Yeah that wasn't any particular reference to FZ that ufotable added, it was already in the VN.


Its literally sum up of their VERY different experiences in their respective prologues (EP0 an EP1) and Rin's realization of that.
I know it was already in the VN and had an established purpose, that's why I worded it that way. But when you have the episode start off with Kerry being relieved by Shirou's takeaway from his raising him, and then the episode ending emphasizing that aspect while showing Shirou reflecting on it, it's very easy to see it that way.

He knows that Rin said that.
He simply does not give a fuck about that and follows through with how he said he will view her.


That's kind of the definition of "thick headed"

You could say Shirou's a little thick-headed, but Rin hadn't made a move at all. He knows there's a huge contradiction between what she says and what she does. He can easily see through Rin and therefore sees no reason to take her as an enemy.

While Shirou didn't take her seriously at first until she attacked him, he even caught her off-guard later on by asking if she wanted to resume the fight. He didn't have reason to take her seriously until that moment because he knows deep down Rin's just stubborn and doesn't want to fight him - let alone kill him.

Shirou's constantly embarrasing her and exposing her vulnerable side because he knows those things. The things he does are almost like saying "I know you won't admit it, but it's plain obvious you're just trying to put up a front now and you know it!"

All I need to give an episode of this anime a 10 is:

Archer interacting with Rin

Kirei saying a couple of words with his deep voice.

Thats all I need

Spoiler tags aren't magical reality warping devices that allow you to drop mad spoilers everywhere and anywhere without care you know.

That opening scene made me sad, with Kiritsugu looking so weak... He looked souless.



I actually think he looked more at peace than at any time in F/Z, that's what was so touching.

And yet the whole episode, word by word, is direct adaptation of the VN with absolutely nothing added on. Really can't see how that's something "to reference FZ".

It's referencing an F/Z scene that is itself referencing an F/SN scene.

And thus the cycle is complete.

I've just removed 8 spoilers that were posted on the same subject matter. If you read a spoiler please don't quote it in your reply telling the poster that it is a spoiler. That just gives moderators another post to remove.

Mod Note: Don't Spoil! This includes making comments that pretty much give away major plot points, even if you don't explicitly state it. Major plot spoilers even if tagged will be removed, and continued posting of such will be sanctioned.
Please don't feed the trolls!

Like I said I know that and understand this was all outlined and established in the VN. That's why I'm wording it the way I am, and I literally never said "to reference FZ" lol. I'm only saying that certain emphasis in the direction at some points helps give depth to people like Kerry in ways that FZ watchers can appreciate, in a different way than one might appreciate it in the VN.

Oh the many faces of Rin.
Glad Purple-haired servant made an appearance this time around.
And Kiritsugu ;^; best dad.

Mod Note: unrevealed servant name changed to description.

Dat Shirou, saving Tohsaka again :D (as much as she tries to hate him, she can't :)) Nice done, Ufotable.


Still not fan of Rin's nose from her profile though. But other than that, it was good, Rider was badass and Tohsaka's speech at the end of episode was nice conclusion of this week's dose of FSN :)

This is probably the most overrated series in history. The show isn't bad, and it's decent, but it's not as fantastic or amazing that many people hyped it up to be.

I don't even keep track of my anime list, but I've watched all of the available episodes so far for this show, and so far it's nothing special. Just because I believe this show isn't the AOTY means I'm trolling. I'll still continue watching, but I'm losing interest in it as each week passes by.

TBH would not work.

That hairstyle would make Rin look like some librarian.
And Saber would just be adding some handles to be grabbed by in possible fights.

Yeah, bad idea xD

you might want to this in the first post because. Just reading in the thread is spoilers and VN comparisons. They are in spoiler tags(most of them). But it doesn't add to the episode discussion.

And can you take few secs and write the things you don't like in this show? Cause seeing many of those 'Hated' rankings here on this episode I'm just wondering myself what's the main reason people don't like this.

Whenever the ending pops up at the last minute and a half, I thought Ufotable is trying to support Rin x Archer when they're standing by each other in contrast to Shirou x Saber sitting by each other.

Recently a nice picture popped up on Pixiv in regard to your claim, but it's extremely nsfw for me to post it. Hint: saber isn't in it.

Far be it for me to question how forums should be moderated - no matter how fatuous it may seem.

I can't remember; did Mitsuzuri also go missing in the VN? I don't recall if that was the case so I was surprised in this episode.

Mod Note: Based on the rapidity on which those hated votes came online, and the very different distribution of poll responses in this episode to previous episodes, I'm pretty certain that a lot of those "1" votes as well as some of the other "2" and "3" votes were posted by alt accounts in an effort to troll thread readers and manipulate the poll results.

There is no difference They are just playing a DEEN version and lying saying it it different.

So far the story is the exact same. Fights are prettier I guess.

yey rider. always liked her design. pretty cool fighting style though i have no clue why she is called rider you kinda would expect a mount with a name like this.


rin's i want to kill you, now i don't, now i want to again is a bit annoying.

[servant] talking about removing shirou's eye made me laugh because of who shirou's seiyuu is

I'm reasonably certain its more a response to the whole priest thing and some of their honestly outrageous and inconsiderate behavior like spoiling things for with no regard for people that are just watching the anime because they are seen as "secondaries", policing threads for any dissenting opinion on the show and just having treated the threads like their own personal chat room and members only club until the mods eventually stepped in and said enough is enough.

Maybe things cool down from here as they already seem to be and as the show starts to pick up, but I can only imagine how these threads would look right now were the mods not being more proactive. I think in this shows case a lot of people like the show well enough but just hate the fan culture and fan boying surrounding it cause otherwise there's not much to hate about the show itself that I can see. Not exactly fair, but its kind of like what did some people expect when they decided to act the way they did about the show, pissing people off and probably creating a bit of an anti movement that wouldn't be there otherwise.
