In January of 2006, Studio Deen animated an adaptation of Type-Moon's first commercial work, Fate/stay Night, based on the Fate scenario.
In January 2010, Studio Deen produced a Fate/stay Night Movie, based on the Unlimited Blade Works route.
In October 2011, an adaptation of Fate/Zero (the prequel to Fate/stay night) aired, produced by Ufotable.
Now, three years later, Ufotable announced another anime adaptation of Fate/stay Night. Scheduled to air in October 2014, the storyline will have original content scripted by Kinoko Nasu. Ufotable has said that they plan to “properly write Shirou Emiya as a protagonist”. they’re attempting to create their adaptation of Fate/Stay Night independently of Fate/Zero, since Zero was able to be what it is using the original Fate/Stay Night game as a foundation. Following AnimeJapan 2014, a new site for the upcoming anime has presented the latest visual. According to the site, the cast so far remains unchanged from Studio Deen's version:
- Noriaki Sugiyama as Shirou Emiya
- Ayako Kawasumi as Saber
- Kana Ueda as Rin Tohsaka
- Junichi Suwabe as Archer
- Noriko Shitaya as Sakura Matou
- Mai Kadowaki as Illyasviel von Einzbern
- Nobutoshi Canna as Lancer
- Miki Itou as Taiga Fujimura
- Jouji Nakata as Kirei Kotomine
- Rikiya Koyama as Kiritsugu Emiya
Takahiro Miura (Kara no Kyoukai 6: Boukyaku Rokuon, Fate/Zero) is on board as Director, and the character designers include Tomonori Sudo (Kara no Kyoukai, Fate/Zero, Coyote Ragtime Show), Hisayuki Tabata (Yuyushiki), and Atsushi Ikariya (Fate/Zero, Devil is a Part Timer). From what I've seen it looks pretty good so far, with some characters getting new outfits. Personally, I want to see a Heaven's Feel adaptation in the same vein as Fate/Zero.

So what do you guys think? Looking forward to the anime? And which route do you think Type-Moon will go?
