Now it's time. I said I was gonna do this a while back but I was holding off on it. I'm going to do a series of anime/manga and or comic/show recommendations that deal with issues and themes similar to what we come across in this forum. First we'll start with Fate/Zero.
"Let us tell the story of a certain man. The story of a man who believed in his ideals more than anyone else, and by them was driven to despair."
Fate/Zero takes place 10 years prior to the events of Fate/stay night, detailing the events of the 4th Holy Grail War in Fuyuki City. The War of the Holy Grail is a contest in which seven magi summon seven Heroic Spirits to compete to obtain the power of the "Holy Grail," which grants a miracle. After three inconclusive wars for the elusive Holy Grail, the Fourth War commences.
Fate/Zero is an anime adaptation of the spinoff novel from the Fate series. It was penned by the writer of Psycho Pass (Season 1) and in my opinion just as good. It's been a while since I watched it. I may add personal thoughts later.
