What is the best way to start watching fate?
>>
There is no good way. It's all garbage
>>
play FGO
>>
>>160930883
Don't
>>
>>160930883
Don't start with Zero and just move onto Unlimited Bladeworks. Dunno why people started the Zero-->UBW meme. You're literally just spoiling most of the plot twists for yourself.

But im asking seriously, this is not bait

>>160930883
Watch the first five minutes of the first episode of the first season and then drop the fuck out of it.

Fate is absolute trash
>>
If you're serious then start with the Visual Novel and then after reading the VN you can do whatever you want

If you believe all fateshit is garbage, don't give a crap about vn's and aren't willing to invest time into fate, feel free to watch fate zero

If you're interested in understanding and delving into all things fate and possibly type-moon and are open to vn's start with reading the fate route of fs/n.

If you want don't want to put in effort into anything and just want to be up to date on the latest memes, then read the wiki like a cancerous retard whenever there's reference you don't get.

This is all you need to know., you know what you like and what you are into.
>>
Double click the episode. Keep your eyes open, blinking occasionally to keep them moist. Rinse and repeat.

First watch Tsukihime and the KnK movies so you understand the setting, then watch Zero>Fate/Stay Night>UBW>Apo
>>
>>160930883
Fate Extra CCC OP -> Fate/Extra: Last Encore
Fate/Zero -> Heaven's Feel/spoiler]
Prisma Illya
Fate/Apocrypha

Any of these four routes are fine.
>>
>>160933805
nah Cu is great
>>
>>160930883
Play F/SN
Who cares about all the spinoff shit

F/GO is fun, Fate Zero is okay, UBW (ufotable, not DEEN) is good too
>>
>>160930883
You don't
>>
By reading the fucking VN
Kill yourself
>>
>>160930883
If you actually have a lot of time on your hands then spend 60 hours playing the Stay Night VN.

If you don't then watch Fate/Zero then UBW then wait for HF movies. Apo is a hit or miss.
>>
>>160930883
You don't unless you have shit taste.

Watch the Recent UBW.
Pretend that nothing else exists outside of that because it will litterally be all down hill from there.

Trust me. It's better that way.

You know the rest.

Nah. UBW at least had more consistent action and was shorter. But HF does have the best intermissions in all of the routes BY FAR, I have to admit.

I'm a nefwag and started with Apocrypha and I don't particulary enjoy it, should I watch Zero/UBW and call the day?

>>160941006
Go big It go home.

Read the VN or leave the franchise. We don't need more secondaries in the fanbase
>>

Go into Zero with some knowledge of how the Holy Grail War works and you should be fine.
UBW is a waste of time unless you enjoy watching autism

>>160937201
Depends on how much you value consistency.

UBW is consistently great.

HF has higher highs, and lower lows. All of the best moments of the entire VN are in there, but so are all of the worst.

I'd personally say HF, but your mileage may vary.

>>160941484
But anon.
She has no ass either.

I disagree. Having a few good moments doesn't make up for it having a lot of crappy parts. Better for something to be consistently good than amazing then terrible and over and over and over again.

Honestly for a mobage it's not bad, it at least has some gameplay to it beyond mindless tapping. The shitty rng gacha is still unforgivable.

Is it bad that there's a good VN with tons of content?

Read a summary of Fate/Stay Night (watch Unlimited Blade Works if you want). The visual novel is too damn long and not worth your time. Then watch Fate/Zero.

Rin blowing Sakura the fuck out again
Kotomine and Shirou beating the shit out of each other

Sparks Liner High and Mind of Steel are both these weirdly praised bad ends that make me think that people really missed the point of them really badly

Mind of Steel yes, Sparks Liner High not really. Its just a fleshed out bad end with a unique fight scene (that comes with its own exclusive BGM), and a great moment in general for Shirou, even if it ended badly

>>
>>160956685
fate route atleast have final fight saber versus gil. Hype, then she beat this asshole, was real
>>
>>160959421
Why does nobody remember the bit with Saber and Shirou on the bridge? It was the highlight of the route, and was the first major scene that focuses on Shirou's character arc by using Saber as a device to show his hypocrisy and why he is wrong to follow his ideal
>>
>>160930883
Wait until until someone makes a supercut of all Kotomine Kirei scenes from all Fate material, watch that, and move on to something else.
