You might have heard people say Fate/stay night is the first adaptation and it should be watched first to understand the story and here is what I’ll tell you.

It is a bad adaptation and you won’t be losing any story by skipping it. Everything that happened in Fate/stay night will be summed up in the prologue episode of Unlimited Blade Works. So, just start with Fate/Zero.

2. Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works

Unlimited Blade Works storyline sets ten years after Fate/Zero and you’ll be introduced to a few new characters along with some old ones. You’ll get a complete idea of the story of Fate/stay night in the prologue episode.

So, only watch Fate/Zero and then continue with Unlimited Blade Works and you won’t be missing anything at all. If you do it the other way around, you’re going to spoil yourselves.

3. Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel Movies I, II, and III

Basically, these three make you feel like it is set in an alternate dimension. The story is almost the same as Unlimited Blade Works initially, but later on, it covers a lot of aspects that you don’t get to see in the previous anime.

The history of the Holy Grail is explained perfectly and the animation is just Oh My God! In my opinion, watching movies after Fate/Zero and Unlimited Blade Works make it an actual story. So, these are a must-watch!

Optional/Bonus:

Finally, we’re here for the side story adaptions, or you can call them spinoffs. Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA is the adaption of the Fate Series that follows the girl Illya who transforms into a magical girl to fulfill a task of magic cards scattered all over the city.

You can watch this part at any time since it is a spinoff. But if you watch it after the completion of all parts because you’ll have a good grip on each character.

Apart from this, other spinoff series are following Fate Series like “Fate/Apocrypha” and “Fate/Extra Last Encore.” These spinoffs are not as good as the main parts of the Fate Series, but still, these are something you can watch if you’re greatly attached to the Fate Series.

And also, these adaptions have different studios in charge of animation, so you might feel some difference in them. Besides that, these are pretty good adaptions if you’re willing to kill some time. Even though it is a spinoff, it is still a part of the fate series watch order.

Conclusion!

Here it is, the best Fate anime series watch order you can follow before getting into it. There might be many other routes in Fate but trust me, there isn’t any better route than this.

I’ve watched all the adaptations from the franchise and this is the only route that can provide you with the best watching experience. So, we hope you’ll have a great time with this masterpiece!

  1. very helpful

    1. Thanks!Hope you have a great watch!

  2. The list is really helpful but i have noticed you havent included ‘Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia’ in the list, when am i supposed to watch that or is it a spinoff, thanks.

    1. You can watch it even without watching the Fate series. Fate Grand Order has its own timeline, but you can watch Fate/Grand Order: OVA and Episode 0 of Fate/Grand Order: Babylonia before watching it. Once you’re done watching these two, enjoy Absolute Demonic Front.

      1. Ok thanks 🙂
