The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning.

The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

Sola and Fate/stay night are both shows in which a supernatural humanlike "creature" eventually becomes a very important person / love interest of the main character. While sola is more of a romance/action and FSN more a romance/action show, they contain very similar elements from both genres and go over emotions of hatred, love and uncertainty. If you just finished one of these, and are looking for something slightly different, but with the same themes and plot elements, look no further!
