Studio Ufotable recently hit their 20th anniversary, which they celebrated with their most successful title to date. Their history up till this point has been marked by consistent ideology, but they’ve still gone through very distinct eras—including some of the craziest experimentation seen in commercial Japanese animation. Theirs is a tale of wild but meticulous growth.
With Re:Zero season 2 right around the corner, it’s time for a lengthy look back at the team and circumstances that made the original such a successful adaptation, as well as their evolution over time and what that means for this sequel’s production.
The first Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel movie has finally been released in bluray in Japan alongside some very juicy animation materials, so the time is right to tackle the outrageous production of this movie and talk about the staff that studio ufotable has managed to assemble.
