Not worth the time
26 December 2017 | by mayank09876See all my reviews

I am new to the fate series; it took me 2-3 episodes just to get a hang of what was happening. Simply it's a war between two factions, red and black, each having 7 mages who summon a hero each from legends/history to a battle royal, the winning pair gets granted there wish. The concept sounded interesting but what it meant was keeping track of 28 people!!! Luckily the anime does not throw them all at ones on you. Still, the ones introduced are hard to keep track off and everyone's role felt rushed considering there are only 12 episodes. Would have enjoyed the plot if they had concentrated on the heroic figures past and the reason they agreed to be summoned as in what was that wish they wanted to be granted for which they would agree to be reborn as a weapon of war. Instead, we are left with only battle scenes and lots of fan service, the way they go about destroying a legends characterization is horrendous. There is a hint of a backstory, the reason why this is happening which we get to know only at the end of the season and it's not worth sitting through the 12 episodes for. The animation itself is decent, not bad, not good, just decent.
