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.

"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

(Review for both season 1 and 2, spoiler free)

“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.

To be fair for the second season of Fate/Zero on MyAnimeList, I will be going to write almost the same review as the one I gave in the first season of Fate/Zero. There are few add-ons though. Nevertheless, I enjoyed both seasons very much to be honest... So here we go!

This review is going to be my review of Fate/Zero as a whole, not just the second season.

This show was epic. It was able to create some extremely interesting characters and throw them all together into a battle where they need to interact, have philosophical discussions, and ultimately see whose ideals are the best. The animation of this show is freaking gorgeous. The soundtrack is pretty dece. The characters are great (although there are definitely some weaker ones). So many great things can be said about this show, and I'm sure they have been said many times, so I am read more

Anime: Death Note
Both series have a protagonist with a determined way for victory. Death note has more mind battles, while Fate/zero has more fights.

Anime: Aldnoah.Zero
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. 
reportRecommended by SlaughterDagger
Anime: Mirai Nikki (TV)
Both feature a battle royale setting, where several characters fight eachother to death for one goal. These characters are aided by a third party in both cases as well. This makes for quite a similiar atmosphere in both shows. 
reportRecommended by Furbylicious
Anime: Kara no Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei
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.  
reportRecommended by ChrnoTodd
Anime: Naruto: Shippuuden
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.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
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!

Can the Ends Justify the Means? The Opening of Fate/Zero

Fate/Zero is a brilliantly constructed anime that deals with the complex themes of morality and the justifications of violent actions. Each episode reveals deep insights through its intense character development and storyline, but the opening is also a statement in and of itself!
