Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: Mysterious Caster X

This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

  • Love Letter from China
    With the Chinese release of Fate/Grand Order there as the additional gift of some hot cosplaying guys for the adverting of the game. The ladies of Type-Moon fandom are finally given some love.
  • Night at the Museum 
    With the Japanese release of Fate/Extella around the corner big events like this Fate/EXTELLA MUSEUM are surely going to pop up. Of course, the are also selling a bunch of exclusive merchandise at this event as well.
  • Number 81
    For the 20th Anniversary Issue of TECH GIAN, it seems that Takeuchi drew a Bunny Girl Saber. I guess the only remaining question is when will she be added to Fate/Grand Order.
  • Is Everyone in Japan Dying?
    A sad little not that Eir Aoi is going on indefinite hiatus due to poor health.
  • Clearly the Reason the Character Was Gender Swapped
    Lou Zhenhua from Chaos Dragon gets a figure via Good Smile with a rather impressive base.
  • Unshielded Shielder 
    The new Matthew Kyrielite Craft Essence has sparked a lot of fan art for insanely obvious reasons.
  • A LOT of Fanart
    Seriously. And of course, someone threw Olga Marie into the outfit as well.
  • Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
    Both Red and Blue Saber get to show off their fancy dress in the newest Fate/Extella video.

    A little look into the difficulty scaling options in Fate/Extella.

    Japan is getting some gorgeous Special Edition versions of the PS4 and Vita systems for the release of Fate/Extella.

    The Race Track Saber made for the Ferrari Itasha is getting her own figure. 
  • The Best for Last
    Fate/Extella saved the Saber gameplay footage for the last reveal.
  • It Seemed to Good to be True
    I was always a little suspicious of a simultaneous Japanese and American release of Fate/Extella. The English release has been moved to early 2017.
  • And Some Good News
    But in return for the delay, there will also be special edition version of Fate/Extella in America.

    Fate/Empire of Dirt looks like an amazing doujin game.

    Someone made a neat little chart of all of Shiro’s looks over the years.

    Some summaries of the chats about Fate/Grand order at  this year’s Machi Asobi.

  • This is Just for Me
    If nothing else my roommate also really likes it.

S.W.A.T. Reviews: Summer 2015 Pt. 1

Follow us directlyon Stitcher, or on iTunes

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful.

These are the first batch from the new season and now we’ve broken them into (helpful?) categories:
