Fate in Order
If you want to watch the Fate series in chronological order, here is how you should do it:
1) Start with Fate/Zero. This prequel anime tells the story of what happened leading up to the Holy Grail War featured in Fate/Stay Night. It’s important to watch this first so that you understand all of the events that led up to Fate/Stay Night.
2) After watching Fate/Zero, move on to Fate/stay night. This is where the main story takes place and follows Shirou Emiya as he gets drawn into the Holy Grail War.
3) Once you’ve finished watching Fate/stay night, you can then move on to any of the spin-off series if you’re interested in them. These include Fate/Apocrypha, Fate/Extra Last Encore, and more.
4) Finally, end with Heaven’s Feel. This movie trilogy adapts one of the routes from fate/stay night and tells a completely different side of Shirou’s story.
If you watch the anime series in this order, you will understand all that is going on and will not be confused by any story elements later on.
