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.
- You Never Suspect the Valkyrie
I am a little surprised I did not hear anything about Planet:Valkyrie until now. It has the director of Fate/Zero, Ei Aoki working on it as well as Takashi Takeuchi doing the original character designs. I can’t guarantee this show will be any good but I am certainly going to check it out.
- Did You Fly to Japan to Watch Garden of Sinners?
Neither did I. So we will both have to just deal with a translation of the Movie Pamphlet Q&A.
- Oddly Enough No Saber Figures
Good Smile just released their list of their best-selling figures of 2013. Unsurprisingly there is a metric ton of Hatsune Miku on the list. But one Type-Moon gal makes it on the list as well.
- Saber is Coming Back from Avalon
Ufotable released there first major trailer for the new Fate/Stay Night anime. It looks more and more like the are doing Heaven’s Feel. The real question is are they animating any of the other paths as well.
- Is Maaya Sakamoto an Official Type-Moon Staff Member Yet?
Seeing how much she works on Type-Moon projects it sure seems that way. Unsurprisingly she is doing the opening to Sekai Seifuku ~ Bouryaku no Zvezda.
- Hope Springs Eternal
This is mostly an interview with Aksys Games on what they are doing with Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God. At the end the topic of Fate/Extra CCC comes up. There answer is non-committal but does gives some hope for a localization. Thanks to matty_125 for pointing that out to me.
- Will Anything be as Iconic as the Scarf of the 4th Doctor?
It is time to upgrade Wensleydale_ from cub reporter to full reporter. Thanks to her I now know that plusone Inc. will be selling Heroine X scarves soon. Excellent. Most excellent.
