Fate Series Watch Order Based on Release Date

 

The entire franchise has a ton of installments under its belt. And today, we will be taking a thorough look at these installments and have an understanding of their narrative, appeal, and plot points.

 

So let’s hop into it. However, just before we start, the list below is based on the release date of these segments.

 

And so, they aren’t in proper chronological order.

 

1. Fate/Stay Night

This installment focuses on the life of Emiya Kiritsugu who was nothing but a hard-working teenager.

 

However, his life takes some interesting turns when he participates in a life-changing tournament called the Fifth Holy Grail War.

 

And in this war, anyone who is a participant will be prone to death. Knowing that he can potentially lose his life, Kiritsugu loses the confidence to move forward.

 

However, the winner is going to have any of their wishes granted. And since this battle will feature other strong warriors, the tournament is going to be nothing but action and adventure for our boy Kiritsugu.

 

2. Fate/Zero

While the previous anime talked about the Fifth Holy Grail War, this one focuses on the Fourth Holy Grail War.

 

Fate/Zero is set 10 years before the events of Fate/Stay Night. And this series focuses on the life of various masters and their summons that shape the series for the better.

 

There are countless souls and heroes that will be featured in this tournament. And just like the previous one, the Fourth Holy Grail War will also feature a competition to death that will have its winner bestowed with the opportunity to fulfill all his dreams and wishes.

 

This is going to be fun and interesting and you wouldn't wanna miss out on it.

 

3. Fate/Kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA

This anime doesn't exactly focus on the action aspect of the Fate Series. Instead, it talks about the magical aspect that exists within the premise of the show.

 

The story talks about a girl named Illyasviel von Einzbern who was nothing but an ordinary girl at first.

 

However, she soon got to experience the magical world when she was selected by none other than Kaleidostick Magical Ruby.

 

Now our girl Illya must go ahead and perform various magical activities that she wouldn't have performed if it wasn't for this situation.

 

And to be her support, she will have another magical girl named Miyu.

 

4. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

This installment focuses on Shirou Emiya and his life as a mage. He gets himself involved in the Holy Grail War and realizes that his life is on the line now.

 

In order to survive, he decides to take matters into his own hands and starts competing seriously.

 

However, he realizes that mages summon their heroic spirits to fight in this tournament. And our boy isn't exactly the best mage in the game.

 

However, with the help of his mage Saber, he will be focusing on securing a victory for himself.

 

And let's just say that this battle is going to be a tough one. In fact, tough is an understatement for what Shirou will experience in this Holy Grail War.

 

5. Fate/Grand Order: First Order

This anime focuses on 3 Characters. The first one is Mash Kyrielight who is a fusion of a heroic spirit and a human.

 

Needless to say, the world is completely different for her and we get to experience the story from her perspective at times.

 

On the other hand, we realize that her creation was done with the intent of having a demi-servant.

 

And her creator, Chaldea, decides that this girl needs a master. That's where a young boy named Ritsuka Fujimaru comes into play.

 

This man is going to have the time of his life as he experiences something he would have never experienced otherwise.

 

And that's what makes this anime so immersive in the first place.

 

6. Fate/Apocrypha

This anime is set in an alternate timeline than Fate/Stay Night. And that's why this show is so immersive for the audience.

 

The story focuses on the Third Holy Grail War. This war took place during the second world war.

 

And one of the notable members of this war, named Darnic Prestone, ended up stealing the Greater Grail for the Third Reich.

 

However, this man outsmarted everyone else and instead got the Grail smuggled for himself and then took it to Romania.

 

The story continues from that point and dives deep into the outcomes that take place in the series.

 

7. Fate/Stay Night – Heaven’s Feel – I. Presage Flower

This is the first Heaven's Feel movie. And oh boy, isn't it amazing? The movie is just what you would expect it to be.

 

The story talks about Shirou and his life after he finds himself in a sticky situation.

 

He is going to face some serious enemies since these guys will be a matter of concern for his own survival.

 

And that's because our boy is going to participate in a war that will be filled with wars and battles.

 

The outcome is going to be decided on the basis of skill and trickery. And the one who secures the win will be rewarded with an ancient artifact that can make any wish come true.

 

This movie is nothing but insanity for the audience.

 

8. Fate/EXTRA Last Encore

This installment focuses on a guy named Hakuno. And from that point forward, the story is basically the same.

 

It talks about Hakuno as he wakes up in a virtual world and realized that this virtual realm is facing an unexpected war.

 

The idea here is that the war will be lethal for all those who are defeated.

 

However, those who manage to secure their victory will be able to have any of their wishes granted.

 

And that's why the entire show is worthy of love and appreciation from fans. It just offers a layer of excellence for the audience and makes the entire series even more fun and entertaining altogether.

 

9. Fate/Stay Night – Heaven’s Feel – II. Lost Butterfly

This story is a direct continuation of the previous Heaven's Feel movie and dives into the intricate relationships that exist between Sakura Matou and Emiya Shirou.

 

This duo has participated in the Holy Grail War and realized the stakes that this war focuses on.

 

This movie specifically talks about the aftermath of the incident that led Shirou to lose his title as a master.

 

The show will have a ton of great features and those features will shake the series from the core.

 

That's what makes these movies so entertaining and fun for the general audience.

 

10. Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files

This story is interesting from the very beginning. And that's because it focuses on various aspects of the show that were a bit ignored in the first few parts.

 

The series is set between the time frame of Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night. And that's why it is so entertaining for the audience.

 

Let's just say that the Fourth Holy Grail War left a lot of material for Lord El-Melloi Il to discover.

 

And the investigations are going to be thorough and rough. However, that's where the fun of the series is.

 

And so, I'd you haven't watched the anime yet, give it a go as soon as possible.

 

It is absolutely gorgeous.

 

11. Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia

This installment talks about Mash Kyrielight and Ritsuka Fujimaru as they try to get their hands on the lifestyle that exists in Babylon.

 

This is why the entire show is so immersive. It focuses on our amazing characters and their new surroundings.

 

This place is going to allow them to be one step closer to singularity. And that's why the show is a game-changer in the series.

 

The duo will have to face the hardships that exist in Babylon and take care of their newly formed opponents.

 

If they fail to do so, their life might very well be in danger.

 

12. Fate/Stay Night – Heaven’s Feel – III. Spring Song

This is the final installment in the series. And so, the stakes in this movie are way too high.

 

The show talks about a world that exists after that the Holy Grail War. In fact, the show talks about a realm that consists of a world in the next 2 years of the Holy Grail War.

 

And Shirou is going to fulfill Kiritsugu's last wish. And this last wish will decide the future of our boy.

 

Why? Because this man will be the game-changer. He is going to make sure that everything gets back in its place.

 

And Sakura Matoi, a character that holds a lot of importance in our narrative, is going to reveal some unforeseen secrets.

 

This is going to be fun.

 

13. Fate/Grand Order Divine Realm of the Round Table: Camelot – Wandering; Agateram

The story is placed in 1273 AD and talks about the holy city of Camelot.

 

It seems that this city has been summoned in the middle of the desert. And apparently, the members of this city are taking down people without a concern in the world.

 

This is where our duo realizes that something is off. And that something will be the rivalry that will take place between the members of the city and our duo of Ritsuka Fujimaru and Mash Kyrielight.

 

Moreover, they will be supported by more masters and servants. And their journey is going to be a rough one, no matter what.

 

That's why this anime is so impressive.

 

14. Fate/Grand Order: Final Singularity Grand Temple of Time: Solomon

This show focuses on the Chaldea Security organization. And those guys seem to have reached their end goal.

 

They have reached the point which acts as the inception of all evil. They have reached Solomon.

 

This is the place where all the evil is emerging from and it acts as the final singularity grand temple of time.

 

There's a reason why people love this anime so much. The climax that this story has to offer is so capturing that fans can't help but fall in love with it.
