A remarkably dull sequel that progresses slowly with various non-sequitur arcs. When not in a monotonous fight scene, it's the same tired “jokes” of accidentally seeing a girl changing or naked, over and over again.
Every anime sin is committed here in a show that feels like it was Frankensteined together out of everything kids in the early 2000s said they liked about anime.
Definitely not a good show to have be your introduction to the Fate universe, even though it does do decent world-building. The music isn’t bad though, and if you like Fate and have seen the other adaptations, it won’t be a total waste of time.
Everything good from the series and then some. Better pacing, better action, more of the introspection and question asking.
Stellar military piece with fascinating philosophical aspects. Makes you inspect your stance on national policy, patriotism, war, social Darwinism, and capitalism.
Monogatari-style plot, Fate functionality, and Final Fantasy-type Final Boss. Kind of a chore to watch.
Better, richer, dialogue than in UBW, much more of a Fantasy feel than previous Fate installments, but a solid piece with some outstanding artistic, bone-chilling, and emotional moments.
