded cast of both Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works] and Fate/Zero returns in the first chapter of the epic film trilogy, including Noriaki Sugiyma as protagonist Shirou Emiya, Ayako Kawasumi as Saber, Kana Ueda as Rin Tohsaka, and Noriko Shitaya as the series’ tragic heroine, Sakura Matou. Fan-favorite ufotable (the Garden of Sinners, God Eater) and director Tomonori Sudou (Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works]) also join the team of returning staff for the feature film, along with music by Yuki Kajiura (Sword Art Online franchise, Puella Magi Madoka franchise). Based on the original story by Kinoko Nasu and TYPE-MOON, Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] THE MOVIE I. presage flower brings the Fate series’ unique storytelling and otherworldly cast of characters to the big screen for the first time. Movie-goers will now have a chance to experience the despair, romance, and terrifying secrets of the Holy Grail War in the first chapter of this high-stakes trilogy.

“I know that many people, including the staff and myself, have been looking forward to the Sakura route of Fate/stay night,” says Noriaki Sugiyama at the Heaven’s Feel Talk Show for the Fate/Grand Order Festival in July. “We’ve been done with recording for a while now, so seeing the PV today, I was blown away by the CG and high quality production value. I can’t wait to see it in the theaters! I urge everyone to go watch it not just once, but twice or even three times!”

 

About Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] THE MOVIE I. presage flower:

“If I became a bad person, would you be able to forgive me?”

 

The boy wished to protect the girl. That was his thought.

10 years after the Holy Grail War—a battle waged by Masters and Servants over the wish-granter, the Holy Grail—another war breaks out in Fuyuki City.

Shirou Emiya—the adopted son of Kiritsugu Emiya, a participant of the previous Holy Grail War—resolves to fight, carrying out Kiritsugu’s dying wish.

 

There’s a young girl by Shirou’s side who’s in love with him—Sakura Matou.

Every morning, she goes to Shirou’s house to make breakfast and dinner for him, bringing kindness into the life of a boy utterly alone in the world.

But once the Holy Grail War starts, there’s a change in the air in Fuyuki City.

Murders abound across the city, and the atmosphere grows ominous.

Shirou decides to shelter Sakura in his home.

 

Along with Saber, the Servant he summons, Shirou allies himself with the mage Rin Tohsaka and takes part in the Holy Grail War.

 

But the battle starts to go awry as secret maneuvers by unseen forces are put into play.

North American Launch of Fate/Grand Order Game!!

Today is the day, it’s finally here. You may have heard of me talking about the Fate anime series in multiple posts. Maybe you already know of this great series just like I do. Well, Aniplex and Type-Moon came up with Fate/Grand Order mobile role-playing game in Asian countries. It quickly became a huge hit. Today, you can get the game in the English North American version for IOS and Android. Grab it and let me know what you think!!

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 25, 2017) – Aniplex of America announced that Fate/Grand Order is now available in North America for iOS and Android. Previously only available in select Asian markets (Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau) the free-to-play game continues to outperform other mobile games such as Pokémon GO, Clash Royale, and Candy Crush Saga in worldwide revenue.

Prior to launch, Aniplex staged a highly successful social media campaign on Facebook which allowed fans to unlock exciting content for the game. In-game prizes included the Craft Essence “Beginning of the Journey,” 6,000 Friend Points, ten 4-star Blaze of Wisdom, five each of the 3-star Hero Crystals Sun Fou and Star Fou, a whopping 42 Saint Quartz, and one 4-star Servant from a choice of ten. Additionally, players unlocked the Saber Class Servant SABER LILY. This is Saber after she drew Caliburn the Sword of Selection from the stone, and set off on her path as King. Characterized by her sweet demeanor and lily-like features, her eyes shine bright with hope. Her great intuition and sensitivity toward others mean she cannot ignore those in need. Those touched by her benevolence and generosity call her the “Knight Princess.”

 

One of the most successful mobile role-playing games ever in Japan, Fate/Grand Order has players summon powerful allies or Heroic Spirits, who are based on historical figures such as King Arthur, William Shakespeare, Hercules, and Joan of Arc. The game takes players back through history to embark on an epic quest known as Grand Order. Released July 2015 in Japan, last fall in China, and just this past month in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau, Fate/Grand Order has been downloaded over 9 million times. It has consistently topped iOS and Android charts, outperforming other popular games in downloads and revenue. The game’s exciting storyline and compelling play keep fans engaged and wanting more.

Fate/Grand Order: First Order Anime Preview

So the Fate series is back with their new anime Fate/Grand Order: First Order coming soon. Each series is based off a jrpg game and manga with the same name and characters. So you have: Fate/Zero; Fate/Stay Night; Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works and not in that exact order.

It’s produced by Aniplex, Notes, Type-Moon and Ufotable and so many more have worked on the series. Kinoko Nasu is the original creator for each entity of the Fate series. Kenji Kawai has done the music for the series forever and he’s done the music for most of the best shows in anime. His work dates all the way back to anime in the 80’s, the big one for me is the music from Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Oh, my there is some great music in that show.

Each Fate series centers around the fight to win the one ultimate wish called, “The Holy Grail.” Generations of families that practice magic have fought in the war, some no longer existing at all. Typically, Masters don’t fight alone, they can summon a servant/ to assist them. Servants are usually some historical figure/heroic spirit; fictional and non-fictional. The catch is there are only a few classes of each servant and you get one. The classes are: Archer, Saber, Caster, Lancer, Rider, Assassin, Berserker typically. The master and servant feed off each other’s magic level and the stronger the better. It’s an awesome series and I love each one. Catch it on Crunchyroll 12/31. They do have a linear connection so watch in the correct order.

Fate/Grand Order: First Order is set in the year 2015, during the final era over which magic still held a strong influence. The humanity survival and security organization Chaldea was established to observe the world that can only be seen by magic and the world that can only be measured by science; as well as to prevent the final extinction of humanity.

Thanks to the efforts of many researchers, the path of human history has been ensured for 100 years into the future. However, without warning, the realm of the future that was under constant observation by Chaldea vanished. The extinction of humanity in 2017 was observed—no, confirmed.

The apparent cause of the extinction was in the Japanese city of Fuyuki in 2004. In that city, there was an “unobservable realm” which had never existed until now.

Chaldea issued the Grand Order for a “Holy Grail Expedition,” to investigate, uncover, and possibly destroy the singularity that apparently will cause the extinction of humanity.
