I don't care that the quality is average cause I'm getting it for free and legally in the end thats all that matters to me. Plus its supporting the industry into getting more legal anime. ^_^ Besides its better than some fansubs I saw where it was all pixelated and stuff. >_>

fate/zero is definitely the best anime for fall 2011 hands down! october has lots of good stuff coming in..hyped!!

Hands up

WTF? It's only in it's first episode even though it's so hyped. But anyways, there are some reasonable competitions. Autumn 2011 indeed is one if the best seasons I've seen.

As an ultimate graphic whore, I will be waiting for 720p version with high quality audio & video.
I wish my beloved petite Sakura would be present too.

Yup, it's out.

Dude, how do you know? Its not even out yet. I just hope all the hype doesn't backlash. People who goes in hyped tend to be 10 times more likely to be dissapointed. People who goes in wanting to hate it is 10 billion times more likely to hate it if others are hyped about it.

Considering what I heard about the novel though, I probably won't be dissapointed as long as there is enough episodes to remain faithful and there is awesome music. The Fate VN would not had been nearly as epic w/o the stupendously awesome musical accompaniment.

Wow, the hype for this show skyrocketed.

Hope they preserve the quality on a stream...

I'm looking forward to the anime!~

Wait, you actually watch shows with a window size that small? Try fullscreening it and it's a whole different story. Especially with a lot of motion on screen. ::shudders::

360p = no deal, ever. Especially not when there will be 720p out right afterward. I'm not wasting my first (and most important) exposure to a show on sub-DVD video resolutions that should have been obsolete years ago.

360p looks just fine to me.

The Derp one is a downscaled 720p TV rip.

I know its hard to believe... but some people have standards. We won't just accept shit because they give it to us for free.
When I watch 360p, it never looked that shitty. Must have been captured from FUNI's/Youtube player then uploaded on some streaming site. Or its 240p, which is awful. Because I don't remember Dantalian no Shoka looking like shit on Nico Nico. I honestly wouldn't watch it if it did.

Do these screen shots really look THAT bad?

NicoNico 360p: http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f183/TeenChibi/niconicoscreen360p.png

Definitely not as crisp as 720p, but not "shit quality" in my opinion. I still believe that 360p is perfectly serviceable. I don't know whats the issue here.

I'm ready to see Saber again :3

I was completely fine with Blood-C and Dantalian no Shoka on Nico Nico. The quality beats usual illegal streaming quality. I can wait to see a series in the best quality once the BD/DVD's releases when I can re-watch it with all of the animation corrections in true HD on my PS3/HDTV. Not all of our computers can handle 720p or have the room on our computers for episode downloads. Hopefully they'll implement HD later, but for now, I don't mind. Its free, legal, and awesome! Can't wait to watch it. Thanks Aniplex.


1. 400-500 megs isn't that much. Complaining about download sizes is silly, especially since the streaming data goes to your cache on your hard drive anyway.
2. If your computer can't handle 720p in this day and age, you need a new computer.
3. It may be free and legal, but it certainly isn't awesome! I couldn't imagine watching a movie like Avatar on a small 360p stream, so why do so with an anime with movie quality animation and art?


I do it all of the time. Sorry, but definition is not that important to me... Until the home video release. Like I said I can wait for the best quality on BD/DVD, the TV broadcast will have animation mistakes and is not a crisp, clear, clean, or smooth as the BD/DVD.

Will you buy me a new computer? Not everyone can magically buy one when they please. Plus, I'm working on it. :P

360p looks just fine to me.

This shows how popular are Fate series.

I also hope the translator in charge of it is knowledgeable of Type Moon terms since it would be annoying to see "magus" as "wizard" among other things.


This. Magus and wizard isn't that bad considering how i've seen some subs butcher noble phantasm into treasure and reality marble into fixed barrier.

360p... It's like they actually want us to fansub it or something.

I used NicoNico for Blood-C this season.

The quality is quite low, even for 360p. The subs were wrong in places. And the video player took 15-20 minutes to buffer fully.

Don't know if want.


the quality was far better than what i normaley get >.> and they come out realy fast...

15-20? i had to wait over a half an hour for each ep >.>
