    Downton Abbey meets Hogwarts in this Fate/Zero Sequel.
    Prepare for a lecture in this last minute addition to Crunchyroll's roster. The pilot episode is bursting with essay, though somehow manages to include other elements of previous fate series. Swirling plots and dark curses abound in this magic school series.
    Waver Velvet, Iskandar's side kick, returns to teach young mages in this most recent Fate spin off. Teaching includes more than planning ...

    I think it had a pretty promising episode zero
    I never saw this anime coming, so I was pleasantly surprised to see it listed.

    It shows a more well-rounded picture of Adult Waver Velvet (El-Melloi II) that actually corresponds well to the younger man seen in Fate/Zero, but also glimpsed in other works like Apocrypha.

    We also see much more of the Clocktower, where Mages in the Fate universe congregate in a community, and this was something ...

    Promising spin-off. For a fan that is.
    So far so good. This series is not about fate or holy grail war. It's simply a side story about how the world of mages outside of the holy grail war works. Only watch if you're really into type-moon verse in general. Not for casual viewer and certainly not for people who only watch fate/zero and hope this is some more Fate.

    The Nasuverse Essentials Guide
    As always the case, this is a show taking place in the Nasuverse of mages and magic. Old fans of the franchises consisting in it (Fate, Garden of Sinners, Tsukihime, etc.) will undoubtedly enjoy this, but for newer fans or people confused by the complicated world of magic, here is a guide to all the essentials you may hear about without much context.

    Magic: Supernatural occurrences that ...

    Modern Magic and Good, Old-Fashioned Intrigue!
    OK, not being intimately familiar with the larger franchise, I had to make sure when I thought that I recognized this as part of the Fate family. Seems I was correct on that point. But this story, which follows a professor of modern magecraft as he navigates the duties and treachery of the Clock Tower, stands firmly on its own. The artwork is beautiful, the characterization is quietly ...

    Something New For Me!
    I had never really watched an anime like this before. I appreciated the intelligence and weaknesses of Lord El-Melloi II, and his reliance on his students, who obviously love him for who he is. I also appreciate the degree magic is used, it's not flat out ridiculous like other anime, which makes it feel like the characters have their own special gifts and abilities, rather than the ...

    Fate Zero + CSI London
    Ever wondered what happened to Waver after Fate Zero. Honestly, You don't even need to be a fate fan or have watched the fate series to enjoy this series in a nutshell its basically a CSI London with magic where they solve a murder mystery every-week with Waver Velvet who is no longer a wimpy kid but now rocks a bad ass set of hair and a cigar as a new Sherlock Holmes of the Holy Grail war

    Great insight to the Fate universe
    This is a grand sequel to the Fate/Zero series and is set around the time of Fate UBW. It follows Waver as an accomplished professor at the famous Clock Tower. As the title suggest, this is a detective/action series set in the Fate universe. I found it highly entertaining with a great cast of characters. I highly recommend this for people who like the Fate series, the detective genre, and ...

    The Best of the Fate series.
    A sleeper sequel to Fate/ Zero, this anime turned out to be one of the strongest in the franchise. Definitely watch Fate/ Zero (also fantastic) before you watch this. Compelling characters and interesting magical mysteries expand the main Fate universe and the world of the Mages' Association.

    There are references to other Fate stories, but those are non-canon in the main universe and the ...
