ok this is not a troll topic, I'm not trying to bait anyone either. but the amount of hype around this show has gotten to the point where I'm honestly confused. i don't see why the hype is this big? Is there something about fate stay night that will blow my mind in later episodes? is there something that VN readers know that isn't being shown in the anime yet? if so can u tell me when this will happen? i don't really wanna continue watching 12 minutes of slice of life, 6 minutes of action, and 6 minutes of mystery. I've been keeping up with this on a weekly basis but honestly WHEN DOES IT LIVE TO THE HYPE?

Last 3 episodes of the first half and the whole 2nd half are where things pick up. Yes there are obviously things the VN readers know that anime only watchers wouldn't.

The sol is just part of FSN you really can't avoid it unless you want the DEEN UBW movie all over again. The show isn't about the fights.

I would say that it's pretty good from the start. If you're talking about when the build up starts paying off, you are probably talking about the second cour.

If you find yourself unable to get yourself attached to the show, perhaps think about dropping it, and watch something that you may enjoy more.

Drop it and marathon it when second cour ends. Otherwise you'll just be too caught up thinking of the hype to actually focus on the show and enjoying it yourself.

This being is correct.

ITs good from the start but the first half IS character set up and setting introduction mainly. Since characters are main focus, that i awesome in on itself.

If you are expecting jut an action show then its not for you

Even fans of the series have said that hype of the first half is too strong, because a major part (not all) of the first half is setting up the second half.

It already lives up to the hype.

I mean the majority of VN fans already git what they wanted, Shirou doesnt look like a sexist prick or fucking useless and the rest of the chars arent just there to fill the screen.

The hype is real.

Trust me I can care less about action look at my avy lol dialogue is the least of my worries.

I held off watching zero because of ppl telling me to watch this first I just want to know if the vibe will ever change.Alot of ppl in this topic already are telling me it's all about the second cour.

Tbh dialoge is what's separating it from it's source material atm. (It did come from a 70+ hour VN after all.)

but overall this is shaping up to be a great adaptation. So yes the second half should prove to be most exciting. Maybe a marathon after the shitstorm is over?

Do you know what world building and character set up is?Because if you found the vast majority of sol scenes or mystery as just scenes then clearly this isnt for you.

It's like the marshmellow experiment. You can eat the Fate Zero marshmellow now, or you can wait for the F/SN marshmellow. Either way, marshmellows are delicious.

Marathoning later on and forgetting about Fate for the time being should work best if you can't resist. The reason there's so much hype is because people who already read the VN are going ballistic over the adaptation.

Going from UBW 2014 to HF and then FZ would be the ideal method of watching.

This.

as I said - the purpose of the firt half is to establish and build up characters and their relationships.

first ~40% of UBW is mostly build-up (though I still love it) but yeah the second half is the really amazing part

I always find it scary when Fai and ssjokg agree on something. But when they do agree, it also means it must be right.

Probably expecting the last couple of episodes to be solid but if not second season should do the trick.

Nah, Mira is like that stalker who occasionally leaves pink love letters laced with poison or ebola in our lockers.

I think it's a similar situation to F/Z. First cour of F/Z is rated much less than the second cour. The best parts were in the second cour where shit actually hit the fan and I am pretty sure it will be the same with F/SN.

It's pretty much exactly like that, which is why I get ticked when F/Z only watchers shit on this adaptation.

Saber is at best on equal footing with the other heroines for me. I actually cannot stand any seafood,including shrimps, fish is still tolerable. I hate to-love-ru with a passion.

Sorry, but we will not become friends it seems, Shrimp and Lala.
