Letting go can be a beautiful thing. That's what I take from endings like this. Sure its depressing, but it really makes me want to fight in life and wake every morning I am able.
I enjoyed the series. It has problems, and some major confusion at times, but it was interesting to watch. The characters are pretty good, but some stand out more than others; mainly Saber.
I'd rewatch sometime in the future just to catch some of the details I may have missed the first time through.

That's what I think should have happened.

They also should have had the Black Knight and Red Knight as enemies in the anime! Those two, along with the Green Knight, were extremely hard to beat in Legion: Legend of Excalibur (Yes, I've been playing that game too much!) I wonder why they weren't in the anime?
At the core of this is, was Saber a woman or a king first? I beieve she was a woman first, despite what she says. Such a sad ending. I think that people are infact men first, or women first, and not Career professionals etc..

Very Good artwork

Nah, the secret for me is to draw fan manga! Not just those 2-page doujins with a joke attached... no, a real story with real plot and new developments! And dammit I will NOT Mary Sue! Right now I'm just filling out the script, and it already fills me with joy. I wonder what actually drawing everything will feel like.

This is where I can honestly say the show sucked but the characters rocked. It is such a character driven show. Everyone running around doing something under absurd pretext, but who cares. Saber rocks hard.


Ok. This is an anime from a H-game, so stop taking yourself so seriously, have a proper ending something less extreme but in teh same style as this, and the show would be infinitely better

Oddly enough, I had the exact opposite opinion o_o.

I really liked the backstory, but felt that some more work could have been done with character development, as it seems Shirou and Saber are the only ones that really change throughout the story.

character development is not equal to character appreciation. A beautifully drawn character is enough to captivate me, it doesn't have to be dumb first and then get smarter.

the backstory is basically "ok guys we have a grail (loooool fo real! you gotta believe me) and we are going to get some weird people to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT over it"

I still liked the characters, just would have preferred for some of them to get more screentime .

And I know the holy grail thing was a bit iffy, but I still liked the idea of all the "legendary heroes" from mythology fighting it out

New member here. I was looking for other opinions on FSN, and I guess I came to the right place.

I was introduced to the series by a friend of mine, and generally knew the plot of the game from them.

Knowing that, there were definitely moments in the anime that I adored, and others that I found lacking.

Spoiler:


If I could change anything, the series would have 3-5 more episodes to aid in character and plot development, because the ending did seem rushed.

That, and I would have liked more consistent animation after episode 14.

Also:
-Shirou's UBW
-Shirou vs. Archer (It was shown in the second OP, but not in the anime. Why?)

I just finished watching Fate / Stay Night for the first time and I must say I enjoyed it quite alot. At first I wasn't a big fan but after a few episodes I started to like the characters more (mainly Saber of course ). I would have liked to see more episodes but I suppose I shouldn't complain, some series don't even get the 24-26 episodes they deserve.

The ending was bitter sweet which fit the overall feel of the show well. Still I was hoping for the best as it came to a close so I couldn't help but feel a little sad. I really wanted Saber to be happy and be herself and if she could have somehow stayed I think she would have. Always having to think of others first and never really being able to just be a woman kind of bummed me out. I tend to identify with, and hope for the best for, characters like her.

Oh well, all in all it was a very good show and now I wish I could read/write Japanese so I could play the game the show was based on. It look like a good game and it kills me that there is a language barrier to overcome just to play it. Heres to hoping Fate/Hollow Ataraxia gets made into a anime, I would really love to see Sabre in anime form once more.

Like I said, I liked the ending. I also like to think that when Saber returned to her dream at the end, that she returned to Shirou. Of course, game-wise, that's not canon, but this wasn't the game.

Also, Hollow Ataraxia isn't exactly a canon sequel, so one can always hope that it will be animated.

Ataraxia would be so thx. I've never watched a harem anime before, but if Ataraxia was made into one, you bet I'd be watching it...

Not so much for Saber but because I think Rider got the absolute shaft and we never really got to see the soft, kind, gentle Rider that adds so much to her popularity.

(Heck, she's almost like a fighting Lacus in that respect!)

I won't compare Rider to Lacus, for multiple reasons, but the softer, gentler Rider demands more screentime.

Soft, gentle Rider = Lacus, in that she has long, exotically-colored hair and is kind and caring and quiet.
