A popular anime franchise that I often hear about is the Fate series. The Fate/Stay series is based on a Japanese visual novel from Type-Moon. The Fate series has a number of different installments, the first anime was released in 2006. I heard good things about this series but could never get into it.
First it’s not well animated in my opinion, the characters are stiff. The show is largely dull. While I have seen some of the fighting scene and enjoyed them, I can’t bare to watch the series and have to wait for someone to edit the scenes on YouTube. I just find the story to be soulless and therefore pointless. I won’t say it’s terrible but I certainly didn’t care for it.
