Mai-HiME, Fate/Zero Recommendations
A contest only has one winner and in both series, the ultimate prize is up for grabs. Thus, both series has the battle royal theme featuring characters using their supernatural abilities to win.
There is plenty of action in both series and a cast of characters of stark personalities, goals, and ideologies. As episodes progresses, more truth is revealed as drama and dark secrets revealed.
While Fate/Zero lacks up romance, it makes it up for its stunning visuals. Both series also contain powerful soundtrack by the talented Yuki Kajiura. Both series are certainly something to remember by.
+ Dramatic survival game anime where the characters are masters of historical figures/mechanical beasts (Fate/Mai-Hime respectively) that fight against one another. The masters can also use magic.
+ Music composed by Yuki Kajiura
+ Great animation
- Mai-Hime takes a while until it gets into the survival game part and has much more filler and comedy as well as a school setting which Fate/Zero doesn't have
