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.
Both have groups that build bonds over the time they spend together.
Both focus around a group of people fighting each other to obtain a God-like power. They both take place in modern day (more-or-less) and each character is given a special power to help them fight (Zero=Servants/Nikki=Diaries).
Fate/Zero is basically a prettier and way less convoluted version of Future Diary.
Both anime have a kind of competition of survival and domination. If they win, they'll get something that can change their life and the world..
The characters are given something special to use for the whole competition.. They might die in the competition too..
Both anime have genre of action, drama, fantasy, and good plot twist and character development..
I score both anime 10 (masterpiece)
Like survival? Like action? Like good OST and art? Then, both these series may spark some interest as they share the collected theme of capturing a reward upon winning a battle-royale between other characters. Both series has spectacular soundtrack as well.
•both animes are more or less just a bunch of people thrown/expected it to happen, into a game where they will have to battle others until there is 1 winner to obtain enormous power.
•both are different in the way they do battle, as in one the actual person/diary has to die, but the other there 'avatar' has to die, to make them lose and not be in the running to be the victor.
•both contain fair amounts of great action which motivates the viewer for a particular person to win, and a slight somewhat of romance, to also add a bit of humour.
•both animes are different in the way how they act out how to kill others aswell, with MN its dark/malicious/brutally murdering the intended party with mind games and backstabbing with lots of twists throughout the whole show, while F/Z is mainly just action and quick alliances, but it does have its fair share of dark/murdering/evil/malicious bits here and there.
•they are fairly similar in the 'battle royale'/'hunger games' sense that there is only 1 victor. but if you liked one you will possibily like the other.
>Both anime have a "battle royale" background, if you live, you win a great power, in the other hand if you die, you lose.
>Both have a lot of action, even if they are different in that, Mirai Nikki have a more realistic style (guns, knives etc), Fate/Zero fights are between GDR role (Saber, Archer, Caster, Lancer etc).
>I really enjoyed both anime, hope you will have the same fun if you decide to try them ;)
Both involve a survival game between a group of people aided by a supernatural power in order to win a near omnipotent power. They both feature a large variety of "players" with different motives to win. They both have fantastic, but very different soundtracks.
Both series involve characters fighting each other in a survival game and they must fight each other in order to win whether they defeat or even kill each other.
Both series can be very dark at times with characters facing difficult situations such as loss and death.
Each of the characters in both series have motivations to win and utilize the prize from the victory of the competition. However, within Fate/Zero, there is more emphasis on all of the participants yet in Mirai Nikki, there is more emphasis on Yukiteru and Yuno.
There is action within both series, yet Fate/Zero is much more fluent while Mirai Nikki is more gruesome. read more
Both animes have similar plot. They focus about death match and strange people that are participating in it.
In the Mirai Nikki, characters are fighting to become a god, while in Fate/Zero they are fighting for Holy Grail, which can make any wish come true.
Both shows are about a big survival game. One must fight to survive and beat the other parties to win. They both use a third party which aid the main character. One show uses servants and the other simply uses a overly attached yandere. Over time the main groups grow bonds as they fight for survival.
Both encompass a battle royal scenario where people are competing for some grand mythical prize. Both carry mature themes, but the stories for both are interesting. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
Although I personally wasn't a huge fan of Mirai Nikki, if you were into the battle royale that was Fate/Zero, you might enjoy Mirai Nikki's sometimes dark plot, with some interesting plot twists along the way.
They are shows with a battle royale setting, fighting to the death with the goal of having one lone winner granted with a seemingly omnipotent reward. The themes explored are of similar nature, a set of mature ones that involved the act of what is right or wrong. High tension and suspense are also similarities that both possessed when it comes to the battles.
I have to say, watching all the TV shows and movies out there, the premise with a fight to death is definitely compelling. With something to stake, your own life, and an award at the end in order to change your life or even the whole world, you are compelled to the characters as they dance to the tune of the game. Mirai Nikki and Fate/Zero are just that. With the endless action and compelling plot-line, I urge you to watch the other if you liked either one. Let the Battle Royale begin!
Both are created by the same writer, Urobuchi Gen, which shows. Homura and Kiritsugu share quite a few traits character-wise, and both shows deal with themes such as the nature of ideals in similar ways.
These are both brilliantly written animes from Gen Urobuchi , featuring beautiful animation and a breathtaking soundtrack from Yuki Kajiura. They may seem like they belong in completely different genres , but both Fate/ Zero and Madoka Magica are dark and deeply poignant tragedies that do an amazing job at exploring and deconstructing their respective themes.
These are both amazing stories in their own right and if you enjoyed one, you will probably love the other.
+ Dark, mature, and unique stories which aren't afraid to extend the boundaries of their genres (survival game for Fate/Zero and magical girl for Madoka Magica)
+ Gen Urobochi + Yuki Kajiura
+ Great animation and character designs
+ Interesting characters with unique motives, emotions, and interests yet you can still relate them to characters from other shows and see how well they fit into their stories
Both are dark and very mature anime. Both are written by Gen Urobuchi aka 'Urobutcher'. And both of the soundtracks in these two shows are composed by Yuki Kajiura. There's not much to say as it's best to watch either of these shows blind and if you are looking for a serious and dark anime, I would definitely recommend both of them. I also like to add that the main characters for both Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero share similar abilities. Both shows contain great psychological meaning in them and that's why I love them. But then again, this is only my opinion.
A group of morally gray characters, each shaped by their own different backgrounds and objectives end up engaging in a battle of ideologies, driven mainly by their desire.
Fate/Zero focuses more on the ideological aspect of its characters, while Madoka Magica dwelves more into the psychological side and how characters change over time. Both stories steadily grow darker in tone and bigger in scale, and they share writer (Gen Urobuchi) and music composer (Yuki Kajiura).
Both have a good character development, very VERY tragic moments and very tragic characters and a hidden antagonist (although, in Fate/Zero is clear if you watched Stay/night...).
Also written by the same author (Gen Urobochi).
The ethical theory of utilitarianism is dealt with very differently in both these shows, which is incredible given that both shows involved Gen Urobuchi. Madoka is a strong proponent for utilitarianism whereas Fate/Zero deconstructs it. Both have incredible soundtracks.
They have similar styles of writing, both being written by Gen Urobuchi. If you enjoyed Madoka Magica's dark mood, interesting themes, and good pacing, then you will likely enjoy Fate/Zero (mostly the 2nd season).
Both series were written by the same person (Gen Urobuchi), and feature strongly motivated individuals who form alliances with each other to confront destruction and despair, and very dark yet thoughtful narratives that comment on human nature.
Seriously, these two are a set. Gen Urobuchi created Fate/Zero and Madoka Magica at the same time, with the same thematic focus. There are so many parallels that can be drawn between the two worlds and stories. But of course, there is a major difference in the series that you will have to find out for yourself (otherwise, it would simply be a retelling). One is not complete without the other, so go on and watch both.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the year that Gen Urobuchi made two of his finest creations.
- Both Madoka★Magica and Fate/Zero are dark urban fantasy stories, presenting an atmosphere that mixes elements of horror with the manifestations of magic. The visual execution of this is different, especially given Shaft's eccentricity, but the essence is similar.
- While both works contain action and their scenes are definitely acclaimed, the most important portion of these stories lies in their dialogue and the clash of perspectives between the different cast members. It is worth noting the difference that Fate/Zero has a much larger cast than Madoka★Magica.
- Both animes carry with them deconstructions of pre-established values in the plot. As the truth is revealed to us, the basic concept at the beginning of the story undergoes a subversion of its meaning. This is also true of other works by Gen Urobuchi, such as Psycho-Pass, being a very present element in his writing style.
- Both works carry some morals and explore uncomfortable themes intertwined with the discoveries. In Fate/Zero, multiple ideologies associated with rulership and kingship are contrasted with Kiritsugu's utilitarianism, honorable conceptions, and other servants' free or chaotic ways of thinking. In Madoka★Magica, the story is illustrative of the collapse of innocence, presenting different reactions to the phenomenon through each character, the clashes between how each one conceives their philosophy and even reflections on acting as a magical girl.
- In particular, Emiya Kiritsugu and Homura Akemi are two characters with a very similar way of acting. Kiritsugu gives voice to utilitarianism and ignores honorable speech, as well as coldly and inhumanly making decisions much of the time. Homura also does this, especially when facing girls other than Madoka. For much of the work, she acts as a cold and expressionless, albeit self-conscious and rational, intervenor.
- Finally, both works boast of incredible Kajiurian music. Two of Yuki Kajiura's best performances are featured here, and you can recognize the fabulous epic lyrics in Kajiura-Go or even enjoy the sounds of Kalafina in both shows. read more
Both animes were directed by Gen Urobuchi
Heartbreaking, dark and crude
The characters face complex phsychological development and a lot of despair
Amazing fighting scenes
Incredible soundtrack written by Yuki Kajiura
Same director, same composer, both based of Type Moon novels, along with both containing a similar feel and atmosphere. Both have a mature history. If you like one, you will most definitely like the other.
Similar atmosphere with plenty of tragic characters; both take place in the nasuverse, though the stories themselves are very different. Heavy emphasis on dialogue, but good looking animation regardless.
Hail ufotable, hero of nasuverse!
Both series have similar art style and dark mood. A myriad of exchange of words between characters of various factions is only to be expected, and whether the dialogue is pretentious or philosophical is really up to the audience to decide. There are also a huge amount of gorgeous blade and magic action in both series. In the end, it is really no surprise that the two series are so much alike. They are both based on Type-Moon novels, produced by Ufotable, and have Yuki Kajiura as the music arranger.
You will see the best effects, drawing and styling at those two. Awesome fights, mystery, bright colors! It is a bit more magic and fights in Fate/Zero, while Kara no Kyoukai has more phiplosophical stuff and a bit detective.
• Both anime were produced by Ufotable, Aniplex, Notes,
• Both light novels were made by Type-Moon
• Music for both was by Yuki Kajiura
• Both had vocals by Kalafina (technically, this doesn't apply to Fate/Zero season 1)
• Both directed by Ei Aoki
• Kinoko Nasu worked on both
• Both fantasy-action genre
• Both very mature
I feel like I'm missing some stuff, but I don't think that matters at this point. If you enjoyed one and haven't seen the other, watch it. Be warned that Kara no Kyoukai is certainly not for children.
(switch the two anime around) Both are related to Type Moon, both are animated by ufotable, and both are scored by the one and only Yuki Kajiura (the music she did in Kara no Kyoukai is some of her best work). Both have great to amazing fights, and while Kara no Kyoukai has a slow start similar to Fate Zero, it will be really be worth it in the end.
They both do have one thing in common if not something, that is jaw dropping animation. Kara no Kyoukai is an anime series presented as 7 movies with animation that even exceed the animation quality of Fate Zero. Both are produced by Ufotable and how they managed to pull this off is beyond me.
Both have mature themes and violence with KnK moving towards more darker themes. It's a must watch if you liked the fate series, just be sure to watch the second movie as well before deciding.
They are the bests Ufotable's work . The animation for those two anime is one of the most beautiful that exists, and is very similar . In more, the universe is the same in both, so if you liked it and want to learn more about it, it's an opportunity .
Both are part of the Nasuverse, with many reference that one could catch when seeing both shows. Kara no kyoukai (also known as "the garden of sinners") is made by Ufotable, the same studio that makes fate/zero, they did a superb job on it as well. The main protagonist is also consider by many as a very good lead (similar to fate/zero main protagonist) and brings many interesting aspect to the show. Watching all seven main movies (1-7 in that order) would be a good choice after viewing fate/zero and fate/stay night.
Both take place in the same universe
- Both have a very dark and mysterious tone
- Both have badass MCs
- Both deal with magical elements
- Both have badass fight
- Both have great animation from ufotable
Heroes from legend are brought into modern day and meet up. Fate is a large series with many heroes looking back at their legends, Zero is the better part to be animated so far. Re Creators takes some fictional characters it made up and has them meet their creators and meet other genres.
Both of these series have the same director and they are both anime where powerful figures appear in the real world and fight each other. Fate Zero involves historical figures fighting for the Holy Grail while Re:Creators involves characters from various forms of popular media (anime/light novels/video games) fighting over the fate of the consumer world and the people who created them.
Re:Creators is directed by the same director as Fate/Zero, that being of Ei Aoki. His work continues to be phenomenal in this series, with his assistant director being that of Rei Hiroe, another amazing director. Though these 2 series are almost nothing a like, you'll enjoy the quality of Re:Creators because of Aoki's amazing direction.
How is this similar, you say? Okay, I have two solid points
First, it has the same battle royale thing going on with participants came from alternate reality.
Second, both of the series deal with a really heavy dialogue (or character drama, as some people say) to move the plot along with the action
As why I pick Fate/Zero over Fate/Stay night for the similarity lies in the visual as well, both are equally stunning in my eyes and both keep me on the edge of my seat until the end
Both revolve around the idea of powerful well known* characters that don't really belong in the modern world ending up in it. That then end up clashing due to a difference in ideals and goals.
*Re:Creators only contain original character so they are only "well known" in universe
F/Z has servants summoned by masters and ReCreators has a similar type of concept but the heroes unintentionally appears and originates from creators (e.g. manga writers in that anime's universe). Both have excellent build-ups and conclusions are sad to see knowing that you wont find another masterpiece in a similar niche as these two. Definitely worth rewatching and both have great OSTs which, depending on how much you're into the anime, can give you the "FEELS" factor.
If you ultimately became a fan of Fate/Zero because of its battle royale premise, then I'm pretty sure you're going to love Re:Creators. Both shows can fall in the "reverse isekai" genre but the major difference is the fact that characters from F/Z are famous personas based on true world history, while in Re:Creators the summoned heroes are from modern games only present in the narrative. Both of these animes also boast fantastic OST's and musical pieces to accompany the already well-animated battles. Both shows also exhibit a dark atmosphere and heavy dialogues, if that's also right up your alley.
Action Fantasy that full of intense battles having epic background music. While Fate/Zero brings out characters that are heroic spirits from the real world, Re:Creators brings out characters that are heroes from fiction.
Both Psycho-Pass and Fate/Zero share equally compelling main characters, who make you question your perspective; both anime also feature gory and dark atmospheres, courtesy of them sharing the same creator.
Both are mature anime written by Gen Urobuchi. The male characters are strikingly similar from each show. Kogami and Mashikima from Psycho-Pass mirror Kiritsugu and Kirei respectively from Fate/Zero extremely well. In their respective shows, they are men who are the same at the core of what they do but their goals clash and thus so do their similar personalities.
At the center of both anime is a rivalry between two men. Men that have never spoken to or met eachother, but know eachother better than anyone. They hate eachother, because they're similar. They hate eachother because they hate themselves. Yet they represent different ideals, nor do they truly understand eachother.
Both are written by the same author, have a similar feel to them, have similar characters and most of the story takes place in various encounters across a large city.
Both are written by Gen Urobuchi, and the enmity between Kougami Shinya and Makishima Shougo is similar to that of Emiya Kiritsugu and Kotomine Kirei, one that of similarity between both parties though they couldn't understand each other.
After finishing seasons 1 & 2 of Fate/Zero, I noticed themes similar to Psycho-Pass:
- written by the same author (Gen Urobuchi)
- both have a very dark atmosphere
- both have a very deep and well-written story
- both feature rivalries between 2 similar men with clashing ideologies
- both have a decent amount of action
- both make you question the morality of certain characters' actions
All in all, if you liked the dark atmosphere and great story of one anime, you will probably enjoy the other.
The tone of the first few episodes from both anime are very similar: gritty, dark, and focused on worldbuilding. Both series were written by Urobuchi and there's definitely a similar vibe to some of the dialogue: there's the subtle touching moments, shocking moments that reveal information about the world, and clashes of ideals. The rivalry of Kogami & Shougo and Kiritsugu & Kirei are similar because they both involve the characters knowing that they are alike deep down, but with different goals. Both rivalries are definitely more moral/ideal-based rather than extremely flashy.
Fate/Hellsing = Drifters.
Not quite the exact same premise but famous historical figures fighting each other on a death battle.. well you get the idea.
Both are action series but Drifters is more action and much less Philosophical and Ideal clashes than the Fate series.
Both are seinen series with Battle-royale theme between heroes that transported / summoned to different era / places. They share similar theme, but Drifters more gory and brutal while Fate/Zero is more focused on Heroic action for claiming holy grail ..
Both involve infamous people in the world who were sent somewhere to fight with each other. The fighting scenes are so intense and it makes you say "woooww". the most exciting thing is when you can learn a little about the history from them.
It includes for all fate series btw
Both are a survival anime, one with heroes fighting to the death, and one with Chinese animals (or something like that) fighting to the death. Both anime have them competing for something that grants any wish they want.
If you like Junni Taisen then you will most likely Fate Zero which is a much better and more deeper with much better characters in comparison.
1. Largely based on the same premise on killing each other in order to be granted a wish
2. Both action animes with dark themes
3. While characters in Junni Taisen are based in fitting on Chinese Zodiac Signs, Fate Zero is based on historical figures fitting in Servant Classes such as Rider, Archer, Saber, Assassin, Caster and Lancer.
These two has a very similar plot - a survival game where people have to kill each other. The one who wins the game may have a wish granted.
Of course people dies in both and there are good fights.
In my opinion, the characters and the animation are much better in Fate Zero.
Still, the plots are really equals.
Both shows have similar character types; like Saber from F/Z and Sharyuu, both characters are looking for a way to save people through fairytale like means.
Obviously these shows are battle royals, but they never really feel like they are, Fate/Zero is more character and ideology driven, and where they then realize they're going to have to crush someone else's dreams in order to achieve their own.
Personal note; I think that if you loved Fate/Zero, then don't watch UBW, just don't.
If you loved Zero's top notch, meaningful fights, then I promise you, you'll love Juuni Taisen's.
Plot revolves around characters facing off against each other and the winner gets a wish granted.
Quick pace, close combat fight scenes. In Fate characters resemble historical figures and in Juuni Taisen they are based on zodiac signs
Strong main male characters in Hei and Kiritsugu, both distant but powerful. 'Contractors' in Darker Than Black are the main source of supernatural power, whereas in Fate/Zero they come from a third party 'Servants'. Both have plots you can sink your teeth into and have a very similar feel to them, though differing plot.
Both shows set a pretty dark mood. There's death involved, which includes a decent amount of blood, which makes both of these shows pretty serious in comparison to shows that only have people getting beat up instead of actually dying. Both shows are set in the near future, where not many things have changed, but enough to where it definitely affects the plots of both shows. Both shows have a decent amount of action, and little to no comedy, but the great action and serious tone make for a great plot. So if that's what you're into, then watch it!
Both Anime have relatively dark plots and multiple twists
Hei has a very similar personality to Fate Zero's Emiya Kiritsugu
Both are not afraid to kill off characters
Based around a supernatural phenomena:
Darker than Black- Hell's Gate
Fate Zero- Holy Grail
->Urban fantasies with a dark and mature atmosphere;
->The main character can be considered an anti-hero;
->A large cast being explored in different focus;
->Fights in the city involving supernatural abilities;
->Interesting plot-twists and flashbacks.
Both of these series involve loads of chracters making intricate plans against each other for various motivations. There is action and a supernatural element in both. Code Geass has a lot of high school age characters while Fate/Zero mostly involves adults, and there are more not-so-serious episodes in Code Geass. Code Geass has mechs while Fate/Zero has swords and sorcery. But they both have more plotting and gambits than you can count. If you like that aspect of one, you'll almost certainly like the other.
In both anime the main character have a similar objetive, change the world. They know they can´t do it only with nice words so they are prepared to make sacrifices even if it means losing someone close they care/like/love.
Both have stories where strategy is a major factor and there are characters of conflicting ideologies who fight for what they believe in. Both have excellent animation if you like riveting fight scenes.
Set in a different world, where magic/alchemy is common. They are both fully packed with action, and are likely to leave you on the edge of your seat by the end of every episode. Whether you are looking for something with a similar plot, similar fights or something epic with that dark feel to it; Look up the other if you haven't watched it yet.
I can't see anyone liking one and disliking the other.
Both animes feature an outstanding plot and really great characters in a world of magic. Maybe Fate Zero is a bit slower, but some conversations between characters are simply remarkable, and I think that some characters (and voice actors) simply surpass FMA ones. But FMA is longer, and it's really epic.
Ok, this is going to be hard to explain, but first, I will and never compare brotherhood to a crap series. this series is good. Magic (Alchemy), well developed characters, world domination and survive of the fittest. Fate zero put in challenge the skills of their characters, fighting each other to achieve one goal. Same with brotherhood, where the alchemist, using their skill at their full, must uncover all the mysteries behind the ongoing events. Filled with mystery, thriller and action, these both anime wouldn't disappoint you.
Both series involve some mystical element whether that be full on magic users or a scientific form of modification known as transmutation. These series are, in my opinion, some of the best anime ever created with beautiful animation, compelling characters (both heroes and villains), with an excellent story. If you want to just laugh or chill then these series are not for you, with so many twists & turns these anime offer insightful questions about the essence of humanity. I simply cannot recommend both of these series enough because they are required viewing for anyone who enjoys great stories.
Both series use a non-medieval and interesting take with magic. Although, while FMA is in the 20s/30s, Zero is set in the 90s.
The Battle for the Holy Grail is much like the search for the philosopher stone except that it's more of a no holds barred tournament with very few rules.
Fate Zero's main difference is that it expands on the idea of kingship brought up in FMA Brotherhood and the cynical contrast to FMA's optimism.
Both are technical masterpieces--featuring beautifully animated fight sequences, sounds and scores. If you're looking for an amazing action series, look no further than these. Beyond the technical aspects, they are also both quite visceral in nature--raising the question of whether or not we need to abandon our humanity to defeat the enemy, and exploring the consequences of doing so.
If epic shounen-y shows with a healthy dose of well-thought out plot, angst-driven characters, and the theme of people battling forces larger than themselves, only to discover that the biggest obstacles are actually themselves, float your boat, then current watchers of this season's mega-epic must not miss (and likely have already watched) Fate/Zero, the only Type-Moon related series to receive a superb adaptation.
Toss in epic soundtracks created by two musical titans of the industry (Yuki Kajiura of .hack, Madoka, and SAO-fame, just to reference her most recent works; Hiroyuki Sawano of Sengoku Basara, Guilty Crown, and Gundam Unicorn epicness), and these two will go down as must-watches for the ages. read more
Far from your typical fantasy, both settings feature a cynical and often downright cruel setting that has the point of whether it is worth to become ruthless and set aside one's humanity for the greater good.
A large and variable cast is featured, that often resort to dishonest means to fight desperate and often pointless battles. There are tragedy elements involved in both shows and both also feature music from two famous and brilliant composers, Kajiura and Sawano.
Shounen battle shows that spend more time talking about ambitions, rules, and mechanics than actually fighting, making the plot and action even better since the viewer fully understands the importance and consequences of every move the characters make.
Similar dark setting with lots of strategic battles and an equaling amount of brutality-- perfect choices for those who are fans of grey and gray morality series. Also, there are a lot of likable and interesting characters in both series-- feel free choose your favorite.
Both series touch on quite interesting topics. They have deep characters with whom we can be attached or hate.
The most important thing is that at the time of the script, you can see that Fate / Zero is a seinen and HxH is a shounen. The second is less deep and less adult. But it can be understood since they are aimed at different audiences.
It is important to emphasize the fact that Fate is a complete saga and HxH is not.
So basically both series have people involved in some kind of "game". The servants in fate zero are similar to the game avatars in SAO because they both have abnormal super natural powers. The music for both of these anime are made by Yuki Kajiura
Both series have an emphasis on action with intense battles and impressive animation.
Both series involve a plot that surrounds around winning a game for the sake of survival (Sword Art Online) or gaining prestige or receiving a prize (Fate/Zero).
Both series have dark premises by dealing with themes of death and loss.
Character archetypes are somewhat similar such as Kazuto and Saber both being motivated individuals who wish to win and use swords.
The soundtracks for SAO and Fate/Zero sound very similar. Both are filled with great dramatic themes as well as light sad tunes. They are both of course composed by the legendary Yuki Kajiura. The two shows also have equally superb action sequences and animation.
First of all, Alucards voice actors in this series which I didn't know at first and boy there is irony and reminiscene when the character with Alucard's voice appeared.
If youve watched Hellsing I reccomend this sooo much butjust for fun the reason why i made this reccomendation was because,which you shuld just skip to for a sneak, of a scene six minutes into EP 8 there was a forest fight scene with the char with Alucards voice that made me just think back at hellsing and fights(nd see such irony).... like using a holy bayonet to block a barrage of bullets...so priestly *hint hint*
Episode 11 Watched that and It was another Hellsing moment when someone's noble phantasm was released. read more
The servant to master relationship is a very big part of both shows and each express dark themes and qualities. Alucard's nature and arrogance reminded me a lot of Gilgamesh for some reason as well. Furthermore, the catholic church is a massive part of both series. The characters were all very smart, and some of the tactical plots in both shows were genius and amazingly well executed. Additionally, each show is mostly based off of a war that was detrimental to society and the endings were very similar. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say any more, but I will say that both shows are some that I will highly recommend, and if you like one, your sure to like the other. read more
> the characters are mythical heroes from antiquity which you can only find in legends or true hisorical personalities ( but they still add to it ) and each has an own desire for fighting
> the main subject that links the characters is a 'War'
- Note : Hellsing Ultimate is much more gory than Fate/Zero and has waaay more action scenes.
Now Claymore is quite underrated but if you enjoyed complexities of the story line, the art style and delving into the world of human actions and emotions than Claymore in my opinion is a must watch. It has intense action with an intriguing plot that ultimately creates a great show. I have been trying to find anime similar to Claymore and this is the closest I have gotten.
“There never was a way out nor a means of salvation.” - Both series are very dark and and quite brutal at times. Likeable characters have a very real chance of dying or facing an even worse fate with evil reigning supreme. Furthermore neither of the two really employs fan-service or annoying comic-relief. (Waver+Rider-scenes in Fate/Zero and some of the scenes with Hellen in Claymore may be somewhat lighter than most of the rest, but neither feel out of character for any involved party and everyone always behaves in appropriate ways for the given situation.)
Other than that both series have nice fights (to those of Fate/Zero are clearly animated better) and awesome characters. read more
These animes are similar in the idea of calling upon another entity, either servant or stand, to aid in combat. In addition, both Fate/Zero and Jojo have beautiful color palettes, amazing writing, and great music. Not to mention that the action within both animes is phenomenal!Lastly, viewers can really feel engaged watching both animes. The scenarios presented in both animes are well thought out and make a viewer really think about how the event will play out and what tactics the heroes will employ in order to achieve victory.
Both animes are action packed and the power systems are servants (fate) and stands(JJBA) both Stands and Servants seem at least conceptually similar; they're both sort of extra-dimensional entities that can manifest in the human world to aid their masters in battle.
Both shows are action packaged series about some special people that get some kind of spirits that help them to fight each other, both protagonists (Jotaro and Kiritsugu) are merciless and badass dudes, that will do wathever it takes for archiving their goals
Both of these shows involve a ridiculous amount of plotting and tactical gambits. They both take place in a modern day setting, but both have a supernatural element involved. Fate/Zero has a lot more major characters and different motivations whereas Death Note has a 1v1 feel, but there is a life-and-death competition in both and plenty of suspense as you wonder what the characters have up their sleeve next.
Death Note and Fate/Zero. These two anime series had such an effect on me; I don't know where to begin. First off, both these shows had a huge impact on me and my morals. They made me think of life and the lives of others as well as the true definition of "justice" or if you prefer, "hero." Both series kept me on the edge of my seat like nothing I've seen before. They still come to mind when I make moral/everyday decisions, and they both plunge frightfully deep into the results of what we think is the right choice.
Moving away from the final message of the stories, the two relate in many more ways than what I have already described. The most noticeable similarity, besides, of course, the in-depth exploration of human nature, is probably the main characters. In both shows, the main protagonist is not truly defined until the end. In addition, both the antagonist and the main protagonist are seemingly evenly matched in levels of skill and intellect and fight each other in battles of wits. They each use their resources to the fullest, and slowly figure each other out as the series progress. They counter each other's moves almost exactly, and rival each other until the end. This is seen in each show, whether it be L vs Light, or Kirei vs Kiritsugu—they each spend most of the show figuring out their opponents' next move and planning ahead for their own.
Another similarity, moving back toward the moral aspect of the shows, is the whole idea of "saving the world." This is seen in both series, and of course really digs deep into the cause and affect of this sort of mindset. It totally explores the idea in-depth, the individual definition of the expression, and then exploits the efforts of the characters in pursuit of this ultimate goal in order to teach the viewer an important lesson. Both shows employ an extensive pursuit of this goal, and what is resorted to in order to attain this goal. They emphasize the results of the journey and the final destination of the pursuit, which is most definitely not what was originally expected or hoped for.
"In any case," as L would say, both series are some of my all-time favorites and I highly recommend both. They are truly life-changing, and if you enjoyed one, you will most definitely like the other. read more
Fate/Zero - This anime shares some similarities with Akame ga Kill!, such as its focus on battles and action, as well as its exploration of themes such as power and morality. It also features a diverse cast of characters and a complex and engaging storyline.
This anime title is similar to Akame ga Kill! in its themes of violence, action, and complex characters. It also shares a similar tone and atmosphere, making it a great choice for fans of Akame ga Kill! who are looking for a similar anime title to enjoy.
This also applies to Fate/Zero Second Season. Anyways, both series:
-Can tell a mature and intelligent story
-Have no fanservice, which goes along with the aforementioned mature story
-Are quite dark and suspenseful
-Have characters with complex motivations
-Are fantastically written and executed
-Have characters with a dark, complex, or mysterious past
-Although previously mentioned, both series have a shroud of mystery surrounding certain characters
-Have intense thriller moments
-Large amounts of characters dying
-Examples of anime at its fineset
The journey of a man with detrimentally strong ideals and an equally strong sense of justice, tormented by guilt and trauma, trying to achieve a lofty goal. When push comes to shove and lives are in danger, will he be able to stick to his beliefs?
Despite the divergent settings and plotlines, Fate/Zero and Monster share a common thematic thread in their exploration of the human condition.
Firstly, both Fate/Zero and Monster both delve into the intricate aspects of human nature and the human condition. While Fate/Zero explores the complexities of destiny, morality, and the value of individual lives, Monster delves into the darker corners of the human psyche, exploring themes such as the nature of evil, redemption, and the choices we make.
Secondly, nihilism, a philosophical belief that life lacks inherent meaning or value, is a prevalent theme in both Fate/Zero and Monster. The characters in these series confront existential crises and grapple with the futility of their pursuits. They question their purpose in life and the moral justifications for their actions, ultimately confronting the nihilistic void that threatens to consume them.
both Fate/Zero and Monster delve into the depths of human nature, questioning the essence of what it means to be human. They examine the complexities of morality, the ambiguity of good and evil, and the motivations behind human actions. These anime series explore the shades of gray within characters, portraying their struggles, desires, and conflicts that shape their identities.
Lastly, the driving force of each character's philosophy is a significant aspect shared by Fate/Zero and Monster. The characters in these anime possess distinct ideologies and personal philosophies that guide their choices and actions. Whether it be the relentless pursuit of a goal, the search for redemption, or the yearning for justice, the driving forces behind these characters shape the narrative and provide profound insights into their respective philosophies.
Considering these similarities, Fate/Zero and Monster offer compelling narratives that explore the depths of human nature, confront nihilism, and showcase the driving forces of the characters' philosophies. If you enjoy thought provoking anime with rich philosophical themes and complex character development, I highly recommend both these series. read more
If after watching Fate/Zero you were left wanting more in the way of 'Battle Royale' believable brutality and less in the way of circle-walky talking, then Basilisk is the anime for you!
Instead of Zero's premise of seven masters with seven revived heroes of lore (complete with 'middle-man' pace slowing rules overload) battling it out until only one pairing remains, in Basilisk ninja with superpowers (two sides, with ten on each side) every bit as powerful as those wielded by servants, quite simply, fight a desperate battle to the death; dying in quick succession. You can not get much more intense! In contrast, no-one really died at all in Zero until the last half, and even then it had an open-end for the visual novel 'sequel'. read more
Both are action anime about a group of people fighting one another to the death. In Basilisk it's about two ninja clans fighting to determine a successor to the shogunate while in Fate Zero it's about seven masters and their servants competing to win the holy grail. Both are action packed, have a fair share of duels, are very engaging and have great storylines. Also, both are very tragic.
* Different factions fighting each other both phisically and strategically.
* Battle royale between supernatural warriors.
* Mature characters, motivations and relationships.
* Multiple protagonists with different points of view, who interact between them.
* Adult oriented.
-Battle to the death between sides
-14 actual participants with many more involved
-Flashy action sequences
-Both feel kind of incomplete. Fate/Zero is a prequel while the X manga hasn't actually finished.
-X is to do with the end of the world while Fate/Zero is more to do with the battle for the holy grail.
-In X, there are 7 members on each side while in Fate/Zero, there are 7 teams of 2.
-X has CLAMP-like character designs which may not appeal to everyone. Fate/Zero has the Type-Moon designs which have a much more universal appeal.
Both have fights, magic, and are dark, each participant uses an unique skill for fighting. Fate/Zero relies more on the summoning of heroic spirits and X in magic and inner abilities. However, both are similar in some plot points: both deal with the concept of changing the world for good (or bad), both are tragic, and a deep message unveils in each chapter. If you enjoyed the war between dragons from the earth and dragons from the heaven, the holy grail war will keep you on the edge of your sit. Also, the artstyle is gothic in both series.
The plot is a bit similar (obviously cause both Anime are Type-Moon's work), the Animation (both ufotable), OST's and characters are reminding each other.
The scenery in both Anime is dark in one moment, but flashy in the other moment, it's also forcing you to think about several actions.
They are both shows with strong narratives and themes involving badass characters, action and a dark, crude story. The treatment of some of the darker themes is similar, and both shows are placed in the same setting and universe, with the same magic sistems. They are also made by the same studio and have stuning production values.
Both series have incredible (psychologically unstable) characters immersed in a dark storyline.
The main characters in either are seeking redemption, while fighting to stay alive. In both series you find yourself questioning the decisions of the main characters.
A warning though, Elfin Lied has much more gore and some nudity. The nudity usually has a purpose other than fan service or ecchi, but not always.
These shows are very different in many ways. I'd still say that the comparison is sound:
* Both shows are grim and brutal
* Some protagonists have extremely unsettling backgrounds
* Neither show starts out overly happy, and both keep getting darker
* Unlike Elfenlied with it's “read-the-manga”-ending, Fate/Zero has a great ending. (Note that great doesn't mean happy)
* The characters in Fate/Zero are less likely to make idiotic decisions
* Fate/Zero is a fantasy-anime that involves historic figures and magic, whereas Elfenlied is much more grounded in science and reality.
* Elfenlied mostly deals with young people (college-students), whereas the characters in Fate are almost all significantly older
I consider several of these things improvements over Elfenlied, which is why I recommend to give it a try. read more
If you like one, there is a big chance you will like the other. They are both amazing shows that take their time to get you into their world, but once they do you will be hooked and you wont look back. Protagonists share a lot of similarities, but saying anything more would be a spoiler. These series are epic and thrilling, with an amazing plot and a lot of plot twists. Definite recommendation to check them both if you haven't
You may ask how these two anime are similar to each other. The answer isn’t very obvious. Steins;Gate same as Fate/Zero is one of my favorite anime so far. Since watching both of them. I’ve came to conclusion that issues are pretty similar. Protagonist are dealing with life existential issues. They’re looking for perfect world where they can exist without worries. Main characters are seeking for the truth that isn’t evident.
For who I’d like to recommend watching Fate/Zero? Of course for people who are looking for dramatic experience based on character’s psychology. But all of you should give it a whirl.
both share the similar animation and art style, replace and remake casts in fate by master and servant with people with stands, they deal with betrayal, fate,amazing fights, trust and betrayal,and more
Both have some kind of tournament, where only one can be the winner and gain a special power. Fate/Zero (and 2nd season) is really serious, while Shaman King is more comical. And Fate/Zero is more violent than Shaman King.
Kiritsugu and the Phantom Thieves want to change the world through their powers (Servants in F/Z and Personas in P5) while opposed by their rivals (Kirei and Akechi/Sae/Law Enforcement) in a dark supernatural setting with actions that deal with certain and questionable morals and what is just and not just.
Both are about a battle enveloping the world showcasing various ideologies and how they clash.They are also similar in the way that heroes/kings join forces with powerful magic beings in order to shape the world in their favor.
Both shows feature similar brilliant plots and turn the journey of multiple main characters into a great story.
Both are thrillers.Both have numerous interesting and conspicous characters with no defenition of which is the main.Both have a fast pacing with something always happening but with quality dialogues as well.Both have supernatural elements and heroes with sad back stories.
They share two main strengths. There is the relatively big character cast, which gives enough screentime to every important character in a minimal amount of time and there´s the action sequences, which are even better, due to the very good animation in both shows.
The both of the main characters are the same prototype of a tragic hero. Seeing Okabe Rintaro is pretty similar to Emiya Kiritsugu in the aristotelian concept of a tragic hero, it's like i could see Emiya Kiritsugu living other story with different events.. I LOVE THEM BOTH
"Something tragic is an error caused by a character, who is not perfect and his punishment is treated as something greater than the crime, this crime is committed by the free thought of the character, but mainly due to fate. The character has a ruin, that ruin does not evoke an absolute despair in the character, since the choice of him led him to a pride that implies the consciousness of self-knowledge. The tragic event does not have to leave the audience emotionally devastated, according to Aristotle, a function of the tragedy is to evoke pity through a catastrophe."
This Aristotelian vision of how tragic a character can be is the point where all my emotions explode.
These types of characters, people who think that suffering in silence and solely for themselves for the sake of their loved ones, praying for a future in which they can find calm for everyones is something that simply surpasses everything I can appreciate nowadays. read more
So, essentially, the similarity between these is in protagonists. Okabe's behaviour and action patterns somewhat correlate with such of Emiya Kiritsugu. Also, both of them go through lots of crap to protect their loved ones that makes a huge impact on their minds.
Fate/Zero is a prequel to the Fate/Stay Night anime (all of three of them). They obviously share some of the same characters like Saber and Gilgamesh as well as similar themes such as what it means to be a Sei gi no Mikata
Emiya Kiritsugu like Spike Spiegel in looks but with magic has a dark past he cannot forget unable to make him move on serves as a mercenary for hire to free himself from his past.
I find Fate Zero to be Cowboy Bebop with magic and the only difference is that Kiritsugu is more ruthless and emotionless than Spike. His rivalry with Kirei is reminiscent to that of Spike vs Vicious because both rivals are the only characters who can kill them self proclaimed and in power.
Characters split in factions to compete for power in Bebop's case, it is bounty hunters and F/Z's case, it is magicians.
Though split in various ways and are focused, I find some F/Z's characters to be similar to Bebop's:

Fate/Zero and Yugioh GX are considered to be deconstruction of their perspective series even though Fate deconstructed it twice in UBW and HF. Both take a realistic and moral approach on what fictional beings are of and what the consequences are. Fate Zero is more darker than Yugioh GX but GX gets darker until in the later seasons.
The Fate series draws inspiration from mythology around the world while Mo Dao Zu Shi is a dive into Chinese mythology. Both series take their historical inspirations and transforms them into something exciting and explosive.
Both shows are excellent stories featuring magic with a dark twist, summoning spirits, spectacular fights, large casts, complex politics, and a universe with extensive lore. Complex character relations involve alliances, betrayal, and conflicts on both small and massive scales.
The art styles are both highly polished, and the animations are smooth and dynamic. The character and costume designs are detailed and beautiful. Both shows make use of CGI to enhance the visuals in the best way, blending environments, special effects, and traditional animation gracefully.  read more
Politics element, gray morality, established characters, main character that want to save people but kinda end up accomplished nothing but butchering what they have, have their own culture/ religion influence.
Started kinda light-hearted but end up went dark.
Both are survival anime and they're trying to kill other players. If you like the survival part of fate/zero you should watch Btooom. Btooom does not have the supernatural part but it has a great story too.
Both are tragic dark fantasy stories filled with violence and betrayal but also friendship. Both have men willing to do anything to reach their goal, men learning more about themselves and even a tragic romance. And both are pretty damn good.
Amazing battles of a similar nature and cool supernatural elements to boot. As far as action is concerned, Fate is on par if not superior to Bleach. The comparison comes from the style of the battles as well as the supernatural elements. Fate is also more mature than Bleach in its story and world (what I mean is that the story involves adults and more serious material as opposed to high school students).
If you enjoy watching characters that are based on historical figures then you might like to watch both, also, yeah... there's a coffee in the Holy Grail.
NTF is pretty much like F/Z just with mechas. It also had some predictable flat plot flag lines in the series.
-Both anime involves historical persona that are fighting each other. They even have some similar historical persons like Alexander the Great and King Arthur.
-They both involve a battle for the Holy Grail but in Nobunaga the Fool it appears in the last episodes.
Fate/Zero provides what an astonishing way to define each character based on what past they had experienced up to how they express a stance as to how they respond to it. It might distinct in storywise but Sebastian is Kiritsugu. While Fate/Zero is so tense each episode, Kuroshitsuji is more in an ambiance of humor.
Both series revolve around war and have a lot of awesome action scenes. Both contain scenes of thought-provoking dialogue that revolves around characters' different attitudes toward a subject. The characters in both series are composed of a variety of entertaining personalities. To a lesser extent, the characters in both series aren't necessarily good or evil but instead somewhere in between. Legend of the Galactic Heroes does a much better job of portraying its characters neutrally while in Fate/Zero it seems that in general everyone was leaning toward the evil side of the spectrum; they're similar in that neither follow the story of a good protagonist fighting against an evil antagonist.  read more
The characters of both series embody unique philosphies and ideals, being pit against eachother in an ideological battle royale filled with multilayered strategies and sudden betrayals.
In Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, several characters resemble real-life historical figures, while the cast of Fate literally includes reincarnated historical figures.
Both shows draw a lot of mythology and historical references in a contemporary setting with fictional characters.
What both have in common is the use of supernatural powers and spirits. Both are dark but Fate/Zero is depressing and gorier whereas YuGiOh is dark in general.
Characters in the series employ intelligence than action by using strategies and other methods to ensure their victory. Every character are ambitious into pursuing what they desire. Also the desire to change the world is one of the aspects both shows have.
As for character similarities, Gilgamesh and Kaiba have a lot in common despite being different characters.
Beautifully animated fights are the focus of these two eye candy anime. The backgrounds look beautiful, the animation is fluid, the character designs are wonderful. If you just want to sit back and watch some quality action scenes, these two are the show for you.
A contest only has one winner and in both series, the ultimate prize is up for grabs. Thus, both series has the battle royal theme featuring characters using their supernatural abilities to win.
There is plenty of action in both series and a cast of characters of stark personalities, goals, and ideologies. As episodes progresses, more truth is revealed as drama and dark secrets revealed.
While Fate/Zero lacks up romance, it makes it up for its stunning visuals. Both series also contain powerful soundtrack by the talented Yuki Kajiura. Both series are certainly something to remember by.
+ Dramatic survival game anime where the characters are masters of historical figures/mechanical beasts (Fate/Mai-Hime respectively) that fight against one another. The masters can also use magic.
+ Music composed by Yuki Kajiura
+ Great animation
- Mai-Hime takes a while until it gets into the survival game part and has much more filler and comedy as well as a school setting which Fate/Zero doesn't have
- Both anime have great animation using digital filter to make it even more beautiful.
- The two focus more on dialogues and interaction between the characters than on fights.
- Both have a great worldbuilding and story.
- Both series have large amounts of information that some people may find boring and others may find it interesting.
As a big fan of the two franchises, I say that SAO and Fate are similar, especially when it comes to Alicization.
- Both works mix fantasy with very well produced action scenes. Fate, however, is an urban fantasy, making these elements coexist, while SAO is a Sci-Fi, dissociating the virtual and fantasy world from the real and urban world.
- Both shows, although they have elements of action, have a substantially greater focus on the dialogues and philosophies that surround the plot. Fate/Zero, however, is more Character-focused, while Sword Art Online, in Alicization, is more Theme-focused.
- Both contain mature content, tense scenes and do not hide the dark elements in their narratives. Some scenes can be very disturbing to the most sensitive audience. Alicization, in particular, is a heavier arc compared to the rest of SAO.
- Knights of Integrity are very similar to servants. Each of them presents its own history, dictated by memories that guide its way of thinking, and philosophy.
- And, above all, both OSTs are composed by Yuki Kajiura, with a dominant presence of soundtracks in Kajiura-Go. There are even tracks shared between the two animes. For example, "Rule The Battlefield", in Fate/Zero, is part of the "Swordland" collection, SAO's classic OST. In parallel, "longing", in Alicization, is almost a remake of the second Opening of Fate/Zero, "To The Beggining". read more
Main characters in both anime need to make a lot of hard choices and abandon everyone and everything to achieve their goal.
While Kotarou's and Kirtsugu's personalities are different, their circumstances and way of saving the world is very similar.
Both shows are on darker and more depressing side, while not being tearjerkers.
tanya and kiritsugu are very similar imo, both psychotic, intelligent, pragmatic, sad middle aged man lol though tanya may be a little more umm energetic, if you enjoyed watching one, you should the other.
both animu have war and magic
-Lots of screaming
-Lots of dying
-Both the shows have a protagonist that is involved with assassination.
-Both have mother like figures who teach and raise the protagonist.
-Really touching story
-You will cry a lot.
-You will cry a lot. Again
-One has a potential harem while the other doesnt.
-Fate/zero has a fantasy genre
BASICALLY WATCH BOTH
- In Both series the female protagonist is a strong warrior who gets dragged in twisted battles that put her life in danger and must fight to survive.
- There is a decent amount of action with story building, a bit of mystery about the main character's past and a background story that connects the characters together.
- Both series holds tournaments as part of their story.
Eien no Filena also has some subtle romance and theme of dealing with loss of losing loved ones.
These shows feel very alike to me. Not only do they have the same composer (Yuki Kajiura), but they're both war stories told from various perspectives, both heroic and villainous, all of whom have their own agendas and reasons for fighting.
The main characters are both fighting for pretty much the same goal i.e. to bring an end to all wars, although personality-wise Madlax is a lot more like Irisviel than Kiritsugu.
In my opinion, "Fate/Zero" is much better, though I'd definitely say "Madlax" is worth watching too.
Both have fantastic visuals, soundtrack, art, and character designs as well as adapting some of the best LN in the works but not to the expectations of the fans who thought that the LN is better.
The MCs in both shows are OP and does not lose to any of their adversaries. What they have in common is their personality. mindset, strength, and preferred weapon. Magic is the biggest factor in both shows making you think that these two shows are uncanny in terms of similar themes and story.
Both are a darker take on their respective series with realistic themes. What they have in common are pretty much high caliber animation and visuals with better art and character designs. At times I can't help but feel depressing moments in both series. What they have both in common is deconstruction of what it means to be a hero.
Both are a darker take of their respective franchises with realistic themes in a real world with fictional elements. Plus they are considered to be a deconstruction except that Fate/Zero takes it in a more mature way than Digimon Tamers. Both are well praised and received from viewers and critics alike.
-Both are darker prequels of a big franchise.
-Both feature more mature characters.
-Both MC are cynical and have sad depressing childhood.
-Both focus more on building up characters; development, relations, background informations.
-Both characters seek a powerful mythical object; Key of the Twilight/Holy Grail.
-Both have less action but more well-made dialogues.
-Similar music (by Yuki Kajiura).
Both are dark stories set off from their main storylines that deal with emotionless and cynical protagonists fighting with evil means for their unjust cause. The difference is FZ is a prequel and CGATE is an interquel.
Both series are darker than the previous series and have to do with survival through wars. I found Mikazuki Augus to be the Gundam version of Emiya Kiritsugu plus his Gundam is similar to Berserker as well.
These two action pack anime have a with Battle-royale theme between other powerful warriors that are force to fight to the death. They also have a bunch of tragic characters that must rail against their humanity. These two anime also have plenty of action too.
Fate is a battle royale where you can summon great soldiers and kings from the past to help and the winner of the battle royale will get a wish of theirs granted to them.
GOH is a martial art tornament where people start to summon gods. and the winner will get a wish of theris granted aswell. GOH is not really good becuase the pacing ruins it, while fates pacing was really good and they did it much better.
The duels have the same aura there is a tactical thinking before engaging, it is not about raw power. With the weapons involved any misstep is lethal.
Characters rely on applying the right technique and/or tactics rather than their power level.
- Both MC must to survive from "battle royale" mode
- Both have similar prize (for Fate Zero is Holy Grail and for Platinum End is becoming God)
- Both MC have servant
- Both have countdown (for Fate Zero is 269 hours, for Platinum End is 999 days
- Both show have 2 cours
Pretty dark and epic, a “Zero” story that serves as the prequel but needs to be watched after finishing the main series for getting the best experience. Riku and Kiritsugu, the main protagonists of these two stories also have the same ideology of utilitarianism, willing to sacrifice the minority for the sake of the majority and would do anything in order to achieve their goal.
Stories darker and edgier than their respective main series, with some known characters appearing with a new twist on them. The protagonist in either story is someone who was previously only a side-character. Between all the darkness there's a small bit of hope.
These anime (Code Geass, Shingeki No Kyojin, and Fate/Zero) deal with this one-question sacrifice? Does the sacrifice of a certain amount of people's lives, help in making the world a better and nicer place to live in? One thing I learned from these anime, is that if you have a goal in life you have to make plenty of sacrifices. Sometimes those very sacrifices can hurt you deeply but continue moving and marching forward to the dream you have. We should learn from our mistakes but should not despise them, as those mistakes and experiences are what make you right now. As there are mistakes, sacrifices, and grief in life, they are what make life imperfect. In Manier times a life of difficulty, despair, and sorrow is what leads one to live a legendary and exciting life. These anime impacted me hard and made me learn a few things about life as well. read more

Now now now let me explain the similarities between Nanatsu no taizai and the Fate franchise. Both shows have really similar characters, for example Ban really made me think of Gilgamesh with their greedy personalities and overall chaotic neutral vibe and King made me think of Waver because of their laid back and soft character. Now to the obvious, both shows are centered around wars the holy grail war for Fate and the holy war for Nanatsu no taizai which are about medieval looking dudes fighting against themselves. And last of all both Mcs (Meliodas and Kiritsugu) have profound and sad backstories that lead them to be similar people.  read more
Fate/Zero has magic and Fullmetal Alchemist has alchemy. Magic and Alchemy aren't exactly the same thing but they are pretty similar. Both shows also have Homunculus. These two shows are also relatively dark and share the themes of war, idealism/morality and Hope.
First of all they both have a similar plot in that both are centered around servival of the best.
They both revolve around the characters reciving aid from an ally that is more powerful then themselves.(fate zero is reserected magical super spirit people while beatless is androids with hyber andvanced ai and abilities)
they both have a very interesting cast that all have their own objectives and desires out of these events.
finally they both have many different interesting and changing relations between each character (for fate both spirits and humans, for beatless both android and human)
if you loved fate zero based on the knowledge about the each hero background and love to know about the history and what the power he/she have in the past, campione too will be great for another choice, you will be caught off by the epic story among god and their super-existence and their war to each other, cause the campione is a story about bunch of people who fought each other and fighting the god for capturing their power. And all i say both anime represent about the fighting of god.
Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha is relatable to Fate/Zero due the main character nature. Kiritsugu resembles, somewhat, this greatest world assassin by also being an skillful person while coming to contracts and "hitman" portfolio. Important to be said that, yet, Fate's mc seems to be more carrying and does have a slightly clearer goal, although, kinda distorted and idealistic unlikely to happen. I don't know much about the "Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha" development but both figures have some serious chaotic neutral alignment, after all, there's hardly any ego traits in their persona, making hard to them being their judges besides using logical reasoning. In the end, most of times, they can only be slaves of something and doesn't like much the trouble dealing with emotional behaviour. Regardless, both animes seem to deal rly good with "seinen fantasy" genre (still, interesting to mention, I did notice some evident sensualization in the more recent anime which is rare to find in Fate/Zero- even so, a common trait in the rest of the Fate franchise). read more
This anime serves as a prequel to "Fate/stay night" and explores the events that led up to the Holy Grail War. Like "Fate/stay night," it features intense battles, complex characters, and themes of morality and justice.
Although these series aren't terribly similar in terms of setting or plot, what links them together is their fights. If you, like myself, believe Fate/Zero to have some of the best fights in all of anime and craved more even after watching other installments in the Fate franchise, Mukou Hadan is the anime for you. Everything about the fights within this movie whether it be the animation, the choreography or even the directing is just as phenomenal, if not more so than Fate. If awesome fights that go above and beyond your typical shounen match are your thing, Mukou Hadan is worth watching.
These two anime may have different plots, but they have a similarly dark atmosphere and similar themes in their stories. They both focus on the idea of whether or not we need to abandon our humanity to defeat the enemy. They are both filled with action and violence too.
Dark series where individuals are chosen to fight to get their wishes granted via proxy battles. The question of what it means to win plays a prominent role in both series. Cliffhangers in the finale force you to watch the second cour.
These anime are just....sucky. Of course they are both fantastic series, but are set in a fatalistic world that is really really sucky for everyone; breaking free isn't hard, rather it's impossible and laughably futile. The main difference in the nature of their worlds is that at least in Fate/Zero the illusion of hope and light is cast....in Ergo Proxy it is never present at all. The themes and focuses are quite different between the two worlds, but both hold their own as solid watches. Ergo Proxy is more Greek-inspired (see Oedipus) and Fate/Zero is more 19th-century-Germany-inspired (see Nietzsche, Goethe's Faust, The Ring Cycle).
* Both are darker more violent prequels to (arguably) less interesting anime
* Both are stunning both visually and soundtrack wise
* Both have been considered to be the best part of their respective series
* Both have been regarded as the best anime's of all time
Fate Zero and Rahxephon have what's in common:
-Both have reconstructed elements that were derived from the deconstruction of a certain series (UBW and Evangelion)
-Stories that revolve around the war that pits between humans and fictional beings
-surprising and unexpected deaths
-have both a seemingly positive mood and a more importantly dark mood
Fate/Zero has some sort of spiritual/virtual figures made real which are called Servants, Fantasista Dolls have servants called Fantasista Dolls.
Both anime has the character who handles their servants to be referred as "Master". Plus,in both anime, the servants can be called at will.
Both anime has their servants fighting for their masters.
The difference between them is that Fantasista Doll is more children friendly..
Most anime typically concentrates on one point of view, the main character. However, these two anime jumps around to several points of view throughout the main cast. Durarara has several episodes revolving around a different side character while Fate Zero doesn't really have a main character so it hops around between the main cast. Both excel in their characters too, by the way.
Epic battles with masters and magical servants are basically what builds the background for both series. The characters are summoned from another world/time to fight in a war until the last one standing in order to achieve some goal.
Both shows are produced by Ufotable and if you saw either one of them, check em out! They both have magic, weaponry, light hearted moments but at the same time dark as well, points that will change the story forever as well, romance, and drama.
Emiya Kiritsugu and Setsuna F Seiei are similar in character, personality, and a desire to achieve world peace by any means necessary (Emiya Kiritsugu-Saber and Holy Grail and Setsuna F. Seiei-Gundam and Celestial Being arm intervention)
Emiya Kiritsugu is similar to Heero Yuy as well as Irisviel to Relena. Characters in both shows shed blood for their desires such as peace, greed, etc. Fate Zero however is much more darker and has horror and deals with sorcery and warriors whereas Gundam Wing deals with mecha and a modern tone. There's a sense of pacifism in Fate Zero other than in Wing.
A lot of drama, suspense, and action involved as well as revelations. Christian references is used in both shows as well. Emiya and Shinji are in a quest which involves similar conclusions as well as bloodshed which will impact their lives forever.
It's about 7 heroic spirits with diferent abilitys (7 ghost in 07 Ghost) chosen to fight in the war of the Holy Grail to obtain a power (eye of michael) which grants a miracle (the power), it has action, magic, etc
It may be a stretch to compare these two titles, since Hetalia is so silly and nonsensical while Fate/Zero is so dark and intense; however, both of them are anime that give history lessons while simultaneously entertaining the viewer. While Hetalia involves countries and their history, Fate/Zero (along with its alternative versions) involves various historical figures.
-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.
-The last one standing is granted a wish and/or physical prize.
In some ways, I find both of these series to be similar in which a human and their partner fights to accomplish their ultimate goal. Both series also have plenty of action although involving different themes.
Both shows are dark, suspense, twisted, and light hearted moments but at the same time not happy. Both shows are in the same season format meaning they cover the first half episodes leaving a cliffhanger ending.
Both are centered on characters who have different desires (7 magicians and 7 servants) and (Naruto's, Sasuke's point of view and Akatsuki's) that involve conflict regarding wishes and desires that paces throughout the story only to be twisted by certain events that will change the story forever. Fighting in both shows aren't just action packed but methodical and strategical plus it is at the same level. Swordplay and other types of weaponry (mostly long range) are heavily involved.
If you like Fate/Zero, you may want to enjoy FF because FF and Fate are alike. Both have real life setting embedded with fantasy elements. Dark atmosphere envelops the series with serious characters. Swordplay is one thing that you can expect the most because people are big into swords than just guns which too are in both of them. You can enjoy the rivalry of Kiritsugu/Kirei as similar to Cloud/Sephiroth plus the way the develop throughout the series are the same despite having different backgrounds and backstories.
Another high quality anime with the exception that Ufotable has a more visual and aesthetic look that transcends beyond animation quality. Fate/Zero is as dark as Devil May Cry and it too deals with supernatural elements, monsters, fantasy, weaponry, and action. Both show's pacing are at a similar rate until they reach to the conclusion where everything gets climatic until the very end.
D-Gray Man too like Fate/Zero is dark but the only exception is that it is shounen. Naruto/Bleach/One Piece are hated so it's not worth wasting time on the big 3. D-Gray Man and Fate Zero heavily involves with Western and Catholic themes. Supernatural elements and weaponry are a major part of the story. Yes there are major deaths that occur throughout the story as well as dialogue and moments you won't forget.
Supernatural elements and fantasy setting are alike with the exception that Fate/Zero is seinen as opposed to YuYu Hakusho's shonen theme. Despite all that, fighting may be action packed but at the same time its methodical too as fight progresses.
The Signers and Masters have whats in common: marks and fictional servants either a monster or a warrior. The Dark Signers Arc is identical to the Holy Grail War due to gathering number of warriors to fight for the ultimate prize and sacrifices are made in order to achieve that certain goal. Catchy dialogues and action pack occur throughout the story that affects the pacing towards the conclusion. The main difference is that 5Ds is shonen but is darker and mature than it's predecessors and its current successor whereas Fate Zero is seinen due to violence.
Both are made by Ufotable and the animation quality is at the same level. Fate/Zero is better than TOS because Fate/Zero stays true to it's story but watching TOS is worth it since both the Fate Series and TO Series are highly alike due to magic, swordplay, and fantasy setting.
This show is also a Type-Moon work. The series both have very strong and profound characters, both have romantic themes, and both have fantastic music. However, Fate/Zero seems to have better animation.
1. Magic exists in both worlds, but only certain people can utilise it. The magic in both anime also require some form of sacrifice before the magician can equip it (i.e., tools that civilisation use in Zetsuen no Tempest, magical power in Fate/Zero)
2. The two main male protagonists in both anime seek completely different goals. However, in Zetsuen no Tempest, the two protagonists are friends. Also, all four characters from the respective anime are really intelligent.
3. A lot of planning and plotting are involved in both anime. All the planning and execution are really intriguing and entertaining.
What is common in both shows=prequel to the main series. It covers both of the main characters past and the events that led to it. Kiritsugu and Kenshin are cold blooded killers who experienced a tragic past even in the show as well only to end up having their lives changed through their loved ones as well as making enemies who will hunt them down. Blood, violence, and gore are seen in both shows and are well animated and written.
Vash and Kiritsugu have horrible pasts which led to to a perilous battle to fight to save the world. Trigun has comedy and seriousness whereas Fate Zero is pure seriousness. Not to mention both have major deaths tolling along making the story even darker than ever. Both have guns as well.
This is also a masterpiece by the same scriptwriter, Urobuchi Gen. It is similar to Madoka in a way that both are twisted. The art is arguably better in Fate/Zero and, most of all, it is, like Madoka, a destroyer of people's opinions.
Fate/Zero is actually a prequel to Fate/stay night so naturally, people were not expecting much when Ufotable announced that they would make a prequel anime based on Fate/stay night.
And, like how he did with initial Madoka fans, Urobuchi proved them wrong.
Go watch it. If you enjoyed Madoka not for the cuteness (actually if you enjoyed it for cuteness you would hate Madoka) then this anime will suit you.
Make Urobuchi crush your tainted wishes again! You'll get my reference after watching the show. read more
Both have an interesting concept of magic, used in pursuit of obtaining something that holds immeasurable power/potential. In Tsubasa Chronicle the items are Sakura's feathers, and in Fate/Zero the item is the Holy Grail. Honour and insanity among the different characters are constantly coming into conflict to bring forth an engaging plot line.
I also found that both their OSTs have similar feels/styles. If you like OSTs from one of these animes you'll certainly enjoy the OSTs from the other.
I began watching both series with the same expectation, a bit of simple, somewhat silly, guilty pleasure action. However both series develop a surprising amount of sophistication and intensity that the initial introduction to the theme would not lead you to expect. Both series have regular gripping combat scenes, and despite an initial impression of simplistic personalities, develop very engaging and unique characters. Both these series manage to take seemingly juvenille and cliche concepts to create an engaging and unique story.
While very different in story and setting, both are very similar in style. Both have mature, complex stories and characters. Both and very serious and grim in tone, having minimal to no comic relief and absolutely no fanservice.
Both have people with magic/powers that could lead to disasters
They both have some kind of 'family' blood line (Vongola has the vongola blood line, magician blood etc)
Fate/Zero has more 'pairing' relationships, whereas Hitman Reborn has a lot more grouping.
Fate/Zero has 'Classes' and Hitman Reborn has 'Flames'
Overall, they're both great series, noting that Fate/Zero has a bit darker side to it.
(Personal opinion: All their openings and ending songs are really great)
Black Bullet somehow reminds me of Fate/Zero
Both anime needed a Servant (Fate/Zero)/Partner (Black Bullet) in order to survive and defeat their enemies. As much as "dark" as Fate/Zero they strive to find Justice in a cruel world, not being able to find time to have fun or love they have no choice but to fight to live. One by one they lose people close to them, people who are important to them. And somehow Rentaro reminds me or Saber, because Saber sacrifice a lot of things for her country despite that she's being hated by her own people, Rentaro choose to be feared by his own team because they we hesitating to fight which is not necessary when they’re in a battle.  read more
Both animes consist of characters being forced into a survival/death game. The ones competing in DW fight on their own behalf, however in the fate/zero, those chosen to participate have heroic spirits they summoned to serve as their servants.
-Both female main characters have good hearts and a strong, and are some of the awesomest female characters you can find in anime
-Both have epic fights
-Lots of lead characters and support with good development
.Both is a very good anime
Fate/Zero is darker and have many adult male character . Toaru Railgun have mostly girls.
Story-wise, the Shiki and Fate/Zero aren't all too similar. However, they explore the darker side of human nature, with morally ambiguous characters and no clear answer to who's right and who's wrong. Both series start off slower (*COUGH COUGH F/Z EXPOSITION*) but build steadily towards tense and thrilling climaxes.
It's not a tournament with a wish granted in the. Instead, it is a group of high schoolers forced into a a game where they must kill their opponents, their reward is their freedom, and they too fight to find a way to thwart this fate.
They are both about a story of someone betrayed by the world. In Gankutsuou, Edmond is betrayed by his friends and was made to suffer as a result. In Fate/zero, Kiritsugu was betrayed by someone close to him that caused the death of the ones he loved. They both kill and in exchange for their lives set out to change and bring the world that betrayed them back to it's rightful self.
Both contain a supernatural element that they use to aide them in their quests.
