    I just finishing watching the first episode (Yay double length [​IMG]), and I'm glad to see the animation is vastly superior to Fate/Stay Night. It's also quite close to the books so far, although this first episode was very exposition heavy.

    What does everyone else think?

    What? I didn't know this was coming out. Is it a sequel or prequel or something? And if so, which storyline is canon for Fate/Stay Night? The anime series or the movie one?

    Its a prequel, and afaik both (or all three if you follow the VN) are equally canon.

    Prequel based of the Fate/Zero novels by Gen Urobuchi(Puella Magi Madoka Magica/Saya no Uta)
    Its canon to all three.
    Also read the VN, its far better than the animu's :C Deen did a terrible job with them (UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS? LOLOLOL MORE LIKE UNLIMITED BUTCHERED WORKS TROLOLOL)
    This is by ufotable though, guys who did the epic KnK (Again, from the guy who did F/SN and Tsukihime), so hopes are high this is just as good if not better.
    And so far?
    ITS MOTHERFUCKING BRILLIANT
    Also don't watch it unless you don't plan to play the VN, it contains various spoilers for it.

    just search for the subber + the name of the anime.

    I think UTW fansubbed F/Z in 480p and 720p so search for something in that line. Also, it's 2 episodes worth (around 48 minutes) so it's about twice as big than normal (around 500mb for the 720p)

    I just watched the second episode.
    Animation quality's improved (Caster's summoning was amazing)
    Can't wait until we get to one of the major action scenes, this is already far better than FSN.

    Your fanboyism for the VN is disturbing, lol. Very evident in all your posts.
    Kinda annoying.

    Great anime so far. Kid Ilya (well, even younger Ilya) is the god damn cutest ever in anime form.
    Hate waiting an entire week per episode, ugh.

    Fate/Zero is based of novels, not visual novels, seriously wat :V And yes, i have made it bloody obvious how much of a fanboy i am myself, in case that wasn't obvious~ And besides, i just suggest reading it :>...in a very DOITNOWORDIE way i guess :C Trying to work on that.

    And yeah, Ilya is cute as fuck :3
    I am prolly not gonna watch any more episodes, gonna marathon when it finishes, which is gonna be p. hard :C

    I agree, the novels are brilliant and should be read at once.
    Visual Novel though, READITNOWORIMGONNAREACHOUTOFTHESCREENANDKILLYOU.

    I would suggest not watching it unless you are familiar with the series.
    That is, that you have either watched Fate/Stay Night or played the VN, it would be better if you have played the VN.
    Because Fate/Zero spoils some stuff that happens in the VN, so yeah.
    Up to you in the end though, either way, if you watch it/read the VN, i hope you enjoy~
