Fate/Zero is an adaptation of a series of light novels which is also serves as a prequel to the popular visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night. Fate/Zero which tells the tale of the Fourth Holy Grail War. Once every sixty years, seven mages are selected by the Grail to partake in a battle royal in which only one will survive and the victor will have one wish granted. These mages (dubbed 'The Masters') are able to summon a heroic spirt (or a 'Servant'), each also seeking the Holy Grail and each fitting into one of 7 different classes with different abilities to fight alongside them. These spirits are the souls of ether powerful historical figures or famous legends, with some slight differences from the familiar tales.

First of all, Fate/Zero looks fantastic, with both excellent animation and art style, the series is very similar to the Kara no Kyoukai (or Garden of Sinners) film series, which makes sense given that Ufotable animated both. It also blends CGI into the mix almost perfectly, through it is mainly limited to magic and the character of Berserker, which serves to give him an otherworldly look.

Now, the important thing to note about the first half of Fate/Zero is that its greatest strength might also be greatest weakness, the first 13 episodes are about explaining the world and introducing all the major characters. The first episode is 40 minutes long, and entirely based on introducing the majority of the cast. The focus of the entire series is not on one single Master/Servert team, but on the web of relationships between all the teams and their different motivations or lack thereof.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Ten years before the events of 'Fate/stay night', Fuyuki City played host to the Fourth Holy Grail War that sees seven mages fight each other with the summoned spirits of famous heroes from history. The mercenary mage assassin Kiritsugu Emiya is taking part on behalf the Einzbern family, alongside his wife Iri in the battle for the Holy Grail, an item that can grant any wish. To win the battle they must defeat the six other mages and their Heroic Servants but all of them have their own wishes and reasons to fight.

Based on a light novel, 'Fate/Zero' is the prequel series to the 'Fate/stay night' and tells the story of the previous Grail War that involved the parents of the Fate/stay night characters. Despite being a prequel, you don't have to have any knowledge of the original story but as with all prequels it does contain some spoilers for revelations in its parent story. This first collection includes the first thirteen episodes of the series taking the action from the beginning of the Holy Grail War to the very beginning of the fight on the river.

The plot of the series is very good with some very nice elements and some very good characters. The characters in particular are one of the strengths of the series with both the Servants and Masters all being very interesting people (the relationship between Rider and his master Waver in particular being brilliantly done). The series is mostly an ensemble with all the characters being important and having some development but the main characters can be seen to be Kiritsugu Emiya, Kirei Kotomine and of course Saber. As a prequel we also get to see how some of the characters from the original were like as children with Rin, Sakura and Illya all making appearances.

Format: Blu-ray
I have this early due to the fact i buy wholesale anime so i didn't buy from amazon nor did i watch a pirate copy or stream so i am commenting on the actual blu ray quality.

I wont go into the deep story/plot detail other reviewers have but will just comment on a few points.

1) The animation is superb as is the picture quality.
2) The collectors box is very nicely made,basically its a cardboard sleeve its thick and well made with great quality artwork on it. It houses disc 1 and a little insert which can be removed to house disc 2 when it is released officially.Its definitely a cut above the usual flimsy cardboard trash sleeves you usually get and has a nice glossy look to it.
3) The soundtrack is very nicely done - probably not a soundtrack i would purchase but the songs are good.The sound quality in the blu ray is also exceptional.
4) The first episode is quite long and gives somewhat of an information dump but never gets boring, the series however really starts to kick in at episode 3 and you will be glued to the screen from then on.
5) I have been informed directly by MVM that this collectors edition is limited to 1000 copies of blu ray and dvd so if thats true the collectors ed wont be around very long and i am unsure of what the cost of the basic blu ray will be yet, so if you not sure then i would make up your mind quite quickly just in case you miss out.

All in all a great anime / soundtrack / story , and some very interesting portrayal of historical characters its probably as close to a 100% score as any anime would get from me.The only extras are a textless opening and closing so if you are hoping for plenty extras on the collectors ed part 1 you will feel let down, extras dont matter to me at all so were not relevant in my scoring of the product..

Hope this review helps.
