Based on the hit video game series, Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel is a trilogy of films released in 2017 and 2020. Adapting a story element from the hit visual novels, the movie served as the fourth anime iteration of the Type-Moon franchise. Set in a world involving mages and a Holy War, the Heaven's Feel trilogy reimagines the main series' story with a darker, more shadowy threat.
Announced several years ago, the trilogy finally concluded last year, bringing its version of the Holy Grail War to a close. The series still has many fans, however, many of whom have yet to see the trilogy's finale. Here's how fans can legally watch each movie in Japanese and English, as well as where the DVDs and Blu-rays can be purchased.
Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel's Story
The Heaven's Feel films are based on a route -- the final route -- of the same name from the visual novels. Like the previous tellings, it focuses on Shirou Emiya, a young mage who finds himself involved in the Fifth Holy Grail War. This conflict is a battle royale against the various mages involved and their Servant spirits. Driving Shirou's ambitions is a desire to win the war in the name of justice and defend his abused friend Sakura. All the while, a mysterious darkness begins to invade the land, with the pestilence it brings affecting Sakura.
The ensuing sequels see Shirou, now ousted from the Holy War, more determined than ever to defend Sakura as her sickness grows and merciless shadows begin killing people. Things only intensify as a dramatic incident happens to Sakura, with Shirou and others pledging to end the Holy Grail War for good.
