*Fate/Prototype- Before Fate/Stay Night was around as we know it, the creator Kinoko Nasu had many prior thoughts of what FSN could be like. As a teen in high school this was actually the original concept he came up with before they where entirely reworked for the Visual Novel.

Updated 1/23/12: Yay Subs that are easier to understand =], Added a bit to story, and characters


From what I can gather Fate/Prototype is the *original version* of Fate/Stay Night (FSN) before it was completely redone into the FSN Visual Novel as it is today. Substantial changes were made to the script and characters to get the FSN read more

This is basically what Fate/staynight could have been. The format is kind of similar to a trailer.

First of all, the animation is absolutely fantastic, and the soundtrack isn't bad either.

In this version of the Holy Grail War, the main character is instead a girl called Ayaka, whose family was involved in the previous war. She doesn't want to get involved in the present war (apparently they take place every 8 years now). However, she gets attacked by Lancer, and ends up summoning Saber. Who is male.

The rest of the OVA is composed of really quick flashes of scenes and battles. It's confusing to watch, and read more

Watching this felt like watching a trailer for a really interesting Anime.

I have not watched Fate/Stay Night but read a little of the Manga, but I can already say that this is a lot Darker than that. It surprised me to no end that it even seemd darker than Kara no Kyoukai! This concept would be really amazing for a standalone Alternative story. And I think it´s unfair making such a interesting looking OVA on only 12.11 Minutes. I want more.

Art: Nothing special, it´s like all the other Anime works of Type-Moon.

Sound: Okay sounding. Kinda fits the scenes.

Characters: The Characters seems to be a lot read more
