The VN.
Then Zero.
Then whatever you want.

Grand Order is shit.
The nasuverse is shit.

Read the VN

>but i don't want to read a VN
Then don't get into fate.

Fate is trash and only good thing about it is the loli service in Prisma Illya.
>>
>>151725783
Or just not give a fuck, because VN's are awful and just start with Zero.
>>
You don't. There, saved you a lot of trouble. Undeserved overrated shit.

Ideally you should read the source material of everything instead of adaptations. But even if you don't I'd say the order should be:
>Fate/Stay Night
>Fate/Zero
This covers the basic setting everything else is based on (although other works play by different rules but the basics are more or less the same). After that you can approach everything else at your own discretion.

I recommend playing next these so you get to know the Extra cast. They're a lovable bunch and their storyline is very interesting.
>Fate/Extra
>Fate/Extra CCC
>Fate/Extella

Then there is
>Fate/Apocrypha
>Fate/Strange Fake
>Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya

And finally last the one that brings everyone together
>Fate/Grand Order
You can enjoy FGO without reading everything else first, but you won't understand why a character acts like it does without prior knowledge of them. You can leave Apocrypha, Strange Fake and Prisma Illya for later since their characters don't have a big impact in the grand scheme of things, but you should definitely play Extra since most of its cast show up very often.

This is a good guide but I have the feeling you copypasted it from Reddit

>>151725632
start eating shit, it's the same thing
>>
>>151726271
How long would it take me to do this? Like how long did Stay Night+Zero take you? Or the whole Extra series? Not even speaking about the respective anime on top of that.
>>
>>151726334
Not that anon, but what does the source matter if it's a good guide?
>>
>>151725632
not a big fate fan but start with zero than UBW . who the fuck wastes his time in a 50 hours game ! only people with no life read that shit
>>
I still dont understand the op gif
>>
>>151725632
It's kinda pointless if you don't know Japanese, because otherwise you'll have to deal with either bad translations, bad adaptations, or a lack of accessible works

>>151725632
As per Glass Reflection
Start with Fate/Stay night (2006) It's a bit aged but gives you a good context for the others.
Then try Fate/Zero as it gives a good explination to what the hell was up with F/SN
Then end triumphantly(?) with Unlimited Blade Works. The show if you're wasting time, the Movie if you just want the story.

The actual chronological order is a bit weird as Stay Night and Unlimited Blade Works are alternate versions of the same story with Zero being a prequel to both. If you want to watch the chronological order, go Zero->Stay Night->Unlimited Blade Works since I feel that UBW has a happier ending and like to end things on a high note

Watch Fate/Zero, then watch any other of the anime adaptations, then go online and complain that whatever you just watched wasn't Fate/Zero.

Don't forget to watch Carnival Phantasm without reading the VN or reading Tsukihime or any of its sequels.

Fate/Stay Night VN alone takes over 50hs to complete all three routes. Zero doesn't take that long since it's a short LN. You can finish it in a day or two.

FSN had a lot of adaptations so while not recommended, you could skip the VN if you really don't want to sink much time on it. Fate route is there to establish the setting and basic rules while also being the most bland and boring. UBW route has a movie made by DEEN (it's shit) and a TV series by Ufotable so if you want to pick one, watch the TV series. The third route Heaven's Feel will be adapted into three movies with the first one coming out later this year so you could wait for them I guess.

Fate/Extra has 3 Servants to play with and two paths to choose. The ending is still the same so you don't have to force yourself to play it two more times unless you want to. I don't have my Extra save anymore but it should take 20-30hs to complete each playthrough.

Fate/Extra CCC needs to be played at least 2 times. One time with the Servant you used on your Extra playthrough and then one last time with Gilgamesh or again the Servant from your Extra playthrough doing the True Route, that's 30 to 50 hours. Can be shorter if you play using the same Servant because your level and stuff is carried over to NG+ but you'd miss using Gilgamesh.

Fate/Extella has fourth routes. Each one isn't very long but all of them need to be played to unlock the real ending so you're looking at another 30hs at least. Due to musou gameplay the non-story parts drag on quite a bit.

Caster caught Saber and is trying to make her her servant.

Series later show's that Caster is indeed a huger Saberfag.

>>151730578
Don't bother with the anime itself, read the manga and watch the OVAs for the loli fanservice
>>
>>151725632
What I want is someone to compose digests (covering all media in the fate franchise) that cover all the sexy times and break it down by character so that I can pick a character, catch up on all their sexy moments without having to wade through hours of extraneous details, and get to efficient fapping.

>>151733847
I don't think Fate is what you think it is.
>>
Is it bad that after going through F/SN VN, F/A, F/Z, and Prisma, I still feel that F/SN was the worst and a massive waste of time?

It was bad from a battle royale perspective, and bad from a 2D4U/philosophy perspective. Most of it was poorly done high school life/cooking scenes, and tried to somehow draw you in with 5/10 girls and long exposition.
>>
Always the VN. Why don't people ever fucking pick up the VN first and foremost? I don't care if they made an anime off of it READ THE VN FIRST.
>>
>>151734602
Because the VN is shit. Not as shit as the anime, but still super shit.
>>
>>151734602
The VN is literally
Exposition + 5/10 girls + standard shonen philosophy that people will somehow claim is 2D4U
Of all the Fate series, it comparatively has almost 0 focus on historical figures, which is half the fun of the series. 50 hours of my life I guess I'm never getting back.
>>
>>151725632
Seriously, don't. Unless you have enough autism for the lore shit now 10x worse courtesy of FGO.
