Amazing animation cannot redeem a poor story
3 August 2015 | by mchen-87793See all my reviews

I watched Fate/Zero first and loved it, so naturally I was excited to watch this one too. I was incredibly disappointed.

The story was slow-paced. The same one narrow theme is repeated so frequently that you are almost tempted to fast-forward through some of the dialogue because you already know what they are going to say. The other Masters are given only a small amount of back-story, so you don't forge any sort of emotional connection to them. Rin and Emiya (and their Servants) are the main focus of the show. This is unfortunate for several reasons.

Emiya, is a dunce whose only worth/uniqueness is his unyielding stubbornness. In any realistic situation, he would have been eliminated in the first few episodes, but he seems to survive countless near- death experiences simply because he is a main character rather than any clever solutions or tricks (for example, he runs into multiple fights without the ability to actually fight, and another character saves him or the opponent decides it's "more fun" to wait to kill him). He apparently doesn't understand the simple concept that if he dies in a situation that he clearly cannot handle, he would be unable to save any more people. But his plot- armor is essentially infinite so... He also does not go through any character development. He is the same person in the beginning of the show as he is in the end, just with more fighting ability.

I don't have much to say about Rin. I like her personality, but she doesn't get any character development either.

The romance in this anime is also incredibly obvious and childish. There is no question or mystery to it. Just combine all the middle school clichés.

Fortunately, Archer is interesting. But he is the only multidimensional character. The motives of all the other characters are incredibly obvious. There are absolutely no surprises in this anime except for one twist.
