Holy shit, this battle is intense. Loved the way it was animated and the OST used. I am also impressed by how most of the scenes were animated. Rin and Shirou sure got their hands full this time.

Not surprised that Rin is a bit pissed off at what happened. Anyways, I thought the performance Saber put up this episode was actually impressive. Archer's attack is also quite something.

Loved the way they extended the fight, especially giving time for Rin to shine too(that felt like right out of Mahoyo), albeit against someone like Illya it is very hard to do ANYTHING

The OST tracks playing in the EP very MAJESTIC - loved the soundtrack for Berserker, very fitting. And hey finally a PROPER Berserker unlike in certain DEEN adaptation that does not exist.

The theme that played during Archer firing his signature thing everyone has been waiting for tho...that was even more brilliant.


Otherwise the certain church original scene was handed cryptically as expected.Without being thoroughly spoiled already, you would not know the intention of it.

I was surely expecting it to cover a little more material.

Pretty damn awesome saber vs berserker. She blew up his torso here using a prana brust.

That scene and the buildup with the saber talk was too awesome. Also, dat caladbolg 2, loved the OST there. B)

This episode lived up to my expectations. Loved the anime original scenes.

I will admit that I'm not all that impressed by the OST as some other people, but it sounded pretty good at some parts, notably during that new Ilya scene.

Caladbolg was amazing. My only regret is that I didn't get to hear the song that played during the fight in Realta Nua.

SRSLY THO, the nods and winks to all the other stuff are perfect so far.

If anything, this episode REALLY hyped me up for Herz next year and for inevitable Mahoyo translation decades latter.


All the anime original scenes so far fit perfectly well with the events WITHOUT Changing the context of what is going on or the key events.

Sailor Moon Crystal writers should fucking learn.

If they continue it this way, I will have no problems with whatever Nasu-written scenes added

He proves himself to be a freaking good director.

The scenes were written by Nasu. Not Miura.

Miura is still to blame for the cutdown monologues.

Screenplays are directed by him...

He is the one who transforms what Nasu wrote into anime...

Also, this is not VN. Monologues have to be cut down. He can't keep them all.

They did such an amazing job on Berserker's bestial appearance and damn, he got some moves, lol. And dat Caladbolg including badass smirk! =O

Was surprised by the amount of original scenes but loved them all.

Glorious animation, OST, and everything. As expected.

There were some distance/height issues during the BerserkerxIlya scenes.

And I dont think that Invisible Air,Rank C, should be able to get pass GH.

The *********blast and Caladbolg 2 were awesome.

Rin vs Ilya made Ilya ACTUALLY LOOK like the strongest Master.We always knew that but we never got to see it in the VN.

Cant wait for the BD fixes in some animation and sound issues.

Waiting for subs for further thoughts....

DAT gore tho....

Caladbolg II ~

That was awesome, I'll wait for subs before my final verdict. But the lack of Chanting in the mage battle felt weird.

I guess the level of spell-slinging was low enough to not warrant any one-counts or anything.

Golly we needed that Illya scene tho

Friggin EPIC!! DAT ANIMATION *A* DAT OST!!!

Love the subtle expressions Saber made when she saw Illya and heard Einzbern :3

Dat Saber vs Bahsaka!!! The choreography during the fights was amazing!! They really depicted Berserker's agility awesomely >.<!!

And how much of a monster he is not dying after all that shit :P. But the same can be said about Saber and Archer. Both showed they're absolute BEASTS!!! DAT CALADABOLG!!! And Dat Archer Grin >.<!! Nuclear Explosion just went down XD

Illya's alchemy was nice too ^^

Seeing a glimpse of Kirei and Blonde Foreigner was nice :3 And Rin's side faces were really well drawn this ep :D

Considering it was pretty much a playaround skirmish, that was fitting.


I doubt Rin had any real hopes at actually being successful, but she had to try anyway.

Let's remember that she is STILL weakened at this point too(from Archer summoning) and won't be at full power for at leat one more day or so.

Ah, the rank C only comes cos it's not very 'special'. With good uses; Prana burst giving her momentum, Invisible Air's enhanced precision, e.t.c. But it probably only took 0-1 of his lives anyway.

Holy crap the fight was amazing. Archer's arrows are sooo much better to see animated than reading them. And dat motherfucking Caladbolg II, dat smirk too. And good job based Ufo, unlike certain other adaptations with Berserker fights size does not mean slow. Those breakdancing moves though lol.
Rin vs. Illya was beautiful too.

5/5

Need that OST soon, there's a track that played during the fight that I REALLY liked ^^

power has nothing to do with rank though.

So yeah, it still would not work.

Need to rewatch episode to judge whether it did work though.

They had to show his NP somewhere, in the absence of the fate route.

Still.. Saber fought zerker equally in her disadvantaged state and even landed a mortal wound.

Seems a bit strange.

Illya gave absolutely no fucks about this fight. To her this was more like a meet-and-greet, lol. Its no wonder Berserker was not trying at full power.

Nope. Difference is in Fate route Archer was wounded so she went against him on her own. In UBW Archer was helping her and she managed to take the fight away from her Master, so she doesn't have to worry about him getting killed.
