Creator / Ufotable

ufotable is a Japanese animation studio first established in 2000 by employees of TMS Entertainment. The studio was relatively obscure due to the nature of their work until 2008, when their big break came through in the form of the popular anime adaptation of Kara no Kyoukai. Three years later, the studio once again entered the limelight for the polished quality of Fate/Zero, and then again in 2014 for Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works].

Sadly not a a Table made out of a UFO, though the studio's namesake is a table that looks like a UFO that the founders wanted (which they now have and bring around to conventions).

  • Animation Bump
  • all lowercase letters: Their name is not capitalized.
  • Conspicuous CG: Provided this for Sonic X and Gundam SEED. Also present in their other shows, to the point where the next episode previews for Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works consist of nothing but a sequence with photo-realistic glass objects and voiceovers.
