The story of Fate/Zero takes place ten 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 mages 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 follows seven mages and their plots to claim the “Holy Grail”. The espionage, planning and backstabbing push the first season along. The second season is when all the main players make their move for the “Holy Grail”. The animation in Fate/Zero is impressive, the fight scenes are intense and the character growth throughout the 25 episodes is endearing. The theme of the anime is the heart’s true desire which is why only a select few are chosen to participate in the Holy Grail War. Some know, or at least think they know, their heart’s desire. While others struggle to find their purpose.
