Then proceed to watch some specials, movies and ovas if you liked it.

I'm not usually a fan of skipping, even if I don't like an anime. I like to see it through to the end of the season.

Plus, if I like it, I definitely want to watch it all.

This looks like it makes sense. What does
ubw
stand for?

Thanks

Main story:

Fate/stay night 2006
Unlimited Blade Works (2014)
Heaven's Feel Trilogy (only 2 film out of 3 )
Prequel:

Fate/Zero
Spinoffs:

Fate/kaleid
Carnival Phantasm
Fate/Apocrypha
Fate/Extra: Last Encore

Fate/Stay Night was the first to come out. It used the typical "gotta get stronger to protecc my friends" theme popular at the time. Most people say to skip this one. If you watch it at all, watch it first. Fate/Zero came out second, it is a prequel of F/SN. Great plot, lots of characterization, not a lot of character growth. Most people like this one. Watch after F/SN if you decided to watch F/SN, otherwise order doesn't matter. Fate/Unlimited Blade Works is a retelling of F/SN, same characters, completely different plot and character development. Fate/Apocrypha is completely standalone. No one liked the mc, other characters are ok.

That's it. I'm probably missing a few but i never played the game so...

Oh, i almost forgot, i recommend watching Kara No Kyoukai as well. It's in alternate version, don't know at what time.
Awesome! I'll watch the main story first, including the one recommended to skip, and if I like it watch the spinoffs.

Thanks, appreciate it!

when people say to skip the studio dean fate series, it's best to do that, it isn't the best adaptation of the fate route

dont watch original fate stay night its an abomination , like literally one of the worst pieces of trash ever created u dont even need to watch it because its technically just an alternate version of UBW that focuses on Sabers Route from the VN technically while UBW focuses on Rin
and heavens feel focuses on sakura




Follow Mila91s advice

1. Fate Zero

2. Fate Zero Season 2

3. Fate Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works

4. Fate Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works Season 2

this basically
its the best order imo

and heavens feel but wait for 2020 so u can watch the whole thing at once :P

@dipperdolphin

You are welcome! :) Let me know how you like it and feel free to add me.

If you want to start the Fate Series this order that I wrote is crucial, later if you become obsessed by it, you can watch the movies as well :)

This is really exciting time for you, beginning this amazing show! You will love it!

Please don't let others confuse you and just follow my order :)

Yes thank you @Daphi XD

The Fate series can trully be confusing lol , ( @dipperdolphin if you follow my order you will be fine )

Fate Zero + Fate Zero Season 2 is the start of the main Plot if you want to understand everything in the other ones you should watch this first.


Then its either Fate/stay night or Fate Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works + Fate Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works Season 2
They are alternative storys.
You probably want to watch UBW (Unlimited Blade Works) first to understand some things in the older Fate stay night that arent really explained.

i eddited my answer @MountainOfIrony

i havent watched heavens feel yet
but basically original FSN is the saber route(shitty adaption), UBW is Rins Route(well adapted ) and Heavens Feel is the Sakura Route all from the Visual Novel ( im sure this adaption is also well done judging by the score)
personally im waiting for 2020 to watch all 3 heavens feel movies at once on a cozy evening ;)

so technically they are all alternate versions in the same time frame

Fate Zero is the prequel
and the other 3 versions are alternate versions of each other during the same time focusing on the different waifus

thats why i advice to watch fate zero first

Just don't watch fate kaleid. That's utter shit. Even my own shit is better in comparison.
Okay, I'll give that one a pass then 😂

Don't watch Fate stay night UBW before Zero. I did the same thing and regret. Don't know why people keep saying to watch UBW before Zero.

The right route:

Fate Zero
Fate/Stay Night UBW
Heavens Feel (Movies)

Things i could remember of that made me frustrated because i watched UBW before Zero.

there's no agreed upon anime-only watch order, watch them however you want

or read the VN

or read the first route of the VN(Fate route), or watch a non-commentary youtube playthrough of it -> UBW TV anime -> HF movies -> Fate/Zero

Fate/Zero has big spoilers for the first two HF movies, but a very minor spoiler for the third movie, you could watch it after the second movie if you don’t want to wait.
----------------------------------
spin-offs and other anime:
Fate/Apocrypha can be watched after UBW 2014 or FSN 2006 at least.
Fate/Extra Last Encore can be watched after UBW 2014 or FSN 2006 at least, not that i recommend watching it.
Fate/Prototype is the prototype version of Fate/stay night, should be watched after UBW or FSN 2006 at least.
Fate/Grand Order: First Order adapts the prologue part of a trash mobile game, can be watched after UBW 2014 or FSN 2006 at least, and preferably after the first HF movie. not that i recommend watching it.
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1757326

Edit: gigguk's joke video is being taken seriously and added more blight on this watch order meme, what a surprise...

OP's query has been sufficiently addressed and there's nothing left to discuss
One bright day in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight
Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other
A deaf policeman heard the noise and came and killed those two dead boys
