Heaven's Feel II: Lost Butterfly delivers what Fate/Stay Night fans have been waiting for with quality animation and fantastic pacing; it fixes all the minor errors that let the previous film down and will leave viewers desperate to see what the final film has in store.
Fate/Apocrypha’s second half does well to bring its story to a conclusion, pitching in with some fantastic fight sequences and art direction, all the while showing some good character development along the way.
The first half of Fate/Apocrypha sets itself up as an exciting and tense action series, while also focusing on its deep and satisfying character relationships. With no ties to previous entries in the Fate universe, this also makes it a great place to start for newcomers.
Fate/Grand Order -mortalis: stella- is what you'd expect from a soulless manga adaptation of a video game; you’re better off re-watching the anime film First Order again rather than giving this a read.
It’s too early to tell right now whether this will end up being the best adaptation of Fate/Stay Night so far, but as a stand-alone movie, it delivers exactly what you expect from this route and from this production company.
If you’ve already binged on the first batch of episodes, and are invested in the story, it’s worth binge-watching these too as it’ll only take you a few hours. If you’ve yet to take the plunge however, I recommend you do not; there’s plenty of better anime, including Fate ones, to find on Netflix.
