Just finished watching it. Feckin' A, it rocked! It's not quite ufotable's level and quality of art and animation, but there were certainly moments were my jaw dropped a little. Music was cool too, with some of the game's original tracks included. Also, the story is SO much better and deeper than I'd imagined. There's room here for the same amount of depth as the main franchise, and it's got Nasu written all over it. (Nasu being the creator of Fate and other franchises, the collective of which forms a single universe, much in the same way that Alien, Predator, etc. are related.) The special barely covers the first arc of the game - sort of the introduction - and the fact that a second special hasn't been announced makes me really sad that the game hasn't been translated to English. I hope the film does well so that the game ends up getting a Western release. EDIT: I'll say though, I can't imagine this being a very good watch for someone who isn't familiar with the Fate franchise. While they do skim over all, or most, of the relevant background for that universe, it's just that: a quick skim and/or an arguably-obscure reference to the billions of rules there are. Definitely not enough time to grasp how things work in that universe. I'd even put Heavens Feel in the list of suggested-background-knowledge just so the viewer knows where the 'Alter' form of servants even comes from. EDIT 2: sometimes I feel like I should create a separate Fate thread, but I can't justify that on a forum that deals with guitars.
