Fate/Stay Night - Spernatural, Fantasy, Romance, Action, Drama (May contain bloody violence, bad language, nudity & adult themes)... Shirou Emiya lost his parents in a fire when he was young and was later adopted by a sorceror by the name of Kiritsugu Emiya. Although he was full of admiration for his adopted father and yearns to become an ally of justice, Shirou has limited powers and was unable to become a strong sorceror like his father. That is until one fateful day, he was drawn into the Holy Grail War and had to summon a female "Servant" known as Saber in order to protect himself. It turns out that the Holy Grail War involves a series of battles among powerful sorcerors to fight for the possession of a relic that will grant one's wishes, the Holy Grail. There are altogether seven "Masters" who can summon their respective "Servants" from different classes known as Saber, Archer, Rider, Berserker, Lancer, Caster and Assasin. These "Servants" have to hide their names in order not to reveal their weaknesses to the enemies. The story revolves around Shirou and his entanglement in the Holy Grail War. _______________________ Opening Theme: #1. "disillusion" by Sachi Tainaka (eps 1-14) #2.

  • A solid and very enjoyable anime, although it is in need of a few extra episodes as the ending feels a little rushed.

    The show centres on Shirou Emiya a young sorcerer with very limited powers. One day however, Shirou accidentally gets involved in a dangerous situation and he summons a servant to save him. It turns out that Shirou has become involved in the Holy Grail War, a battle in which seven sorcerers each summon a servant (these servants are actually famous historical figures that must take on assumed names so that they do not expose their weaknesses to their enemy's for example Berserker is Hercules, Saber is Quinevere etc)and they fight to the death. When only one sorcerer remans they are granted the Holy Grail and thus may make any wish they dsire and have it come true.

    This is an excellent anime with some very cool fight scenes and some excellent animation. The only downside is that the last few episodes feel very rushed and could have done with being padded out over an extra few epeisodes. Despite this it is still excellent.moreless
  • Fate/Stay Night is a story of a Holy Grail war, where Magi fight to obtain the power of the Holy Grail.

    The story is told, by a young Magi, Shirou Emiya, who has no experience and very little potential in magic, who is able to summon Saber as a servant. Unwillingly he now has to partake in the Holy Grail wars, with one of the biggest problems is he doesn't like violence as such and he wants to help the world, not fight over some power. He either fights or dies.

    Sounds interesting enough sure, and it is. Although it can get a bit boring at times, the story is well developed. The character designs (costumes) are done extremely well with detailed and clear outlooks on how they want their characters portrayed. They have done character personality well though Shirou Emiya really gets on my nerves, for refusing to fight and trying to be all heroic. In some regards his character isn't really believable. There is a vast range of servants with different abilities and strengths which gives Fate/Stay Night some awesome fight scenes throughout the series. Overall a good show that I would recommend you to watch.moreless
  • This show is about magicians and their servants, epic heros, trying to obtain the holy grail in the "Holy Grail War" The main characters are Emiya Shirou, Sabre- king Arthur, Archer-future shirou, Tohsaka, and a few other magicians and servants.moreless

    This is one of my personal favorites. I really wish that they'd give us another season of this show. I personally liked how the show was always creative and full of action, but still had a really complicated love aspect to it. It's really sad that not only sabre and shirou didn't end up together but she went and died. I wasn't happy about that. There were a lot of really good twists and turns in the plot. Specifically how (spoiler here) Archer is the future shirou. That was a good one. You can tell because during his fight with berserker he calls Illya by her name and throws says things that Shirou will learn later on, like how berserker has multiple lives, and that he can manifest weapons, like shirou can. All in all this is a great anime. One of the best.moreless
  • I like this very much as I like myself.Well as soon as I can remember is that the servants are Saber,Archer,Berserker,Rider,Lancer,Gilgamesh,Caster and Assasin.And their masters are Shirou Emiya,Tohsaka Rin and I forget the other then Kiritsugu,that'smoreless

    I like this show especially episode 10 {laughs}.Its a secret why I like it any way I would not even believe that Saber would be in love with Shirou and I am confused why is she presenting KIng Arthur if she is a girl.And she is the strongest among the servants.And I like that too.She didn't got easy on Rider Berserker Assasin Lancer Gilgamesh

    .Know why I didn't mentioned Caster and Archer?.Its because Archer were killed by Berserker while Caster where killed by Gilgamesh.You know that in the 5 servants that Saber killed she didn't killed them all so easily.I like it so michmoreless
  • For anyone who enjoys a good action series, this is worth a shot.

    I thought that Fate/Stay Night was actually a really good show. For the most part, the animation was excellent, and the music played out pretty nicely as well. Despite these things though, it did tend to feel a little slow at times, although that could just be me. The plot was fine: intriguing, exciting, and it kept me at the computer for several hours. The action in the show is pretty great, too, especially if you're a person who loves to see a special, flashy attack from various characters in a series. :) There are plenty of those to be had here, making each fight have a very climactic feel near the end of the battles, which, to me, is a good thing.

    Furthermore, all the characters have very in-depth personalities, which make them all that much more interesting and curious to observe.

    This show is definitely worth checking out.moreless
