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.

"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.

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

From the mind that gave us works such as Madoka and Saya no Uta comes a tale spun as a predecessor to the wildly popular series Fate/Stay Night. Of course, anyone who has read or watched Fate/Stay Night knows the outcome of the fourth Holy Grail War, but only half the fun of a journey is the destination. Gen Urobuchi and studio Ufotable guide us through a magnificent world saturated with dynamic characters, a beautiful score, jaw-dropping visuals and fluctuating idealistic views, which all congeal into a compelling narrative. Mistakes are made by Ufotable, but compared to the grandiose story and execution they only serve 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

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: 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: 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: 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. 
reportRecommended by SlaughterDagger
Anime: Zetsuen no Tempest
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.
