THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
HOLY SHIT at the following,

This is truly the best shit ever to happen for me! Berserker's TRUE FORM FINALLY! I can only say I am still shaken at its presentation, Berserker's emotional output there and most of all Saber's reactions to it. WOW! That's the best and shortest to describe it now due to total OVER 9000 satisfaction and excitement!

Indeed as the time passes midnight. Today the 10th is indeed Alexander's death and I have to say Archer was plain LAME AND CHEAP! That sword is like cheesy magical wand to swing around and poof! All of Alexander's army is gone! Just like that! SOOOOOOOO CHEEEEEESYYYYYY! Did not like it at all.

To further argue this I would have to say the Alexander's powers comes much more Noble in gathering his army VS Archer's powers come from stolen treasures that have Nobility for they were never really fashioned by Gilgamesh. Rather stolen and no stealing in true sense is anything Noble even in taking it from defeated enemies. Alexander in fact had some Noble ways of paying respect to his men that have died upon their burial. Gilgamesh would merely spit and insult his defeated opponents. Well IMO that is. Hence a small upstanding I have against Gilgamesh. Moreover I am very CON for Gilgamesh and in fact wished Alexander won over him.

About Berserker's true form, still fresh and excited over it. There is much to compliment the setup and going about of how gloriously it was handled. First of all one does not need to go further than the spoiler
to see how nicely it was set-out. Saber’s past in ROUND TABLE! That was so gloriously well done despite being short and the angles might have been better. It truly showed of Lancelot’s emotional state during that time. Sad, angry and desperate in the current situation he is in. Berserker’s face was done very well there and the atmosphere with the BGM marvelously intermingled together. Moreover Berserker’s appearances in the spoiler
truly showed his hideous infernal RAGE! Such rage! Truly a most exciting part as much as Alexander was in his fighting with Archer.

About Kariya’s illusions, I find them rather creepy in the spoiler
I wonder how insane it was for him? It looked rather horrifying of his suffering more than before due to the atmosphere. Most likely those filthy worms. I pretty much understand now of Zouten's saying “First Worm to have taken Sakura’s innocence” meaning exactly. It’s really disgusting to think of it plain and simple. However IT is most likely responsible for his illusions there. Being the most powerful of worms within him. Less I am wrong on this cause. That being said, Kariya’s suffering was shown most well and it still rings creepy within me with perhaps some deep pity for him since last time with the Aoi incident.

About the death of Alexander, a true pity in the spoiler
such death to fallen upon OUR DEAR RIDER! Such a shame that he did not splice open Gilgamesh in the following,

DAMN IT! TT_TT You got my TEARS Rider! I respected you! TBH I always liked Alexander for his ways and conquering. Perhaps it was brutal and truly ruthless but deep down Alexander was not that bad. It was misconception or exaggeration to made him out to be like that. Mainly due to most testimonies being vexed upon his fights and conquests only. Very little was made out of his private life and I mentioned that in episodes before. However once you get to know Alexander and join his cause he is cool. Go against him and his ambitions and he is mean to you. His mentality was always you are with him/his ideals or you are against him. Giving him bad impression was always the worst.

After having a talk with my father, I got reminded and refreshed of the "True Accomplishments" of Alexander the Great! I will point them out:

-Made a multicultural Empire and instaured multiculturalism across the Globe. (You can see that in his army.)

-Was promoted to Pharaoh by Egyptians despite them not being obliged to do so. A great Honour this was indeed for him.

-With Alexander YOU ARE ALL EQUAL! So the saying goes.

-Alexander never assigned anyone to succeed him but instead built Alexandria that was for trade originally only to become the world's greatest library.

-GREAT NEWS! Alexander's Tomb is found to be rumoured in Egypt and so is Cleopatra one. Point being it's very close to find out of his Tomb in Egypt. Searches are being done, however the confirmation of his last remaining place is found it.

-Alexander started having bad luck when his beloved Horse died. Hence why they made the chariot die instead. If they Horse died, Alexander would not even want to fight IMO.

Ah! So many things to say of the real Alexander that were somewhat captured within him in this series. I will leave it at that for some final thoughts of Alexander The Great! HE WAS ADMIRABLE!

About thee end, I am seriously wondering WTF is up with Irisviel and Kiritsugu in the spoiler
it’s rather worrisome and Kiritsugu’s face looks rather very serious to say the least.

Finally 3 Cheers for the Berserker parts! Best stuff of the episode really. Might edit later.

PS: Right now Berserker upgraded this from 9 to officially 10. I was thinking it deserved after this episode and last one it's final 10 earning. Let's hope it keeps it there for me.

Let the smackdown begin and this was an incredible episode of non stop action.





Berserker's true form and name:





Simply amazing. This episode is so far my favorite of the part 2 of this season. Got a lot of respect for both Archer and Rider this episode for the show they've put on. Next time, I wonder if Saber will deliver the smackdown against Berserker.

I am butthurt that Rider died!!! Even if I knew it was coming. But I'm gonna give this a 5/5. The 1/5 is probably from some Type-moon hater.

Well we all knew that Rider's gonna end up so, but I expected him at least to make a scratch on that "all mighty" Gilgamesh. Why the hell couldn't he just throw the sword towards that blondie's neck.

The preview is just awesome but I am not sure how they are going to conclude everything in 48 minutes (1 episode with Kiritsugu mindufcking himself as well as Kirei and discussion discussions, Saber vs Lancer&Gil, Ilya, Kiritsugu vs Kirei fight, don't forget about Karyia and then we got the epilogue/conclusion that should be at least 10 minutes - some shit about Saber, some shit about Shirou, some shit about Ilya, some shit about Rin and so on).

Anyway that aside - this episode was of a very high quality, 5/5.

Epic episode, this is what Fate/Zero should have been all along glorious visuals and stunning essentially non-stop action.

But screw the anime again I found myself

I don't know about that but I am butthurt that Rider lost indeed. Hence my notation of taking Archer's sword for Magical Girl Wand to magically swung open a Deus Ex machina portal of disruption to win easily.

Ridiculous! Archer is OVER POWERED! Plain and simple.

According to your list, one of your favorite animes is Evangelion, otherwise known as the Super Robot anime that isn't focused on the fights. I'm genuinely curious about how that works.

Well there goes one factor for hating him for me that is. The rest attributes to F/SN and UBW parts and what he did in them.

Gilgamesh mentioning Enkidu as his only comrade before the fight started. T_T

Wow the whole animation of Ionian Hetairoi falling apart was breathtaking. (Definitely never imagined it like that when I read the novel lol) Iskander's final charge was glorious as well.

Gilgamesh bringing out Ea was freaking amazing as well...

Finally! How I've waited to see delicious Arturia despair over one of her own knights trying to kill her!

Kiritsugu vs Kirei next week at last.

Just damn this episode...

You should notice that Archer used EA& chain& Gate of Babylon together to bring Rider down. If one is missing or Rider's chariot is available, no one can tell who is the winner at last.
PS: Seems next ep will show the conversation between Kiritsugu and Avenger? Let's see how the work will be done...

Gil's treasures are his NP that's the whole point.It's his accomplishment as the oldest king(in FSN,FZ that is).And to be more accurate most of the NP we see other Heroic Spirits carry come from Gil's Vault or were made according to the legends of the weapons Gil has( like Excalibur).So it would be more accurate to say that his weapons were stolen not the other way around.Then again only with Enkidu and Ea he still is way more powerful than other servants.GoB is just to show off his power as the King.

First time ever that I saw the key-shaped sword that is GoB. It's been mentioned in the VN stats and in the novel stats about it's true form but I don't think I've ever seen Gil take it out.
The Ea vs IH part was pretty awesome but I kinda expected more chaos when the RM was collapsing.
The death charge was pretty epic though. All the way to Enkidu popping out. Goodbye Rider.
And finally Lancelot is revealed. Saber's face is full of despair but not very despaired that she's suppose to be unable to fight back. Oh well
Amazing ep of F/Z overall.
Next episode should be the thing I've been waiting for. Kirei vs Kiritsugu. Come on we need the Emiya theme in this part.
And it looks like they'll be able to fit it all. Last episode should contain the aftermath of the war plus the epilogue. Should be tight but it will fit, hopefully.

Maybe, according to the preview, ep 24 will have

If so, there must be at least 48 min, or I'll send UFO a pie stuffed with sh*t.

My thoughts exactly. Anyways, all my feelings between the friendship of Rider and Waver. They were really my favorite team, to be honest. The graphics for this episode were top-notch, especially the part were Gilgamesh takes out Ea.

You may perhaps have good PRO points but those treasured weapons really come from him? Or once again he defeated Gods to get them? Since I assume Gods were defeated to claim those weapons then perhaps I cannot agree of his ways with such weapons using the weapon of another defeated may be noble in certain code of conducts but I don't see it noble at all as a code of conduct itself.

For me it's far more noble to bury the person with their weapon.

But then how were they stolen? Other than perhaps it being a punishment to go against the Gods, I see nothing more of it. The weapons were originally belonging not to him but were given and hence can be taken back.

Anyway I won't go further. I just have this concept philosophy over Gil being lame and being negative towards him. Sry, my hatred is like that towards him.

Damnit, I admit the episode was great, but I sort of expected something more from Enuma Elish unleashing than several seconds of spinning and a nonchalant swing. I mean, Excalibur had a sequence for almost a five minutes before unleashing, so I sort of hopped for at least a bit more build up.

On the other hand, we got a great animation of Gate's key.

DAT EA

This is what happen when King of Heroes fight seriously. Damn.

I was not ready. So GLORIOUS.

BGM this ep was aswsome.

RIDER man.. Even I knew it was coming I still felt overwhelming... It'll take a while to get over this for sure -__-

And Waver got approved by 2 Kings that night. He has officially became a man.

(will comment about Berserker vs Saber later as I'm still recovering from the epicness)

I crey. So fucking hard. Rider was easily one of the best characters on the show. I liked what they did with Waver, making him Rider's retainer so that he wouldn't be killed as well. Is this the first time we've seen Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasm? It was extremely OP. So glad Saber finally got a reality check with Lancelot being Berserker. It was a plot twist, but I kinda got the feeling that it was only made so Saber could have character development.

Wait... I heard Irisviel's voice at the end. Next episode seems to be finally the showdown of Kotomine and Kiritsugu.

And yay possible double episode!

Gilgamesh is the oldest heroic spirit, it's only fair that he's the STRONGEST.
You sound like someone who doesn't know about Fate series at all seriously. EA has always been Gilgamesh's greatest treasure as it's the ONLY Anti-World NP in this war, he didn't "swung open a Deus Ex machina". It's called "Anti-World" for a reason.

Gilgamesh acknowledged Rider and praised Velvet Waver's loyalty. He's not that bad of a character, isn't he?..

And about those weapons, Gilgamesh owns them according to the VN.. but he's not a "user", he's just the owner of these weapons but he doesn't know how to use all of those weapons well, the only weapon he truly has is EA which is basically the strongest noble phantasm.

Two more episodes to go. Just a couple of fights left, Kirei vs. Kiritsugu, Berserker vs. Saber and Saber vs. Gilgamesh.. and we're back to Fate/Stay Night.. Hope they animate the Heaven's Feel route :D.

Gilgamesh IS the oldest heroic spirit and that alone guarantee him a top seat in terms of power within Nasuverse. All of his treasures are representations of HIS heroic deeds. There's a reason why in F/SN Nasu continuously emphasized that he is the original. If anything, the other heroic spirits' weapons are "children" of weapons from GOB, based on Gilgamesh's tales and treasures stolen from the GOB.

But all of that is not important. The important part is that Gil and Iskander had a glorious fight and they respected the fuck out of each other. So why would you tarnish this fight with meaningless hatred?
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

Alexander in fact had some Noble ways of paying respect to his men that have died upon their burial. Gilgamesh would merely spit and insult his defeated opponents. Well IMO that is. Hence a small upstanding I have against Gilgamesh. Moreover I am very CON for Gilgamesh and in fact wished Alexander won over him.
We don't know exactly where he got the weapons from, but as far as the Epic of Gilgamesh goes, he was a hero that traveled around everywhere. Maybe he found some, maybe he took some (Mesopotamians conquered each other every other day). The gods also even gave him a few weapons. That said, siding with the Mesopotamian gods? The ones that created mankind to be a slave race? Those selfish man-children make Gilgamesh look like the kindest, most noble person ever to walk the earth. There's a reason why Gilgamesh is alone and doesn't have his "one comrade."

...Also uh

Alexander is the King of Conquerors. He may not ride into battle with other's weapons, but he sure as hell took other people's stuff.

Damnit, I admit the episode was great, but I sort of expected something more from Enuma Elish unleashing than several seconds of spinning and a nonchalant swing. I mean, Excalibur had a sequence for almost a five minutes before unleashing, so I sort of hopped for at least a bit more build up.

On the other hand, we got a great animation of Gate's key.
This. I knew this would happen, but it was still disappointing. I could've sworn Rider got hit by Gate of Babylon more than twice in the novels too. Oh well, at least we got the Reality Marble crumbling, and Gilgamesh's conversation with Waver. Great episode otherwise though, Gilgamesh and Alexander were at their best here, and delicious Saber despair.

Also lol, Saber vs Archer

The jaw dropping visuals are even more over the top this episode. My mind was epicly blown by the appearance of Ea, completely fitting of the creation star which sunders heaven and earth.

Gil really loves making people think they have a chance of killing him doesn't he? He does the good ol' enkidu to lancer and berserker in FSN and now to rider.

He never used Enkidu on Cu Chulainn
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

It was the scene I was expecting more of the LN and the anime did it well.

Again, we see the extended power of Gilgamesh. It remains the most powerful and Retera the world of Fate. (Well, except Nasu that does not use the potential and makes it weaker in FSN (VN). Finally it was he who wrote the story.) `

In the novel actually i think that Gil has even a better attitude towards Rider than the anime, because Rider was the only servant that Gil respected in the entire Fate universe. It was an honor to Gil to be able to kill a king like Rider, to whom he considered not a mongrel but a king. Besides he spared Waver´s life as a way to show his respect to Rider.

I dont think he stole anything. It is cited on Epic of Gilgamesh that he had several craftsman. If Gae Bolg was on his treasury, probably it was made on Uruk not on Ireland, and only after came to Lancer. If he did steal those weapons, it was a sumerian weapon since Gilgamesh only fought in Sumeria/Mesopotania, must have stole it in other cities. Actually historically, it is surprising that soldiers of Uruk conquered Sumerian cities by two methods that didn't involve swords: Burning a city OR like in Hamoukar´s case, hurling more than 1,200 sling-fired bullets.

Also, not to mention Enkidu. It was not shown, but Gil had a serious attachment to his best friend, he is capable of being very loyal to those who become his friends.
(he even named his chains "Enkidu", which ironically were the ones who bind Rider and brought his dead).

I cried like hell with Rider, but I admit I felt a great respect coming from Gil, specially saying that garden quote said in serious respectful tone.
Gil didnt spit on Rider or laughed upon his defeat, it was truly kingly: a fight between two kings.

Saber should have been more shocked than that and where is “… Do you really hate me so much, my friend…? Even if you have become as such… Do you hate me so much, Knight of the Lake?!”I hope they add it at the next ep or at least in the BD.I feel like they cut the best lines.Aside from that it was more than awesome.The change from CG to normal was really good too.Kariya's scene was nicely done even though it was a bit different from the LN(you could even say that it was better in the anime) .

That Ea.Even Ea is so much more amazing when a good studio handles the job.The destruction of Rider's RM was amazing.Better than my imagination at least.And the final moments of the fight were awesome although they didnt made Rider get more wounds.They should have done that to show his tenacity.You dont need to be FSN Heracles to charge against weapons that are shoot directly at you.

Yeah, you right Orulyon. In the novel, Gilgamesh said he took Ea in the beginning of combat only against an opponent who respects, have a great power and worth it. He was respectful with him in this scene.


I have not heard the quote: Now, Bucephalus, to conquest

Knew Rider was going to get axed this episode still he went out epically. I really would have been depressed if Waver would have died too. T_T

WTF Is That Enuma Elish? I Like The Swirling Wave In F/SN Than This. At First I Thought He Summoned A High-Tech Unknown Treasury LOL.

But Then, I Never Knew That Heaven's Chain Is Coming. I Thought A Surprised Gae Bolg Or Some Random Treasury Would Pierced Rider.

I Went Goosebumps On This Episode 5/5. :O

2 More To Go~.

Damn that was a splendid episode. Rider's final charge against Archer was breathtaking. They really impressed me with the animation this episode, the part where Ea demolished Rider's soldiers was especially well animated. Can't wait to see the showdown between Kiritsugu and Kirei next week; it should be the best fight of the series if they do it right.

R.I.P. Rider.

Rider's death was the most heroic, manly death I've ever seen.
Lancelot looks awesome. And I never thought of it before, but Saber is lesbian haha.

Lancelot looks like Caster in a way with those eyes.

Rider had a great ride (no pun). May his spirit continue to bring hope and dreams.
