I'd kind of like to see how they'd do Hollow/Ataraxia , just to see how'd they'd handle the repeating 4 days that happen in the game.


I'd love to see Avenger and Bazett in action, too. I think the best part of HA is the chill, slice-of-life feeling it all has.


Same, I guess they'd only do the time loop though, they probably wouldn't adapt much of the slice-of-life stuff. I'm not really sure how that would work, but I guess they must have some idea because spokespeople have said before they'd definitely adapt it if UBW sold enough, so they must have given it some thought. I imagine it'll get adapted at some point, considering how big the Fate franchise is in Japan.

The spinoffs can be read in any order.

Yeah I totally agree with this, reading the VN should theoretically take precedence (or you can watch a playthrough on youtube, there is a guy who has done no-commentary playthroughs of all three routes). If you can't be bothered to find the VN or watch a playthrough of it, I would watch Fate/Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works (the 2014-2015 series by ufotable) and then Fate/Zero. A lot of people say to watch Zero first, but it is intended to be watched as a prequel, and as such doesn't explain stuff as much (also obviously has some pretty big spoilers for FSN). If you do read the VN first, you can watch the anime series in any order.

Saemonza already touched on this, but this is a 'brief' rundown of the rest of the Fate franchise besides what I've just mentioned (putting in spoiler tags because it's pretty lengthy, anyone feel free to correct any of this if it's wrong also because I haven't read/played most of them)

Just give me more information on the Heaven's Feel adaptation. That's all I really care about atm, but more Fate is always a good thing.

I wouldn't mind that.



Ya DO NOT watch Fate/Zero first.

So there is a VN as well. @_@



The visual novel came first, with three possible routes. The Zero light novels were written afterwards.

Later, DEEN adapted one route of the visual novel into a butchered mess that a majority of fans dislike. That's the first anime series. They then adapted the second route, Unlimited Blade Works, into a movie which is also mainly disliked. Ufotable adapted the Zero novels, and they just finished releasing their version of UBW, the most recent anime series. They're working on the final route of the VN now.

The best course of action with Fate is to read the VN first, since it does a much better job of portraying the characters than anime can. The Zero series (anime or novels) comes next, as it's a prequel that assumes you've read Stay Night.

The spinoffs can be read in any order.

feel like such an outlier because I actually liked the DEEN FSN TV series... sure, it was a little bit of a mess, and they should've remained true to the Fate route instead of aiming for a weird amalgamation, but eh.. it was still enjoyable. it also gave us GARcher.

UBW movie was a true pile of shit, though

Hey, we're all allowed to have opinions here. The VN kind of plagued my mind because I watched the first 9 episodes before reading the VN, then I played the VN, went back to it, and I was like "what?"

Much like Ufotable's UBW anime: fine as a stand alone anime, failure as an adaptation. Seriously these adaptations rely entirely on how Shirou is depicted. If you don't get Shirou right, then the whole thing falls apart.

You know what? I respect it.

I usually get a lot people who adore Rin. After that it's Saber. Not enough Sakura lovers, which is interesting given that her backstory and characterization is very dark and good.

I agree, I love Sakura, I have her equal to Rin. They're both equally great, just in different ways in my opinion. It's just because there's been no anime adaptations of Heaven's Feel so no one really rallies behind her except for VN fans because anime-only people have no idea of the amazing characterization she gets in Heaven's Feel.
