I thought they said earlier that the new anime series was going to be a new original storyline? I find this news somewhat disappointing.

Yeah, I was kind of hoping for a direct sequel to Fate/Zero thematically, taking key elements from various parts of the separate routes.

I'm sure it'll be good however it pans out.

Correct my if I am wrong, but ufotable is making a TV adaption for the Unlimited Bladworks route as well as a movie adaption for the Heaven's Feel route?

It's not Heaven's Feel, but I'll take it. I thought the movie take on UBW was a waste of time since I'm normally not the biggest fan of anime movies that are a compilation of more expansive source material.

Of course, they haven't reported on the best news from yesterday yet. I'm not saying what that is cause I'm in a pool on how long it takes for ANN to notice.

Well, I think the movie was fine, but I guess I'm not opposed to it getting an unabridged version. At least Lancer will get more time to be awesome.

The more important news is that they're finally doing Heaven's Feel, though hopefully it'll be a movie series like Kara no Kyoukai. That route definitely can't be done justice in one film.

The movie wasn't fine if you weren't already familiar with the actual order of scenes and their meaning. Otherwise it's a jumbled mess of disconnected happenings, a compilation movie for a TV series that didn't exist.

As a person who hasn't watched the first Fate/Stay Night anime nor the Unlimited Bladeworks movie(basically the only Fate I've seen is Fate/Zero), should I watch the Deens Fate/Stay Night before this?

Awesome, my favorite arc in a fully realized TV series. Still I wouldn't mind seeing a series detailing the life of Shirou as it originally unfolded(as described by Archer) even more so.

Probably. Fate/Stay Night is one of those works where you need to go through all 3 routes in order to get the entire picture.

Watching the Deen TV anime adaptation of Stay Night should be okay. Just note that the anime does attempt to spin in some events exclusive to the anime that incorporate story elements from the two other routes of the visual novel.

Well I'd assume Aniplex will be picking this as well as the Heaven's Feel movie(s?) up, so Kari Wahlgren ought to be reprising the role.
