Fate/Prototype is the original version of what would become Fate/Stay Night; the version of the story which Kinoko Nasu developed as a novel before he and Takeuchi Takashi re-engineered events (and characters) into the published VN.

Several changes can be found between the two; most notably, the original Master-Servant protagonists were not Emiya Shirou and his (female) Saber, but Saijou Ayaka and her (male) Saber:

The release of season 3 of Carnival Phantasm included a 12-minute OVA, which included a sneak peek at what might have been had this version of the Holy Grail War been published; yet a peek is all it is at this point, since Type-Moon have no plans to revisit the topic.

(That said, one could argue that the character design of Gawain as seen in Fate/Extra owes much to this "original" Saber; perhaps other influences will make themselves known in future T-M works?)

They could turn it into a eroge for fujoshi, you know with SaberxGilgamesh:heh:
Type-Moon can expand their female fanbase.

I want more Saver. They should make a parody of 'what if Saber was male' in Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night.

It looks even darker than any of the other Fate series so far.
There would be light moments at somepoint, particularly between Saber and Ayaka. but on suspects some other characters might be fun, but others seem batshit crazy.
And someone seems like a possible yandere for Saber, if I don't mistake that voice tone out of what I think is Aki Toyosaki's voice (Ayaka's crazy sister, Aika)

i just realize that FFF also stands for Final Fantasy Fujoshi :heh:

The weird guy that had a tatoo on his tongue...
Looks like a villain from Kara no Kyoukai.

I could see why they switched Saber's gender. They didn't want to make Fate seem like an otome game.

When I first read about it, I thought it was just Fate Stay Night but with switched-genders. I am pleasantly surprised to find out that the characters turns out to be different then their Stay Night counterpart.

Seriously needs an anime adaptation :heh: (but no DEEN please!)

The visuals needs overhaul though; it's pretty good for something made five years ago, but you'd expect better these days. The soundtrack could also be better. On the flip side, the seiyuus seem pretty spot-on :). If this really is Gen's new project, I'll be a happy man :D

this isn't a project or anything, just a stand-alone fan-servicey thing...

yes and no

if there is enough buzz generated by this there very well could be a project down the line. otherwise as you said just a fanservicey thing form TM.

I thought the OVA was very interesting, although it kinda confused me at the end when all those characters were talking at the same time. :heh:

That's better done with Fate/Zero.

Fate/Prototype is more otome.

Ithekro 2012-01-04 19:32

We only see four servants, right? Lancer, Saber, Rider, and Archer.
We don't knowingly see Caster, Berserker, or Assassin (though Assassin is likely the same as True Assassin...since that is supposely the rules...but who knows).

Probably the reason why swapped genders for the first Fate game in order to be successful with lots of otaku male audience.

Master_Yoma 2012-01-04 23:04

Male saber seem to have more power the there female saber

I dont think there was Caster, Berserker, or Assassin back in the drawing boards. The ones shown was it and it was expanded to what fate is today later on

Ithekro 2012-01-05 19:56

They have those seven symbols...though I can't guess what it is for.

ReddyRedWolf 2012-01-05 20:42

So basically the female protagonist is a megane Sakura with Rin's background.

I thought Archer was the Gil equivalent then the loli going Saber again and again seemed like a female Gil in Illya's body.

Looks like Prototype's version of command seals.
