Fate/Zero Synopsis

With the guarantee of granting any wise, the omnipotent Holy grail triggered 3 wars in the past, each too cruel and brutal to leave a victor. Despite that, the rich Einzbern family is confident that the 4th Holy grail War will be different; namely, with a vessel of the Holy grail now in their grasp. Solely for this reason, the much hated “Magus Killer” Emiya Kiritsugu is chosen by the Einzbernss, with marriage to their only daughter Irisviel as binding contract.

Kiritsugu now stands at the middle of the ruthless game of survival, facing off against 6 other participants, each armed with an ancient familiar, and support by unique desires and ideals. Together with his own familiar, Saber, the well known mercenary soon discovers his greatest opponent in Kotomine Kirei, a priest who looks for answer from the emptiness within himself in search for Kiritsugu.
