    Zero is canon, and is fine, minus the censorship.

    Well I've finally started my To-Do list and I'm currently watching Snow White With the Red Hair. So far, even though I'm only partway through episode 2, it is by far the most enjoyable lowkey-tone show I've ever seen, easily. I'm not normally one for "sweetness" shows but this is just simply heart melting.

    @SpiritBaker You are perfectly entitled to your opinion regarding the Fate franchise, but those pacing issues you talk about are total bollocks for anyone who's not read the visual novel. You really need to stop comparing the two because they are inherently different mediums with very different strengths and weaknesses, often aimed at different audiences. The anime adaptations should be judged on their own merits and how they stand alone in telling their stories and whether or not they make sense by themselves. Otherwise you're doing a massive disservice to them.

    Right. Because watching a single fight from UBW on youtube wont immediately make you realise how strangely paced even those are.

    Zero is a bit guilty of this as well

    That's as maybe but it doesn't change the fact that making comparisons to the source material is invalid as they are totally different mediums that need to be able to stand on their own two feet. I never had any issues with either F/Z or UBW in terms of pacing and thoroughly enjoyed both, unable to put them down as I watched them.
    Nope. You must finish it. FINISH IT.

    I played the Zestiria game. One of the worst games ever.

    Who else agrees that Snow White is a top-shelf show?

    Marathoning through Shirobako. Can't believe that I miss this one before. This anime is so damn good. I almost cried in some parts.

    It is indeed a nice and relaxing show. But I think I'd put it in my "near the top" shelf though lol

    It was so refreshing to have a show with no stupid people in it. No one who made me want to pull my hair out and scream at my computer screen.

    Kaleid Liner is a spinoff, it references UBW and the original Fate, but mostly only in terms of character backgrounds and heroic spirit abilities. The whole set up is different as it's not a summon-heroic-spirit battle, but a collect-all-the-cards magical girl type of show.

    You should be fine watching it.

    Correction: It's not an *official* spin-off, as it is based on a doujin (fanwork).

    I think Type-moon bought over the serialization after the first season (from 2wei onwards it's Type-Moon).

    Not too sure about this one, but it's what I heard.

    Why does everybody act like fate can even be ruined by spoilers.

    Come on guys, it's a base, primal kind of fun. Fights, trainwreck characters, corny (in a good way) dialogue, waifus. The plot is basic, have no fear and watch whatever.

    I don't think it's specific to fate tbh, some people just hate spoilers about anything.

    I ever fucked up once while watching Clannad. I went s1 > Movie > s2 and ruined the s2 ending lmao. Didn't stop me from enjoying it doe

    Speaking of Kaleid Liner, for those who know a bit of my tastes, would it be something I should try out? I've never looked into it much.
