From what I understand the release order is Fate/stay night > Fate Zero > Unlimited Blade works.

however with UBW being a remake (once again, I believe. I have seen none) and from what i can tell Fate/stay night (original) is not on crunchyroll...

I would ask a person who has seen the series which one should i watch first.

I know that Zero is a prequel of sorts but i would like to get the story in the order the producers meant for it to be watched.

Thank You.

Hello,

I think you should watch Fate Zero first, and then UBW.

I have heard that Fate/ stay night is not as good as Fate Zero, so I haven´t watched it (stay night),
besides, from what I have read, I would not recommend it.

I hope this helps.

Here this is mostly right (I disagree with the character portrayal part) but it's the most accurate answer you'll get.

I thought the current anime was a remake of the 2006 anime....

Oh well. That's actually even more of an excuse to watch the current anime.

Not sure if I'll have the patience to hold out for all the Heaven's Feel movies before watching Zero, though....

I think it was originally intended to be that way (not sure). But like the link says the new anime covers the Unlimited Blade Works route. Also certain events in the new anime will occur which I believe will be much more impactful on you if you do watch the old anime. But in the end, it's really up to you to decide what you wanna do. (And that goes for when you decide to watch Zero as well).

Yeah, I know. Just because I take advice doesn't mean I'm legally obligated to follow it

Still, it's always helpful to hear other opinions on the matter, and that likely is the route I'll take with watching the series. It'll probably be awhile before I actually start the new anime, so the movies might actually be released by the time I'm ready to move on. :B

Fate/Stay night is not that bad. I watched Fate/ Stay night first, then Fate Zero, and yeah Fate Zero is good. but with UBW, I find it much better than Fate/Stay.

I was wondering which order to watch as well and found this helpful site. It looks like some of it was quoted in a reply in the link posted by dwilson2000. Since this seems to be the source (and claims to be regularly updated) it might be of use to go to it. http://www.reddit.com/r/anime/wiki/seriesfaq-fate

Fate/Staynight and the movie Fate/Staynight Unlimited Bladeworks are on Hulu.

Zero sets up the other two, even though it was the second show. Unlimited Blade Works and Fate are just alternate histories, so ether one could come after Zero. The relationships of the characters in Fate and UBW are different. I would recommend watching both for the comparison.

In my opinion, watch Fate/Stay Night (2006) first, then watch Fate/Zero, and then Fate/Stay Night UBW. True, Fate/Zero comes first in the story, but F/SN 2006 does a much better job of introducing what exactly the Holy Grail War is, while Fate/Zero assumes you've already seen F/SN 2006 and skips a lot of the introduction and skips right to the action.
