Synopsis[edit]

Shirou Emiya is an average student that is dragged into a war over the Holy Grail, an item that can fulfill any wish or desire. The contestants all use spirit servants to fight each other, however as Emiya is a newcomer and unskilled he must join together with Rin Tohsaka to survive the battles.

Reception[edit]

DVD Talk wrote that the movie was "basically a clip-show" and that while it the action was polished, it had "a rushed, incomplete feeling" and was for "fans of the series only".[4] A reviewer for the Anime News Network gave an overall positive review but mentioned that the film felt like it had been overly edited.[5]
