It will be the next(In timeline) after Fate/Stay Night: UBW.

You can see Lord El-Melloi II/Waver Velvet in the aftermath of Fate/Stay Night, passing by Shirou.

Waver Velvet was the master of Rider in the Fate/Zero series.

This is actually Fate series that is canon but doesn't use the word "Fate" in it's title.
I think It's because there will be no holy grail and servants involved in it.

Correct me if I'm wrong.


Well,

Geez, just when you think Fate can't get any larger...



They adapted Himuro no Tenchi manga as a special crossoving with FGO.


That's very scrapping the barrel. Expect adaptations of Capsule Servants, Tiger Coliseum, and many things nobody asked for.


Mahouka and Tsukihime will keep being left alone.

fate isn't in the name, but it's a part of the nasuverse and characters from Fate and other Type-moon entries will appear in it

yeah... so far so good
but I'm actually worried about this going to shit when the TV anime comes out

Jan 3, 2:15 AM by Shayon

Episode was ok, but characters were a little generic. Hopefully it mixes things up a bit more when the full series lands.

Jan 2, 4:35 PM by UserNameError

And Mahoyo/Tsukihime keep being left behind...at least they are emptying the Fate options so fast. Soon they wont have anything else to adapt sans non-Fate stuf.

What's left, HA, SF, Prototype Fragments and more FGO arcs? SF is not ending anytime soon, Requiem is just begining.

Well, I would not mind Salem and Prototype adaptation, to be honest...


ps: 2006 Fate was not bad, even having low budget and like 4 episodes of filler (so what, nobody misses Caster attack on Emiya house and being killed by Gil in like, 15 minutes...at least Kojirou and Kuzuki did something), it still had more soul than UBW.

Liked the fate stay night series(2006 version excluded) so i'll probably watch this. PV not worth mentioning tho.

Jan 2, 11:39 AM by Killuah90

I enjoyed the first episode so I'll watch this. Plus it'll be interesting to see Waver as a grown up dealing with Magus Clock Tower BS.
