Who is this for? Why was this even attempted?! Who the hell thought cramming 30 hours of story into a 90 minute movie was a great idea?! This "movie" is a disaster! If you have never heard of fate, you will be lost in this incomprehensible mess. If you have seen fate stay night by DEEN, the first third of the movie is a boring recap, the twists in the second act will be rubbish to you and in the third act... you will have an embarrassingly hilarious final fight and instead of a CG dragon you will get a read more

Fate/Stay Night is one of those franchises that needs very little introduction. TYPE-MOON's hit visual novel from 2004 was adapted for anime in 2006, and while the original series was good for the most part, the show suffered due to an inherent problem with any visual novel adaptation.

Visual novels are a strange blending of anime, manga and games that, in a number of cases, allow the player a degree of choice over the events in the story (although there are some purely linear ones out there). The issue though, is that the same event may have several different outcomes that are dependent on the read more

Oh, UBW, where should I start?

UBW was probably one of the most anticipated movies, and I can't blame people for that - the original route in the Visual Novel was outstanding, touching, at one time keeping you at the edge of your seat, at another causing you to cry about the pain of the characters, the results of their unfortunate choices, their small mistakes or simply outstanding sacrifices. The movie made me remember that story, made me want to live through it again.

Too bad it doesn't MAKE me live through it again.

IMO the obvious mistake the creators did, was forcing 20 hours of game-play into read more

There are many times in anime where I've been left dry simply because I was out of the target audience. However, there is a time, rare that it may be, that an anime is created with absolutely no target audience in question. Unlimited Blade Works is lucky that I don't consider it a movie because it would be one of the worst, if not the worst anime movie I have ever seen. Unfortunately compiling a slide show of random fights without any well established context, background information, plot, scene transitioning, and character development does not qualify as an actual movie.

First thing's first though and for read more

Recommendations

- Main characters trying to save people
- Both have a master controlling somebody to fight for them
- There is a bit of romance in both
- Lots of fights
Both anime's story is about a struggle to make a wish come true...
Both shows the despair and consequences that came along from a simple wish
These two films retell the story showed in the television series, with new scenes, new animation and more epic moments. Protagonists are alike.
1. Both titles are based off of video game franchises
2. Both have plenty of sword and sorcery
3. Both have very good production value which can be seen in the action scenes
4. In order to fully appreciate, the source material should be played (in Fate's case at least watch the first animated series and do a little research on the visual novel)
Two game based anime movies, with awesome animation and lot of action where the fighting scenes are almost flawless.
The details are pinpoint accurate, with a decent amount of blood&gore.
Also it's helpfull if you played the game's or read a little something regarded to the games because it will maybe be a little hard to understand the story or to connect some characters with the main story.
