Fate/Zero takes place ten years prior to the events of Fate/Stay Night and follows the events that take place during the "Fourth Holy Grail War" with protagonist Kiritsugu Emiya leading the charge for the series. The Einzenbern family has lost the previous three "Holy Grail Wars" and is looking to finally make a name for themselves by taking home the victory with this latest war. Luckily, they have Emiya, "The Magus Killer" under their employ who will do whatever it takes for the family. Unfortunately for all the participants in this latest war, the Holy Grail may not be all that it seems.
Fate/Stay has a long and complicated history among anime fans, creating a wealth of series and video games for the franchise itself. While it may be a bit confusing keeping up with all the different series that hold the "Fate" name, Fate/Zero is a wonderful place to start with it being a prequel series to what had taken place in the Fate/Stay series.
