Story: Shirou Emiya lost his parents in a fire when he was young and was later adopted by a sorceror by the name of Kiritsugu Emiya. Although he was full of admiration for his adopted father and yearns to become an ally of justice, Shirou has limited powers and was unable to become a strong sorceror like his father. That is until one fateful day, he was drawn into the Holy Grail War- a series of battles amongst powerful sorcerors to fight for the possession of a relic that will grant one's wishes, the Holy Grail. There are altogether seven 'Masters' who can summon their respective 'Servants' from different classes. As Shirou becomes entangled in this war, he had to summon a female 'Servant', known as Saber, in order to protect himself.
