Fate/Zero is scheduled to get an anime adaptation that airs in October of this year!
As an avid TYPE-MOON fan, I’m thrilled that they decided to animate the prequel to Fate/stay night. Ufotable will be the studio doing the animation work, which is an excellent choice considering the superb work they put into Kara no Kyoukai. The official site has also put up a short preview video under the “Movies” section in which their skill and attention to detail is clearly demonstrated. It even shows Tohsaka Rin as a child along with Saber in her black suit!
I have never actually read the Fate/Zero novel. So besides the flashbacks in Fate/stay night, this will all be new to me. I have always wanted to see the complete story behind the 4th Holy Grail War, although my excitement is somewhat dulled by the fact that I already know how it will end. Nevertheless, this is certainly something to look forward to in the coming months.
