Might be a hot take, but Fate/Zero is overwhelmingly superior to Fate/Stay Night and I'm glad that I didn't try and watch the latter first. Because it would've probably discouraged me from seeing the prequel.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimted Blade Works is a more correct sequel to Zero than Fate/Stay Night.

I actually just came here to tell about how I've been watching Fate/Zero. Seems somebody brought it up before I had the chance. :P

I personally didn't care much for Fate/Zero. The only parts that I really liked were the times that Alexander the Great was on screen.

In fact, I mainly dislike the show because Alexander was criminally underused. A character as great as him ought to be the main character, in my opinion.

But anyway, hope you enjoy it. It's definitely one of those shows that I think everyone should watch at least once.

I've watched it at least 100 times since I first saw it yesterday. I was completely blown away at the end of the episode when this came on, especially since I was expecting the previous ED (which was also pretty good).

Kaguya-sama has a kino adaptation, Kaguya's mangafaces are better though tbf they're hard to pull out outside monochrome pages.

The Promised Neverland is alright, not as good as MiA in pulling "kids in an edgy setting that tries to kill and torment them in every opportunity" (for now) but it's a high standard to begin with. High-quality adaptation with good music, art, and animation either way. I like the ED more than the OP.

Shieldbro is meh.

Favorite OP songs are Boogiepop's and Kaguya's.
