Fate/Zero has got to have a spot on many people's favorite anime list, and I am no exception to that. Needless to say, when I saw that a sequel/spin-off OVA to the series was announced, and produced by studio TROYCA no less, I was excited to check it out. I decided to see what it had to offer, and I have to say, I had fun with this episode.

Bad stuff first: its story is not really anything to write home about, and it can be summed up in one sentence. Waver Velvet is disliked by his co-workers, superiors, and successor to the point where they read more

The Case Files of Lord El-Melloi II, Episode 0: A Grave Keeper, a Cat, and a Mage. Let's just call it the Case Files Special. This is an introduction to the upcoming Case Files anime, which is scheduled to premiere in July of this year.

The story itself is relatively self-contained, and there is not much to comment on. It is a singular special episode meant to introduce the series, after all. Which it does exceptionally well.

TROYCA have knocked this animation out of the park. Ufotable are the long-standing vanguard of Fate adaptations (just check out the latest Heavens' Feel movie), but Troyca has read more

Fate/Zero is my all-time favorite anime and Iskandar (Rider) is one of my most favorite characters. He greatly influenced his weak-willed master Waver Velvet and taught him how to live freely with head held high. This anime features the adult version of Velvet in a kind of detective setting. So I was naturally intrigued and gave it a try.

Artwork is mind-blowing. Both character design and the background art are awesome.
The action sequences are well-animated.

As a prologue of the upcoming TV series, it didn't do that well to pique my interest.
So far, I am not sure what to expect from the following TV series.

Reviewer's note: This is my 19th entry into the Fate franchise.

✪ Genre: action, contemporary fantasy, magic (spellcasting), seinen, superpower

◧ Animation: the series roughly follows the character design standards set by the previous studios, a combination of colors of moderate to low saturation/moderate illumination with the internal and external environments being more muted comparison. Even though the characters seem distinct enough, the series' entire 'atmosphere' feels a little more muted than usual.

◧ Character development: one episode cannot suffice in order for me to make an assessment, but the protagonist's character traits, temperament, self-image are roughly outlined through his interactions with some of the deuteragonists and through read more
