Synopsis

The battle for the Holy Grail continues, with more lives lost and more secrets revealed. When the curtain falls, who will emerge victorious is anyone's guess... And what "victorious" truly means, is even more questionable.

“Glory lies beyond the horizon. Challenge it because it is unreachable. Speak of conquest and demonstrate it.” - Rider

The Holy Grail—an omnipotent wish granting device which grants the owner any one wish of their deepest desire. For generations, the Holy Grail Wars were held every 60 years to decide who would be worthy to yield an item of such immense power; seven Masters coupled with seven Servants duke it out in a battle royale to the death, but only one master and servant can be victorious.

Fate/Zero is a thrilling, engaging, intellectual and mature anime with read more

One thing that is likely to surprise a lot of people who are newly introduced to anime is just how powerful the tales that are told have the potential to be. Just simply being animated doesn’t take anything away from the narrative, and once in a while, the quality of these stories butt heads with actual literature. That’s because once in a blue moon, anime is adapted from just that… actual literature.

Cue Fate/Zero, Ufotable’s treasured serial anime, and prequel to the revolutionary Visual Novel adaption, Fate/Stay Night. Praised by many as a jewel that could stand against the likes of epics such as The Odyssey read more

"Those who desire to rise as high as our human condition allows, must renounce intellectual pride, the omnipotence of clear thinking, belief in the absolute power of logic." -Alexis Carrel


Overview:

Fate/Zero takes place on the stage of Fuyuki, a city based on modern day Kobe. Here, seven masters chosen by the Holy Grail- an omnipotent wish granting device- gather to do battle. The seven human masters, each from disparate backgrounds, experiences, and creeds assemble, and are granted a "servant", or the spirit of a fallen hero from ages past given physical form. With these servants, the masters wage a proxy war in the form read more

This review analyzes the entirety of Fate/Zero, not secluded to one seasoned release. Firstly, Fate/Zero is a prequel to the stories of "Fate/stay night". "Fate/stay night" originated as a visual novel and later was released as an anime in 2006. That anime, while it does succeed in some ways to its own right, is something that should be taken as its own entity as it can be considered a failure of being an accurate adaptation of the source material. The visual novel itself comprised of three stories that all are tied to this one. Two of those are currently being brought up in anime-form by read more

Recommendations

Same director, same composer, both based of Type Moon novels, along with both containing a similar feel and atmosphere. Both have a mature history. If you like one, you will most definitely like the other.  
Both series have a protagonist with a determined way for victory. Death note has more mind battles, while Fate/zero has more fights. 
Characters fight for different reasons including flashbacks that relate to the series prior to the events that occurred. Both have methodical fighting and some characters have similar personalities in terms of supernatural powers, intelligence, and morals. Both have the impact the world theme which involves sacrifices that determines the fate. 
After watching Fate/Zero, I was reminded of End of Evangelion and the way it ended. Spectacularly dramatic it is because the main characters Kiritsugu and Shinji goes through a series of drama and decisions that decides the factor of the conclusion. Death tolls roll through and one amazing aspect: ACTION PACK! Mechas, swords, magic, and twists occur throughout like a crazy roller coaster! 
Fate/Zero and NGE have whats in common:
-People fighting monsters until the plot gets to the climax
-Female characters whose role aren't human but serves something greater but too suspicious
-Drama is crazy
-Couple of character similarities (Difficult decisions, overcoming fear and anxiety, and dealing with the loss of humanity for the greater good)
-ancient conspiracy
-Action
-Dark and mature tone
-Not just adults but younger characters have some screen time
What's different is that:
-Mechas and Angels play a pivotal role in Third Impact whereas seven magicians and seven servants play a role in the success of the the Holy Grail War
-The  read more 
If you enjoyed the world-encompassing magical systems, the opposing factions, the intense competition & emotional interaction between characters in Fate/Zero 2, I'd suggest you also check out Blast of Tempest for similar themes, atmosphere, and general feel.
