I hope I am not repeating someone else's post that I just didn't see or anything, but I want to start watching this series after multiple people suggesting them to me. I am just not sure which I should start with. I was thinking Fate/Stay night since that is what most other people probably saw first and I get a similar experience.

Just trying to get some personal feelings and ideas between these from those who have seen them.

Thanks in advance.

Fate Zero is a prequel.

Depending on who you ask, you may get a different answer...

However I would recommend Fate;Zero first. Its nice to have the background information as it helps in flushing out all of the lore alot better than it would if you watched it afterwards.

Oh my god, you have no idea what a dangerous question that is. We have quite the dedicated Type-Moon fanbase here on CR, so something like the suggestion to start with Fate/Zero or saying that Fate/stay night has its boring parts can easily get you run over by a rather large hate train. I however do remember that one of the more informed fans made a very long post about this topic once, which I personally liked a lot, I however do not have that at hand right now and I do not have the time to write an essay about this issue right now, so this is the gist of it:

Watch Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014) Episode 0
Watch Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014)
Read the Visual Novel OR wait for Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel (movie) to come out
(Watch the Heaven's Feel movie)
Watch Fate/Zero
Read/play/watch the rest of it

Edit: Hey, I found it.

not a chance buddy

I dare say there is not a single Fate series related thread in which this has not been asked and debated--but many of those threads are also strewn with spoiler land mines and side conversations, so asking in a separate thread is pretty understandable and sensible. However, I have moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum where threads asking for such advice is more appropriate-- even though it's probably been asked here before too.

As a general rule I always prefer watching shows in the order they were aired rather than chronological based on story so that's my two cents about this.

Fate/Zero Honestly It feels alot more complete than Fate/Zero and does a better job explaining the setting.
