Hello there Potatots,
It’s February! Lunar New Year is just around the corner
*cough* Next week *cough* It’s going to be another year of unwillingly receiving red packets from relatives that you haven’t seen for almost a century. Anywho, for those who have installed Fate Grand Order in there phone… Time to grind events /slap
As the title says, this post is solemnly dedicated to my fall in to this beautiful yet tragic series Fate from the famous TypeMoon company. Fate series is one TM’s many franchises; Fate is about Holy Grail Wars aka Seihai Sensou among mages Humans with magic roots/abilities to summon servants (any heroes from the past in world history) to help them fight each other till the end to obtain the holy grail. In normal English, it’s basically the Hunger games with magic involvement.
My fall in to Fate hell is during last year’s trip to Taiwan. I rode on the Fate Grand Order promo train twice and Gilgamesh, one of the character from the series lured me in to the trap. Prior to FGO, I do have basic knowledge of the Fate series. Thanks to the airing of the Studio Deen version of Fate/Stay Night anime on Animax back in 2006/2007. It was a cool show, but it did not catch my attention for long as why would a 9/10 year old girl watch an anime about fighting? It just doesn’t make sense, however years later…
Now Fate is my 3rd most invested fandom. I bought a lot of things without hesitation, my previous post regarding amiami is all Fate mech bought by me; even my friend who is in this hell earlier than me bought me Fate mangas without hesitation.
As for anime exposure, I do know of the Deen’s version of FSN, Fate/Zero, FSN UBW. My personal favorite and dear to my heart is Fate/Zero. Normally, Fate fans wouldn’t like Fate/Zero as much. Cause, to them… Fate/Zero is quite dark. Honestly, last year at a Fate themed party… My groupmates has 0 knowledge of Fate/Zero and I was shocked to the moon and back. They are long time fate fans and NONE of them watches Fate/Zero. Fate/Zero indeed was a dark series, but hey I like dark stuff. My soul is kinda dark from all the despair I had. I should find a time to binge the whole Fate anime chronology to educate myself better.
Overall Fate is an enjoyable series as it has world history, legends and folklore involved with it. If I could travel back in time to tell the 9/10 year old of myself about Fate, I would had gladly to. As prior to this post, I am currently VERY invested and emotionally sold to Fate Grand Order and this series.
If you do play or watch Fate related media, who is your favorite servant? Comment below to share.
My beloved servant is Lancer, both FSN and Fate/Zero.
See you guys next time ~ ❤
