>>135604374 Watch Fate/zero. Then, supposing you liked it, watch Ufotable's Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works. If you have any questions about what happens in either show or about the setting in general, consult the Type-Moon wiki or browse through the relevant threads on 4chan or on Beast's Lair.
At some point you might want to watch Carnival Phantasm because it's sometimes pretty funny. Again, if you're curious about something you'd best consult the wiki or lurk the forums. It's not very hard to grasp most of the time, you can watch it with a superficial knowledge of most characters or sometimes even without any foreknowledge of any characters at all.
Some people might recommend you an anime with a title that contains the words Prisma Illya. These people are pedophiles and you should not engage them or listen to their advise.
>>135604772 It's overcomplicating everything. It's not nearly as exhausting to get into Nasuverse stuff as that chart makes it out to be. Supposing you don't plan on reading the VN and don't know Japanese, that is.
>>135605310 Also, I personally think that the strength of the VN is that it uses 3 different stories to show different sides to the cast of characters. Any of the routes taken individually are kind of lacking as far as characterization goes, but as a set they make Emiya Shirou into a really excellent character.
The UBW anime is cool and does a pretty solid job as an adaptation of one route, but the story is a bit one dimensional without the other two routes to synergize with.
>>135605546 Fate has a pretty awesome premise, its easy to want to get into it just from hearing "modern day wizards summon historical figures to fight each other with".
Also, any media that has this many people talking about it for this long has to be noteworthy in some way. It could be fantastic, it could be terrible, it could be super accessible/gateway. No one talks about average stuff for very long.
Fate route takes around 20 hours to finish. It's as long as Half Life 2.
As the other anon said, the experience of playing FS/N changes considerably depending on whether you've watched Fate/Zero. As someone who watched the prequel first, I can tell you they are both very well linked together, the game feels like a true sequel in almost every aspect. And even though you're getting spoiled most of the twists and secrets behind the plot of the game, it's more of an added bonus kind of thing and not frustrating at all. Besides, the big twist for the second route is left completely unspoiled.
