What a fucking great first episode !

It's as excepted from a combo like Fate/Zero + Ufotable

The musics were great, the openint too, and the end too !! A good pacing for a first episode. A great intro which introduce you most of the protagonist.

Really great


Saaaaaaabeeeeeeeeeeeer !

Irrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii !

Aoooooiiiiiiiiiiiiii !


Can't wait for the next episode.

Definitly, the show of this year

Well those characters were rather talkative. Ufotable must've had a hard time coming up with ideas how to make the visuals excting those times (lawl at the magic Risei and Tokiomi circle walking) but over the course of time the script already did it's job in capturing the thrill of the battle that is about to start.

Having said that, I don't think I can wait one week. Saber at the end was just too much. Also the preview lines started of rather lime but they threw a nice one out with Kirei's first instruction.

And Welvet scenes were quite heartwarming among all that ruthless masters.
Oh and fearing they'd throw out their whole animation budget in the first episodes I'm rather happy they used a lot of shortcuts and concentrated on background CGI's they can hopefully reuse quite a few times again and put their money in the awesome scenes later.

Pity though. Would love it if every episode was as long as the first.

It has to be early 90's, because it's 10 years before FSN, and FSN is 2004 at the latest.

and why is Kariya wearing that blue hoodie always?
Its told that the 3 families know very well how the magic of the others work. His father should know that for the family crest to be inserted in sakura some worms might be involved. Maybe not the rape part but at least he knew that his daughter would need to endure something even worst than dead if the crest implant was unsuccessful.

With the exception of Waver, these guys know what's up, and even Waver seems pretty talented. Kinda like an Ivy League grad with no real life experience.
Exactly. It shows how much of a mess the 5th war was. This one is all about the professionals. Kinda like watching highschool football before watching the NFL. Anyway extremely impressed with everything and it was an very solid episode. Plenty of worldbuilding while also getting pretty good glimpses of individuals.

Now can ufotable work on a heaven's feel adaptation of FS/N after this?

That's not the impression I had. I was under the idea that each family knew some of what the others did, but they didn't know everything and they DEFINITELY didn't know the other's methods of training ( otherwise one family could take all of the secrets).

Great art, great prologue. Very complicated and I luckily have some patience and the brainpower to crunch it through all (and I love it).

Excellent art and visuals, and that's to be expected from a Fate franchise. I was disappointed at the lack of "frames per second" (in other words, animation) in the OP, being visibly choppy.

This is all professional, and BADASS. I'd love to know more about Emiya's background as a cold-blooded assassin who ignores traditional Japanese ideals of honourbound combat. He reminds me of games by Valve corporation in fact...sneaking up from behind etc...

So awesome. The animation is beyond good. The brith of Ilya and little Rin and Sakura were so cute. Aoi and was it Iri? are so hot.

Lol at Waver stealing the relic to get even with Archibald, he has no idea what he's gotten into. The head of Matao should just die already, how can he do that to poor little Sakura. Was so sad when they showed her. Sympathizing with Kariya already. Tohsaka is probably the worst father ever. Kotomine just seemed so gar with that voice, but it doesn't quite match with his current self, imo.Best part was at the end when Emiya summoned Saber!

As I said, maybe not the rape part. They don't share the method but they are well aware about each others capabilities, forte and so on and they know this even before the creation of the first grail. Its exactly the reason why all the knowledge they have from everybody that the Einzbern`s invite the matou and the Tohsaka to help them with the first grail.

Remember this is the 4th war but they know each other since hundreds of years.

The father of sakura was very much aware what kind of magic the matou use and how, you don't really need to understand the method to came up with an idea on how they use the worms and how they would implant their crest on his daughter.

Thats why this guy deserves a brick on his face. Yeah as a magus he was saving a great amount of magic that would go to waste on sakura but that idea fails when you see that he sent his daughter to hell with no care about her survival.

Wow when you take this first episode it makes some events in the original series feel like a complex sibling rivalry .

Still now this is a first episode. Huge and giving a ton of information to set up the events to come. Got a good picture of the Masters involved in this and all should be interesting characters. Well that Waver kid seems like an idiot who is getting in way over his head just to prove a point, but whatever .

Still favourite character has to go to Kariya so far. What a crazy guy to go this far. Can definitely tell how much he cares not only about Sakura, but her mother too. He's destroying himself just for the sake of freeing them from his madman of a father. No wonder he was so disturbed upon hearing what had happened. Even coming there as fast as he could it was just too late. What that poor girl has gone through...geeze. You know it isn't going to go well for him, but damn if you don't want to cheer him on anyways.

I can hardly contain myself for the next ep.
Truly this is how Fate/stay night should have been.

Great visuals, music, and great presentation for ep 1.
I cried, screamed at my monitor in rage (by the end, my rage will become a Conceptual Weapon ), and laughed (mostly at Wavers antics). A really good start.
