It was only 2 days ago that I learned about the first volume release of this cancelled-game-turned-light-novel by Type-Moon. I managed to read the English translation with lots of thanks to the folks over at Baka-Tsuki. To my ‘slight’ surprise, it immediately delves on darker themes and I felt a very heavy atmosphere on the first few paragraphs. Well, even until the end actually. But it’s an intriguing-dark kind of way, you know what I mean? I just can’t wait to get this turned into anime!
I can’t review it really right now because there’s only this one volume that’s released, so we’ll have to stick around some more and see where this goes. The list of servants, however, have been announced. There will be 14 of them this time around, 7 from one faction and the rest to another faction. You can check here the full list of the servants and if the images aren’t exciting enough, I’m pretty sure their skills and even Noble Phantasms do! I mean just look at this Shakespeare and Frankenstein!
Looking forward to Volume II then! Give me a holler when it’s out, will ya?! 🙂
