This anime franchise has been out for quite a while, but I just got to watching it last month. While most anime are based on manga, this one was based on a visual novel where you have choices as to where you can go in the story. Since then it has been made into several animes based on the different paths you can take in the story. I personally like this path, which is the Archer path.
Fate/Zero is like a prologue to the Fate Stay Night animes. It sets up the story and makes more sense after you watch that one first. Unlimited Bladeworks comes directly after it with the next generation of mages as main characters. Anyway ... the whole series is about this event called the Grail War. This is when mages from selected mage families summon servants who are heroes from the past to participate in a battle to the death for the grail, which is an infinite wish device. It can grant the winner anything his or her wants.
It's a very complex series, going into many points of views, bringing up a lot of neat philosophical questions, and featuring a lot of great characters, whether they be good or evil. It was hooked to it as soon as I started watching it. I highly recommend it if you like anime or manga or even if you aren't into anime and manga and want to try it out. Without further ado, let's get to what we can learn from this series!
