Hello everyone, this blog has two binary purposes. One to show off our image galleries and Two, to post a checklist for wiki editors. I am currently cleaning out images for the Fate wiki project. I'm removing Official Art and replacing it with Anime Art that has clear definitions of what goes in there. For more information, please check the Fate/stay Night, Fate/kaleid, and Fate/zero Image Gallery Updates and Wiki Editing 101: Naming Image Galleries and Organizing Images threads.

Thank you.

Fate/stay Night Visual Collection

Some of these cross into Megami's Magazine.

Most of these are from Saber because I haven't started cleaning in the other galleries besides Saber's today.


Fate/stay Night Saber Portraits



I have to add these to Megami gallery.

  • 1st one (Saber without armor) is from Issue 69, Feb 2006
  • 2nd one (Rin and Saber) is from Issue 114
  • 3rd one (Shoujo bread one) is from Issue 71
  • 4th one is from 137


Same for these ones:

  • The Fate Zero one is from Issue 24.

Image Galleries I'm Currently Cleaning


| |

Hello everyone, I'm one of the wiki editors of the Fate wiki project. I have to make an announcement for the image galleries. In case, there are other Fate wiki editors out there. Since I'm the person who writes the wiki archives, it's my job to know as much as I can about our wiki editors and their projects. This is a cooperative wiki editing community. I know all of our wiki editors, solo or team, work together pretty well.

I'll be cleaning the galleries and reorganizing them each day. It's more convenient for me to do huge wiki requests and sweeps in multiple sittings.

Image Galleries

For the images, I'm going to transfer my images in chronological order. The first two were already done by previous wiki editors. I will run a check through for them.

  1. Fate/stay Night original series
  2. Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works film
  3. Fate/zero
  4. Fate/kaleid season 1 and then 2
  5. Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works anime series

In the Wiki Editing 101: Naming Image Galleries and Organizing Images, most wiki projects would use Anime Caps as their main image gallery. However, for extensive wiki projects who has franchises with long episode lists (such as Shonen series) and multiple story arcs and franchises with different anime remakes and spin-offs, it's best to divide the anime caps for the story arcs (for Shonen series) or by series (franchises that have remakes and spin-offs).

I'll make separate image galleries for each anime series. I have worked on Fate/zero, Fate/kaleid, and now FSN UBW anime series wiki projects' episode summaries and dealt with tons of images: deleting dupes and replacing small images.

Profile Portraits

Using Daniel Newton's project, Building a Better Wiki: Perfect Profile Portraits! [+ tutorial], I have to be careful with default images. Various Fate characters appear in main Fate series, Fate/zero series, and the spin-off series. I have to delegate profile portraits.

  • Fate/zero - Any Fate/zero exclusive characters and characters who are of the main cast.
  • Fate/stay Night and UBW - Any Fate/stay night exclusive characters and characters who are of the main cast
  • Fate/kaleid - Fate/kaleid exclusive characters

Exceptions: Gilgamesh, Kirei Kotomine, and Saber These characters appear in both Fate/zero and Fate/stay night routes.

That's all of the announcements in the wiki project for this franchise.

Please let me know if you have any questions or any suggestions.

Thank you.

At an announcement conference in Shinigawa, Tokyo just today, the staff and crew for the upcoming Fate/ Stay Night TV anime at Ufotable revealed their production plans with the popular Type-Moon franchise. Instead of one project, they will be working on two animated projects for the franchise. The TV anime they will be developing will be an all-new adaptation of the Unlimited Blade Works route from the Fate/ Stay Night visual novel that will be made to air for two separate seasons. The first half of the series will premiere on Japanese television on October 4 and the second half will resume things in April 2015.

Unlimited Blade Works is the second route in the Stay Night visual novel game that focuses on Shiro Emiya's interactions with Rin Tohsaka as the two team together to deal with developments in the fifth Holy Grail War where magi can summon the spirits of seven legendary heroes to compete in duels to the death where the winner will be able to make a wish upon the Holy Grail. Unlimited Blade Works was previously adapted into a 90-minute film adaptation by Studio Deen in 2010, where it was later licensed for American video release by Sentai Filmworks. A trailer for the upcoming Unlimited Blade Works TV anime can be seen here:

As for the second animated project...

Ufotable will be adapting the Heaven's Feel route of the Stay Night series into a film adaptation that they are presently in development with. Heaven's Feel is the third route in the visual novel series that had yet to receive an animated adaptation until now. It is the darkest among the three routes of the visual novel as it will focus on Shiro's interactions with Sakura Matou, a girl in his class who has romantic interest in him and regularly deals with an abusive relationship that she has with members of the Matou family that escalates during the events of the Holy Grail War. A trailer for the upcoming Heaven's Feel movie can be seen below:

It looks like ufotable is digging into more work from Type Moon. The studio that made animated adaptations of Fate/ Zero and the Kara no Kyoukai film series will be working on a remake of Fate/ Stay Night that will premiere as a TV anime in the Fall 2014 anime season. Takahiro Miura, the director of the two prior Type-Moon titles adapted, will lead in direction of this new adaptation of Stay Night.

Fate/Stay Night was previously adapted by Studio Deen in a 26-episode TV anime series back in 2006, which was licensed by Geneon in 2006 and then Sentai Filmworks in 2012. The 2006 TV anime was released by Sentai on DVD and Blu-Ray video formats last year.

Both titles are adaptations of Type Moon's popular visual novel game that was originally released in Japan in 2004. The series revolves around a high schooler named Shiro Emiya who becomes entangled in a tournament called the Holy Grail War that involve battles to the death involving the spirits of seven warriors famous from legendary and historical lore.

A trailer for the upcoming remake can be seen here:

Welcome to the 2nd Platonic Harem blog! I dropped the weekly part since I can't do it every week due to school and wiki projects.


For those who haven't tried Fate Stay Night:

It is about a young teenage boy named Shirou whose dream is to become a hero of justice like his late father, Emiya Kiritsugu. When he stumbles upon a fight between two servants and accidentally summons Saber who protects, his life is forever changed. Shirou finds himself fighting against other mages and their servants who are heroes of the past in the Holy Grail War. Whoever wins the Holy Grail has the right to make wish on this holy chalice.

Fate Stay Night is based on the visual novel game that has three routes: Fate, Unlimited Bladeworks, and Heavens Feel. In each route, Shirou is the main character while the female lead changes.

  • Fate: Shirou and Saber
  • UBW: Shirou and Rin Tohsaka
  • Heavens Feel: Shirou and Sakura Matou

What is a Platonic Harem?

I use Platonic to refer to harems where you have a group of girls or guys that can form a relationship with the opposite sex. However, unlike traditional harems, there could only be one relationship at a time. Platonic means every day.


Beware of spoilers!

Shirou Emiya
Shirou Emiya
Shirou Emiya is our male lead with a strong sense of justice. In Fate Stay Night, he is known for his quote: People die when they're killed. He's not a gifted mage since he knows reinforce and trace on. His partner is Saber for all routes. From a weak mage, Shirou quickly becomes strong and capable of holding himself up.

In all of the routes of Fate Stay Night visual novel, he can form a relationship with one girl at a time. Since Fate Stay Night visual novel is an eroge, the relationship becomes very intimate and deep for each girl.
Saber is a beautiful knight who is the female version of King Arthur, and she is the Saber class which is known for their high offensive and balance stats. Like Shirou, she follows a code of honor. In the Fate route and Fate Stay Night anime, Shirou and Saber are partners whose relationship blossoms into love. Due to censorship, their intimacy is concealed. To see the truth, check out the Implied Sex Scene.
Rin Tohsaka
Rin Tohsaka
She's an bright, gifted mage whose partner is Archer. Rin helps Shirou learn how to use magic and the rules of the Holy Grail, and she becomes his ally. In the Unlimited Blade Works movie and route of the same name, Rin and Shirou can share a special relationship. Though, Shirou has to break through Rin's Tsundere barrier to get to know Rin up close and personal. Their romance becomes more interwined when Shirou learns who he is and Rin bonds with both Archer and Shirou.
Sakura Matou
Sakura Matou
Sakura is Shirou's shy classmate who has a crush on Shirou. Her role varies in the 3 Fate Routes. Sakura has the potential to become a great mage, but other masters try to use her for their personal gains. There is no anime or manga series that is exclusive to the Heavens Feel route, the route for Shirou and Sakura's romantic relationship.
Illyasviel von Einzbern is mage from the north who looks sweet and innocent, but she is quite sadistic. For some odd reason, she has a thing for Shirou. There is no route or anime for Illyasviel's relationship with Shirou. One can only imagine a loli-esque relationship.


Fate Stay Night Female Leads
Fate Stay Night Female Leads

Fate Stay Night is a strong example of platonic harem since Shirou can only form one relationship at a time. Each route in the visual novel is dedicated to that. Only two relationships have appeared in the anime world, Fate Stay Night and Unlimited Blade Works movie. Both of them do a great job in revealing the inner works of Shirou's relationships.

I enjoyed the Fate Stay Night series and its prequel, Fate Zero. It's a series that focuses on magic and the Holy Grail, but underneath it lies some good romance stories.

Question: Which relationship you guys and gals loved the most?

I haven't play the visual novel, so I don't know much about Sakura Matou's relationship with Shirou. If I make a mistake, please feel free to correct me.
