ufotable has released a full-length Trailer for their first Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel movie, and the animation looks beautiful. The film will debut in Japanese theatres on October 14. There is currently no news of a screening in the West.
Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel I. presage flower is the first in an upcoming film trilogy based on Type Moon’s visual novel series, Fate/Stay Night. The films follow a separate timeline to the two anime series - Fate/Stay Night & Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works - focusing on the third route in the game involving the pink-haired high schooler, Sakura Matou.
Set ten years after the events of Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel I. presage flower follows teens Sakura, Rin and Shinji during the Holy Grail war; a battle royale involving seven powerful mages and their respective legendary warrior servants. The last surviving competitor is rewarded with the Holy Grail, an item that grants their desired wish. Without spoiling the film’s plot, Heaven’s Feel’s story is darker than the other Stay/Night routes, exploring the horrors Sakura’s faced as a child.
The film is directed by the animation director and character designer of ufotable’s Unlimited Blade Works TV series, Tomonori Sudou (Tales of Zestiria the X, Fate/Zero, The Garden of Sinners). Yuki Kaijura (Sword Art Online, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Erased) composed the music with a theme performed by Aimer.
