    Bit Rushed but a FANTASTIC start
    Short Review - Feels like a preview but still amazing

    In-Depth - Fate Grand Order is a pretty great and hopefully gets a full series. The visuals were beautiful and the action was done fantastically.

    The characters are fairly average but still emotionally relatable allowing you to feel for the characters. Although the special doesn't go into the backgrounds of our characters it leaves ...

    A disappointing installment in the Fate franchise
    If you've enjoyed previous works in the Fate universe for their complex characterization and interesting mythology, I can't recommend this one. Bland, stereotypical characters, plot holes, and the inevitable awkwardness of game storyline adaptation. I'm frankly astonished at the number of positive reviews.

    It's better than people are saying, though not as good as the usual Fate shows
    Although this film is admittedly not better than Fate shows like UBW, Zero, Kaleid, and the like, it's still far better than what's worth 1-3 stars. The animation is pretty on point, the designs are (largely) fine, the writing is decent enough, and the characters are likeable. It's not a 5 star for a couple reasons, a large one being because the final battle was a bit of a let down as far as Fate ...

    The Worst of the Worst
    Did you like Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero? Me too. This movie helpfully brings back the idea of masters and servants, including an appearance from Saber. However, that's where the similarities end. This movie feels like bad fan fiction, with completely uninteresting main characters, an utterly useless protagonist, a plot that makes no sense (even by anime standards), and a complete wrecking of ...

    A sputtering movie with splutterings of good fights
    The overall gist of this 70 minute slog is that it is poorly paced. It takes us 20 minutes for anything to happen and then the plot "actually" starts. Because of how much the writers couldn't wield the exposition in any sort of graceful way it just is dreadfully slow.

    At the very least the writer has a solid grasp on foreshadowing just not exposition.

    In the end there was really only sort of ...

    Loved it! Cant wait for more episodes
    Awesome to get more story to my favorite series, really liked Mash in terms of character design, hopefully they bring back gilgamesh in some way. The main character is gonna need some more development, he was pretty meh but I think hell be cool. Cant wait for more!

    A good additon to the Fate franchise
    I am personally a big fan of the fate franchise, having watched near everything, so I was really hyped for this special, but in the end, I was a bit disappointed.

    The story is good, but very uncomplet for the moment, but it will probably have sequel to make up for this , hopefully a serie. The characters generally didn't stand out, some of them are likable, while others (the main character) ...

    Just a FYI, there is only 1 EP
    So... As the title says, there is only 1 Ep (and it is 72hrs). This is basically the tutorial story for the Fate/Grand Order game, so basically it ends at a cliff hanger that falls into an endless pit. Story wise, it is good enough, with some plot holes here and there. Combat Scenes are quite good, not as well as Fate/Stay Night, but good enough. Overall, the whole anime is a good enough... While ...

    Show is a good starting point, mobile app game goes more in depth, overall pretty good
    Though this show was not as polished as other fate shows, this anime does a good job with explaining the world and how it ties in to the fate universe. Lots of Easter eggs in this show and the fight scenes were done well in my opinion. Good starting point for the rest of the series. Play the mobile app game if you want more info and detail about what is happening for this anime.

    Fate series with a twist
    I was very much looking forward to this and I have to say I was not disappointed. It felt like there was a lot left on the cutting room floor, but it was still a lot of fun and I can't wait to see more! It was interesting to see the Fate universe expanded in this way. I wasn't sure about the characters in the beginning, but they won me over mid-way through.
