The order to watch the Fate Series?
Posted 11/30/15
I wanna know where I should start. I'm kinda confused because there's Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. I'm assuming I should start with Fate/Zero, but I may be wrong...

Or does it even matter where I start?

Each installment of Fate follows a separate arc of the visual novel (Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel). Fate/stay night is the anime adaptation of the Fate route, Unlimited Blade Works is the anime adaptation of Unlimited Blade Works (duh), and Heaven's Feel is an adaptation of Heaven's Feel (again, duh). Heaven's Feel, however, is different from the others. As far as I'm aware, the only adaptation of it is a two hour OVA, and I don't think that it's currently licensed by anyone.

Overall, it doesn't matter what order you watch the arcs in. Just go for the one that's most accessible to you or flip a coin. Fate/Zero, however, is a prequel to all of them. Thereby, I'd suggest watching it first.

In summary...
Fate/Zero -----> Fate/UBW/Heaven's Feel

Fate/Zero then Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV).

I've heard DEEN's Fate/Stay Night is pretty terrible and should be avoided.
