Picking up where the last collection left off, Fate/Zero starts this time around like a Japanese monster epic, which is fine by me. It’s an action packed opening with stunning animation and a real sense of what is at stake. This causes many of the show’s competitors to suddenly unite, allowing for many wonderful character moments and some much needed development. Often, classic characters such as King Arthur may be used to excuse any requirement of exploring the characters, as audiences already know all about them, but Fate/Zero makes sure that we see a different side to these ancient warriors.

The battles become more intense, but the series also jumps back into the past for seemingly unrelated episodes. »

Fate/Zero Part 1 DVD Review

24 April 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Running Time: 350 minutes

Set 10 years before Fate Stay Night this prequel anime series, based on the computer game series, doesn’t require any prior knowledge in order to sit down and enjoy it. Not just because this is handled as a strictly independent story focusing on an event discussed in the previous (but latter set) anime, but also because there’s a ton of exposition thrust the viewer’s way, especially in the opening episode which is a huge info dump which tries to set the scene. This amount of information is presented in a rather laborious fashion, with almost completely static scenes animated at a distance with only the faint movement of lips to make it an animation.
