In the midst of the Fifth Holy Grail War, Caster sets her plans into motion, beginning with the capture of Shirou's Servant Saber. With the witch growing ever more powerful, Rin and Archer determine she is a threat that must be dealt with at once. But as the balance of power in the war begins to shift, the Master and Servant find themselves walking separate ways.

Meanwhile, despite losing his Servant and stumbling from injuries, Shirou ignores Rin's warning to abandon the battle royale, forcing his way into the fight against Caster. Determined to show his resolve in his will to fight, Shirou's potential to become a protector of the people is put to the test.

Amidst the bloodshed and chaos, the motivations of each Master and Servant are slowly revealed as they sacrifice everything in order to arise as the victor and claim the Holy Grail.

Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works] Season 2 not only maintains the momentum set by its predecessor but also escalates the narrative to thrilling heights.

In contrast to the measured pacing of the first season, Season 2 catapults viewers into a whirlwind of events and revelations. The dialogue takes on a new dimension of depth, with meaningful conversations that not only drive the plot but also provide insight into characters' motivations and ideologies. The series manages to strike a ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my favorite route, well there aren't many. The loveless shonen route (Rin), the edgy route with the school days vibe (Sakura), the story of Wattpad (Saber).

Bad points, the villains don't mean ...

I've talked about ufotable's Fate franchise before way back when I reviewed Fate/Zero. This one came out in '14 and '15. I'll be looking at both series together for this review and the prologue. Keep that in mind. Let's get right into it.


Our tale is set roughly ten years after the events of Fate/Zero. A new holy grail war is beginning. We open with Tohsaka Rin summoning Archer, though she wanted Saber. She goes to the school and discovers a barrier being erected. So, she goes to investigate it at night and finds the servant Lancer there. Her classmate, Emiya Shirou gets caught in ...
