The story starts from zero: the beginning...
The Holy Grail War - in this ultimate battle field, in order to obtain the power of the "Holy Grail" that grants any unattainable wish, seven "masters" summon "servants" and fight against each other until the last one survives.
After three inconclusive Holy Grail Wars, the fourth battle has finally started. Hoping to win the battle, each master is heading to the new battlefield, Fuyuki. However, there is a man who is confused and struggling, unable to find meaning in the war. His name is Kirei Kotomine. He wonders why he has been appointed to this task, but without any answers, he encounters his archrival - Kiritsugu Emiya, a master who craves the miracle Holy Grail most of all.
The untold truth of the Fourth Holy Grail War that occurred 10 years before Fate/Stay Night - the truth of the battle fought by Shiro's adopted father, Rin's father, and young Kirei Kotomine - is about to be revealed!

Good value Box set
by AnimeBuster -
The set actually looks way nicer and better than the picture displayed. The trade card is unique and illustration booklet that comes along is not too bad. Everything else comes as advertised, could have improved a little more on the individual Bluray case though. The thinness if the case ( not the collection box itself ) give off a kind of cheap feeling. Other than that, this is worth the price if you have and save up enough money
Only for the biggest of Fate fans
So as you may have already seen, this thing is expensive as all get out. AND it's only half the series. But you are paying that much for stunning quality and arguably the best English dub to ever grace the face of the earth.
by Dog man
Fate zero is a masterpiece not with out flaws but still a masterpiece right up there with the garden of sinners and you can watch it on crunchyroll and Netflix sub and dub are both great and now farewell dear otaku/nerd

Can be worth it
Aniplex is horrible gouging anime fans with insanely high prices. However, if there is a anime that kind of justifies the price it is Fate/Zero. Simply put it is the best show I have ever seen and it will probably remain that way for many years. The animation is done by Ufotable who always have the best looking anime. Characters are all amazing. If u can spend the cash it is worth it.
Simply the Best
Fate/Zero is just the best show I have ever seen. Multiple view points, strategies, action, jaw-dropping animation, and excellent characters. If you do not know about the Fate series it is about mages summoning spirits of epic heros of the past from fiction, non-fiction and legends. They fight in a battle royal over the holy grail which can grant any wish.
The box is beautiful, discs nice looking and there are extras that are a great plus. However, I must put the same caution here that I put in all Aniplex releases. It is expensive as gold but if you can afford it then it is a gold quality show.

This 'arc' gives us a prequel setup of some masters (and their respective families) and servants - some we know and others are newly introduced. We also learn a great deal about the generation of mages and fighters in the Grail War, prior to the "kids" taking the helm in "/Stay Night". So in place of revisiting the series, chapter by chapter with a brief synopsis as a review, I'm going to leave it as it is right here. Frankly, the only way to truly know is to watch it regardless of the thoroughness of reviews. But I will close with this: 99% of anime fans will be exceedingly hard pressed to find a series as stellar as "Fate/Zero", across the board (i.e. art, characters, story, music, etc.). "Stay Night" is an exceptionally close 2nd without a doubt, matched only with the newest incarnation of "Unlimited Blade Works". These are worth every single moment, totally immersed in the worlds the studios created.
I've waited for so long.

I have been waiting for so long to have a reprint of the Fate/Zero box sets. Getting an affordable copy on eBay is nearly impossible with the endless amount of hoarders who know people will spends hundreds to get what they want. This maybe the last chance all Fate fans have to own a rare piece from a series that has made a giant impact on the anime industry ever since it was released to the public.
You'll pay a holy relic's worth of money for this box set... but it's worth every penny.
by Cutsceneaddict -
Zero has a daring amount of depth that its sequels lack. The characters utterly captivate, and as the battle for the Holy Grail unfolds, masks come off, revealing the ugliness and beauty in the character’s motivations.
One part Shakespearean morality play and one-part shonen, Fate/Zero packs in all the components of a classical Greek tragedy. From its cinematic scenes and movie-like score, to its driven characters, who are as much individuals as they are symbols of diverse ideals, Fate/Zero is a true epic.
The only downside to this set is that the box is matted paper, rather than a polished finish. It feels a bit “cheap,” but it’s ultimately a small complaint in the grand scheme of hi-def quality, cast interviews, and other goodies. Don’t miss your chance to own this masterpiece before it sells out once again and scalpers sky-rocket the price!
Dissapointed by the October 2016 Reprint.
by Ethameshep -
Like many, I purchased the second set of Fate/Zero following the first volume going out of print. It's safe to say I was not too impressed by the quality of the original release of this title considering it's premium price tag, but the October 2016 reprint has me outright disappointed. Upon first inspection, something about it seemed odd. It was when I placed this on the self with my second volume that I realized what it was. The reprinted edition not only doesn't match the original, but looks considerably cheaper. The artbox is off-white, has a different texture, and the text on the spine is grey and not black and with a slight sheen. To be fair, the contents are veritably unchanged and the slightly wider box makes it easier to take the discs out (a minor gripe I had with the original edition). However, since the box is what you will see most of the time, and as someone who values the shelf appeal of a release as much as the show itself, I am very unsatisfied with this product.
Masterpiece Worthy of Your Collection
by Vince -
First, let's address the elephant in the room... the price. It's not cheap to own on Blu-Ray. You'll have to do some soul searching to figure out if 1080p and 5.1 surround is worth it.
It should be noted that the sets were carefully packed to prevent damage during shipping. Kudos to Right Stuf Anime for taking the time to do this properly.
Fate/Zero is a good example of what modern anime should be. Very high production values in both visuals & sound. The battles feature some of the best animation in a TV show, but from a plot perspective, it's just eye candy. The intrigue is what truly drives the great storytelling.
The characters aren't labeled as stereotypical good or evil. That is left to the viewer to decide. There are philosophical thoughts. Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few? Do the ends justify the means? What does it really mean to be a leader? There's so much to say but it would spoil it for you.
Fate/Zero is a masterpiece worthy of your collection.
Fate Zero Box Set Is Pretty Epic!
by Shenpai -
Saw the streamed version of Fate Zero.. I was deeply in love with the series. Over personal choice, I had to go with this box set because the characters and setting had it really going for me. The story is super amazing and I would advise watching it instead of reading a summary text of it. It's that amazing!
Product: Fate/Zero Box Set is probably one of the most beautiful box sets I have so far and I've only started collecting some. To start of, much like Aniplexes release... You wil get a very rigid art box, episodes 1-13, some bonus extras and an art book! Part it with Pt. 2 and you will see that both the boxes can be put together side by side to form the otherhalf of the cover art. (a nice touch and makes your anime collection epic!)
Overall, Fate Zero is an amazing series that anyone should try and get into and the dub is pretty good too! If you have the cash lying around go for the box set because, as said earlier, it will make a pretty epic piece to your collection!

It's the fate series. I'd say it's worth every penny. Visually one of the best. I like this series much more than ubw's animation. In my opinion there was more natural feeling to this than ubw but it could be the color and setting of the series that gives off the vibe. I'd say fate zero was and is an anime for the history books like code geass a near perfection. Thats my opinion.
Really ridiculous price for a fantastic series.
This is a fantastic show but I refused to pay the asking price (which is absurd)-let's just say I imported it (not from japan) for less than 1/3 of the asking price here. If you have the money and want this set go for it.
Fate/Zero Box 1 Product Review
by GoldNautilus -
I've got to say, Aniplex really hit it out of the park with this one y'all, it really is a jewel. To start, the sound, video, and subs are great, as expected from AoA. But the real pull of this set is the box that houses everything, which is just gorgeous. It's a thick, sturdy box with a fabric-like texture and raised lettering. While one side has key art, the other has an ingrained silver foil magic circle that you can put together with part two to make it whole, it's quite genius packaging. It also comes with a dub, a booklet, the soundtrack, and a bonus DVD containing interviews. Yes, it could have come with art cards or a poster or something at this price, but with a box so beautifully designed and all the aforementioned extras, I'd say it's a worthwhile trade.
A Show for Kings
by Rob -
A beautiful presentation of a gorgeous series. I fell in love with the high detail and fantastic story of Fate/Zero. I was hesitant to purchase this set because of the high price but I am not disappointed. The fabric case adds richness worthy of a king.
Subtitles or Japanese translation subtitles are both available for either dub.
Price point is the only drawback
by Steven -
An amazing show in an impressive package. the box itself is sturdy and large, looks imposing when shelved
Soundtrack is fairly comprehensive, although it lacks opening or ending themes, the art collections included are likewise of high quality, if somewhat scant.
one of the highest quality collectors sets I've ever purchased, although the insane price point means I can only truly recommend it to diehard fans of the series.
Expensive, but well crafted.
by R -
This is a well made and beautiful collection. The only downside is the steep price -- a common theme amongst Aniplex releases.
