Synopsis

The Holy Grail War is a battle royale among seven magi who serve as Masters. Masters, through the use of the command seals they are given when they enter the war, command Heroic Spirits known as Servants to fight for them in battle. In the Fifth Holy Grail War, Rin Toosaka is among the magi entering the competition. With her Servant, Archer, she hopes to obtain the ultimate prize—the Holy Grail, a magical artifact capable of granting its wielder any wish.

One of Rin's classmates, Shirou Emiya, accidentally enters the competition and ends up commanding a Servant of his own known as Saber. As they find themselves facing mutual enemies, Rin and Shirou decide to form a temporary alliance as they challenge their opponents in the Holy Grail War.

Fate is known and respected by many but even with all the love it gets, I still feel like this show is not praised enough.
From amazing visual effects to incredible animation, everybody is aware that this series is beautiful. However something that's not being talked about enough is how amazing the OSTs are, how good the concept of the show is and how well its written especially compared to other shows that set the bar for "amazing animation". This show doesn't only give you visuals.

The narrative of the story is predictable but has plenty of plot twists, and when I say "predictable" I mean ...

Well, I suppose Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works isn't the worst anime I've ever seen. I mean, the story is pretty decent, if you're into that sort of thing. You've got your typical hero who's destined to save the world, a bunch of other characters with their own agendas, and a whole lot of fighting. It's not exactly groundbreaking, but it's good enough to keep you interested.

As for the main characters, they're...nice. I mean, they're not exactly the most memorable bunch, but they're not terrible either. You've got your brooding protagonist, your spunky heroine, and a bunch of other characters with their own quirks. They're ...

Where is the story? After completing it on the strength of the animation alone, I realized Shirou has so little personality that my brain somehow achieved the unprecedented feat of learning muscle memory, as in whenever this garbage character's mouth began to animate, my brain shut off and went on a vacation to something, anything more interesting, such as summoning memories of corporate meetings with interns freshly out of university who only know how to say "synergy, win win, vis a vis, breakeven point".

I could maybe tolerate this garbage "protagonist" if the plot is actually interesting, but the plot can be described as "hack ...
