Synopsis

Rescued from a hellish inferno as a child and taught the art of magecraft by Kiritsugu Emiya, Shirou Emiya idolized his adoptive father. After his father's untimely death, Shirou vowed to follow in his footsteps and fight for the good of the world.

Years later, Shirou lingers at his school after nightfall and comes across a battle being waged by two superhuman beings known as Servants. When one of these Servants tries to kill him, Shirou ends up summoning a Servant of his own, a knight by the name of Saber. Together, they become the final participants in the fifth Holy Grail War, a free-for-all battle carried out by seven Servants and their summoners, with the prize being a magical device that can grant any wish.

Based off the famous visual novel by Type-Moon, Fate/Stay Night chronicles the trials and challenges that Shirou faces as he enters a battle that he knew nothing about, but that may very well lead him towards the path of becoming a hero like his father… if he survives, that is.

Just finished this show a couple of moments ago, the hype I got before watching this was IMENSE, but after sitting trough it all I can definitely see where it comes from... for the better and the worse.

I will refrain myself from commenting on the show before I give my view on specific issues. I will try my best to refrain myself from spoilers, but rest assured, some will exist SO if you didn`t watch it yet you are better jumping straight to my conclusion.

Fate/Stay Night is a bit of a sore spot for me. It's the first time I ever sat down, giddy to watch a certain series and came away scratching my head thinking "this is what all the commotion was about?" But in all fairness, Fate/Stay Night is not a terrible anime, just a very overrated one.

The story takes place in modern-day Japan, revolving around a boy named Shirou Emiya and has reluctant participation in a city-wide battle royale known as the Holy Grail War. While this sounds like a shounen set-up, Fate is rather talkative. Scratch that, Fate is way too talkative for its own read more

This has to be one of the best animes I have seen a while. This review may come out a bit biased as I just finished the series and remain blown away by it. Fate/Stay Night (F/SN) is a seinen about a magical war between 7 magi and their powerful servants who were great heroes and demigods from across time. The Heroes are all mythological figures which give background to their motivation although only the main character\'s servant is ever fully explored. The story lacks in that regard but can be easily supplemented through wikipedia. The message of the story was clear by the end read more

In an earlier review, Bluesnow talked about how despite being a good anime, F/SN has a tradition of being overrated. I pretty much agree with this sentiment. This is a good anime, but it definitely has plenty of areas that could be improved.

The plot of this series, is to be honest, pretty horrible. It's extremely linear, it's pretty boring, and there isn't really very much in terms of plot twists or suspense. And what little they had, which was more towards the end of the series, was executed rather badly with bad pacing and ass pulls galore. In mitigation, this was likely caused by read more
