Let me see if I can clear up some of the confusion.

The Fate/stay animes are adaptations of the Fate/stay night visual novel. The VN has three routes that have the same start point, but based on the players choices can go to one of three completely different endings. Because of this there is no must start here point for the franchise. The 2006 Fate/stay night was based on the Fate route which is the most likely (but not guaranteed) to be the first route played. UBW is the second most likely route to route to be played. So, in all honesty, most recommendations on were to start is more of a personal opinion and/or obsession then fact.

What it boils down to is, UBW is just as good a place to start as any other. If you have already started watching, that's fine. Just keep watching and enjoy.



About some of the other shows:

Fate/stay night (2006) - This show was not the best adaptation and has not aged well since then. In can still be an interesting watch but not the best the franchise has to offer.

Fate/stay night UBW (movie) - The movie covers the same story as the UBW TV show but in a massively condensed form. To fit it in the time frame it focuses on some big fights and big reveals but cuts out any explanation about what is going on. This results in a confused spoiler filled mess. It might be of interest if you want to compare how certain fights were handled but otherwise not necessary to watch.

Fate/zero - Prequel to the Fate /stay night shows. Has a big info dump in the first episode, but does not explain everything. For some of the plot threads its best to watch one of the Fate shows first so as to avoid confusion.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya - This show takes place in an alternant reality in which the events of Fate/zero did not occur. Watching UBW and Fate/zero are not necessary to enjoy the show but you would get more out of it if you did.

Fate/Prototype - This is a stand alone OVA that shows what Fate/stay night might have been like if they had used their original story idea instead. Interesting but not necessary.




Thank you for the detailed information sir. So the third route you are saying is the sakura's route that will be aired this 2017 right? Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel? or the grand order?

If it helps at all, I watched Fate Zero first, then Unlimited Blade Works, then the 2006 FSN. FSN is an alternate setting according to myanimelist. Carnival Phantasm is just a little fun thing mixing Ufotable's characters from their different works together, the Illya things is a spin off, and Grand Order special is also an alternate thing to FSN UBW.
