They need to pander to filthy otaku to sell more BDs.

Amazing ep leaving aside the serious lack of monologue ^^;

Dat jelly Saber :3 Adorable <3
But yeah Archer's style fits Shirou more ^^ Even trying Dual wielding XD
It's amazing how much he improved in one day just from copying. I actually liked how they showed him training his dual wielding at the dojo more than using it right away.

The Rin waiting for Shirou scene was kawaii <3 Dat blushing face :3 Archer must be pissed having a Seal used on him to not hurt Shirou anymore XD

Awesome action scenes as usual. Dat Shirou BAness!! The Saber summoning and ass kicking was epic.

So nice seeing Shinji shitting his pants XD Dat First person view vs Rider! GODDAMMIT THOUGH!!! Why so brutal T^T Poor Rider D: Her neck!! The twisting looked so cringe inducing for a Rider fan T^T

Rin being Mindf***ed by how chill Shirou is with all these "Bodies" and him mentioning being used to Corpses was nicely depicted :D

Huge plothole here

"Matous are incapable of producing a master"- Rin

Shinji is master.

It's like the writers aren't even trying.

2/5
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.

People died way faster in UBW than in F/Z, there is no arguing this unless your here to say that F/Z was way more grim dark than F/SN.


F/Z was way more mature than this kiddy harem show.

Enjoyed the person describing Rin like that xD

Shinji being like that. Activating the field and then Rider died, quite the scene :/

The graphics were nice as always and the tension of Caster and her master!

RIP Rider. Seriously though her corpse was freaky as hell. How far did her head get twisted? 720 degrees? 360?

Oh man. Dem Shirou and Archer connections. Finally get to see him do some work.

Yeah.
One of the swords that one of aforementioned golems were holding looked like sword shaped blob, which is really just lazy from a studio like Ufotable. Hopefully they fix it up in the BD.

They are the guys that "fixed" an already awesome FZ Berserker.It would be hilarious if they ignored that.

Hmm. The lack of inner monologues is starting to be a bit much. And the golems did look off. For now those are minor issues, and the rest of the episode was really good, so we'll see how it goes.

That Rider's corpse though, shit.

Saber getting a bit jealous at Shirou using Archer's style.. :3 . He must be quite talented to get a hang of using that style already!

Rin waiting outside the classroom for Shirou was cute! That black-haired guy described her situation almost perfectly. XD
Shirou is still dense; asking Rin if she forgot her lunch money when she was trying to eat together with him. XD

Saber summoning and her immediate charge was awesome! Those golems were taken care of under 10 seconds!

Shinji being pathetic was hilarious, but I didn't want Rider to die.. That twisted neck though. >.<

Great episode! No Archer this time. He's probably a bit upset that he can't attack Shirou anymore, not until his master's alliance is void.

I loved that facial expression. Perfectly showcases Shirou's mental state.

I am quite sure we will get an anime original Shirou Episode somewhere in the season now though.

As expected.
Though I suppose with only UBW that is the impression it gives.
It'll probably be worse when

The problem is people don't seem to realize there are 3 routes in the novel. The characters who don't get much exposure in one route tend to get a whole lot more in at least one of the other ones, if not in both of them. This applies to the majority of the characters - both masters and servants - if you think about it.

A certain "plothole/inconsistency" in ep2, his words about the town tour,


This isnt beforehand knowledge.It's 1+1=2.

Shirou's flashback in episode 4 (notice his facial expression):


Notice that same facial expression in this episode, and notice how calm and serious his demeanor was in contrast to Rin's.




There shouldn't be any doubt at this point that something is very wrong with Shirou and that the show recognizes it, what with the above scenes displaying his mental state and how naive and idealistic he'd been acting. Is he idealistic because he's simply a goody-goody naive shounen protagonist, or is it perhaps that he experienced such real shit in his life that it somehow influenced his though process?


In any case, great episode once again! The introductory phase concluded with the previous episode and now the first casualty has occurred brutally, signaling the story's transition to the next phase. Anime-only viewers, I bid you

Its all in source material too. Good foreshadowing works that way because you can connect the dots.

Madoka slight spoiler:
Except that by the time you reach UBW, unless you read the prologue again, you will probably already have forgotten the first GIANT ASS hint while others may pass over your head.

That isnt possible in this adaptation unless if you arent actually paying attention,.

Meh episode, some changes:
-Shirou gave Tohsaka that drink and that whole scene is full of skipped infodump about magic.
-Tohsaka looks really dumbfounded when Shirou tells her Shinji set up the boundary field after making fun of Shinji
-Shirou doesn't know how to use a command spell so Tohsaka tells him how to

I know your pain Riderbros, must fun class gets treated like shit.

Rin was just a plot device to make Shirou look awesome TBH.

All we are missing is "Sasuga Oniisama" and it will be Mahouka all over again.

"I'm used to seeing dead bodies"

I almost cut myself on that edge.
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.
