After a mysterious inferno kills his family, Shirou is saved and adopted by Kiritsugu Emiya, who teaches him the ways of magic and justice.

One night, years after Kiritsugu's death, Shirou is cleaning at school, when he finds himself caught in the middle of a deadly encounter between two superhumans known as Servants. During his attempt to escape, the boy is caught by one of the Servants and receives a life-threatening injury. Miraculously, he survives, but the same Servant returns to finish what he started. In desperation, Shirou summons a Servant of his own, a knight named Saber. The two must now participate in the Fifth Holy Grail War, a battle royale of seven Servants and the mages who summoned them, with the grand prize being none other than the omnipotent Holy Grail itself.

Fate/stay night follows Shirou as he struggles to find the fine line between a hero and a killer, his ideals clashing with the harsh reality around him. Will the boy become a hero like his foster father, or die trying?

Mixed Feelings
So, I just revisited the original anime adaptation of Fate/Stay night by studio DEEN, and let me tell you, it's quite the ride. I personally gave it a 6/10, and honestly, I don't think it deserves all the flak it gets. Let me break it down for you.

First things first, let's talk about the animation. Sure, compared to some of the slicker adaptations that came later, it might not be mind-blowing, but for its time, it's pretty darn impressive. Remember, we're talking about a show that came out a while ago. So, cut it some slack, people! While it might not reach the visual heights ...

I love Fate
That's why I don't like 2006 adaptation.

Fate Stay Night 2006 isn't bad.
But now, when there is UBW adaptation, better watch ...
