Now the question remains how many episodes have they burned off the season already since we've had the equivalent of what should have been 4 already. I don't know if this counts as two or if the last one really counts at all or if there's going to be 11 more after this or as few as 8.


That's actually an interesting question. Personally I hope they stick with the 48min format and give us the entire show in half the time. Since I know what's going to happen I'm just really just in it for the fights, so the faster they get to them the better.

I think it is just because of Saber's high luck stat rather than her dodging gay bulge which always pierces the heart. And maybe Lancer's E-Rank luck :D

This was just as good as episode 0, if not better. Shirou's daily life may have been boring from the start but it sure got interesting towards the end!

Some nice flashback of his childhood with Kiritsugu. Shirou learned a great deal of what a Hero of Justice actually is. Such nice words of wisdom!

I think Shirou probably just wanted to catch a quick glimpse of Archer vs. Lancer's epic battle. Poor guy had to pay the price in full. Very unfortunate..

Saber's intro was too epic! I love how she refused to give away what her Noble Phantasm is by trying to confuse Lancer. XD
Battle segment's epicness went beyond my expectation! Absolute Très Bien! >.<
> "So, you dodged my undodgeable blow, Saber." XD

Great episode! Little glimpses of Illya and Gilgamesh was some nice teasers for upcoming awesomeness. (^^)

If not to go into the fact that TM never ever referenced it(even the type moon fes op video only had game animation) or the way it contradicts the canon, here's 10Th Anni of fate timeline from official type moon mag.

It was pretty solid. I gave it a 4/5 because the pacing isn't the best, but that's an inherent aspect of the beginning of the story. You could just say it's a 4/5 compared to better ufotable-quality episodes. The prologue was awesome and the series is bound to get more and more interesting at this point.

Lancer's noble phantasm was very cool, but it could have been a little clearer imo. I loved the way Saber aggressively pushed him back though. And I get the feeling Ufotable's Shirou is going to deliver. I'm really looking forward to the next episode!

Even if this is Ufotable's adaptation, I clearly see it has a much more lighter tone than Fate Zero, dat epic fight between Lancer and Saber was epic as expected, but having showed us the bro-sis conflict between Sakura and Shiki, I wonder if we'll see their story well fullfiled, even if this isn't Heaven's Feel.

Its probably just put those scenes for the OP and ED in order to not spoil things. In Fate/Zeros OP there were also scenes that actually never happened in the anime.

I think the tone of UBW is bound to be lighter at the beginning because the war hasn't even begun yet. And Sakura's brother is actually called Shinji. I'm pretty confident they're going to stick to what you should know in UBW and leave HF for the movie.

F*** It! Watched the Raws <_< And surprisingly understood 90% of it XD

I'm sad that Shiro's monologue is being cut down quite a bit D: But it still wasn't bad at all. Most of the scenes were conveyed right and Shiro's character and how mindfucked he feels can be understood from how this went on.

Saber vs Lancer was Glorious as usual from ufotable *A*

And OP was really cool. ED was pretty nice too, visually.

Well good stuff, but they can still improve on it. Let's hope for the best :3

They outright stated they are adapting JUST UBW. Whatever new scenes will be there, will be to complement UBW and not something from other two routes.

That'll be a pretty good lead on from Zero, concerning Saber at least.

I bet any new viewer to the franchise has no idea what Shiro is doing when he was fixing the oven and when he failed at night with his trace on...etc

That's my only complaint. If they just kept some of Shiro's monologue there to give a glimpse of his daily training that would've been good but they just had to show more of SOB Shinji and his Sakura's problems <_<

Really? We're going to miss lots of development concerning Saber and ending it with Continuation of the Dream wouldn't make any sense.

They might be leaving them for later on. I'm not sure if doing all the info dumps at once halfway through is a good idea though.

I am thinking they are doing it as a mystery.
. These two episodes are supposed to hook us and make us wonder what is going on - then it will dial back next week and we will slowly learn what is going on through the rest of show.

Oh shit, a second 45 minutes episode? What can I ask more?

Well, now the real story start, from Shirou POV. We had the ''senpai! senpai!'' that some people hate so much (personally, I find them cute :P ). We saw Shirou dying and being revived by the one true best girl.



Just look at that face, she just has been threatened to death by a super powerful servant and she ain't flinching.

Saber finally apppeared, and it was glorious.



I really loved how they adapted the fighting scene with Lancer. It had more intensity than in the VN (duh). I was a bit saddened though that they didn't adapted after Shirou was ''killed'' when


Dat Gáe Bolg.... It was really great. I do remember now that it launch a first attack that is used as a lure and then strike his real powerful attack. But of course, that's just usual kid play for her. She ain't giving no fuck about your powerful attack, mister.

That character should ring a bell to people who watched Fate/zero.

Re-read my post, I actually said 'some awesome stuff'. Meaning: Saber in her 'new' out fit, Sakura looking adorakawaii, Saber vs 'that dude', Rider being glorious, Saber vs Lancer

Didn't like this episode at all beginning really dragged and Saber vs Lancer was pretty bad is like they tried to hard to make lancers attack look good but failed terribly, hope this episode is not a sample to whats to come.
