The Holy Grail War wages unabated. The Servants face the impossible task of allying against Caster to win additional command spells, while beneath this thin veneer of amity, their Masters plot to destroy each other. Saber herself must battle not just the monsters bearing down upon her but the doubts inside her own heart about the path of valor she has chosen. After all, what is the place of ancient righteousness in a modern world where the only rule is to win at any cost? As the Holy Grail War enters its deadliest phase, the world becomes witness to both inconceivable horrors and incredible heroism - but the question remains which will prevail.
Hakaze, princess of the Kusaribe mage clan, has been betrayed and marooned on an island by her own people. They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic. The deal is made, and the battle that will determine civilization's fate is begun: but who will play the part of its villain, and who its savior?
If you enjoyed the world-encompassing magical systems, the opposing factions, the intense competition & emotional interaction between characters in Fate/Zero 2, I'd suggest you also check out Blast of Tempest for similar themes, atmosphere, and general feel.
I really like both animes because they have a lot of action and magic in them, but still have a strong and interesting storyline as well. I really recommend to watch them both!
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Madoka Magica has several key things in common with Fate Zero: stunningly animated battles, duels that get your heart racing, generous helpings of magic and fantasy, and an interesting bunch of tragic characters that must rail against their fate. Madoka Magica also possesses a similarly dark atmosphere, with colours leaning towards crisp gloominess, and, of course, haunting music by Yuki Kajiura. Thrills and drama come as naturally to this show as it does to Fate Zero 2, so that any fan of the latter would adore the former.
Both of these anime don't hold back when it comes to bringing out dark themes. These anime share the same brilliant writer, Gen Urobuchi.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
These are both epic anime with amazing heros and heroins wanting to do good for the world even though it seems unatainable.
