The Fate series is based around a recurring war between magicians over the legendary Holy Grail. Every few years the Grail appears to grant a magus a powerful wish. Seven mages are selected to duel each other (to the death if they so choose) for the right to claim the Grail and its wish. For the sake of the duel, each magus summons a Servant: powerful figures of myth or history who fight on their masters' behalves. The Servants each fall into a specific class depending on the weapons or fighting styles they use. Fate/Stay Night specifically follows main character Emiya who was raised by a powerful mage and unwittingly gets dragged into the new Holy Grail war. A mage of growing power, Emiya accidentally summons Saber, one of the most powerful Servants, to fight for him and manages to ally himself with Rin: one of his classmates at school who is herself an adept mage involved in the Holy Grail War.
The original series is still an old favorite of mine, though you can see (in comparison to Fate/Zero or the Unlimited Blade Works reboot) the original publisher's limited budget in effect during certain action scenes where fights are not fully animated out but feature quick jump cuts to static images of characters swinging weapons or blocking attacks. The series also has a much stronger romantic vibe due to the first Fate visual novel games being part-adult oriented dating sims. Thus the onus in this show is highly focused on main character Emiya's feelings for Saber and his nearly harem anime-esque interactions with other characters like Rin or Sakura. Despite the fact that Fate/Zero and the reboot are stronger series, in my opinion, this original show is still worth watching as it is a great mash up of rom-com and fantasy. Fans will definitely want to pick up this series, though you should absolutely watch the more action/horror oriented Fate/Zero prequel or the expanded budget reboot (the latter also gave a more prominent role to the mysterious and antagonistic Archer who gets written out of the original series a bit too quickly). Sadly, both of the newer shows are also extremely hard to find on DVD or Blu-Ray for an affordable price. You're best bet is to check them out on Netflix or Crunchyroll.
The show does start off with a lot of information presented to you, but that's done to break down the plot inform the viewer of the general rules of the Holy Grail war.
Do yourself a favor and pick up this anime!
Anyway, the DVDs are all in a single case, with each DVD in its own holder. The DVD quality is good and the animation is, though dated, still acceptable. At least it's not Akira-level anime lol.
Based in the original visual novel by: Type Moon this anime covers the entire Saber's route
A must buy to any anime collector
The other version of this show the US version called Fate / Stay Night TV Complete Collection was OK at best and if I were to rate it I would give it 3 stars, it lacks the artwork and strong story line that Fate / Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works has.
