I was wondering whether I was going to watch Sora No Method, and the PV has honestly got me more confused as to what genre it's actually in…I think I'll wait until we get a comprehensive synopsis to make a full decision.

The rest is very different, in that the animation is superb.Unlike Deen's.ANd before anyone says that 2006 was long ago, let me remind you that Kara no Kyoukai aired in 2007.
Yes it is perfectly fine to compare 2 shows with different kind of budgets. It is true that ufotable's animation is shiny and eyescandy but that doesn't mean DEEN did such a poor job with the budget they have.

Yes they did.Even with in-universe stuff.

I don't really see difference in the F/SN character designs other than Rin getting new set of clothes. The rest look the same just in different animation style.
Those arent new clothes.Shirou has a new jacket.

The new character design for Fate/Stay Night looks pretty ugly

The design for Fate/Stay Night on the magazine looks pretty ugly
but the character design on the anime looks pretty cool

There's a lot of PVs missing.

The PV list in the briefs thread is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all PVs released in the last week. Rather, it is intended to be a list of PVs that we have not reported elsewhere. All but your Tokyo Ghoul PV were included in the announcements for that anime. I will add the Tokyo Ghoul PV to the post now, thanks.

Nice to see Oohashi Ayaka getting more roles. Don't know who Lynn is, but new seiyuus, yay!

... But Kudou Asuka?

I just looked over the source and I don't see any mention of a Kudou Asuka, but then again, my eyes might just be failing me.

Amazing how much change a simple jacket can bring to change Shirou's overall look. And his hair seems spikier than before, or is it just more detailed. At least it's better than his hair in the Illya anime.
And just looking at those stills of the Archer vs Lancer fight is already giving me the chills. PV where?

THEre is a cam quality PV around....look at the Saber vs Lancer part..
