Average Rating

With the promise of granting any wish, the omnipotent Holy Grail triggered three wars in the past, each too cruel and fierce to leave a victor. In spite of that, the wealthy Einzbern family is confident that the Fourth Holy Grail War will be different; namely, with a vessel of the Holy Grail now in their grasp. Solely for this reason, the much hated "Magus Killer" Kiritsugu Emiya is hired by the Einzberns, with marriage to their only daughter Irisviel as binding contract. Kiritsugu now stands at the center of a cutthroat game of survival, facing off against six other participants, each armed with an ancient familiar, and fueled by unique desires and ideals. Accompanied by his own familiar, Saber, the notorious mercenary soon finds his greatest opponent in Kirei Kotomine, a priest who seeks salvation from the emptiness within himself in pursuit of Kiritsugu. Based on the light novel written by Gen Urobuchi, Fate/Zero depicts the events of the Fourth Holy Grail War—10 years prior to Fate/stay night. Witness a battle royale in which no one is guaranteed to survive.

Encoder's Notes

This is the usual Fate encode, just divided across two posts because that’s how it is on MyAnimeList and our post data needs to be consistent with it. Make sure you grab both seasons.

I came for the action scenes, came out with ideals that i’ll carry forever. Emotional roller coaster. Music+ visuals that leaves you in awe


It promises non stop battle royale action, but instead delivers engaging characters and wavering factions.


This show is not only amazing, but it also makes it hard to pinpoint who the bad guys is and i think am actually taking the bad guys side


Pokémon: Historical figures and legends edition!


All hail Best Boy, Rider.


An outstanding example of classic tragedy. Gen Urobuchi’s narrative style never fails to amaze me.


Fate/Zero typifies the pinnacle of modern anime with magnificent style and astute direction, in thrilling, if not brazen form.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
