Whoa quite an episode. Looks like Saber is introduced to Shirou's friends.

Rin tests her abilities a bit against some adversaries as well. Not bad. Still, with the strange events happening around town, there's always danger lurking like with Berserker.

Its good to see that they are adding int he things they did not adapt in the prologue into episodes(like Shirou's backstory).Means we are getting Rin's information in there too when it comes up again and they are simply removing stuff that gets repeated again.

Also yay for the actual psychologically-fit trigger scenes for his ptsd. SO far they are representing Shirou very well.

Ended at a bit earlier point than I expected, but the predictions for what will be adapted in next episode will mostly be the same as they stick to a sensible pacing.

Otherwise yet another pretty much 1 by 1 adaptation episode albeit with a bit of expansions there and there that explain some of character decisions.


5/5

Holy shit at the naked Illya.

Good to see that the aren't rushing stuff just to get to the action scenes. Pretty entertaining episode on the whole and Ayako scenes were the best.

Daylight saving time is over, mira. It airs one hour earlier for you.

Btw, Ilya said that Berserker needs three days to recover one life.

We actually already knew Berserker can regenerate lives since 2004. It was again mentioned in CM 3 I think.

Six lives in three days is what we already knew (probably me just misinterpreting that sentence in the novel). Three days for one life now it is, officially and everyone who objects to this can keep quiet.

Bahsaka survives on 1 life, regenerates all of them, weapons used against him first time are useless now, repeat until he is immune to everything.

Yup, definitely most haxx so far.

It was a joke about the guys who said "Fate/Zero sequel confirmed" last episode.

It would work completely
.

I'd think that's what Illya was trying to do even, apart from greeting Tohsaka family and that boy.

If F/SN Berserker was summoned as an Archer then he would have just one shot every other Servant and ended the war on the first day.

Again, adding a new layer of clothing changes a lot in appearance. Saber looks fantastic with that jacket. Too bad she's missing the scarf from the OP.

Basically a reset of Shirou's daily life after a rough night but with the addition of a freeloaderguest. Sakura and Taiga are not amused. Though it's just a temporary peace that he needs to savor.
I enjoy these kinds of moments in the VN but I guess people will complain about how boring it is. I can also see people complaining about how they already know those details about Servants but it's necessary for Shirou and not them. Plus if anyone began from here and not from F/Z you wouldn't know these things yet so it's necessary information. Ah well.

It's already that part next week huh. Should be starting to get rough for Shirou from here on.
And Ayako is seriously underrated. She looked pretty nice there when she was spinning the keys.

Another interpretation of the final scene:

Archer: Rin, he is flirting with other girls, what will you do?

Rin: I will kill him.

Lol.

I would say half of the reason is her own feeling for Shirou.
