An anime film adaptation is in the works for Mahoutsukai no Yoru -Witch on the Holy Night- at Ufotable. Mahoutsukai no Yoru was originally written in 1996 and laid the groundwork for what fans dubbed the Nasuverse. The Nasuverse includes other popular works written by Kinoko Nasu such as Fate/stay night, Tsukihime, and Kara no Kyoukai. The story was eventually released in visual novel format on April 12, 2012. It featured illustrations by Hirokazu Koyama.
Ufotable has adapted other notable TYPE-MOON works into anime such as Kara no Kyoukai, Fate/Zero, and two routes (Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven’s Feel) from Fate/stay night.

A description of Mahoutsukai no Yoru is provided by VNDB and is as follows:
“Near the end of the Showa Era. (Late 1980s)
In the old mansion rumored that a witch lives, Aoko Aozaki who just started learning sorcery and her teacher, a young mage Alice Kuonji, lived together.
But as if he was guided by an invisible string of fate, a young boy called Soujuurou Shizuki joins them and a strange communal life begins…”
“Late 1980s. The golden age full of brightness and spirits. The boy who came to the urban city passes by the two witches who live in the present”
“The boy lived a really normal life
She lived with pride and confidence
The girl lived hidden as if she’s asleep”
