Best anime I;ve seen ever in my opinion

Spoiler :
One problem i had is that the action was wayyy to addicting and it was sad to see something like that end. I personally would've wanted ep 24 to be an entire ep of action and the last to be filled with some explaination if needed. They didnt show the scene where saber and archer fought in the flames where shown in Stay/night but that I hope will come in the blu rays

The animation of this was just amazing. Such beautiful graphics and those fight scenes are godly. *__*

But seriously, I loved Rider and Waver's relationship in this. It's so amusing to watch their interactions with each other, especially in the earlier episodes when Waver was getting slapped about, right up until the last episode where he stood strong to his promise to Rider. :cry: Also Lancer's fate really killed me, how could such a nice guy have such shitty luck? His class really sucks, I mean in F/SN: Unlimited Blade Works-
Spoiler :
He got made to commit suicide too. >__> Not the same Lancer but still...

Damn those Masters and their Command Spells! :x

Anyway I'm glad I saved Fate/Zero till after I saw Fate/Stay Night. I have a feeling that if I saw this first, I'd be greatly disappointed by what I'd get in Fate/Stay Night. Shiro annoys me so much it's unbelievable...

Nope not yet but I probably will after I catch up with a few other shows. Is it like some sort of comedy/parody of the series?

Yeah a crossover between Fate Series and other Type-moon anime/visual novels. They tease Lancer the most :asd:

Personally I believe they should let Ufotable reanimate Fate/Stay night because the current fate/Zero is too good and will dissapoint fans who hasnt seen stay night yet. They should also make a movie or even an OVA on Heaven's feel arc

I actually thought the animation quality for Fate/Stay Night was pretty decent, considering it's from 2006. I just wasn't too fond of the script/pacing of it (ontop of Shiro being very annoying. xD)

And I haven't played the VN so I don't know much about the Heaven's Feel arc other than it focuses on Sakura though I'd probably prefer an OVA > movie. I saw Unlimited Blade Works first (because it was a movie and movies tend to have standalone stories) and was thoroughly confused until I saw Fate/Stay Night. I also know there are a few people out there who probably didn't even know a TV series for Fate/Stay existed and just saw the movie but got put off because it won't make a lot of sense for those who don't know the story of Fate/Stay.

That being said, I do hope there'll be more Fate/something anyway because the idea and stories behind this do seem pretty epic, and from what I've read online about Heaven's Feel it definitely takes a twist on things. |:>

I actually really liked the fate/stay night when I first watched it because I had never heard of it before or knew anything about type moon. And yes at the time the animation was pretty decent.

Then I played the VN, ARGHHHHHH, why did they leave out so many cool parts. granted some nice scenes were on routes that wern't the main route but still. I also had big lols at what they did with the sex scenes in both fate/stay night and unlimited blade works. Somehow a dream about getting eaten by a dragon and a vision of blue dolphins is the the acceptable replacement for H scenes with sabre and tohsaka??? Couldn't at least some romance and kissing would be a nice alternative.

Anyway, Heaven's feel is such a fun arc simply because you get to see Dark Sakura for the first time (super saiyen style Yandere)

It was decent being from 2006, but its not at the level of Fate/Zero and that'll bring sorrow to our friends.

you think fate/stay night's quality was bad, check out tsukihime. It's another type moon VN that was turned into an anime back in 2003. Only ran 12 eps, pretty bad quality animation (worst one as far as type moon series). I actually saw it before fate/stay night and didn't find out they were at all related until later because there didn't seem anything in common between them. I also had the misfortune to first watch it dubbed (I don't care what people say about how dubbing has gotten better, but back then it was NOT).

the biggest thing is that absolutely none of the characters felt likeable in the anime (imagine a series full of shiro's...ok it wasn't that bad but still). And many of them were just barely introduced and had little to no screen time (shiki's sister for example, and the maid sisters). There was also ZERO MOE'ness from any of the female cast. Hell, it's supposed to be practically a harem series (see phantasm carnival) yet none of the female characters become dere.

rant over, but seriously, if there was a type moon series in need of a makeover, this is it.

yeah, tsukihime was bad all over but im still convinced the Fate series needs the most remake simply because I enjoyed it the most and want to see a better version.

marathoned the whole thing in 2 sittings, glad I waited for all of it to be over. This **** over the original FSN in every conceivable way, better animation (not a big deal as I understand there is a 6 year difference in production) but the story and characters were very fleshed out. Actually the only thing which FSN betters Zero in is Shirou's music theme, but then Zero had an amazing OST which is very similar to Kara no Kyoukai. Sooooooo tempted to buy R2 blurays for it, but yeah overall VERY impressed with this show. I just hated Lancer's fate like everyone else =p Oh and that airship fight, so out of place, I mean where the hell did that come from anyway. I'll be interested to see how this looks when combined with the original FSN in an AMV. Probably will have to use the UTW movie to watch the animation quality.
