    If it were me, I’d say skip everything Studio DEEN did with this and just play the VN, watch Ufotable’s UBW and Fate/Zero. In that order. Fate is, without a doubt one of the best franchises out there and actually my first VN. when I played the Fate route, my heart broke and I shed a manly tear. When I played UBW, I was impressed with the writing and myself for figuring out who archer was before the big reveal. Heaven’s Feel was a LOT of exposition, but well written.

I have maintained a neutral opinion of them over the years and I respect them for what they are. But whenever I read them I have this surreal feeling that it isn’t the same. i can’t pinpoint if it’s the author’s style or if the original ending is too ingrained in my mind.
