In the American city of Snowfield, a new Holy Grail War is about to erupt. Such ruthless confrontations pit against each other magic experts known as magi, who ascend to the status of Master by summoning Servants—heroic spirits of the past. The winner is thought to have any one of their wishes granted.

However, it appears that the organization behind the present situation has merely managed to create an imperfect copy of the Third Holy Grail War. As the unusual ritual catches the attention of the Mage's Association in London, Flatt Escardos, the young apprentice of Lord El-Melloi II—a former participant of the Fourth Holy Grail War—travels to Snowfield and, to the great dismay of his teacher, joins the ranks of the Masters.

In this fake conflict where the line between Masters and Servants is blurred, the different factions will have a hard time preventing the city of Snowfield from plunging into total chaos.

Look it's a TV Special. It's practically the prologue for the upcoming Fate Strange Fake Anime Series. Episode 0 we can say.
Let's not expect much of a conclusion from this. Was it good? Yes, it did its job introducing the Servants, Masters and our Boy Gilgamesh.

Storywise, I'd say it did a very interesting take on the Holy grail war, a war based in AMERICA? Why has this not been done before?? I think it was a great introduction for the characters, obviously not a lot shown, understandable given its very limited runtime but its enough. And the voice acting is AMAZING. But easily ...

Mixed Feelings
Admittedly I wasn’t aware this was a prologue/introduction for an anime (which has only just been announced as of writing this), so I was a bit confused by the methodical pace when watching. After all, Fake was apparently an April Fools’ joke that was made real, so I was expecting a little cheeky hour-long animation of that and that’s it. But this felt like it was taking itself as an actual story seriously, which I think is (ironically) a funny way to present jokes like this.

However, I was admittedly confused at everything that was going on. Almost everyone speaks verbosely, terms are thrown ...

The whole Fate franchise is annoyingly overrated. All it has going for it is truly great art. As for the rest of it, each arc or whatever spin off is just a pile of total shit. The stories are overhyped over the top cheesy trash. The characters are borderline idiotic or completely idiotic. The dialogues are the worst. Absolute nonsense. Pretentious bullshit.

This franchise is a good example of how low anime audience has dropped in quality and its ability to see what's good or not. How the fuck does this shit get a rating over a 5 is beyond me. To whom does this even ...
