Hello Fate Zero fans! There are some good news. Your beloved anime is streaming on Neon Alley and dub by these talented and wonderful folks.

Taking place 10 years before the events of Fate/stay Night, this series chronicles the events of the Fourth Holy Grail War.

The Holy Grail War – in this ultimate battle field, in order to obtain the power of the “Holy Grail” that grants any unattainable wish, seven “masters” summon “servants” and fight against each other until the last one survives.

seen the video for this, not perfect voices, but not terrible considering English voice standards. I don't mean to sound sexist, but I was listening to Saber's actress and I noticed something and it holds pretty true in my mind. Is it just me or do English voice actresses universally always either under or over act in their performances?

I just noticed Saber's voice sounds different. I look it up, and I'm surprised that she is voiced by three different actresses.

  • Fate Stay Night - Kate Higgins
  • Unlimited Blade Works - Michelle Ruff
  • and now Fate Zero - Kari Wahlgren

@Acura_Max:

I was reading some comments whether a new fan should watch Fate Stay Night first or Fate Zero.

If you hate Shirou, don't continue watching it. It's pretty slow at first, and the whole appeal of Fate Stay Night relies on certain relationships.

Most folks find Fate Zero more entertaining than it. Unlike Robotics;Notes, the prequel doesn't have much references to Fate Stay Night until the later end. You won't be lost if you watch Fate Zero first.

@takashichea: That's good to hear. Since I don't know who this Shirou guy is (I'm guessing he is the main character), I"ll watch Fate Stay Night first. Judging by that compilation movie that we were watching in Aleasha's chat, I'm guessing that people don't like him because he is "wimpy" or does not do anything in comparison to other characters. If so, I don't think I will have a problem.

I really don't think there are alot of references to Steins:Gate. I believe there are about 3 if you count Nae as one. I think alot of it has to do with the fact that the series are just very similar. Although I must admit, the series does sometimes reference some obscure stuff like The Right Stuff, a movie I had no idea existed before watching the series. Steins;Gate does the same with their @Channel meme jokes. Although the English sub and dub do change those jokes to jokes about American memes.
