Random Compiled Fate/Zero News

It’s been awhile since I did a random post… and since I had just posted a review of the latest episode of Fate/Zero, I figured that I might as well post some other random interesting things/news on Fate/Zero. =)

This post is basically random stuff related to Fate/Zero that I had stumbled upon on. Most of these stuff are stuff that you may have already seen before if you are an avid fan that track Fate/Zero news. But for others who usually don’t, this post is just to provide some fun reading for you.

Hope you enjoy the post.

FATE/ZERO Posters

These are posters that comes along with the Bluray discs for the first season of Fate/Zero.

Personally, I really like the style of the posters. There are meant to be 14 poster designs in total if I am not wrong, but I am having trouble finding the rest. =) (its 1:20am and I’ve got work tomorrow so I am not going to spend too much time looking for more… feel free to share any you find)


Which Fate/Zero Character Would You Date?

Japan recently (April ’12) did a poll to see which character people would like to date.

No surprise that the winner for the guy’s category is the “main” male lead Kiritsugu. Here’s what one voter had to say “He has adult elegance and sex appeal,”. Well… after the latest episode on his past and with Lancer gone, I am not shocked since the other choices would be weirder.

Characters the ladies chose

  1. Kiritsugu Emiya (38.2%)
  2. Kirei Kotomine (10.7%)
  3. Lancer (9.9%)
  4. Archer (9.2%)
  5. Kariya Matō (8.4%)

As for the guys… Well the winner goes to Saber. Once again no surprise there.

Here’s a reason why guys like her “although her fate is so sad, she is living cheerfully, with strength.” Do you guys like her for that reason as well? I think that’s the reason why I don’t like her. She comes across as being hardheaded and kinda deluded to me. =P

Characters the guys chose

  1. Saber (34.1%)
  2. Irisviel von Einzbern (17.3%)
  3. Rin Tōsaka (10.6%)
  4. Sakura Matō (10.6%)
  5. Maiya Hisau (10/6%)

Who would you choose?

Ufotable Fate/Zero Cafe

Here are some shots from the Fate/Zero Cafe

This Kiri burger is modeled after the one Kiri ate in ep 12.

Assassin Omelette served at Tokushima Cafe

Archer Golden Cafe is serving this special dessert

And this is a Maiya dish.

Drinks include Saber Blue Nata de Coco with optional gin, Kiritsugu bitter ice coffee jelly, and Maiya tea soda with optional vodka.

Drinks include Tokoimi’s grape juice (can be substituted for wine), Archer Golden Banana Drink, Kirei’s Jasmine drink, and Assassin Tapioca drink

And these are the plates as well as tumbler designs in the cafe. (Such cute chibi art…)

  1. Oi. Oi.
    Tohsaka Rin and Matou Sakura are just little girls in this anime!
    Japanese otaku are a bunch is sick bastards as always.
    😀
    The whole concept of choosing Fate Zero as dating poll is weird to begin with.
    I cant imagine dating any of them. For me, this is an anime of “no good guy” to begin with. These guys are all wrong / bad / evil to some extent.
    >_>

    • Lol.. Well.. one can always hope that those voting for Rin and Sakura are young boys and girls? =/
      (I am just trying to find an excuse)

      Hmm.. I think I might choose Lancer. Go Lancer! =D Though I might end up killing all the other girls around him… Which means it might be as good as choosing death… hmm… =p

  2. The Japanese have some odd choices on some of these. For the dating options, they must be going by appearance alone because there is small reason to want to date Kiritsugu and Kotomine is the very last person you would want to date. Then again, if it were appearance only, I’d expect Gilgamesh to be at or near the top. Poor Kariya doesn’t get any love </3
    Not much competition for best girl considering Saber and Iri are the only female main characters….

    The most most unforgivable person (probably more accurate to say "villain of my favorite show") category is even stranger. Nausicaa from the eponyous anime, Magneton from Pokemon and Haynuu and Oyro from Higurashi are not even villains. You also made a mistake on #10. It should be Takano Miyo, not Takano Hifumi (that's the villain's innocent grandpa!).
