Fate/Zero blog series (part 3)

<< PART 2

Hello again, you managed to read this far, hope I can still hold your interest for a while longer. There is only 1 more part of the Fate/Zero review series, but it will be followed by character analysis series. So stay tuned :)

ARTWORK/ANIMATION

Ufotable really did outdo themselves with Fate/Zero. Anime fans would've expected no less from one of the top studios, and it was known that they spent a huge amount of cash on this (it was joked that "they had a budget big enough to buy Belgium!" lol). But what can I say, the artwork is breathtaking, from the detailed characters to the gorgeous backgrounds, it truly is eye-candy for anime lovers. The characters with the biggest fanbase are Saber (oh Saber is just awesomely cute in dark suit) coupled with pure beauty of snow-white Irisviel, no wonder there are so many fan-made contents and cosplays for them.


10/10 ==> WOULD BANG!

Besides outfits, characters are also portrayed by the way they perform their actions and skills: Tokiomi with his flashy fire magic, Archer who never bothers to uncross his arms even during battles, Archibald with the protective Volumen Hydragum skill shows his cowardice personality are a few examples that springs to my mind.


Beautiful sceneries from Fate/Zero

While watching the series, there were countless moments when I had to rewind and enjoy the beautiful sceneries. From the snowy Einzbern castle to the star reflected lake where Kiritsugu grew up, they add that extra enjoyment to the show. The battle scenes do not disappoint either. I was especially impressed with Episode 15 when Saber was performing her Noble Phantasm (ultimate weapon/skill). Thousands of bright particles (which represented aspiration and valour of past and present warriors) rose to the night sky, then released by the legendary Excalibur sword and formed a destructive beam. That scene was where I understood the true meaning of eyegasm XD


TOTAL EYEGASM, MUCH SEXIER THAN GOKU'S SPIRIT BOMB :P

All the battle scenes involving Berserker (dubbed the baddest badass in the series) are also worth mentioning. He is illustrated with 3D CGI effects, he is fully clad in pitch-black armour and a rustic helmet with a thinly carved slit displaying the ghastly glow of his eyes. He looks more like a shadow demon than a knight with the mystic dark aura surrounding him. His dog fight with Archer using F-15 fighter jet as Noble Phantasm is one of the iconic scenes of Fate/Zero, there are several memes with reference to this :D


In a nutshell, the artworks and animations convey the tone of the series very well.

Art/Animation: 9/10
