Note: The summary below reveals spoilers about the Fate/stay night story. Highlight to read.

[The story of the film will revolve around Sakura Matō, the younger sister by blood to Rin Tohsaka, but when she was young, Sakura was sent to the Matō household as an adopted daughter. There, she was given torturous training in order to give her powerful magic powers. Sakura was not supposed to enter the Holy Grail War, but due to her getting into a romantic relationship with Shirō, the passion hidden within herself and her mental restraints go berserk. Sakura becomes a large game-changer in the Holy Grail War, and forces Shirō to walk toward a cruel fate.]

The TV anime adaptation of Fate/stay night's 'Unlimited Blade Works' route will premiere in Japan on October 4.
