Overview
Expanding on the hit anime and novel series, Fate/Zero is a faithful manga adaptation that also offers extended scenes and never-before-seen content Dive into Gen Urobuchi and Shinjiro's prequel to Type-Moon's Fate saga The fourth Holy Grail War has begun, and seven magi must summon heroes from history to battle each other to the death. Only one magi and hero pair will remain to claim the grail and have their wishes granted Kiritsugu Emiya was once an assassin but now fights in this war to save the world from those who would destroy it with the grail's power.
"It has dynamic, multifaceted characters, explores great philosophies and themes, and tops it off with large helpings of action. It also has the will to go deep into dark, psychological territory to improve both its characters and story."
-Kotaku

Seven humans have been chosen by the Holy Grail to fight a war through familiars who happen to be legendary figures from history, including King Arthur and Alexander the Great. But these avatars are not what you'd expect: Arthur's an iron-willed woman and Alexander is a mighty bear of a man. As the players meet their masters and the chess pieces assemble for battle, bonds are forged and tested, with betrayals imminent. Based on the popular dark anime, this is a fairly standard commercial manga adaptation: it's got pretty art but lacks true artistic initiative. Some characters are extremely generic, forcing the few who are genuinely alluring to carry the story. The plot is confusing and frantic; a lot happens, but a main character is frustratingly hard to find. Older teens will enjoy the action, and its momentum makes the reader curious for the continuation, but the book fails to improve upon the anime's flaws and instead has carried them over to the page with the unfortunate addition of stiff dialogue.
