A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Jun 24, 2012
I really am not for ‘compressing an entire anime series’ into one film. I mean most of those things are obvious money grabs for making a quick buck. Ok, sure, “Evangelion 1.11” and “Evangelion: 2.22” had its merits and the original director (Hideaki Anno) sure knew what to do with his material so that new and old fans can appreciate the compression of the acclaimed anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion“.

Please take note that this quick tip is not a reflection of how I feel about the 24 episode anime series “Fate Stay Night” which I liked because of the epic battles and decent storyline, but this is how I felt about this shameless money grab.

Well, Sentai Filmworks seems to be after an obvious money grab in releasing “Fate/ Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks”. I am familiar with the 24 episode anime series “Fate Stay Night” and I know how ridiculously expensive the series has become. If you think this is a new movie, or something that can help you understand the storyline of the original anime series, then you would be dead wrong.

Not sure, but this anime release seems to have compressed and put together several scenes that may prove relevant in understanding the series, or so they thought. Well, whoever put this together is so bad in editing and seriously, no one can compress 24 episodes into one 105 minute movie. It is choppy, incoherent, mindless scribble and feels more like a 105 minute trailer. Sentai should be ashamed with this release.

The graphics and the film animation have been reworked and remastered on bluray. I mean the battles looked gorgeous. But with the way it is edited, I was more annoyed than able to take in the scenes.

Wait for the real bluray release of “Fate Stay Night” and stay away from this one. Sentai did not even include a warning on the back cover to state that this is a ‘compression’. Stay away from this dreck.

About this product


TheFate/Stay Nightcontinuity began as a PC game that was adapted to manga, light novels, and an animated TV series. The featureUnlimited Blade Works(2010) is essentially a faster, more violent retelling of the 2005 television series. Every 10 years, seven Magi and their supernatural servants appear and battle for possession of the Holy Grail, which will grant the winner any wish--and ultimate power. High school student Shirou Emiya has always dreamed of becoming a champion of justice, and he gets his chance when he's drawn into the violent conflict between good and evil that surrounds the struggle for the Grail. Shirou immediately forms an alliance with his classmate and fellow Mage Rin Tohasa. He also acquires the services of the beautiful warrior-servant Saber. Director Yuji Yamaguchi uses reverse colors, multiple exposures, fast cutting, and a raft of special effects to energize the many bloody duels. But the flashy imagery can't disguise the underdeveloped plot and characters. In 105 minutes, there simply isn't time to explore the characters' personalities and relationships adequately. Shirou and Rin cling to their friendship, while the other characters arbitrarily switch loyalties. (Rated TV 14 V: graphic violence, violence against women, bondage, grotesque imagery, potentially offensive religious imagery)--Charles Solomon
