Wow another 40+ episode! Another episode though didn't get to see enough but whateves. OP was good but I like the ending a little more.

Is the next episode 40+ too?

Just wondering.. Isn't this more or less a rerun of FSN? (I'm asking, not baiting)
I mean, it's the same MC (with the same VA), the scenes seems (mostly) like copies of the old
one, possibly with a little better art.

I was hoping they at least ditch that MC (at least if he still behaves like in FSN), because that gets
annoying pretty fast.

All 3 scenarios of FSN have the same first 3 days. But you have already seen one major difference with FSn2006 and clearly way MORE exposition that the 2006 version.

It's not just simple criticism, it's totally throwing characters like Shirou and situations under the bus before even giving it some time to explain itself more. So if he's going to falsely accuse characters like Shirou, I'm going to use my knowledge of the VN to defend him. I would love to spoil everything for him and write a very long essay about it, but this is an episode 1 discussion thread so all I can say basically without spoiling too much is, "wait and see."

Also you do realize that he was criticizing scenes that made perfect sense like "Why Lancer didn't behead Rin" and "Saber going to take the enemy with leaving wounded Shirou behind"? I explained why his criticism of that was wrong in those points.

If you can't take my rebuttal, then too bad, this is a discussion thread after all. I'm not letting stuff like that slide. You can criticize, I can defend. That's just how it is.

Don't waste your effort. I imagine they're not joking when they say they stop reading.


Ya, that would probably be a good idea. I made my point anyways, so there's not much of a reason of going any further forward.

Also looking over Rinth post again, I noticed something that I don't think happened in the set to Heaven's Feel.... I could be wrong though...

Not enough monolgues from shirou

Looks amazing as expected, saber's appearance and Gae Bolg was orgasmic.

I'm personally happy I never watched the movie in '06, only the TV series.

This is extremely, extremely addicting. The fight scenes, even if I know what's going to happen always really bring me in with the solid OST, sound effects, and animation. This is like candy to me.
Nop.

I feel the opposite, I like her voice a lot.


I like Sakura's voice a lot better here than I do in the VN. She just sounds different to me, not as high pitched I guess?

Such an amazing first episode to follow-up from the prologue. Fight scene and the summoning scene was done very well. Looking forward to the next episode indeed which will be an awesome scene. But the minor details being thrown into the show really ups the ante in quality for the show so far.

Do you really want to compare voice acting with a difference of 8 whole years?

As long as it isnt Inoue Orihime or Bossun's sister I have no problem.

Thanks. :)
I wasn't sure if it was worth picking it up because they were really similar (I've seen FSN and FZ),
although the prologue was nice anyway. I guess I'll be giving this one a chance then.

I kind of have the same feeling. It sounds way better here, but then again the VA is probably much more experienced now then she was then. She's probably a pro at using Sakura's voice now

You're trying to trick us!!!!! ;)

Anyways, I don't know. Maybe you imagined it that way because it would have been more badass? To tell you the truth, I kind of wish the way you described it actually happened than the original way lol!

Animation felt inconsistent at times... I don't like the new Sakura and Fujiwara character designs.

Shirou being an idiotic idealist just like the good o'l days.
Ahh I will probobaly face-desk many times watching Shirou and his retarded ideology, I found it hard to get through FS:N Fate route anime because of him. When playing the VN he made me ragequit many times..... because I just couldn't stand his logic, or lack of thereof.

Other than those things, pretty fateful to the VN but I'd hoped that they'd cut out some of those slice of life scenes.... in any case, the huge budget really showed throughout the episode. The visuals are stunning.

That was as good as I was hoping it to be pretty much. It, once again, mostly felt like the visual novel. Awesome. That's what I want from this adaptation, and it's delivering so far. Some people here are saying that the slice of life moments are boring, but... well, I don't think so. Not one bit. It's actually really nice to see them animated for once. Energetic Taiga is awesome. :P And even though it's not the HF route, I can appreciate the Sakura scenes here as well. From what I've seen, a lot of people on this forum don't think much of her, or downright dislike her/think she's annoying. Buuuut I don't.

Don't need to say anything about the animation. It's obvious.



Gae Bolg... well, it was gorgeous looking and intense alright. Not much more needs to be said.

It's look like shirou isn't the shit that He was in fate stay night.

That Gae Bolg scene is probably one of the best animated scenes of all time... and that fight was downright amazing to watch.

Sakura is really terrible, shallow and bearing of an annoying voice.
I hope she appears less in future episodes.
Rin is OK and her voice is very pleasant.
Shirou turned out to be better than what he looks like, but still mediocre.
6/10 so far, I wonder who is Lancer's master.

Well, you don't even know Sakura.

However, she herself has told Shirou that "she won't be able to help out from now on for awhile".

It's great that the original F/SN had such shitty graphics that I abstained from watching it, so now I can enjoy the story without any sort of spoilers. Thank you Ufotable for giving us two 50-minute episodes in a row. Even though they were the same events just from a different PoV, this was still enjoyable.

You know, I can kind of see why the VN readers kept telling others to not watch Fate/Zero before this. Because while the scenes with Kiritsugu were heartwarming, I don't think we were supposed to know all the backstory there. Makes for more of a mystery in a way.

Which makes me confused as to why ufotable released Fate/Zero before releasing this. Why didn't they just leave Fate/Zero for last? Feels like it's all out of order.

All that aside, really good episode. Animation is incredible as always, and it was cool to see Shirou's side of the story here.

Also, I think I had Archer's identity spoiled for me, concerning


Fuck comments on the internet. :(

Because they were testing the waters.And the UBW movie was barely 1 year old when the took on the project.

I had my hopes we will be following Rin this time because of the 00 episode but now it seems like it's that same story the first fate stay night made but with more detail.
Oh, well i guess that can be made better. Lets hope everything is explained well and correct.


I guess every fate episode discussion will be at least 20-30 pages just thanks to two guys huh.

That was fun! But I was wanting to see Saber during the whole thing, so there were some moments (like Shirou talking to the girls outside the dojo) where I was a little bored.

I didn't hate Shirou, btw! People say so many bad things about him and I couldn't help but to like the guy. A bit naive, agreed, but a good person that *just* wants to save everyone.

Sakura is soooooo annoying! I don't know what I'll do if I hear one more "senpai" out of her mouth.

Some boring moments and Sakura aside, that was pretty fun! Awesome animation, awesome battles, awesome saber. 4/5 for me.

Shirou-Lancer fight lacked few very important scenes(like him predicting where lancer would attack after jumping and stuff) other than that it was pretty good...I especially liked this Illya more than FSN VN and anime...

Amazing episode. The art quality and fights, top notch! As someone who's new to the F/S night world, I'm very impressed by what I'm seeing so far. Aside from Shinji who looks to be a pain in the ass (though unique when you consider all the characters so far), I love all the characters and can't wait to see more about the Holy Grail War and just about everyone! :D
