What are these? I opened Blades' video, and it's just him posing with his sword like he's a Calvin Klein model. That's not even a real jacket, you can see the back isn't complete when they pan over that area (oops!)

Also, Angela Mei's video is the only one in the set that's 1280x720, the rest are 1920x1080. Why? Also, her video is the most popular at almost 10,000 views. Pretty weird move there, Toei. This is why I tell people that you hate women

Edit: Future proofing this post by linking the individual videos. Here they are in order of popularity:

Reika
Ryouga
Rintarou
Ogami
Kento
Zoous
Ren
Storious
Yuuri
Daishinji
Legeiel

Interesting that Ogami beat Kento and everyone beat Legeil, the two guys I thought who were most handsome in the show.

What in the world are these? The title of Reika's video says "Digital Photo Book Promotion Movie". So what, they're gonna release a digital photo book with Saber's characters now? And why is Touma not here?

It appears that they are indeed releasing a digital photobook. And Touma will be included. My guess is that they're saving his video for closer to release date.

Only watched it for Angela Mei, still hoping to see a main female rider, like a mini series or a one shot, even though Toei seems like it has a grudge against women or something lol!

So is this a digital [photo book], i.e. a digital version of a photo book? Or a [digital photo] book, as in a physical book of digital photos?
That's not even a real jacket, you can see the back isn't complete when they pan over that area (oops!)
If it's any consolation, that actually is a real jacket. It's basically a type of open back blazer, except for men instead of women. It's not something you see a lot of, but this is Toei trying to be fancy.

Those thumbnails confuse me. All the names are in Western order, but then we get "Mei Angela". I thought Angela was her first name, and it was just in Western order already? Or is her name actually "Mei" and "Angela" is her surname? Cause looking it up, it's definitely アンジェラ 芽衣. Did someone on the team just assume アンジェラ was her surname?

Although looking into it further, that's not even her real name, so who even knows.

Angela Mei is actually just a stage name, her real name is Yamamoto Yumi. She's half Spanish Filipina on her mother's side so I suspect it's to capitalize on her foreign appeal. I think the name is supposed to be just a double first name (like Mary Ann or Betty Lou etc) so it should always be Angela Mei and never the reverse.

It's not her real name? :shock:

I've seen "Mei Angela" written in other places too though

Stage names are pretty common in Japan, and it's even possible to register an official alias with the government (because actually changing your name is realllly difficult).

I suspect anywhere it's written "Mei Angela" it's someone who didn't realize that it's not an actual family name.

Okay safe. It took me a while to get it, but I learned a while ago that if an actor has a western sounding name, to just go with their preferred name order.

Also the fact that a western-sounding name for an actress primarily doing work in Japan adds a layer of interest and appeal from an audience perspective.
