“The Holy Grail will save you.”
After finishing up The Garden of Sinners last week, we are taking our first steps into the larger world of Fate/stay night, the most iconic of Kinoko Nasu and Type-Moon’s creations, with Fate/Zero, the prequel anime based on the light novel series by Gen Urobuchi. On today’s episode, Sean gives us an in-depth introduction to the original Fate/stay night visual novel, all the ways it’s been adapted over the years, and tells us how Fate/Zero came about and where it fits into things. Then we discuss the first, double-length episode of the anime, and find that it’s not just a great hour of TV, but an excellent stand-alone introduction for anyone (like Jonathan!) who hasn’t previously experienced Fate/stay night.
Enjoy, and come back next week as we review the rest of Fate/Zero, episodes 2 through 25!
