Type-Moon is a label of the Notes company, but began in 1999 as an independent dōjin novel and game circle with writer Kinoko Nasu and artist Takashi Takeuchi. The pair went on to develop the Tsukihime visual novel, as well as the Fate/stay night visual novel. Both have inspired multiple spinoffs in manga, novels, anime, games, and other mediums. The pair are also notable for The Garden of Sinners novel, published before Type-Moon's founding, and inspiring a series of anime films of the same name. Most of Type-Moon's works are notable for being loosely connected, and implying a shared universe and cosmology that English-speaking fans have unofficially dubbed the "Nasuverse."
On January 30, 2004, Type-Moon and Kinoko Nasu's Fate/stay night visual novel was released, spawning what would become a huge multimedia franchise. The original story of Shirō Emiya and Saber and their quest to survive the Holy Grail War has inspired prequels, magical girl spin-offs, alternate timelines, and a highly successful mobile game.
