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

"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

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" - Lord John Dalberg-Acton, 1837.

There are many types of power - financial, military, political, religious, etc - and at one time or another each has been used to further the goals of individuals, organisations, and even nations. The odd thing though, is that even though it has been referenced for thousands of years in everything from legends and myths to folktales and history, magic has rarely been placed in the same category. The problem is that people don't really believe in magic any more, and the subject has been relegated to the realms of fiction and 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.
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 Impacts and the Holy Grail Wars are alike since they occurred throughout the years but have different outcomes
-Supernatural substances in NGE and Magic in Fate Zero
If you like one or the other, it's worth it trust me, if you watch Fate/Zero, you will be amazed by it's high quality animation and storytelling.
The feelings of both shows are similar since as the story processes, more characters are taken out making it more lonely. For the most part, it reflects on their point of views and their backgrounds. Both have great action, soundtrack, animation, and development. Also similar conclusions as well. I found some character similarities, Kiritsugu=Spike, Kirei=Vicious, Rider=Jet and Kiritsugu's band has the same amount that Spike has. Trust me it's linear since each episodes focuses on the story then they show backstories and pasts, etc.
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.
If you've watched Fate/Zero, then Aldnoah Zero is worth for you. Aldnoah Zero isn't as well animated as Fate/Zero but the visuals are as good as they can be. Both have the same band, awesome ost, war, violence, deaths, and by the same director.
