  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: The essential root problem of why so many works have fallen into Development Hell, due to how Type-Moon is a small company and Nasu supervising or writing for several projects at a time (2012-2013 was the peak as he was implied to be involved at various points to be working on Mahoyo, the Tsukihime remake, Fate/Extra CCC, Fate/Extella, Fate/Grand Order, and various ufotable anime adaptations all within the span of two years), various projects like Tsukihime's remake got put on pause to focus on others as a result of there being so many things in the queue to work on.
  • Production Posse:
  • Reclusive Artist:
    • Kinoko Nasu is a case where he's much comfortable with written discussion only in a controlled environment, having used his long-running blog of the 90s and magazine interviews as his main avenue for communicating with fans. He only represents himself with the Author Avatar of a mushroom (a pun on his first name being also read as "mushroom") and only one known photo of him is of the back of his head. He's not going to drop the anonymity any time soon, as he's spoken about how he enjoys being able to go about conventions without anyone paying attention to him.
    • OKSG as one of the main producers for Mahou Tsukai no Hako is even more reclusive, only publicly discussing his relationship with Type-Moon and very little is known about his personal life.
  • Vaporware: Hoo boy. Let's put this in order of what Nasu said is being worked on:
    • Originally, there was going to be a Tsukihime sequel, Tsukihime II: The Dark Six, but those plans fell through. Now, Nasu intends to remake Tsukihime... which has been said to have entered the testing phase as of the year 2018 (six years after it was formally announced). So far, we've gotten character redesigns of the main protagonists, new character Noel, and the new setting in Tokyo, but that's about it. It finally materialized after a decade of waiting, as it was released in summer 2021 on the very last day of 2020, making it Saved from Development Hell.

    • Girls' Work was a visual novel announced alongside the Tsukihime remake and Mahou Tsukai no Yoru to be written by Meteo Hoshizora. Two years later, it was announced to be moving to the medium of anime with ufotable set to animate it. Announcements never manifested after that.
    • Two sequels to Mahou Tsukai no Yoru were announced in 2012, turning it into its own series. The second game is said to be the "earnest" beginning of the series. Progress has not actually started until the Tsukihime remake is finished.
    • In the same article linked above, DDD isn't getting a third volume until after the Mahou Tsukai no Yoru series is completed.
  • What Could Have Been: It was revealed by Kazuya Niino (creator of Etrian Odyssey and Trauma Center) in a January 2020 interview for 4Gamer that Naoki Yoshida of Final Fantasy XIV fame was thinking in 2018 of making a game for Type-Moon. Two years later, it seems it didn't come to anything as Niino ended up taking initiative by forming a game development studio for Type-Moon (presumably Yoshida is still committed to FFXIV for the foreseeable future). Still, one can't help but wonder how a collaboration between Yoshida and Nasu would've turned out.
