Fate/Stay night was interesting indeed. Although at times I thought it was moving a little too slow, it remained interesting enough for me to continue watching it. This focuses a lot on Sabre, who is an epic hero. It focuses on her past and the relationship between her and the main protagonist. One thing I must say about this series is that the soundtrack is horrible. I swear I found it annoying. Of course many would say not to watch this and watched the new alternative story better since the art is excellent and this is crap compared to it. While I won't disagree, if you decide to go into the Fate franchise, I recommend watching this before the UNLIMITED BLADEWORKS, and not the other way around. This will give you a nice taste of what it's all about then when you watch UNLIMITED BLADEWORKS, you will get the entire entree. If you feel like you don't like it from the start, then just drop it and watch the alternative.
I personally like the use of Epic Heroes in this anime because it utilizes hero from stories of the past and incorporates their legends. If you're into stuff like King Arthur, Hercules and others, watch this. read more
This is less of a comprehensive review of the series and more of a reaction to what I saw. The reason here is that I haven't finished Fate/Stay Night. I couldn't finish Fate/Stay Night. My body physically rejected this anime halfway through episode 12, causing fever symptoms. As such, halfway through episode 12 is all I will be able to cover.
The story might have been interesting, had it been presented pretty much any other way. The Holy Grail War sounds like it could be a good concept, and probably is a good concept in Fate/Zero, which I will attempt to watch as soon as I get over the whole Worm Crest thing. That concept makes my stomach churn. Anyway, there's not much more I can say about the plot. The show moves so slowly that I really didn't get around to much of it.
The art and sound both left no impression on me whatsoever. If I were to hear a track from Fate/Stay Night, I would not be able to recognize which anime it came from. The art was similarly uninteresting. It might have been good if I had been able to muster the willpower to pay attention to it. Still, considering the main character has a total of two outfits, it can't have been all that impressive.
The characters are by far the most appalling part of this anime. I'll start with the main character:
Shirou is the worst. He is an idiot, thinking that he is capable of fighting superpowered servants with a lead pipe. He is arrogant for the same reason. He is sexist because he orders his own superpowered servant to sit at home and let him fight just because she's a girl. Lastly, he's a disgrace as a mage. The fact that he is Saber's master means she's incredibly weak and doesn't get the mana she needs to continue existing. Shirou doesn't seem to be willing to make compromises; everything has to be exactly how he wants it, and he just sort of expects the universe to comply. Fortunately for him, his plot armor is so thick that it does.
Saber isn't much better. She is basically a robot, with the only "character development" stemming from her own backstory. I have heard that she gets a personality later on, but waiting over 12 episodes for one of the main characters to act like an actual character is insane. She also looks stupid fighting with the invisible sword. I understand that they have to conceal their identities and revealing what her sword looks like would give it away, and I'm aware of the benefits to not allowing your enemy to see your weapon until they have already been cut, but the anime just makes it look so stupid, as if she's playing with an imaginary weapon.
Rin Tohsaka isn't the worst character in an anime, that honor goes to Shirou, but her motivations are questionable. She has no good reason to team up with Shirou. Additionally, she has been a Mary Sue for all of what I've been able to sit through. She knows how magic works, she knows Shirou's magical potential, she has a magical gem that can open his magic circuits, and she doesn't respond negatively to summoning the wrong servant. She just offhandedly mentions that she wanted Saber but she's fine with Archer.
Sakura has exactly one dimension to her character. She likes Shirou. That is 100% of her character up until episode 12.
Taiga is at least entertaining. She is also the last of the characters whose names I remember. Taiga is the character that's supposed to breathe a breath of fun into a dark and serious anime, but she never seems to show up. If Taiga had been utilized better, this show might be watchable.
Enjoyment gets a 1. Shirou is infuriating, it's like watching a dog get fooled by its owner pretending to throw a ball over and over again. At first it's entertaining, but then you just wonder "why hasn't he learned yet?" Additionally, the fight scenes last a few minutes at most, followed by several episodes of people standing around and talking.
And my overall score is a 1. If you manage to eke out any enjoyment from this pile of garbage, then I envy you. If you're considering trying it out, then by all means go ahead. Other people seem to like it, so maybe there are redeemable features that I don't understand, but don't feel the need to finish Fate/Stay Night just because Fate/Zero exists. It's not worth it. I was trying to watch Fate/Stay Night because I knew that if I watched Fate/Zero first, I would never be able to get through Stay Night. As it turns out, I can't get through it regardless. If nothing else, maybe you can try it out and see just what it is about this show that caused me to give all three of my roommates a lesson on anime just to fully convey how terrible this show is. read more
So it’s been nearly a decade since the release of Fate/stay night and its reputation has greatly fallen since then. If you’re reading this review, you’ve most likely heard how atrocious this is compared to ufotable’s Fate/Zero and Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV)… Well, as an average anime viewer without extremely high expectations, I can say that this adaptation isn’t the best, but isn’t exactly all that bad…
Story (6): The story takes place in Fuyuki City and depicts the events of the 5th Holy Grail War, following the characters Emiya Shirou and Saber. To simplify things, the Holy Grail War is a deadly battle royale where seven people (usually mages) and their summoned Servants duel each other for the Holy Grail, a device that can grant wishes. (Or you could you read the synopsis…)
Anyways, the low score isn’t really contributed by the simple premise of the series, but it’s really predictable with a few twists here and there. Essentially, this “battle royale” isn’t really much of an actual battle royale… The main cast of Shirou and Saber (Arturia Pendragon) just defeat one foe after another through miraculous and confusing feats. In addition, a great chunk of the show is contributed to explaining how the Holy Grail War works and the way their world works. Yet, in the end, the anime still leaves the viewer confused on the relationships between many of the characters, the way magic works, and other matters concerning the story.
I could continue to rant on minor mistakes within the plot, but it couldn’t change the fact that the story is structured quite well and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The episodes really tied nicely into each other, and the ending was particularly tear-jerking and filled with emotion. The series was filled with satisfying fight sequences, and did a great job in implementing the variety of emotions within it, like humor or grief.
Characters (5): To me, this field is where the anime is lacking. Granted, the characters all do have their unique personality, wishes, backgrounds, and designs (e.g. Shirou and his wish to become a hero of justice, Saber and her wish to find a better individual to become King of Britain), but most of the characters aren’t really featured much and don’t really have much character development. It is further broken down into 3 more categories.
Main Cast (7):
Saber – Saber is, without a doubt, my favorite female character in all of anime. She is nothing close to being the stereotypical female character, as a legendary warrior of high moral code. She is a rough, straightforward person, but she isn’t your average stoic warrior, as she embodies a softer side that is shown as well. Saber is really the only character who changes across the course of the show, and in my opinion, is the main driving force behind the show.
Emiya Shirou – “People die if they are killed.” Shirou isn’t really the sharpest knife in the drawer, and really lacks common sense throughout the anime. He is characterized by his crazy amount of selflessness, and always seems to get himself into easily avoidable trouble. Even so, he does manage to grow to some degree. Now, I’m not hating on this character, in fact I loved him in ufotable’s adaptation. However his idiocy was really taken to its limits in this particular series.
Supporting Cast (3): In general, the supporting characters are one-dimensional, and just seem to be there to aid in the plot. I mean, they each have their goals and motivations, but it really isn’t there long enough for the viewers to truly experience these characters. A prime example would be Archer, seeing how he only briefly appeared within the series.
Relationships (5): As for the relationships/connections between characters, most were confusing and weren’t really explained. These include the connection between Sakura and Rin or Shirou’s relationship with Archer. Moreover, why would Rin team up with someone like Shirou? I feel like Deen could have done a better job in delving more into these relationships between these particular characters. The one and only relationship that was delved upon and that I enjoyed was between Shirou and Saber. I don’t really know why, but I liked seeing how their relationship blossomed over time.
Art & Animation (7):
Art (8): The artwork within this particular series is quite good, seeing how it was released in 2006. Although, it really isn’t comparable to anime released nowadays. If you were to be extremely picky about the art of an anime, this most likely isn’t for you. Look at the cover of the anime, if you aren’t sure, as the art is roughly the same as that of cover for duration of the series. Personally, the character designs and background look to be decent with a bit of a darker tone. The only real problem is it lacks detail in both the characters and the setting.
Animation (6): This series has its ups and downs, concerning animation. Sadly, much of the series’ animation is more of being down in that it gets somewhat choppy and doesn’t have the vibe of running so smoothly. One particular scene was with the not-that-good 3D rendered dragon. Although, depending on the exact scene (mostly fight scenes), the quality of animation would spike, but not as much or as long as one would hope for.
Sound (7): I couldn’t really find any major problems with the sound, as it was actually pretty good. The voice acting was on point, syncing up well with the animation. The sound effects were cued nicely as well, and blended well with the scenes most of the times. As for the openings and endings, they were actually quite catchy and pleasing to my ears, although they weren’t really memorable compared to others. Yet another plus would be the unique and cool way they had implemented German within the series.
Sub v. Dub: Personally, I prefer sub over dub, but it really depends more on you and your own tastes. The main reason I choose sub over dub is that the Japanese voices really compliment and fit the characters, especially Saber with her high code of honor and chivalry.
Enjoyment (8): Seeing as how I came to this anime hearing how horrible it is, it’s not surprising that I came out thinking to myself that this anime wasn’t all that bad. I actually enjoyed it to some degree, seeing as how I have already been attached to some of the characters (**cough cough** Saber **cough cough**) through the visual novel. Sadly, the series left much of its potential to rot and waste, lowering my enjoyment of it. But that’s just my own opinion…
Recommendations: This particular series is more suited towards those without high expectations of a show, seeing as how it’s an average anime that doesn’t really excel in any particular field. It’d most likely bore you if you were that sort of person.
Fans of Type-Moon, the Fate series, and Saber will most likely enjoy it. Although, if you are a fan, but already experienced Fate/Zero and/or Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV), this series will probably be an eyesore for you, as it doesn’t even compare to ufotable’s works. Although, if you really want to see some more Saber, I’d recommend that watch the first few episode and see if you like it or not.
And for those of you who don’t really know how to get about watching the Fate series, I’d recommend this particular order:
1. This Series
3. Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV)
4. Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel (when it comes out in 2016)
Those who take a liking to shonen or any of the other genres this anime falls under should attempt it. Not only is it check off all the requirements for a standard shonen anime, but this series includes numerous of unique elements other anime may not have.
Individuals who take a liking to anime exhibiting elements of romance and comedy may also like this series, seeing as how Shirou and Saber’s romantic relationship plays a large role within the anime.
Overall, I would give Fate/stay night at 7 out of 10 stars.
MY FIRST REVIEW!!!!
Alright, so I just finished watching this and I have to say that it was good but very over-hyped. Let's go step by step now:
The story was serviceable for me. There were no surprises and twists that would blow your mind. The finale is fairly predictable but solid. There are some plotholes however that leave you stumped and the anime loses the realism at times because of it. There are also a bunch of conveniences thrown in so the story can move along. Overall though, the writers had the right idea with the story but they weren't completely successful.
Art: The animations were fine, especially for the fact that this was released back in 2006. The fights looked great and the individual character models were fine. The surrounding areas such as trees, buildings, etc... could have been touched up more but didn't really bother me.
Sound: The soundtrack is cheesy but I liked it. It has the right vibe to how the story is being told. The voice acting for the original Japanese version was good, though one character in particular's voice pissed me the hell off. The fights, sword play, walking, etc... sounded great, no problems for me.
Character: This is where the biggest problem lies. The main character is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING!! He is reckless and just does not think with his head. The characters in this show overall are not fully-fleshed out and most of the characters were irrelevant. Some characters were introduced early on, and they added absolutely nothing to the overall story.
Enjoyment: I enjoyed it but after a certain amount of episodes, it just started becoming a chore. That is never a good sign and this anime meandered way longer than necessary. But again, there is enjoyment to be had.
Overall: It is a solid anime and I can see why people obsessed over it. Fate/Stay Night definitely had their moments but in the end, it was sort of a chore to finish up. There were too many inconsistencies that made the feeling of realism dissipate. Not to mention all the plot conveniences and lack of memorable characters, you have yourself a fairly forgettable anime. With that said, there is enjoyment to be had while watching this and I'll give Fate/Stay night a 6. read more
Action-packed anime with magic-girl as leading cast heavily supported by a guy who only looks out for her safety.
Sword Wielding Otherworldly female main characters that are overly obsessed for their duty who eventually fall for a poor unsuspecting man who accidentally met them and feel a duty to protect the female cast. To make it even better, in both anime the main female characters have no clue how love should feel and are confused =P.
Similar kind of action and romance rooted in a developed backstory.
the 2 anime are base on destroy something to acquire something.us It's all about normal people who have to fight even if they dont want to.
Both are have heavy shounen plot lines mixed with a variety of mythological allegories and a dash of romance. I personally find Shana to be the superior, especially in the romance an umour department, nut F/SN has better fights and mythological connections. Both are great shounens that are not to long, like some of the very popular ones, and are excellent choices if you want a lighter anime with fights and love.
In both, the boy's world is suddenly turned upside down upon meeting a supernatural being that almost had him killed but got saved by a girl, with magical powers, wielding a sword and great fighting skills. This marked the begining of a bizzare relationship.. Also you will find that the boy is also special that caused them to live in a world far from the ordinary
Both series start off featuring a male lead whose life is (mostly) normal, until that one moment where he ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, which results in the addition of a female sword-wielding partner and a battle of life or death. Also in both is a latent ability hidden within each of the male leads not fully exploited until the arrival of said partner, an ability that, when finally tapped, proves useful for overcoming the obstacles each side must face.
Magic, fighting, colourful art. They both have em and are great watches. Although Fate Stay Night gives off a more colder feel than Shakugan no Shana.
Powerful girl + weak guy who strives to become stronger. Romance + action + fantasy
Shana; powerful but confused with feelings and duties Saber
Yuji; powerless, useless, just a pain the ass Shirou
Similar historical plot and legendary names, not enough explained characters and turn of events..
Both are cute girls who battling with sword
Both animes offer the exact same experience, though fate/stay night does it better imho.
They both have a heroine that is a talented blade worker .. both are confused about their own feelings and both are strong and beautiful .. they both defend the honor of what they believe in .. and both are willing to give their lives to protect the ones they love ..
Both are about a high school guy with some magic inside them who has a magical girl with a big sword appear in his life, suddenly all sorts of magical monsters start attacking, and then they have to go into battles.
Similar plotlines. Plenty of fighting. Tsunderes. Animation quality is relatively similar. Relatively similar tone and level of tension. Strong female characters.
Similar Premise, although fate/stay night has a darker tone.
similar plotlines, sword wielding female main characters and both are a must to see
These two have same style, love and fantasy fighting theme. The female protagonist both starts off with "Cold Heart". Later, they start to learn what is "love".
Both series originaly derive from visual novels by Type-Moon.
The stories are also somewhat similar, both featuring a teenage boy being drawn into a conflict, supported by many female characters, and both series have strong female main characters.
If you by any chance liked the anime of the highly-celebrated eroge game Tsukihime, there's no reason for a person who played Fate/Stay Night to not see the anime. Despite lacking the in-depth story telling present in the games, any fan should at least watch it and compare it to them. Of course that for those who haven't played both games, and loved or enjoyed watching Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night should be something they should watch as well. Same universe, different place, different setting. Can you make any connections between both series or their characters?
In both animes the main character is a boy whose life is in danger. Then he gets involved with a girl from another world who becomes his fighting partner. Both animes have quite a sad, serious feeling. Fate/stay night might be a bit more flashy.
Very similar in tone and look. Involves supernatural themes in a vaguely similar way and the male protagonists are similar in their approaches as well. Definitely worth a look.
Based on one of TYPE-MOONs visual novels as well. Written by Nasu Kinoko.
Both by Type-Moon. Almost everything besides the shows specific things seem the same.
When the main male char runs into the vampire princess Tsukihime one day, his life changed drastically. Together with Tsukihime he fights against the evil guy, so in this way it is similar to Fate/stay night. It has also a similar ending.
Although the plot itself has nothing to do with Fate, people who liked Fate usually like more productions by Type Moon, and this is one of them.
Also Produced by Type-Moon and takes place in the same universe
Fate/stay night and Tsukihime plays on the fantasy world on the "modern" era. Fantasy in the sense of monsters and magic, with action and blood.
Animation style, the world in Tsukihime seems a bit more gritty, while Fate/stay series is a bit more vibrant.
From the same creators, Type-Moon
Both based on the erotic visual novel game.
However, they do not use the nude and sex scenes as a crutch in either series. Even though they are targeting the audience of teenage males, the strongest characters are the female leads.
Set within the same universe.
Like Shirou, Raki finds himself with a powerful and attractive female warrior. They both come to realize their harsh realities and even develop deep feelings for them while finding out their history and their inevitable dark fates.
Similar strong female character + (Weak) male. Romance and good storyline.
Similar in the way that the female protagonist is the one engaging in most of the battles and they are accompanied by a weaker male role. Both guys fall for the girls and there is a heavy amount of action.
Saber is a lot like Clare. Both animes have action, a female main character which fights with a sword and protects a boy... and so on....
On the surface, Claymore and Fate/stay night share similar characters. Saber, the female lead of Fate/stay night, and Clare, the female lead of Claymore, share both attitude and fighting style. Saber and Clare act tough and speak formally, in a way, and they both use large swords to fight. They both can take plenty of damage. The male leads, Raki, from Claymore, and Shirou, from Fate/stay night, help take care of the female leads. They have more differences, but they're both supporting leads, in a sense.
For story, on the surface, they look completely different. Claymore has more violence and focuses around fighting monsters, while Fate/stay night focuses on winning a contest for the Holy Grail, so the fighters must fight each other. The more you dig into the story, however, the more alike they seem. For example, Claymore and Fate/stay night both share the same character development between the male and female leads, and it also shares the growth of the male lead through the series.
The feel of each series is different. Claymore comes across as far more violent, with richly colored blood, while Fate/stay night comes across as more dramatic violence, with less blood and more character interaction. Claymore does have it's emotional moments, but they're rare and don't really show up until the end of the series.
Through most of the differences, Claymore and Fate/stay night do share a lot, and I'm recommending this series for mainly the characters. There are other things, as I said above, but characters are really the main similarity.
Both Animes deal with swordsmanship, fighting, romance between the main characters, a strong woman, and weaker but then eventually strong man, who she has to protect. I think they are pretty similar anime, so if you liked one you will surely like the other. BOTH ANIMES ROCK =)
both have a virtually useless male lead with an extremely awesome female swordsman counterpart.
there's lots of blood and fighting.
while claymore is set in a somewhat medieval setting, fate stay/night is like taking that stuff and putting it into a modern setting.
there's a lot of swords.
fate/stay night and claymore both have action and fantasy. the main guy in both seris' look alike and have similiar personalties in wanting to protect the main female. The main female leads kinda look alike there personalties are really alike both the quit and strong type.
Main character is helpless boy with powerful female sidekick kicking ass. Both have a decent story.
Both anime have strong sword or weapon wielding secondary female characters who decide to protect the weaker but "good" and "innocent" main male character who has latent talent and power. They inevitably begin to fall in love throughout the anime. The main characters discover their own strength as the anime progresses.
In both animes they got a master whom they are fighting together with to become the last ones left and win the competition.
Same plot. Servants fighting each other, but Fate/Stay Night doesn't have the ecchi stuff in it.
Same deal with people fighting to reach a supreme goal.
Both are very similar because of the "game" the characters are forced into : there's a war in the city, and the masters[fsn] / ashikabis[sekirei] fight with their servants[fsn] / sekireis for the title of strongest.
Then again, lots of similarities if you pay attention: both main characters are worried about their woman and dont want to let em fight or cry about not being able to help them etc. Servants however are not all women with oversized boobs! Fate stay night doesn't rely on the fan service, as it's a serious anime with a deep setting and storyline : less echi, more action, beautiful effects...
I recommend it for those who liked the idea of a battle royale in the city!
its the same: It's a war (competition) with a master and warlike (one or more) which makes a team and which fights of another teams. But it's more funny and ecchi ;)
In sekirei plot stories you will find out that it has similarity with fate stay night.The only differences is in Fate Stay Night master can only have 1 servant but in Sekirei the master can have as many servant they want and in sekirei you will find the female character have voluptuous body and bouncing boobs(echi..)
-Both animes are about receiving or meeting a partner (coincidence or not) to fight in a survival game, and aim to defeat the other partnerships to win the game.
Both Anime's feature a guy that aquires a guardian/fighter and are forced to make battle with other "masters" until they are the only one left.
They both have a master servent thing going they both have the main dude falling and love with his servant/s and always wanting to protect them/her
Same plot. Servants fighting each other.
-Both animes are about receiving or meeting a third party to supply you with powers to fight in a survival game, and aim to defeat the other parties to win the game.
Fate Stay Night and Mirai Nikki both tells about Survival Game in which the contestants battle against each other to win the prize. They also features similar protagonists who were initially weak and pathetic, but grows as the series progresses. In FSN, Emiya Shirou is accompanied by Saber while in Mirai Nikki Yukiteru is accompanied by Gasai Yuno. Yuno and Saber are both powerful heroines able to surpass the heroes in combat.
Both animes began to unveil dark, hidden secrets as the story progresses.
Both the protagonists have been dragged into a war (both against 11 other characters) without a choice, a fight for survival with the reward being something of great importance. Both have very dark themes
They both are survival games - in fate/stay night, it is a game between 7 masters, each with their servants.
Both anime deal with the competition, where the winners receive supernatural power.
As well, both the main hero has a complex relationship with one of the participants in the competition.
The characters are forced to participate in a game where they must kill in order to be granted any one wish. There are no familiars, but the concept is similar. The main characters are both unwilling, but this anime is more horror though.
Fate/stay night and Mirai Nikki involve Emiya Shirou and Yukiteru Amano, respectively, being dragged into a survival game against their will. The games in both involve goin against a set of opponents with a certain objective. In Fate/stay night, the objective is to eliminate all the opposing servants of the other contestants. In Mirai Nikki, you must destroy all other future diaries owned by the contestants. If one were to win in Mirai Nikki, one would become god of their universe. If one were to win in Fate/stay night, one would receive the all powerful Holy Grail. Both main characters are portrayed to be weak and soft in their personalities. The two characters receive help from strong-willed, more experienced females--Tohsaka Rin in Fate/stay night, and Gasai Yuno in Mirai Nikki. Both shows can be lighthearted but can also become very dark. They were both very enjoyable to watch.
Both animes involve a winner-take-all game where the combatants have to fight one another to the death.
Both have a protagonist who is reluctant to fight unless absolutely necessary
Both have a female main character who is clearly more skilled than the protagonist (and is much more willing to play the game)
In both this female character assists the protagonist in trying to win the game
Both are quite dark and have a lot of bloodshed and deaths as the story progresses
Both have very good fight scenes and story exposition, as well as good character growth
Mirai Nikki uses cellphones as diaries to predict the future and the characters have to fight amongst themselves, whereas F/SN the characters summon servants to help them fight
Mirai Nikki the game is held to determine the next God of Space and Time, F/SN the game is held to determine a worthy recipient of the Holy Grail
In both anime there is a survival game and participants need to fight each other for some price.
Main characters in both animes have to play in survival game where the winner's wish will be fulfilled and the loser will face the death penalty
both animes are incredibly dar
These are both fantasy anime about a man who has a contract with a rather skilled girl that comes from nowhere. Moreover, the guy seems really useless at the beginning but will begin to fight along with her.
In both anime, the main character makes a contract with another character. You also get the same vibe from watching both.
Both anime are about an average and boring guy who suddenly meets a strong and cute girl who has super powers. The two make a contract together and (initially) have a master-servant relationship, where the girl fights, and the guy is basically useless.
Also, in both anime the main guy is an orphan, and has a childhood friend who is clearly in love with him (Sakura in FSN, Akane in Kurokami).
Both are shounen anime which have fantasy, magic, action, and drama.
Kurokami is more fast-paced and overall better than FSN, though.
In both anime we have a more or less normal male protagonist who makes a contract with powerful supernatural being (or more precisely a girl). As time passes both are trown into a lot of fights and they learn to how to effectively support their supernatural partners (althought they are always supporters and they practically cannot fight on their own).
The story is about a man who make contract with unknown woman because he was in the verge of death,after he was been saved by the woman he is find out about doppel liner system bit by bit then he find out that he was root.although he was not root he still fight to change his destiny.
They both surrend teams of tweo people working together for a cause.
They both have's similar aspect's like FSN...In both anime's there are mark's on the hand's of the fighter and in both anime's just 1 person fights and the other one give's commands.Very similar stories
These two anime have a similar air to them. Shirou can be compared to Kurokami's male protagonist Keita, as they both enter a world of fighting with beings far greater than themselves. In F/SN we have servants while in Kurokami, we have Motutsumitama. If you like F/SN, you'll definitely enjoy Kurokami
although the ambition of the protagonist in each anime is different but both protagonist character is rather similar very determined despite their lack of power and willing to sacrifice itself to save the people. theres also about forming contract however in kurokami is not a contract between ancient champions but more with a powerful race known as motosumitama.

Disillusion: Fate/Stay Night's Opening Song
Fate/stay night's openings gives sound to the themes and values that appear in the series. In this sense, Disillusion (the first opening) talks about the dreams we may be after.
