Fate/Prototype Shows The Original Story

Dec 29, 2011 @ 8:51 CST


Paired with Carnival Phantasm’s recently unleashed third Blu-ray volume, Type-Moon has included “Fate/Prototype” – a short 12 minute animation which shows part of the original story of Fate/Stay Night.

As mentioned before, Fate/Stay Night was initially a drastically different tale:

Before Saber took on the role of beautiful female warrior which we know, “Saver” was originally a man – and seifuku wearing school girl, Ayaka, was set to play the role of main character in place of Emiya.

That detail of gender is enough to alter the entire series – no matter, Type-Moon has, for sake of novelty if nothing else, animated what the first 12 minutes of the forerunner would have been like if it were ever made into an anime and dubbed it “Fate/Prototype”.

Of the many variances, one of the more striking features of this work is that it seems to be more graphic and quite sadistic, considering the blonde haired male yandere face and female playing with guts, compared to the first 12 minutes of the Fate/Stay Night we know. Not to mention the obvious discrepancy of “Saver”, the archetype of Saber, appearing to basically be no more than Gilgamesh with a messier hairstyle.

As for our megane wearing protagonist never made to be, Ayaka Sajyou, her character’s design seems to be something more akin to another Type-Moon work, Kara no Kyoukai, rather than the Fate series. In fact, taking into account how distinctive all the characters of the Fate series are, an average seifuku sporting bishoujo with megane and straight hair is just downright unfitting for the Fate universe.

  • It’s called a Prototype for a reason, indeed.

    So the original Saber looks more as though he could have been Gilgamesh’s brother and Shirou’s original… er, well let’s leave it as being inappropriate in accordance with the Fate series we all know and adore.

    Let us but take a moment to sigh in relief that this stayed in the prototype stage where it belonged.

    Considering Sabers identity it fits well but still, lol.

    I for one, loved this darker and more badass version (in my opinion)… wish they could somehow expand the story, I wanna know how brutal they could get…

      LOL, hahahaha. The maker wrote a good deal of the novel in highschool, I wonder if he’d release what he wrote and have fans finish the story up.. Like Katawa Shoujo style.
