I watched the first 7 episodes of fate/stay night, and I didn't like it because it is boring and has too much dialogue

I read that fate/zero was better. So, I watched the first 2 episodes of stay/zero. Honestly, it is sucks even more. The first episode (47 min long) was full of boring and pointless dialogue. I got a headache after watching it. However, I did give it another try and watched the second episode, but the anime is still boring.

I like animes like Claymore, death note, code geass. And compared to those fate/zero sucks beyond comparison. I have to say that even ecchi animes like Seikon no Qwaser is more enjoyable than fate/zero.

What so good about this anime ? Does it get better ? or is the rest of the episodes are full of boring and long dialogues ? It is worth to watch the rest of the episodes if I didn't like the first two ?

I don't particularly like Fate/Zero, but the second season is infinitely stronger than the first and you're just asking to get ripped apart by judging something on two episodes.

Yes the first two episode are full of boring and long dialogues. That's why they aired both episodes at once so people could get it out of their system.

Of course, that boring and long dialogue is important if you cared about the actual plot and characters.

So because something is boring you immediately dismiss it as bad?

I think it might be because since you didn't like Fate/Stay Night you might have this mindset you may not like Fate/Zero. You should try and continue watching maybe another 2-3 episodes of Fate/Zero and see if you can get into it has just a lot of dialogue in the beginning to get into the story.

I found Fate/Stay Night atrocious(Couldn't stand the main character) but I watched it all the way through as painful it may have been, watched Fate/Zero and I was quite pleased with the show!

We all have differing opinions and tastes though so it may be something you like or not.

if it didn't attract you by now, it's almost pointless. Once you are set on such opinion, chances it to be changed are almost zero. Better don't bother tbh.

what really pushes people to make these threads, like seriously just cause a show is popular that you dont like doesnt mean you need to be a white knight in shining armor coming in to prevent people from watching it

its just a opinion, the reason our lists are public is if people want to see them they can, we dont need these pointless threads thats only outcome is making the OP look like a fool

like i fucking despise kimi ga nozomu eien witha a passion, alot of people love it but im not going to bother creating a thread saying it sucks cause i know quality of a show is purely subjective and will stay that way and the people that enjoy it really cant care less what i thought of it

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

I don't get it. Is it really so hard for people to realize people can like/dislike what they do/don't? That's basically what all these "overrated" threads amount to. It's all right if the OP could actually make a solid argument but loaded words like "sucks" and "boring" make me, personally, not care.

I'm saving time for OP here, he already gave FZ a chance and it's just not good enough for his taste (it sucks so much even).

Well, your loss. Noone will force you to watch something you don't like/enjoy.
There are a lot of anime which have a "slow" start but get better later on..

That's one of what's great about Fate/Zero, the animation's quality and the visuals, top-notch. In the 2nd season the animations are way better than season 1, and contains more action.
Season 1 is mostly dialogue, some fights now and then like the one I've put above.
FZ and FSN are incomparable btw.

Edit:
Fate/Zero is about 7 heroes (aka Servants), each with his own legend (Kings, Knights, or Criminals), from different eras who collide in a war for obtaining a device that can make one wish come true for 7 people (aka Masters) who desire it, each Master is responsible for a servant.
This serie concentrates on the ideals (of most) of the heroes such as honor, pride and stuff like this (2 or 3 are just mad historic men, which makes the serie more interesting), and the ideals human traits of the people from our current time, such as betrayal, lying, greed and stuff like this. They're portrayed in an amazing way by dialogues, strategies and fights.

Yeah, Fate/Zero was dialogue heavy, lots of conflicting discussions between morals and the philosophies of all the different masters and servants. However, that's exactly why the show is so interesting, so when the servants take out their swords, you know what's going on inside their head, and most importantly WHY they are fighting.

But of course, not everyone appreciates that, and there are some that prefer their anime mindnumbing, pretty on the surface and lacking of any depth; and that's perfectly fine if you're into that sort of thing.

Between you and the OP, I'm starting to think I watched some show competently posing as F/Z.

If you are watching Fate/Zero for the fighting I suggest you to quit while you are ahead.
The series really isn't about the action and you really should know Fate/Stay Night before you watch Fate/Zero by reading the visual novel.
More than anything we don't want any more Naruto people complaining about the lack of action and the excess of dialogue.
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

you actually made an account in MAL just to bash FZ?Boy,you sure have a lot of free time.

And you lost everyone here the moment you said that Seikon no Qwaser is better than FZ.In what way exactly?because I am trying to finish it since January.

Let me guess: K-on and Bleach are masterpieces eh?

God forbid an anime focuses on dialogue and creating strong, engaging and dynamic characters instead of shoving action so far up our asses we shit bankai's for a week.

WAIT. HOLD ON. JUST A MINUTE HERE. Yes, it has been confirmed. Even with compelling dialogue, wonderful characters (I'm looking at you, Ryuunosuke, Kerry, Kotomine, Kariya, Iri, Rider, Gilgamesh, Lancer and Saber) and strategic exchanges between the aforementioned characters Fate/Zero STILL has room for plenty of action?

Too bad the action didn't pick up until episode 5, an entire TWO WHOLE HOURS into the series. If only I had a longer attention span than my pet gold fish I may have been able to feast my eyes upon these magnificently choreographed fight scenes.

Alas, the exposition and world building in the first two episodes, which served no real purpose other to establish the setting and characters upon which the whole story will be molded, was boring.

Yada yada blah blah he has an opinion etc.

I'm perfectly fine with based opinions, but how can I respect or listen to a person whining about something like a twelve year old who can't appreciate visiting the great wonders of the world because he can't play Tekken on his ps3?

I don't know why Fate/Zero sucks, but I can tell you why your post sucks.
