Why did UBW sold less than Zero by such a wide margin? Is the fanbase not as big as before? Dissatisfaction? Considering how loved the VN was, you'd think this will sell a whole lot. Don't get me wrong. 30k is still a huge number but not what I was expecting.

Most likely cause as an adaptation, it was not good. Also because to the people who saw zero first, it was less edgy, "mature", and looks more like a typical shounen anime. But these are just my opinions from what I concluded from reading the comments.

Because it sucks! Compared to Zero is shit and it didn't even get closer to what the original Fate/Stay Night was...

As much as I absolutely hate comparing Stay Night to Zero, I'm actually kinda curious too why UBW sold a whole lot less.

A bit late...but zero took time for character dev., each episode felt impactful. Motives were clear. Ubw just focused on one boring character and a female who becomes a love interest (of course) and then damsel. Zero was amazingly well done, its a huge reason that people gave ubw a chance, ubw just feels sloopy in comparison. Not terrible, but sloopy compared to zero. I mean masters going toe to toe with servants? You never feel that level of bewilderment in zero. Everything took a back seat for that painfully dull main character

Sequel effect. No more, no less.

It's actually a far better drop than the one SAO II got compared to its first season.

The only way FSN anime could sell more despite being released after, is if it was an adaptation of Fate route, because Seiba.

Because F/SN UBW sucks compared to F/Z. Basically a generic Shounen that you have already seen a dozen times, it would be enjoyable enough for the flashy fight scenes & silly plot if I didn't see F/Z before it.


I pretend it never happened. Because imagining this shit happened after F/Z is just disappointing. Wish Kiritsugu never saved Shirou.

Disagree. UBW is what got me into "Fate". F/Zero has a better plot but overall my favorite is UBW. The characterizations are awesome!

To each their own mate. For me it was just incredibly disappointing after F/Z and I really disliked the main characters apart from Archer (who was pretty great for sure)
