    Very meta. I suggest you rather read Forest or Kusarihime to get better perspective about Meteor's writing. Enough to say that Kusarihime influenced several authors uncluding Nasu, Urobuchi or Tanaka.

    Premise sounds wholly uninteresting to me, and kind of dumb. Everyone has their own servant now? Ugh...Oh well, if it's going to be a light novel, then it's not of interest to me anyway. If it gets adapted to a manga and/or anime someday, then we'll see...

    It's vaguely interesting that it's the reverse of F/GO, in that now everyone has one Servant, whereas in F/GO one person (at least initially) had all the Servants.

    I liked Fire Girl so I'll probably take the plunge and buy the first volume.

    Joke aside, I'm not too excited about this. With that being said, I won't judge it just base on the premise and if it turn out to be amazing then good.

    I find it funny that some ppl already saying this is just a set up for more FGO cuz Sion's definitelynotCaptainNemo fused with Little Prince, so this will give lore on prince in prepare for FGO. Other comments including alien stuffs. Gotta love the fandom these days where most speculations just go back to be about FGO future stories lol.

    I don't have a strong opinion one way or another, essentially:
    Positives
    - first legit fate work with a female master as the mc. Prototype, it's sequel and strange fake don't really count as the first doesn't really exist, and the latter two are more of an ensemble cast.

    - art looks really nice.

    - premise doesn't seem to be focused on a Grail war as 'everyome has a grail' so I'm curious on where the story will go

    - new servant is a shota and it's been a while since we've had any of those in and out of grandorder so that's a plus.

    Negatives

    - plot sounds a bit weird honestly. Even if the Grail wars tend to go wild, they're usually always there so the possibility of it not happening feels strange. I also question the decision of giving everyone in the world a Grail.

    - gender ratio from the cover is WAY too uneven. Even the existence of one more male supporting cast would have eased my worries, I'm not overly fond of stories were the cast tips too much in one favour these days honestly

    It doesn't really look like or sound like it's my sort of thing. And it's not like I could read it either.

    Considering that main servant is most likely Little Prince, I would expect very melancholic atmosphere from Meteor. Most likely something between Saint-Exupéry style and this:

    As usually, from Meteor, expect a lot of meta narrative, or at least a lot of stuff with ambiguous meaning. He had a lot of this even in Zvezda.

    Why do they force themselves to name almost everything they do Fate? I think it should have been named differently, I don't feel like servants and holy grail should always be tied to this name, but maybe there is a reason, I don't know. That's my first impression reading the synopsys, it feels weird and distant from the usual setting (the latter not being a bad thing) but still I can't wait to see what it's going to really be (though I can't read japanese so I'll have to wait longer...).

    They are Personas. And all you need to do is implement that fusion system and we go full SMT.

    *Googles Zvezda*

    ...yeah, I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about this story at the end of it. Though that song you linked is nice, where's it from?

    So it's basically Fate/Devil Survivor... I am okay with this.

    Case Files isnt called Fate.

    In any case this series will deal with an after math of a HGW so that definitely seems like its Fate linked
