PostSubject: Can I watch Fate/Zero?    14th October 2014, 2:32 pm

I have seen this anime surface on the internet and I thought it looked cool. So when I went looked it up to see what it's about I found it's a prequel to Fate/Stay Night. That series was a game which has been turned into an anime and then there's on going one called Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works. So where do I start with this series? Is okay to watch the prequel first or should I go with other series first? If so which anime version should I watch? 


Also is this series worth my time? Because while does look pretty the plot could suck. The plot is the most important thing to me.

Fate/Zero spoils like all of the F/SN plottwist esp heavens feel. and the shitty DEEN animus did not exits. so the order you should go is:

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works (TV/Ufotable) > Fate/Stay Night Heavens Feel Movie(s) > Fate/Zero > everything else (like the parody anime blabla)



and no Fate/Stay Night is not a "game" it's a visual novel so it's more similiar to a book. and Fate/Zero is originally a light novel written by Gen Urobuchi with the intention that people already KNOW Fate/Stay Night Wink

and people should not forget this:
UBW starts with a so called episode 0 and then episode 1. both episodes are already out and both are 50 minutes long. episode 0 is rin's pov and episode 1 is shirou's pov so both end at the moment when saber attackes archer. the next episode will be normal long. and the anime is split cour. the first half will air during fallseason and the second half during the springseason 2015. we don't know at what point ufo will actually end the first half but knowing the source material the second half will be much much better



so yeah you should watch it it's one of the must know franchise. esp now since we have ufotable making a worthy adaption of the source material and no heavens feel is not animated yet Ufotable will do this after UBW..

Well it's on gaming system so it's a game to me. Razz

So about the Fate/Night 24 episode anime from 2006? So I just ignore it and watch the ongoing one like you suggested? What's UWB?

yes because both the 2006 anime and 2010 UBW movie did not exist and are an insult to the source material. this quote is the perfect description of deen ubw

what ufotable gave us in the first 100 minutes so far are 6 minutes in "deen amv" so pls stay far far away from this moon turds Wink

got around to watch it? i have to say the first half of UBW was more slow build up and and it really shines in the second half that starts april.

btw on bluray the first half will be around 90 minutes longer than the TV/Simulcast version ^.^

Thanks for the advice! My bf gave me a copy of the game, and has been trying to get me to watch the anime when I haven't even started the game yet. (He's doing both at the same time.) So I can tell him not right now because of spoilers! 
Though I've heard the visual novel is looong.

i think there it's not thaaaat wrong to watch UBW anime before. the most important thing that people should keep in mind is to NOT touch Fate/Zero until finishing the complete VN or watching Heavens Feel.

the VN also don't start with UBW. the prologe is the same everytime but then it splits into: Fate > Unlimited Blade Works > Heavens Feel. so if the VN is not manipulated a new route get unlocked after a route is finished.
so it would be a good thing that he at least read the Fate route of the VN before watching UBW anime. in japan they gave the Fate route out for free (android) so that people can read it before UBW comes out. because Fate don't get an adaption. but a warning it's the slowest route. and keep in mind all the bad/dead ends when you make a wrong decision xD
