There are plenty of visual novels, manga, and video games that I haven't played yet, but whose anime adaptations I greatly enjoyed. I think whether it's for me or not will depend on the actual content, not whether I'm familiar with the source material or not.

    Yeah, that seems really harsh.

    I've watched Last Encore despite never having played the original game, and it hasn't dampened my enjoyment thus far. I highly doubt this anime will demand greater familiarity with the source material than that. Each singularity is mostly a self-contained story, and as long as you know the basic plot of GO (timeline is in peril, Chaldea goes around visiting different eras of history to fix everything) I think you should be fine.

    Have you watched first order? You know at least the problem that need to be solved in this fgo story, right? About the 7 eras that need to be fixed (called Singularity). This Babylonia is one of those eras, and the last one

    There's a difference between an anime adaptation of a book you haven't read and an anime adaptation of the last few chapters of a book you haven't read that assumes you're familiar with the rest of the book. It'd be like just jumping into the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy with Return of the King.

    More like watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow without watching/reading any of the previous chapter/movies

    The thing is that GO's story is explicitly divided up into self-contained chapters in the form of Singularities. Other than Mashu's character development, setting lore (which an adaptation will probably skim over anyways) and being able to summon the various Servants we encountered before (90% of which are almost certainly not going to be included), I'm honestly not sure how much you would be missing out on by experiencing them as independent stories.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I mean, obviously there's an added emotional catharsis to experiencing Babylon after accompanying Ritsuka & co through all the other Singularities, but I don't think lacking that means there's nothing worth viewing in it at all.

    You can't just watch this without knowing anything about the past chapters.

    Well for one thing, without Okeanos and London you don't know anything at all about Solomon going into Babylonia. And it was America that established Merlin was involved in GO's plot, and King Hassan was introduced in Camelot. And those examples all come with me not even knowing any details about Babylonia, just what characters show up, so I'm sure there's even more.

    Not even emotional catharsis. You won't even know why they're going to babylonia in the first place. Watching this without knowing the previous story is dumb because you don't even know the basic plot threads.

    That's why I said "as long as you know the basic plot". And yeah, you'd need to know "Solomon" was the villain, but I find it hard to believe someone could be on this forum for the past few years and not be spoiled as to that.

    You don't get it do you? Going to babylonia is very specific thing because we're specifically looking for something after all the previous clues we'e gotten. You're already making a wrong assumption because you don't know all the previous story by saying 'basic plot'.

    "How do you know this wasn't made for non-FGO fans?"
    (explicitly made based on FGO fans voting on what they want and how they want it regardless to it being like animating the last two days of Heaven's Feel with no prior adaptation work)

    It's like someone ask "how do you know it's not made for Tsukihime fan" if Ufo suddenly want to make a short adaptation of Spark Liner High

    Can't wait for all of those viewers fresh from First Order excited about that Merlin cameo from Fate/Apocrypha wondering when Matt learned about her NP or who that skull dude is.

    It's baffling how hard it is for people to understand that the anime is not for those who haven't played the game despite knowing that. I've already given up on convincing any of them otherwise.

    They’ll have to wonder what the deal with da vinci is first.
