Not complete just yet. Gotta w8 ten more years after the end of Fate/Stay night for another holy grail war. Even if the grail was destroy by Saber's master it still came back the next year for his son to become the master. Emiya decided to destroy the grail too. However, that won't stop it for coming again after ten years. Therefore, It is again when Emiya and Saber meet once more but Saber lost her memories and little by little regains it.......

Is it really confirmed? If it's really 25 episodes...well thats what I estimated. I think 25 is a good amount to adapt Fate/Zero.


Yes, it is.
Now the only information that remains is the OP. Please let the rumor about the OP being by Kalafina be true!


Nice. I really hope the OP song will be awesome =D (An OP by Kalafina would be really nice :D)
Wonder when they'll reveal that information..


well Fate/Night got really awesome op songs so I hope they continue that ;)

ufotable - winning at what studio DEEN fails horribly since 2007.
YES SIR! That made my day. No please fuck off censors if possible but IMO it won't due to marketing shit.

why dont we hope ufotable brings us a great decade with awesome adaptations of Type moon works

if they make
Fate/Zero - 2011
Fate/Stay Night remake - 2012
Fate/Stay Night UBW path remake - 2013
Fate/Stay Night HF path - 2013
Tsukihime Remake - 2014
and then whatever else afterwards

i'd be VERY happy if things happened like the above schedule...


Haha, that would be absolutely awesome xD But VERY unlikely. I'd be thrilled if they did that though.


I totally agree. That would be very definitely awesome 8D However...it seems like DEEN is the only studio that has the rights to animating the Fate series (excluding Fate/Zero) --; Unless Type Moon allows Ufotable to reanimate them...but we all know thats probably not going to happen :|

Just finished both Fate/Stay night and Unlimited Blade Works a couple hours ago, and I'm now officially pumped for Fate/Zero after reading all the praise and the fact that UROBOCHI GEN is the writer HELL YES!

A Fate/zero animu? Talk about unexpected.

Gotta finally read the novel to be able to complain later about how badly it was adapted.
