The official website of the Fate/Zero fantasy television anime released three downloadable "Yoku Wakaru Seihai Sensou (Chūkyū Hen)" (Holy Grail War Made Simple (Intermediate Level)) charts on Thursday. The series' producers hope fans will use the documents to help them enjoy Fate/Zero.
One chart describes traits of key characters in the series as well as their personal relationships with each other. Another document provides a glossary with terms important in understanding the Fate/Zero anime. A third "beginning level" chart describes the basic master/servant relationships seen throughout the series. All three charts are a available for download in the JPEG and PDF file formats.
The anime adapts the prequel novel by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Phantom - The Animation, Blassreiter) to Type-Moon's Fate/stay night visual novel software. The story is set a decade before Fate/stay night and reveals the 4th Holy Grail War that sets the stage for the war in the software.
On October 1, the Fate/Zero anime began airing in Japan and Aniplex of America also began streaming the series, subtitled in eight languages, worldwide via the Niconico Live and Niconico Channel services.
