  • Bwalalalala . Iskandar!
    I have to say this anime took me by surprise. The animation was top notch, the soundtrack was awe inspiring (watch this on a surround setup, you won't regret it) and the story was amazing. Like many here I cried, I laughed, I jumped out of my seat. The story isn't afraid to be violent when it needs to be cruel but never unnecessarily. It was so good I had no idea it was a prequel. I felt it was a ...

    Slightly Overrated But Not to be Missed!
    Definitely one of the best animes out there and one of the best I've seen in awhile! However, it isn't without its shortcomings! I love a good story, and in order for the story to be driven, there must be talking between characters. However, Fate Zero kind of overkills the talking in some of the episodes. The first one is a notable example. But, onto my rating!

    Story (8/10)

    Excellent story. ...

    A must see for everyone. I am never concerned with writing reviews but the sheer magnitude of this anime is much deserving. the characters are constructed to perfection, and the visuals have yet to be beaten.

    Dark, gloomy, and unforgiving—exactly what completes Fate Zero.
    Don't let the cover fool you! This isn't your happy-go-lucky anime. It's unforgiving and mercilessly true to the reality of consequences of an action. Gin Urobuchi understand very well what Fate Zero's characters are facing—a life or death scenario. Unlike Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the suffering of the characters are brought upon by their own actions rather than what the writer has created. ...

  • Best Fate adaptation to date
    Personally, I've always loved the "Unlimited Blade Works" scenario in the Fate story as the best. However, this anime has everything that makes not just a great anime, but also an amazing story.
    Other than the stunning visuals, amazing presentation, breathtaking choreography and set pieces, and deep and emotional plot, the best part about this series are the characters. The heroic spirits, in ...

  • A prequel that trumps the original.
    I liked Fate/Stay Night I really did but I found it missing something. I couldn't really pinpoint exactly what it was until I watched it's prequel Fate/Zero. Fate Zero is full with such deep and memorable characters that you'll wish that holy grail never ended. The character aspect is what I found lacking in Fate/Stay Night. In Fate/Zero, however, the human element is it's greatest achievement. ...

    Fate/Zero is fantastic
    Fate/Zero is a prequel to Fate/Stay Night which takes place 10 years before the events of F/SN. To be honest I didn't like F/SN all that much but to my surprise, F/Z hooked me like few animes have.

    Fate/Zero mainly follows Kiritsugu Emiya and Saber, but it also focuses on the other characters and gives them enough screen time for you to grow to know all of their motivations and even sympathize ...

    An Outstanding Character Study
    Fate/Zero lacks the considerable action of FateStayNight, and instead decides to delve deeper into the machinations of the characters involved in the conquest for the grail. This is a much slower, more nuanced story than the one told in FateStayNight, and while not everyone will be able to tolerate the pace, I think it leads to a much more emotionally involved experience. You get to learn so much ...

  • Fantastic yet too short.
    Very beautiful art and character development, but the overall story left me unsatisfied. It simply wasn't clear why what happens happens despite knowing the following history.

    The story takes 7 heroes and gives them 7 legendary heros throughout history; with their one on one bonds, they compete against each other for a Grail which gives one wish.

    So the viewer is taken through a journey to ...

    Beautiful Animation - Brutal and Honest Story
    When I first heard about this series (a prequel to Fate/Stay Night), I was only slightly curious. I was not a big fan of FSN nor have I played any of the games. The first thing that immediately impressed me when I started watching the first episode was the animation and the music, both of which are nearly always great, and at certain times jaw-dropping.

    The story itself seems like typical ...
