*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.

The other characters aren't explained much in detail so that the end of that . Music was fitting but read more
