Fate-Stay-Night-first-key-visual-animeThe ninth volume of Kadokawa’s Type-Moon Ace magazine is announcing on Thursday that the new Fate/stay night 2014 anime animated by ufotable will begin airing on Japanese television this fall. Takahiro Miura (Fate/Zero, The Garden of Sinners episode director) will direct the anime, while Atsushi Ikariya, Tomonori Sudou, and Hisayuki Tabata will be adapting Takashi Takeuchi’s original character designs.

Hikaru Kondo, the founder of ufotable, announced mid last year that the animation studio will be producing a new Fate/stay night anime. Kondo did not specify whether the new anime will be a remake of the first series or cover any specific arcs. Speculation on the new series is tough since the promotional video released does not divulge into many new scenes, but the latter parts of the video shows new footage of Saber and Shirou.

Studio DEEN previously animated the Fate/stay night television anime series in 2006. The studio also produced the Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works film in 2010, which covered The Unlimited Blade Works storyline from Type-Moon’s game franchise.

Sentai Filmworks released both the television anime series and the film in North America. Funimation had released the television series before that in 2009. Tokyopop published 11 volumes of Datto Nishiwaki’s manga version in North America before its North American branch shut down in May 2011.

The studio ufotable previously animated the Fate/Zero prequel television anime series that was based on Gen Urobuchi and Type-Moon’s novel. Aniplex of America released that series in North America on Blu-ray Disc, and the company then reissued the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with an English dub.
