    Film? The route was long enough for a complete series! ...But I guess it would be too soon after the Fate/Stay Night remake. UBW treatment, but a trilogy? Eh... better than nothing. It's ufotable doing the animation, so yay. But how long will the gaps between the films be, I wonder? At least with a series, you're getting it weekly, and a single film is a single film.

    I wonder if they can manage yearly releases or if they are doing it like Digimon Tri is doing, 4 eps or a short movie every 6 months or more like Madoka, which sprinkled its movies over three years.

    Either way, should be fun. Then again, I need to finish UBW some time >_>

    Hopefully? I wouldn't mind overly much if they decided to cut on the dinner scenes in the middle.

    Great news, though, I hope they do justice to it.

    They'll trim off all the fight scenes and include every cooking scene to really capture the essence of Heaven's Feel. :D

    I'm of two minds on this. On one hand, I'm happy to see more Fate/stay night, and Heaven's Feel had some of the best scenes in the entire VN. On the other hand, HF was also a completely disorganized mess - one that was held together by a mishmash of really cool moments and backstory exploration, but ultimately was just a bunch of blatantly left over concepts that couldn't make it into the other routes.

    Honestly, I wanted them to get around to adapting the Fate route, or some other TM titles, like Tsukihime (though they might wait for the new game), but it seems my hopes remain unanswered.

    Whatever, I'm prepared for three movies of the worst girl crying and Shirou acting like a dumb ass. Can't wait.

    Rofl, this is probably the best description of Heaven's Feel I've read. I was so over it by the time I got to the end, I didn't enjoy it as much as I probably would have if it had been a smoother ride.

    Maybe the movies cutting out a lot of shit won't actually be the worst thing ever for the first time. :p

    It'll be interesting to see if Ufotable pull it off.

    Fate Zero was a perfect adaption, but Unlimited Blade Works was really poor as pretty as the visuals were. It just generally felt soulless due to poor pacing, poor scene construction and inappropriate OST choice, making every scene (except for perhaps the Shirou vs Archer fight and Ilya backstory + Gilgamesh attacking her) lack emotion and tension.

    Hopefully they learn from those mistakes and don't make them again.

    One thing ufotable do well is accurate adaptions. How are they going to manage to cram all of Heaven's Feel in 3 movies, when UBW went for a 25 episode season, with what, 3-4 episodes that were 45 minutes long and something insane like 130 min extra footage in the BDs.

    I suppose three movies of 2 hours each is the equivalent of around 24 episodes really.

    Anyway, here's the Realta Nua OP of the HF route to pump you up.

    Yass, I'm totally up for Shirou and Sakura cooking scenes like half of the first movie. At least we'll have something cute, before the disgusting worm rape monster shows up T_T

    A new trailer just dropped.

    I really can't wait to see the fight scenes. It looks like they will be glorious.
